News and commentary about President* Joe Biden

Introduction by The Editor:
The news media declared Joe Biden to be the winner of the 2020 presidential election on November 4th, long before any state had so certified.  Then the Biden handlers set up the fictitious "Office of the President Elect" for his television appearances, to promote the perception that he actually won fair and square.  Officially, there is no such office.  There is nothing magical about any president's "First 100 Days" in office, yet that's all the news media could talk about in January.  One might be tempted to ask, What's the rush?  Indeed, Joe Biden is now acting like a dictator, just like Barack H. Obama, issuing dozens of unilateral decrees, in the form of executive orders, the purpose of which is to legislate from the White House all the policies that the Congress wouldn't be able to pass, and immediately implement the Democrats' socialist platform.  But Joe Biden is just a puppet:  He is a senile old man who will sign anything his handlers tell him to sign.  He will read whatever words come up on the teleprompter, just like Barack H. Obama.  He is apparently trying to weaken America's economy, just like Barack H. Obama.  The national news media are doing everything possible to portray Joe Biden in a positive light, just as they did for Barack H. Obama.  The Biden presidency is starting to look like Obama's third term.

The biggest mystery in America today is this:  Who is running the Executive Branch of the federal government?


Biden's Presidency Seems Ready to End.  We're now six weeks or so into the sham presidency of Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr., and already the end of the Biden Era seems near.  A bumbling shell of a man, constantly attended by his wife, Jill, and with the lengthening shadow of his vice president, Kamala Harris, looming in the background, Biden seems incapable of doing anything except signing the slew of executive orders his handlers shove under his nose until at last, exhausted, his team "calls a lid" on his workday and packs him back off upstairs at the White House for a nice lie-down before noontime.  It would be funny if it weren't so tragic — or perhaps it would be tragic if it weren't so funny.  No one has ever mistaken Biden for an intellectual; indeed he has long acted like the bully at the end of an Irish bar, full of bluster and braggadocio, without being able in the slightest to back up his boasts.  The good news is, he's not likely to be there very long.  The bad news is who might replace him[.]

Foreign News Shows Are Now Raising Questions About Joe Biden's Cognitive Issues.  We've been reporting on Joe Biden's issues, Democrats have been trying to avoid talking about them.  But what are some of the folks in the rest of the world thinking about him?  They can see everything we're seeing and see it without having the 24/7 American mainstream media trying to spin it.  At least some of them are seeing it and are worried.  Here's Paul Murray on his show from Australia via Sky News interviewing the NY Post's Miranda Devine and they spoke about their concerns that he was cognitively impaired.  [Video clip]

Jen Psaki Explains Why American People Do Not See Joe Biden Press Conferences.  The White House head of narrative engineering is questioned about why the current occupant of the executive branch does not give press conferences where he can be asked random questions by the American Media.  Obviously, we already know why the control agents around JoeBama do not allow him to engage with the media without careful controls, previewed questions and scripted answers in advance.  Biden is cognitively impaired.  They have to retain the ruse of competency until they are prepared to replace him on schedule.  [Video clip]

Trump Reloaded.  Conservatives will not disagree with Trump when it comes to the issues he mentioned.  These issues included Biden allowing more immigrants to unlawfully cross our southern border and resuming a so-called "catch-and-release" policy Trump ended, the killing of the Keystone XL pipeline, which has led to lost jobs and higher energy prices, rejoining the Paris climate agreement and withdrawing Trump's restoration of UN sanctions on Iran, and the reversal of his energy policies, which Trump claims caused gasoline prices to soar by "30 percent" since he left office.  He predicted a gallon of gas could eventually cost "$5 $6 $7" dollars unless those policies are reversed.

Psaki's Revelation as to Who Actually Wrote Biden Proclamation Speaks Volumes.  On Tuesday [3/2/2021], Joe Biden issued a proclamation for Read Across America day.  We wrote about it and noted how Biden appeared to cancel Dr. Seuss by not mentioning him when he's been integrally connected to the day in prior presidential proclamations and since the event came into being in 1998.  The event is even on March 2, Seuss' birthday. [...] Jen Psaki was asked why Biden didn't mention Dr. Seuss in the proclamation for the event and her response was troubling on a couple of levels.  [Video clip]

Joe Biden Hosts Video Conference with President of Mexico: 'We Are Equal'.  President Joe Biden said Monday at the White House that the United States and Mexico are "equal" in North America, promising to work closely with the Mexican government.  "In the Obama-Biden administration, we made a commitment that we would look at Mexico as an equal, not as somebody who is south of our border," Biden said in his opening remarks.  "We are equal."

The Editor says...
Obviously it is a lie to say that Mexico and the U.S. are equal.  The Mexicans certainly don't believe it; otherwise, why would it be necessary to put up a fence to keep immigrants out of the U.S.?  Why do so many people climb the fence anyway?

President omits any mention of Dr. Seuss from his Read Across America Day.  President Biden has omitted Dr. Seuss from Read Across America Day, held annually on the children's author's birthday on March 2.  Biden made a proclamation on Monday, declaring Tuesday to be Read Across America Day, but he broke presidential tradition when he left out any mention of Dr. Seuss.  The omission came after a Virginia school system dropped the iconic children's books because of 'racial undertones'.

The Editor says...
President* Biden only reads what the teleprompter says.  If any mention of Dr. Seuss was omitted, it wasn't omitted by Biden.

This Administration Is Already a Failure.  Obama's administration was a policy disaster, but it was at least a competently implemented disaster.  The Zombie Administration is a disaster in both form and substance.  What has this desiccated, old weirdo achieved in his six weeks of semiconsciousness in the Oval Office?  Well, there's putting tens of thousands of Americans out of jobs, including union guys who voted for him.  There's telling the American people that their kids can't go to school because public school teachers take priority over children because of science or something.  There's another war in the Middle East.  Those are kind of accomplishments, but not really good ones.  His administration had someone named "Ducklo" who was mean to women.  He had another who wants to be a woman and who wants to let your little boys be surgically turned into women.  And Neera Tanden's confirmation was blocked because she was a woman and totally not because she was an inept loudmouth.  If this is normalcy, what's a freak show look like?

Crazy Old Biden and the Countdown to Kamala.  President Joe Biden is a shadow of his former self.  Long gone is the aggressive, pugnacious, and partisan Democrat who mistreated Supreme Court justice Clarence Thomas in the latter's confirmation hearings.  Today, Americans see a president who is clearly mentally diminished and is getting worse on a daily basis.  During the campaign, Biden refused to submit to a cognitive test. [...] Biden refused to take a test because it would show he is in mental decline.  His last medical report was issued in December of 2019.  While his doctor, Kevin O'Connor of George Washington University, labeled Biden "vigorous" and fit to successfully perform as president, other experts did not share that view.  Dr. David Scheiner, the former personal physician for Barack Obama, claimed that Biden is "not a healthy guy."  In fact, U.S. congressman Ronny Jackson (R-Texas), the former White House physician for President Obama and President Donald Trump, said Biden "does not have the mental capacity, the cognitive ability to serve as our commander-in-chief and head of state."

Priest: Joe Biden Is 'Most Aggressively Anti-Catholic President in History'.  Joe Biden is the "most aggressively anti-Catholic President in history" despite his outward show of piety, Virginia priest and director of Human Life International, Father Jerry Pokorsky, states.  "For most of his political life — from his consistent pro-abortion record to his officiating at a gay wedding in 2016 — despite his Catholic affiliation and public pious practices, Joe Biden has magnified and institutionalized countless major violations of the Ten Commandments," Father Pokorsky writes in an essay Friday [2/26/2021].  "The hypocrisy rivals that of the chief priests and Pharisees and is worthy of the same condemnation," the priest declares.  "Indeed, Biden is the most aggressively anti-Catholic President in history."  The reason for the harsh assessment of Biden's record is the dichotomy between his outward show of piety on the one hand and his record of supporting evil on the other, Pokorsky notes, adding that "Biden's habitual and unapologetic sinful acts are on full display."

Emoting and Oprahfying, Jill Biden leaves out a few details about her divorce.  [Scroll down]  She's a cold, calculating political creature posing as the queen of compassion.  She's targeting the pop press to better reach the low-information voters.  Now she's putting out a phony story, for her and her husband's own benefit.  Apparently, she does this sort of political work a lot.  When a key was made for one of Hunter Biden's foundation offices in Washington, the give-to list included a China state-linked business executive pal and... Jill Biden.  She knows what she is doing.  Anyone ask her about the teachers' unions keeping schools closed?  She's made much hay billing herself as a teacher.  Meanwhile, the ex-husband says he's writing a book about this so-called "devout Catholic" who eventually became his ex.  If he does, the sleazy history of the Bidens will once again come to the fore.

Obviously it will never happen.
36 days and counting:  When will Biden hold first solo press conference?  It was 27 days for President Donald Trump and only 20 for his predecessor, President Barack Obama.  But 36 days after he was inaugurated, President Biden has yet to appear before journalists for a solo press conference.  The delay has irritated members of the White House press corps, from CNN to Fox News, and raised questions about Biden's campaign promise to restore respect for the press after four years of Trump's "fake news" attacks.

No State of the Union Address, No President?  If Joe Biden gives a State of the Union address sometime this March, it will be late, based on precedence, but still in accordance with an 87-year tradition.  All of which brings up the question: if Joe Biden does not deliver or cannot deliver a State of the Union address, is he truly the president?  In 38 days, he has not held a full press conference.  Each of us who frequent Townhall.com and read the articles has known for quite a while that poor old Joe lacks the cognitive capability to handle the job.  He is a mere puppet to a cabal of Leftists who want to irrevocably reshape America, and not in a good way.  So, the question arises, if Joe Biden does not deliver a State of the Union address this March, or, let's say, even in February 2022, given that he lasts long enough, does anyone seriously believe he is the functioning president of the United States?

The Editor says...
If Biden make a State of the Union Address, I predict it will be pre-recorded, heavily edited, and then held up as proof that Biden's still mentally healthy, which he is not.

Biden Lied And 105,334 People Died.  uring one of his presidential debates last year when about 220,000 people had died from COVID-19, Joe Biden said that "anyone who's responsible for that many deaths should not remain as president of the United States of America."  So should Joe be looking for another job, now that more than 100,000 have died in just the two months that he's been president?  Biden said, after all, that he had a plan on "day one" as president to tackle the disease.  He was going to move "heaven and earth" to save lives, etc., etc.  But since Jan. 20, there have been 105,334 deaths attributed to the coronavirus as of Saturday, according to the COVID Tracking Project.  That means that one-fifth of all the COVID-19 deaths have occurred just since Biden took office.  Now Biden is busy casting blame for why the disease continues to claim lives, while repeatedly lying about what he inherited from President Donald Trump in order to make his own efforts seem more heroic.

Joe Biden Speaks in Houston, What Follows Should Make You Question Everything.  Earlier today, I wrote on Joe and Jill Biden doing yet another joint interview in which the latter basically asserted herself as the president's puppet master.  Yet, that's far from the only disturbing episode that Joe Biden has had lately.  After waiting nearly two weeks to respond, he finally left the bunker and headed down to Texas to do a photo-op in the wake of a massive winter storm.  A normal president would have been there meeting with FEMA officials and surveying damage a week prior, but we obviously don't have a normal president.  Therefore, instead of getting a public address when it mattered, we get this far too late performance that should leave you questioning everything.  [Video clip]

Someone From the Biden Administration Bombed Syria — White House Silent.  As of approximately 8 hours after the bombing of Syria, there is no statement from the White House on their official website or from the JoeBama spokespeople.  The cognitively disconnected pretend president is being cited for authorizing the bombing.  However, there's just as much reason to believe he thought he was ordering more jello pudding before nap-time.  The preferred narrative term "Iran-backed" is also so disengenous it is quite silly.

Progressives are Having a Meltdown Because Joe Biden Bombed Syria.  Well, it looks like we're going back to war again.  Joe Biden decided to bomb Syria last night.  I mean, the minimum wage cannot be included in the $1.9 trillion stimulus bill, the $2,000 relief check promise has been walked back, his OMB nominee, Neera Tanden, is about to go down in flames, and COVID deaths surpassed 500,000.  I guess it was time to bomb something, right?  Nothing gets America more riled up and united than when we bomb something, but after a decade of war, thousands of lives lost, and trillions spent on these nation-building projects in the Middle East that have only caused more instability, we're done.  Oh, and it's also allowed Iran to increase its regional clout and they're about to inch closer to acquiring nuclear weapons so — America is back, huh.

Ignored by Fake News Media:  Joe Biden Is Completely Lost in Texas Even with His Handler in Tow.  Joe Biden had another disastrous day Friday in Texas.  Of course, the liberal media once again hid this from their audience.  Biden traveled to Houston, Texas with his handler, Dr. Jill, but she couldn't save Joe from his mid-stage dementia.  Joe was confused and lost and even admitted it during his brief speech.  [Video clip]

President Biden Had Another 'Senior Moment'.  The mainstream media may be ignoring the president's cognitive decline, but it's still there.  On Saturday [2/27/2021], President Biden attempted to speak extemporaneously, butchering a long list of names in the process before expressing shock and bewilderment at his own forgetfulness.  "... and Representatives Shir-Shirley Jackson Lee, Al Greene, Sylvia Garcia, Lizzie Penelley, ugh, uh, excuse me, Pannill, and, ugh, what am I doing here?" Biden wondered aloud.  (It's Sheila Jackson Lee).  The president had to stop and look at his notes.  "I'm gonna lose track here," Biden said, after already losing track.  "Mayor Turner, Judge Hidalgo.  Thank you all for welcoming us," Biden added.

Jill and Joe Biden Do Yet Another Joint Interview, and It's Really Awkward.  [Scroll down]  Yet, more and more, it looks like Harris is being pushed into the background while Jill Biden is really pulling the strings.  Not only does she routinely act as the President's crutch during interviews, she's now interrupting him to articulate policy in language that makes it seem a lot like she's in charge.  This is some awkward, awkward stuff.  [Video clip]  There's being a supportive First Lady, and then there's the assertiveness with which Jill Biden shuts her husband down in order to explain what "we" are doing as an administration on immigration policy.  Further, why is she even there?  Have you ever seen a president do so many joint interviews?  Barack Obama certainly didn't drag Michelle to almost every media interview he did.  That would leave anyone with the ability to think critically asking what exactly is going on here.  Jill Biden sure appears to be operating as her husband's caregiver at this point.  Why is he unable to explain the immigration policies that are ostensibly his creation?  I can speculate with a reasonable expectation of accuracy that Joe Biden is simply incapable of explaining his policies on any given day.

As Biden Governs by Executive Fiat, States and Courts Begin Resisting.  The newly installed Biden administration made it clear during its first month in power that it doesn't expect to get much of its progressive agenda passed legislatively through the U.S. Congress.  Instead of working with lawmakers in the House and Senate to introduce new bills to enact his agenda, President Joe Biden unleashed a tidal wave of executive actions and orders, setting a historical precedent by signing 25 orders in just nine days, from Jan. 20 to Jan. 28.  He also signed eight executive memorandums in that period, which are official directions made to the federal government.  Continuing into the month of February, Biden has gone on to sign another five executive orders, bringing his total since taking the oath of office to 30.  That's an astonishing and unprecedented exercise of executive power.  The previous six presidents had signed a combined total of 22 executive orders in their first months in office.

Embarrassing excuse offered for Biden's vanishing State of the Union Address.  All of a sudden, here it is the end of February and there is no State of the Union (SOTU) address scheduled for President Biden. [...] Jimmy Carter, a failed one-term president, actually skipped his in the year of his inauguration, missing an opportunity to lay out his plan for the presidency and the nation, with blanket television coverage, plus plenty of pomp and circumstance.  And look what happened to him. [...] The lickspittle media are rushing in with "fact checks" to assure the nation that there is no requirement or deadline for a SOTU speech.  But is awkward, especially considering the rising doubts about Biden's mental and physical state. [...] Democrats know Biden is not all there.  That's why a bunch of them want to take away the power for him to launch a nuclear strike.

The Shame of Joe Biden.  Politicians are not, in general, renowned for honesty.  Spin is universal and exaggeration goes with the territory.  But actual lying — [...] about an important public issue — is relatively uncommon.  Unless we are talking about Joe Biden.  During the campaign, Biden absurdly alleged that President Trump had mishandled the COVID epidemic, and therefore had murdered the several hundred thousand Americans who allegedly died from that disease.  The theory was that if Trump had done something differently [...] the U.S. would have been the only country on Earth with zero Wuhan deaths.  Reporters went along with Biden's fantasy.  Since his inauguration, Biden has continued his assault on his predecessor by claiming, repeatedly, that little was going on with regard to vaccinations until he took office, and that the Trump administration "had no plan" to effectuate vaccinations.  This, too, is a [...] lie.  Biden repeated it today [2/25/2021].

If nobody's home, who called out the Syria airstrike?  Seven weeks into his presidency, senile Joe Biden surprised many by calling in a Syria airstrike.  Which was puzzling, given that there seemed to be no immediate threat.  And that's just for starters.  It was billed as a strike on pro-Iran militants stationed in the region, and in retaliation for an earlier strike of theirs against a U.S. installation.  Which seems a little eyebrow-raising, given Biden's eagerness to make nice with the mullahs.  Even that explanation has skeptics who call the whole thing laughable.  There are also those who think Biden is finishing up what President Obama started.  You know, for the legacy thing.  Favor to a pal.

Sen. Lindsey Graham to Newsmax TV: 'I Don't Think Biden's in Charge'.  President Joe Biden was a moderate senator, but the administration implementing all these progressive policies in his first weeks in office shows it just is not him in charge, according to Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., on Newsmax TV.  "I like Joe Biden, but the agenda is AOC [Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y.], [House Speaker Nancy] Pelosi, [Senate Majority Leader Chuck] Schumer, Sen. Bernie Sanders," Graham told "Greg Kelly Reports" of his former fellow senator Biden.  "So, no, I don't think Joe Biden's in charge."  Graham told host Greg Kelly, progressive policies on immigration, unwinding former President Donald Trump's Remain in Mexico policy for those seeking asylum, ceasing the border wall and the Keystone XL Pipeline, and a $1.9 trillion "liberal wish list" that has "nothing to do with COVID" are not something a moderate Biden would have supported as a senator.

Can You Translate What Biden Is Trying to Say Here?  Earlier this week, Joe Biden appeared to have another one of his signature verbal nonsense moments while attempting to memorialize those who succumbed to COVID-19. [...] It's not as bad as when, back in October, mere days away from the election, Biden said, "I'll lead an effective strategy to mobilize trunalimunumaprzure," but it's still pretty bad.

Biden Randomly Stops Talking Mid Sentence And Gives Camera Blank Stare.  On Monday [2/22/2021] during a speech at the White House, President Joe Biden suffered from another brain freeze when he completely jumbled his speech.  The comments were made at a ceremony for the 500,000 Americans who have died from Coronavirus, 100,000 of which have happened in the very little time Biden has been in office.  Biden couldn't even read what he was supposed to say from the teleprompter:  "The only way to spare more pain and more loss, the only way — these millstones no longer mark our national mourning — these milestones, I should say, no longer, no longer moke — mark our national mourning."  [Video clip]

House Democrats Want Biden To Relinquish Sole Authority To Launch Nuclear Weapons.  Dozens of House Democrats are calling on President Biden to relinquish sole control over the country's nuclear arsenal and the ability to launch a strike using those weapons.  Politico reports that the Democrats, led by Rep. Jimmy Panetta (CA) and Rep. Ted Lieu (CA), wrote a letter warning that "vesting one person" with the authority to initiate a nuclear war "entails real risks."  "While any president would presumably consult with advisors before ordering a nuclear attack, there is no requirement to do so," the letter explains.  "The military is obligated to carry out the order if they assess it is legal under the laws of war," they add.  "Under the current posture of U.S. nuclear forces, that attack would happen in minutes."

The Editor says...
This is a trap for the next Republican president, who will find it very difficult to regain the sole responsibility for the use of atomic weapons, after the Democrats gave it away in 2021.  If it is not a trap, and the Democrats only want to take away the keys because Biden is undeniably senile, then why did they nominate the man last year?

Biden's "Teleprompter" Fails Again, Prompting Series of Verbal Gaffes, No MSM Coverage.  Joe Biden is not well.  That marks one of several dozen times I've opened an article in that fashion or similar, yet those words have become no less relevant with time.  The former VP is only getting worse and that was on full display again yesterday [2/23/2021].  Biden made an embarrassing blunder during his first foreign meeting with Canada's Justin Trudeau. [...] Of course not one of the mainstream media reported about this.  The "leader of the free world" can't go through one video appearance without making false or misspelled statements.

House Dems urge Biden to give up sole control of nuclear codes as mental status concerns brew.  Dozens of House Democrats have sent a letter to President Joe Biden urging him to relinquish sole control over the country's nuclear weapons codes, citing "real risks" that could lead to an accidental or rogue launch.  "...Vesting one person with this authority entails real risks," said the letter, which was led by California Rep. Jimmy Panetta.  "Past presidents have threatened to attack other countries with nuclear weapons or exhibited behavior that caused other officials to express concern about the president's judgment."  "While any president would presumably consult with advisors before ordering a nuclear attack, there is no requirement to do so," the letter further states.  "The military is obligated to carry out the order if they assess it is legal under the laws of war.  Under the current posture of U.S. nuclear forces, that attack would happen in minutes."

Biden revokes Trump order to cut funding from New York City, Portland and Seattle 'anarchist' havens after BLM protests.  President Joe Biden on Wednesday [2/124/2021] formally revoked a series of presidential orders and memorandum signed by Donald Trump, including one that sought to cut funding from several cities he deemed 'anarchist' havens and another mandating that federal buildings should be designed in a classical aesthetic.  Since taking office last month, Biden has revoked dozens of Trump orders and issued dozens more of his own as he's sought to target foundational aspects of Trump's legacy and promote aspect of his own agenda without going through Congress.  The latest slate of revocations targeted a grab-bag of issues, including a few that Trump signed in his last months in office.

'Joe Biden Can Barely Form a Sentence in Between Naps,' Situation 'Getting Scary'.  Sean Hannity called-out the mainstream media mob and the Democratic Party Tuesday night for their "protection program" surrounding Joe Biden; saying the President can "barely form a sentence in between naps."  "We turn to some disturbing news surrounding Joe Biden.  Joe's now struggling to even form sentences and speak in a coherent way.  Earlier he tried to use a 'cheat sheet' for some remarks...  What's on the note card Joe?  Your name?  Address?  Contact information?" asked Hannity.  "This is now getting scary.  He's supposed to be our Commander-in-Chief.  This is the toughest job in the world.  Joe seemingly can barely form a sentence in between naps," he added.  [Video clip]

Apparently, Hunter Biden's life was even more sordid than we knew.  I'm sure that there are some Americans, somewhere, who voted for Joe Biden because the media assured them that Joe is an honest, decent family man — all of which is patently untrue.  Because they were unaware that the only thing "abnormal" about the Trump administration was the relentless attacks from the Democrat party and the media (but I repeat myself), they thought Biden would bring an era of peace and even honor.  No wonder, then, that the media and the tech tyrants corrupted the election by quashing any reports about Biden's sleazy son Hunter.  And now, it turns out that Hunter was even worse than we realized.  Those people who paid attention to conservative media outlets and learned of Hunter Biden's laptop, knew that Hunter Biden functioned as a conduit by which foreign governments, most notably Ukraine and China, funneled millions of dollars to the "Big Guy," aka then-Vice President Joe Biden.  They also knew that Hunter Biden is one of the sleaziest men in America.

Hunter Biden was living with his brother Beau's widow Hallie while sending raunchy texts and FaceTiming in the shower with her married sister.  Hunter Biden had a controversial affair with his brother Beau's grieving widow Hallie, while exchanging raunchy texts, 'partying', and even renting a house with her sister, DailyMail.com can exclusively reveal.  Hallie Biden's older sister, Elizabeth Secundy, who was recently separated from her husband of 15 years, referred to Hunter as her 'prince' and told him she loved him, in a series of text messages dating back to 2016.  The pair's relationship was revealed in files and emails recovered from Hunter's laptop, the contents of which became public last year after it was abandoned at a Delaware computer shop.  While Hunter has promised to reveal details of his personal life and struggles with alcohol and drugs in his upcoming memoir, Beautiful Things, it is unclear whether Hunter has included details of his relationship with Secundy.

Biden Kicks Texas To The Curb — Denies Statewide Major Disaster Declaration Request.  Governor Greg Abbott requested statewide designation for major disaster relief from President Biden.  Biden denied the statewide designation and only approved some counties in Texas, not all of them.  Abbott asked for a declaration that covered the entire state because the winter storm knocked out power and heat throughout the state, as well as leaving millions of Texans without water.  Texas has 254 counties.  Biden approved only 77 counties for disaster relief.  The governor calls it an important first step but it falls far short of what Texas officials requested.  Biden signed the declaration late Friday.  It covers much of the Texas population.  The counties covered include the cities of Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, and Austin.  The assistance can include grants for temporary housing, home repairs, and low-cost loans.

The Editor says...
Texas is a deep-red state, except for Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, El Paso, and Austin.  By sheer coincidence, these are the only cities Joe Biden is inclined to help.

Joe Biden Held Hostage — Day 34.  While we expected that a Biden presidency would have nothing to do with Joe Biden, I certainly didn't expect it to look like this.  Is it just me, or do his executive order signing ceremonies look like creepy hostage situation videos?
  •   Prisoner sitting at a desk — check
  •   Prisoner appears disoriented and confused — check
  •   Prisoner reading a statement clearly written by someone else — check
  •   Masked captors flanking the prisoner to keep him on script — check
It's important to note that in these situations the power doesn't reside in the guy seated behind the desk — regardless of his title or any trappings of importance.  The power is held by the masked captors lurking the background.  The power brokers in the Harris/Biden administration are San Fran Nan and Not-Mrs. Brown Harris.  The most liberal former senator, and the most unhinged current congresswoman are the real shot callers in the executive branch now.  This raises another question, why would two people from the legislative branch be so anxious to circumvent the legislature?  Joe has signed something like 50 executive orders in his first month in office.  This puts him on pace for the most executive orders of any president in history.  This is an affront to representative governance.

Why media coverage of Biden is nothing like Trump's... nor Obama's.  [Scroll down]  No, the real reason is much more troubling.  They aren't covering Biden or his policies because they're being instructed to keep it all off the public's radar by their handlers.  Go ahead and put on your tinfoil hats if you'd like to at this point, but it's as crystal clear to me now as anything I've written about in weeks.  Whoever is pulling the various strings of their mainstream media puppets, they do not want the public to know the direction the Biden administration is taking the nation.  Joe Biden is not a leader.  He's a tool for the powers and principalities to quietly usher in their nefarious plans.  Whether it's the Chinese Communist Party, the United Nations, George Soros, Bill Gates, the New World Order, the Deep State, or a combination of all-of-the-above, they groomed Biden's entire candidacy and force-fed him to the American people through the most massive voter fraud the nation, and possibly the world, has ever seen. [...] Sleepy Joe Biden is the perfect vessel through which The Great Reset and the other plans of the globalist elites can be brought to America unnoticed.  His plan to "build back better" is not and never has been his plan at all.  He's a pawn, and that should terrify us all.

Start the Impeachment!  Joe Biden Admits Storming the Senate Chamber at Age 21 and Being Arrested.  In 2007 Joe Biden told David Letterman that he was arrested for trespassing in the US Capitol and taking a seat inside the Senate Chamber at age 21.  Joe Biden bragged about the alleged event on Letterman. [...] Today the US government including the DOJ and FBI are ruining people's lives for walking through the US Capitol on January 6th.  The FBI has arrested over 250 people so far in connection with the Capitol raid on January 6th.  A vast majority committed no violence and were just walking around inside the US Capitol building.

Biden Falsely Labels Police, Military Veterans As 'White Supremacists'.  Joe Biden has accused military veterans and retired police officers of so-called "white supremacy" in a grievous insult to servicemen and women.  "The impact of former military, former police officers, on the growth of white supremacy in some of these groups... it is a bane on our existence... these guys and woman are, in fact, demented," he stated during a CNN Town Hall.  Biden's remarks sparked fury among veteran and police groups who said they didn't serve and protect this country to become subject to a political smear campaign.  In that same interview, Biden falsely labeled patriotic groups as "domestic terrorists" while ignoring the threats posed by groups like Antifa and Black Lives Matter.

Biden Using Christian Religion as 'Cover for Extreme Policies': Pro-Life Activist Rose.  Lila Rose, founder and president of the pro-life organization Live Action, says Americans need to be aware of the serious deception by the Biden administration regarding abortion.  "Most Americans are not aware of the pro-abortion extremism of the administration," Rose said in an interview with NTD News on Feb. 17.  "And when they do become aware, they're deeply concerned."  Rose said that she and her organization are immensely concerned about the agenda of the Biden administration, which is "even more pro-abortion than when he served as vice president under President Barack Obama." [...] While Biden professes to be a "devout Catholic," a religion that carries clear and repeated messages that protect the sanctity of life, Rose says she thinks he's using the religion as a cover for his radical abortion agenda.  "The president is using the Christian religion as a cover for his extreme policies and his promotion of abortion.  And that is simply the worst kind of lie.  It's the worst kind of violence, it's what needs to be exposed."

The GOP's 2024 Race Will Be Brutal And It's a Fight We Need to Have.  President * has stumbled out of the gate with zero wins in his first month.  He signed a bunch of executive orders, all of which the next GOP president should undo on Day One.  His $2,000 promise has already been broken.  He is botching COVID, and parents are getting sick of indolent public school teachers demanding to be paid for not doing their jobs, instead of their usual demand to be paid for not doing their jobs well.  His global warming agenda has been frozen by the Texas arctic nightmare.  And also, people are noticing that he's a creepy weirdo.  He's literally done nothing but fail, and this despite the licensed, professional journalists of journalism explaining away his stumbles [...]

Joe Biden Met With The Chairman Of The Chinese Propaganda Unit Seeking To 'Influence Foreign Governments To Adopt Beijing's Preferred Polices.  On a 2013 visit to China, President Biden met with the chairman of the Chinese Communist Party's top propaganda effort that seeks to "influence foreign governments and other actors to take actions or adopt positions supportive of Beijing's preferred policies," The National Pulse can reveal.  A previously unreported-on press release from a U.S.-based Chinese Communist Party Consulate reveals that then-Vice President Biden participated in a welcome reception with Chinese Communist Party Vice President Li Yuanchao featuring Tung Chee-hwa.

Biden Fires Chicago U.S. Attorney Hot on the Trail of Democratic Corruption.  You've probably never heard of Chicago's U.S. attorney John Lausch.  For the last two years, he has been going after some of the biggest, most powerful Democrats in the state of Illinois. [...] In fact, it's believed Lausch has targeted some other high-profile Democratic politicians in other investigations.  It's a target-rich environment and Democrats in Illinois have gotten extremely nervous about who Lausch will go after next.  Now it appears, that bringing down corrupt Democratic politicians will be the job of the next U.S. attorney.  Along with 56 other U.S. attorneys named by former president Trump, Lausch will lose his job — fired by Joe Biden.  "It's tradition," said Biden supporters.  This is true.  But it's also "tradition" to keep prosecutors in place who were pursuing high-profile cases.  Lausch certainly qualified under that criteria.  Biden's firing hasn't gone down well in Illinois.

Mario Kart Playing President Has Been MIA on Winter Superstorm, and the Latest News Makes It Even Worse.  With Texas and the South being slammed by a once in a generation winter storm, you'd expect the President of the United States to be intimately involved in the response, and I don't mean just signing an emergency order.  After Hurricane Harvey, Donald Trump flew straight to Texas to meet with FEMA and show leadership over the situation.  Even Barack Obama did the same following Hurricane Sandy and other natural disasters that happened during his two terms.  Yet, not only has Joe Biden not made any attempt to go to Texas (or anywhere in the South that was hit hard), he hasn't even given a public address on the situation, nor has he done a public appearance with FEMA officials back in Washington.  In fact, he spent the first part of last week, while the storm was hammering away, playing Mario Kart at Camp David.

Meet the New President of the United States ... Barack Obama.  Republicans, conservatives and capitalists are sick right about now.  We're in shock.  We can't believe Donald Trump is no longer president.  We can't believe Americans voted against the greatest economy — perhaps in history — the greatest jobs picture ever, the greatest improvement in middle-class incomes ever and the greatest economic comeback ever, which Trump produced after the COVID-19 lockdown and economic collapse.  Remember 33% gross domestic product in Q3 2020?  That was the biggest number in history.  Who would vote against all that?  You'd have to be self-hating and suicidal.  We also can't believe America voted for a feeble old man with dementia who mumbles, who clearly signs executive orders without knowing what he's signing and who says "we didn't have" a vaccine before he became president, even though he got his two vaccine shots before he became president.  We all believe the election was rigged and stolen.  We all know the feeble old man now called "president" would be more at home in an assisted living home than the White House.  That man can't be our new president.  I have news for my fellow conservatives, Republicans, capitalists and patriots:  Joe Biden is not president.  He's a puppet.  Yes, we have a new president.  His name is ... Barack Obama.

The Editor says...
Maybe so, but even during Obama's first two terms, he only did what he was told by Valerie Jarrett.

Censored Hunter Biden Laptop Story Comes Back Around to Bite Twitter.  The former Delaware computer repair shop owner who gave Rudi Giuliani and the FBI emails alleged to be from Hunter Biden's laptop has again sued Twitter for defamation.  John Paul Mac Isaac claimed that Twitter defamed him by censoring a New York Post story over its alleged use of "hacked materials."  Due to Twitter's suppression of the story, Americans branded Mac Isaac a hacker, costing him business opportunities and ultimately leading him to shut down his business, the lawsuit claims.  "Plaintiff is not a hacker and the information obtained from the computer does not constitute hacked materials because Plaintiff lawfully gained access to the computer, first with the permission of its owner, Biden, and then, after Biden failed to retrieve the recovered data despite Plaintiff's reuses, in accordance with the Mac Shop's abandoned property police," the lawsuit claims.  "Plaintiff, as a direct result of Defendant Twitter's actions and statements, is now widely considered a hacker."

Hunter Biden Laptop Finder is Now Suing Twitter for Defamation.  John Paul Mac Isaac, whose discovery of a laptop that by virtually all accounts belongs to Hunter Biden, the son of current president Joe Biden, is suing Twitter for defamation.  "John Paul Mac Isaac has sued Twitter for defamation in connection with the social media giant's censorship last year of materials gleaned from a laptop that President Joe Biden's son, Hunter, left at a computer repair shop," Just the News reported.  "Isaac owned the computer repair shop in Delaware called The Mac Shop, and on April 12, 2019 was asked to 'recover information from damaged Mac computers allegedly owned by Hunter Biden," the lawsuit said, as pointed out by Just the News.

Bishops Whack Biden Over 'Equality Act': Goes Against 'Best Medical Advice' and 'Deeply-Held Moral, Religious Convictions'.  Of all the things Joe Biden congratulates himself about, his support for women's rights, and his Catholic faith are at least in the top five if not the top two spots.  He fancies himself a "devout Catholic," and like all good Democrats, he has railed against the Republican "war on women" for decades.  In both cases, Biden's actions consistently belie his words. [...] It takes neither a staunch conservative nor a proverbial rocket scientist to see that the Equality Act is anything but equal in respect to women and the unborn.  On the contrary, it is perfectly clear that the legislation is specifically, if not solely designed to cater to the LGBTQ community — at the expense of women and unborn children.

Voters agree with Don Jr.: Biden is a 'puppet of the radical left'.  The media portrayed President Biden as a centrist unifier during the campaign, a regular "Amtrak Joe" who took the train to work.  But after he has unleashed liberal policies and executive orders pushing agendas favored by unions, environmentalists, abortion advocates, and anti-gun groups, a majority of voters now agree that he is a "puppet of the left."  In the latest Rasmussen Reports survey, 54% agreed with the phrase used by Donald Trump Jr. in a recent [Washington Examiner] interview.  Some 40% disagreed.  Trump, whose book Liberal Privilege:  Joe Biden And The Democrats' Defense Of The Indefensible is one of the only ones critical of Biden, said the president is now shocking people by showing his true liberal colors.  "We're more popular with the base now than we were on Election Day, I think because they realize how bad it is.  They realize the tech censorship, which we talked about extensively.  They realize that the lies that the media sold them ... they realize that they have been played.  They realize that they've been sold in a bill of goods that was nonsense.  Joe Biden's not the moderate nice guy that they made him out to be.  He's a puppet of the radical Left, and he's their dream guy because they'll sign whatever they put in front of them, and he doesn't know the difference," Trump told us.

Europe Applauds Biden's Surrender of America First Policies in G7 Speech.  President Joe Biden on Friday [2/19/2021] rejected the "America First" policies that started no wars and brought about Middle East peace agreements, objectives that had not been achieved for decades under either political party.  Biden's G7 speech drew praise from foreign nations.  "Biden gave exactly the speech that many Europeans wanted to hear — an America that pats you on the shoulders, that doesn't criticize or demand," Germany's influential Der Spiegel magazine wrote.

Joe Biden brings America back to bad Obama days.  As winners never fail to remind losers, elections have consequences.  But rarely is there a single day where consequences pack as much wallop as Friday, where the irrationality of Joe Biden's policies came into full view.  From the border with Mexico, where the new administration started opening the doors to at least 25,000 migrants seeking asylum, to the Mideast tinderbox, where it moved to rejoin the misbegotten Iran nuke deal, the new president appears fixated by the desire to turn back the clock to 2016.  It's as if Biden has been seized by a sentimental longing to try to make the world like it was when the Obama-Biden administration left office.  Unfortunately, "The Way We Were" is a nice song but not much of a guide to the future.

Forget it, Joe.  During the CNN town hall in Milwaukee earlier this week, the gentleman from Madame Tussauds gave a short discourse on China and human rights. [...] I would only point out the cultural relativism that lies at the core of Democratic orthodoxy.  China has their thing and we have ours.  Their thing involves tyranny and abuse of human rights.  Our thing involves the condemnation of same.  When Biden says Xi "gets it," we see the tribute that idiocy pays to duplicity.  Xi "gets" Biden, all right.  Xi has Biden sized up as a complete and utter fool telling him that he has to say certain things, but don't worry.  They are obligatory and formulaic.  By the same token, Biden "gets" Xi.  He understands that, in light of Chinese history according to Joe, Xi's gotta do what Xi's gotta do.

Is the Biden honeymoon already over?  [Scroll down]  Given their predilection for wiping away more than $1.5 trillion in outstanding student loan debt, one would assume these Democrats were absolutely giddy when Joe Biden entered the Oval Office on January 20.  However, in a plot twist of epic proportions, President Biden has pivoted from his original position of somewhat supporting their dreams of canceling student loan debt to pouring a bucket of cold water all over it.  Biden recently held his first townhall event since becoming president, and he addressed the $1.5 trillion question with an answer that certainly didn't sit well with his fellow Democrats.  When asked if he would support the plan to cancel $50,000 per borrower in student loan debt, Biden responded, "I will not make that happen."  Unsurprisingly, Biden's answer was met with a mighty backlash by many in his own party.

Australian Media Runs Segment on Joe Biden's Dementia! — Something the Poisonous US Media Still Lies About.  Australian reporter Cory Bernardi is the first mainstream host to report on Joe Biden's obvious dementia that is apparent to anyone paying attention.  No one in the US liberal media is strong enough to point this out — President Biden is out to lunch.  He is in an escalating stage of cognitive decline.  Bernardi shared this on Friday [2/19/2021], "Such was the hatred of Donald Trump by the partisan and poisonous mainstream media that they chose not to highlight anything that may have derailed a Biden victory.  Even now after he's been sworn in many are still refusing to speak the truth."

Biden Grovels to Iran's Terrorists.  Just days after Iranian-backed terrorists launched an attack on Americans in Northern Iraq, killing a civilian contractor and wounding a U.S. soldier, the Biden administration has issued no punishment.  In fact, President Biden is rewarding the behavior by initiating talks with the regime, pulling off sanctions and green lighting new cash flows bound to fuel terrorism.  "The Biden administration said Thursday evening that it is ready to begin conducting diplomacy with Iran, an announcement that has rankled Iran hawks in and out of Congress who see the new White House as rushing into talks with a regime that continues to sponsor terror attacks against U.S. forces and build its nuclear weapons program," the Washington Free Beacon reports.  For the past four years, Iran has been isolated thanks to the Trump administration's maximum pressure campaign.

Biden says he was 'professor' — touting $1 million gig with few visits.  President Biden on Friday [2/19/2021] told a virtual summit of world leaders that he was a "professor" as of two years ago — touting a role that previously drew controversy because he was paid handsomely for nine reported visits to campus.  Biden earned nearly $1 million from the University of Pennsylvania from 2017 to 2019, despite appearing rarely at the Ivy League school.  Biden said in a livestreamed address to the Munich Security Conference, "Two year ago, as you pointed out, when I last spoke in Munich, I was a private citizen.  I was a professor, not an elected official."

Biden Administration Moves Goalposts Again, Now Says Schools Need Better Ventilation To Combat Asthma, Mold Before Reopening.  The Biden administration continues to provide numerous shifting answers on whether schools should reopen and how soon.  Now the administration wants ventilation systems in schools not just to combat COVID-19, but also asthma and mold.  Much of the confusion surrounding Biden's education plan comes from the administration's conflicting definition of what reopening schools would even look like.  Back in December, Biden pledged "to bring the coronavirus pandemic under enough control to open most of the nation's schools during his first 100 days as president."  "It should be a national priority to get our kids back into school and keep them in school," Biden said at the time.  "If Congress provides the funding, we need to protect students, educators and staff.  If states and cities put strong public health measures in place that we all follow, then my team will work to see that the majority of our schools can be open by the end of my first 100 days."

President Biden takes another snow day — get your milk cartons ready.  On the campaign trail, Joe Biden repeatedly called for so many early a.m. "lids" that The [New York] Post ran a "Where's Joe" front page, wondering when the "hidin'" Biden would come out.  We may need to run it again, because President Biden is still calling them:  On Thursday [2/18/2021], he postponed a trip to Michigan, where he was to tour a Pfizer vaccine-making plant, then called an 8 a.m. lid — notifying the press that he won't be seen in public for the rest of the day.  Why?  Because DC is getting snow.  Seriously.  Notably, Vice President Kamala Harris still went ahead with her schedule.

The Puppet Speaks — Biden Refers To China's Genocide As A "Norm".  There is a reason his handlers try to keep Joe Biden away from the cameras.  When he speaks, he has an alarming tendency to say exactly what he thinks.  That was on full display during a recent CNN town hall event at which Joe appeared.  Discussing China and its policies toward its citizens, Joe explained that he understands that it is a priority of Xi Jinping, China's brutal strongman dictator, to maintain a "united tightly controlled China."  This was, according to Biden, a consequence of abuse the Chinese suffered in the past when "they were victimized by the outer world."  Joe also suggested that Xi's methods of ensuring this cohesion were simply a matter of China having different social "norms."

All of President Biden's key executive orders — in one chart.  President Joe Biden has made aggressive use of executive orders since being sworn in on Jan. 20, acting without Congress on issues across the spectrum even as he calls on lawmakers to work with him on giving more aid to Americans hurt by the coronavirus pandemic.  Biden's orders to date affect health care the energy sector, prison stocks and other areas.  Below is a table showing orders that he signed on his first day in office, as well as other executive actions that have followed or are expected.  [Chart]

Xi stoops to conquer Biden.  Addressing a CNN town hall event on Tuesday, President Biden said he would stand up for human rights in China.  But, he immediately added, Americans should recognize that "culturally, there are different norms that each country, and their leaders, are expected to follow."  These were ill-chosen words.  Especially since Biden had just identified the top three human rights abuses that define Communist China as its repression of Hong Kong, its threat to use force to subjugate Taiwan, and its genocidal campaign against the Uighur people.  There is no cultural norm that can excuse or justify these grotesque abuses.  By suggesting otherwise, Biden is sacrificing America's moral leadership at the altar of Chinese Communist Party arrogance.

How gone is he?  President Biden claimed during his CNN town hall in Wisconsin on Tuesday that his administration came into office with no coronavirus vaccines available. [...] Biden's remarks are confused, confusing, and absurdly erroneous.  How gone is he?  Or aren't we supposed to ask?

Does Joe Biden Believe All Gun Owners Are Hunters?  A common refrain from Joe Biden over the past decade has been his commitment to hunters and other sportsmen.  In a 2013 Facebook town hall event with Parents magazine, then Vice President Biden proudly stated, "no one's taking my shotguns" when the issue of the Second Amendment was addressed.  Biden has stuck to his guns — or more accurately his shotguns — many times when the issue of gun control has been brought up.  The same year as the town hall, Biden offered advice for self-defense — buy a shotgun, not an assault rifle.  "You don't need an AR-15," Biden said as reported by the Reuters News Agency at the time.  "It's harder to aim.  It's harder to use and in fact, you don't need 30 rounds to protect yourself.  Buy a shotgun."

Joe Biden sure is reluctant to criticize China.  I wonder why.
Biden dismisses Uighur genocide as part of China's 'different norms'.  President Biden is dismissing the genocide against the Uighur population in China, dubbing the mass internment a "different norm" — despite the State Department this month responding to "atrocities" in the camps, following reports of systemic rape and torture.  The commander-in-chief made the remarks after being asked during his CNN town hall Tuesday evening [2/16/2021] about his recent conversation with his Chinese counterpart, starting his response by relaying Xi's justification for the abuses.  "If you know anything about Chinese history, it has always been, the time when China has been victimized by the outer world is when they haven't been unified at home," Biden began.  "So the central — well, vastly overstated — the central principle of Xi Jinping is that there must be a united, tightly controlled China.  And he uses his rationale for the things he does based on that."

Trump says Biden is either 'lying or he's mentally gone' after claiming there was no Covid vaccine when he took office.  Donald Trump has speculated that Joe Biden is either lying or 'mentally gone' after the president on Tuesday night [2/16/2021] said his administration arrived to find no COVID-19 vaccines available.  Trump, who on Wednesday broke his silence to give a series of interviews marking the death of Rush Limbaugh, told Newsmax Biden made 'a very dumb statement' about the vaccines.  The former president teased a possible 2024 run, boasting about his 'tremendous support', and said he would not be returning to Twitter — the platform from which he was banned last month.

Vaccines, Schools And Racist Insurance: 'Fact-Checking' Biden's Town Hall Claims.  On Tuesday evening [2/16/2021], President Joe Biden traveled to Milwaukee, Wisconsin to participate in a CNN Presidential Town Hall — his first as President of the United States.  Speaking with CNN anchor Anderson Cooper, Biden fielded questions from audience members, some of whom voted for him and some of whom did not.  In a similar fashion to Biden's television appearances while on the campaign trail, and the first days of his administration, the town hall event was dripping with falsehoods and misleading arguments.

Biden Won't Rule Out Using Executive Orders To Crackdown On Second Amendment Rights:  White House.  President Joe Biden reportedly won't rule out using executive orders to crackdown on Americans' constitutionally protected Second Amendment rights.  The revelation was made during a White House press conference on Tuesday in response to a statement that Biden put out last week calling for banning semi-automatic firearms in addition to other gun control measures.  "What is your timetable for action on what the president calls common sense measures?" a reporter asked Psaki.  "And what's the realistic hope that you have this will pass both houses?"  "Well, we haven't proposed a package at this point," Psaki responded.

Is There a Reason U.S. Media Pushing Weird "Biden Plays Mario Kart" Story?  If you closely follow the way leftists engineer narratives, specifically when they choose to push a particularly innocuous aspect, you can usually spot an ulterior motive.  In this example several media outlets are really pushing a story about Joe Biden playing the Mario Kart video game with his granddaughter. [...] However, if one accepts there's always a reason for this kind of stuff deep in the details, you might wonder if this isn't part of an *anti-dementia* effort of narrative building from the WH press office.  Sound crazy?  Actually there's a reason for that question:  According to scientists the specific Super Mario game could help prevent dementia in patients with symptoms.  Specifically playing Super Mario video games for two months "can improve brain function and help forestall dementia symptoms."

Biden playing video games
VP Kamala Harris Has Allegedly Begun To Take Calls With World Leaders On Behalf Of Biden While The Commander-In-Chief Is Busy Playing Video Games.  During his weekend retreat at Camp David, Biden, and his granddaughter Naomi played the racing video game, and he won.  Naomi shared a video to Instagram that showed Biden competing against her on the Arcade GP DX machines, complete with chairs and steering wheels.  Naomi Biden posted on Snapchat this weekend that she and her grandfather played an arcade-style game round of Mario Kart at Camp David over the weekend — and that he won.  [Tweet]  After playing Mario Kart for three days at Camp David, Joe Biden finally returned to the White House on Monday.  While he spent the weekend playing video games thousands of Americans died of Covid-19.


Who's In Control?  Harris, Not Biden, Calling Foreign Heads of State.  How many heads of state have ventured to the White House to visit with Biden?  Isn't it common for the White House to host a parade of foreign dignitaries in the first weeks?  Hasn't Biden received the COVID vaxx?

Biden Falsely Claims: 'We Didn't Have' A Vaccine 'When We Came Into Office'.  President Joe Biden falsely claimed during a CNN town hall on Tuesday night [2/16/2021] that his administration did not have a vaccine to work with when he came into office, saying, "It's one thing to have the vaccine, which we didn't have when we came into office, but a vaccinator, how do you get the vaccine into someone's arm?"

Joe Biden Aims to Erase Donald Trump's Successes in Combating China.  The Biden administration has already taken steps to undo former President Trump's policies in countering China, a Republican Study Committee report reveals.  Instead of displaying "American leadership through a strategy based on peace through strength, the Biden team so far has exhibited a pattern of weakness, and a return to Obama's failed approach of engaging rather than holding China accountable for it's bad behavior," the report states.

China is Eating Biden's Lunch.  Chinese President Xi Jinping greatly impressed President Joe Biden in their two-hour telephone conversation this week.  That's not entirely a good thing.  Biden, briefing reporters on the Wednesday call, said, "Last night, I was on the phone for two straight hours with Xi Jinping.  They're investing billions of dollars in dealing with a whole range of issues that deal with transportation, the environment, and a whole range of other things.  So, we just have to step up."  He added, "We don't get moving, they're going to eat our lunch."  But for the fact that he's president — given his track record of having been wrong on every defense and foreign policy issue for almost five decades — it would be easy to ignore his assessment of China.  This is a man who said in 2019, "China is going to eat our lunch?  Come on, man."  He added, "I mean, you know, they're not bad folks, folks.  But guess what?  They're not competition for us."  Despite the difficulty of being wrong on both occasions Biden managed it.

Archbishop Of Kansas City:  Joe Biden 'Should Stop Defining Himself As A Devout Catholic'.  President Joe Biden has described himself as a "devout Catholic," a description enthusiastically repeated by his press secretary and the media.  Archbishop Joseph Naumann of Kansas City, who also serves as chairman of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops' (USCCB) Committee on Pro-Life Activities, however, said that the president's open support for legalized abortion should put that label to rest.  Speaking with Catholic World Report, Naumann flatly said that Biden "should stop defining himself as a devout Catholic" while acknowledging that his abortion views stand in direct opposition to the Catholic Church.

Scwheizer: Biden, Harris Families Have 'Cultural History' of 'Cashing in' on Family Name — 'Semblance of Entitlement'.  Monday [2/15/2021] on FNC's "Fox & Friends," Breitbart News senior contributor Peter Schweizer reacted to the report that White House aides are reportedly concerned about Vice President Kamala Harris' niece Meena Harris profiting off of her aunt's name and position because it would violate ethics rules.  Schweizer, who has long detailed President Joe Biden's family's corruption of profiting off of his name, said the Harris family also has a "cultural history" of "cashing in."  He added that if neither Biden nor Harris call off their family members, it "is absolutely going to continue."  "Ultimately, it's the principle — in this case, Vice President Harris or President Biden that have to lay down the law in their family," Schweizer stated.

The Ugly truth about 'Honest Joe'.  Now that the election is over and President Biden is installed in the White House, it's safe for the truth about his character to dribble out.  And what do you know?  Turns out the ethical standards of "Honest Joe" aren't worth a hill of beans.  Starting with the obvious, Hunter Biden is still in business with the Chinese Communist Party.  White House press secretary Jen Psaki admitted a little over a week ago that the president's wayward 51-year-old son still owns 10 percent of Chinese equity firm BHR Partners.  So much for Joe's promise that "no one in my family will ... have any business relationship with anyone that relates to a foreign corporation or a foreign country.  Period.  Period.  End of story."

Biden lies about Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick's death.  Trump was a boaster, a puffer, and an exaggerator, but he was always straight about the essentials.  Biden, on the other hand, is a stone-cold liar.  For years he lied about his first wife's death and, beginning in 2019, he lied consistently about Trump's stance on white supremacists.  Biden has now added a new lie to his rhetoric:  He claims that Trump is responsible for the death of Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick, who died of unknown causes after the events on January 6.

Obviously a lie:
Joe Biden Confronts Trump Acquittal: 'Substance of the Charge Not in Dispute'.  President Joe Biden confronted the acquittal of former President Donald Trump on Saturday [2/13/2021] by declaring that although Republican senators in the main did not vote against Trump, the "substance of the charge" that spawned the impeachment trial to his mind was "not in dispute."  As Breitbart news reported, the Senate failed to clear the 67-vote barrier necessary to convict Trump of the charge he incited an insurrection on January 6, when Congress was certifying the 2020 presidential election.  Seven Senate Republicans voted to convict Trump of inciting an insurrection, including Sens. Bill Cassidy (R-LA), Richard Burr (R-NC), Susan Collins (R-ME), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), Mitt Romney (R-UT), Pat Toomey (R-PA), Ben Sasse (R-NE).

Worshipping At The Altar Of Power.  Despite professing their Catholicism, both Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and President Joe Biden publicly support abortion.  It is no accident that neither Pelosi nor Biden would have the power they now wield if they opposed abortion as their professed faith requires.  But they too have made a choice to kneel at the altar of power.

The Blue-Collar Joe Biden Myth Is A Lie.  One of the great and enduring myths of President Joe Biden is that he grew up a man of the people.  Blue-collar Joe has always been part of his persona — he was the guy from Scranton, Penn. after all.  Throughout his political career, Biden touted his blue collar roots like a badge of honor.  He routinely speaks like the common man having a conversation after a hard day's work on the assembly line, using go-to phrases including, "look, folks." [...] It was the college-educated professionals who helped get Blue Collar Joe to the White House.  Perhaps the average working man and woman saw what we should all see — Blue Collar Joe is an act and a bad one at that.

Joe Biden sure is friendly with China.  I wonder why.
Biden administration expresses 'deep concerns' about WHO's China probe.  The Biden administration on Saturday expressed "deep concerns" about the World Health Organization's (WHO) probe into the Chinese handling of the coronavirus.  "We have deep concerns about the way in which the early findings of the COVID-19 investigation were communicated and questions about the process used to reach them," National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan said in a lengthy statement.  "It is imperative that this report be independent, with expert findings free from intervention or alteration by the Chinese government."  The WHO sent a team to investigate the origins of the virus in Wuhan, and was closely watched for evidence of Chinese stonewalling.  The team left this week after saying that it was "extremely unlikely" that the virus emerged from a lab in Wuhan — and said it was pretty much not worth "further studies."

Ted Cruz Reveals Submitted Questions Not Asked: 'Can We Build Keystone Pipeline if We Add Hunter Biden to the Board?'.  U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) revealed Saturday several questions his colleagues submitted that House impeachment managers did not entertain.  "Can we build the Keystone Pipeline if we add Hunter Biden to the board?" read one, according to Cruz.  That was referring to President Joe Biden's cancellation of the pipeline that would deliver energy from Canada to American refineries.  Biden's move ended 11,000 union jobs.  The wrinkle of Hunter Biden refers to the president's son landing a lucrative position on the board of Burisma, a Ukrainian energy company, despite no experience in energy production or knowledge of the language.

Biden WH can't say how it is refuting perception that the US border is open.  The White House struggled to answer on Thursday [2/11/2021] how it was working to dispel the belief among migrants that the US border is open, instead shifting focus to the administration's "moral and humane" immigration policy, amid a nearly 100 percent surge of illegal crossings.  Speaking to reporters at a briefing, White House press secretary Jen Psaki engaged in a back-and-forth with two reporters about her claim earlier this week that the US is turning away the "vast majority" of migrants at the southern border.  After being pressed on Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador saying this week that migrants believed the borders were open under President Biden, Psaki admitted that what she was saying "is not, I guess, what you're perhaps seeing if you're looking at a portion of the border, but what they are tracking in terms of numbers and data."

Joe Biden Mumbles Through His Face Mask, Blames Trump For His Own Administration's Vaccine Distribution Failures.  Joe Biden mumbled through his face mask and blamed Trump for his own administration's failure to administer vaccines to hundreds of millions of Americans.  Joe Biden is the biggest idiot to ever be installed as president.  The Biden Admin inherited Trump's vaccination program already meeting their target of 100 million shots in 100 days.  Joe Biden has repeatedly claimed he will use the Defense Production Act to speed up vaccinations — but Trump used the DPA repeatedly.  Biden continues to lie about Trump's vaccine distribution plan and blamed him for his own failures.

Joe Biden sure is friendly with China.  I wonder why.
China Applauds Biden for 'Showing Respect' to Xi Jinping in Lunar New Year Call.  Chinese media outlets praised President Joe Biden on Wednesday for what they characterized as a respectful, "positive" call between the head of state and Chinese dictator Xi Jinping.  The Xinhua news agency and the Global Times state propaganda newspaper both highlighted the timing — on the eve of the Lunar New Year — as a gesture of goodwill from the new presidential administration.  The former expressed hope that, after President Donald Trump's tenure featured policies designed to contain the influence of the Chinese Communist Party abroad and frequent condemnations of its human rights atrocities, America under Biden would return to the "right track" of policy favorable to Beijing.

Biden's Policies So Far Benefit Beijing:  China Expert.  Some of President Joe Biden's executive orders are misguided, as they will ultimately benefit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), China expert Gordon Chang said.  "Although he [Biden] talks about extreme competition with China, although he talks about holding China accountable, we have seen in those executive orders a flood of measures that Beijing just absolutely loves," Chang said.  Chang made the comments during a recent interview with The Epoch Times' "American Thought Leaders" program.  Among the executive orders that Biden has signed, Chang highlighted two in particular — one suspending former President Donald Trump's executive order on securing U.S. critical electric infrastructure and one revoking the permit for constructing the Keystone XL pipeline.

Biden Administration Drops Trump Plan to Track Campus 'Confucius Institutes'.  Campus 'Confucius Institutes' have been repeatedly accused of spreading Chinese Communist Party propaganda in the United States for years.  Trump took action on this issue last year, following the outbreak of the Coronavirus pandemic.  Biden is now turning back the clock and reversing this policy, which makes no sense.  Over the past year, there have been multiple cases of people in American academia arrested for unlawful contact with China, even at the top of Harvard's chemistry department.

Public Servants or Parasites?  When did politicians and federal employees start calling themselves "public servants"? Even more importantly, why are we letting them? [...] Take Joe Biden, for example.  He claims to have been in public service for over 50 years.  But what has he done in that time?  He was the first senator to initiate a personal attack on a Supreme Court nominee.  His attack on Robert Bork was shameful, and helped create the current environment of Supreme Court politicization.  He also used the power of his office to enrich his family members.  Exactly how did lunch-bucket Joe become a multimillionaire on the salary of a politician?  I fail to see how that has been a service to the country.

Media Fails to Report on the Booing of Biden Heard at Super Bowl.  Joe Biden has already had a lot of firsts.  Almost immediately, his first broken promise, failing to deliver the $2000 virus relief, and people are not letting him forget it.  Then he had his first court loss, trying to suspend virtually all deportations for the first 100 days and getting slapped down by the judge.  Now according to a lot of people who watched the Super Bowl, he had his first boos at a major event.  He and his wife Jill appeared virtually over a huge screen at the game.  Jill, as usual, did the most talking. [...] While people heard boos and the British media, The Daily Mail and Independent U.K. reported it, not so much American media, although it was acknowledged by this home page editor of Fox News although it didn't seem to have made it onto their front page.

Joe Biden Phone Call On Hunter's Laptop Links Him To Family Business Dealings.  Joe Biden faces revelations that he was personally involved in discussions regarding his family's dirty overseas business dealings, according to email communications found on Hunter Biden's laptop that have been reviewed in their entirety by National File.  "Don't mention Joe being involved," one of Hunter's business partners James Gillar told another Hunter business partner Tony Bobulinski in a WhatsApp text message, referring to Hunter's overseas dealings.  As we reported, Hunter Biden's business dealings link him to Chinese espionage against America, with Joe Biden personally meeting the CEO of a Hunter firm that invested in a Chinese nuclear power company that the Obama DOJ charged with trying to steal American nuclear secrets.

Biden's son-in-law Howard Krein's health care work reportedly draws ethical scrutiny.  President Biden's son-in-law's investment in a health care company involved in the coronavirus vaccine effort is raising eyebrows in ethical circles after the president pledged that family members would have no influence in government matters, according to a report Tuesday [2/9/2021].  Yosi Health CEO Hari Prasad created software that would help make the vaccine process more efficient and sought help from one of his company's first investors, StartUp Health, which employs Biden son-in-law, Howard Krein, as its chief medical officer, ABC News reported.  Prasad sought help from StartUp Health in December to pitch their software platform to government health officials, the report said.  "Our goal with StartUp Health is to leverage their relationships and work with state and federal agencies," he told ABC News.

Joe Biden's Climate Change China Crisis.  President Joe Biden has made fighting climate change the cornerstone of his administration's domestic and international policies.  This presents Biden with a huge China problem.  Biden believes greenhouse gas emissions are causing dangerous climate change.  China is the world's largest emitter of anthropogenic carbon dioxide emissions, emitting more than double America's present emissions and growing.  As such, Biden and his policy team, including John Kerry, his climate change envoy, and Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, see cooperation with China as necessary to reduce the threat of global warming.  Early on, the Biden administration talked tough about China. [...] Although Biden is talking tough with China in public, his policies are already quietly giving Beijing the upper hand in climate negotiations.

Rebuild Better, But Rebuild What?  President Biden, his administration, and many others in the US and elsewhere are suggesting that modern Western capitalism is so bad that it needs to be dismantled and replaced with something else.  "Rebuild better" they say, which — among other things — suggests a demolition of what we currently have. [...] There are some things that exist in America, today, that are so detrimental to our national freedom and well-being that need to be dismantled, but the free market and constitutional protections of individual liberties, cornerstones of the modern Western capitalism, are not among them.

Biden Threatens America's Dominance in Space.  Americans have gotten increasingly excited about our nation's space exploration goals during the last four years.  The culmination of the public-private partnership between Elon Musk's SpaceX and NASA saw Americans cheer wildly as Americans were lifted into space again in May 2020.  This was the first time since the Space Shuttle that Americans flew on U.S.-built spacecraft leaving from American soil.  Now, it appears the Biden administration is once again rolling back the clock on American space dominance.  In his first days in office, Biden gave just tepid approval to the "Artemis" lunar program, yet at the same time called into question Trump's bold plans to land an American on the moon in 2024.

Psaki: A Head Bob From Our Elderly President Does Not Indicate Comprehension.  To quote our 46th president — come on, man.  We knew the White House would eventually have to retreat from Joe Biden's answer on Iran and sanctions in his Super Bowl interview, but not by making it sound as though Biden couldn't keep up with Norah O'Donnell.  Rather than try to spin Biden's answer as no real change from his previous positions, Jen Psaki instead accused O'Donnell of putting words in Biden's mouth, and insinuated that Biden couldn't fend for himself in a national interview.

Psaki When Asked About Biden's EO Forcing Girls to Compete Against Biological Males:  Transgenders are More Important Than Your Daughters.  What about the rights of young girls?  When asked about the White House's message to young girls being forced to compete against biological males, Psaki said Biden's belief is trans rights are human rights.  In other words, Joe Biden believes biological males who identify as transgender, are more important than your daughters.  Psaki then deferred the reporter to the schools that are forced to allow biological males to compete with biological females — because of Joe Biden's executive order.

Biden gets flirty with nurse running vaccine site: 'You look like a freshman!'.  Maybe it's a good thing he was 2,000 miles away.  President Biden had an awkward, flirty moment Monday during a video conference event with health care workers in Arizona, during which he stopped to compliment one nurse for her youthful appearance — even gushing that she looks "like a freshman."  Biden got up to some of his "creepy" old antics when he responded to the nursing supervisor's detailed description of giving COVID-19 shots by asking her about her age.  "Are you a freshman at the university?" Biden asked Brittney Hayes at the end of a conversation in which she had laid out the process for getting shots to people at the State Farm Stadium vaccination site in Glendale.

Joe and Jill Biden get BOOED by Super Bowl fans during pre-game video message.  Moments before Super Bowl LV kicked off Sunday night, President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden made a pre-recorded appearance to honor the more than 463,000 people who have died from COVID-19 by asking for a moment of silence — instead they were booed by some of the crowd.  'Before kickoff we wanted to thank all the frontline healthcare heroes both at the game and watching across the country.  You put yourself at risk to keep the rest of us safe.  You and your families carried us through this year with courage, compassion and kindness.  We couldn't have made it without you.  With all our hearts thank you.  The president said:  'Now as we thank you and all of our essential workers, let's remember we all can do our part to save lives.  Wear masks, stay socially-distanced, get tested, get vaccinated when it's your turn, and most of all let's remember all those who we've lost.

Did Biden Get Booed?  Bidens Make Creepy Video Appearance at Super Bowl, Tell Americans to Wear Masks and Get Vaccinated.  Super Bowl LV: Kansas City Chiefs v. Tampa Bay Buccaneers kicked off Sunday [2/7/2021] at the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida.  According to reports, 22,000 fans attended the Super Bowl on Sunday.  The Bidens barged in and made a creepy video appearance before kickoff to lecture Americans about "social distancing."  Americans just can't get on with their lives because the Democrats have to drone on and on about Covid every second of every day.  Joe Biden and his  handler  wife Jill made a video message from their Delaware basement bunker that played on the jumbotron — as if people watching football and drinking beer want to hear from Dementia Joe.

Biden Invents An Economic Crisis To Justify His Reckless $1.9 Trillion COVID 'Relief'.  President Joe Biden used Friday's [2/5/2021] jobs report as another justification for his massive $1.9 trillion stimulus bill.  "A once-in-a-century virus has decimated our economy, and it's still wreaking havoc on our economy today," he said.  Funny, because that's not what the data show.  Some Democrats are already coming to realize that piling another $1.9 trillion in deficit spending on top of the more than $3 trillion already targeting COVID relief is an enormous mistake.

The Editor says...
Covid-19 was not and is not a "once-in-a-century virus."  Something similar comes along every couple of years — usually in election years.

Joe Biden is Not My (Catholic) President.  It is hard to imagine a worse start to a presidency than Joe Biden signing 42 executive orders in a fenced-in Washington D.C.  The inauguration showed a strong military presence, but few actual citizens.  This presidency bears no resemblance to democracy.  None at all.  And now, with the stroke of a pen, Biden has alienated American Catholics and other Christians who hold strong values about life.  When asked about the abortion policies of the new administration, White House press secretary Jen Psaki responded that Biden is a devout Catholic who had gone to Mass on inauguration day.  Yet, one week later, Biden proved that he is not devout or even Catholic on the issue of abortion.  It is baffling why he considered it an urgent matter to end the Mexico City Policy that restricts taxpayer funding of abortion providers overseas.

Top Democrat Senator Slams Biden:  He's Going In 'Wrong' Direction By Being 'Strictly Partisan'.  A top Democrat Senator slammed President Joe Biden in remarks delivered at a policy event on Thursday, saying that the Democrats "started wrong" and that Biden is going in the wrong direction by being partisan in trying to get a coronavirus stimulus plan passed.  Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV), who made the remarks during an interview with the Bipartisan Policy Center, was talking about Democrats' attempts to pass the coronavirus stimulus package that they want, without bipartisan support, by using the reconciliation process.  "We started wrong," Manchin said.  "And I think that Joe Biden's advisers have led him wrong to start out in a strictly partisan direction.  We should have found something that we could have voted on bipartisan first and then gone down this lane when we hit a roadblock, and they didn't do that, but that's fine, we're going to start this, I'm determined to make it bipartisan because if we go off the rails and there's no bipartisan, you ain't coming back for two years."

White House Appears to Confirm Hunter Biden Still Holds Stake in Chinese Private Equity Firm.  The White House press secretary appeared to confirm that President Joe Biden's son Hunter Biden still holds a stake in a Chinese private equity firm.  "He has been working to unwind his investment," press secretary Jen Psaki said during a Friday press conference when asked about Hunter Biden's stake in Bohai Harvest RST Shanghai Equity Investment Fund Management, commonly known as BHR Partners.  Psaki's remarks confirmed an early report by the Daily Caller saying Hunter Biden still holds a stake in the Chinese company.  She then directed reporters to Hunter Biden for further questions.  "I would certainly point you — he's a private citizen.  I would point you to him or his lawyers on the outside on any update," she added.

This is exactly what Obama would do.  In other words, it was probably Obama's idea.
Biden administration to remove terrorist designation for Yemen's Houthi militia.  The Biden administration said Friday that it is removing the terrorist designation for the Iranian-backed Houthi militia in Yemen — reversing a move made in the final days of the Trump administration and the latest sign of a different approach to the war-torn Middle East.  "After a comprehensive review, we can confirm that [Secretary of State Antony Blinken] intends to revoke the Foreign Terrorist Organization and Specially Designated Global Terrorist designations of Ansarallah," a State Department spokesperson said.  "We have formally notified Congress of the Secretary's intent to revoke these designations and will share more details in the coming days."

Hunter Biden moves family to $5.4 million canal-front home in Venice.  Hunter Biden has moved his family to a stylish $5.4 million canal-front home in Venice, California, DailyMail.com can reveal.  The president's son moved into the three-story property with wife Melissa and their 10-month-old son Beau toward the end of last year and the family is now under 24-hour Secret Service protection.  It's believed the father of five, who turned 51 on Thursday, is paying $25,000 a month to rent the posh property owned by Sweetgreen co-founder and CEO Jonathan Neman.  Hunter has some fresh cash to help pay for the pricey rental.  On Thursday it was revealed he has written a memoir titled Beautiful Things, that will be published April 6.  The advance for the book is said to be as much as $2 million.

Biden's Magical Mystery Energy Plans.  [Scroll down]  Biden said his administration would hire people to transform the American electrical sector to produce power without carbon pollution and provide rebates so that Americans would buy electric cars.  He said jobs would be created for Americans to build electric charging stations all over the country.  He plans to replace with electricity all the energy we get from gas.  Where is all that electricity going to come from?  In the same speech, he answered that question.  He said:  "We're going to take money and invest it in clean energy jobs in America — millions of jobs in wind, solar, and carbon capture" and "We need solar energy cost-competitive with traditional energy."  There's a fundamental problem with that.  Solar energy isn't anywhere close to being cost-competitive with traditional energy even when the sun is shining.  Neither is wind power.  This fact alone means that for every job that Biden creates multiple jobs will be lost.  That point was lost on the American public when they voted for Joe Biden.

The Editor says...
The American public voted to re-elect Donald Trump.  The election was stolen, and the presidency was handed over to Joe Biden, who was unscrupulous enough to accept it.  [#2] Please stop saying "carbon pollution."  Carbon dioxide it not carbon.  Nor is it a pollutant.  [#3] None of the Socialist Democrats' "clean energy" plans will ever replace the affordable energy that we currently enjoy through the combustion of hydrocarbons.  Various loopholes will be opened up to permit you to use gasoline, but only if you pay a hefty tax on every gallon.  The main goal of the Socialist Democrats' platform is to raise taxes, and then spend even more.

Hiding Biden.  The first impeachment failed to oust Trump from office, but it helped secure the White House for Biden.  It shielded him from scrutiny, enabling him and his supporters to cast allegations during the campaign about dubious Biden family business ties as rehashed Trumpian conspiracy theories.  Biden's razor-thin swing state victories might not have materialized if the Trump campaign had been able to gain traction from its October Surprise — a series of articles it helped orchestrate in the New York Post that reported information from a laptop owned by Hunter Biden suggesting corrupt foreign business deals that may have involved his father.  As many as 45 percent of Biden voters said they were unaware of Hunter's financial scandals before the election.  That's likely because Democrats and much of the media discredited or did not report the accusations in the final weeks of the campaign — accusations that were bolstered after the election when Hunter admitted that he has been the subject of an ongoing federal corruption probe since 2018.

Biden says US is at 'war' with virus, but his weekends lack a battle posture.  During President Biden's campaign, "lid" announcements, meaning he would not be seen the rest of those days, were the source of mirth.  And for a commander in chief who has declared war on the coronavirus pandemic, the president's weekend schedules so far have failed to adopt that war-like footing.  Biden took his first Air Force One flight as president on Friday, jetting home to Wilmington, Delaware, where he and first lady Jill Biden are expected to stay through Sunday.  The trip comes after the White House had a quiet two days last weekend, at least in the public eye.  The Biden campaign's habit of calling an early "lid," or informing reporters and news outlets they had no further public events planned, became an easy target of former President Donald Trump, his campaign, and Republican operatives online.

Joe Biden Revives False Claim He Was 'Shot At' While Overseas.  Joe Biden continues to lie about his past.  This time, he brought back a debunked story of him allegedly being shot at while overseas.  At a debate in 2007, Biden claimed he was targeted at the Green Zone in Baghdad.  He had to retract those comments after getting backlash from veterans.

Polis urges Biden administration to keep Space Command, BLM in Colorado.  Gov. Jared Polis (D-Colorado) is calling for the Biden administration to reconsider U.S. Space Command's impending move away from Colorado Springs and to keep the Bureau of Land Management headquartered in Grand Junction.  Polis, Lt. Gov. Dianne Primavera, Colorado Springs Mayor John Suthers and a bipartisan group of state lawmakers wrote in a letter to Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin that the decision to relocate U.S. Space Command to Huntsville, Ala., could "undermine our country's ability to respond to national security threats in space" if allowed to continue without review.

Biden Might [Have a Problem] Once the Migrant Caravan Arrives.  Remember that migrant caravan that started moving towards the United States southern border a few weeks ago?  Well, it's currently stuck in Guatemala, but another one has arisen and is on its way.  The Biden administration does not seem to have much of a plan for it.  Even worse, it appears that the president, who hammered his predecessor for his tough stance on immigration, doesn't have many good options to choose from.

Hunter Biden is Gonna Run for Senate, Isn't He?  Joe Biden has a Hunter Biden problem.  A pretty big one.  Big Tech suppressed the Hunter Biden story and a lot of social media conservatives drift from one trend to another.  There's still an FBI investigation of Hunter Biden, but even if his dad weren't in the White House, the odds of the feds doing anything other than what they did with the investigation of Bernie Sander's wife or Hillary Clinton's emails is slim to none.  But even with the media running cover for Hunter Biden, there's a whole range of awkward material about him out there.  That's not as big a problem for Joe, as it is for Hunter, because the business model of the Biden clan depends on him.  If Hunter Biden isn't close to his father, his economic value diminishes.  And if he's seen as an unstable loose cannon, he's less likely to score business opportunities.  All of this requires a whole bunch of image rehab.  And Simon and Schuster and a bunch of lefty writers were only too happy to help.

Hunter Biden scarfs up a lucrative book deal.  Joe Biden's family and associates are back in business, making money off the family name.  Sure, Biden reportedly admonished his brother to "watch yourself," but that didn't stop brother Frank getting busy advertising his ties to Joe in an ad for a Florida law firm on the day Joe was sworn in.  Son Hunter reportedly never divested himself of his China holdings as had been leaked earlier.  On the Kamala Harris side of things, stepdaughter Ella got a lucrative modeling contract, and niece Maya got herself a book deal and clothing range.  Now son Hunter has got himself a lucrative book deal, too, worth, as the Daily Mail reports, up to $2 million, about his dissolute life.  The White House dismisses it as a nothingburger since it's a book about a "personal struggle." But as Hunter said of his lucrative board seat on Ukrainian energy company Burisma, it's a fair guess to say it "probably" would not have happened had his name not been "Biden."  The book's title is Beautiful Things, and in this case, unlike Ukrainian energy, he actually writes about something he knows about, which is his life of addiction and drugs.

Simon and Schuster Give Hunter Biden Book Deal After Canceling Senator Josh Hawley Book Deal.  An interesting compare-&-contrast arises amid reports out today of Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, getting a book deal to publish his memoir "Beautiful Things".  The controversial life of Hunter Biden includes abusive relationships, sex scandals, drug use and retaining a position of affluence by trading on his father's position in government.  Everything surrounding Hunter Biden is not only sketchy, it is the life of a very troubled, manipulative, opportunistic and creepy person... e.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g.

Biden brings back kids in cages.  How's this for buried news?  The Biden administration, through executive order, is scrapping President Trump's "Remain in Mexico" policy for illegal border crossers claiming asylum.  Which means, catch-and-release, but detention centers, for presumably vulnerable "unaccompanied minors."  That would likely include 14-year-old gang bangers, even as the media would present only toddlers.

Joe Biden: 'We're Willing to Work with Beijing When It's in America's Interest'.  President Joe Biden said he is willing to work with the communist government of China as long as it is in America's interests during a speech on Thursday [2/4/2021].  "We're willing to work with Beijing when it's in America's interest to do so," he said during a speech at the State Department outlining his approach to diplomacy.  The president promised to confront China's abuses on economic issues, human rights, intellectual property, and global governance, but his approach was starkly different from that of former President Donald Trump.  "We'll also take on directly the challenges posed by our prosperity, security, and democratic values by our most serious competitor, China," Biden said.

Joe Biden revives controversial claim that he was 'shot at' overseas.  President Biden on Thursday [2/4/2021] told State Department employees he was "shot at" overseas — reviving a claim that previously stirred controversy.  "You have great personal courage.  I've been with some of you when we've been shot at," Biden told a group of diplomatic aides in Washington.  Biden did not offer a detailed description of being shot at.  But he was forced to walk back a similar claim in 2007 as veterans warned him not to exaggerate.  Biden said during a CNN-hosted Democratic presidential debate in 2007 that he was "shot at" inside Baghdad's fortified Green Zone.  He later revised the claim, saying that in fact, "I was near where a shot landed."

Chasing the Dragon.  The Biden family's ties to China are now well known.  His son, Hunter, has made millions from an investment partnership called Bohai Harvest RST (BHR) that he built after stepping off Air Force Two in 2012 while his father was Vice President, making a state visit to Beijing.  BHR is a private equity firm founded by Hunter Biden and funded with $1.5 billion from the Chinese government via the Bank of China.  That was the first of many other deals Hunter and Chinese military-connected firms would broker.  In 2015, a Chinese state-run military contractor called Aviation Industry Corporation of China (AVIC), acquired a 51 percent stake in Henniges Automotive Co., an American company developing "dual-use" technologies with military applications.  The other 49 percent was purchased by Bohai Harvest RST (BHR).  Despite the dual-use concerns, the Obama administration approved the deal.  Hunter was involved in another deal called Chinese General Nuclear, a Chinese company that was implicated by the FBI in stealing nuclear secrets from the United States.  Executives from that company were arrested.  In 2017, he also worked on securing a deal with CEFC China Energy to invest in US energy projects, according to documents released by Senate Republicans investigating the matter.  That deal eventually fell through, but not before CEFC's founder and former chairman Ye Jianming reportedly gave Hunter a 2.8-carat diamond after a Miami business meeting.

Hunter Biden is to publish a memoir called Beautiful Things in April about his battle with drugs — despite his father Joe saying his family would NOT cash in on presidency.  Hunter Biden, son of President Joe Biden and an ongoing target for conservatives, has a memoir coming out April 6.  The book is called 'Beautiful Things' and will center on the younger Biden's well-publicized struggles with substance abuse, according to Gallery Books, an imprint of Simon & Schuster.  Acquired in the fall of 2019, 'Beautiful Things' was kept under wraps even as Biden's business dealings became a fixation of then-President Donald Trump and others during the election and his finances a matter of investigation by the Justice Department.

Biden Is Already Failing On His COVID Vaccine Promises.  When not attacking the Trump administration for the pace of COVID-19 vaccine distribution, candidate Joe Biden said he'd dramatically accelerate the rate at which Americans got treated.  What's more, he was supposed to be ready on day one.  At least, that's what he and his team kept telling the public.  So why is the growth rate of daily vaccinations decelerating?  And why is President Biden now busy making excuses?  Before taking office, Biden stated that he'd directed his team to prepare a "much more aggressive effort, with more federal involvement and leadership, to get things back on track."

Beijing Tells Biden Administration to Play by the CCP's Rules.  China's top diplomat Yang Jiechi warned the Biden administration not to cross Beijing's "red line" in a half-hour speech on the evening of Feb. 1.  "The United States should stop interference in the affairs of Hong Kong, Tibet, and Xinjiang," Yang said, calling the issues regarding the three regions China's "internal affairs." He made the remarks while speaking at a virtual event hosted by New York-based nonprofit the National Committee on U.S.-China Relations.  Yang added:  "They constitute a red line that must not be crossed.  Any trespassing would end up undermining China-U.S. relations and the United States' own interests."  He also told the United States that it should "strictly abide by the One China principle" with regards to Taiwan, a self-ruled island that Beijing claims is part of its territory.

Ex-colleague of Hunter Biden's lawyer gets top DOJ post.  Hunter Biden hired a new attorney to assist with his federal criminal defense a month before his father became president.  On Inauguration Day, one of that lawyer's close colleagues was tapped to temporarily lead the Justice Department's criminal division.  The moves put the new DOJ official atop a powerful arm of the justice system as his former colleague represents a client fending off a criminal probe.  While their connection will fuel scrutiny of a politically charged matter, ethics experts say strictly adhering to conflict-of-interest rules can address any legitimate concerns.

Hunter Biden's Attorney Just So Happens to Be Tied to White Collar Crimes Official in Biden DOJ.  In the Swamp, there are no coincidences.  The Biden administration tapped an official to work in the white collar crimes division of the Department of Justice that is directly linked to a Hunter Biden lawyer.  The official's selection was announced shortly after the Biden inauguration.  "Nicholas McQuaid, a former federal prosecutor in Manhattan who served as a White House lawyer during the Obama presidency, has been named the acting leader of the U.S. Justice Department's criminal division," the announcement said.  It explained it is "a role that will come with oversight of the Biden administration's early white-collar enforcement efforts."  An Axios report documents that McQuaid is tied to former federal prosecutor Chris Clark, who is a partner at the firm Latham & Watkins.  In December, Hunter Biden hired Clark.  The report states bluntly that, "Clark worked on multiple cases with Nicholas McQuaid, another partner in the firm's white-collar defense and investigations practice who is now leading DOJ's criminal division."

Biden is the most radical left-wing president in US history, period.  Joe Biden is off to the most left-wing start of any Democratic president in recent memory.  Just two weeks later, the dulcet tones of Biden's inaugural address already seem an artifact of a bygone era.  Republicans will hammer him for the rest of his presidency for failing to deliver on his unifying message, but the fact is that Biden is governing as he promised — further to the left of his own record, further to the left of his ex-boss, former President Barack Obama, and further to the left of any Democrat who made his career prior to the ascendency of the cultural left.

Biden Wants to Kill 80 Percent of America's Energy.  For millennials, supporting green energy is cool and even virtuous.  It's a popular and costless way to save the planet — until the power doesn't flow through the grid.  Then the laptops, hairdryers, Netflix shows, computer games and iPhones run out of juice.  That may happen one of these days — and in the not-too-distant future (just ask Californians about blackouts), when the sun isn't shining and the wind isn't blowing.  Which brings me to President Joe Biden's take-no-prisoners approach to energy.  The goals:  kill fossil fuels; stop the building of pipelines; enter international treaties that outlaw fossil fuel use; end drilling on federal lands; strangle the oil and gas industries with regulatory assaults.  And then throw billions and perhaps trillions of tax dollars at wind and solar farms.  So, let's go back to the question I ask students:  How much of our energy needs today are met with fossil fuels — the so-called dirty energy?

Biden wants to make his DOJ funnel money to the Left.  One of former Attorney General Jeff Sessions's most important acts in office was his genuinely swamp-clearing 2017 reversal of a corrupt Obama administration practice at the Department of Justice.  Sessions forbade the department from reaching settlements with deep-pocketed defendants that involved cash payments, not to taxpayers or victims, but to third parties — in practice, often to left-wing social justice organizations.  "When the federal government settles a case against a corporate wrongdoer, any settlement funds should go first to the victims and then to the American people," Sessions said, "not to bankroll third-party special interest groups or the political friends of whoever is in power."  Unfortunately, one of President Biden's first acts in office was to initiate the reinstatement of this corrupt practice.

Sunday Talks, Stephen Miller Discusses Impact of JoeBama's Executive Orders.  Stephen Miller appeared [1/31/2021] with Maria Bartiromo to discuss the impact of JoeBama's blitz of executive orders in the first ten days of the administration.  Miller outlines how these more than 40 executive orders work to undermine the U.S. economy, U.S worker and ultimately U.S. national security.  [Video clip]

Any excuse will do.
Biden working from home, cancels speech after DC gets 2-inch dusting.  President Biden decided to work from home — the White House — Monday despite what New Yorkers getting pounded by a foot-and-a-half of snow would consider a mere dusting for DC, as just about 2 inches coated the nation's capital.  Biden kept late-afternoon plans to host 10 Republican senators to discuss COVID-19 relief at the White House, but canceled plans to speak at the State Department a few blocks away.  After 10 p.m.  Sunday, Biden tweeted a daytime photo of himself outside a snowy West Wing, writing, "Grateful for the short commute on days like these."  Hours later, a White House official confirmed to a pool reporter that the State Department trip was nixed due to the snow.

Biden's Catholic Praetorian Guard.  Apart from the criticism of Gomez, Biden enjoyed almost a Catholic coronation on inauguration day.  It began with a Mass in his honor at St.  Matthew's Cathedral, where the homilist, Jesuit Father Kevin O'Brien, burbled, "We have much to look forward to as a country because of your and Kamala Harris' leadership."  By the end of that day, Biden had already signed an executive order promoting transgenderism, the opening shot in what is sure to be the most anti-Catholic presidency ever.  In his inaugural address, he had the gall to quote St. Augustine, whose warnings about the decadent "city of man" perfectly apply to Joe Biden's vision for America.  St. Augustine taught that realizing the common good requires adherence to the natural moral law.  Joe Biden's agenda is to reject the natural moral law in favor of a woke relativism that reflects nothing more than the caprice of powerful elites.

China Analysts:  Biden Giving China 'Everything' They Want, China Going To Be 'Quite Aggressive'.  Two China policy analysts warned that communist China is going to be "quite aggressive" toward the United States because they believe that they will surpass it and do not see President Joe Biden as a tough opponent.  "Well, Biden right now — the Chinese are testing him, but they don't really have to lift a finger to do this, because he's giving them everything that they want," said Gordon Chang, author of "The Coming Collapse of China," said on Fox News' "Sunday Morning Futures."

China Doesn't Have to Lift a Finger to Push Biden Around.  "Xenophobia" has been a constant Biden theme.  On January 31 of last year, President Trump announced the "travel ban," prohibitions and restrictions on arrivals from China.  Within moments of the announcement, Biden went on the attack.  "This is no time for Donald Trump's record of hysterical xenophobia and fear mongering to lead the way instead of science," he said.  Biden's campaign said the attack was not in response to the travel ban, yet on the following day the candidate expressed the same thoughts in a tweet:  "We need to lead the way with science — not Donald Trump's record of hysteria, xenophobia, and fear-mongering."  There was nothing "xenophobic" about Trump's travel ban.  It was imposed on arrivals from the country where the disease first appeared.  The ban, therefore, saved lives, and it would have saved even more if it had been stricter, announced sooner, and had been more rigorously enforced.

Schweizer: Biden Isn't Concerned about How Trading on Family Name Is Corrupt, 'Business as Usual'.  On Friday's [1/29/2021] broadcast of the Fox News Channel's "Hannity," Breitbart News senior contributor Peter Schweizer [...] said, "I think the recent report about Joe admonishing his brother, two things stand out, Sean.  First of all, it seems kind of pre-canned.  It's almost like they're trying to leak the fact that Joe is concerned about this, even though the family's been doing this for decades.  But second of all, notice what Joe Biden actually tells his brother.  What he says is, watch what you're doing, you don't want to get hurt.  There's no mention of how this is corrupt, how this is going to look bad, how this is going to affect the country, how it might create bad perceptions about cronyism and corruption.  There's none of that.  The focus is on the family and family members getting hurt.  So, it's going to be business as usual."  [Video clip]

Biden signs a stack of unilateral edicts and decrees
Biden signed FORTY TWO executive actions in his first 10 days and here's the full list.  I'm old enough to remember October when Joe Biden said you can't govern by executive order "unless you're a dictator."  Welp, in his first week and a half in office, Biden signed 42 executive orders, memos, and proclamations, outstripping every other president in history by about a hundred miles.  You could count the orders of most presidents during the same timeframe on one hand, even with the growing trend of governing by executive fiat.  Translation:  This number is insane.  I mean, does Congress even matter anymore?


Biden brood already cashing in on Joe's presidency.  They can't quit the grift.  No sooner had Joe Biden won the White House than his family went back to trying to make a buck off his name.  The latest sordid example involves one of Joe's younger brothers, Frank Biden, appearing in a Florida law firm's ad — on Inauguration Day no less.  The ad used the president's name to draw attention to the Berman Law Group's class-action suit against sugar cane growers.  "The two Biden brothers have long held a commitment to pushing environmental issues to the forefront," says the ad.  "The president-elect has vowed to rejoin the Paris Agreement and wants to set ambitious greenhouse gas reduction targets."  The ad, first reported by CNBC, appeared in the Daily Business Review and carried a picture of Frank Biden and quotes him saying, "My brother is a model for how to go about doing this work."  How touching.  And shameless.

Attorneys General Blast Joe Biden For Signing Record Number of Executive Orders in First Week in Office.  Several state attorneys general wrote a letter to Joe Biden slamming him for signing a record number of executive orders in his first week in office.  Dictator Biden has signed approximately 3 dozen executive orders in his first week in office.  Biden is unilaterally legislating and has completely ignored Congress — the Democrats control both the House and Senate yet Joe Biden is moving full speed ahead issuing executive fiats.  Attorneys general of Texas, Mississippi, West Virginia, Arkansas, Montana and Indiana, signed a letter to Joe Biden reminding him that a US president has "limited power."

Hiding Hunter Biden laying low in LA, starting art career with shady dealer.  As federal prosecutors continue their criminal probes into Hunter Biden's taxes and international business dealings, the President's son — shuttling between Washington DC and a sprawling Hollywood Hills home — is lying low, consulting with lawyers and focusing on his new career in art.  Biden, who turns 51 next week, is prepping a solo show with Soho art dealer Georges Berges, who currently represents Sylvester Stallone.  Berges was once arrested for "terrorist threats" and assault with a deadly weapon in California and has strong ties to China.

Unite and Heal With Show Trials and Fascist Purges.  Joe Biden has called for "unity" and "healing".  And nobody knows as much about healing as Joe whose wife has a doctorate in education from the university that hosts his Biden Institute and the Beau Biden Foundation which was charging $3K for lessons on preventing online child sex grooming even as Hunter's laptop with the Foundation's sticker allegedly showed him doing it.  Except maybe Joe's brother who took out $650,000 in personal loans from a company that bankrupted local hospitals while trading on his brother's name and connections to his campaign. [...] When asked how he defines unity, Joe Biden, with the help of three teleprompters and a small staff communicating with him through his earpiece and a series of frantic signals and hoots, explained that, "If you pass a piece of legislation that breaks down on party lines but it get passed, it doesn't means there wasn't unity — it just means it wasn't bipartisan."

Biden Inc: White House struggles to rein in potential family business conflicts.  The Biden administration only took over the White House last week, but it's already had to grapple with a web of ethical dilemmas created by the complicated business dealings of President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris's families.  Biden's campaign was dogged by allegations that his youngest son, lobbyist-investor Hunter, profited from the Biden name, specifically in China and Ukraine.  His lucrative role with oligarch-linked Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings, for instance, was central to former President Donald Trump's first impeachment.  And during the transition, it was revealed Hunter was under a federal tax investigation dating back to 2018 into his foreign associations and accusations of money laundering.  Now Biden Inc. is causing problems for the White House.

Joe Biden's Abortion Extremism.  Joe Biden's supposed campaign of unity now extends to forcing American taxpayers to subsidize abortion regardless of their moral qualms.  In an executive order on Thursday [1/28/2021], Biden rescinded the Mexico City policy, which prohibits U.S. foreign-aid money from funding groups that provide or promote abortion in other countries.  President Ronald Reagan was the first to enact the policy, which has been in place under every subsequent Republican president and undone by every subsequent Democrat.  Despite his professed personal opposition to abortion, President Biden is no exception.

Certain Truths Won't Be 'Imposed' by Biden, a 'Devout Catholic'.  President Joe Biden and his press secretary, Jen Psaki, have assured us he is a "devout Catholic" who "attends church regularly."   The question is not new but should be asked again and a credible answer demanded.  How can one be devout about one's faith and not comport with Scripture and the teachings of the Catholic Church? [...] Many Catholic leaders have criticized him for his stand on abortion, same-sex marriage, and transgender equality.  Biden has added to his pro-choice stand a reversal on federal funding of abortion, which he long opposed until the 2020 presidential campaign.

The Editor says...
"Joe Biden is a devout Catholic" is not the answer to every question.  It isn't even true.

Funny how the party that claims to be for the little guy always supports the billionaires.  [Scroll down]  I have never seen anyone as dangerous in the White House as Joe Biden in his first nine days as he signs executive order after executive order, some 40 now at last count.  He has stacked his cabinet with radical leftists pushing the green agenda to destroy America.  He sends out John Kerry, with multiple mansions, a yacht and a private jet, to tell the public that is good for them that he is destroying their jobs.  After all, he drove a Tesla from Massachusetts to D.C.  On Fox News, I heard left-wing Juan Williams say he didn't really care about Kerry's or anyone else's lifestyle, even as they are dictating how all of us should live our lives.  [...] And no matter how often all these supposedly smart cabinet members, as well as Biden himself, his vice president, Kamala Harris, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and others repeat that we have to get rid of oil and coal to control temperatures and the climate, not one sock puppet at the Washington Post or any other journalist, including at Fox, ask for scientific evidence to support their theory and destructive policies.  There is no scientific evidence, so they never ask.  They just go along.

Biden warned brother over business dealings: report.  President Biden warned his younger brother Frank Biden not to get involved in any business deals that would dog the family before the younger Biden touted his relationship with the commander-in-chief in an Inauguration Day ad, according to a new report.  The former veep, whose scandal-scarred son Hunter Biden is under federal investigation for potential tax fraud, reportedly issued the stark warning to his younger brother on the campaign trail.

Hunter Biden Continues To Hold Stake In Chinese Private Equity Firm, Records Show, Despite Reports That He Was Planning To Divest.  Hunter Biden continues to hold a 10% stake in the Chinese private equity firm BHR Partners, Chinese business records show, despite multiple reports from December suggesting he was divesting his position in the company.  Both the Daily Mail and Fox News reported in late December that Hunter Biden was in the process of offloading his stake in BHR. Both outlets cited an unnamed source with Hunter Biden and his business dealings.  But Hunter Biden continues to hold his equity stake in BHR through his company, Skaneateles LLC, as of Wednesday, according to Qixinbao and Baidu, two independent services that provide business records on Chinese corporations based on China's National Credit Information Publicity System.

One week in, Biden administration shows its exquisite cruelty.  Joe Biden was inaugurated a week ago, and like the dictator his handlers have long yearned to install, his has started out as a cruel administration.  His 22 executive orders so far, more than any other president in history, have already sent tens of thousands of jobs down the drain with coldhearted carelessness.  He stopped construction of the Keystone XL pipeline with the stroke of his pen.  He has put all those who were working on the border wall out of work.  As all those who opposed his candidacy suspected, he is doing China's bidding.  Of course he is; the Chinese own him.  Every single person he has appointed to his Cabinet is aligned with China as well.  It is quite likely that Biden has no idea how catastrophic the E.O.s he has apparently signed have already been for blue-collar workers across the country.  Biden's handlers are leading him around by the nose, putting the words they compose on his teleprompter, which he has difficulty reading.  It took the Obama administration a year to do this much damage.

House GOP Calls on UPenn to Turn Over Records on Biden Center and China Funding.  Top Republicans on three House investigative committees are demanding that the University of Pennsylvania release funding records on the school's Penn Biden Center, a policy institute launched by President Joe Biden in 2017.  In a letter sent Thursday [1/28/2021] to University of Pennsylvania president Amy Gutmann, the lawmakers also asked for records related to the recent surge in donations to the university from China as well as information on any contracts and agreements between Penn and the Chinese government.  The university has received over $72 million from China since the Penn Biden Center opened — up from $21 million in the same time frame prior — prompting questions from watchdog groups and lawmakers about whether the uptick had any relation to the center.

Joe Biden is collaborating with Russia!  And the reporters don't care.
Off to a Bad START: Putin Schools Biden with One Phone Call.  According to Russian news service Ria Novosti, on Tuesday, the presidents of the Russian Federation and the United States, Vladimir Putin and Joe Biden, held a telephone conversation.  During the conversation, Biden and Putin agreed to a five-year extension of START-3, until 2026, "100% on Russian terms, without additions, in the form in which it was originally signed."  As a result of the call, the authorized Duma committees were ordered to urgently take the necessary steps to extend START-3.  On that same day, Putin submitted to the State Duma a bill on the ratification of START-3 through 2026; it immediately passed.

Biden Has to Rely on Note Cards for Simple Introductions to Executive Orders.  We reported during the campaign on Joe Biden's frequent confusion, misstatements, gaffes and fits of anger when challenged by a question.  But he was able to have limited debates thanks to the virus and hide out in his basement for a good part of the campaign.  When he did venture out, it often didn't go well. [...] He had frequent problems getting basic facts and numbers correct.  As we reported yesterday, that hasn't gotten better since.  He got confused about how many doses of the Wuhan coronavirus vaccine he was ordering, first saying that they were getting 100 billion, then saying, correctly 100 million.  After that he said, twice that would then be enough for 300 Americans.  He then corrected that to 300 million.  Now there's this video today that is more than a little troubling.  Here he is apparently needing to read off of note cards just to know what executive orders he's signing.  [Video clip]

Frank Biden uses his brother Joe's name in Inauguration Day ad for law firm.  The Biden family has done very well for themselves with the help of Joe Biden's name and connections.  Now there is another example of a family member cashing in on the family connection.  An ad for a Florida law firm featured Joe Biden's brother Frank touting their relationship.  The ad ran on Inauguration Day.  Subtle, eh?  The ad is on behalf of the Berman Law Group based in Boca Raton, Florida.  Biden is a non-attorney adviser to the firm.  Frank Biden has a home in Florida.  In 2019 lawyers with the Berman Law Group filed a lawsuit alleging a link between controlled burns of sugar cane by the sugar industry and health issues of surrounding residents.  Frank Biden joined the law group in 2018 as a senior adviser.  Biden has spoken about the lawsuit since it was filed.  As a matter of fact, he spoke about the lawsuit publicly the same day Joe Biden launched his environmental plan during his campaign.  "Our request is simple, and it's easily accomplished:  Stop burning the cane," Frank Biden said.  At the time he was asked if there was any coordination between the lawsuit and the Biden presidential campaign.  No, no, that isn't what is happening here, he said.  The timing of the lawsuit and Biden's release of his environmental policy was only a coincidence.

Who's in charge?  Biden ear piece tells him to salute Marines; Instead he says: 'Salute the Marines'.  Some viewing the inauguration on Jan. 20 noticed that Joe Biden was wearing an earpiece.  Some also noted that he didn't salute Marines upon entering the Capitol building but instead said "salute the Marines."  One Twitter user noted:  "He is using an ear piece!!!! Watch on C-span @ ~3.5 hours in, as Joe Biden enters the capitol building he DOES NOT SALUTE the Marines standing there.  Instead as he enters the building he says "Salute the Marines."

The Editor says...
If it is true that Biden wears an earpiece and his handlers tell him what to do, minute-by-minute, then the earpiece is connected to a radio, and the operating frequency of that radio link should be relatively easy to discover.  Need I say more?  If I get arrested for speculating about this subject, that will prove we're right:  He really is somebody's puppet.  Even more so than Barack H. Obama.

Dem Sen. Tammy Duckworth 'profoundly disappointed' Biden Cabinet doesn't include Asian Americans.  Sen. Tammy Duckworth said she's "profoundly disappointed" President Biden hasn't chosen a person of Asian American or Pacific Islander descent to fill his Cabinet positions.  The Illinois Democrat, an Army combat veteran of Thai descent, told CBS News in an interview Tuesday [1/26/2021] that Mr. Biden's decision not to appoint a Cabinet secretary who is Asian American or Pacific Islander, or AAPI, signals to the community that they aren't important.  "Yes, I am profoundly disappointed also that there is not a member of the AAPI community at the Cabinet secretary level," Ms. Duckworth said.  "And I think that for a Cabinet that is so historically diverse, to not have someone of AAPI descent at the Cabinet level is a real missed opportunity.

Oh, no.  White people!  How could this happen?
Report: West Wing Offices in Joe Biden's White House Are Occupied Mostly by White People.  An analysis of West Wing offices thus far handed out to senior advisers demonstrates that President Joe Biden's innermost circle of aides with prized real estate in the building is mostly white.  Out of 22 offices on the first and second floors, only four offices, including one occupied by Vice President Kamala Harris, are held by nonwhite individuals.  The rest — a supermajority of 18 such West Wing offices — are occupied by white people, according to Politico.

Buyer's Remorse?  Let's Blame the Press.  [Scroll down]  Evidence of legacy news media propaganda during the four years of the Trump administration are legion.  Reporting about the Biden family influence-for-graft business was nonexistent.  In fact, Joe's brother and his son received millions of dollars from China, the Ukraine, and Russia. [...] The legacy media didn't bother to mention that Hunter Biden is under federal investigation, and that Joe may be implicated.  Hunter Biden's laptop had been abandoned and its contents were legally disclosed.  The contents revealed that Joe Biden was actively involved in Hunter's business dealings — even to the point of sharing an office with a Chinese businessman.  The laptop even disclosed that a percentage of the business proceeds were to go to Joe.  Yet Joe has always claimed he had no involvement in Hunter's business.  The legacy media spiked stories on the subject and social media censored anyone attempting to report it.

Joe Biden sure does a lot of favors for China.  I wonder why.
Insane: Joe Biden Signs Executive Order Banning the Term "China Virus".  Joe Biden signed an executive order today [1/26/2021] that banned the term "China virus."  It's not clear how this will help with the pandemic.  The coronavirus is widely believed today to have been created in a lab in Wuhan China.  This was one of his 37 executive orders in six days.

Who is running the Biden administration?  Is it Joe Biden?  Maybe, but many question whether he has the mental capacity and the energy to run the show.  In [a recent] post about the Biden administration's early hard-left initiatives, I speculated that Susan Rice, Ron Klain, or some combination of the two are determining Biden's domestic policy agenda under pressure from the left.  On the foreign policy side, no known policy has yet emerged about which to speculate.  Ric Grenell, who until recently was the acting DNI, believes that Rice is dictating both domestic and foreign policy.  Rice is Biden's White House Domestic Policy Council director, so domestic policy falls under her jurisdiction.  Rice's experience, however, is in the areas of foreign policy and national security.  Thus, it's plausible to believe that she is a major player in these areas, as well.  Given Rice's lack of experience and expertise in domestic policy, what I wonder is whom she is looking to for guidance in this area.  She may be looking to her former boss, Barack Obama.

The Editor says...
Barack H. Obama, in turn, appeared to make very few decisions without consulting Valerie Jarrett, who was always close by, because she lived with the Obamas in the White House.  That's just weird.

"Kiss My Ear!": Biden Rambles and Jumbles Speech During COVID Press Conference.  During a coronavirus press conference on Tuesday [1/26/2021], President Joe Biden mumbled and jumbled through a speech, making little sense.  At one point, Biden appeared to be calling out a lawmaker who refused to wear a mask as he incoherently rambled about kissing his ear.  "One Congressman pointed out, he used very colorful term to say, 'wearing a mask, I tell them to kiss my ear, I'm not going to wear a mask.'  Well, guess what, not very American.  The fact is, you want to be patriotic, you're gonna protect people," Biden said.

Some Inconvenient Comments Surface Involving Joe Biden and His Executive Orders.  According to Joe Biden, Joe Biden is a dictator.  No, that's not some misleading snark being delivered by the nebulous "right wing" media.  Rather, it's a statement based in an inconvenient past commentary offered by the president delivered prior to taking office.  In October of 2020, Biden appeared for a "town hall" with ABC News.  This is what he had to say about the use of executive orders without consensus.  [Video clip]  The initial question posed relates to raising taxes.  Biden then segues into a general spill about how he believes you can't just do things via executive order.  He ends by citing the need for consensus, a clear punt to the idea that he needs the legislature to actually legislate vs. him just enacting his will.  But what's his actual record now that he's president?  Biden signed 17 executive orders in his first few days in office compared to just one for Donald Trump.

Biden's False Catholicism.  [Scroll down]  Just as Biden dared black voters not to support him at the risk of their racial identity, Biden dared Catholic voters not to elect him despite his obvious qualifications of personal religiosity and chumminess with the Pope.  At the same time his campaign was protecting Biden from chancing specifics about his policy positions, there was a steady stream of video shots of Biden wryly crossing himself, and irreligious news outlets publishing smarmy profiles taking reverent note of the ever-present rosary in Biden's pocket and his weekly attendance at Mass.  At the first White House briefing on the evening of the inauguration, press secretary Jen Psaki batted away a legitimate question about Biden's promise to restore federal funding for abortion with, "'I will take the opportunity to remind all of you that he is a devout Catholic.'"  But that's the point:  has anyone taken the opportunity to remind Joe Biden about being a devout Catholic?  Archbishop Gomez's statement may have been his attempt to do that.

Marjorie Taylor Greene:  Articles of Impeachment Against Biden Prompted by 'Pattern of Abuse of Power'.  Newly-elected Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) told NTD that her decision to introduce articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden was motivated by what she claimed was "abuse of power."  Greene introduced articles of impeachment on Jan. 21, the day after Biden's inauguration, with her office announcing in a statement that the articles concern the president's alleged actions involving abuse of power "by allowing his son, Hunter Biden, to siphon off cash from America's greatest enemies Russia and China."  In the interview with NTD, Greene elaborated on this, saying, "we cannot have a president of the United States who is compromised, and has shown a clear pattern of behavior, which is his using his position of power to help his son, Hunter Biden, also his brother and himself, to make a lot of extra money through corrupt business deals with foreign countries."

Rule by Decree:  Joe Biden Sets Record for Executive Orders in First Week.  President Joe Biden has issued more executive orders in his first week in office — not yet complete, as of this writing — than any of his 45 predecessors.  As of January 25, 2021, Biden has "issued 33 executive orders, actions, proclamations, memoranda and agency directives," according to CNN.  Twenty-one of these, according to the White House website, are executive orders.

Joe Biden Mumbles to Himself, Grapples with His Pen as He Sits Down to Sign Executive Orders.  78-year-old Joe Biden signed a series of executive orders on Tuesday as he trashed Americans as racist, morally deprived people.  Biden mumbled to himself and grappled with his pen as he sat down to sign the orders.  'Wait a minute... tryin to put my pen away here,' Biden mumbled to himself as he struggled to put his pen away for 10 seconds straight.  Joe Biden's mental capacity is rapidly declining yet the media chooses to ignore his obvious signs of dementia.

Grenell Has a Theory About Who's Running a 'Shadow Presidency' in the Biden Administration.  Former Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell believes that the person calling the shots in the White House is not the president or vice president, but rather, Susan Rice.  The former Obama national security adviser is now the White House Domestic Policy Council director and Grenell called that "a joke."  "Look, I've said it before but I think it's worth repeating... she's been given a portfolio as to domestic policy.  We all know that that's a joke," he said Monday on Fox News.  Though she lacks experience in domestic policy, "she's run the national security portfolio and certainly has run the U.N. portfolio," Grenell said.  "She knows the State Department and certainly wants to be the secretary of state," he added, "so there's no question that she's running domestic and foreign policy."

Ric Grenell doubles down on claim Susan Rice is the 'shadow' president calling the shots.  Former acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell said that, based on President Joe Biden's initial executive actions, he believes someone else is actually setting the agenda — Susan Rice.  Grenell raised eyebrows earlier this month when he first said he believes that Rice, who was President Obama's UN ambassador and national security adviser and is now serving as Biden's domestic policy director, is calling the shots in the current administration.  "Susan Rice has been tapped to do domestic policy, and what is really interesting about that is she's got no experience in domestic policy," Grenell, who served as acting DNI and U.S. ambassador to Germany under former President Trump, said.  "She is going to be somebody who is incredibly influential.  Remember that she was National Security advisor so she knows that entire apparatus."  Grenell repeated his views Monday [1/25/2021] in an interview with Fox News' Maria Bartiromo.  [Video clip]

More about Susan Rice.

Does Joe Know?  Does the mentally impaired Joseph R. Biden know that he was put into the presidency by a small committee* of hard Left operatives, and is currently serving as a figurehead, as all decisions about policy and personnel are made by others? [...] My bet is that Joe does not know.  Why?  Because committee frontman and marketing director Barack Obama in a recent interview with Stephen Colbert explained his ideal third term:  "I used to say if I can make an arrangement where I had a stand-in or frontman or frontwoman and they had an earpiece in and I was just in my basement in my sweats looking through the stuff and I could sort of deliver the lines while someone was doing all the talking and ceremony, I'd be fine with that because I found the work fascinating."

More about Obama speculating about his third term.

Operation Warp Speed staff:  We had 300-plus meetings with Biden's team reviewing the plan.  Did the outgoing Trump administration leave Joe Biden and his COVID-19 team without a plan to deal with the pandemic?  For the first week of the new administration, the messaging has emphasized the absence of any logistical plans, inventory control, or any coherent guidance.  White House officials tell reporters anonymously that the Biden team had to "start from scratch."  That's utter and complete malarkey, officials from Operation Warp Speed tell National Review today.  They held over 300 meetings with Biden's transition team members and laid out a clear plan for them to follow.  Furthermore, the results prove their plan worked.

So How's Biden's First Week Going?  A Side-By-Side Look At What He Promised Versus What He's Doing.  It's been less than a week since Joe Biden's inauguration.  In that time, how has Biden's campaign rhetoric matched his actions in office?  I'm not fooling around with "pants on fire" or childish Pinocchio ratings like the legacy media does (but, outrageously, won't now that Biden is in office).  He either lied or he didn't.  As adults you can make up your own minds.  During the campaign, Biden promised that he had a plan to "change the course" of the COVID pandemic.  But once in office, he admitted that "there is nothing we can do" to change the pandemic's course (trajectory is a synonym of "course" as used here).  So, he had no plan.

Caution:  This item comes from CNN and is replete with bias.
Biden's authority is on the line already in [the] first full week of [his] presidency.  As his first full week in the White House begins, Joe Biden already faces critical early tests of a presidency premised on political compromise and uniting Washington to fight the pandemic.  The President's team Sunday appealed for two things that may ultimately be elusive:  time to stand up an aggressive attempt to finally turn around the Covid-19 nightmare and Republican buy-in for his $1.9 trillion economic relief plan.  In the week ahead, Biden is expected to unleash a new blitz of executive actions to deliver momentum to his new administration — on Monday, for instance, removing the ban on transgender people serving in the military.

I have no doubt that Mr. and Mrs. Biden believe it, too, and they don't care.
At Least One Third of the Nation Believes Joe Biden Stole the Election — Unchanged from December.  One third of the nation believes that Joe Biden won the presidency due to election fraud, according to a Monmouth poll released on Monday [1/25/2021].  The number is even larger amongst Republicans, 72 percent of whom believe that the election was rigged.  The polling firm also found that ten percent of America will never accept Biden as president.

Incompetence:
Biden administration can't say how many COVID-19 vaccines US has in reserve.  White House press secretary Jen Psaki on Monday admitted that the Biden administration does not know how many COVID-19 vaccinations the US has in reserve.  Psaki made the startling revelation during a briefing with reporters at the White House, where she was repeatedly pressed on the nation's lagging coronavirus vaccine rollout.  "Is there at least a ballpark amount that officials are aware of how much vaccine there is?" one reporter asked.  "We've been here for five days to evaluate the supply so that we can release the maximum amount while also ensuring that everyone can get the second dose on the FDA-recommended schedule," Psaki said of what President Biden had said would be his top priority, before she then tried to lay the blame on the Trump administration.

White House still can't say where COVID-19 vaccine supply stands.  White House press secretary Jen Psaki on Tuesday again lacked answers on how many doses of the coveted coronavirus vaccine the US has in reserve, one day after admitting that the Biden administration didn't know how many shots were on hand.  At her daily briefing, Psaki repeatedly danced around requests for hard numbers on the available jabs, at one point punting to a briefing by President Biden scheduled for later in the day.  "The president is going to have more of an update later this afternoon," she said, when asked point-blank how many doses are currently in the US stockpile.

This is the main reason he got the job:
Joe Biden signs whatever's put in front of him.  To begin his largely symbolic, retribution-based term of office, "President" Biden issued 17 executive orders on his first day.  There can't be any real doubt in peoples' minds that Biden didn't write or conceive any of these.  The 17 E.O.s presented to him in a painfully choreographed, ostentatiously grandiose fashion on his opening day in office were quite obviously prepared by his Progressive-minded operatives well in advance, his group of unelected, unaccountable sycophants who will control the puppet strings for as long as Biden is able to sit upright and remain awake behind the desk. [...] Looking at the list of orders, one is struck by their uniformity, their sameness:  every one of them is a pander to a voting bloc, a cave to a Progressive constituency for the sake of political correctness or to further the appearance of compassion or a supposed enlightened understanding of humanity.  Missing from all of them is any concrete action that makes America safer or more prosperous or enhances our national security or improves our position of energy independence or creates jobs or reduces the tax burden on the average wage-earner or moves to strengthen our fundamental constitutional rights of free speech, self-protection, and the right to peacefully assemble.  Not a single executive order redounds to the concrete benefit of the country as a whole.  Instead, all of them amount to nothing more than political sleight-of-hand, smoke and mirrors, activity and movement without meaning.

Biden Signs Executive Orders But There Is No Evidence He Has Any Idea What He's Signing.  What a clown show.  Joe Biden, signed a number of Executive Orders last week but there is no evidence he has any idea what he was signing.  Joe Biden signed 15 Executive Orders on Wednesday alone, his first day in office.  These orders involved providing billions of US taxpayer money 'to tackle the climate crisis', preventing discrimination 'on the basis of gender identity', and forcing federal workers to wear masks for months.  Per the official register only nine Orders have so far been recorded, all from January 20:  Biden's first Executive Orders were very unpopular popular, further distancing Biden from average Americans who already believe he stole the 2020 election based on evidence of election fraud.

Biden administration blames delay in vaccine rollout on Trump White House.  Members of the Biden administration on Sunday [1/24/2021] admitted they are behind in getting the coronavirus vaccine into the arms of Americans — but blamed the delay on the Trump White House.  Ron Klain, President Biden's nominee for White House Chief of Staff, said the process to distribute the vaccine — particularly outside of nursing homes and hospitals out into the community as a whole — "did not really exist" when the new team entered the White House.  "As every American has seen, the way in which people get the vaccine is chaotic; it's very limited.  We've seen this factor all over the country where millions of doses have been distributed.  About half of that has been given out," Klain said on NBC News' "Meet the Press."

Joe Biden Makes Not Wearing a Mask Acceptable Again.  Since the start of COVID-19 in 2020, journalists and other Democrats have taken it upon themselves to snitch on anyone (meaning Republicans) who didn't wear a mask and promptly accuse them of recklessly endangering the lives of others.  Now that Joe Biden is president, it appears that snitching is no longer cool, and not wearing a mask is acceptable so long as you're a Democrat doing it for a good reason, like "celebrating" a Democratic victory.  After Biden and his family were photographed without masks at the Lincoln Memorial on Wednesday — in violation of the federal mask mandate that he himself had just approved via executive action — White House press secretary Jen Psaki dismissed a reporter's question about Biden's refusal to follow the rules.

It's Happening Already:  Joe Biden Calls a Lid Four Days Into Presidency.  Joe Biden's campaigning from his basement and frequent lids, where Biden was kept away from the media, were a common punchline in conservative media.  "How can Joe run a campaign from his basement and hiding from the media?"  "How can he be trusted to run the country if he can't handle a campaign?"  Even when he did leave the basement he got questions about milkshakes.  There were times when Joe Biden wouldn't be seen for days.  His campaign told us that it was because of debate prep, but no one actually believed it.  But the campaign is over now.  Regardless of whether you believe Biden was legitimately elected, he has the job he applied for, the job we were told repeatedly by his campaign he was fit to handle. [...] Biden and his campaign assured the country he was perfectly fit and able to handle the duties of president, and yet Biden is already being hidden from the media four days into the job.

The Editor says...
If you reflexively believe anything a Democrat says, you're a simpleton.  "Biden and his campaign assured the country he was perfectly fit...."  Of course they were obviously lying.  If you voted for Biden anyway, you're either a chronically misinformed TV viewer, an irrational Trump hater, an irrational pro-abortion extremist, a loyal union goon who does whatever he's told, or an America-hating socialist who knew in advance that Biden wouldn't be in charge anyway.  At least not for long.  (The Big Guy is nearly 80 and Harris can't wait to take over.

Biden Just Picked A CIA Director With a 7-Year-Long Relationship with Chinese Communist Party Fronts.  Bill Burns — Joe Biden's pick to lead the Central Intelligence Agency — serves as the President of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace which has over a decade-long relationship with the China-United States Exchange Foundation and other Chinese Communist Party-linked groups.  Burns has served as President of the think tank since 2014, overseeing its involvement with the China-United States Exchange Foundation (CUSEF) which dates back to at least 2009.

The real Joe Biden.  If there's any Joe Biden pose more phony than his purported moderation, it's his purported decency.  Biden is not a decent person.  Plenty of examples to support this statement. [...] We have replaced a lying scoundrel of a president with a lying scoundrel of a president.  The difference?  One, in his present incarnation, takes mostly conservatives positions; the other, in his present incarnation, takes almost exclusively left-liberal ones.

Media Proclaim Biden 'Most Religiously Observant' President, Compare Him to the Pope.  Since Joe Biden's inauguration, the rhetorical tongue bath he's received in the press has been a sight to behold.  I'm not sure it tops Barack Obama's first few days on the job, but it's [very] close, and it's the polar opposite of the treatment Donald Trump was privy to. [...] Biden is not a Catholic in any real sense of the word.  He's a typical liberal that picks and chooses what he likes like from Christianity is some kind of buffet.  The church is more of a social club than fits one's political sensibilities than it is an organization of infallible truth in God.  Biden is free to be that kind of "Christian," but he's not free to pretend he's devout or observant when he's clearly not. [...] Biden can't even hold to the most basic of tenants of his religion.  That doesn't make it him observant.  It makes him a heretic if you want to get technical.  There is no such thing as "liberal" Christianity.

New York Times feels the wrath of angry libs after story on Biden wearing a 'luxury' watch.  Reporters for left-wing publications and other liberal critics tore into The New York Times after the paper published a story focusing on an expensive Rolex watch worn by President Joe Biden.  Reporter Alex Williams, in a story headlined, "Is That a Rolex on Biden's Wrist?" claimed that the president is "breaking from prevailing presidential tradition" by wearing a brand of watch often associated with luxury.  "At his inauguration, Mr. Biden laid his hand on the family Bible wearing a stainless steel Rolex Datejust watch with a blue dial, a model that retails for more than $7,000 and is a far cry from the Everyman timepieces that every president not named Trump has worn conspicuously in recent decades," wrote Williams.

Buyer's Remorse Sets in Over Joe Biden, But It's Much too Late for the Crying.  Elections have consequences.  That's not a new adage, but it's certainly one that's extremely relevant right now.  Joe Biden has been in office for all of four days, and he's already destroyed tens of thousands of jobs while putting hundreds of thousands of other jobs in jeopardy.  His moves in the energy sector alone promise to kill industry and raise the cost of living for everyone.  He even managed to destroy women's sports in between his moves to blow up our immigration enforcement.  The myth of Biden being a moderate took all of a few days to get blown to bits.

Biden: Oh By The Way, I Can't Do Anything About the Pandemic.  Now he tells us.  Biden and the Democrats had one messaging ace up their sleeves.  Backed by their media, they falsely claimed that President Trump had mishandled the pandemic leading to hundreds of thousands of deaths and that once they were in charge, they would get everything right.  Granted, they couldn't actually explain what they would do differently except order everyone to wear masks on federal property (before violating their own rules.)  Now, a few days later, we're down to the admission that they don't have an actual plan for fighting the coronavirus beyond pushing pork to their base.

Biden Promises Pain:  America's new placeholder president speaks.  Joseph Robinette Biden Jr., 78, was installed North Korea-style as the placeholder president of the United States of America on January 20, surrounded by 25,000 U.S. troops, along with hundreds of socially-distancing well-wishers in front of an empty National Mall populated with a vast forest of planted American flags to distract from the fact that no one was there.  How long he will last before Nancy Pelosi invokes the 25th Amendment to replace him with the predatory Obama wannabe Kamala Harris is anyone's guess.  The speech came as the Washington Post admitted hours after militia members were charged in connection with the January riot that former President Donald Trump had nothing to do with the civil disturbance that delayed our Potemkin parliament's certification of electors a few hours.  This was, of course, the riot after which Biden, statist simpleton that he is, scolded lawmakers who thought they were running for their very lives for not stopping to put face masks on.

Biden Rescinds Trump Order Banning Chinese Communist Involvement In US Power Grid.  President Biden has revoked a Trump-era executive order that sought to keep foreign countries and companies out of America's bulk power systems — principally entities associated with the Chinese Communist Party — as part of his "Executive Order on Protecting Public Health and the Environment and Restoring Science to Tackle the Climate Crisis.  The executive order, which executes key tenets of President Biden's climate change agenda, was released on the former Veep's first day in office.

Joe Biden is in a big hurry to help the Chinese.  I wonder why.

Biden removes military flags from Oval Office on first day as president.  President Joe Biden removed the U.S. military branch flags from the Oval Office on Wednesday [1/20/2021], a staple in the office during Donald Trump's term.  The missing flags were first reported by the Washington Post, who noted the absence of the flags that had been on the left side of the office near the window for years. [...] Most modern presidents have kept just two flags in the Oval Office — the American flag and the presidential seal typically displayed behind the Resolute Desk.  However, Presidents John F. Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson and Richard Nixon all kept military battle flags in the office during their terms.  President Dwight D. Eisenhower, who fought as a five-star general in World War II, displayed the Army flag alone across from his desk.

Biden Kills Up to 70,000 Jobs on First Day in Office.  President Joe Biden's first day in office may have been historic in more ways than one: he may have set a single-day record for the number of jobs killed by an American president.  Biden revoked the permit for the Keystone XL pipeline, as promised.  In so doing, he killed some 11,000 direct jobs that the pipeline's construction was to have created, and an estimated 60,000 indirect jobs in secondary, related industries.  Over 1,000 workers already on the job — mostly union workers — will be laid off as a result of the decision, even if it is litigated, as many expect it will be, in the courts.  Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) confronted Secretary of Transportation nominee Pete Buttigieg over the Keystone XL decision on Thursday morning, during Buttigieg's confirmation hearing.  If the administration was serious about infrastructure, Cruz asked, why was it killing an infrastructure project with "good, paying union jobs"?

Biden signs blank papers
Video And Images Allegedly Show Joe Biden Signing Blank Pages During His First Day In Office.  President Joe Biden signed more than a dozen executives orders on his first day in office, some of which reverse former President Trump's policies.  Biden signed a total of 15 executive orders, which his transition team announced ahead of his inauguration as part of the new administration's plan for the first 100 days in the White House. [...] But what caught the eye of the internet sleuths is the allegations that Joe Biden was signing blank pages.  [Video clip]  The mainstream media protected the newly elected President and didn't write a thing about these allegations.


Biden, the Bishops, and the New Face of Catholicism.  The Catholic Church in America has been thrust into a new and unprecedented crisis — namely the election of Joseph Biden to the presidency.  If not dealt with properly, Biden's presidency will cause serious damage to the very truth of what it means to be Catholic.  Of course, I am referring to the fact that while Biden professes the Catholic faith, he fully supports legalized abortion, same-sex "marriage" and transgenderism, and vowed that he will do all he can to advance these causes during his administration.  Nonetheless, Biden's practice of Catholicism will be on display for the whole world to observe — as he attends Mass and receives Holy Communion.

The Editor says...
If you're a leader in the Catholic Church, and you don't support legalized abortion, same-sex "marriage" and transgenderism, the you have no choice but to expel Joe Biden from your church, and do so in a very public manner, as a message to everyone else.  Otherwise you stand for nothing.  If you support Joe Biden, no matter who you are, you abet and enable the whole socialist Democrat platform.  Choose you this day whom ye will serve.*

Hail To The Thief.  On a cold, windy day with a small group of spectators watching from behind barbed wire, Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. swore another in a long series of false oaths before his motorcade passed between a long row of soldiers with their backs to him looking outward for threats.  No inauguration has been this empty in a century of American history.  And at no inauguration have the spectators been outnumbered by a raw display of armed force.  American presidents have been inaugurated in wartime and during actual national emergencies with a better turnout.  Through world wars and wars on terror, Washington D.C. has remained a national capital where the hundreds of millions of taxpayers who labor to pay for its grand edifices, free museums, and lavish lifestyles could briefly come to enjoy a little of the life lived by the ruling class in the Imperial City.  Now the ruling class has made it clear that it doesn't want peasants entering D.C.

The Mock Inauguration.  The conservative Catholic columnist John Zmirak ends his inauguration day column for The Stream with this expression of profound disgust:  ["]So by all means enjoy the mock-inauguration of a corrupt, senile hack as the fruit of ballot-box stuffing and fake COVID panic.  But remember that now we all live in a tinpot Bananas Republic.  And a disciplined, fanatically nationalist, resurgent Red China is smiling.  The virus it shipped worldwi de succeeded beyond its leaders' wildest expectations.["]  I quote Zmirak's peroration because of the openness of his loathing for the administration that began its reign on Wednesday.  Pat Buchanan, Roger Simon, Newt Gingrich, Roger Kimball, and Michael Walsh have all recently produced informative and eloquent columns underscoring the lies, deceit, and intimidation that they associate with the woke Left.  These columnists have also documented the extent of leftist control and underlined the need to resist their odious domination.

It's Clear Based on a Comparison Between President Trump's 2017 Inauguration and Biden's Inauguration that Biden Has No Support and Election Is Suspect.  Everything was different between President Biden's inauguration and any prior inauguration.  Of course, this indicates a total lack of support due to the fact the election was stolen.  A great report at BehindtheBlack.com compares the Biden inauguration to President Trump's inauguration in 2017.  The report provided the pictures [below] and says all you have to do is look at the pictures above to know Joe Biden didn't win the election legitimately.  The crowd for President Trump went all the way to the Washington Monument from the Capitol, Biden's gathering was almost nothing.

Trump's inauguration crowd vs Biden's
An empty Biden inauguration for a false victory.  For those who still think Joe Biden won his election legitimately and with popular support, you need only look at the two screen captures to the right, comparing the crowds at the previous presidential inauguration (at the top) and the crowd today at Biden's inauguration.  It is also important to note that the Trump crowd in 2017 was totally normal, comparable to every past public inauguration since such events became occasions of grand splendor.  For Democrat Joe Biden, however, the lack of a crowd is essentially unprecedented.  While past inaugurations were greeted with large enthusiastic crowds of citizens coming to celebrate the democratic and peaceful transition of power, today's event was heralded by wartime security, barbed wire fences, military checkpoints, and a military police guard of 25,000 troops.  Biden officials claimed this tight security was necessary because of the threat of violence.  I ask however:  If 80 million voters swarmed the polls on November 3rd to elect Joe Biden, why does his new administration feel so afraid of the American people?


Biden's militarized inauguration showcased Democrats' insecurity.  Nothing says, "This was a perfectly normal election, and now it's time to come together as a united nation," like having your swearing-in behind 12-foot-high razor wire surrounded by 25,000 troops whose loyalty you doubt.  That's what we witnessed at President Biden's inauguration on Wednesday [1/20/2021]:  a grim testament to the fundamental insecurity and fragility of the re-ascendant liberal elite.  Democrats no doubt hoped that the optics of this military-heavy presidential installation would convince ordinary Americans that the republic is in peril from the populist ferment that sent Donald Trump to the White House in 2016 and garnered more votes four years later than any GOP ticket, ever.  It's a peril that can only be addressed by, in James Comey's lovely phrase, "burning down" the Republican Party.  But the whole aura was less Lincoln and more bananas.  As in banana republic.  Abe Lincoln had fewer troops to defend Washington during the Civil War, even though the Confederate capital of Richmond was just down the road.

GOP Rep Files Articles Of Impeachment Against Joe Biden.  House GOP Rep. Marjorie Greene filed articles of impeachment [1/21/2021] against Joe Biden for his corrupt actions in Ukraine and allowing his son Hunter Biden to receive huge sums of money from foreign powers in exchange for political favors.  "President Joe Biden is unfit to hold the office of the Presidency," she said a statement found on her website.  "His pattern of abuse of power as President Obama's Vice President is lengthy and disturbing.  President Biden has demonstrated that he will do whatever it takes to bail out his son, Hunter, and line his family's pockets with cash from corrupt foreign energy companies," she added.

How Long Before Biden's Executive Orders Are Met With Nationwide Injunctions?  Joe Biden has been busy signing executive orders yesterday and today.  During the Trump era, Democrats streamlined a process of blocking Trump's executive orders through national injunctions.  Here's how it worked:  State Attorneys General from left-leaning states would file lawsuits in friendly courts where left-leaning and judges would promptly issue injunctions that applied to everyone.  This started with an injunction shutting down Trump's ban on entry for certain countries which became known as the "Muslim ban."  Trump revised that executive order but that too was met with a nationwide injunction.  When Trump tried to limit funds going to "sanctuary cities" that was met with a nationwide injunction.  When Trump wanted the Census to ask people if they were citizens, that got an injunction.  And so on.

British tabloids see snub in Biden's rejection of Churchill bust amid Oval Office makeover.  When reporters toured the recently redecorated Oval Office on Wednesday at the White House, they took note of the symbolic changes in scenery that have come to stand in for an incoming U.S. president's view of the nation.  President Biden's choices included a portrait of wartime President Franklin D. Roosevelt and a bust of civil rights hero Rosa Parks.

Joe Biden Is Manufacturing A Crisis At The Border.  On his first day in office, President Joe Biden signed six executive orders on immigration, proposed a sweeping amnesty bill, and ordered the Department of Homeland Security to pause deportations.  That's an awful lot of activity on an issue that he barely mentioned during the campaign.  In doing so, Biden is laying the groundwork for a new border crisis — the very thing his predecessor spent four years trying to avoid.  First, let's set the record straight on the Trump administration's achievements at the border.  While the wall was the only thing the mainstream press focused on — and which now covers 24% of the U.S.-Mexico border — Trump scored multiple victories in securing the border.

Biden Snipes at Reporter Questioning His Vaccine Plan: 'C'mon, Give Me a Break Man'.  President Joe Biden has gotten into his first dustup with the media since taking office.  It happened Thursday [1/21/2021] in the White House when the AP's Zeke Miller pressed Biden about one of the signature promises of his first 100 days — the pledge that 100 million doses of the coronavirus vaccine will be administered in that time.  "You set the goal at 100 million vaccines in the first 100 days — is that high enough?" Miller asked.  "Shouldn't we set the bar higher?  That's basically where the U.S. is right now."  Biden bristled at the question and sniped at Miller in response.  "When I announced it you all said it's not possible," Biden said.  "Come on, give me a break, man.  It's a good start, 100 million."  The president did not engage further.  He got up and left the room as an aide broke up the proceedings by urging reporters out.

Biden spokeswoman refuses to answer abortion policy questions, whips out the 'devout Catholic' card instead.  Joe Biden hates to answer 'hard' questions from the press.  So how's this for a typical Biden dodge?  A reporter from EWTN, a Catholic news broadcaster, asked on day one of Joe Biden's presidency, what his stance would be on two longstanding U.S. laws — the Hyde Amendment, which prohibits taxpayer dollars from bankrolling abortions, and the Mexico City policy, which prohibits taxpayer dollars from paying for abortions abroad.  The response?  White House press secretary, Jen Psaki, whipped out the 'Catholic' card like a cross aimed at Dracula.

Biden's Radical Agenda Ensures a Weaker, Poorer, More Divided America.  When Joe Biden becomes president on Wednesday, he won't waste any time in fanning the flames of division in the United States as he seeks to implement his far-left agenda.  All signals are flashing red, indicating that the incoming administration will govern in both radical poetry and radical prose.  That should make us worry that all his promises to govern not as a partisan, but as an American, will evaporate as the country suffers from an imminent top-down takeover imposed by liberal elites.  That means a weaker America, a poorer America, and a more divided America.

On Morning Biden Takes Over, China Posts Message Confirming He Was Its Choice.  An official Chinese government news source posted a tweet Wednesday revealing the communist regime was thrilled about President Joe Biden taking office.  Xinhua News posted an image of the U.S. Capitol with the words "Good Riddance, Donald Trump!" just hours before the end of Trump's term.  Xinhua is the state-run news agency of China, so the tweet indicates a consensus in the communist government that Biden was strongly preferred over Trump to lead China's chief global competitor.

What does this tell you?
Biden to keep Wray as FBI director: law enforcement source.  President Joe Biden has asked Christopher Wray to stay on as FBI director and he has confidence in the job Wray is doing, the White House said on Thursday [1/21/2021].

Biden Does Not Wear Mask At Lincoln Memorial After Signing Mandate Requiring Masks On Federal Land.  President Joe Biden appeared to not adhere to the federal mask mandate that he signed on Wednesday [1/20/2021] when he visited the Lincoln Memorial.  "The most pressing of his priorities are measures to combat the deadly coronavirus pandemic," The Washington Post reported.  "Biden signed executive actions to require masks on all federal grounds and asked agencies to extend moratoriums on evictions and on federal student loan payments."  The Wall Street Journal noted that the order lasts 100 days and "applies on federal property and on airlines, trains and transit systems traveling between states."  Despite his order, Biden was seen late on Wednesday night visiting the Lincoln Memorial and not wearing a mask while he stood only several feet away from [any] another person.

Biden executive order repeals Trump travel ban.  President Biden rescinded the Trump administration's travel ban against citizens from seven countries just hours after being sworn into office.  Biden on Wednesday afternoon repealed the first executive order that former President Donald Trump signed upon arriving at the White House in January 2017.  The move was one of 17 reversals aimed at altering policies Trump put into effect.  That ban on travel affected countries in northern Africa and the Middle East:  Iran, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Yemen, Somalia, and Sudan.  It was the first of three the Trump administration would set into action on the basis that those countries did not adequately vet travelers headed to the United States.

Biden to Cancel Trump's 1776 Commission That Promotes American Founding Values.  President Joe Biden plans to cancel the Trump administration's 1776 Commission, only two days after the advisory panel released a report calling for a U.S. history education centered on the nation's founding principles.  Biden, who was inaugurated on Wednesday, is expected to sign 17 executive actions, according to a press release.  A number of those actions are a direct reversal of Trump-era policies, including the travel ban on seven predominantly Muslim countries, the construction of barriers along the U.S.-Mexican border, and the 1776 Commission to promote a "patriotic education."  Through his day 1 executive order, Biden will "rescind the Trump administration's 1776 Commission," which "has sought to erase America's history of racial injustice," the Biden-Harris transition team said in a press release.

Joe Biden's Amnesty Bill Elevates Fortune 500, Migrants, but Sidelines Americans.  The amnesty plan pushed January 20 by President Joe Biden includes a few cursory mentions of American families while championing the demands of migrants, employers, and investors.  "The U.S. Citizenship Act of 2021 establishes a new system to responsibly manage and secure our border, keep our [migrant] families and [border] communities safe, and better manage migration across the Hemisphere," says the statement introducing the plan.  The plan mentions families 15 times, nearly all of which refer to foreign families.

Biden signs federal mask mandate, repeals Muslim Ban, and rejoins Paris Climate Agreement.  Joe Biden has signed his first slate of executive actions as president, erasing core aspects of Donald Trump's legacy on the coronavirus pandemic, immigration, climate change, and more with the simple stroke of a pen.  Following an afternoon of ceremonies that included a virtual parade through Washington DC, and the laying of a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia, the new administration immediately got to work at around 17.15 local time (12.15 GMT), rolling out 15 executive orders and two other action items.  "There's no time to start like today," the president said from the Oval Office's Resolute Desk.

I Watched Biden's Inauguration First-Hand:  Haunted and numb in a horribly sanitized city.  As I grabbed some coffee before heading to the Capitol Building to watch the 46th President of the United States of America take his title, the lovely lady behind the counter told me she had never seen anything like this in D.C. in her life.  And all I can say as I stand here now in the freezing cold with a handful of others is that I hope America never has to see anything like this again.  Nothing is as it seems.  It is just horrible, in every sense.  There is no one here.  And I am not saying that in the weird competitive way people talk about crowd sizes as a measure of popularity.  Remember the endless quarrel over the size of Trump's inauguration crowd versus Obama's?  What I mean is that there is literally no one here.  Even pressed up to the gates within sight of the Capitol Building there is barely a handful of Biden supporters — alongside a small gaggle of media, scratching about, trying to find something to film.

How many vice presidents have become president?  Joe Biden was inaugurated as the 46th US president on Wednesday, after previously serving as the vice president during the Obama administration.  Mr Biden, who served under Barack Obama between 2009 and 2017, is the first person in 32 years to be elected president after previously working as vice president.  The last person to work in both roles was George H W Bush, who became president after serving as vice president under Ronald Reagan for eight years.  In addition to Mr Biden and Bush, there have been 13 other US presidents who have gone on to serve as president since George Washington was America's first in 1789.

Cup of Joe.  Biden has one mandate — not to be Donald Trump.  Biden won't be able to settle for that.  The good news for Republicans is that recent Democratic presidents invariably overreach, and provoke a backlash among swing voters.  And the Georgia Senate election and the capitol riot of January 6 has emboldened the left, putting more pressure on Biden to deliver.  Biden has much less of a "mandate" (which are overrated in any case) than either Bill Clinton or Obama.  He also has much less congressional support for his mistakes.  He is Lyndon Johnson in 1965 — about to be made miserable by the far left of his own party.

Biden Calls Us Domestic Terrorists, Then Calls for Unity.  This inauguration speech lasted maybe 15 minutes, it's over, everybody's leaving.  It may be one of the least memorable inauguration speeches that there's ever been.  In this speech Biden called us domestic terrorists and then called for unity in the same breath.  And I tell you, the Dilbert cartoonist, guy named Scott Adams, had a little tweet here saying that Biden had the worst start of a presidency in history, and it hadn't even begun yet.  He wrote this yesterday.  What's Biden done?  One.  "Biden has refused to halt a divisive impeachment."  If Biden were serious about unity, which he's not, they are not.  They're not serious about unity.  The only way we're gonna have unity is if you give up.  If you surrender and acknowledge their legitimacy, if you give up and acknowledge the Washington establishment as your power, as the people that run and rule your life, if you do that, you're gonna be fine.

Biden's inaugural speech: banal, slurred, and slightly vicious.  Although Chris Wallace of Fox News declared that Biden's inaugural speech was "the best inaugural address I ever heard" in 60 years, I have to admit to being less charmed.  His slurred delivery, banal repetition, and vicious edge just didn't work for me.  What can I say?  I wasn't his target audience.  First, lest you doubt me, Chris Wallace really did go all fan girl on Biden.  Mind you, we all saw this coming when he moderated the first debate.  Wallace doesn't like Trump and, in the last year, he stopped trying to hide it:  [Tweet]  Second, let's talk about Biden's delivery.  To give him credit, he remained upright and coherent for the entire 22-minute speech.  I wasn't sure he could, so a big Bravo! for that.

Those who celebrate the Biden presidency will be disappointed.  In my moment of defeat — crushing defeat — I will make a few predictions.  Those who are opposed to the atrocity of abortion, and especially to partial-birth and even post-birth abortion, will soon see that those whom you celebrate will continue, and even expand, these barbaric practices.  Moreover, they will see the oppression of those who refuse to support these acts.  They will see the Little Sisters of the Poor bankrupted by fines and penalties.  Those who are opposed to avoidable wars will see the armed might of the United States turned against enemies who are evil people, but not threats to our nation.  They will see countless Americans sacrificed on the altars of the military-industrial complex, while their orphans and widows weep for them.  Those who believe in the sanctity of family will see the definition of family twisted and distorted until they no longer recognize the concept.  Worse yet, they will be compelled to celebrate these mutilations, because the right to not be offended trumps the right of conscience.

The Phantom Inauguration.  Phantom pain is pain that a person feels in a body part, usually a limb, that is no longer there.  That's kind of how yesterday's Presidential Inauguration felt.  The limb missing was the lack of supporters and even protestors at the event.  BOTH are part of American democracy, and both were totally restricted from the Capitol Mall.  The Inauguration is an American tradition, but regular Americans weren't allowed to be a part.  How wrong is that?  How difficult could it have been to pull off an event that allowed people with 28,000 National Guard troops in place to keep the peace?  Fireworks are great to see... in person.  On television, who cares?  But the paternalistic attitude of Biden, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser, and Speaker Nancy Pelosi urging people to stay home and then if they didn't, locking them out anyway, is very much reflective of the events that lead up to the inaugural, and the approach of this current administration.  The political elites are back, and they're all over making sure you know who is in, and who is out.  Democracy from a distance seems to be the mandate of this bunch.

Biden Signs Executive Orders Ending Trump's Travel Ban, Stopping Border Wall Construction.  President Joe Biden on Wednesday [1/20/2021] signed a series of executive orders on immigration, moving to preserve and fortify the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, to end the so-called "Muslim ban," and to stop construction on the U.S.-Mexico border wall.  Biden's executive orders are in line with campaign promises that he would overturn a number of former President Donald Trump's immigration policies on day one and come as part of a slate of 17 executive orders, memorandums and proclamations the Democrat will issue on his first day.  While the Supreme Court stopped Trump from terminating DACA, Biden's executive order directs the Secretary of Homeland Security to "take all appropriate actions under the law" to "preserve and fortify" the program.  It also calls on Congress to enact legislation providing permanent status and a path to citizenship for people who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children.

Why Does Biden Have A Bust Of An Anti Immigration Radical In The Oval Office?  The corporate press has been churning out puff pieces about the Biden administration since Election Day, and with Biden's inauguration on Wednesday, we're getting a fresh round.  One such article in the Washington Post stands out for what it omits.  The story, a hard-hitting account of how Biden has decorated the Oval Office, mentions that Biden is "nodding to segments of the Democratic Party's base via historic references," and mentions a bust of Cesar Chavez behind the Resolute Desk.  Who was Cesar Chavez?  If you ask a Democrat or a member of the press, they'll tell you he was a courageous labor leader and civil rights activist who helped organize Latino farm workers in California in the 1960s, culminating in the formation of the United Farm Workers union.  Today, he's a folk hero to the left.  What they won't tell you is that he was also a fierce opponent of illegal immigration, which he opposed because it drove down wages for American farm workers and diminished the organizing power of their unions.  He also opposed guest-workers from Mexico, and campaigned fiercely against the Bracero program, a guest-worker scheme put in place during World War II that allowed Mexican farm workers to enter the country legally for employment on American farms and ranches.

Joe Biden Signs Stack of Executive Orders to Roll Back Donald Trump Agenda.  President Joe Biden signed a stack of Executive Orders on Wednesday [1/20/2021], immediately rolling back some of former President Donald Trump's top priorities.  The president signed three executive orders in front of the press as he sat next to a stack of folders which he intended to sign afterward.  "I thought with the state of the nation today, there's no time to waste," Biden said, noting that he wanted to "get to work immediately."  There were at least 15 folders stacked on Biden's desk.  Biden signed executive orders mandating masks on federal property, ordering support for underserved communities to ensure equity and equality in health care and other areas, and an order reversing the Trump Administration's decision to withdraw from the Paris Climate Accord.

New White House Website Contact Form:  State Your Pronouns.  Now that Joe Biden has been inaugurated as president, the White House website contact form wants you to list something in addition to your name, address, phone, and email address:  your pronouns.  That's not the only change the Biden team has made in the digital world of the White House.

Biden Team Comes Up With a Replacement for the Lack of People at the Inaugural.  Joe Biden had difficulty getting anyone out of his events and campaigned mostly from his basement.  His speeches would frequently have more press than guests, looking isolated in their little white circles drawn on the ground.  So how many people was he going to be able to get out for an inauguration?  Biden's team is downplaying the number, claiming the pandemic and security concerns[.]  He's made it mostly virtual, according to reports, and reports are there are no real events the public can officially attend in person.  So instead having a live inaugural with very few people which is what likely would have resulted and which would have been embarrassing, the most popular president in history is going to try to convince us of his popularity with flags standing in for people.  The flags are supposed to represent the states that all the people would be coming from, 200,000 flags from all the 50 states.

200K flags placed on the National Mall ahead of Biden inauguration to represent missing crowd.  Nearly 200,000 flags have been placed on the National Mall ahead of President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration, signifying the tens of thousands of people who won't be able to attend this year's ceremony.  The Presidential Inaugural Committee first announced plans to install the public art display, which has flags representing all the U.S. states and territories, on Jan. 11.  The display was lit up Sunday evening [1/17/2021].

They should have done this during Biden's campaign rallies, because those crowds were absent, too.

How I Switched From Never-Trump To Never-Biden.  [Scroll down]  This is what flipped me to Trump: Question:  Hunter Biden, your son, was getting paid a lot of money to serve on the board of a Ukrainian energy company facing serious corruption charges.  You were the Vice President, running point on the Ukraine.  The Average Joe hears that and says 'that sounds fishy.'  What's your understanding of what your son was doing?  Answer:  I don't know what my son was doing.  I know he was on the board.  I found out he was on the board after he was on the board.  And that was it.  [Ok, like my mom couldn't give you at least some thumbnail sketch of what I do for a living?  Of course she can.  Hunter "worked" at Burisma for 5 years, and he has no clue at all what he did?  This is a barefaced lie.]  Re-direct Question:  Well you've had a lot of time, isn't this something you want to get to the bottom of?  Answer:  No, because I trust my son.  [This is where he lost me forever. [...] He doesn't trust his son — that's total BS.  And if he does trust his son, after 30 years of drug addiction, then he's the dumbest man on the planet.  But the American public absolutely should not be asked to trust a drug addict.  Period.  This answer is manipulative, evasive and totally dishonest.]

Hunter Biden laptop repairman posts tell-all videos.  The Wilmington, Delaware, repair shop owner who distributed Hunter Biden's laptop contents to the FBI and Trump supporters has emerged on a GoFundMe page to tell his story.  John Paul Mac Isaac has posted a series of videos — titled "The Truth" and "I am Not a Russian" and "I am Not a Hacker" — to dispel what Democrats and President Barack Obama's intelligence kingpins said about him.  "To imply that I'm a hacker and that that information was hacked has had an irreversible impact on my business and my character," Mr. Mac Isaac says in a video.

Derisive mockery:
Most Popular President In History To Be Inaugurated In Secret Behind Giant Wall Guarded By Thousands Of Soldiers.  President-elect Joe Biden will be inaugurated this week, and due to his incredible popularity with the American people, he will be inaugurated in a top-secret location behind a massive 12-foot wall guarded by 30,000 soldiers.  "The reason President-elect Biden has to do this is that he's just so incredibly popular," said Don Lemon on CNN.  "He has so many rabid fans that they might try to rush the stage as they're overcome with enthusiasm and love for Biden who is by far the most beloved candidate who has ever run for President."

The Beginning of the End of Liz Cheney's Political Career in Wyoming — She Sees It Coming.  This has been a work in progress for several years, and Liz Cheney has long been destined to leave the ranks of GOP elected officials with the Trump coalition and its policy agenda in the ascendency.  She is a NeverTrumper at heart — as are many elected GOP officials, particularly in the Senate.  But they all desired to hold on to their elected positions long enough to outlast the Trump Presidency.  That is why so many in the Senate sat by and watched Joe Biden be coronated by the media and Big Tech when everyone connected to the Senate as an institution knows Biden was one of the dumbest individuals EVER to have been a Senator and is currently well on his way to full dementia.

Biden Institute reportedly won't disclose donors even as inauguration looms.  The Biden Institute, a policy research center at the University of Delaware founded by the incoming commander-in-chief, will not disclose its donors once Joe Biden becomes president, according to a new report.  The research center was one of a number of organizations founded by the former veep after he left office in 2017 and is in the middle of a $20 million fundraising campaign trading off its famous namesake.  But unlike other foundations and groups carrying Biden's name, which were shut down in 2019 when he announced his White House bid, the Biden Institute will continue to exist and fundraise as the 78-year-old takes the Oval Office Wednesday — sparking concern that donors trying to curry favor with the administration will continue funneling money to the organization, Politico reported Monday.

Ric Grenell:  Watch out for 'Shadow President' in Biden admin and it's not Kamala.  Former acting-Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell had a telling prediction about who will be the shadow president in the incoming Biden administration.  Speaking with Fox News host Maria Bartiromo about who could be Biden's puppet master as he steps in as the nation's 46th president.  With many already speculating that Kamala Harris, as incoming vice president, may wield more power, Grenell offered up another woman tapped for the Democratic administration.  Grenell's prediction came after Bartiromo set up a question on "Sunday Morning Futures" about how influential other players will be in Biden's administration noting, in particular, that former Obama national security adviser Susan Rice has been tapped by Biden to lead the White House Domestic Policy Council.

Texas Readies for Lawsuits Against Joe Biden's Incoming Administration.  Texas is reportedly preparing for lawsuits against Joe Biden's incoming administration, the San Antonio Express-News reported Friday [1/15/2021].  During his first 100 days in office, President-elect Joe Biden has "vowed to roll back the Trump administration's immigration crackdown, push policies addressing climate change and potentially forgive student debt for thousands of Americans," the article stated.

Frightening Question — Who Will Be Running Biden's Brain?  The only thing that is certain going forward is that there is no middle ground when it comes to the way Americans view the future.  One side seems to think the Republic is headed for a happier, calmer time.  People like me think this once-great country is about to begin its death rattle. [...] The Biden nightmare administration is going to have a lot of moving parts.  None of them, however, are going to be in the new president's brain.  We will all be keeping a close eye on the background players to try and figure out which one is pulling the strings of the drooling puppet POTUS.  Guessing who will be running Grandpa Gropes' brain has turned into a political parlor game in recent weeks.  We've all been making jokes about Biden's need for a food taster whenever he's dining with his vice president.  There's no doubt an element of truth to that.  Kamala Harris hasn't been very good at hiding her ambition these last several months and she's probably already measuring the Oval Office for drapes.

Who We 'Need to Watch' as 'Shadow President' in Biden Administration:  It's Not Who You Think.  In an interview on Fox News' "Sunday Morning Futures," former acting-Director of National Intelligence Ric Grenell weighed in with host Maria Bartiromo about who he thinks will be running what in the Biden administration.  Including the presidency. [...] In less than 72 hours, everything old will be new again.  Except for Biden.  He'll be even older, this go-around.  It's a good thing Kamala Harris and Susan Rice will be there to "assist" the addled old guy.

Biden's COVID-19 'Rescue' Plan Is Based On 5 Big Lies.  Joe Biden went on prime time this week to promote his COVID-19 plans.  For a guy who promises to be honest with the public, he's off to a terrible start.  Since mainstream media fact-checkers are now on their four-year vacation, we'll set the record straight on several key claims he made.  [#1] "You will see it very clearly if you examine what the twin crises of pandemic and this sinking economy have laid bare."  Sinking economy?  Where has Biden been for the past six months?  As the Bureau of Economic Analysis has already reported, the economy grew at a stunning 33.4% in the third quarter of this year — well above anyone's expectations.  The Atlanta Fed's GDPNow pegs growth in the fourth quarter at a very strong 7.4%.

Homeland Security Committee Releases Report Outlining Biden Family Selling U.S. Policy for Personal, Financial Gain.  The Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee finalizes a report [pdf available here] with evidence of Joe and Hunter Biden conducting financial deals with foreign governments.  The report outlines how the Biden family sold access to government policy for personal financial benefit.  Considering the scale of evidence showing massive conflicts of interest, it is quite astounding that Joe Biden is currently 'president-elect.'

Georgia House Rep Will File Articles Of Impeachment Against Biden On January 21st.  While speaking to Newsmax TV, Rep Marjorie Taylor Greene said she would file articles of impeachment against Joe Biden the day after he steps into office.  "Yes I would like to announced on behalf of the American people, we have to make sure our leaders are held accountable," she began.  "We cannot have a President of the United States that is willing to abuse the power of the office of the Presidency and be easily bought off by foreign governments, Chinese and Ukrainian energy companies" [...] Joe Biden isn't even in office, yet Greene's impeachment push already stands on more solid ground than the two attempts by Democrats to impeach President Trump.

What Do We Do with a Pretend President?  The last four years for liberals have been one long temper tantrum. [...] While Trump kept his promises and built the biggest following since the Beatles, the liberals whined and worked in the shadows to steal any chance he had of being re-elected.  And they did it in our faces, blatantly, openly, proudly — with another thoroughly corrupt, establishment, unappealing oldest-and-most-senile-candidate-ever, who couldn't attract a dozen people to a rally but could manage to draw more votes than Obama the Great.  It was the stuff of novels, boring movies, and conspiracy theorists.  It was crazy, absurd, impossible, you-can't-make-this-stuff-up kind of stuff, and it was all real.

You can keep my $2,000 check if you'll just return that election you stole.
Biden Will Introduce $2 Trillion Stimulus Bill With $2,000 Individual Checks.  Aides to President-elect Biden say that he will propose another massive pandemic relief bill costing $2 trillion dollars.  It will include $2,000 individual checks for taxpayers.  Biden will outline more of the plan later on Thursday, but Senate Democrats are also talking seriously about merging pandemic relief with a completely unrelated infrastructure bill.  It's likely the total cost for both measures together will exceed $3 trillion.  Moreover, Democrats are discussing ways to use budget reconciliation to pass most of their legislation.  This would mean the filibuster would be off the table and legislation could pass by a simple majority.

Joe Biden embraces deficit spending: 'We cannot afford inaction'.  President-elect Joseph R. Biden said Thursday that there's almost no such thing as spending too much money right now given the "twin crises" of the coronavirus pandemic and the associated economic fallout.  "There's no time to waste.  We have to act, and we have to act now," Mr. Biden said in a speech in Wilmington, Delaware.  "We cannot afford inaction."  Mr. Biden unveiled additional details about the $1.9 trillion rescue package he released Thursday.  The plan is designed to combat COVID-19 and mitigate the economic damage the public health crisis has caused.

National Mall to be completely closed for Joe Biden's inauguration amid security concerns.  The National Mall in Washington, DC will be completely closed off to the public on Inauguration Day amid ongoing concerns about the prospect of violent protests.  Only security personnel and the media will be allowed to access the traditional gathering place for crowds keen to see the ceremony.  The extraordinary shutdown of the entire mall for the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden comes as the city and federal authorities act to prevent further violence following the 6 January assault on the Capitol Building.  More than 20,000 National Guard troops have been called up to protect the swearing in of the 46th president on Wednesday 20 January.  The FBI is monitoring threats ahead of the event, including the possibility of armed protests.

If the Inauguration is as popular as the typical Joe Biden campaign rally, nobody will notice!

GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene to Introduce Articles of Impeachment Against Joe Biden on January 21 Over Abuse of Power.  Freshman Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) announced on Wednesday night she will introduce articles of impeachment against Joe Biden on January 21, 2021 over his abuse of power.  Biden's son Hunter Biden is currently under investigation over the criminal contents contained on his laptop computer that was turned over to federal investigators last year.

Washington Post Says Joe Biden's Catholicism is All About "Healing," But He's Radically Pro-Abortion.  Much is being made of Joe Biden's Catholic faith in the leftist media.  Though the president-elect supports the killing of unborn babies in abortions and wants to force taxpayers to fund their deaths, he continues to promote himself as a compassionate, devout Catholic who cares about the most vulnerable.  And he relies on faithful leftist news outlets to promote this image.  On Monday [1/11/2021], the Washington Post described Biden as a "devout, churchgoing liberal" who is focused on "healing and inclusion," according to Breitbart.  "The country will soon observe for the first time a president who goes to Mass every Sunday, plus on Catholic feast days, and sprinkles conversation casually with scripture, religious hymns and references to religious history," the article states.  While the Post mentioned that many Catholics believe Biden is not a "legitimate Catholic" because of his positions on life, family and religious freedom, it dismissed these criticisms, noting that "Biden could redefine what it means to be a Catholic in good standing."

The U.S. Government is Hopelessly Corrupt.  [Scroll down]  Today, in addition to maximizing profits, the oligarchy wants to control what you read, what you think and what you are permitted to express.  There is an unholy and dangerous alliance combining the media and Big Tech with the national security state, that is, the intelligence services, the military-industrial complex and law enforcement.  It is, quite literally, an effort to abrogate the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and eliminate free speech.  The United States government has gone beyond authoritarianism towards the Chinese Communist Party model of state capitalism and totalitarianism.  And what better candidate to carry that model forward than Joe Biden, who is already compromised by his close connections with the Chinese government?  Make no mistake, Donald Trump won the 2020 Presidential election.  It was stolen, not only from him, but, more importantly, it was stolen from the American people by the well-organized and well-financed application of massive electoral fraud.

Biden:  Trump 'not above the law.  Justice serves the people — it doesn't protect the powerful'.  President-elect Joe Biden said on Twitter Saturday [1/9/2021] that President Trump is "not above the law," after the House announced it would be bringing articles of impeachment on Monday.  "Our president is not above the law," Biden wrote.  "Justice serves the people -- it doesn't protect the powerful."  But the president-elect has stopped short of calling for Trump's impeachment.

The Editor says...
Nobody has said that Mr. Trump thinks he is "above the law."  Mr. Biden knows quite well that the powerful are protected by something other than Justice.  (Why isn't Hillary Clinton in prison?  How do BLM rioters escape jail time?)  Mr. Trump is merely objecting, on behalf of ten of millions of voters, to the theft of an election.  Is that an offense worthy of impeachment?

Biden Says He Will 'Defeat the NRA' While in Office.  President-elect Joe Biden on Jan. 8 promised to "defeat the NRA," or the National Rifle Association, after being sworn into office. [...] The NRA, which has over 5 million members, seeks to protect and educate about people's Second Amendment rights.

Biden declares that he'll 'defeat the NRA' under his term in office.  In a declaration that is certain to upset throngs of gun owners, President-elect Joe Biden has declared that he'll "defeat" the National Rifle Association during his term.  In response to a tweet from former Rep. Gabby Gifford (D-Ariz.), who was one of 14 people shot in January 2011 during an event in Tucson and whose husband, Democrat Mark Kelly, just won a U.S. Senate seat, Biden's official account pledged to "defeat the NRA."

The Editor says...
Gabby Gifford was shot by a psycho, not someone from the NRA.

Joe Biden's Boosters Wrote His Prodigal Son's Entire Resume.  Hunter Biden profited from his father's political connections long before he struck questionable deals in countries where Joe Biden was undertaking diplomatic missions as vice president.  In fact, virtually all the jobs listed on his resume going back to his first position out of college, which paid a six-figure salary, came courtesy of the former six-term senator's donors, lobbyists and allies, a RealClearInvestigations examination has found.  One document reviewed by RCI reveals that a Biden associate admitted "finding employment" for Hunter Biden specifically as a special favor to his father, then a Senate leader running for president.  He secured a $1.2 million gig on Wall Street for his young son, even though it was understood he had no experience in high finance.  Many of his generous patrons, in turn, ended up with legislation and policies favorable to their businesses or investments, an RCI review of lobbying records and legislative actions taken by the elder Biden confirms.

Joe Biden to unveil COVID-19 economic relief plan worth 'trillions'.  Joe Biden is poised to launch a COVID-19 economic relief plan worth "trillions" of dollars, the president-elect announced Friday [1/8/2021].  The relief plan will target state and local governments as well as provide new support for people who have lost their jobs as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, he said.  Biden's original plan was for a bill under $1 trillion but he said on Friday that "economic research confirms that with conditions like the crisis today, especially with such low-interest rates, taking immediate action — even with deficit financing — is going to help the economy."  Biden, who plans to unveil details on Thursday, has also called for raising the minimum wage to $15 — a campaign promise — and wants to hand out $2,000 in cash payments.  Democrats tried to hand out similar relief checks in the last COVID-19 support package but were unable to get Republicans to agree to the amount.

Joe Biden likens Ted Cruz to Nazi propagandist Goebbels for helping Trump spread 'big lie' about election fraud.  In extraordinarily sharp remarks Friday, President-elect Joe Biden compared Sen. Ted Cruz to Hitler's propaganda master in the way he peddled Donald Trump's "big lie" about election fraud, though Biden stopped short of blaming Cruz for the riot by a pro-Trump mob at the Capitol as many Texas Democrats have done.  Biden called Cruz's effort "shameful."  The Texas Republican led an attempt in the Senate to block congressional certification of Biden's victory in the Electoral College, insisting that widespread doubts about the legitimacy of the election demanded an emergency investigation to allay public concerns.

Biden References Nazi Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels as he Attacks Hawley and Cruz.  78-year-old Joe Biden on Friday [1/8/2021] referenced Nazi Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels as he attacked Senators Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz.  Biden compared GOP Senators Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz to Nazis because they supported President Trump and his "election falsehoods."  Both Hawley and Cruz exercised their Constitutional right when they objected to Biden's fraudulent electors this week when Congress convened in a joint session.  Biden compared them to Goebbels and said, "It's the Big Lie.  The Big Lie."

Hunter Biden owed hundreds of thousands of dollars to IRS, email shows.  Hunter Biden, now under investigation for suspected tax fraud, owed a "substantial" amount to the IRS in 2018, apparently for 2017 and prior years when he was receiving regular income from a Ukrainian oligarch and Chinese firms tied to the Communist Party, an email shows.  The October 2018 email from his certified public accountant to Mr. Biden, son of President-elect Joseph R. Biden, showed there was miscommunication between the CPA and Hunter.  It also shows the IRS had been assessing Hunter Biden late fees for unpaid taxes.  The CPA told him "The taxes owed are substantial" and listed $600,000 in personal taxes and $204,000 owed for Owasco, Hunter Biden's D.C. law firm.

Biden Fans the Flames, Labels Trump Supporters "Domestic Terrorists".  Joe Biden fanned the flames on Thursday following Wednesday's chaos at the Capitol and labeled Trump supporters "domestic terrorists."  Not all protesters who entered the US Capitol building were Trump supporters.  According to a former FBI agent who was on the ground at the US Capitol, at least one bus load of Antifa goons infiltrated the Trump rally as part of a false flag operation.  The New York Post reported that at least two known Antifa members were spotted among the pro-Trump protesters yesterday.

An Administration Of Plagiarists:  What This Means For The Country.  [Joe] Biden has been stealing other people's work since before he became a public figure.  He infamously had to withdraw from the 1988 presidential race after it became clear that during a debate in 1987 he had lifted passages from a speech made by British Labor Party leader Neil Kinnock.  Biden also ran into trouble during law school for plagiarizing from an article from the Fordham Law Review.  Earlier this year, he was "accused of copying the words of former New Democratic Party leader Jack Layton," Canada's National Post reported in August.  "Social media was quick to point out that the words" from his closing speech at the Democratic National Convention "were eerily similar to ones found in a letter Layton wrote before he died in 2011."  Biden also plagiarized President Donald Trump's coronavirus response — more than once — according to PJ Media.

Evidence China Was Colluding with the Bidens and Providing Information on How to Defeat President Trump in the 2020 Election.  Hunter Biden dropped off his laptop at a PC repairman more than a year ago for repairs.  Hunter's laptop eventually became the property of the PC repairman due to Hunter's inability to return and pick up his computer.  Per the agreement signed by Hunter and the repairman, if Hunter didn't pick up his laptop, the laptop became the property of the PC repairman.  Hunter never picked up his laptop.  Over the past few months, experts have been analyzing Hunter's laptop.  Based on these reviews, we have reported various disgusting details of Hunter's life and the Biden family by analyzing this data.  Hunter kept a diary on the laptop.  He also backed up his text messages and kept pictures and videos of himself and prostitutes and family members doing drugs and having sex.  Yaacov Apelbaum at the Illustrated Primer today provides some more shocking findings hidden on Hunter's laptop.

Trump Oppo Research Courtesy of the CCP.  Hidden between tens of thousands of emails, IMs, documents, videos, sound recordings, and encrypted files is a collection of communications between Hunter Biden and one JiaQi.  JiaQi, AKA JaiQi Bao, AKA Jiaqi Wang, AKA Jiaqi Wang Bao, AKA Wang Bao Jiaqi, AKA Qinping Bao, AKA TianTian Bo, was Ye Jianming's US based assistant/advisor.  If you don't recall the cast of characters in this Chinese finger puzzle, Ye Jianming, was the chairman of the China Huaxin energy conglomerate and Hunter's and Jim Biden's business partner.  Ye Jianming and his US based staff worked closely with Chinese intelligence which controlled large parts of the strategy, funding, and overseas operations of CEFC and another of the Biden's Chinese joint ventures named Bohai Harvest RST (BHR).

Anyone Notice That Biden Tried To Bribe Georgia Voters With $2,000 Checks.  At a speech in Georgia on the eve of two runoff elections that will determine the control of the Senate, Joe Biden tried to woo voters to his side by promising them $2,000 in cash if they voted for the Democratic contenders.  What he didn't tell Georgians is that if they elect those two Democrats — Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock — Biden will take all that money away, and more, to pay for his radical leftist agenda.  "If you send Jon and the reverend to Washington, those $2,000 checks will go out the door, restoring hope and decency and honor for so many people who are struggling right now," Biden said during his speech.  "If you send Sens. Perdue and Loeffler back to Washington, those checks will never get there.  It's just that simple."  Has vote-buying ever been more flagrant?

Biden Threatens to Unleash the Tribe of the Mask.  Joe Biden insists that mask-wearing saves lives.  "I will be asking the American people to wear a mask for the first 100 days of my administration," he said shortly before the New Year.  "Not as a political statement, but as a patriotic duty."  Biden made mask-wearing a pillar of his presidential campaign; he knows that in the current context it is fundamentally about politics.  So why risk further dividing the electorate, many of whom believe his victory is owing to massive election fraud, by asking them to signal they've forgotten their disenfranchisement and jumped to his side by conforming to his political messaging?  Didn't his advisors realize that he might be setting himself up for early public failure when much of the country ignores his call?  Sure they did and that's the point:  Biden was issuing a threat.

The Editor says...
Joe Biden says, "I will be asking the American people to wear a mask for the first 100 days of my administration."  What's wrong with that?  [#1] He's not asking.  If you're not a Democrat, it won't be voluntary.  [#2] There is nothing magical about "the first 100 days" of a presidential term.  That's a news media cliché.  At the end of 100 days, the mask requirement will be extended on the basis of some excuse yet to be fabricated.

As a new year dawns, be very grateful you are not Joe Biden.  Let's take a moment and analyze how Joe's situation is actually a terrible one.  First, and most obviously, he will be dogged by allegations of electoral fraud.  Whether they are true or not, the perception of illegitimacy will begin to erode his authority from day one. [...] And if the fraud allegations are true, his position gets even worse.  Somebody out there in the swamp was able to coordinate a coherent election theft across multiple states and cities.  This person owns Joe and will not let him forget it.  Second, Joe's physical and mental health is in decline.  It's not unusual for presidents to age rapidly, but Joe is sick going in. [...] Third, he's surrounded by horrible people.  His wife and the Vice President will engage in some of the most vicious back room power struggles ever witnessed.  It will be no holds barred, with "Dr." Jill vehemently preventing him from resigning while Kamala circles and provokes. [...] Fifth, Joe himself is actually a pretty nasty man.  He's mean to critics, arrogant, and has a long history of behavioral improprieties that will continue to leak out.  The pressure will eventually make him erupt in public.  Even a compliant media won't be able to cover it up completely.

Gaslight with COVID: Joe Biden declares scaled down inauguration.  How's this for never letting a crisis go to waste?  Or taking one festering problem and using it to solve another?  Or just a great gaslight?  Joe Biden has called for a scaled down inauguration, supposedly in the name of containing COVID. [...] The real reason Biden is scaling down his event is that he knows that very few people would even show up.  It calls to mind the howling from the press over the size of President Trump's inaugural, claiming that it was small, while photos showed that actually, it was pretty big.  They used that argument to compare Trump unfavorably to President Obama, and now the shoe is on the other tootsie.  Obviously, Joe Biden knows he couldn't in a million years win in any such crowd contest, even if COVID were gone and the weather were 78 degrees.  When you are taking office by fraud, the crowds aren't there to be had.

Hunter Biden email associate on Justice Department transition team.  One of the Biden family's closest political and legal advisers whose name shows up in Hunter Biden's laptop computer is on President-elect Joseph R. Biden's Justice Department transition team.  Alexander S. Mackler, who served as a deputy counsel to Vice President Biden, was a prosecutor in the Delaware U.S. attorney's office in 2018 about the time the Justice Department opened an inquiry into whether Hunter Biden had cheated on his taxes.  Mr. Mackler told The Washington Times that he did not know about the case when he was a federal prosecutor.  "I learned about the investigation through Hunter Biden's press statement," he said.

Joe Biden's Inaugural Parade Canceled as Event [is] 'Reimagined'.  President-elect Joe Biden's inaugural celebration will be considerably smaller as organizers have canceled the parade that traditionally takes place after the ceremony.  In a U.S. Army email obtained by Jon Nicosia, participants were informed the event will no longer be happening.  "The Inaugural Parade has been canceled," it read.  "The Active, National Guard, Reserve, and Academy marching requirements have been deleted and are no longer needed."  The information from the Presidential Inauguration Committee (PIC) was called "definitive guidance," according to the email.

Resistance to Biden-Harris fundamental to being American.  Here's the reality: if Joe Biden gets sworn in, America is over.  To talk as if that were not the case is fantasy.  To project future GOP victories or Trump comebacks is fantasy.  To imagine that the country will continue on pretty much as before under Biden-Harris is fantasy.  The Deep State that controls them is pervasive, the corruption so thorough, the hatred for us so total, that no honest candidate will ever again hold major public office.  Masks and lock-ins at home and business shutdowns will be permanent fixtures of life, not temporary dislocations.  We will be prisoners in our own homes in our own country.  To refuse to acknowledge this is to blind yourself to what's clearly on the horizon.

Never give up.  We needn't carry on this disingenuous debate about whether Biden is a centrist, because his growing mental incapacity makes it a moot point.  As long as he is titular president, some invisible committee, one of whose central members is likely former President Barack Obama, will be orchestrating his every move.  But it will be shocking if Biden, once sworn in, remains in office very long.  In one of his unforced gaffes, he casually acknowledged having told "Barack" that, while he and Harris agree on most things, if a disagreement on moral principle arises, he will "develop some disease" and resign.  The Democratic power brokers pulling the strings in this Manchurian horror show achieved a double coup.  They managed to arrange Biden's out-of-nowhere victory over the popular — but unelectable in a general election — Bernie Sanders, and they snuck in the wildly unpopular Kamala Harris as vice presidential candidate under the Biden cover.  The liberal media conspired in this ruse, presenting Biden as an affable and honorable centrist, shielding his frailty and corruption while ignoring Harris' undeniable extremism.

Joe Biden Team Blocks Reporters from 'Chatting' During Virtual Press Conferences.  Joe Biden's transition team has disabled the chat function for virtual press conferences hosted on Zoom after several reporters publicly used the forum to urge the president-elect to take more questions from the press. [...] The move came after numerous outlets raised concerns that the Biden and his transition team were not treating all members of the press equitably.  Last month, Fox News reported that some members of the press had become "frustrated" with what they saw as the Biden team playing favorites when it came to doling out opportunities to ask questions at press events.

How to Steal an Election in Four Steps.  [Scroll down]  Three weeks before the election the New York Post broke a story about Joe Biden's son Hunter based on information from Hunter's laptop, which had been taken in for repairs.  The laptop contained videos of Hunter flirting with underage girls while smoking crack.  More damaging, former Biden family business partners Tony Bobulinski and Bevan Cooney, along with computer shop owner John Paul Mac Isaac, confirmed — with tens of thousands of primary-source documents — that Hunter Biden was receiving millions of dollars from foreign nations including US enemies for access to Joe Biden, who knew his son was trading on his name with China, Ukraine, & Kazakhstan.  The China energy company CEFC had paid $5 million to the Biden family.  Joe Biden denied knowledge of any of it despite a photograph showing him standing with their Chinese business partner Jonathan Li in a Chinese Hotel lobby.  Ten days after the photo was taken, Hunter Biden was awarded a $1 billion private equity deal financed by the Chinese govt.

Biden is Not 'President-Elect' Until Congress Counts Electoral Votes on January 6, 2021.  Let us say it all together, "Joe Biden is not the president-elect."  Americans have been bombarded with fake news about Biden's status in the 2020 presidential election.  Facebook, Twitter, CNN, MSNBC, ABC, PBS have all declared Biden the winner.  But this is far from over.  We have reported on massive election fraud from multiple sources.  The media refuses to do so, therefore we must tell the truth.  [Video clip]

Joe & Jill Biden Awkwardly Laugh As Their Confetti Popper Duds.  The ball finally dropped on a year of ruinous Democrat lockdowns with the scenes from New York's Times Square resembling something out of a post-apocalyptic science fiction movie.  Streets that are normally jam-packed with revelers partying to ring in the new year were abandoned as the nation's largest city was a virtual ghost town on the last night of a dismal 2020.  Further contributing to the dystopian appearance of the Democrats' brave new world was the trotting out of the Bidens on national television in a propaganda exercise that one would expect in North Korea or some other totalitarian country but not in America.  That millions of Americans aren't buying the results of the most fraudulent election in U.S. history is a problem for the corrupt establishment and has necessitated the need to foist lunchbucket Joe and doctorate Jill off on the public as the legitimate rulers in waiting.

CBP Chief:  Joe Biden Will Spur 'Waves' of 'Uncontrolled Mass Migration' to U.S..  President-elect Joe Biden's plan to end a series of United States cooperative asylum agreements with Central America will spur "waves" of illegal immigration to the southern border, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Chief Mark Morgan says.  As Breitbart News reported, Joe Biden is planning to tear down President Donald Trump's legal wall that he has built through U.S. agreements with Mexico, Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador that have helped stem illegal immigration at the southern border and allow federal immigration officials to quickly return border crossers to their native countries.

Biden backpedals on opening border on day one, but the damage is done.  President-elect Joe Biden may have realized he does not want a southwest border crisis in his administration, but the damage he created with his campaign promises is already done.  After irresponsibly making campaign statements that "we owe" illegal aliens amnesty and promising to end the Trump administration's "Remain in Mexico" program on day one, Biden has balked, stating he would make such changes at a slower pace than originally promised.  It's too late.  The alien smugglers have already cashed their checks.  Without even waiting for our election or heeding pandemic restrictions or the rapid increase in virus cases in the United States and Mexico, large migrant flows to our border restarted.

Joe Biden Has No Mandate.  If Joe Biden is sworn in as president of the United States in January, many Democrats and their friends in the liberal media will instantly claim that he has a mandate.  They will be mistaken.  Joe Biden does not have a mandate to effect change, and no amount of complaining from the professional left will change this fact.  The same people who will champion Biden's non-existent mandate have fought President Trump for four years.  They cast doubt on his 2016 victory, they investigated him and members of his team, they claimed he was mentally unfit for office, they called him an asset of Russia, and actively sought to ruin almost anyone who defended him.  These same people who cast doubt on the outcome of the 2016 election for four years now have the audacity to demand fealty.  The same election interference they swore stole the 2016 election for Trump is now branded a conspiracy theory if you dare question Biden's victory.

Ukrainian MP Confirms, The Bidens And Their Partners Received 16.5 Million From Burisma Through Laundering.  The Ukrainian Office of the Prosecutor General has drawn up an indictment against the owner of the Burisma Holdings energy company, ex-Ecology Minister Nikolai Zlochevsky, that contains information that the son of former US Vice President Joe Biden, Hunter, as a Burisma board member along with his partners received $16.5 million for their services, Ukrainian Verkhovna Rada MP from the ruling Servant of the People party Alexander Dubinsky told a press conference on Wednesday, citing the investigation's materials.  According to him, the money came from duplicitous criminal activity.  [Video clip]

Burisma Indictment Reveals Ex President Allegedly Obtained $7.4 Bil.  Through Fund "Close to Democratic Party".  According to a new bombshell report, an indictment of the Ukrainian gas company Burisma claims that former President Yanukovich acquired $7.4 billion and laundered the money through a fund close with the Democratic party.  Burisma was the company that former Vice President Joe Biden's son Hunter Biden worked with. [...] Over the weekend, an old video with Ukrainian politician Andrii Derkach went viral, detailing how the Biden family got rich.  [Video clip]

Joe Biden admits who he believes really won the 2020 election.  One of the things elderly people are famous for is losing their filter, that little auto-edit in the brain that stops them from saying inappropriate things.  Many lose their filter because they just don't care (and good for them).  Others, though, lose it because nature has cruelly attacked their brain function.  The problem is exceptionally bad when the person wasn't too bright or too filtered to begin with.  And that brings us to Joe Biden, who just announced that Kamala Harris is the real President-elect. [...] Deep down he's always known, which is why his mouth keeps slipping past his brain's filter to tell the world who's really taking over the White House should Biden manage to get in:  Kamala Harris.  In September, Biden referred to a "Harris Biden administration":  [Video clip]  In early December, Biden explained that, if Harris disagreed with him, he'd fake an illness and hand her the White House:  [Video clip]  And then, yesterday, Biden did it again.

And now, a word from the Abortion Party candidate:
Joe Biden: 'We're on This Earth to Care for One Another'.  Joe and Jill Biden recorded a videotaped message to wish people "Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays," in which the explained why they stayed away from their family this Christmas.  "Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays.  Jill and I wish you and your family peace, joy, health and happiness this season," Biden said in the message.

If you care so much about others, why did you steal the 2020 election through massive voter fraud?

Trump's gambit.  I have some very liberal friends who are absolutely giddy about Joe Biden's potential presidency. [...] Actually, I am profoundly sad for Joe.  At his advanced age and obviously suffering declining cognitive skills, Joe should be sitting on a beach in Hawaii, under an umbrella, drinking a piña colada and enjoying the final chapter of his life.  Instead, the Democrats and the media dragged Joe across the finish line and think that he will occupy the Oval Office in January.  I think their endgame is flawed because Trump's king is still on the board, and the game isn't over.  Across America, seventy-four million God-fearing, gun-loving, Bible-reading deplorables are praying for a miracle.  At this point, a Deus ex machina (an unexpected power or event saving a seemingly hopeless situation) is what is desperately needed to save our Republic.

Man Who Repaired Hunter Biden's Laptop Sues Twitter for Defamation.  Computer repairman John Paul Mac Isaac provided the explosive information in The New York Post's expose on Hunter Biden after he gave Hunter's hard drive to Rudy Giuliani.  Twitter stopped users from sharing the Post's articles because it came from hacked material.  Now Mac Isaac has sued Twitter for defamation and wants $500 million in damages along with a public retraction.  In the lawsuit, Mac Isaac noted he talked to the FBI and Mr. Robert Costello, an attorney for Giuliani, between July 2019 and October 2020.  The Post received the hard drive from Hunter's computer from Giuliani, not Mac Isaac.  Therefore, Mac Isaac did not know the Post had the hard drive.  He did not want the Post to print his name or give anyone permission to report his name.

Ukraine press conference explicitly ties Hunter and Joe Biden to corruption.  A video from a press conference in Ukraine is going viral.  It is the follow-up to a video press conference that Ukraine released over a year ago, in which Members of the Ukraine Parliament demanded that President Zelensky and President Trump investigate billions of dollars of corruption in Ukraine that is tied to the U.S. The newly released video is meant to provide documentary and eyewitness information about the corruption — and the Biden family figures prominently in the story.  The video is long — over an hour — and not all of it involves the Biden family.  This post quotes those portions of the press conference that address Biden family corruption.  The gist of it is that, while Democrats obsess about Trump's purported criminality, despite the absence of any evidence, their chosen standard-bearer is extraordinarily corrupt.  Indeed, I would argue that Biden is one of the most corrupt politicians ever in America.

Now What?  This coming year will be when the reality of a dementia patient in the White House becomes more than just a joke.  Biden is only lucid for a few hours a day, which has been fine as his handlers ran his campaign and now his transition.  How is that going to work when he must perform the duties of the office?  No one seems to have thought about that, and in fairness, the plan very well may be to push him aside in the spring.  A few months ago, Pelosi was babbling about a process to remove the president and everyone assumed she meant Trump.  At the time, they were sure they were going to win the election, so most likely she meant Biden.  Next year may bring the first example of democratic regicide.

Biden Flees Podium without Answering Questions After Delivering Remarks in Delaware.  78-year-old Joe Biden on Monday delivered remarks from Wilmington, Delaware.  Livestream of Biden's remarks had only 4,500 viewers but we're expected to believe he got more than 81 million votes in the 2020 election.  Biden bashed President Trump as he read from the teleprompter.  "We're going to have to regain the trust and confidence of a world that has begun to find ways to work around us or work without us," Biden said.  "We have to be able to innovate, to reimagine our defenses against growing threats in new realms."

Man who repaired Hunter Biden's laptop sues Twitter for saying that contents that he released were 'hacked'.  John Paul Mac Isaac, the Wilmington, Delaware owner of a now-closed computer repair shop, is suing Twitter for half a billion dollars for implying that he is a "hacker." [...] My sympathies are entirely with Mr. Mac Isaac, and I hope a jury can be found in South Florida that will give him a fair hearing.  But I do worry that establishing a link between Twitter's use of the term hacking and the negative consequences he suffered will be difficult.

Computer repairman who made Hunter Biden hard-drive contents public sues Twitter for $500 million after moderators 'labeled him a hacker'.  A computer repair shop owner who Hunter Biden handed his laptops over to in April 2019 is suing Twitter for defamation, claiming moderators labeled him a hacker.  John Paul Mac Isaac is seeking $500 million in damages from Twitter after The New York Post's story about Biden, obtained from the 50-year-old's laptop, was labeled as potentially coming from hacked material.  Facebook and Twitter both restricted viewing of the Post's story, and Twitter pointed to its ban on posting 'hacked materials' as an explanation.

Lobbyist brother of top Biden aide reportedly lands big contracts.  The lobbyist brother of a top adviser to President-elect Joe Biden has been raking in the clients ever since Biden's win was declared, according to reports — sparking conflict-of-interest concerns in the new White House inner circle.  Jeff Ricchetti, the brother of longtime Biden aide Steve Ricchetti, picked up a lobbying contract with Amazon Web Services in November, less than a week after Biden was declared the winner of the presidential election, CNBC reported Saturday [12/26/2020].  Two days later, Jeff Ricchetti registered as a lobbyist for Evofem Biosciences, pushing for contraceptive coverage in federal health-care plans.

At this point, Joe Biden has been "declared the winner" only by the news media, not by the Congress.

Trump: The American David.  A recent poll by McLaughlin & Associates now shows that 4.6% of the Joe Biden's supporters would have voted differently had they known about Biden family corruption.  The media ignored and censored two separate Senate committee reports in September, documenting the details of large payments from numerous foreign government-related entities to Hunter Biden and holding companies under his control, with most fund transfers coming from relationships that originated while Pops Joe served as vice president in the Obama administration.  What this says about the power brokers behind Biden who knew everything about him is that they prefer a weak and compromised leader, who is easier to control and influence so as to assure that their interests and goals are carried out.  They own Joe Biden.  No wonder we are where we are.

Mollie Hemingway:  By Trump Standards, Biden Should Already Be Investigated For Obstruction Of Justice.  Federalist Senior Editor Mollie Hemingway highlighted another set of elitist double standards about the Biden scandals Wednesday on Fox News, arguing if President-elect Joe Biden were President Donald Trump, a special counsel probe would already be underway.  "If we applied the same standards to Joe Biden that we applied to Donald Trump, Joe Biden himself would already have a special counsel on him for obstruction of justice," Hemingway said.  "Joe Biden is making false claims about the nature of the investigation into his son.  He said that it was foul play, that the investigation was foul play.  These were the standards that were used to put a special counsel that was very damaging against the Trump administration that went on for several years."

Biden's Team Complains:  We Want Trump's White House Twitter Account Followers.  The Biden-Harris transition team is complaining because Twitter decided the followers of White House Twitter accounts, the number of which exploded from 26 million followers at the end of the Obama administration to roughly 60 million by the end of the Trump administration, will not be turned over to the Biden team.  On Tuesday, Biden's digital director tweeted, "In 2016, the Trump admin absorbed all of President Obama's Twitter followers on @POTUS and on @WhiteHouse — at Team 44's urging.  In 2020, Twitter has informed us that as of right now the Biden administration will have to start from zero."

Biden Throwing a Conniption That Twitter Wouldn't Transfer Trump's Followers to Him.  Joe Biden, who had difficulty having anyone come to any of his events, whose "rallies" may have had those poor little social distancing circles, just not a lot of supporters, is now really upset that Twitter wouldn't just turn over to him the presidential Twitter account with President Donald Trump's massive number of followers.  Twitter has decided that while they are turning over the @POTUS and @WhiteHouse accounts to Biden, the account followers will be wiped to zero, that followers will be notified of the change of account and given the choice if they want to continue to follow.

Why an Editor's Open Letter to Journalists Got Totally Wrecked in a Single Twitter Thread.  [Scroll down]  Journalists were rightfully mocked for the last four years for being outright terrible at their jobs.  The bias was always there.  During the Trump administration, it reached absurd new heights.  There wasn't even a half-[hearted] attempt at hiding it.  Journalists should get a pat on the back for doing their job.  What job?  Burying the shoddy and reportedly corrupt dealings of the Biden family, how Hunter Biden got rich off his daddy's name because he's a perpetual screw-up, how he didn't report $400,000 from an unethical arrangement in Ukraine, and how he's under investigation for tax fraud.  Oh, and Joe is involved too.  Some of these deals, like the one in China, were being hashed out when Joe was still VP under Obama.  It's enough of a story that 17 percent of Biden voters said they wouldn't have voted for Corrupt Joe in the 2020 election if they had known about this pile of dirty laundry.

Here Is How Hunter Biden Allegedly Traded On Family Name, Influence To Make Millions.  Just days after outgoing AG William Barr said there is "no need" to appoint a special counsel to investigate Hunter Biden despite revelations about a federal criminal investigation into Biden's business conduct, we're seeing the latest "scoop" about the younger Biden's alleged misdeeds.  In a lengthy investigative report, the WSJ has reportedly confirmed that the younger Biden traded on his purported influence and family ties during his business dealings in Ukraine and China (along with his conduct at home in his personal life, where he has seemingly careened from one disaster to the next) to enrich himself — and, importantly, his family as well.  Importantly, in the story, WSJ explicitly notes that "none of the Journal's reporting found that Joe Biden was involved in his son's activities, which mostly took place around the time Obama's second term was wrapping up."  Our initial reaction:  Of course it wouldn't.

Joe Biden:  "Public Colleges and Universities Are Going to be Tuition-Free For Families Earning Less Than $125,000".  78-year-old Joe Biden on Wednesday [12/23/2020] announced his 'nominee' for Secretary of Education.  As usual, virtually no one watched Joe Biden's press conference on Wednesday but we're supposed to believe he got 81 million votes.

How Should a Christian Support Trump?  [Scroll down]  If you're unbothered by the prospect of a man with whom the Chinese communists and Iranian mullahs both are happy, you deserve a Biden presidency.  If you sympathize with the absurd notion that Basement Joe, who has sniffed more females' hair than a San Francisco hairdresser, is the more decent option, be aware that he's already promised both the homosexual lobby and Planned Parenthood that each is going to be his Number 1 priority.  Perhaps you're unaware the abortion crowd fully intends to legalize killing babies up to and even after the moment of birth and force taxpayers to pay for it, and that homosexual "rights" advocates are joined by the God-hating "secular" lobby in openly calling on Biden to persecute people of faith.  Elections have consequences, as did Trump's and Obama's, big time.  If you are bothered in the least by the idea that a national election may have been rigged, what makes you think that if they get away with it on this scale right in your face that they will ever allow fair and free elections again?

Biden says he Still believes his son's laptop revelations were Russian disinformation then calls Fox News reporter who asked question 'a one horse pony'.  President-elect Joe Biden said he still believed that the stories about son Hunter Biden's laptop were a Russian disinformation scheme, as he mocked the Fox News Channel reporter who asked about it.  Fox's Peter Doocy yelled up to Biden after he took questions from more favorable outlets onstage at Wilmington's Queen theater Tuesday: 'Do you still think that the stories from the fall about your son is Russian disinformation and a smear campaign, like you said?'  'Yes, yes, yes,' Biden answered on his way out.  'God love ya man, you're a one horse pony,' he told Doocy.

Maybe Jill thinks she's a doctor.
Joe Biden Gets Covid-19 Vaccine — Then Awkwardly Mumbles, 'Jill Loves Shots I've Had So Many'.  78-year-old Joe Biden on Monday received his first does of the Covid-19 vaccine by a nurse practitioner at ChristianaCare hospital in Delaware.  Biden thanked the scientists and frontline workers and begrudgingly gave the Trump Administration "some credit" for Operation Warp Speed.  "I'm doing this to demonstrate that people should be prepared when it's available to take the vaccine.  There's nothing to worry about," Biden said after previously trashing Trump and casting doubt on the safety of a vaccine.  Then things got awkward.  Biden looked over at his  handler  wife Jill and said she "loves shots" — "I know.  I've had so many."

The Smartest Guy Joe Knows Is Pretty Dumb.  Throughout the scandals of the last few years, former Vice President Joe Biden has repeatedly heaped praise on his troubled son Hunter.  In several interviews, including one this week, he has referred to Hunter as the "smartest guy" he knows.  To make such a statement, it is clear that Joe Biden needs a much larger circle of acquaintances.  Is Joe Biden even qualified to identify a smart person?  In fact, how smart is Joe Biden?  The record shows he is the antithesis of smart.  From his many asinine comments to his long record of questionable associations to his multiple episodes of outright plagiarism, Joe Biden is certainly not smart.  Since Joe Biden is not Mensa material, how about his son Hunter?  C'mon man, this is about as easy as it gets.  Hunter has a sordid personal life and has created a mess of professional life.

Catholic bishops cower as Biden assembles pro-abortion administration.  For decades, Christians have supported candidates who have assured us they believe what we believe.  But a Joe Biden administration, for Christians and Catholics in particular, is more than dangerous to our faith — it will be outright hostile.  Even before the Electoral College certified the votes of each state, Joe Biden started putting his Cabinet together.  He already demonstrated his willingness to blatantly go against the core tenet of Catholicism that holds abortion to be a grave evil when he chose Kamala Harris as his running mate.  Harris's record on supporting abortion is unprecedented, which was already revealed during the campaign.  That's only the beginning.

Bunches Of Planes Dragging Anti-Biden Sky Messages Across Florida.  [Here is an example.]


Biden spokeswoman says AG candidates won't be asked about Hunter Biden.  President-elect Joe Biden will not discuss with attorney general candidates a federal investigation into his son Hunter Biden, incoming White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Sunday [12/20/2020].  "He will not be discussing an investigation of his son with any attorney general candidates. ... he will not be discussing it with anyone he is considering for the role and he will not be discussing it with a future attorney general," Psaki told host Chris Wallace on "Fox News Sunday."  Wallace asked Psaki about the US attorney for Delaware's investigation into Hunter Biden's tax affairs and whether the former vice president would allow it to run its course.

Hunter Biden and China:  A timeline of his business ties to the Far East.  For at least seven years, many when his father was vice president, Hunter Biden pursued a lucrative deal to run an investment firm founded by millions of dollars from a Chinese partnership.  Joe Biden claims he never spoke with Hunter about his dealings, and never profited from any group his family set up, but e-mails and text messages found on Hunter Biden's old laptop hard drive — first published by The Post — show "the big guy" being referenced repeatedly.  A federal investigation into Hunter is ongoing, and Republicans vow to continue to probe how Hunter profited off his father's name, and what President-elect Biden knew about it.  "I'm not going to turn a blind eye on this," Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.) said last week.  "We'll keep digging."

Hunter Biden associate texts hint at push to 'get Joe involved,' make it look like 'truly family business'.  Hunter Biden's former business associates were hinting at a push to "get Joe involved" in a joint venture with Chinese Energy Company CEFC and make the venture appear as a "truly family business" to the Chinese, according to text messages obtained and reviewed by Fox News.  In text messages dating back to 2017, Hunter's now-ex-associates James Gilliar and Tony Bobulinski discussed a breakdown of the joint venture with CEFC, the "stakes" and appeared to hint at discussions about getting the now-president-elect involved.

Joe Biden's niece Caroline gets no jail time after DUI guilty plea.  Another Biden walks free.  Joe Biden's niece Caroline Biden pleaded guilty to DUI on Dec. 3 — and was sentenced to 20 days to six months of "confinement," Pennsylvania court records said.  But the small print shows Biden, 33, won't see a day behind bars after she negotiated a plea deal with the Montgomery County district attorney.  Instead of jail, she got five-plus months of probation, with 20 days of rehab in January counted toward her sentence.  The walk-free plea continues a long Biden family tradition of avoiding jail time.  A [New York] Post investigation in July found at least eight other busts of Bidens resulted in wrist slaps.

COVID Panic To Rule Biden's First 100 Days.  Team Biden will wring every last infected droplet out of the COVID-19 panic for at least the first 100 days of a Biden Administration.  Democrats and the Biden campaign shamelessly exploited the health crisis to damage President Trump, push for an unprecedented volume of absentee ballots that overwhelmingly favored the Democratic presidential nominee, and leveraged "social distancing" dogma to keep Republican poll watchers far away from mischievous Democratic canvassers in several key cities.  Why give up the political gift that keeps on giving?  The incoming president only has hosted a smattering of public appearances while successfully avoiding tough questions about investigations into his son.  A frail Biden coughed repeatedly during another "acceptance" speech Monday night and had to be guided out by his wife; the media dutifully reported later that Biden has a minor cold.  The coronavirus cover-up of Biden's obvious lack of focus, energy, stamina, and patience — he snaps at any reporter who dares to even mildly confront the next leader of the free world with legitimate questions — will continue into the foreseeable future.

'Dr. Jill Biden' Sure Flies with the U.S.-Hating, Stalinist Castro Regime.  "'Dr. Jill Biden' sounds and feels fraudulent, not to say a touch comic. [...] When she honored this Stalinist, terror-sponsoring [Castro] regime with a promotional visit as second lady, the KGB-trained Russia-colluders all gleefully referred to her as "Dr."  And why not?  She gleefully starred in and helped produce a tourism commercial to boost the America-hating, terror-sponsoring regime's income.  To wit:  "Dr. Jill Biden in Cuba to study Cuba's achievements in health and education," read a headline in Stalinist Cuba's media, Oct. 6, 2016.  More interestingly, during Jill Biden's co-production with communist apparatchiks of her Potemkin tourism commercial to boost the income of Castro's military and secret police who majority own Cuba's tourism industry — her frequent escort was a Cuban lady named Josefina Vidal.  The KGB-trained Vidal was expelled from the U.S. in Oct. 2003 for her suspected operational links to Cuban spy Ana Belen Montes, responsible for the deepest and most damaging penetration of the U.S. Department of Defense in recent history.

Jill Biden and Her Less Than Stellar Dissertation.  Jill Biden is what some in military circles might call a "ring knocker." My son-in-law told me what that term meant when he was a senior at the Naval Academy.  In short, it refers to service academy seniors who bang their huge class rings on desks, mainly to intimidate underclassmen, especially plebes. [...] Now doesn't that sound like someone who's been in the news lately?  Perhaps a designated First-Lady-To-Be, hmm?  Like Jill Biden, who refers to herself as "Dr. Jill Biden," and insists that all Americans do so as well?  Because we're not worthy of such a brilliant FLOTUS!  But as we've learned recently, Mrs. Biden (yes, I said it!) holds a doctorate in education.  An Ed.D, not an MD.  She is not a medical doctor, even though she fooled the geniuses on "The View."  One of the cackling hens, Whoopi Goldberg, in fact, called her a "hell of a doctor" and thought she would make a great surgeon general.  However, the truth finally came out, leading one former instructor at Northwestern University in Chicago to advise Jill Biden to stop the puffery.

Sticking with Trump to the Bitter (or Glorious) End.  A nation presided over by a sorry puppet who has been put in place by a political, technological and wealthy elite employing counterfeit means will become progressively dysfunctional.  Secondly, an administration that owes its ascendancy to obvious electoral chicanery will look and sound like a banana republic, a wavering shadow of its former self, and an international laughing stock to be taken advantage of by its adversaries and competitors.  Finally, the idea of secession will enter the public domain.  Rush Limbaugh worries that America is "trending toward secession."  Texas GOP chairman Allen West suggested that law-abiding states should "bond together and form a union of states that will abide by the Constitution."  Though he asserted "I never say anything about secession," the implication is certainly present.  Texit is in the wind.  As Rep. Kyle Biedermann (R-Fredericksburg) said, "I am committing to file legislation this session that will allow a referendum to give Texans a vote for the State of Texas to reassert its status as an independent nation."

Jill Biden:  I Worked Really Hard on My Misspelled, Mathematically-Incorrect, Dissertation.  In the victimhood olympics, some players start off more privileged than others, by being born a minority, or choosing to become a sexual minority.  While others have nothing going for them except being the mediocre trophy wife of a creepy old man.  So they've gotta play the hand that they were dealt.  Just ask Dr. Jill, who is still whining about not being called Dr for her degree in education which she uses to teach community college students. [...] More to the point, critics have correctly pointed out that Dr. Jill's dissertation strings along a bunch of cliches.  It's a typical enough student paper in a lot of settings, but it's not a dissertation.  And its author insisting that she worked hard on it is sad if true, and makes her insistence on being called "Dr" even more pathetic.

Jill Biden's Garbage Dissertation, Explained.  To call Jill Biden's dissertation thin gruel is an insult to gruel.  Whatever meager substance puddled in Bob Cratchit's miserable bowl at mealtime was a bountiful feast compared with this paper.  I wrote yesterday about the problems with this capstone project, the foundation of her Ed.D. degree and of the insistence of so many in recent days that we must call her "Dr."  Mrs. Biden's only original research consists of interviews with two — that's right, two — ex-students and a few colleagues at Delaware Technical Community College, where she used to teach, plus the results of a vacuous questionnaire she wrote that was returned by about 150 people who worked or studied there.  Oh, and she also called two nearby community colleges seeking interviews about their retention rates.  One of them wouldn't answer the question; the other wouldn't assign anyone to speak to her at all.  Telling us about this misadventure serves no academic purpose, though it does fill up four pages of her generously spaced paper.

Jill Biden Whines During Interview After People Make Fun Of Her "Doctorate" Degree.  During an interview with "comedian" Stephen Colbert, former Second Lady Jill Biden spoke out about everyone making fun of her for her "doctorate" degree.  "You once said in your own memoir, 'The role I always felt most at home in is Dr. Biden,'" Colbert started.  "Now some people have recently taken upon themselves to question that title of yours.  Do you have any reaction to those people?"  The Daily Wire reports:  "Colbert was apparently referencing a Saturday op-ed by Joseph Epstein in The Wall Street Journal titled "Is There a Doctor in the White House?  Not if You Need an M.D." Epstein, a former lecturer at Northwestern University who served as editor of The American Scholar from 1975 to 1997, argued that Jill Biden, who obtained a doctorate in education from the University of Delaware in 2007, should drop the title."

The Editor says...
As long as Doctor Jill Biden insists on being called Doctor, the derisive mockery will continue.  This is apparently an effort by the dishonest news media to make us believe Mrs. Biden a medical doctor.  They do this because they think you're stupid.  If you teach college-level classes, you can reasonably insist that your students call you "Doctor."  Everywhere else, it is a sign of insecurity.  If you have credentials, everybody knows.

Oblivious Biden.  What kind of man must Joe Biden be to accept being illegitimately put into the Oval Office?  We've all seen the clips.  Nearly every recent Joe Biden public appearance has been an embarrassment.  The media called his garbled statements 'gaffes,' as if they were innocent, harmless mistakes, but many have suggested far worse age-related cognitive failures.  We experienced embarrassment with him, and pitied a man clearly past his prime.  What seemed most prominent about Joe Biden, other than his mental decline, was his obsession with one singular goal — to be president of the United States. [...] While the election is still contested, and more evidence of widespread Democrat fraud surfaces daily, Biden speaks and behaves as if he were the clear and universally accepted victor.  Looking back, one may ask, 'Why didn't Biden run in 2016 as the heir-apparent after eight years as vice president?'  He claims it was due to the death of his son, but here's the far more likely answer:  Because Obama lacked confidence in him.

Both the Left and Right Have a Biden Problem.  Joe Biden will never be my president, period.  This election was stolen for him even if he is the only one who does not know it.  He is a despicable man who has been one of the most divisive politicians of the last half century. [...] Americans know this election was stolen.  And just in case we did not realize how little respect they have for us, Democrats boasted continuously of their millenarian machinations as they absconded with the election for all to see. [...] The left is now faced with Joe Biden, President Select, an addlepated buffoon standing on home plate in an adult diaper absolutely convinced Americans believe he hit a home run.

Joe Biden Is Not President Elect.  You won't hear it said anywhere else, but until the joint session of Congress and the Senate meet on January 6, Joe Biden is not the president elect.  [Video clip]

Fighting Biden.  Joe Biden is a lie wrapped in a sham hiding inside a moron — he is an epigone of a president at best.  Yet, once he takes that oath, we should do everything in our power to make certain he serves out his term while opposing him every day and, in every way, including continuous mostly peaceful protest.  Why should "mostly peaceful" be the sole dominion of Antifa?  You see, Kamala Harris is much more complicated than Joe but also much more dangerous.  She is a political creation who believes at any given moment whatever is the passion of that moment.  She was once the "law and order" district attorney of San Francisco jailing young black men for smoking pot.  Now she is a radical leftist, critical theory adherent, and hopeful dictator.

Joe Biden Will Serve at the Pleasure of Obama.  I really think Obama's running the show.  Obama's been running the Democrat show since 2016.  He ran the operation against Trump.  He ran the Russia sting.  He ran the Russian coup.  He ran everything, and he's now running this.  And as long as Biden accomplishes or does what Obama wants, then he'll be fine.  But I do believe that it will be up to Obama, Biden's fate.  We'll see.

Newly Released Texts Show Hunter Biden Associate Asked to 'Get Joe Involved' in China Deal to Make it Look Like 'Truly Family Business'.  Newly released text messages obtained by Fox News show Hunter Biden's ex-associate James Gilliar asking to 'get Joe [Biden] involved' in a China deal to make it look like 'truly a family business.'  Joe Biden is a national security threat. [...] A May 2017 text message previously released revealed Tony Bobulinski was warned by his business partner James Gilliar not to mention Joe Biden was involved.  Tony Bobulinski was brought into Sinohawk Holdings to be CEO by James Gilliar and Hunter Biden — James Gilliar made sure to warn Bobulinski never to mention Joe Biden being involved because they were paranoid.  "Don't mention Joe being involved, it's only when u are face to face, I know u know that but they are paranoid."  Joe Biden continues to claim his son Hunter did nothing wrong while at the same time asserting he had no idea what Hunter was up to with his overseas business deals.

Joe Biden's looming disaster.  [Joe Biden's] two central problems are that he has set the wrong expectations and that his policies will not work in the current domestic and international political, economic and military environment.  The only message in his "I'm-not-Trump" political campaign was that President Trump made a mess of domestic and foreign policy and that Biden would fix all of that.  The deadly trap is that Trump did very well on many key measures and Biden inevitably will do much worse, creating a failed Biden presidency.  His Day One issue of COVID-19 already is a loser.  Researchers developed vaccines in record time, under Trump's direction, and are rolling them out.  The complex issue of distribution now goes to Biden.

What Joe Biden is hiding.  We all know he is hiding something.  [Web site]

Might we have a Republican president — in 2023?  Yes, and that's 2023, not 2024.  Here's how.  It all starts with Joe Biden's truculently delinquent and pathological son, Hunter.  You know, the guy who was and apparently still is a cocaine addict and was drummed out of the Navy.  The deadbeat father who denied paternity and avoided support obligations to the mother whom he met at a strip joint.  But those are the least of his troubles.  Hunter's "business" is to monetize his dad's political position.  He did so in the Ukraine where Hunter was paid millions by an oil and gas company, though he probably doesn't even pump his own gas.  The payors of these millions thanked him for introductions to dad.  The Bidens admit that the son's payments from the Ukraine were because he was Joe's son — they couldn't possibly deny that — but contend that the payments did not affect U.S. policy toward the Ukraine.  In other words, they say they accepted the payola but it's OK because they cheated the Ukrainians out of getting anything for it.

Biden Should Beware of Nemesis.  Once the last of the other Democratic primary candidates dropped out and Biden was nominated, all prior negative media stories about his apparent cognitive decline and his family's financial entanglements disappeared.  From April 2020 on, a virtual news blackout surrounded Biden.  His rare interviews were scripted.  Biden communiques were teleprompted.  Press conferences were either nonexistent or revolved around his favorite milkshake or his socks.  Mentions of Hunter Biden's business dealings in China and Ukraine were taboo.  It was sinful to reference reports of a Hunter Biden email allegedly detailing a 10 percent distribution of such revenue to the "Big Guy" — presumably Joe Biden.  Unlike Donald Trump, Joe Biden never really campaigned.  After the primaries, he outsourced his fall 2020 campaign to subordinates and pet journalists to attack Trump.

Hunter Biden Was Due 'Significant' Pay From China Firm Starting In 2019; Requested $10 Million In 2017: Reports.  Multiple new emails allegedly from Hunter Biden, son of Joe Biden, reveal financial ties to firms inside of communist China.  The alleged emails have surfaced after it was revealed last week that Hunter Biden is under federal criminal investigation over his business dealings, particularly in China.  Hunter Biden was informed in 2018 by one of his business partners that he would start to receive "significant" payments the following year from a firm in China that was co-owned by the Bank of China, which is owned by the communist Chinese government.

'Dr.' Jill Biden?  Critics of Op-Ed Often Omitted the Title.  Last week an opinion piece in the Wall Street Journal by Joseph Epstein provoked a heated debate over the use of the honorific "Dr." by future first lady Jill Biden when the writer suggested that only medical doctors should use the courtesy title, rather than anyone with a doctorate.  The op-ed drew considerable backlash, with widespread support expressed across news outlets and among the punditry for her use of the prefix.  Yet, a close examination of media coverage of Jill Biden over the course of this year suggests that for all their outrage, some of the very media outlets most critical of the op-ed have themselves consistently omitted her preferred title.  The debate over whether all doctorate holders should be referred to as "Dr." isn't new.  In 2018 some news outlets, including NPR, declined to use the prefix in referring to Brett Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford.  In the words of NPR's standards editor at the time, "the idea is that for most listeners a 'Dr.' practices medicine."

Scrutiny of her doctoral dissertation will make 'Dr. Jill Biden' wish she had stuck with 'Mrs. Biden'.  The real scandal around Joe Biden's second wife wanting to be called "Dr. Jill Biden" is not that people like Whoopi Goldberg incorrectly assume that she is a physician and recommend her for the position of surgeon general.  The real scandal is that the title is handed out to people who can't produce scholarly work, as exemplified by the pathetic "dissertation/executive position paper" that Jill Biden "submitted to the Faculty of the University of Delaware in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Doctor of Education with a major in Educational Leadership."  The problems with the 33,000-word document begin on the title page with the label "dissertation/executive position paper." Why the hedging with two labels?

Bombshell Email Shows Hunter Biden Requesting $10 Million From China, "Best Wishes" From "Entire Biden Family".  According to a new bombshell report dropped by Fox News, former Vice President Joe Biden's son Hunter Biden urged CEFC Chairman Ye Jianming to "quickly" send a $10 million wire transfer to "properly fund and operate" a business venture.  The email from Hunter Biden shows exactly how the Biden family leveraged their name considering Hunter Biden made sure to note that he was extending his "best wishes" from the "entire Biden family."

Biden says 'I'm confident' Hunter did nothing wrong, amid federal probe into 'tax affairs'.  President-elect Biden on Wednesday [12/16/2020] directly addressed questions about a federal investigation into his son, Hunter Biden, for the first time, saying "I'm confident" that he did nothing wrong.  Hunter Biden in a statement released last week by the transition organization for Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris acknowledged that the U.S. Attorney's Office in Delaware is "investigating my tax affairs."  He said that he takes "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 investigations could touch on sprawling range of foreign dealings.  Concerns about Hunter Biden gained broader attention last week after multiple outlets reported that he is being investigated in connection to his taxes and overseas business with China and other countries in a federal inquiry that was opened as far back as 2018. President-elect Joe Biden's campaign, along with many in the media, had dismissed the Hunter Biden laptop story and other allegations as being part of a Russian disinformation operation, even though Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe said that "there is no intelligence that supports that ... Hunter Biden's laptop is part of some Russian disinformation campaign."  It was reported by CNN last week that "investigators appear to be focused on Hunter Biden's business activities connected to China" and "at least one of the matters investigators have examined is a 2017 gift of a 2.8 carat diamond" that Biden received from Chinese tycoon Ye Jianming in 2017.  Politico reported that "investigators in Delaware and Washington were ... probing potential money laundering and Hunter Biden's foreign ties."

Jill Biden's Doctorate Is Garbage Because Her Dissertation Is Garbage.  You can tell someone is smarting from an inferiority complex when he insists on being addressed as "Dr." on the basis of holding an academic doctorate rather than being a physician.  Ph.D. holders who have genuine accomplishments don't make you call them "Doctor," which is why you never hear about "Dr. Paul Krugman" and "Dr. George Will."  None of the professors I knew at Yale, even the ones who were eminent in their fields, insisted on the title, and I think most of them would have scoffed if someone had addressed them as "Dr." [...] Insisting on being called "Doctor" when you don't heal people is, among most holders of doctorates, seen as a gauche, silly, cringey ego trip.  Consider "Dr." Jill Biden, who doesn't even hold a Ph.D. but rather a lesser Ed.D., something of a joke in the academic world.  President-elect Joe Biden once explained that his wife sought the degree purely for status reasons:  "She said, 'I was so sick of the mail coming to Sen. and Mrs. Biden.  I wanted to get mail addressed to Dr. and Sen. Biden.'  That's the real reason she got her doctorate," Joe Biden has said.

Jill Biden Wants Us to Call Her 'Dr.' So Here's a Look at Her Ed.D 'Position Paper' to Receive That Doctorate.  Media, Democrats, and Jill Biden's team have all been insistent upon calling Jill Biden "Dr."  She received an Ed.D not a Ph.D and is not a medical doctor.  Now, it's common for people who have doctorates to use them in the academic setting, although usually they don't in the rest of their lives.  That's generally considered pretentious.  But I frankly didn't care whether she used the term or not until they went after an academic, Joseph Epstein, who mentioned the normal standard and how, while she has the doctorate, she really shouldn't use it in the rest of her life.  Now, whether you agree with him or not, that's his opinion and he's entitled to it and it's the general opinion of a lot of academia.  But they went after the Wall Street Journal for printing it and Epstein himself, trying to shut down that opinion, calling him "misogynist."  The point?  To teach the lesson that if you say anything critical or questioning, you will face a mob going after you or your job.

Joe Biden's Call for Unity and Healing Begins Self-Destructing.  Ever since Election Day, the calls for unity and healing from Democratic leaders, the Biden campaign, and the mainstream media (but I repeat myself) have been rolling in fast and furious.  We must now all join together in the spirit of bipartisanship in order to move our nation beyond the deep political divisions that exploded over the past four years, they have stated in so many words.  Joe Biden, in particular, has made frequent statements to this effect, claiming he's ready to start building bridges and forging ahead in an effort to get things done, yada yada.  Considering Biden and his surrogates have spent the last year and a half demonizing President Trump and his supporters as racists and "chumps", it's not too terribly surprising that not many Republicans have found the calls sincere enough to step up to the plate and oblige him beyond mouthing off platitudes about how we must respect the Electoral College.

Joe Biden's Inaugural Committee: 'Stay Home,' 'Limit Gatherings During the Inauguration'.  Joe Biden's Inaugural Committee does not want supporters to travel to Washington, D.C., in January for the swearing in of the 46th president.  The Presidential Inaugural Committee (PIC) consulted "with medical experts advising President-elect Joe Biden" and announced "initial protocols to protect public health during the inauguration," an event that takes place outside on the Capitol lawn.  Biden's advisors said in a press release that the "historic ceremony" will include "vigorous health and safety protocols," and "honors and resembled sacred American traditions while keeping Americans safe and preventing the spread of COVID-19 [Chinese coronavirus]."

I wish they were more concerned about keeping us free than keeping us safe.

Hunter Biden email says he must amend taxes after failing to report $400G in income from Burisma.  Now that the 2020 election has come and gone and the American people, have cast their votes, there's a sudden flow of information on Hunter Biden, the son of former Vice President Joe Biden.  Information that would not have been favorable to the Democratic nominee ahead of Election Day.  Information almost guaranteed to have been blacked out by the corrupt media establishment running interference for Biden, just as they blacked out reports of the candidate's ties to his son's nefarious business dealings.

Time To Heel.  President-Select, Trojan dementia patient, Joe Biden, has been attempting to utter the words his handlers put on his teleprompter on the rare occasions when they let him out of the basement. "Time to Heal" has been the slogan his PR flunkies have told him to yammer about regarding their fake plan to reunite the country after surviving four years of bad orange man.  The propaganda machine media gush with praise for all Biden's Deep State apparatchik cabinet selections as Biden's handlers attempt to engineer a 3rd Obama term.  Biden is the clueless "nice guy" dupe who mouths words of reconciliation, unity and healing, while his fabricating financier fascist controllers implement their Great Reset plan in conjunction with their global elite co-conspirators.  CNN conducts an "interview" with 3rd grade level questions, designed to comfort the ignorant masses.  Not one challenging question about his bagman Hunter or how he got 80 million votes without campaigning, putting forth his agenda or leaving his basement.  CNN and the rest of the propaganda corporate media are just a division of the Democrat party, along with Facebook, Twitter, Google, Soros, Bloomberg, CIA, FBI, and the rest of the Deep State empire.

Now we know for sure that our judges and justices are abject cowards.  [Scroll down]  Obviously, Biden is not well, he is declining quickly.  And now that the family's illegal financial dealings around the world are coming to light, their allegiance and submission to China for example.  Biden may have to resign (if inaugurated) within months.  If that happens and the absurdly unqualified Harris becomes president, the America we knew and loved will be over.  The US will be just another rough and brutal place run by some really awful people drunk on power.

Big Tech, MSM attempt to snuff out Hunter Biden investigation.  The mainstream media is being exposed for attempting to kill the New York Post's article on Hunter Biden.  Following the release of the article, mainstream news outlets began pumping out stories alleging the documents used in the article were apart of a Russian disinformation campaign or just not credible.  The majority of the media's reporting on Hunter Biden's shady business dealings attempted to dismiss the allegations.  At the same time, Big Tech media companies like Twitter and Facebook tried to limit the breadth of the stories reach online.  Twitter went as far as to suspend the New York Post's account, which is one of America's most read newspapers.  This week, the nation learned that, in fact, there is an active investigation underway into Hunter Biden's taxes.  While little is known about the case, the subject matter of the investigation, which has been going on since 2018, could prove some of the facts in the New York Post's article to be valid.

Only Then.  [Scroll down]  Now, they ask us to believe in an election, the results of which are so outlandish as to ask us to believe that Joe Biden, a person who could not stay in two previous presidential primary races; once for unethical behavior and once because he suffered a brain aneurysm, garnered more votes than Barack Obama at the height of his popularity.  Joe could not win more counties in 2020 than Hillary Clinton did in 2016.  The mathematical possibilities of his miraculous last-minute surge of votes (overnight and in the darkness) to beat Trump were one in a quadrillion, a number so vast not even congress can spend in that quantity yet.

Michigan's presidential electors vote for Biden, Harris at Capitol.  Michigan's 16 presidential electors cast their ballots Monday afternoon [12/14/2020] in the state Capitol for Democratic President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris following a bitterly contentious election process.  As the electors convened and organized, about a dozen Republicans attempted to enter the Capitol building as the Democratic electors were casting their votes inside.  They said they were GOP electors there to cast their vote for president.  Michigan State Police officers denied them entrance.

President Trump Threatens to 'Declassify Everything' Related to the Democrats.  President Donald Trump is still on the warpath.  On Saturday, he posted a tweet saying that he intends to "declassify everything" regarding the Hunter Biden investigation.  The president expressed his anger at the fact that Attorney General William Barr kept secret information regarding a Justice Department probe into Hunter Biden's business dealings and finances.  Last week, Hunter Biden, the son of former Vice President Joe Biden, publicly acknowledged that he is being investigated over issues concerning his taxes and income from Burisma, a Ukrainian oil and gas company.  The Wall Street Journal reported on Friday [12/11/2020] that Barr has known about the investigation into Hunter Biden since the spring, but worked to keep the information secret from the public.

Feds Issue Subpoena Against Hunter Biden For Key Records in Shady Business Dealings.  According to a new report from the Associated Press, a new subpoena was issued from the U.S. attorney's office in Delaware against former Vice President Joe Biden's son Hunter Biden over records relating to Burisma Holdings and Chinese companies.  This news comes just days after we discovered that Joe Biden's brother Jim Biden was also under federal investigation for a now-bankrupt healthcare firm.

Bill Barr directly intervened to keep the Hunter Biden probe secret before the election.  Attorney General Bill Barr used the force of his office to instruct prosecutors investigating Hunter Biden not to take any steps that might cause the probe to be publicly revealed in the run-up to the election.  The directive, reported in the Wall Street Journal, was in keeping with existing Justice Department policy against taking investigatory steps close to an election that might interfere with it.  Barr and his team took steps to 'insulate' the investigations, according to the report, even as President Donald Trump repeatedly demanded a probe of his political rival's son.

Feds Show They're Serious:  They Just Took a Big Step Against Hunter Biden.  Hunter Biden tried to get a jump on the media stories by describing the investigation against him before the media did.  When CNN contacted the Biden transition team to ask about the story they were planning to run about Hunter, the team used that as an opportunity to put them off suggest they were going to respond, but then put out their own press release spinning the story.  According to Hunter in a statement released by the transition team and run on their website, the federal prosecutors were looking into him for his "tax affairs."  Joe Biden has denied that he was involved with his government position in any way with his son's business.  But here he was not realizing the basics conflict, that he was using tax payer dollars and transition resources to defend his son and his son was using those taxpayer dollars to not tell us the full story.

Anyone surprised?
DOJ probe into Hunter Biden reportedly extends beyond Burisma.  A subpoena issued to Hunter Biden seeks information about his work with Ukrainian energy company Burisma, his dealings in China as well as documents from more than two dozen entities, according to a report on Sunday [12/13/2020].  President-elect Joe Biden's son revealed last week that the Justice Department is investigating his taxes while he held a lucrative seat on Burisma's board, but the new information indicates the probe into Hunter will examine a wide swath of his international pursuits, the Associated Press reported, citing a person familiar with the case.  It's unclear, the report said, whether Hunter's work on Burisma's board while his father served as vice president in the Obama administration is the main focus of the probe or whether the Justice Department is just collecting information about his sources of income.

Obama lets the cat out of the bag:  He's got plans to make Joe Biden his stooge.  Joe Biden, who couldn't even get President Obama's endorsement during the primaries, now has word that Obama may well use him as his marionette stooge for what's in fact a third Obama term.  He's not even trying to hide it. [...] Everyone suspected that this was the real idea, though, Biden serving as a placeholder for a third Obama term while Obama called the shots.  RedState points out that this is exactly what Vladimir Putin did, when election laws prohibited him from seeking an additional term, so he placed a obedient loyalist, Dmitri Medvedev, into the presidential slot until he could get himself back into power.  The same thing happened in Argentina as the Kirchner gang, husband and wife, traded off with each other for the nation's top job, leaving the country in shambles.

Biden's Catholic faith will be on full display as the first churchgoing president in decades.  Joe Biden rarely misses Sunday Mass.  So it was notable when the President-elect didn't attend church on November 29, the first Sunday of Advent and the beginning of the season when Roman Catholics like Biden prepare for Christmas.  Biden's absence was understandable, since just a day earlier he had broken his foot.  But the following weekend, Biden was back at his home parish in Wilmington, Delaware — St. Joseph on the Brandywine — for Saturday's vigil Mass.  He was there again on Tuesday on the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception, a holy day of obligation.

The Editor says...
[#1]  Anyone who serves as a leader in the Abortion Party is hardly a devout Catholic.  [#2] I read lots of news articles every day, and if Joe Biden attended church any time in the last six months, I haven't heard about it.  He hid in his basement almost every day.  If he had gone to church, we all would have heard about it.  [#3] Wasn't Barack H. Obama a regular church-goer — at least at Jeremiah Wright's TUCC?  After that, the only times Barack H. Obama went to church were those occasions when he was the featured speaker.  [#4] When a Republican attends church services, the Left howls about the "separation of church and state."

Feds Issue Subpoena Against Hunter Biden For Key Records in Shady Business Dealings.  According to a new report from the Associated Press, a new subpoena was issued from the U.S. attorney's office in Delaware against former Vice President Joe Biden's son Hunter Biden over records relating to Burisma Holdings and Chinese companies.  This news comes just days after we discovered that Joe Biden's brother Jim Biden was also under federal investigation for a now-bankrupt healthcare firm.

This investigation will probably come to a halt on January 20, 2021.

Attorneys for Biden family refuse to cooperate in probe, Catherine Herridge reports.  Unlike President Donald Trump's family and associates, Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden's family and associates refuse to cooperate with Senate investigators, according to the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs.  On Saturday [12/12/2020] investigative reporter Catherine Herridge released a press release from the committee detailing all the "outstanding requests to the Biden family and their associates" that have thus far gone unanswered.

Eric Swalwell, Hunter Biden and the DNCCP.  Low-hanging fruit.  When enemies of our country look to infiltrate and/or compromise someone to their side, that's exactly what they reach for.  No point in going to the top — the likelihood of getting to them, let alone turning them, is minimal.  But the easy targets, the ambitious or troubled, far enough away from the goal so as to not be noticed, but possibly on their way, are ripe for the pickings.  Those wishing this country ill need only an opportunity; an in.  With the same goals, only different tactics, the Chinese Communists went fishing for and caught Eric Swalwell and Hunter Biden.  Honestly, is anyone surprised that the Communist Chinese would seek and find welcoming arms in the Democratic Party?  Infiltrating the Republican Party would require the ability to pass off as someone who loves the country.  Even the best of actors can't stay in character forever.  A better approach to gain access to a nation's secrets is to find kindred spirits in the most like-minded political movement you can.  In the case of the Chinese Communist Party, Democrats were the obvious and easy choice.

Hunter Biden failed to disclose $400K in Burisma payments in 2014 tax return.  Hunter Biden failed to disclose $400,000 in payments he received from the Ukrainian energy company Burisma on his tax returns according to yet more revelations contained on his Delaware laptop, according to NBC News.  "In 2014 you joined the Burisma board and we still need to amend your 2014 returns to reflect the unreported Burisma income," wrote Hunter Biden's business partner Eric Schwerin in a 2017 email, NBC reported.  In 2014, Hunter Biden's father — President-elect Joe Biden — was serving as vice president of the United States.  Hunter Biden sat on the board of Burisma from 2014 to 2019.

Report: Bill Barr Knew of Criminal Investigations into Biden Family in Spring and Worked to Keep It Quiet.  A report within the Wall Street Journal does not necessarily come as a surprise; however, it also does little to provide solace for the lack of action by Attorney General Bill "Bondo" Barr.  According to the article AG Barr has known about at least two investigations related to the Biden family since early spring 2020, and he worked to keep them quiet.

So, Hunter Biden's Laptop Was Real After All, Huh?  Hunter Biden, an admitted drug abuser, abandoned one of his laptops at a repair shop less than five miles from his father's home.  The laptop is real.  The information on it is real.  The trouble Hunter finds himself in is real.  The NY Post's story was censored on Twitter, and the outlet's Twitter account was suspended.  A lot of other Twitter users (including yours truly) were suspended for talking about the story.  And now the Delaware computer repairman who stepped forward with hard evidence of Hunter Biden's misdeeds has been driven into hiding.

Exclusive:  Hunter Biden Called His Father And Chinese Business Partner 'Office Mates' In September 2017 Email.  Hunter Biden called his father, President-elect Joe Biden, and his Chinese business partner "office mates" in a Sept. 21, 2017, email to the general manager of his former Washington, D.C. office building.  "[P]lease have keys made available for new office mates," Hunter Biden wrote in the email before listing Joe Biden, his stepmother Jill Biden, his uncle Jim Biden and Gongwen Dong, who he identified as the "emissary" for the chairman of the now-bankrupt Chinese energy conglomerate CEFC.  Hunter Biden also requested that a sign be made for his office stating "The Biden Foundation" and "Hudson West (CEFC US)."

New Hunter Biden Email Further Implicates Joe Biden.  The Daily Caller is running an exclusive this evening which reveals a new email sent by Hunter Biden that further implicates his father.  While the elder Biden has steadfastly asserted he knew nothing about his son's overseas dealings, ample evidence has previously emerged saying that's almost certainly not true.  Now, this new email adds another piece to the puzzle. [...] This is a big deal because this means Joe Biden must have been aware of Gongwen Dong's presence and purpose.  They were quite literally sharing an office space according to this email from Hunter Biden.

Memo: Kamala Harris Implicated in Hunter Biden's China Energy Company Scheme.  In a story that received next to zero coverage in the mainstream media, an internal email/memo from Democrat presidential hopeful Joe Biden's brother, Jim Biden, to the hierarchy of SinoHawk Holdings, the partnership between the CEFC China Energy Company (CEFC) and the Biden family, cataloged a rich list of "key contacts" that included then-US Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), and other high-level Democrats and Progressives.  The memo was sent from Jim Biden to James Gilliar, Tony Bobulinski, Hunter Biden, and Rob Walker with the subject line, "Phase One Domestic Contacts/Project."

What Happens When a Communist Regime Penetrates Our Government.  [Scroll down]  So what will the Biden administration do about China?  One place to start making a good impression would be the full and frank disclosure of the $22 million that anonymous Chinese individuals or interests donated to the University of Pennsylvania's Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement.  During the Trump years, the so-called Penn Biden Center served as a kind of holding center for once and future Biden aides, including Tony Blinken, Biden's pick to be the next secretary of state.  So what's up with that $22 million?  Who gave it?  Why did they give it?  What are they getting for it?  If and when those questions are answered, there will be more questions to be asked.  A lot more.  Because this is Cold War II with China — and the stakes couldn't be higher.

Attorneys For Hunter Biden and James Biden Refusing to Cooperate with Senate Committees.  Senators Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Ron Johnson (R-WI) on Saturday said attorneys for Hunter Biden and James Biden are refusing to cooperate with senate committees.  "After issuing our report on September 23 on the conflicts of interest and foreign financial entanglements of the Biden family, Senator Grassley and I have continued to seek information and testimony from the individuals involved," Johnson said referring to the bombshell senate report on Burisma corruption.  "Attorneys for Hunter and James Biden have refused to cooperate with the committees.  It should be noted that, collectively, President Trump's family and associates produced documents and agreed to appear at interviews with a number of congressional committees," the GOP senators said in a statement.

Joe Biden's 12 worst gaffes of all time.  Throughout his 47 years in public life, our presumptive president-elect has had a habit of letting his glib tongue run ahead of his brain.  Just last week, Biden raised eyebrows with a garbled explanation of how he and his soon-to-be veep, Kamala Harris, would resolve a serious disagreement.  "I will develop some disease and say I have to resign," he told CNN, as Harris shook her head in bewilderment.  Many supporters see Biden's verbal stumbles as endearing — but his chronic case of foot-in-mouth often reveals his ornery side.  Take the incident last December when he exploded at an Iowa Democrat who challenged him with some impertinent questions.

Email to Hunter Biden raises fresh questions about his tax dealings.  Hunter Biden's former business partner sent him an email in 2017 saying he did not disclose on his tax returns $400,000 in income from the Ukrainian natural gas company where he sat on the board, according to a copy of the email obtained by NBC News.  The message from Eric Schwerin, then president of Rosemont Seneca Partners, says Hunter Biden would need to "amend" his 2014 returns to reflect the "unreported" income, according to the copy of the email.  "In 2014 you joined the Burisma board and we still need to amend your 2014 returns to reflect the unreported Burisma income," says the email dated Jan. 16, 2017.

CNN's April Ryan To Other Journalists:  Stop Exposing Leaks On Biden.  CNN analyst and American Urban Radio Networks White House correspondent April Ryan wants the name of the person who taped a meeting between Joe Biden and civil rights leaders this week and then leaked the tape to the press.  According to Ms. Ryan, that person has some 'splainin' to do.  Her message is clear — during the Biden administration, there must be no unfavorable reporting provided by the use of leaks to the press.  Ryan was tweeting about the leaked tape that brought to light Biden's frustration about the defund the police message coming from so many Democrats, especially the far-left progressive wing of the party.  He told the civil rights leaders that the defund the police message allowed Republicans to "beat the living hell out of us" in down-ballot races.  He was pointing out that though he won the presidential election, Republicans flipped seats in the House and increased their numbers in state and local offices.  The blue tsunami that we were promised in the November election never happened.

Feds Show They're Serious:  They Just Took a Big Step Against Hunter Biden.  According to the Associated Press, the investigation by the U.S. Attorney's Office in Delaware just dropped a subpoena on Hunter and they're not just interested in tax records.  They want records related to more than two dozen entities including Burisma Holdings as well as information related to his Chinese business dealings and "other financial transactions."  Imagine all the things that will turn up and the information that can come out.  It's going to be a hot time for Joe Biden pretty soon.  Hunter Biden has come under question because he was named to the board of Burisma in 2014 when they were trying to improve their image and their head was under investigation.  That of course was also when his father Joe was still Vice President.

Gun control first for Biden executive orders.  Joe Biden plans to move quickly against guns, adding the issue to his list of first executive orders, according to his top policy aide.  Stef Feldman, the national policy director of Biden's presidential campaign, included the Democrat's gun plan in a list of initial executive actions set to be unleashed after Inauguration Day.  Speaking in a Zoom briefing hosted by Georgetown University's Institute of Politics and Public Service, she said that Biden is planning to "make big, bold changes through executive action, not just on policing and climate like we talked about previously, but in healthcare and education on gun violence, on a range of issues."  She added that "there's really a lot you can do through guidance and executive action."

Report: Joe Biden's Brother Under Federal Investigation for Role in Bankrupt Healthcare Firm.  Joe Biden's younger brother, James, is purportedly under federal investigation by the United States Attorney in the Western District of Pennsylvania for his role in a now-bankrupt healthcare firm.  On Wednesday [12/9/2020], Politico reported that federal prosecutors "have been asking about James Biden's dealings" with Americore Health, a company that operates rural hospitals.

Report: Hunter Biden Investigation Linked to Chinese Company in Laptop Emails.  CNN's Simon Prokupecz reported Wednesday that an investigation into Hunter Biden's taxes includes a gift given to him in 2017 by Ye Jianming, the founder of the CEFC China Energy Co.  Emails reported by the New York Post from Hunter Biden's laptop in October — which CNN deliberately ignored — suggested that Hunter Biden was involved in a joint venture with CEFC to create a new company in which former Vice President Joe Biden may have been assigned a 10% ownership stake.

4 Points About the Federal Prosecutor Investigating Hunter Biden.  The Justice Department's investigation of Hunter Biden's financial dealings is being led by a federal prosecutor who was appointed by President Donald Trump with the endorsement of two Democratic senators.  Former Vice President Joe Biden's son announced Wednesday that he had just learned he is under investigation by the U.S. Attorney's Office in Delaware for tax-related issues.  David C. Weiss is U.S. attorney for the district of Delaware.  His investigation, which began in late 2018, includes Hunter Biden's Chinese business dealings, The Associated Press reported.  Should Joe Biden become president Jan. 20, it's not clear what the future holds for Weiss, since most incoming administrations appoint new U.S. attorneys.

Game On:  Tom Cotton Comes Out Swinging, Calls for Hunter Biden Special Counsel.  The news on Hunter Biden is not good, or at least it's not good if your name is Joe Biden.  After years of various reports, it has been confirmed that the son of the (trigger warning for Chris Wallace) former vice president is under federal investigation.  And while Hunter and his dad tried to spin this as a routine tax matter, the real story is that they are looking into money laundering and other serious crimes.  Given that, and given that Joe Biden is probably going to be the next president (at least for a little while), the next question becomes how exactly this investigation should be handled.

Biden Refuses to Discuss Family's Legal Troubles: 'I'm Proud of My Son'.  Joe Biden is refusing to discuss the legal troubles of his son amid revelations that the Department of Justice is investigating the younger Biden's "tax affairs."  Biden, who has been declared president-elect by numerous media outlets, was asked after a press conference on Friday [12/11/2020] in Wilmington, Delaware, if his son, Hunter, "committed a crime."  The question was in regards to Hunter Biden's recent admission that he had been informed by the United States Attorney of Delaware that there was an open investigation into his "tax affairs."

Great news:  It's also okay to report on James Biden's corruption, too.  Some of us haven't shied away from the Biden Inc graft over the last year, including some legit media outlets — Politico, for instance, which had been rather vocal about it during the primaries.  Now that the general election has concluded, however, perhaps we'll start to hear more about Hunter, James, and maybe even Frank.  Today, however, it's Biden's brother James that has the graft hot seat.  The newly reported investigation into Hunter also includes Uncle Jim.

Will Anyone Face Any Consequences For Gaslighting Americans On The Hunter Biden Story?  So now that it is overwhelmingly evident the New York Post's initial Hunter and Jim Biden story wasn't based on hacked material, wasn't Russian misinformation, is clearly something people deserved to know before voting, and that big tech and America's corporate media tried to make sure that didn't happen — and that once again rather than alter their behavior or ask for forgiveness, they're going to instead attempt to gaslight you about all of it — I have a number of questions.  First, when did Joe Biden first learn that his repeated claims the stories about his son and his brother were Fake News — or in his phrasing, debunked, smears, and the like — were in fact false?  When was he briefed on this exactly, and by whom?  And why, given that every effort was made to distance Hunter from the campaign, did the defensive announcement come from the Transition instead of just from Hunter himself if Joe, as he has always claimed, has nothing to do with this?

Why They Hate Trump.  [Scroll down]  Even the Court can't defend us against the corruption of the political elite.  They believe they have a right to practice graft and influence peddling, and to reap the benefits of drugs, fine liquor, call girls, and the rest.  Eliot Spitzer and "Client 9" aren't the only politicians caught up in prostitution — Hunter Biden may be worse.  As progressives see it, this behavior is just something to smirk about and look the other way.  They think it's provincial to think there's anything wrong with Hunter's behavior.  Will Hunter Biden's behavior change if his father becomes president?

Confirmed: Barr kept Hunter Biden probe a secret until after Election Day.  Someone on Twitter said last night that this is the most ethical thing Barr has done as Attorney General and he's probably going to get fired for it.  Which would make this administration two for two in dispatching AGs for the crime of behaving ethically.  I'll be a little surprised if he survives the day.  Trump was already thinking of firing him.  Now he has confirmation from the WSJ that Barr could have revealed that Hunter Biden was under federal investigation at any time before the election — and chose not to.

Daily Beast:  Isn't it odd that the Hunter Biden money-laundering probe went "largely unnoticed" until now?  "Largely unnoticed," purposely ignored, or actively suppressed?  The Daily Beast's reporting team on Hunter Biden's legal woes sound somewhat surprised that the FBI's money-laundering probe didn't get noticed before the election: [...] The word "unnoticed" is doing an awful lot of heavy lifting in this sentence.  Not only did it get noticed, it got reported by Sinclair TV's James Rosen a few days before the election.  A large number of online outlets — mostly conservative — picked up on Rosen's report about the FBI's criminal probe of Hunter Biden, including us.  Rosen reported that Tony Bobulinski had cooperated in the probe, and that its focus was money laundering.

Hunter Biden probe followed string of suspicious foreign bank transfers.  Hunter Biden, a son of presumptive President-elect Joseph R. Biden, capitalized on a steady influx of suspicious multimillion-dollar foreign bank transfers before the Justice Department opened a criminal investigation in 2018 into whether he dodged federal taxes.  Senate Republicans laid out his network of shady beneficiaries, including oligarchs in Moscow and Ukraine and a tycoon linked to the Chinese Communist Party in Beijing, from 2014 to 2017.  Their Sept. 18 report was based on suspicious activity reports filed with the Treasury Department's financial crimes enforcement network.  Lending institutions contact the agency when they suspect money laundering and/or tax evasion.  Transactions like Hunter Biden's "can trigger such an investigation," said Brett L. Tolman, a former U.S. attorney for Utah.  "Typically it starts as money laundering or tax [evasion] but can expand."

Here Are All The Times Joe Biden Falsely Claimed Stories About Hunter Were Debunked.  For months, former Vice President Joe Biden has vehemently denied that any evidence exists that his son, Hunter, was involved in criminal activity or wrongdoing.  These denials now look like dishonesty after the Biden-Harris transition team released a statement Wednesday [12/9/2020] acknowledging that Hunter is indeed under investigation by the Department of Justice for potential tax crimes.  "I learned yesterday for the first time that the U.S. Attorney's Office in Delaware advised my legal counsel, also yesterday, that they are investigating my tax affairs," Hunter wrote in the statement.  This news, as Federalist Editor Mollie Hemingway pointed out, is not actually new and was reported before the election, but was purposefully suppressed by gatekeepers like Facebook, Twitter, and corporate media outlets who ignored the reporting on Hunter Biden's affairs.

My Prediction:  If Joe Biden Is Sworn in, the Investigation of Hunter Biden Will Lead to Joe's Resignation.  There is no "happy ending" to this story for the Biden family.  Joe Biden has wanted to be President for 45 years — maybe more — and if he makes it to January 21, 2021, he may actually realize that dream.  The revelation yesterday by Hunter Biden that his attorney has been advised by the US Attorney's Office in Delaware that he is under investigation offers little in the way of specifics, but an informed view of this acknowledgment reveals some practical issues that are of profound significance — in ways that are not good for Joe Biden.  Such notification likely came by way of a "Target Letter", which is the kind of "overt step" that would have been against DOJ Policy during the self-imposed "quiet period" leading up to the election.  First, Hunter Biden's public statement claims that his taxes are under investigation.  That is likely true, but the fact that the investigation is located in the US Attorney's Office for Delaware means this is not just a tax case.

Federal authorities conducting criminal probe into hospital business tied to Biden's brother:  Report.  Federal authorities are reportedly conducting a criminal investigation into a hospital business that has ties to President-elect Joe Biden's younger brother.  According to a report by Politico, the FBI has asked questions about James Biden's role in a healthcare business that was raided earlier this year by federal authorities, though details on the investigation remain unclear.  The FBI seized boxes of documents from Americore Health hospital in Ellwood City, Pennsylvania, but there was no indication the raid was due to any actions related to James Biden, who hasn't been accused of criminal wrongdoing.  Americore's owner has battled its own legal problems and allegations of mismanagement.

Justice Department's interest in Hunter Biden covered more than taxes.  The federal investigation into President-elect Joe Biden's son Hunter has been more extensive than a statement from Hunter Biden indicates, according to a person with firsthand knowledge of the investigation.  On Wednesday [12/9/2020], Hunter Biden said he had been contacted about a tax investigation out of the U.S. Attorney's Office in Delaware.  In addition to Delaware, the securities fraud unit in the Southern District of New York also scrutinized Hunter Biden's finances, according to the person with direct knowledge of the investigation.  The person said that, as of early last year, investigators in Delaware and Washington were also probing potential money laundering and Hunter Biden's foreign ties.  The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to discuss the matter publicly.

How the media covered up the Hunter Biden story — until after the election.  It's now clear that the Hunter Biden story was real, with Hunter himself acknowledging a federal probe into his taxes — one that reportedly began in 2018.  Really, it was always clear.  Yet, when The New York Post broke the details, virtually the entire journalistic establishment and left-wing punditsphere defamed the newspaper, claiming it was passing on Russian "disinformation" or partisan fabrications.  The political media quickly began pumping out process stories about the alleged discord in The Post's newsroom and about the problems with the reporting.  In so doing, of course, they did practically no reporting on the substantive allegations that Joe Biden's family had spent years cashing in on his influence.  Tech companies, spurred on by these censorious journalists, shut down the account of one of America's most-read newspapers to inhibit users from reading the story.  It was completely unprecedented.

The Editor says...
The whole story about Hunter Biden's laptop (containing courtroom-quality evidence of corruption) would still be under the rug today except that Joe Biden is no longer useful to the Democratic Party.  Joe Biden is now being set up for a hasty resignation — probably after he is sworn in as president, so he can have a lifetime of benefits and his wife can make book deals.  Then the real nominee, Harris, takes over and names her vice-president — probably either Hillary Clinton, Valerie Jarrett, Oprah Winfrey, or Michelle Obama.  Along the way, the news media will only report the stories they are permitted to mention — by their puppeteers in the Democratic Party.

Joe Biden's Son, Hunter, Officially Under Investigation Over Chinese Money.  On Wednesday [12/9/2020], Hunter Biden purported president-elect Joe Biden's son, admitted that he is under investigation for tax evasion over millions in payments from China.  Just ahead of the 2020 election, the New York Post reported that emails in Hunter Biden's abandoned computer showed that he was involved in a joint venture with CEFC to create a new company in which former Vice President Joe Biden had a 10% stake.  On Wednesday, the Biden campaign put out a statement admitting that Hunter is being investigated for fraud and money laundering.

2.8-carat, $80K diamond given to Hunter Biden reportedly part of probe.  A diamond given to Hunter Biden by a since-vanished Chinese energy tycoon is part of the ongoing tax fraud probe and a potentially broader probe into President-elect Joe Biden's son, according to a report Thursday [12/10/2020].  Investigators have examined the gift of the 2.8-carat gem Hunter got from CEFE China Energy founder Ye Jianming in 2017, CNN reported, citing a source briefed on the matter.  It's unclear whether the diamond — which has been estimated to be worth as much as $80,000 — remains a focus of the tax probe that Hunter and his father's transition team unexpectedly revealed on Wednesday, according to CNN.

Intelligence expert weighs in on what a spy could gather by lurking on Facebook friends lists.  Christine Fang, or Fang Fang, a suspected spy whose reported mission was to network with and befriend up-and-coming American officials on behalf of China, remained Facebook "friends" with a number of her lesser targets for years after her cover was blown and she left the country in 2015.  Among her most high-profile targets was Rep. Eric Swalwell, who cut ties with her after the FBI briefed him on her activities, also in 2015.  But his father and brother were among dozens of people who remained on her Facebook friends list until this week.  While it's unclear whether she continued to maintain the account herself or if her victims even realized they were possibly being spied upon, China likely was monitoring the feed to mine potentially useful information, experts believe.

Trump Ally Shames NY Times Reporter for Dismissing Hunter Biden Accuser.  Arthur Schwartz, a close ally of Donald Trump Jr. tweeted some juicy material on Thursday morning [12/10/2020], claiming he sat in on a phone call between former Hunter Biden business partner Tony Bobulinski and New York Times reporter Kenneth Vogel, who he said was focused on "discrediting the Biden-China docs & emails."

Report: Joe Biden Already Planning Executive Orders On Gun Control.  Joe Biden has not even been certified as the winner of the 2020 election yet, but is already reportedly crafting new measures for gun control.  And it should come as no surprise that he is not even planning legislation to send to America's representatives but rather is planning to take steps through executive action.

Circling Vultures:  The far left is at war with Biden and it's getting out into the open.  We think of Joe Biden as a Democrat wretch whose main focus is on thwarting President Trump.  But have you gotten a load of the war he's having with the far left of his party?  Those guys seems to be circling in for some kind of kill. [...] Suddenly the mainstream media, Biden's handmaiden up until now, along with their social media coevals, are not ignoring Hunter Biden. [...] Sure, Hunter Biden is news, he's been news for awhile.  But what's maybe even bigger news is that the leftist press is finally covering it.

Joe Biden, the Manchurian President.  The Chinese government didn't just want America or Donald Trump to lose, they apparently wanted Joe Biden to win.  Cui bono?  Biden has been thoroughly corrupted through the business dealings of his son, Hunter, according to well-documented public information and confirmed by Joe's own words, and not just corrupted by China.  We know about the Ukraine and Burisma, and that Hunter also allegedly accepted $3.5 million dollars from Elena Baturina, a Russian billionaire.  We have evidence, and a corroborating witness.  Everyone seems to have forgotten that Tony Bobulinski's claims confirm the authenticity of Hunter's laptop as indisputable evidence of Joe Biden's corruption.  Bobulinski, a patriotic American citizen, came forward to defend himself against accusations of being part of a Russian disinformation campaign and confirmed that Joe Biden accepted millions of dollars from the Communist Chinese through his son Hunter.  The evidence of Joe Biden's corruption is ubiquitous, actually, and that body of evidence grows by the day.  Tucker Carlson's most recent bombshell report revealed that a Chinese economics professor confirmed in a speech that foreign agents have corrupted our federal government at the highest levels.

Joe Biden's Brother James Biden Also Under Federal Investigation:  Report.  James Biden, brother and alleged business partner of Democrat presidential nominee former Vice President Joe Biden, is under federal investigation, according to a report by Politico published late Wednesday night [12/9/2020].  The investigation into Joe Biden's brother was included in an article about the extent of the federal investigation into Joe Biden's son Hunter Biden.  The Politico report claims Joe Biden does not appear to be under investigation.

Hunter Biden reveals he is being probed by federal prosecutors over his taxes — his Chinese business dealings and NOT contents of his laptop.  President-elect Joe Biden insisted Wednesday he is 'proud' of Hunter after federal prosecutors publicly launched a probe into his son's taxes.  Federal authorities had paused their investigation in the run up to the election to avoid affecting the outcome, which would be a breach of the Justice Department guidelines.  Now the election is over, prosecutors in Delaware, the IRS Criminal Investigation agency and the FBI, have stepped up their probe by issuing subpoenas and seeking interviews, CNN reports.

Federal criminal investigation into Hunter Biden focuses on his business dealings in China.  After going quiet in the months before the election, federal authorities are now actively investigating the business dealings of Hunter Biden, a person with knowledge of the probe said.  His father, President-elect Joe Biden, is not implicated.  Now that the election is over, the investigation is entering a new phase.  Federal prosecutors in Delaware, working with the IRS Criminal Investigation agency and the FBI, are taking overt steps such as issuing subpoenas and seeking interviews, the person with knowledge said.  Activity in the investigation had gone covert in recent months due to Justice Department guidelines prohibiting overt actions that could affect an election, the person said.

Hunter Biden under federal investigation for possible tax fraud.  President-elect Joe Biden's son revealed Wednesday [12/9/2020] that he's under federal investigation for possible tax fraud, with a report saying the Justice Department is examining his overseas business dealings.  The probe also reportedly involves a laptop that belonged to Hunter Biden, the existence of which was first reported by The Post, and which contains communciations and documents detailing some of his business dealings in China and Ukraine.  Hunter Biden, 50, disclosed the probe in a statement released by his father's presidential transition office.

Mainstream Media, Big Tech Coverup Collapses with Hunter Biden Investigation.  The revelation Wednesday [12/9/2020] that Hunter Biden is under investigation for tax violations relating to his foreign business affairs confirms that the media/Big Tech censorship of stories during the election about his laptop and emails was entirely without merit.  When the New York Post reported on October 14 that Hunter Biden had introduced an official from the corrupt Ukrainian energy company Burisma to then-Vice President Joe Biden — contrary to the latter's denials that he had ever spoken to his family about their businesses — Facebook announced that it would be suppressing the story, and Twitter prevented people from sharing it.  Those who dared were suspended; the Post itself was locked out of its account for more than two weeks.

The Editor says...
The Democrats are wasting no time replacing Biden with Harris — possibly before Biden is inaugurated.

This Election Doesn't Pass the Smell Test.  Let's start with this inconvenient and overriding truth about the 2020 election:  there is no such thing as a Joe Biden fan.  Nobody actually likes Joe Biden, nobody admires him, nobody looks up to him.  He's no one's idea of role model or an aspiration.  Throughout his nearly 50-year career as a Washington hack politician — a nobody from a state that most Americans can't find on a map, a lifelong, superannuated swamp dweller who has enriched himself and his family through "public service" and contributed nothing to the commonweal — Biden, 78, has "run" for president on a couple of occasions, only to discover that nobody cared. [...] And yet here he is, the self-proclaimed "president-elect" of the United States, a doddering senescent braggart, serial liar, plagiarist, and handsy hair-sniffer, who is even now assembling a fantasy cabinet chosen strictly along the progressive lines of race, sex, and class.  If the count is to be believed, Biden somehow received more votes for president (80 million) than anyone in history, even more than the media-canonized Barack Hussein Obama, whose yes-man and water boy Biden was for eight years.

Senate Committees Drop New Report on Hunter Biden, Alarming Connections to China.  The Republican led Senate Finance and Homeland Security Committees published a new and lengthy report Tuesday evening further detailing national security concerns related to Hunter Biden's shady foreign dealings in China and Ukraine.  "The Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs (HSGAC) and the Senate Committee on Finance undertook this investigation into potential conflicts of interest, and the involvement of the Biden family in foreign business ventures while Joe Biden was vice president, following allegations that the Obama administration's Ukraine policy could have been affected by Hunter Biden's position on the board of Burisma, and that family members may have improperly sought to benefit from their relationship with the vice president," the report states.  The Committees found the relationship between the Biden family, through Hunter and former Vice President Joe Biden's brother James, is deeply connected to the Chinese Communist Party.

Joe Biden's Latest Speech Shows the Democrat Bait and Switch is a Scandal.  It's been a while since I've written on Joe Biden turning into a mental dumpster fire for the cameras.  That's partly because he's been mostly in hiding (even more so than usual) since the election.  There's also been a lot of other news out there to cover.  But rest assured, Biden's mental acuity has not been the recipient of a miraculous change.  He's still as incapable and obviously senile as he was during the campaign.  Case in point, today [12/8/2020] Biden gave a speech in which he appeared to be a dead man walking:  At one point he announces Xavier Becerra for Health and Human Services head, except he is so far gone that he couldn't get either one of those points correct.

Biden botches HHS pick Becerra's name, calls nominee 'Secretary of Health and Education Services'.  President-elect Joe Biden did not make the smoothest introduction of Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary nominee Xavier Becerra during a Tuesday [12/8/2020] event unveiling Biden's health and coronavirus team.  On Monday, the Biden transition announced that Becerra, California's attorney general and a former Democratic congressman, would be the president-elect's pick to head HHS. The choice led to criticism from prominent Republicans who have pointed to Becerra's past support for Medicare-for-all and his progressive stance on abortion.  However, Biden briefly took the focus off that controversy by botching the formal introduction of the pick.

The Saddest Inauguration Ever?  Joe Biden Just Canceled The 'Crowds', Instead Plans To Take His Swearing-In Virtual.  Sure, the media says that Joe Biden will be the next president.  Odd how we've hardly seen him lately, huh?  Yeah, he broke his foot.  But if you think that Hidin' Basement Joe was gone, think again.  When he did show up for election events, he could only muster a small crowd.  And now the man with the lowest enthusiasm for a candidate in decades seems to be continuing that pattern.  Because, blaming COVID, he wants to put on what might be considered the saddest inauguration in history.

The Editor says...
I suspect the real reason for the internet-only swearing-in ceremony is that the Socialist Democrats want to avoid the impromptu Trump rally that would take place at the Capitol, if Biden were to appear in person.  Biden's oath of office would probably be drowned out by the loudest angry, booing crowd ever seen there.  In fact, if he won't even show up to be sworn in, Mr. Biden may never make another public appearance.

Schumer: Biden 'Considering' Forgiving $50,000 in Student Loan Debt via Executive Action.  President-elect Joe Biden is "considering" forgiving $50,000 in federal student loan debt for low-income and middle class students, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) said Monday [12/7/2020].  Schumer held a press conference alongside Democratic Congressmen-elect Ritchie Torres, Mondaire Jones and Jamaal Bowman of New York, during which the group announced they have "come to the conclusion" that Biden can "forgive $50,000 of debt the first day he becomes president."  "You don't need Congress, all you need is the flick of a pen and President-elect Biden — then President Biden — can make this happen," Schumer said.

The Editor says...
[#1] Apparently it is Harris/Biden's intention to rule by decree, bypassing the Congress.  [#2] Why not forgive the national debt, too?  Or is that what the "Great Reset" is all about?

Key battleground states show massive election fraud, voting irregularities totally erase Biden's lead.  Voting irregularities and evidence of fraud are quickly piling up in key battleground states across the country.  [Video clip]

GOP Rep. Ken Buck calls for Hunter Biden special counsel in letter to Barr.  Republican Rep. Ken Buck on Monday urged Attorney General William Barr to appoint a special counsel to investigate Hunter Biden's business dealings and a laptop purportedly belonging to him in order to ensure an investigation "free from political interference."  In a letter sent to Barr, obtained by Fox News, Buck, R-Colo., urged him to "appoint a Special Counsel to investigate Mr. Hunter Biden's conduct and the contents of his laptop that is currently in the Federal Bureau of Investigation's possession."  "This investigation is critical to defending the integrity of our republic and ensuring a potential Biden Administration will not be the subject of undue foreign interference," Buck wrote.

Biden Reveals He's Completely Ignorant About 'Science' Behind Coronavirus.  Joe Biden basically built his whole campaign around bashing President Donald Trump over the coronavirus.  Never mind that virtually every position he took, he was wrong, late or copying Trump on.  Some big "plan."  But that's Joe.  But you would think with focusing completely on that and hiding out in his basement otherwise, that he would have been able to absorb at least some basic facts about the coronavirus.  But apparently not.  According to Biden, who claims to be about the "science," elementary schools are where people have the highest risk of transmission of the virus. [...] But Joe's going to solve that "high" transmission problem that doesn't exist.  How?  He's going to spend $100 billion of our money to order smaller classes by hiring more teachers.  Of course you'd have to have more physical spaces, so more money for that as well.

The Editor says...
Obviously Mr. Biden is pandering to the teachers' unions.

Biden contradicts Obama's memoir in which he opposed the mission to kill Bin Laden and claims he told Barack to 'trust your gut'.  Joe Biden has continued to contradict his story regarding his role in the 2011 mission to kill Osama bin Laden, claiming he had suggested doing 'one more pass' over the compound, before telling Obama to 'trust his instincts'.  The president-elect recalled the administration's discussion on whether or not to take action during Operation Neptune Spear, in CNN's new documentary, 'President in Waiting,' that aired Saturday night [12/5/2020].  "When it came time to go or not go, the president went around the room.  I think there were 17 people around the table ... and [he] said, 'what do you think we should do?'" Biden said in the film.

Minnesota Witness:  Mentally Handicapped Individuals Forced to Vote for Biden.  Stealing the elderly and mentally disabled vote is a well-documented and fraudulent election practice taking place across the nation.  Specifically, voting "handlers" have been known to register to vote on behalf of these vulnerable citizens or force them to vote for the candidate they are representing.  On Nov. 2, 2020, in Otsego, Minnesota, a retired construction worker, developer, and land investor made one such declaration.

Is America ready to commit suicide?  The presidential election has been hijacked by the radical left.  The investigations and appeals are proceeding according to law, that is to say methodically — and, therefore, slowly.  It is conceivable that there will not be enough time remaining for the process to be completed before the Electoral College casts its votes.  This means that Joe Biden may be installed in the White House after fraudulently winning the election.

Canceling Christmas:  The COVID Straw to Break the Camel's Back?  "Christmas is going to be a lot harder," Joe Biden told an audience in a virtual briefing on December 2.  "I don't want to scare anyone here, but understand the facts.  We're likely to lose another 250,000 people dead between now and January ... because people aren't paying attention."  The purpose of Biden's statements was clearly to scare people into canceling their holiday travel plans and embracing lockdowns, making his opening disclaimer a complete lie.  He certainly aims to provoke panic, but any reasonable person knows that this particular prediction is a desperate attempt at fear-mongering. [...] Biden's purposefully exaggerated and dark prediction, thankfully, isn't "likely" to happen at all.  What's more, Americans all know it.  That's why they traveled for Thanksgiving and will travel for Christmas, too.  That's a problem for the media and progressives, because they like to imagine the American people to be children who can't be trusted with access to the cookie jar, and that's why, for their own good, daddy government and mommy media need to hide it from time to time.

Joe Biden:  Unity, Fraud, and Power.  It's this column's opinion that Biden isn't actively provoking conflict by calling for unity.  Instead that's simply evidence of a has-been political hack saying the things has-been political hacks can be expected to say.  Typically someone who wins a presidential election calls for unity, and Biden thinks he's won, so he's calling for unity.  It comes off as stupid, but so does Biden.  But a significant portion of America's voting public sees something else in those calls.  And they shouldn't be dismissed.  If Joe Biden truly wanted unity, rather than political power, he would not be claiming himself "president-elect."  He is most certainly not "president-elect" and cannot be so until one of two things happens.  Either President Trump must concede the election in order to make Biden truly president-elect or the Electoral College must meet and award Biden 270 of its 538 votes.  Neither of those has happened. [...] So what he's asking for is not unity.  It's obedience.

Former Philly Archbishop:  Joe Biden Should Be Denied Holy Communion.  Though Joe Biden may indeed be a Catholic, he directly opposes church teaching on grave moral matters, especially abortion.  As a public servant committing a public sin, church teaching stipulates that he should be denied access to the sacrament of Holy Communion until he repents.  However, D.C. Cardinal Wilton Gregory has said he will administer Holy Communion to Joe Biden in the spirit of dialogue; former Philadelphia Archbishop Charles Chaput disagrees.

Official Catholic doctrine on pro-abortion politicians:
Worthiness to Receive Holy Communion:  General Principles.  [Scroll down]  Regarding the grave sin of abortion or euthanasia, when a person's formal cooperation becomes manifest (understood, in the case of a Catholic politician, as his consistently campaigning and voting for permissive abortion and euthanasia laws), his Pastor should meet with him, instructing him about the Church's teaching, informing him that he is not to present himself for Holy Communion until he brings to an end the objective situation of sin, and warning him that he will otherwise be denied the Eucharist.

Mr. Biden and the Matter of Scandal.  Public figures who identify as "Catholic" give scandal to the faithful when receiving Communion by creating the impression that the moral laws of the Church are optional.  And bishops give similar scandal by not speaking up publicly about the issue and danger of sacrilege.

Biden's Disturbing Answer on How He'll Resolve Fundamental Differences With Kamala Harris.  Joe Biden and Kamala Harris gave a joint interview to CNN's Jake Tapper on Thursday.  Biden also gave one of his signature, bewildering answers when asked how he plans to resolve fundamental disagreements with his vice president.  "When we disagree, so far it's been just like when Barack and I did," Biden said. "... And like I told Barack, if I reach something where there's a fundamental disagreement we have based on a moral principle, I'll develop some disease and say I have to resign."  So if and when Biden realizes that he has fundamental disagreements with his vice president, the most liberal member of the U.S. Senate, we can expect Biden to say that he has developed a disease and resign?  My guess is COVID or some form of dementia.

Biden: If Kamala And I Disagree, *Someone* Will Claim A Disease And Resign.  Under normal circumstances, this might be an amusing way of understanding the ethics of serving in an administration.  And it still might be, if not for a lack of clarity on precisely to whom Joe Biden applies this standard, especially as the nation's oldest presumptive president prepares to take office.  CNN's Jake Tapper wondered how Biden and Kamala Harris, once bitter rivals, have gotten along as running mates and now transitioning to office.  Just fine, Biden said, but if that changes, Biden says he'll fall back on the understanding he had with Barack Obama.  Someone will have to "develop a disease and resign," Biden says, but who?

Joe Biden says Hunter won't work any jobs that conflict with his role as president.  President-elect Joe Biden on Thursday said that his son Hunter Biden won't reap an overseas business windfall from his new job as commander in chief.  "My son, my family will not be involved in any business, any enterprise that is in conflict with or appears to be in conflict with where there's appropriate distance from the presidency and government," Biden told CNN journalist Jake Tapper in a taped interview.  Hunter Biden's business relationships in China, Kazakhstan, Russia and Ukraine became a major focus in the weeks ahead of the Nov. 3 election.  An abandoned laptop provided by a Delaware computer repairman to President Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani contained bombshell documents appearing to implicate Joe Biden in his son's business relationships in China and Ukraine.

Biden to urge mask-wearing for first 100 days in office.  President-elect Joe Biden plans to call on Americans to wear masks for his first 100 days in office, he announced Thursday [12/3/2020].  Biden has long urged Americans to wear masks to combat the COVID-19 pandemic.  During an interview with CNN's Jake Tapper on Thursday, he put a specific time frame on what his request will be.  "Just 100 days to mask, not forever.  100 days.  And I think we'll see a significant reduction" in COVID-19 infections, Biden said, according to a preview of the interview that will air Thursday evening.

The Editor says...
Politicians are quick to say things like, "It's only for 100 days."  What they never say is, "This will be the last 100 days, and the problem will be solved."  There will always be an extension, a renewal, a second (third, or fourth) wave, accompanied by some lame excuse.  The ugly truth is that wearing masks is all about showing your submission to the state.  Wearing masks accomplishes little else.

The Best Security Cabinet the Yuan Can Buy.  If Joe Biden assumes office in January, it appears that he will make boring tedium and reliability a priority.  The machine is going to run so smoothly that it can be put in the toddler's room and not even interrupt nap time, which is precisely the point.  Apart from critics in the pundit sphere, the conservative grassroots, and the far-Left anti-war movement, many of the faceless myrmidons who will fill the administration are strangers with an almost invisible presence in the public eye.  They are trading in the flashy tones of Senators Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) for the bland and uninspiring cadence of Janet Yellen at Treasury and Alejandro Mayorkas at Homeland Security.  The list is so full of no-names that USA Today mostly focused on their ethnic and family heritage lines, which obscures another major issue:  their lack of fame is not an indicator of clean records.

MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell hits Biden team for not being 'forthcoming' about president-elect's foot injury.  MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell dinged the Biden team Monday [11/30/2020] for their lack of transparency about the president-elect's foot injury over the holdiay weekend.  On Sunday, Biden's doctor announced that the president-elect had twisted his ankle the day before while playing with his dog, Major.  The injury will likely require Biden to wear a walking boot.  "Initial x-rays are reassuring that there is no obvious fracture and he will be getting an additional CT for more detailed imaging," Dr. Kevin O'Connor said in a statement.  "Follow-up CT scan confirmed hairline (small) fractures of President-elect Biden's lateral and intermediate cuneiform bones, which are in the mid-foot.  It is anticipated that he will likely require a walking boot for several weeks."

I'll bet Mr. Biden is really incoherent, or indecipherable, when he's on pain medications!

The True Source of Catholic Democratic Confusion.  Townhall reports that Los Angeles Archbishop José Gomez, president of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), has formed a working group of bishops expressly "to navigate challenges posed by a Biden administration."  The archbishop is concerned that Biden's "positions that are opposed to Church teaching, like abortion," not only "pose a serious threat to the common good whenever any politician supports them," but cause "confusion among the faithful about what the church actually teaches on these questions."  It's a sad truth that every Catholic officeholder professing a heart aflame for the faith who meanwhile toils night and day for a party at war with every Christian value, wouldn't be in office without the votes of a lot of confused Catholics.  The most notorious burning heart right now beats inside Joe Biden, the man NPR loves to remind listeners "carries a rosary in his pocket and attends Mass every Sunday."  And of course Nancy Pelosi, whose grating sanctimony as she defends abortion as "sacred ground," or lectures on the demands of morality (Trump's impeachment), and depths of immorality (a secure national border), are peddled to Catholics as the prayerful outpourings of an "ardent" practitioner of the faith.

Joe Biden cabinet picks are setting presidency up to be 'Swamp Things 2'.  John freakin' Kerry.  Again.  After a summer of discontent driven in part by protests against racial injustice and in part by the not-altogether-unrelated desire of a great many Americans to be rid of Donald Trump, Joe Biden has responded to his party's call for sweeping social change by taking a deep dive into the Ivy League trash heap and coming up with the pale desiccated carcass of John Kerry, the man whose chiseled face appears next to the entry for "mediocrity" in the American political dictionary.  Kerry is leading a parade of familiar faces, a hack pack if ever there were one.

Buyer's remorse, already.
Nearly one out five voters would change their vote for Biden.  The Democrats knew what they were doing when they pushed voters to vote early. [...] Turns out that was great for them, but a bad deal for the voters.  In fact, it was a sleight of hand comparable to three-card monte, to a lot of sad marks who gave up their right to an Election-Day vote, cast their ballot as told for Biden, and now can't get it back.  According to OAN One America News, a survey from the Media Research Institute found that 17% of Biden voters regretted their votes.  Some 45% said they had never heard of the Biden scandals, ranging from the sexual assault allegations from legislative staffer Tara Read, to the evidence of selling influence to China and other rogue actors found in the abandoned laptop of Biden's son Hunter.  In the OAN interview, MRC's Dan Gainor told OAN's John Hines that 9% of those Biden voters surveyed said they would have changed their votes based on the news of corruption allegations, which had been repressed on social media and ignored by most of the mainstream press.

Democrats fight over who should serve as Biden's Agriculture Secretary as influential party members push for black Congresswoman to be picked.  A fight is breaking out among Democrats over who Joe Biden should pick to be his Secretary of Agriculture.  The president-elect has yet to appoint the person who will head up the Agriculture Department, which oversees various agencies including the United States Forest Service, the United States Food Safety and Inspection Service, and the Food Stamp Program.  South Carolina Rep. James Clyburn — who is widely seen as playing a crucial role in Biden's Democratic primary victory — told The New York Times on Thursday that Biden should name Ohio Rep. Marcia Fudge to the powerful position.

Pre-selecting the race and gender of an employee before reviewing the candidates' qualifications is racism and sexism.  Some people call it "affirmative action," if it precludes white males, but it's still racism and sexism.

Trump Wants Biden to Prove His 80 Million Votes Aren't Fraudulent if He's to 'Enter the White House as President'.  President Trump decided to hit Twitter with a Black Friday surprise, saying that "Biden can only enter the White House as President" if he can prove that he didn't get there fraudulently:  [Tweet]  As is always the case with Trump's best trolling, the triggering effect on the libs is worth the price of admission.  What they're calling delusion, conservative Republicans are calling a spine.  There is no quit in this president.  We're almost four years into this and that fact is still a new thing for Republicans.  We're just barely getting used to it after decades of weak GOP leaders rolling over and playing dead whenever the Democrats and their media mouthpieces told them to.

Lucky Joe gets phone call from China President Xi Jinping.  Like clockwork yesterday [11/24/2020], one day after Biden unveiled his Definitely-Not-America-First foreign-policy and national-security team, China President Xi Jinping phoned to congratulate him.  Xi said he hoped "the two sides will uphold the spirit of ... win-win cooperation."  Oh yes, Biden knows all about "win-win cooperation" with China.  They win and then they win some more.  Biden was the Obama administration's point man for Beijing during the period when millions of American jobs were shipped to China.  It began with China's entry into the World Trade Organization in 2001.  That was the last time "win-win" was loaded with so much irony, when President Bill Clinton lauded the move as "a win-win result for both countries."  After that, the trade deficit exploded.  We couldn't compete with the low wages, and the AFL-CIO estimated US manufacturing wages dropped between 46 percent and 86 percent.

Joe Biden Tries to Quote Book in the Bible, It Goes Horribly Wrong.  Joe Biden was playing at being president today, giving a 'Thanksgiving message.'  But Joe Biden being Joe Biden meant that not only was he falsely assuming a role he didn't have, namely president, but that he also was going to just completely mess it up.  First, he told people it was their "patriotic duty" to "forego family traditions" for Thanksgiving because of the Wuhan coronavirus. [...] He's clearly reading off a teleprompter again and has absolutely no idea what he's even saying.  [Video clip]

Even if he's a phony Catholic who has never spoken the word psalmist before, or never opened the Bible just to look around, one would think that Mr. Biden would have rehearsed the speech in the presence of one of his writers.

Computer Repairman Who Threatened Biden's Electoral Prospects Goes Into Hiding.  The only person who burns for revenge more than a Democrat who just lost is a Democrat who just won.  The Dems are getting what they want, a Trump-free White House, and it makes them furious.  Now they're publicly yearning for vengeance against the computer repairman who almost cost them their victory.  And he did so by telling the truth, which they hate like poison.  Just weeks before the election, the owner of a computer repair shop near Joe Biden's home claimed to have a laptop full of incriminating evidence that Hunter Biden had abandoned 18 months ago.  The New York Post broke the story, which set off such a panic that Twitter suspended the centuries-old newspaper and blocked all links to the story.  Of course, this triggered the Streisand Effect, bringing even more attention to a story they were trying to suppress.

There's More Than One Way to Steal an Election.  The evidence is strong that the Democratic Party press swung this year's election to Biden by its selective non-coverage of critically important news stories that reflected well on President Trump or poorly on Biden.  The Media Research Center has conducted extensive polling in seven key swing states.  The MRC asked Biden voters whether they were aware of certain facts or news stories, and if they were not, whether awareness of those facts or issues would have caused them to change their vote away from Biden. [...] You might think that Democratic voters simply don't care about the facts.  But that isn't what respondents said in this survey.  MRC asked whether, if the respondent had known a particular fact, he would nevertheless have voted for Joe Biden, voted for President Trump, voted for a third-party candidate, or not voted at all.  It turns out that all of these under-reported stories had the potential to swing significant numbers of voters away from Joe Biden.

Poll: One In Six Biden Voters Would Have Changed Their Vote If They Had Known About Scandals Suppressed By Media.  A new report from the Media Research Center shows that the media's lack of coverage and big tech's suppression of certain issues and scandals surrounding Democratic Presidential Nominee Joe Biden could have cost President Donald Trump the election.  The survey results report that 17 percent of Biden voters would not have voted for the Biden-Harris presidential ticket if they had known about at least one of the eight news stories that were suppressed by big tech and mainstream media outlets.  "This is not happenstance.  This is not coincidence.  This is not oversight and this is not just a mistake," president and founder of Media Research Center Brent Bozell said at a press conference Tuesday.  "These were deliberate decisions that were made thousands of times, literally thousands of times, to either twist or to not cover it at all, which we found in this case."

FBI Buried Hunter Biden Laptop.  [Scroll down]  After the New York Post published damning excerpts from correspondence found on the laptop, the bureau needed to show it was in hot pursuit.  But it wasn't.  Otherwise, the FBI would have interviewed Bobulinski, whose name is on correspondence found on the laptop, long before last month's kabuki show.  So, if there was no real investigation, why did the U.S. Attorney's Office in Delaware, a state dominated by Joe Biden for nearly half a century, issue a grand jury subpoena for the laptop?  As grand jury material, it could be kept under wraps.  The FBI and other agencies have known about Hunter Biden's relationships with allegedly corrupt foreign entities for quite some time.  In 2015, State Department officials warned then Vice President Biden about Hunter taking a seat on the board of a Ukrainian energy company, Burisma, which was under various corruption investigations.  Nonetheless, Hunter continued to draw a monthly salary of more than $50,000 from a company whose owner was on Ukraine's most-wanted list.

The media are complicit in the fraud we see today.  On November 15, 2020, Ukraine announced that Biden is wanted in that country on Class A felony charges.  The former president, Viktor Poroshenko, is on trial for corruption and treason.  We know Joe Biden's role in this because he boasted about it.  There are also taped conversations in which Biden discusses using American money in a way that would end up protecting his son.  Ukrainians actually refer to our senate Democrats as Democorruptionists.  That's right.  A country we often add the qualifier "corrupt" to thinks we are a joke.  Think of this:  Vice President Biden concocted a scheme where he would perform certain favors with taxpayer money for a personal benefit.  Ukrainian investigators have traced the transfers of millions of dollars from Ukraine to the Biden family.  The American media completely ignore Joe Biden's role in this scheme.  Viktor Poroshenko is looking at life in prison, and the media have anointed Joe Biden as the American president — and it is Ukraine with the corruption problem?

Joe Biden, Hunter Biden, George Soros, Facing Indictment in Ukraine?  According to New York One News and SCE News, the criminal case involving Joe Biden's abuse of power with regard to Ukraine and the subsequent political favor hiring of his son, Hunter, by a large Ukrainian energy company is coming to a close.  In a Ukraine Federal Court, warrants have been issued for the arrests of both Hunter and Joe Biden with charges of corruption and conspiracy.  Interpol has been alerted and an arrest will take place should either set foot in Europe.  They have not yet requested extradition from the USA, not sure if extradition would even be granted.  A third warrant is also being issued and this one is a surprise, sources point to George Soros has also been named as a co-conspirator in the case for it turns out that Soros is a partner in the energy company.  This should come as little surprise though.  When business corruption is involved, Soros whose involvement in election fraud in the U.S. is currently under investigation.

Biden picks architect of DACA to lead DHS.  Presumptive President-elect Joseph R. Biden said Monday he will nominate Alejandro Mayorkas, the man who oversaw the creation of DACA during the Obama years, to be his Homeland Security secretary.  Mr. Mayorkas has extensive experience in the department, having served as head of the citizenship agency and then as deputy for the whole department, underneath then-Secretary Jeh Johnson.  While head of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services he oversaw the 2012 creation of DACA, the Obama-era program that has protected hundreds for illegal immigrant "Dreamers" from deportation and given them a chance to hold a job.

Report: Biden to Name Russia Hoaxer, CNN Analyst Tony Blinken Secretary of State.  Former Vice President Joe Biden is reportedly set to announce this week that Tony Blinken, who supported the idea of "Russia collusion," would be his Secretary of State. [...] Blinken, who served as deputy secretary of state and deputy national security advisor under President Barack Obama, has also been a New York Times opinion writer and a "global affairs analyst" for CNN.  In that capacity, he supported the "Russia collusion" hoax.

Do Trump-Supporters Live in an Alternate Universe?  [Scroll down]  The laptop belongs to Hunter Biden.  Russia has nothing at all to do with it.  There is a massive amount of information on the laptop demonstrating schemes to enrich the Biden family by selling influence.  Tony Bobulinski worked closely with the Bidens to set up some of the questionable transactions.  Tony met with Joe and said Joe was fully onboard with these business plans.  Joe got a percentage of the foreign money.  Hunter made deals with high-ranking Chinese communists, plus lucrative deals with several other countries.  Joe is thoroughly compromised.  The way that the MSM and all of social media worked to hide this story is shocking.

Parallel presidency:  So-called 'president-elect' Joe Biden muscles in on President Trump.  The votes haven't even been tallied in some places, let alone audited or recounted or certified, and already Joe Biden is running a parallel presidency. [...] but the broader picture is that Biden is holding a conference of governors.  That's with Biden, who holds no office, presiding as head of state.  And no, he's not telling them to stop the rioters trashing the blue states, that would take leadership.  He's undoubtedly making a play for his tax-and-spend agenda, promising federal bailouts to mismanaged spendaholic blue states, to be financed by productive well-managed red-states and their taxpayers.  The governors of course, are looking for their best piece of action, trying to get on Biden's good side, knowing that crony deals are a way of life for him.  Deals are being cut.  Worse still, they aren't subject to the usual Freedom of Information inquiries since they aren't being done on the government dime.

Rudy and Sidney's Krakentastic Spectacle, and What It Could Mean.  [Scroll down]  There are lots of elements to the case, but essentially it boils down to this: the Biden campaign, in league with nefarious actors both domestic and foreign who are invested for various reasons in replacing Donald Trump as the president of the United States, engaged in a rather brazen smash-and-grab of the 2020 presidential election.  No.  Not brazen.  That's not a correct description. Desperate is more accurate.  Because what was done in the counting of votes in the election on Nov. 3 and days following is best explained, as Giuliani suggested, as sloppiness derived from a frantic struggle to produce votes for Biden at Trump's expense in key states.  Initially it was thought that those states were six — Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan, Wisconsin, Arizona, and Nevada.  Now it appears New Mexico and Virginia might be added to the mix following investigations of irregularities there.

The Left's Utter Nonsense.  [Scroll down]  Furthermore, we're expected to believe that a basement-dwelling, muddle-minded plagiarist collected more real votes for president than a wildly popular (note his rallies), highly successful incumbent.  We're to believe that a man who didn't, nay, couldn't campaign, could amass more votes than any other presidential candidate before him.  Really?  A man who has accomplished nothing in almost a half-century of public office?  A man we know has enriched himself and his family by selling out America and her interests to enemy countries?  We're supposed to just go home and carry on as if nothing really important has happened?

'They want Kamala in there tomorrow': Limbaugh says Dems to dump Biden.  Joe Biden, if he becomes president, could be in danger from his own party, suggests talk-radio host Rush Limbaugh.  It's because the Democrats favored candidates from the far left during their primary but knew none of them could win the White House.  So they put an extremist on the ballot as vice president, Kamala Harris, and once Biden is in office, he's done, Limbaugh said.  "They want to get rid of him as soon as they can.  They have no intention of this guy serving a full four-year term," he said.

Reminder:  Joe Biden has no authority until at least January 20, 2021.
COVID 1984: Joe Biden Announces His Absurd Thanksgiving Recommendations for Americans.  With mayors and governors issuing edicts about Thanksgiving celebrations that are unlikely to be followed, it's good to see that the presumptive president-elect is getting on with it, too.  During the question-and-answer portion of a speech delivered Monday in Delaware ostensibly focused on the economy, Joe Biden said he would "suggest five people, maximum 10 people" who have previously quarantined attend Thanksgiving celebrations so "that we're able to be together next Thanksgiving, next Christmas."

Report Suggests Mainstream Media Silence On Hunter Biden Laptop Story Vital To Biden Success.  Internal data from the Biden campaign shows that bombshell stories relating to a laptop apparently owned by Hunter Biden made more noise online than the massive Hillary Clinton email scandal of 2016. However, Team Biden was spared scrutiny from the mainstream media, seemingly boosting him in the 2020 presidential election.  "According to Biden campaign metrics, online chatter about the Hunter Biden story during the election's last week was greater than it was around Hillary's emails during last month of '16," the Daily Beast's Sam Stein reported Monday [11/16/2020].  "The difference:  it never spilled over into mainstream outlets."

People who live in glass houses should not throw stones.
Biden claims he wants to avoid federal investigations into Trump for sake of unity:  Report.  Democratic nominee Joe Biden is not interested in launching federal investigations into President Donald Trump once he leaves office because he believes it will be too divisive for the country, according to sources who have spoken to him about it, NBC News reported.  The outlet, quoting five people supposedly familiar with the discussions, said the former vice president is pushing back against vindictive Democrats who seek investigations into President Trump, his policy decisions, and some members of his administration.  It's not clear what legal violations the president is alleged to have committed that would warrant investigations, presumably by a Biden Justice Department.

Jihadists Are Rooting for a Biden Presidency.  It should be of grave concern that America's avowed enemies are cheering on the possibility of a Biden presidency.  Thus, "Iraq's pro-Tehran factions have welcomed Joe Biden's election as US president[.]"  That such politicians who have called the U.S. "evil" and shout the phrase "death to America" would be pleased by a possible Biden win speaks volumes. [...] In truth, the Muslim Brotherhood is hoping that under a President Biden, the U.S. would remove the group from the list of terrorist organizations.  Yet "no US administration can afford to dismiss the warning bells sounded by Arabs in the wake of the Muslim Brotherhood's attempt to present itself as a peaceful group that seeks to bring freedom and democracy to the Arab world."  Here in America, anti-Semite activist Linda Sarsour has made her preference for Biden quite clear.

Look Who Biden Is Asking For Advice On How To Create Jobs.  If the business executives Joe Biden met with Monday [11/16/2020] are an indication of the kind of advice he's seeking out on the economy, the country is in for trouble.  At Monday's briefing, Biden was practically giddy about a meeting he'd had earlier in the day with CEOs at four big companies — Microsoft, The Gap, Target, and General Motors — along with five union bosses.  "It was really encouraging, quite frankly," he said, to get "business and labor agreeing on the way forward."  "I wish you could have all heard the conversation."  Why these companies?  Biden didn't say.  But if he wanted advice on how to grow the economy and create jobs, he picked a sorry lot to get it from.

What We Must Believe to Believe Biden Won.  The Democrats dismiss any mention of the innumerable irregularities that tainted the general election as little more than crackpot conspiracy theories.  This is a convenient way to avoid addressing serious questions raised by serious observers, but it will further undermine confidence in key institutions that form the foundation upon which the republic stands.  Public trust in government, media, and even science was already declining before Election Day.  This trend will dramatically accelerate if Americans don't get answers to questions such as the following:  Why would the voters deliver the Democrats a comprehensive down-ballot drubbing yet hand the White House to the worst presidential candidate in living memory?  The last time a Democrat "won" the presidency while his party sustained a double-digit loss in the House was in 1960, during an election tainted by probable vote fraud in Illinois and Texas.  Still, we're expected to believe that Joe Biden achieved the same feat in 2020 with no skulduggery?

Emboldened by Biden, the Lockdown Fascists Return for Round 3.  Joe Biden's election hasn't even been certified yet and he is already my least favorite American president ever.  When I wrote last week that Biden was going to soon make us all miss Barack Obama I was being sarcastic.  Now it appears that I may be Nostradamus reincarnated.  After Grandpa Gropes ran a campaign where he simply barked "Pandemic!" over and over like a trained seal, it's no surprise that he and his Democratic minions in various statehouses are already cranking up the COVID panic-porn alarms.  Our betters are now telling us that we should avoid friends and family and cancel Thanksgiving.  Of course, it's another "Rules for thee, but not for me" bit of COVID nonsense, as evidenced by the recent antics of California dictator Gavin Newsom.  We've seen nothing but hypocrisy from the tyrants who insist that the only way to make the 'rona go away is for the peasants to stay home and go broke while they go on about their business and pleasure as if nothing whatsoever were going on.

Joe Biden may be your least favorite president so far — but only because Harris hasn't been sworn in yet!

A Hunter Biden-linked firm's pursuit of Russian money.  A few months before Russian oligarch Elena Baturina wired $3.5 million in February 2014 to a Hunter Biden-linked firm, his business associates scrambled to secure U.S. bank approval because she was on a federal government "watch list" for financial transactions, according to never-before-revealed emails and documents.  The document trove may be viewed [elsewhere.]  The memos, obtained by Just the News, show Hunter Biden's primary business partner, Devon Archer, and business associates Jason Galanis and Bevan Cooney, began working in November 2013 to overcome regulatory and compliance issues so they could take the Russian billionaire's money in one of their companies, called Burnham.  Baturina had asked the men to set up a U.S. bank account for her as part of the transactions, the memos show.  "She's so rich she has Burnham money stuck in her sofa.  Good luck Archie," Galanis wrote Archer in late 2013 about the ongoing effort to lure her investment and get a bank account open for Baturina.

Joe Biden's Potemkin Presidency:  Will Socialist Soros And Other Extreme Leftists Call The Shots?  Joe Biden's big selling point to both the Democratic Party and the American people was that, in a crowd of candidates standing far left of center, he was the moderate choice.  Now, as he staffs a possible White House with far-left media re-treads and George Soros' socialist acolytes, we're seeing that his supposed moderation was just another of his endless lies.  No one should be surprised.  President Barack Obama played the moderate in his first campaign, then became the most far-left president in our history.  He, too, opened the White House doors to Soros-linked socialist apparatchiks.  Their inept policies led inevitably to economic stagnation and the worst foreign policy disasters in decades.

Grassley To DOJ: Hunter, James Biden's Actions [Possibly] 'Make Them Agents Of The Chinese Government'.  Iowa GOP Sen. Chuck Grassley, the chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, is going after Joe Biden and his family big time.  In a letter to Attorney General William Barr, Grassley stated, "... the actions by Hunter Biden and James Biden on behalf of CEFC, Ye Jianming, and other officers connected to CEFC, potentially make them agents of the Chinese government."  Grassley began the letter by stating that he had served "in both the Obama and Trump administrations, I have conducted oversight of the Department of Justice's (DOJ) lax and selective enforcement of the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA)."

Biden faces immense backlash and friction for the next four years, if he is sworn in at all.
Biden campaign reportedly worries inauguration could turn into Trump MAGA rally.  Some members of Joe Biden's campaign team are reportedly worried that Inauguration Day in Washington, D.C. might turn into a huge President Trump rally, similar to the raucous "Make America Great Again" events he held throughout the campaign.  In a Daily Beast piece headlined "Biden World Fears Trump Will Bring 'Weird S***' to Their Inauguration," the liberal website says Biden supporters, more worried about COVID-19 than Trump supporters, might not attend — but MAGA supporters just might fill that void.  "Inaugurals always require intricate planning.  This one will be a really delicate dance to have that element of accessibility without risk," Steve Kerrigan, who served as the CEO of the 2013 Presidential Inaugural Committee (PIC), told the Beast.  "I cannot see a President-elect Biden, like Trump, putting narcissism or ego ahead of the safety of people."

Resurfaced Video of Joe Biden Should Destroy Him.  Absolutely brutal.  Joe Biden has not aged well.  [Video clip]

Catholic Pro-Life Leaders Denounce Bishops for Congratulating Joe Biden.  Judie Brown, the president of ALL [American Life League], the nation's oldest grassroots, Catholic pro-life organization, said in a statement this week:  ["]The USCCB has affirmed what many of us have suspected for many years, and that is that most Catholic bishops have no problem with a Catholic politician spitting at the face of Christ by supporting the vile murder of the preborn.  Joe Biden is such a man; he claims to be Catholic, yet he gives 100 percent support for abortion every day of the week and in every manner of brutality against the innocent.  The Catholic bishops have erred, and as a Catholic, I am ashamed of them.["]

Confirmed: Biden Cancer Initiative Spent on Salaries — and Little Else.  The New York Post confirmed Saturday [11/14/2020] what Breitbart News and others had reported earlier this year:  that the Biden Cancer Initiative, founded by former Vice President Joe Biden, spent millions on staff salaries but did little about cancer research.

This would have been nice to know in October, although Democrats wouldn't have cared.
Tax filings reveal Biden cancer charity spent millions on salaries, zero on research.  A cancer charity started by Joe Biden gave out no money to research, and spent most of its contributions on staff salaries, federal filings show.  The Biden Cancer Initiative was founded in 2017 by the former vice president and his wife Jill Biden to "develop and drive implementation of solutions to accelerate progress in cancer prevention, detection, diagnosis, research and care and to reduce disparities in cancer outcomes," according to its IRS mission statement.  But it gave out no grants in its first two years, and spent millions on the salaries of former Washington DC aides it hired.  The charity took in $4,809,619 in contributions in fiscal years 2017 and 2018, and spent $3,070,301 on payroll in those two years.  The group's president, Gregory Simon, raked in $429,850 in fiscal 2018 (July 1, 2018 to June 30, 2019), according to the charity's most recent federal tax filings.

Joe Biden and the Bunker Presidency.  This year's presidential election showed that slightly more than half of America no longer wants a president who speaks to them openly and often.  They don't want a chief executive who tweets, regularly takes contentious interviews, routinely answers questions from hostile reporters, and does freestyle stand-up at his boisterous rallies.  Instead, they want a fragile, cosseted figurehead — a museum piece — who gives few speeches (all shopworn and canned), avoids tough questions from the press, and utters nothing without a teleprompter.  They want T. S. Eliot's hollow man, a headpiece filled with straw.  They want a basement candidate who will be a bunker president.  They want Joe Biden.

Joe Biden Says Pope Francis Offered Him 'Blessings and Congratulations'.  The Biden-Harris Transition team announced Thursday that Mr. Biden had spoken by telephone with Pope Francis, who offered him "blessings and congratulations."  The press release does not specify who initiated the call, but only that "President-elect Joe Biden spoke this morning with His Holiness Pope Francis." Since, however, the pope as a rule does not call to congratulate people for political victories, it must be assumed that the Biden team made the call.

Obviously Biden is shopping around for celebrities who will add credibility to his self-proclaimed win.

Biden Prepares To Impose Sweeping Green New Deal Measures On America.  Last Saturday [11/7/2020], [Joe] Biden was unanimously declared as the winner of the 2020 election by a crooked media that ran interference for him throughout the campaign and coordinated to censor a late story on his son Hunter's abandoned laptop.  Nevermind that not one state has certified their elections or the courts have had a chance to rule on multiple legal challenges over irregularities and other fakery, forces that are behind the geriatric gaffe machine are going full speed ahead with their plans.  One of their top priorities is the imposition of socialism upon unsuspecting Americans by using the Green New Deal to capitalize on climate change doomsday scenarios as an excuse to completely remake society which includes controlling how citizens will be allowed to live their lives.

Biden Said Two Months Ago He Would Not Declare Victory Until Election Was Independently Certified.  There are a lot of things Democrats, NeverTrumpers, and the mainstream media have said and done in the aftermath of the election that are just flat out rotten, as my RedState colleagues and I have previously documented.  Among the most rotten of all has been Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden going back on what he said in September about how and when he would declare victory.

Senator Grassley Questions DOJ About Chinese Influence Over Hunter and Jim Biden.  Yesterday Senator Chuck Grassley sent a letter [pdf below] to Attorney General Bill Barr pointing out the serious compromise amid the Biden family and their relationship with the Chinese communist government.  Within the letter Grassley outlines the revelations of payments from CEFC China Energy, an entity owned by the Chinese government. [...] It is stunning that we could face a possibility of the Biden family in a position of power while the demonstrable payments from China stare us in the face.

Meet Joe Biden's seventh grandchild Navy Joan Roberts — the two-year-old lovechild Hunter tried to deny he had with stripper.  Growing up behind a veil of secrecy, the adorable little girl who Hunter Biden didn't want to claim as his own is a happy two-year-old living in rural Arkansas with her mother and her mother's family, DailyMail.com can reveal.  On Saturday [11/7/2020], Joe Biden invited six of his grandchildren on stage when he announced to the world that he had won the 2020 presidential election.  But the seventh was missing from the smiling ranks of America's next First Family:  Navy Joan Roberts, the two-year-old daughter Hunter fathered with stripper Lunden Roberts then shamefully denied was his.

Hostile Takeover:  Wall Street Assumes Command of Joe Biden Transition Team.  Wall Street and the biggest U.S. banks, after spending a fortune to unseat President Trump, are getting key spots in Democrat Joe Biden's transition team that he has devised before the presidential election is certified.  Detailed by the New York Times, Biden's list of transition team members includes former Wall Street employees and those with close ties to Wall Street.  Many of the big banks with links to Biden transition team members were major donors to the former vice president.

George Soros Looms Large Over Biden Transition.  Joe Biden's transition team includes several people affiliated with organizations bankrolled by the left-wing billionaire George Soros.  Biden's "Agency Review Teams," which include lists of individuals "responsible for understanding the operations" of each government agency, will prepare "President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris ... to hit the ground running on Day One."  Soros is well represented on those lists.  Sarah Cross, an advocacy director at Soros's Open Society Foundations, received a seat on Biden's State Department transition team.  Michael Pan, a special adviser in the executive office of the Open Society Foundations, will join the United States Mission to the United Nations team.  Diane Thompson, who is listed as "self-employed" and a member of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau team, is a current Leadership in Government Fellow at the Open Society Foundations.

The Left's Civility Claptrap.  Joe Biden's campaigns have rested on the most rancid racial politics.  In 2020, he routinely accused his opponent of racism and support for white supremacism, drawing on nothing but his own libelous twisting of Trump's words after the rioting in Charlottesville.  In 2012, Biden had accused Republicans of planning to put blacks "back in chains."  His venom came out also on non-racial matters.  He once called opponents of gay marriage the "dregs of society."  In the Senate, he habitually hurled dirty charges, becoming the father of Borking.  But now Biden's thoughts turn to civility.  He promises to lead us out of a "grim era of demonization."  Biden is not the first Democrat to peddle this claptrap.  Indeed, it is a standard hypocrisy of Democrats:  out of power, they extol incivility; once they regain power, they denounce it. [...] "Civility" to the Left is simply a tool of propaganda with which to secure docility from the people.  But liberals have never felt the slightest need to practice it themselves, much less adhere to any moral system that would require it.

Joe Biden, Candidate of Lies.  [Scroll down]  Unfortunately, Biden's willingness to use race as a cudgel to achieve political power has a long history.  For years, Biden huddled with segregationist Democrats when he thought it suited his Senate career.  Then, as Barack Obama's vice president, he switched sides to become a full-on racially obsessed agitator, constantly assailing our country as systemically racist.  In fact, Biden's tenure as vice president oversaw a marked deterioration in race relations in America, in no small part because he and his boss regularly inflamed racial division.  Polling tells the tale.  When Biden took office as vice president in 2008, fully 66 percent of Americans regarded race relations as good, according to New York Times/CBS News polling.  But by the time Biden left the White House eight years later, the popular assessment had flipped, with 69 percent of Americans reporting race relations as poor.  So much for Biden as a "healer."

No time for phony healing.  After liberal media operatives prematurely declared Biden the winner of election 2020 this weekend, Biden's handlers carefully trotted him out in front of the cameras to read a script that proclaimed:  "It's time to put away the harsh rhetoric, to lower the temperature, to see each other again, to listen to each other again."  "Listen"?  Biden's already hatching plans to crack down even harder to silence patriots and dissidents who share their ideas online.  Twitter, which ran censorious interference for Biden throughout the campaign, allows thousands of tweets by users wishing to "assassinate Trump," but deplatforms peaceful conservatives and independent investigators exposing voter fraud, COVID-19 hypocrisy and left-wing violence.

Calls For 'Unity' From Those Who Demonize Opponents As White Supremacists Are Deeply Unserious.  Former Vice President Joe Biden delivered a victory speech Saturday night calling for national unity, insisting the country to move past partisan divides to new heights.  "With the campaign over, it's time to put the anger and the harsh rhetoric behind us and come together as a nation," Biden said celebrating his media-declared victory.  "It's time for Americans to unite.  And to heal."  True to form, however, Biden cast no blame on the loudest voices within his own party or the Trump-deranged media vilifying the president and his supporters as white supremacist enemies of the state at every turn.  In truth, Democrats want Trump-supporting Republicans to heel, not heal, while punishing those billed as "complicit" in the president's supposedly authoritarian regime cutting taxes and opposing Democrats' draconian lockdowns.

The Editor says...
Tell the business owners who had their stores burned and looted in Seattle, Minneapolis, and Kenosha that it's time to heal, and see what they say.  Tell the cops that were blinded by laser pointers that it's time to heal.  The Biden voters rioting in the streets have caused permanent damage in many ways that can't be brushed off with "get over it, unite and heal" messages.

Joe Biden in September:  I will Not Declare Victory Until the Election Is Independently Certified.  During the first presidential debate between President Donald Trump and Joe Biden, Chris Wallace of Fox News asked Biden if he would "pledge not to declare victory until the election is independently certified," to which the former vice president answered, "yes."  "Will you urge your supporters to stay calm while the vote is counted, and will you pledge not to declare victory until the election is independently certified?" asked Wallace of Biden at the first presidential debate in Cleveland, Ohio.  "Yes," answered Biden.  [Video clip]

Low-level mob rule:
CNN Lists Republican Senators Who Have Not 'Acknowledged Biden Is President-Elect'.  Tuesday [11/10/2020] on CNN's "Right Now," host Brianna Keilar featured a list of Republican Senators who have not made public comments "acknowledged Joe Biden is president-elect."

Biden Plans To Create An Army Of 100,000 'Culturally Competent' Contact Tracers.  Despite what the media and Democrats claim, the election is not a done deal yet with several states still dragging out the process and multiple legal challenges being brought by President Trump and state officials to address irregularities that border on outright fraud.  But Biden is a Trojan horse who has nearly breached the city gates and the furious efforts are intensifying to finish the job by ordering Americans to accept their new leader and to surrender through pledging unity than speak out against the nullification of their votes.

Joe Biden's taking a bow for the COVID vaccine.  [Scroll down]  President Trump pointed out that Pfizer, which embraced a $2 billion incentive from the feds to buy vaccines, should they develop one, was part of the vast operation of Operation Warp Speed, cutting useless regulations and red tape on the government side, providing funds, ramping up industrial production, so that the private sector could find a way to destroy the coronavirus.  This was Trump's baby, Trump's unheralded response to COVID-19, the one thing he could do to stop an imported virus, and did.  Biden, though, was the one standing up there on the podium, offering his congratulations to Pfizer, and commanding everyone to go out and wear masks.  No thanks of course to President Trump.  The victory was all his and he was patting the participants on the back.

Biden Campaign Urges Federal Agency to Approve Official Transition of Power.  Americans should be outraged at the liberties Joe Biden and his media cronies have taken following the still-contested results of the 2020 presidential election.  The presumptive president-elect is making speeches and taking victory laps while President Donald Trump's team seeks to uncover all of the glitches and ghosts that may have accounted for Biden's sudden electoral advantage in key states.  Meanwhile, there is mounting pressure for the U.S. General Services Administration, the government body in charge of the transition to a new presidential administration, to release millions of dollars and other resources to the Biden/Harris campaign for their new administration.  Biden is urging the GSA to officially approve the transition of power despite the election still be contested and the Trump administration suing in several states.

The calls for unity are falling on deaf ears, at least for now.  We are now one week out from the general election on November 3.  The election is not settled. [...] Biden is going full steam ahead.  He declared victory and delivered an acceptance speech Saturday night to honking automobile horns and fireworks near his home in Delaware.  During his speech, he made a pitch for unity.  Joe Biden actually delivered the same message that Donald Trump delivered four years ago.  Both men promised to be the president of every American, whether someone voted for him or not.

Unity? Yes, We Will Give You Unity.  You want unity?  That's fair.  We will give you unity:
  [#1]   In unity with you, we will follow your example of the past four years and deny the legitimacy of the 2020 election for the next four years.
  [#2]   In unity with you, we will follow your example of the past four years and investigate the Biden family's every business dealing at home and abroad.
  [#3]   In unity with you, we will follow your example of the past four years and question Biden's mental fitness to hold office.
  [#4]   In unity with you, we will follow your example of the past four years and question Biden's physical fitness to hold office.
  [#5]   In unity with you, we will follow your example of the past four years and blame Biden for every person who dies from the coronavirus.
  [#6]   In unity with you, we will follow your example of the past four years and blame Biden personally for every Black person who is shot anywhere in America.

Voter Fraud Plus Bait-and-Switch Equals Tyranny.  As their candidate for president of the United States, Democrats selected Joe Biden, 77, a 47-year Senate veteran and loser in 1988 and 2008 presidential bids.  In 2020, Biden says he's running for the Senate, doesn't know his location and claims 200 million Americans have died from Covid.  And so on.  Joe may be above ground, but to all but the willfully blind he is completely incapable of carrying out the duties of the presidency, the most difficult job in the world.  Democrats [...] wanted to get somebody else in the office.  That would be Kamala Harris, supposedly qualified as an intersectional "woman of color."  Harris is a favorite of the "composite character" president formerly known as Barry Soetoro, who called her the "best looking attorney general in the country."  That invites a look at the way Harris became attorney general of California, and its relevance to the current campaign.  Democrat queenmaker Willie Brown also thought Harris, 30 years his junior, was good looking.  In a daring act of poontronage, Brown set up Harris in lucrative sinecures and backed her runs for San Francisco district attorney and state attorney general in 2010.

Report: Yale professor to co-chair Biden's COVID task force.  A professor with the Yale School of Medicine will serve as a co-chair of President-elect Joe Biden's task force on the coronavirus, according to a report from CNN.  Marcella Nunez-Smith, associate professor of internal medicine, public health and management and founding director of the Equity Research and Innovation Center, will be among three co-chairs of the group, two sources reportedly told CNN.  Former Surgeon General Vivek Murthy and former Food and Drug Administration Commissioner David Kessler will also helm the group, CNN reported.

Dr. Marcella Nunez-Smith:  Racial discrimination could be the key reason for high mortality rates of COVID-19 among African Americans.  The COVID-19 has claimed over 190, 000 American lives.  There is increasing evidence that African Americans are being disproportionately hit hard by the virus.  Black people continue to experience the highest actual COVID-19 mortality rates nationwide — more than twice as high as the rate for Whites.  The new CDC data — made available after The New York Times sued the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention — reveals a clearer and more complete picture.

Reaction to the article above:
We're Saved!  Biden's COVID Science Team Will Have Intersectional Pokemon Points Galore.  In contrast, high COVID death rates among blacks couldn't possibly have anything to do with problems that blacks could actually do something about on their own initiative, like lose weight or like, as movie director Tyler Perry has suggested, get more Vitamin D during colder seasons.

Congratulations President Kamala.  The kindest thing we can say about Joe Biden is that he is a proven scatterbrain whose physical and cognitive daily life depends on his wife's vigilant handling of his word and foot.  She is forever present wherever he is: whispering to him his forgotten word, and showing him where podium and exit door is.  Simply, she is his guide-dog and theatrical standby coaching him from the wings.  And for all we know, Biden may also already be incontinent and needing adult diapers under his pajamas and Mrs. Biden here plays the role of personal diaper-changer too.  This is the pre-election status of our new president, Joe Biden.  But what of post-election?  How will our handicapped and dependent president manage complex state affairs and even more complex foreign policies for the next four years?  He is already 77 years of age and clearly his cognitive abilities will continue to naturally diminish with age, with no prospect whatsoever of their return to robust elasticity.

Rhodes: 'Foreign Leaders Already Having Phone Calls with Joe Biden,' Same Act for Which Michael Flynn Was Investigated.  Ben Rhodes, former deputy national security adviser during the Obama administration, claimed on Monday [11/9/2020] that "foreign leaders are already having phone calls with Joe Biden."  Gen. Mike Flynn, the first national security adviser for President Donald Trump, was investigated under an arcane law called the Logan Act for having precisely such communications with foreign leaders before Trump was sworn in.  Former Vice President Joe Biden has been accused of suggesting the Logan Act as a pretext for investigating Flynn, although other Obama administration officials claim the idea did not come from Biden.

Less than half in new poll believe Biden is legitimate winner of election; a third say Trump won.  More than a third of registered voters believe Donald Trump legitimately won the presidential election, according to a new Just the News Daily Poll with Scott Rasmussen.  Less than half of all respondents — 49% — believe Joe Biden legitimately won the race, while 34% said they believe Trump won the election, and 16% said they are not sure who really won.  Of Republican respondents, 77% said they think Trump is the legitimate winner, while just 12% of Republicans believe Biden is the legitimate winner.  About a quarter of independent voters also said they believe Trump won.  Among Democrats, 87% think that Biden is the winner.  Rasmussen noted that the survey was conducted from Thursday night [11/5/2020] until Saturday early afternoon.

Biden transition team not ruling out legal action if Trump admin doesn't cooperate.  The Biden team will consider taking legal action in transitioning from Trump's administration as long as the president continues to refuse to cooperate after the election.  A transition official told Fox News that several options are on the table to move forward with Biden's transfer to power with Trump not living up to the law.

The Editor says...
The election is being contested.  There is no need for "transition official[s]" if there is to be no transition.  At this point, no state has certified Joe Biden as the winner of the election.

Mexico, Brazil, Russia and China hold off on congratulating Joe Biden.  A number of countries, including Russia and China, are holding off congratulating Joe Biden on his 2020 presidential victory because President Trump has not conceded and continues to pursue legal challenges surrounding the vote.  Russian President Vladimir Putin will remain silent about the results, the Kremlin said on Monday [11/9/2020].  "We think it appropriate to wait for the official vote count," Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters.  Peskov said there are differences between 2020 and 2016, when Putin congratulated Trump on his victory over Hillary Clinton.  "You can see that there are certain legal procedures that have been announced by the current president.  That is why the situations are different and we therefore think it appropriate to wait for an official announcement," he said.  Beijing is also waiting until the legal issues are resolved.

Newly appointed Biden coronavirus task force member accused of profiting off of lockdowns he advocated for.  Presumptive President-elect Joe Biden named Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel to his coronavirus task force.  Emaunel has been accused of profiting off lockdowns he has advocated for earlier this year.  Emanuel serves as a consultant for COVID-19 RECoVERY Consulting, which works with businesses on reopening and operating during the coronavirus pandemic by navigating laws regarding the virus.  The work earned him the ire of former New York Times reporter Alex Berenson in September, who said Emanuel was profiting off the "lockdown that he's pushing."  "Zeke is doing good by doing well and doing well by doing good.  He has his own consulting firm where he consults with people for profit to make money from giving them recommendations about how to get around and get past the lockdown advice that he's pushing.  The lockdown that he's pushing," Berenson told Fox News's Tucker Carlson in September.

Biden Prepares His Virus Response Which Looks Awfully... Familiar.  Over the weekend, I reviewed Joe Biden's victory speech and pointed out his claim that he was going to roll up his sleeves and get to work on getting the pandemic "under control."  What was missing from his remarks was any hint about what he was going to do to accomplish this.  I somehow doubt Uncle Joe reads Hot Air, but he came out yesterday with an attempt to answer the questions I raised.  He set forth a few of the steps he planned to take in terms of the virus, at least in general terms, along with naming some people he planned to assign to his pandemic "working group."  Let's see if we can spot the brilliant new ideas he will be deploying to save us all from the plague.

GSA Responds to Biden Campaign: 'Ascertainment Has Not yet Been Made' on Power Transfer.  As the campaign for Joe Biden attempts to push the General Services Administration (GSA) to approve a transfer of power, the agency said that it hasn't made a final assessment of the situation.  "An ascertainment has not yet been made.  GSA and its administrator will continue to abide by, and fulfill, all requirements under the law," a spokesperson with the GSA told The Epoch Times on Nov. 9.  The agency said that GSA administrator Emily Murphy will only initiate the transition when a "clear winner is clear, based on the process laid out in the Constitution."  "The administrator's ascertainment is done for the purposes of making services provided by the [Presidential Transition Act] available," the spokesperson said.

Keep Fighting in the Courts, and Start Fighting the Libertarian Party.  Through it all, the media ran interference for Biden and the Democrats.  Biden is a lifelong racist, with the most remarkable of blatantly racist comments reflecting racist beliefs.  Yet he was portrayed as an opponent of "systemic racism" — itself a bogus fraud in a country where all races have an equal opportunity to succeed and flourish.  He is a public liar and has lied brazenly for half a century, even about his own biography.  Whole swaths of his family are engaged in massive financial corruption.  Yet the media protected him, buried the news of his and their evil, and portrayed him as a smiling Uncle Joe.  He was able to hide for so long in his basement because he had CNN, MSNBC, ABC, NBC, CBS, PBS, the New York Times, and the Washington Post doing his campaigning for him.

Class Conflict Will Cripple the Democrats.  If Biden were to prevail and be sworn in as President on January 20, 2021, it will be solely due to his party executing the greatest fraud in American political history, along with considerable help.  The Democrats' co-conspirators in the Ruling Class provide financial and media collaboration, while the radical American left, with their organizing ability and willingness to unabashedly break election laws to justify the ends, provide the muscle.  [Tweet]  Saturday night, after the media proclaimed that Biden was elected, demonstrators in the nation's capital chanted "Burn it down!"  Joe Biden would not have any national mandate nor the support of the bulk of the citizenry.  Due to his cognitive decline and inability to viscerally connect with the people, he will not be able to unite the nation behind him on any issue.  Thus, he would be, in effect, the prisoner of and a foil for those responsible for carrying him over the finish line:  The Ruling Class and the American left[.]

If Elected, Biden Will Wield 'Phone and Pen' with Flurry of Executive Orders.  The far-left Washington Post reports that if Joe Biden wins the presidential election, he intends to bring back the Obama era phone and pen approach with a flurry of executive orders.  "President-elect Joe Biden is planning to quickly sign a series of executive orders after being sworn into office on Jan. 20, immediately forecasting that the country's politics have shifted and that his presidency will be guided by radically different priorities," the far-left Post reports, and does so inaccurately by referring to Joe Biden is "president-elect."  Joe Biden is not president-elect.  Only the corporate media have said he won the election, which is still going through a series of recounts and lawsuits.  You are not "president-elect" until the electoral college meets and confirms your victory.

The Editor says...
The executive orders signed on Joe Biden's first day as president — if that happens — will be written by somebody else (lobbyists, staffers, and party bosses) and then pushed in front of the senile president for his signature.  Five minutes later, Joe Biden won't be able to tell anyone what he just signed.  Thus, Mr. Biden will be a mere appliance, to be used by unelected members of the White House staff.  One after another.  Immediately after assuming his position in the Oval Office.  One might reasonably ask, "What's the rush?"

Photo of Malia Obama's Credit Card Next to What Appears to be Cocaine Released Amid Hunter Biden Laptop Scandal.  Amid the continuing info-dump from Hunter Biden's notorious laptop, GNews has released what appears to be photos of former President Barack Obama's daughter, Malia Obama's credit card with what is being claimed to be lines of cocaine.  The images are said to have originated from Hunter Biden's laptop, and clearly show Malia Obama's name on the credit card, but others claim these photos were not connected to the laptop dump and from a separate incident in 2019 where supposed hackers leaked the picture of the credit card.

Media Declares Joe Biden Winner of 2020 Election.  The strategy of using of mail-in ballots to structurally steal the 2020 election predictably contained an inevitable series of events to support it.  The media's preemptive declaration of a Biden victory is one cascading domino in that very predictable sequence.  The media effort is to build a wave narrative strong and heavy enough to block any sunlight upon the fraud perpetrated by regional election officials.  The statistical improbability of the U.S. election outcome are glaring; there are hundreds of examples that just don't make sense.  Thus the need for the media narrative becomes more important.  Perhaps the most unnerving aspect to this election fraud is knowing that Joe Biden is merely a puppet for a group of political and deep state interests; the Milli Vanilli candidate with a giggling high-school-minded VP.

Media Calls the Race For Joe Biden But Is it Really Over?  The television networks have called the 2020 presidential election, announcing Joe Biden as the winner in Pennsylvania — giving him, in theory, enough electoral college votes to become the next president.  But is it over?  Election officials have yet to call the win, and the Trump campaign has several legal challenges in play.  Networks rushed to the airwaves to announce that Biden had taken the 20 electoral votes in PA less than 15 minutes before Trump's legal team was to hold a press conference in Philadelphia, PA.  Trump campaign attorneys represented by Rudy Giuliani spoke about irregularities in the voting and ballot-counting process.  Leftist media outlets immediately launched sensationalized headlines such as "You're Fired" but the president vowed in a statement that the fight is not yet over.

MSM's declarations do NOT mean Joe Biden will be president.  Mainstream media outlets are calling the election for Joe Biden.  To millions of Americans, this seems to be "game over" for the Trump campaign.  They're mainstream media, after all.  They'd know, right?  Actually, yes, they would know.  And the fact that they DO know the irregularities associated with the voting and are still willing to "call it" tells us one thing without a doubt.  They weren't just shilling for Joe Biden.  They were and are directly involved with this attempted coup against a lawfully elected President of the United States.  The fact that they're now spreading the lie is meaningless.

Joe Biden Wins U.S. Presidency After Bitter Contest With Trump.  Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. has defeated Donald Trump to become the 46th U.S. president, unseating the incumbent with a pledge to unify and mend a nation reeling from a worsening pandemic, faltering economy and deep political divisions.  Biden's victory came after the Associated Press, CNN and NBC showed him winning Pennsylvania and Nevada and gaining more than the 270 Electoral College votes needed to secure the presidency.

The Editor says...
Biden has not been officially certified as the winner of the presidential election in any state.  The news media declared him the winner on a Saturday morning, knowing that no lawsuits will be decided or even considered before Monday.  By then, the news media will have repeated the lie (that Biden won) so many times, it will have become "common knowledge."

Text of statement from President Donald Trump.  Text of a statement from President Donald Trump on the election result:  "We all know why Joe Biden is rushing to falsely pose as the winner, and why his media allies are trying so hard to help him:  they don't want the truth to be exposed.  The simple fact is this election is far from over.  Joe Biden has not been certified as the winner of any states, let alone any of the highly contested states headed for mandatory recounts, or states where our campaign has valid and legitimate legal challenges that could determine the ultimate victor.  In Pennsylvania, for example, our legal observers were not permitted meaningful access to watch the counting process.  Legal votes decide who is president, not the news media.  Beginning Monday [11/9/2020], our campaign will start prosecuting our case in court to ensure election laws are fully upheld and the rightful winner is seated.  The American People are entitled to an honest election:  that means counting all legal ballots, and not counting any illegal ballots. [...]"

Trump Campaign Refuses to Concede as Networks Call Election for Joe Biden.  The Trump campaign refused to concede defeat in the presidential race on Saturday [11/7/2020] after networks projected a win for Joe Biden.  The Democratic nominee is projected to win at least 290 electoral votes, with victories predicted in Pennsylvania and Nevada, according to the Associated Press.

TV networks do not determine the winner of a presidential race.  The Electoral College does that.  TV networks can issue projections, and "declare" the winner, but that's not official.

Joe Biden will become the oldest president in American history, a title previously held by Ronald Reagan.  Joe Biden has defeated Donald Trump and will become the oldest president in American history, a title previously held by Ronald Reagan.  President-elect Biden, who will turn 78 on Nov. 20, was born in 1942 during World War II.  The oldest sitting president in U.S. history was Ronald Reagan, who was 77 when he left office in 1989.

Biden calls for unity, healing after capturing the presidency.  President-elect Joe Biden called on a deeply divided United States to come together and "heal" on Saturday [11/7/2020] moments after he was declared the winner of the presidential election.  In a statement, Biden said he was "honored and humbled by the trust the American people have placed in" him and his running mate, Vice President-elect Kamala Harris.

The Editor says...
Mr. Biden was "declared the winner of the presidential election" by the news media.  That does not mean that he officially won the election.  Trump has not conceded, recounts are pending, lawsuits abound, and any number of things may happen before (and during) the Electoral College vote.

Media call election for Biden.  With tens of thousands of outstanding mail-in ballots waiting to be counted, Joe Biden led the presidential race in Pennsylvania by 34,243 votes on Saturday.  Mailed ballots have overwhelmingly favored the former vice president in the state, so most major news outlets assumed Biden's lead would widen as the count finished, giving him the state's 20 Electoral College votes and enough to cross the 270-vote threshold to win the presidency.  Is it really over?  The Trump campaign has lawsuits pending over the vote in Pennsylvania and could request recounts in individual counties.  As of Saturday, Biden's margin in the state hovered at .51 percent — just above the .5 percent that would trigger an automatic recount under state law.

Joe Biden Claims 'Mandate' But Stops Short of Declaring Victory.  Joe Biden appeared late Friday evening and claimed he received a "mandate" from American voters, but he stopped short of declaring victory.  "We don't have a final declaration of victory yet," he said, and argued the numbers tell "a clear and convincing story:  We're going to win this race."  Biden touted his new-found leads in Georgia and Pennsylvania.  He said he is winning Arizona, a first for a Democrat in 24 years.  Similarly, he is the first Democrat to claim victory in Georgia in 28 years.  He said he is on his way to "over 300 Electoral College votes."

Communist Chinese State Media Gushes Over Joe Biden After Election.  Communist Chinese State media is currently sharing their opinion on the 2020 election and they couldn't be happier with how well former Vice President Joe Biden is doing.  According to editor at China's state-run Global Times Hu Xijin, former Vice President Joe Biden is a super star and is very admired by Chinese internet users see him as a "tenacious man."

Sleepy Campaign Strategy Mystery Solved.  How could their candidate win when he basically refused to campaign?  We now know the answer.  Biden didn't really campaign because he — or at least his handlers — knew the fix was in.  They knew that compliant polls would cook the numbers to show that Biden was 10, 15, or even 17 points ahead nationally and in all the battleground states even though he was more or less tied or even behind.  The psychological, which means the political effect of that, was to insinuate an element of unreality into the whole campaign and to present the public, and the pundits who were there to spoonfeed them, with a false narrative about the performance and therefore the prospects of the two candidates.  The committee fielding Biden also knew that the media was almost totally on board with a Biden candidacy.  This was clear during the campaign when an overwhelming majority of media coverage was both hostile to Trump and almost comically careful about Biden.

Thoughts on Where We Stand Now.  For Republicans, the future is bright.  2022 shapes up as a great year.  Beyond the advantage that the out-party always enjoys in a new president's first midterms, the Democrats will have to come to grips with the fact that they nominated and elected a man who is not able, either physically or mentally, to discharge the duties of his office.  What will Biden's White House calendar look like?  8:00 breakfast, 9:00 lid?  By November 2022, Biden may not even be president.  Republicans should be able to take the House and expand their lead in the Senate, where the landscape will be much more favorable. [...] The Democratic Party will be in a state of civil war for the next two years, with its bitterly opposed factions vying for influence in an administration ostensibly run by a man who has little idea what is going on.

Biden launches presidential transition website as he nears 270 electoral votes.  Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden on Wednesday [11/4/2020] launched a transition website as he neared the 270 electoral votes needed to defeat President Trump.  The site [...] says "Biden-Harris Transition" against a solid blue background.  "The American people will determine who will serve as the next President of the United States.  Votes are still being counted in several states around the country," an unsigned message on the site says.

How the Bidens Made Off With Millions in Chinese Cash.  The Senate's report on Hunter Biden's activities released several months ago, which was spun by the New York Times as having shown "no evidence of wrongdoing," nevertheless had several important gaps in the business activities of the troubled son of the former vice president.  Draft legal documents and 2017 bank records obtained by The American Conservative show at least $5 million was transferred to Hunter and Jim Biden from companies associated with the Chinese conglomerate CEFC, with millions coming after the company had come under legal scrutiny both in the United States and China.  CEFC official Patrick Ho was arrested in November 2017 and charged by the Southern District of New York with corruption, and was convicted last year.  In addition, on or about March 1, 2018, CEFC Chairmen Ye Jianming was arrested in China for economic crimes and hasn't been seen since.  CEFC assets in China were seized by Chinese state agencies.  In the U.S., major beneficiaries were Hunter and Jim Biden.

Recap and overview:
The Hunter Biden Corruption Scandal Is a Reckoning for the Legacy Media.  Americans are likely familiar with the basic narrative of the Hunter Biden-Burisma scandal because it featured prominently in the House Democrats' impeachment against Trump.  While Joe Biden served as the Obama administration's point person on Ukraine, his son Hunter — who had no experience in fossil fuels — was named to the board of a notoriously corrupt Ukrainian gas company, Burisma.  The VP's son reportedly raked in $83,000 each month for the gig.  Later, his father pressured the president of Ukraine to fire a prosecutor who says he was investigating Burisma at the time.  The new emails from Hunter Biden's laptop appear to demonstrate that Joe Biden met with a Burisma executive months before he pressured Ukraine to fire the prosecutor.  While Joe Biden was the Obama point person on China, Hunter Biden flew to the Middle Kingdom and entered into many lucrative deals with the Chinese Communist Party and Chinese state-owned businesses.  Hunter's deals arguably endangered American military and nuclear secrets, and the Obama administration went soft on China at the time.

Disposable Joe.  [Scroll down]  It highlights the fact that Joe Biden has been living on the mere idea of plausibility for most of his career, never most so than in this election cycle.  Even before he went into politics he has been stealing ideas, wholesale chunks of speeches and written words.  He has become uber wealthy on a senate salary that has never gone higher than $175,000 a year.  His immediate family has accumulated fabulous wealth through government contracts and no show jobs with organizations in countries Joe has had responsibility for in his posts and senator and vice president.  He has skated by with all of that because of the fog of plausibility conferred by his position, political correctness and his connections to the power brokers of the Democrat party.  Nobody in a position to do anything about it, it seems, has been interested in truly evaluating the actuality of his plausibility.  If this is all very insubstantial, it is even more mysterious that he is now so close to becoming the what would plausibly be the first temporary president of the United States.  Finally, in the twilight of his life, dispoability has become his defining attribute.

Joe Biden Is a Bald-Faced, Lying Slimeball.  [Scroll down]  Morally, we're at an inflection point as well.  Because while Joe Biden ambles about the country, now that political realities have forced him from his basement playroom claiming we're in a "battle for the soul of America," the limited truth in what he's saying cuts opposite to what he means.  Joe Biden is the moral reprobate in this race, not Donald Trump.  His manifest corruption aside, Joe Biden is the most aggressively mendacious, insultingly dishonest and shamelessly contemptuous liar in modern American political history.  Biden's campaign has told so many lies one often can't quite understand what the point of the lying is.

Joe confuses his two granddaughters and then introduces one of them as his dead son.  Joe Biden made an embarrassing gaffe during his final pit stop on election day as he introduced his granddaughter Finnegan as his late son Beau Biden, then called her by her cousin Natalie's name, before finally correctly introducing Natalie as Beau's daughter to a crowd of supporters in Philadelphia.  'This is my son, Beau Biden who a lot of you helped elect to the Senate in Delaware,' he said as he put his arm around Finnegan's shoulder.  He then continued with the slip-up by calling her Natalie and saying she is Beau's daughter.  Natalie, 16, is Beau's daughter while Finnegan, 20, is actually the daughter of Biden's other son Hunter.

In Election Day flubs, Joe Biden says son Beau was senator, mixes up granddaughters.  Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden on Tuesday made a pair of Election Day gaffes during a rare in-person campaign stop in Philadelphia, saying his late son Beau Biden was a senator and mixing up his granddaughters' names.  Just hours before potentially becoming the nation's oldest-ever president-elect, Biden spoke about his family to a crowd of supporters in swing state Pennsylvania's largest city.  "This is my son, Beau Biden, who a lot of you helped elect to the Senate in Delaware, this is my granddaughter Natalie — no wait, I've got the wrong one.  This is Natalie, this is Beau's daughter," Biden said as he introduced his granddaughters.

Report: If Media Declare Biden Winner, He Intends to 'Address Nation' as 'New Leader'.  Former Vice President Joe Biden will "address the nation as its new leader, even if President Trump continues to fight in court" if the media declare him the mathematical winner on Election Day.  "We're not really concerned about what Donald Trump says," Biden campaign manager Jen O'Malley Dillon told reporters Monday.  "We're going to use our data, our understanding of where this is headed, and make sure that the vice president is addressing the American people."

Biden's last-minute Hail Mary on gun control.  For months now, disappointed liberals have been scratching their heads and bemoaning one question hanging over the 2020 elections.  Why aren't Democrats talking about gun control?  It was all the rage last year, but now you don't hear a peep about if from almost any of their candidates and it wasn't even mentioned at the Democratic National Convention.  The reasons seemed fairly obvious to me and it looked as if the issue had been put to rest for this cycle.  But then, only this weekend, Democratic candidate Joe Biden broke the mold and ended the silence.  His Twitter account chimed in, seemingly out of nowhere, with a promise to infringe on your Second Amendment rights if he's sworn in as the 46th president.

Trump Campaign Airs an Amazing Biden Montage During Final Wisconsin Rally.  Kenosha, Wisconsin.  It's a town that made headlines earlier this year when riots broke out there following the police shooting of Jacob Blake. [...] The city was one of President Donald Trump's final campaign stops on the eve of Election Day, in hopes of making voters there realize they deserve better.  One of the ways his campaign drew a contrast between the president's leadership and the leadership of Joe Biden included a video montage of the former vice president.  Their video did a phenomenal job calling into question Biden's cognitive abilities, something that many have speculated over the course of this election cycle.  Just in the first third of 2020, Biden had 18 major gaffes where he forgot important information, like what office he's running for, who his wife is and what the Preamble of the Declaration of Independence states.  Since then, he's had plenty more, some more serious than others.  Remember:  Biden told Charlamagne tha God "You ain't black" if you vote for President Trump.  That, in itself, shows how much Democrats take for granted the black vote.  That's part of the reason so many rappers have stepped out in support of President Trump.

What to Make of DOJ Announcement That Hunter Biden Is Under Investigation — Just Money Laundering or More?  Joe Biden is so hopelessly compromised that if he happens to win the election on Tuesday, when he's confronted with what the intelligence community knows about his overseas entanglements, he'll be forced to decline to take the oath of office.  He'll step aside in favor of Kamala Harris, and the Democrat party will have their first female minority President — which has always been the goal — and not a septuagenarian recycled white male politician with a room temperature IQ and a troubling history of overt racism.  The "support" that Joe Biden thinks he has in the party will suddenly evaporate and he'll be standing alone in an empty room he thought was full of supporters — courtesy of Barack Obama.

Biden Reminds Americans He Plans to Shred the Second Amendment.  Amid the pandemic, violence, rioting, looting, and the "defund the police" movement, gun ownership in America has soared, with some estimates saying there are 5 million first-time gun owners so far this year.  That could mean a new and "formidable" voting bloc has formed.  "From now on, we expect millions of new gun owners to pay closer attention to candidates, and reject those who would trample on their Second Amendment rights," Alan Gottlieb, chairman of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, said in a statement this summer.  It's curious then that just days before the election, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden made abundantly clear that he plans to trample the Second Amendment if elected.

If Joe Biden is dragged over the finish line, Democrats will quickly drop him.  For the media establishment that spent the last year and a half resolutely ignoring Biden's long history of lying, bad judgment and allowing close relatives to sell his name to questionable foreign entities, not to mention his creeptastic behavior around women and little girls, President Biden presents a couple of problems.  One:  Biden was a senator starting when Nixon was still president and is well-liked by that institution.  It's said that Biden is even pals with Mitch McConnell, and though the press can forgive Uncle Joe's history of being palsy-walsy with fellow Democrat and onetime Exalted Cyclops of the Ku Klux Klan Robert Byrd, it can't abide the idea of Biden working with a guy who shepherded Amy Coney Barrett onto the Supreme Court.

Sleepy Joe Biden Invites Anti-Fracking Lady Gaga to Final 'Drive In' Rally in Pennsylvania and It's a Total Flop.  Sleepy and creepy Joe Biden invited Pop star Lady Gaga to his final 'drive in' rally held in Pennsylvania but Lady Gaga is anti-fracking.  It's as if Biden is trying to lose the race.

Biden Family Corruption Does Matter.  The conventional wisdom — on both right and left, among political strategists in both parties — is that voters care much more about the economy and COVID-19.  That's correct.  They do, and the polls show it.  But that doesn't mean the scandals are irrelevant.  They matter politically for several reasons, all of them bad for Joe Biden.  They imply the following:
  •   Biden is just another grifting politician who got rich in office;
  •   Uncle Joe's persona as average, lower-middle class guy is just a cover story;
  •   His self-enrichment makes him the "Washington Swamp" incarnate, no different from all the other politicians turned lobbyists; and
  •   The media is so crooked it won't honestly tell the public about these problems, lest they vote the wrong way.

Senior Retired CIA Officer:  The Laptop Is Real And So Is The Corruption It Lays Bare.  On October 19, 2020, a group of fifty former "intelligence officers" signed on to a letter branding the New York Post's story about Hunter Biden's laptop as having all the hallmarks of "Russian disinformation."  The letter was carefully caveated, no doubt out of necessity because otherwise many of the signatories would not have agreed to put their names on the document. [...] To my knowledge, none of the fifty individuals who signed the letter in question has seen the contents of Hunter's laptop.  I have.  I have had unfettered access to it for days and continue to do so.  Here is my take.  There is no question that the material on the hard drive I have reviewed belongs to Hunter Biden.  It is filled with emails, documents, text messages, and images that cover a span of many years.  All of these have the associated metadata.  Most of the emails are to known individuals with known email accounts.  Anyone who has ever done even a cursory forensic examination of a laptop seized from a terrorist safe house or taken from a hostile intelligence officer would not believe for a second that all of this information could somehow be fabricated.  Any attempt to do so would be detected in almost no time once the laptop was put under review.  As noted above, what is on the hard drive is not a few emails.  It is the entire contents of Hunter Biden's laptop containing data compiled over years.

Democrats are masking Biden's frailty.  [Scroll down]  After Biden had shouted his way through a short teleprompter speech, Obama came back onstage, perhaps to escort him off, because Biden did not seem to know where he was.  Obama mimed an elbow pump with his former VP to signal they should leave the stage and then quietly whispered to him, after which it dawned on Biden he'd forgotten his mask, not for the first time.  When your entire campaign is about mask-shaming Trump supporters, it's not a forgivable lapse.  Poor Biden looked like a chastened schoolboy as he fumbled through his folder and all his pockets looking for that pesky piece of cloth.  He walked back to the lectern and searched, to no avail, before fumbling through his pockets again.  Finally, he found the mask in his left trouser pocket, held it aloft sheepishly at Obama, and placed it on his face.  But then he paused and looked in seeming confusion at the microphone lying on the lectern where he'd left it.  He picked it up and held it briefly to his masked face before laying it down again and rejoining Obama.

The Bidens: A Delaware mafia.  [Scroll down]  Hunter was a principal in pay-to-play on a global scale.  Recent electronic and documented evidence confirms years of scuttlebutt that suggested that Hunter Biden, and Uncle Jim, were trading and profiting on the name and office of the "big guy."  Throughout, Joe claims he knew nothing of any family pay-to-play hustles in Oman, Luxembourg, Romania, Kazakhstan, Ukraine, Russia, Guatemala, and China.  The ignorance defense is an instant replay of Clinton family tactics; deny, deny, deny, and when denials are no longer plausible, depend on Deep State Democrat Party Beltway hacks to cover or come to the rescue. [...] Withal, the Biden exposé is, by any metric, a day late and a billion dollars short — at best a pyrrhic victory for critics.  The Justice Department and the FBI have had the goods on Biden for some time, yet official Washington is still mute and inert.  Inertia at justice is a symptom of a much larger problem:  institutionalized federal double standards.  A Republican might be indicted by an ambiguous phone call while Democrats, like the Clintons and Bidens, get a pass on obvious felonies.

Evidence of Biden Payments from China Support Tony Bobulinski and Show the Bidens Made Millions Swindling America.  The MSM, Democrats and the Biden Campaign are complaining that the Tony Bobulinski story is a lie.  They want Americans to believe that Hunter and Joe Biden are men of character and Bobulinski is the man lacking integrity.  Unfortunately for this corrupt group, we have evidence that proves Bobulinski right.

Court File Shows Joe Biden Listed as Possible Witness With Son in Fraud Case.  A federal judge named Joe Biden as a possible "witness" along with his son Hunter in a criminal fraud case last year that ended in the convictions of two of Hunter's business partners, according to little-noticed court documents.  The Democratic presidential candidate's appearance on a witness list casts new doubt on his claims he knew nothing about his son's shady business dealings.  Hunter Biden blamed one of his convicted partners — Devon Archer — for his father's name appearing on a list of potential witnesses in a juror questionnaire in the case, which was filed Jan. 11, 2019.  In a 47-minute recording recovered from his abandoned laptop, an agitated Hunter can be heard grousing about calls he's been getting from his father, who apparently was upset with the developments as he prepared to launch his campaign for the White House.

He's got one foot in the nursing home already:
Barack Obama had to call Joe Biden three times before he finally emerged at Michigan rally, then had to remind him to put his mask back on and help guide him off the stage.  'Sleepy' Joe Biden was caught napping twice during a rally in Michigan on Saturday, missing his cue to appear on stage and then forgetting his mask as he walked off it.  The 77-year-old was speaking at a rally in Flint alongside Barack Obama when he suffered the 'senior moments', just the latest in a series of gaffes that have dogged his presidential run and raised questions over his mental capacity.  The first came as Obama had just finished warming up for his old Vice President, and tried to welcome him to the stage by shouting: 'My friend, the next President of the United State of America, Joe Biden!'  But Biden was nowhere to be seen, prompting Obama to shout for him again.

Biden Will Impose Highest Capital Gains Tax Rate Since Jimmy Carter in 1977.  Joe Biden wants to impose the highest capital gains tax rate since the Jimmy Carter era known for its economic stagnation.  Biden wants to take the current capital gains tax rate of 20 percent and double it to 39.6 percent.  That's the highest rate since 1977, when the highest possible capital gains rate was 39.875 percent.

Eight hard questions for the Democrats.  A malleable, mediocre, now-senile, angry hack politician with decades of non-accomplishment and with a history of personal and family corruption.  A record of personal nastiness and lying and fantasy stories, of personal subservience to special interests (Delaware's banks) and exponential enrichment of his family through obviously corrupt multimillion dollar bribes from China, Ukraine, and Russia.  Biden is just a temporary front man.

Summarizing Joe Biden.  Biden will be 78 this month.  For more than a year he has been exhibiting a loss of mental acuity necessary to performing the job of president.  At least twice in the last week he's been unable to form comprehensible sentences.  Just a few days ago, in a stump speech apparently talking about Iran, Biden said, "I'll lead an effective strategy to mobilize Truaninonashufodopressure."  He apparently meant "true international pressure," but couldn't manage to get the words out.  A vote for Biden is a vote for Kamala Harris ousting him in 2021 under the 25th Harris is the most radically liberal member of the Senate.

'Joe Biden is a pathological liar'.  [Scroll down]  President Trump may be a pugnacious man with many flaws that he doesn't even care to hide, but Joe Biden is a proven, habitual, unrepentant fraud and a pathological liar of the highest order.  Civil rights activist Shaun King says this.  "Since the early 1970s, Joe Biden has been a serial liar ..."  Mr. King goes on to explain.  "In 1987, when Joe Biden was running for president for the very first time, his campaign got swallowed up in a swarm of lies that [he] told about himself all over the country.  First, Biden was caught plagiarizing a famous speech from, then, Britsh Labor Pary Leader Neil Kinnock — including parts of the speech that came straight from Kinnock's personal life that were not true for Biden.  "Then, he plagiarized yet another speech from the late Robert Kennedy and another from JFK and another from Hubert Humphrey ... Soon, it was discovered that Biden had not just plagiarized those four speeches, but had lied about academic awards [that he never earned], lied about scholarships [that he never received], and lied about his ranking in law school [stating he graduated in the top half of his class when in fact he finished 76th out of 85]."

Biden Invents Yet Another New Word, To Join 'Trunalimunumaprzure'.  Here's Joe telling people that he doesn't need them to help him get elected, that he needs them once he gets elected.  [Video clip]  Then he came up with another new word, "Barack and I think it's a right for people to have badakathcare."  [Video clip]

Joe Biden Says Americans Have a Right to 'Badakathcare'.  Former Vice President Joe Biden suffered yet another brain freeze Saturday [10/31/2020], proclaiming he and former President Barack Obama believe Americans have a right to "badakathcare" during a rally in Flint, Michigan.

Joe Biden's silence on Hunter's emails speaks volumes.  Ed Koch never missed an opportunity to tell his side of a story.  When a newspaper or television report said something about him he saw as wrong or unfair, the late New York mayor invariably fired off a letter of complaint.  The habit was so pronounced that I once asked him why he bothered, especially when the issue was minor.  His answer:  If you don't object, your silence is assumed to be agreement.  Attention, Joe Biden.  This is why your silence in the face of serious allegations of corruption is highly suspicious.  It makes you look guilty.  If you are innocent, why don't you say so?

National security nightmare of Hunter Biden's abandoned laptop.  The son of the man expected by many to be America's next President abandoned a laptop containing a treasure trove of top-secret material, including his father's private emails and mobile phone numbers, The Mail on Sunday can reveal.  In an astonishing lapse, Hunter Biden chose to protect his MacBook Pro computer — crammed with what an IT expert last night described as a 'national security nightmare' and 'classic blackmail material' — with a single, simple password:  Hunter02.  Remarkably, the 50-year-old businessman and self-confessed drug addict took the machine to a back-street IT store in Delaware in April 2019 to get it repaired — yet never returned to collect it.

Biden's Plausible Deniability Isn't Plausible.  [Scroll down]  It's up to you to decide if this financial arrangement was wrong or not, but let's see what Joe Biden himself said about the arrangement around the same time of his first denial.  "No one in my family will have an office in the White House, will sit in on meetings as if they are a cabinet member, will, in fact, have any business relationship with anyone that relates to a foreign corporation or a foreign country.  Period.  Period.  End of story[.]"  So, his son did nothing wrong, but if he's president, he won't allow his son to do the same thing that he just said wasn't wrong.  I mean... if it wasn't wrong when he was vice president, why wouldn't he allow it if he were to be president?

Biden: 'Nothing to' Hunter Biden Laptop Story, 'My Son's an Honorable Man'.  During an interview with Iowa's KCRG on Friday, 2020 Democratic presidential nominee former Vice President Joe Biden stated that "there's nothing to any" of the "smear" stories about his son, Hunter's laptop and "my son's an honorable man."  KCRG Anchor and Managing Editor Beth Malicki asked, "So, what about the Americans who really, today, only want me to ask you about Hunter Biden's laptop, how are you going to get them to see that you are fighting for them, when they're so dead set against you?"  Biden responded, "By the way, there's nothing to any of that, nothing to any of that.  It's all a smear.  Every major outfit, every serious investigator has pointed out that this is a smear.  This is classic Trump.  We have four days left, and all of a sudden, there's a laptop. [...]"

The Editor says...
The laptop was known to the FBI almost a year ago, not just four days, and the contents have been shown to be authentic.  There is no reason to ask Joe Biden any questions, except to show that all his answers are untrue.

Report: FBI Opened Money Laundering Investigation into Hunter Biden and His Associates.  A Justice Department official confirmed Thursday [10/29/2020] that the FBI opened a criminal investigation into Hunter Biden and his business associates focused on money-laundering, and that it remains "open and active," Sinclair investigative reporter James Rosen reported on Twitter.  The FBI has had possession of Hunter Biden's laptop since December of 2019.  A recently leaked audio recording allegedly from Hunter Biden's laptop features the younger Biden discussing in a phone call his business involvement with a "[...] spy chief of China, and how both he and his father Joe Biden have been named as witnesses in a Southern District of New York criminal case.

Hunter Biden's Laptop Is "National Security Nightmare" With Personal Cell Numbers for Clintons, Obama Admin Officials, More.  The Daily Mail on Sunday morning [11/1/2020] (UK time) published additional details of what is contained on Hunter Biden's "National Security Nightmare" laptop, and statements from forensic experts vouching for its authenticity.  The laptop was first reported on by the New York Post, and almost immediately Twitter and Facebook worked to scrub the story from its platforms and to cast doubt upon its authenticity.  In the Daily Mail report, experts say that the material on the laptop wasn't encrypted or protected by even basic two-factor authentication, and was only secured by the password "Hunter 02."

The Editor says...
You can bet someone has scolded Hunter about his weak password by now, and encouraged him to change it.  So now it's probably "Hunter 03."

Feds reportedly seized second Hunter Biden laptop in February.  A second laptop belonging to Hunter Biden was taken by the feds back in February.  The computer was found in the Massachusetts offices of celebrity psychiatrist Dr. Keith Ablow during a raid and seized by Drug Enforcement Administration agents, according to a new report from NBC.  Ablow's medical license was suspended after he was accused of sexually exploiting patients and other professional misconduct.  He has not been charged with a crime and has denied the allegations.  Hunter Biden has not been the target of the search or the investigation and his lawyer ultimately got the laptop back, the network reported.  It's unclear what was on the machine or why it would have been in Ablow's offices.

CNN Claims Hunter Biden "Burisma Deal" Stinks; Story On ABC News Confronting Hunter Biden Resurfaces.  Now that the dam has broken, more MSM "journalists" are jumping on the Hunter Biden story, including CNN's Jake Tapper, who acknowledged on Saturday that Hunter Biden's relationship with Burisma — initiated just weeks after his father became the top US diplomat responsible for purging corruption in Ukraine — "stinks"[.]  [Video clip]  CNN followed that up with something even more surprising:  An opinion piece arguing that Trump does deserve a second term.

Obama officials were 'bothered' by Hunter Biden Burisma job: book.  President Obama's White House was "bothered" by Hunter Biden's ties to the Ukrainian energy company Burisma and Obama officials found Hunter's presence of the company board of directors while his father was vice president "unseemly," according to a new book.  The revelations were first published by New Yorker writer Evan Osnos in "Joe Biden:  The Life, the Run, and What Matters Now," which hit bookstores earlier this month, the Daily Mail reported.  "In the Spring of 2014 at the same time Biden was playing a central role in overseeing US policy in Ukraine, Hunter joined the board of Burisma, one of Ukraine's largest natural gas producers," Osnos writes.  The situation, however, was allowed to persist by the administration even as "distance was becoming harder to maintain" between the two Bidens.  Obama veterans continue to insist Hunter's business ties had no impact on US foreign policy.

How the Democrats Plan to Steal the 2020 Election.  As President Donald Trump tirelessly barnstorms the country, firing up voters from all walks of life at increasingly massive rallies that epitomize political Americana, Democrat Joe Biden is staggering around the political stage, desperately hoping to run out the clock and avoid any of the exploding controversy around his treasonous secret business dealings with the communist Chinese, among other appalling revelations.  Biden's campaign communications team — also known as the entire corporate "mainstream" media and all major social media and information platforms — are scurrying about crazily in an unprecedented suppression and censorship rampage to ensure that the growing body of authenticated evidence of Joe Biden's active complicity in his son Hunter's influence pedaling in Ukraine, China and Kazakhstan receives zero coverage, effectively bamboozling the American electorate.

The Nightmare Scenario of Biden-Harris and the Ascendancy of Kamala.  Kamala Harris is a radical with anti-America positions who will be within a hair's breadth of the Oval Office should Joe Biden win the presidency.  It's not just because Kamala has had her eye on the top slot, which she does.  It's not just because there are legitimate questions about Biden's cognitive state, which there are.  It's because the Biden Family Scandal may well be the most expedient means by which Harris' eye on the Oval Office comes to fruition.  The Biden Family Scandal is monumental, which explains why the media and Big Tech moved quickly and aggressively to censor it.  There's mounting evidence that the Biden family made millions of dollars from deals with foreign entities (China, Russia, the Ukraine for starters).

"America is dead" — Joe Biden actually said this at his Iowa rally.  Joe Biden actually told his audience today in Iowa that "America is dead" because of COVID-19:  [Video clip]  Wow.  Biden really knows how to inspire voters to come out to the polls.

Biden Pledges to 'Collaborate' With CCP in Chinese-Language Newspaper.  Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden promised a more collaborative approach to China in an op-ed published in a Chinese-language newspaper whose editors frequently attended junkets organized by the Chinese government.  Biden published an op-ed in the World Journal, a U.S. newspaper widely read by the Chinese-American community, on October 22.  World Journal, which is owned by a Taiwanese news conglomerate, historically had an anti-CCP tilt but has become open to Beijing in recent years.  The newspaper's editors have attended annual conferences hosted by the Chinese government and reportedly complied with a demand from the Chinese consulate to scrub an advertisement about the Falun Gong, an oppressed religious movement.

A Collusion Tale:  China and the Bidens.  Understand what's going on here:  The media-Democrat complex is warning you, on the basis of no evidence, that if you don't close your eyes to the explosive revelations from Hunter Biden's computers, you will be abetting a Russian intelligence operation; yet it has become increasingly obvious that this is because, if you open your eyes, you may find out that the Bidens were selling themselves to an actual Chinese intelligence operation.  Among the more amazing revelations in the Biden corruption scandal that the media-Democrat complex is blocking voters from seeing is this:  The corrupt Chinese businessmen with whom the Bidens were colluding not only had a record of buying political influence, not only were known to have high-level ties to the Chinese Communist Party and the regime, but also were clandestine agents of China — at least, that's what the FBI and Justice Department seem to have told the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court.

Hunter E-mails Request 'Formal Meetings With Dad' To Secure Billion-Dollar Deals.  The National Pulse has identified emails from Hunter Biden's hard drive appearing to reveal him and his business partners coordinating introductions to then-Vice President Joe Biden to solidify a deal involving billion-dollar bonds.  An email thread entitled "Engagement" from June 2011 reveals a Hunter Biden business associate — Sean Conlon — telling the former Veep's son: "we need to get these guys to an event or something where they get to just formally meet your Dad.  For follow on they can talk to Chief of Staff."

Joe Biden's Mind Goes Berserk, Says He's Going to 'Mobilize Trunalimunumaprzure'.  Joe Biden's mental acuity has become a hot topic as we approach the election day.  There were signs of degradation as early as last year, with the former VP flying off the handle at voters and forgetting where he was.  Things have only escalated this year, to the point where there's a new clip of his mind melting almost every day.  To the extent that they aren't coming out every day is mostly due to him calling lids on his campaign frequently as he hides in the basement.  Biden did come out today though, as he's obviously feeling the heat of President Trump's late barnstorming of the swing states.  That's when this happened.  [Video clip]

Joe Biden's Hand in Corruption, Subversion and Crime in Guatemala.  [Scroll down]  According to Peter Schweizer's new book Profiles in Corruption, Joe Biden met with the President of Costa Rica in 2009 and a few months later news broke of a "new multilateral partnership, 'to reform real estate in Latin America.'" Biden's brother, Frank, envisioned a huge development project with "thousands of homes, a world-class golf course, casinos, and an anti-aging center," in the Costa Rican jungle.  To support the project's energy needs, the Costa Rica National Power and Light Company would build the Guanacaste Solar Park, the largest solar farm in the nation — with Frank's company Sun Fund Americas as a partner, even though Frank had no experience in the energy field.  The U.S. government provided a $6.5 million loan for the project, and $47.5 [million] for another Sun Fund solar project in Jamaica.  Given the Biden family's other pay-to-play schemes in Russia, China, Kazakhstan, the Ukraine, and who knows where else, it would seem reasonable that Biden might expect something in return for pushing Baxter.  In fact, with Biden, it would be surprising if there were not some quid pro quo.  Guatemala is now on the cusp of becoming a Communist state thanks to Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and their minions.

Report: There's Another Hunter Biden Laptop in the Feds' Custody.  Over the last few weeks, conservative media has zeroed in on a laptop Hunter Biden left at a repair store in Wilmington, Delaware last year.  Both the Department of Justice and the FBI concluded that the laptop does, indeed, belong to Hunter.  But now it looks as though there's another laptop that belonged to Hunter.  And it's currently in the Drug Enforcement Agency's (DEA) possession, The Washington Examiner reported.  The laptop was allegedly taken during a search warrant that was executed against former celebrity psychiatrist, Keith Ablow, in Massachusetts.  Ablow is accused of "professional misconduct," NBC News reported.

Another Hunter Biden laptop taken into custody during DEA raid:  Report.  Another laptop tied to Hunter Biden was reportedly obtained by the Drug Enforcement Administration earlier this year.  Sources told NBC News that the device belonging to the 50-year-old son of former Vice President Joe Biden, who is now a presidential candidate, was taken into custody by the DEA in February while executing a search warrant in the Massachusetts office of a psychiatrist who was accused of professional misconduct.

Biden's Laptop Problem.  [Scroll down]  First there is the media, which used to be thought of a fourth estate bringing another level of checks and balances to government.  For the first two hundred years of American history, no one doubted or questioned the fact that the media was a necessary institution to protect and ensure the integrity of the American democratic republic by informing voters of vital information — like corruption — bearing on candidates for public office, with the Presidency clearly being the most important office.  Now we have the spectacle of the mainstream media not only ignoring a record of political payoffs documented in Hunter Biden's verified correspondence found on his computer's hard drive — corroborated by two former business associates — but also a media blackout on the recently released Senate Intelligence Committee report that contains confirmation by the U.S. Treasury Department of a $3.5 million wire transfer from the wife of the former mayor of Moscow, Elena Baturina, to Rosemont Seneca Partners, a firm Hunter Biden cofounded with Christopher Heinz (stepson of Secretary of State John Kerry) and Devon Archer (who currently awaits sentencing from a securities fraud conviction).

Biden Pledges to Gut Religious Freedom Protections, Saying They Give 'Hate' a 'Safe Harbor'.  Joe Biden made no bones about it:  If he wins the presidential election, he will gut religious freedom protections that allow faith-based homeless shelters, charities, and small business owners to act according to their consciences.  Specifically, he will shove LGBT ideology down the throats of religious Americans in the name of fighting "discrimination."  On Wednesday [10/28/2020], the Democratic nominee told Philadelphia Gay News that President Donald Trump has given "hate" a "safe harbor" by protecting religious freedom and enabling what Biden condemned as "discrimination."

Chris Wallace says he 'never believed' that Joe Biden did not speak about Hunter's business activity.  Fox News Sunday anchor Chris Wallace during an interview on the Brian Kilmeade radio show said that he "never believed" Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's claim that he never spoke to his son Hunter Biden about Hunter's business activities.  Former Hunter Biden associate Tony Bobulinski has alleged that Joe Biden discussed Hunter's business dealings:  "I've heard Joe Biden say that he's never discussed business with Hunter:  That is false," Bobulinski said while delivering a statement before the media last week.  Wallace noted that Tony Bobulinski's claims run counter to Joe Biden's.  "I can tell you I know what my kids are up to and if they were up to business dealings in Beijing or Ukraine it would've come up at some point," Wallace said.

'It's Not Going Away'; Tucker Fires Back at 'ProfessionalClass' Ignoring Biden Corruption.  On Thursday night, Fox News Channel host Tucker Carlson continued to reiterate the mounting evidence of corruption by the Biden family, two days after his interview with Tony Bobulinski and two days into the "complete media blackout" that raises questions about how we can "maintain a democratic system when reality itself has been banned."  Carlson said that, "until recently, no one debated" whether the Biden family was selling access based on their family name, but "since Joe Biden received the Democratic nomination," "anyone in the media has claimed otherwise" with the Bobulinski blackout being the latest.

What problems did Joe Biden solve during his decades in government?  The "60 Minutes" interviews of the presidential and vice-presidential candidates last Sunday were more revealing for questions not asked and for sidestepping than for what inquiring minds really want to know prior to Election Day.  First, there was the presumption that government has all the answers to contemporary problems.  There was nothing said about liberty, personal responsibility, or accountability for one's actions.  The presumption among Democrats is that no one can do anything without government and if they succeed independent of Washington they will be penalized with higher taxes and more regulations to discourage initiative and risk-taking.

Joe Biden's character.  [Scroll down]  Biden launched his campaign by falsely accusing Trump of having praised the white nationalists in Charlottesville, Va., as "very fine people."  He has compared Trump to the Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels.  Biden has repeatedly lied about the man who got into the tragic accident that killed his late wife — falsely claiming that the driver "drank his lunch" when he was not drunk during the accident.  Biden has bragged about the historic smear campaign against Supreme Court nominee Robert Bork.  The attacks Biden helped lead turned the word "Bork" into a verb meaning to publicly vilify someone to destroy his or her reputation utterly.  Biden bragged about defaming Bork, claiming that this act defended Roe v. Wade (1973).  It also poisoned America's public discourse for a generation.  The Democrat has also grown increasingly radical on the issue of abortion.  While he long supported the Hyde Amendment, which protects pro-life Americans from having their tax dollars directly support abortion, he now supports taxpayer funding for abortion.  Not only does this ostensible Roman Catholic support legal abortion — apparently with few restrictions — but he also wants taxpayers to foot the bill, and he would force the Little Sisters of the Poor to pay for abortifacient contraceptives.  This kind of egregious support for the killing of unborn babies is arguably also a character issue.

Evidence of Joe Biden Corruption Just Keeps Piling Up, and the Media Refuses to Cover It.  On Wednesday, Fox News host Tucker Carlson condemned the legacy media for attempting to bury the bombshell story of Tony Bobulinski, Hunter Biden's former business partner who has testified that Democratic nominee Joe Biden was involved in his family's influence-peddling operations in China, Ukraine, and elsewhere.  More and more sources have confirmed parts of Bobulinski's story — most recently a Senate committee — but many media outlets have refused to cover it.  "Bobulinski told a remarkable story.  Joe Biden — who once again could be [elected] president of the United States next week — was planning business deals with America's most formidable global opponent.  And when he was caught doing it, Joe Biden lied.  And then he went further, the slandered an innocent man as a traitor to his own country," Carlson explained.  He lamented that "no one in America's vast media landscape has pressed Joe Biden" for his excuse to smear Bobulinski.

NY Post's 'Smoking Gun' Hunter Biden Email 100% Authentic, Forensic Analysis Concludes.  An email Hunter Biden received in April 2015 from a Burisma executive discussing an introduction to then-Vice President Joe Biden, which lies at the heart of a New York Post investigation, is unquestionably authentic, a cybersecurity expert told the Daily Caller News Foundation on Thursday [10/29/2020].  The DCNF obtained a full copy of Hunter Biden's alleged laptop from former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani on Wednesday.  The DCNF provided Robert Graham, the founder of the cybersecurity firm Errata Security, with a copy of the email and its metadata for forensic analysis.  Graham, who has been cited as a cybersecurity expert in The Washington Post, the Associated Press, Wired, Engadget and other news and technology outlets, told the DCNF that he used a cryptographic signature found in the email's metadata to validate that Vadym Pozharsky, an advisor to Burisma's board of directors, emailed Hunter Biden on April 17, 2015.

Joe Biden Announces He Will Lead an Effective Strategy to Mobilize 'Trunalimunumaprzure'.  Former Vice President Joe Biden has the internet collectively scratching their heads after announcing that he will "lead an effective strategy to mobilize trunalimunumaprzure."  The hilarious gaffe came during a campaign stop earlier this week, but began making the social media rounds on Friday afternoon [10/30/2020].  [Video clip]

The Editor says...
It sounds like some kind of Chinese dog whistle.  It probably means, "Don't call me right now, I'm in trouble."

Hunter's 'Smoking Gun' Email Implicating Joe Biden Just Blew Up.  The Daily Caller News Foundation reports that a cybersecurity expert has authenticated the email that implicates then-Vice President Joe Biden in his son's shady business dealings in Ukraine.  Rudy Giuliani, a former New York mayor and former federal prosecutor, gave the DCNF a copy of the contents of Hunter Biden's laptop.  The news website then gave the founder of Errata Security, Robert Graham, a copy of the so-called "smoking gun" email and all the metadata associated with it.  Errata is the same company used by The Washington Post, Wired, and other publications.

Joe Biden Runs from Reporters on Friday — Refuses to Discuss Family Financial Scandals and Perversion.  Joe Biden and Democrats are hoping they can run out the clock.  Joe Biden refuses to acknowledge his family's corruption scandals and perversion.  The Biden family was accused of numerous financial crimes by a former associate Tony Bobulinski earlier this week. [...] And the lapdog media refuses to corner the Democrat candidate with ANY questions that may embarrass him or expose him.  They are faithful party members.  On Friday Joe Biden approached reporters before his small campaign stops later today.  But then Joe Biden turned and fled from the media.

Strange behavior:
Obama-Biden Michigan Rallies Closed to the Public, Locations Being Kept Secret.  Democrat presidential nominee former Vice President Joe Biden and his ex-boss former President Barack Obama are scheduled to hold two joint-appearance rallies in Flint and Detroit, Michigan on Saturday.  However the public is not invited and the locations of the drive-in rallies have not been disclosed.

The Editor says...
[#1] How will Mr. Biden draw a crowd at a secret location?  [#2] When has a presidential candidate ever done this before?  [#3] Why is it necessary to keep the rally location secret?  Because the Trump supporters will crash the event and outnumber the Biden supporters ten-to-one!

Email Emerges Showing Democrat Rep. Ro Khanna Vouches For Biden Whistleblower Tony Bobulinski.  Rep. Ro Khanna (D-CA) vouched for the credibility of Hunter Biden's former business partner Tony Bobulinski, who has alleged that former Vice President Joe Biden was intimately involved in the shady business dealings of his son, despite his claims of ignorance.

How Serious Is The FBI's Biden Inc. Investigation?  Almost certainly very serious.  In the Indian tribe fraud case in which two Hunter Biden associates were convicted (Devon Archer's conviction was very recently reinstated on appeal), a lot of evidence regarding these key Biden Inc. players was gathered.  One is now cooperating from prison.  Next question:  What will Devon Archer do?  Obviously what they have to offer to the government, their bargaining chips, all have to do with Biden Inc.  And the Biden Inc. case is open.  Ongoing.  But they've had to wait for the hoped for cooperation, working the documentary trail of evidence while they wait.  There's another indicator, and it's a significant one. [...]

FBI Investigating Hunter Biden for Money Laundering:  Report.  The FBI opened an investigation into Hunter Biden and associates in 2019 on suspicion of money laundering, a Justice Department official told Sinclair Broadcasting.  The criminal investigation is ongoing, the DOJ official said.  The revelation comes after Tony Bobulinski, a former business partner of Hunter Biden, came forward with a trove of documents regarding the Biden family's dealings with now-defunct Chinese energy firm CEFC.  While Joe Biden has denied that he has ever spoken with Hunter regarding the latter's overseas business dealings, Bobulinski claims the former vice president is lying.

Hunter Biden Has Been Under Federal Investigation for Money Laundering Since 2019.  How long can the media ignore this story? [...] Sorry, you may not like it.  I know you hate the timing, liberal media, but Joe Biden, his son Hunter, and his brother Jim might all be dirty.  The Biden camp has yet to refute the scores of emails from Hunter Biden that weave a sordid and wide-reaching web of corruption.  You already know about Hunter's Burisma gig in Ukraine, where he was getting $50k/month to reportedly sell access to top Obama officials. [...] With the China deal, which looks like another corrupt venture, that arrangement has been further fleshed out by whistleblower Tony Bobulinski, who gave the FBI all records and devices related to these alleged shady deals with CEFC China Energy, which has ties to the government.  This deal was first hashed out when Joe was VP, the deal sought to give Joe, identified as "big guy" in these emails, a 10 percent equity stake, and Bobulinski straight-up has said that a) the Bidens are compromised, b) Joe knew full well what his son was doing.  He was in on it.

FBI conducting criminal investigation into Hunter Biden and associates days ahead of 2020 election:  Report.  The FBI reportedly has an active criminal investigation into Hunter Biden, the son of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, and his associates.  James Rosen, a reporter with the Sinclair Broadcast Group, tweeted on Thursday, less than a week until Election Day, that the bureau opened the inquiry into allegations of money laundering in 2019. [...] The elder Biden, a former vice president, has denied having any involvement in foreign business ventures with his family and claimed he had no awareness of his son's pursuits.  However, neither Joe Biden nor his son have denied the authenticity of the computer materials, and a former business partner of Hunter Biden, Tony Bobulinski, claims Joe Biden was involved with his son's business dealings in China, and documents back up his claims.

Yes, [the] Media Are Rigging [the] Election Against Half The Country.  Here's How.  [Scroll down]  The story was sourced to a laptop computer allegedly left by Hunter at a Wilmington computer repair store.  Big Tech moved immediately to squash the blockbuster story on both Twitter and Facebook.  Twitter has banned the New York Post from tweeting and Facebook publicly announced they were suppressing the story, pending journalistic fact checks.  It's been more than two weeks since Facebook announced it was suppressing the story pending fact checks.  It has not shared who it tasked with the fact checks, and the only journalistic checks on the information have confirmed the story.  One of the recipients of an email found on the laptop confirmed it was real, on the record.  Government officials said it was not Russian disinformation.  No information has come to light to suggest it was Russian disinformation.  And last night, the key email in question was verified as legitimate by a cyber expert who was given access to the metadata for the email.  Other media outlets participated in the coordinated effort to squash the story, either by ignoring it completely or by claiming it wasn't a big deal.

Hunter Biden Has a PornHub Account Where He Uploaded His Personal Porn — Including with Family Member.  The Biden Family wants America to believe that they are the typical hard working American family, but nothing could be further from the truth.  Joe Biden said his son Hunter had done "nothing but good things his whole life" per the Daily Mail in a report on Valentine's day earlier this year: [...] Additional information uncovered this past week shows a different story.  On Monday [10/26/2020] it was uncovered that VP Biden and his wife colluded to suppress Hunter's actions with a certain minor.  On Tuesday we uncovered information showing how Hunter put his family at risk for Russian Blackmail after participating in seedy actions in West Hollywood with at least one Russian woman.  On Wednesday we reported that Hunter took pictures exposing himself in the presence of a minor.

Joe Biden's Campaign Schedule Contradicts Public Polls.  If you believe the polls, Joe Biden has a commanding lead nationally and is beating Trump in the battleground states.  For sure, he's headed to an easy victory, right?  Trump supporters say, "Don't believe the polls," and pollsters are convinced that after their embarrassing failure in 2016 they've got it right this time.  Okay, well, then why is Joe Biden going to Minnesota on Friday [10/30/2020]?  A Republican hasn't won the state since 1972, and yet, four days before the election, the Biden campaign, which has enough money on hand to work at expanding the map for Democrats, is coming to what should be safe territory for them.

Trump Team Tells Off Mitchell:  Biden & Media 'Colluded' to Exploit COVID.  Appearing on MSNBC Thursday afternoon [10/29/2020], Trump campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh told off anchor Andrea Mitchell as he exposed how the Biden campaign and the leftist media "colluded" to exploit the coronavirus pandemic and turn it into a "political weapon" against the President.  To Mitchell's utter contempt, Murtaugh also called out Biden's "anti-vaxxer rhetoric" and the press sowing doubt about COVID-19 treatments.  "We are inches away from a vaccine in record time.  Meanwhile, you have Joe Biden on the other side using this anti-vaxxer rhetoric, scaring people away from taking the vaccine, and then the media happily trumpeting the polls that say that people are afraid of the vaccine," Murtaugh hammered.  He emphasized how irresponsible the rhetoric was:  "Joe Biden, a candidate for President, is warning people that it could be dangerous, that's reckless."

Joe Biden's Last Minute Schedule Change Shows He's Much Less Confident than the Media Purports.  We are now in the final stretch of the campaign and even Joe Biden is leaving the basement for the last big push.  He's recently spent time in Pennsylvania, a key state that may decide the entire election.  But it's where he's going next that signals something important about where his campaign actually sees this race.  Biden will be heading to Minnesota tomorrow, a state he's supposedly got in the bag, and the decision to go there was apparently made at the last minute. [...] That Biden is rushing to Minnesota at the final moment is evidence that his campaign sees Trump rushing through the same holes he took advantage of in 2016.  Whether that will actually happen is anyone's guess, but there's obviously a palpable concern that it's a very real possibility.

Report:  All of the Bobulinski material reviewed by Congress so far has been verified.  The Senate committee tasked with verifying materials submitted to Congress by former Hunter Biden business associate Tony Bobulinski has found all of the material reviewed so far to be legitimate.  Bobulinski submitted materials to the FBI and to Congress last week that he said proved the Biden family — including Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden — leveraged their family name to broker a partnership with CEFC China Energy Co. in 2017.  Bobulinski was a member of the business consortium that dealt with the Chinese firm before things went south.  A spokesperson for Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), who chairs the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, told the Daily Caller on Wednesday [10/28/2020] that all of the electronic devices and records of business dealings reviewed to date have been verified.  The spokesperson also reportedly said that committee has not come across any "signs" or evidence to suggest the content is false.

About That 'Uncoverable' Biden Story.  Journalists claim they can't cover the New York Post's Hunter Biden email scoop because the underlying evidence has yet to been verified.  Also, they won't look for any verifying evidence because there isn't enough evidence.  It's quite the conundrum.  Because other than the now-corroborated emails, the laptop, the on-the-record source who was a CEO of a Biden corporation, a trove of text messages and documents, and a lack of denials, the Hunter Biden email story reminds me of the "Russian collusion" story.  Surely it deserves a modicum of scrutiny and follow-up.  Anyone who watched Tony Bobulinski's interview on Tucker Carlson's show this week — apparently it pulled over 5 million viewers — was confronted with a seemingly credible character.  Bobulinski says he met with Joe Biden in 2017, and that the former vice president was intimately involved in the family business.  Maybe someone will ask the candidate about this.

Complaint: Biden Center Received $22 Million In Donations From Unidentified Chinese Donor.  As questions loom about the Biden family's deep connections to the Chinese Communist Party, news comes that the Biden Center for Diplomacy & Global Engagement at the University of Pennsylvania has received $22 million in donations over six years from anonymous Chinese donors.  With just days to go before one of the most critical elections in modern times, requests by the National Legal & Policy Center (NLPC) to the University of Pennsylvania and the US Department of Education to release the names of those donors have been denied.  The NLPC filed a complaint with the Department of Education citing the donations because federal law requires universities to publicly disclose any donations over $250,000.  The NLPC said that despite this federal disclosure requirement the Department of Education will not compel the Biden Center to disclose the donor list.

Twitter, Facebook Confess There Is No Evidence Of Russian Disinformation Behind Hunter Biden Story.  In Wednesday's [10/28/2020] Senate hearing on Big Tech and Section 230, both Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg admitted that neither had any evidence that the New York Post's reporting on Joe Biden's knowledge of his son Hunter Biden's foreign business deals is Russian disinformation.  "For both Mr. Zuckerberg and Dorsey who censored the New York Post stories or throttle them back, do you have any evidence that the New York Post story is part of Russian disinformation or that those emails are not authentic?" Sen. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin asked.  "Do you have any information whatsoever they are not authentic or they are Russian disinformation?  Dorsey and Zuckerberg both denied receiving any indication that the story was part of a Russian misinformation campaign.

Confidential documents related to the Biden family have vanished.  Everyone knows the old joke that "even paranoid people have enemies."  Perhaps that needs to be expanded to say, "even conspiracy theorists sometimes stumble across real conspiracies."  During his Wednesday night [10/28/2020] show, Tucker Carlson said a source had sent documents about more Biden shenanigans to Fox News's New York office.  Carlson's producer forwarded the documents to Los Angeles, where Carlson was interviewing Tony Bobulinsky — but the documents vanished along the way.  Carlson explained that, on Monday, his producer deposited the envelope with a major American shipping company.  However, by Tuesday morning, the shipping company notified Carlson's team that the envelope was now open and empty.  The shipping company carefully tracked the envelope's progress across the country, beginning in Manhattan.  It learned that at 3:44 in the morning on Tuesday, an employee noticed that the envelope was open and empty.  The company interviewed every employee who touched the envelope and searched the drop-off office, the airplanes, the trucks, and the sorting warehouse through which the envelope passed.  It found nothing.  According to Carlson, the company has no idea what happened and doesn't like it.

Tucker Carlson Tells Viewers a Package with Biden Documents Sent By Producer from NY to LA Was Tampered with and Contents Went Missing.  Tucker Carlson told his audience on Wednesday night that on Monday his team received a collection of confidential and damning documents related to the Biden Family.  Tucker said he believed the documents were real and damning.  Tucker and his producer were in Los Angeles at the time and had an associate ship the documents to California overnight so Tucker could see them.  But the damning Biden documents never made it to Los Angeles.  The envelope was discovered during shipping and it was empty.  The contents of the package went missing.  The shipping company investigated and the company did not find out what happened to the contents of the package.

Update:
UPS Finds Mystery Tucker Carlson Package.  A spokesman for UPS told The Daily Beast on Thursday that they had located a mysterious packaged that Fox News host Tucker Carlson suggested had been deliberately misplaced or intercepted because it contained "damning" materials on the Biden family.  "After an extensive search, we have found the contents of the package and are arranging for its return," the spokesman said.  "UPS will always focus first on our customers, and will never stop working to solve issues and make things right."  Carlson suggested on Wednesday that he'd been the victim of a nefarious plot because the package he'd arranged to be sent to him had gone missing while being shipped.  Carlson claimed on his show that a Fox staffer had shipped the documents to him in California.  While Carlson never explicitly said the documents were stolen by some deep-state surveillance network, he implied as much, saying the documents had disappeared from the mailing company's network and couldn't be found even after an exhaustive search.

UPS says it has found the contents of Tucker Carlson's lost package reportedly 'damning' to the Biden family.  UPS said it found a cache of documents that the Fox News host Tucker Carlson said went missing under mysterious circumstances.  Carlson went on the air Wednesday night [10/28/2020] to announce the loss of the documents, which he said would be "damning" to Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's campaign.  He told viewers his team received the documents from a source recently and that they were related to the Biden family.  He did not give other details.

Tucker Carlson says UPS can't explain how flash drive with Biden documents got separated from package.  Fox News host Tucker Carlson said there are unanswered questions about the brief disappearance of a package containing a flash drive with documents related to the Biden family's business ventures.  On his show Thursday [10/29/2020], one day after he announced that the package had disappeared, Carlson addressed how UPS tracked down the missing parcel but was unable to answer how the flash drive was separated from the envelope that contained it.  "The envelope was securely sealed, we know that," Carlson said on Thursday.  "Two witnesses saw our producer seal it, and UPS does not dispute that.  Was the package torn open accidentally by a machine?  That seems unlikely.  UPS says that almost never happens.  So, we're left with the obvious explanation.  Someone, for some reason, opened our package and removed a flash drive containing documents that were damaging to the Biden family.  We would love to know who would do that and why."

The case of the disappeared Biden documents.  We've been following the story of the Biden crime family documents delivered to the team of Tucker Carlson Tonight at FOX News.  The documents (on a flash drive) disappeared in transit in transit between New York, where they had been received, and Los Angeles, where Tucker was preparing to interview Tony Bobulinkski. [...] After Tucker reported the disappearance on his show this past Wednesday, UPS somehow found the flash drive.  What happened?  That is the question that Tucker raised last night.  Tucker reports that the recovery of the flash drive has closed the case from the perspective of UPS.  Tucker disagrees and notes that UPS has clammed up.  [Video clip]

Carlson's Biden Docs [have been] Found.  But How, Why, Did They Disappear?  UPS found the "damning" Hunter Biden documents that disappeared somewhere in transit to Fox's Tucker Carlson, the company said yesterday.  But Carlson says UPS hasn't come clean.  How, he asked on last night's program, were the contents of the envelope separated from the package?  Why was the envelope containing the flash drive that held the documents empty?  UPS, apparently, is mum.

What the missing Tucker docs really tell us.  In a politically charged year, the appearance of deliberately intercepted documents days before the election is just as damning as the contents the documents would reveal.  Which of the two would motivate the Trump base more is hard to say.  Unless UPS gives a legitimate reason for why the package was opened and the documents removed, their finding is not the end of this story.  It's never been about whether the Tucker Carlson's team had backup documents — I'm sure they do.  The shocking revelations confirm a familiar pattern of liberal sympathizers breaking the law in order to sabotage President Trump's chances at re-election.  Whether it's Antifa beating up reporters or FBI agents hashing out an "insurance policy," the rise of the illiberal left and the Deep State is what is on voters' minds.

We Soon Learn Whether Most Americans Are Any Different From the Masses Who Fell in Line With Hitler and Stalin.  [Scroll down]  Lesley Stahl said a great deal when she told the president she would not ask him about the Hunter Biden laptop because CBS had not independently verified its ownership.  So the biggest scandal imaginable — a corrupt and immoral presidential candidate who leveraged his political positions for half a century to get his family and him rich by compromising the national interest in order to curry favor with our nation's mortal enemies — is kiboshed.  In lockstep Facebook and Twitter will not allow the New York Post to share its extraordinary journalistic breakthrough on the Hunter Biden laptop.  Of course the laptop was Hunter Biden's — the signature on the repair order, the photos within it of him naked in a bathtub, the emails verified by a third party who worked with him.  But they will not tell the story, and they will not allow others to tell it, so half the country's voters do not even know enough about the story to reject it.

Senate Committee Successfully Verifies All Bobulinski Materials Reviewed To Date.  The Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee has been successful in verifying all materials reviewed so far from Hunter Biden's ex-business partner Tony Bobulinski, the Daily Caller has learned.  Committee Chairman Sen. Ron Johnson will not call Bobulinski to testify before the November 3 elections, as the committee is working to review all the information provided to the committee by Bobulinski.  The information has to be verified, as it is subject to the same false information to Congress laws that verbal or written testimony does.  However, a Johnson spokesperson told the Caller that all the material provided by Bobulinski that has been reviewed so far has turned out to be legitimate.  The committee has "also" not come across any "signs" or evidence to suggest the content is false, the spokesperson added.  Bobulinski, who said Tuesday [10/27/2020] he believes "Joe Biden and the Biden family are compromised" in an interview with Fox News host Tucker Carlson, has turned over evidence to the FBI alleging he met twice in the past with the former vice president in regards to business with his son Hunter.  The Biden family has not yet disputed this information.

Short Thoughts on Bobulinski Interview.  Essentially, Hunter Biden was a bag man for the Biden family; courting foreign businesses and governments for money so the payments could be laundered (by front businesses) and used to support the Biden family.  That is the general takeaway from the interview with one of the legitimate business people, Tony Bobulinski. [...] As Bobulinski detailed the engagements, one of the more glaring aspects was how easily the U.S. intelligence and law enforcement apparatus could monitor everything that was happening.  Many of the meetings were with foreign officials outside the U.S; and many of the structural parts of the network were assembled in locations easily infiltrated by the U.S. intelligence apparatus.  The Biden network's attempted communication was not too sophisticated.  Their electronic trail of communication was captured and recorded by people inside the network.  There is a ton of evidence for what they were doing including text messages, emails, phone call records and traceable meetings with all of the participants as outlined by Bobulinski.  So, knowing that, why did the U.S. intelligence apparatus not do anything about it?

Hunter Biden emails:  Tony Bobulinski says he was warned, 'You're just going to bury all of us'.  A former Hunter Biden business partner said Tuesday he was warned against going public with information about their business dealings when another ex-partner told him:  "You're just going to bury all of us."  During an appearance on Fox News, Tony Bobulinski said he spoke with former partner Rob Walker to demand that Walker get US Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) to retract his claim that The Post's recent reporting on Hunter Biden's emails was part of a Russian-orchestrated "smear on Joe Biden."  Host Tucker Carlson then played a snippet of an audio recording that Bobulinski said was part of the phone conversation.  "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.

Never Forget the Time Joe Biden Said 'Don't Assume I'm Not Corrupt'.  The Democrats' lone shot at seizing power from the American people next week is currently embroiled in controversy surrounding reports that he used his son to peddle his influence while he served as the country's vice president.  Contents discovered on a laptop that reportedly belonged to his son Hunter Biden continue to bring up questions about Biden's alleged involvement in the younger Biden's international business dealings.  Numerous and credible reports that Biden himself was involved in making money from Hunter Biden's business in China, Russia, Kazakhstan and Ukraine have also not been challenged on substance.  But they portray a political family rooted in corruption, and they make a case that Biden himself allegedly guided American foreign policy while serving as VP with his own financial interests in mind.

Zuckerberg:  We Censored the Hunter Biden Story Because an Unnamed Individual at the FBI Told Us to be On the Lookout for Russian Disinformation.  Two possibilities:  [#1] The FBI gave him a general, nonspecific warning about Russian disinformation, and Zuckerberg is just using this as an excuse for his own company's partisan censorship.  [#2] More chillingly — the FBI, which was sitting on the laptop for a year and thereby keeping the story bottled-up, took the extra step of poisoning the well and claiming that the story was Russian disinformation to Zuckerberg, to make sure it got censored if it did come out.  If Zuckerberg's telling the truth, it's #2.

Tucker Carlson's interview with Tony Bobulinski is must-see TV.  On Tuesday night, Tucker Carlson did something he'd never done before: He dedicated his entire show to a single interview. The person he interviewed was Tony Bobulinski, an experienced international businessman who found himself working with Hunter Biden, James Biden, and others on a deal between the Biden group and CEFC, a Chinese energy company with ties to the Communist government and the military. [...] Bobulinski had saved everything — every document, every email, and every text. That's the quick background to the interview with Carlson, during which Bobulinski said that
  •   Hunter and James Biden brought nothing to the deal other than the Biden family name,
  •   What China wanted was the Biden family name,
  •   Joe Biden was involved in the business deal, so much so that he had veto power over negotiations,
  •   In 2017, Bobulinski met Joe Biden twice when the Biden side of SinoHawk was courting him to step in and act as CEO,
  •   Bobulinski also spoke at length with James Biden, Joe's brother,
  •   When Bobulinski asked James how they could get away with this kind of deal, which seemed to be falling into dangerous territory given that Joe could run again for president, James announced, "plausible deniability," and
  •   The Biden group stiffed Bobulinski, leaving him out of pocket for all his expenses while channeling CEFC's money into another entity that did not involve Bobulinski.
If we had a decent media, this story would be on every front page and at the top of every news hour.  Instead, Bobulinski is trying desperately to get Americans to know that he is not a Russian agent and that Joe Biden was in bed with the Communist Chinese government, starting when he was Vice President and continuing after he left the White House.

Laptop overview:
It's Not About the Money or the Prostitutes — It's about China.  It's not a Russian disinformation operation; it's not a political dirty trick based on lies.  Hunter Biden's laptop is real.  As are the emails and pictures on it.  Here are the facts.  We have the actual service agreement signed by Hunter Biden from when he dropped his hardware.  It is his signature at the bottom.  We have confirmation of the veracity of the emails from those involved in the Bidens' money-laundering scheme.  We have the FBI subpoena for the hard-drive with a "272-" prefix code indicating a money-laundering case.  And both the FBI and the director of national intelligence, the man who sits atop all 17 federal intelligence agencies, have publicly confirmed that there was zero indication of any foreign involvement in the laptop revelations, including Russian involvement.  Additionally, America's Mayor, Rudy Giuliani, has handed over his copies of the Biden hard drive to local police authorities in Delaware, where the laptop was abandoned, because it contained images that suggesting inappropriate sexual relations with an underage girl.  This after Hunter Biden was linked directly to prostitution and indirectly to a human-trafficking ring in the official Senate report released before the laptop's existence was revealed.  And then there is the Bobulinski press conference.

For Shame:  American Media Silence Over Biden Family Scandal.  The silence is deafening regarding the establishment media's refusal to cover the sordid tale of an influence-peddling scheme run by the Biden family.  A lengthy and detailed interview with Tony Bobulinski, a former business partner of Hunter Biden, blew the lid off this story last evening on Fox News.  It is a substantiated story with physical evidence piling up — yet we hear nothing but crickets from the national news media this morning.  Kudos to Tucker Carlson for his specific and thoughtful questioning of the former Navy veteran, who says he's come out of the shadows because his name was being sullied by false claims that he is somehow connected to Russia.  Mr. Bobulinski meticulously named dates, places, and conversations with presidential aspirant Joe Biden.  This was not a sketchy account of business dealings, but rather one with a great deal of specificity, including text messages, emails, and audiotapes to back up his claim that Mr. Biden is lying about his lack of involvement in his family's effort to peddle his influence in exchange for cash.  Where is a free and fair press at this moment?  Why are we witnessing a conspiracy to cover up this information?

Media Titans Are Misleading The Public About The Biden Scandal.  After big tech companies suppressed a New York Post article exposing written evidence that Joe Biden "spent some time together" with a top executive of a corrupt Ukrainian energy firm that was enriching his son, media titans are misleading the public about the central facts of this explosive affair.  Twitter, for a prime example, pinned a post to the top of its home page claiming that Biden "played no role in pressuring Ukraine officials into firing the prosecutor" at the core of this case.  That is flatly disproven by the words of Biden himself, who stated on video that he told Ukraine's president and its prime minister that he would withhold $1 billion in U.S. aid from their nation unless they removed the prosecutor.  "If the prosecutor is not fired," warned Biden, "you're not getting the money."

GOP Senators Call for Special Counsel to Investigate Hunter Biden Business Dealings.  Several Republican senators are calling for a special counsel to investigate Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, over allegations surrounding the family's business dealings overseas.  Republicans and President Donald Trump have focused on the business dealings of the Bidens while the Democrat was vice president, asserting that he may have engaged in an influence-peddling scheme to enrich his family.  They have cited data apparently sourced from a laptop that allegedly belonged to Hunter Biden, which included an alleged message from a Ukranian gas executive to Hunter saying that he would meet the former vice president in Washington in April 2015.  Biden's campaign denied a meeting took place.  Other than the emails, an eyewitness, Tony Bobulinski — a former business partner of Hunter Biden — said at a press conference on Oct. 22 that he would turn over several cellphones to the FBI, while telling news outlets that there was a deal outlined between state Chinese energy firm CEFC and the Biden family.  Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) said a special counsel might be needed to keep an investigation going whether President Trump wins another term in November or whether Joe Biden wins.

Scandal number N+1:
The Bidens Got Into the Hospital Business and People Died.  In the three years since Americore CEO Grant White was allegedly introduced by James Biden to Joe Biden at a fundraiser for the Beau Biden Foundation, a charity co-chaired by Hunter Biden whose laptop bearing the foundation's sticker is at the center of a new scandal, there have been lawsuits, an FBI raid, and investigations in different cities and states.  "James Biden mentioned that his brother's connections to labor unions and the Department of Veterans Affairs would help DMM expand its model nationwide," a lawsuit filed by one company claims.  Mayor Anthony Court, a Democrat, recalls White constantly dropping Biden's name.  White would later claim that Biden told him, "there's not a single door in the country that we can't open."  James Biden, Joe's brother, had become a principal at Americore whose business model was based on buying and turning around rural hospitals.  But the turnaround was into the grave.

Biden Whistleblower:  The Biden Family Is Compromised.  Tony Bobulinski, Hunter Biden's former business partner, sat down with Fox News' Tucker Carlson for a no-holds-barred interview for 45 minutes.  Bobulinski didn't want this interview.  He doesn't need to do it, but his reputation was being smeared as Russian misinformation.  He was a guest at the final debate and when the former vice president denied being involved in Hunter's business dealings, he almost stood up and shouted, "liar."  He added that Joe Biden is the "big guy" referenced in an equity arrangement with a shady Chinese firm with ties to the government.  The "chairman" is also what Hunter called his dad during these negotiations.  It's in the texts Bobulinski turned over to the FBI from his other business partners, Rob Walker and James Gilliar.  Bobulinski turned over all devices and business records relating to these Biden dealings and was interviewed by the FBI.  He re-confirmed what we already knew in the wake of the exposure of Hunter Biden.

Hunter Biden Audio Confesses Partnership With China 'Spy Chief'.  An audio recording exclusively obtained by the National Pulse reveals Hunter Biden discussing business involvement with a "spy chief of China" and how his business partner Devon Archer named him and his father as witnesses in a Southern District of New York Criminal case.  Hunter Biden — in an audio file labelled "Most Genius [...] Ever" — appears to be referencing Patrick Ho, who was a former Secretary for Home Affairs in Hong Kong, as a "spy chief of China" while lamenting how his business partner Ye Jianming of CEFC China Energy had disappeared.

Media Titans Subvert Reality About Biden/Ukraine Profiteering.  After big tech companies suppressed a New York Post article exposing written evidence that Joe Biden "spent some time together" with a top executive of a corrupt Ukrainian energy firm that was enriching his son, media titans are misleading the public about the central facts of this explosive affair.  Twitter, for a prime example, pinned a post to the top of its home page claiming that Biden "played no role in pressuring Ukraine officials into firing the prosecutor" at the core of this case.  That is flatly disproven by the words of Biden himself, who stated on video that he told Ukraine's president and its prime minister that he would withhold $1 billion in U.S. aid from their nation unless they removed the prosecutor.  "If the prosecutor is not fired," warned Biden, "you're not getting the money."

Hunter Biden and Lobbyist Named in IRS Complaint Against National Security Non-Profit Where They Both Served on Board.  A Virginia man filed an IRS complaint on Tuesday [10/27/2020] accusing a left-leaning national security non-profit of violating tax law by failing to disclose a business relationship between two of its board members — Hunter Biden and Sally Painter — and Burisma Holdings. [...] The complaint reads, in part:  "Organization did not disclose existence of business relationship via a shared client and coordination with that client."

Biden Is the Plug-n-Play Chinese Dupe.  The role of finding a "useful idiot," which led to the duping of Hunter Biden and his vice president father, was outlined in a question posed by the colonels on page 191 of Unrestricted Warfare: "Can special funds be set up to exert greater influence on another country's government and legislature through lobbying?"  The question might well be answered:  "Well, yes, we could co-opt the degenerate son of the vice president of the United States and have reflexive control over the father."  (One has only to listen to Anthony Bobulinski's detailed and extremely well-documented story about the greed of the Biden family to realize that until now Colonels Liang and Xiangsui must have been doing backflips of glee with the success of their plan, [...])  Ironically, in the very next sentence, the colonels asked:  "And could buying or gaining control of stocks be used to turn another country's newspapers and television stations into the tools of media warfare?"

Hunter Biden's former business partner releases audio of 'Biden family friend imploring him not to go public'.  A former Navy lieutenant who spent six months in 2017 in business with Hunter Biden, trying unsuccessfully to get a joint venture with a Chinese firm off the ground, has made public an audio recording from earlier this month, which he claims was a Biden associate trying to silence him.  Tony Bobulinski appeared on Tucker Carlson's Fox News show on Tuesday night and an audio was played of Rob Walker — whose wife works for Jill Biden — allegedly warning Bobulinski not to go public with the information.  'If he doesn't come out on record I am providing the facts,' Bobulinski told Walker.

Tony Bobulinski Plays Tape of Biden Partners Begging Him Not to Go Public.  Tony Bobulinski gave some rather compelling tidbits of information about the Biden family's business dealings with a Chinese company during his interview with Fox News' Tucker Carlson on Tuesday night.  At one point in the conversation, the whistleblower played an audio recording of a phone call with a Biden family representative who attempted to talk him out of taking the story public.

Hunter's Ex-Business Partner Tony Bobulinski: 'Joe Biden And The Biden Family Are Compromised'.  Hunter Biden's ex-business partner Tony Bobulinski told Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Tuesday that Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden will be "compromised" as president because of his family's business dealings with China.  "I think Joe Biden and the Biden family are compromised," Bobulinski said.  "I just don't see, given the history here in the facts, how Joe can't be influenced in some manner based on the history that they have," Bobulinski said.  "So as a citizen and an American taxpayer, I'm very, very concerned."  Bobulinski explained how he met with Joe Biden in Los Angeles on May 2, 2017, at the request of Hunter and his uncle, Jim Biden, to discuss the Biden family dealings at a high level.

Feds Authorized FISA Warrant Against Hunter Biden Chinese Business Associate, Report Says.  Federal law enforcement officials reportedly obtained a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant against a Chinese business associate of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden.  The Daily Caller News Foundation reports that the revelation suggests that the man, Patrick Ho, was "suspected of acting as a covert agent of a foreign government."  The revelation was made in a court documents from early 2018 that were obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation.  "Ho was charged on Dec. 18, 2017 with conspiracy to violate the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and money laundering related to CEFC China Energy contracts in Uganda and Chad," the report stated.  "Ho had been an executive at the multi-billion dollar Chinese energy company prior to his arrest."

Bobulinski: Biden's Brother Said They Got Away with Dealings with 'Plausible Deniability'.  During an interview aired on Tuesday's [10/27/2020] broadcast of the Fox News Channel's "Tucker Carlson Tonight," former Hunter Biden business associate Tony Bobulinski stated that 2020 Democratic presidential nominee former Vice President Joe Biden's brother, Jim, responded to Bobulinski's question on whether the Bidens were taking a political risk with their business dealings by saying, "plausible deniability."

'Look out for my family' — Hunter's biz partner tells all on meetings with Joe Biden.  For Tony Bobulinski, the meetings with Joe Biden are unforgettable, and not because they had anything to do with politics.  It's because that's when Bobulinski fully understood that Joe was very much involved in the foreign business schemes that son Hunter Biden and Joe's brother Jim had cooked up.  The final proof came during two conversations over two days in May 2017.  He first met the former vice president in the lobby of the Beverly Hilton Hotel, where Joe was to speak the next day at the Milken Conference on the "moonshot project" of finding a cure for cancer.  "Hunter and Jim and I are there, and Hunter gets up and talks to his father when he comes in," Bobulinski told me in a Tuesday [10/27/2020] interview.  "He then brings Joe over and introduces me, saying he's the one who's helping us with the business we're doing with the Chinese." If Joe Biden was honest with the public when he said he never discussed Hunter's business with him, the next words out of his mouth would have been, "What business with the Chinese?  What are you talking about, son?"

Biden rally October 27
Ronna McDaniel's Twitter feed tells you what the polls are missing.  If you pay attention only to the polls and the mainstream media narrative, you'll believe that, even though the presidential race is tightening, Biden still maintains a lead and can handily win the upcoming election.  However, if you look at the information on the Twitter feed of Ronna McDaniel, the GOP Chairwoman, you'll see an entirely different story and one that is more in sync with Trump's well-attended rallies compared to Biden's anemic afternoon teas.  Today, Joe Biden shuffled out of his basement for another one of his "rallies."  It was an embarrassment:  [Photo]  Meanwhile, Donald Trump is doing two to three rallies a day, every day, and looking more vibrant and alive with each passing appearance before tens of thousands of people.


Joe Biden Campaigns to 38 Circles of Supporters and Media in Warm Springs, Georgia.  38 circles were drawn on the ground today in Warm Springs for Joe Biden's "rally" today [10/27/2020].  It appears the media was sitting in a few of the circles.

Joe Biden Rallies Dozens in Georgia.  Former Vice President Joe Biden spoke to a few dozen attendees, including press, for his scheduled remarks in Warm Springs, Georgia, Tuesday afternoon [10/27/2020] with the presidential election just one week away.  Reporters took to social media to share photos from the event, which divided the small number of supporters up using large white circles.

The Editor says...
Virus or no virus, if the presidential election is a week away and one of the two candidates can't get three dozen chairs filled at a rally, the candidate surely must know that he's about to lose the election.  Joe Biden knows he lost the election last week, when Hunter Biden's laptop hit the fan, and Joe himself said he would eliminate the petroleum industry if given the chance.  No amount of media spin can save him now.  His only hope is massive voter fraud (e.g., dead voters, duplicate votes, corrupt election judges, fraud at the central counting station, etc.), combined with weeks of hair-splitting legal arguments (e.g., hanging chads), activist judges, and frivolous litigation in courtrooms all over the country.

Biden Expresses Openness To Rotating Justices Off The Supreme Court.  If court packing sounds too extreme, then maybe court rotation will do the trick.  Now that Judge Amy Coney Barrett has been confirmed to the Supreme Court, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has said he will consider rotating justices if he gets elected next week.  Speaking at a campaign stop in Chester, Pennsylvania, Biden said he will consider shifting the Supreme Court justices to lower courts during his tenure.

Joe Biden Refers to Doug Emhoff as 'Kamala's Wife'.  Former Vice President Joe Biden suffered a brain freeze during a television interview in Texas on Monday when he called Sen. Kamala Harris's (D-CA) husband, Doug Emhoff, "Kamala's wife."  Democrats in Texas have been calling on Biden to take the state more seriously, and in an appearance with NBC 5 in Dallas-Fort Worth, Biden attempted to defend his attention to the state. [...] Biden did not correct himself.  NBC 5 did not reference Biden's blunder in its story.

Joe Biden Calls Running Mate's Husband 'Kamala's Wife'.  2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden referred to his running mate California Sen. Kamala Harris's husband, Doug Emhoff, as "Kamala's wife."  "My wife, Jill, as you know and Doug Emhoff, Kamala's wife were there," Biden said speaking of Texas on Monday [10/26/2020]. [...] If sworn in, Biden, who will be 78 by January would be the oldest president ever to take power.  Biden's repeated gaffes also help explain the Democratic nominee's light campaign schedule just days before the November contest.

Hunter Biden's former business partner Tony Bobulinski is set to reveal explosive "new allegations" and recordings detailing his relationship with the Bidens.  Hunter Biden's former business partner Tony Bobulinski will appear on Tucker Carlson's Fox News show on Tuesday night with 'new allegations', which sources claim will 'bury' the Biden family.  Bobulinski has since early October been pushing the story of his time in business with Hunter Biden, 50, and his claims that Joe Biden was involved in the attempts to make deals.  Sean Davis, co-founder of The Federalist, tweeted: 'According to a source familiar with the planning, Bobulinski will play recordings of Biden family operatives begging him to stay quiet and claiming Bobulinski's revelations will "bury" the reputations of everyone involved in Hunter's overseas deals.'

Hunter Biden's 2017 rant about Burisma: 'I was fighting for the only income I have left'.  After his father left office as vice president, Hunter Biden lamented to a business partner in spring 2017 that his lucrative and controversial relationship with the Ukrainian gas company Burisma Holdings was in danger of falling apart.  "I was fighting for the only income I have left right now from Burisma," Hunter Biden wrote in a series of terse, f-bomb-laden text messages in June 2017 to Tony Bobulinski, the chief executive officer of a China-related venture the Biden family was creating at the time.  The messages were contained in dump of communications that Bobulinski, now a whistleblower to the Senate and FBI, made public in the last week.  They were independently verified by Just the News with one of the recipients and provide fresh evidence that Hunter Biden's business fortunes appeared in many ways tied to his father's proximity to power.

Former Goldman Sachs Chief Pours $100K into Joe Biden's Campaign.  A former Goldman Sachs president made a huge, last-minute donation to Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden's campaign against President Trump.  Harvey Schwartz, former president of Goldman Sachs, donated about $100,000 to the Biden Action Fund in October, according to Federal Election Commission data.

Biden Looked Normal At The Debates, So Why Does He Appear Senile At Most Other Times?  Biden's staff, which includes much of the media, must by now be weary of having to cover his repeated stumbles and descents into a momentary, but growing, madness.  In only the last year, Biden:
  •   Called the Declaration of Independence "you know, the thing."
  •   Addressed Chris Wallace as "Chuck."
  •   Failed to recall Mitt Romney's name so just labeled him "the senator who was a Mormon."
  •   Said he was running as "a proud Democrat for the Senate."
  •   Identified himself as an "Obiden-Bama Democrat."
  •   Apparently thought Dec. 7 is D-Day.
  •   Blundered his way through the U.S. COVID-19 death toll — was it 20, or 200,000 or 200 million?
  •   Struggled to recall the word "manifesto," which is not a term unknown to politicians, until it was provided to him by someone at a campaign stop who had asked him about the New Green Deal and Medicare for All.
  •   Lost count before he got to three while going over a list.
  •   Either said Arizona is an "important city" or so thoroughly slurred the word in question that no one could be sure what he said.
Heaven knows Biden has a long history of making gaffes.  And maybe some of his bungling can be attributed to him just being a natural-born blooper machine.  But all of it?  Unlikely.  The volume of slip-ups is too much.

Hunter Biden: White Crackhead Privilege.  [Scroll down]  Look: people aren't perfect, but how do normal nonviolent drug offenders who aren't the sons of vice presidents get treated?  Hunter Biden is not an accomplished attorney, military leader, or businessman.  He's a millionaire because his name is Hunter Biden.  How did he get to be a millionaire?  He got there the old fashioned way, the same way Benedict Arnold became famous and the same way Mata Hari became famous:  He traded honor for dollars.  Facebook and Twitter have done everything they can to hide Hunter's cocaine-and-hookers act, but here's the gist:  He traded access to his father, then the vice president of the United States, for extremely lucrative deals with very questionable companies and associates, some of whom are enemies of America.  He put the White House up for sale to the highest rollers and bidders.  Imagine Donald Trump, Jr. or Charlotte Pence Bond trying to pull this menagerie of corruption.

Joe Biden is just not qualified, for health reasons.  Joe Biden is exhibiting clear symptoms of failing mental health.  It is increasingly obvious he really is unaware of what is going on around him, and this condition appears to be worsening at a frightening pace.  The other day he forgot he was running against Trump, referring instead to "George," as in George Bush.  Earlier he forgot the president he had worked under while vice president.  Another time he started quoting the most famous line from the Declaration of Independence, and lost his way in the middle.  Then there was the time he actually removed his mask during a speech in order to cough.  He has repeatedly made the mistake of saying he is running for "the Senate,", has claimed 200 million have died from COVID-19 in the U.S., and forgotten the name of the Republican candidate for President in the 2012 election.  The list of these strange gaffes is quite long.  Normally I do not pay much attention to such errors, as every candidate makes these kind of verbal mistakes during the campaign.  It is the number that is disturbing, and the fact that they seem to be happening more and more often, almost on a daily basis.  Worse, the increasing number of Biden's gaffes, errors, and apparent confusion have been accompanied by what seems an increasing requirement that he be guided closely in whatever he does.  While he definitely has periods of lucidity, such as during both debates, Biden more and more seems incapable of doing anything without a teleprompter or a script or guidance from his staff or wife.

Putin comes out in support of Joe & Hunter Biden.  Reuters reported that Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Sunday that he saw nothing criminal in Hunter Biden's past business ties with Ukraine or Russia.  Is this Russian disinformation or does that only happen when Putin appears to support Trump?  He claimed Hunter had successful businesses in Ukraine and was annoyed when asked about Trump's comments concerning Putin's ties to the former mayor of Moscow and alleged payment of millions to Hunter Biden.  He said he knew nothing of such a commercial relationship.

Did Joe Biden Give The Chinese The South China Sea?  As the evidence mounts suggesting Joe Biden was directly involved in taking cash from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) there is a growing chorus of voices raising the possibility that Biden could be blackmailed by the Chinese into doing their bidding in the future.  As terrifying as that possibility is it should not be our chief worry.  Our primary concern should be not that Biden might be turned.  It should be that he has already been turned, and he is already doing Beijing's bidding.  The reality is that in the world of intelligence sources are rarely blackmailed into doing anything.  Instead, they are slowly recruited, manipulated, and bought.  Ultimately, they are completely in the pocket of whoever is targeting them and doing their bidding.  That process may well have begun years ago with Joe Biden, and he may have begun acting on behalf of the Chinese Communist Party when he was still Vice-President of the United States.  Consider the confluence of events surrounding China's seizure of the South China Sea and the almost inexplicable refusal of the United States of America to push back against that aggressive and illegal action.

Biden Ad Misleads, But Snopes Attacks Conservative Media for Exposing It!  The Biden campaign took an ad down from its YouTube page after it was exposed as deceptive.  Michigan bar owner Joe Malcoun said "For 50 years, The Blind Pig has been open and crowded — but right now it's an empty room.  This is the reality of Trump's COVID response."  He added "we don't know how much longer we can survive not having any revenue."  But reporters discovered Malcoun inherited money from his wife's grandfather, which he likened to "winning the lottery."  Did the "fact checkers" come after the Biden campaign?  No, they attacked conservative outlets!  On Thursday, Dan MacGuill at Snopes.com strangely called out Fox News, the Washington Free Beacon, the Daily Caller, and others for "Mostly False" analysis.

Which Flavor of Commie Is Joe Biden?  [Scroll down]  Biden has been wrong on every major foreign policy issue for nearly 50 years, siding with Communist policy objectives of the Soviet Union, China, and others at every turn.
  •   During the late 1960s and early '70s, when he first entered politics (!), he wanted to divide Vietnam into small pieces.
  •   During the Reagan era, he opposed the Reagan Doctrine, the Strategic Defense Initiative, deployment of the MX missile, deployment of nuclear Tomahawks to Europe to counter Soviet medium-range SS-20s, and support to the Nicaraguan contras (who opposed the Sandinistas who were the Soviets' proxies in Central America).  He also supported a "nuclear freeze" during the height of the Cold War (which would have locked in the Soviets' numerical advantage in land-based multi-warhead nuclear missiles).
  •   He opposed President Bush 41 on the Persian Gulf War, he opposed President Bush 43 on the surge that finally won the war in Iraq, and he even opposed Obama's decision to kill Osama Bin Laden. He voted for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan in 2001 and 2002.  He claimed that Turkey would prove that Islam and democracy could peacefully co-exist.
  •   He claimed that Benghazi was the intelligence community's fault for not having forewarned the Obama regime that the attack was due to a protest over a previously unheard-of movie trailer (a complete lie, as we now know).  He helped Obama enable the rise of ISIS in Syria.  He denounced President Trump's decision to kill Qassem Suleimani, the commander of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.
  •   He supported Obama's deal with Iran (the JCPOA) which has since been exposed as a gift to the mullahs, but the Iranians received their "pallets of cash."  What do you suppose the world's foremost state sponsor of terrorism did with that money?

Bobulinski To Play Damning Recordings Of Biden Family Operatives On Tucker Carlson.  According to a bombshell new report, ex-Biden associate Tony Bobulinksi will be joining Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Tuesday evening to play recordings of Biden family operatives, begging him to stay quiet.  "Tucker Carlson's show tomorrow night will be devoted entirely to an interview with Tony Bobulinksi, the Biden family insider-turned-whistleblower whose explosive e-mails show that Joe Biden himself was deeply involved in Hunter's foreign business dealings," reported The Federalist's Sean Davis.  "According to a source familiar with the planning, Bobulinski will play recordings of Biden family operatives begging him to stay quiet and claiming Bobulinski's revelations will "bury" the reputations of everyone involved in Hunter's overseas deals," he continued.

Media Weaponize COVID Fear to Cover Biden Disappearance.  With reports of Joe Biden cancelling all in-person campaign events, the Club members are trying to carry their Potemkin candidate across the finish line.  Everyone is now aware Joe Biden is a cover for the real person the puppeteers want in the oval office, Kamala Harris.  That said, the DNC needs to weaponize the COVID-19 threat as a cover story to explain the lack of campaigning by the Democrat candidates; hence, the media hype of the coronavirus is back this week in full swing.  COVID fear is a narrative cover-story to hide the lack of support for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.  Part of that cover-story is needed because the MAGA community was showing up in overwhelming numbers at Biden-Harris events, and the false illusion of support — propping up the Potemkin village — was being exposed.  All of these machinations are part of a remarkable attempt at psychological operations in this election.

Media Firemen Scramble to Save Biden Candidacy.  During the Biden stretch run, the firemen on the left have shredded what is left of their reputations as journalists to destroy information the Deep State does not want their audiences to have.  Even before Hunter Biden's laptop surfaced, the media busied themselves suppressing information that was readily available to the ordinary citizen — montages of Biden plagiarizing, groping little girls, making racially insensitive comments, eulogizing exalted KKK cyclops, threatening Ukrainian prosecutors, even sexually assaulting at least one very credible Democrat — and they did so with enough success that the Biden camp felt comfortable positioning Joe as the candidate with "character."  The Hunter laptop was too tangible to dispose of subtly.  Not since Joseph Goebbels urged the German Student Union "to commit to the flames the evil spirit of the past" has a western nation so flagrantly thrown in on the side of ignorance.  Twitter has gotten most of the attention for its total blocking of the New York Post, which broke the laptop story, but the firemen at NPR were not far behind.

The October Laptop Surprise.  Please promise not to even whisper amongst yourselves what you are about to read here.  Do not share it, or even comment below about Hunter Biden's laptop, because social media tells us that you are not qualified to know or discuss this information at the risk of having your account banned, where you will possibly be electronically scorned for life.  And, as if the threat of being banned by FB or Twitter were not bad enough, the ultimate warning was laid down by James Clapper, "Fight if you want, but there's nothing you can do. 'The emails are Russian' is going to be the official dominant narrative in the mainstream political discourse, and there's nothing you can do to stop it!  Resistance is Futile."  Who amongst us will volunteer to tell former DNI James Clapper that he is — so yesterday — and would he please mind sitting down.  And, furthermore, that it has been confirmed by the current DNI John Ratcliffe that, "Hunter Biden's laptop is not part of some Russian disinformation campaign."

Hunter Biden Is Just the Tip of the China Iceberg.  Thanks to a statement from a former Hunter Biden associate and leaked emails that were never supposed to see the light of day, we now know that former Vice President Joe Biden may have been involved in his son's business dealings with China.  This is concerning, since one of his affiliated investment firms directly supported a Chinese company accused of the espionage of nuclear technology in the United States.  This episode demonstrates the great lengths to which China seems willing to go to influence U.S. public policy and get ahead of its military.  But this example is far from an anomaly.  It only scratches the surface of what the People's Republic has been doing to counter American military superiority for years.

America's Leading Pro-Life Priests Agree That 'No Catholic Can Vote for Joe Biden'.  Leading Catholic priests in the United States — Fr. Frank Pavone, Fr. Michael Orsi, and Fr. Stephen Imbarrato — are saying that no believer in Christ should vote for Joe Biden for president this year.  Biden has advertised his Catholic bona fides despite supporting the murder of babies in the womb and LGBTP "rights."  These hardline Catholics, who have not allowed the world to warp their understanding of faith like Pope Francis has done, believe that Biden's hypocrisy makes him an unacceptable choice for president.

The March of The Deplorables — President Trump's Army Has Chased Biden Off Campaign Trail.  In early October a large number of Latino supporters for Trump in Miami-Dade county Florida surprised the Biden-Harris campaign by swarming a local Kamala Harris event. [...] The Deplorables are on the march, and their assembled visibility, the political optics, have destroyed the media narrative.  The downstream impact on the messaging of the Biden-Harris campaign, their surrogates and the DNC club writ large, is devastating.  That's almost certainly the real reason Joe Biden has abandoned his in-person campaigning.

Text Messages Show VP Biden and His Wife Colluded to Suppress Hunter's Actions With A Certain Minor.  [Scroll down]  Of course, Biden is the one who is lying, as leaked emails have revealed deep levels of corruption and homemade porn of his son smoking crack with prostitutes is all over the internet.  But today we have more — much more.  Hunter Biden sent the following text to a family friend where he shares that someone is accusing him of being sexually inappropriate around her daughter.  This is why Hunter claims he is not allowed to be alone with that person: [...] These texts paint a horrible picture of what is going on behind the scenes in the Biden family.  What [...] was going on in the Biden household?  If a minor was involved, why did no one contact the police?  Why was this hidden from the public?  Was this because it would tarnish Joe's political image?  Most importantly, is the child safe now?

Biden's federal fracking ban prompts warnings from big energy.  The oil and gas industry is doubling down on countering Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden's promise to neuter fracking, which could upend America as an energy leader and eliminate thousands of jobs.  Biden said on Saturday [10/24/2020] that he supports a fracking ban on federal lands and waters, which account for 13% of the nation's natural gas production.  The comments came as he attempted to clarify remarks made at last week's debate that supported transitioning the U.S. away from oil.  On Monday, President Trump in a tweet, reminded voters that his plans would hurt jobs.

Joe Biden's insane war on oil.  Joe Biden wants to take one of the great American success stories of the last several decades — and drive it into the ground.  He would turn his back on the stupendous wealth represented by proven reserves of oil and gas in this country.  Rather than focusing on producing cheap, abundant energy — a key ingredient to human progress through all of human history — he would embark on the fool's errand of trying to adjust the world's thermostat 80 years from now.  After a 50-year effort to diminish our reliance on Middle Eastern oil, which has miraculously happened at last, Biden would force America to transition to solar and wind, industries currently dependent on Chinese supply chains.

Putin: 'I Don't See Anything Criminal' About Hunter Biden's Dealings.  Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Sunday [10/25/2020] he saw nothing wrong with the business dealings of presidential candidate Joe Biden's son Hunter in Ukraine and Russia.  The American mainstream media passed along Putin's comments without any warning messages about "disinformation" or "election meddling," even though they have breathlessly reported claims that Russia influenced the 2016 election and is attempting to influence the 2020 race.

Vladamir [sic] Putin Speaks Out Against Hunter Biden, Says He "Made Very Good Money".  While speaking to reporters on Monday [10/26/2020], Russian president Vladamir Putin commented on the ongoing Hunter Biden scandal, stating that the former Vice President's son had made "very good money" in Ukraine.  The Russian president said that Hunter Biden's business dealings had little to do with Russia.

Confronting political censorship.  The bombshell discovered on a laptop purportedly belonging to Hunter Biden, son of Democratic presidential contender Joe Biden, were quickly contained last week when dominant social media platforms chose to shield them from public view.  A New York Post exclusive, including email references to a meeting between then-Vice President Biden and an executive of corruption-tainted Ukrainian energy firm Burisma Holdings, lent fresh rationale to President Trump's call last year for investigation of the Bidens for peddling access.  Congressional Democrats retaliated and tried unsuccessfully to oust Mr. Trump from office.  The Hunter Biden revelations comprise an epic October surprise with the potential of tarnishing Mr. Biden's image weeks before his Election Day faceoff against the Republican president.  But Twitter and Facebook chose to block users from linking to the story, effectively forcing readers to engage in a game of online hide-and-seek to read it.

Joe Biden Cuts Off Reporter During Question on Hunter Biden.  Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden cut off a Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, television reporter on Saturday who was attempting to ask a question about his son, Hunter Biden.  WYOU reporter Andy Mehalshick began saying, "Questions and controversy continue today about Hunter Biden, your son," before Biden jumped on him:  "There is no controversy," he snapped.  "That's all a lie."

Hunter Biden messages 'independently confirmed' to be authentic, GOP lawmaker says.  A top House Republican said his staff independently authenticated materials from a laptop that purportedly belonged to Hunter Biden.  Rep. Jim Jordan, the ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, insisted during a Sunday [10/25/2020] interview on Fox News that the emails generating controversy for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden in the final weeks of the 2020 election cycle are "as real as real can be."  Biden [...] has issued a patchwork of denials in response to allegations that he got wrapped up in foreign business dealings involving his family.  As Trump and his allies have sought to leverage the laptop controversy, one point they often make is that neither the former vice president nor his son Hunter have denied the authenticity of the emails, photos, and other contents found in a laptop and hard drive given to a Delaware computer shop that have been shared with the FBI and Rudy Giuliani, a personal attorney to the president.

Democrats Resurrect 'Russia Bogeyman' Ruse to Cover Joe and Hunter Biden's Foreign Misconduct.  If a U.S. political giant falls in Washington, D.C. but nobody is around to hear it, did Russia do it?  Judging by the way the Democrats have been overplaying the anti-Russia card for the past four years, we already know the answer to that question.  Last week, the New York Post fired off a bombshell story that exposed emails allegedly belonging to U.S. presidential candidate Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden.  The messages — discovered on a laptop that the younger Biden had reportedly dropped off at a Delaware computer repair shop in April 2019 — point to a level of corruption and nepotism that is shocking even by modern standards.

Hunter Biden Sought To Avoid Registering As Foreign Agent In Chinese Business Venture, Text Message Shows.  Hunter Biden suggested setting up a shell company to do business with a Chinese firm in order to avoid registering as a foreign agent, and to be able to bid on contracts with the U.S. government, according to documents from May 2017 obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation.  A day after sending the message, Biden arranged a meeting between his father, Joe Biden, and Tony Bobulinski, one of the prospective partners in a deal with CEFC China Energy, a Chinese conglomerate whose chairman had links to the communist regime in Beijing.  "We don't want to have to register as foreign agents under the FCPA which is much more expansive than people who should know choose not to know," Hunter Biden wrote to Bobulinski on May 1, 2017, according to a message obtained by the DCNF.

Jim Biden Lashes Out At Tony Bobulinski For Revealing Biden Corruption.  Ex-Biden business associate Tony Bobulinski recently came forward and provided damning information on the Biden family, specifically how they went behind his back and did a shady $5 million deal with the Chinese energy company CEFC.  On Saturday [10/24/2020], Bobulinski texted Joe Biden's brother, Jim Biden, about going behind his back.

Biden's 'Transition' From Oil Comment Becomes a Big Problem in Pennsylvania.  Joe Biden campaigned in Pennsylvania on Saturday and in three separate interviews by local media, was pressed about his comments during the debate about wanting to "transition" from fossil fuels to wind and solar power.  He was also closely questioned about his views on fracking, that he still has trouble answering.  This has become a genuine issue in Pennsylvania, an energy-producing state with tens of thousands of jobs in the industry.

Trump mocks Biden for mixing him up with former President George W. Bush.  President Trump on Monday [10/26/2020] blasted the media for protecting Joe Biden and mocked the former veep after he appeared to confuse the commander-in-chief with former President George W. Bush.  "Joe Biden called me George yesterday.  Couldn't remember my name.  Got some help from the anchor to get him through the interview.  The Fake News Cartel is working overtime to cover it up!," Trump said on Twitter.  Biden, speaking during an "I Will Vote" concert on Sunday, mixed up the two presidents.  "The character of the country, in my view, is literally on the ballot," Biden said.  "Four more years of George, um, George, gonna find ourselves in a position where if Trump gets elected, we're gonna be in a different world."

Trump has already been elected, and we're all in the same world as before.

Sen. Ron Johnson:  Biden [is] 'Lying' About His Son Not Making Money in China.  Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), chair of the Senate Homeland Security and Government Oversight Committee, said on Sunday that former Vice President Joe Biden was "lying" when he said last Thursday that his son did not get money from China.  At his final debate with President Trump, Biden said, "My son has not made money in terms of this thing about, what are you talking about, China.  I have not had a — the only guy who made money from China is this guy.  He's the only one.  Nobody else has made money from China."  "Well, the vice president is lying again," Sen. Ron Johnson told "Sunday Morning Futures" [10/25/2020] with Maria Bartiromo.

A Lid Too Far.  Joe Biden didn't conduct any in-person campaigning yesterday, nine days out from the election.  The Biden campaign called a so-called lid on his activities yesterday at 11:30 a.m.  He's resting up.  He's sitting on a lead.  He's giving President Trump a chance to overtake him.  I should like to think it's a lid too far, but that's clearly not the way his campaign team sees it.  By contrast with Trump's rallies, Biden's events are not exactly high energy affairs.  Okay, it's not just by contrast with Trump's rallies.  Biden's in-person campaign events are embarrassing judged solely on their own terms.  With his daily lids Biden is also minimizing the display of his mental incapacity, as in the video below.  Biden's mental incapacity seems to me the scandal hiding in plain sight.  [Video clip]

"Biden's Staff Told Us He Misspoke" — Joe Biden Confuses His Agenda in 60 Minutes Interview so His Staff Steps in to Correct the Record.  Joe Biden sat down for an interview with 60 Minutes host Norah O'Donnell and it didn't go well.  Biden 'confused' his agenda during the 60 Minutes interview so his staff had to step in and correct the record.  "I can send every qualified person to a 4 year college in their state for $150 billion," Biden said.  "I can make sure every single person who qualifies for community college can go and we'd still have a lot of money left over."  Pizza for everybody!  It turns out Joe Biden was lying about his tax plan.  Shocker.

Christiane Amanpour Gives The Game Away On Media Blackout Of Biden Scandal.  [Scroll down]  There is no question that the press, which has done anything and everything to ruin Trump's presidency, will do anything and everything it can to get him out of office, including burying a big scandal involving his opponent.  Nor should there be any doubt that a mainstream journalist perceived to have helped Trump would see his or her career immediately canceled.

Trump Continues to Hurl Monkey Wrenches into the Gears of the Democrats' Political Machine.  [Scroll down]  A healthy skepticism about government officials is our national and cultural inheritance, and our general disdain for them has only grown as they've infringed upon all aspects of American life for generations, and especially during Joe Biden's long tenure as a politician.  Trump may be unique because he had no prior political experience, but Joe Biden exists on the other side of the spectrum.  He's been in politics for much longer than anyone who has successfully run for the presidency.  For most Americans, the terms "politics" and "corruption" could be synonyms, and the relationship between "time in politics" set against "level of corruption" has an almost invariably and positively increasing correlation.  Trump knows this, and what's more, as a political outsider, he's in a comfortable position to expose the corruption that we all know exists among the long-time swamp creatures in Washington.  As he pointed out, if Joe had the wherewithal to do any of the things he's now promising, why didn't he do them for the many decades when he was in office?

Trump Campaign Staff Says Joe Biden Will Not Do Any More In-Person Campaigning Until Election.  Joe Biden will not be doing any more in person campaigning through the election, according to a member of Trump's campaign staff.  The news comes one day after emails, pornographic and drug-filled photos and videos of his son Hunter Biden were published online.  JT Lewis of Team Trump tweeted on Sunday that "Joe Biden says he won't do any more in person campaigning for the remaining 9 days."

Biden explains why he draws tiny pathetic crowds; as anemic event turns into impromptu Trump rally.  An army of enthusiastic Trump supporters crashed a tiny Biden rally in battleground state Pennsylvania yesterday [10/24/2020], as Joe disingenuously suggested he likes the minuscule crowds he draws because they limit Covid spread.  That did not stop two Kamala Harris aides from getting infected last week.  After MAGA Nation started honking their horns during Biden's anemic-sized drive-in rally, Joe got so triggered that he angrily insulted Trump supporters.  Biden snarked:  "We don't do things like those chumps out there with the microphones, those Trump guys."  The incident unfolded in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, when a legion of Trump supporters swarmed the small Biden rally, waved their MAGA flags, and honked their horns while Biden spoke.

Biden: 'This Is The Most Consequential Election' Due To Possibility Of 'Four More Years Of George'.  Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden warned on Sunday [10/25/2020] that next month's election was the "most consequential" in a long time because of what would happen if there was "four more years of George," an apparent reference to former President George Bush.  Biden, after saying "George" twice, corrected himself.

10 Examples of Joe Biden's History of Racially Charged Conduct and Comments.  Democratic nominee Joe Biden took great pains during his debate with President Donald Trump to paint his Republican opponent as racially insensitive and politically divisive. [...] Biden's critiques struck some as odd given the former vice president's long tenure in public office and his own problematic record on racial issues and his past racially insensitive comments.  The following is an extensive, but not exhaustive, look into the Democratic nominee's past stances and comments.

A Sordid Conspiracy To Deceive The American Electorate.  Have we ever witnessed a stranger anomaly in modern presidential politics than the craven contempt the Biden campaign, the media and social media have shown for the American electorate in their disgraceful conspiracy to hide Joe Biden?  What bona fide presidential candidate would arrogantly hide in his basement during the heat of a campaign, especially in the last few weeks of an ever-tightening one?  If the liberal media weren't providing Biden cover, he couldn't get away with this.  If they were even raising questions about his intentional invisibility, this campaign would look far different, and far less surreal.  As President Donald Trump has hopscotched the country, traveling thousands of miles to appear at vigorous, humongous campaign rallies, Biden and his running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris, are nowhere to be found.  We've never had a presidential candidate virtually opt out of the campaign.

Chuck Schumer Seems Pretty Nervous About Hunter Biden's Laptop.  Is the Hunter Biden laptop scandal a nothing burger?  Is it such an obvious, desperate political smear that it warrants no examination and no reporting?  The left-wing media appears to think so.  The complete lack of curiosity on the part of reporters who spent four years chasing a fabricated conspiracy theory is remarkable.  If there were nothing to the story of the Biden family's quest for cash, though, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) would not be wasting his time begging the director of the FBI not to investigate the matter.  That is exactly what Schumer is doing, however.

Biden's War on Oil Causing Headaches for Democrats in Tight Races.  At Thursday night's presidential debate, Joe Biden came out in support of eliminating the oil industry, albeit not overnight.  Previously, Biden had come out against fracking and fossil fuels.  But the Democratic nominee made it known on Thursday that he's in lockstep with AOC and the far left's plans to ban the entire industry, which close political observers already knew.  Biden's outing as an anti-oil candidate sent shockwaves across battleground states where Biden's fellow Democrats are in tight congressional races and are now having to explain away Biden's vow to eliminate oil.  Millions of jobs would be terminated if Biden wins the election and kills oil.

Biden grilled on 'transition' away from oil and gas comment in Pennsylvania TV interviews.  Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is getting grilled in Pennsylvania ever since he said during last week's debate that he plans to "transition" away from the oil industry.  In three separate local news interviews in the key battleground state on Saturday, Biden responded to questions about his comment, as well as his mixed messages regarding fracking.

Biden and the Lying Press.  If we had an honest press, Joe Biden wouldn't be running for president.  Biden's mental deterioration or apparent status as some Ukrainian/Russian/Chinese mafioso would have long ago torpedoed his career.  But it is what it is.  Today's press is not the unbiased watchdog that our founders granted constitutional protection.  Today's press is nothing more than a biased, butt-kissing left-wing self-licking ice cream cone.  Today's media are Stalinist to the core.  They are prejudicial liars who promote poisonous propaganda to manipulate public opinion.

With the Hunter Biden Expose, Suppression is a Bigger Scandal Than The Actual Story.  The flow of information in the United States has become so politicized — bottlenecked by an increasingly brazen union of corporate press and tech platforms — that it's become impossible for American audiences to see news about certain topics absent thickets of propagandistic contextualizing.  Try to look up anything about Burisma, Joe Biden, or Hunter Biden in English, however, and you're likely to be shown a pile of "fact-checks" and explainers ahead of the raw information.

Emails show that Biden group knew they were working with Chinese intelligence.  The Biden family business group that partnered with a Communist Chinese company knew that it was working with Chinese intelligence.  The Chinese partner was also closely tied to the Chinese regime and the People's Liberation Army.  Tucked in a Wall Street Journal feature that went online less than 90 minutes before last night's Trump-Biden presidential debate, the revelation came in a set of emails and texts that former Hunter Biden business partner Tony Bobulinski provided to editorial writer Kim Strassel.  In a 2017 exchange, Biden business associate James Gilliar reminded Bobulinsky that their Chinese counterparts "are intelligence so they understand the value added" by the Biden name.

Rudy Giuliani lays out the case against Joe Biden.  We've long known that Joe Biden made sure that his family profited from his time in politics.  He was just "good ole Joe" while they were raking in millions of dollars.  It seemed strangely altruistic.  However, what we've learned from only the small release of information on the Hunter Biden computer and Tony Bobulinski's statements, is that Joe Biden wasn't just a benevolent corrupt politician — he was on the take, using his family as middlemen.  Of course, the story is complicated.  If it had been simple, Biden would have been run out of politics a long time ago, even by his fellow Democrats.

The Biden Crisis.  If you want to know why early voting stinks, the burgeoning Biden crisis should inform you.  Estimates are that about 50 million Americans have voted, as of this writing.  That's before or as the gravest scandal in the history of presidential politics unfolds.  The allegations against Joe Biden are stunning.  They involve corruption and the risk of treason.  Influence-peddling with the Chinese, Russians, and Ukrainians, to the tune of multimillions of dollars pocketed by Biden and his family.  The PRC, Putin, and others appear to have the goods on Biden.  That makes the former vice president subject to blackmail. [...] Never before in U.S. history have we had a prospective president in such jeopardy.  President Bill Clinton, to anyone's knowledge, was never compromised in this way with America's enemies — and yes, the PRC is really a U.S. enemy.  Putin, who's no friend, doesn't pose the existential threat to the U.S. that Xi Jinping does.

Biden Screams, Slurs His Words in Angry Pennsylvania Speech.  Joe Biden traveled to Pennsylvania on Saturday to encourage people to vote early.  Biden's first stop in Bucks County, PA didn't go too well for old Joe.  Hundreds of Trump supporters surrounded Biden's drive-in rally and honked their horns.  Biden snapped and insulted Pennsylvanians who don't support him and called them "chumps."  Biden was very angry — It was hard to understand Biden as he screamed and slurred his words.  [Video clip]

Biden's most revealing gaffe yet.  Joe Biden has a well-deserved reputation as a gaffe machine, but an offhand comment yesterday in Pennsylvania while addressing a parking lot with a few cars in it, tells us exactly what we need to know about him at this precise moment. [...] A chump is someone to exploit with con games.  And because Democrats always accuse Republicans of doing the nefarious activities that they, the Democrats, are doing, it is Biden's voters who are treated as the chumps.  That's always been true because Biden's pose is as "Scranton Joe," the working class guy, while he acts to exploit those very people.

Joe Biden's closing message to his fellow Americans who don't support him:  You're "chumps.".  Over the past 4 years, Democrats have devolved to regularly insulting President Trump's supporters.  Hillary Clinton called us "deplorable" and "irredeemable."  Joe Biden calls us racist, xenophobic, and chumps.

"Chumps": Angry Joe Biden Trashes Trump Supporters During Pennsylvania Rally.  When Joe Biden entered the presidential race, he did so because he said he wants to bring back civility and unite Americans.  However, as we see regularly, Biden has anger management issues.  He lashes out at President Trump and his supporters in a way that is neither civil nor unifying.  Saturday during a drive-in rally in Pennsylvania, Biden had a real "basket of deplorables" moment.  Biden's campaign strategy consists of doing interviews with local news markets and random podcasts while remaining in his basement as much as possible.  There is little interaction with journalists assigned to cover his campaign.  Just recently, Biden began to do some campaign rallies.  His campaign rallies are not traditional campaign rallies, though.  Team Biden organizes drive-in rallies in parking lots.  Up to four people are allowed to occupy a vehicle and each vehicle is parked in a socially distanced space.  It is very 2020 and it is ridiculous.  Instead of applause from his supporters, they honk their horns to show approval for whatever word salad he is serving up.

Forget the Hunter Biden sex tapes.  The real news is much bigger than that.  GTV, a Chinese dissident billionaire's Taiwan-based media outlet, is releasing sordid, depressing videos and photographs of a person purported to be Hunter Biden engaging in sex and seemingly smoking crack.  That's not the big news.  The big news is that the same outlet claims that (a) Communist China owns Joe Biden; (b) Joe Biden sold out CIA assets in China who were then executed or imprisoned; and (c) GTV has millions of images showing other presumably influential people in comprising positions.  If all this is true, we may see a complete realignment in Western politics.

Biden Family's Corruption Is Nothing New And Largely Legal.  Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines a bribe as "1: money or favor given or promised in order to influence the judgement or conduct of a person in a position of trust; 2: something that serves to induce or influence."  Hiring the otherwise unemployable, crack smoking son of the vice president of the United States in the hope of gaining favorable opinion or treatment from the government of the United States, for example, would seem to go a long way toward fitting that definition.  Actually getting that favorable treatment would complete that definition.  That's the short version of what Ukrainian oil and gas company Burisma did with Hunter Biden.  The firing of the prosecutor pursuing a corruption investigation of the company's business practices and owner at the insistence of Hunter's dad, the then vice president, is the unambiguous second part of that hypothetical transaction.  But it's not a bribe, not legally.  Not even a pay-off.  It's a perfectly legal coincidence.

Bidens sought to pitch Dem access, influence to investors tied to Chinese military, emails show.  Records released by a former Biden family business partner reveal that Joe Biden's brother and son proposed connecting a Chinese billionaire affiliated with Beijing's military and intelligence services with top elected Democrats to advance Chinese investments in critical U.S. infrastructure.  In doing so, say China experts, the former vice president and his family endangered U.S. national security.  On Thursday [10/22/2020], Tony Bobulinski provided the FBI with records of his business correspondence with James and Hunter Biden, the brother and son of the former vice president.  Bobulinski was CEO of SinoHawk, which he describes as a joint venture partnership between the Biden family and Chinese firms connected to the government.  The documents, acquired by Just The News, appear to show the Bidens' efforts to use the family's name to sell influence to Chinese individuals tied to China's military and spy services.

Joe Biden: 'We Have Put Together the Most Extensive Voter Fraud Organization in History'.  In either one of Joe Biden's signature gaffes, or a really terrible Freudian slip, former Vice President Joe Biden asserted that they have put together the "most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of American politics."  "We have put together, and you guys did it for President Obama's administration before this, the most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of American politics," Biden said during a virtual Get Out the Vote event.  [Video clip]

Joe Biden Just Said He's Got a Great 'VOTER FRAUD Organization' Going.  Some people who have seen the hastily hatched post-COVID voter rules in Democrat states know there are some serious ballot shenanigans going on this election.  Now, Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden has wittingly — or unwittingly — confirmed it.  You just never know with Joe. [...] Biden was holding a rare campaign event — via video — when he boastfully proclaimed that his campaign operates "the most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of American politics."  [Video clip]

Joe Biden calls climate change the 'number one issue facing humanity'.  Joe Biden declared climate change the "number one issue facing humanity" and vowed a national transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy that could create millions of new jobs.  "It's the number one issue facing humanity.  And it's the number one issue for me," Biden said of climate change during an episode of Pod Save America released Saturday [10/24/2020].  He was interviewed by Dan Pfeiffer, a former senior advisor to President Barack Obama.  "Climate change is the existential threat to humanity," the former vice president said.  "Unchecked, it is going to actually bake this planet. [...]"

What if global cooling happens first?

How corrupt is FBI Director Wray?  Let me count the ways.  Now, mere days before the presidential election, we learn from Hunter Biden's abandoned hard drive that his dad Joe was up to his hair plugs in graft.  According to Hunter's emails and those of his associates, it was then VP Biden who set up the influence-peddling schemes in Russia, China, Kazakhstan and the Ukraine.  Hapless Hunter was merely the bag man while Joe Biden and his family all got a generous cut of the action.  But that's not the most shocking part of this sordid tale.  What's utterly mind-blowing is that Wray and the FBI have had Hunter Biden's hard drive in their possession since last December.  And did absolutely nothing with it.  Christopher Wray ignored all the evidence suggesting that the entire Biden clan was splitting the moolah from Hunter's no-show job in the Ukraine.  He knew the truth but stayed silent, even as President Trump was being impeached for suggesting to the Ukrainian president that he look into the sketchy Biden-Burisma doings.  Wray also kept it to himself that Joe Biden could already be compromised by numerous foreign entities.  Wray may even have looked the other way at clear evidence of child abuse, according to those who've seen the disturbing photos and videos on Hunter's hard drive.  So many potential crimes, yet Director Wray did and said nothing.

The Biden Family Scandal Is Monumental.  Let's get right to the bottom line:  Recent news raises serious questions as to whether Joe Biden broke the public's trust, exploited his position as a public official, and financially enriched the Biden family significantly from foreign business partners in China, the Ukraine, and Russia.  Before we jump into what we now know, how about a little refresher on Biden's statement last September to Fox's Peter Doocy when he asked of Biden, "how many times have you spoken to your son about his overseas business dealings?"  Biden's indignant response?  "I have never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings."  Wow.  Seems Joe didn't get the memo, "never say never" because, in fact, Biden well knew about his son Hunter's business dealings.  Indeed, it seems Papa Biden wasn't wading, he was actually knee deep, in Hunter's business affairs and also may have had some of his own going on.

Code Name 'Project Hanson': Insider Documents Reveal How Hunter Biden Associates Helped Chinese Military Contractor Acquire Michigan Dual-Use Manufacturer.  In September 2015, the Obama-Biden administration approved the sale of a strategically sensitive Michigan manufacturer, Henniges Automotive, to a firm connected to Joe Biden's son, Hunter, and a Chinese military contractor that was on an American watch list because of its close ties to the People's Liberation Army.  Hunter Biden's equity fund, backed by the Communist Chinese government, and the Chinese contractor, Aviation Industry Corporation (AVIC), needed special approval for the deal from the Committee of Foreign Investment in the U.S. (CIFIUS) because Henniges produced technology with potential military use.  AVIC entities have been sanctioned by the United States on five separate occasions since 1993 and the addition to the watch list — a major red flag — occurred less than a year-and-a-half before they co-purchased Henniges with the Biden-led Chinese joint venture known as Bohai Harvest RST (BHR).  The fact that CFIUS approved the deal is alarming given that Henniges owns numerous facilities in the United States that are now controlled by a Chinese military front company.

Joe Biden is lying:  His Ukraine policy created a conflict of interest that diplomats warned about.  The State Department raised concerns about Joe Biden's handling of Ukraine policy back in 2015, when Deputy Assistant Secretary of State George Kent said Hunter Biden's seat on the Burisma board "looks terrible" for the Obama administration.  Kent expanded on this during Trump's impeachment hearing, noting that he warned the White House "that there was the possibility of a perception of a conflict of interest" when he first heard about Hunter Biden's business dealings.  But when he raised these concerns to Joe Biden's office, he was told the vice president didn't have the "bandwidth" to deal with Hunter Biden.  Another official who testified during the impeachment proceedings — Amos Hochstein, the Obama administration's special envoy for energy policy — also raised the issue with the former vice president, according to a report by the New Yorker, reminding Joe Biden that his son's position with Burisma could undermine the United States's anti-corruption efforts in the region.

Hitting From The Left:  Trump Uses Bernie Campaign Video To Hammer Biden.  President Donald Trump hit Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden from the left on Friday evening, tweeting out a campaign video that Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) used when he was running against Biden earlier this year.  The video from Sanders, who lost the Democratic primary for president in 2020 and 2016, came from a debate back in March when he and Biden argued about Biden's record on Social Security.  "For years, Joe Biden fought to cut your Social Security and Medicare — a fact which Joe falsely denied last night," Trump tweeted.  "This video (Joe Biden's own words) was created by Bernie Sanders earlier this year to expose Joe Biden's atrocious record and egregious lies!"  [Video clip]

Hunter Biden was allegedly in possession of valuable diamond during divorce: emails.  The lawyers in Hunter Biden's divorce case sparred over his alleged possession of a large diamond given to him by a since-vanished Chinese energy tycoon, emails obtained by The [New York] Post reveal.  The correspondence shows a lawyer for Hunter's then-wife, Kathleen Buhle, demanding information about the gem in an email with the subject line "Biden — Urgent" and an importance level of "High."  "Hunter is in possession of a large and extremely valuable diamond," lawyer Rebekah Sullivan wrote on Feb. 17, 2017.  "Please provide proof that the diamond has been placed in a safety deposit box — accessible only by both parties together — by noon tomorrow or we will have no choice but to ask the court, on an emergency basis, to enjoin his further dissipation of assets, including the diamond."

CNN's Daniel Dale offers rare fact-checks of Biden, admits Trump 'correct' on Dem's anti-fracking stance.  CNN's star fact-checker Daniel Dale broke with precedent by offering multiple rulings against Joe Biden over claims the former vice president made during Thursday's final presidential debate.  Dale, who has become famous in liberal circles for his marathon fact-checks of President Trump, appeared on CNN's post-debate coverage to discuss an intense exchange when Trump pressed Biden for opposing fracking.  "I have never said that I oppose fracking," Biden firmly said.  "You said it on tape!" Trump exclaimed.  "Show the tape!  Put it on your website!" Biden challenged the president.  "The fact of the matter is, he's flat lying."  Dale appeared bewildered as he was about to credit the president for being accurate on the issue.

Did Joe Biden Use the Pseudonym "Peter Henderson" When Trading Emails with Son Hunter?  According to an exclusive report by The National Pulse, it appears Joe Biden was using the pseudonym "Peter Henderson" in his email exchanges with his family.  The National Pulse pointed out that "Peter Henderson" is the name of a KGB mole that infiltrated the US government in Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan series.

Joe Biden's "Dark Winter": Was It Code for a Smallpox Plandemic?  In my rare not rose-tinted glasses moments, I think it's time we stop calling him "Dementia Joe."  Biden may get angry, stutter and struggle to find his words, but you have to be on the ball to drop code words, twice, during a live Presidential Debate.  That's exactly what Joe did on Thursday evening when he gloomily stated, "We're about to go into a dark winter."  Then he repeated it again:  "A Dark Winter."  What are the odds that he'd "accidentally" use the exact code name for a 2001 simulation of a "smallpox attack on U. S. Citizens."  I don't know about you, but I usually refer to Winter as cold or snowy, not dark.  In my more Laura Ingalls Wilder moments, I may even use the phrase "long hard winter."  Joe's odd phrasing was enough to get red-pilled Americans Googling.

Data Shows Number One Online Story in America About Debate Is Biden Corruption.  President Donald Trump's attacks about Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden's son, Hunter, were "by far the dominant storyline" online about the presidential debate this week, Axios revealed Saturday, citing social media interactions tallied by NewsWhip. [...] Social media interactions on stories about Hunter and Bobulinski reportedly stood at 1.3 million, far more than the discussions (nearly 545,000) over the second-place topic.  During Thursday's debate, President Trump accused Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden of a pay-for-play scheme in Ukraine and China related to his son's business dealings in those two countries.

Hunter CCP Sex Tape Released.  The purpose of making this video known, according to Gnews, is to demonstrate how compromised the Bidens are in terms of being subject to the control of the CCP, which arranged this blackmail video operation while negotiating public and private deals worth millions and billions with then Vice President Biden and his son Hunter Biden.

Barry Off the Bench!.  [Scroll down]  Moreover, Biden's son, Hunter, has given "the big guy" the added problems of an abandoned laptop and a disgruntled former business partner.  These matters could prove that the Biden family members, including "the big guy," have peddled influence for a pretty penny to America's enemies.  Or so rumor has it, since the elitist leftist media refuses to mention the matter, calling it "Russian disinformation," "hacking," a "distraction" and, indeed, anything but what it is — authentic evidence of corruption.  Still, if the rotten Biden family tree falls in the forest and the media covers it — with a blanket — will it make a sound?  They are counting on a "no" answer to that question.  But they're also hedging their bets.

Here Are 11 of Joe Biden's Biggest Debate Lies.  BIDEN: "Look, there are 50 former National Intelligence folks who said that what this, he's accusing me of is a Russian plan.  They have said that this has all the characteristics — four — five former heads of the CIA, both parties, say what he's saying is a bunch of garbage."  FACT: The evidence that the Hunter Biden emails exposing Joe Biden as the head of a crime family trading off his role as vice president to get rich continue to be verified — and done so on-the-record, including pollster Frank Luntz.  Most importantly, neither Joe Biden nor Hunter Biden nor the Biden campaign have said the emails are not real.

Joe Biden Promises to Push Elected Officials into Issuing Mask Mandates Nationwide.  Former Vice President Joe Biden is promising that, if elected, he would urge state and local governments to issue mask mandates nationwide.  The Democrat nominee, who has shifted on his support for a federal mask mandate, told supporters in Delaware on Friday that it was vital for the government to implement a "national strategy to position our country to finally get ahead of this virus."  As part of the strategy, the former vice president promised not only to get a spending bill, that deals with both the economic and public safety aspects of the novel coronavirus, through Congress by January, but also to push for comprehensive mask mandates.

Louisiana Senator Responds to Joe Biden's Proposed Climate Shutdown of the US Fossil Fuel Industry.  I think it is fair to say Presidential wannabe Joe Biden has stirred up some strong feelings over his plan to "transition" the jobs of millions of ordinary Americans. [...] To be fair Joe Biden has a plan for the "transitioned" oil and gas workers.  Biden wants everyone currently working in well paid oil, coal and gas jobs to go on welfare, and accept government handouts, until they get new jobs as professional software developers.

Blockbuster Report Reveals How Biden Family Was Compromised By China.  In a day when half the US population remained transfixed by the ongoing revelations about the contents of Hunter Biden's "laptop from hell" and the other half was doing everything in its power to ignore the news which the socials have conveniently been desperate to censor, a far less noticed but perhaps just as important investigative report authored by the unknown Typhoon Investigations, was released by Christopher Balding, Associate Professor at Peking University HSBC School of Business Shenzhen, China and also Bloomberg contributor (which is odd considering the clear anti-Trump bias of the Bloomberg media empire) exposing Biden activities in China which "the press has simply refused to cover", and which reveals "how Biden was compromised by the Communist Party of China."  In a series of tweets around noon on Thursday, Balding said that he had really "not wanted to do this but roughly 2 months ago I was handed a report about Biden activities in China the press has simply refused to cover.  I want to strongly emphasize I did not write the report but I know who did."

'Don't Mention Joe Being Involved': Bombshell Texts Show Effort To Hide Joe Biden's Involvement In Hunter's Business Deals.  Explosive texts from a Biden family business associate discuss how to conceal the involvement of former Vice President Joe Biden in a deal being planned with a Chinese Communist government-linked firm.  Biden has repeatedly claimed that he knew nothing about any of Hunter Biden's foreign business activities.  "Don't mention Joe being involved, it's only when you are face to face," reads a text from Hunter Biden's business partner to another business associate.  The two are discussing putting together a deal between SinoHawk, which was a Biden family company reportedly named in part for China and in part for Beau Biden's favorite animal.

Hunter Biden laptop scandal — Even if Joe Biden wins, there's no way out now.  Thanks to Hunter Biden, there's no way out for his father.  Even if Joe Biden, the Democratic presidential nominee, is elected president, damning evidence will continue to emerge that his grifter-son fully embraced the Washington tradition of shameless influence-peddling.  If nothing else, Hunter is a monument to greed.  An ellipse should be erected in his honor.  But the unresolved and trenchant questions are:  how much did Joe Biden know and to what extent was he involved in the illicit (if not illegal) schemes?

Joe Biden Told 32 Lies In 96 Minutes Last Night.  The reviews we've seen of last night's debate seem to suggest that President Trump got the better of Joe Biden by a handy margin, and that's more or less what we saw.  We thought Trump missed a couple of opportunities here and there, particularly for example when the topic was race and Biden was attempting to wriggle off the hook on the 1994 crime bill — we were thinking that if Trump had brought up Biden's old "racial jungle" statement it could have burned him to the ground.  And on substance, we're pretty sure that Biden committed a grave, perhaps fatal error toward the end when he declared war on oil and gas.

If You Don't Know That 'Coyotes' Are Human Smugglers, Shut Up About The Border.  On Thursday night [10/22/2020] when Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden angrily accused President Trump of a "criminal" family separation policy that had "lost track" of more than 500 migrant children at the U.S.-Mexico border, he was repeating an inaccurate and misleading news report that had circulated earlier this week. [...] The former vice president was likely relying on a brief report from NPR about the latest development in a lawsuit between the ACLU and the Justice Department regarding the status of children who have still not been reunited with their parents after being brought across the border illegally.  The report claims that "the parents of 545 children still can't be found," but that's not quite right.  The NPR report omitted a statement issued by Department of Homeland Security spokesperson Chase Jennings explaining that in fact the vast majority of these parents have been found but have refused reunification with their children, which is why the children are still in DHS custody.

The Editor says...
He was relying on NPR?  There's the problem!

The Mainstream Press Is Desperate To Help Joe Biden, Even If It Means A Media Blackout.  It's hard to imagine a media establishment more corrupt and insular than the American political press, which refuses to cover one of the biggest political stories of the 2020 presidential election unfolding just weeks before Election Day.  Despite the best efforts of the corporate media and Big Tech, the story of Hunter Biden's emails keeps getting out there, and with each passing day it gets worse for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.  Of course, the story is not just about the younger Biden's emails anymore.  It's about the extent of Joe Biden's role in what can only be described as a massive foreign corruption scheme worth tens of millions of dollars.  On Thursday morning, news broke that one of Hunter Biden's former business partners, Tony Bobulinski, whose name appears in the trove of emails uncovered by the New York Post last week, verified the authenticity of those emails, which include details about a lucrative deal in May 2017 with a Chinese energy firm that appears to have included the elder Biden as an equity partner.

The Biden family business.  Joe Biden has denied any involvement in Hunter's business dealings, including his dealings with CEFC China Energy (CEFC), and any claim that he stood to gain from such dealings.  Yet Bobulinski has produced a May 2017 "expectations" document showing Hunter receiving 20 percent of the equity in a venture with the Chinese and holding another 10 percent for "the big guy," i.e.  Joe Biden.  The deal, which apparently fell through, involved CEFC, which had close connections with the Chinese government and military. [...] Clearly, Joe Biden is lying when he denies involvement in Hunter's business.  Indeed, he appears to have called at least some of the shots.  Emails from Hunter himself confirm that the deal with CEFC was a Biden family affair.

Biden's biggest asset is his lie-ability.  Biden claimed he has never opposed fracking.  That's not true.  Even CNN's fact checker said so.  Biden also asserted that not a single person lost his private health insurance under Obamacare.  That's not true.  As Scott points out, Politifact named Obama's promise that "if you like your health plan, you can keep it" the lie of the year in 2013.  President Obama apologized for saying this.  Yet, there was Joe Biden regurgitating the lie last night.  He must figure (1) the American people have short memories and (2) the mainstream media won't refresh them.  Lie number three is Biden's claim that he didn't condemn Trump's shutdown of travel from China in January as "xenophobic."  Biden's denial is not true.  Biden accused Trump of "xenophobic fear mongering" for banning travel from China.  Biden's lying did not stop with these three whoppers.  In fact, it commenced with the third sentence out of Biden's mouth last night.

Harris in spin mode after Trump wastes no time calling Biden's bluff on fracking.  The campaign of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and running mate Sen. Kamala Harris of California shifted into political spin mode Friday to push back against claims by President Donald Trump's campaign that they both want to ban fracking.  "Joe Biden is not gonna ban fracking," Harris told reporters as she prepared to travel to Georgia for a campaign event in Atlanta.  "He's gonna deal with the oil subsidies but that's... you know, the president likes to put everything out of context.  "But let's be clear:  What Joe was talking about was banning subsidies, but he will not ban fracking in America," she added.

The Editor says...
Mr. Biden says he wants to eliminate the use of fossil fuels.  During the primary race, he said he wanted to ban fracking.

It Will Be Hard to Carry Pennsylvania.  ...or Ohio, or New Mexico, not to mention Texas, North Dakota or Louisiana (not that he was going to win them anyway) now that Joe Biden has made it clear that he wants to destroy the oil and gas industries.  Note, too, that Colorado, a state counted on by Democrats, produces four percent of American oil.  The Trump campaign quickly followed up on Biden's admission in last night's debate:  [Video clip]  I'd like to see similar ads in other states, especially Colorado and New Mexico.  It would be lunacy to do away with oil and gas.  Why on Earth would Joe Biden and many other Democrats, including Kamala Harris, advocate such an impractical idea?  I think it is because they live in a bubble in which the fantasy of "green" energy is accepted as reality.

Just a reminder, Biden really did say he'd ban fracking.  Oh, and "get rid of fossil fuels.".  Don't worry fellow Scrantonites, just put down that wrench and pick up a keyboard!  You'll find that coding and fracking aren't all that different.  You'll still work with your hands, only instead of being outside in the sunshine using heavy machinery and wishing for more hours, you'll be inside in a dimly lit cubicle using a computer and wishing for the sweet embrace of death.  Here's a supercut of Biden being very moderate regarding energy and climate change that you might want to keep handy as well.  [Video clip]

Trump: Biden Will 'Destroy the Oil Industry'.  "Would you close down the oil industry?" President Donald Trump asked Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden at their final debate Thursday night [10/22/2020].  "By the way, I have a transition from the oil industry, yes," Biden told Trump.  "Oh, that's a big statement," Trump said.  "I will transition.  It is a big statement," Biden agreed.  "Because I would stop--"  "Why would you do that?" moderator Kristin Welker asked Biden.  "Because the oil industry pollutes, significantly," Biden told her.  "Oh, I see.  Okay," Trump said.  "That's a big statement," he repeated.  "He is going to destroy the oil industry.  Will you remember that Texas?  Will you remember that Pennsylvania, Oklahoma?" Trump asked.

Trump asks, 'Will you remember that, Texas?' as Biden vows 'transition' from oil.  Former Vice President Joe Biden said at the final presidential debate Thursday night that he would make the US "transition" from the oil industry if elected president to fight against pollution.  Biden was asked about climate change and if regulations would hurt job creation by host Kristen Welker when Trump pushed him with an off-the-cuff question about the oil industry.  "I would transition from the oil industry, yes," Biden said.  "That's a big statement," Trump chided the former vice president.  Host Kristen Welker asked Biden why he would do that.  "Because the oil industry pollutes, significantly," Biden said.  "It has to be replaced by renewable energy over time, over time.  I'd stop giving them federal subsidies."

The Editor says...
How did Joe Biden get to the debate venue?  Did he arrive in an electric car?  Did he ride a bicycle?  No, he rode in a gas-guzzling SUV, surrounded by half a dozen more vehicles just like it, and they all ran on gasoline.

Harris, prominent Democrats listed as 'key contacts' for Biden family business venture projects.  A list of "key domestic contacts" for a joint venture involving Jim and Hunter Biden and now-bankrupt CEFC China Energy Co. included former Vice President Joe Biden's current running mate Sen. Kamala Harris, among other prominent Democrats, Fox News has learned.  An email exclusively obtained by Fox News, with the subject line "Phase one domestic contacts/ projects" and dated May 15, 2017, Biden's brother, Jim Biden, shared a list of "key domestic contacts for phase one target projects."  The email is unrelated to the laptop or hard drive purportedly belonging to Hunter Biden, the former vice president's son.

Biden lectures us on character?  C'mon man!  In the midst of what is becoming a huge scandal, the Biden family's long record of using their positions of power to get fabulously rich, Biden touted his character!  As Daniel Greenfield notes in his must-read article, "[t]he Biden family is notorious for being the crookedest clan not only in Delaware but in DC."  Greenfield goes on to explain that the Biden "clan" has been all about using their positions of power to enrich themselves for decades.  That the mainstream press is still refusing to report on the Hunter Biden laptop texts and emails is a sad testament to the left's success at Mao-izing America.  There can no longer be any doubt that the Democrats put party before country, politics before ethics and virtue. [...] The evidence of Biden's profiteering is overwhelming.  It is all true; it's been true for years and years.  And everyone in Delaware and D.C. has known it.  Even left publications like Politico reported on it when no one thought Biden would become the nominee.

The Unspeakable Corruption of Joe Biden.  The latest revelation of Biden's financial corruption comes from Hunter Biden's former "business associate," Tony Bobulinski.  Last night, Bobulinski released a statement claiming that "the former vice president was a willing and eager participant in a family scheme to make millions of dollars by partnering with a shady Chinese Communist firm," according to NY Post columnist Michael Goodwin and other news outlets who haven't spent the last week studiously avoiding perhaps the biggest story of financial corruption in American presidential election history.

Joe Biden scored $16 million in income after leaving White House ... but where did it go?  Joe Biden's personal finances — at least as he lists them publicly for voters — don't add up.  The politician who reveled in the moniker "Middle Class Joe" carried a relatively modest portfolio during 47 years in public office.  But he scored a $16 million-plus windfall after he left the Obama White House.  That includes $11 million he and his wife Jill earned in 2017, mostly on book and speaking fees, $4.6 million in 2018 and $985,000 last year, according to tax returns he made public earlier in the election.  But when he filed a federal financial disclosure form earlier this year to run for president, the Bidens listed only assets of between $1.5 million and $3.2 million.  And that invites the question:  Where did the rest of the money go?

Joe Biden: 'I Have Not Taken a Penny from any Foreign Source'.  Former Vice President Joe Biden asserted on Thursday [10/22/2020] that he had "not taken a penny from any foreign source" in response to recent allegations that his family had benefited from lucrative foreign dealings during the Obama administration.  Biden was pressed at the final presidential debate of the general election about recent revelations that his youngest son, Hunter, pursued foreign deals in countries like China and Ukraine.  The former vice president denied the allegations by suggesting, in part, that they were part of a Russian disinformation campaign before quickly asserting that he, personally, had never received money from a foreign entity or nation.

CEO of Hunter Biden-tied firm agrees to provide documents to Senate.  The top executive of a Hunter Biden-connected firm has agreed to provide documents to a Senate committee that purportedly show Joe Biden was designed to be a silent beneficiary in one of his son's Chinese ventures.  The Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee sent a request for documents Wednesday [10/21/2020] to Sinohawk Holdings chief executive officer Tony Bobulinski.  Bobulinski says that a 2017 email recovered from a laptop purportedly belonging to Hunter Biden and made public by Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani is accurate:  Joe Biden and Hunter Biden were each supposed to receive an equity stake in his venture.

Now [the] Corruption Story Is About Joe, Not Hunter.  At this hour many news consumers remain trapped behind the Silicon Curtain.  Nevertheless word continues to spread about the Biden family business, thanks to an underground publication founded by Alexander Hamilton in 1801.  The latest story from the New York Post, which shares common ownership with the Journal, comes courtesy of veteran columnist Michael Goodwin.  He reports a statement from a Biden business partner who says that Joe Biden was involved in the family influence-peddling racket, including with China.  [Paywall]

Hunter Biden's Partner:  The Bidens Made Millions off of China Deals.  We now have more corroboration of the New York Post's Hunter Biden reporting than we do for any of the Russiagate pieces that dominated our news coverage for four straight years.  Michael Goodwin reports in the New York Post today [10/22/2020] that Tony Bobulinski, a former business partner of Hunter Biden, has given a statement not only confirming the authenticity of emails regarding Hunter's schemes, but explaining that Joe Biden is, in fact, "the big guy" referred to in that correspondence.  Bobulinski claims Hunter told him that his father signed off on deals with Chinese Communist firms there were struck while Hunter was leveraging his dad's position in the Obama administration.

NY Post:  Former Business Partner of Hunter Biden Says Joe Biden Was In On Family Deal 'to Make Millions' From China.  A former business partner of Hunter Biden has issued a statement to The New York Post, asserting that the Biden family, including Joe, Hunter and Joe's brother James, "aggressively leveraged the Biden family name to make millions of dollars from foreign entities even though some were from communist controlled China."  The statement from Tony Bobulinski was published overnight.  Bobulinski says he was one of the recipients of the May 13, 2017 email detailing an equity distribution, including this line; "10 held by H for the big guy?"  H is Hunter, and "the big guy" is Joe Biden, Bobulinski said.  Bobulinski, in his statement obtained by The New York Post, says reports of Hunter and Joe's business dealings "are not any form of domestic or foreign disinformation," and he says he knows this "because I lived it."

I met Joe Biden for an hour to talk about his family business in China [...] claims Hunter's former business partner.  President Donald Trump's campaign pulled off another pre-debate surprise Thursday, putting a former business partner of Hunter Biden on camera to level the charge that Joe Biden was 'familiar' with his son's business dealings in China.  Former Hunter Biden business partner Tony Bobulinski spoke to reporters at the Marriott in downtown Nashville three hours before start time of the final presidential debate — and said he will turn over three cell phones to the FBI and meet with Republican senators about his former business deals.  He said he was angry with Hunter after he wanted to use funds for a prospective deal with a Chinese energy company was his 'Hunter's personal piggy bank.'

FBI asks to interview Hunter Biden's ex-associate Bobulinski, Senate committee says.  The FBI has agreed to interview former Hunter Biden business associate Tony Bobulinski, Bobulinski's lawyers told the Senate Homeland Security Committee, which released a statement Friday [10/23/2020].  The FBI has asked Bobulinski, who went on the record Thursday to accuse former Vice President Joe Biden of lying about his involvement with his son's business dealings, to turn over copies of his phones, according to the committee.  The FBI declined to comment "in keeping with our standard practice of neither confirming nor denying the existence of an investigation."  A senior administration official told Fox News that Bobulinski or his lawyers reached out to the FBI about a meeting, not the other way around.

With confirmation on Hunter's influence-peddling, Joe Biden has explaining to do.  Democrats and their media allies have tried to dismiss The Post's work as "Russian disinformation," and the ludicrous tag led Tony Bobulinski to send us a nearly 700-word statement on Wednesday [10/21/2020].  "The facts set forth below are true and accurate; they are not any form of domestic or foreign disinformation.  Any suggestion to the contrary is false and offensive," Bobulinski begins, adding later:  "I could no longer allow my family's name to be associated or tied to Russian disinformation or implied lies and false narratives dominating the media right now."  He reveals, "I am the recipient of the email published seven days ago by the New York Post which showed a copy to Hunter Biden and Rob Walker.  That email is genuine."

How Hunter Biden's financial paper trail exploded to 45,000 pages at the Treasury Dept..  The amount of confidential documents held by the U.S. government on Hunter Biden's various overseas money transfers is so abundant that Senate Republicans could publish only a small portion in an explosive Sept. 23 report, a congressional source said.  The source told The Washington Times that Hunter Biden's myriad million-dollar deals with China are so complicated that the staff focused on what could be traced quickly and published in an 87-page report by the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee.  "The vast majority of material" remains unpublished, the source said, adding that the information would not be released soon.  The report contains only a "small subset of material," the congressional source said.

Biden pressed over debate comment that he would 'transition from the oil industry'.  After the final debate on Thursday night, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden was pressed by reporters on his comments about fossil fuels, following his remarks that he plans to "transition from the oil industry."  "Eventually we're going to have to [get rid of] oil, but we're not getting rid of fossil fuels.  We're getting rid of the subsidies for fossil fuels, but we're not getting rid of fossil fuels for a long time," Biden said in response to a CNN reporter.  "It will not be gone for ... probably 2050."  The post-debate exchange came as Biden briefly spoke with the press as he walked to his plane.  Biden has been consistent through the campaign on his plans to set the United States on a path to zero-emissions by 2050 while not banning fracking in the immediate future.

The Editor says...
What's that?  "Biden briefly spoke with the press as he walked to his plane."  What does the airplane use for fuel?

Desperate Joe buys 'Hunter Biden Laptop' ads on Google.  Right after the presidential debate Thursday night, Press California Google searched "Hunter Biden Laptop."  The first thing to pop up on our phone in California was this ad from the Biden campaign, sending users to a New York Times diversionary piece that refers to a Senate investigation that didn't include more recent revelations regarding the laptop.  Joe Biden knows he's in for it.  Not even the Dem-NYT-Google axis can protect him.  His campaign might have wised up that such a keyword purchase wasn't a good idea.

Trump Was in Command While Biden Told a Bunch of Whoppers.  Trump cleaned Biden's clock on a few issues, while Biden more frequently hoisted himself on his own petard.  The president did a good job of standing back and letting Biden dig himself into a hole.  When Trump called him out on previous statements Biden had made, the Democrat merely claimed he never made those statements.  Trump put the Democrat on the defensive even before the debate began by bringing Tony Bobulinski to the debate as his guest.  Bobulinski is the CEO of Sinohawk Holdings, a company he founded with CEFC China Energy and the Biden family.  He came forward on Thursday to corroborate the damning emails discovered on Hunter Biden's laptop.  Among other things, Bobulinski claimed that Joe Biden was personally involved in the nefarious business deals Hunter Biden and James Biden (the then-vice president's brother) undertook in foreign countries like Ukraine and China.

Biden's Campaign Blew Up in a Bad Way.  [Scroll down]  Biden was pushed into claiming that the laptop of his son retrieved from a computer repair shop in Wilmington, Delaware was a plant created by the Russians.  Although it appears that the Bidens collected approximately $10 million from Russia, China, and Ukraine while Joe Biden was vice president, the Democratic nominee solemnly declared that there was "nothing unethical" in his son's conduct.  Biden clung to the moth-eaten fraud that the allegations against his son were Russian disinformation (despite U.S. intelligence community denials), [...] At one point in the exchange, at Biden's invitation, Trump promised to post video evidence of Biden promising to ban fracking.  And Trump promptly did.  More importantly, though, Biden pledged zero carbon emissions in the United States by 2035, which means the total elimination of the oil and gas industries in all forms by then.  This statement in itself should have won Trump the election; it almost certainly delivers Pennsylvania to him.

Fact check: Biden falsely claims he never opposed fracking.  Facts First:  It's false that Biden never said he opposed fracking.  In two Democratic primary debates, Biden made confusing remarks over fracking that his campaign had to clarify.  In 2019, Biden said "we would make sure it's eliminated" when asked about the future of coal and fracking; in 2020 he said he opposed "new fracking." Biden's written plan, conversely, never included a full ban on fracking or even on new fracking.  Rather, it proposes "banning new oil and gas permitting on public lands and waters" — not ending all new fracking anywhere or ending all existing fracking on public lands and waters.

Biden pledges 'transition' from oil industry.  Democratic nominee Joe Biden said he would transition away from the oil and gas industry over time as part of his climate plans, opening the door to Trump campaign criticism in the election's final stretch.  "I would transition from the oil industry, yes," Biden said during back-and-forth sparring with President Trump over climate change during Thursday night's [10/22/2020] debate.  "That's a big statement," Trump said in response.  "It is a big statement," Biden added.  He then said that oil "pollutes significantly" and "has to be replaced by renewable energy over time."  Biden also said he would end federal subsidies for oil.  Trump, previewing a message his campaign is likely to use in the next week and a half, argued Biden was admitting that "he's going to destroy the oil industry," calling on Texas and Pennsylvania to "remember that."  Already, some oil-state Democrats running in tight races are distancing themselves from Biden's comments.

Questions Joe Biden Should Answer About Hunter's Emails.  First, Joe Biden's Praetorian Guard in the media argued that the New York Post's Hunter Biden scoop was "Russian disinformation."  The DOJ, FBI and DNI each publicly disagreed.  No one in the Biden camp has denied the veracity of a single email thus far.  Yet, as of this writing, the Post's Twitter account is still frozen, and most major news outlets won't report the story.  The next deflection was to play on your emotions:  "How dare you mock a father struggling with the addiction of his son?!"  This isn't about Hunter's addictions, predilections or life choices, but about his favor-trading, and whether a presidential candidate benefited from them during his tenure as vice president of the United States.  We shouldn't mock those with addiction, but a person isn't inoculated from scrutiny merely because he's an addict, either.  Today, a Wisconsin reporter finally asked Biden what he thought about Senator Ron Johnson accusing his family of profiting from Hunter's shady arrangements.

Joe Biden Claims 'Laptop from Hell' is 'Russian Disinformation,' Without Evidence.  CLAIM: Joe Biden claimed the "laptop from hell" with Hunter Biden's emails is "Russian disinformation."  VERDICT: FALSE.  There is no evidence that the laptop is Russian disinformation, and the emails have been corroborated.

Is The Biden Scandal The Reason Democrats Pushed Voters To Cast Ballots Before Election Day?  Democrats campaigned this year for mail-in and early voting as if it were the most important issue in politics.  Now we think we know why:  They wanted voters to make their selections before Bidengate arrived.  As of Tuesday [10/20/2020], more than 41 million ballots have already been cast, two full weeks before Election Day, and about 30% of the total cast in the 2016 presidential election.  How many of those votes were decided before the Hunter Biden email scandal emerged?  We'd guess quite a few.  One report says that Democratic-affiliated voters have returned their ballots at roughly a 1.4-to-1 ratio over Republican-affiliated voters.

Jaw-Dropping Report Details Chinese State-Owned Company's Partnership With Biden, Kerry Families.  A nearly 60-page intelligence report dated October 2 and provided to RedState late Wednesday details the relationship between multiple Chinese State-Owned Entities (SOE's) and companies owned by Hunter Biden, Chris Heinz (stepson of former Secretary of State John Kerry), Devon Archer, James Bulger, and suspected Chinese intelligence asset Michael Lin.  Despite what Hunter Biden's attorney claimed in 2019, Hunter started traveling to China shortly before the Big Guy became Vice President and signed contracts with SOE's while the Big Guy was Vice President.

Trove Of Documents Shows Biden Family Links To Chinese Business Deal.  A former business partner of Hunter Biden's has provided a trove of business records to Senate investigators about their deals with a Chinese energy company, including one document that touts the "political and strategic value of the Biden family" to a $10 million investment project.  Tony Bobulinski, the former Biden associate, said in a statement on Wednesday that he provided the documents to the Senate Homeland Security Committee.  In his statement, he asserted that Hunter Biden and his uncle, James Biden, "aggressively leveraged" their family name to secure foreign business deals.  The DCNF has obtained the documents, which include letters, text messages and emails showing Biden and his partners discussing a partnership with CEFC, a Chinese energy firm chaired by Ye Jianming.

Jim Jordan: 'We Know Beyond a Shadow of a Doubt the Laptop is Hunter's and the Emails Are Real'.  Congressman Jim Jordan weighed-in Thursday morning [10/22/2020] on the growing scandal surrounding Hunter Biden; saying he knows "beyond a shadow of a doubt" that those emails and laptop are authentic and not part of a Russian propaganda campaign.  "We now know beyond a shadow of a doubt, the laptop is, in fact, Hunter Biden's; the emails are, in fact, accurate; the 'big guy' referenced in one of the emails is, in fact, Joe Biden," said Jordan.

As Hunter Associate Steps Forward, NBC Still Claims Story 'Unverified'.  NBC chief White House correspondent Hallie Jackson was a grade-A fake news sprayer Thursday night [10/22/2020], just before the debate as NBC Nightly News was the only evening newscast still desperately trying to defend Joe Biden for the Hunter Biden scandal laptop scandal.  She continued to push the long-debunked claim that the emails were "unverified" and just "a foreign disinformation campaign," the same day a former Hunter business associate came forward with new texts and confirmed the story.  Speaking on what to expect at the final presidential debate later that night, Jackson scoffed at President Trump's strategy of bringing up the Biden family's corruption:  [Lengthy quote omitted for brevity, among other things]  Jackson would later note that Trump planned to "bring a former business associate of Hunter Biden's" as his guest to the debate, and political director Chuck Todd griped about Trump's "special guest" later on.  But none of them cared to tell their viewers more about him.  That's where Fox News Channel's Mike Emanuel and Special Report come in. [...]

CEO of Hunter Biden-tied firm agrees to provide documents to Senate.  The top executive of a Hunter Biden-connected firm has agreed to provide documents to a Senate committee that purportedly show Joe Biden was designed to be a silent beneficiary in one of his son's Chinese ventures.  The Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee sent a request for documents Wednesday to Sinohawk Holdings chief executive officer Tony Bobulinski.  Bobulinski says that a 2017 email recovered from a laptop purportedly belonging to Hunter Biden and made public by Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani is accurate:  Joe Biden and Hunter Biden were each supposed to receive an equity stake in his venture.  Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., the chairman of the committee, told Just the News on Thursday [10/22/2020] that Bobulinski has agreed to respond to the panel's request seeking documents to help corroborate his story.

Biden Declares He Would 'Transition' America Away from Oil Industry during Debate.  President Trump and rival Joe Biden sparred over environmental policy at the end of the presidential debate on Thursday, with Biden indicating he would "transition" away from dependence on oil.  "Would he close down the oil industry?" Trump asked.  "Would you close down the oil industry?"  "I would transition from the oil industry, yes," Biden responded.  "That's a big statement," Trump commented.  "It is a big statement, because... the oil industry pollutes, significantly," Biden responded.  "It has to be replaced by renewable energy over time," Biden added.  "And I'd stop giving to the oil industry — I'd stop giving them federal subsidies.  [Trump] won't give federal subsidies to solar and wind.  Why are we giving it to the oil industry?"  However, the former vice president proceeded to deny that he would ban fracking, despite having promised to do so several times during the Democratic primaries.

Joe Biden Checks Watch As Debate Ends.  Presidential candidate Joe Biden visibly checked his watch during Thursday night's presidential debate.  As moderator Kristen Welker began to ask the candidates a question about climate change, Biden shifted his shirt sleeve up and checked his watch for a moment.  Twitter users compared the move to a similar moment in 1992 when former President George Bush Sr. checked his own watch during a debate with former President Bill Clinton and Texas billionaire Ross Perot.  When Bush checked his watch, the move was criticized as demonstrating impatience with the debate.

Hunter Biden Business Partner Confirms Email Showing Joe Was Offered 10 Percent Stake in Chinese Business Deal.  The recipient of an email that purportedly detailed a business arrangement between a Chinese company and the Biden family confirmed on Thursday [10/22/2020] that the email is "genuine" and said the family "aggressively leveraged the Biden family name to make millions" from foreign entities.  Tony Bobulinski, who is listed as a recipient of the email first published by the New York Post, offered further detail in a statement to Fox News on the correspondence, which references a proposed equity split:  "20" for "H" and "10 held by H for the big guy?"  "The reference to 'the Big Guy' in the much publicized May 13, 2017, email is in fact a reference to Joe Biden," said Bobulinski, who says he was brought on as CEO of Sinohawk Holdings by Hunter Biden and James Gilliar, the sender of the email.

Biden Business Associate Tony Bobulinski Drops Another Bomb Right Before Debate.  Former Biden business associate Tony Bobulinski pretty much blew the story wide open Wednesday night when he confirmed that yes, Joe Biden was actually very involved in Hunter Biden's business deals and that Joe Biden wasn't telling us the truth when he claimed he never talked to Hunter about his business.

Biden Confronted at Debate over Hunter's Dealings, Issues Blanket Denials.  Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden on Thursday called Rudy Giuliani a "Russian pawn" and claimed stories of his involvement in his son's foreign business dealings are "not true," saying he has "not taken a penny from any foreign source in my life."  The comments came during the final presidential debate on Thursday evening.  Earlier in the day the recipient of an email that purportedly detailed a business arrangement between a Chinese company and the Biden family confirmed that the email is "genuine" and said the family "aggressively leveraged the Biden family name to make millions" from foreign entities.  Giuliani provided a trove of documents to the New York Post last week that includes a number of emails between Hunter Biden and foreign business partners.  One email exchange between the younger Biden and representatives of a Chinese energy firm reads, "20" for "H" and "10 held by H for the big guy?"  Tony Bobulinski, who is listed as a recipient of the email, told Fox News that the "big guy" is a reference to Joe Biden, who was slated to receive a ten percent equity stake in the joint venture.  VG9ueSBCb2J1bGluc2tpIGRpZCBub3Qga2lsbCBoaW1zZWxmLg==

Hunter's ex-partner Tony Bobulinski:  Joe Biden's a liar and here's the proof.  Hunter Biden's ex-business associate Tony Bobulinski accused Democratic nominee Joe Biden of lying about his involvement in his family's overseas dealings in a stunning appearance just 90 minutes before Thursday evening's presidential debate.  "I have heard Joe Biden say he has never discussed his dealings with Hunter.  That is false.  I have firsthand knowledge about this because I directly dealt with the Biden family, including Joe Biden," Bobulinski said following The Post's bombshell reporting on Hunter Biden's private emails.  Bobulinski, who will be a guest of President Trump at the debate, showed three phones spanning 2015 to 2018 as evidence and said he would be meeting with the Senate and the FBI to hand over electronics.

"Who Paid For You to Be Here?!" — Hostile Reporter Shouts at Biden Whistleblower Tony Bobulinski After Impromptu Presser.  Hunter Biden's associate and whistleblower Tony Bobulinski held an impromptu presser on Thursday evening [10/22/2020].  Tony Bobulinski is the CEO of Sinohawk Holdings which was a partnership between the Chinese operating through CEFC/Chairman Ye and the Biden family.  Bobulinski confirmed the Hunter Biden emails were authentic and said the Bidens went behind his back and got paid millions by the Chinese in side deals.  Bobulinski revealed that he was introduced to "the Big Guy" AKA Joe Biden and was told about Biden crime family's influence peddling business with the communist Chinese.

The more you know about Biden, the ickier he is.  We've long known that Joe Biden is a man with unseemly habits.  He sniffs and fondles little girls, swims naked in front of female Secret Service agents, and has a legitimate sexual assault claim hanging over him.  If the Biden hard drive documents are legitimate (and they seem to be), he used his drug-addicted son as a bagman for bribes from foreign governments and businesses and knew that his son was inappropriate with underage girls.

Censorship Of The Biden Story.  The destruction of journalistic ethics is nearly complete.  The same group of reporters and pundits who rushed to report every rumor, every speculation, every lie about Donald Trump for the last four years now close ranks and refuse to report the emerging allegations about the Biden family.  Hunter Biden's abandoned laptops have been a treasure trove of inside information about his reported influence peddling and shady deals, based entirely on his status as son of the vice president.  It is obvious that Joe Biden supported his son's dealings, and it may also be the case that the "big guy" directly profited from them.  And it is now beyond question that Joe Biden used the power of his office to bully Ukraine to end an investigation into corruption at the energy firm Burisma, where his son inexplicably was a board member.

Donald Trump Won the Debate.  [Scroll down]  Biden's nose grew when he boasted that "not one single person with private insurance would lose their insurance under my plan, nor did they under Obamacare."  When over a million Americans lost their plans in 2013 in the wake of the passage of Obamacare, PolitiFact famously dubbed President Obama's if-you-like-your-plan-you-can-keep-your-plan rhetoric as its "lie of the year."  "I have never said I opposed fracking," Biden maintained.  He challenged Trump to show the tape.  The moment the debate ended, Trump did just that by tweeting out video of Biden pushing for a ban on fracking on numerous occasions.  Biden, who boasted "my reputation is for honor and telling the truth," did not tell the truth here.  More importantly, the energy issue revealed the extent to which the Democratic nominee embraces fringe positions.

Biden relying on everyone else to campaign for him.  On Wednesday, Joe Biden, yet again, could not leave his basement in order to talk to or campaign to the American people.  He is too busy working out his plan for how to respond to Trump's accusations about Hunter Biden at the debate.  Those accusations that the mainstream media refuses to question Joe about.  Instead, Biden has resorted to letting everyone else do the work for him.  For the first time, former President Barack Obama spoke out on behalf of Biden.  His comments in Pennsylvania were celebrated by mainstream media outlets everywhere.

Hunter Biden's 'don't mention Joe' ex-partner to be Trump's debate guest.  President Trump has invited former Hunter Biden business associate Tony Bobulinski to Thursday night's debate against Democratic challenger Joe Biden, sources said.  Bobulinski will be a guest of the commander in chief at the second and final showdown between Trump and Biden in Nashville.  Fox News first reported the detail Thursday, and a source told The Post Trump was "bringing" him.  Trump plans to point to Bobulinski when he brings up the much-scrutinized overseas business dealings of his son, Hunter — exposed by The Post — during the debate.  The Post last week published a trove of Hunter Biden emails that appear to detail his dealings with Ukraine and China — and undermine his father's repeated claims that they never discussed such matters.

Biden Whistleblower Emails:  Chinese Energy Company Gave $5 Million Non-Secured, Forgivable Loan to Biden 'Family'.  A 2017 email from a top official with a Chinese energy firm, provided by a whistleblower to U.S. Senate investigators, demonstrates the terms of an agreement included officials with the firm giving a $5 million non-secured, forgivable loan to the Biden "family."  The email, sent to SinoHawk Holdings CEO Tony Bobulinski, shows how a top official with CEFC Energy — a now bankrupt and defunct energy company based in China — offered to wire $10 million into an account to begin operations, $5 million worth of which would be a non-secured forgivable loan to the "BD Family," which means the Biden family.

Biden's phony pointing act
NPR says it 'won't waste readers' time' on Biden emails 'non-story' — after happily parroting anti-Trump agitprop.  NPR has outright refused to cover the still-developing Hunter Biden emails scandal, calling the story "a distraction."  The publicly funded radio network was slammed for apparently protecting Joe Biden.  A tranche of emails released by the New York Post last week alleges that Hunter Biden — son of Democratic candidate Joe Biden — traded access to his father with Ukrainian energy tycoons, sought deals for his family in China, and kicked a share of his foreign profits up to Joe, all whilst Joe was vice president of the US.  The allegations fly in the face of Joe Biden's insistence that he knew nothing of his son's foreign dealings.

The Editor says...
Notice that Biden pulls the phony surprised-point-to-a-random-person act.  After being introduced, he walks out on stage and pretends to be surprised to recognize someone in the crowd, to whom he smiles and points.  He shares this technique with Bill and Hillary Clinton.  It's all phony.  It's just another layer of disingenuousness.

Joe Biden's Earliest Days in the Senate as Revealed in a 1974 Interview:  Crass and Venal, Using His Office for Monetary Gain.  The National Review has unearthed an interview of newly-elected Joe Biden by Kitty Kelly, published in Washingtonian Magazine on June 1, 1974.  Biden's comments on a variety of subjects during that interview — granted it was 1974 when he was only 31 — are not only cringe-worthy, in some cases they are contemptible.  One thing that cannot be missed — again a reflection of a bygone era — is the degree to which Biden focused on income, wealth, and status as things that he felt entitled to by virtue of his election to the Senate.  The simple reality is that Joe Biden had long been considered the clown of the Senate until Barack Obama selected him to be his Vice Presidential running mate in 2008.

The Editor says...
In 2008, the conventional wisdom said Joe Biden was selected as the VP candidate because he was the only politician Obama could overshadow.

Biden Associate Warned in a Text Message: 'Don't Mention Joe Biden Being Involved... Only When You Are Face to Face... They are Paranoid'.  A whistleblower CEO and Biden associate, Tony Bobulinski on Wednesday night released a devastating memo confirming Joe Biden was in on the Biden family's corruption while he was VP.  Tony Bobulinski is the CEO of Sinohawk Holdings which was a partnership between the Chinese operating through CEFC/Chairman Ye and the Biden family.  Bobulinski, who was named in one of the emails released by The New York Post said in his statement that the emails are authentic.

'Biden can fix this mess': Dozens of major news outlets have endorsed Joe Biden for president.  Media endorsements are pouring in for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, with the election less than two weeks away.  Some major publications, including USA Today and Scientific American, broke with decades-long traditions to give their nods to the former vice president.  The outlets join at least 40 newspapers across the nation that have backed Biden as of October 22.  The University of California Santa Barbara tracks major newspaper endorsements, which it defines as the largest 100 newspapers by circulation.  Biden is also receiving a growing number of magazine endorsements.

Biden Associate:  Yeah, I Gave Hunter Biden a $1 Million+ Job As a Favor to His Father.  You can see why Joe Biden doesn't want to talk about his son.  There's nothing good.  It's a sordid web of corruption and ethical icebergs that run counter to the squeaky clean, working-class hero narrative Joe has built for himself.  He is one of the least wealthy members of Congress, though there's no doubt his family name has earned a lot in payments and interest.  The former VP doesn't get rich, but his family does.  He offshores it, which was mentioned in Dinesh D'Souza's latest film, "Trump Card."  In doing so, Biden doesn't have to declare anything on financial disclosure forms, but rest assured, he'll be calling for his slice of the pie(s) that have been baking, thanks to his connections.  Now, in some instances, it seems Joe was in on the action from the get-go.  We know that when Hunter was proposing a massive deal with a Chinse energy firm, the equity breakdown had some person named the "big guy" listed.  That person is said to be Joe Biden.

Did Hunter Biden Leave His Laptop to Be Found?  Let me ask you a question.  In all seriousness, folks.  You're Hunter Biden.  You're the son of the vice president of the United States and a former United States senator.  And your father has put you in these various positions that result in you sending him money.  You, the son, Hunter Biden, have to send your dad money.  That's the purpose.  That's what your gig is.  And you know that it isn't right.  You know that you're not living your life.  You're not living your life.  You're living your dad's life.  You're doing what your dad needs you to do except that you're not 17 or 18 years old, you're a full-fledged adult.  So you got this laptop of yours, and it's got all this stuff on it.  And what do you do?  You take it to a repair shop? [...] The fact is, he did.  He took it to a repair shop, a computer repair shop in Delaware and then didn't pick it up.  He left it there for 45-days.  Why do that?  'Cause he wanted it to be seen.  He wanted it to be spotted.  He wanted what's happening now to happen.  I think he was under a lot of pressure.  I think he didn't want to be doing all of this.  There might have been some resentment.

Joe Biden tweets out that America is 'an idea' and 'we've never lived up to it'.  How's this for the most offensive political ad of the year? [...] Note that this isn't from his enemies, his party, his creepy allies, something that occurred years ago, or some kind of foreign disinfomation, this is straight from Joe, put out there on Twitter to entice Americans to give him their votes, in his big final push to squeeze the last of them. [...] No wonder Biden hides in his basement.  The more he speaks, the less there is to like.

Backpedaling:
Biden: There's 'a Number of Alternatives' to Court-Packing — SCOTUS Isn't a 'Political Football'.  Thursday, CBS News aired a preview of 2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's interview with the network's Norah O'Donnell set to air Sunday on "60 Minutes."  Biden told O'Donnell that if elected, he intends to put together a "bipartisan commission" to look into how to "reform the court system because it's getting out of whack."  This comes as President Donald Trump has nominated a Supreme Court justice in the final year of his first term, a move many Democrats have criticized and threatened to retaliate by packing the court.  "If elected, I'll put together a bipartisan commission of scholars, constitutional scholars, Democrats, Republicans, liberal, conservative, and I will ask them to over 180 days come back to me with recommendations as to how to reform the court system because it's getting out of whack the way in which it's being handled," Biden advised.

The Editor says...
Out of whack is a vague and malleable term that can mean anything at all — or nothing at all, if that becomes more advantageous later.

Did Joe Biden Take a Bribe?  The tech giants and legacy media have taken extreme and unprecedented measures to silence news accounts that probe this question.  Beyond Twitter and Facebook, there are reports of TikTok censoring contributors attempting to share the New York Post reporting on Hunter Biden.  Contrary to the ridiculous attempts to discredit the New York Post reporting, the sourcing in that story is actually far superior to the journalistic standards followed in published attacks on Trump, which often rely on verbal accounts by anonymous sources.  To bolster these attacks, other publications "corroborate" anonymous sources with still more anonymous sourcing — leading to the suspicion that it's all just the same anonymous sources spreading rumors.  In contrast, the New York Post has produced an email trail from a trove of documents obtained from a now on-the-record store owner who received the laptop directly from Hunter Biden.  Neither Joe nor Hunter has disputed the authenticity of any specific document.

Swampy Joe's Big Lies.  Joe Biden spent decades cultivating his image as a "middle class" legislator, free of the usual corrupting pressures a pol faces.  He wanted people to see him as simple, not swampy.  A big part of this con was his well-advertised commute from Delaware to Washington, D.C., on Amtrak.  He kept up this charade during his years as vice president, insisting that the Obama administration didn't give off even a whiff of scandal, a lie that he has continued to peddle as a presidential candidate.  The press, of course, lapped it all up. [...] The Hunter Biden scandal has exposed the media's malpractice in covering Biden.  The media left the public in the dark about the true character of the Biden family.  Far from simple and unacquainted with the swampiness of Washington, Biden sat at the center of a family of lobbyists.  While the press was swallowing his nonsense about the unimpeachable integrity of the Obama White House, Biden was letting his siblings and son profit off his government influence.

'10% Joe' — From Grandfather to Godfather.  We thought Joe Biden was the grandfather.  It turns out he's more like the godfather.  It's the big reveal in the Hunter Biden story. [...] What we learn from the laptop is that Joe (referred to as "the big guy") was to get a 10% cut of the loot from a deal with a now defunct Chinese energy company with strong ties to the Chinese government (the email outlines an equity split including "20 for H" and "10 held by H for the big guy."  That makes "10% Joe" analogous to the Godfather, the capo dei capi, the boss due his share of the family's enterprises.

"Smoking Gun" Email From Hunter Biden's Laptop Shows Burisma's Goal Was To Buy Influence Through Him and Devon Archer.  On December 6, 2015, Joe Biden ordered Ukraine President Petr Poroshenko to fire Ukraine Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin, threatening to withhold $1 billion in US aid to the Poroshenko government if he did not do so.  Newly revealed evidence taken from Hunter Biden's laptop, in the form of an email dated November 2, 2015, from Vadym Pozharskyi to Devon Archer and Hunter Biden at their Rosemont Seneca Partners email addresses shows, unequivocally, that Burisma's purpose in placing them both on the Board of Directors, and hiring Blue Star Strategies, a Washington DC PR firm, in November 2015, was to influence United States and Ukrainian government policies for the benefit of Burisma and its exiled owner, Nikolay Zlochevskyi.  It was Zlochevskyi, a Ukraine oligarch, who was paying Archer and Biden a reported $83,000 a month — each — to serve on the Bursima Board.

Biden Insider Claims He Was 'Recipient of the Email', Says He Witnessed Joe, Hunter Discussing Deals.  A whistleblower CEO and Biden insider, Tony Bobulinski, released a public statement on Wednesday evening [10/21/2020] backing up the reporting of the New York Post from last week and claiming that he personally witnessed Democrat presidential nominee former Vice President Joe Biden discussing business deals with his son, Hunter Biden.  Sources familiar with the matter told Breitbart News that Bobulinski is the person whose allegations and inside information are the centerpiece of a forthcoming investigation by the Wall Street Journal.

Laptop connected to Hunter Biden linked to FBI money laundering probe.  The FBI's subpoena of a laptop and hard drive purportedly belonging to Hunter Biden came in connection with a money laundering investigation in late 2019, according to documents obtained by Fox News and verified by multiple federal law enforcement officials who reviewed them.  It is unclear, at this point, whether the investigation is ongoing or if it was directly related to Hunter Biden.  Multiple federal law enforcement officials, as well as two separate government officials, confirmed the authenticity of these documents, which were signed by FBI Special Agent Joshua Wilson.  Wilson did not immediately respond to Fox News' request for comment.

Biden's Mental Acuity Is Not an Issue.  [Scroll down]  Likely voters already know that Joe Biden is nowhere near 100% mentally, but that is not the issue, and it never has been.  No committed Democrat will ever leave Biden-Harris, even if he were to say the worst imaginable profane thing or do something that leaves no doubt that he is completely detached from lucidity.  Voters are voting either for Trump or against him.  Trump Derangement Syndrome is the pivotal issue in the 2020 race, not Joe Biden's mental competence.  No one is paying attention to what Biden is actually saying. [...] When Biden says he'll rescind the Trump tax cuts, everyone already knows that.  When he mistakes Vermont for New Hampshire, no one pays attention.  When Biden goes on and on in some incoherent way about some gang leader named Corn Pop from a few decades ago, not one single voter is influenced either for or against either candidate.

New Biden Ad Causes Uproar; 'America Was An Idea, We Never Lived Up To It'.  Joe Biden released a questionable new ad saying that America "never lived up" to it's ideals, and he's getting absolutely hammered for it on Twitter.  "America was an idea.  We've never lived up to it but we've never walked away from it before," the caption said above Biden's new ad.  Apparently hundreds of years of brave military heroes fighting for our freedoms... the 9/11 first responders, ending slavery and defeating communism isn't "living up" to greatness, according to Joe Biden.

Giuliani: Hunter Biden's Hard Drive Contains Pics of Underage Girls, Text to Father That Says He's "Very Unsafe" for Kids.  Such were the contents of Hunter Biden's laptop hard drive that Trump adviser Rudy Giuliani didn't want the thing in his possession.  The hard drive contains photographs of underage girls, the former mayor of New York told NewsMax's Greg Kelly.  And in a text message from Hunter Biden to his father, Giuliani said, the younger Biden confessed that he was accused of being "sexually inappropriate" with a 14-year-old girl.  And so Giuliani turned the incriminating evidence over to authorites in Delaware, who immediately gave it to the FBI.  When news of the laptop appeared in the New York Post, the dirty pics were somewhat secondary to the main story:  An e-mail proved that Hunter Biden introduced his father to a top official from Burisma Holdings, the Ukrainian energy company at the center of the Biden-Burisma influence-peddling scandal.  But Giuliani's allegations suggest something far worse than routine political corruption.  If the text is authentic, the Democrat candidate for president knew his son was accused of sex crimes against underage girls.

Secret Service Travel Records Confirm Hunter Biden Trips Detailed In Emails.  Secret Service records revealed by two top Republican senators Tuesday confirm the details of Hunter Biden's trips described in a series of emails obtained and published by the New York Post last week.  Hunter Biden, Sens. Chuck Grassley of Iowa and Ron Johnson of Wisconsin explained, received Secret Service detail from January 2009 to early July 2014.  In one email reported by the Post, sent from Hunter Biden to his business partner Devon Archer dated Apr. 13, 2014, Hunter refers to a trip to Houston slated for "tmrw."  Secret Service records released by Johnson and Grassley corroborate details of the trip with a travel entry from Hunter Biden for Apr. 13, 2014 to Apr. 14, 2014 to Houston.  In another email published by the Post, senior Burisma adviser Vadim Pozharski allegedly wrote on May 12, 2014 of a trip to Como Lake.

Time for Joe Biden to stop dodging questions on Hunter.  Joe Biden has a chance at Thursday's debate to finally explain his relationship with son Hunter's cashing-in on the family name — rather than just dismissing what's plainly true or inventing some odd insult to whoever raises it.  It's blatantly obvious that Hunter merchandized his dad's high office for decades, cashing in particularly when Joe was vice president.  There's simply no other explanation for why people would time and again hire him for such vast sums for positions that he was manifestly unqualified for — except for his presumed access to his father.  Hunter himself admitted last year that he would "probably not" have been hired if he had a different last name.

Rudy Giuliani files police report on purported Hunter Biden laptop, alleging child endangerment.  Rudy Giuliani, one of President Trump's private attorneys, has reported to Delaware police concerns that materials on a laptop purportedly tied to Hunter Biden contained evidence of possible child endangerment.  Giuliani, a former U.S. attorney and New York City mayor, confirmed Tuesday night he went Monday to a local police department in Wilmington to report his concerns of children endangerment and sexual exploitation.  Giuliani told Just the News that former New York Police Department commissioner Bernard Kerik joined him when he delivered photographs and text messages to the New Castle County Police Department.  "I told them other details about what appears to be an inappropriate sexual relationship," he said in an interview.  "They told me it would be investigated."

The Media Skips Its Own Scoop.  as the media missed the biggest story of the century?  Not Hunter Biden's email scandal as reported, but the media's interpretation of that New York Post exposé. Pooh-poohed as "Russian disinformation," the Hunter Biden story would amount to the media's holiest of grails — ruthless proof of what they have long sought to uncover — President Trump is in bed with the Russians. [...] Consider the operation necessary for the media's take to be rooted in any semblance of truth.  A man named Hunter Biden drops off his laptop at a repair shop, leaving Hunter's contact details, and signing in Hunter's name.  Hunter Biden's lawyer then attempts to retrieve that laptop from the repair shop.  The Biden campaign then does not deny the veracity of the emails contained on that laptop.  Yet, according to the media, the above amounts to "Russian disinformation" — perhaps the most skilfully crafted of hoodwinks.  Would this not be the story of the century?

Five Quick Things:  Pointless Sympathy for the Devil.  [Scroll down]  Initially there was a denial that Hunter Biden took $3.5 million from the wife of the former mayor of Moscow.  Nobody is denying that anymore.  Not while they cringe in waiting for the evidence to come out as to what that $3.5 million paid for.  Then there's all the Chinese money.  Some being held for "the big guy."  There's the $8 million in Burisma money.  Plus something from Kazakhstan.  And Romania.  And there's the message from Hunter to his daughter Naomi, found on that laptop, griping that "Pop" has taken half his salary. [...] Joe Biden's net worth in 2016 was just under $400,000.  By 2019 it was over $16 million. [...] There are awfully few Americans who would flinch from such pain.  What we do flinch from is the obvious fact that, as Margot Cleveland noted at the Federalist, this level of bribery leads to extortion.  How does Joe Biden argue that he's his own man and not a wholly owned subsidiary of China and whatever other foreign potentates and villains who have filled his pockets with filthy lucre over the past few years?

Even As Media Work To Ignore It, Biden Scandal Just Keeps Growing.  We've written before about how social media and online publications hyped totally spurious claims of Russian collusion against President Donald Trump, while immediately tamping down factually based claims against fast-aging presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, who appear to have treated the vice presidency as a personal piggy bank. [...] Hunter Biden's "investment advisory" firm Rosemont Seneca took in an estimated $3.5 million from a Russian widow.  Not suspicious enough for you?  She is the wealthiest woman in Russia, a billionaire.  Her husband was former Moscow Mayor Yuri Luzhov, a close confederate of Vladimir Putin.  How about China, where, as we noted, the ever-eager Hunter Biden had Chinese entrepreneur Jonathan Li meet with his father in a Beijing hotel lobby.  Hunter later forged a partnership with Li to raise $1.5 billion for yet another "investment fund," this time with much of the money from China's communist government.

Joe Biden's Planned Economic Fiasco Should Cement a Donald Trump Victory.  During their convention the Democrats had a lengthy passage where they focused on the economy.  The messaging was all about the American worker and striving to bring jobs back.  This was a rather hollow message, however, as it was being delivered by the same party that was stridently keeping states locked down over pandemic concerns.  It is a tough sell to claim you are focused on the plight of American workers when Democratic Party governors were in the process of arresting people who tried to go back to work.  Joe's economic policy is no less contradictory.  On his campaign website, Biden has a long document of his economic plan that reads like it was torn from any union membership guidebook.

Giuliani: Computer shop owner who found alleged Hunter Biden emails told FBI he was 'really afraid'.  Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani has described how he obtained a copy of a hard drive that allegedly contained emails related to Hunter Biden's overseas business interests.  In an interview airing on Fox News' "Life, Liberty & Levin" Sunday evening, Giuliani — now President Trump's personal attorney — told host Mark Levin that the Delaware computer shop owner who allegedly took possession of Hunter Biden's laptop told an FBI agent he was "really afraid because the Bidens are very powerful around here."  "The gentleman who was repairing the hard drive — and Hunter Biden abandoned it," recounted Giuliani, apparently referring to John Paul Mac Isaac.  "He [Hunter Biden] may very well have forgotten where he left it for a while, because the gentlemen who got it said he [Hunter] was drunk for the entire time that he dealt with him, and he dealt with him twice."

Here Are Hunter Biden's Alleged Text Messages Giuliani Just Turned Over to the Delaware State Police.  Rudy Giuliani handed over "very, very sensitive" text messages to the Delaware State Police that are allegedly from Hunter Biden to his father, former Vice President Joe Biden.  In the text messages, Hunter allegedly accused his sister-in-law and former lover, Hallie Biden, of telling Hunter's therapist that he was sleeping with a 14-year-old girl. [...] According to Giuliani, there are "numerous pictures of underage girls" that accompany the text messages.  He was "very uncomfortable" with the texts and pictures, which is why he turned them over to the Delaware State Police on Monday, the lawyer explained during a segment on Newsmax.

The Media's Futile Information Suppression Complex.  If you needed evidence that "Russian disinformation" has become a catchall term for anything that undermines the Democratic Party's electoral prospects, look no further than the response of top party apparatchiks and the mainstream media to last week's New York Post exposé on Hunter Biden.  According to Sen. Chris Murphy (D., Conn.), the story is "very likely Russian propaganda."  House Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff (D., Calif.) is certain the materials came "from the Kremlin."  And CNN's John Harwood tells us the story is "clear disinformation by Russian intelligence." [...] The Biden campaign has offered no suggestion that the emails are phony.  Instead, Biden has offered the magical one-word response that his former boss, aided and abetted by the press, used so effectively in 2008:  Smear!  It says something about the state of the mainstream media that their response has been functionally indistinguishable from that of the Democratic Party's leadership, elected and otherwise.

President Trump Supports an Independent Special Counsel to Investigate Foreign Payments to Biden Family.  Earlier this morning [10/20/2020] President Trump called-in to Fox News for an interview on several topics.  During a part of the interview President Trump draws a comparison between confirmed evidence of Hunter Biden selling influence with false accusations of Donald Trump Jr. selling influence.  President Trump discusses the upcoming debate and outlines his support for an independent special counsel to investigate how payments to Hunter by several foreign governments were constructed as a back-door process to purchase action from Joe Biden.

This Is How the Left's Power Structure Collapses.  Corruption.  There it is.  That's the issue.  To begin, you have the corrupt family Biden.  They've been scamming us and our system well for almost fifty years.  The man is supposedly worth over 250 million dollars.  How is this possible on his salary?  It's not.  So where did his wealth come from?  Not from being a brilliant businessman.  Enter Hunter's laptop.  We now know that this is a family steeped in crime and corruption.  Ole Corn Pop appears to be awash in money kicked back to him by his family members who have grifted off his reputation for years.  Hunter's laptop has betrayed all this and more.  Much like Al Capone's bookkeeper.

Joe Biden Cannot Be President — Time For The Democrats To Put "Country Before Party".  No rational person can any longer have any question about the corruption of Hunter Biden and his father Joe.  Even the most skeptical must admit in light of the recent revelations produced by the New York Post and Breitbart that President Trump's use of the term "Biden Crime Family" is completely appropriate.  Hunter was the bag man for a family enterprise.  He traveled the globe collecting the payoffs necessary to secure meetings with his father and his father's intervention on behalf of the world's thugs, dictators, and communist regimes.  And, yet, incredibly these are no longer our biggest concerns.  We are not simply faced with the possibility of a crook being elected to the highest office in the land.  We are facing the very real possibility of having a man, Joe Biden, who is owned by the Chinese Communist Party sit down in the Oval Office.  The amounts of money that are involved are staggering.  In one meeting with Communist Chinese officials, Hunter Biden secured $1 Billion.  That sum was later upped to $1.5 Billion.  No one — at this stage — can even begin to assess the total amount of money provided by Beijing to the Bidens.  No one at this stage can even begin to quantify the number of "deals" Hunter made with the Communist rulers of China.

FBI in possession of Hunter Biden's purported laptop, sources say.  The FBI is in possession of the laptop purportedly belonging to Hunter Biden which contained emails revealing his foreign business dealings, including contacts in Ukraine and China, two senior administration officials told Fox News Tuesday [10/20/2020].  The FBI declined to confirm or deny the existence of an investigation into the laptop or the emails, as is standard practice.  Further, Fox News has learned that the FBI and Justice Department officials concur with an assessment from Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe that the laptop is not part of a Russian disinformation campaign targeting Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.

Media, Big Tech let Bidens sin and grin while vilifying The Post.  Sportswriter John Feinstein, after legendary basketball coach Bobby Knight alternately called him a pimp and a whore, had a memorable response:  "I wish he'd make up his mind so I'd know how to dress!"  Something similar is going on with The [New York] Post's breakthrough reports of the Biden family business secrets.  The media Praetorian Guards are throwing up defenses faster than Bobby Knight hurled insults.  One day, The Post is accused of spreading Russian disinformation for reporting on e-mails contained on a laptop belonging to Hunter Biden.  The next day, the paper is accused of being cruel because Hunter has obvious dependency and psychological issues.  What's next — that poor Joe Biden was duped into getting involved in Hunter's deals because of early-stage dementia?  Oops, can't go there, at least not yet.  That has to wait until he's sitting in the White House and Donald Trump is banished.  Then it will be safe to let the facts come out.

So much for Russian disinformation:  Hunter Biden's signed receipts turn up.  As Andrea Widburg noted in her excellent post here, the left has pulled out all stops to create a miasma of confusing information about the frighteningly sharp and clear Hunter Biden emails found on an abandoned MacBook Pro computer, of a crack addict selling access to his father's office for millions in public gain.  The computer itself is evidence, corroborated by additional emails from Biden's associates, in jail or heading there, while the rapacious Hunter skates.  There's additional information the Senate investigative report.  Rep. Adam Schiff, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, though, same as he did during impeachment, claims it's Russian disinformation, assuming he can go to that well more than once.  His New York Times media toadies are following.  Other members of the leftist press are, with JournoList-style echo-chamber talking points, calling it a "garbage fire."

Hunter Biden has not denied he gave his laptop to a Delaware repair shop.  Hunter Biden has not confirmed nor denied that he dropped off a laptop at a Delaware computer repair shop that has been described as the source for emails detailing his business dealings in Ukraine and China.  He has also not addressed the authenticity of a quote the New York Post produced on Wednesday from the repair show that contains what appears to be his signature, along with his phone number and email address, agreeing to allow the shop to attempt to move data from three Macbook Pros to a store server.  If Hunter Biden was not the individual who dropped off the laptop at the repair shop in April 2019 or the signed quote produced by the Post is a forgery, it would cast doubt on the legitimacy of the emails that were pulled from the computer or point to the possibility that the emails were obtained from a hack or other illegal means.

Hunter Biden Was Trying to Tell Us Something.  [Scroll down]  Hunter was to be Joe's bag man.  He probably was more often than we know, jetting around with his father on Air Force Two.  The numbers from all these deals — Moscow, China, Kazakhstan, etc. — are staggering.  More are coming soon.  Just today we learn of Hunter's (and no doubt Joe's by extension) activities in Romania.  Bag man, indeed, but evidently it was not easy being Joe Biden's son.  This accusation of Mafia-like behavior must have been difficult, actually extraordinarily difficult, for Hunter to make, even to himself, (cf.  Shakespeare and Sophocles), so, in what one can assume was a highly-altered state, in an act of what we might call "justifiable patricide," he dropped off the laptop and walked away from the store, leaving behind this mountain of evidence, pretending in some ways it had never happened, possibly forgetting — or blocking — he was ever there.  (Who knows?)

Biden Defector's Emails Reveal Hunter's Associates Viewed Direct 'Pipeline' to Administration as 'Currency'.  Hunter Biden's business associates spoke candidly in emails about Hunter Biden's role in the business, particularly as it related to foreign ventures, apparently viewing the Biden name as a form of "currency," and bragging that they had a "direct... pipeline" to the Obama-Biden Administration.  In another email, Hunter Biden's associates touted Hunter's access to the White House and contrasted his willingness to "take on risk" with that of Chris Heinz — then-Secretary of State John Kerry's stepson and a close friend of Biden and Archer — who was uncomfortable with some of their potential partnerships.

Byte of the Hunter.  Joe Biden's son Hunter is in the news, assuming you consider "the news" to be the New York Post, Fox News, and pretty much no one else.  After allegedly deserting his laptop computer at a repair shop, Hunter's hard drive was reviewed by the store owner and discovered to contain thousands of personal photos, including of sex and drug use, and scads of emails which clearly indicate that Joe Biden was selling his influence as Vice President to any foreign country that would line Hunter's pockets (including China and Ukraine).  Not that ol' Joe was altruistic about it; according to the emails, he personally demanded 50% of the bribe money that he had his son skimming from foreign governments.  In other words, it seems that there's solid proof that Joe Biden is as sleazy and corrupt as they come, and [he] should be in jail.

Why did they nominate Hunter Biden's pop?  Surely Democrats knew that President Donald John Trump was not playing around.  And now he has delivered the Mother of All October Surprises.  His opponent's 50-year-old son collected bribes for his father, snorted cocaine, and abused underage girls provided by Red China.  Democrats have known about this since last fall because a computer repairman handed the FBI a laptop filled with incriminating evidence.  Whatever the FBI knows, the Democrat Party knows because the FBI works for the Democrat Party.  Americans just pay for it.  Despite all this, Democrats nominated Biden.  No, it is worse than that.  Democrats scraped him off the shoes of Buttigieg and Bernie — who walked all over him in Iowa and New Hampshire — and resurrected him as the great white hope for black voters in South Carolina.  The party greased palms to get everyone else to drop out, and Biden was their man.  His nomination makes no sense.

Cover-Up! ABC/CBS/NBC Bury Hunter Biden Scandals.  The Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) networks are doing everything they can to avoid investigating the latest Hunter Biden bombshells.  Since the morning of October 14 when the New York Post published new evidence of Hunter Biden's corrupt business dealings with Ukraine and Joe Biden's potential knowledge of it the broadcast nets have buried the allegations.  For Wednesday, October 14 through the morning of October 19 MRC analysts looked at the ABC, CBS, NBC evening and morning shows and their Sunday roundtable programs, plus ABC's and NBC's townhall events with Joe Biden and President Trump.  Out of a total of 51 hours of news programming, there was less than 15 minutes (14 minutes, 15 seconds) spent on the latest scandals involving Joe Biden's son.  ABC spent ZERO seconds on Hunter Biden.  NBC spent just 5 minutes, 2 seconds on Hunter's emails.  CBS led the broadcast networks with nine minutes and 13 seconds.

Yes, The Hunter Biden Emails Are Authentic.  [Scroll down]  In the ensuing months, starting with the impeachment trial of President Trump, he heard nothing from the FBI and knew that none of the evidence from the hard drive had been shared with President Trump's defense team.  The lack of action and communication with the FBI led John Paul to make the fateful decision to contact Rudy Giuliani's office and offer a copy of the drive to the former mayor.  We now know that Rudy accepted John Paul's offer and that Rudy's team shared the information with the New York Post.  John Paul Mac Issac is not responsible for the emails, images and videos recovered from Hunter Biden's computer.  He was hired to do a job, he did the job and submitted an invoice for the work.  Hunter Biden, for some unexplained reason, never responded and never asked for the computer.  But that changed last Tuesday, October 13, 2020.  A person claiming to be Hunter Biden's lawyer called John Paul Mac Isaac and asked for the computer to be returned.  Too late.  That horse had left the barn and was with the FBI.

Big Tech Burned by Biden Blunder.  [Scroll down]  The emails, some of which have been confirmed as genuine with their recipients, show substantial evidence that Hunter Biden used his position as Vice President Joe Biden's son to extract substantial payments from "clients" in other countries.  There are also photos of Hunter with a crack pipe, and engaging in various other unsavory activities.  And they demolished the elder Biden's claim that he never discussed business with his son.  That's a big election-year news story.  Some people doubted its genuineness, and of course it's always fair to question a big election-year news story, especially one that comes out shortly before the election. [...] But the way you debate whether a story is accurate or not is by debating. (In the case of the Rather memos, it turned out the font was from Microsoft Word, which of course didn't exist back during the Vietnam War era.) Big Tech could have tried an approach that fostered such a debate.  But instead of debate, they went for a blackout:  Both services actually blocked links to the New York Post story.

If Joe Biden lies and the media ignore it, does he make a sound?  Shawn Steffee was at a political function in Indiana County, Pennsylvania, last Thursday evening when he started receiving an overwhelming number of calls and text messages.  "My phone started going off like a slot machine.  Initially, I had no idea what was going on," he said from his home in Homer City.  Steffee, a Boilermakers Local 154 business agent and executive board member, soon found the flood of texts and calls were because Joe Biden lied about Steffee and his union supporting him during the ABC News town hall event last week. [...] "The boilermakers overwhelmingly endorse me, OK?" Biden snapped on Thursday, adding, "So, the Boilermakers Union has endorsed me because I sat down with them, went into great detail with leadership, exactly what I would do, No. 1."  Except they didn't.  In truth, the Local 154 endorsed President Trump in a September message from business leader John Hughes.  They appeared with him onstage at a massive rally shortly after.

The media 'cover' Joe Biden the way a protection racket does.  Joe Biden is the most cosseted presidential candidate in memory.  He has run a minimalist campaign that has avoided the press as much as possible, while the press hasn't been braying for more access and answers, but eager to avoid anything that could be discomfiting to the campaign.  Never before have the media been so openly fearful of asking or reporting something that might hurt a presidential candidate.  What are supposed to be the animating values of our adversarial press — informing the public, getting answers, holding the powerful to account — have all been subordinated to the protection racket that is coverage of Joe Biden.

Repair Shop Receipt for Hunter Biden Laptop Revealed, Media Narrative Burns to the Ground.  Welp, so much for all those wild, Russian conspiracy theories.  Hunter Biden's laptop was indeed dropped off at a Delaware repair shop by none other than Hunter Biden himself.  A receipt bearing his signature and name for the repair has been revealed and it's a total backbreaker for the media's narrative.

DNI John Ratcliffe:  Hunter Biden Laptop/Pictures/Emails "Not Part of Russian Disinformation Campaign".  Director of National Intelligence (DNI) John Ratcliffe appears on Fox Business News in an attempt to stop the false narrative that information coming from the laptop of Hunter Biden is a 'Russian disinformation campaign.'  Ratcliffe explains the FBI is not approaching the evidence from a position of Russian involvement, and all the material discussed in the media so far has nothing to do with any Russian effort.  The disinformation campaign is from Democrats and the media.  Additionally, as it relates to the Biden material, DNI Ratcliffe states:  "we haven't shared any intelligence with Representative Adam Schiff or any member of Congress."

Johnson to Wray:  Tell us everything about Hunter Biden's alleged laptop.  Ron Johnson asks a good question, even if he may not like the eventual answer.  Why didn't the FBI make the information on Hunter Biden's alleged laptop available to the House and Senate during the impeachment of Donald Trump?  According to the New York Post, the hard drive contained information relating to the issue of potential corruption between the Bidens and Ukraine, the probe of which touched off impeachment in the first place.  There are two possibilities, both of which the chair of the Senate Homeland Security Committee shares with Fox's Maria Bartiromo:  [Video clip]

MIT Tech Review:  Tech Censorship Nearly Doubled Attention for NY Post Biden Bombshell.  The attempt by the social media Masters of the Universe to stop the spread of the New York Post bombshell article about Joe Biden and his son Hunter's alleged dealings with Burisma, has nearly doubled the level of attention the story gained.  What is known as the "Streisand Effect" — a social phenomenon that occurs when an attempt to censor information has the unintended consequence of further publicizing it instead — went into overdrive after social media platforms including Facebook and Twitter attempted to suppress a NY Post article about Hunter Biden, according to data published in the MIT Technology Review.

House Republicans Formally Request AG Barr Appoint Special Prosecutor To Probe Biden Business Dealings.  On Monday [10/19/2020], House Republicans formally requested that Attorney General William Barr appoint a special prosecutor to investigate allegations arising from a New York Post story about Hunter Biden's business dealings.  In a letter released Monday morning, eleven Members of Congress urged Barr to initiate an investigation into whether the younger Biden used his father, Joe Biden's, position as Vice President to gain the upper hand in international business deals.  The Post story, as The Daily Wire reported last week, claims that emails, found on a computer allegedly belonging to Hunter Biden, substantiate such allegations.  The story remains controversial, with Democrats and other left-leaning activists suggesting, over the weekend, that the laptop — and subsequent stories about its contents — were planted by Russians, intent on upending the 2020 presidential campaign through the spread of misinformation.

Joe Biden [Would] Be The Worst President In U.S. History.  Ranking modern presidents, from first to worst, is an entirely subjective matter.  That said, we're quite sure Joe Biden will be, if elected, the most destructive president of our lifetimes if not of all time.  At I&I we tend to look at Jimmy Carter and Barack Obama as being the worst presidents from our lifetimes.  Carter saw himself as the caretaker of the country's inevitable decline rather someone who would lift it from its malaise.  Obama managed the worst economic recovery in our post-war history, allowed ISIS to grow into a terrorist power, and rolled over for Iran's mullahs.  His was the most divisive presidency of modern times.  If this nation is on the brink of another civil war, as some suggest we are, it's because he set the tone for the bitter separation we see today among Americans.  At least Carter led the deregulation of the airline, trucking and rail industries, and in his 1978 State of the Union address acknowledged "we really need to realize that there is a limit to the role and the function of government."  Biden would neither do nor say any such thing.

Biden's tax plan will lead to a combined rate of as high as 62% for those making more than $400k in some states.  The highest earners in the states of New York, New Jersey and California could end up facing a combined state and federal tax rate of 62% under Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's tax plan, in what would be the highest tax rate implemented in more than 30 years.  The high rate would affect those earning more than $400,000 while those earning below that level would likely receive tax cuts, according to the Tax Foundation, a low-tax advocacy group.  Earners above $400,000 represent at most 1.8% of the population — and Biden has made making them pay more part of his campaign.

Peter Schweizer:  Hunter Biden's Flipped Business Partner Provided 26,000 Emails.  The business partner of Hunter Biden who flipped on the Biden family from prison provided access to 26,000 emails, Breitbart News senior contributor Peter Schweizer said in a Saturday morning [10/17/2020] radio appearance.  Schweizer [...] said that former Hunter Biden business partner Bevan Cooney provided 26,000 emails to him — the first of which were published late last week in a Breitbart News exclusive investigation by Schweizer and author Seamus Bruner.  Cooney is currently serving a sentence in federal prison due to his conviction over financial deals he made connected to Hunter Biden and his other partner Devon Archer.  Archer, who was also convicted by a jury in federal court, saw his conviction vacated by a federal judge.  That conviction was later — just a couple weeks ago — reinstated by an appellate court, which overruled the lower court judge's decision to vacate it.  Archer awaits sentencing.

Here's Why the Mayor of Moscow's Wife Paid Hunter Biden $3.5 Million, and Likely More!  According to US treasury documents provided by the Senate Finance and Homeland Security Committees, Hunter Biden was paid $3.5 million from the Mayor of Moscow's wife.  The report by the Senate Finance and Homeland Security Committees was released last month and it was devastating.  Hunter Biden received a $3.5 million wire transfer from Yelena Baturina, the wife of the former mayor of Moscow.  Until today we didn't know why Yelena Baturina paid Hunter millions of dollars. [...] According to emails and documents, Yelena Baturina laundered funds into the US in avoidance of sanctions, Devon Archer claimed the firm received $200 million.

Joe Biden and the Media Are Running Scared.  The media and Joe Biden are running scared.  You see it in every machination they make in response to the bombshell Hunter Biden email story.  As I wrote over the weekend, you can tell the emails are authentic simply by the fact that the Biden campaign has carefully danced around, putting out non-denial denials which carefully rely on evidence-free media opinions to refute the story. [...] These are not the actions of a man who is confident in his ability to rebut this email story.  They are the actions of a man who is terrified of what he's been caught up in and who wants to run the clock out.  Biden knows that the debate moderator on Thursday [10/22/2020] will not dare to bring this up, nor will she allow Trump to start a conversation about it.  Just as Chris Wallace did, it'll be all "we are moving on" the moment the President mentions the story which is legitimately the biggest in the current political scene.  Rather, we'll get more arguing about masks and climate change, because the media are fully complicit in the cover-up of what Joe and Hunter Biden did.

The Stench Of Corruption Is Overwhelming.  In short, Biden's response to any and all questions concerning Hunter's role with Burisma has been to dismiss such allegations as debunked conspiracy theories pushed by his political opponent.  No one did anything wrong.  There is nothing to explain, and he is not about to try.  Inconveniently, for Joe, though, the story will not go away.  Just today [10/14/2020] the New York Post broke the news that they were in possession of an email from a senior official from Burisma to Hunter Biden which makes a specific reference to Hunter's role in setting up a meeting between the official and then Vice-President Joe Biden.

'The Joe meeting happened, the emails are correct and Joe took 10% of equity': Bannon says everything reported in Hunter laptop scandal is true.  Steve Bannon said Sunday everything that has come to light from Hunter Biden's hard drive is true as he paints Joe Biden as a 'stone cold liar' after revelations show deep financial ties between the Biden's and Chinese Communist Party.  'Joe Biden has lied about this for years,' Bannon told Sky News in an interview Sunday [10/18/2020].  'What Fox did, which was very interesting on that issue but also on the Chinese — they actually went to the people on the emails and contacted them.  What was so stunning is that they reported last night that one, the guys on the emails said absolutely the meetings happened.  This is not off of some Russia intelligence operation.  That emails correct, the meanings correct and, by the way, that 10 percent of the equity is Joe Biden's,' Bannon said.

The Biden Corruption Scandal Isn't About Hunter, It's About Joe.  Hunter Biden's addiction is not the issue.  Joe Biden's addiction is:  His addiction to power and money.  And it is the evidence of the former vice president's corruption, and the national security risk our country would face by electing Biden, that is the story of the MacBook hard drive, not the salacious, verified photographs and videos of Hunter Biden.  For nearly a week, corporate media successfully ignored or downplayed news of the trove of Hunter Biden's emails, texts, photographs, and videos recovered from a laptop abandoned at a Delaware computer repair store.  Then confirmation of the authenticity of the materials first reported in the New York Post, and the release of a second set of emails — also confirmed — from another source finally forced the press to acknowledge the issue.

Biden now has serious questions to answer about Hunter's dodgy deals and he can't duck them forever.  Four days ago, the New York Post published a bombshell report raising serious new questions about presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son Hunter's relationship with Ukranian energy company Burisma. [...] I have no idea if the report is entirely true, partly true, or completely untrue.  But with my old newspaper editor hat on, I do know that the response from Joe Biden so far has done nothing to make me think it's false.  Crucially, there has been no denial of the fact that these emails are genuine.  And if they are, then they raise important questions.  The potentially most explosive part of the story is a 2015 email supposedly sent by a top Burisma adviser, Vadym Pozharskyi, thanking Hunter for giving him the chance to meet his dad Joe while he was Vice-President.

Should Hunter Biden Be in Jail?  Another Look at the Oglala Sioux Indian Tribe Securities Fraud Case.  There's a mystery about to unfold about Hunter Biden's connection to an Indian bond fraud scheme that happened from 2014-15, for which some business associates of Hunter Biden have gone to federal prison.  Bottom line:  Hunter Biden followed his partner, Devon Archer, into bed with some unabashed Wall Street fraud merchants.  No ifs, ands, or buts — Hunter Biden laid down with dogs and now he's got fleas. [...] After the release last week of emails from Hunter Biden's laptop exposing some of the business schemes he's been involved in, a person convicted in the Indian Tribe bond fraud, Bevan Cooney, has now made available approximately 26,000 emails in his Gmail account, suggesting there are documents there that implicate Hunter Biden in the Indian bond fraud scheme — and probably a lot more.  Cooney has released the emails because he claims that Hunter Biden improperly escaped accountability and responsibility for his role in the fraud for which seven other people have gone to prison.

Joe Biden is not geared for battle, he shrinks from it.  [Scroll down]  if Biden is not a fighter, what qualities does he possess, not otherwise apparent upon the surface of a very bland exterior?  He doesn't appear to have gotten things done behind the scenes, as his legislative record is almost as nonexistent as his role in the recent confirmation hearings.  He did not lead the charge as Hubert Humphrey, a grand old warrior.  He did not work the hallways as Lyndon Johnson, whose legislative career and record were almost legendary[.]  Humphrey, Johnson, even John Kennedey [sic], all of them in the heat of battle, at their best.  Joe Biden is none of them, not even a shadow of any of those men.  The only thing I can conclude about Biden is that he must have a lot of dirt on a lot of people to have gotten to this point, a political ferret who worked the shadows and the gutters, amassing this little bit of knowledge as a wedge or lever to use against opponents. [...] Caught red handed with his hands in the pockets of the Chinese and the Ukrainians, he can only weakly deny the obvious, and count on his rich benefactors to use their considerable power to censor and suppress the news of his venality.

The virus is all they've got and they're clinging to it.  [Scroll down]  The Democrat party most likely did not plan for Joe Biden to be their candidate.  In Congress for forty-seven years, the man had never accomplished anything but a bad reputation; for corruption, for his racist views — he opposed integration, did not want his kids to go to school in a "racial jungle."  He was best pals with Robert Byrd, a former Exalted Cyclops of the KKK.  He reveled in humiliating Clarence Thomas throughout his SCOTUS confirmation hearings.  He has lied too many times to count, about his own achievements, background, academic record, incidents and experiences as a senator and V.P., etc.  He's been accused of sexual assault and he's handsy with even young girls.  How on earth did his party put him up as a presidential candidate at this moment in time?  He is the exemplar of everything we do not want or need as a leader, let alone as president. [...] Joe Biden is neither smart nor wise.  He lacks character and is profoundly corrupt.  He has never accomplished anything of import in forty-seven years but to enrich himself and his family, nuclear and extended.  The Biden family is a crime syndicate.  It has sold out the U.S. for big money.

Emails Reveal Hunter Biden's Associates Helped Communist-Aligned Chinese Elites Secure White House Meetings.  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.

With All Due Respect, It's NOT Settled and We DO Deserve to Know.  When President Donald Trump brought up Hunter Biden's activity in the first presidential debate the former Vice President attempted to pass it off as rumor.  Rumor that has supposedly been debunked.  He waved his hand in the air and attempted to over talk the president.  He claimed and implied that multiple journalists had investigated the claims and found them to be something akin to gossip. [...] And all of that was before the public discovery of Hunter Biden's abandoned laptop.  It has been five days since some of the laptop's contents have been revealed and to date neither the candidate nor the campaign have denied the stack of evidence that is growing by the day that then-Vice President Joe Biden was not only aware of his son's activities but deeply involved in them.  Up to $10 million dollars worth of involvement on just one deal with the Chinese Communist Party alone.

Hunter Biden's Computer Camera Roll Turned Over to Bannon and Giuliani Contains 25,000 Images With Sexually Explicit Selfies and Porn.  Earlier this week The New York Post released shocking emails that prove Hunter Biden introduced his father, then-Vice President Joe Biden, to a top executive at the Burisma Ukrainian energy firm.  This was a year before the elder Biden pressured government officials in Ukraine into firing a prosecutor who was investigating the company.  Hunter Biden left his laptop at a computer shop and then neglected to pick it up after several calls.  The owner of the computer repair company handed over Hunter's laptop to the FBI last December.  The FBI hid this evidence from congress and the executive branch during the Pelosi impeachment hearings. [...] On Saturday Steve Bannon sat for an interview with Revolver News.  Bannon warned the Biden Crime Family that there is much more to come — from several outlets — in the coming days.

Media avoiding The Post's Hunter Biden stories as much as Joe.  On April 12, 2019, a man who calls himself Hunter Biden enters a Wilmington, Del., Mac repair shop with three "liquid-damaged" computers just before closing time. [...] The third laptop, a MacBook, is salvageable.  Hunter signs a work order to confirm he wants him to fix it and provides contact details.  The owner — whom The [New York] Post promised anonymity, even though he has since been named by others — recovers the content of the laptop and transfers it to his server.  He calls Hunter and asks him to bring in an external drive, onto which he can transfer the content.  Hunter arrives at closing time with the external drive.  He never sets foot inside the store again.  The owner makes frequent attempts to contact Hunter to pick up his laptop, pay the $85 bill and return the keyboard and cord.  No reply.  After 90 days, as per the work order signed by Hunter, the laptop becomes the store's legal property.

'Unverified' is a (false) excuse for ignoring The Post's Hunter Biden scoops.  Much of the push to ignore The [New York] Post's drop of Hunter Biden's e-mails centers on the charge that it's all "unverified."  The claim is more excuse than truth.  First, a host of media outlets have now interviewed the computer-repair guy who provided the data at the heart of these exposés — and he's said exactly what we've reported from the start about how the laptop came into his possession.  Second, neither Hunter nor Joe Biden has even questioned the fact that the drive is real — they merely dismiss the entire line of questioning, while charging that The Post has an agenda in presenting it to the world.  Third, we've published emails and pictures — most of which have nothing to do with Ukraine or China — that contain an extraordinary level of detail.  Is that all fabricated?

Hold on to your hat:  Hunter's hard drive rollout this week is going to unleash a whirlwind.  Joe Biden has gone into hiding for the next four days ("to prepare for the debate") as the social media censorship of information on Hunter Biden's hard drive fails to force it down the memory hole.  So massive is the cache of information on corruption that daily updates in digestible bites that build toward public rejection of putting Joe Biden in the Oval Office is the strategy that makes most sense.  We can safely speculate that that's exactly how it will play out now that we know that Steve Bannon was given a copy of the hard drive and is orchestrating the roll-out in collaboration with Rudy Giuliani. [...] Rudy Giuliani, for his part, did a complete hour-long interview with Mark Levin yesterday, whose first airing was regrettably mostly missed due to live coverage of President Trump's Carson City rally.  The program was rebroadcast, and the entire show, minus commercials, is embedded below.  [Video clip]

Things may soon get a lot worse for Hunter and Joe Biden.  Hunter Biden is a truly pathetic human being.  He's an addict who's rolled in and out of rehab because of his serious drug and alcohol abuse.  The recently released emails reveal a man with horrifically low self-esteem.  They also indicate that his father pimped Hunter to foreign governments to act as a bagman for bribes.  However, it's possible to be both pathetic and evil.  In this case, the evil may exist, not just because Hunter sold out his country, but also because there are increasingly credible rumors that Hunter's hard drive holds child pornography.  The first reference to child pornography on Hunter's hard drive came from Chanel Rion of OAN.  A day after the New York Post story broke, she tweeted that, having seen some of the contents on Hunter's hard drive, there were disturbing indications that he is obsessed with underage girls.

Here's How You Know the Hunter Biden Emails Are Real.  The scandal surrounding Hunter Biden's emails has only grown in proportion over the last three days, yet you wouldn't know that from the near blackout media coverage they are receiving.  Apparently, pay to play schemes and influence peddling are only a bad thing when the accusations are being leveled at the Trump family.  Of course, the latter never actually did any of that while we have direct, documentary evidence that the Bidens are as corrupt as they come.  The latest revelation on that front even showed that Joe Biden was possibly getting a percentage of Hunter Biden's ill-gotten proceeds from places like Ukraine and China.  Meanwhile, the then vice president was glad handing with associates from Burisma.  Later he would claim to have no knowledge at all about any of his son's dealings.  In short, the entire thing stinks to high heaven.  That means the response has to been to try to proclaim the story is "Russian misinformation."  But there's a very big tell coming from the Biden campaign that shows the emails are absolutely real, and they know it.

Evidence In the Biden Scandal Keeps Adding up, While Biden and His People Evade Questions.  Democrats and many of their willing acolytes in media have been doing everything they can to spin the influence peddling scandal surrounding Joe Biden and his son Hunter.  After the NY Post's story of Hunter's laptop dropped, the left tried to claim that it was somehow "Russian disinformation."  This of course made no sense as there was nothing to link Russia to any part of the story about the laptop.  But it was all the more ironic given that in face in the 2016 election it was Democrats, the DNC, and the Clinton team who paid for what was likely Russian disinformation to undermine a political opponent.  As my colleague Bonchie and I have both noted, there were already a lot of indications that the laptop and the emails were real, from verified email addresses, pictures and videos of Hunter Biden, even people on an email thread verifying the email.  But now, Rudy Giuliani has made their spin just a little bit harder.

Going Sour on Joe Biden.  [Scroll down]  Then Hunter stupidly failed to reclaim his damaged MacBook Pro from a repair shop.  As abandoned property, its hard drive was sent to the FBI (in December 2019, and the FBI did nothing). Then in May or June of this year, a copy made its way into the hands of the Trump campaign, information from which they have released this week as their own "October Surprise."  So far, the info on the drive has revealed that Hunter was selling his dad's connections and influence for hard cash (in both Ukraine and China), that Hunter was paying for many expenses of the Biden extended family, and that Joe was receiving "kickbacks" of up to 50% of the bribes that Hunter took in.  Rudy Giuliani has clearly laid out this trail of corruption in a podcast, available in this YouTube video here.  You may disagree with Rudy's description of the "Biden crime family," but Rudy is an experienced prosecutor of mafiosi and I agree with this characterization.  The truth is on the immutable hard drive.  The corruption is extensive, to many members of the Biden extended family, and no doubt we'll learn more as the Trump folks reveal it in the days before the election.

Joe Biden Puts His Hand Up, Walks Away and Refuses to Answer Question About FBI Seizing His Son Hunter's Laptop.  Joe Biden and his granddaughter Finnegan got milkshakes at Cookout in Durham, North Carolina on Sunday after Biden's low energy drive-in rally.  One so-called reporter asked Biden about the flavor of his milkshake while he was walking out of Cookout in Durham.  Biden had no problem answering that sycophantic reporter and told him he got "one vanilla and one chocolate."  Another reporter asked Biden about the FBI seizing his son Hunter's laptop and Biden put up his hand up, walked away and refused to answer her!

'You just made the connection': Top senator asked if FBI investigated child pornography on Hunter Biden's laptop.  A top Republican senator acknowledged the possibility that the FBI investigated whether there was child pornography on a laptop and hard drive that allegedly belonged to Hunter Biden.  Journalist Maria Bartiromo asked Sen. Ron Johnson, the chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, about a Business Insider report that described faint handwriting on a subpoena served last year to a Delaware business that was given a water-damaged MacBook Pro to repair but was never retrieved and a hard drive with its contents.  The hardware purportedly contained data about foreign business dealings and other matters related to the son of former Vice President Joe Biden.  The subpoena appeared to show the FBI agent who served it was someone named "Joshua Wilson." [...] "I think you just made the connection.  Again, this is what the FBI, I think, has to come clean about," the Wisconsin Republican said in his first reply.  Johnson was alluding to his letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray about the laptop sent last week.

How Long Has The U.S. Intelligence Apparatus Been Selecting Presidential Candidates?  One would have to be intellectually obtuse to think former President Barack Obama was unaware his Vice-President, Joe Biden, was raking in tens-of-millions from his use of Hunter Biden as family bagman while lobbying foreign governments.  With that in mind; and considering all of the downstream consequences from the original selection of Joe Biden as the VP candidate; and considering how those in power now have the tool of the NSA database to control political offices; how long has the intelligence apparatus been involved in selecting the U.S. presidential candidates?

The article above links to the article below, which is well worth your time.

Former President Obama knows exactly what evidence exists against Biden.  [Thread reader]  That's the point.  That's the plan.  Install Biden/Harris then team Obama give the word to their allies in media, stop protecting, release the evidence and remove Biden.  It's the Chicago way. [...] After the initial inquiry, federal investigators maintained the target of the illegal activity was Obama's passport file.  It does not take a stretch to come to the conclusion this was for the sole purpose of cleansing records of information adverse to Obama's candidacy.

A tale of two Bidens.  On the one hand, he [Joe Biden] wants to portray himself as the reasonable, centrist Democrat who slayed the socialist Bernie Sanders and would seek to be the president of all Americans, regardless of party.  He has vowed to work with Republicans to find common ground.  This is the message he wants to deliver to the many voters who dislike President Trump but largely share the center-right political views by which he has governed.  On the other hand, Biden has to assure the left-wing base of his party that he will ram its priorities through Congress using whatever sort of smash-mouth politics is necessary.  To that end, he has declared himself "open" to nuking the Senate filibuster and packing the Supreme Court.  And over the course of the campaign, he has committed to a whole host of other liberal priorities as well.  If Biden wins next month, then the tension between these two Bidens is going to be the central conflict of his presidency.  Ultimately, he will have to choose which set of promises he will fulfill.

Biden Campaign Surrogate on Hunter Biden Emails:  Nobody 'Is Saying They Are Inauthentic'.  A Biden campaign surrogate on Sunday [10/18/2020] did not deny the authenticity of the alleged Hunter Biden emails and texts that were published in the New York Post last week.  "I don't think anybody is saying they are inauthentic," Biden campaigner Jenna Arnold admitted on Fox News after repeatedly trying to steer the conversation to other topics.  Arnold is a national organizer for the Women's March on Washington, and author of the book, Raising Our Hands, which calls for white women to be "more engaged as citizens."  Earlier in the interview, Fox News' weekend anchor Leland Vittert had tried repeatedly to get the Biden surrogate to answer a simple yes or no question.  "Are you saying — is the campaign saying that these emails aren't his?" Vitter asked.  "It's unclear," Arnold answered, getting a little flustered.

Ratcliffe says Hunter Biden laptop, emails 'not part of some Russian disinformation campaign'.  Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe on Monday [10/19/2020] said that Hunter Biden's laptop "is not part of some Russian disinformation campaign," amid claims from House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff suggesting otherwise.  Ratcliffe, during an exclusive interview on FOX Business' "Mornings with Maria," was asked about the allegations from Schiff, D-Calif., who over the weekend said that the Hunter Biden emails suggesting Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden had knowledge of, and was allegedly involved in, his son's foreign business dealings.  "It's funny that some of the people who complain the most about intelligence being politicized are the ones politicizing the intelligence," Ratcliffe said.  "Unfortunately, it is Adam Schiff who said the intelligence community believes the Hunter Biden laptop and emails on it are part of a Russian disinformation campaign."

Multiple simultaneous scandals!
The Companies Of Biden's Brother Received $54 Million In Taxpayer-Funded Loans To Finance Energy Projects In Central America.  Frank Biden's companies received $54 Million in taxpayer-funded loans to finance energy projects in Central America[.]  Just like his son[,] Biden's brother also had no energy experience.  "Clinton Cash" author Peter Schweizer makes the case for Biden family corruption in his new book "Profiles in Corruption:  Abuse of Power by America's Progressive Elite." [...] And, as usual, he doesn't disappoint, with never-before-reported revelations that uncover corruption and abuse of power — all backed up by a mountain of corporate documents and legal filings from around the globe.  Learn about how they are making sweetheart deals, generating side income, bending the law to their own benefits, using legislation to advance their own interests, and much more.

Fear and loathing in the Biden Crime Family.  "I have no response."  That was Dementia Joe Biden's response Friday when he was finally asked about the devastating expose of his son Hunter's emails and so much more.  Those revelations included the crack-addled Hunter whining to one of his daughters that he has to pay 50% of all the cash he collects to "Pop," and that as part of a shady Chinese deal, the so-called "remuneration package" would include "10 held by H for the Big Guy."  "I have no response," the Big Guy told a CBS reporter.  "It's another smear campaign, right up your alley."

$400,000 'is more money than I've ever made': Multimillionaire Joe Biden casually lies to Detroit steelworkers.  Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden told steelworkers at a private home in Detroit last month that he's never made $400,000 during a discussion about raising taxes on wealthy earners.  "Every single thing I talk about, I pay for, by making sure, for the first time, the wealthy begin to pay what they should be paying," Biden said Sept. 9, the Detroit Free Press reported.  "We're not going to punish anybody.  No one making under $400,000, which is more money than I've ever made, is going to have to pay more taxes," the former vice president said.  In fact, that claim is patently false.

Pro-Trump Union Blasts Biden for Lying About Endorsement.  A top official at one of Pennsylvania's most powerful labor groups slammed Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden for falsely boasting of the union's endorsement.  Shawn Steffee, a trustee with Boilermakers Local 154, said that his members were shocked to hear the Democratic nominee claim their support on national television.  While Biden claimed to have "sat down" with union leaders to have an in-depth discussion about his plans, Steffee said the Biden campaign never approached his membership.  Biden's criticism to fracking led Local 154 — the largest local chapter of boilermakers in the country — to endorse President Trump.  "We had a moment of disbelief when our members started blowing our phone up because they said we flip-flopped on our endorsement," Steffee told the Washington Free Beacon.  "Nobody from his staff — nobody — has ever spoken with us, so I don't know where he's coming up with that."

Hunter Becomes the Hunted.  China was not alone in lining the Biden family's pockets with millions of dollars.  So did corrupt officials of Ukraine and more particularly the Ukrainian energy company Burisma.  And the Hunter peculation continued with a tribal bond scheme that landed one of his partners in jail, a partner whose emails to and from Hunter are now in the hands of those determined to unmask the Bidens' misdeeds — and the FBI's hiding and failing to act on them.  There is no question that the FBI had access to the same material and seems to have done nothing with it.  Nor did the Special Counsel. [...] For the most part, except for the New York Post and Fox, the scandal has been kept under a lid by the press, Twitter, and Facebook.  The Washington Post, NBC, and The Hill seem to be leading the defense with another cockamamie claim that this is just Russian disinformation.

How Do We Know the Hunter/Joe Biden Documents Are Real?  The Post's documents show a level of corruption that is remarkable even by Swamp standards — for example, Joe Biden proposing to take equity in a Chinese company secretly, through a 10 percent stake held on his behalf by Hunter.  But how do we know that they are genuine?  First, because Biden hasn't denied that the hard drive belonged to Hunter, and the documents contained thereon are real.  His calling the Post's stories a "smear" was a non-denial denial.  Second, because there is a witness.  The Democrats have to be careful, because there is a real, live repair shop owner who is ready to explain what happened and to vouch for the integrity of the hard drive.  I think this is largely why Biden et al. have gone to ground rather than seriously contest the corruption to which Hunter's files testify.

Bishops for Biden.  [Scroll down]  The latest bishop to throw dust into Catholics' eyes about [Joe] Biden is Robert McElroy, the bishop of San Diego. [...] Any bishop who minimizes the slaughter of the unborn as a "single question of public policy" should hang up his mitre.  Secondly, hasn't McElroy noticed that Biden opposes Church teaching not just on a "single issue" but on a legion of them?  Biden opposes Church teaching on everything from embryonic stem-cell research to gay marriage to sex education.  He is running with an open anti-Catholic bigot in Kamala Harris, who considers mere membership in the Knights of Columbus to be a disqualification for service on the court.  At last week's town hall, he encouraged a child to come out as transgender.  He has officiated at a gay wedding.  Biden opposes Catholic moral teaching at every turn. [...] Why does McElroy ignore all of this?  Because he doesn't agree with the Church's teachings either.  He is a Democratic activist in a collar.

Why Does Biden Think He's 'Saving America's Soul'?  [Scroll down]  With Biden, it's no longer certain (if it ever was) if he's lying or if he's just forgotten what he said before.  What is certain is that the idea of fighting a spiritual war against Trump and his "enablers" keeps Biden's supporters and the mainstream media (but I repeat myself) distracted, self-assured, and uninterested in other issues they'd rather not discuss.  These include:  Biden's pedestrian record in the Senate, his foreign policy blunders, his plagiarism, his racial insensitivities, his 1994 crime bill, his forgettable turn as vice president, Tara Reade, his hair sniffing, the riots, his Chinese and Ukraine connections, his lukewarm base, his growing senility, his stance on court packing, Hunter and China, Hunter and Burisma, and Hunter's [...] laptop that threatens to expose him for the corrupt phony that he is.  Luckily for him, reporters don't want to discuss those things either.  That would waste precious time that could otherwise be spent bashing the president.

Email Sent to Computer Shop Owner John Paul Mac Isaac from Hunter Biden's Attorney Is Released.  Rudy Giuliani was in the news this week after the explosive Biden Crime Family emails went public.  Giuliani was approached by computer repairman John Paul Mac Isaac after Hunter Biden, a known drug addict, turned over his computers to the store and then refused to come pick them up.  The FBI took the hard drives from the computer and then hid them from the American public, President Trump, Congress and the executive branch.  On Friday intel expert Larry C. Johnson, who contributes at The Gateway Pundit, interviewed the computer store owner John Paul Mac Isaac.  John Paul Mac Isaac shared his story with Larry.  And he told Larry Johnson that he received an email LAST WEEK from Hunter Biden's attorney!  The Biden team was evidently tipped off that Hunter's emails, photos and videos were about to make headlines!

Sen. Johnson:  Has the FBI had the Hunter Biden laptop material for ten months?  A Senate Republican leader has raised new questions about the FBI's actions in the wake of news about alleged conflicts of interests involving former Vice President Joe Biden, his son Hunter, and foreign influence and business opportunities.  A whistleblower says that many months ago, he provided the FBI contents of a laptop computer once used by Hunter Biden.  That's according to a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray sent today by Chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.). The letter states that an unnamed whistleblower contacted Sen. Johnson's committee on September 24, a day after the committee released its investigation into alleged Biden conflicts of interest.

Hunter Biden Has An Armory Of Smoking Guns.  If you thought we were done with smoking guns among Biden's email treasure trove, think again: [...] At this point, I think even liberal campaign professionals have to be impressed by the operational security Team Trump has maintained to successfully roll out these October surprises right on schedule.  Whoever they have running it it (Barr?  Giuliani?  Don Jr.?) has managed to keep a lid on everything until now.  This is a huge contrast with the first year of the Trump Administration, which leaked like a sieve until Trump fired those responsible for the leaks and got the right people in place.

The Biden Emails Prove Impeachment Was A Sham.  Remember January?  I know it feels like several lifetimes ago, the before times of life as we used to know it.  But think back to the biggest story of those chilly days.  It wasn't the Chinese virus slowly spreading to our shores or the Democratic presidential primary.  No, it was the impeachment of the president of the United States.  This week's bombshell New York Post story on Hunter Biden now shows what many of us suspected:  The impeachment was a ridiculous sham.  The basis for the impeachment, for those whose recollections are understandably shaky, was that President Trump pressured the president of Ukraine to launch investigations into the energy company Burisma for the purely political purpose of hurting Joe Biden.  Central to that allegation was the argument that Trump and the United States had no legitimate interest in seeing Burisma investigated.  If the trove of emails from Hunter Biden's laptop are accurate, and they have not been disputed, then this argument falls to pieces.

Conservatism Now Means Defeating the Establishment.  [Scroll down]  The FBI got the Hunter Biden computer about a year ago, a computer full of emails about the Democrat nominee's crack-curious son's adventures in influence peddling with Ukrainian robber barons and the Chi-Coms, and if some computer repair guy in New Jersey hadn't thought to keep a copy of the contents the FBI would have deep-sixed the hard drive just like it did Weiner's laptop in service of their Establishment masters.  In fact, leakers are leaking that it's the Russians at it again in order to actively and willfully cover up the biggest corruption story in American history.

The Bidens and the Crooked Ukrainian Prosecutors.  During the time Joe Biden was US point man on Ukraine, there were three Ukrainian Prosecutors General.  The first, Vitaly Yerema and the third, Yuriy Lutsenko, actively helped Burisma, the Ukrainian oil and gas company, escape responsibility for the theft of Ukraine's oil and gas assets.  Biden did not speak out against them and made no effort to force either of them from office.  Coincidentally, his son Hunter and Hunter's business partner, Devon Archer, were on the payroll of Burisma.  Only one, Viktor Shokin, pursued Burisma and its owner Mykola Zlochevsky.  Shokin put seizures on their assets and issued a warrant for Zlochevsky's arrest should he return to Ukraine.  Yet Shokin, not Yerema and not Lutsenko, was the one Prosecutor General that Biden called out and forced from office.  In fact, I am aware of no other instance in which the United States demanded the firing of a prosecutor in a country to which we supplied foreign aid, no matter how corrupt.  If not unprecedented, what Biden did in Ukraine was at least extraordinary.

5 Other Things We'll Learn About Biden After The Election.  [#1] Biden is a far-left liberal with a big agenda. [...] The Green New Deal that Biden says he opposes, for example, is contradicted by his own campaign website:  "Biden believes the Green New Deal is a crucial framework for meeting the climate challenges we face."  Biden wants to eliminate carbon emissions from power plants by 2035, which is only five years later than the socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's Green New Deal.  He plans to reach net-zero carbon emissions for the entire country by 2050, which is the same deadline as the GND. [...] Biden's tax-and-spend plans are just as ambitious, and on social issues, Biden is as leftist as they get.  Should Biden win, he will be able to claim that he has a mandate to do all the things he's never talked about during the campaign.  And the press will be by his side screaming Mandate!  Mandate!

Hey, Joe Biden, what did you know about Hunter's crook emails?  Up to now, the Democrats' presidential nominee has gotten away with the fiction that he never talked to his son Hunter about Hunter's suspect business dealings in Ukraine, China and elsewhere.  The repeated claim was never credible, especially when it was revealed that Hunter flew on Air Force Two with his father to Beijing and came home with a $1.5 billion commitment from a Chinese bank for a new investment firm.  So they flew to China and back together and we're supposed to believe the father never asked the son who he was seeing in China and why.  C'mon, man.  The Joe-knows-nothing defense has now been exposed as a lie by The Post's publication of the e-mail from a Ukrainian adviser to Burisma, the energy firm that put Hunter on its board for up to $83,000 a month.  In the e-mail, Vadym Pozharskyi thanked Hunter for setting up a meeting with then-Vice President Biden.

Twitter refuses to unlock New York Post account unless Hunter Biden posts [are] deleted.  Twitter has refused to unlock the New York Post's account since Wednesday [10/14/2020] unless the outlet deletes six tweets about its reporting on 2020 Democratic nominee Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, the Post reported.  Both the San Francisco-based social media platform and Facebook came under fire this week after the two blocked users from sharing a Post article showing purported communication between 2020 Democratic nominee Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, and an adviser to a Ukrainian energy company.  The younger Biden's work in the country while his father was vice president was at the heart of President Trump's impeachment trial earlier this year.

Conservative Actor Jon Voight Gets Serious In New Election Message: 'Biden Is Evil'.  Actor Jon Voight is a Trump supporter and has been since the early days of the 2016 election.  Over the last few years, Voight has released videos here and there to show his support for the president.  He just released a new video where he takes a pretty harsh view of Joe Biden.  He actually calls Biden evil.  And before you say this is over the top, just remember the left has been calling Trump evil for four years now.

Matt Gaetz tweets out entire Hunter Biden story line by line to evade Twitter block.  Rep. Matt Gaetz, Florida Republican, had an idea on how to get around Twitter's block of the New York Post's Hunter Biden bombshell:  Tweet it out one line at a time.  He said Twitter had censored the New York Post, the House Judiciary Republicans, White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany and "thousands of other users for sharing this damning story on Hunter Biden."  "So I'm tweeting the entire story line by line in a thread below," Mr. Gaetz said on Thursday, urging readers to retweet it "before it's deleted!"  Sure enough, the multi-tweet thread included the story as well as photos and graphics from the New York Post's Wednesday scoop about Hunter Biden's dealings with the Ukrainian natural-gas company Burisma Holdings during his father's tenure as vice president.

Biden: Muslims Will Serve 'At Every Level' of His Administration.  The sparse attendance and conspicuous lack of enthusiasm at Joe Biden's rallies seems to have led old Joe's handlers, despite his 10,000-point lead in the polls, to decide that another round of Islamopandering might be just the shot in the arm their campaign needs.  After all, hard-Leftists such as Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib and Linda Sarsour are all Muslims, and all were firmly in the Bernie Sanders camp before the Democratic National Committee shivved their man yet again.  Their support for Biden has been decidedly tepid.  And so it was time to send them some love.  On Wednesday [10/14/2020], Biden released a video message to Muslim Advocates, the association of Muslim lawyers that bears the primary responsibility for demanding, back in 2010, that the Obama administration remove all mention of Islam and jihad from counterterror training.  Obama, of course, immediately complied, despite the fact that this would hamstring the ability of law enforcement and intelligence agencies to understand, and defeat, jihadists.

Is this another reason the FBI hid the Hunter Biden Laptop?  It didn't surprise the informed, and understandably a bit cynical, to hear that the FBI sat on Hunter Biden's laptop instead of seeking justice.  The bureau was previously involved in an illegal plot to take down Donald Trump, after all, and its Deep State elements would assuredly love to see Joe Biden succeed him in January.  So why would they reveal damning information on their establishment hope?  Yet suppressing Huntergate perhaps provided a secondary benefit:  The information could be used against Biden once he was in office.  This wouldn't be anything new.  It's believed that longtime, legendary FBI director J. Edgar Hoover used "dirt files" on politicians for leverage; for one thing, it's said, this enabled him to remain bureau head for as long as he wished.

Mainstream media treats Joe Biden like he's incapable of handling challenges.  Mainstream media has zero respect for Joe Biden.  None.  They've learned from multiple experiences the last few months that anytime he's asked a question that does not have a simple answer given to him on a silver platter, he botches it badly.  Last night's town hall was no exception.  He wasn't just lobbed softballs.  They walked the balls over to him and threw them at the bat.  And sometimes, he still found a way to miss.  In lieu of a question-by-question breakdown, I'll skip the torture and cut to the chase.  Biden was not asked about the extraordinarily credible accusations against him and his son, Hunter.  If it were President Trump, they would have asked.  If it were Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton, they would have asked and had the confidence that either of them would be prepared to properly diffuse the situation and put Americans' minds at ease.  But with Joe Biden, they won't ask him.  They know he'll butcher it because they know the accusations are spot on.

Is Twitter, Facebook censorship of New York Post Biden-Ukraine story the beginning of social tyranny?  Twitter and Facebook have both limited distribution of an Oct. 14 report from the New York Post's Emma-Jo Morris and Gabrielle Fonrouge entitled, "Smoking-gun email reveals how Hunter Biden introduced Ukrainian businessman to VP dad" detailing an alleged meeting between former Vice President Joe Biden and Burisma executive Vadym Pozharskyi who Biden's son, Hunter, used to work for, in April 2015.  The Wall Street Journal's Robert McMillan and Jeff Horwitz reported on Oct. 15, "Twitter on Wednesday blocked users from posting links to the articles, initially citing a potential violation of its rules regarding hacked materials.  The company later said the articles also violated its policies on displaying private information like email addresses and phone numbers without a person's permission... Twitter's move came after Facebook also limited the distribution of the articles on its platform, saying it was awaiting guidance from its third-party fact-checking partners — independent organizations that routinely review the accuracy of viral content.  Facebook has slowed the spread of the Post articles pending a decision by those partners, company spokesman Andy Stone said in a Twitter message on Wednesday morning."

What the MSM TV coverage doesn't show you at a Biden Potemkin rally.  Mainstream media coverage of Joe Biden's campaign rallies depicts a false façade, giving an impression of a normal political event.  But the reality is as phony as the façades of prosperous villages that Catherine The Great's political advisor (and lover) Grigori Potemkin erected for her to view from her imperial barge, masking the misery of her subjects.  Potemkin today is remembered chiefly for the expression "Potemkin village," defined as "an impressive facade or show designed to hide an undesirable fact or condition."  (Check the link quickly before Merriam-Webster changes the definition to conform with the political interests of the Democrats.)  A hilarious Twitter video has survived the "fact checkers" at the social media giant (for now), panning from away the podium to show the handful of people — apparenlty, mostly media — standing around and sorta watching Biden's bizarrely impassioned speech to a parking lot in Novi, Michigan (a Detroit suburb) last Friday, [...]

Steve Bannon boasted 'I have Hunter's hard drive' two weeks before its secrets were revealed.  Associates of a dissident Chinese billionaire made cryptic posts about 'three hard disks' about Hunter Biden which would cause 'a big money and sex scandal' almost two weeks before their release, it emerged Friday [10/16/2020].  An online post — which mentioned 'videos and dossiers' — appeared to anticipate the release of the cache of potentially damaging information about Joe Biden's son that first appeared in the New York Post this week.  And on Friday a Dutch journalist revealed that Steve Bannon had boasted on September 28:  'I have the hard drive of Hunter Biden.'

Giuliani Explains How He Claims He Verified Hunter Biden's Laptop.  Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani explained how he says he verified the laptop at the center of the Hunter Biden email scandal in an exclusive interview with the Daily Caller's senior White House correspondent Christian Datoc on Thursday.  According to Giuliani, the laptop contains lewd images of Hunter Biden as well as emails that — if authentic — would suggest Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden both knew of and participated in his son's business dealings in Ukraine and China.  Biden has previously denied connections to the dealings.  Giuliani claims texts messages and other communications on the hard drive describe meetings he says only Hunter Biden would have been able to know about.  He told the Caller that his own investigations into the Biden case had uncovered an off-the-record meeting in the State Department, and further claims that this meeting was mentioned at the correct date and time in text messages saved on the hard drive.

That 'Impassioned' Speech Biden Gave in Detroit? 'Sneaked' Video of 'Yuuge' Teleprompter Shows How LOL It Was.  As I was writing an article, yesterday [10/16/2020], Fox News began to air a Joe Biden "rally" in Novi, Michigan, a suburb of Detroit.  The first thing that struck me was how faux-impassioned Biden came across as he delivered the speech.  The second thing that struck me was how "Sleepy Joe" stared straight ahead as if he were in a trance.  I posted on Facebook as I was watching:  "Oh, THIS is embarrassing.  Biden is faux-SCREAMING a speech in Detroit as we speak.  Poor dude looks clueless."  While we've seen multiple examples of Biden's staged events, this one just had a different, creepy, almost Orwellian feel.  It was just weird.  As luck would have it, a video clip of the "rally" has emerged, apparently taken by one of the few attendees, which provides "the rest of the story" of Biden's weird speech.

Biden's big teleprompter
Someone got a video of Biden reading off his giant teleprompter at his "rally" in Detroit yesterday.  [Tweet]


Person on Hunter Biden/China Email Thread Allegedly Verifies the Email and It Gets Even Worse for Joe Biden.  The NY Post story about the laptop of alleged Hunter Biden emails has rocked the last days of the election.  Given a year of extremes and unusual things, perhaps it's right in line with that.  It's 2020.  Some on the left have suggested the emails are not real despite the fact that email addresses are real and there are allegedly pictures and videos of Hunter Biden on the laptop that have been published by the NY Post.  But now comes evidence that may put paid to that argument.  This may be game, set and match, right here.  One of the people involved in the email thread which allegedly appears to involve a payout to Joe Biden as part of a deal with Chinese energy firm has confirmed the authenticity of the email.

About That Hunter Biden Laptop.  Immediately, questions were raised as to the provenance of the laptop.  Fair questions.  I mean, the story is rather fantastical.  Yet, you'll note that the Biden camp hasn't denied that the e-mails and photos are authentic.  To the extent they've addressed it at all (I mean directly, not through Big Tech's intervention), they've quibbled with some of the interpretations and danced around the issue of whether an actual meeting between the elder Biden and Hunter's Ukrainian business associate/Burisma executive occurred.  ("Well, it wasn't on his official calendar!"  You don't say?!)  In other words, despite the warranted skepticism as to how exactly a Delaware computer repair shop owner with admitted partisan preferences just happened to wind up with a water-damaged laptop full of damning evidence pertaining to the former Vice President and would-be President and his son (which then found its way to Rudy Giuliani), it appears that said damning evidence may, indeed, be the real deal, rather than a fabricated ruse.

The Gaslight Election Won't Work.  [Scroll down]  Today, though, the Democrats, quite deliberately, have turned the 2020 presidential election from a contest into a referendum.  This explains the Democratic Party power brokers' selection of Biden to serve as a "safe" face for the party, one that needs to do little more than read platitudes from his teleprompter.  Biden is not driving and has not driven the campaign.  He and his running mate, Senator Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), are both along for the opaque windowed limousine ride.  Biden-Harris are nothing but a Democratic generic ballot:  "Who would you vote for today, President Trump or a Democrat?"  Yet, the American electorate is still accustomed to being respected enough that a party is expected to provide a real candidate and positions on issues. [...] Offering little more than free stuff, fear, and hate, the Democrats want you to vote based upon the president's personality, not his policies — let alone his proven accomplishments.  Hiding both their candidate and their issues from the voters ought to be disqualifying among self-respecting voters.

'It's only going to get worse': Trump on Biden after major stumble.  While giving a speech, Joe Biden forgot he was running for president.  So, what happens if he actually wins the election?  Will he forget to fulfill his presidential duties?  Who knows.  President Trump on Tuesday claimed that Biden's "dementia" is "getting worse," firing at the former vice president for seeming to forget Sen. Mitt Romney's name and for saying he was running for the Senate during a campaign speech on Monday.

Beyond Hunter's MacBook:  Email account of his ex-busines partner reveals high level Chinese group bought hidden access to Biden at the White House.  The evidence establishing a shocking pattern is now clear:  Hunter Biden and his busines partners sold access to Joe Biden when he was the Obama administration's point man on China.  This took place during the period when US jobs were being exported to China by the millions.  Hunter earned many millions of dollars and funneled a share of that money to his father, in return for selling out American workers.  An entirely new source — a business partner of Hunter Biden who has "flipped" and granted full access (i.e., his username password) to years of his Gmail email account — reveals that access to then-VP Biden in the White House was granted in 2011 to a high level group of member of the Chinese Communist Party with a keen interest in US trade policy, as that policy was being formulated.

The FBI Is Investigating Hunter Biden, but the Reason Will Make You Angry.  As RedState has been covering extensively, Hunter Biden's emails have laid out more evidence of influence peddling and corruption among Joe Biden and his son.  Former denials have been blown up as it appears certain that the former VP was well aware of what his son was doing.  The latest email drop even asserts that Joe Biden was getting monetary kickbacks.  To say this is a big scandal is an understatement, regardless of whether the media want to cover it or not.  Meanwhile, another part of this was that the FBI has supposedly had this information since last year.  Now, we know they are investigating, but it's for the most ridiculous, yet predictable reason you could imagine.  Instead of looking into whether laws were broken by the corruption of Joe and Hunter Biden, the FBI is hot on the case of whether the emails are "Russian misinformation."

How The Mainstream Media Covered For Joe Biden.  At a Democratic primary debate last year, Biden emphatically denied any wrongdoing.  "My son did nothing wrong.  I did nothing wrong," Biden said.  Following the debate, CNN wrote this headline, "Joe Biden offers forceful defense of his son's Ukraine work at Democratic debate."  Evidently Biden's "forceful" defense was sincere enough for CNN to absolve him of any wrongdoing.  Of course, when Trump accurately denied that he colluded with the Russian government to interfere in our election, CNN decided not to believe his "forceful" defense and instead chose to mislead the American people for three years.  The New York Times, apparently satisfied that there was nothing to see, wrote, "...no evidence has surfaced that the former vice president intentionally tried to help his son by pressing for the prosecutor's dismissal."  Around the same time as the Times article came out, Buzzfeed published an article titled, "Trump's Attacks On Hunter Biden Have Gone Nowhere, But He Can't Let Them Go."

Media Tries to Use Hunter Biden's Drug Problem to Protect Daddy Joe.  As everyone knows, Joe Biden has had his cravenness and corruption publicly exposed via a series of emails residing on at least one laptop belonging to Hunter Biden.  The emails show that Joe Biden was not merely a doting father who corruptly peddled his influence to create business opportunities for a ne'er-do-well son; he was a direct beneficiary of those business opportunities.  The emails are being attacked on two fronts.  Both attacks are ridiculous.  Both are pathetic in their transparency.  On the one hand, we have the same people who fluffed the Steele Dossier for four years as gospel now claiming, with zero evidence, that the whole thing is a Kremlin plot.  The other attack is "leave Hunter out of it because he's an addict."  In essence, this attack says that if you use the emails, you are hurting Hunter's recovery, and that makes you a very, very bad man.

The Media Can't Get Their Story Straight on Hunter Biden, and They Think You're Stupid.  Things have progressed quickly since the New York Post dropped its first report showing that Hunter Biden had used his influence to setup a meeting between his father and a Burisma associate.  That company was, of course, paying Hunter $50,000+ a month to peddle influence, as has been confirmed by language in the aforementioned emails.  But the matter got far more serious for Joe Biden last night when another email was confirmed real by a participant in the chain.  That email showed that the elder Biden was allegedly getting a cut of Hunter's payoffs from these foreign companies.  While the initial corruption was disqualifying enough, this takes it to another level.  Unfortunately, instead of taking this story seriously, our stalwart journalistic institutions are doing their best to bury the story.  The problem is that they can't get their story straight.

FBI probing if Russia involved in Hunter Biden email story.  A New York tabloid's puzzling account about how it acquired emails purportedly from Joe Biden's son has raised some red flags.  One of the biggest involves the source of the emails:  Rudy Giuliani.  Giuliani has traveled abroad looking for dirt on the Bidens, developing relationships with shadowy figures, including a Ukrainian lawmaker who U.S. officials have described as a Russian agent and part of a broader Russian effort to denigrate the Democratic presidential nominee.

Hunter Biden Business Associate Flips From Prison, Releases Emails Detailing China Influence-Peddling Operation.  Emails from a former business associate of Hunter Biden's inner-circle who's serving time in prison for a 2016 investment scheme reveal that Hunter and his colleagues used their access to the Obama administration to peddle influence to potential Chinese clients and investors — including securing a private, off-the-books meeting with the former Vice President.  The emails, given to investigative journalist Peter Schweizer by former Biden associate Bevan Cooney and published by Breitbart also reveal that in 2011, the younger Biden and his business associates discussed strengthening relations with "China Inc." as part of a "new push on soft diplomacy for the Chinese."  As Breitbart notes, these emails are completely unconnected to the Hunter Biden emails released by the New York Post.

'The big guy': Is Joe Biden a presidential candidate or the godfather of a mafia-style crime family?  It looks like the latter, based on the latest revelations from Hunter Biden's abandoned MacBook Pro computer, which at this point has so many damning revelations coming from it it's starting to remind me of the captured FARC computer of 2007.  The latest emails reveal a man obsessed with getting his payment cut for "introductions" to people like his dad, not just with the Ukrainians, but the Chinese, to the tune of tens of thousands, if not millions of dollars.  Hunter in fact drove a hard bargain for his "introductions" to his father and perhaps others in the Obama administration and the cash rolled in.  And American foreign policy became quite the object out there for sale.  Imagine this machine scarfing up cash, and combine it with the Clinton and maybe Obama [political] machines also scarfing up cash from third world satraps eager for an audience.  More ominous still, the cash wasn't all for Hunter.  Joe Biden apparently got some, quite a director's cut really, [...]

Rudy Giuliani Describes the Bidens as a Crime Family.  Here's Why We Should Listen to Him.  Rudy Giuliani is all over the news these days, detailing the emails and documents on that MacBook Pro laptop purported to have belonged to Hunter Biden.  According to Giuliani, only about 5% of the hard drive's relevant content has been published.  That 5% already paints Joe Biden as either the figurehead or director of a conspiracy to use his political positions to generate millions of dollars from dubious and even hostile foreign sources, with son Hunter as the prime conduit.  The money goes to the Biden family.  It's an explosive charge.  The Democratic Party's presidential nominee could be the head of a syndicate trading on U.S. power as a product.  Such would also greatly endanger American national security and corrupt our government at the very highest level.

Hunter Biden's laptop and the Facebook, Twitter censorship scandal — watch these 3 things.  When the story broke in the New York Post, the Biden campaign was faced with thousands of emails that purportedly showed clear support for allegations that Hunter Biden was given millions as part of an influence-peddling scheme related to his father, then-Vice President Joe Biden.  There was ample reason to be skeptical about the sketchy account of a computer being left by Hunter Biden at a computer store with a man who cannot see beyond a couple of feet.  And then there is the timing of disclosure just weeks before an election.  The problem was the absence of "barks" from the Biden camp.  The computer files revealed a host of embarrassing pictures of Hunter Biden using drugs or exposed in other embarrassing ways.  The emails contain dates and addresses that match up with confirmed records.  If they are fabricated, there were three barks that we would have expected within hours of the release. [...]

Numerous Lawmakers Send Letter To FBI Director Demanding Answers About Hunter Biden Laptop.  Nineteen House lawmakers sent a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray this week demanding answers about a laptop allegedly belonging to Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, following explosive reports that were published in the New York Post.  "Yesterday, the New York Post published an article entitled, 'Smoking-gun email reveals how Hunter Biden introduced Ukrainian businessman to VP dad,'" the letter, dated Thursday, stated.  "The article documents how a recently uncovered laptop and hard drive allegedly revealed e-mails to and from Hunter Biden that strongly indicated that former Vice President Joe Biden was, in fact, aware of his son's overseas dealings."

TV News Networks Bury Hunter Biden Story with Less Than 10 Minutes of Coverage Over 2 Days.  As Twitter worked overtime this week to suppress the bombshell New York Post reporting about emails allegedly linking Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden to his son's shady business dealings, network and cable news broadcasts cumulatively gave the story fewer than 10 minutes of air time over two days. [...] While much of the country expressed shock and dismay that Twitter would go to such extreme lengths to keep a potentially damning story for Biden from being read, the establishment media was right on cue helping to ensure the story would die.

FNC's Wallace: 'I'm Suspicious' of NY Post Hunter Biden Story — Giuliani Not a 'Reliable Source'.  Fox News Channel's anchor Chris Wallace commented on a New York Post article that purports to show emails from Hunter Biden linking his father, former Vice President Joe Biden, to his Ukraine business dealings, Friday on "America Newsroom."  Wallace said, "I can understand the concern about this story.  It is completely unverified, and frankly, Rudy Giuliani is not the most reliable source anymore.  I hate to say that, but it's just true."

The Editor says...
Even if one does not trust Mr. Giuliani, how would Mr. Giuliani have fabricated photographs and videos of Hunter Biden?  The evidence speaks for itself, regardless of who is presenting it.

Biden says he'll 'absolutely' raise taxes on job-creating corporations despite COVID economic downturn.  Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden said during an ABC News town hall Thursday he would seek to dramatically raise taxes on job-creating corporations and wealthy Americans despite lingering economic malaise caused by COVID-19-related business closures and lockdowns.  After moderator George Stephanopoulos asked the former vice president if he planned on raising the corporate tax rate even as the economy continues to struggle amid the pandemic, Biden responded, "Absolutely."  Throughout his candidacy, Biden has said he would move to repeal and eliminate tax cuts passed by the GOP-controlled Congress and President Donald Trump in December 2017.

Joe Biden Lashes Out at Reporter for Asking About Hunter Emails:  "I Have No Response.  Another Smear Campaign".  Democrat presidential nominee former Vice President Joe Biden lashed out at a reporter who asked him about the New York Post reports about his son Hunter Biden's alleged emails that reportedly detail corrupt foreign business dealings by Hunter that implicate Biden while he was vice president.  Biden spoke to reporters after a car rally in Detroit.  According to a pool report, Biden said, "I knew you'd ask it.  I have no response.  Another smear campaign.  Right up your alley."

Giuliani: Hunter Biden's Attorney Contacted Computer Repairman After NY Post Story Broke, Wanted Hard Drive Back.  After the New York Post broke the bombshell report detailing evidence found on a computer hard drive of the Biden family's influence peddling, Hunter Biden's attorney contacted the computer repairman who found the incriminating material, and asked for the computer hard drive back, President Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani revealed on Steven Crowder's podcast, Thursday [10/15/2020].  In addition to that, the former New York mayor divulged that there are dozens of "disturbing" photos of Hunter Biden "doing an imitation of Anthony Weiner," and many more indicating that he had "a very massive drug addition."  "He's like a zombie," Giuliani told Crowder.  He also said there are texts describing a transaction between Hunter and Joe Biden and "a Communist Chinese intelligence operative" — which appeared to have been a set up for extortion.

The Editor says...
Hunter Biden can't say it wasn't his computer — his attorney just confirmed it by asking for its return.

Biden Snaps At Reporter For Asking About Bombshell New York Post Reports, Does Not Deny.  Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden snapped at a CBS News reporter late on Friday night for asking about the bombshell reports published this week in the New York Post about the business dealings of his son, Hunter Biden, and Joe Biden's actions as vice president.  When asked by Bo Erickson what his response was to the reports, Joe Biden said, "I have no response." Biden lashed out at the reporter, saying, "I know you'd ask it" and that it was a "smear campaign" that was "right up" the reporter's "alley," adding, "those are the questions you always ask."

On Hunter Biden, remember the real story.  The big story is:  Did Hunter Biden introduce that Ukrainian businessman to his vice president father?  That would be important for two reasons.  One, we already know that the corrupt Ukrainian energy company, Burisma, put the younger Biden on its board to win influence with the Obama administration, whose point man on Ukraine policy was Hunter Biden's father Joe, then vice president of the United States.  The New York Post story suggests that Burisma actually got something for the $50,000 (or more) it was paying Hunter Biden.  The New York Post story might also shed light on Joe Biden's flat denial of knowledge about Hunter Biden's Burisma connection.  "I have never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings," Joe Biden said in September 2019.

15 Crazy Things Joe Biden Said at the ABC Town Hall.  Former Vice President Joe Biden appeared on ABC on Thursday night for a rambling town hall, in lieu of a debate, opposite a town hall for President Donald Trump on NBC at the same time.  Aside from many factually-challenged statements, Biden said a number of truly outlandish things.  [For example,] 8-year-olds should be allowed to decide they are transgender.  Biden:  "The idea that an 8-year-old child, a 10-year-old child, decides, you know, I want to be transgender, that's what I think I'd like to be, it'd make my life a lot easier — there should be zero discrimination."  (What happens when the 8-year-olds hit puberty?)

Emails: Burisma Adviser Told Hunter Biden His 'Ultimate Purpose' Was to 'Close Down' Investigations.  An adviser to the Ukrainian energy company Burisma suggested in an email in 2015 that Hunter Biden was expected to provide "deliverables" for the company, including the "ultimate purpose" of stopping "cases/pursuits into the company's founder.  The email, contained in a batch published by Ken LaCorte at the Media Action Network, is reportedly from the same laptop that the New York Post claims is the source for source for a recent series of articles about Hunter Biden's business dealings.  The authenticity of the emails has not been verified.

Biden campaign 'glad' Twitter, Facebook censored Post's Hunter Biden exposé.  Joe Biden's campaign said Thursday [10/15/2020] they had no problem with Twitter and Facebook's unprecedented censoring of The [New York] Post's bombshell reporting on Hunter Biden's business dealings — even admitting they were "glad" it happened.  Biden campaign national press secretary Jamal Brown went so far as to claim that the gagging of one of America's largest news organizations "made clear" that The Post's reporting on Ukraine- and China-related documents from a Hunter Biden hard drive was untrue.

Buckle up:  Hunter Biden laptop scandal may be about to get a whole lot worse.  [Scroll down]  Before Rudy Giuliani was "America's Mayor," he was one of America's top prosecutors, which included bringing down mafia crime families.  And he has evidence — from Hunter — that implicates not only Hunter and Joe Biden, but also James (Joe's brother) and Sara (James's wife).  One set of payments from China went to a triad of Bidens:  James, Hunter, and Sara.  Don't worry, Giuliani says — you're going to see it in the texts, not making it up.  The fact he was one of America's top prosecutors makes the ending of the video even more damning:  "I've been in this business a long time.  This is the biggest cover-up I have ever seen.  And it is the biggest government scandal, I've ever heard of." [...] Believe it or not, it gets worse from there for Joe Biden.  Laying out the case further, Giuliani points right at the defendant, accusing Joe of "certainly [committing] a crime.  Because some of that money from Ukraine, illegal money for bribes, went to Joe Biden."  Remember: these are all accusations after Giuliani has read through the emails, the texts, and the contents of the hard drive.  Unlike the Facebook/Twitter "fact-checker" minions, Giuliani has seen the evidence.

Delaware's most famous computer repairman:  Hunter Biden's alleged laptop contained "disturbing" items.  [Scroll down]  When I raised some skepticism about this part of the story yesterday as to why the repairman would have thought to call the FBI, a number of people responded to say that computer repair specialists see a lot of weird stuff.  Fair enough, and that would also explain why someone might drop off a laptop with incriminating sex and crack-smoking images and video, too.  Some people just aren't too bright, although it's tough to believe that Hunter would have let a laptop with the very smoking gun on Ukraine that Rudy Giuliani had been seeking for two years out of his sight.  But if the stuff was so disturbing that Isaac didn't want it in his shop, why did he make a copy of it and keep it for himself for months afterward?

The Editor says...
Either the laptops and their contents really are Hunter Biden's, or the computer technician is the greatest and most prolific fiction writer in history.  Aside from the emails, how would the computer tech have created embarrassing photos and videos of Hunter Biden?  As far as I can tell, the authenticity of the laptop computer and its contents is beyond any reasonable doubt.  The timing of the release is surprisingly (politically) convenient, in mid-October, but it's better to hear it now than in mid-November.

Joe Biden: 8-Year-Olds Should Be Allowed to Decide They're Transgender.  Former Vice President Joe Biden said during a town hall hosted by ABC News on Thursday night [10/15/2020] that eight-year-olds should be allowed to decide that they are transgender.

Facebook and Twitter Cross a Line Far More Dangerous Than What They Censor.  The New York Post is one of the country's oldest and largest newspapers. [...] On Wednesday morning, the paper published on its cover what it heralded as a "blockbuster" scoop: "smoking gun" evidence, in its words, in the form of emails purportedly showing that Joe Biden's son, Hunter, traded on his father's position by securing favors from the then-Vice President to benefit the Ukranian energy company Burisma, which paid the supremely unqualified Hunter $50,000 each month to sit on its Board.  While the Biden campaign denies that any such meetings or favors ever occurred, neither the campaign nor Hunter, at least as of now, has denied the authenticity of the emails.  The Post's hyping of the story as some cataclysmic bombshell was overblown.  While these emails, if authenticated, provide some new details and corroboration, the broad outlines of this story have long been known:  Hunter was paid a very large monthly sum by Burisma at the same time that his father was quite active in using the force of the U.S. Government to influence Ukraine's internal affairs.

The Editor says...
Yes, "the broad outlines of this story have long been known," but not known well enough.  Until now, nobody had credible, courtroom-quality evidence of wholesale graft.  Until this week, it was possible to shrug it off as damaging, but not damaging enough.  After all, the party bosses have made their selection, Joe Biden is the nominee, and the show must go on!

No, Joe Biden, Cops Can't Just Shoot People in the Leg.  During ABC's town hall event with former Vice President Joe Biden, the Democratic Party's presidential candidate provided a garbled response to a question about criminal justice reform.  In particular, he wrongly suggested that when police fire their weapons at suspects, they could shoot to wound instead of shooting to kill.  "You can ban chokeholds, but beyond that you have to teach [the police] how to de-escalate circumstances," said Biden.  "So instead of anybody coming at you and the first thing you do is shoot to kill, you shoot them in the leg."  This was just one line in a very long, rambling answer to a question about police violence — but it stuck out for its sheer absurdity.  The suggestion betrays a total lack of understanding about how guns work.

Biden's Idea For Cops To Aim For The Leg Is Dumb And Dangerous.  This is at least the second time that Joe Biden has proclaimed that policing reform should include training law enforcement officers to shoot armed suspects in the leg, rather than aiming for center mass.  The first occasion was back in early June, at an AME church in Wilmington, Delaware, days after the riots in Minneapolis broke out after the death of George Floyd.  The second time was Thursday night during an ABC town hall in front of a crowd of several million Americans less than three weeks before Election Day.  This is absolute idiocy, and I can't believe that no one on Joe Biden's campaign thought to tell the boss back in June that maybe he should drop the line, given how unbelievably stupid it is.

Joe Biden's Boosters Wrote His Prodigal Son's Entire Resume.  Hunter Biden profited from his father's political connections long before he struck questionable deals in countries where Joe Biden was undertaking diplomatic missions as vice president.  In fact, virtually all the jobs listed on his resume going back to his first position out of college, which paid a six-figure salary, came courtesy of the former six-term senator's donors, lobbyists and allies, a RealClearInvestigations examination has found.  One document reviewed by RCI reveals that a Biden associate admitted "finding employment" for Hunter Biden specifically as a special favor to his father, then a Senate leader running for president.  He secured a $1.2 million gig on Wall Street for his young son, even though it was understood he had no experience in high finance.  Many of his generous patrons, in turn, ended up with legislation and policies favorable to their businesses or investments, an RCI review of lobbying records and legislative actions taken by the elder Biden confirms.

At ABC Town Hall Joe Biden Says "Boilermakers Overwhelmingly Endorse Me" — But Boilermakers Endorse Trump.  Last night Joe Biden told George Stephanopoulos at his ABC town hall and love fest that the boilermakers support him.  Old Joe told this open lie to George Stephanopoulos who refused to correct him. [...] The boilermakers overwhelmingly support President Donald Trump who actually brought their jobs back to the Rust Belt.  Why would they support Joe Biden when they ALL know Joe Biden will ship their jobs and livelihood to China?  Like he did for 47 years!

Biden's ABC town hall questioners include former Obama speechwriter, wife of former Pennsylvania Dem candidate.  Two of the questioners at the ABC town hall featuring Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden on Thursday [10/15/2020] had ties to high-profile Democrats, including one questioner who previously worked as a speechwriter in the Obama administration.  The queries came as President Trump, hundreds of miles away, was engaging in his own parallel town hall being aired on NBC.  The ABC town hall was hosted by George Stephanopoulos, who was a communications director for the Bill Clinton White House and who has been a political journalist since 2002.  One of the questioners at the ABC-hosted event was Nathan Osburn, a former speechwriter for the Obama White House.  Osburn specifically worked for the Office of Public Affairs at the Commerce Department under the Obama-Biden administration and at the Small Business Administration.

Understanding What Foreign Governments are Purchasing From The Bidens — There are Trillions at Stake.  Amid the latest evidence that Hunter and Joe Biden are selling their ability to influence U.S. institutions to the benefit of foreign governments, I have received numerous requests to once again explain what those foreign interests are purchasing.  Understanding the purchase requires understanding the term "exfiltration" of wealth.  To understand the purchasing system, it becomes necessary to understand the underlying financial & economic constructs; the cornerstone of U.S. wealth. [...] President Trump is disrupting decades of multinational financial interests who use the U.S. as a host for their ideological & economic objectives.  President Trump is confronting multinational corporations and the global constructs of economic systems that were put in place, by DC politicians and billionaire elites, to the detriment of the USA; ie. YOU.  There are trillions at stake.  All else is chaff and countermeasures.

More NY Post:  Hunter e-mails show big paydays from China.  The same hard drive files that the New York Post claims came from Hunter Biden's hard drive not only show connections between Joe Biden and the Ukraine, but also more about Hunter's business in China.  The connections between the Biden family didn't end with that already-infamous ride-hitching on Air Force Two in 2013.  Starting in 2017, Hunter was cutting shady deals worth millions — at least according to the data uncovered by the Post.  All the same caveats apply to this story as yesterday's, of course, including the timing of the discovery of these files and especially the strange story of the laptop itself.  Skepticism should abound, but consider this a thought experiment.  Just how many stories based on the NYP's claim to have Hunter Biden's hard drive files can Twitter and Facebook spike?  Let's find out.

Uh-Oh: Biden Was GASSED an Hour Into His Town Hall.  During the bizarre scene of the dueling town hall events between Joe Biden and Donald Trump on Thursday night, several PJ Media columnists took on the task of live blogging what unfolded.  We all watched as a de facto debate unfolded in separate locations and with separate treatment for each candidate.  Trump got a consistent stream of hostile questions, and Biden faced a softball environment.  Even with about three times as many breaks, Biden showed significant signs of fatigue and a lack of focus toward the end, calling into question his capacity to handle the job of POTUS.

Hunter Biden Was Set to Earn Millions For "Making Introductions" for the Benefit of Chinese Intelligence Operatives\.  The NY Post keeps upping the stakes for Joe Biden — and Twitter and Facebook too.  But right now it looks like Twitter has learned its lesson, and the new Hunter Biden story out this morning seems to be bouncing around Twitter without restriction.  Today's story in the NY Post goes over business dealings between Hunter Biden and individuals in China, one of whom is said to have had connections to the Chinese military and intelligence services.  The Post has published an email — sent by Biden as part of an Aug. 2, 2017, chain — laying out the terms of a business deal with Ye Jianming, formerly the Chairman of CEFC (China Energy Fund Committee), at one time the largest "private" energy company in China.  The business deal involved Biden getting half-ownership of a holding company that Biden anticipated would generate income for him of more than $10 million a year.  His business partner, Ye Jinaming, has not been seen in more than two years.

Biden advisers cannot rule out meeting with Ukrainian energy executive.  Senior advisers to Joe Biden reportedly cannot rule out that the former vice president and Democratic White House hopeful met with a top Ukrainian energy executive, despite carefully-worded rebuttals from his campaign.  Michael Carpenter and Amos Hochstein, who worked for Biden when he was vice president in 2015, told Politico that they couldn't definitively state that their boss was never approached by Vadym Pozharskyi, an adviser to the board of Ukrainian energy company Burisma.  Biden's campaign also could not say whether the meeting happened or not.  Burisma formerly employed Biden's son, Hunter, in a lucrative board position.  Emails obtained by The [New York] Post from a hard drive that allegedly once belonged to Hunter indicate that he was thanked by Pozharskyi for introducing him to his dad in April 2015 — while the elder Biden was vice president.

Did the FBI Sit on a Computer Containing Evidence of Hunter Sex Tape and Biden Burisma Corruption?  One of the strangest details of the exclusive New York Post story involving the recovered data from a computer linked to Hunter Biden is the story of the laptop itself and what is alleged about it.  You can read about the evidence alleging that Hunter Biden was trading influence with foreign actors in Matt Margolis's piece here.  But what also interested me was the part of the NYP investigation where they claim there's a sex tape and pornographic photos starring Hunter on the laptop — and the FBI knew about it in December. [...] Let's forget for a moment that there's reportedly a video of Hunter Biden smoking crack and romping with hookers on the laptop.  That's par for the course, isn't it?  What about the part where the FBI had possession of this information back in December?  Why didn't the FBI come forward with this evidence about Hunter Biden's emails, which appear to show collusion and influence-trading?  Isn't that something they should have told the president or members of Congress?

The Gordian Knot Protecting Obamagate Secrets.  Donald Trump and Republicans are furious that U.S. Attorney John Durham has not brought indictments against senior people who spied on the president's campaign, lied repeatedly to judges in order to do it, and based their intrusions on specious evidence, which they knew to be false — and had been commissioned by the opposition political party.  We know the broad outlines of this coordinated operation, but we still don't know its full extent, all those involved, and what precise roles they played.  Attorney General William Barr promised major developments in this probe by late spring, then mid-summer, then Labor Day, and now sometime after the election.  If, as Republicans say (and the evidence seems to show), there was a systematic effort to weaponize federal law enforcement and intelligence agencies for political purposes, the public has a compelling right to know.  This need-to-know is urgent because the Democrats' presidential nominee, Joe Biden, served as the second-highest ranking member of the administration that conducted these acts.

Flashback: Joe Biden Insists Burisma Hired His Son Because He's a 'Bright Guy'.  Today's New York Post reports that an email on a found computer indicating Joe Biden met with Vadym Pozharskyi, an adviser to the board of Ukrainian energy company Burisma, while it employed his son. [...] Joe Biden believes his son was hired because he's a "bright guy," not because he was the vice president's son.  Biden's testy exchange with NBC News anchor Savannah Guthrie back in February has disappeared down the memory hole.  "Do you think it was wrong for him to take that position, knowing it was really because that company wanted access to you?" Guthrie asked.  "Well, that's not true!" Biden insisted.  "You are saying things — you do not know what you are talking about.  No one said that!  Who said that?  Who said that?"

Biden doesn't get one question on Hunter Biden exposé at ABC News town hall.  Joe Biden was not asked a single question about The Post's bombshell exposé on son Hunter Biden's overseas business dealings during his 90-minute ABC News town hall on Thursday evening.  Moderator George Stephanopoulos and undecided voters asked the Democratic nominee about everything from mandating a COVID-19 vaccine to how he'd handle a defeat on Nov. 3, but no one pressed Biden on newly unearthed emails which showed Hunter Biden selling access to his then-vice president dad.  It was Biden's first televised interview since The Post made public a tranche of documents from a laptop which allegedly belonged to Biden's oft-troubled son.  Among the emails on the hard drive was one which indicated Hunter Biden introduced his father to a top executive at a Ukrainian energy firm who was at the time under investigation before the elder Biden pressured government officials in Ukraine to fire that prosecutor a year later.

House Republicans Ask Director Wray if FBI Was in Possession of Hunter Biden's Laptop During Trump Impeachment and Hid Evidence from Trump Defense.  House Republicans on Thursday sent a letter to Director Chris Wray asking if the FBI was in possession of Hunter Biden's laptop during the impeachment coup of President Trump.  "If the FBI was, in fact, in possession of this evidence and failed to alert the White House to its existence that would have given even more weight to the president's legal defense, this was a gross error in judgement and a severe violation of trust," the letter says.

It's Going To Get Real:  OANN Reporter Chanel Rion Has Seen the Hunter Biden Video.  One America News Network reporter Chanel Rion tweeted out on Thursday that she has seen video of Hunter Biden that was on the computer that he left at a computer shop in 2019.  And, according to Rion, "Hunter makes Anthony Weiner's down under selfie addiction look normal."  That says a lot!  Considering Democrat star Anthony Weiner was hitting on young girls on social media.

Biden Muddles Through Gentle, Hunter-Free Town Hall.  Joe Biden came into Thursday night's town hall, which was originally supposed to be a debate, stung by new allegations of influence-peddling involving his son Hunter.  The question on everyone's mind going in was whether he would be allowed to answer any question harder than chocolate or tapioca? [...] What didn't come up was Hunter Biden.  What didn't come up was credible claims from the New York Post, the oldest daily newspaper in America, showing that the former vice president met with a Ukrainian businessman connected to his son.  The biggest story in America right now was just ignored.  That tells us pretty much everything.

Behind the social-media blackout of Biden family corruption.  Hunter Biden is now the subject of multiple stories involving serious corruption.  Whether he committed any crimes is a question for prosecutors and the courts.  Whether he was paid handsomely for his family's political clout is a question for voters.  You wouldn't know that from ABC's pathetic town hall with his father Joe Biden on Thursday night [10/25/2020].  They spoke with him for 90 minutes and didn't ask a single question about the shocking emails published by the New York Post.  That's either journalistic malpractice or public-relations work.  After all, the emails raise profound questions that the candidate needs to answer.  They appear to show his son, Hunter, repeatedly using his last name to fill his pockets.  Hunter's family is his only asset.  How else did someone with no special skills manage to collect such huge payments from foreign companies with deep interests in US policy?  He has no knowledge of Ukraine or China, no experience in energy or banking, and a crack pipe full of personal problems.  So, how exactly did he get rich?

Can the Democrats Sell Their Worst Candidate Ever?  Even before anyone ever heard of Hunter Biden's laptop, Democrats were facing a marketing challenge unknown in the era of moving images: selling a candidate that no one — with the possible exception of Jill "Edith Wilson" Biden — could possibly be enthused about.  By any standard, especially by progressive Democratic standards, Joe Biden is a flaming mess.  No Democrat of any age will have ever pulled the lever for a less attractive candidate.  Compared to Joe, Hillary Clinton was JFK.  Hillary actually had fans.  Democratic leaders and their increasingly Pravda-like media allies know what a mess Biden is.  In 2019, before he emerged as the candidate, they openly shared their misgivings.  In early June 2019, for instance, both the New York Times and the Washington Post produced video hit pieces highlighting Biden's problematic history.

Hunter Biden [was] Offered $10 Million Annually by Chinese Energy Firm for 'Introductions Alone,' Email Shows.  Hunter Biden entered into a consulting contract with China's largest private energy company that initially earned him $10 million a year "for introductions alone," according to leaked emails.  In an email chain from Aug. 2, 2017, Biden discussed a deal with the former chairman of CEFC China Energy, Ye Jianming, saying Ye agreed to change the terms of Biden's three-year consulting contract with CEFC, which initially promised Biden $10 million per-year "for introductions alone," to make it "much more lasting and more lucrative," the New York Post reported, although the authenticity of the Biden emails has not been independently confirmed.

The Hunter Emails.  According to a 2015 email, then-vice president Joe Biden met with a top executive at Burisma, the Ukrainian energy firm that paid Biden's son, Hunter, $50,000 a month to sit on its board.  Earlier, the Burisma executive had asked Hunter to use his influence to quell Ukrainian government officials who were trying to extort the company.  Months later, Vice President Biden coerced the Ukrainian government into firing a prosecutor who says he was gearing up an investigation of Burisma.  The evidence that Vice President Biden gave access to the company that was paying his son is disputed.  It comes from emails stored on the hard drive of a laptop computer that appears to be Hunter Biden's.  The emails were disclosed in a report by the New York Post. [...] Remarkably, with less than three weeks to go before the presidential election pitting Vice President Biden against President Trump, and with Americans already casting their ballots, the mainstream media, along with Facebook and Twitter, are suppressing the Post's report.

Media risks malpractice by dismissing alleged anti-Biden bombshell.  The New York Post story alleging additional nefarious doings among the Biden family and Ukrainian entities put nearly as great an onus on the establishment media as it does on the Bidens.  Yes, let's stipulate that the involvement of President Trump's political henchman Rudy Giuliani in the provenance of the Post's story makes the anti-Biden report immediately suspect.  Still, the simple reality is that there's ample reason, both internal to the alleged emails in question and regarding other things we know about the Bidens' practices, that make the story plausible.  Because of that plausibility, every major media outlet in the country should now rush to follow up on the story with neutral, open minds and no agenda pro or con, so as to shed more light on its level of accuracy.  The actions of leftist social-media giants Facebook and Twitter to spike the story make it more imperative that real news outlets do even more reporting for the public's benefit.

The New Yorker's Hunter Biden Whitewash Looks Awful In Retrospect.  [Scroll down]  For the next 15 months, Joe Biden would repeatedly deny that he spoke about business with his son as more revelations surrounding the questionable arrangement would surface over the course of the campaign.  "I have never discussed, with my son or my brother or with anyone else, anything having to do with their businesses.  Period," Biden said in August last year.  On Wednesday [10/14/2020] however, the bombshell story from the New York Post would show that was not true.  According to emails obtained by the paper, Hunter Biden had in fact introduced a top advisor for Burisma to Joe Biden.  While the Biden campaign initially denied any such meeting took place, Politico later reported Wednesday night that the campaign "would not rule out the possibility that the former VP had some kind of interaction," with his son's Ukrainian business associate.

American Princelings.  Mainstream media have mostly ignored or dismissed as "old claims" the interim Senate report into Hunter Biden's shady business dealings in Ukraine, but the most explosive content in the report may be his engagement with China.  The report details how the Democratic presidential nominee's son has "extensive connections to Chinese businesses and Chinese foreign nationals that are linked to the Communist government." [...] Why would China's largest state-owned bank — whose mandate is to support the Chinese government's strategic goals with capital — want to start a business with a relatively small and unknown American private equity fund?  The obvious answer is to buy influence in the United States through the children of two of the most prominent officials in the Obama administration.

Emails reveal how Hunter Biden tried to cash in big with Chinese firm.  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 [New York] 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.

Members of Biden Clan [were] Expected to Give Half of Their Earnings to 'Pop,' Hunter Biden Text Reveals.  Members of the Biden family allegedly had a specific system for distributing the money they earned through influence peddling, President Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani revealed on Wednesday [10/14/2020].  According to a smoking gun text on Hunter Biden's hard drive, members of "the Biden crime family" were expected to give half of their profits to "pop" — aka Joe Biden.  Several members of the Biden's clan, including his brother James Biden, his sister-in-law Sara, and his son Hunter, landed lucrative positions or contracts with foreign countries while Joe Biden was a U.S. senator as well as when he served as vice president.  "In future days, you will see texts, emails and photos that demonstrate crimes committed by the Biden crime family in China (probably most of all), in Russia, and several other countries," Giuliani said, noting that America's foreign adversaries likely have the same scandalous photos of the former crack addict that he's seen — making the election of Joe Biden a massive national security risk.

Lies And Electioneering:  Biden Campaign Says Twitter's Reaction to NY Post Hunter Biden Bombshells Proves It's "False and Not True".  The New York Post dropped its second major report on Hunter Biden's emails on Tuesday.  The Hunter Biden emails reveal how Hunter Biden worked to cash in big on China and to withhold money for his dad!  Joe Biden was IN ON IT! [...] In response to these devastating reports Twitter has censored and banned several Trump accounts including White House spokesperson Kayleign McEnany and the Team Trump account. [...] The Biden Campaign is using Twitter's censorship as "proof" that the email reports from Hunter Biden's campaign are "false and are not true."  Twitter and the Biden Campaign are working together, along with the mainstream media, to lie to the American public and hide the truth from voters.

Computer Repairman Shares Why He Gave Laptop With Hunter Biden's Emails to the FBI.  The Delaware computer repair shop owner who turned over the Apple Macbook Pro containing Hunter Biden's emails, photos and (according to Rudy Giuliani) a sex tape featuring Hunter Biden and another woman has come out to the public in an interview with Fox News.  John Paul Mac Isaac told Fox News that he is legally blind, and therefore he "can't be 100% sure" that the individual who dropped off the laptop was Hunter Biden.  But when he was backing up the hard drive, he stumbled upon "disturbing" images, including "pornography", that freaked him out.  Apparently, although Isaac's blindness prevented him from positively ID-ing Hunter Biden, it didn't stop him from viewing the contents of the hard drive.  Although it was only April 2019 at this point, Joe Biden was already considered the front-runner for the Democratic nomination.  Isaac quickly became frightened, and started to worry about shadowy figures "coming back" for the laptop.  To be sure, Fox News reported that whether Hunter Biden was indeed the owner of the laptop "has yet to be substantiated".

Twitter Cites 'Hacked Info' Policy to Defend Censorship of New York Post Biden Bombshell.  A spokesperson for Twitter defended the company's decision to censor a bombshell story from the New York Post about Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and his son Hunter.  The company is citing its policy on "hacked materials" as the reason why it decided to limit its users' ability to share the story, but it is not clear that any hacking was involved in procuring the trove of emails at all.  Twitter came under intense fire on Wednesday [10/14/2020] when it censored a story from the New York Post about Joe Biden and his son, Hunter.  Twitter is claiming that the decision to blacklist the story of their platform was justified by a company policy against sharing information obtained by hacking.

The Editor says...
[#1] Just because information was obtained through "hacking" doesn't mean it isn't true.  [#2] The information in this case was not obtained through hacking.  It came from a copy of a hard drive in a laptop once owned by Hunter Biden, as I understand it.  When young Mr. Biden failed to come and get his computer, after dropping it off for repairs and/or data recovery, and failed to pay for the computer work, the laptop presumably became the property of that technician.  That's the way I see it.  Prove me wrong.  [#3] If you put your computer into someone else's hands for data recovery, don't be surprised if data is recovered.  If you have embarrassing pictures of yourself (or other potentially damaging information) on your laptop, and the computer crashes, you can either fix it yourself or take the hard drive out and throw it in a deep and remote body of water.  [#4] For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known.*

Hunter Biden Emails:  Was he cashing-in on Joe Biden's official post?  In an exclusive reporting from New York Post, a trove of Hunter Biden's emails suggest that he was allegedly leveraging his father's position to negotiate higher pay for his services to Burisma.  In a lengthy memo to his then-business partner, Devon Archer, who already sat on the Burisma board, Biden repeatedly mentioned "my guy" while apparently referring to then-Vice President Joe Biden, New York Post reports.

Emails: Hunter Biden's Burisma contact met with Joe Biden.  Contrary to Joe Biden's claims, the former vice president was introduced by his son Hunter Biden to a top executive of the Ukrainian energy firm Burisma one year before the the elder Biden pressured Ukraine officials to fire a prosecutor who was investigating the company, according to emails obtained by the New York Post.  Biden has insisted he has "never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings."  But Vadym Pozharskyi, an adviser to the board of Burisma, allegedly sent an email to Hunter Biden on April 17, 2015, about one year after Hunter joined the company's board for a 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," Pozharskyi wrote.  "It's realty [sic] an honor and pleasure."

Email:  Hunter Biden saw China deal as lucrative for 'my family'.  Among the lucrative business deals Hunter Biden pursued in China while his father was vice president was one he said would benefit not only him but his family, according to emails obtained from a laptop seized by the FBI.  The existence of the emails, which were made known to the FBI by a Delaware computer repair shop owner, was reported Wednesday by the New York Post.  The Post's initial report featured an email that contradicts Joe Biden's claim that he never discussed his son's business deals in Ukraine and China while serving as the pointman for U.S. policy in those nations under President Obama.  Facebook immediately restricted distribution of the Post's initial story on Wednesday, insisting it needed time to fact-check it, and Twitter followed by blocking any links to it.

Giuliani Reveals Texts Allegedly From Hunter Biden Saying 'Dad' Got Half of His Contracts.  After the New York Post published a story on Hunter Biden's dealings with Burisma today from information found on a hard drive that allegedly belonged to the former vice president's son, Rudy Giuliani took to YouTube to lay out the case for a new accusation:  That Joe Biden was receiving half of Hunter's contracts.  Guiliani presents a text message, allegedly from Hunter Biden to Naomi Biden, his daughter.  In the text, Hunter says that he has been paying for everything for 30 years and it has been tough, but that he won't take 50% of her salary as "Pop" did.

Biden Team Is Now Furiously Backpedaling Over NY Post Story About Hunter's Emails.  Twitter and Facebook are getting blasted today because of trying to suppress the NY Post story about Hunter Biden's emails.  Twitter not only blocked the NY Post from spreading their own story, they've even locked out people like the White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany for sharing the story.

If Biden wins, who will govern?  Three decades ago, people cared when Biden lied.  Now nobody cares.  It's hard to oppose, let alone revile, a man who no longer seems to have any idea of what he is saying.  Biden lost contact with reality years ago; maybe we did too.  On Monday, he forgot the name of Mitt Romney, the Republican presidential nominee in 2012 — 'the senator who was a Mormon, the governor, OK?' Later he declared, for the second time this year, that he was a 'proud Democrat running for the Senate'.  Pssst, Joe, it's the presidency you're after — the Senate was in 1973.  Biden makes similar or worse gaffes almost every day on the campaign trail.  Never mind — he's still going to be the 46th President of the United States, unless those polls are wildly wrong again.

Cruz Blasts Twitter, Facebook For Censoring Story Linking Joe Biden to Burisma.  Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) wrote to the CEOs of Facebook and Twitter on Wednesday, asking why their platforms had chosen to censor a New York Post story reflecting Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden in a poor light, calling the move an "obvious and transparent attempt" to influence the forthcoming election.  Twitter "shouldn't act as Biden's PR team," Cruz tweeted earlier in the day.  Cruz in his letters to the tech giants contrasted the way the social media platforms have treated "less well-sourced" reporting critical of other candidates — citing in Facebook's case a 2017 Buzzfeed report on the so-called "Steele dossier" and New York Times reports on President Trump's tax returns.  "This rush to limit the dissemination and reach of a report — containing information of high public interest and consequence — and the contrast with how similarly situated material on other candidates has been handled, strongly suggests that the true motivation is to influence the upcoming presidential election," he wrote to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg.

Trump Demands Biden 'Immediately Release' All Docs on His Family's International Business Deals.  President Donald Trump demanded full transparency from Democratic nominee Joe Biden regarding his family's international business dealings, specifically regarding China and Russia.  As Trump noted, Biden's family members appear to have raked in cash while peddling influence.  Biden's son Hunter is a notorious offender, but other family members have also reportedly traded on the family name.  While Hunter's business deals in Ukraine and China have been an issue throughout the campaign, a New York Post story drew fresh attention to them on Wednesday.  Facebook and Twitter drew even more attention to the story by suppressing it.  Trump brought up the issue during a campaign rally in Iowa.

Hunter Biden tried to cash in big with Chinese firm, emails suggest.  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 [New York] 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."

Emails:  Hunter Biden tried to cash in big with the Chinese Communist Party.  New emails obtained and published today [10/15/2020] by The New York Post reveal that #BeijingBiden's 25-hours of private meetings with dictator Xi Jinping may have been just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the Biden crime family's China ties.  Per today's release, Hunter Biden was actively working on behalf of other family members to exploit access in order to cash in from at least one firm tied to our existential enemy, the Chinese Communist Party.

The Explosive Hunter Biden Emails Silicon Valley Doesn't Want You To See.  Today [10/14/2020], the New York Post dropped a bombshell on the Left with the release of a 'smoking-gun' email revealing that then-Vice President Joe Biden was not only aware of his drug-addicted son Hunter's shady dealings in Ukraine, but also that he had met with one of his associates there, Vadym Pozharskyi — an adviser to the board of Burisma, which was paying Hunter more than a half-million dollars for access. [...] The emails are available for you to view here in the event that they are removed elsewhere:  [Exhibit]

Notice [the] Biden campaign [is] not denying Post's scoop facts on Hunter Biden's sleaze.  Notice that Joe Biden and his campaign aren't disputing the basic facts The [New York] Post has uncovered about Hunter Biden's cashing in on his dad's high office.  The ex-veep called "a lid" for the day at 9:41 a.m.  Wednesday [10/14/2020], indicating he'd make no more appearances.  So reporters couldn't push him about his past claims that he'd "never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings" now that data from an old hard drive suggest that's not so.  E-mails reveal that Hunter introduced a top executive of Burisma, the Ukrainian natural gas firm on whose board he sat, to his dad while Joe was in the White House — and less than a year before the veep pushed the Ukrainian government into firing a prosecutor who was investigating Burisma.

Hunter Biden Was Set to Earn Millions For "Making Introductions" for the Benefit of Chinese Intelligence Operatives.  The NY Post keeps upping the stakes for Joe Biden — and Twitter and Facebook too.  But right now it looks like Twitter has learned its lesson, and the new Hunter Biden story out this morning [10/15/2020] seems to be bouncing around Twitter without restriction.  Today's story in the NY Post goes over business dealings between Hunter Biden and individuals in China, one of whom is said to have had connections to the Chinese military and intelligence services.  The Post has published an email — sent by Biden as part of an Aug. 2, 2017, chain — laying out the terms of a business deal with Ye Jianming, formerly the Chairman of CEFC (China Energy Fund Committee), at one time the largest "private" energy company in China.  The business deal involved Biden getting half-ownership of a holding company that Biden anticipated would generate income for him of more than $10 million a year.  His business partner, Ye Jinaming, has not been seen in more than two years.

Tucker Carlson Hits a Home Run Describing Censorship and Biden Emails:  "This is a dark moment".  Tucker Carlson described Hunter and Joe Biden's dealings tonight [10/14/2020] in a brutally honest monologue.  Carlson began by describing the censorship of social media monopolies trying to keep the truth from the American people about what Joe and Hunter Biden were doing to make big money.  Influence peddling seems to be the main focus with the Bidens, who are accused of selling access to the former VP.  The monologue described the Computer Repair Shop owner who came to find the emails and photos on a laptop brought in for repair but never claimed.  The description Carlson gives of the corruption should be devastating but CNN reported zero minutes about the emails tonight.  Our media is actively protecting Joe Biden right before an election.

Joe Biden denies meeting his son's Ukrainian business partner despite 'thank you for opportunity to meet your father' email found on laptop.  Joe Biden's presidential campaign on Wednesday [10/14/2020] dismissed an explosive story about Hunter Biden after emails purported to come from Hunter's laptop appeared to show Hunter making an introduction between his powerful father and a Ukrainian energy firm.  A trove of emails obtained from Hunter's laptop and revealed by Donald Trump's attorney Rudy Giuliani showed Hunter making an effort to introduce his father to an adviser at his Ukrainian gas firm before the then-vice president lobbied for the firing of a prosecutor who had investigated the company.  Burisma adviser Vadym Pozharskyi thanked Hunter Biden for 'an opportunity to meet your father' in an email sent in 2015, according to the stash of data given to the New York Post by Giuliani.

Joe Biden Lied — Emails Show Hunter Biden and Joe Biden Met Together With Ukraine Energy Executives.  Former Vice President Joe Biden previously said he did not have anything to do with Hunter Biden's sketchy dealings with Ukraine energy company Burisma.  Today [10/14/2020] the New York Post has released specific documents showing that claim was absolutely false. [...] The emails come from a laptop computer reportedly dropped off for repair in Delaware that was never picked up.  The Delaware FBI took custody of the computer and it was eventually turned over to the U.S. Attorney Office in Delaware in December of 2019.  However, there was a duplicate of the hard-drive made by the repair shop owner.

The Editor says...
Without that duplicate copy, this information would never have been revealed to the public.

Trump campaign uses Post exposé to blast Bidens for 'blatant selling of access'.  President Trump's re-election campaign on Wednesday accused Hunter Biden of "blatant selling of access" to his father, then-Vice President Joe Biden, in the wake of a bombshell cache of documents about the family's foreign dealings exposed by The [New york] Post.  "The way that this entire operation is set up to make money off of Joe Biden for decades has been ignored for far too long," Trump 2020 senior adviser Jason Miller said during a call with reporters, labeling the influential family "Biden Inc" and calling for greater scrutiny of their business dealings.  A 2015 email obtained by The Post reveals that Hunter Biden introduced his father to Vadym Pozharskyi, an adviser to the board of Ukrainian energy company Burisma, while Hunter served on its board and earned a reported salary of up to $50,000 a month.

Hunter Biden's Smoking Guns.  [Scroll down]  Good job by Emma-Jo Morris and Gabrielle Fonrouge of reporting on the story for the New York Post.  Absolutely no one is surprised that Joe Biden lied about this contact when asked.  Now we just have proof of it.  You wouldn't think a story that merely confirms what people already knew about Biden's lies would have been the tripwire for Internet media giants to abandon even the pretense of objectivity, but you'd be wrong.

Biden campaign responds to NY Post report, says alleged meeting with Burisma executive never took place.  Joe Biden's presidential campaign said Wednesday [10/14/2020] that the former vice president did not meet with his son, Hunter Biden, and a top executive of the Ukrainian gas company Burisma in 2015 as alleged in a report by the New York Post.  The Post published a copy of an email on Wednesday that was allegedly sent by Vadym Pozharsky, an advisor to Burisma's board of directors, to Hunter Biden in April 2015 thanking the younger Biden "for inviting me to DC and giving an opportunity to meet your father and spent some time together."  The email was part of what the Post called a "massive trove of data recovered from a laptop computer" that was dropped off at a Delaware computer repair shop in April 2019.  "[W]e have reviewed Joe Biden's official schedules from the time and no meeting, as alleged by the New York Post, ever took place," Biden campaign spokesman Andrew Bates told Politico.

Why did Biden Meet with Soros the Day Before the Burisma Email to Hunter?  The Biden campaign issued an incredibly weak response today after a bombshell New York Post story revealed a Ukrainian official emailed Hunter Biden in 2015 thanking him for allowing him to meet with his father, who was then-sitting Vice President.  Biden spokesman Andrew Bates told Politico that they reviewed the Vice President's official schedules from the time of the meeting and "no meeting, as alleged by the New York Post, ever took place."  So, the campaign's only defense is that it wasn't on the Vice President's official schedule so that means it didn't happen?

Trump voter reveals he is the Mac repairer with Biden's secrets-but CAN'T say if he went to FBI or they came to him.  The computer shop owner who provided Hunter Biden's laptop to the FBI and Rudy Giulilani is a 44-year-old Trump voter, it emerged Wednesday [10/14/2020], hours after pictures and emails from it sent shockwaves through Washington.  John Paul MacIsaac confirmed that he had handed the laptop to the FBI late last year, claiming to the Daily Beast that he was 'just a guy who had something he wanted [taken] out of this shop,' after realizing he had the Democratic candidate's sons pictures and emails.  The younger Biden left three damaged Apple laptops at MacIsaac's shop in Wilmington, DE, in April 2019 but never returned or paid the $85 bill for recovering the data from them.

Jack Dorsey apologizes after Trump threatened to remove Facebook and Twitter protections.  Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey apologized on Wednesday night after the social media giant faced backlash over its decision to block links to a story which claims Joe Biden met with a Ukrainian businessman while he was Vice President, but he has still not lifted restrictions on it.  It came just an hour after President Donald Trump threatened to remove the US legal protections that exempts the likes of Twitter and Facebook from liability for the material users post on their networks.  Trump called for the law, known as Section 230, to be repealed as he blasted the social media giants as 'terrible' for 'reducing circulation' of a New York Post article which published the claims about his rival Biden earlier in the day.

Biden campaign says Burisma meeting not on 'official schedule'.  Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden's campaign said Wednesday [10/14/2020] in a carefully worded statement there were no meetings on his "official schedules" in 2015 with Burisma board adviser Vadym Pozharskyi.  The response to The Post's expose Wednesday about a meeting described in an alleged email on his son Hunter Biden's laptop does not mention personal calendars or dispute that the get-together actually happened.  Later in the day, the campaign — along with advisors to Biden when he was VP — admitted to Politico is was possible the two met back then, but claimed it would have been merely in passing.  Biden has not directly responded to the reporting, which appears to debunk his prior claim that he had "never spoken" with his son about his "overseas business dealing."

President Trump Rakes Facebook and Twitter Over the Coals for Censoring Hunter Biden Story.  On Wednesday [10/14/2020], The New York Post published a blockbuster story about a "smoking gun" email allegedly proving that then-Vice President Joe Biden's son Hunter introduced the VP to an executive at the notoriously corrupt Ukrainian gas company Burisma — before Joe Biden pressured the Ukrainian president to fire a prosecutor looking into Burisma.  Facebook announced that it was reducing the article's distribution, even before any fact-check.  Twitter also apparently prevented an editor at the Post from tweeting the article.

Trump slams censorship of The Post in first comment on Hunter Biden exposé.  President Trump on Wednesday slammed the "terrible" censorship of The Post's bombshell exposé on Hunter Biden's hard drive and an alleged email linking Joe Biden to his son's job at a Ukrainian energy company.  "So terrible that Facebook and Twitter took down the story of 'Smoking Gun' emails related to Sleepy Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, in the @NYPost," Trump tweeted from Air Force One en route to a campaign rally in Iowa.  "It is only the beginning for them.  There is nothing worse than a corrupt politician.  REPEAL SECTION 230!!!["]  Twitter blocked users from sharing The Post's link to the story, which describes an alleged 2015 email from Burisma energy executive Vadym Pozharskyi thanking Hunter Biden for "giving an opportunity to meet your father."

Inside the life of Hunter Biden, Joe Biden's scandal-plagued son.  Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's son Hunter has been back in the news since his father announced his 2020 run last year.  Hunter Biden made headlines again on Oct. 14 when The [New York] Post exclusively reported on emails between him and Vadym Pozharskyi, an adviser to the board at Ukrainian energy firm Burisma Holdings.  The emails reveal the possibility of a previously unreported meeting between the elder Biden and an official from Burisma, any involvement with which the Democratic presidential nominee has adamantly denied without going into detail.

Donald Trump: 'The Bidens Got Rich While Americans Got Robbed'.  President Donald Trump reacted Wednesday at a campaign rally in Des Moines, Iowa, to new evidence showing that former Vice President Joe Biden met with foreign interests represented by his son Hunter Biden.  "The Bidens got rich while Americans got robbed," Trump said at a campaign rally in Des Moines, Iowa.  The president cited the bombshell New York Post story uncovering emails sent from Vadym Pozharskyi, an adviser to Ukrainian energy company Burisma, to Hunter Biden, thanking him for helping arrange a meeting with his father.  Hunter Biden received between $50,000 and $83,000 a month from Burisma to sit on the board.

President Trump:  Bidens are 'grifters,' 'crooks'.  President Trump called out the Bidens after bombshell emails revealed Hunter had arranged business deals between Ukrainian officials and his father, then-Vice President Joe Biden.  On Wednesday [10/14/2020], the President voiced disgust regarding the reported misconduct of Hunter Biden.  He called the Bidens "crooks" and applauded The New York Post for their reporting.  The newspaper revealed Hunter Biden had set up meetings with his father and officials from the Ukrainian energy firm Hunter had worked for at the time, Burisma Holdings.

The Anti-Constitution of Joe Biden.  To the extent that Biden has a judicial philosophy, it is that judges should ignore, not uphold, the Constitution whenever it conflicts with liberalism's goals.  Biden's "living Constitution" is an anti-Constitution — a blank piece of paper on which liberal jurists can write the exact opposite of what the founders intended.  Biden has said his ideal judge is one who invents rights out of thin air.  The more unstated rights he finds in the Constitution, the better.  Biden has offered up this gibberish in defense of that view: [...]

Hunter Biden and the Big Tech information coup.  There is nothing to see.  In 2014, Hunter Biden joined the board of the Ukrainian energy company Burisma on a reported salary of $50,000 a month.  Hunter knows nothing about the energy business, and he doesn't seem to speak Ukrainian.  'I have never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings,' Joe Biden said in 2019, though he had been photographed playing golf in the Hamptons with Hunter and another Burisma board member, Devon Archer, in 2014.  But there is nothing to see.  On Wednesday, the New York Post published an email from Vadim Pozharskyi, an adviser to the Burisma board, from April 2015.  Pozharskyi thanks Hunter for 'inviting me to DC and giving an opportunity to meet your father and spend some time together'.  But there is nothing to see. [...] There is nothing to see because Facebook doesn't want you to see it and Twitter won't let you share it.

Joe Biden calls early 'lid' for reporters amid The Post's Hunter Biden exposé.  Amid a bombshell report by The [New York] Post that Hunter Biden introduced his dad to an executive at Ukraine's Burisma energy company less than a year before then-Vice President Joe Biden pressured government officials in Ukraine into firing a prosecutor whose office investigated the company, Team Biden called a "lid" for reporters before 10 a.m.  "The Biden campaign has called a lid for in-person events," wrote Biden press pool reporter Sabrina Siddiqui of the Wall Street Journal, indicating that the candidate would not be making any public appearances or fielding questions Wednesday [10/14/2020].  The Democratic presidential candidate — huddled in his Wilmington, Del., home — has not directly responded to The Post's reporting, including on a document that appears to debunk his prior claim that he had "never spoken" with his son about his "overseas business dealing," including a reported $83,000 monthly job on the board of Burisma.

Twitter warns users that Hunter Biden story in New York Post may be 'unsafe'.  Twitter users who click on a link to a New York Post story involving Democratic presidential nominee Joseph R. Biden's son, Hunter Biden, were redirected on Wednesday to a webpage labeling the hyperlink of the Post's story as "unsafe."  "Warning: this link may be unsafe," reads the message from Twitter.  "The link you are trying to access has been identified by Twitter or our partners as being potentially spammy or unsafe, in accordance with Twitter's URL Policy."  Content that violates Twitter's URL policy includes, "violent or misleading content that could lead to real-world harm," spammy links that mislead users, malicious links that could harm devices or steal information, and other categories of content that may violate other Twitter rules.

This New Biden Ad For Black Voters Would Be Called Patronizing & Racist If Trump Released It.  There is often reason to cringe when white politicians make clumsy attempts at minority outreach.  But rarely has the cringe been taken to this level.  A new ad from the Biden campaign, titled "Ultimate Rap League GOTV Battle Rap," begins with two black men meeting on a basketball court in the inner city before launching into a political debate in the form of freestyle battle raps.  The lyrics aren't great but that's no knock on the rappers.  It can't be easy to turn Joe Biden's policy proposals into compelling rap lyrics.  Joe Biden's policy proposals don't even make for compelling policy proposals.

Facebook reducing distribution of Hunter Biden story in New York Post.  Facebook is limiting the distribution of a story in the New York Post about a purported email between Hunter Biden and an adviser to a Ukrainian energy company.  The 2015 email indicates that Vadym Pozharskyi, an adviser to Burisma, thanked Biden for "giving an opportunity" to meet former Vice President Joe Biden.  The former vice president has previously said he has "never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings."  Facebook said it would rely on its fact-checking partners to determine the story's legitimacy, but until then, it is taking steps to tamp down on its spread.

Joe Biden's alleged links to Burisma 'as damaging as can be,' Giuliani says.  President Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani slammed Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden on Wednesday in the wake of bombshell emails leaked by the New York Post, calling the revelation "as damaging as can be."  Giuliani, the former New York City mayor and U.S. Attorney General for the Southern District of New York, told FOX Business' Stuart Varney on Wednesday morning [10/14/2020] that the leaked documents were a smoking gun "for sure."  "Remember, Biden denied knowing anything about Burisma.  Biden denied — numerous times — knowing anything about his, uh, his son's foreign dealings," Giuliani said.  "That says very clearly that Biden met with the ... I think he's now the [number] two or three guy in the most crooked company in Ukraine."

Senate Panel Investigating Hunter Biden Emails Showing Introduction Between Joe Biden, Burisma Adviser.  The Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee is looking into emails that show Hunter Biden introduced his father, former Vice President Joe Biden, to a Ukrainian adviser to Burisma Holdings in 2015.  According to a Fox News report, Committee Chairman Ron Johnson (R., Wis.) said the committee has been in contact with the person who provided the emails, which first appeared in a New York Post report on Wednesday [10/14/2020].  The committee is working to verify the information, Johnson said.  According to the report, Joe Biden met with Burisma adviser Vadym Pozharskyi, in April 2015 in Washington D.C., at the request of his son, Hunter Biden, who was on the board of the Ukrainian natural gas company from 2014 to 2019 while his father headed the Obama administration's Ukraine policy.

Don't be fooled:  Biden did not say he won't pack the Court.  The headlines in today's news all said something along the lines of "Biden says he's not a fan of court-packing."  The implication was clear: all those conservatives saying a Biden and Harris administration will destroy America as we know it by turning the Supreme Court into an unelected Democrat super-legislature need to stand down.  It's not going to happen.  However, if you pay careful attention to what Biden said, he didn't condemn actual court-packing at all.  He either used Orwellian words to condemn a conservative justice joining the Supreme Court or gave a weak opinion, not a statement of intent.  I've been one of many conservative writers warning that, if the White House and Senate go to the Democrats, court-packing — that is, increasing the number of justices on the Supreme Court — is guaranteed.  That change to the Court will have terrible consequences for America.

Obama conference call leaked to Burisma:  Biden emails.  The Obama administration let a Democratic p.r. company that worked for Ukrainian energy firm Burisma take part in a conference call about an upcoming visit to Ukraine by then-Vice President Joe Biden, emails obtained by The [New York] Post show.  An associate at Blue Star Strategies then emailed a memo with minutes of the conference call hosted by the White House to a top Burisma executive, Vadym Pozharskyi, as well as to Joe Biden's son Hunter and Hunter's business partner, Devon Archer, both of whom sat on Burisma's board.  The trip, in December 2015, turned out to be the one during which Biden later bragged about forcing Ukrainian officials to fire a state prosecutor who was investigating Burisma by threatening to withhold a $1 billion US loan guarantee.

So Joe Biden lied to us all along about knowing nothing of Hunter's influence-peddling.  Joe Biden's corrupt, debauched, coke-addled son Hunter has been found to have sold access to his dad's office for tens of thousands of dollars.  That's the obvious conclusion from a trove of emails with his name on them, showing him driving a hard bargain his his pay to play game, making sure he got paid up front.  And Vice President Joe Biden, who's now running for president?  He's been caught red handed, lying to us about not knowing a thing.  Because sure enough an abandoned computer has turned up, according to the New York Post, loaded with Hunter's emails, showing him promising to give corrupt Ukrainian oligarchs access to Joe for a price.

Rudy Giuliani promises 'much more to come' from Hunter Biden's laptop.  President Donald Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani promised 'much more to come' from Hunter Biden's laptop.  Meanwhile, Democrats have already tossed cold water on the New York Post's story that details contents from a laptop allegedly belonging to Democratic nominee Joe Biden's son, which contains messages about Hunter Biden's Ukrainian business deals and photos of the 50-year-old smoking and doing drugs.  'When evaluating any information provided to anyone by Rudy Giuliani, just remember he's been parading around with a Russian secret agent for the last year, taking everything he says at face value,' tweeted Sen. Chris Murphy, a Democrat from Connecticut.

Joe Biden Calls a Lid and Hides in His Basement After Explosive Revelations From Hunter Biden's Recovered Hard Drive.  Joe Biden called a lid at 9:41 Wednesday morning [10/14/2020] and shut down for the day after Rudy Giuliani and Steve Bannon dropped an October surprise on his campaign!  Less than three weeks until the election and Joe Biden has called a lid in order to avoid any questions about the new smoking gun emails released!

CIA Whistleblower Says He Has Documents Proving Obama/Biden Paid Off Iran To Cover Up The Killing Of Seal Team 6.  Full interview of a CIA Whistleblower, Allan Harrow Parrot interviewed by Charles Woods and Nicholas Noe, surfaced Sunday, where the three talk about the blackmail /extortion of 152 Billion US dollars sent to Iran to cover up the deaths of seal team 6 by the Obama/Biden administration.  Parrot has extensive experience with the intelligence community, and he is planning on releasing documents this week on what he said are going to uncover "numerous crimes sprees".  "A heavy price has been paid for what we are uncovering, and millions of people want to see," Parrot said.  [Video clip]

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 emails obtained by The [New York] 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 email reads.  An earlier email 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.

Hunter Biden emails show leveraging connections with his father to boost Burisma pay.  Hunter Biden discussed leveraging his connection to his father in a bid to boost his pay from a Ukrainian natural gas company, according to an email he sent around the time he joined the firm's corporate board.  In a lengthy memo to his then-business partner, Devon Archer, who already sat on the Burisma board, Biden repeatedly mentioned "my guy" while apparently referring to then-Vice President Joe Biden.  Under President Barack Obama, the elder Biden was the point person for US policy toward Ukraine, and he held a press conference there with Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk on April 22, 2014.  Hunter Biden's email to Archer is dated a little more than a week earlier.

'Smoking Gun Email' Shows Joe Biden Did Meet with Son Hunter's Ukraine Partners.  A "smoking gun email" obtained by the New York Post shows Joe Biden lied when he said he's "never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings."  According to an email dated April 17, 2015, Biden, who was then the sitting vice president, met in person with Vadym Pozharskyi, an adviser to the board of Burisma.  Bursima is the sketchy Ukrainian energy company that put Hunter Biden on its board and paid him a reported $50,000 a month — a month! — even though Hunter has no known energy sector experience and doesn't speak any of the languages spoken in that country.  The date of the email is important.  The meeting between Pozharskyi and the then-vice president would have taken place eight months before Biden threatened to withhold U.S. aid from Ukraine unless the country agreed to fire a prosecutor who was looking into Burisma.  The prosecutor was fired.

Biden's Son-In-Law Advising Campaign On Pandemic While Investing In Companies That Will Benefit From It.  In what should be an obvious conflict of interests, Joe Biden's son-in-law Howard Krein is advising Biden's campaign on the Coronavirus pandemic, while investing in companies which stand to gain from it.  Try to imagine the reaction from Democrats and the media, if Trump's son in law was poised to benefit financially from the pandemic.  It would be front page news.

Hunter Biden Emails Released — And Photo of Hunter Sleeping with a Crack Pipe Like a Baby's Pacifier.  As reported earlier by Kristinn Taylor — The New York Post released shocking emails that prove Hunter Biden introduced his father, then-Vice President Joe Biden, to a top executive at the Burisma Ukrainian energy firm a year before the elder Biden pressured government officials in Ukraine into firing a prosecutor who was investigating the company.  Hunter Biden left his laptop at a computer shot and then neglected to pick it up after several calls.  The IT firm handed over Hunter's laptop to the feds who so far have done nothing.  But the IT professionals first downloaded much of the contents from the computer including shots of Hunter with alleged prostitutes and a photo of Hunter sleeping with his crack pipe like a pacifier.

Senate committee investigating alleged Hunter Biden drive, smoking-gun email.  A Senate committee is investigating a bombshell cache of documents about Hunter Biden's foreign dealings acquired by a Delaware computer repairman and exposed Wednesday [10/14/2020] by The [New York] 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 the documents.  An email from the cache indicates Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden met with Vadym Pozharskyi, an adviser to the board of Ukrainian energy company Burisma, while it employed his son.  At the time, Biden led the Obama administration's Ukraine policy.  Biden said last year, "I have never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings," including his reported $83,000 monthly pay on Burisma's board.

U.S. Doesn't Need A President Who Hides His Agenda From Voters.  Not only has Biden refused to say if he will or won't crowd the Supreme Court with left-wing jurists, he's condescendingly said voters have no right to know what his plans are.  "Well sir, don't the voters deserve to know" if he will pack the court, "the no. 1 thing I've been asked about from viewers in the past couple of days," a Las Vegas reporter asked him last week.  "No, they don't," responded Biden.  Packing the court doesn't sit well with voters.  They're smart enough to know it would result in an arms race with both parties adding seats to the court each time they gained control of the White House and held majorities in both congressional chambers, and that a bloated, see-sawing Supreme Court would lose legitimacy and "thus unable to check the power of the other branches."  Even through their rage, Democrats recognize voters' concerns.  So it's no surprise Biden tried to diffuse the issue on Monday.  At an Ohio campaign stop, he said "I'm not a fan of court packing." It was an empty gesture, however, because he immediately added "I don't want to get off on that whole issue," meaning that he's still hiding his plans.

Joe Biden Championed Freezing Social Security Benefits for Elderly Americans.  Former Vice President Joe Biden is running for the White House this year as an avowed champion of Social Security despite his decades-long effort to freeze spending for the program to cut the federal budget deficit.  The Democrat nominee, who has promised to expand Social Security benefits if elected, has been lambasting President Donald Trump in recent weeks for pushing a proposal to cut payroll taxes in the wake of the novel coronavirus pandemic.  Biden has argued, in both television ads and on the campaign trail, that cutting payroll taxes will create a structural problem for the Social Security trust fund.

Pandering: Biden Campaign Launches a 'Rap Ad' Aimed at Blacks.  The Biden-Harris campaign on Tuesday dropped a new ad called "Ultimate Rap League Biden GOTV" featuring rappers DNA and Charlie Clips.  It's clear the intention of the ad is to pander to Black Americans in hopes of getting them to vote for the Democratic ticket.  "You know why I don't vote?  Because, as a black man, I just feel like there's no hope.  Our president telling us for people to go back to 'China,' taking the coronavirus as a joke, and that's the part that frightens me," Clips explained.  "When you choose the president it's supposed to be a knock out, then why doesn't this situation enticen me?  If you got the answers to get me out this dark path, my brotha, enlighten me."  DNA explained that under a Biden-Harris administration homeownership would be obtainable for Blacks.  He also said that Blacks can't favor Obamacare but then vote for Trump.

Biden Plagiarism Involved More Than the Words.  Britain's Labor Party leader Neil Kinnock had talked about his coal miner ancestors.  "Why am I the first Kinnock in a thousand generations to be able to get to university... Was it because all our predecessors were thick? ... Those people who could sing and play and recite and write poetry? ... Those people who could work eight hours underground and then come up and play football?"  Mr. Biden had stolen the lines:  "Why is it that Joe Biden is the first in his family ever to go to a university? ... Is it because I'm the first Biden in a thousand generations to get a college and a graduate degree?  That I was smarter than the rest?  Those same people who read poetry and wrote poetry and taught me how to sing verse?  Is it because they didn't work hard?  My ancestors, who worked in the coal mines of northeast Pennsylvania and would come up after 12 hours and play football for four hours?"  The problem was, Mr. Biden was not the first in his family to go to college.  Mr. Biden also did not have any coal-miner relatives.

Biden's Self-serving Lies.  Yesterday (October 13), The New York Post outed yet another self-serving Joe Biden lie.  Biden recently claimed that when he was a teenager, he regularly attended church services at the (black) Union Baptist Church in Wilmington, Delaware.  Biden has claimed he did this because he identified with blacks' struggle for Civil Rights, so he became a Civil Rights organizer at this church.  But people from the church deny that it ever happened.  Biden stated this lie to a crowd of parishioners at the Bethlehem Baptist Church in South Carolina on Jan. 20, telling them that on Sunday mornings, he'd first go to the 8 A.M. Catholic Mass and then went to Reverend Herring's church to help them organize their Civil Rights plans.  He said, "I got my education, for real, in the black church, and that's not hyperbole.  It's a fact." [...] But it simply isn't true.  Congregants and a longtime assistant to Herring at the prominent black church said they never remembered Biden attending as he claimed and said he met Herring as an adult.

Biden Caught in Another Lie in Desperate Bid for Black Votes.  Politicians love to show how much they identify with the average voter.  It's part of their schtick to drop names and act the role of a glad-handing drinking buddy.  For Democrats, especially, the working-class persona is much coveted on the campaign trail.  But Biden has continuously lied about his past.  He claims to have been the first in his family to go to college.  He claims his father worked in a coal mine.  And on and on. [...] Lying politicians are a given.  But fabricating an entire past is virtually unheard of.  Joe Biden apparently lies as easily about his past as he does about his agenda.  And that spells trouble for America if he's elected.

Biden Family Corruption Spreads Into Coronavirus Response.  According to the far-left Politico, we can now add Joe Biden's son-in-law to the members of the Biden family who have put themselves into a position to profit off the former vice president's position and power.  Biden's daughter, Ashley, is married to Philadelphia head and neck doctor Howard Krein.  The two met in 2010 and married in 2012.  Currently, Krein serves as chief medical officer for a firm called StartUp Health, an investment firm that, according to Politico, "unveiled a new coronavirus initiative soliciting pitches from entrepreneurs with products that addressed the outbreak."  And now Krein is advising the Biden campaign on the coronavirus.

Obama to return to campaign trail to help floundering Biden and releases ad urging Democrats to vote.  Former President Barack Obama, still a hugely popular figure among Democrats, fronted a new video campaign Tuesday to get out the vote for Joe Biden.  In videos tailored for states vital to Biden's challenge against President Donald Trump, Obama urges voters to get organized ahead of an election disrupted by COVID-19, increased use of mail-in ballots, and Trump's unprecedented — and debunked — claims of a rigged contest.  En route to Florida Tuesday, Biden also said Obama would soon be hitting the campaign trail too.  'He's doing enough for our campaign.  He'll be out on the trail,' Biden told reporters.

The Editor says...
As a rule of thumb, any endorsement by Obama is political poison.

A Cautionary Tale:  Trump and Biden, What's to Choose.  [Scroll down]  Mr. Biden says he will reinstitute Mr. Obama's Cuba policy.  Presumably that will include the dismantling of the 50-plus governments' coalition that has withdrawn diplomatic recognition from Nicolás Maduro's regime, which is supported by a large Cuban military deployment.  A return to Obama's policy means an influx of millions of tourist dollars to the coffers of the repressive communist regime in Havana, at a time of growing popular unrest and confrontations with the police throughout the island.  The Obama administration acquiesced to Raúl Castro's demands:  it ended the wet feet/dry feet immigration policy, returned to Cuba a spy serving a life sentence for his role in murdering Americans, and removed Cuba from the list of countries that were supporters of terrorism while FBI-wanted terrorists lived there.

Oops: Biden says Trump won Ohio and Florida 'the last two times'.  Donald Trump has only run for president once, but that's not how former Vice President Joseph R. Biden remembers it.  The Democratic presidential candidate said Monday [10/12/2020] that President Trump won Florida and Ohio "significantly the last two times." The last two presidential elections were in 2012 and 2016.  "If we win Ohio, the game's over," Mr. Biden told WKRC-TV in Cincinnati.  "I think Ohio and Florida are two critically important states that are very close that Trump won significantly the last two times."

Biden Has No Idea How Long Trump Has Been President.  We're coming down to the wire on the election now.  Joe Biden seems to be unraveling the closer we get, as my colleagues reported earlier [elsew]here.  Biden couldn't remember the name of the "governor," the "Mormon," who he previously ran against.  He couldn't remember what state he was in.  He couldn't remember what office he was actually running for, saying he was a "proud Democrat running for the Senate."  He gave out a URL to a website that didn't exist.  Biden was asked about the Gallup poll that found 56% of Americans thought they were better off now than they were four years ago.  So why should they vote for him, the reporter asked.  His response is classic Biden, to get angry/snippy when he's challenged with a real question.

There is NO Pro-Life Case for Voting for Pro-Abortion Joe Biden for President.  A new group called Pro-Life Evangelicals for Biden resoundingly failed to make a case for why Christians should vote for the pro-abortion Democrat, two national news outlet editorial boards responded this week.  Editors at The Christian Post and the Washington Times both said there is no pro-life argument to be made in support of Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden, who has grown increasingly radical on the issue.  Biden now supports abortions without restriction and wants to force taxpayers to pay for them.  In April, he called elective abortions an "essential medical service."  Then, in June, he said he supports abortions "under any circumstances" and wants to codify Roe v. Wade into federal law.  These positions almost certainly would increase the killing of unborn babies in elective abortions across the U.S.  Claiming that pro-life evangelical Christians should support Biden is "oximoronic," The Washington Times editorial board responded.

'Not up to the job': Former White House doctor says Biden lacks 'mental capacity' for presidency.  When the late Sen. John McCain ran for president in 2008, questions about his health — physical and mental — swirled.  Americans were well aware that should McCain die in office, his vice president, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, would've become president.  Had he been elected, he would have been 72 years old when he moved into the White House.  So Americans may have that same concern with Democratic nominee, Joe Biden, who would be 78 if he wins the election.  Cue former White House physician Dr. Ronny Jackson, who held the prestigious post from 2013 to 2018, serving both Trump and President Obama.  Jackson on Tuesday [10/13/2020] said Biden "does not have the mental capacity" to be able to handle the presidency and the job of commander in chief.

Joe Biden Gets Angry Again, Tells 56% of Americans Not to Vote for Him in Bizarre Outburst.  Joe Biden's bouts of anger and snark on the campaign trail have been visible for quite a while.  We've seen him snap before, challenging people to push-up contests, calling them names, and even challenging people to fights.  Before the pandemic, Biden even went as far as to threaten to slap a union worker for asking a question he didn't like about the Second Amendment.  None of this is normal.  As I reported yesterday, Joe Biden had a string of "gaffes" which once again pointed to his probable dementia.  He forgot where he was, couldn't figure out where he was supposed to exit the stage, said he was running for the Senate instead of president, and forgot Mitt Romney's name, offensively calling him "the Mormon."

Joe Biden's Probable Dementia Was on Full Display Today.  Joe Biden is not well.  That marks one of several dozen times I've opened an article in that fashion or similar, yet those words have become no less relevant with time.  The former VP is only getting worse and that was on full display today as he attempted to give a speech to auto workers.  To be clear, when I say "full display," I mean that it went beyond just the clips I'm about to share.  As RedState reported earlier, Biden forgot who Mitt Romney was while getting off his plane, instead calling him "the Mormon."  How do you forget the man the top of your previous ticket ran against for re-election to the highest office in the land?  The answer is that normal people do not forget that.  But Biden is not normal.  Nothing about this is normal.  [Video clips]  That his wife continues to push him into this, along with his handlers, is just bad form at this point.  What we do know is that there's next to no chance he finishes a term if he wins in November.  That means Kamala Harris is the defacto top of the ticket.  Vote accordingly.

Associated Press goes full Orwell, calling 'packing' of SCOTUS 'court reform'.  It is obvious from Joe Biden telling voters that they don't deserve to know if he plans to pack the Supreme Court that he and his handlers are terrified of a negative voter reaction to the plan.  Biden's remarkably stupid comment came in response to a reporter's question at an interview where no teleprompter guidance was feasible. [...]

Brain Freeze:  Joe Biden Says He Is Running for Senate and President.  Former Vice President and Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden erroneously stated Monday that he is running for the U.S. Senate moments before saying he is running for President of the United States.  "We have to come together, that's why I'm running as a proud Democrat for the Senate," Biden said, seemingly misreading his teleprompter script during his remarks in Toledo, Ohio.

Biden Claim of Being 'Raised' in Black Church Doesn't Hold up to Scrutiny.  Joe Biden's disturbing habit of telling audacious lies about his biography took another hit this week when the Washington Free Beacon discovered no one can remember Biden attending a black church he claims to have attended at a teen.  On the campaign trail, Biden has claimed he was "raised" in a black church.  Last year, he said, "I got raised in the black church.  We would go sit in Rev. Herring's church, sit there before we'd go out, and try to change things when I was a kid in college and in high school."

Biden Talked of Attending Black Church As a Teen, But Members Don't Recall It.  On the campaign trail, Joe Biden has talked frequently about his early years in the civil rights movement.  As a teenager, he says, he regularly attended a black church in Wilmington, Del., where he was involved in organizing anti-segregation protests in the early 1960s.  "I got raised in the black church," Biden said in a speech to Jesse Jackson's Rainbow PUSH coalition last year.  "We would go sit in Rev. Herring's church, sit there before we'd go out, and try to change things when I was a kid in college and in high school."  The church Biden referenced, Union Baptist Church, was a prominent African-American church in Wilmington run by Rev. Otis Herring, an acclaimed pastor who passed away in 1996.  But Biden has made comments that seem to contradict the account.

He's already making excuses, and he hasn't even lost yet.
Biden Says 'Only Way' He Won't Win Election Is If 'Chicanery' Occurs At Polls.  Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden said Tuesday that the only way he would lose the election in November is by "chicanery" in the form of voter intimidation.  "Make sure to vote because the only way we lose this is by the chicanery going on relative to polling places," Biden told supporters while speaking in Erie, Pennsylvania Saturday [10/10/2020].  Biden later clarified his remarks and said that he would accept the results of the election regardless of who wins.

If Biden Were a Republican.  Mr. Biden, at a presidential debate, you said of your son Hunter, "My son did nothing wrong."  Do you not understand the blatant conflict involved with having a son on the board of a Ukrainian energy company, who was seemingly paid for his connections to you at a time when you, according to the New Yorker magazine, were "playing a central role in overseeing U.S. policy in Ukraine"?  Are you seriously arguing that Hunter Biden was hired by the Ukrainians and paid $3.4 million for his energy expertise, of which he has none, rather than as a backdoor way of influencing you and United States policy toward Ukraine?  A former official in the Obama White House told the New Yorker about the Ukraine matter there was a perception that "Hunter was on the loose, potentially undermining his father's message."  This same person said Hunter should have realized that at least some of the overseas business interests who were paying him did so because they wanted "to be able to say that they are affiliated with Biden."  Moreover, one of your own former business associates told the New Yorker, "The appearance of a conflict of interest is good enough, at this level of politics, to keep you from doing things like that."  Reports say Hunter Biden was paid an astounding $83,000 a month by this Ukrainian company while you were vice president.  Will you apologize to the American people for corruptly allowing your cocaine-abusing son to profit from your office as vice president?

How to Understand Joe Biden's Ukrainian Connection.  Joe Biden's shenanigans in Ukraine need to be understood in the context of the business and political culture of Ukraine and the former Soviet bloc.  We must not be naïve — the Ukrainian company Burisma Holding Limited did not hire a druggie like Hunter Biden, the son of the Vice President of the United States Joe Biden, for his expertise or business acumen.  It did not hire obscure Devon Archer, a managing partner of Rosemont Seneca Partners, a $2.4 billion private equity firm co-owned by the stepson of John Kerry Christopher Heinz, for his administrative genius, either.  Burisma expected it was hiring the principals, Joe Biden and John Kerry.  Hunter Biden and Devon Archer were just bagmen.

In Arizona, Biden's supporters left something to be desired.  People are noticing the missing crowds when Joe Biden and Kamala Harris visited Phoenix on Thursday [10/8/2020].  Not a single person turned out to cheer on the Democrat party candidates.  None.  Nada.  Zip.  That is stunning.  Trump-supporters find this heartening when comparing this to the crowds who turn out for Trump.  The narrative is that the Biden/Harris team actively doesn't want crowds, so they're not telling people about their events to ensure that no more than 50 people ever show up.  The excuse is the pandemic.

The Editor says...
Why would a political party stage campaign events — a month before the election — and then do everything they can to make sure nobody sees it?  Obviously that is not credible.  It is far more likely that nobody wants to see Biden or Harris in person.

Biden-Harris joint appearance in Arizona draws no spectators — as in ZERO attendees.  Who are you going to believe — the polls or your lying eyes?  With apologies to Groucho Marx, we now have the answer to the question:  "What if they held a Biden-Harris rally and nobody showed up?"  The answer is a shocked TV street reporter:  [Video clip]

Arizona Reporter Stunned After NO ONE Shows Up at Campaign Event with Joe Biden AND Kamala Harris.  An Arizona FOX 10 reporter was stunned this past week when NO ONE came out to see Joe Biden AND Kamala Harris outside the Heard Museum in Phoenix.  No one was holding signs on the road.  No one was outside of their venue to greet them.  [Video clip]

Interesting Biden Campaign Video from Arizona — Something is Curiously Absent.  As you watch this local media report of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris campaigning in Arizona most are focused on the complete absence of any support for the candidates; indeed, that is a rather weird fact.  However, additionally watch in the video how the campaign staff has placed markers on the ground as visible cues for Biden, Harris and McCain to walk with social distancing; and pay particular attention to how Biden attempts to navigate his proximity responsibility therein.  [Video clip]

The Four Horsemen of the Biden-Harris Ticket Apocalypse.  To date, the Trump-Pence reelection campaign has focused on exposing former Vice President Joe Biden's five decades of self-dealing and dereliction of his duty to the American people.  Among the lowlights, Biden has enriched his family at the expense of America's prosperity and security.  Biden was complicit in weaponizing the police, surveillance, intelligence, and taxing powers of the federal government against the Obama Administration's political opponents.  Biden's refusal to denounce BLM and Antifa rioters and his choice, instead, to downplay the violence is the height of irresponsibility and cowardice.

"Where Am I Going?" — A Confused Joe Biden Bolts From Podium After PA Speech and Walks Over to People Without A Mask.  Joe Biden traveled to Erie, Pennsylvania on Saturday [10/10/2020] promising to create a million new good paying jobs that he's never created in 47 years in office.  Biden wiped his nose and mouth after he removed his mask.  After finishing up his speech where he promised to raise taxes, Biden bolted away from the podium.  Biden never answers questions from reporters.

Democrat Joe Biden:  Voters 'Don't' Deserve To Know If I'm Going To Pack Supreme Court.  Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden told a local news reporter on Friday afternoon [10/9/2020] that voters do not deserve to know whether he will pack the Supreme Court if he wins the upcoming the election.  "Sir, I've got to ask you about packing the courts and I know you said yesterday you aren't going to answer the question until after the election, but this is the number one thing that I've been asking about from viewers in the past couple of days," the reporter said to Biden.  "Well, you've been asked by the viewers who are probably Republicans who don't me continuing to talk about what they're doing to the court right now," Biden responded.  "Well sir, don't the voters deserve to know--" the reporter pressed.  "No, they don't," Biden responded.

C'mon, man:  Biden must answer court-packing question.  The Commission on Presidential Debates will become irreversibly illegitimate unless it reverses course on in-person debates, which alone can force Joe Biden to answer the single most important question in this election: whether Biden would pack to the Supreme Court with additional seats, forever transforming our Constitution's three-branch form of government into a two-branch system.  The Constitution allows Congress to set the number of Supreme Court seats.  After several decades of trial and error, in 1869, Congress settled on nine seats, which has been a bedrock of stability in America's form of government for 151 years.  For more than half of our nation's existence, there has been only one attempt to change that number.

Mask-Shamer Joe Biden Literally Removed His Mask to Cough.  Some things you just have to see to believe.  During a drive-in campaign event in Las Vegas, Nev., on Friday, Joe Biden did something really stupid.  First, as you can see in the video below, he was unnecessarily wearing a mask while alone at his podium.  Second, he was wearing it wrong, with his only his mouth covered, and not his nose.  But the real absurdity came when he had to cough, and he literally pulled his mask down to cough into his hand, before readjusting his mask (correctly) and placing his now germ-ridden hand on the podium that some campaign intern would then be tasked with removing.  [Video clip]

Trump Is Now One With Countless Essential Workers.  Class differences, considerations, and interests are the real themes of this election.  They are on the side of the president who took the same calculated risks that millions do to meet the requirements of their jobs that simply cannot be done from basements and safe zones or over computers and smartphones.  Recently, Joe Biden, in his usual clumsy racialist fashion, at last confessed that his own half-year sequestration kept him safe only because, "some black woman was able to stack the grocery shelf."  Aside from the reality that Biden usually stereotypes black people as either stock people, or clueless ("you ain't black"), or defenseless ("put 'y'all back in chains" ) or addicted to drugs ("you taking cocaine or not?  What do you think, huh?  Are you a junkie?"), he accidently stumbled upon a truth here.  Biden really doesn't take risks, because he assumes that others less privileged will take them on his behalf.

Joe Biden Under Pressure from Democrats to Publicly Embrace Supreme Court Packing Plan.  At a campaign stop on Thursday, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden once again refused to publicly state whether he supports packing the U.S. Supreme Court with more justices.  But some Democrats are pushing for him to do so, even though he has previously opposed it.  Senator Ed Markey of Massachusetts recently urged Democrats to support court-packing if Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell moves to confirm President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett.

New York Times Reporter:  Kamala Harris Told Me Last Year She Was Absolutely 'Open' To Court Packing.  New York Times reporter Alexander Burns said during a Thursday episode of the newspaper's podcast that Democratic vice presidential nominee Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) told him last year that she was "absolutely open" to packing the Supreme Court.  "Senator Harris told me in an interview, actually, that she was absolutely open to doing that," Burns said. [...] The remarks from Burns come after Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden told reporters yesterday:  "You'll know my opinion on court packing when the election is over."

The Editor says...
If Trump wins the election, you won't hear another word from Joe Biden on this subject.  If Biden wins, he will implement whatever plans he may choose, because it will be too late for you to object.

Devon Archer — Hunter Biden's Ukraine/China Business Partner — Has Fraud Conviction Re-Instated by Appeals Court and Faces Prison Time.  [Scroll down]  The trial judge is a familiar individual if you've been paying attention to various anti-Trump efforts by the Democrats and the media — District Judge Ronnie Abrams.  Judge Abrams is the daughter of high profile New York First Amendment attorney Floyd Abrams, the brother of noted television personality Dan Abrams, and most interestingly the wife of Mueller Special Counsel prosecutor Greg Andres.  She was appointed by Pres.  Obama in 2011.  I'm beyond giving anyone connected to the Obama Justice Department or the Special Counsel's Office the benefit of the doubt on matters involving Pres.  Trump.  Andres had been a Deputy Assistant Attorney General for the Obama DOJ Criminal Division in 2010-12.  The Mueller SCO was in full swing from June 2018 to November 2018, when Judge Abrams was thinking about, and ultimately decided to take Devon Archer off the hook and eliminate any incentive he might have to cooperate with the Trump Justice Department.  The Second Circuit opinion is quite "dismissive" of the rationale she offered for doing so in her written opinion.  They remanded the case back to the district court for sentencing.

Biden: 'You'll Know My Opinion on Court Packing When the Election Is Over'.  Joe Biden told reporters Thursday [10/8/2020] he would reveal his stance on expanding the size of the Supreme Court the day after the election.  "You'll know my opinion on court packing when the election is over," Biden said during a joint appearance with his running mate Sen. Kamala Harris (D., Calif.) in Arizona.  He said his position would become a "distraction" if he were to state it.  Biden has repeatedly dodged on the question of whether he supports expanding the size of the Supreme Court.  During the first presidential debate, Biden refused to take a position on court packing.  "Whatever position I take on that, that will become the issue," he said.

Biden website vows 'assault weapons' ban, forced gun registration and banning online sales of guns, ammo and parts.  Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden vowed on his campaign website to ban online gun and ammo sales, limit gun sales, ban "assault weapons," force gun owners into buybacks or registration, and various other restrictions.  Biden has expressed his anti-gun ideas, but his website spells out the specific measures he intends to take if he wins the election and assumes the presidency, which he describes as "constitutional, common-sense gun safety policies."  "Biden will enact legislation to once again ban assault weapons," Biden's website says.  "While working to pass this legislation, Biden will also use his executive authority to ban the importation of assault weapons."

Flashback: Joe Biden Implied Thomas Sowell Was Racist For Opposing Affirmative Action.  Democratic Presidential Nominee Joe Biden implied that Dr. Thomas Sowell, Senior Fellow at The Hoover Institution at Stanford University, a black man, was racist for opposing the principles motivating affirmative action legislation.  The exchange occurred during the confirmation hearings of Supreme Court Nominee Robert Bork in 1987.  Sowell attended the hearings to testify on behalf of Judge Bork and was given 10 minutes to make a case for his character.  It was during this hearing that Democrats, including then Sen. Biden, slandered Bork and failed to confirm him in a 42-58 vote.  Biden pushed Sowell on his public opposition to affirmative action, implying that Sowell, a black man, is racist for his opinion on the policy.

Federal appeals court reinstates criminal convictions of Hunter Biden's business partner.  The United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit on Wednesday reversed a lower court decision to grant a new trial in a fraud case involving Hunter Biden's ex-business partner Devon Archer.  Hunter Biden was not charged in the scheme, but Biden's name was reportedly "invoked at various stages of the fraud as a selling point in transactions."  Archer was indicted on March 26, 2018 and charged with conspiracy to commit securities fraud and securities fraud for a Native American tribal bond scheme hatched by Archer and several of his business partners.  After a trial lasting approximately one month, the jury found Archer guilty on both counts.  Archer asked the district court to set aside the jury's verdict and successfully pushed for a retrial.  Now, the Second Circuit Court of Appeals has reinstated the jury's conviction and sent the Archer case back to district court for sentencing.

FBI Refuses to Provide Answers to Congressional Inquiries Related to Hunter Biden's Criminal Activities Revealed in Bombshell Senate Report.  The FBI is once again stonewalling Congressional oversight on Hunter Biden's criminal overseas activities.  A couple weeks ago Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH) sent Director Wray a letter demanding answers on whether the FBI is investigating Hunter Biden's crimes.  The Senate Finance and Homeland Security Committees released a devastating report on Hunter Biden, Burisma and corruption Wednesday morning [10/7/2020].  The crooked Biden family enriched themselves and Barack Obama knew.

Joe Biden Says 'You'll Know My Opinion on Court-packing When the Election Is Over'.  Former Vice President Joe Biden has refused, once again, to reveal his stance on "packing" the Supreme Court:  "You'll know my opinion on court-packing when the election is over," he told reporters in Arizona on Thursday [10/8/2020].  Court-packing involves expanding the number of justices on the nation's highest court and filling the new seats with liberals to overcome the current conservative majority.  It was rejected the last time it was proposed, in the 1930s.  Biden has remained vague on court-packing since the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg last month.  In Arizona, he tried to frame the issue as something only the media cared about.

Progressives, including 'Squad,' release agenda to push Biden to the left.  A group of progressives, including the freshman "Squad," unveiled their new vision for America on Thursday that will serve as a rallying cry for the election and a roadmap on how to push Joe Biden leftward.  The Working Families Party "People's Charter" calls for free public healthcare, universal childcare, creating millions of green jobs, canceling student debt, a $15 minimum wage and shifting money away from police departments and toward investments in schools and communities.  One of the plan's backers, Rep. Ro Khanna, D-Calif., said the agenda will be the legislative blueprint for what progressives in the House will push during a Biden-Harris Administration.

Biden's Pseudoscientific Masquerade.  Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden insists that, if he wins the November election, his COVID-19 policies will "follow the science." This would certainly be a welcome departure from his rhetoric regarding the pandemic.  Biden's public statements, particularly on mask mandates, general lockdowns, and in-person education, are clearly at odds with the recommendations of an increasing number of epidemiologists and public health scientists.  His continued advocacy of countermeasures that have proven ineffective or even harmful suggest that the former vice president is scientifically illiterate or has deliberately ignored the discoveries made by genuine scientists about COVID-19 since it claimed its first U.S. victim in February.  The most risible manifestation of Biden's imposture concerning COVID-19 involves his science-free claims that mask mandates will somehow ameliorate transmission of the virus.

Biden raises eyebrows, tells 'beautiful' young girls he wants to see them dancing when they're 4 years older.  Democrat Joe Biden made another cringeworthy gaffe after reportedly telling several young black women that he wants to see them dancing in four years.  This ignited Twitter backlash from critics who said Biden was being "creepy" toward women again.  Biden made the statements after watching a traditional Haitian dance at the Little Haiti Cultural Center in Miami.  "The good news is, for me, I'm here.  The bad news for you is I'm coming back," Biden said.  He then pointed to several young girls and gushed:  "I want to see these beautiful young ladies.  I want to see them dancing when they're four years older too."  A Twitter user posted videos from the event and remarked how awkward and distasteful Biden's comments sounded.

Joe Biden to Girls:  I Want to See Them Dance 'When They're 4 Years Older'.  Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden spoke at the Little Haiti Cultural Center in Miami last night and told a group of underage girls that he wanted to "see them dancing when they're four years older," Breitbart reported.  [Video clip]  Joe Biden made stopped in Florida on Monday to try and cut into President Trump's favorability among Hispanic voters this year, the Miami Herald reported.  A group of traditional Haitian dancers, who appeared to be of various ages, gave a performance.

Why are networks afraid to let voters ask Joe Biden some tough questions?  TV networks are airing free infomercials to help Joe Biden, then pretend, absurdly, that they are being even-handed.  ABC, CNN and NBC call them "town halls."  NBC this week even tried to fraudulently pass off blatant Biden backers as neutral, uncommitted voters.  "We are surrounded by dozens of undecided voters," NBC's Lester Holt claimed.  Yet what followed was a nonstop volley of softballs and loaded, anti-Trump questions:  Was Biden surprised President Trump got COVID?  How will Biden lead the nation when faced with "bullies" like Trump?  Not asked were questions like:  Does Biden embrace Democrats' threat to pack the Supreme Court if Amy Coney Barrett is confirmed?  And why hasn't he blasted Antifa or Black Lives Matter violence?  Nor did anyone ask about his waffling on fracking or the Green New Deal.  Or grill him on the millions his family earned from foreign sources while he was in office.

Joe Biden Has an Idea So Dumb That it Will Make Your Brain Melt.  Joe Biden is just mindlessly repeating lines that are being fed to him at this point.  We all see it, and it's the only thing that makes sense given some of the positions he's taken lately.  Yesterday [10/5/2020], Biden did a campaign ad, oh excuse me, a "town hall" on MSNBC to answer "random" questions from "undecided" voters.  They were, of course, anything but that, as all of those who got to participate were obviously partisans put there to tee up Biden's talking points.  One of those talking points involved police.  Biden's answer was one of the dumbest, most dangerous things I've heard over the last four months of turmoil.  [Video clip]

Creepy Joe goes to Florida.  Joe Biden, [...] is back on the campaign trail, this time attempting to win votes in Florida.  He was out and about, speaking impromptu, and it didn't take long for the talk to get gross. [...] The other thing that's cringe-inducing is the pasha-like fascination with dancing girls, even though the elementary school-aged girls he was pointing to most certainly were not dancing.  Why didn't he point to some boys, or some random old people, or a happy-looking couple?  Somehow, wandering around without staying in the social-distancing circle his team made everyone else stand in, Biden effectively pointed to the girls and told them to "dance" for him, a creepy Roman emperor or King Herod thing, something one orders of one's slaves.  And speaking of that, most of the audience in attendance was Haitian black people.  What's even creepier than a pervy pedophile pointing to young girls and commanding them to dance for him is the spectacle of an old white colonialist perv calling on black girls to dance for him.

Flashback: That Time 'Groping' Joe Biden Proposed Sending a Major U.S. Enemy a Huge Pile of Cash.  Sending Iran a no-strings-attached check for $200 million would certainly not have been a show of strength.  The actual Arab world would have thought America had lost its mind.  In retrospect, it's a very good thing Joe Biden wasn't president and therefore was unable to carry out this obviously terrible idea.  There's no evidence Biden's thinking has improved at all in the 19 years since then.

Biden says there shouldn't be second debate if Trump still has COVID-19.  Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden told reporters while boarding a plane to Delaware from Maryland on Tuesday that next week's presidential debate should be canceled if President Trump is still positive for COVID-19.  "I think if he still has COVID, then we shouldn't have a debate," Biden said Tuesday evening [10/6/2020].  Trump announced he had tested positive for coronavirus last Friday — three days after the first debate — though there has been some speculation that he was diagnosed as early as Thursday, the Wall Street Journal reported.

Biden Says He'll Make Abortion 'Law Of The Land' If Supreme Court Overturns Roe v. Wade.  Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, who once considered himself a "pro-life Democrat" told an NBC town hall event Monday night that he would enshrine abortion rights in federal law if the Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade.  Biden was responding to a questioner's concerns about the survival of "reproductive rights" if judge Amy Coney Barrett is confirmed to the nation's highest court.  "Cassidy Brown said having birth control and reproductive health care enabled her to start a career before having a family," The Associated Press noted of the exchange.  "She asked Biden about his plan if President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee Judge Amy Coney Barrett overturned women's reproductive rights."  Biden responded that he would make Roe v. Wade, the landmark case that made obtaining an abortion a Constitutional right, the "law of the land."

BLM Co-Founder Claims Joe Biden Is Part Of "Violent White Supremacist" System.  Vice President Joe Biden would like America's youth to believe that he has bent over backwards to 'really listen' to the demands of young progressives/cryptomarxists, including the activists in "Black Lives Matter".  Unfortunately for him, the transparent pandering hasn't been all that convincing.  Even after Biden and his fellow Democrats tacitly indulged the worst excesses of these so-called "activists" — anarchic rioting and violence in cities big and small across American — it seems the former VEEP, who played second fiddle to America's first black president for 8 years, has failed to win the BLM crowd over.  The latest evidence of this an be found in an ABC News interview with several young activists who are 'still out in the streets' peacefully protesting tell the press that they might consider voting for a third-party candidate instead of Biden.  [Video clip]

Biden Said Obama Gave 18,000 People Clemency.  He Was Off By 16,073.  Democratic Presidential Nominee Joe Biden falsely claimed that former President Barack Obama granted pardons and reduced sentences for criminal charges to 18,000 people in his NBC town hall Monday night.  The blunder occurred when town hall host NBC News's Lester Holt asked Biden a question about his record with criminal justice reform during his time in the White House with Obama. [...] Records from the United States Department of Justice demonstrate, however, that only 1,715 people were granted reduced sentences and only 212 were pardoned by former President Obama and former Vice President Biden over their eight years in office together.  Contrary to Biden's exaggerated claims, the Obama administration actually denied forms of clemency such as commutations and pardons to over 20,000 people.  Despite Biden's incorrect overstatement of his clemency-granting record, his false comments received no pushback from Holt.

Biden — a professed Catholic — promises to make abortion 'law of the land' if he's elected.  Former Vice President and Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has promised to make Roe Vs. Wade, the landmark Supreme Court decision to legalize abortion, the "law of the land" if elected.  He made the remarks Monday during the "NBC Joe Biden Town Hall' after being asked by a young woman if he would fight to keep Roe vs. Wade a right for women.  The question was raised because of the Supreme Court nomination by President Donald Trump of Justice Amy Coney Barrett, who is Catholic like Biden, but has openly professed her support of every human beings right to life.

Biden Claims "Extremist White Supremacy Groups" Are "Menacing Our Communities" as BLM-Antifa Marxists Loot Businesses, Burn Cities to the Ground.  Joe Biden traveled to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania on Tuesday to call for unity.  He did just the opposite.  Biden gave a very dark and divisive speech.  At one point, Biden claimed "white supremacists are menacing our communities."  Black Lives Matter Marxists and Antifa domestic terrorists (which Biden referred to as an "idea") have been rioting and looting virtually nonstop for several months.  But Biden is blaming violence on "white supremacists."

Joe Biden's History of Racial Comments.  Internal polling must be showing the Democrats hemorrhaging black support.  That would explain why Biden seeks to pin Trump as a racist to black voters.  Very specifically, he's attempted to have Trump disavow a lie that he supports white supremacists.  Meanwhile, the press has been ignoring the guy with the real racist history, former Vice President Joe Biden.  Biden made his mark as a young senator opposing federally ordered school busing and throughout his career lauded the positive relationships he had with segregationist senators who have long since died.  If you are unaware of Biden's past, it's because the ministry of disinformation, a.k.a., the media, has largely ignored it.

We All Know Why Corporate Media Is Avoiding Hunter Biden's Corruption Scandals That Implicate Joe.  Last week, a Senate Intelligence Committee report detailed how the son of a major presidential candidate, who has an extensive history of shady foreign business dealings, received a $3.5-million wire transfer from the wife of a Russian politician.  The New York Times, Washington Post, CNN, MSNBC, and most major media outlets didn't cover the wire-transfer story at all.  Four years ago, not reporting such a story was a possibility too absurd to even contemplate — but then again, no one would have predicted the candidate with the shady Russia ties is not Donald Trump, but Joe Biden.  People often talk about how Trump is responsible for destroying political norms, and that's a valid concern.  One of the truly frightening things about the Trump era, however, is how institutions have exploited a perceived crisis in truth-telling to justify abandoning their own standards by blaming it on Trump.  Increasingly, we see major stories break where the media establishment decides on a collective omertà because the story undermines its own credibility or might sway voters in directions it doesn't approve of.  When that happens, no news is good news.

'I Ran Against A Socialist': Biden Takes Aim At Sanders, Progressives In Town Hall.  Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden took great pains, Monday night, to distance himself from one of his top campaign advisors, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), and assure voters that he is not a stalking horse for a progressive presidential agenda.  President Donald Trump has long insisted that a Biden administration would be among the most progressive in history, and Biden has done little to dismiss that claim, welcoming a number of far-left Democratic legislators — including a handful of "Democratic socialists" — on to his campaign policy teams, and making Sanders, a well-known socialist himself, a chief surrogate.  Monday night, though, in a town hall event hosted by NBC News, Biden claimed that his victory over Sanders proves that he intends to govern as a moderate.

Joe Biden Admits He Has No Support From Law Enforcement In 2020.  One of Trump's strongest moments in the first presidential debate was when he confronted Biden about the fact that he has no support from law enforcement.  This week during a town hall event on NBC, Biden was asked about his plans for police, should he be elected.  Joe was forced to admit that he has no support from law enforcement in this election.

The American People Need To Know What Joe Biden Knows About His Family's Profits From China.  The joint Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs and Finance Committee report on Hunter Biden's business dealings with foreign powers, and their relation to U.S. government policy during the Obama-Biden administration, states the following: ["]Hunter Biden has extensive connections to Chinese businesses and Chinese foreign nationals that are linked to the Communist government.  Those contacts bore financial fruit when his father was vice president and after he left office.["]  These ties went beyond the former vice president's son.  The report adds:  "The records acquired by the Committees show consistent, significant and extensive financial connections among and between Hunter Biden, James Biden, Sara Biden ... and Chinese nationals connected to the Communist regime and PLA as well as other foreign nationals with questionable backgrounds."  The joint investigation details a stunning array of transactions that "paint a mosaic of the complex corporate structure that existed between entities linked to Hunter Biden, his associates, and his family and Chinese companies linked to the Communist government."  Many of the transactions were flagged for "potential financial criminal activity."  Such activity enriched Hunter Biden to the tune of millions of dollars.

Biden Threatens Religious Freedom, Suggests Christians With Certain Traditional Views Are 'Dregs of Society'.  Biden's rhetoric and policies single out those who adhere to traditional religious beliefs and moral convictions, aiming to limit their ability to live by their consciences and ostracizing them from polite society.  The Democrat may outwardly campaign on a platform of unity and diversity, but his candidacy truly represents a threat to traditional religious believers.  The most recent evidence of this insidious threat came last week, when a Biden staffer suggested that traditional religious beliefs that homosexual acts are sinful and that marriage is between one man and one woman should be so "taboo" as to disqualify someone from serving on the Supreme Court.

Biden and the Modern-Day Front Porch Campaign.  Joe Biden was chosen to be the nominee of the Democrat party by a cabal of left-wing billionaires, Wall Streeters, and the party establishment in Washington, D.C.  After the early primaries, Bernie Sanders was the clear leader and potentially unstoppable in winning the nomination.  Fearful of his candidacy, these Party movers and shakers were determined to make certain he was not going to be their standard bearer and that's how Joe Biden became the anointed one.  It did not matter that Biden had revealed during the early primaries that he was neither mentally nor physically capable of carrying out the duties of the most grueling job on earth, much less of campaigning the length and breadth of the country attempting to garner voter enthusiasm for a candidate so devoid of charisma, gravitas and mental acuity.  Thus, a modern variation of the old front porch campaigning was formulated using fear of the Chinese Virus pandemic as a cover.  This was done by dramatically exaggerating the dangers of the virus, keeping lockdowns in place in blue states and precipitating a never-ending drumbeat of mandatory, but in reality, needless mask usage at all times and in all places.

NYT: Say, Why Is Biden Being So "Cagey" About His Health?  A fair question, albeit a surprising query coming from the New York Times.  Joe Biden has gone out of his way to set a good public example of social distancing and mask-wearing in the COVID-19 pandemic, in contrast with Donald Trump's efforts to make things look more normal than they really are.  However, Biden and his campaign have been remarkably opaque about the protocols in place to protect the septuagenarian's health in this election, the NYT notes, and it's beginning to worry them.  Is something going on?

Biden spokesman rips NY Times for report claiming campaign is 'cagey on health questions'.  A spokesperson for the Biden campaign slammed The New York Times over a recent report alleging that the former VP's campaign has been "cagey on health questions" following President Trump's coronavirus diagnosis.  "With transparency on health newly significant in the presidential race, Joe Biden's safety protocols have remained largely under wraps.  But on Sunday evening [10/4/2020], his campaign said he had again tested negative for the coronavirus," the Times began a report on Sunday.  The report praised the Democratic nominee for going "great lengths to model responsible behavior in the coronavirus era," highlighting his mask-wearing, him not holding rallies, and his social distancing at campaign events.

Joe Biden Proposes 'Nationwide Mask Guidance' Instead of 'Mandate'.  Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden has dropped a "national mask mandate" from his platform but instead proposed a "guidance" on Saturday [10/3/2020]. Speaking to the Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU), Biden went through a litany of changes he would implement, including ordering his Department of Transportation to create a "nationwide mask guidance".

Flashback! Joe's eulogy for his good friend, former Cyclops Sen. Byrd.  Joe Biden was a good friend of the late Senator Robert C. Byrd.  He eulogized Byrd at his funeral, claiming 'Bob' "elevated" the Senate.  Biden left out the part where Byrd "exalted" the KKK.  He called former KKK Byrd the "embodiment" of his state.  [You had to be a Democrat to be a member of the KKK]  Watch and notice Gillibrand behind him (note how Joe sounded before he became senile):  [Video clip]

Is the Biden Campaign Already Colluding with His Former Intern, Fanboy and Debate Moderator Steve Scully on How to Steal Second Debate?  The Commission on Presidential Debates announced its three moderators for this year's planned debates in early September.  Chris Wallace from FOX News — a major Trump hater — was a complete disaster.  Wallace jumped in the ring to assist Joe Biden like a tag-team teammate on Wrestlemania.  And Wallace blocked any unkind words of Joe Biden or the Biden crime family.  Kristen Welker from NBC, another far left Trump-hater and Steve Scully from C-SPAN will moderate this year's debates.

With President Trump at Walter Reed, Biden Tells Florida Crowd to Fantasize About Trump Being Delivered a Death Blow.  Joe Biden traveled to South Florida on Monday to pander to the Latino community.  Biden gave a speech at the Little Haiti Cultural Complex and told the crowd to fantasize about President Trump being delivered a final death blow on election eve.  "Think about this, wouldn't it be an irony, the irony of all ironies, if on election eve, patience delivered a coup de grâce in this election," said Biden as President Trump is at Walter Reed Medical Center.

Joe Biden's niece [is] set to appear in court for [her] DUI case [on the] day after [the] presidential election.  Joe Biden's niece will have her day in court after she was busted on drugged-driving charges in Pennsylvania, with an arraignment set for Nov. 4 — one day after the presidential election.  Caroline Biden, 33, the daughter of Joe's brother James Biden, was arrested in Lower Merion Township, Pa., in August 2019.  The DUI case has been slowly moving through the courts.  The Nov. 4 arraignment ensures that the Biden bust will be kept in a deep freeze until after voters in the swing state and around the country go to polls.  "I find it unusual that it would be that far into the future," Mike Gottlieb, a Norristown attorney with experience in DUI cases, told The [New York] Post.

Joe Biden defense of his son's overseas business deals conflicts with public evidence.  During one of the many sharp exchanges at last week's presidential debate, Joe Biden flat out denied his son Hunter had any business relationship with the Russian oligarch Yelena Baturina, the billionaire wife of the
