News and commentary about former Vice-President Joe Biden

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.

CNN Says Americans 'Unlikely' to See Higher Taxes Under Biden.  CNN is trying to hoodwink Americans into believing that their taxes won't increase under a Biden administration.  The network's latest article read like a press release by former Vice President Joe Biden's campaign staff:  "The vast majority of Americans are unlikely to see their taxes go up under President-elect Joe Biden, despite false claims by President Donald Trump to the contrary."  The article used the left-wing Tax Policy Center (TPC) as its source.  CNN Politics writer Katie Lobosco, in her piece headlined "Will your taxes go up under Biden?  It's unlikely," reiterated the false Biden campaign position that the tax plan "wouldn't raise individual taxes on anyone earning less than $400,000 a year, which is more than 90% of taxpayers."  That flies directly in the face of a rare fact check that ABC's Jonathan Karl did on that same Biden claim.

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.

Biden Mocks a Reporter for Asking a Question as Biden's Staff Tries to Get the Press Out of There.  One of the things that never got the attention it really should have from the mainstream media during the campaign is how short-tempered and nasty Joe Biden can be with anyone who asks him a question that he doesn't like.  We saw that several times, when Biden lost it on voters or media who dared question him.  You may recall him infamously calling someone a "lying dog-faced pony soldier," threatening an autoworker to take him "outside" and even screaming in CBS's Ed O'Keefe's face, grabbing his lapels and tapping him in the chest with his fist.  But he's often been very churlish with the media, despite them bending over backwards to toss him softballs or cut him a break.

Reap What You Sow:  Media Who Coddled Biden for Months Now Complain About Mistreatment.  For the second time in a month, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has snapped at CBS News reporter Bo Erickson.  The first time it happened was in mid-October after Biden had done some campaign stops in Michigan.  As Biden prepared to board his private jet, Erickson stepped up to the plate and asked him about what no other reporter would:  The New York Post's explosive story on Hunter Biden's laptop and the emails that were discovered on it. [...] It happened again on Friday.  Biden and his vice presidential running mate Kamala Harris held a meeting in Delaware with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer to formulate a game plan for their legislative priorities in the event Biden and Harris are certified next month as the winners of the presidential election.  As is often the case with Biden, press availability was severely limited — 50 seconds, to be exact.

Joe Biden:  Why Are Reporters Asking Me Questions?  Former Vice President Joe Biden isn't used to getting real questions.  On Friday, Biden appeared dumbfounded as to why a reporter was asking the projected Democratic presidential-elect a question as the press pool was being scurried away by staff.  "Mr. Biden, the COVID task force said it's safe for students to be in class.  Are you going to encourage unions to cooperate more to bring kids back to classrooms, sir?" asked CBS reporter Bo Erickson.  "Why are you the only guy that always shouts out questions?" Biden said.

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, 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.

The Editor says...
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.

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 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."

The Editor says...
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. [...]"

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.

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."

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.

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.

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.

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, " 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.

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.

[#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.

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."

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 late Moscow mayor.  "Why is it, just out of curiosity, the mayor of Moscow's wife gave your son three and a half million dollars?" President Trump asked during one flash point.  "That is not true," Biden answered.  "Oh really, he didn't get three and a half million?" Trump persisted a few second later.  "It's totally discredited," the former vice president snapped back.  "Totally discredited."  In fact, Biden's answer directly conflicts with evidence that the U.S. Senate, the FBI and the U.S. Treasury Department have all gathered.

How Treasury Dept. tracked overseas cash pocketed by Hunter Biden.  Democratic presidential nominee Joseph R. Biden flatly denied at Tuesday night's debate that his lawyer son took huge sums of money from corrupt oligarchs and Chinese communists during his vice presidency, but Treasury Department reports show that Hunter Biden did receive the money. [...] Hunter Biden received a single wire transfer of $3.5 million from Elena Baturina.  The Senate report said she became a billionaire through illegal construction contracts awarded by her husband, since deceased.  This is based on Treasury Department reports received by committee Chairman Ron Johnson, Wisconsin Republican, and Senate Finance Committee Chairman Charles E. Grassley, Iowa Republican.  The Senate narrative is not specific, but the types of transaction records match the description of confidential suspicious activity reports that the Treasury issues when it suspects illegal activity.

Media continue to cover up Joe Biden's mental decline.  The media have been ignoring and/or covering up Biden's obvious mental decline for more than a year now, even though the video evidence is at their fingertips.  So while Trump is recuperating, let us consider some of Joe's recent Greatest Hits. [...] Incidentally, just as he's flip-flopped on his earlier calls to halt fracking, Joe no longer wants to defund the police.  Now he just wants to have psychologists available for the local constabulary when they go out on a "nine-eleven call."  That's what Biden said.  Not 9-1-1, but nine-eleven.  You know, to deal with the "suicide academic epidemic."  Despite having his snout buried in the public trough for almost a half century, Joe has real problems remembering the names of programs, or agencies, like the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

Trump campaign blasts Biden for running negative ads while president is hospitalized.  President Trump's campaign blasted Joe Biden for continuing to air negative ads while the president is fighting COVID-19 at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Maryland.  Biden's campaign pledged Friday to take down all negative ads against Trump as the president battled the coronavirus, but TV spots criticizing the president were still running Saturday as the president was hospitalized.

'He's on the wrong team': Christian leaders criticize Biden campaign ads highlighting Biden's faith.  Christian leaders criticized 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden for "deceptive ads" highlighting the former vice president's faith to Catholic and Evangelical voters. [...] The first ad targets Catholic voters and is called "Principles," according to Religion News, showing Biden discussing Catholicism with the editor-in-chief of the liberal America Magazine.  The second ad, "Morning," targets Evangelical Christians and discusses how Biden's faith has helped him deal with the deaths of his wife, daughter, and son.  In the third ad, "A Man Guided by Faith" a member of Biden's parish describing why she believes Biden is a man of faith.

Catholic Group Launches $9.7 Million Anti-Biden Campaign in Battleground States.  A Catholic group is launching a multi-million dollar effort to educate Catholic voters in key battleground states about Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's "anti-Catholic record and policy agenda" ahead of the general election in November.  CatholicVote, a national Catholic political advocacy group, on Tuesday announced the $9.7 million campaign to discourage Catholics from voting for Biden.  The organization is producing an "in-depth report on Biden's record on issues Catholics care about," including a shortened "voter guide" version, that it plans to send to five million Catholic voters.  The effort will also kick off with a $350,000 digital ad buy in the swing states of Pennsylvania and Michigan.

No Joe, You Didn't Hand Trump A Booming Economy.  Joe Biden — along with his amen chorus in the press — keeps insisting that he and President Barack Obama handed Donald Trump a booming economy when they left office in 2016.  "We left a booming economy," Biden said during the first presidential debate, "and he caused the recession."  Debate moderator Chris Wallace jumped in to help Biden, adding that job growth was faster in the last three years of Obama's term than the first three of Trump's.  One is a flat out lie, the other a clever deception.  After presiding over the worst economic recovery since the Great Depression, Obama and Biden left office with the economy stalling out, leading experts to warn that the nation was facing "secular stagnation."

Biden's Catholic Con Job Continues.  This last week saw Joe Biden simultaneously advertising his "Catholic social justice" and touting his denial of it to unborn children.  The former claim came at the virtual Al Smith dinner, the latter boast at last Tuesday's debate.  It is a measure of Joe Biden's shamelessness that he seeks to snatch the Catholic and anti-Catholic vote at the same time.  He is running with an open anti-Catholic bigot, Kamala Harris, who regards mere membership in the Knights of Columbus as a disqualifier for public service, while rolling out ads designed to hoodwink Catholics into voting for him.

Joe Biden Campaign Launches 7-Figure Ad Buy to Woo Catholics, Evangelicals.  The Joe Biden campaign is releasing three ads this month targeting Catholic and evangelical Christian voters in an effort to portray the Democrat presidential nominee and Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) as "the clear moral choice" in the election.  The Biden campaign is investing financial resources in an attempt to win over Americans of faith at the same time the Democrat Party has embraced the radical position of access to abortion at any time during pregnancy; an insistence it has no room for pro-life individuals or candidates; a stated intention to provide full taxpayer funding for abortion industry giant Planned Parenthood; and an announced plan to force taxpayers to fund abortions.

Joe Biden Ad Features Rapper Who Called Nation Of Islam Leader Louis Farrakhan His 'Mentor'.  Joe Biden's presidential campaign released an ad this week narrated by a popular rapper who has called Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan his "mentor" and a "great guy."  The ad, narrated by Jeezy, aims to boost black voter turnout as part of the campaign's "Shop Talk" series.  "If you are out there marching in these streets, exercising your rights, you need to exercise your right to vote, too," Jeezy says in the ad, which is posted to the Biden campaign's YouTube channel.  "It's the only way to make sure we get the change we're looking for.  And I do mean we.  Us.  Better jobs, education, health care, and criminal justice reform."

Majority of voters think Biden has used his political career to enrich his family and friends.  A majority of U.S. voters say former Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has used his decades-long political career to enrich his family and close friends, according to a new Just the News Daily Poll with Scott Rasmussen.  When asked, 57% of voters said it was either "somewhat" or "very" likely that Biden's inner circle has profited from his nearly 50-years-long career in public office, which includes the elected positions of U.S senator and vice president.  Just 28% said they doubted such profiting.

Just before Obama left office, U.S. officials feared Hunter Biden firm in Ukraine paid second bribe.  Twenty-two days before President Obama left office, the U.S. ambassador to Kiev wrote top officials in Washington that she feared Burisma Holdings had made a second bribe to Ukrainian officials — shortly before a corruption probe against Hunter Biden's natural gas employer was abruptly closed before Donald Trump took office.  The concerns are detailed in new memos belatedly released to Just the News under a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the State Department.  The suit was brought on behalf of the news organization by the public interest law firm the Southeastern Legal Foundation.

Joe Biden ready to stand for whatever you want him to.  Lost in the blinding gaslighting over President Trump's remarks about white supremacists during this week's presidential debate was the fact that Joe Biden proved again that he's little more than a stand-in propped up by a compliant political press.  Biden was unable to answer even the most rudimentary queries about his beliefs, never mind specifics about policy.  Apologies to the Twitter expert class, but opposing Donald Trump is neither a moral doctrine nor a policy agenda.  There is plenty to dislike about the president, but you rarely have to guess where he stands.  Biden, on the other hand, says, "I am the Democratic Party," and yet, after a half-century in American politics, we have virtually no idea what his presidency would look like.

Biden launches ads touting his faith after cardinal says he's 'not a Catholic in good standing'.  Former Vice President Joe Biden has launched an ad campaign seeking to highlight his faith as many conservatives and fellow Catholics have questioned the sincerity of his beliefs.  The campaign includes three ads that are set to run in 14 states, many of which are major battlegrounds, according to Religion News Service (RNS).  "These ads are one component of our expansive, direct appeal to people of faith that Vice President Biden's agenda is much more aligned with their common good values than the divisiveness, racism, and fear we see from the current administration," Josh Dickson, who leads the campaign's faith engagement, reportedly said.

Racism is a red herring, at best, when the subject at hand is abortion.  If there is a connection between racism and abortion, it is in the disproportionate number of black babies being aborted.  Now who's the racist?

The Grifters of the Left.  There was a time when Democrats were the party of the working man.  Democrats, at least some of them, were the coal miners, the auto mechanics, the electricians.  Now?  Now, they're the lobbyists, the PR consultants, the diversity coordinators, and the nonprofit apparatchiks.  That party is fronted almost completely by people who don't exist in the productive economy.  The most productive Democrats in the private sector are in tech or the creative industries, but the bulk of the folks who really make the wheels turn don't create a thing.  Rather, they redistribute.  Joe Biden has spent 47 years in that realm.  Elected to the Senate at age 29 just a few years out of law school, largely on a false narrative about his brilliant academic achievements, he's done nothing but move other people's money around to allies and favorites.

Proud Boys Founder Announces He's Suing Biden, CNN and 'Reporters Who Call Multiracial Patriotic Group White Supremacists and Nazis'.  Proud Boys founder Gavin McInnes has announced that he is suing Joe Biden, CNN and "all of these reporters who call this multiracial patriotic group white supremacists and Nazis."  Despite the fact that the current Proud Boys Chairman Enrique Tarrio is Cuban and African American, Biden and his media lackeys have been smearing the group as "white supremacists" since President Donald Trump walloped him in the debate on Tuesday.

Sandmann's Lawyer to Sue Joe Biden for Calling Kyle Rittenhouse a White Supremacist.  On Wednesday [9/30/2020], Lin Wood announced he would sue Democratic nominee Joe Biden for libel after the candidate released an ad suggesting that his client, 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse, is a "white supremacist" responsible for violence in Kenosha, Wisc.  Wood has represented Nick Sandmann, the Covington Catholic High School graduate repeatedly defamed by the legacy media after the March for Life last year.  Wood has represented Sandmann in wresting money from CNN and The Washington Post in defamation lawsuits.

Joe Biden's Brother Frank Finally Agrees to Pay Part of the $1 Million He Owes Family of Man Killed in Car Crash.  After dodging creditors for decades, Joe Biden's slimy grifting brother Frank Biden finally agreed to pay part of the $1 million he owes the family of a man killed in a car accident in 1999.  Frank Biden, then 43, was sitting in the passenger seat when he shifted the 290hp car into manual and told the driver to 'punch it' before hitting and killing Michael Albano in Cardiff, California.  Biden allegedly told the driver to 'keep driving' and fled the scene of the accident.  A passenger reportedly said everyone in the car was drinking.

Biden's Debate Comment About 'Allah Willing' May Not Have Been as Innocent as Some Claim.  During the first presidential debate between Donald Trump and Joe Biden, while the president was saying that he would release his tax returns once an ongoing IRS audit ends, Biden interrupted him by saying, "When — insha'allah?"  The utterance of this Arabic phrase, which simply means "Allah willing," by the Democratic candidate is strange, and also revealing.  For starters, why, in a purely American setting, would Biden suddenly resort to Arabic?  It would have been one thing if he used this formulation before a Muslim audience — it would then be chalked up to diplomacy, pandering, etc. — but why use it when around Americans and during a distinctly American event such as a U.S. presidential debate?

The Editor says...
Joe Biden, the nominee of the Abortion Party, claims to be a devout Catholic.  A devout Catholic would not pander to the Muslims.

Unpacking Joe Biden's lies about the Trump job-creation miracle.  Try as they might, Democrats, the media and the blue-check Twitterati can't wish away President Trump's enormously successful stewardship of the US economy.  "You talk about the economy booming," moderator Chris Wallace told Trump at this week's presidential debate.  But "in Obama's final three years as president, more jobs were created, a million and a half more jobs, than in the first three years of your presidency."  Wallace was echoing one of the Biden campaign's favorite talking points.  But here's the thing:  That talking point depends on misleading and cherry-picked data.

Joe Biden vs. the 2nd Amendment.  President Trump has said numerous times that the Democrats are coming for your guns — either they will scrap the Second Amendment or gut it of any content.  Though some have claimed this is an exaggeration, dismissing it as mere pandering to his electoral base, this election cycle may be different.  One of the most significant signs of this is the Democrat Party platform and Joe Biden admitted in the first debate that he has given his stamp of approval on the 2020 platform.  Democrats and Republicans approach the Second Amendment from very different vantage points in their platforms.  Republicans talk about the right to own firearms as a right that stands on its own and the discussion regarding the issue in their party platforms begins from that foundation.

Joe Biden's Vacant Debate (And Eyes).  [Scroll down]  Am I the only person who noticed his eyes were dilated during the entire debate?  He has normal blue eyes, and looks like a normal person most of the time.  In the debate, he looked vacant, more vacant than usual.  Not a lost vacant, a "not there" vacant.  Check out clips and look at his eyes, they remind me of the Quint speech from Jaws about a shark's eyes, "lifeless eyes, black eyes, like a doll's eyes."  That was Joe Biden's eyes, at least to me, during the debate.  I'm not suggesting he was on mind-focusing drugs, but I am curious that one of the side effects of Adderall is dilated pupils.

Joe Biden hires Facebook executive Jessica Hertz for transition team.  Joe Biden's transition team has hired top Facebook executive Jessica Hertz as its general counsel to oversee ethical issues, as the campaign tussles with the social media giant to get it to censor President Trump's posts, according to a report.  This will be the second hire by Team Biden of a former Big Tech executive, following Carlos Monje, Twitter's director of public policy brought on as co-chair of the transition team's infrastructure policy committee.  Biden hiring Hertz, who worked on government relations with Facebook, has sparked fury on the left.  She will be responsible for "enforcement, oversight, and compliance" of the ethics plan the Biden transition team unveiled Wednesday [9/30/2020].

Biden Admits in Debate He'll Raise Taxes on Middle Class.  One of the key moments of Tuesday night's presidential debate was Joe Biden promising twice! to raise taxes on everyone, including the middle class.  "That's why I'm going to eliminate the Trump tax cuts," Biden said during his first of three debates with President Trump.  And then, to accentuate the point, he said it again, "I'm going to eliminate those tax cuts."

Joe Biden's 5 biggest lies from the debate stage.  At Case Western University in Ohio tonight, President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden faced off for the first presidential debate.  Biden called Trump a clown and a racist, and told him to shut up, he said that Antifa is an idea, not an organization, and he told five whopping lies from the debate stage, and there's evidence to prove it.

New Senate report reveals shocking corruption involving Hunter Biden.  You know something's up when the media bury a story that would have been a no-brainer for Page One if the subject was a Republican.  A new Senate report exposes shocking corruption involving Hunter Biden, who made millions in Ukraine at the natural gas company Burisma Holdings when his father, Vice President Joe Biden, was President Obama's Ukraine point man.  We've long known some of this, but the sheer scope of the influence peddling and sums involved are stunning.  The 87-page document also exposes Hunter's Russian connections, including a $3.5 million payment from the wife of a former Moscow mayor embroiled in scandal.

Biden used character assassination in Senate to fight GOP Supreme Court nominees like Barrett.  As we head toward Judge Amy Coney Barrett's Senate confirmation hearings on her nomination to the Supreme Court, let's not forget that former Vice President Joe Biden is responsible for turning the high court confirmation process into a blood sport driven by character assassination.  Biden, now the Democratic presidential nominee, claims to work across the aisle with Republicans.  But his vicious conduct as a Democratic senator from Delaware in the confirmation hearings for Robert Bork (whose nomination was not confirmed) and now-Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas is a permanent stain on the Senate's reputation.

Joe Biden and Chris Wallace Started It by Interrupting Trump Numerous Times First.  It was Joe Biden and Chris Wallace who set the tone for the first presidential debate — who deliberately rode the debate off the rails — because it was Joe Biden and Chris Wallace who interrupted Trump a handful of times before the president decided, If that's how you want to play the game, let's play the game.  You can watch the full debate below, and what you will see is a civil debate until Joe Biden and Chris Wallace decided it was okay to start interrupting the president.  [Video clip]

Rittenhouse Lawyer L. Lin Wood to Sue Joe Biden for Smearing His Client in Anti-Trump Video.  An attorney representing Kyle Rittenhouse, the teenager who fatally shot two agitators, and wounded another during a violent riot in Kenosha, Wisconsin, has vowed to sue Joe Biden and the Biden/Harris Campaign for libel.  President Trump "is not Biden's biggest problem," attorney L. Lin Wood declared on Wednesday [9/30/2020].  Biden, in an effort to paint President Trump as a racist supporter of white supremacism, tweeted out a video montage of alleged white supremacists that included an image of the 17-year-old Rittenhouse carrying an AR-15 rifle in Kenosha during the August 25 riot.

Kyle Rittenhouse to sue Biden, campaign for libel, attorney says.  An attorney representing alleged Kenosha shooter Kyle Rittenhouse has announced plans to sue Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and his campaign for libel on his client's behalf after Biden shared a video that appears to suggest the teenager is a White supremacist.  Lin Wood, Rittenhouse's civil attorney, confirmed to Fox News on Wednesday his intention to sue the former vice president and his campaign on his client's behalf, just hours after Biden posted the 50-second clip to Twitter.

Civility Has Disappeared.  Mr. Joe Biden may not be the most ill-mannered high official of the postwar era, but he is certainly in the running.  When he told the president of the United States of America to "shut up," I could hardly believe my ears.  That just isn't done.  But he did it.  He is also a scandalous braggart.  He claimed that he had been in charge of pulling the economy out of the collapse of 2008.  That was simply fantasy. [...] It's also frightening that he refused to distance himself from the leftist thug groups like Antifa and Black Lives Matter.  If elected he will follow his former boss as only the second president to take office propelled by men and women who hate America. [...] (Just by the way, I would love to know what Mr. Biden did in 2017 to earn $11 million.  It's just amazing how much we humans love money.)

Biden told so many whoppers last night, Burger King may sue him.  Right out of the gate, one of the first questions that erupted into a food fight was the idea of the Democrats getting rid of the legislative filibuster and packing the Supreme Court if Biden wins and his party retakes control of the Senate.  This one doesn't fall into the category of a "lie" on Uncle Joe's part.  If anything, it's worse.  He flatly said "I'm not going to answer the question."  I'm struggling to remember if any candidate in presidential electoral history has ever done that during a nationally televised debate.  Is this similar to Nancy Pelosi's old playbook on Obamacare when she told us we needed to pass the bill to find out what was in it?  You'll need to elect me to find out what I'll do as President.  That was a stunning moment.

Treasury reports rebut Biden's 'totally false' claims about Hunter's cash haul.  Democratic presidential nominee Joseph R. Biden flatly denied at Tuesday night's [9/29/2020] debate that his lawyer son took huge sums of money from corrupt oligarchs and Chinese communists during his vice presidency, but Treasury Department reports show that Hunter Biden did receive the money.  President Trump chose to make an issue of Hunter Biden's cash haul from Russia, Ukraine and China with the implication that unsavory figures were trying to buy Vice President Biden and the Obama administration.  "When somebody gets 3½ million dollars from the mayor of Moscow," Mr. Trump said.

The New York Times Fact Checks Biden On The Economy, Rates His Claim As 'False'.  [Scroll down]  In their post-debate fact-checking piece, they did the typical line of attack and picked out Trump's inaccuracies while giving Biden the soft glove treatment.  But on the former vice president's claim about the economy, The New York Times didn't let him get away with lying, as they did with the rest of the debate.  During the dumpster fire in the middle of a three-ring circus that occurred in Ohio last night, Biden responded to questions on Obama's economy by saying, "We left [Trump] a booming economy.  And he (Trump) caused the recession."  The Times easily debunked the candidate's claim, pointing out that "The economy was not 'booming' in the final year of Mr. Biden's time as vice president, and Mr. Trump did not "cause" the pandemic recession."

Dog whistle:
American Muslims praise Biden after he says 'inshallah' during Trump tax discussion.  American Muslims took to Twitter to praise Democratic nominee Joe Biden after he used the Arabic word "inshallah" during a discussion on President Trump's tax returns during the first presidential debate Tuesday night.  The remark came after the debate moderator, Fox News's Chris Wallace, asked Trump to comment on recent New York Times reporting that the president paid only $750 in federal income taxes per year in 2016 and 2017. [...] The former vice president then added, as his campaign later confirmed to NPR, "inshallah," an Arabic word that translates to "God willing" or "if God wills it."

The Editor says...
The New York Times article claiming that President Trump only paid $750 in taxes per year has been dubunked elsewhere. [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] It is a vicious canard.  A lie.  Unmitigated media dishonesty.  For Chris Wallace to bring up this article as if it were completely factual and uncontested is also thoroughly dishonest.

Wife of Boston Marathon hero said Biden touched her in 'an inappropriate and uncomfortable way'.  The wife of a Massachusetts transit police officer who was injured in the manhunt for the Boston Marathon bombers accused Joe Biden of touching her inappropriately and making a suggestive comment in 2014.  In two Facebook posts, one of which has since been deleted, Kim Donohue alleged that during a remembrance ceremony in Boston, a year after the April 2013 deadly bombing, then-Vice President Biden began "rubbing" her lower back.  "Look at those eyes, where did you get those eyes?" Donohue wrote.  "Anyone else as good looking as you in that family ... those eyes are mesmerizing, people must just do whatever you say."  In a separate post, this one made in July 2016, Donohue reiterated her claim that Biden "greeted me by rubbing my back in an inappropriate and uncomfortable way" then "pushed" her husband, Dic Donohue, who was shot in the leg by one of the Tsarnaev brothers, aside.

Biden: Let's Go to the Videotape.  Politicians, as they're apt to do, can pontificate all they wish, but If they've been around long enough, there are videos of speeches, presentations, and actions they've made over the years which are on record, and for the good or bad leave no ambiguity as to their veracity.  Such is the case with Joe Biden.  Since most of the links in this article are primary sources, the reader is urged to open them and judge for themselves the truthfulness of this man.

Hilarious and Great Moments When Trump Laid Biden Low in the First Debate.  From the outset, Trump was definitely on fire to counteract anything Biden said.  Trump was energized from beginning to end.  In fact, I don't think I've ever seen him quicker.  In fact, in some cases, it almost felt he was too smart and quick because the one thing I would have said is let Joe talk at points he was fading because then it would be more apparent to Americans who haven't watched Biden's decline for months.  But Trump has some great shots with that quickness including one toward the beginning of the debate.  At one point, Joe Biden ridiculously declared "I am the Democratic Party."  Trump was so quick he came back immediately with, "Not according to Harris you're not," a reference to Kamala Harris calling their potential administration a "Harris administration together with Joe Biden."

Hunter Biden's Business Partners Invested in Failed Fisker Automotive.  The business partners of Hunter Biden, son of former Vice President Joe Biden, were investors in Fisker Automotive, a company that received over $500 million in loan guarantees from the federal government before failing, Breitbart News can reveal. [...] What was unknown at the time was is that Biden's son, Hunter Biden, was in a business partnership with Devon Archer and Christopher Heinz, whose own investment funds would later be shown to have a stake in Fisker.  Breitbart News has reviewed documents showing that "Rosemont" funds were listed as investors in Fisker and creditors of the company.

Here's How Joe Biden is Cheating:  He has a medical device implanted in his skull.  It's called the Esteem Hearing Implant which you can learn about [elsewhere].  (Sources: [1] [2] [3] [4])  It's an implant that goes into the skull above the ear and it has two micro-wire probes that are injected into the nerves inside the ear canal.  It's FDA-approved and it uses bone conduction to enhance hearing (sound waves vibrate off the bones of the skull, and the wire probes send the signal directly into the ear, basically).  It's wireless and it's controlled by the push of a button, so the user can turn it on and off with a little device that fits in your pocket.  When Joe Biden gets confused, he reaches into his pocket and turns on the implant.  Whoever is talking to him on the other end instructs him to smile and then starts relaying answers to him until he gets back on track.  Joe hears it because the implant receives a wireless signal and vibrates the bones in his skull.  The body language experts have also noticed that whenever Biden is receiving instructions through the implant, he cannot make eye contact with the person asking him a question.  This is a natural response.  Even a young, healthy and spry young mind like Donald Trump's cannot receive communication input from two sources at once.  Joe Biden has to look away from the speaker in order to listen to his handlers, which is why he always looks down when he's being asked a question.  He's not thinking or listening intently; he's receiving instructions from his handlers on which set of talking points to rattle off.

The Editor says...
With the stakes as high as they are, it would seem to be worth the risks to [1] find out what frequency Joe's handlers are on (which might be near 460 MHz or 910 MHz, if not in the Bluetooth band at 2450 MHz) and jam it, or [2] overpower his handlers' signal with a high-powered transmitter and provide Joe with [A] utter gibberish, which he would then repeat on national TV, or [B]  just white noise, which would put him in a panic.  Technically, either of these actions would be illegal, but even if one were to be caught in the act of interfering with Biden's earpiece, it would at least prove that Biden was being coached in real time, also known as cheating.  Mrs. Editor suggests option #3:  Find the frequency on which Biden is receiving his cues, record the audio, along with the debate audio and video, and take that to the national news media.  Option 3 would have been legal 40 years ago, but today, I'm not so sure.

Was Joe Biden Wearing A Wire Last Night?  Video Footage Shows He May Have!  Leave it to the internet to find the little details that spawn a thousand questions and a thousand more conspiracy theories.  Many Twitter video and image posts last night seem to show Joe Biden with a lot of hardware during last night's debate.  In the video above, a wire is shown in his jacket as Biden seems to be trying to hide it while on camera.  Other still shots showed some strange hardware on his right hand near his wrist.  [Video clip]

No class:
'Shut up,' 'clown,' 'fool,' 'liar' — the vile debate spewings of Joe Biden.  Joe Biden was in some kind of foul, putrid mode at the debate last night.  Many people have cited memorable lines from the contentious political slugfest, but the lines that stand out to me are the grotesquely disrespectful ad hominem insults Biden directed at the president of the United States. [...] Trump can give as good as he gets, but he made no such ad hominems comparable to those, there was one part of the debate where he called Biden 'not smart,' but at least he had some academic records to back it up with.  In fact, in all of his oppositional statements to Biden, he had some kind of fact, he wasn't just pulling disembodied insults out as Biden did.  Biden had no such backing for his insults, some of the most disgusting words hurled at a president of the United States to his face ever heard.

FACT CHECK: Did Hunter Biden Get Kicked Out of the Military for Drugs? (Spoiler:  Yes).  During the first presidential debate Joe Biden denied President Trump's charge that his son, Hunter Biden, was dishonorably discharged from the military for drug use.  It is unknown what kind of discharge it was, as it is only listed as "administrative discharge" which can also include dishonorable discharge.  But whether the actual dismissal was listed as honorable or not, what Hunter Biden did in the military is not what anyone would categorize as exemplary service.

Observations.  I missed most of the debate last night, because it occurred during the dinner hour out here on the left coast, and dinner is a sacred institution in our household.  But I saw enough to see why everyone thinks it stunk.  I did, however, flip around to take in some of the post game show on several news channels, and I was struck by how uniformly glum the liberal network news types were.  The subtext here was that Biden was weak in the face of Trump's boorishness.  The fact that so many media figures are saying the next two debates should be canceled is quite telling.  I'm guessing they know Biden is going to wilt under the onslaught.

Two-Thirds Of Spanish-Speaking Telemundo Voters Said Trump Won The First Debate.  A Telemundo poll of the network's Spanish-speaking viewers found that two-thirds thought President Donald Trump won the first debate on Tuesday night against former Vice President Joe Biden.  A photo of the poll during Telemundo's post-debate coverage shows 66 percent thought Trump won, while only 34 percent chose Biden as the winner.

Joe Biden Just Promised No Coal Power Plants Will Ever Be Built In America If He Wins.  Democratic Presidential Nominee Joe Biden promised at the first presidential debate in Cleveland on Tuesday night that he will prohibit the creation of any new power plants that require fossil fuels if he is elected.  "Nobody's going to build another coal-fired plant in America.  No one is going to build another oil-fired plant in America," Biden said.  "They're going to move to renewable energy."  Biden instead suggested that a complete move to renewable energy would be the cheaper and more effective option, stumbling over his words and mixing up which number point he was on as he tried to explain himself.

Biden's very soft on crime, dismisses Antifa as just an idea.  Some of the lying that Joe Biden engaged in tonight was quite frustrating and Wallace was weak as a moderator, protective of Joe Biden who managed to stay upright and get his thoughts out.  One of the issues on which Biden is extremely weak is law and order.  President Trump scored points on law and order.  Biden had no reply to his silence about the violence in the demonstrations and in criminal matters.  Biden says officials in Portland and Oregon could take care of the violence if Trump would stay out of it.  What a major mistake and so wrong!  That needs to become an ad.  Wallace asked Biden what 'reimagining policing' means and does he support Black Lives Matter calling for defunding the police.  Biden's "reimagining" policing answer was total left-wing blather.

Trump Challenges Biden To 'Name One Law Enforcement Group' That Supports Him.  He Doesn't.  President Donald Trump slammed Democratic candidate Joe Biden for his apparent lack of support from police unions and other law enforcement groups after hundreds of riots shook American cities over the summer.  Trump and Biden met on a debate stage in Cleveland, Ohio, on Tuesday night for the first presidential debate of the 2020 campaign, hosted by Fox News and moderated by anchor Chris Wallace.  Wallace raised the issue of the future of policing, pressing the candidates directly on their thoughts about activists' calls to replace police departments with "community" policing.

6 Highlights From Trump-Biden Debate.  [#6] Law and Order:  Trump talked about the riots in numerous cities across the country.  "The people of this country want and demand law and order and you're afraid to even say it," Trump said.  When Trump pressed him, Biden said he was for law and order.  However, later Biden said, "Antifa is an idea, not an organization."

Joe Biden disavows Green New Deal co-sponsored by Kamala Harris.  On Tuesday [9/29/2020], during the first (and hopefully last) 2020 presidential debate, Biden stated outright that he does not support the Green New Deal, a preposterous multitrillion-dollar plan to make the American economy more environmentally friendly.  "The Green New Deal will pay for itself as we move forward," Biden alleged.  "We're not going to build plants that, in fact, are great polluting plants."  Moderator Chris Wallace interjected for clarity, "But do you support the Green New Deal?"  "No," Biden answered definitively.  "I don't support the Green New Deal.  I support the Biden plan that I put forward."  Well, this is awkward, and for a couple of reasons.  First, it seems strange to disavow the Green New Deal after alleging specifically that it will "pay for itself as we move forward."

Biden Can't Name Single Law Enforcement Group That Supports Him.  Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden failed to name a single law enforcement group that supports his campaign during Tuesday night's [9/29/2020] debate.  "He doesn't have any law support — no law enforcement support, almost nothing," President Donald Trump said.  "Who do you have?  Name one group that supports you."  "We don't have time," Biden responded after calling Trump's accusation "not true."  The nation's largest police union — the Fraternal Order of Police — endorsed Trump in early September, saying the president "has shown time after time that he supports our law enforcement officers and understands the issues our members face every day."

Pre-debate predictions:
Joe Biden Is the Winner of the First Presidential Debate.  Sorry for the scare title, I just want to get you ready for the headlines tomorrow. [...] The big question is what will happen with Biden.  Will he be jacked up on modafinil and B12 shots?  Adderall?  Cocaine?  Ritalin?  Jolt cola?  Biden refused a drug test which is kind of a silly thing for a presidential debate but why not call Trump on his bluff?  I think we know why, Joe is juiced.

The Editor says...
If Mr. Biden has to use performance-enhancing drugs to survive a debate, will he be hooked on those drugs for his four years as president?

'I'm Not Going To Answer That Question': Biden Refuses To Say If He Will Pack The Supreme Court.  Joe Biden refused to say whether or not he would pack the Supreme Court when questioned during Tuesday night's [9/29/2020] presidential debate. [...] "He's not answering the question," President Donald Trump responded.  "I'm not going to answer that question because," Biden said before Trump interjected, "Why wouldn't you answer that question?"  "Would you shut up, man?" Biden responded before debate moderator Chris Wallace told the candidates that they were moving on to the next segment.

The Editor says...
Chris Wallace, and many other left-leaning TV "moderators," always feel the urgent need to move on to the next topic, change the subject, or go to a commercial break whenever a Republican gets some traction and momentum.

Slow Joe's So-So Show.  Trump knew going in that moderator Chris Wallace would step on pretty much all of his answers and bail Joe Biden out whenever he could.  And because of that obvious expectation, Trump would harass Biden and flummox Wallace for the full 90 minutes.  It didn't matter whether Trump looked obnoxious in doing it — he was one against two, and he'd have to hold his own the best he could.  Those expectations were met, and Wallace held his thumb on the scale every bit as much as Trump's supporters figured he would.  That was one factor that allowed Biden to survive the first debate.  But he couldn't win it.  Joe Biden can't win a debate.  Not anymore.

The debate was no disaster for Biden — but Trump won.  For his part, Joe Biden told a lot of fibs.  He brought back the old saw about the President saying there were 'good people on both sides' after the Charlottesville protest.  Biden omitted to note that the second part of his sentence where he said 'I'm not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists.'  Joe also reprised the recent canard that the President referred to American soldiers buried in France as 'losers' and 'suckers'.  No he didn't. [...] Joe Biden said a lot of outrageous things over the course of the evening.  He wildly misrepresented Trump's record and his own.  Particularly amusing was his little riff about the importance of 'buying American', as if that were not a centerpiece of Trump's America First policy.  Biden lost out on the Green New Deal — he's for it — law and order — he's against it — and the whole discussion about race and energy.  Trump would have done himself a favor by letting Biden do more to hang himself with his own words.

The debate:  Trump was great, Chris Wallace was a dreadful disgrace.  Chris Wallace's overt defense of Joe Biden throughout the debate on Tuesday night was so obvious, so blatant, he should be proscribed from ever "moderating" a debate again.  Wallace's performance was as Biden's protector, his advocate, and that is undeniable.  He stepped in at every moment Biden seemed lost: court-packing, lack of support of law enforcement, and Hunter's criminality.  The debate was so poorly managed.  The questions were designed to aid Biden, to coddle him.  No wonder Trump felt duty-bound to interrupt.  Trump was debating both Wallace and Biden and only one of them is sentient.  Wallace's intent was clear — sabotage Trump.  Wallace succeeded only in looking like the stooge he is. [...] Wallace even brought up the Charlottesville charge but did not admit it was a manufactured lie without giving Trump the time to deny the lie.  Wallace completely ignored and tried to derail Trump's bringing up Hunter Biden's criminal corruption.  Why was that not a viable subject for discussion?

Trump camp seeks extra debate rule:  Third party inspectors to look for electronic devices in candidates' ears.  President Trump is asking for an additional ground rule ahead of Tuesday night's first presidential debate between himself and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.  But the Biden campaign is rejecting it.  Fox News has learned that the president's re-election campaign wants the Biden campaign to allow a third party to inspect the ears of each debater for electronic devices or transmitters.  The president has consented to this kind of inspection, but a source said the Biden campaign has declined the ear check.

More Details on Biden's Desperate Debate Moves:  Turns out It's Even Worse Than First Reported.  The Biden team is asking for two breaks in the ninety-minute debate.  But according to Fox's Bret Baier, the Commission in charge of the debates has set it as ninety minutes without a break and the Trump team is refusing any change.  We reported that the Trump team wanted to check to make sure that there weren't going to be any earpieces or electronic devices involved helping Joe Biden but that Biden was refusing the check.  That was problematic enough.  But it turns out it's even worse than that, according to another report.  According to Ebony Bowden of the New York Post, the Biden team actually agreed to the inspection for earpieces several days ago, but is now backing out of it.

What Biden Wants and What He's Refusing Show How Desperate He Is.  How is Joe Biden going to make it through the debate tonight?  Many people have been wondering given the decline that has been evident over the past several months of the campaign.  Fortunately for Biden, it's only a ninety-minute debate which is not a particularly long time and you would think he might be able to handle even with the decline.  But astonishingly, even given how short it is, Biden's team is now reportedly fighting for two breaks, one every thirty minutes, to which the Trump team has so far not agreed, according to Fox producer Pat Ward.

Joe Biden Gave 1.5% of Income to Charity in 2019; Trump Gave Entire Salary to Government.  Former Vice President Joe Biden and his wife, Dr. Jill Biden, gave 1.5% of their income to charity in 2019, records show.  The Bidens released several years of their tax returns ahead of the first presidential debate on Tuesday, on the heels of a New York Times story on Sunday [9/27/2020] that claimed Trump had paid no net taxes in some recent years due to business losses.  (The Times noted that Trump had paid millions to the U.S. Treasury but rolled that forward to future tax years.  It also found no evidence of any links to Russia, as Democrats had long claimed, nor any links to other media-fueled conspiracy theories.)  The Bidens' adjusted gross income was $985,233 in 2019.  They gave $14,700 to charity.

No Stamina?  Joe Biden's Break Requests Could Rehash Old Trump Attack Line.  Joe Biden has called a lid before 10 AM close to a dozen times in the past two weeks.  You can't run a country like this, Joe.  And we all know this wasn't over debate preparation; you admitted you hadn't even started on September 23.  No matter what happens, barring a stroke on the debate stage, Biden will be declared the winner, and for now, we should expect him to not deliver a total applesauce brain performance, but this is a bit eyebrow-raising.  It's not like these are herculean parameters we have here, just two guys standing there, socially-distanced — and debating.  And Joe Biden apparently needs a break.  Also, what's the deal with the earpiece inspection?  Joe agreed to it and is now backing out?

Joe Biden's Campaign Requests Breaks Every 30 Minutes During Tonight's First Debate.  The Biden campaign want breaks every 30 minutes during the debate tonight!  So far the Trump campaign has not agreed to this last minute request by the Biden Campaign!  This casts doubts on Joe Biden's health and stamina.

Biden rejects request to inspect his ears prior to debate, Trump campaign says.  The Trump campaign said Democrat Joseph R. Biden refused their request to have a third party inspect his ears for electronic devices prior to Tuesday night's first presidential debate.  The Biden campaign, in turn, said Team Trump requested that the debate moderator not mention the number of Americans who have died from COVID-19.  The jockeying came hours before both candidates squared off for the first of their three debates.  "Joe Biden's handlers several days ago agreed to a pre-debate inspection for electronic earpieces but today abruptly reversed themselves and declined," said Trump campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh.

Three Things Trump Should Do to Own Biden in Tonight's Debate.  This debate is expected to be the most-watched political event in American history.  Between broadcast and cable TV, radio broadcast and live streaming, over 100 million people should be tuning in to this historic event. [...] If you listen to conventional wisdom in D.C. and the media, you'd think that by just showing up and not mistakenly believing he's at his grandchild's birthday party Biden will have won the night.  Stop that.  Joe Biden has not really accomplished anything in his 47 years in public office.  He hasn't built anything; he hasn't created jobs, he hasn't jump-started an economy, he hasn't improved conditions for the American people, he hasn't really done anything except one thing:  He has discussed and debated politics and policy.

Joe Biden Exploited S-Corporation Loophole to Avoid Payroll Tax.  The establishment media is all aflutter Monday [9/28/2020] after a New York Times story over the weekend about incumbent GOP President Donald Trump's tax records, but it turns out Democrat candidate former Vice President Joe Biden used a series of tax code loopholes to avoid paying hundreds of thousands of dollars in taxes over the years.  Back in August, the Wall Street Journal's Chris Jacobs exposed how the Biden family structured what is called an "S-Corp" to avoid paying hundreds of thousands of dollars in taxes.  "How the Bidens Dodged the Payroll Tax," was Jacobs' headline on Aug. 10.

Jill Biden Is the Candidate Now, and Everyone Knows It.  Yesterday [9/28/2020], Joe Biden once again called a "lid" before most people in the country clock in for work.  That's become a pattern over the last month, with him taking off nearly half the days that a candidate would normally be campaigning their tail off.  Even then, some of the days he hasn't called a lid consist of him being photographed from afar by reporters as he goes to church and rushes back home.  Is Biden having good and bad days, as is common with those who suffer from dementia?  That certainly seems possible, as the explanations being given are getting more and more strained.  But another odd aspect of all this has also emerged.  Jill Biden, Joe's wife, has essentially become the candidate.  She's doing interviews and rallies while Biden continues to hide in his basement.  Is she immune from the virus or something?

Mr. Nowhere Man.  At every stop President Trump is met with thousands of cheering supporters.  By contrast, Biden's appearances have been a lot like hosting the neighbors in lawn chairs, and certainly with no questioning from real reporters.  Is this any way to run a campaign?  Democrats are starting to think not.  According to polling, there aren't many who think Biden could do a good job of running the country.  In the latest polling voters say that Trump will do a better job on the economy, and the economy is the top issue in this as in previous elections.  Biden supporters aren't voting for Biden — they just want to vote against Trump.  If it weren't for the coronavirus and the slowdown it brought about, Biden wouldn't have a chance.  Unfortunately, he does have a chance.

Joe Biden:  Unfit for Office.  Never in American history has a major political party nominated two candidates for president and vice-president who are so manifestly unfit for the elective offices they seek.  Joe Biden, the corrupt, unaccomplished 47-year career politician, with a reputation of having been a proud segregationist, an unabashed plagiarist and liar, a resolute tale-teller, and a serial flip-flopper, is pretending to head up a radical social-democratic ticket for President of the United States that includes as his running mate the ambitious, disagreeable junior senator from California:  Kamala Harris.  Biden, Obama's vice-presidential lackey for eight years (a period of unprecedented corruption and personal enrichment for both men), has always craved power and attention.  But unfortunately for Joe, his mouth, hands, and nose have consistently undermined his presidential ambitions.

25 Questions Joe Biden Should Be Asked in the Debate.  Many of these questions were suggested by this author last month, but because they remain unanswered, I offer them again in the hope that Tuesday's debate moderator, Chris Wallace, will question the Democratic nominee with the same enthusiasm he has shown for questioning President Trump.  [#1] A Senate investigative report issued this month found that your son, Hunter Biden, and his family and business partners "received millions of dollars from foreign nationals with questionable backgrounds."  Among the sums they received while you were vice president include over $4 million from the corruption-plagued Ukrainian energy company Burisma to your son and his business associate, a $3.5 million wire transfer to your son from the wife of the former mayor of Moscow, and "millions of dollars in cash flow" from your son's business associations with "Chinese nationals linked to the Communist government and the People's Liberation Army."  In light of all of this, we must ask:  Why did members of your family get so many lucrative business opportunities overseas while you were vice president?

The Progressive Medusa.  Given its redistributionist creed, socialism cannot afford to be patent and honest.  If socialism were transparent, it never would gain majority support.  Joe Biden cannot talk about the Electoral College or court packing, unequivocally condemn the violence in our urban centers, discuss the Green New Deal, name his likely Supreme Court appointments, be honest about his plans for fracking, or explain his views on the borders, because he is now owned lock, stock and barrel by the hard Left whose agendas were rejected even in his own Democratic primaries.

Trump, Biden campaign clash on call for pre-debate 'drug test'.  President Trump on Monday [9/28/2020] taunted Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden for effectively refusing his request for a pre-debate drug test.  "Joe Biden just announced that he will not agree to a Drug Test.  Gee, I wonder why?" Trump tweeted ahead of his first debate with Biden in Cleveland on Tuesday.  Biden did not directly refuse Trump's drug test request, but his campaign made clear he would not consent to one ahead of the event in Cleveland.

Yes, Joe Biden is compromised by his family's shady foreign dealings.  The release of a joint report by the Senate committees on homeland security and finance raised important questions about obviously unethical foreign profiteering by members of the Biden family.  In particular, former Vice President Joe Biden's ne'er-do-well son Hunter received a remarkable amount of money from highly suspect foreign entities, including ones controlled by the Chinese government.  On at least one occasion, the elder Biden appears to have directly facilitated his son's tawdry dealings.  On another, the current Democratic presidential nominee ignored an obvious appearance of a conflict of interest that compromised the moral authority of U.S. diplomacy.

The Times is proud that it released Trump's tax returns, but it shouldn't be.  The [New York] Times' intrepid reporters are not interested in the fact that Joe Biden used his political connections to enrich his family, especially Hunter.  They don't write that (to date) there is unrefuted evidence that Biden blocked the new Ukrainian government's efforts to root out corruption by withholding American money until Ukraine stopped investigating a corporation that paid Hunter for doing nothing.  You'd think that a major news outlet would find that intriguing a story involving political corruption and foreign meddling, but the Times has given it a hard pass.

Joe Biden Told the Senate in 1991 He Would Probably be "Dead and Gone" by 2020.  Then-Senator Joe Biden told the senate in 1991 that he will likely be "dead and gone by 2020."  Biden made these remarks during the senate confirmation hearing for justice Clarence Thomas. [...] Biden thought he would be dead and gone by 2020 and here he is running for President of the United States from his basement because he is too feeble to hit the campaign trail.

Has Biden Lost His Mind?  He Just Compared Trump to Joseph Goebbels.  Democratic nominee Joe Biden said he is running for president in order to "restore the soul of America," but he's just another lying, slimy politician intent on demonizing his opponent, President Donald Trump.  While Nazi comparisons are tragically common in politics, most presidential candidates have avoided comparing their opponents to Adolf Hitler or Nazi propagandist Paul Joseph Goebbels.

Democrats Are Truly Sick People.  [Scroll down]  I'm not disgusted by his growing senility; he can't do anything about that.  I am bothered by the lengths to which his handlers will go and the lies they will tell to hide it.  The claim that he's not campaigning or giving interviews so he can do debate prep is laughable.  Aside from being a lifeguard who enjoyed having little black kids pet his leg hair, Joe Biden has done nothing but politics his entire adult life.  If he needs to study up on where he currently stands on the issues, he has no business driving a car let alone running the Executive Branch.

Jill Biden shuts down obedient Jake Tapper after question about Joe's 'gaffes': You can't even go there'.  Jill Biden, wife of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, waved off a question about her husband's frequent gaffes from CNN's Jake Tapper during a segment Monday, informing him he "can't go there."  "Your husband has been known to make the occasional gaffe," Tapper began, before being cut off.  "Oh, you cannot even go there," Jill Biden responded, as Tapper chuckled.  "After Donald Trump you cannot even say the word 'gaffe.'"

Jake Tapper Backs Down on Pursuing Biden's Gaffes After Wife Jill Objects.  Do you know how to keep CNN's Jake Tapper from pursuing a particular line of questioning?  Merely object vigorously.  Actually that's not quite right.  For this to actually work, the person objecting must be a Democrat.  Especially if the husband of the Democrat is running for president.  Such was the case on Sunday's [9/27/2020] State of the Union when Jake Tapper was interviewing Jill Biden and brought up the subject of her husband's notorious gaffes.  This caused Jill to quickly shut Tapper down with her vigorous objections as you can see in this video which was widely mocked on Twitter.

Joe Biden's History Of Race Baiting.  On July 2, 1986, many years before the ever-frail and stumbling Joe Biden lost control of his mental capacity to deliver coherent sentences, Biden spoke at the 77th Annual NAACP Convention. [...] Biden began his speech by proclaiming to a mostly black audience that "When I was 17 years old, I participated in sit-ins to desegregate restaurants and movie houses in Wilmington, Delaware."  The only problem is Biden never participated in sit-ins.  He falsely claimed that he organized a walkout of a restaurant called the Charcoal Pit, except for the fact that the black student who was refused service at the time said that Biden and the other white students who were with him "weren't aware of what happened."  Biden also falsely claimed that he picketed the last segregated movie theater in Wilmington, Delaware in 1965.  Yet, according to the book Historic Theaters of Delaware, the Rialto theater that Biden supposedly picketed, had already begun admitting black patrons in May 1963, meaning that Biden would have been protesting for a right that had already existed for blacks two years earlier.

Study: Biden's Foreign Policy Circle Has History of Failed Predictions.  Several of the foreign-policy hands most likely to join a Biden administration have been "consistently wrong" in their prognostications about the Trump administration's global diplomacy, including their predictions that Trump's hardline policies would ignite war in the Middle East and make Israel less safe, a new report says.  The Democratic Alliance Initiative, a new conservative foreign-policy group, recently issued an investigation into leading liberal voices who are likely to play a central role in a Biden administration.  It details how these so-called experts have consistently predicted catastrophe and conflict across the globe as a result of President Donald Trump's foreign-policy decisions, particularly toward Iran and its allies.

Delaware State University denies Joe Biden was a student there.  Joe Biden said last year that he kicked off his academic career at Delaware State University, a historically black university, but the institution has now denied that claim.  Biden made the declaration before the South Carolina Democratic primary — which he won by a landslide — during an October 2019 town hall event at Wilson High School in Florence[.]  'I got started out of an HBCU, Delaware State — now, I don't want to hear anything negative about Delaware State.  They're my folks,' Biden told the crowd.

Joe Biden Says He Could Stay at Home During the Pandemic because Black Woman Stacked Grocery Shelf.  This didn't get much attention but it does display what Joe Biden thinks of black people.  During a recent unscripted presser Joe Biden told the audience the reason he was able to stay sequestered at home during the pandemic was because a black woman stocked the grocery shelf.  [Video clip]

Biden Brain Freeze:  Joe Claims He Was Elected to the Senate '180 Years Ago'.  During a speech to the U.S Conference of Mayors on Saturday, Joe Biden claimed he was elected to the Senate "180 years ago."  [Video clip]  He read the line with a chuckle and did not correct himself.  If that was true, Biden would have been in the Senate in 1840 with the likes of John C. Calhoun, James Buchanan, Franklin Pierce, and Henry Clay.  On Friday, Biden made an appearance on MSNBC, and appeared to lose his train of thought and host Stephanie Ruhle bailed him out:  [Video clip]

Biden Talks About Imaginary People, Says He's Been in the Senate 180 Years and Has to Be Helped by MSNBC Host.  While President Donald Trump was nominating Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court today, Joe Biden was being interviewed from his home by MSNBC's Stephanie Ruhle and trying simply to answer questions coherently.  And failing.  During the interview, Biden tried to attack President Donald Trump, saying that only 1% of the money in the Paycheck Protection Plan had been paid out.  This, of course, was false, as billions has gone out and it's had to be replenished because the initial amount was given out.  He realized what he was saying was wrong, but he still couldn't remember or figure out what he was talking about.

When will 'Basement Biden' get in the game?  Less than six weeks before the election, one of the most profound disappointments among some of Joe Biden's supporters is that he doesn't even seem to be trying. [...] Yet don't allow some media reports to fool you.  I try to watch most of the candidates' events, and Biden is not the confused, befuddled old man glued to the teleprompter that some edited videos make him out to be.  I, for one, anticipate he will largely appear informed and calm during the debates, as he does at his campaign appearances.  So why, exactly, the low profile?

Jill Biden Speaks to a Handful of Supporters in Maine While Feeble Joe Naps in His Basement.  Jill Biden on Friday afternoon spoke to a handful of supporters in Orono, Maine while her feeble husband napped in his Delaware basement. [...] Joe is napping in his Delaware basement with 39 days to go until the election.

Biden continues to spout nonsense and forget things.  There's some debate going on in conservative circles about whether Biden will show up at the debate and, if he does, whether he'll be an incoherent mess or unexpectedly competent.  The debate will continue thanks to Biden's Saturday performance.  The news yielded two epic Slow Joe moments, a Hitler insult, and a lie.  Joe, however, is assuring anyone who will listen that he'll do fine at the debate because Trump is "not that smart."  Whatever they're pumping into Joe, it must be good stuff.

Which Biden Shows Up Tuesday?  If this is the most important election in decades, this is its most important moment.  Thus far, this campaign has been a referendum on Trump; Tuesday's debate will be one on Biden.  Its outcome depends on which Biden shows up. [...] In conventional campaigns, debates are challengers' opportunities to elevate themselves to the level of their incumbent opponent.  In this most unconventional of campaigns, it presents Biden more risk than opportunity.

Paul Sending Hunter Biden Report to DOJ for Criminal Referral.  Asked about his thoughts on the Senate Report on Hunter Biden, Senator Rand Paul said[,] "I think riding on Air Force Two and doing business is illegal.  I think that is against the law, and probably a felony," Paul explained.  "I think it's illegal to take money from a Russian politician's wife, $3.5 million.  Was it reported accurately?  I think the only way to determine the actual legality of this is to have it referred to the Department of Justice," he added.  "So, I'm going to send the report over.  I don't know if the whole committee will vote for it, but I'm sending the report, tomorrow, to the Department of Justice, and we're asking for a criminal referral."

Why is Biden REALLY hiding?  [Thread reader]  I think one of three things might be happening: [#1] He is debate prepping.  But it's NOT going well.  I suspect he will "have" a topic and a few minutes later be totally vacant about what he just prepped.  I'm guessing they are going nuts trying to give him ANYTHING that he can say without exposing himself as totally demented.  [#2] They are looking for a way out.  [#3] They are seeing the real polling and are paralyzed.  As I say in my column today, they are trying to do an "About Face" from the VBMs to vote-in-person and it ain't working.  For one thing, they terrified their own voters of the China Virus.  Now they can't get their own voters out of their homes.

Joe Biden, the father of 'Borking'.  Supreme Court nomination hearings have gone from serene to savage, thanks largely to Joe Biden.  As head of the Senate Judiciary Committee, he presided over the infamous Robert Bork hearings.  His smearing of Bork for his original-intent judicial philosophy transformed hearings for Supreme Court nominees into bloody ideological battles.  Henceforth, all conservative nominees were subjected to "Borking."  Brutal to Bork from the start, Biden treated him not as a serious judge but as a stooge for what Biden called the "Reagan-Meese" agenda.  Biden's transparently unfair treatment of Bork was so bad even The Washington Post editorialized against Biden at the time: [...]

Biden Foundation Promoted Transgenderism For 18-Month-Old Babies.  The 2018 initiative, called the "As You Are" campaign, centered on a map tracking LGBTQ "acceptance stories" across the country.  It was spearheaded by Biden's eponymous foundation, which has been described as "further[ing] the work the Bidens did over eight years in the Obama administration and cement[ing] the former vice president's more than four decade legacy in public life."  Of the nearly 500 individuals highlighted, many were children under the age of 18, with one account even chronicling a "gender nonconforming" 18-month-old.  One mother submitted her story to the Biden Foundation about her six-year-old transgender child and saw it promoted by the group, despite declaring her daughter "gender nonconforming" since 18-months-old.

Jill campaigns for husband Joe before an itty bitty crowd.  Sleepy Joe has taken a lot of days off this month.  The AP disingenuously calls it a "low-key campaign style" but admits it concerns some Democrats.  Biden made 12 visits outside of Delaware since August 12 and President Trump made 24 visits to 17 states.  The NY Times dishonestly claims that Slow Joe's inability to put sentences together is a "stutter."  Neither Joe nor Kamala Harris are answering many reporters' questions and when they do, the questions are softball.

When Biden calls a 'lid,' Trump starts mocking.  If calling a "lid" enters the mainstream American lexicon, this will be the week it all started.  Joe Biden called a lid — the arcane term reporters use when a politician is done traveling for the day — at 1:02 p.m.  Friday [9/25/2020]; 9:20 a.m.  Thursday; 9:22 a.m.  Tuesday and 8:34 a.m.  Saturday. [...] Trump is keeping close watch on Biden's movements.  In Atlanta, he noted Biden had returned home, again.  "Hey champ, if I lose to a guy — that's like you losing to a fighter that, you know, hasn't worked out in the last six months.  This guy never goes out!  It's terrible, huh?" Trump asked, reviving his "low-energy" critiques of Biden.  "You better make sure I win.  I'm gonna be very embarrassed, I lost to a guy that didn't campaign!"

Andrew Cuomo's guest appearance in the Hunter Biden scandals.  New Yorkers should take special note of one part of the Senate report on Hunter Biden's shady business dealings — because one of his wealthy patrons got "economic development" tax breaks from our own Gov. Andrew Cuomo.  Yes, the main implications are national:  Hunter got millions from foreign sources while his dad was veep, and though Obama officials feared conflicts, they did nothing.  Records "show potential criminal activity between Hunter Biden, his family and his associates" and Ukrainian, Russian, Kazakh and Chinese nationals, the report says.  And the younger Biden sent "thousands" to folks who've been tied to "transactions consistent with human trafficking" or have possible associations with the porn industry or prostitution.  Ugly stuff.

Senate Report:  Hunter Biden's Law Firm Took Nearly $6M from Chinese Oligarch.  Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden's son's law firm received nearly six million from a Chinese oligarch who sought power and influence in Washington, D.C.  A bombshell report by the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee and Senate Finance Committee details numerous cases in which Biden's son, Hunter Biden, and family members have deep ties to the Chinese communist government, Russia, Ukraine, and Kazakhstan.

Hunter Biden's Millions.  Last year Joe Biden made it crystal clear that his son Hunter's myriad business dealings were not a topic of conversation between father and son.  When Peter Doocy, a Fox News reporter, asked the former vice president about Hunter's business deals, the elder Biden replied: "I have never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings."  He continued: "I know Trump deserves to be investigated.  He is violating every basic norm of a president.  You should be asking him why he is on the phone with a foreign leader, trying to intimidate a foreign leader.  You should be looking at Trump."  Yet, a report released by Senate Republicans on Wednesday detailed the web of foreign business entanglements threaded by Hunter Biden, connecting the former vice president's son with oligarchs and politically connected Russians, Ukrainians, Chinese, and Kazakhs, all while his father served as Barack Obama's point man on foreign policy.  Despite Joe Biden's insistence he has never discussed with Hunter his business dealings, testimony from Amos Hochstein, a former Obama State Department official, states otherwise.

Jim Jordan Demands Answers from FBI Director on Whether He Is Probing Hunter Biden Allegations.  Representative Jim Jordan on Thursday sent a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray demanding that he provide answers on whether his agency is investigating allegations against Hunter Biden that appeared in a report by Senate Republicans this week.  The report by investigators for the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs along with the Senate Finance Committee contained serious allegations of "potential criminal activity" against Hunter Biden, son of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, including that he allegedly received a wire payment of $3.5 million from the wife of the former mayor of Moscow.  The 87-page report also claimed that the younger Biden had business associations with Chinese nationals linked to the Chinese Communist government and the People's Liberation Army and made payments to women who appeared to be linked to an Eastern European prostitution or human trafficking ring.

Senate's Report On Biden Further Exposes The Absurdity Of Trump's Impeachment.  It was this time last year that House Democrats launched a formal impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump after all prior efforts to overturn the results of the 2016 election failed.  The drawn-out head-hunt from the same party promising to impeach the president since before inauguration finally centered on a July phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.  It was during this conversation that an anonymous whistleblower, eventually identified by Real Clear Investigations as Eric Ciaramella, an Obama White House holdover on the National Security Council, accused Trump of demanding his Ukrainian counterpart launch a series of investigations into the Biden family in exchange for nearly $400 million in military aid in a claimed quid pro quo.

Momentum Trump : Over 187,000 Supporters Attend Trump Rallies Since Labor Day to Joe Biden's 84.  In the 2016 election we kept track of event attendance after the Party Conventions for both candidate Trump and Crooked Hillary.  We did this because the future President was setting records at seemingly every venue he visited while Hillary could barely fill half a high school gymnasium.  By mid-August we determined that President Trump had 10 times the number of attendees at his rallies than Hillary did during the same time.  This year it's worse.

Anyone have any idea who that Moscow widow was, who handed Hunter Biden $3.5 million?  When Hunter Biden took that $3.5 million in money transfers from Yelena Baturina, Russia's richest woman, the media lapsed into sudden incuriosity — very bizarre, given that it spent four years yelling about President Trump and his supposed "Russian collusion."  Here was real Russian collusion, and the blue checks went blue screen. [...] Was this just any Russian oligarch that young Hunter Biden with his dad as vice president, took the big payment from?  Nope, it was a person associated with political corruption and lots of pocket-lining.  Take a gander at who her now late husband was: [...]

Joe Biden's 'lid' must be shifting his circadian rhythms to overcome 'sundowning'.  If you suspect that Joe Biden is suffering from dementia and that the very common symptoms known as "sundowning" are part of his illness, then his "mystifying" campaign schedule starts to make sense. [...] I don't think the "lid" is mysterious at all.  The explanation that best satisfies the observable data is that Biden is systematically shifting his circadian rhythms so his body will behave as if it were 9 A.M. or so when the clock in Cleveland, where the debate will be held, reads 9 P.M.

The Editor says...
If that is the case, what does Joe Biden do all night?  Or I should say, what are his handlers making him do all night to stay awake?

Biden in Ukraine Part II.  It turns out that there was plenty of concern within the Obama-Biden administration in respect of the dealings of the Vice President's son, Hunter, in Ukraine.  Not to mention the younger Biden's dealings with Communist Chinese nationals.  The tale is outlined in the new report released today [9/23/2020] by the Senate Homeland Security Committee and Finance Committee, chaired by Ron Johnson of Wisconsin and Charles Grassley of Iowa. [...] What makes it all so shocking is the contrast between the blitheness of the Democrats view of Mr. Biden's threats to Ukraine and the hysterical reaction with which they greeted Mr. Trump's — and impeached him for it.  Particularly given Hunter Biden's work for Burisma.  The Senate report just released pegs at $4 million the amount of money that Burisma paid for the consulting services of the younger Mr. Biden and his partner.  All this while Vice President Biden was the public face of the Obama administration's policy in respect of Ukraine.  It clearly bothered the Obama administration.  The Senate found two officials who expressed their concern — one to officials in the vice president's office, another directly to Vice President Biden and to Hunter.  Biden fils, insisting he did nothing wrong, has confessed to using "poor judgment."

The Hunter Biden Problem.  Joe Biden likes to say that Donald Trump's intemperate behavior is "corrupting" America's children.  It is a curious charge coming from a pol whose own son, Hunter, is a walking display of corruption.  Lost on Biden is the irony that while he worried about the bad "example" Trump might set for America's children, his own child was self-destructing.  It appears that Joe and his lobbyist brothers James and Frank didn't set a particularly good example for Hunter.  They taught him early in his career that he could make easy money off the family's political connections.  Long before Hunter cashed in on his father's last name in China and Ukraine, he was profiting off it in Delaware.  Joe Biden arranged gigs for him, shortly after he left law school, with MBNA, the credit card company in Delaware.  While Joe Biden was pushing legislation beneficial to MBNA, Hunter was picking up mysterious checks from it for unspecified "consulting" work.

Joe Biden Off Campaign Trail for Ninth Day in September.  Former Vice President Joe Biden has no public events scheduled Thursday [9/24/2020] — the ninth day in September the Democrat nominee will not be on the campaign trail.  Biden's campaign called a "lid" at 9:20 a.m Thursday morning, meaning that it had no public events or travel scheduled for the rest of the day.  A "lid" usually also means the campaign will not conduct press conferences or dispense press releases the remainder of the day.  Biden's team also clarified that Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), the Democrat vice presidential nominee, had no public events scheduled for Thursday and, therefore, would not be on the campaign trail, either.

For The Ninth Time This Month, Joe Biden Takes A Full Day Off Campaigning.  The Biden Campaign called a "lid" on the campaign trail by 9:20 a.m.  Thursday morning [9/24/2020], meaning the 77-year-old Biden will not make any in-person or media appearances for the rest of the day.  This marks the ninth day this month the campaign has halted access to their candidate before noon with only 40 days to go until the Nov. 3 election.

This Is Probably Why Joe Biden Called It A Day Before 10 AM Yesterday, and Hunter Might Be the Reason.  Joe Biden called it a day before 10 AM.  Less than 45 days from Election Day, with a Supreme Court fight about to break out on the Hill — and Joe is too tired to campaign. [...] The liberal media, which acted as the Biden rapid response team, says he's doing debate preparation.  Yes, the first debate is next Tuesday, but I think we're forgetting the disastrous interview Joe recently had with Axios.  Yeah, Hunter Biden was brought up by Mike Allen, the site's co-founder.  Joe didn't handle it well. [...] He also lied and repeated the claim that he didn't know what his son was up to regarding his shady business dealings.  We also have new reports that $3.5 million was wired to him from the ex-wife of the mayor of Moscow.  Oh, and might have paid for Eastern European hookers who were part of a human trafficking ring.  That's uh, a lot of problematic developments in the final stages of a campaign and before a critical debate.

Biden, the great equivocator, has flip-flopped his way through life.  All of us have run into them occasionally:  people who lack convictions of their own but parrot the convictions of whoever they are speaking with at the moment.  "Go-along-to-get-along" people, who think that others will like them more if they just agree with what others are saying.  Those are people who usually have trouble governing themselves, which means that in almost every case they should never be put in a position to govern others.  We see it in some parents, and in some teachers.  And certainly in some politicians.  And we see it in Joe Biden and his see-saw positions over the 45-plus years of being in elected office, a man quite adept at shifting positions with the Democratic Party's winds.  Biden has been on both sides of so many issues, dodging, evading, switching, escaping, it would be accurate to call him The Great Equivocator.

The left-wingers constantly rail about Trump being a chronic liar, but they're solidly behind this guy.
Biden's claim about attending historically Black Delaware State refuted by university.  Joseph R. Biden declared last year on the campaign trail that he began his academic career at Delaware State University, a historically Black college, a claim that the school refutes.  Carlos Holmes, director of news service for Delaware State, said that Mr. Biden was never a student, although he has made appearances twice on campus for commencement speeches at the public university in Dover, one of the nation's historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs).  "Vice President Biden did not attend DSU," said Mr. Holmes in a Thursday [9/24/2020] email.  "However he was the Commencement keynote speaker in 2003 and [2016], and during the former he was awarded an honorary doctoral degree."

Will Media Ever Ask About Biden's Corrupt Deals As Vice President?  Joe Biden continues to duck appearances where he might have to make unscripted comments or answer even softball questions.  But a new congressional report, "Hunter Biden, Burisma, and Corruption:  The Impact on U.S. Government Policy and Related Concerns," may change that in the upcoming debates:  It asks, did Vice President Biden use his global political influence to help his son Hunter bag lucrative deals in Ukraine and China?  Americans deserve an answer.  The GOP-led investigation charged that the Bidens' efforts to cash in on Joe Biden's clout became so flagrant that U.S. officials became alarmed at what they saw.  It was "an ethical conflict of interest and flagged concerns about possible criminal activity ranging from bribery to sex trafficking," according to investigative reporter John Solomon of the Just the News website.

Hunter Biden is a Clear and Present National Security Risk.  The new report jointly dropped today by the Senate Finance and Senate Homeland Security Committees squarely and unambiguously identifies Hunter Biden as a clear and present danger to U.S. national security should his dear old dad get elected to the presidency.  The report makes clear that the younger Biden is not only in the pockets of Chinese and Ukrainian oligarchs, but Russians as well.  The fact that Hunter Biden used his daddy's position as U.S. Vice President to enrich himself during the Obama years has long been well-documented.  The younger Biden tagged along with his helpful Pop on Air Force 2 trips all over the globe to secure lucrative "business" deals with the Chinese Communist government and with the Ukrainian natural gas company Burisma.  Chief among the revelations in today's Senate report is that Hunter Biden also received a payment of $3.5 million from the wife of the former Mayor of Moscow, Elena Baturina.

Liberal media's pass on sloppy Joe and scandalous Hunter Biden.  The witness protection of Joe Biden by the media is starting to look like election interference.  Exhibit A:  The Senate interim report released Wednesday [9/23/2020] detailing millions of dollars Joe Biden's son Hunter received from corrupt foreign oligarchs and companies while his father was vice president. [...] The old allegations were damning enough, anyway, despite the fact they have been flushed down the memory hole.  Take Hunter's $50,000 monthly payment for sitting on the board of Ukrainian natural-gas firm Burisma Holdings, despite no relevant experience and a history of drug problems, at a time when his father was in charge of US policy toward Ukraine.  But here's just one of the new revelations:  Hunter received a $3.5 million wire transfer in 2014 from Elena Baturina, the wife of the former mayor of Moscow, and a billionaire friend of Vladimir Putin.  Now that's real Russian collusion.

Hunter Biden Revelations:  Joe Biden Knew, and He Lied About It.  Joe Biden knew.  That's one of the chief themes that was developed in the new Senate report on Hunter Biden's laundry list of bad, possibly criminal behavior.  As I reported yesterday, the report notes that Hunter Biden was wired $3.5M from a Russian woman under mysterious circumstances.  And while the mainstream media may be ignoring all this, there are plenty of people who aren't content to sit back and not push this stuff into the light.  Mollie Hemingway appeared on Fox News last night and shared some of the revelations from the report.

Biden Report Shows Impeachment Was Election Interference.  With the release Wednesday [9/23/2020] of Senator Ron Johnson's (R-Wis.) long-awaited investigation into the Biden family's corrupt, possibly criminal, ties to Ukraine and other countries, one thing is clear:  Had the information in the report been made public a year ago, it's nearly impossible to believe Joe Biden would still be the Democratic nominee for president. [...] Trump's impeachment served two purposes: to bury one more scandal under the self-proclaimed "scandal free" Obama Administration and to save Joe Biden's candidacy.  It was straight-up interference with the 2020 election because without the impeachment diversions, it's very likely that either Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren, not Biden, would be on the November ballot right now.

Senate Report Accuses Hunter Biden Of Paying For Hookers Who May Have Been Trafficked.  An earthshattering report released by Senate investigators Wednesday [9/23/2020] outlining the Biden family's long list of conflicts of interest at the upper echelons of government unearthed new allegations of former Vice President Joe Biden's son making multiple payments to Eastern European prostitutes.  According to the joint report out by the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee with the Senate Treasury Committee, Hunter Biden made a number of payments to foreign nationals with "questionable backgrounds" consistent with "organized prostitution and/or human trafficking."

Seems Like Old Times:  Getty Images Publishes Photo of Joe Biden... With a Halo.  Deb Heine tells me she was looking for a single Getty image — just one — which showed Biden looking sleepy or out of it, but strangely enough — despite him looking like that all the time — she couldn't find such an image in Getty.  But she did find this Obama-esqe halo picture.  And then she found that a lot of DC photographers decided to try for the Halo effect:  [Numerous examples.]

Senate Releases Report of Hunter Biden Foreign Payments and Influence Sales — Money, Hookers and Bribes.  Senators Ron Johnson, chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, and Chuck Grassley, chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, released a report today showing millions in sketchy payments to the son of former Vice-President Joe Biden that showcase compromise and blackmail material.  Included in the release are details of payments made by the wife of the former Mayor of Moscow and what appear to be eastern European prostitutes provided to Hunter Biden.

Senate Report Finds Hunter Biden Financially Tied to Chinese Government, Rich Russian Widow, Human Trafficking.  A long-awaited report released by Senate Republicans Wednesday makes a series of devastating new corruption allegations against Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, and alleges that the Obama White House knew Hunter's work for Ukrainian gas company Burisma Holdings prevented "the efficient execution of policy with respect to Ukraine" during Biden's tenure as vice president.  According to the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee and Senate Finance Committee report, Hunter Biden had business associations with Chinese nationals linked to the Communist government and People's Liberation Army resulting in millions of dollars in questionable cash transactions.  The Senate investigation also found links between Hunter Biden and human trafficking, the adult entertainment industry, and/or prostitution.

Hunter Biden received $3.5M wire transfer from Russian billionaire:  Senate report.  Hunter Biden received a $3.5 million wire transfer from Elena Baturina, the richest woman in Russia and the widow of Yury Luzhkov, the former mayor of Moscow, Senate Republicans revealed in their report on the younger Biden's work in Ukraine.  Baturina is referenced in the 87-page report, which was released Wednesday, addressing her payment to Biden's investment firm in early 2014.  "Baturina became Russia's only female billionaire when her plastics company, Inteko, received a series of Moscow municipal contracts while her husband was mayor," it said in providing background on the businesswoman.

Why Biden's Repeated Mask Mandate Flip Flops Matter.  Over the course of five weeks, Joe Biden has stated five different positions on a national mask-wearing mandate.  This is the guy who says he long ago worked out a comprehensive plan to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic and who keeps promising steady leadership if elected president.  For those who haven't been able to keep up with Biden's shifting position on masks, here's a timeline. [...] So why does this kerfuffle over masks matter?  It matters because Biden has made the pandemic the single issue on which he wants voters to decide who should be president.  Yet he still can't articulate a position on one of the key containment policies.  And it matters because Biden and everyone around him keep chanting about his "steady, unifying, experienced leadership."  How does that square with his wobbliness on this relatively simple issue, and what is his experience worth if still can't understand the limits of presidential power?

Biden Campaign to Appear Alongside Hanoi Jane.  The Biden campaign, which has bombarded President Donald Trump with attacks about his respect for U.S. soldiers, will be campaigning this weekend with Jane Fonda, a celebrity best known for fraternizing with enemy troops during the Vietnam War.  Democratic vice-presidential candidate Kamala Harris is set to join Fonda at a Saturday [9/26/2020] virtual event held by progressive advocacy group Supermajority. [...] Fonda traveled to North Vietnam in 1972 as part of an anti-war protest that saw her pose for photos with enemy troops on an anti-aircraft gun.  The photo sparked outrage among Vietnam veterans, earning her the nickname "Hanoi Jane."

The man, the myth:  Biden still spinning 'fables' despite 1988 election disaster.  Joseph R. Biden blew up his 1988 presidential bid with a plagiarized fictitious account of his hardscrabble roots, but the experience failed to cure him of his tendency to exaggerate, conflate and even invent stories about his upbringing and political history.  Since the start of the 2020 campaign, Mr. Biden has been caught on numerous occasions spinning false and even ludicrous yarns, a tendency that has prompted head-scratching from his supporters and exasperation from conservatives stunned that his tall tales have yet to torpedo his salt-of-the-earth image.

Hunter Biden Raised 'Counterintelligence And Extortion' Concerns, May Have Participated In Sex Trafficking:  Senate Report.  A long-awaited Senate report on Hunter Biden's financial dealings with Ukrainian, Chinese and Russian businesses created potential "criminal financial, counterintelligence and extortion concerns," and alarmed US officials who perceived an ethical conflict of interest and flagged potential crimes ranging from sex trafficking to bribery.  The findings are contained in a joint report by the GOP-led Senate Homeland and Government Affairs and Senate Finance Committees, released just six days before the first Presidential Debate between Joe Biden and President Trump.

Harris — not Biden — is the real candidate.  It has been obvious for some time that Biden's cognitive state is on a level with the spider monkey.  He can't remember where he is or what he is running for.  He can't put together a coherent sentence.  His condition has become a running joke.  At his age, he would at best be a one-term president.  So why would a major party pin its hopes on such a man? [...] Enter Kamala Harris.  The media are pushing the argument that Harris is on the ticket because of pressure to choose a woman of color as Biden's running mate.  Note this report from NBC News:  "Add in Biden's age (77), and Harris could find herself in a unique position as vice president.  Instead of having to wait eight years for her shot, she could get it in the next election in 2024."  This is what the Democrats want us to believe.  As usual, it is a lie.  If they win, she won't have to wait at all.

Biden anti-business agenda would wreck the economy.  The Democrats are rewriting history, celebrating the Obama record on the economy as if these were the salad days for America.  In Washington parlance, that is called "misremembering."  The reality is that the Obama tax-and-regulate agenda led to the weakest economic recovery from a recession since the Great Depression.  This week, the Census Bureau released its economic report — the gold standard of measuring the finances of American families.  In President Donald Trump's first three years in office, real median family income for Americans rose by more than $6,400.  In Obama's EIGHT years in office, the increase in incomes was closer to $4,000.  Black Americans made more income gains in three years under Trump than eight years under Obama.

No-Show Joe.  [Scroll down]  In a week, on Tuesday, September 29, Joe Biden is scheduled to meet Donald Trump in the first of three presidential debates.  And while Trump is making multiple campaign stops a day in front of substantial crowds, jokingly asking why Biden bothered to get plastic surgery if he was just going to cover his face with a mask and trolling Biden with threats that he would ban him from the presidency by executive order, Biden can't even show his face nearly 40 percent of the time.  And when he does, it's to do softball interviews from his basement or bizarre "campaign" events in front of practically no one.  Biden gets off a plane and waves to an empty tarmac, while Trump speaks in front of a hangar full of people.

Will Biden attend the first debate?
Will Biden Survive the First Debate?  Biden's cognitive decline is now so steep that he begins reading pre-written answers to pre-written questions, forgets what he's doing halfway through, and settles for stringing syllables together that sound English-y in a non-native speaker sort of way.  He is a man forever in search of a thought but finding none, while the press corps propping up his campaign pretends otherwise.  All I hear when Old Joe speaks is Grampa Simpson saying, "If I'm not back at the home by nine, they declare me legally dead and collect my insurance."  That might be his best excuse for getting out of the debate in Cleveland.  If America sees the real "Sundown" Joe after dusk, this race is over.  Don't do it, Joe!  Getting murdered on national television is no way to end a 47-year career as a Washington welcome mat.  It would be better to concede the contest right now than to endure the beating coming your way.

The Editor says...
Joe Biden simply cannot drop out at this point, because it would force the Democrats to reveal the name of Kamala Harris's running mate, way ahead of the early voting window.  Such a person would almost certainly have to be female and/or black, e.g., Hillary Clinton, Valerie Jarrett, Oprah Winfrey, or Michelle Obama.  The majority of American voters will not vote for any of them.  As a public service, I will refrain from making any further suggestions.

Hunter Biden Received Millions From Wife Of Ex-Moscow Mayor, Paid Suspects Allegedly Tied To Trafficking, Had Contacts With Individuals Linked To Chinese Military, Senate Report Alleges.  A bombshell report from the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs (HSGAC) and the Committee on Finance makes a series of damning new allegations against Hunter Biden, the son of Democrat presidential nominee.  The investigation launched after Finance Committee Chairman Charles Grassley (R-IA) publicly raised conflict-of-interest concerns about the sale of a U.S. company to a Chinese firm with ties to Hunter Biden a month before Congress was notified about a whistleblower complaint that was the catalyst for Democrats' impeachment of President Donald Trump.  The Senate's investigation relied on records from the U.S. government, Democrat lobbying groups, and interviews of numerous current and former officials.

Sen. Johnson, Sen. Grassley release report on conflicts-of-interest investigation involving Hunter Biden.  US Senators Ron Johnson (R-WI), chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, and Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA), chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, released a report revealing millions of dollars in questionable financial transactions between Hunter Biden, his associates and foreign individuals.  The foreign individuals include the former mayor of Moscow and individuals with ties to the Chinese Communist Party.

Senate GOP's controversial Biden report.  Republicans on Wednesday [9/23/2020] released a report on their investigation focused on former Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden, a move they hope will put fresh scrutiny on the former vice president just weeks from the election.  The controversial probe is spearheaded by Sens. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) and Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa).  It is focused broadly on Obama-era policy and Hunter Biden's work for Ukrainian gas company Burisma Holdings.

GOP-led Senate committees issue report on Bidens and Ukraine.  Two Republican-led Senate committees issued a politically charged report Wednesday on the work Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's son did in Ukraine.  Biden's campaign immediately panned the report, released six weeks before the election, as an effort by an ally of President Trump to damage his election opponent.

A year after impeachment, Hunter Biden's Ukraine activities come home to roost.  A year ago this month, Democrats began their impeachment crusade against President Trump because he had sought an investigation into Joe and Hunter Biden's activities in Ukraine.  And the rallying cry then was that any concerns about the Bidens were pure, discredited conspiracy theories.  What a difference a year makes.  The GOP-led Senate Finance and Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs committees plan to release a joint report as early as this week disclosing the results of a year-long probe into Joe Biden's stewardship of Ukraine anti-corruption policy while his son earned big money as a board member at the corruption-plagued Burisma Holdings gas firm.

Senate report slams Bidens for conflicts of interest, flags possible criminal activity.  A year-long Senate investigation concluded Wednesday that Hunter Biden's efforts to cash in on foreign business deals during his father's vice presidency raised alarm among U.S. government officials, who perceived an ethical conflict of interest and flagged concerns about possible criminal activity ranging from bribery to sex trafficking.  The long-awaited joint report by the GOP-led Senate Homeland and Government Affairs and Senate Finance Committees delivered several blockbuster revelations less than two months before Election Day, suggesting Obama administration officials ignored clear warning signs about ethical conflicts and possible extortion risks involving Joe Biden's family.  Perhaps the most explosive revelation was that the U.S. Treasury Department flagged payments collected overseas by Hunter Biden and business partner Devon Archer for possible illicit activities.

Socialists are destroying the nation.  Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Chuck Schumer have united to use and exploit — as the red-lipped lipsticked socialist with the mocialist put it, during a joint event in Brooklyn — "every tool at our disposal" that can stop the Senate from confirming any Supreme Court justice nominated by President Donald Trump.  In other words:  Make way for the firebombs.  'Cause when socialists say "every tool at our disposal," they aren't talking about talking. [...] They're talking about bricks.  And Molotov cocktails.  And broken storefront windows and smashed cars.  And holding mob-mentality scream-fests outside hospitals where, say, shot police officers lay healing, and hurling phrases like, "We hope you die."  They're talking about using every irrational tool at their disposal, including violence, including thuggery, including intimidating protests and in-your-face confrontations — "every tool at [their] disposal" to win the White House, to kick this administration to the curb, and finally, ultimately, in the end, to bring Trump both figuratively and literally to his knees.  They want to see this president suffer.  They want to see this president jailed and destroyed.  They're talking about taking blood, but no prisoners.

Biden Campaign Calls 'a Lid' on Sleepy Joe's Media Appearances For the 8th Time This Month.  For the eight time this month, the Biden campaign on Tuesday called "a lid" before noon, meaning the 77-year-old won't be making any in-person campaign appearances for the rest of the day — 42 days before the election.  The campaign's announcement came at 9:22 a.m., according to Ed O'Keefe, the political correspondent for CBS News.  Jake Schneider, the Rapid Response deputy director of President Trump's campaign team mocked Biden for hiding out "in his basement" for the day instead of campaigning.

Cotton: Biden Knows if He Revealed 'Radical Left-Wing' SCOTUS Nomination List 'He Would Lose the Election'.  In a Tuesday [9/22/2020] interview with Fox News Channel's "America's Newsroom," Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) sounded off on why 2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is yet to reveal his list of potential nominees to the U.S. Supreme Court.  According to Cotton, Biden is stalling because he knows if he put out a list, "he would lose the election" after unveiling a list of "radical left-wing lawyers."

After Taking Another Day Off The Campaign Trail, It's Time To Ask If Joe Biden Is OK.  Tuesday morning [9/22/2020] before 9crapshoota.m., the Biden campaign announced it was putting a lid on the day.  For those unfamiliar with this lingo it means that Biden will have no events or appearances for the rest of the day.  This is a Tuesday, just 42 days away from an election that by all accounts seems to be tightening, especially in key battleground states.  To basically take the day off in the midst of a heated campaign is strange, even more so because he has done this several times in the past few weeks.  It is becoming impossible not to wonder if Biden really is fit to campaign, and by extension, be president of the United States. [...] This is an issue that most of the corporate media really, really, really does not want to cover.  But we are getting to a place where they will just have no choice.  Put simply, what looked this summer like a reasonable strategy to lay low and let an inevitable win come to Biden now looks flat out bizarre.

Joe Biden Isn't Running For President, His Teleprompter Is.  [Scroll down]  Stepping on a rake has been part of Biden's shtick for ages, and we've been gaslighted to think this is the essence of charm.  That's just Joe, folks!  But in 2014, then-Vice President Biden's blunders caught up with him again, this time embarrassing the Obama administration.  So The New Yorker published an article about his verbal doozies that riled allies at home and interests abroad.  That was not that long ago, but six years can have a profound, compounding effect on the brain.  It's now [uncertain] what's going to come out of Biden's mouth on or off the prompter.  Biden has regressed to the point of reading cues out loud, giving hand signals — that we can see — to scroll up the text, and botching words as they appear on the screen.

Biden teleprompter in Minnesota
More Photos of Biden Teleprompter Revealed.  Joe Biden spoke last week in Duluth, Minnesota to a handful of campaign videographers and approved press.  The entire event was staged with Biden reading from his teleprompter and we now have proof.  The entire Duluth, Minnesota presser in Minnesota was a bad joke.

In a similar manner, Barack H. Obama is helpless without a teleprompter.

If Biden Comes In, So Do 50+ Million Immigrants.  As the liberal fight against ICE continues, the new Biden-Harris immigration plan could allow up to 52 million new immigrants into the U.S., according to a Federation for American Immigration Reform analysis via the Daily Caller.  "This dramatic increase would eclipse the entire current foreign-born population of the country," said the Federation for American Immigration (FAIR).

Joe Biden's Supreme Court shortlist:  White people need not apply.  The United States is a diverse nation, and there's nothing wrong with wanting our government to include people from all walks of life and perspectives.  But in fashion sadly typical for today's Democratic Party, Joe Biden just responded to the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg with an extreme invocation of identity politics.  His regressive approach to filling her seat sabotages true diversity and progress.  Biden has explicitly made it clear that white women and men of all races need not apply for his Supreme Court shortlist.  "I'm looking forward to making sure there's a black woman on the Supreme Court," he said on the Democratic debate stage in February.  "I'd push very hard for that."

Joe Biden Botches Pledge Of Allegiance In Wisconsin.  2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden screwed up the Pledge of Allegiance Monday [9/21/2020] during a campaign speech in Wisconsin.  "I pledge allegiance to the United States of America, one nation, indivisible, under God, for real," Biden said.

Biden On If He Supports Radical Idea Of Packing Supreme Court: 'I'm Not Going To Answer That Question'.  Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden said that the issue of whether he supports packing the Supreme Court is a "legitimate question" for journalists to ask but he is not going to answer the question.  A local Wisconsin news station asked Biden if he was elected president and the Democrats gained back control of the Senate, would he support adding more seats to the Supreme Court.  "It's a legitimate question," Biden responded.  "But let me tell you why I'm not going to answer that question:  Because it will shift the whole focus.  That's what he wants.  He never wants to talk about the issue at hand.  He always tries to change the subject.  But let's say I answer that question, then the whole debate's going to be: well, Biden said or didn't say.  Biden said he would or wouldn't."

Joe Biden:  Voters Don't Deserve to Know Whom I'd Appoint to Supreme Court.  Joe Biden told a Milwaukee television station on Monday that voters do not deserve to know whom he would appoint to the Supreme Court.  After acknowledging he has a list of potential nominees, Joe Biden told TMJ 4 he simply is not going to share it. [...] He admitted the first selection was based on race and gender:  a black woman.  But beyond that, he would not provide additional details.

A year after impeachment, Hunter Biden's Ukraine activities come home to roost.  A year ago this month, Democrats began their impeachment crusade against President Trump because he had sought an investigation into Joe and Hunter Biden's activities in Ukraine.  And the rallying cry then was that any concerns about the Bidens were pure, discredited conspiracy theories.  What a difference a year makes.  The GOP-led Senate Finance and Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs committees plan to release a joint report as early as this week disclosing the results of a year-long probe into Joe Biden's stewardship of Ukraine anti-corruption policy while his son earned big money as a board member at the corruption-plagued Burisma Holdings gas firm.

Do Democrats Really Believe Biden Is Winning?  All Americans should stop at least once before Election Day and take a hard look at the Democrat candidate, "King of Aphasia" Joe Biden.  When they do, they will understand what the left is planning.  Ignore his 47 years in elected office without accomplishment, save for the 1994 Crime Bill, which he has since disavowed.  Ignore that, as Robert Gates, former defense secretary under Obama, said, he has been wrong on every foreign policy issue facing the United States in the last 40 years.  Dismiss the serial corruption of his family as they traded on his political office to become wealthy.  Ignore the gaffes and the serial plagiarism.  Ignore his long association with politicians associated with the Ku Klux Klan.  Ignore his penchant for the unwanted touching of women and children and his creepy fondness for the smell of their hair.  Concentrate on the man and who he is today.  Look at the comparison of the Joe Biden who debated Paul Ryan in 2012 with the Biden of today, hoping to trade his basement for the White House cellar.  His mumbling and the many times he seems lost even when reading prepared answers off a teleprompter to prearranged questions from reporters pre-picked by his staff should force even the casual observer to admit he has lost much more than a step.

Is Anyone Else Puzzled Over What Joe Biden Did the Day After Ruth Bader Ginsburg's Passing?  Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has died.  She was 87.  Her legacy is cemented.  Period.  The Left is going bananas.  The meltdowns are pervasive.  The Democrats want to pack the Supreme Court in anticipation of a nomination fight to fill her vacancy.  Filling the seat is going to happen.  The top Senate Republicans have signaled their intention to hold committee and floor votes should a nominee be brought before them.  President Donald Trump said that the Republican Party should move "without delay" to fill the vacancy. [...] Biden has enthusiasm issues with Democrats and this SCOTUS issue could help him get a little life into the equation.  Nope.  He was too tired.  His people called a lid at 8:34 AM.  Yeah, that's right.  He decided to take the day off.  I mean, not complaining, but this is odd, right? [...] For progressive voters, this should tell you all that you need to know about Joe.  He's no fighter.  He's weak.  He'd rather stay in the basement.

The Secret Life of Joe Biden.  It wasn't long ago that Biden was telling a rapt audience at Dartmouth the story of a brave Navy captain who had rappelled down a steep ravine in the mountains of Kunar province in an unsuccessful bid to rescue his comrade.  An unnamed general had implored the then-vice president to fly to Afghanistan and personally pin the Silver Star on this captain.  "And everybody got concerned a vice president going up in the middle of this," a fearless Biden recalled, "but we can lose a vice president; we can't lose many more of these kids, not a joke."  Now, don't fret.  Biden is no stranger to peril.  During a presidential primary debate in 2007, he told viewers about the time he had been "shot at" during a trip to the Green Zone in Iraq.  In any event, the naval officer in question would not let Biden pin the medal on him.  "God's truth, my word as a Biden," the former senator said.  "He stood at attention, I went to pin him, he said: 'Sir, I don't want the [...] thing.  Do not pin it on me sir, please.  Do not do that.  He died.  He died.'"  The only problem with this moving tale was that Biden never visited Kunar province as vice president nor did he ever pin a silver star on any Navy captain, much less one who refused to accept the honor.  Nor, incidentally, had Biden ever been "shot at" by anyone.

Time for the Democrats to Pull the Plug on Joe Biden?  Joe Biden has never been an intelligent person, but there was a time when his brain would have sounded an alarm if he was about to say that 2/3 of the U.S. population was about to perish.  But those days are gone.  Biden is a pathetic shell of a man, and for the Democrats to continue propping him up as a presidential candidate is elder abuse.  Because of the crazy environment in which we live, there is a chance that Biden might be elected president.  But he will never serve as president.  He can't.  He is senile, suffering from advanced dementia.  If the Democrats care, they aren't showing it.

Biden is accused of hypocrisy after saying in 2016 it is the 'constitutional duty' of a president to name a SCOTUS nominee even if it is an election year.  Joe Biden is accused of hypocrisy after a 2016 op-ed emerged in which he slammed Republicans for holding up a Supreme Court appointment, stating that it is the 'constitutional duty' of a president to nominate if a vacancy becomes available.  He made the comments in a March 2016 op-ed with the New York Times, in which he added that he was 'surprised and saddened' to hear Republican senators say they would not longer accept a nomination because it was an election year.  His words resurfaced this week after he blasted President Donald Trump for moving to nominate a candidate to fill the vacancy left by the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Friday.

If Trump said this, it would be front-page news.
Joe Biden Claims 200 Million Americans Have Died from Coronavirus.  Joe Biden claimed on Sunday that, by the time he would be done speaking, 200 million Americans will have died from the coronavirus.  [Video clip]  As Biden demanded inaction from the U.S. Senate on providing advice and consent on a potential Supreme Court nominee, he said, "It's estimated 200 million people have died probably by the time I finish this talk."  That would be roughly two-thirds of the country.

A Woke Joe Biden Ends His Hibernation.  Like some fictive vampire, Joe Biden has been ensconced in a basement tomb and, now pale, he is reemerging into the light and finding the glare all but lethal.  Under the cloak of the coronavirus and national quarantine, Biden essentially had shut down his campaign from late March to the present.  Ostensibly, his handlers believed that any downside of appearing to play-rope-a-dope and to avoid unscripted events was more than outweighed by not putting a sometimes frail 77-year-old man with apparent cognitive challenges out on the campaign trail for 16-hour days.  Or as his former boss, Barack Obama, reportedly warned Biden of the looming 2020 ordeal and his apparent fragility, "You don't have to do this, Joe, you really don't."  He really didn't have to — except that Kamala Harris, Beto O'Rourke, Cory Booker, Elizabeth Warren, and Bernie Sanders proved inept messengers of socialism.

Democrats nervous lukewarm Biden reception in Minnesota bodes well for Trump.  Democrats are concerned that a groundswell of support for President Trump outside of Minnesota's Twin Cities may be enough to win him the state over 2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.  Biden, the former two-term vice president and 36-year Delaware senator, visited carpenter apprentices and other union workers near Duluth on Friday [9/18/2020], his first trip to Minnesota in more than 1,000 days, according to the Trump campaign.  Yet, despite his team releasing scant details about his itinerary, even to the local press, Republicans outnumbered Democrats at Hermantown's Jerry Alander Carpenter Training Center, worrying those who are opposed to Trump clinching a second term on Nov. 3.

To Rescue Biden, Media Conflate All Teleprompter Use.  At his Wisconsin rally last night, President Donald Trump continued to tease former Vice President Joe Biden for relying on a teleprompter when he answers queries from the media.  While teleprompter use is very common for politicians and others giving formal speeches, Biden is the first candidate to regularly use one outside of formal speeches, such as during press conferences.  During Biden's nearly 50 years in politics, his off-the-cuff remarks have gotten him in more than a bit of trouble, but the obvious teleprompter use is posing problems of its own.

Biden Refuses To Release List Of Supreme Court Contenders.  It's no secret that Republicans take filling judgeships much more seriously than Democrats.  President Trump released his first list of prospective Supreme Court nominees before he was even elected, back in September 2016, and — in what was taken at the time as a grim harbinger of RBG's condition — released his most recent revisions/additions earlier this month, just days before RBG died.  But in the latest indication of just how low a priority selecting Supreme Court judges has been for Democrats — after all, they're not even in power, right? — Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden is reportedly refusing to release a list of potential nominees, should he ever get the opportunity to fill the vacancy left by the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Joe Biden Resurrects False College Claim That Helped Ruin His 1988 Presidential Run.  Joe Biden is not the first person in his family to have gone to college.  But he has a lengthy history of claiming otherwise, no matter how much the lie gets him in trouble.  Even after having famously admitted exactly 33 years ago to the day that he had family who had gone to college before him, Biden once again made the false claim at a CNN Town Hall on Thursday night.  Biden enthusiast Charlotte Alter, a national correspondent at Time magazine, tweeted out his line, apparently unaware of its role in Biden's 1987 presidential campaign collapse:  [Tweet]

Biden-Harris Ticket All Over the Place on Nationwide Mask Mandate.  Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have struggled to deliver a consistent message on whether they would enforce a nationwide coronavirus mask mandate in office.  [Video clip]

Biden Stumbles Over His Words, His Notes, and His Facts.  Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has insisted he's not slowing down, but this week he struggled to read his notes and speak clearly, and he even repeated one of the falsehoods about his college career that sunk his 1988 presidential campaign.  [Video clip]

Joe Biden Cannot Stop Lying.  Younger readers and many journalists don't remember, but in 1987 then-Senator Biden was the front-runner for the Democratic presidential primary.  The New York Times described him as "the hot property of the Democratic field, a meteor in a sky of slow-moving planets."  Biden moved crowds with powerful speeches about his humble beginnings in Scranton, Pennsylvania and his upward journey through local politics all the way to the United States Senate.  But Biden's campaign used speeches by British Labour Leader Neil Kinnock as models for their own candidate.  Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but Biden soon went well beyond imitation.  Seemingly forgetting details of his own life story, Biden started telling crowds about his coal miner ancestors, and about how he was the first in his family to go to college.  But these were not true of Biden nor his family — the anecdotes were unique to Kinnock.

Joe Biden spent decades warning of voter fraud — now called a myth by Dems.  The Democratic Party line treats voter fraud as little more than a GOP fever dream — yet the party's presidential candidate Joe Biden spent decades of his career sounding the alarm about it.  Biden, the Democratic standard bearer, consistently shared GOP concerns about voter fraud during his 36 years as a United States senator from Delaware.  "Should Voters Be Allowed To Register On Election Day?  No," Biden wrote in an op-ed to a now-defunct Wilmington, Del. newspaper in 1977.  He even chided President Carter for proposing it.

Obama is the Power Behind the Biden Teleprompter.  [Scroll down]  Meanwhile, the liberals in the media are in ecstasy over Barack Hussein' Obama's new book, A Promised Land. [...] Obama is still important, not only because he's hawking a new book, but because he's the power behind the Joe Biden candidacy.  While conservatives note the references by Democratic vice-presidential candidate Kamala Harris to a planned "Harris Administration," a Joe Biden victory will in reality be another Obama Administration, a third term for our 44th president.  Anybody who gets Democratic Party email messages about the election understands that Obama is the fundraising hook or ploy in most of them.  Biden can't motivate the left, but Obama can.

Biden stiffed local media in campaign visit to Duluth, Minnesota yesterday.  One of the principal benefits of a presidential campaign visit to the hustings is supposed to be the opportunity for the candidate to appear on local media, talking to locally prominent reporters and anchors that reach viewers that normally pay little attention to national news.  Locals often feel a sense of identification with their familiar local media figures and appreciate the attention from a national figure.  It's a corollary to the maxim that "all politics is local," connecting the candidate to the hometown media, to whom the locals may feel a certain affinity.  That's why it was so jarring yesterday when Joe Biden visited Duluth, Minnesota yesterday and stiff-armed the local media.

Sorry, Mr. Biden:  The voters did pick who should fill the SCOTUS vacancy.  Commenting on the death of Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Joe Biden said:  "There is no doubt, let me be clear, that the voters should pick the president and the president should pick the justice for the Senate to consider."  Well Mr. Biden, in case you don't remember, the voters did pick a president in 2016, and the voters picked Donald J. Trump.  Mr. Trump was inaugurated at noon on Jan. 20, 2017, making him the 45th President of the United States.  Again, in case you can't recall Mr. Biden, Section 1 of the 20th Amendment of the U. S. Constitution states that Donald J. Trump's term as president of the United States does not end until noon on Jan. 20, 2021.

The Biden Hoax.  Joe Biden's nomination is the Democrats' crowning insult.  They're making another go at playing voters for chumps. [...] Biden's nomination is more than a go at sly stagecraft; it's the most audacious gaslighting in American history.  Everybody and his sister can see that Biden is suffering early onset dementia.  If not, then let's see the neurological evals, because Biden's compass isn't pointing true north.  He's slow, often confused, irritable, and, increasingly vacant.  He shuffles when he walks.  Trotting ten feet to a podium — once — doesn't count.  He takes days off, and his availability is strictly limited.  Packing Biden off for a quick, canned event in Florida isn't close to Trump's indefatigable stumping.  Most days, Biden lives out the campaign at his spacious Wilmington, Delaware house.  Not surprisingly, the MSM throws Biden softballs.  That's a given among Fourth Estate bulldogs.  Democrats always get passes, even when their minds are intact.

The Harris-Biden Administration.  [Scroll down]  Biden is deteriorating.  There's just no kind or delicate way around this point, although of course we don't relish the man's decline or take the suffering of old age lightly.  Had Biden been left at home to watch the twilight of his years descend with dignity, we would wish him only the best.  As it is, however, the Democrats have forced us to state the obvious [...] The man can't hold a microphone steady at this point, let alone form a coherent sentence.  The person who is rubbing her hands with delight at this abusive spectacle, though, is Kamala Harris.  Her complete lack of any redeeming qualities, or even any qualities that appeal to the electorate, has not stopped her from making a very serious bid for the highest office in the land.  Harris — implausibly, since she won not a single delegate during her own presidential bid — has a real shot at this thing, and she can taste it.  Not even her own voters like her.  But that won't stop her.

Biden Promises to Control the Weather.  Even as demagogic campaign rhetoric goes, Joe Biden's speech earlier this week about Trump as a "climate arsonist" was exceptionally absurd.  He blamed Trump in effect for not controlling the weather, implying that a Biden presidency would eliminate extreme weather events.  Barack Obama famously said that he could stop the rise of the oceans.  Biden is making similarly grand claims.  Apparently we won't suffer wildfires anymore once he becomes president.

Democratic voters toss Joe Biden softballs during CNN town hall.  Joe Biden was tossed softball questions from mostly all Democratic voters at a 75-minute CNN town hall on Thursday night [9/17/2020] in the battleground state of Pennsylvania, two nights after President Trump was hammered by uncommitted voters in Philadelphia.  The septuagenarian candidate was asked such questions as how he would keep American workplaces safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, whether he'd benefited from white privilege, and how he would bring the nation together, with little follow up from moderator Anderson Cooper.  With only 12 days until the first presidential debate, Biden attempted to dodge any questions that were remotely difficult and was confronted with only three people who voted for Trump in 2016 — appearing to mock one of them for that vote.

Joe Biden's CNN town hall:  An occasional whopper.  Here are five claims that caught our attention during his CNN town hall in Moosic, Pa., moderated by Anderson Cooper.  "If the president had done his job, had done his job from the beginning, all the people would still be alive.  All the people — I'm not making this up.  Just look at the data.  Look at the data."  Actually, Biden is making this up.  There is no data to support this, even if the president had moved rapidly in January to deal with the coronavirus and been able to persuade the Chinese leadership to be more forthcoming about the situation.  Even nations that have been praised for their handling of the pandemic, such as South Korea, New Zealand and Iceland, have suffered some deaths (377 in South Korea, 25 in New Zealand and 10 in Iceland).

CNN panned for 'softball' Biden town hall:  This isn't getting him ready for the debates.  The reviews are in for the CNN town hall featuring Joe Biden... and they aren't great.  While Biden's performance has received praise for his ability to display empathy toward Pennsylvania voters selected to ask questions, what has been described as the "softball" treatment of the former vice president by CNN was widely panned on Thursday night [9/17/2020], especially following the grilling President Trump faced at the ABC News town hall just two days before.  "In the first moments, the contrast between what Trump was asked and what Biden is being asked is striking," Politico columnist Jeff Greenfield tweeted, later writing[,] "Biden is doing very well, yes.  But this is not exactly getting him ready to face tough questions from a Chris Wallace or Jake Tapper (should he decide to do so)."

When cameras at town hall are off Biden, he violates social distancing rules.  When it comes to wearing a face mask and obeying all the other rules of COVID-19 etiquette, the Left is more interested in selling the sizzle than the steak.  Ben Bowles noted a prime example yesterday in the person of CNN's Kaitlan Collins.  At a press briefing on Wednesday, Collins sardonically asked, "So have any medical experts told the president that masks aren't good or is he only citing non-medical experts like [sic] he did last night?" But the second the presser ended, Collins doffed her mask despite being well within the 6-foot limit of the nearest reporter.  But Collins is small potatoes when it comes to self-righteous lectures on mask wearing.  If you need an example of hypocrisy at the highest levels, seek no further than Joe Biden, [...]

Joe Biden and Anderson Cooper slammed for scrapping social distancing as the cameras pull away.  Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and CNN host Anderson Cooper were criticized on social media Thursday night, after viewers noticed that the two threw social distancing out the window as the cameras pulled away after carefully staying far apart during the nominee's town hall.  Pundit Steve Krakauer shared footage of the incident, tweeting, "Joe Biden and Anderson Cooper are making a point of social distancing during the CNN Town Hall while on the stage.  But when they think they've gone to commercial break, they get so close to each other that Biden is whispering in Cooper's ear[.]"  [Video clip]

Why Is Biden So Frightened by a Drug Test?  The federal government mandates that millions of Americans submit to drug screenings to qualify for certain types of positions.  This includes members of the military and other employees of the Department of Defense.  Yet 2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden — a man who wants the voters to elect him Commander in Chief — called President Trump a fool on Monday [9/14/2020] for suggesting that they both submit to just a such a test before their first debate.  Biden has responded equally defensively to requests that he produce a recent cognitive acuity test.  This will inevitably cause voters to wonder what he's hiding.  The Democrats and the corporate media scoff at Trump's drug test challenge as if it isn't to be taken seriously.  They dismiss it as if the president is merely trolling Biden.  In reality, however, he is asking a serious question to which the voters deserve a serious answer.

Joe Biden says he would mandate masks on federal land.  Democratic nominee Joe Biden went after Attorney General Bill Barr for saying that coronavirus lockdown orders were the 'greatest intrusion on civil liberties in American history' since slavery — and called Donald Trump's handling of Covid 'close to criminal.'  'Quite frankly they're sick,' Biden remarked of Barr's comments at a Thursday night [9/178/2020] CNN town hall with Anderson Cooper, held just outside his hometown of Scranton, PA.  'I never, ever thought I would see such a thoroughly, totally irresponsible administration.'

Biden Claims Trump Is Responsible For 'All The People' Who Died From Coronavirus: 'I'm Not Making This Up'.  Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden claimed without evidence on Thursday night that President Donald Trump was responsible for every single person who has died from the coronavirus, which originated in China.  "If the president had done his job, had done his job from the beginning, all the people would still be alive.  All the people — I'm not making this up.  Just look at the data.  Look at the data," Biden stated.  One study suggested that a large number of people may not have died if certain measures had been implemented weeks earlier, but the study in no way stated that earlier action would have saved "all the people."  It's worth noting that Biden held eight rallies in March while Trump only held one.

Biden says if Trump acted sooner on coronavirus 'all the people would still be alive'.  Joe Biden indicated during a CNN town hall Thursday that President Trump is responsible for every single coronavirus death.  "If the president had done his job... had done his job from the beginning, all the people would still be alive," the Democratic presidential nominee told the audience in Pennsylvania.  "All the people — I'm not making this up.  Just look at the data.  Look at the data."  Critics on social media were quick to jump on Biden for his comments.

Leaked 2016 Call Reveals Joe Biden Risked National Security To Sabotage Trump.  A recently leaked phone call between then-Vice President Joe Biden and Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko directly after the 2016 presidential election shows that Biden sought to sabotage the incoming Trump administration before Donald Trump even took office, and much worse.  During the course of the call, Biden badmouthed the incoming administration, saying, "The truth of the matter is that the incoming administration doesn't know a great deal about [Ukraine]" and that they were unprepared for the transition.  This in itself is inappropriate, but it was meant to set the stage for Biden's next statement and future plans.  Biden then told Poroshenko, "I don't plan on going away.  As a private citizen, I plan on staying deeply engaged in the endeavor that you have begun and we have begun."  In a matter of moments, Biden undermined the incoming administration, branded them as not knowing anything about Ukraine, and attempted to set up a foreign policy backchannel for himself after he left office as a private citizen, which could violate the Logan Act.

Joe Biden: 'No Deportations' for Illegal Aliens Until They Commit a Felony.  Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden is again vowing that he will not deport any illegal aliens in his first 100 days in office until they commit a felony against an American citizen.  During an interview with Noticias Telemundo, Biden reiterated his plan to end deportations for at least 100 days, saying that only illegal aliens who commit felonies will be deported.  After the deportation freeze, Biden has said he will prioritize convicted illegal alien felonies, indicating that illegal aliens would have to commit felonies and be convicted before they are ever deported from the United States.

Biden says he may have authority to implement nat'l mask mandate.  Joe Biden has reiterated he will implement a national mask mandate if he's elected president this year.  During a news conference in Delaware, the Democrat presidential candidate said his legal team believes he has the authority to mandate mask wearing.  This came after he previously stated he's not sure whether that order would even be enforceable.  Biden claimed if he can't impose it, he will propose the mandate to every U.S. governor.  He added, "We must do it."

Biden's energy plan could kill 5 million blue-collar jobs.  Joe Biden just can't get his story straight on his green energy promises.  In Pittsburgh, in front of union workers last month, he declared:  "I am not banning fracking.  Let me say that again.  I am not banning fracking.  No matter how many times Donald Trump lies about me."  But that is far from what he was saying earlier this year.  During a March Democratic primary debate exchange between Sen. Bernie Sanders and Biden, Sanders started by saying:  "I'm talking about stopping fracking as soon as we possibly can.  I'm talking about telling the fossil fuel industry that they are going to stop destroying this planet — no ifs, buts and maybes about it."

Biden translator needed.  Joe Biden:  "Cause if you could take care, if you were a quartermaster, you can sure [...] take care runnin' a, you know, a department store uh, thing, you know, where, in the second floor of the ladies department or whatever, you know what I mean?"  [Video clip]

Retired Marine beyond furious over Biden's dubious 'abhorrent' story about veteran with PTSD.  A retired U.S. Marine slammed Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden for an "abhorrent" story he shared about a veteran with post-traumatic stress disorder.  Retired Marine Johnny "Joey" Jones told "Fox & Friends" on Wednesday [9/16/2020] that he was "personally offended" by the story Biden shared at a campaign stop in the battleground state of Florida where he spoke on veterans issues.  The former vice president pressed for an end to the "stigma" around mental health treatment as he told the story in Tampa on Tuesday.  Jones questioned whether Biden's story was even "grounded in fact" as he reacted on Fox News Wednesday, adding that it was "the worst thing I've ever heard a presidential candidate say about men and women serving."  [Video clip]

Biden out standing in his field
Joe:  A Man Outstanding In His Field.  I love it when Joey comes out of his basement. [...] The reason for Joe's prepared remarks yesterday [9/14/2020] was to accuse President Trump of starting the wildfires on the West Coast, creating hurricanes in the Atlantic, allowing the COVID-19 pandemic into the country thus causing the resultant economic collapse, and encouraging the "emboldened white supremacy" he's certain is out there.  He covered a lot of ground in a very few minutes; impressive for an old man of little brain.

Biden has moved further left than Obama on economic and spending policy.  Despite his history as a centrist, Joe Biden has moved further to the left than President Barack Obama and previous Democrats when it comes to his spending policies, economists say.  This has occurred, they say, not only because the Democratic base is increasingly progressive but also because of the extraordinary challenges posed by the coronavirus crisis.  "Biden is presenting himself as temperamentally moderate, which is why he's pushing back on some of the protests," said Brian Riedl, an economist with the Manhattan Institute, a conservative think tank.  "But his actual policy proposals are far to the left, like much of the Democratic Party."

Joe Biden in July 2019: I'll 'Make Sure' Fracking Is 'Eliminated,' Now, 'I Will Not Ban Fracking'.  The question as to whether a President Joe Biden would or would not ban fracking has two answers:  He would "make sure" that hydraulic fracturing or "fracking" to produce oil and natural gas is "eliminated" while saying he would not ban the technique. [...] In an interview last weekend with a local show, This Week in Pennsylvania, Biden said he never has vowed to end fracking. [...] But Biden's campaign website reveals what oil and gas advocates are warning would happen if the former vice president becomes president.

Treasury flagged foreign money flowing to Hunter Biden-tied firms as 'suspicious'.  A Treasury Department agency that polices financial threats such as money laundering flagged several foreign transactions to Hunter Biden-connected businesses as "suspicious" during the end of the Obama administration and the beginning of the Trump administration.  The concerns from the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) were highlighted in Suspicious Activity Reports turned over to Senate committees over the last year in conjunction with investigations into the Russia and Ukraine scandals, according to several officials familiar with the evidence.  As those Senate investigations wind toward the issuance of their first official report later this month, an essential question has emerged:  Did U.S. law enforcement or intelligence agencies do anything to determine if the money flowing to Vice President Joe Biden's son posed any criminal or intelligence threats?  Officials at Treasury, FBI and the Office of Director of National Intelligence declined comment.

Biden Says He'll Kill Federal Funding For Charter Schools.  Many Of Those Schools Hugely Benefit Minorities.  Speaking to Lily Eskelen Garcia, the president of the National Education Association, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden said he had the same feeling that the NEA has about charter schools, adding that no "private charter school will receive a penny of federal money.  None."

There's a reason why Rush is wondering if Biden is ever seen at night.  By now, it's the worst kept secret in the world that Joe Biden is having cognitive difficulties.  He's tethered to a teleprompter, fed only pre-approved questions, and speaks in short increments to friendly audiences.  Rumors are floating about that his dementia is quite advanced. [...] Indeed, most of Biden's appearances are early in the day.  He may do this because he tires easily and, by afternoon, is running on empty.  Rush, though, posits that Biden may be suffering from sundowning, something strongly associated with dementia in the elderly, especially with Alzheimer's.  Sundowning is so named because it consistently appears as the sun is setting. [...] Biden's not all there, and we all know it.  It's an absolute scandal that the Democrats are trying to prop him up long enough to get him through the election so that Kamala Harris, a leftist's leftist, can be installed in the White House.

Joe Biden Weirdly Rants About Quartermasters and Ladies Departments, and I've Got Nothing.  This is much more serious that making fun of the fact that the Democrat nominee is clearly suffering from dementia and an inability to process basic thoughts.  Elections are not a joke.  Policies are not a joke.  If Biden can't be off prompter long enough to articulate something as simple as what he was trying to say here, how is he going to manage a presidency?  The simple answer is that he's not.  Hence Kamala Harris basically admitting it's her administration recently.  Everyone knows what's really happening here and it's one of the most dishonest bait and switches to ever happen in politics.

Trump's new Killer commercial:  Joe's Teleprompter.  Yes.  Joe Biden needs a teleprompter.  Just to answer simple questions.  This man will never debate Trump.  Not without major help, an earpiece and even then he is doomed vs Trump.  Trump needs to make sure if there is a debate, that he can have any ear-piece jammed denying Biden his cheating possibilities.

Joe Biden is Running an Invisible Digital Campaign in All-Important Michigan.  That's Making Some Democrats Nervous.  Four years ago, Don Sabbe made what he calls a "devastating" mistake. [...] This year, the 83-year old former Chrysler employee says he'll definitely vote for Joe Biden, but he's getting concerned about Biden's campaign here in Michigan.  "I can't even find a sign," Sabbe says outside a Kroger's in Sterling Heights, [...] "I'm looking for one of those storefronts.  I'm looking for a campaign office for Biden.  And I'm not finding one."  The reason Sabbe can't find a dedicated Biden campaign field office is because there aren't any around here.  Not in Macomb County, the swing region where Sabbe lives.  It's not even clear Biden has opened any new dedicated field offices in the state; because of the pandemic, they've moved their field organizing effort online.

Harris-Biden gaffes spark questions over Democrat ticket leadership.  As American voters worry about Joe Biden's mental fitness to serve as the leader of the Free World, recent slip-ups from both the gaffe king himself and his running mate Kamala Harris are sparking widespread confusion.  While speaking to military families during a campaign event in Florida Tuesday, Biden appeared to suggest his vice presidential pick is the one at the top of the ticket for the Democrats' bid for the White House.  Many on social media suggested it may have been a "Freudian slip." The clip was trending on Twitter throughout the day.  Furthermore, Harris appeared to make the same mistake during a virtual roundtable with small business owners in Arizona just one day prior.

Biden Makes No Sense in Florida Roundtable Event, Rambles About the Second Floor of the Ladies Department.  77-year-old Joe Biden on Tuesday made no sense during his roundtable event with veterans in Tampa, Florida.  Biden wore a mask while he spoke even though only 6 others participated and they were all several feet away from each other.  At one point Biden began to ramble about the ladies department... you know, the thing!  [Video clip]

Most Americans Know Joe Biden Is a Trojan Horse for the Tyrannical Senator Who Lost the Primary.  As PJ Media's Stephen Kruiser noted in the Morning Briefing on Tuesday, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) seemed to let slip her plans for Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. should he win on November 3. [...] Kruiser called this "the Mother of all Freudian slips," but for many Americans, it was simply "making the subtext text." According to a Rasmussen poll from August, most likely U.S. voters said it is likely Biden's running mate will become president before the end of the Democrat's potential term.  Rasmussen asked Americans, "If Biden is elected in November, how likely is it that his running mate will be president before the end of Biden's four-year term — very likely, somewhat likely, not very likely or not at all likely?"  A whopping 59 percent of likely U.S. voters said it is "likely" Biden's running mate — who had not yet been announced at the time — would become president before the end of the Democrat's term.  Thirty-nine percent said it is "very likely," while 20 percent said it is "somewhat likely."

First Kamala Harris, Now Joe Biden Himself Says the Quiet Part Out Loud as to Who Would Be In Charge If He Won.  We've seen what a train wreck it is just to have Joe Biden do simple things like give a speech or answer questions in an interview.  He even appears to need a teleprompter to do softball interviews with James Corden, as we reported.  His team has refused to answer questions about his use of a teleprompter and they evaded the question yet again, instead claiming he is "out there everyday, taking questions" which in fact is not the case.  He's largely avoided taking questions except for a couple of softball questions over the course of the whole week, hardly taking questions "everyday."  So who's actually going to be in charge if Joe can't even do such simple things?  Well, let's hear from both Joe Biden and Kamala Harris on that question.  Biden admits if America voted him in, it would be a "Harris-Biden administration."

Joe Biden Received Five Deferments from Serving During Vietnam Conflict.  The left always finds a reason to pick on Donald Trump.  Without fail, they always find a reason to be upset with him, spending a good deal of their time digging into his past.  For years now, they have Dubbed President Trump, "Captain Bonespurs" in relation to Trump's deferments during the Vietnam era.  Trump received five deferments during that time, 4 for education related deferments and 1 for bad feet, or as diagnosed by a doctor, bone spurs.  Well as it turns out, Joe Biden himself also was the beneficiary of numerous deferments during the same era.  According to Newsday in 2008, Joe Biden received 5 deferments as well.

Biden:  A Cheapskate Who Prefers to Tax Others Than Give His Own Money.  Whenever Joe Biden speaks of compassion during the coming weeks, it is worth remembering how his willingness to make meaningful contributions of his own money to those most in need is newly arrived.  For much of his career he treated the poor as someone else's problem.  That does not bode well for the policies he is likely to pursue if elected president.

After Being Introduced at Latino Event by Puerto Rican Singer Luis Fonsi, Biden Pulls Out His Phone and Starts Playing Despacito.  Joe Biden traveled to Florida on Tuesday to pander to the Latino community as he loses support from Hispanic voters.  Biden traveled to Kissimmee after holding a disaster roundtable event with veterans in Tampa.  Ricky Martin and Eva Longoria were at the Kissimmee event desperately trying to help Biden connect to the Latino community as the former VP arrived almost two hours late for his speech.

The Editor says...
Apparently Mr. Biden had one public event that day, because if there had been more than one event, every news media outlet would have gushed about what a tireless worker he is.  He has his own airplane, limousines, and numerous handlers.  Why would he show up two hours late for this speech?

Forget the Polls:  Massive Enthusiasm Gap Between Trump and Biden Bodes Ill for Democrats.  Although Joe Biden continues to lead President Trump in most national polls, the enthusiasm gap between the two candidates could not be more striking.  The situation is reminiscent of the 2016 race, only there is even less enthusiasm for Biden than there was for Hillary Clinton.  Trump draws huge crowds wherever he appears while Biden can barely muster a few dozen socially distanced quasi-supporters at his meager, tightly scripted events.  As American Greatness previously documented, massive grassroots pro-Trump boat parades have been a thing all year, although they have been mostly unnoticed or ignored by the national media.

Biden's Sign Language Interpreter Is Declared 'the Real MVP' After Latest Virtual Appearance Disaster.  I don't know how much Joe Biden's campaign is paying their sign language interpreters, but my guess is that they're not compensating them nearly enough for the Herculean effort it takes to keep up with the 2020 Democratic presidential nominee when he goes off-script and/or starts rambling.  The latest instance of a sign language interpreter giving it his all was Monday night during a virtual appearance Biden made during "an online convocation of the Poor People's Campaign."  During one segment, Biden was saying something about "environmental justice" but the message got lost in the translation big time — not just from listening to whatever it was Biden was trying to say but also from watching the interpreter's gestures.  [Video clip]

Watch: Joe Biden Pitches 'Harris-Biden Administration' to Florida Veterans.  Former Vice President Joe Biden pitched U.S. military veterans on the notion of a "Harris-Biden administration" on Tuesday afternoon [9/15/2020] during a campaign swing through Florida. [...] "It's so much harder for military spouses to find good jobs and build their careers," the Democrat nominee said.  "We have to change that and we're working on it... for example making it easier to carry your professional credentials with you, from one state to another, when your spouse moves.  "The Harris-Biden administration will relaunch that effort and make it easier for military spouses and veterans meaningful careers, to ensure teachers know how to support military children in the classroom, and to improve support for caregivers and survivors so much more than we do now," the former vice president added.

The Editor says...
Kamala Harris is emitting the same dog whistle — accidentally, of course.

If Biden can't answer questions without a script, how can he run the country?  Time and again, teleprompter troubles have exposed the fact that Biden is just reading his lines in what his campaign pretends are real conversations with supporters, like Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf.  He's not even answering reporters' questions off the cuff:  "Look, Venezuela topline message is ..." he told an NBC Miami reporter — obviously just reading the talking points he was handed in advance.  He's also given multiple interviews with his eyes down, clearly relying on prepared notes in his lap.  This simply is not the Joe Biden of decades past, who might put his foot in his mouth but never needed a script to say what he thinks.

Report: State Memos Confirm Obama-Biden Admin Knew Burisma Was Corrupt While Hunter Served on Board.  The Obama administration allowed then-Vice President Joe Biden's son Hunter to continue working at Ukrainian gas firm Burisma, even after U.S. officials established "strong" evidence suggesting that the company had engaged in corrupt activities in 2014, Just the News reported Monday [9/14/2020], citing State Department memos and interviews.  Hunter, the son of now-Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden, served on Burisma Holding's board of directors from April 2014 to April 2019, getting paid tens of thousands of dollars each month, more than the average executives with similar positions.

Where's Hunter:  State Dept.  Documents Show Burisma Caught Paying $7 million Bribe Months After Hunter Biden Placed on Its Board.  State Department documents were buried for five years and finally uncovered that show that Burisma, the company Hunter Biden was a Board member of, paid a $7 million bribe to local prosecutors investigating the Ukrainian firm's corruption.

The Biden bubble:  How the 77-year-old's team bark at him to 'keep back' from people amid strict social distancing.  Joe Biden's team are said to adhere to strict social distancing rules in an effort to shield the 77-year-old from the coronavirus.  New details shed light on his team's approach to protecting the Democratic presidential candidate, including orders for him to 'keep back' at public events.  Biden's cars and planes are also said to be constantly disinfected, as is the equipment he uses right before he gives speeches, Politico reports.

'Keep back!': How the Biden campaign obsesses over Covid.  Joe Biden's chartered airplanes and SUVs are meticulously sprayed with disinfectant and scrubbed.  The microphones, lecterns and folders he uses are wiped down in the moments before his arrival.  News reporters covering the campaign have their temperature taken.  People he meets are scanned in advance with thermometer wands and guests at his events are cordoned off in precise locations mapped out with a tape measure.  The former vice president is seldom without a mask when in public or around anyone other than his wife, Jill Biden.  Access to their home is limited to only a few staffers — and when they're inside, each wears a mask, including Biden.  The level of discipline is such that at times when someone stops to take a drink of water, that person will turn their head away from the others to reduce the chances of scattering droplets, according to campaign aides.

Joe Biden Tries to Have It Both Ways on Anti-Police Violence.  Organized anti-police violence is escalating in Democrat-run cities in Democrat-run states.  Polling is showing that the Biden campaign is bleeding out over the issue of BLM and Antifa rioting and the inability of the Biden campaign to come out strongly against civil unrest because its core supporters are either in the streets or whipping up hatred to get other people to riot.  Over the weekend, two LA County Sheriff's deputies were critically wounded in what can only be described as an attempt at a targeted killing. [...] This attack was a logical and foreseeable consequence of the statements and actions and rhetoric of Democrat-elected officials across the nation stoking hatred of police and coddling the people who carry out attacks on police.  And those attacks and the anti-police violence is a feature of the Biden campaign.  Several Biden staffers have donated money to the fund that bails out violent rioters, particularly those who have assaulted police officers in Portland and Seattle.  Kamala Harris has encouraged people to donate to that fund.

New evidence makes Hunter Biden's 'business' deals reek worse than ever.  Foreign entities looking to influence American politics sometimes devise lucrative commercial deals involving a politician's family.  While the deals can, and do, ensnare politicians of all stripes, those involving the Biden family are particularly troubling:  The transactions implicate US national security.  While Joe Biden served as vice president, his son Hunter received offers from foreign governments and oligarchs in areas where the he had little or no expertise.  That his foreign partners included a rival state, Communist China, make these arrangements particularly brazen, even by Washington's swampy standards.  Newly released Secret Service travel records for Hunter paint a clearer picture of how extensive these efforts were.

By then, it would be much too late.
Joe Biden Pledges 'Complete' Health Transparency If Elected President.  Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has pledged that he will make information about his health publicly available and commit to "complete health transparency" — but only if he's elected president.  In an interview with CNN over the weekend, Biden was asked about his overall health.  He's 78 years old — just slightly older than President Donald Trump — and a number of individuals have questioned his fitness to serve as president (though many of those critics are not among his political allies, and include the president himself).  "Biden, who will be 78 in November, would be the oldest president in U.S. history," Axios reported Monday [9/14/2020].  "The Trump campaign has sought to cast doubt on Biden's mental faculties and physical fitness for office — attacks that the former vice president has frequently laughed off."  Biden told CNN host Jake Tapper that he is in good health but would be "forthcoming" if he were to encounter any major health issues while serving in office.

That's like a heart surgeon offering to produce his credentials after he performs surgery on you, when you've already got your doubts.  Would you wait that long?  Of course not.

Biden Flees Podium Before Reporters Can Ask Questions After He Accuses Trump of Destroying America's Suburbs.  77-year-old Joe Biden on Monday [9/14/2020] delivered remarks on climate change and the wildfires ravaging western states from a field in Wilmington, Delaware.  Biden blamed President Trump for the wildfires caused by arsonists and failed Democrat policies that have reduced the number of controlled burns.  "If you give a climate arsonist four more years in the White House, why would anyone be surprised if we have more America ablaze?" Biden said.  He added:  If Trump wins again, "how many suburbs will be burned in wildfires?  How many suburban neighborhoods will have been flooded out?  How many suburbs will have been blown away in superstorms?"

Wow!  Joe Biden thinks President Trump has complete control over the weather.  Amazing!

No, wait.  Joe Biden has complete control of the weather!
Joe Biden Promises Fewer Fires, Floods,and Hurricanes if He Wins in November.  On Monday [9/14/2020], Democratic nominee Joe Biden condemned President Donald Trump as a "climate arsonist," predicting that if the president wins reelection in November, America will witness more "hellish" events like fires in the West, flooding in the Midwest, and hurricanes on the East Coast.  He effectively promised that if he wins, America will suffer from fewer fires, fewer floods, and fewer hurricanes.

Chris Wallace Embarrasses Biden by Exposing His Failed Response to the Virus.  Joe Biden has pretended that he had some great understanding of the pandemic in January but can't explain why he called cutting travel with China "hysterical xenophobia" and said cutting travel with Europe in March wouldn't stop the virus.  While Trump was acting to stop the virus, Biden was attacking that cutting of travel which Dr. Anthony Fauci confirmed, saved countless lives.  In fact, Biden didn't actually come out in support of cutting travel until April 2.  And he held rallies and didn't do social distancing until almost the middle of March.  Where has the media been to call out Biden for this?

Joe Biden Admits It — He's Coming for Your Guns.  Watching the disconnect between how the media tries to portray Biden and how he portrays himself is a sight to behold at times.  Constantly, we are bombarded with claims that the former VP is "moderate" and steady.  He wouldn't do anything too crazy, right?  Well, except abolish the filibuster and pass a bunch of progressive dream bills that is.  But does that really make him not a moderate?  This is the kind of idiotic logic we've had to endure since Biden became the presumptive nominee, and his position on guns is no different.  In fact, Biden took to social media yesterday [9/13/2020] to proclaim exactly what he's going to do when it comes to the Second Amendment.

Biden, 'The Great and Powerful'.  For six months, Biden has run a Zoom campaign on the pretext of mandatory quarantines — our current version of a 19th-century, stationary presidential candidate, who campaigned by spitting out wit and wisdom while immovable on his front porch.  Biden has conducted no free-wheeling, unscripted press conferences.  He will not do extended one-on-one interviews with a disinterested journalist.  He rarely will even try Trump-like cameo appearances on CNN or MSNBC to answer unscripted questions from supporters.  His press events instead are Orwellian, requiring a media mass suspension of disbelief.  The questions are canned.  They are submitted in advance by "journalists," whether formally or via electronic chatter.  The inquiries are obsequious — seldom a word about Hunter Biden, China, Biden's troubling racist remarks, his handsy past, his scary cognitive lapses, or his "contract" with Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.).  Instead the softball, known-in-advance inquiries are in spirit carried over from the Obama years, phrased in the manner of "Were you outraged enough by Trump's outrage?"  Biden's Oz functionaries seemingly are always experimenting with all sorts of screen props.  The trick is to discover how best their challenged candidate can square the circle of completing sentences and remaining semi-coherent, while not giving away the game that his illusionists are feeding him answers to synthetic questions.

Startling anonymous post from a claimed Biden ex-staffer lays out the alleged depths of his dementia.  The Biden campaign clearly is hiding their candidate from exposure to circumstances that might test his mental acuity and vigor on a sustained basis.  We now have direct evidence that the campaign has been deceiving the public by using a teleprompter for Biden to read when allegedly answering questions in an alleged interview.  The campaign's chief spokesman evaded answering a direct question about teleprompter use during faux interviews.  Thus, we know that the critical question of Biden's ability to discharge his duties if elected is being deceptively evaded.  That, in my mind, opens the door to consider what is claimed to be an insider's account of the true state of Biden's health, now that we know his campaign would deceive us on this question.  What follows is a transcript of a posting that originally appeared online [elsew]here.  While remaining utterly skeptical, please see how well the allegations fit with the behavior that we have seen.  To my mind, they fit observable Biden behavior like a glove.

'Riding the Dragon' documentary alleges Biden family self-enrichment from China.  BlazeTV has released a new documentary titled "Riding the Dragon:  The Bidens' Chinese Secrets."  The film features investigative journalist and author Peter Schweizer and Schweizer's revelations of Chinese influence over the Biden family found in the 2018 book "Secret Empires" and the more recent "Profiles in Corruption" (both #1 New York Times bestsellers).  Produced by Lightspeed Pictures in association with Blaze Media, the documentary is broken into six chapters, each dissecting a different deal that the Bidens made with the Chinese government — including one deal in which China planned to invest more than $1 billion in the Hunter Biden-co-owned investment fund Bohai Harvest RST (BHR).  Hunter Biden alone pocketed millions of dollars while his father served as Barack Obama's vice president and "point man" on China policy.

Obama's biggest accomplishment came when he didn't listen to Biden.  Joe Biden has been trying to embrace Barack Obama's record because he doesn't have one of his own, but the former vice president didn't fair well in what arguably was the 43rd president's biggest accomplishment, argues Dan McLaughlin in an analysis for National Review.  The best moment of Obama's presidency was the May 2011 raid into Pakistan that killed Osama bin Laden.  But it happened only because Obama ignored Biden when the vice president said, "Mr. President, my suggestion is, don't go."  "Biden is all too aware that he got the biggest decision of the Obama presidency wrong, which is why he changed his story years later to claim that he had actually supported the raid," McLaughlin writes.

CBS reporter tweets about Biden not 'outworking' Trump.  CBS reporter Kathryn Watson questioned why Joe Biden wasn't campaigning more after news broke that the former vice president was not expected to have public events Saturday [9/12/2020].  "Not sure why Biden isn't doing more to show he can outwork Trump," Watson tweeted Saturday in response to Politico reporter Jake Sherman announcing a lid had been called in Wilmington, Del., meaning no events for Biden.  "And yes I realize there's a pandemic and he shouldn't be out shaking hands.  But he has a team of experienced people at his disposal to think up creative ways to campaign safely," she added.

Biden Says We Need a President Who Tells the Truth.  Biden was a sponsor of the 1994 crime bill he now runs away from.  It is his single biggest legislative accomplishment and one the Obama administration never sought to remedy despite the sentencing disparities it caused.  There is so much in this video that Biden has run away from — especially regarding racial oppression and economic disadvantage — that it is wildly funny.  Will the real Joe Biden please stand up?  [Video clip]

Every Card is the Race Card, But They're Not Playing with a Full Deck.  In 2020, there is no such apprehension, or even hesitation, from Democrats when it comes to infusing race into any argument.  There is no topic, no person, and no group that is off-limits.  There also seems to be a direct correlation between the weakness of their argument on a particular issue and the vociferousness with which the race card is played in defending it.  Voter ID laws, for instance, vary by state and apply equally along all racial lines; there is no evidence that such laws are racist.  But that did not stop Joe Biden from stating, "It's what these guys are all about, man.  Republicans don't want working-class people voting.  They don't want black folks voting."  No evidence, just the race card, and our leftwing/mainstream media did not even challenge him on his assertion.

Oops: Did Joe Biden Accidentally Show Us His Super-Secret Teleprompter For 'Spontaneous' Interviews Months Ago?  After months of suspicions that Joe Biden has been using a teleprompter for interviews, campaign press secretary T.J. Ducklo had a near meltdown on Fox News when asked by Bret Baier to respond to the allegations.  "This is straight from the Trump campaign talking points," Ducklo said, dodging the question, before repeatedly refusing to give Baier a yes or no response to the question.  While it's obvious to many of us that Biden is clearly using a teleprompter for interviews that are presented as off-the-cuff, the Biden campaign clearly doesn't want to admit it.  Unfortunately for them, it seems Joe Biden may have already answered the question back in April, during an appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden.

The Bishops Bail Out Biden.  Were the Republicans to run a Catholic for president who supported, say, segregation, the bishops wouldn't hesitate to condemn that figure and warn their congregations not to vote for him.  But the bishops apply no such condemnation or warning to Joe Biden, who is a dissenter in favor of abortion rights and gay marriage.  Even Biden's officiating at gay marriages, an egregiously disobedient act for a Catholic, is met with silence from most bishops.  While Pope Francis felt no reservations about condemning Trump's faith — he called him "not Christian" for supporting border walls — he and his like-minded bishops refuse to question Biden's.  Instead, the pope's surrogates spend their time defending a vote for the Democratic Party, in spite of its openly anti-Catholic agenda.  "It's not a sin for Catholics to vote Democrat," says Jesuit Father James Martin.  Imagine Martin writing that it is not a sin to vote for a segregationist.  It would never happen.  But he has no problem running interference for a pol who supports late-term abortions.

A Biden talk show appearance has definitively answered the teleprompter question.  For months now, people have been wondering whether all of Biden's appearances, including the easy ones, are scripted.  Now we know the truth.  For the Biden campaign, the Wuhan virus has been a benefit.  It's allowed Biden to conduct his interviews from the safety of his own home.  Because there are no public appearances, his campaign can keep secret whether Biden relies on a teleprompter for even friendly, casual interviews.  Videos of Biden's slip-ups suggested that he was using a teleprompter, but the campaign wasn't talking.  Now, though, a sharp-eyed viewer looking at footage of Biden talking to James Corden believes he's exposed Biden's secret:  Even for friendly, inconsequential interviews, Biden and his interlocutors have a script.

Looks Like Biden May Have Gotten Busted With the Teleprompter During an Interview.  Watching Joe Biden answering questions during interviews and it's pretty clear that he often appears to be reading from a teleprompter.  We've reported on it in several posts including here.  He literally tells them to move it up so he can read the answer and then obviously reads it.  [Video clip] [...] So where is the media asking why is he using a teleprompter to answer interview questions?  And is he not only getting help answering the questions, is he also being given the questions in advance?  As we reported, Fox's Bret Baier actually asked Biden advisor, T.J. Ducklo, yes or no, was Biden using a teleprompter in interviews and significantly, Ducklo refused to answer the question, trying every which way to duck it.  [Video clip]

Joe Biden continues to lose notes, mind.  Only 16 days to the first presidential debate, and Dementia Joe Biden is resting up this weekend after a hard week of hitting the road, Jack.  Only one problem for Joe:  Whenever he ventures outside his basement, he often loses stuff — his mind, his train of thought or at least his notes.  All dialogue guaranteed verbatim:  "I carry with me — I don't have it.  I gave it, I gave it to my staff.  I carry it with me in my pocket a — do I have that around anyone?  Where's my staff?  I gave it away anyway ..."  He must have found something, because soon he began reading — or trying to read — some statistics.  Numbers are not Dementia Joe's forte, to put it mildly.  This day, he kept repeating the word "military." But the actual virus numbers were for Michigan, the state he was in, in addition to his perpetual state of confusion.  Perhaps his handlers wrote "MI," assuming that even someone as simple as Joe Biden could put two and two together.  If so, they were misinformed.

Joe Biden's Money Misadventures.  The portrait of Joe Biden that emerges from What It Takes (1992), Richard Ben Cramer's thousand-page New Journalism-style report on the 1988 presidential race, in which Biden ran for a few steps until he stumbled over his own shoelaces, is a familiar one.  Biden is the grinning, overconfident oaf, a strutting salesman who keeps selling himself loads of bull manure even as everyone around him becomes alarmed by his obliviousness to facts. [...] The story of Joe Biden is where staggering incompetence meets irrepressible self-confidence.  The more he fails, the more convinced he becomes that he's right.

Joe Biden's Two 'Colleges of Collusion'.  [Scroll down]  The staff of the Penn Biden Center is composed almost exclusively of ex-White House and State or Defense Department officials for Biden and President Obama, even though Penn has a posted six-step hiring process for executive staff and must keep all documents on file for three years.  What are the chances that such a process would come upon former Iran Nuclear Deal staffer Colin Kahl or lobbyist Daniel Erikson of Blue Star Strategies, a firm deeply entwined with Biden's son Hunter in the Burisma natural gas scandal?  The Penn Biden Center, despite its stated mission, does not provide any academic instruction, and has not held an event since a 2017 Chicago conference, so one could be forgiven for not hearing about it or the $775,000 in salary that Biden has earned from it since its opening.  In May, the National Legal Policy Center, a conservative watchdog group, filed a complaint with the Department of Education demanding that the PBC disclose anonymous gifts, including $22 million that originated from the People's Republic of China.

Joe Biden Appears To Lose His Train Of Thought While Trying To Deny He Is 'Slow Joe'.  Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden appeared to lose his train of thought during an interview that aired Thursday on CNN while trying to deny that he was "Slow Joe." [...] Just this week, Biden appeared to not understand that "MI" was an abbreviation for the state of Michigan — where he was speaking — and was not an abbreviation for the military.  Biden has often struggled to remember basic things related to location while on the campaign trail.  Below are a few examples from just a single month on the campaign trail.

The Bidens' Chinese Secrets (Full Documentary).  [This video is somewhat informative, perhaps, but there appears to be ten minutes of information crammed into this 41-minute documentary.  I'm extrapolating generously from the eight minutes that I watched (at double speed).  The whole thing appears to have been edited by someone with severe ADHD and an attention span of about one second.  It would have been much more effective with less music, fewer phony sound effects, and fewer superfluous dips to black for dramatic effect.  The introduction is three minutes long.  Unless you really hate Joe Biden a lot, this documentary is tiresome at best.  Wait, I left out insipid.]

No, Biden Didn't Support Trump's China Travel Ban.  Joe Biden's national press secretary claimed Thursday [9/10/2020] that the former vice president was in favor of President Donald Trump's decision to restrict travel from China, but all of Biden's public comments, including from the day the decision was announced, indicate otherwise.  "Joe Biden has been clear that he was not against that travel ban at the time," TJ Ducklo told Fox News anchor Bret Baier.  Ducklo's claim contrasts with Biden's previous statements on the travel restrictions, including some made on the very day the policy was announced.

Why Biden Will Withdraw From the Debates.  At this point, putting Biden on a stage without a script can only hurt his election prospects, and possibly even harm his health.  That's why I predict his team will soon announce his withdrawal from all three scheduled debates with President Trump. [...] Biden's appearance in Kenosha indicates that his mental and physical decline has accelerated.  Many, including myself, found his performance shocking and more than a little sad.  Throughout his roughly 45-minute speech, he seems to be moving in slow motion.  He's unsure of his movements.  He's frail and stoop-shouldered.  He appears to be out of breath much of the time.  He mumbles and slurs his words.  Worse, he commits dozens of mistakes, messing up lines from old speeches and making a hash of new material.  The result is an inedible stew of words, chock-full of non sequiturs, filler phrases, thought fragments, and gibberish.

Who Will Tell the Truth About Joe Biden?  The inability of the mainstream media to accurately cover any of Joe Biden's foibles is truly astonishing. [...] Consider that in the last four months alone, Biden has asked a reporter if he was a "junkie," told black voters that they're not really black unless they vote for him, and said that there were "over 120 million dead from COVID," in the U.S., without suffering any backlash from the media.  He has confused the location of where he was speaking from, and was led by hand by a staffer out of a venue, as though he were blind.  He has read his talking point notes out loud during a virtual interview, "Look, Venezuela topline message is President Trump's policy is an abject failure." He can lose his entire train of thought during a roundtable discussion in which he has prepared notes in front of him, "You know the rapidly rising umm uh in with uh with I don't know," without so much as a peep from the media.  Can anyone imagine what the headlines and constant barrage of media outrage would be if President Donald Trump had said or done any of those things?

Biden:  From No Campaign to Faux Campaign.  Biden continues to choose a campaign without campaigning.  He intends to stay insulated until pushed to engage; then, when he must engage, he will do so only to the limit pressure requires. [...] Biden is gambling that current circumstances — political and health-related alike — allow him to successfully eschew a modern presidential campaign.  He is betting the White House that a faux campaign can replace a fall campaign.

Fact Check:  Did Biden Deplete the National Stockpile of Face Masks and Not Replenish It?  CLAIM: The Obama-Biden White House depleted and did not replenish the nation's emergency stockpile of medical supplies, including N95 masks.  Joe Biden is attempting to rewrite history, pretending that he and Obama didn't deplete the nation's stockpile of medical supplies and leave it empty after the pair's eight years together in office.  It's the same revisionism they're attempting to do with travel restrictions that President Trump placed on China in the early days of the pandemic.  Biden not only opposed those restrictions — restrictions that even Dr. Fauci credits with saving an untold number of lives — Biden attacked the restrictions as "racist" and "xenophobic."  The Democrats didn't care about saving lives.  They were using the opportunity to smear Trump as a racist.  In a now-deleted tweet, Nancy Pelosi invited everyone to ignore the president and head on down to Chinatown.  It's pathetic, and now Joe Biden is pretending like he didn't set the whole country up for disaster when he and Obama burned through our stockpile of medical supplies and never replenished it.  So, what's the verdict?  Is it true?  VERDICT: Yup.  It's TRUE, according to USA Today.

Amid evidence of scripted campaigning, questions about Biden mental stamina, acuity multiply.  Democratic nominee Joe Biden is drawing fire for what appear to be carefully staged campaign events in which he does not seem willing or able to answer questions in an offhand or impromptu manner.  This has led some critics to question his mental stamina and acuity as a candidate seeking the most powerful office in the world.  President Trump on Thursday [9/10/2020] chided rival Biden for a nearly seven-second delay in Biden's answer to a video question from a barista in a virtual AFL-CIO Labor Day event.  Unable to immediately answer the barista's question, Biden delayed and struggled to find words, instructing an off-camera handler:  "Move it up here."  It was an apparent request for a more rapid scroll down inside the teleprompter script.  "Every time I see him, he starts talking about the pandemic.  He's reading it off a teleprompter," Trump said Thursday at a White House press conference.

Hunter Biden Partnered with China Military Contractor Notorious for Stealing US Military Technology to Acquire Michigan Parts Manufacturer.  In 2015, Hunter's Bohai Harvest joined forces with the Chinese military contractor; Aviation Industry Corporation of China (AVIC), to buy American parts manufacturer; Henniges Automotive.  AVIC has been identified as front for China's military.  Hunter Biden's partner in the Henniges deal, AVIC, was notorious for it's history of stealing U.S. military technology to build their own fighter jets and drones.

President Trump may be battered by the waves, but he will not sink.  Anyone paying attention realizes that the left is floundering, desperate, because leftists know that Biden is an illegitimate and failed candidate.  He has failed as a member of the D.C. establishment for forty-seven years.  No one can name a single positive accomplishment of Biden's while there are numerous embarrassing incidents — his episodes of plagiarism; his many, many lies about his own family background and résumé; his vicious abuse of Clarence Thomas; and his lifelong use of his position to enrich himself and his family.  Biden is not a good man.  He is not a man of substance or achievement, nor does he have a shred of actual honor.  As for his wife, the (not a medical) Doctor Jill, she should be hoist with her own petard for putting her obviously failing husband through a campaign over which he is clearly unfit to preside or lead.

Biden Opposed Bin Laden Raid; Bin Laden Thought Biden Would Destroy U.S., Wanted Him To Be POTUS.  Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden told then-President Barack Obama not to launch a raid to kill Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, who wanted to assassinate Obama because he thought if Biden were president, he would destroy America. [...] "According to the various accounts of administration officials involved in the internal debate, Biden was one of the two main skeptics of the intelligence suggesting that bin Laden was in Abbottabad.  He publicly even stated that he said 'don't go' until more intelligence was gathered," the Washington Post reported.  "So it's certainly clear he advised Obama not to go at that moment when Obama's advisers were debating the issue.  No matter what he said to Obama privately, he cannot so easily argue that he did not offer this guidance."  Bin Laden, on the other hand, wanted to push the U.S. into "crisis" by assassinating Obama and thrusting "totally unprepared" Biden into the presidency.

Biden's Press Secretary Flips Out When if Asked Biden Uses a Teleprompter During Interviews.  For months now, it's been clear that Joe Biden has been using a teleprompter for supposedly off-the-cuff campaign interviews and conversations.  In April, when Bernie endorsed Joe Biden, they had a live stream conversation on Periscope where it was clear Biden was reading off a script.  Since then there's been a lot more evidence of Biden reading off a teleprompter, and rather poorly, even during interviews with the media.  While appearing on Fox News on Thursday [9/10/2020], Biden's national press secretary, TJ Ducklo, had an opportunity to go on the record on this issue but refused.

The Real Joe Biden and Anita Hill.  Earlier this week Joe Biden got a strange endorsement, a blast from the past.  It came from Anita Hill, the law professor whose sensational allegations against Clarence Thomas during his confirmation hearings in 1991 riveted the nation and humiliated Thomas, forever tarnishing his character and reputation.  Those hearings before the Senate Judiciary Committee were chaired by Sen. Joe Biden. [...] That Biden had engaged in "unfair" treatment against Anita Hill has been the narrative among the Left for a while — or at least during the Democratic primary season.  Funny, we conservatives would argue that Clarence Thomas seemed a victim of unfair treatment — what Thomas memorably called a "high-tech lynching."  But that's not how a liberal thinks.

Video montage shows how media take it easy on Biden.  A new video montage from The Washington Free Beacon shows how easy the questions Joe Biden receives from the media truly are.  Free Beacon senior writer and "video guy" David Rutz put together a sampling of the rather simplistic line of questioning the Democratic candidate has received in recent weeks.  "Really, your strength is in traveling around the country and connecting with people... you can't do any of that right now.  Mr. Vice President, does that worry you?" CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin is seen asking Biden at the beginning of the interview.  The video featured multiple journalists who asked softball questions at last week's rare Biden press conference.

Who's the Real Joe Biden?  [Scroll down]  It was his lack of qualities or principles that made Biden an appealing running mate for Barack Obama.  Obama did not want a strong personality competing with his own vision for the country.  In Biden he apparently saw a politician who would go along with anything.  Does the real Joe Biden really support Medicare for All?  The question is moot because there is no "real" Joe Biden.  Does he support defense cuts or increases?  It depends on the polls.  Does he support slavery reparations or federal spending on abortion?  It depends on whether these stances add votes.  Even questions of public support for one position or another are rendered irrelevant by the fact that Biden would likely be, and see himself as, a one-term president.  As such, he would have free rein to support whatever positions he liked, however unpopular.  But that raises the problematic issue of what Biden "likes."  Other than a desire to become president, it's difficult to say.

Joe Biden Arrives in Michigan and is Greeted by a Crowd of Trump Supporters Chanting "4 More Years!" — And ZERO Biden Supporters.  The internal polls must be bad for Biden because he left his Delaware basement and headed to Michigan on Wednesday [9/9/2020].  Biden, who openly supported NAFTA, will be speaking at an event in the Detroit suburb of Warren and will reportedly propose a new policy aimed at tackling "offshoring."  As Biden arrived in Michigan, he was greeted by a crowd of Trump supporters!  Trump supporters waved American flags and Trump 2020 flags chanting, "Four more years!  Four more years!"

'Sleepy Joe' Appears to Use Teleprompter to Answer Scripted Questions During AFL-CIO Zoom Event.  During a virtual event with AFL-CIO members Monday night [9/7/2020], a seemingly exhausted and befuddled Joe Biden appeared to ask his staff to "move up" a teleprompter before he could answer a question.  The request came right after a barista named Rebecca Vedrine asked the Democrat presidential nominee what his administration planned to do to help 60 million non-union workers vote for union jobs.  "What would you do to help give them that chance?" Vedrine asked.  "Move it up here," the sleepy-looking Biden ordered his staff.  After a long pause, he began a long and highly detailed answer:

Hunter Biden's Chinese Firm Helped Buy Out Michigan Automotive Company to Create Jobs Overseas.  Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden delivered a speech in Macomb County, Michigan, on Wednesday, slamming the practice of outsourcing.  Unmentioned was his son Hunter's ties to a Chinese government acquisition of a Michigan company that is delivering jobs to China, Mexico, Europe, and South America.  "Make it in Michigan, make it in America, invest in our communities and the workers in places like Warren ... Getting a good job in 2020 shouldn't be a lottery ... it should be an expectation," Biden told American auto workers.  Biden's pitch, though, is muffled by his son Hunter's ties to the Chinese government.

CNN plays with alternative history by airing altered Biden family photo.  CNN this week aired an altered family photo of Democratic nominee Joe Biden and his son, Hunter.  The original picture shows Hunter wearing a cap bearing the logo of the football team then known as the Washington Redskins.  But the photo that appeared Monday on CNN shows no sign of the football team's Native American-based logo.  The Biden campaign is responsible for the edits.  It maintains it airbrushed the photo for copyright purposes.  "We removed the image because it is copyrighted, as is a very common practice on campaigns," an aide said Wednesday [9/9/2020].  A spokesperson for CNN confirmed that, going forward, the cable network will show only the unedited version of the picture.

The Editor says...
Translation:  We'll never show that picture again.

Biden campaign admits removing Washington Redskins logo from family photo, cites copyright concerns.  The Biden campaign confirmed Wednesday that it was behind the removal of a Washington Redskins logo from a decades-old photograph of Joe Biden and his young son.  The logo-less photo aired on CNN Monday night [9/7/2020] during a special called "Fight for the White House:  Joe Biden's Long Journey."  A campaign aide told Fox News the logo was removed from the photo because it is "copyrighted" and claimed that such a step is "a very common practice on campaigns."  Washingtonian Magazine, citing a CNN source, first reported that the network had received the altered photograph from the Biden campaign.  The source vowed to Washingtonian that future airings of the special would feature the original image.

Fact Check:  Joe Biden Falsely Claims 6,114 Military Dead from Coronavirus; Real Number Is 7.  Former Vice President Joe Biden has been attacking President Donald Trump for remarks that The Atlantic claimed he made about dead soldiers in war (and which over twenty witnesses have publicly refuted). On Wednesday, Biden commented on soldiers who had died during the coronavirus pandemic — and overstated the number by a factor of nearly one thousand.  Biden was speaking to members of the United Auto Workers in Michigan.  After fumbling about for a card listing U.S. military deaths in Afghanistan and Iraq, which he said he always kept with him — but which he had given to his staff — Biden read the casualty numbers for those wars, along with those for the coronavirus.

Biden botches military coronavirus death count, campaign says he accidentally cited Michigan number.  Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden misspoke during a campaign stop in Michigan, incorrectly saying that over 6,000 U.S. military members have died from the novel coronavirus.  Speaking in Warren, Mich., Biden cited the number of confirmed cases and deaths from COVID-19 in Michigan as being the numbers for the military, saying the armed forces had seen 118,984 cases and 6,114 deaths.  Shortly after the event, Biden's campaign quickly clarified that Biden had mixed up the numbers for Michigan with those from military.  As of Wednesday, only seven members of the military had died from COVID-19.

Biden's Lethal Latino Problem.  Joe Biden has the weakest Latino support of any recent Democratic presidential nominee.  Former Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama each received more than 70 percent of their votes, and 66 percent cast their ballots for Hillary Clinton in 2016.  Former Vice President Biden, however, appears to be on track to capture as little as 60 percent of the Latino vote.  Considering that Latinos constitute more than 10 percent of eligible voters in a dozen states, including crucial battlegrounds such as Florida (20 percent) and Arizona (23 percent), it's difficult to see how Biden can win a majority in the Electoral College unless he quickly improves his standing among these voters.

'Ask Me Anything!': Joe Biden Asks For Questions in Instagram Q&A, Doesn't Answer Any.  2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden told his Instagram followers to "Ask me anything!" after announcing he would be answering questions on the app.  Over 24 hours later, however, the former vice president has yet to answer any.  "I'm answering your questions.  Ask me anything!" Biden declared in an Instagram story, with a submission box for followers to ask their questions.  Over the next 24 hours, Biden did not appear to reply to a single question publicly on his Instagram account, instead posting campaign graphics, merchandise promotions, and a link to his interview with rapper Cardi B.

Joe Biden Makes a Campaign Stop in Michigan and It Was Just as Bad as You Imagined.  It is pretty obvious that Biden is just as uncomfortable outside his basement as his campaign staff is having him leave it.  It has to be tough on Biden.  He's on that leading edge of full-blown senile dementia where he's still cognizant enough to a) remember what he used to be like, b) to realize that he's [messed] up right now, and c) to know that it's not going to get better with time.  In another couple of months, he won't have those worries.

When it Comes to Biden, Dems Say Don't Believe Your Lying Eyes.  Or Ears.  Or Brain..  The visuals are frightening and sad.  Biden's frail and hunched over, and he "shuffles" more than he "walks."  He has that frightened look in his eyes, something everyone who's watched a loved one fade unfortunately recognizes.  That elderly loved one is increasingly scared — too much information incoming, not enough circuitry left to quickly compute it.  The world is changing on him, and not in a good way.  And you, formerly beloved, are gradually becoming unrecognizable.  Biden, at 77, has that look. [...] Joe's not having any original thoughts in public, folks, or at least his handlers certainly don't want him to.  He's reading everything off cue cards or teleprompters — and doing that badly.  Watching him lose his place and wander around linguistically, trying to construct a related thought or, frankly, any thought, and failing is ineffably sad.  Read the transcripts of some of Biden's latest utterances, and you'll see just how tangled poor Joe's mental web is.

An Inebriated Looking Joe Biden Proclaims Trump Wants to 'Defund the Police'.  I guess we are going to just go full alter-reality as we approach November.  That's apparently Joe Biden's plan to combat the charge that he wants to defund the police.  And to be sure, Biden has proposed redirecting money (i.e. defunding) and "reimagining" how policing happens.  But when asked about his position, Biden mumbled his way through his talking points proclaiming that it's actually Trump who wants to defund the police.

If Biden Wins, China Wins, and America Loses.  The New York Times on Monday published a 3,100-word story headlined "Joe Biden's China Journey."  The three reporters whose bylines appear on the article engage in a painfully obvious effort to explain away the former vice president's long and cozy relationship with communist China.  Now, at long last, they suggest, Biden is ready to get really tough on China.  Tougher even than Trump.  Good luck to them selling that fractured fairy tale.  Biden has appeased China and advanced its interests for as long as I've been paying attention to China policy, which is to say since shortly after the Democratic presidential nominee arrived in Washington, D.C., nearly a half-century ago and I arrived in Hong Kong with the Seventh Fleet.  American workers have paid a heavy price for the combination of naïvité and greed that has driven Biden's views about China over the decades.  The naïvité came first, of course.  The greed came later.

Ex-WH stenographer characterizes Joe Biden as 'shell of his former self'.  Joe Biden's former White House stenographer told "The Ingraham Angle" the Democratic presidential nominee is a "different guy" than the man he worked with four years ago.  "That's not Joe Biden.  That's a shell of his former self," Mike McCormick, who worked as a White House stenographer for 15 years and with the former vice president from 2011 to 2017, told host Laura Ingraham.  "Joe Biden is a different guy than he was.  He doesn't have the same vitality.  I listened to every word Joe Biden spoke," he explained.  The author of "Joe Biden Unauthorized" said he's not a political appointee but a neutral observer, working under Presidents George W. Bush, Barack Obama, and one year under Donald Trump.

Joe Biden: 'We Need to Restore Honor and Decency to the White House'.  In another tweet that he sent out on Saturday, Biden criticized President Donald Trump for golfing.  "Mr. President," Biden said in the tweet, "enough with the weekend golf trips and erratic tweets.  It's time for you to get to work to control the spread of the virus."

The Editor says...
[#1] President Trump was working on addressing the virus as far back as January, while the Democrats were working on impeachment. [1] [2] [3] [4] As for the idea of restoring honor and decency to the White House, where was Mr. Biden when Barack H. Obama was lying to the American public about almost everything, engaging in one scandal after another, and spending excessive time golfing and vacationing?

Joe Biden and Kamala Harris need to quit playing politics with COVID-19 vaccine.  Are Joe Biden and Kamala Harris trying to prolong the pandemic?  That might be the result of their reckless efforts to erode confidence in a vaccine — even as they blame President Trump for doing that.  "I would want to see what the scientists said" about any vaccine, Biden huffed Monday.  "I want full transparency." That is:  Don't trust a vaccine OK'd by Team Trump.  Harris was even more blunt:  She'd "trust the word of public-health experts" but not the president — and insisted those experts won't have the final say:  They "will be muzzled, they will be suppressed, they will be sidelined."  What an appalling insult to the integrity of Dr. Tony Fauci and others.

Back to the Basement:  Joe Biden Abandons Campaign Trail Again.  Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden (D) has abandoned the campaign trail once again, with the election just 55 days away. [...] The lack of an active day on the campaign trail comes as the Election Day clock ticks down and Biden continues to spend the bulk of his time off the public campaign trail.  Biden made a rare public appearance on Labor Day, spending a day in Pennsylvania and meeting with union workers in Lancaster.

Joe Biden: "Move it up here".  Biden is enough with it to look for the answer to a scripted question on a teleprompter in a virtual event with the instruction "Move it up here."  Biden can call for the answer and read the answer fed to him, but does so in the clip below in a weirdly dissociated fashion.  [Video clip]

Jaw-Dropping Fraud:  Beijing Biden Plans to Introduce "America First" Economic Plan in Michigan.  Despite the media providing manipulative cover (narrative engineering) for the sheer hypocrisy of this effort, Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden is going to attempt to kick-off an "America First" economic plan in Michigan tomorrow.  First, accept the reality:  Biden is choosing Michigan.  If the media-claimed national Biden polling lead was legit, he would not be headed to Michigan to attempt this insufferable political scheme.

White House Stenographer Says Former VP's 'Mental Acuity' Has Deteriorated.  Joe Biden's former White House stenographer said the vice president's public speaking ability has deteriorated significantly since leaving office to the point where he's "not the same Joe Biden."  "It is a complete difference from what he was in 2017," Mike McCormick, who worked as a White House stenographer for 15 years and with Biden from 2011 to 2017, told the Washington Free Beacon in an interview.  "He's lost a step and he doesn't seem to have the same mental acuity as he did four years ago."  "He doesn't have the energy, he doesn't have the pace of his speaking," McCormick said.  "He's a different guy."

Joe Biden Promises 'Fresh Start' After 48 Years; Borrows Pete Buttigieg Slogan.  A new ad by former Vice President Joe Biden promises a "fresh start" — after nearly 48 years in politics — and appears to borrow the slogan of former rival Pete Buttigieg, who recently joined Biden's transition team.  The ad, released Tuesday, depicts Biden, 77, as offering a "fresh start" after four years of President Donald Trump.

Will Joe Biden ever face tough questions during this campaign?  [Joe] Biden's news conference last week was a rare opportunity for diligent reporters to probe the plans, thoughts and ideas of the man who would be the oldest ever to assume the nation's highest office.  Biden's 32 minutes of "opening remarks" left only 23 for questions.  For whatever reasons — and some of us have our suspicions — none of the questions could conceivably be considered challenging hardballs. [...] A majority of media questions of Biden actually concerned Trump.  Reporters could have inquired about why his campaign appears so casual — a speech in Pittsburgh to a half dozen witnesses and a photo op in Kenosha — while Trump is campaigning somewhere most days.  They could have asked if Biden intends to subject himself to questioning on a serious Sunday talk show as Trump has done, in addition to his favored MSNBC programs.  They could have asked exactly what authority would enable Biden legally to order every American to wear a mask, or is it merely virus virtue-signaling?

Keep Your Dirty Keyboard Paws Off My President.  [Scroll down]  And now comes Biden, whose entire public career is built on one lie after another.  Did he steal another man's wife?  Did he misrepresent to the public the facts of his first wife's horribly tragic accidental road death?  No one yet knows for sure, but it seems so.  What the public does know is that he stole another man's biography and life story, akin to Seinfeld's Kramer having transferred his life stories to Peterman.  He literally plagiarized a life, not just a speech, even claiming that his father, who sold used cars, had been a coal miner.  He lied to the voters about his academic credentials, claiming he graduated at the top of his class when facts revealed he was at the bottom, that he won academic awards when he won none, claiming he risked his life to pin a medal on a military hero in the dangerous mountains of Afghanistan when it all was one of the many illusions and hallucinations that increasingly vie for attention in his cerebrum, a fictitious bellum occupying his cerebellum.

Pre-Election Dirty Tricks:  Ignore, Refute, or Pivot?  It sounds unlikely but the most appalling instance of journalistic malpractice last week was not when The Atlantic published anonymous allegations that President Trump disparaged American troops behind closed doors — it was Joe Biden's so-called press conference following another shaky, rambling, and dishonest speech disguised as a "campaign event."  Rather than jump at the chance to grill the Democratic nominee for president after weeks of his refusing to take questions with no objection from the press, reporters delicately pitched one softball after another to the frail candidate.  Biden opened the event with a direct reference to The Atlantic article.  "If what is written in The Atlantic is true, it's disgusting," Biden fumed.  "It affirms what most of us believe to be true, that Donald Trump is not fit to do the job of president, to be the commander in chief."  The gaggle in attendance eagerly took his cue.  The first "question" [...] went to a scribe from none other than The Atlantic, who prompted Biden to opine about the "president's soul and the life he leads."  Follow-up teasers opened the door for Biden to rant about QAnon, face coverings, Attorney General William Barr, and mail-in voting.

Worn Out Biden Short Circuits Yet Again, Struggles to Get Thru Interview Question During Virtual Event.  At what point does the media get honest about what's going on with Joe Biden?  Biden took questions during an AFL-CIO virtual event.  Rebecca Vedrine asked what a Biden administration would do to help "give them that chance." It's not clear exactly what she was talking about from the video.  [Video clip]  The shot then flips to Biden, who just looked horrible and confused.  "Move it up here," he says, sighing deeply, telling them to move the teleprompter so he'll be able to answer the question.  It then must have moved, because he then responds, clearly reading the answer off the teleprompter.  "There used to be a basic bargain in this country," he read.  "Workers shared in the wealth their work helped create."  The media should be asking if he's getting the questions in advance and why he's getting help to answer the questions.  That means his handlers don't even think he's able to answer such simple questions as being posed here in this event.  If it were Trump, the media would be all over this.  But because it's Biden, they are skipping right over and pretending like it's not happening.

Why is Joe Biden addicted to reading his handlers' scripts?  Even in his basement, Joe Biden bungles.  If it wasn't already obvious by the tracking of his eyes and the cadence of his speech, the Democratic presidential nominee confirms his addiction to scripts by regularly reading parts of his notes that he's not supposed to say.  "End of quote," he said in the middle of a talk attacking President Trump.  "Look, Venezuela topline message is ..." he said during an interview with NBC Miami.  He even reads the headings of talking-point notes from his handlers.  Indeed, Biden seems unable to get through any interview without scripts:  During countless TV spots, viewers can see him looking down at his notes while he answers questions — a mistake routinely avoided by politicians with a hundredth of Biden's decades of experience.  (The Trump campaign has collected a series of such footage.)  And during what are supposed to look like real conversations, as in one with Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf, a supporter, he motions to staff to move the teleprompter text.

Another Trump hoax and Biden's mental decline.  The rumors about Biden's mental competence began concerning the debates.  For the Democrats, the Wuhan virus was a blessing because it allowed them to hide Biden from the public, except for scripted appearances from his home.  Now, though, even the scripted appearances can't cover for his mental decline.  The Democrats are, therefore, trying to level the playing field by launching false attacks against Trump's cognitive abilities.  It's nothing new to American Thinker readers that Joe Biden is not the man he was just a few years ago.  We've shared multiple videos showing him struggling to read his notes, giving confused answers, showing signs of emotional incontinence (that is, being unable to control his temper), losing his grip on core facts, and otherwise giving every indication that he is, sadly, struggling with some form of senile dementia.

Joe Biden Tries to Cancel Thomas Edison.  A Joe Biden terrified that the African-American vote is slipping away from the party of pandering made an absurd claim during a rare day trip from his basement bunker to Kenosha, Wisconsin.  At least his handlers were able to find and lead him to Wisconsin, which Hillary Clinton failed to do in 2016.  Biden had just finished a meeting with the family of Jacob Blake, the young African-American wanted on a felony warrant for sexual abuse shot after struggling with police.  As part of his portrayal of the Trump administration as oppressors of blacks and white people as guardians of systemic racism, even if it is Democrats who run the system where urban unrest is occurring, Biden decided to add another wrinkle — whites are stealing credit for African-American inventions.

The Stephen King Election.  Voters start mailing in absentee ballots.  Potential pluralities are cast before the first debate[.]  The debates are alarmingly weighted against the challenger.  A president, at full capacity, confronting each day, every hour, the horsemen of a Communist virus, insurrection, Never-Trump calumny, and Deep State hatred.  Mr. Biden, at the doorstep of his own private Delaware, rolled forth in his dotage, an empty icon representing one of the most corrupt and lawless administrations since the founding.  Trump's retort to Hillary Clinton, "Because you'd be in jail," seems in retrospect like a relative kindness.  At least the former first lady knew what was happening to her.

Biden Fabricates Trump Social Security Cuts.  This lie was so outrageous that it was awarded four Pinocchios by the Washington Post.  The impetus for the claim was a letter written to Chief Actuary Stephen Goss by several Senators asking him to evaluate "hypothetical legislation" whereby the payroll taxes that provide funding for Social Security would be eliminated.  Goss must respond to such questions, but he included this in his answer:  "I am not aware that anyone has proposed the hypothetical legislation you describe."  It's also unlikely that he knew that the letter was sent at the behest of the Democratic presidential nominee, who has called for Social Security cuts.

A vote for Joe Biden is still a vote for radicalism, not normalcy.  After last month's strange virtual party conventions, the question on everyone's minds is, who came out ahead?  The polling has been mixed, but the candidates' reactions make it obvious.  You can tell just by looking at what Joe Biden has been doing in the time since.  First, he has loudly distanced himself from his earlier, repeated promises to end fracking, which he made both in debates and in conversations with Democratic primary voters.  This evinces a fear that his anti-fracking stance — and note that opposition to "new fracking" necessarily entails opposition to all fracking — will cost him Pennsylvania and other states enjoying the benefits of the energy revolution.

Joe Biden is in a bind due to COVID-19.  Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and his handlers have known that he should have been out and about, weighing in daily on the issues of the campaign.  In impromptu interviews, Biden should be offering alternative plans for dealing with the virus, the lockdown, the economic recovery, the violence and the looting and racial tensions.  Yet until Biden's recent press outing and visit to Kenosha, Wis., his handlers seem to have assumed that if he were to leave his basement and fully enter the fray, he could be capable of losing the election in moments of gaffes, lapses or prolonged silences.  So wisely, Team Biden relied on the fact that the commander-in-chief is always blamed for bad news — and there has been plenty of bad news worldwide this year.

Nobody Is Switching from Trump to Biden.  Do you know anyone who has gone from supporting Donald Trump in 2016 to supporting that basement-dwelling commie puppet weirdo in 2020?  I know zero people.  I don't mean "practically zero" or "a few."  I mean zero. [...] No, it's not scientific.  It's anecdotal, but then when it comes to the mainstream media, I'd always believe an anecdote over what the media is telling me.

Why do You Support Joe Biden?  There are a lot of unanswered questions for Biden supporters.  Part of the frustration with the left and those that support it is that they never offer a convincing rationale for their actions.  Why are you voting for him? [...] How do you reconcile the #MeToo movement's aggressive push against prominent Republicans to suddenly turning a blind eye to the recorded interactions by Biden towards, not only women, but young girls?  It isn't even just Tara Reade who was ignored, despite more substantive evidence and corroboration than was presented against Justice Kavanaugh in the entire process of his confirmation hearings.  You likely don't even know how he earned the name Creepy Joe, considering how the media covers up his every gaffe, [...] Joe Biden is now 77 years old and he began representing the state of Delaware at the age of 28.  That's the first thing.  Secondly, in light of his likely dementia, perhaps you could wade into the seeming contradiction of the hyperbolized fear surrounding Trump's alleged mental unfitness and now the silence around Biden's own mental faculties.

Frack-Checking Joe Biden.  Joe Biden has made it clear that he was for fracking before he was against it.  Forget the cognitive testing — the cognitive dissonance of the incoherent policies his puppet masters are feeding him though his earpiece is enough to disqualify him for the presidency and may doom him politically in key states like Pennsylvania just as Hillary Clinton's pledge to bankrupt a lot of coal companies doomed her.  Banning fossil fuels and killing the energy independence Trump achieved before the Wuhan virus pandemic would kill the American economy and future hopes for recovery.  It is said a little child shall lead us, and a little child named AOC wants to lead us and a President Biden over the economic cliff.  She, and Biden running mate Kamala Harris, may only succeed in pushing Biden over the political cliff as voters realize that solar panels and wind turbines are not all that good at creating jobs in the gray skies of winter.

Biden Now Says National Mask Mandate 'Probably Unconstitutional' — Gives Bizarre Non-Answer to Reporter Asking When He will Visit Arizona.  Basement-dwelling Biden did a total 180 during an interview with Arizona's Family Political Editor Dennis Welch on Sunday [9/6/2020] and said that a national mask mandate is probably unconstitutional.  A few weeks ago Biden called for a national mask mandate.  Joe Biden and Kamala Harris delivered remarks after their Covid-19 roundtable in mid-August and called for a "nationwide mask mandate starting immediately."  "Let's institute a mask mandate nationwide, starting immediately and we will save lives." said Biden.  "The estimate is that we will save over 40,000 lives in the next 3 months if that is done."

50+ Questions No Reporter Dares Ask Joe Biden And His Campaign.  Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden doesn't face the same scrutiny the media applies to President Trump.  Whether it is due to gaffes, his inability to complete some sentences, or lack of knowledge on a subject, Biden has proven that interviews are not for him and the media has covered accordingly.  When Biden actually agrees to an interview or offers to take questions, most reporters simply ask leading, softball questions or merely state something for Biden to nod in agreement with.  Many times, Biden refuses to take questions altogether.  If Biden ever decides to take questions from the press again, here's a list of questions reporters wouldn't dare ask him and his campaign for fear of risking their esteemed reputations as some of the loudest voices for Democrats.

It's a Straight Line from Biden to BLM.  An unmistakable correlation between the radical Left's extortionate violence and the sudden tightening of polls has stirred the Democrats' senescent standard-bearer to bolt the basement.  He'd hoped to wait another week or so before emerging to read short speeches about President Trump's erratic handling of COVID-19 (the government's missteps during the Obama-era swine flu pandemic having apparently slipped Biden's mind).  But he's got a tiger by the tail in the radical Left, which is turning electoral battlegrounds into smoldering battlefields.  So now he's hustling into the hustings with a narrative about what's motivating his fellow travelers — who have just added murder to the mayhem they've wrought on America's streets for the past three months.  Here's the punchline:  Trump made them do it!  That was the upshot of the former vice president's speech in Pittsburgh on Monday [8/31/2020].  "Are you safe in Trump's America?"  His argument lays at the incumbent president's feet the upheaval instigated by Democratic supporters in Democrat-run cities.

What are the Stakes?  This is an election like no other.  To treat it otherwise would be a grievous and perhaps irreparable misstep. [...] Currently, the ruling classes mostly disenfranchise undesirables through social opprobrium, labeling them "deplorable" and letting their attack dogs in the media do the rest.  But in the Obama era, they began to belligerently "weaponize" the federal government, using the IRS and intelligence agencies to thwart their political opponents.  If granted control of the White House again, the lesson they will draw from defeating Trump is not only that they will not be held accountable for such tactics, but that such tactics work.  They will use government agencies to kneecap their enemies in every conceivable fashion.  Those are the stakes.

Biden's Position on Issues Changes With Time and Place.  Judging by former Vice President Joe Biden's recent speech in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and a new campaign ad with his vice presidential pick, Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., it's clear the Democratic Party nominee for president thinks the American people are stupid.  In both instances, Biden makes statements and claims which are clearly not true.  In the recently released campaign ad, "A Socially Distanced Conversation," Biden said he feels Americans are "...angry right now, I think they are fed up.  I think they are looking for some authenticity and some honesty."  Real irony is on full display when Joe Biden describes himself as authentic and honest; in fact, it's wildly inauthentic and dishonest.

Back when Joe Biden was still coherent, he once joked about China helping him become president.  Current Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden once made a joke about Chinese President Xi Jinping helping him in his own future bid to become president of the U.S.  The joke was made at the U.S.-China Strategic and Economic Dialogue in early July of 2013, roughly four months after then-Vice President Xi succeeded then-President Hu Jintao, thus becoming modern China's 5th president.  [Video clip]

WaPo gives Biden four Pinocchios(!?) on Social Security claim.  Team Biden is spending some of their record-setting August haul of campaign cash on developing and deploying a news series of campaign advertisements for both television and the web.  But not all of these efforts are producing high-quality results.  One recent example is their advertisement about Social Security and how the Bad Orange Man plans to wipe out the security net in less than three years.  If that sounds outlandish to you, that's because it is.  But they're running the ad anyway.  [Video clip]

Brutally Honest Campaign Ad — "Meet Joe Biden Supporters".  An effective ad showcasing the major issue within the 2020 election cycle.  [Video clip]

New Documentary Exposes Details About Hunter Biden's Foreign Business Deals.  A new investigative documentary sheds even more light on the extremely questionable foreign business dealings of Hunter Biden, son of former Vice President Joe Biden, and how such deals put American national security at risk, according to the New York Post.  The 41-minute documentary, "Riding the Dragon:  The Bidens' Chinese Secrets," is produced and hosted by author and investigative journalist Peter Schweizer, who has received critical acclaim for his previous works investigating the political elite.  His last film was 2015's "Clinton Cash," which similarly documented the numerous ways in which Bill and Hillary Clinton profited off of their time in public life.  In "Riding the Dragon," Schweizer reveals several Chinese business deals that Hunter Biden was involved in while serving as a member of the board of BHR Partners, a Chinese investment firm.

Joe Biden's Kenosha town hall [was] marred by eyebrow-raising statements.  Joe Biden's town hall event in Kenosha, Wisconsin, Thursday was marred by a number of controversial and eyebrow-raising incidents, including the Democratic candidate claiming that the light bulb was not invented by Thomas Edison, and a questioner refusing to adhere to a pre-written script she was "told to go off."  Biden said during the event that a black man invented the light bulb — and "not a white guy named Edison."  Biden, 77, made the claim while speaking Thursday at Grace Lutheran Church, where he met residents following a 90-minute private session with Jacob Blake's family, a meeting that Blake joined by phone, according to attorney Ben Crump.

Round One Goes to Trump.  Biden acts like a figurehead who says what his handlers tell him.  Taking press questions (a rare event) he commented on the killing of a Trump supporter who was apparently shot in cold blood in an unprovoked attack during the ongoing riots in Portland, accusing the Trump supporters of "inciting responses."  Why is this logic not used when talking of violent rioters who get shot by armed defenders trying to protect businesses?  Maybe, just maybe, because doing so would get in the way of the preferred Dem narrative that these rioters are innocent victims of oppression protesting against injustice.  Biden is beginning to look like an elderly, confused owner of an aggressive pit bull who tells you the dog is only reacting to being misunderstood even as the snarling animal is straining on its leash baring its teeth.

Reporters Don't Give Biden Questions in Advance?  You Be the Judge.  [Joe] Biden spoke in Wilmington, Delaware on Friday [9/4/2020] to rebut the very good news contained in the August jobs report.  He also used the opportunity to express his outrage and disappointment over 2018 remarks attributed to President Trump by highly dubious reporting in The Atlantic.  When Trump answers reporters' questions, he calls on individual reporters himself.  But not so for Biden or his campaign.  Here you can see the candidate turning to his handler to start calling from a predetermined list of reporters, saying, "I guess ... are you calling on people?  I don't have a list."  Joe!  You're not supposed to admit to following a list!  This led to Biden's first question, in which an Atlantic reporter read a pathetically soft question from his cell phone:  "When you hear these remarks" attributed to Trump by The Atlantic's editor, Jeffrey Goldberg, "what does it tell you about President Trump's soul?"  Biden then cast his eyes to the lectern, briefly studying.  After using the word, "deplorable" twice in his answer, Biden looked down at the lectern a second time.  At 22:37, one can clearly see him turn up the corner of a page of notes as he studies them before continuing his answer.

President Trump Shreds Reporters For Asking Biden Softball Questions During Delaware Event, "Those Questions Were Meant For a Child".  President Trump on Friday lambasted liberal reporters for treating Joe Biden with kid gloves on Friday [9/4/2020].  77-year-old Joe Biden emerged from his basement Friday and shuffled over to a campaign event in Wilmington, Delaware.  The so-called 'reporters' or as we here at TGP like to call them 'stenographers' asked Joe Biden a series of softball questions.  The first question to Joe Biden came from Atlantic writer Isaac Dovere who asked Biden to respond to the junk hit piece on Trump (from 2018) written by The Atlantic.

Joe Biden Reads the Instruction Line off the Teleprompter AGAIN.  Democrats have tried to spin the problems of Joe Biden's cognitive decline as his "stutter," pouncing Republicans or anyone of a dozen other excuses.  But we've seen the problem again and again in videos so it's hard for them to deny.  Friday's entry is pretty difficult to argue away.  Biden literally reads his remarks and he reads the instruction on the teleprompter that says "end of quote" without even realizing what he's saying. [...] If it were Trump, we'd never hear the end of it.  His staff must be losing their minds because this is going to happen every time they throw him out there.  More and more people are seeing that he's just not fit.

After That Horrible Joke By Biden in Kenosha, I Can See Why Some Dems Don't Want Him to Debate Trump.  Former Vice President Joe Biden raced to Wisconsin, where President Trump recently visited Kenosha which was engulfed by leftist rioters.  He's supposedly ahead of Trump in the Badger State.  I doubt it.  The Biden operation is acting like a scrambling mess trying to catch up to Trump and push back on the narrative laid out by the recent Republican National Convention, which unlike the Democratic event, mentioned the lawlessness that has infested Democrat-run cities.  And yes, some Democrats and their allies in the media have quasi-endorsed the violence... until the polling showed voters are — shocker — not supportive of anarchy and Marxist revolution.  That's what this is now.  It's no longer about George Floyd, police reform, racial justice, etc., the white liberals have taken over Black Lives Matter.  It's now about the Marxist cause.

Reporters blasted for 'shamefully embarrassing' softball questions at rare Biden press conference.  Reporters who were able to ask questions at Joe Biden's press conference Friday [9/4/2020] were torn apart by critics for failing to properly grill the Democratic presidential candidate. [...] The less-than-rigorous lines of questioning left critics enraged.  "The media are simply the PR wing for the Biden campaign at this point," Ben Shapiro reacted.  Conservative commentator Stephen Miller singled out Lee for criticism, tweeting "Watch this question and how it's framed.  She essentially gives Biden the answer in her question.  She's making a statement and asking Biden to basically just reply to her."  RealClearInvestigations senior writer Mark Hemingway wrote, "A text from a friend watching the press conference: 'Who are asking Biden these questions??  It's like watching someone make sure a 3 year old wins CandyLand.'"

Is Biden's Bubble Strategy About to Burst?  Is Democrats' Biden bubble strategy about to burst?  By keeping Biden away from the public, Democrats have compressed the race into a two-month sprint with no margin for error.  Like Aesop's fable about the tortoise and the hare, Democrats may find Biden has waited too late to run.

Biden Kenosha Meeting Derails As Woman Admits She Was Given Scripted Question.  The Biden campaign has apparently been caught red-handed giving out scripted questions at a community meeting in Kenosha.  Former Vice President Biden traveled to Kenosha, Wisconsin this week to see how the city was dealing with the riots and severe civil unrest that followed the shooting of Jacob Blake last month.  His campaign team had set up a meeting for community members to ask him questions, but it was derailed after one attendee admitted to being handed a script.  "I'm going to be honest Mr Biden, I was told to go off this paper but I can't," the woman said.  "We need the truth, and I am part of the truth.  I was born here, raised here... I have to give you the truth of the people, and the truth of the matter is, we are heavily angry, not angry as to where people say 'oh they're protesting', there's a difference between a protestor and a rioter."

Joe Biden Accused of Groping Breast of Secret Service Agent's Girlfriend During 2009 Photo-Op.  Judicial Watch announced on Thursday [9/32020] that it filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the Department of Homeland Security for records that were allegedly destroyed by the Secret Service regarding a 2009 incident between then-Vice President Joe Biden and a Secret Service agent.  Their original FOIA request was made back on May 12, 2020, and sought "all records related to a reported incident in 2009 in which a United States Secret Service Agent reportedly was involved in an altercation with, or attempted to strike, then Vice President Joe Biden" during a photo opportunity.  According to Judicial Watch, the lawsuit was filed after the Secret Service "failed to respond to a July 14, 2020 administrative appeal challenging its claim that all files related to the 2009 altercation 'ha[d] been destroyed' due to 'retention standards.'"

Biden Speaks Gibberish as He Tries to Call Out Trump.  Joe Biden crawled out of his basement on Wednesday [9/2/2020] after shutting down pool movement and napping most of Tuesday.  Biden began speaking gibberish at an event in Wilmington, Delaware on Wednesday.  The 77-year-old tried to blast President Trump and ended up jumbling his words.  "Stop your boast about — never being — seemed at you — you can do anything."

Nate Silver's Latest Shows Biden Is Headed for a Very Bad November.  Nate Silver, the popular statistician and data geek who publishes his predictions for political outcomes throughout the country has released some new findings for the November Presidential Election and the news for Team Biden isn't great.  In fact, they are downright bad.

Suspicious IV drip-like bruise spotted on Biden's hand in Kenosha heightens demands for drug tests before debates.  There is new evidence supporting President Trump's public call for drug testing before the all-important presidential debates.  As Joe Biden's mental acuity seems to be declining rapidly, his ability seemingly to rise to the occasion when in a high-visibility public appearance does appear suspicious.  Now comes something else suspicious: a bruise and swelling on Biden's left hand right where an intravenous drip needle is customarily inserted when administering drugs (such as amphetamines). [...] Of course, there could be other explanations for the anomaly.  But it most definitely adds momentum to the demand for the drug tests.  Why would Biden legitimately refuse?  Job applicants for far less consequential positions must submit to drug tests.

ABC: Joe Biden Isn't Senile, You Guys, That's Just What The Russians Want You To Think.  Has anyone noticed a slowdown with Joe?  He isn't drooling, he isn't muttering to himself any more than plenty of other people do, but something seems different.  Or maybe rather than different, something seems deeply familiar.  No, it isn't the sort of cognitive decline we've all seen with loved ones.  Rather, according to ABC's latest nuke, the encroaching senility that has our former vice president hiding in his basement is simply... Russian propaganda.  Don't laugh!  This is serious stuff.  National security!  It took four reporters, with help from a fifth to write this story.  It runs nearly 1,600 words.

Judicial Watch Sues to Get 'Destroyed' Secret Service Records about Alleged Biden Groping Incident.  Judicial Watch is suing to get information regarding an alleged impropriety regarding Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden and a secret service agent.  The foundation filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit with the Department of Homeland Security for records that have supposedly been destroyed about the incident.  Judicial Watch wants access to the records if they exist or to understand why they have been destroyed if that is in fact the case.

Biden is Setting Up the Conditions for Dropping Out of Debates.  On Wednesday, Former Vice President Joe Biden proposed a "live fact-check" crawler for his scheduled Presidential Debates against President Donald Trump.  Biden suggested that the crawler could immediately verify the veracity of both candidates' statements during the debate and level the playing field for the Democrat nominee.  When asked a question about how he has begun to prepare for the upcoming debates, Hidin' Biden had the following to say: [...]

Joe Biden's Moral Depravity Was Laid Bare Today.  Joe Biden released a new campaign ad today [9/3/2020] targeting black Americans, and it is one of the more morally depraved things I've seen seen from a political party in the last several years.  The release was timed with his visit to Kenosha, WI today.  While he went to pretend to be a racial healer, in reality he simply dumped fuel on the fire.  In the new ad, we see irrational fears stoked and false premises granted as part of a cynical, partisan ploy.  [Video clip]

Biden Finally Makes It to Kenosha, It Goes All Kinds of Wrong.  Joe Biden is in Kenosha on Thursday, two days after President Donald Trump.  Once again, Biden seems to be behind Trump in doing the right thing and Trump had a reason, as president for going.  Biden's only reason for going seems to be to have a photo op.  Immediately, people noticed a difference in the two visits. [...] Trump's remarks were about the situation there and helping people, Biden's remarks were his campaign pitches.  Why is he talking about taxes, as he does here?  And he makes a horrible joke that if he tells them more about his tax plan "they'll shoot me."  Given the circumstances of Kenosha, really not something to joke about there.  [Video clip]

Secret Service Inadvertently Confirms Gateway Pundit Story About Biden Sexually Assaulting Agent's Girlfriend.  In 2017, the Gateway Pundit exclusively reported that a Secret Service agent was suspended for a week in 2009 for shoving then-Vice President Joe Biden after he cupped his girlfriend's breast while the couple was taking a photo with him.  The situation got so heated, a source who was a Secret Service agent at the time told TGP, that others had to step in to prevent the agent from hitting the then-Vice President.  Speaking on the condition of anonymity, the agent asserted that, "we had to cancel the VP Christmas get together at the Vice President's house because Biden would grope all of our wives and girlfriend's [...]." The annual party was for agents and Navy personnel who were tasked with protecting the Biden family.

Joe Biden:  The audacity of dope.  In the throes of a heated national election, cities burn and innocent citizens are beat up and murdered in the street.  Who is to blame?  Joe Biden offers two answers to this question.  First, he says, it is all President Trump's fault.  Then he attacks Mr. Trump for politicizing the violence by blaming Mr. Biden's Democratic cohorts who lead those cities.  Only somebody who has spent 48 years in the bowels of the federal government could arrive at that kind of demented logic.  And only somebody who has spent a life in partisan politics could be so shameless.

Prof. Biden Claims 'a Black Man Invented the Light Bulb, Not a White Guy Named Edison.'.  Joe Biden, who claims he wants to fact-check Donald Trump in real time during the presidential debates, told a real whopper on Thursday during his visit to Kenosha.  "People fear that's, which, that which is different.  We gotta, for example, why [...] don't we teach history in history classes?  A black man invented the light bulb, not a white guy named Edison." Fact check:  False.  Make no mistake about it, Thomas Edison invented the light bulb.

Small Crowds, Little Enthusiasm for Joe Biden During 'Desperation Trip' to Kenosha.  There was no crowd of supporters to greet Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden at the airport when he arrived in the battleground state of Wisconsin, Thursday [9/3/2020], and as of 1:00 p.m., no crowd (other than his MSM supporters) had formed on the streets or in front of the Kenosha church where he was expected at 2:00 p.m. to hold a community event.

Biden with a mask hanging from his ear
Donald Trump Mocks Joe Biden for Hanging Mask Off of His Ear.  President Donald Trump on Thursday ridiculed former Vice President Joe Biden for publicly signaling his commitment to wearing a mask to fight the coronavirus.  "I've never seen a man that liked a mask so much," Trump said at a rally at an airport in Pennsylvania on Thursday [9/3/2020].  Trump said he was "all for" Americans wearing masks to help stop the spread of the virus, urging Americans to keep washing their hands and remain socially distanced over the Labor Day weekend.  But he mocked Biden for his mask-signaling behavior.  "Did you ever see a man who likes a mask as much as him?" Trump asked, noting that sometimes Biden even hung his mask over his ear when he was speaking.

Biden Meets With Antisemitic, Farrakhan-Loving Father Of Jacob Blake.  Jacob Blake Sr. — the father of a Jacob Blake, a black man who was shot four times by police in Kenosha, WI while violating a restraining order for felony sexual assault — is a giant antisemite, anti-Christian, and loves Islamic hate-preacher Louis Farrakhan.  And if you're Joe Biden looking to pander to 'woke' Democrats, you meet with said antisemite on Thursday in a bid to score political points over the now-paralyzed Blake Jr., whose shooting sparked violent riots in Kenosha and added gasoline to anti-police protests sweeping the country.  Blake Sr., a frequent CNN guest and presence at Black Lives Matter protests since the shooting, has a history of making bigoted comments over social media — which Biden apparently doesn't mind.

Joe Biden Lies in Church, Brings 'Very Fine People' Hoax to Kenosha.  Former Vice President Joe Biden told a small audience at the Grace Lutheran Church in Kenosha, Wisconsin, that President Donald Trump had called neo-Nazis "very fine people" — repeating a false claim he has made since his campaign began.  Biden — whose campaign billed his visit as an opportunity for racial healing — repeated the same script he has used over and over again, talking about white supremacists coming "out of the fields," and "carrying torches," with their "veins bulging."  He added that a "young woman was killed" protesting against them.  (Her name was Heather Heyer, a detail he often omits.)  Biden — standing before the cross — went on to say that the president, when asked about the white supremacists, said there were "very fine people on both sides."  But Biden misled his audience:  Trump actually condemned the white supremacists.

Biden Speaks Gibberish as He Tries to Call Out Trump.  Joe Biden crawled out of his basement on Wednesday [9/2/2020] after shutting down pool movement and napping most of Tuesday.  Biden began speaking gibberish at an event in Wilmington, Delaware on Wednesday [9/2/2020].  The 77-year-old tried to blast President Trump and ended up jumbling his words.

Joe Biden's Denial of DNC Mask Mandate Is Pure Panic.  Joe Biden is becoming so defensive, he's being forced to blatantly lie about his own call for a nationwide mask mandate.  "We'll have a national mandate to wear a mask," Slow Joe said during his acceptance speech at the Democrat National Convention. [...] He called for all of this in front of the whole world.  It's on tape.  There's video.  And now, he's lying about it.  Says he never said it.

Joe Biden and the Dark Shadow of Woodrow Wilson.  Twitter and the media (but I repeat myself) threw a fit the other day when President Trump said this to Laura Ingraham. [...] And on cue, the Twitterites freaked out.  Let me ask a question here.  How many of those Twitterers know who Joe Tumulty is?  How about Cary Grayson?  Or Edith Bolling Galt Wilson? [...] Wilson biographer August Heckscher writes:  "Thus began, with the silent assent of some, with the active maneuvering of others, such a cover-up as American history had not known before."  Which is to say, three people and three people alone — the President's wife, his doctor and private secretary — all in the "dark shadows" of the Wilson Administration — controlled access to the President.  And on [Doctor] Grayson's advice — Mrs. Wilson made the major presidential decisions that were coming in to her husband. [...] Thus, three people in the "dark shadows" were really running a president.

Liberals Say President Trump is "Mean," But Joe Biden Supports Killing Babies.  They say President Donald Trump is mean, that he is immoral and divisive and unpresidential.  They question how any Christian, any conservative, any good, moral American can vote for such a man.  But supporters of Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden often fail to hold their own candidate to the same standards.  If they did, they might realize that "established elites such as Biden are more like Trump than they care to admit," Nathanael Blake commented at The Federalist this week.  Blake said he is not a huge Trump fan.  He said the president's immoral past, some of his political actions and his mean comments on Twitter are troubling.  But Biden supports the killing of unborn babies in abortions and forcing taxpayers to fund them — one of the most immoral and evil position that a politician can take.  It is one of the key reasons why Blake and so many others plan to support the Republican president for a second term.

Participant at Biden Event in Kenosha Admits She Was Given a "Paper" Telling Her What to Say.  We know that the Biden events are all staged and we now have more evidence.  Today in Kenosha, Wisconsin at a Biden event a woman admitted on camera that she was given a piece of paper telling her what to say: [...] The Biden team has managed their events by ensuring all comments and questions the former Obama VP is asked are pre-approved, and set up so that Biden can read the respective answers on the teleprompter.  Yesterday we saw this as well and every day for that matter.  The media and the Biden team work together as they manufacture events and try to make them look unscripted.

Biden to meet with Blake Sr who appears anti-Semitic, racist, anti-Christian.  Joe Biden is set to meet with Jacob Blake's father today.  Blake Sr. is a Farrakhan devotée.  He is also an anti-Semitic, anti-Christian, white hater.  Breitbart linked to tweets and copied memes posted by Blake Sr. over the course of years.  What does it say about Biden that he is meeting with him?  Blake is the father of the man shot and wounded in Kenosha by a police officer.  Blake Sr.'s social media posts, particularly on Facebook, reveal radical political views and extreme racist rhetoric.  On Instagram, where Blake Sr. appears to have had a much more limited presence, he posted a video about the Sep. 11, 2001 terror attacks:  "Man, I give a fuck about 9/11."  He went on to cite the killing of 12-year-old Tamir Rice by police in Cleveland in 2014.

Joe Biden Meets with Blake Family — Including Antisemitic, Racist Father.  Former Vice President Joe Biden and his wife Jill met with the family of Jacob Blake Jr. in Milwaukee on Thursday — including Jacob Blake Sr., whose long history of racist, antisemitic, and anti-Christian social media posts was exposed on Wednesday [9/2/2020].  As Breitbart News reported:  "Blake Sr.'s social media posts, particularly on Facebook, reveal radical political views and extreme racist rhetoric."  Many posts attack Jews with classic antisemitic stereotypes, alleging that they control the media and the economy.

Joe Biden Finally Takes Questions from Media, It Doesn't End Well.  Joe Biden has been hiding in his basement for months.  He managed to struggle through a speech at the Democratic convention with the help of a teleprompter.  But since then, he wasn't even able to get it together for a simple 12 minute speech in Pittsburgh, again with no audience and reading off a teleprompter, not even taking any questions.  Today [9/2/2020] they made a big mistake and let him answer questions and it was a complete mess.  [Video clip]

Pushing back against Biden's claim that Trump caused the violence.  On Monday [8/31/2020], the Democrat party released Joe Biden from the basement, hustled him up to Pittsburgh, had him read a Teleprompter, waved farewell to journalists who weren't allowed to speak, and tucked him up again in his basement bed.  The speech that Biden read was, quite possibly, the most dishonest speech ever given during an American political campaign.  A conservative Christian website put together a video pushing back against Biden's lies, and that video has rightly gone viral. [...] For a long time, the Democrat establishment supported what was going on.  Democrats did this explicitly, with actual words of support, or implicitly by downplaying or denying the violence.  At the Democrat National Convention, no one at the convention said a single word about the daily riots.  Sometime last week, though, the polling changed, and word got out to Democrats that Americans don't like seeing their cities go up in flames and their black neighborhoods (and businesses) destroyed.

No 'sister' moment for Joe.  On Monday, Joe Biden looked at the camera and said something like this:  "Do I look like a guy who supports lawlessness"?  Frankly, he doesn't.  What he looks like is: a man who has said nothing since the riots started and then suddenly decided to talk about because the polls are changing.

Biden's Laughable Pivot.  Democratic Presidential Candidate Joe Biden has sat silent while roving bands of outlaws tore American cities to shreds.  He said nothing when an Antifa leader in Portland called for "the abolition of the United States as we know it."  His own vice-presidential pick, Kamala Harris, grinned as she warned that the riots are "not gonna stop.  And they should not."  Until about five minutes ago, Harris and Biden thought they could use the Marxist revolutionaries of BLM and Antifa as their own pet militia.  They thought that once the brownshirts had made a hellscape of America, they could come sailing in to convince voters that Grandpa Joe and Mamala were going to make it all better.

The Revolution Will Accelerate Under Biden.  Prompted by his pollsters, Joe Biden this week delivered a speech in Pittsburgh condemning the violence across America's cities.  The speech was laced with lies, starting with the claim that he is a racial healer.  Anyone inclined to believe that should look back at the Obama-Biden administration, which was defined by race-baiting and the deterioration of race relations.  Biden in effect promised that the revolution underway in America would stop if he is elected president.  Never mind that he plans on bringing the revolutionaries into his administration.  Should he win, he will give key positions to radicals who want to spur, not stop, the revolution.

Biden might want to skip his meeting with Jacob Blake's family.  The Democrats have a nasty habit of choosing as martyrs some highly unpleasant people.  Trayvon Martin was a wannabe gangbanger, Michael Brown was a strong-arm robber who attacked a police officer, George Floyd was an ex-felon with a violent past who died from an overdose of illegal drugs, and there was a warrant out for Jacob Blake because he violated a restraining order imposed following a particular ugly alleged sexual assault.  Now it emerges that Jacob Blake, Sr., the man who raised such a violent son, has some ugly ideas about Jews.  This is going to be a problem for Joe Biden who has finally decided to visit Kenosha, the place where Jacob Blake got shot and where Antifa and Black Lives Matter tried to burn an American town to the ground.  While still in his hidey-hole in Wilmington, Biden has already taken sides, and he's not on the side of law and order.  He's stated that the police officers who shot Blake in what was clearly a reasonable act of self-preservation should be charged.  Biden also plans to meet Blake's family.

Joe Biden Denies Calling for National Mask Mandate: 'I'm a Constitutionalist'.  Joe Biden backed off his proposed national mask mandate on Wednesday [9/2/2020] and now says he would "put pressure" on states, local units of government, and businesses to require them.  "No, no," he said, denying he ever proposed such a thing, before claiming he would "ask every person in authority" to impose one.  "I'm a constitutionalist," Biden declared.  "You can't do things the Constitution does [sic] allow you the power to do."

The Editor says...
It would have been very helpful if Vice President Biden had told President Barack H. Obama, "You can't do things the Constitution does [not] allow you the power to do," when Obama was doing all this.

Biden: On Second Thought, Let's Go To Kenosha.  Translation:  The polling on riots must be getting brutal.  Just days after criticizing Donald Trump for making a campaign stop in Kenosha after a controversial police shooting, Joe Biden's campaign suddenly added a visit by their nominee.  He's going o "heal" the community, the campaign claims, but it certainly looks like Biden is playing follow the leader.

Democrats are increasingly worried Trump's 'law and order message is resonating with swing state voters.  Democrats have told top advisers to the party's presidential nominee, Joe Biden, that President Donald Trump's "law and order" message and images of disorder during anti-racism protests risk undermining Biden in Midwestern swing states, The Washington Post reported on Wednesday [9/2/2020].  According to the report, Biden's campaign was caught off guard by unrest last week in Kenosha, Wisconsin, after the police shooting of Jacob Blake and violence between Trump supporters and counterprotesters in Portland, Oregon.

The Editor says...
I find it difficult to believe the Biden team was "caught off guard" by an event that happened ten days earlier.  The Biden campaign would never have mentioned rioting, but the rioters are obviously not Republicans, and the voters are paying attention.

The Train Wreck of Joe Biden's Mind (Part 2).  [Scroll down]    [Video clip] Here's Insanity Wrap's transcription.  Any errors are our own.  Anything resembling grammar, sense, or factuality is purely accidental.  ["]COVID has taken this year, just since the outbreak, has taken more than 100 year.  Look.  Here's.  The lives, it's just, it's [unintelligible].  I mean, think about it.  More lives this year than any other year for the past hundred years.["]  Insanity Wrap will forgive Biden the "[unintelligible]" part.  The man has a stutter, and the occasional "[unintelligible]" is just a part of fighting that particular condition.  No longer enjoying the mental acuity to make a simple statement — from the man who would be the next president of the United State — that, as Vito Corleone said, we do not forgive.

More than a gaffe:  Joe Biden's latest flub draws widespread concern and criticism.  Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden sparked more concerns over his mental health after strange moments in his campaign speech from Pittsburgh. [...] "This is why the Biden campaign doesn't want him to leave his basement — this guy isn't playing with a full deck and it is so irresponsible that the media covers this up..." the president's son, Eric Trump, tweeted.  Biden had ventured out of his home in Wilmington, Del., where he has been hiding out through the coronavirus pandemic.  His trip to Pennsylvania Monday had limited supporters as his campaign team did not want to take any risks with the virus.  At one point during his remarks, Biden seemed to struggle to string words together into a complete sentence.  "COVID has taken this year — just since the outbreak — has taken 100 year.  Look, here's... the lives... it's just... I mean, think about it.  More lives this year than any other year for the past 100 years," the 77-year-old said.

Riots and Joe Biden's Joe Isuzu Problem.  Anybody remember the 1980s Isuzu auto TV pitchman "Joe Isuzu"? Wikipedia recalls him as "a pathological liar who made outrageous and overinflated claims about Isuzu's cars," which describes a lot of Joe Biden's boasts about himself. [...] Does it seem like Democrats are deaf-mutes when it comes to speaking clearly against the rioting going on right now?  It went unmentioned during the Democratic National Convention two weeks ago.  But in fact Joe Biden has made statements against the riots, such as this one back in July:  "Anyone who burns or pillages... should be arrested.  They are a problem for society and they make a mockery of what the march is all about.  They should be tried, arrested and put in jail."  Today Biden is spinning furiously to catch up with the curve, saying "Rioting is not protesting.  Looting is not protesting.  Setting fires is not protesting."

Massive Super PAC poised to 'swift-boat' Biden in key states.  Remember the 2004 presidential campaign between George W. Bush and John Kerry?  That campaign produced the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth in support of President Bush.  The PAC exposed John Kerry's record as a Vietnam veteran.  It was very effective, too.  There is a new version of this kind of Super PAC coming on the scene now and President Trump will be the beneficiary.  Just in time to begin making up for some lost time, Preserve America will be overseen by Chris LaCivita, a veteran Republican strategist and the mastermind behind the Swift Boat veterans ad campaign.  Politico is reporting the PAC's first campaign ads will begin Tuesday in key states.

Biden's timeline in violence.  In light of Joe Biden condemning recent violence in Kenosha, Wisconsin, and Portland, Oregon, some leaders and commentators falsely claimed that Biden had not previously criticized arsonists, looters, or violent agitators that stemmed from Black Lives Matter protests across the country.  "Too little too late.  The left wing militants have been at war in America's cities for MONTHS and you're only commenting now because the polling told you to," Republican Rep. Dan Crenshaw of Texas tweeted.  "Amazing that after 90 days of silence (and not one mention at the DNC) on the looting and rioting in the #BidenRiots, Biden finally says something after CNN says it's hurting him in the polls.  Weak!" tweeted Donald Trump Jr.  In a Saturday Breitbart piece, commentator John Nolte claimed that "violence raged for 88 days before Joe Biden finally emerged from his Delaware bunker and said it was wrong."

Biden denounces violence, but fumbled a chance to defuse riot issue.  The violent clashes in Portland and Kenosha are bad news for Joe Biden's campaign.  It's not that he is to blame for the riots.  It's not that he hasn't occasionally condemned such violence, as he did in a more full-throated way yesterday in Pittsburgh.  It's not that everyone should automatically believe President Trump's explosive charge that no one will be safe in Joe Biden's America, since at the moment he holds no office.  But the Democratic nominee left himself vulnerable to this rhetoric assault, and he and his campaign have been less than nimble in playing defense.  To hold a four-day virtual convention and fail to mention the riots that have swept American cities in recent months was a major blunder, a gift-wrapped package to Donald Trump.  By focusing exclusively on the tragic deaths of people like George Floyd, Biden's convention sent a signal of indifference to the looting, burning and fatal gunshots of those protesting in the name of racial justice.

Not Even Joe Biden's Sign Language Interpreter Can Make Sense of Disastrous Pittsburgh Speech.  As we reported yesterday, Joe Biden gave a rare public speech at a former Pittsburgh steel mill Monday [8/31/2020] that was again illustrative to the American people as to just why his handlers have desperately tried to keep him sequestered in his basement for the remainder of the presidential campaign.  Not only was it chock full of lies and half-truths, but Biden badly mangled the speech by making multiple incoherent statements.  In fact, it got so bad at one point that even his sign language interpreter appeared to struggle to make sense of what was being said.  Watch below on the right as the interpreter tries desperately to translate for the 2020 Democratic presidential nominee, who fumbles a line about the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic.  [Video clip]

Biden walks out after Pittsburgh speech without taking questions.  Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden dodged questions from the press on Monday after addressing civil unrest publicly for the first time, providing ammunition for supporters of President Trump to claim he is going out of his way to avoid the media.  Roughly 63 days out from Election Day, Biden delivered a speech in Pittsburgh in which he accused Trump of being incapable of preventing the violence that's sprouted across multiple cities this summer.  Upon concluding his speech, the former vice president declined questions from reporters in the room, but he did acknowledge their presence at one point.

Biden: The Violent Riots Will Continue Unless You Vote Democrat.  Now that polls won't let them ignore the rioting, looting, murder, and arson this summer in Democrat-run American cities, openly cheered on by leftists like the Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times author Nikole Hannah-Jones, Democrats have made a hard pivot to — what else? — "Blame Trump."  We saw the blame-shifting begin last week with House Speaker "Republicans are domestic enemies" Nancy Pelosi.  Today, it came straight from Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden.

'This Is Really Bad' — Social Media Weighs in After Biden's Very Bad Day in Pittsburgh.  Joe Biden is in the Catch-22 of his political career, folks.  If he stays in his basement, he faces the legitimate question of whether he's fit — both physically and mentally — to assume the duties of the presidency.  If he hits the campaign trail, he runs the risk of... Pittsburgh.  The latter occurred on Monday, and it wasn't a pretty sight.  At all.  Put another way, Joe had a very bad day in Pittsburgh.  A really bad day.  As my RedState colleague Nick Arama reported, Biden gave a speech in Pittsburgh on Monday that went far beyond simple gaffes and pregnant pauses.  A performance that left little doubt.  Joe Biden is in decline.  Worse, Biden's decline is accelerating, seemingly every time he steps up to a microphone.  Garbled words and forgotten thoughts are now replaced with entire nonsensical sentences.  Even worse, he doesn't even seem to realize what he just said made no sense at all.

The Puppet Candidate in Two Pictures.  [Photos show Biden's speech as seen by viewers at home, then a wide shot showing an empty building with only news media photographers in carefully prescribed circles.]

Biden has no audience - Reuters photo
Biden Not Only Loses It in Speech in Pittsburgh, The Set Up of the 'Speech' Is the Strangest Ever.  Joe Biden gave a speech in Pittsburgh on Monday.  As we reported earlier, he tried to blame President Donald Trump for the riots violence despite the fact that it's leftists behind the violence in Democratically-run cities who Trump has done everything to try to help.  But there were some things beyond that that just screamed out for comment.  So this apparently was Joe Biden's audience, just media.  There was no audience.  [Photo]  That was bad enough.  But the delivery of the speech showed the deep problems that the Democrats have with Biden.  Biden identified one of the crisis under Trump as the "birth of the right American future." Wait, what?  He seems to either be completely losing track of what he's trying to say and/or not able to read his teleprompter.  Notice him seeming to squint.  [Video clip]

Joe Biden's America being burned down ... by Joe Biden's supporters.  Certainly, America is deeply divided today.  But every bit of the horrifying images and footage of burning, looting and violence we see today comes exclusively from Joe Biden's America.  The carnage in Joe Biden's America is the result of Democrat mayors and governors unwilling and unable to stand up to the lawless, rioting mob that outwardly claims it is motivated by the very same fevers and political positions that motivate Mr. Biden himself.  In fact, Mr. Biden's vice presidential pick, Sen. Kamala Harris, worked so hard to ingratiate herself with the increasingly unruly mob that she went on record a few weeks back raising money "to help post bail" for those arrested during the riots — riots they now claim to oppose.

Joe Biden's Craven Exercise In Blame Shifting.  After a thug shot and killed a Trump supporter Saturday night [8/29/2020] in Portland, Democratic nominee Joe Biden suddenly got religion when it comes to leftist riots in our nation's streets.  The former vice president "challenged" President Donald Trump to "condemn violence," then blamed Trump for "encouraging" it. [...] It goes beyond hypocrisy when Biden for months sat in his basement in near-total silence as his far-left supporters rioted, looted and burned U.S. cities, and his own party egged them on.  This same man chose as his vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris, who warned us all with a smile on her face during a television appearance that the protesting and rioting is "not gonna stop," not even after the election.  Funny what a bit of bad polling will do.

Joe Biden comes out against riots, prior passive position hurt his polling numbers.  According to a recent poll, swing state voters supported Biden and the president 49% to 48%, respectively. [...] With these statistics in mind, many on the left have urged Joe Biden to openly condemn the riots.  CNN anchor Don Lemon recently voiced his concern over the rioting in cities across America.  He believes the riots are the only major weakness for Biden and has urged the former vice president to publicly condemn the violence.

Fact Check:  Joe Biden Claims 'I Am Not Banning Fracking'.  CLAIM: Joe Biden claimed in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania:  "I am not banning fracking."  VERDICT: MOSTLY FALSE.  Biden has promised to ban fracking — repeatedly — as has his running mate.

Joe Biden's statement on the violence and riots is way too little, way too late.  After three months of violence, vandalism, and arson in our biggest cities, all of it excused and encouraged by Democrats, we're supposed to be impressed that the party's presidential nominee released a statement calling it "unacceptable."  The national media will no doubt declare the note, posted Sunday night [8/30/2020] on Biden's campaign site, a display of true leadership — because nothing arouses them more than a statement with words like "unequivocally" and "condolences."  But it's far too late for Democrats to pretend that they didn't overtly advocate for and make excuses for this horror show.  They've only changed their tune now because street violence, chaos, death, and fiery destruction are not exactly political winners — who knew?!  That doesn't mean we should forget that right up until last week, they thought and said that it was fantastic.

After Biden Condemns Violence In Portland, Crenshaw Fires: 'You're Only Commenting Now Because The Polling Told You To'.  On Sunday, after a deadly shooting in Portland, Oregon, in which an apparent Trump supporter was shot to death, Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden issued the following statement on Twitter:  "The deadly violence we saw overnight in Portland is unacceptable.  Shooting in the streets of a great American city is unacceptable.  I condemn violence of every kind by anyone, whether on the left or the right.  And I challenge Donald Trump to do the same." [...] Violent protests have plagued the city of Portland for roughly three months.  Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-TX), who lost an eye due to an IED blast while serving in Afghanistan, fired back at Biden, "Too little too late.  The left wing militants have been at war in America's cities for MONTHS and you're only commenting now because the polling told you to."

Biden Promises National Guard:  I'll Never Use the Military as 'a Prop'.  Former Vice President Joe Biden promised National Guard members Saturday he would never push them into a domestic political dispute as a "prop" and assured them they will "never, never have to wonder what side I'm on."

The Editor says...
Is anyone in the National Guard wondering about whose side President Trump is on?

Is Feudalism Our Future?  I think that if Biden and Harris win, the entire country will devolve to a kingdom of state and regional duchies composed of often semi-hereditary rulers in the pay of the rich, donor class, the clerisy (media scribblers, complaisant judicial appointees and academic rent seekers who promote favored policies and shut out the dissenters), an impoverished, smaller, and powerless middle class and a vast layer of muzzled, docile poor serfs.  They will rule by fiat (often inconsistently and illogically) as they have been in dealing with COVID-19.  Because they can, the Constitution to the contrary notwithstanding.

Why Democrats and their liberal media minions are running scared.  The Democrats and their media handmaidens are starting to panic about Joe Biden's prospects.  The proof comes in their efforts to wish away the wave of crime and violence engulfing many American cities.  Their argument can be boiled down to two false claims.  First, it's President Trump's fault.  Second, it's not that big of a wave.  The first is patently absurd on its face.  Democratic mayors running nearly all those cities are pulling back cops and rejecting federal help.  The blood is on their hands.  The second claim is outrageously cold-hearted.  It means the left sees hundreds of murders, mostly of black men, and the wholesale destruction of property as small prices to pay for putting Biden in the White House.

Joe Biden's unserious pandemic response.  If it were up to Joe Biden, the national shutdown implemented due to the coronavirus pandemic would never end.  When he accepted the nomination for president on the final night of the Democratic National Convention, he promised that if elected, he would pass a federal mask mandate as part of his effort to defeat the virus.  "It's a patriotic duty," he declared.  Of course, Biden didn't bother to elaborate on this proposed mandate or explain how his administration would enforce it — because he knows that such a heavy-handed restriction would be legally dubious and almost impossible to enforce.

A Tyranny Perpetual and Universal?  [Scroll down]  Biden has already promised to amnesty every illegal immigrant currently in the country.  According to a 2018 Yale study, that's at least 22 million people — all of whom, under America's idiotic immigration laws, immediately would be eligible to bring over relatives in the name of "family reunification." If each newly minted American brings over just one relative, that's another 20 million new immigrants in Biden's first term alone.  And nothing in the law would stop people from bringing over more than one.  Most sponsor several.  Such an amnesty, once the Democratic machine got everyone registered to vote, would tip many purple states permanently blue.  That's the whole point.  After that, the electoral map would become impossible for Republicans ever to win the presidency again.  Which is also the point.

Biden [is] unfit to be president if he won't debate Trump.  If former Vice President Joe Biden backs out of participating in the upcoming presidential debates, then he's unfit to occupy the Oval Office.  It's that simple.  The American people expect — and deserve — to hear from presidential candidates and learn where they stand on a multitude of important policy issues affecting our lives.  We need to listen to their vision for America vis-a-vis their opponent so voters can choose their candidate wisely come Election Day.  This is precisely why the Commission on Presidential Debates was established in 1987 to ensure that debates between candidates running for president and vice president of the United States are a permanent part of the electoral process.

Trump Takes $0 Salary, Reportedly Lost $300 Million This Year; Biden Made Millions After Leaving Office.  Supporters of President Donald Trump contended during the Republican National Convention this week the former businessman and reality television star has truly been seeking to serve the American people since taking office.  It has come at a financial cost to him.  Meanwhile, former Vice President Joe Biden, now the Democratic Party's nominee for president, took in $15.6 million in his first two years after leaving office, according to The Wall Street Journal.

Biden's Intended Race on Race.  [Scroll down]  Fast-forward nine months later.  Biden and Harris are again sharing a stage.  This time, it is at the Democratic National Convention's closing; Harris is now Biden's running mate and Biden has just given his nomination acceptance speech.  Biden's speech told America all we needed to know about why Biden chose Harris — despite their acrimonious past — and where Biden intends to take his campaign over the next two months.  If Joe has his way, this will be a race on race.  His acceptance speech's first words, after "good evening," were "Ella Baker, a giant of the civil rights movement, left us with this wisdom:  Give people light and they will find a way.  Give people light, those are words for our time."  Having connected his campaign message with "light," he would use "light" repeatedly throughout his 25-minute address.  Although lacking specifics, his subliminal racial message was clear:  I am the anti-racist; if you are not with me, you are a racist or condone racism.

The Biden 2020 Message:  Republicans Are All Racists, Now Let's Unite!  The Joe Biden being presented to the public for election to the highest office in the land does not exist in reality.  The empathetic, benevolent grandpa story is cut from whole cloth and easily disputable by anyone with access to Google and a compulsion for honesty.  The latter rules out the mainstream media, obviously. [...] Many like to attribute his current unpredictability on camera to his obvious cognitive decline but the truth is that he has been like this forever.  I distinctly remember many of my conservative friends thinking that Biden's erratic behavior was amusing when he was vice president.  I always thought it rather disturbing that someone that unstable was one heartbeat away from the presidency.  If you've been feeling a smidge nauseated in recent months, it may be due to the Democrats' insistence that Joe Biden is a man of great character who would restore dignity to the presidency.

Biden looks to break out of the basement and campaign in battlegrounds after Labor Day.  Biden, the two-term vice president, listed Arizona, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin as likely destinations during a fundraiser hosted by the Illinois Trial Lawyers Association.  But he promised that any plans would adhere to local and state rules "about how many people can, in fact, assemble."  "We're going to do it in a way that is totally consistent with being responsible, unlike what this guy's doing," he said, referring to Trump's nomination acceptance speech Thursday [8/27/2020] at the White House.

'This is embarrassing': All eyes on Biden interview as his eyes appear to be reading a script.  Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden's performance during an interview late Thursday on CNN captured plenty of attention, but for all the wrong reasons.  Speaking with CNN host Anderson Cooper, the Democrat nominee continuously stared off-screen, almost as if he was reading talking points from a script.  [Video clip]  While it's possible that he may have simply been staring off into space as he spoke, that wasn't the impression gleaned by critics, including former acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell and Fox News host Laura Ingraham.

The Editor says...
Mr. Biden was not "staring off into space."  He was looking down and to his left, where his cue cards were.  He was obviously reading talking points, and had probably rehearsed these talking points for some time before the interview.  Notice the "phony concerned look" on Anderson Cooper's face as he waits patiently for Mr. Biden to expound for as long as he likes.  If Mr. Cooper had been interviewing a Republican, he would have interrupted with his own views every few seconds.  It's entirely possible that Mr. Anderson and Mr. Biden were exchanging pre-arranged questions and answers.

Trump makes riveting case for reelection, shows America what it is in for if Biden wins.  If the point of a political convention is to get your party's message out, win over voters and boost your candidate's prospects, then make no mistake about the 2020 conventions, Republicans absolutely buried Democrats.  The polling tells us so.  Joe Biden got zero boost from the Democrats' grievance-fueled slog-fest last week.  The Democratic presidential nominee's polls did not move higher; in fact, they dropped, and especially in the critical swing states.

Biden Faces Backlash For Misleading Attack On Trump Regarding Violence In Democrat Cities.  Biden's attack, featured in a tweet, came in response to Trump hammering him during the Republican National Convention on the issue of violence in the inner cities.  "We must never allow mob rule, we can never allow mob rule," Trump said.  "In the strongest possible terms, the Republican Party condemns the rioting, looting, arson, and violence we have seen in Democrat run cities all, like Kenosha, Minneapolis, Portland, Chicago, and New York, and many others Democrat-run.  There is violence and danger in the streets of many Democrat-run cities throughout America."  "This problem could easily be fixed if they wanted to," Trump continued.  "Just call; we are ready to go in.  We will take care of your problem in a matter of hours.  Just call.  We have to wait for the call.  It's too bad we have to, but we have to wait for the call.  We must always have law and order."

Like trapped rats, Democrats and other leftists are starting to get nervous.  No one believes in "President Biden," which is a generic idea without any policies attached.  Trump offers Americans a mirror of themselves and their highest aspirations.  That's a winner.

Biden offers support for Milwaukee Bucks following boycott of playoff game.  Democratic Presidential Candidate Joe Biden offered his support for the Milwaukee Bucks after the team boycotted a playoff game Wednesday in solidarity with Jacob Blake.  "This moment demands moral leadership.  And these players answered by standing up, speaking out, and using their platform for good," Biden tweeted.  "Now is not the time for silence."

The guy who's hiding in his basement because he can't carry on a coherent conversation says, "Now is not the time for silence."

'I Don't Think There Should Be Any Debates:' Nancy Pelosi Says Biden Should Not 'Legitimize' Trump.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) said on Thursday [8/27/2020] that Joe Biden should not participate in debates with President Trump during the general election campaign.  "Don't tell anybody I told you this, especially don't tell Joe Biden:  I don't think there should be any debates," Pelosi told reporters at a press conference.  "I do not think that the president of the United States has comported himself in a way that has any association with truth, evidence, data, and facts.  I wouldn't legitimize a conversation with him, nor a debate in terms of the presidency of the United States."

The Editor says...
Ms. Pelosi doesn't want Biden to debate Trump (or even submit to a moderately friendly interview on Fox News Sunday) because Joe Biden will make a fool of himself if he speaks extemporaneously on live TV.

Nancy Pelosi:  "I Don't Think That There Should Be Any Debates.  You knew this was going to happen.  Speaker Nancy Pelosi told reporters on Thursday morning, "I don't think there should be any debates."  Then she added, "I wouldn't legitimize a conversation with him."  Anyone paying attention knew this was coming.  There is no way [...] senile Joe Biden can stand in a debate with President Donald Trump.

Where is Biden's post-convention bounce?  The week before the Democratic convention, the polls showed Donald Trump trimming Biden's double-digit lead into single figures.  The numbers varied, but they averaged out to suggest that Biden was 7 or 8 percent ahead — not yet within the margin of error, but trending toward it.  The Democrats' non-conference that was nearly in Milwaukee was meant to arrest that decline.  Biden's numbers, the punditry promised, would be sent soaring by Kamala Harris, just as Hillary Clinton gained 4 percent in the polls after the 2016 Democratic convention.  But a week after that tedious infomercial, three polls show that Biden has pulled off the near-impossible.  Biden hasn't just failed to achieve a post-conference bounce.

Biden's lack of a travel plan worries some Democrats.  When former President Obama delivered his convention speech from Philadelphia last week, it raised some questions for Democrats about Joe Biden's lack of a travel schedule.  Biden has been effectively sidelined because of the coronavirus pandemic, keeping his public appearances largely confined to his hometown of Wilmington, Del., where he also ended up accepting his party's nomination last week.  "I think a lot of people thought, 'If Obama can get on a plane and travel, why can't Biden?'" said one Democratic strategist, who pointed to the former president's trip from Massachusetts to Philadelphia for his prime-time address.

President Trump Requests that Drug Tests of Candidates Be Taken Before the 2020 Presidential Debates.  Something is going on with Joe Biden.  We can all see it.  President Trump sees it too which is why he is calling for drug tests before the 2020 Presidential debates.  Joe Biden just isn't right.  In events over the past year Biden looks crazy and says even crazier things.  It's no wonder President Trump wants Biden drug tested before their debates this fall.

Kamala Harris, Not Feeble Basement-Dwelling Joe Biden, Will Travel to DC to Deliver Counter to President Trump's Convention Speech.  Kamala Harris, not basement-dwelling Joe Biden will travel to DC to deliver a counter to President Trump's convention speech on Thursday [8/27/2020].  77-year-old (almost 78) Joe Biden is too feeble to travel and campaign.  Biden rarely leaves his Delaware basement and when he does, he stays close to home so he can shuffle back to his bunker for a nap.  Now he's deploying his running mate as the main event to counter President Trump's convention speech.

Biden Wants To Fund What He Admits Is the Taking Of Human Life.  If you take Joe Biden at his word, he intends to do something profoundly evil:  codify a "right" to deliberately kill innocent human beings and then use federal dollars to pay for that killing.  Back in 2012, when then-Vice President Biden debated Rep. Paul Ryan, who was the Republican vice presidential nominee, Biden conceded a scientific fact — but postured as if it were a religious proposition.  With regard to abortion," Biden said, "I accept my church's position on abortion as what we call a de fide doctrine.  Life begins at conception.  That's the church's judgment.  I accept it in my personal life."  But the question of whether human life begins at conception is not ultimately a question of religious doctrine or judgment.  It is a question of scientific fact.

Pam Bondi launches attack on Hunter Biden at GOP convention.  Former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi (R) revived her role from President Trump's impeachment trial in a speech at the Republican National Convention on Tuesday, using the address to attack Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden.  Bondi used her speech on the second night of the convention to lob a series of attacks at the Bidens, accusing them of nepotism when Joe Biden served as vice president in the Obama administration and seeking to turn his campaign plan to "Build Back Better" against the candidate.  "We all know about Joe's son Hunter Biden," she said.  "A corrupt Ukrainian oligarch put Hunter on the board of his gas company, even though he had no experience in the country or in the energy sector.  None.  Yet he was paid millions to do nothing."

Biden's "Dislikes" Mysteriously Disappear From YouTube.  During Joe Biden's 'acceptance' speech on Thursday, there were strong, negative reactions posted to his YouTube channel, as well as the Democrat Party's page.  In real time, live audience "dislikes" significantly outnumbered "likes."  However, suddenly, those 'dislikes' have been removed.

Joe Biden's mysteriously disappearing "Dislikes" on YouTube.  During Joe Biden's presidential nomination acceptance speech Thursday night, both his personal YouTube page and the Democratic Party's YouTube page saw strong, negative reactions from live audiences.  In fact, "Dislikes" outnumbered "Likes," in real time.  Yet both pages' "Dislikes" mysteriously dropped in the hours after the Democratic National Convention (DNC) had concluded.  The changing statistics led some on social media to wonder if the Google-owned YouTube platform was protecting Biden.  The number of Democratic convention stream "Dislikes" — or people pressing a button saying they did not like the content onscreen — dropped on Friday below where they stood on Thursday last night.  The removed Dislikes could be a signal that YouTube is concerned about fake accounts or bots trying to influence the election or indicative of something else, experts said.

What Joe Biden's America would look like in 2021.  It is now November 2021, one year after Joe Biden was elected president after a razor-thin election.  We have been given a glimpse into the future to see Biden's America.  Summer 2021 was another scorcher.  The rolling brownouts California suffered in 2020 spread throughout the West.  Record demand for air conditioning combined with the ongoing closures of coal, nuclear, and even gas-powered electric plants have left millions powerless in these heat waves.  Energy Secretary Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, with the support of President Biden, has permanently extended the airlines' drastic curtailments of flights, first seen during the late pandemic, in keeping with the Green New Deal they both support.

Hillary Clinton:  Biden 'should not concede under any circumstances'.  Hillary Clinton urged Joe Biden not to concede the presidential race if he is trailing President Trump on election night.  Clinton, who lost to Trump in the 2016 election and conceded the morning after the contest, said she believes this year's election will drag out for several days because of issues with voting during the pandemic.  She told Showtime's The Circus that Biden would be wise to stay in the race long past Election Day.  "Joe Biden should not concede under any circumstances because I think this is going to drag out, and eventually, I do believe he will win if we don't give an inch and if we are as focused and relentless as the other side is," Clinton said.

If Joe Biden loses the election by a substantial and undeniable margin, it doesn't matter if he concedes or not.

Five ways the Democrat convention backfired on Joe Biden, benefitting Donald Trump.  Has President Trump just eaten Joe Biden's lunch?  Sure looks that way based on multiple indicators flashing pro-Trump signals in the wake of the Democratic National Convention.  Sure, the leftist press is reporting that Biden's favorability numbers have notched up in the wake of his curiously gaffe-less convention speech, but it's thin gruel.  Fact is, that's the only thing they have.  But if you look mostly on the right column of the front page of RealClearPolitics, it's pretty clear the trend is President Trump's friend.  Apparently the artifice and over-processed convention infomercial, with its many technical sleights of hand, didn't fool the voters.  And if it did, not all that many of them watched.  Television ratings were down 12% over the previous four-year period.  America has more than 150 million registered voters, and only 22 million bothered to watch.

Biden promises to raise taxes on Americans making more than $400,000 per year.  Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden said that if he wins the presidency in November's election, he will raise taxes on Americans who earn more than $400,000 a year.  In an interview with ABC's David Muir that aired Sunday, Biden discussed his plan for raising taxes that included this segment of the population and appeared to include businesses as well.  "I will raise taxes for anybody making over $400,000," Biden said.  "Let me tell you why I'm going to do it.  It's about time they start paying a fair share of the economic responsibility we have.  The very wealthy should pay a fair share — corporations should pay a fair share."  Biden referred to businesses that take in "close to a trillion dollars and pay no tax at all."

Joe Biden's doddering interviews prove he may not be all there.  Despite the fact that he would be 82 years old at the start of his second term, Joe Biden on Sunday declared that he would "absolutely" serve a full eight years if elected president in November.  If you remember, back in May, he answered concerns about his declining cognitive function by saying, "I will be a transition candidate."  But in his first prime-time interview since April, on ABC's "World News Tonight," Biden emphatically denied he meant he would serve only one term.  "No.  It doesn't mean that."  Then he laughed off a question about his mental fitness.  "Watch me."  Trouble is, we've been trying to watch Biden all year.  We don't ever get to see him unedited or without a teleprompter, without his wife or some helper at his side.

Biden Sorta Pretends to be a Nationalist.  [Joe Biden's acceptance speech was] mostly an anodyne rehearsal of standard American patriotism, and featured the usual Four Point Plan — okay, Four Crises Joe is going to fight:  ["]The worst pandemic in over 100 years.  The worst economic crisis since the Great Depression.  The most compelling call for racial justice since the 60's.  And the undeniable realities and accelerating threats of climate change.["]  Actually, I predict, in two years comedians will be making jokes about all four "crises."  Worst pandemic?  Yeah, since the infestation of Pet Rocks!  Worst economic crisis?  More like the biggest v-shaped economic bounce in history.  Racial justice?  Over a career criminal that overdosed himself and died while being restrained waiting for the ambulance?  Climate change?  Yeah, I get it.  That "See the USA in Your Chevrolet" really was the worst thing ever.  Imagine, bitter clingers and gun nuts driving needlessly all over the continent!  The sooner we put a stop to that, the better.

Joe Biden's Long Career As A Racist.  For example, when he was in the Senate, Biden praised a pro-Confederacy group that supported white-supremacists and the KKK and who prominently displayed the Confederate flag as "fine people."  The video below shows the Democrat candidate singing the praises of the United Daughters Of The Confederacy (UDC).  In the clip, time-stamped on July 23rd, 1993, Biden states that the group is "an organization made up of many fine people who continue to display the Confederate flag."  The UDC has been identified as supporters of the KKK and advocates for white supremacy.  The clip is especially significant because Biden launched his campaign, explicitly smearing President Trump for a media-generated hoax involving his comments in Charlottesville in 2017.  [Video clip]

Sharyl Attkisson:  Claim That Jill Biden Cheated on Ex-Husband is Fair Game — But Media Ignored This Scandal for Some Reason?  Investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson joined Steve Malzberg on Beat the Press Saturday [8/22/2020] on Russia Today.  During the interview Malzberg brought up the recent comments by Jill Biden's former husband.  According to reports Bill Stevenson, Jill's ex, accused the potential First Lady of having an affair with Joe Biden and then lying about how they met in the 1970s.  The networks ignored this scandal last week during the convention when the report first broke.  Sharyl Attkisson said this alleged affair should be fair game for the media.

Biden Hasn't Tested for Covid as Campaign Enters Busiest Period.  Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden hasn't been tested for coronavirus, a top aide said on Sunday, as the campaign enters its busiest period.  "He has not been tested," Kate Bedingfield, deputy manager for Biden's presidential campaign, said on ABC's "This Week."  "We have put the strictest protocols in place, and moving forward, should he need to be tested, he certainly would be."  She also said Biden hasn't had the virus, although it's not clear how this would be known without a test.

Did Biden's Deputy Campaign Manager Accidentally Reveal Why He's Hiding in His Basement?  Former Vice President Joe Biden has been hiding in his basement for months since the start of the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic. [...] Despite being asked about what they're doing, the Biden campaign has refused to answer whether or not the former vice president has been tested or came up positive for the Wuhan coronavirus.  Because of that, ABC's George Stephanopoulos asked Deputy Campaign Manager Kate Bedingfield what's taking place. [...] Interestingly enough, Bedingfield said Biden hasn't had the virus, but he also has not been tested.  "We've put the strictest protocols in place and, moving forward, should he need to be tested, he certainly would be, but he has not been tested yet," she said. [...] If Biden hasn't been routinely tested for the Wuhan coronavirus, how do we know that he never had it?  Both President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence are routinely tested for the virus out of an abundance of caution.  Shouldn't the same thing be happening with the Biden campaign?

Why isn't Joe Biden being tested for COVID-19?  Joe Biden has faced questions on his mental and physical acuity throughout his presidential bid.  For example, he first said he is cognitively tested 'all the time' and then clarified to say he has not had a formal cognitive test[.]  But there is a larger issue lingering over the 77-year-old — Joe Biden has not been tested for COVID-19.  Joe Biden receives Secret Service protection and intelligence briefings similar to that of the President.  So why is he refusing to be tested regularly, as the President is, for a highly contagious virus that has killed 173,000 Americans?  As of August 19, COVID-19 has claimed the lives of approximately 41,000 Americans aged between 74 and 85.  Joe Biden is an American aged between 74 and 85.  The last time Biden personally spoke about being tested was July 28, almost a full month ago.

America's leading white supremacist announces his surprise endorsement.  One of the most revolting things about Joe Biden's candidacy is his dishonest insistence that Donald Trump called white supremacists "fine people."  Democrats have successfully used this hoax to brainwash large parts of the American public into believing that Trump and his supporters are racists and anti-Semites.  One wonders, therefore, how much consternation there is in Biden campaign headquarters now that Richard Spencer, one of America's best-known neo-Nazis, is all in for Biden.

It's time for Joe Biden to start taking questions.  Whatever one might say about President Trump, it cannot be said that he's afraid to engage with the media. [...] Biden, in contrast, has run the most stealth presidential campaign in modern history.  It was one thing, early on, for Biden to try and remain in his basement during the initial phases of the coronavirus pandemic.  But since then, he has used the virus as an excuse to avoid scrutiny.  We now know enough about the virus to know that outdoor appearances, with proper physical distancing, pose little COVID-19 transmission risk.  Even if he did want to remain in isolation, however, he could still submit himself to tougher interviews.  If he has time to chat with rapper Cardi B, he certainly has time to sit down for a virtual interview with Fox's Chris Wallace — or any other journalist who would ask him tough questions.  And there are certainly ways to do press conferences in a safe way.

Bishop: I Don't See How Joe Biden Claims to Be a 'Good and Faithful Catholic'.  Tennessee Bishop Rick Stika questioned Joe Biden's standing as a Catholic on Friday, basing that on Biden's public stance against Church teaching regarding abortion.  "Don't understand how Mr. Biden can claim to be a good and faithful Catholic as he denies so much of Church teaching especially on the absolute child abuse and human rights violations of the most innocent, the not yet born," wrote Bishop Stika on Twitter Friday.

Twenty (Uncomfortable) Questions.  [#9] Joe Biden has dementia.  My aunt and uncle showed similar signs.  If Biden can't leave his basement to campaign, then how can he meet world leaders?  Does he still realize there is a world?  Or leaders?

Joe Biden accused of plagiarizing Canadian politician in DNC speech.  Joe Biden is being accused of plagiarizing the words of a left-wing Canadian politician in his convention speech.  In his highly anticipated convention speech on Thursday, the Democratic nominee said, "Love is more powerful than hate.  Hope is more powerful than fear.  And light is more powerful than dark."  Canadians were quick to point out that those words were extremely similar to the dying message of Jack Layton, the leader of Canada's New Democratic Party, who in 2011 wrote, "My friends, love is better than anger.  Hope is better than fear.  Optimism is better than despair."  CBC correspondent Alexander Panetta pointed out the similarities on Twitter.

Joe Biden faces new plagiarism claim over DNC acceptance speech.  Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden reprised his penchant for borrowing lines from other people's work this week — apparently relying a bit too heavily on the words of a deceased Canuck party leader during his acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention, reports said.  Biden concluded his Thursday night speech by saying:  "For love is more powerful than hate.  Hope is more powerful than fear.  Light is more powerful than dark."  But Canadian media quickly noted that the former veep's words were uncannily similar to those of Jack Layton, the leader of Canada's left-wing New Democratic Party, who issued a poignant open letter to his fellow citizens as he lay dying in 2011.

Did Joe Biden really deliver that speech live?  Probably not.  [Scroll down]  But was Joe's speech broadcast to us live, and just as delivered?  He was not in front of a live audience; he was behind a podium on a bare stage with all the flags and colorful background added digitally using the same technique — blue-screen — that TV weathermen use to stand in front of a weather map.  He was clearly reading every word from the teleprompter.  At least we know he can still read; he garbles some words but he appeared to read it competently.  But did he read the whole speech from start to finish, 25 minutes without any of his (in)famous flubs?  Not likely.  Even with skilled presenters, it is standard practice with prerecorded speeches and interviews to piece together multiple takes, and trim out the mistakes, using an amazing editing tool that renders invisible all the edits removing pauses, umm's, flubs, etc. from an interview or a speech, and to seamlessly piece together multiple takes of the speech.

The Editor says...
What are the chances that a notoriously confused old man, who can't speak an extemporaneous sentence without an embarrassing gaffe, would make it through a rather lengthy acceptance speech error-free on (the equivalent of) live TV?  The chances are near zero.  This means the speech was almost certainly recorded earlier, and the errors edited out.  This is feasible, if the speaker remains nearly motionless for the whole speech, and if the edits are carefully placed.  You didn't ask for technical details, but here they are anyway:  [#1] Mr. Biden's speech was delivered over the internet — from his basement to the control room, and again from the control room to the rest of the world.  Any momentary glitches, frame-grabs, and freezes would naturally be assumed to have resulted from network congestion or other IP issues.  Thus, any less-than-seamless edits would be passed off as transmission errors.  [#2] Incidentally, the blue chromakey screen fell out of favor at about the same time solid-state studio cameras came into widespread use in the ealy 1980's.  A chromakey wall these days is almost always green.  One of the problems with a blue chromakey is that the blue channel in the studio camera is the one with the worst signal-to-noise ratio, and the resulting key is often quite rough around the edges.

No, Joe's Health is NOT Out of Bounds.  Memory loss is common with age and can be either Alzheimer's or mini-strokes.  Those miniature strokes involve tiny areas of brain, with unpredictable results.  Depending on details, there can be vascular dementia, with problems in concentration, reasoning, decision-making, memory, and agitation.  Because Joe hasn't released his detailed medical records, we are left to make a best guess as to what is likely happening.  We know that Joe gets worse when he's out in public under stress.  That is consistent with either process.  His other difficulties point more toward mini-strokes.  But they don't rule out the possibility that both are happening.  And we should remember his comment that he is getting older, suggesting that after one term, his V.P. would need to take over.  That tells us he knows he's in medical trouble.  The United States cannot afford a president whose brain is operating at less than full strength.

Jill Biden's First Husband Says She and Joe Have Been Lying For Decades About How They Got Together.  The ex-husband of Jill Biden is speaking out this week to claim that she and Joe have been lying for decades about the way they met, alleging that they actually had an affair that broke up her first marriage.  Bill Stevenson told Daily Mail that Biden's story that he met Jill and fell in love with her after a blind date is completely made up.  He added that he is about to publish a bombshell book that will blow the lid off the entire story forever.

Final Day of the Democrat Pros and Cons — As PR Pros Combine to Con America.  The program's religious portion continues with Joe Biden talking to a reverend:  "I happen to be a practicing Catholic," he says.  Again, I just do not understand.  The Vatican opposes abortion and is pro-life.  It opposes abortifacients.  It opposes gay marriage.  I can understand that there are Catholics, like other Christians and like Jews, who do not practice.  But Biden invokes his religion and says he is a "practicing Catholic."  Is he?  Later in the program Pete Buttigieg will tell us that Biden supports gay marriage.  OK, that is a matter of public policy, but is that "practicing Catholicism"?  As an Orthodox Jew, I am not authorized to say.  I may say that I cannot understand how someone can so publicly oppose certain Vatican teachings and yet identify otherwise.  I am open to learning.

Rudy Giuliani Interviews Doctors On Biden's 'Rapidly Declining' Cognitive State.  In the latest episode of his podcast Common Sense, Former Mayor of New York Rudy Giuliani interviewed two esteemed doctors about their professional medical opinion on Joe Biden's cognitive state.  Giuliani had the doctors review tapes of Biden over the years to analyze his decline.  Dr. Alan Mazurek, who is the Clinical Instructor of Neurology at the Icahn School of Medicine, asserted that Biden's cognitive impairment is beyond a mild stage.  He explained that Biden "is having difficulty with simple activities."

Joe Biden's con job.  Joe Biden drew a lot of pundit praise on all sides for his Democratic National Convention acceptance speech, signaling just how reasonable and "moderate" and mainstream he is.  He loves his country.  He prays to God.  He thinks America is full of good people.  He opposes COVID.  He hates dictators.  He cares about you.  He care about jobs "for everyone."  He'll bring the economy back. [...] Just one problem:  It's a con.  What Biden is promising as Honest Joe is for the cameras alone.  It's not just lies, which are also abundant, it's bait and switch.  What he's proposing and what's really there in the Democratic list of priorities and plans are absolute opposites.

Biden to ABC Reporter: 'I Would Listen to the Scientists and Shut the Entire Country Down' to Stop the Spread of COVID-19.  2020 Democrat nominee Joe Biden on Friday told ABC reporter David Muir that he would shut down the entire country to stop the spread of COVID-19 if the scientists recommended.  Biden called for a mandatory nationwide mask mandate during his unhinged Democrat nomination acceptance speech in Delaware.  "I would shut it down; I would listen to the scientists," Biden told Muir Friday [8/21/2020] in his first joint interview with his running mate Kamala Harris.  Of course Biden failed to explain how he would even have the authority to shut down the entire country.

Biden Says Climate Change Is One of 'Four Historic Crises' Facing the Nation.  "Four historic crises.  All at the same time.  A perfect storm," Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden said in his acceptance speech Thursday night [8/20/2020].  He included climate change in those four crises: [...] ["]The worst pandemic in over 100 years.  The worst economic crisis since the Great Depression.  The most compelling call for racial justice since the 60's.  And the undeniable realities and just the accelerating threats of climate change.["]

The Editor says...
[#1] The "worst pandemic in over 100 years" would hardly have been noticed, in the absence of news media sensationalism and anti-Trump hysteria.  Moreover, it was foisted on us by the Chinese Communists.  [#2] The economic crisis is almost entirely the fault of news media sensationalism (did I mention that already?) and a string of Democrat governors (along with RINO Greg Abbott) and county-level tyrants imposing needless lockdowns.  [#3] Anarchists rioting in the streets is not a "compelling call for racial justice."  [#4]  Climate change is not a threat, nor is it accelerating in either the warming or cooling direction.  If not for the news media (see above), you'd never know if the average temperature world-wide was changing one or two degrees per century, or the sea level was increasing by a millimeter every year.

Joe Biden's 'Four Crises' Deliberately Ignore Rising Crime and Left-Wing Riots.  A startling rise in violent crime and months of left-wing riots are not included on Joe Biden's list of presidential priorities.  On Thursday night [8/20/2020], Biden gave his speech accepting the Democrat nomination for president.  The address clearly laid out his priorities, what he called the "four historic crises." [...] There's no way around the fact that like the rest of the Democrat party and the corporate media propaganda machine, Biden has decided to pretend months of rioting and an explosion of violent crime just isn't happening.  We all know why this makes the left uncomfortable.  The riots and violent crime explosion are all happening in Democrat-run cities.  What's more, the riots are almost exclusively led by the Democrats' Brownshirts, the left-wing terrorists in Antifa and Black Lives Matter.

Biden's speech managed to be simultaneously vapid and disgraceful.  Here's a short list of Biden's platitudes:  Trump is darkness.  I am light.  FDR was a great president.  Help young people by ending Trump's darkness.  America is racist.  More darkness, more light.  You must judge Trump's entire presidency by looking at the six months of the Wuhan virus and its damage to the economy (damage wrought, though he doesn't say it, by Democrat politicians).  America had the worst virus outbreak in the world.  (That's not true, by the way, but it is true that Democrat policies, especially regarding nursing homes, made it horrifically worse than it should have been.)  Trump will kill the economy.  Trump will take people's insurance.  Wasn't Obama great?  Trump isn't great.  No one suffers in America the way minorities do.  Trump didn't protect Americans, but I will. [...]

In just 5 words, Joe Biden tells America everything they need to know.  On Thursday night, Joe Biden and the Democrats wrapped up their week of the Democratic National Convention.  Rather than a convention, it was almost an hourly infomercial filled with media celebrations in between clips.  Celebrities and politicians joined forces to tell you everything that is wrong with America.  It can be summed up in just two words for them:  Donald Trump.  They believe that everything in our country is the fault of the current "occupant of the White House," as Joe Biden called him in his acceptance speech.  I find that very statement deeply troubling.  Why?  Because that's the language of the anti-Semite, anti-America, radically-socialist squad.  Time after time, these representatives have proven their hatred for anything America.  They hate our history, our freedom, and our way of life.  They hate the American dream and for America to be the land of opportunity.  Instead, they favor America to be the place of the handouts and enslaved.

Joe Biden Trucks.  Joe Trucks are driving around Wilmington, Delaware where Joe Biden's speech will be given tonight at the Democratic National Convention.

Phony Lines from Barack Obama's Speech.  [#2] Obama touted Biden's character.  "Joe's a man who learned early on to treat every person he meets with respect and dignity....That empathy, that decency, the belief that everybody counts — that's who Joe is." That's a Pants on Fire lie.  Just weeks ago, he sneered that any black voter who didn't support him isn't really black.  In 2012, Biden smeared Wall Street before a black audience:  "They're gonna put y'all back in chains."  Examples abound.

Joe Biden Repeats the 'Very Fine People' Hoax at DNC.  CLAIM:  Joe Biden said (again) that President Donald Trump called neo-Nazis in Charlottesville "very fine people."  VERDICT: FALSE.  Trump said the neo-Nazis should be "condemned totally."  Biden knows he is lying about this.

Biden Repeats Charlottesville Lie in Dishonest and Divisive DNC Acceptance Speech.  [Scroll down]  So if Joe Biden considers the antifa and BLM thugs in Charlottesville to be "those with the courage to stand against" racism, what does he think of the antifa agitators in Seattle and Portland?  What does he think of the BLM looters in Chicago and New York City?  There is something kinda weird about Biden's fixation on a three year old riot that involved white supremacists when there are violent left-wing riots going on every night in our nation's cities that he has nothing to say about.  Not only has the Democrat not condemned the riots, in July, he lashed out at the Trump administration for "sowing chaos and division" after Homeland Security deployed federal officers to cities to quell the violence.

Joe Biden Flubs DNC Speech Climax: 'There's Never Been Anything We've Been Able to Accomplish When We've Done it Together'.  Joe Biden (D) experienced another brain freeze moment during the climax of his Democratic National Convention (DNC) address Thursday evening, telling the audience that there has "never been anything we've been able to accomplish when we've done it together."  While accepting the party's nomination as its presidential candidate, Biden said the United States is facing four crises, which he is best equipped to fix after decades served in the Senate and White House.  Those challenges are, in his words:  "the worst pandemic in over 100 years.  The worst economic crisis since the Great Depression.  The most compelling call for racial justice since the '60s, and the undeniable realities and just accelerating threats of climate change."

Convention Wrap Up:  Dems Keep Joe Biden's Agenda Hidden In The Basement.  A live audience wasn't the only thing missing from the Democratic National Convention this year.  So too was any substantive discussion of Joe Biden's agenda should he win the White House.  Has there ever been a political convention so utterly devoid of substance?  In her mercifully brief speech on Wednesday [8/19/2020], Hillary Clinton said that:  "Everyone has a story about Joe's thoughtfulness and empathy."  Apparently, team Biden required everyone who spoke at the convention to tell their stories.  Almost none made it through their few minutes or airtime without exclaiming how empathetic, thoughtful, trustworthy — and other descriptions you normally hear at a eulogy, not a presidential convention — Biden is.

Twitter Kicked Me Off for Saying This But I'm Going to Double Down.  "What kind of person sues nuns," I asked in a fervent tone.  The answer was Joe Biden.  "I can't stand this creep.  Between the sniffing and the suing and deceit — there is nothing worthwhile.  He's a completely worthless human being.  Trash, decay, scum.  He brings with him nothing but sorrow and theft," I ranted on Twitter.  I minced no words.  This election is not a time for niceties.  These socialist sociopaths need to be exposed for what they are, and each of us who has a voice should be using it, loudly, to do so.  Twitter disagreed and decided to suppress my voice.  Some leftist with a mute button working for corporate Twitter deemed me in violation of Twitter's "abuse and harassment" policy.  Twitter claimed I committed "targeted harassment" by "wishing or hoping someone experiences physical harm."

Fox News Panel Goes Haywire After Brit Hume Calls Biden 'Senile'.  Fox News' Outnumbered took a dramatic turn on Wednesday [8/19/2020] when Brit Hume argued that former Vice President Joe Biden is "senile."  Throughout the 2020 election, Hume has repeatedly insisted that Biden's tendency for gaffes is proof that the ex-veep's cognitive acuity is collapsing.  As Wednesday's #OneLuckyGuy on Outnumbered, Hume said Senator Kamala Harris' 2020 DNC convention speech might be more significant than usual because she could become president if Biden is ever deemed mentally incompetent.

Multimillionaire Obamas Haven't Donated to Joe Biden's Campaign.  Barack H. Obama and his wife Michelle became fabulously wealthy after leaving the White House in 2017.  For whatever reason, they haven't given a single dollar of their massive fortune to Joe Biden's presidential campaign.  President Obama has hosted virtual fundraisers for his former running mate and urged Democrats to give "any amount you can" to Biden's campaign.  Michelle addressed the virtual Democratic convention on Monday, but didn't even show her arms.  Barack is scheduled to give the primetime address on Wednesday night.  But neither have personally contributed a dime to Biden's campaign, according to federal election records.

Kamala Harris Promises That Joe Biden Will 'End This Pandemic'.  Democratic vice presidential nominee Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) vowed that her running mate Joe Biden "will bring us together to end" the coronavirus pandemic.  "Joe will bring us together to end this pandemic and make sure that we are prepared for the next one," Harris said during her VP acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention (DNC) on Wednesday night [8/19/2020].  Harris and other DNC speakers criticized President Donald Trump for the pandemic.  "Donald Trump's failure of leadership has cost lives and livelihoods," she said.  Harris' promise that Biden will end the coronavirus pandemic is not the first disease the Biden campaign has vowed to cure.  Former Vice President Biden vowed to cure cancer during a campaign stop in June 2019.

5 Things to Know About Night 3 of the Democratic National Convention.  [#1] Obama acted like he didn't try to keep Biden from running.  So, former President Barack Obama endorsed his former vice president, Joe Biden.  Obama said, "Twelve years ago, when I began my search for a vice president, I didn't know that I'd end up finding a brother."  He failed to mention his history of telling Biden not to run, however.  Last year, The New York Times published a lengthy feature about Biden's relationship with Obama.  Among other things, the Times reported that Obama told his VP not to run in 2016 because he thought Hillary Clinton had the best shot at continuing his legacy.  Yet Obama also tried to convince Biden not to run in 2020.

Goodman: Hunter Biden's Mysterious Source of Income Creates Problems for Biden Campaign.  After Hunter Biden abruptly resolved a $453,890 tax lien, Joe Biden's campaign needs to explain the younger Biden's source of income, Washington Free Beacon investigative reporter Alana Goodman told Fox Business on Tuesday [8/11/2020].  "How did he manage to pay off this $450,000 tax lien in six days?  You know, most people just don't have a half a million dollars lying around," Goodman said.  Goodman questioned Hunter Biden's ability to resolve the lien after he told an Arkansas judge in his paternity case last November that he was unemployed, in debt, and lacked income.  "We asked the Biden campaign, 'How was he able to settle this?'" Goodman said.  "'What happened, how did he get this money, and does he have a job now?'  And we got no response from the Biden campaign."

Democrats don't acknowledge what's happening in our cities.  Who needs conventions, who needs crowded arenas?  Democrats used the magic of technology and clever casting to give their party a passable first night.  Forced by the coronavirus to create a make-believe gathering, planners employed all of Silicon Valley's bells and whistles to present a simulated intimacy involving both ordinary people and party stars.  Minus a few glitches, the flow was seamless, sometimes too smooth to be credible.  We saw more of Joe Biden via taped videos than we have in the last four months of the campaign.  In the real world, he's been hiding in his basement.  Monday night, he was here, there and everywhere, shaking hands, embracing people, giving flawless, forceful speeches.  You know there was heavy editing because he never once got stuck in a tongue twister or got lost in a long sentence.  If he's really that good, why has he been hiding?

What Happened to Biden?  The Trump campaign released a new ad today that highlights Joe Biden's senility.  The ad is tough and uncompromising, and it strikes at Biden's weakest point.  To the extent there are swing voters left in America, they don't want a president who can't function and may not live long.  That is the truth; call it brutal if you want to.

The second night of the DNC was somehow worse than the first.  Joe Biden accepted the Democratic Party's nomination in what might have been the most awkward, unexciting way possible.  After a Democratic official announced that Biden had won a majority of the party's delegates, the virtual event switched over to the high school library where Biden and his wife, Jill Biden, waited.  This segment was obviously live because the transition was so clunky that viewers had to watch the two stand there smiling awkwardly while stringed confetti fell from the ceiling.  But don't worry.  Democrats made sure to include prerecorded applause from multiple guests, switching back and forth from the shot of the Bidens to a screen filled with floating heads and awkward clapping.

Highs and lows of Day 2 at the Democratic National Convention.  In one respect, the virtual Democratic convention proved last night to be a massive improvement on the real thing:  The roll call of the states leading to the nomination of the presidential candidate. [...] But it was followed by a low point when the feed cut to Joe Biden just after he had been formally nominated.  He stood in a schoolhouse room next to some balloons.  He didn't quite know where to look and held a tense smile as, behind him, some streamers popped out and fell down from the acoustical tiles on the ceiling.  The visual was spectacularly awkward and profoundly ill-conceived.  Biden is trying to become a world-historical figure, a kingslayer who will become a king himself.  The scene made him look like a mid-level executive having a retirement party on Zoom, especially when it cut to dozens of people applauding.  Dozens of people?  Biden needs to get 70 million votes in November!  His weird mush-mouthiness made another appearance at the evening's close when he hugged his wife and referred to himself as "Jill Bliden's husband." Bliden, not Biden.

'Something is not right' says Obama's White House doctor about Biden, 'He's just lost'.  Dr. Ronny Jackson, the former White House physician to Presidents Obama and Trump is speaking out about his impression of Joe Biden's physical and mental fitness for office.  "The best way I can describe every time I see him is that he's just lost," Jackson said.  "I won't make any particular diagnosis about dementia ... but what I will say is that something is not right," continued the doctor, who just won a GOP congressional primary in Texas.  Asked whether he's comfortable with the idea of Biden assuming the top executive position in the country, Jackson said, "I'm not."

Here's Where The Biden-Harris Ticket Stands On Taxpayer Funded Abortions, Religious Freedom.  2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden promises to protect religious freedom in the United States, but both he and his running mate, Kamala Harris, advocated for policies that are contrary to the religious convictions of many Americans.  Biden's plan for "Safeguarding America's Faith-Based Communities" states that "America was built on a foundation of religious freedom and tolerance" and promises to provide increased security grants to religious communities, establish a faith based law enforcement program, strengthen prosecution of hate crimes, "take on the NRA and gun manufacturers," and more.  "We all have a right to practice our faith openly, or to practice no faith at all — a right that is being degraded under the Trump Administration's watch," the plan says.  Both Biden and Harris support tax payer funded abortions and pushed for Catholic nuns to pay for birth control against their religious beliefs.  Biden, often called a "devout" Catholic, has remained silent on attacks against Catholic churches over the summer.

The Editor says...
How "devout" is a Catholic who supports abortion at any stage of pregnancy?

The Biden-Harris Levitation.  After some reflection, it becomes clear that the extreme improbability of this process is the result of it not really being a race between two pairs of candidates for national office.  It is surely the last round in the great battle between Donald Trump and the national political media.  Trump's ostensible opponents, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, are a spavined political wheel-horse who came in fifth in the New Hampshire primary and a vice presidential nominee who flamed out ignominiously two months before the Iowa caucuses.  They are a matched pair of bombed-out losers; Biden was retrieved by the party elders in desperation that otherwise the Democratic candidate would be Marxist Senator Bernie Sanders.  They salvaged Biden and Biden salvaged Harris from the pre-primary ash heap.

Mike's Thoughts on Last Night's Beach Scene From "Lord of the Flies".  In somewhat of a shocker, the leftists did a video montage of the preamble to the Constitution, followed by the National Anthem.  I'm curious about two things:  how long it took the leftists to find the words, and how many kneeled.  Eva Longoria Bastion, soap opera actress of Desperate Housewives fame served as convention moderator.  After the intro, the moderator did a "check in" with various folks around the U.S. Interestingly, not one of them could point to anything of substance that is moving them to vote for Biden.

California's Blackouts Display The Results Of Kamala Harris's Favored Energy Policy.  Biden's past energy policies were fairly standard fare for old-school Democrats:  massive government spending and regulations to pick winners and losers — the $535 million Solyndra collapse is illustrative.  His current plan is more of the same, spending $2 trillion, some of which will go to buy the silent acceptance of Big Oil.

So was Joe Biden sneaking around on his first wife before the car crash?  Ordinarily, most of us wouldn't care too much about a political leader's love life.  After all, President Trump is a stellar president, but his personal life hasn't been perfect.  Big deal.  Trump's never brought it up to win votes out on the campaign trail.  Joe Biden's different.  He's using the occasion of the death of his previous wife, Neilia Hunter Biden, in a car crash along with that of his baby daughter to tell us how compassionate he is, in a bid to make political hay.  Michelle Obama, in her Democratic convention speech last night, brought it up, selling it to voters as proof that he's a nice guy. [...] But now an angry ex-husband has turned up to suggest that Biden's love and compassion for his then-wife was far from certain, given that he was likely sneaking around on her and well into a love affair with his own wife, Jill, when the crash happened[.]

Jill Biden's First Husband:  Here's The Real Story Of How Jill and Joe Met.  According to Jill Biden's first husband, Bill Stevenson, the story she and her present husband, prospective Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, tell of how they met after she divorced Stevenson is not true.  Stevenson claims Joe Biden was having an affair with his wife while she was still married to Stevenson. [...] Speaking to the Daily Mail in an exclusive interview from his home in Wilmington, Delaware, Stevenson stated, "I don't want to hurt anyone.  But facts are facts and what happened, happened."

Biden and Harris run away from the press and into the Democratic National Convention.  Biden's campaign strategy since locking down the nomination through waiting for the general election to begin in earnest has consisted largely of focus-group-tested Twitter spots and Zoom calls from his Wilmington basement.  That was a defensible enough strategy as the coronavirus blazed through the Acela corridor and before picking his running mate.  It's absolutely not on the eve of the Democratic National Convention.  It makes perfect sense that Biden would remain press-shy.  His entire winning strategy is contingent on keeping this election a referendum on President Trump, which repeated polling showing that the overwhelming majority of both Biden and Trump voters are motivated by their feelings toward the latter proves is currently the case.  And more importantly, the press will let Biden get away with this.

Joe Biden:  Nuns Inspired Me to Run for President... And I'm Going to Royally Screw Them If Elected.  Joe Biden is not Catholic.  We all know this; the man supports abortion rights.  You can't be Catholic.  Look, I was raised Catholic.  I haven't gone to church in years — and even I know Joey isn't really part of the flock.  You can see that from miles away.  It's also a tad disturbing that he's crediting nuns for inspiring him to run, but also saying he would royally screw them by taking away their freedom of conscience exemptions regarding birth control[.] [...] He's some Catholic, huh?  Biden is ready to take a tomahawk to the nuns if elected.  What a guy — and don't you dare criticize this move.  For some, like our senior columnist Marina Medvin, she was suspended by Twitter for seven days for slamming Biden over this move.  Actually, that's not accurate — she straight-up skewered him.  It was brutal, which is totally fine.  These are public officials — we can say what we want about them.  And for sure, the Left has said FAR worse about Donald Trump.  Now, she's not totally locked out, but she can't post or comment on anything.  Absolutely ridiculous.

Democratic convention — On first night this is what worked and what didn't.  The Democratic National Convention opened its first night Monday with an overarching theme of unity.  The night featured prominent speakers who represent the broad general election coalition that Joe Biden is looking to build:  progressives, centrist Democrats, independents, and moderate Republicans who have disaffected from Trump.  To be sure, Biden's polling lead is tightening, and by emphasizing big-tent inclusiveness, the Democrats are clearly hoping that the convention will jolt Biden's campaign.

Biden campaign not leasing a plane during the pandemic.  The coronavirus pandemic is grounding Joe Biden’s campaign.  The former vice president’s campaign team hasn’t booked any air travel, leaving no need to lease a plane to jet around the country for political rallies, Axios reported on Monday [8/17/2020].  With many swing states limiting the sizes of public gatherings, the Biden campaign is betting that adhering to health guidelines paves a path to the presidency.  It also allows Biden, who will accept the Democratic presidential nomination at a convention being held virtually, to contrast himself with President Trump, who will be flying on Air Force One for campaign hangar rallies in Wisconsin, Minnesota and Arizona this week.

The Editor says...
The pandemic, which is a convenient excuse for nearly everything, has nothing to do with Mr. Biden's travel plans.  Mr. Biden appears to be incapable of extemporaneously producing a coherent sentence, so he must be kept hidden away and shielded from the press.

Joe Biden doesn't have time for Chris Wallace but he did bang-up interview with rapper Cardi B.  "I have a whole list of things that I want our next president to do for us," Cardi B, whose real name is Belcalis Almánzar, said.  "But first, I just want Trump out.  His mouth gets us in trouble so much."

The Editor says...
When has President Trump's "mouth" been a problem to anyone but himself?

Michelle Obama's Gaslighting Speech Took Some Nerve, Attacking Trump With a Hot Mess of 'Going Low'.  I don't know about you, but [the Democratic National Convention] has got to be one of the most boring things that I've ever watched.  It's like packaged bland soap, it's so uninteresting.  "Joe Biden will do this and Joe Biden will do that, Joe Biden will make everything equal for everyone," we heard from a bunch of tired sounding politicians from Amy Klobuchar, to John Kasich, Doug Jones and Bernie Sanders.  Unlike everything he's done for the last forty years he's been in government.  Can anyone even name one consequential thing he's done?  The answer is he hasn't done anything except reveal how much he's been lacking.  Before the media had to really get behind him because he was their only shot, they used to have a more honest assessment of him when he was Obama's Vice President.  The gaffe ridden politician for decades, who had never gotten one foreign policy thing right in all his 40 years in politics.  Even Barack Obama didn't want him to run, according to reports.

Two Problems Emerging for Biden/Harris Ticket.  The second problem emerging for the Biden/Harris ticket is the person headlining the ticket.  The "hide Joe Biden in the basement" strategy is even beginning to wear thin with the mainstream media — Biden's biggest cheerleaders!  One of those media cheerleaders is Chris Cillizza, who wrote this for a piece titled, "It's long past time for Joe Biden to start taking questions from the press." [...] Yes, there is trouble in paradise, my friends, and the Democrats are in quite a pickle.  Do you put Biden out there and let the American people see that he is not capable of being president?  Or, do you put his Number Two out there and let her answer questions on her repeated flip-flops and policy disagreements with Biden?

Biden's loose lips will make it difficult to maintain national security and America's secrets.  Any political adviser who could tell a presidential candidate what a voter would be thinking when that person stands in a voting booth next November would be worth their weight in gold.  But no one can.  Most voters don't think about national security when they step into the voting booth.  They should, because one aspect of that issue is as clear an indicator as anyone can find of who can be trusted to perform the duties of the president.  One important part of a president's job is to maintain the confidentiality of America's secrets.  Some presidents disclose secrets for political gain.  Some try their best and still fail to keep the nation's secrets.  An untrustworthy few cavalierly expose America's secrets to anyone with an Internet connection.

Joe And Kamala's Fact-Mangling Debut.  The new Joe Biden and Kamala Harris Democratic ticket debuted in Delaware on Aug. 12, followed by the typically frantic partisan sugar-sculpting competition on cable "news."  But MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell took the saccharine prize by claiming that there was not a single false utterance in 35 minutes.  The energetic promoters of "independent fact-checkers" — who want "real-time" fact-checking of President Donald Trump — couldn't muster any effort to evaluate this thunderclap of leftist rhetoric echoing in a nearly empty high school gym.  Let's list a few fact-mangling whoppers. [...]

A Kamala-led Coup Would Succeed Against Biden.  This should never happen to another president again, this hoax," President Trump repeatedly says, referring to the Russia collusion hoax that very nearly destroyed his presidency.  It's unlikely that there are enough turncoats and Obama holdovers to mount another effort against a reelected President Trump.  But how vulnerable would a new President Biden be to such an effort?  Kamala Harris, former prosecutor of innocent people with different priorities and allies than Joe Biden, is uniquely positioned to lead a reprise of the same playbook used against President Trump.  Only this time, Joe Biden would be far more vulnerable to such an attack.

Biden's National Mask Mandate is Absurd and Despotic.  The new Biden-Harris ticket is off to a despotic start.  Biden, armed with his new running mate Kamala Harris, held a press briefing on Thursday in which he called for a nationwide mask mandate. [...] I'm not an anti-mask zealot. [...] If a mask can reduce the chances of transmission for a nurse or doctor, then the same mask, used properly, would do the same for a civilian.  This is logic, not epidemology.  Of course, officials from Anthony Fauci to the head of WHO to our surgeon general have long since lurched to the other extreme.  In March, masks for plebes were officially a bad idea.  Now, in August, the Democratic candidate for president is calling for a mandate for all Americans to wear them outside. This is absurd.

Donald Trump Mocks 'Zero Drive' Reporters Covering Joe Biden.  President Donald Trump ridiculed corporate media reporters on Saturday for allowing former Vice President Joe Biden to hold events without taking any questions.  "Very strange.  Sleepy Joe never takes questions," Trump wrote on Twitter.  The president shared a video of reporters politely exiting a Biden event with his running mate, Kamala Harris, after a press handler tells them to leave:  [Video clip]

Major US postal workers union endorses Biden for president.  The National Association of Letter Carriers, which represents 300,000 current and retired workers, said Thursday [8/13/2020] that [President] Trump has long been hostile to the Post Office.  His administration has called for an end to collective bargaining rights, proposed service cuts and has eyed the possibility of privatizing the functions of the agency.

Chris Wallace is Shocked the Biden Campaign Isn't Doing This Before the Convention.  [Chris] Wallace told [Guy] Benson that "Fox News Sunday" had assumed all week long that a top official from the Biden camp would make an appearance on the program.  But Wallace was shocked to learn that no one from the Biden campaign was willing to appear.  "And at first I thought, well, maybe it's because it's Fox News and they're boycotting us," Wallace said.  "No, they're not putting anybody out on any of the Sunday shows."  "I don't understand what's going on here," Wallace continued. [...] Wallace doesn't consider Biden's basement strategy a tenable option for the campaign with three months still left to go before the election.  "I don't think you can hide from now until Election Day.  I just, I just don't think it's possible," Wallace concluded.

The Real Problem with Joe's Dementia.  [Scroll down]  With today's technology, deep fake videos, and a COVID-inspired virtual presidency, perhaps the DNC is confident they can pull a fast one on the American people, run a shadow government with Joe as the face of the presidency, and cover up his infirmity and ineptitude with the aid of the press — think Woodrow Wilson and FDR.  Maybe they just hope to defeat Trump by any means necessary and plan to invoke the 25th Amendment elevating Kamala Harris to the presidency — someone who couldn't convince more than 2% of the primary voters to consider her for the nomination.  Or, they could be running Biden-Harris knowing they're unwinnable, but fully intending to contest the election, accuse Trump of stealing it, calling (again) for his impeachment/removal, and causing just enough bedlam to destroy his second term.  The Democrat-Media Complex has been explicit about taking Trump down by any means necessary so none of this is overblown or hyperbole.

Biden's Ukraine Problem Isn't Going Away.  As damaging news coverage of Hunter Biden's multimillion dollar gig with Burisma, the troubled Ukrainian energy company, escalated in the fall of 2019 and threatened to derail Joe Biden's third run for the presidency, the Biden campaign declared open season on journalists.  A Biden spokeswoman lashed out at the New York Times for publishing "malicious claims" about her boss and his son; the campaign warned social media companies not to run ads featuring the infamous clip of Biden bragging about trading U.S. foreign aid in exchange for the firing of a prosecutor investigating Burisma.  The fervor quickly died down after Democrats successfully changed the subject, building an impeachment case against President Trump that portrayed his brief mention of the Bidens during a phone call with the Ukrainian president as "election interference."  The gambit has worked so far.

Biden's Handlers Usher Reporters Away Like Cattle as He Tries to Answer Questions, Even CNN Notices.  Joe Biden has emerged twice from the confines of his basement this week:  1) to officially introduce Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) as his VP running mate on Wednesday, and 2) to hold a "virtual briefing" with supposed public health experts on the coronavirus Thursday, with Harris sitting 6 feet away from him at another table.  Both days, neither Biden nor Harris took questions from reporters.  Yesterday's event was especially illuminating — and not in a good way — for journalists who wanted to get a word in with the former veep and his choice for second in command.  As the virtual briefing reporters were invited to attend drew to a close, a few in the crowd began to ask questions.  In response, Biden blurted out a few words that didn't make much sense.  It was at that time you can see his handlers in the video below quickly usher reporters away from the stage as though they were cattle to be rounded up and herded behind a fence and away from the candidates.

Reporters AGAIN Herded Away From Biden as Questions Are Asked, Even Kamala Appears Tense.  Apparently there was a "signing ceremony" of sorts earlier today where presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden appeared alongside his vice presidential running mate Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) so they could sign documents "related to accepting the party's nomination at next week's Democratic National Convention."  According to the New York Post, the event was "tightly controlled" and lasted for a whopping total of two minutes.  As it turns out, calling it "tightly controlled" was a bit of an understatement.  After the staged event was over, you can see from the video below that — as they did yesterday — Biden's handlers quickly moved to shoo reporters out of the room as they tried to ask questions of both Biden and Harris.  Judging by the clip, it looks as though the journalists in attendance were all but literally shoved closely together behind some sort of curtain as the event concluded.  [Video clip]

Biden's Handlers Kick Reporters Out Of Press Briefing After They Start Asking Questions.  On Tuesday [8/11/2020], former Vice President and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and Senator Kamala Harris held a Coronavirus roundtable briefing.  The event had no curveballs considering Biden, as usual, struggled through the event and needed help from Harris to make it through.

Tensions linger between Biden and Obama camps throughout 2020 primary campaign: report.  Despite the best-friend bond Joe Biden touts with former President Obama, tensions have lingered between the two statesmen over their vastly different governing styles, according to a Politico report.  To start, a number of anonymously sourced quotes from Obama leaked out throughout the 2020 Biden campaign where the former president allegedly expressed doubts about his former running mates' fitness for office. [...] When lamenting his own diminishing relationship with the current Democratic electorate, particularly in Iowa, Obama reportedly told one 2020 candidate:  "And you know who really doesn't have it?  Joe Biden."  Some Biden aides pointed out that, when Obama's endorsement of Biden in 2020 finally did arrive, it didn't have nearly the energy of his endorsement of Hillary Clinton in 2016.

Joe Biden Tries to Take Credit for Trump Brokered Peace Deal as Rashida Tlaib Yells At Clouds.  Joe Biden's attempts to pretend every good thing that happens under the Trump administration is a result of the Obama administration have become fairly expected.  When it comes to the economy, we continually hear Trump isn't responsible for the booming growth experienced through much of his term.  But in relation to foreign policy, it's a bit jarring to see the former Vice President try to take credit for a peace deal the Obama administration had no hand in at all.  Yet, Biden tried to spin that narrative today.

Shaun King 2018: Can't vote for Joe Biden or Kamala Harris because they "helped build and advance mass incarceration".  That was then:  "I'll be frank and tell you two Democrats I'm 99% sure I won't be supporting... Joe Biden & Kamala Harris."  This is now:  I'm thrilled to support Biden-Harris.

What month is it?  Joe Biden's big mask mandate has been in place since March.  Democratic candidate Joe Biden has been stuck in his basement all these months and
