The Hunter Biden Corruption Scandal
Is a Reckoning for the Legacy Media

Original Article

Posted By: Pluperfect, 10/24/2020 4:38:30 AM

New revelations from Hunter Biden’s laptop and his former business partner, Tony Bobulinski, have implicated former Vice President Joe Biden in his son’s notorious business deals in Ukraine, China, and elsewhere. More evidence for the evolving story is emerging, day by day. Yet the very same media outlets that ran with the “salacious and unverified” Steele dossier recounting outlandish claims about President Donald Trump and Russia have refused to cover this very real scandal, despite its clear implications in the two weeks before the 2020 election. While the scandal is particularly damning for Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr., who has yet to give a detailed response to the allegations,

It's been 5 years since I watched MSM, looks like made the right decision not to waste time with illogical freaks abusing the free press and acting as super-pacs. When you catch a liar, both by commission and omission, stay away and more importantly if they tell you it's raining outside take a gander yourself.

What this proves is something we already know, that the media is a propaganda organization for the dems. Like so many other stories, they decide on the narrative and then ALL push it. There is ZERO evidence this is Russian disinformation. "Russia, Russia, Russia" is the media's boogeyman, which is completely absurd because it has been discredited so thoroughly. Yet they persist because they have nothing else. On the other hand, it is FACT that this IS Hunter's laptop and that it has been in possession of the repair shop for a while. It is FACT that some of the more damning emails are verified by the recipients as true exchanges. It is FACT that the "big guy" IS Joe Biden. It is FACT that Biden DID discuss Hunter's business dealings with his son. It is FACT that the "big guy" was getting cuts of the payments being made for influence. It is FACT that the FBI has possession of the machine and has determined it is NOT a Russian plant. The media's narrative has NO factual support. The TRUTH is that there are many FACTS that show it is NOT Russian disinformation attempt and is instead a REAL record of Hunter and Joe's corrupt and illegal interactions with foreign agents and receiving payoffs. Yes, the Russians are running some pathetic ads and such that almost no one sees and few pay ANY attention to. They shouldn't be doing that but their efforts are feeble and ineffective. The dems lies about Russians have far more impact than the Russian efforts. It's hard to see how media credibility can crater any further but they are sure working hard to make that happen. Further, they are convincing no one except Leftist fanatics. When a propaganda organization loses its power to persuade and is widely discredited, what value does it have? It's a dunsel, a part that serves no useful purpose.

To find a more biased, state-directed media, I believe we would have to go back in history to 1930'-1940's Germany. The length and breadth of the news coverage, or lack of it. or distortion of it, is breath-taking in its sheer audacity. History will record the gross malfeasance of the MSM in the Trump era as the beginning of the end of our Constitutional Republic.

The media and Democrats (Oops, same thing!) are aching for a diversion. Look for Hunter to attempt or commit suicide - either voluntarily or involuntarily. Then, they can spend 24/7 blaming the Trump persecution based on 'debunked' allegations and stoke sympathy for Biden while running out the clock to the finish line.

The msm is dead. No trust. No credibility. No common sense. But, plenty of hate toward a President. That they can do and so can the dims. The msm did this all by itself. All because Billary refused to take any responsibility for her losing the 2016 presidential election and the left's little snit having raged on for four years now. I can't even guess when is the last time I tuned into an msm news program. Thinking it must have been 9/11 when I was stranded in India trying to get home.

I believe they are hidden is foreign bank accounts (under advice from people who really know all the tricks. On the other hand, Crissy "little dweeb" Wallace said they do not exist. Why?

Thankfully, we have internet sources that can go around the media! Rudy Giuliani (the prosecutor) does a masterful job of presenting a clear and concise bribery and corruption case to the jury (the American voters). The video is in an article titled “How Biden got millions in foreign bribes" that is posted on Gateway today.

Joe said he has 'not taken one penny from a foreign government.' Instead, he has Hunter or an LLC take millions, launder it through various entities so that there is no direct connection, before he gets the money. The FBI had evidence of this on Hunter's laptop since December of last year, but sat on it. Even after this was made public the FBI has still done nothing about it. There needs to be a major house cleaning of the FBI.

Yes, the msm is dead, and deep down they know it. I think they know lots of things deep down that they are frightened to acknowledge. They are frightened of one another, frightened to incur the wrath of the whole pack, so they keep going along with lies, travesties, treasons. They know the Bidens are a crime family. They know Pelosi is a an ego out of control. I see the msm as a huddled, scared mass, clutching one another and terrified of one another. If one brave soul detached and stepped forward and reported honestly it might change everything-- or, more likely, their fears would prove true and that actual journalist would be savaged. I saw glimpses of what I'm describing-- a desire for honesty buried under fear-- when Wolf Blitzer interviewed Pelosi about the stimulus money. He knows-- like all of the msm-- that millions of Americans are in dire straits, and really need financial help. Pelosi's selfish cruelty is worthy of the 18th C French aristocracy. He circled around *truth* and Pelosi went nuts! The few strands of integrity in his sold-out body were screaming to say to her, "Release the funds! Americans are hurting! Stop your petty, ego-driven vendetta against Trump!" But he chickened out. At a certain point you could see his manhood collapse. She sent him packing, tail between his legs.

Facebook and Twitter contributed to the Democrat Socialists by making the Laptop from Hell invisible. They regulate publishing. They should join the Google lawsuit, and be stripped of Section 230 protection. The FBI had Hunter’s laptop since December and let ourPresident Trump be impeached over Ukraine.

FTA: If what Simon speculates is true, then it’s no leap to reckon that Hunter Biden might have warned his father or Democrat operatives about the laptop, setting in motion a stepped-up effort to cajole Americans into voting before the news was broken. Different take... The Dems might have been notified by the same 'friendly' FBI dudes who had been sitting on the evidence since Dec 2019. Yeah?

A reckoning for the Marxist media? No. It's a reckoning only IF a majority of voters pull their heads out and find out on their own that Marxists are lying to them and have been for decades. Until then, it's been an unfair reckoning on innocent people. Just ask Trump, Flynn, Carter, Papadopoulos, and the Constitution.

Until they can produce even one smidgen of actual evidence of its veracity, every news agency, talking head, and politician that repeats the "Russian disinformation" mantra is actually guilty of perpetrating their own unfounded smear campaign. REPEAT: there is zero evidence that Hunter's laptop and its revelations are part of a Russian disinformation campaign. It's time for DJT to start suing these bozos, including JoKe Buythem for such libel and slander.

You can think long and hard about who might have been a better candidate for the Democrats, but as bad as Biden is, and as badly as he got beaten in Thursday’s debate, you’ll come up empty. Biden was their only chance. Joe Biden’s installation by the Democrat establishment places into stark relief the absolute glut of losers currently parading the Democrat Socialists into electoral perdition. Now, with the Biden corruption meter falling hard into the danger zone, it must be asked: What did the Democrat strategists who foisted this fading senior citizen into the top slot know and when did they know it?

Trump ordered the removal of Sudan from the State Department list of terror sponsors after the new government adopted US requirements, and ponied up over $300 million in a fund for terror victims. In return for that consideration, Sudan agreed to work with Israel on normalized ties as part of the Abraham Accord process, although it’s not immediately clear just how far those negotiations have already gone:

The Russians haven’t loomed so large as a sinister hand influencing the course of American society since the Red Scares of the 20th century. Then, it was largely the Right that warned of Russian infiltration; now it is progressives who see Russians altering the course of American history through dark manipulations. There’s no doubt that Russia meddled in our election in 2016 and is attempting to do so again. But the Left’s overwhelming focus on Russia has taken on the trappings of a conspiracy theory with a comforting monocausal explanation for everything: Russia did it.

Democratic nominee Joe Biden holds a slight lead in Texas over President Donald Trump among likely voters in Texas, according to a poll released Sunday by the Dallas Morning News and the University of Texas at Tyler. The poll showed Biden with the support of 48 percent of likely voters, compared with 45 percent for Trump. The results represent a shift from the same poll in September, when Trump led by 2 percentage points. One difference from September is that Biden has expanded his lead among Hispanic voters from 30 percentage points to 48.

If the election were held today, Joe Biden would probably win. But there are strong signs that the race is much, much closer than you’d think from the news coverage. Donald Trump has a real shot at being reelected. First, the president is actually more popular now than on the day he was elected. Yes, that’s right. His personal favorability rating around election day in 2016 was 37.5%. Now, it is 43.2%. There are, in fact, hundreds of thousands of Americans (if not millions) who have grown fonder of Trump. We all know it’s not about the popular vote so let’s disregard nationwide polls that have Biden ahead by double digits.

It had already been a wild game before one of the wildest culminations to a World Series game in living memory came along. Here's a look at the final play:
