Report: Hunter Biden Sought Millions To Help Unfreeze Libyan Assets While His Father Was Vice President

Recently, Politico finally conceded that the emails on the Hunter Biden laptop are indeed authentic. The story went largely without mention by others in the mainstream media where the laptop has been subject to an effective blackout since before the election when stories were actually banned by Twitter. Before the election, Politico and every major newspaper ran stories that the laptop and the embarrassing emails were likely Russian disinformation according to over 50 “former intelligence experts” including former CIA directors John Brennan, Leon Panetta, and Gen. Michael Hayden. Despite the clear evidence that the emails are real, the media has steadfastly refused to address the raw and open influence peddling by the Biden family in those emails. That now includes new emails showing an alleged effort by Hunter Biden to shake down the Libyan government for $2 million a year in order to use his access to his father to unfreeze assets held by the U.S. government.

We recently discussed emails showing that Hunter Biden admitted that one of his laptops was stolen by Russians and was likely being used for blackmail purposes.  The fact that the President’s son admitted that Russians may have intentionally seized one of his laptops during a drug binge to blackmail him was not considered news by the media.

Moreover, while some begrudgingly admit that the laptop is probably authentic, the media is not dealing with the extensive emails detailing an influence peddling scheme by Hunter, President Biden’s brother and others. There is also no interest in going back to those over 50 intelligence officials (who are still widely cited in stories) to address the fact that they made such an erroneous claim of Russian disinformation right before an election.

The most recent disclosures is par for the course.

Business Insider reported that Biden sought an annual $2 million retainer to aid in the recovery of Libyan assets frozen by the administration of President Barack Obama and his father. What is interesting is that The Insider report is not based on the same hard drive as the other emails. Instead, the site is publishing two emails from January 28, 2015, from Democratic donor Sam Jauhari to Sheikh Mohammed al-Rahbani, an Obama donor.

Jauhari writes “Per phone conversation I met with #2 son, he wants $2 per year retainer… his dad is deciding to run or not.”  He then forwards Hunters bona fides for the millions in retainers including being the chairman of the UN World Food Program and being a business partner of “SOS J. Forbes K.’s son”. The reference is to John Forbes Kerry and his son-in-law Christopher Heinz who has repeatedly been mentioned in these influence peddling schemes.

In this case, the emails suggest that Hunter was trying to shake down Libyans for access to the $15 billion in assets during Muammar Gaddafi’s rule. The paper quotes the emails as stating “Since he travels with dad he is connected everywhere in Europe and Asia where M.Q. [Gaddafi, also spelled Qaddafi] and LIA [Libya Investment Authority] had money frozen. He said he has access to highest level in PRC [China], he can help there.”

As in past stories, there is no denial from Hunter Biden or the White House. There is no need to do so since few in the media are asking for answers. As with the various influence peddling schemes detailed on the laptop worth millions, this is only a scandal if the media reports it. It is therefore not a scandal by general consensus in Washington.

  1. An offer that Gaddafi should not have refused. Our ambassador and other Americans, and Libyans were collateral damage that were overlooked in Obama’s Iraq War 2.0 (from Tripoli to Kiev).

  2. Don’t forget the other 26,000 emails Hunter’s former partner Bevan Cooney turned over. He is now in prison. Toni Bobulinski turned over his emails and texts as well. There is that plus Hunter’s other business partner Devon Archer is facing possible prison for fraud.

    What is worse is how many in the press and the media committed malpractice by suppressing this story. I wonder how it feels to be a reporter with breaking news and the boss informs you to kill the story. How could the public ever trust them again. Just report the facts and let your readers and viewers make up their own minds.

    “Fool me once.”

      1. Maybe in hell where they will reside as permanent residents all in good time. Otherwise they deserve all the slander coming their way.

  3. ARIZONA ELECTION REVIEW:

    BLOG STOOGE SEIZED BY HISSY FIT

    A squad of angry puppets posted Friday evening. Familiar names by now who parrot talking points. Different handles, same written voice. A nerdy creep demanding attention. Fancies himself as deviously hilarious!

    ‘No one knows he’s the puppet master’. Because his writing is so brilliant! This he imagines posting almost frantically. Trying to escape the yoke of his being. A loveless marriage to woman weighing 300.

    This nerdy creep speaks through angry puppets that sound like eerie bots!
    Voices one hears on the verge of a nervous breakdown.

    These voices are the stooge of Johnathan Turley’s blog. The stooge is having a hissy fit because Donald Trump was punked.

  4. 90% of the MSM and Big Tech censored the Hunter Biden email information—-that is election interference and collusion with Biden and the Democratic Party. The MSM, Big Tech, and Democrats are out of control. The money laundering and influence peddling that the Bidens perpetrated is shocking in its own right. They must be criminally prosecuted and Biden must be impeached. But the scary dangerous underlying issue is the way the media and Big Tech are effectively part of the Democratic Party. The U.S. is an authoritarian state. One party holds all the power and controls the flow of information.

  5. If Kamala Harris ever becomes president by default, the great people of the United States will oust her lame, pathetic, unqualified, incompetent a$$ in short order.

    Kamala is despised by most of the country (for good reason). Good luck, Kammy. Can’t s$ck your way to the top now, can ya?

    1. Media coverage does not prove or disprove something. Whether they report it has nothing to do with it being a crime. This is criminal activity you are accusinghim of. You can make your claim on the internet, but will you be able to prove it in a court of law? Unless or until you do, you’re just spreading propaganda.

      1. Seriously? The singular American failure has been and continues to be the judicial branch, with emphasis on the Supreme Court, which is totally corrupt. Start here: The entire American welfare state is unconstitutional. For those of you in Rio Linda, that means it is illegal and may not exist by law. Article 1, Section 8, provides Congress the power to tax ONLY for “…general Welfare…,” omitting and, thereby, excluding any power to tax for individual welfare, specific welfare, redistribution of wealth or charity, and the same Article denies Congress any power to regulate anything other than money, commerce and land and naval Forces, as the 5th Amendment right to private property precludes Congress from any power to “claim or exercise dominion” over or possess or dispose of private property. Not only are your so-called Social Security and Medicare unconstitutional but generational welfare, food stamps, minimum wage, rent control, WIC, SNAP, TANF, HAMP, HARP, HUD, HHS, Dept.’s Education, Agriculture, Energy, Labor, quotas, affirmative action, forced busing, social services, “Fair Housing” laws, “Non-Discrimination” laws, etc., etc., etc. are too.

        Starting with the totality of the wholly unconstitutional “Reign of Terror” of “Crazy Abe” Lincoln, the courts and Supreme Court should have immediately struck down every act that voided the “manifest tenor” of the Constitution, the preponderance of which America was overwhelmed and conquered by.

        The courts of law ARE the problem, brainiac.
        ___________________________________

        “…courts…must…declare all acts contrary to the manifest tenor of the Constitution void.”

        “…men…do…what their powers do not authorize, [and] what they forbid.”

        “[A] limited Constitution … can be preserved in practice no other way than through the medium of courts of justice, whose duty it must be to declare all acts contrary to the manifest tenor of the Constitution void. Without this, all the reservations of particular rights or privileges would amount to nothing … To deny this would be to affirm … that men acting by virtue of powers may do not only what their powers do not authorize, but what they forbid.”

        – Alexander Hamilton

  6. If it were you, wouldn’t you say that there was no possibility that the laptop was yours? Wouldn’t you want to say that there was no possibility that you were trying to shake down the Libyans. Hunters answer is right out of the lawyers handbook of the ten most appropriate responses when being interviewed. If you say it might be true they can’t get you for making a false statement by saying the laptop isn’t yours if proof comes to light at a later time that it is. He has plenty of his lawyer friends from this forum patting him on his back for his excellent use of the tactic known as obfuscation. Otherwise known as lying by omission. This is common approach by many of our daily posters on this forum. They clap with joy and bounce with enthusiasm at their perceived cleverness. The noise they make is the sound of one hand clapping.

  7. It boils down to a lot of blah blah blah by a bunch of posters on this forum trying to tell us that the laptop is not Hunter’s. Hey posters, don’t you believe your buddy Hunter when he says the laptop could be his? You proclaim that the cursed Giuliani might have created the lap top out of thin air but Hunter tells us that the real physical thing called a laptop might be his regardless of the Giuliani involvement. Now you tell use that Hunter must be lying about his own laptop. No mater how much you wish it so the pictures of Hunter high on crack and the emails explaining his shakedowns for cash because of his father’s influence will not go away. Let me ask the readers here a question. Would you want those posting hear who defend Hunter and deny the existence of the laptop to be in your circle of best friends? Who needs people like this when we already have the plague.

  8. Once again, Matt Taibbi does what journalists used to do: dig, analyze, report. Well done.

    Behind a paywall so I will post an excerpt only.

    https://taibbi.substack.com/p/russiagate-more-like-watergate-f45

    Russiagate, More Like Watergate

    The indictment of Michael Sussmann sheds new light on the outrageous pre-election activities of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which have a familiar ring

    It’s been suggested that the case against Sussmann is weak because his alleged crime was lying to the FBI, when the FBI knew full well he was working for the Clinton campaign. This doesn’t exculpate Sussmann, it inculpates the FBI, for doing what it did throughout the Russiagate scandal: participating in the fiction that sources like Sussmann or Christopher Steele were financed by someone other than the Clinton campaign. In the Steele case, remember, the FBI went so far as to conceal the Clinton campaign’s role from the FISA court on at least three occasions (see page 260 of the Horowitz report), and director James Comey went so far as to publicly insist Steele’s report was “first funded by the Republicans,” among many other examples.

    Russiagate was a daisy-chain of deceptions. The Clinton campaign systematically planted phony stories about things like the Trump-Alfa business, the pee tape/blackmail tale, and Carter Page’s supposed role as a Trump-Russia conduit; the FBI went along with the fiction that inquiries launched on these matters did not originate as paid research from the Clinton campaign; and a parade of news media figures were culpable either as dupes or witting participants in these frauds, which in the case of the Alfa stunt was executed in a “hurry” to affect a presidential election.

    The only thing preventing all of this from being thought of as a scaled-up version of Watergate is the continued refusal of institutional America to own up to the comparison. Dick Nixon’s low-rent escapades like the “Canuck letter,” distributing fliers offering free “balloons for the kiddies” on behalf of Hubert Humphrey in black neighborhoods, or sending masses of pizzas to Ed Muskie’s hotel, all paled in comparison to the massive, ongoing campaign of fake news stories — political sabotage — planted by Clinton campaign figures in 2016 and beyond. The fact that the accompanying program of illegal surveillance was effected by lying to obtain FISA authority instead of a “third-rate burglary” and a bug doesn’t improve the situation. If the target had been anyone but Donald Trump, no one would bother even trying to deny how corrupt all this was, and continues to be.

    1. “This doesn’t exculpate Sussmann, it inculpates the FBI”

      It also inculpates Durham for bringing charges. Lying to the FBI is only illegal when the lie is a material lie. Taibbi’s argument works against materiality.

      “The fact that the accompanying program of illegal surveillance was effected by lying to obtain FISA authority …”

      Except that the Horowitz Report, which Taibbi relies on, concluded that Crossfire Hurricane was properly predicated and was not illegal surveillance.

      Taibbi ignores the actual predicate for the investigation, perhaps because it doesn’t involve the Clinton Campaign: “The FBI opened Crossfire Hurricane in July 2016 following the receipt of certain information from a Friendly Foreign Government (FFG). According to the information provided by the FFG, in May 2016, a Trump campaign foreign policy advisor, George Papadopoulos, “suggested” to an FFG official that the Trump campaign had received “some kind of suggestion” from Russia that it could assist
      with the anonymous release of information that would be damaging to Hillary Clinton {Trump’s opponent in the presidential election) and President Barack Obama.”

      This came to pass: Russia had hacked the DNC server and anonymously released information through Wikileaks to help Trump.

      1. ““This doesn’t exculpate Sussmann, it inculpates the FBI”

        It also inculpates Durham for bringing charges. Lying to the FBI is only illegal when the lie is a material lie. Taibbi’s argument works against materiality.”

        ATS you seemed to have forgotten that during the Flynn discussions. You are one big hypocrite.

        Additionally, you don’t know what Durham has. With everyone on the left lying it is a difficult task even though we all know the FBI lied and lied to a FISA judge. You are one obnoxious dude.

  9. Yeah, Turley, now that the AZ fraudit proves no widespread fraud and confirmed Biden’s win, it’s time to go back to the phony Hunter story. Look! Squirrel!

    1. Natacha missed the part where Hunter said the laptop “could be his”. Unlike Natacha, Hunter did not say that it must be a phony laptop. Who would be in a better position to know, Natacha or Hunter Biden? Another convoluted delusional wishing what’s true instead of seeing what’s true. This is another post to consider when assessing Natacha’s veracity and the morality of her turn of thought.

    2. Natcho ; So you are so deluded you think this laptop is NOT senile fearless leaders son’s ???. Are you so Rachel Madcow RUSSIA RUSSIA deluded you can not even take off your tinfoil socialist hat and not notice that the biden KKKlan has never denied whose laptop it was and it’s contents. They simply bleet out Russia Russia ad nauseum and never directly address the facts. Yeah for you …truth is a rare commodity.

  10. Fox News To Giuliani: “Stay Away”

    Dominion Lawsuit Reason For Distance

    Rudy Giuliani has been banned from Fox News for almost three months. As if the sting of that weren’t painful enough, the “9/11 mayor” learned of his banishment … on the eve of Sept. 11.

    Giuliani was slated to appear on “Fox & Friends” to mark the 20th anniversary of the attack. But the night before, host Pete Hegseth called Giuliani to say he’d been cut from the show and apologize.

    The ban extends not just to Giuliani, but also to his son Andrew, who has not been on Fox News since he launched his campaign for governor of New York in May despite many requests to go on the network. His team has been frustrated that rival GOP gubernatorial candidate Rep. Lee Zelden is a frequent guest.

    But bookers have told both Giulianis the ban comes from the top, sources said. The former New York City mayor had been a fixture on the network.

    Dominion Voting Systems has separately sued Giuliani and Fox News for allegedly defaming the company with false election claims — in the case of Fox, for allowing guests like Giuliani to make the claims on its network. Fox News has filed to dismiss the lawsuit, arguing that Dominion failed to show the network acted in malice, the legal standard for proving defamation. Giuliani has argued his claims about Dominion were “substantially true,” while acknowledging he didn’t understand how the company’s voting software works, according to Business Insider.

    In a 2018 FBI deposition that became public last month, Giuliani admitted he would push lies about Hillary Clinton on Fox News, referring to it as “throwing a fake.”

    ………………………………………………..

    It is well-known that Rudy Giuliani was the main purveyor of the Hunter Biden story. In fact, Giuliani made a trip to Ukraine in pursuit of that story. This most likely explains why mainstream media wanted nothing to do with the Hunter Biden story. And now even Fox News wants nothing to do with Rudy.

    1. The main purveyor of the laptop was/is hunter biden….after all he abandoned it and started this whole expose of his corrupt family. Oh and on Dominion…did you notice today the exceprt from Maricopa Co. AZ and their audit where they had on their Dominion machines vote data from several other states ?. It’s as though these machines were tethered to the internet and sharing and gerrymandering data…oh no say it aint so !. Gonna scream Russia Russia , or china china ?. Meanwhile the that is just one county in AZ and the absolute scam that occurred there on election night is now exposed.

  11. OT

    What’s worse than corruption? Death. More Americans die than are born. The American fertility rate is in a “death spiral.” The death of America looms. The same is true in Europe, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. If women become men, who makes the babies? Answer: Nobody. Without strong families, there are no strong nations. Apparently the 19th Amendment and its global equivalent constituted a death sentence for America et al.

    “WILL THERE BE EUROPEANS?”

    “Summit Hears Demography, not Climate Policy is Key Question for Europe’s Survival” (condensed)

    The Hungarian PM took centre stage at his beloved annual gathering of nationalist, populist, pro-family, anti-immigration figures, where attendees heard that immigration is not the answer to Europe’s population decline. Czech PM Andrej Babis; Slovenian PM Janez Jansa; Hungarian PM Viktor Orban; Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic; Bosnian Serb leader Milorad Dodik; and Hungarian Families Minister Katalin Novak on the stage at the 4th Budapest Demographic Summit in Budapest, Hungary, 23 September 2021. A declaration to promote families and childbearing was signed at the Fourth Budapest Demographic Summit on Thursday, which was attended by many of the region’s right-wing populist leaders together with a special guest appearance by former US vice president Mike Pence. “Families, the basis of our societies, are under attack by Western liberal forces, but we will not give in,” Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban declared at the opening of the summit. As is now routine, Orban listed his grievances vis a vis the EU, which he holds partly responsible for the longstanding shrinking in the populations of Central and Eastern Europe. Forecasts suggest the top-ten fastest shrinking countries are all in CEE, of which seven of these states are EU members. “Western civilisation cannot sustain itself,” Orban stated, referring to the declining birth rates in most EU countries, including his own. “But some do not even see it as a problem; some believe automatisation will solve all our problems while others want to settle migrants as the new working class of Europe. But you cannot change the identity of 1,000-year-old civilisations.” Orban was warmly applauded by the other speakers, who are also in the nationalist-populist mould: Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic, Bosnian Serb leader Milorad Dodik, Slovenian Prime Minister Janez Jansa and Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babis. Acknowledging Orban as the true ideological leader in their fight against the ‘tyranny’ of Brussels and the Western liberal mainstream, they also predicted a doomsday scenario for Europe if demographic challenges are not taken seriously by other European leaders. Vucic complained how nowadays it is impolite to speak about family values because you might offend someone, though you can freely discuss your dog’s new hairstyle. “We are facing a liberal political Marxism that forces us to listen to new theories which undermine our survival,” he said. Vucic questioned whether climate issues are really the most important challenges ahead, arguing that energy security and how to keep economies ticking over and investors happy are much more relevant. “Climate change, just like the rule of law, is used as a jihad against those countries which are disobedient,” the Serbian president said, underlining that demography is a question of survival in Serbia. He urged the other governments of the region to create a common platform to support the “survival of our countries”. Dodik shared the apocalyptic vision of his Serbian colleague when he lamented that large numbers of young people from Bosnia are heading west for good. Dodik blamed “selfish Western policy” for emptying the Balkans and warned that in their place would come people from different cultures who are not ready to assimilate. “Who will live in Europe in 50 years from now? Will there be Europeans? I live in a region only four and a half hours from here, where migrants come from the Middle East. Do you think it is far from Europe? No, it is not,” he said. Dodik also vowed his country would not become “the parking lot for migrants” and supported Orban’s hard line against immigration.

  12. Jonathan: For sometime you have been promoting the theory that Hunter Biden was part of an “influence peddling scheme” using the family name to get lucrative business deals. Your many columns on the subject dovetailed with Trump’s attempt to deep six Joe Biden’s candidacy. Trump sent crazy Rudy Giuliani to Ukraine to dig up dirt on the Bidens. Giuliani came up empty handed. The story pretty much died until a laptop appeared in a computer store owned by a Trump supporter. The owner made copies of the hard drive and gave them to Giuliani. Steve Bannon thought he had a smoking gun on Hunter Biden and peddled the story to the NY Post, a notorious right-wing tabloid. Again, there the story died because neither the FBI or other computer forensic specialists could confirm the authenticity of the contents of the lap top allegedly belonging to Hunter Biden.

    Now comes your column attempting to revive the Biden lap top controversy. It is curious your post comes just 2 days after a Fox report: “Politico confirms Hunter Biden laptop emails after Media declared story ‘Russian disinformation’ amid election”. Mere coincidence? I don’t think so. More and more you and Fox seem to working in lockstep. So far as I can determine Politico has not officially confirmed the story you and Fox are promoting. Your source of the alleged authentication is not even from Politico but from Ed Morrissey, a conservative blogger who hosts a daily show on “Hot Air”. On his 9/21 show Morrissey does not cite a Politico statement or story but rather a new book by Ben Schreckinger “The Bidens, Inside the First Family’s Fifty-Year Rise to Power”. I haven’t read the book so I don’t know whether it contains any blockbuster revelations about the alleged Hunter Biden emails. If there was a smoking gun I’m sure the mass media would be all over the story. At this point you and Fox are jumping the gun. But I am sure you and your employer will continue to throw mud hoping something sticks. Why don’t you just admit it. You are not a “distinguished” legal scholar toiling away in academia but a political hack!

    1. ”. Mere coincidence? I don’t think so. More and more you and Fox seem to working in lockstep.

      Two people reporting the same facts are not walking in lock step with each other. They are walking in lockstep with the truth.

      1. Two groups reporting the same unproven drivel ARE walking in lock step. Turley is part of the Fox propaganda.

        1. Natcho , there you go again “unproven drivel” ????. There is NOTHING so far dug out form that laptop that has been disproven. Multiple people have verified those contents that were senders and or receivers of some of hunters emails/texts on that hard drive. Let alone the business deals. As well the FB(lie) sat on this lap top and intended to quash it had not the brave owner of the PC shop came forward and forced their hand to admit it existed ,,,,and note the FB(lie) NEVER stated the contents of that laptop were NOT genuine…never.
          So comrade natcho it is you purveying disinformation and outright falsehoods , or as noted is it you raggedy red psaki ?.

    2. “Jonathan: For sometime you have been promoting the theory that Hunter Biden was part of an “influence peddling scheme” using the family name to get lucrative business deals.”
      ————————————————–

      It’s not a “theory” dum dum.

      It’s the Biden Family Business. It’s how the Biden’s made themselves filthy rich.

      Joe Biden is a lying, corrupt head of a sick, greedy, criminal money laundering family enterprise.

      Biden’s family has been running their scam, selling out their country to the highest bidder for the 50 years old Joey, “the Big Guy” has been in politics.

      He disgusts me.

        1. Biden evades Medicare taxes because he thinks those are for suckers who need to fund free healthcare for illegals.

        2. This planet fish flaps. And for you I will repeat this…the truth hurts your narrative. Sorry bruh but it is what it is…. and if it takes the truth to put you in the light…tis what it tis. And let us not forget that just today Lord darth senile biden grossed $13 million and using an S corporation claimed only $800 K was “income” to avoid minimally $500k in medicare/Medicaid taxes. Joe the hypocrite never worked a day in his life biden demands you pay your “fair share” whilst he scrupulously avoids every penney in tax he can.

          Nothing like having a corrupt misogynist racist wealthy daddy pop out a son just like him…though harder on the dependency of drugs etc and all. Then take this broken whore monger out on field trips with AF2 all over the world so this kept sod can mingle and make contacts and sellout US interests for filthy lucre. Yeah hardly any conflict of interest there…just a little , maybe wee , kinda not so small bit of that corruption there. And in his forays of depravity and grift he left a laptop with seriously incriminating evidence of his illicit cash schemes and borderline treasonous doings ( Note: These doings would have put anyone else in jeopardy with laws , FBI and the IRS ) . A common man would be on the legal hook already and be spit roasted by the legal system, ah but alas he’s not just a senators son now is he. And in helping Mr 10% rake in the filthy lucre while partying with all manner of prostitutes and chicom honey traps , spending lavishly , even screwing his late brothers wife ( class act there bruh ) , knocking up a stripper – which he tried to deny and had to pony up $cash$ to avoid a financial disclosure. And mind you he ponied up tens of thousands of bucks in an instant when he was at the same time declaring he was flat whore broke….. where did that money come from huh ?. This whole biden Klan is a walking nightmare of white trash , grifting , and privilege . The worst kind of rot DC and high end white trash can offer. And to top it off a Mr10% in obvious mental decline with a history of deceit , plagiarism , lies , racism and grift. Like father like Son. My , how life imitates political art.

          1. Politico authors confirms it all.

            Vindication Over Hunter’s Emails

            Politico confirms the New York Post story the Bidens never denied.

            The New York Post is claiming vindication over its scoop in October 2020 about Hunter Biden’s emails, and deservedly so. But that shouldn’t be the end of the story for everyone who attacked the Post or ignored the story to cover for Joe Biden.

            A writer for Politico has published a book about President Biden that confirms that some of the emails on a laptop belonging to Hunter Biden are authentic. This is barely a scoop, since neither Hunter Biden nor Joe Biden’s campaign denied last year that the laptop provided to the Post by Rudy Giuliani was Hunter’s. Both men counted instead on the rest of the media to serve as a cordon sanitaire, and did they ever. Twitter barred the Post’s feed for a time lest Americans be able to read about the emails and their content.

            A press that was interested in telling the truth about both candidates would have pressed to confirm the Post’s story and examined the emails for themselves. Instead they rose nearly as one to denounce the Post and claim without evidence that the emails might have been Russian disinformation. That was a sorry repeat of the Russia collusion narrative from 2016, which the press flogged for more than two years but we now know was concocted by the Hillary Clinton campaign.

            We also now know that the Russian email disinformation story was false. But that didn’t stop 50 former intelligence officials from signing a statement on Oct. 19, 2020, that floated the Russia canard.

          WAKE UP!

    3. Denise McMenace ; “A theory”….there is no denying what hunter crackhead biden does , and how and where he does it when he is not at a crack house or cat house. He is the filthy lucre hoover for the biden family…rakes it in via influence and his direct connection to daddy. And he tries his best to launder it when he does not manage to smoke it all up with cheap whores. And you bleet out like a sheep “theory”…. yeah nice try but that dog don’t hunt man !.

  13. The Biden Gang is guilty, at a minimum, of abuse of power, usurpation of power, influence peddling, money laundering and felonious perjury.

    Taking center stage: “Vice President” Kamala Harris.

    Not so fast.
    _________

    “IGNORANCE OF THE LAW IS NO EXCUSE”

    Kamala Harris will NEVER be eligible to be U.S. president.

    Kamala Harris’ parents were foreign citizens at the time of her birth.

    – A mere “citizen” could only have been President at the time of the adoption of the Constitution – not after.

    – The U.S. Constitution, Article 2, Section 1, Clause 5, requires the President to be a “natural born citizen,” which, by definition in the Law of Nations, requires “parents who are citizens” at the time of birth of the candidate and that he be “…born of a father who is a citizen;…”

    – Ben Franklin thanked Charles Dumas for copies of the Law of Nations which “…has been continually in the hands of the members of our Congress, now sitting,…”

    – “The importance of The Law of Nations, therefore, resides both in its systematic derivation of international law from natural law and in its compelling synthesis of the modern discourse of natural jurisprudence with the even newer language of political economy. The features help to explain the continuing appeal of this text well into the nineteenth century among politicians, international lawyers and political theorists of every complexion.” – Law of Nations Editors Bela Kapossy and Richard Whatmore.

    – The Jay/Washington letter of July, 1787, raised the presidential requirement from citizen to “natural born citizen” to place a “strong check” against foreign allegiances by the commander-in-chief.

    – Every American President before Obama had two parents who were American citizens.

    – The Constitution is not a dictionary and does not define words or phrases, such as “natural born citizen,” as a dictionary, while the Law of Nations, 1758, does.

    – The Law of Nations is referenced in Article 1, Section 8, of the U.S. Constitution: “To define and punish Piracies and Felonies committed on the high Seas, and Offences against the Law of Nations;…”

    Law of Nations, Vattel, 1758

    Book 1, Ch. 19

    § 212. Citizens and natives.

    “The citizens are the members of the civil society; bound to this society by certain duties, and subject to its authority, they equally participate in its advantages. The natives, or natural-born citizens, are those born in the country, of parents who are citizens. As the society cannot exist and perpetuate itself otherwise than by the children of the citizens, those children naturally follow the condition of their fathers, and succeed to all their rights. The society is supposed to desire this, in consequence of what it owes to its own preservation; and it is presumed, as matter of course, that each citizen, on entering into society, reserves to his children the right of becoming members of it. The country of the fathers is therefore that of the children; and these become true citizens merely by their tacit consent. We shall soon see whether, on their coming to the years of discretion, they may renounce their right, and what they owe to the society in which they were born. I say, that, in order to be of the country, it is necessary that a person be born of a father who is a citizen; for, if he is born there of a foreigner, it will be only the place of his birth, and not his country.”

    Ben Franklin letter December 9, 1775, thanking Charles Dumas for 3 copies of the Law of Nations:

    “…I am much obliged by the kind present you have made us of your edition of Vattel. It came to us in good season, when the circumstances of a rising state make it necessary frequently to consult the law of nations. Accordingly that copy, which I kept, (after depositing one in our own public library here, and sending the other to the College of Massachusetts Bay, as you directed,) has been continually in the hands of the members of our Congress, now sitting, who are much pleased with your notes and preface, and have entertained a high and just esteem for their author…”

    1. Interesting thought, though the democrats will ignore this just as they ignore every other law they don’t like and they won’t enforce it. Obama and DACA, Biden and the eviction fiasco, and the border mess. Just flat ignore their oath and their moral obligation to uphold the law. And 50 some % of the country thinks that is OK. Where does that leave us…

  14. Remember the infamous Trump Tower Meeting with Donald Trump Jr and the Russian bad guys? Or rather do you remember the 24/7 media OBSESSION over the, non-nefarious, meeting? Can you imagine if Trump was still president (or not) and it was Don Jr instead of Hunter Biden? The media attacks would be unrelenting, unapologetic and UNAMERICAN! But it’s Hunter…. nothing to see here. nothing at all, the media isa collectively rolling their eyes at republicans ….yawn..

  15. What?
    A long time, career politician and his family profiting off of his position and name?
    Say it is not so!

    Not just the Biden’s. Kennedy’s, Bush’s, Clinton’s how many other legacy name families in politics?

      1. But the underworld bootlegging experience served him well in his later dealings with the criminal politician class.

      2. Somebody asked FDR why he appointed Joe Kennedy to head the SEC. He said it takes a crook to catch a crook.

    1. Kennedy money is dirty while Bush, Clinton and Biden are paid stooges of the Deep Deep State.

      Joe Kennedy was a useful idiot and bootlegger for the Mob and an artful scam artist in the crash/depression stock market.

      Joe Kennedy was one of the ostracized Irish; he over compensated criminally.

  16. Tucker Carlson made an interesting observation about the video that the DOJ fought to keep secret. Black clad thugs who have not been featured much in news or investigations can be seen smashing their way into the building ahead of the Trump supporters.

    Could these Boys in Black be FBI or Pelosi’s Brownshirts, Antifa? The agency doesn’t seem particularly interested in having the public help find them. Too busy looking for grandfathers who took selfies I guess. All the garage-door pulls have already been thoroughly investigated.

    1. Young,
      I watched the video, not on Fox’s Carlson. I prefer to view evidence myself without commentary that my influence my own assessment.
      I noticed, no one there to stop them.
      They did not seem concerned that someone would be there to stop them.
      Who are they is a good question.
      Is the FBI actively searching for them?

      They have yet to find the person whom placed those two bombs at the RNC and DNC offices.

      1. UpstateFarmer,

        Although I saw the video on the Gateway site I, too, skipped the commentary. I wanted to watch the raw video.

        Very good point of yours that nobody was there to stop these thugs and they seemed unworried that they might be stopped.

        No wonder the DOJ tried to hide this video. I think we can be reasonably sure that none of the folks being held in jail without trial are among these black-clad thugs.

        The only things missing from the apparent setup are Jussie Smollett crying with a noose around his neck and Al Sharpton with a bullhorn.

        I felt no temptation to go to the Jan 6 activity. I don’t do crowds and I was certain that somebody would be there to cause a lot of trouble. It has happened often before. It was peculiar that the folks who almost always show up around events like this, BLM, Antifa, FBI, pickpockets, were claimed to be totally absent at this event. I don’t believe they skipped this one, except, perhaps, for the pickpockets; they probably had more sense and morals to be involved with the rest of them.

      2. Upstate– “They have yet to find the person whom placed those two bombs at the RNC and DNC offices.”

        Yeah, not much seems to be happening with that. I wonder if they even were bombs?

        I also wonder about the Las Vegas shooting. It seemed like the usual lone lunatic at first but I watched the Clark County sheriff hold a news conference and when he was about to disclose more information an apparent FBI agent stepped forward and shut him up. That seemed strange. I wondered, “What does the FBI have to do with this?” Maybe nothing, but after their record of other prefab crimes to ‘solve’ one wonders what is going on anytime they are involved. They used to enjoy the affections of all of the country, including mine, and they have laid that reputation to waste. It’s gotten almost to the point where if you see someone apparently setting up a terrorist attack, notify your local sheriff and he can go and arrest the FBI agents.

      3. “Is the FBI actively searching for them?”

        As far as I can tell, the FBI is actively searching for everyone who committed criminal acts in the Capitol on Jan. 6. You can see their wanted photos and video here: https://www.fbi.gov/wanted/capitol-violence

        “They have yet to find the person whom placed those two bombs at the RNC and DNC offices.”

        Not because they aren’t looking. Up to $100K reward: https://www.fbi.gov/wanted/seeking-info/suspected-pipe-bombs-in-washington-dc

      4. How can you possibly extrapolate from a short video of a few people climbing through a window, dressed in head to toe in black garb that they did not seem concerned that someone would be there to stop them? How do you know they haven’t been caught? You and Tucker sure do know how to “fill in the blanks” for the rest of us, lol. And, no I’m not a brain dead liberal, I’m a conservative thinks for himself and there is nothing in that video that indicated those people were FBI agents nor that they weren’t concerned.

        1. why was there any resistance from the prosecution in releasing this video? This was wanton destruction and some of the first people in. You would think they would want this out there from day one. After all don’t these look like the assassins after Nancy Pelosi or at least highly trained storm troopers?

      1. Anon TS “Claims a guy who clearly hasn’t looked at all of the FBI photos and videos asked for public help.

        Would I find you in them?

  17. There is nothing inherently bad about crime, corruption, racism, etc. According to the Elite Establishment, these are, in fact, good things when carried out by the people and organizations that have received official approval from the Elite Establishment. The Plagiarist-in-Chief and his extraordinarily gifted artist son have long received such approval from the Elite Establishment. The only issue here is whether the Plagiarist-in-Chief received his 10%. He’s certainly done enough acts of criminality and corruption to earn it.
