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. (snip) suppressing Huntergate perhaps provided a secondary benefit: The information could be used against Biden once he was in office. (snip) not only could suppressing Huntergate get Biden in office, but then maybe it’s, “Nice presidency you’ve got there, Mr. Biden — I’d hate to see anything happen to it.” Since the criminality in question could, apparently, put Hunter in prison along with destroying China Joe, the leverage is profound.

If Trump does nothing else in his second term , firing Wray and cleaning out the rest of the FBI would be a great service.

The FBI does not lie when it says it does not play partisan politics. They are willing to plot against anybody to bring them down. In Joe's case it would be easy. Agree with #1.

The new reveal of Hunter Biden and underage Chinese girls if true shows Hunter Biden to be the most stupid person on this planet. First to take a laptop with such information and video's on it to be repaired by someone not in the clique,and second to leave it there. Next it reveals a Chinese plan to set up Hunter Biden in a honey trap. A National Security plot that should have gone to the CIA. But it also places Rudy in a bad light that he held this up to interfere with an election instead of displaying it earlier before the democrats had a chance to recover from it. Now I am a Trump man, but this whole deal is not Kosher IMO.Politics is a truly dirty business.

So kicking Biden out of office and getting a socialist to replace him in Harris, was seen as a win by the FBI? How about releasing the evidence so that Biden doesn't get elected. That's a win for the country, and taxpayers, but I guess the uppity ups in the FBI hate Trump more and are more interested in keeping their power.

I was OK with this Article until I came to: "As for following the law, though, my read on Trump is that he’s as punctilious about that as he is about germs (he’s a famed germaphobe)." I had to look up "punctilious." Defined as: "adj. Strictly attentive to minute details of form in action or conduct. synonym: meticulous. adj. Precise; scrupulous. Attentive to punctilios; very nice or precise in behavior, ceremony, or intercourse**; exact (sometimes, to excess) in the observance of rules or forms prescribed by law or custom." ** I must assume that's not referring to sexual intercourse. I've never thought that Donald Trump is punctilios (except, perhaps, exact in the observance of rules or forms prescribed by law. And I've NEVER heard that he's a germaphobe. Besides, what the heck does that (out of place) tidbit have to do with this Article?!

This is something that I hadn't considered, but it very likely what is the real reason that they sat on the laptop. If Biden wins.....the FBI can avoid any further investigations by using it to blackmail Biden to not only not continue the investigations into FBI crimes, but to give them a free hand to do whatever they want.

Blackmail by the FBI? Nooooo. There are all these honest, hard working agents that would put a stop to that. Now, why couldn't that "material" be used later to create a drumbeat for resignation, if not impeachment? Nothing says the "bribery, high crimes or misdemeanors" need be committed during the President's term of office. That Watergate era was so innocent by comparison.

Leverage is the word of the day. If you have sufficient leverage, you can move mountains. People gain leverage through wealth, connections and information. Even a poor, unconnected man can exert tremendous leverage with information. He can gain access if he has information that someone wants and he can control a person if he has information that someone wants buried. Extortion and blackmail is leverage. Its why politicians suddenly do 180's, judges make surprising rulings, it explains why some people are elevated beyond their own capabilities and why others are brought down.

If Trump didn't already have enough reason to fire Wray, then the FBI keeping he information on this laptop from the American people should be the final straw. As far as #4's attempted hit on Guliani, I've read no where that Guliani held any information regarding this laptop and that when he was informed about it he brought it public.

Re: #1 - Why wait until a second term to fire Wray and many other progressives in his administration? Is there not a distinct possibility that his failure to do so as the current president may contribute to his being denied a second term?

President Trump may want to replace “YMCA” as the closing song for his rallies with Bachman Turner Overdrive’s “You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet.” 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.

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.

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 (snip) A hilarious Twitter video has survived the “fact checkers” at the social media giant (for now)

Facebook and Twitter sacrificed the final shreds of their integrity to try to censor the N.Y. Post article revealing the existence of Hunter Biden's laptop. But in their rush to throw themselves in the path of the bullet to save Joe, there was a big problem. They forgot that Rudy Giuliani has the evidence. The N.Y. Post article was an exclusive. That means all "fact checkers" that Facebook and Twitter will unleash to fact-check the article will be based on speculation, not fact. Because they don't have the laptop. And, judging from a new video from Giuliani, things may be about to explode

There are a lot of substantive comments to make about the two town halls. Trump held up well even though Savannah Guthrie was attacking him like a maddened chihuahua. Biden also held up well thanks to George Stephanopoulos's gentle handling and an increasing number of very long commercial breaks. (And was Biden fed the questions in advance? He seemed unusually prepared.) But the real star had to be the woman in the red mask sitting behind Trump.

(snip) He likely concluded that his lie was going to be exposed and may have feared legal consequences if an FBI investigation came to that conclusion. It was the Commission on Presidential Debates that made the request to the FBI for an investigation, so it is not clear to me if Scully has any legal liability for filing a false report.

Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden’s proposed gun control policy includes a provision that could require every AR-15 rifle be registered under the National Firearms Act of 1934. Unless there were some form of carve-out, this could mandate that American gun owners pay a $200 federal tax per AR-15 that they own. The National Rifle Association’s Andrew Arulanandam told Breitbart News that the current “low end” estimate of privately-owned AR-15s in the United States is 18 million. A tax of $200 on 18 million AR-15s means that gun owners could potentially be required to a pay a collective $3.6 billion in taxes,
