Can you imagine a scenario if Donald Trump was still President and Don Jr. “lost” a briefcase that contained a plethora of documents? These hard drives contained mountains of emails, pictures, videos, confidential information, and correspondence purposely kept secret. Imagine if a news organization was to get their hands on that briefcase and began releasing “select” bits of information to the public, some of which implicated President Trump himself in seedy relationships with seedy people. There was evidence of under-the-table transactions conducted by Don Jr. and his brother Eric. Though nowhere in the contained notes were direct references to Donald Trump, a nickname was used instead in the emails and instructions for disseminating proceeds from these transactions that could be nobody other than Trump the Elder. How would the world have responded to these revelations?
No reasonable person can dispute that the world, led by the State Media, would have crucified then President Trump and would not have impeached him twice: it would have taken only one impeachment and a removal trial in the Senate to find him Guilty!
Media helped hide the real Joe Biden by censoring Hunter stories: Miranda Devine
“The President’s plummeting popularity, especially among independents, reflects a growing realization among voters that Joe Biden is not the man they thought they had voted for. There’s a good reason for their disenchantment. They were denied the standard due diligence the media is supposed to conduct on presidential candidates.
It’s been more than a year since The New York Post published the first of a series of damning stories about then-candidate Biden, based on his son Hunter’s abandoned laptop. It’s been more than a year since Facebook and Twitter colluded with Democrat-friendly media to censor a story that reflected poorly on their preferred candidate less than three weeks before the 2020 election.
Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey blithely admitted after the election that locking The Post’s account for two weeks based on a non-existent “hacking” offense was a “mistake.” Facebook has never revealed the results of the “fact-check” it used as a pretext for blocking The Post. It likely never occurred because Facebook never contacted key recipients of emails we published from the laptop. But the damage was done. The coordinated censorship of America’s oldest newspaper — with more than 80 million readers online alone — amounted to election interference.
If the full story of the Bidens’ international influence-peddling scheme had been told before the election, polls indicate it may have affected the result. Almost 50 percent of Biden voters knew nothing about Hunter’s laptop scandal, according to polling conducted after the election by the Media Research Center, and nearly 10 percent said they would not have voted for Biden had they known. With fewer than 45,000 votes in three states deciding the outcome, it’s not unreasonable to suggest that suppression of The Post’s stories won Biden the election and denied voters the truth about his character.
This is the importance of Hunter Biden’s laptop and why it refuses to be shoved down the memory hole, where other inconvenient truths go to die. It provides a rare and detailed window onto the corruption that is Washington’s original sin, as conducted on a global scale by one of its most calculating practitioners.
The sordid secret vices of a son of political privilege are an incongruous backdrop to the monumental oil and gas deals Hunter was mixed up in around the world, a drug-addled neophyte bumbling through geopolitical minefields, with the Secret Service in tow. Hunter’s encounters with cutthroat oligarchs in Monte Carlo, Lake Como, Hong Kong, and Shanghai are documented in vivid detail on his laptop. It takes us from a billionaire’s beach villa in Acapulco to the desolate oil fields of Kazakhstan, from a judo competition in Budapest with Vladimir Putin to dinner in Beijing with Xi Jinping.
A Chinese tycoon cooks Hunter dinner in his new $50 million penthouse. A Ukrainian oligarch flies him to his fishing shack in Norway. Beautiful Russian escorts and thieving drug dealers float through his self-imposed exile on Sunset Boulevard amid slapstick scenes as crackhead Hunter comes unstuck and his hapless Uncle Jim Biden rides in to the rescue. Text messages chronicling the disintegration of Hunter’s love affair with his brother’s widow, Hallie Biden, are laced with flashbacks to the pain of a troubled childhood. Eye-popping financial windfalls are shaded by the grim fate of Chinese business partners who wind up missing, presumed dead. It’s a life of greed and luxury in a shadowy world of kleptocrat oligarchs whom law enforcement can’t touch.
Hunter was acutely aware of what he brought to the table: access to his powerful father despite his secret debaucheries. Sorry, but Hunter Biden’s profiteering matters — even if the rest of the press ignores it.
The Biden family business is documented in eye-popping detail in the 11-gigabyte trove. Over nine years from 2010 to 2019, the laptop shadows Joe’s life as the globe-trotting vice president of the Obama administration, the favor-trading senator from Delaware who would become the leader of the free world.
Over the past year, much of The Post’s reporting has been quietly accepted as accurate and even was admitted by Hunter in his 2021 addiction memoir. The White House confirmed our reporting when it admitted to a Washington Post fact-checker that then-VP Biden attended a dinner by Hunter’s business associates from Ukraine, Russia, and Kazakhstan on April 16, 2015, in a private room at Café Milano in Washington, D.C. Yes, Joe went to the dinner, the White House admitted, but only briefly, and not for any nefarious purpose, of course.
You would think reporters at organs such as USA Today and the Washington Post might be miffed about being lied to by Biden’s campaign, which categorically denied any such meeting had taken place.
“I’ve never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings,” candidate Biden snarled as if it were an affront to question his integrity. But few in the media showed any interest in holding him to account and ignored our reporting.
The killer blow came five days after The Post’s exposé, from 50 former senior intelligence officials led by former CIA Director John Brennan and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper. Using the institutional weight of their influential former roles, they published a letter in Politico that claimed the material on Hunter’s laptop “has all the classic earmarks of a Russian information operation.” However, not one of them had seen any of it. This was partisan propaganda designed to disparage The Post’s reporting and dissuade the rest of the media from looking deeper.
The Brennan letter was a lifeline to Joe Biden, three days before his final debate against a fired-up President Donald Trump. “Joe, they’re calling you a corrupt politician,” said Trump. “Take a look at the laptop from hell.”
Biden relied entirely on the Brennan letter to dismiss the laptop stories: “There are 50 former national intelligence folks who said that what he’s accusing me of is a Russian plan. They have said this is a bunch of garbage.”
But The Post’s reporting has held up. Corroborated from multiple angles, Hunter’s laptop tells an alarming story of the national interest sold out for personal gain at the highest level, particularly Communist China, America’s most significant strategic foe.
The conclusion is inescapable: The President cannot extricate his family’s moneymaking schemes from America’s foreign policy imperatives.”
The above is a synopsis of the book “Laptop From Hell” that hits newsstands this week. It is taken from an exhaustive forensic examination of Hunter Biden’s laptop he “forgot” to pick up from a Delaware computer repair shop where he left it. After repairing the laptop, the shop owner attempted multiple times to contact Hunter to arrange his picking it up. Biden never responded. Rather than throw it away, he booted it to see from its contents if there was some other way to contact its owner. He then saw the massive volume of emails, videos, pictures, and other documents that, in his terms, were “damning.” He contacted the FBI about the computer — not once but several times before they responded.
He copied the hard drive that he later said was “to protect him.” That, of course, was in response to his learning who was involved in the reams of data and information it contained. After all, the laptop owner was the son of the President of the United States. And that President was implicated throughout the data on that hard drive. He sent a couple of the cloned hard drives to others. One of those was his attorney. Another went to Rudy Giuliani.
The rest is history.
But here’s the sad part about it all. It should not HAVE been and should not STILL BE history: it should have initiated the most comprehensive investigation into the wrongdoing (and even criminality) of Joe Biden, Hunter Biden, Joe’s brother, and a host of other politicians and political bureaucrats from this country and numerous other countries!
But no such investigation has been opened. That in itself is sadly proof to all Americans that we do live in a two-tiered justice system.
There’s one system in which you and I are immersed with no other option. It’s expensive, slow-moving, not always fair, and full of people who may have good intentions but often are so overloaded with cases that their capabilities and subsequent desires to do their best for their clients get lost in the shuffle the maddening volume of caseload they face daily.
The second justice system is the one that Joe Biden, Barack Obama, former Attorneys General Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch, former FBI Director James Comey, CIA Director John Brennan, and others including James Clapper, Peter Strozk, and a plethora of other lifetime Department of Justice attorneys and political bureaucrats. All of these received blanket indemnification, not through some presidential pardons or exoneration in a court of law, but simply by being numbered among those endowed by their party affiliation and “enrollment” in the Deep State that gave them each a free pass.
Sadly, this is ALL true. And it shouldn’t be.
It’s somewhat funny that Donald Trump learned within weeks of his oath of office just how deep and muddy is Washington’s political Swamp. He knew just as quickly that it’s hard to find people in Washington that an honest man can trust — even those who have verbally committed their lives to his service. And he discovered the hard way just who are the “good guys” and who are the guys who wear “black hats.” And there are very few of the “good guys” remaining.
Our only hope is that Special Attorney John Durham has been given the resources and the permissions necessary to follow through with his investigation into the origins and the players in the Russia Collusion hoax. Everything I’ve read and heard tells me he’s a “good guy.” But many of the good guys have been buried with their white hats on their grave markers.
Will Hunter Biden escape the strong arm of the law for his very obvious lawbreaking exposed in great detail in the contents of that laptop? Will Joe Biden escape from forced accountability for his now-proven involvement in numerous schemes revealed in the laptop contents perpetrated by the Biden Family Syndicate? I doubt it. After all, former FBI Director James Comey, former Attorney General Eric Holder, and numerous other Democrats serving in Congress and Cabinet positions have left their posts unscathed by their roles in the Swamp.
Meanwhile, you and I sit here today wondering if we’ll have a job to feed our families, pay rent, pay a few doctors’ bills, and, hopefully, have enough left for groceries this week. We may need to tag-team with a neighbor to grocery shop because Joe’s price of gas keeps us from getting that tank-a-week we’ve been doing for a while.
Do you know what all this reminds me of? It reminds me of the stories I’ve read and heard from 20th Century European stories in which mega-rich Europeans maintained a billionaire lifestyle while daring their servants even to look them in the face. The chasm between the “boss” and the “servant” was so vast there was NO hope of that gap ever being breached. Unless one was born into such a family, that person was relegated to a life of serfdom with absolutely no way out of it — EVER!
And just who in our lives today plays the roles I just described? The “mega-rich European billionaires” are the filthy rich, members of the State Media, our elected government leaders who happen to wear the Democrat costume, and the Leftist bureaucrats who serve to run the “machinery” of this merry-go-round.
My last thought regarding all this is: I want to keep fighting. But will those keeping score ever let the fighters determine who wins the fight? Or are they going to continue to be allowed to “fix” each fight like they always have, giving “their” pick the nod no matter the actual outcome?
Right now, to get that answer, the only thing I can do is flip a coin. It’s 50-50.
