Original Article

Peter Schweizer, president of the Government Accountability Institute (GAI), said on Monday that his organization had confirmed that President Joe Biden “was a direct beneficiary” of Hunter Biden’s financial deals with foreign interests. “We do have a copy, by the way, here at GAI of [Hunter Biden’s] laptop and all the files,” Schweizer said on the Sean Hannity Show. “It confirms that Joe Biden was a direct beneficiary.” LISTEN (interview begins at 1:05:05): Schweizer explained how GAI cross-referenced Secret Service travel logs during Joe Biden’s tenure as vice president to corroborate the authenticity of Hunter Biden’s emails. He remarked: GAI asked, “How can we demonstrate whether the emails are real?” …

The Biden Crime Family is immune to FBI, CIA, etc....since they are totally corrupt leftists. They spent years fabricating lies about Trump doing 'wrong', and yet will NEVER look into the massive, obvious, easily proven corruption of the leftists like Traitor Joe. FBI = KGB

I’m pretty sure Biden will resign for “health” reason once the GOP takes over the House so he can avoid impeachment.

Schweizer provided the details of the corruption of the entire Biden crime family in his last book, along with the socialist life of theft of Bernie Sanders and the crooked law practice of Kamala Harris. Democrats do not care and Republicans are too cowardly to speak up.

For you conservatives who have copies of the laptop, when are you going to publish the child porn and other felonious Hunter activities on the hard drive so that a possible rendezvous with justice is around the corner for him.

I am so weary of this kind of story. It’s always the same. They tell us we have evidence of wrong doing right here in our hands and nothing ever comes of it. Look at the 2020 election. If that doesn’t convince you that democrats should be hauled off to the pokey for stealing an election, what would? We had a video of ballots in suitcases being pulled out from under a table and then being put through a tabulator several times and NO ONE has been arrested for that. Not one person. In fact, the authorities don’t seem to be interested at all in the incident. What kind of justice is that? What about the hours of video tape we have of Antifa and BLM rioting, looting and creating dangerous mayhem and no one is held accountable. I am so tired of the blatant lawlessness. I hate to sound so negative but realistically, can anyone deny that justice is one sided in this country? Look at the political prisoners held in jail in Washington after the January 6th rally. The FBI hunted them down like criminals on the most wanted list while Antifa and BLM were released. Americans are sick and tired of watching the bad guys get away with their crimes while Patriots are held without bail for the same or even lesser crimes. How is this justice? As you can tell, I am fed up with the injustice running rampant in this country. Our government is corrupt and cannot be counted on to uphold the law. Everything is politically motivated and if you are a conservative, the joke’s on you. You will be canceled, fired, harassed, or jailed if you get out of line. However, a perverted, debauched, corrupt, degenerate son of Biden walks free and is openly setting up another scam. What individual decides to become an “artist” and his work sells for six figures the first time out? Interesting that the buyers names are being kept secret which tells anyone with two brain cells to rub together that this is nothing more than another pay to play con just like the ones that have worked so well for the family in the past. Equal justice for all you say? Right…prove it.

As Rush Limbaugh often said "follow the money" The propaganda media will NEVER do any real investigative reporting on this. Count on it. Not in your lifetime. They must prop up JoeBama O'Biden as their puppet to destroy the nations until it economically fails. Peter Schweizer has been doing this kind of expose` for years but it never gets much traction as it should.

As I posted on a similar thread last week, letting this dribble out is a good thing. If it were all dumped at once, it would be out of the news cycle in 48 hours. By leaking it slowly, it keeps popping back up in the news and it gets worse every time. Remember that the enemedia ignored the Lewinski affair until the blue dress showed up and they were forced to cover the story. At some point that will happen with Humper - probably when the child porn comes out or when the demonrats decide that it’s time to get rid of Joe. As to equal justice - forget it. Back when Clinton was acquitted of perjury, witness tampering and suborning perjury I suggested that the words “Equal Justice Under Law” be sand-blasted off the face of the Supreme Court building.

Hunter was profiting from his dad's name and making sure to give dad his cut. At least that's the picture that seems to be emerging from this. Or is that just the shape eventually chosen for this narrative? Hard to tell with all the spin and counter-spin that permeates reporting today.

How long until justice? Will it wait until the next Republican President's AG is sworn in? Under federal statute 18 USC 3282, individuals are protected from prosecution for any noncapital offense in which an indictment is not found within five years of the criminal act. So no. Nope. Dems skate again. Change that statute. I bet before Biden leaves office one of his flying monkeys will change it so in order for the next Republican President and his appointees to be harassed unmercifully with a lifelong statute of limitations.

It won't matter whether Sleepy Joe was the beneficiary of Hunter's shady dealings. It won't matter one bit. The shady deals could be reported on in the NYT, broadcast live on CNN, and discussed openly in the U.S. House of Representatives and NOTHING WOULD HAPPEN. The powers that be got rid of "Trump" and that's all that matters -- well that and the fervent march to communism.

Rudy's strategy was to time the release of Hunter's hard drive in bits. How did that work out for him? There's no need to have this dribbled out over 10 or 20 years. Release all of Hunter's files online. As bad as it is, let the whole world see the raw debauchery, corruption and criminality of Biden and his family. Do this before he totally destroys our country.

The legitimate answer to Biden’s obvious public corruption is for the wimpy Republicans to become the majority in the House of Representatives and then institute impeachment proceedings against Biden and present the incriminating evidence for everyone to see. I’m sure that the so-called main stream (liberal) media will televise those proceedings just as they did with the two Trump impeachment fiascos.

Considering the files on Hunter Biden's laptop are "Smoking Gun" proof of political corruption by Joe Biden while he was Vice-President, I would be all for impeaching him, except for one thing. If he is impeached and removed from office, he would be replace by Kamala Harris. I don't know who is worse -- Joe or Kamala. But, I tend to believe she would be a bigger disaster than Joe.

Three Democratic members of the Texas House of Representatives have tested positive for the coronavirus, according to the Texas House Democratic Caucus. The three lawmakers are among House Democrats who fled to Washington, D.C., earlier this week to stave off GOP priority voting bills during the special legislative session. The three members who tested positive all have been fully vaccinated, which helps protect against severe illness. On Friday night, one member tested positive for the coronavirus and immediately alerted colleagues, who, in addition to staff members, took rapid tests. On Saturday morning, two additional members tested positive after taking rapid tests. The cases were first reported by the Austin American-Statesman.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki started a hullabaloo yesterday by admitting that they had been in “frequent contact” with Facebook to “flag misinformation” to get Facebook to take down information about the Wuhan coronavirus that they considered “misinformation” and to ban users. Today, she doubled down on that and said that people banned on one platform should be banned on all platforms, an especially troubling thing to say when the government is in constant contact with social media to flag and ban people. Then Joe Biden made an insane comment on his way to his helicopter at the the White House that Facebook was “killing people.”

There were nearly 190,000 migrant encounters at the southern border in June, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced Friday — yet another rise in what were already sky-high border numbers, and bringing the total of encounters in fiscal year (FY) 2021 to more than 1 million. CBP said that 188,829 migrants were encountered at the southern border, an increase from the 180,034 encountered in May. It is also a sharp rise since when President Biden took office — there were 78,442 encounters in January.

A federal judge issued an injunction on Friday ordering the Biden administration to cease accepting applications to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. The program, initially established in 2012 under the Obama administration, allows illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. as children to defer deportation for two years and to renew the deferral, as well as to receive work permits. DACA recipients are not granted a path to citizenship. The Department of Homeland Security “violated the [Administrative Procedure Act] with the creation of DACA and its continued operation,” Judge Andrew Hanen of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas wrote in a ruling on Friday.

Joe “Grandpa Disaster” Biden was at it again today during his briefing with German Chancellor Angela Merkel at the White House today. Biden definitely seemed to be having a hard time with basic coherence. In his homage to her years of service, he mistakenly called her the “second largest” but then corrected that to the “second longest” serving chancellor. Largest and longest are both good words, but hardly interchangeable and certainly not the best word to use here when referring to Merkel. He then said that they needed to “upend” their “global climate ambitions.”

Usually when a migrant is picked up at the border and makes a claim of asylum, the border patrol processes those claims and gives the migrants a “notice to appear” in a specific court at a specific time. But back in April the Associated Press reported that because of the big surge of migrants at the border, many were being released into the interior of the country with just an instruction which told them to report to an ICE facility within 60 days for processing: The Border Patrol began the unusual practice last week in Texas’ Rio Grande Valley, which has seen the biggest increase

The Washington Post reports, with obvious dismay, that American Airlines, Cigna, Aflak, and other corporations are once again making campaign contributions to legislators who opposed certifying Joe Biden’s victory in the 2020 election. The corporations in question stopped contributing to these members after the events of January 6 this year. However, with the possible exception of Cigna, they didn’t say they would never again contribute to any of them. The companies merely paused their contributions. Thus, the subtitle of the Post’s article — “The flow of money is a sign that corporate America’s promises were temporary” — is nonsensical. The “promises” were “temporary” on their face.

During a Thursday press conference, Psaki said White House senior staff were engaging with “social media platforms” to combat the spread of “misinformation specifically on the pandemic.” “In terms of actions we are taking or that we’re working to take, I should say, from the federal government, we’ve increased disinformation research and tracking within the surgeon general’s office.

Milley said he feared a military coup from Trump, who had decided to contest the results of the 2020 election. Trump responded to the accusation in a blistering statement on Thursday. “Despite massive Voter Fraud and Irregularities during the 2020 Presidential Election Scam, that we are now seeing play out in very big and important States, I never threatened, or spoke about, to anyone, a coup of our Government.

WASHINGTON — Two weeks after celebrating America’s near “independence” from the coronavirus, President Joe Biden is confronting the worrying reality of rising cases and deaths — and the limitations of his ability to combat the persistent vaccine hesitance responsible for the summer backslide. Cases of COVID-19 have tripled over the past three weeks, and hospitalizations and deaths are rising among unvaccinated people. While the rates are still sharply down from their January highs, officials are concerned by the reversing trendlines and what they consider needless illness and death. And cases are expected to continue to rise in coming weeks.

ROME — Pope Francis cracked down Friday on the spread of the old Latin Mass, reversing one of Pope Benedict XVI’s signature decisions in a major challenge to traditionalist Catholics who immediately decried it as an attack on the ancient liturgy. Francis reimposed restrictions on celebrating the Latin Mass that Benedict relaxed in 2007. The pontiff said he was taking action because Benedict’s reform had become a source of division in the church and been used as a tool by Catholics opposed to the Second Vatican Council, the 1960s meetings that modernized the liturgy. Francis issued a new law requiring individual bishops to approve celebrations of the old Mass

The board member, former Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning Schmidt, said “free speech is not an absolute human right.” “It has to be balanced with other human rights,” she said Thursday at a Politico Europe event.

(snip) Dem (324) Republican (235) Independent (260) Ninety-nine more Democrats sampled vs. Republicans were included in the results. It is not hard to get the results you want if the polls are assembled in this way, and this is always the method with these polls. A total of 819 from 1,500 participants.

Officials in Australia are rebranding shark “attacks” as “a negative encounter” as experts argue the former had given the nautical predators a bad reputation not based on science. At least two of the six Australian states have reportedly changed the way they officially describe shark attacks. In New South Wales, the government’s shark reports now refer to shark “incidents” or “interactions,” and in Queensland, the state government refers to them as “a negative encounter,” Sky News reported.(Snip)Proponents argue the word “attack” has created a culture of fear around sharks, one often depicted in movies. “Sharks are very curious animals,” Leonardo Guida, a shark biologist

The White House is courting intense criticism again Friday after press secretary Jen Psaki said that once users are banned from one social media platform for spreading coronavirus "misinformation," they should be expelled from all others as well.
