What Elephant? The Media Again Buries A Hunter Biden Scandal on Foreign Deals During the Biden Vice Presidency

I previously wrote a column on the one year anniversary of the Hunter Biden laptop story that marveled at the success of the Biden family in making the scandal vanish before that 2020 election. It was analogized to Houdini making his 10,000-pound elephant Jennie disappear in his act. The Biden trick however occurred live before an audience of millions. Now, in an encore, a new major story on Biden’s Chinese dealings has surfaced. Once again, poof!

The media has made the story disappear except for a couple of the usual outlets. Even with the New York Times reporting on the story, the disclosure of Biden’s role in securing one of the world’s largest cobalt mines for China (a key component to electric battery production) has been ignored by the major networks and many other print outlets. Once again, ABC. NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, and other media just cannot see the elephant.

What is most amazing about this continuing trick is that the story has all of the elements that the media longed to confirm during the Trump Administration on the financial dealings of the Trump children. The son of the President was involved in a successful effort to handover a strategically vital natural resource to the Chinese that would guarantee their dominance in one of the most important new industries of the “Green economy.” This occurred during a period when Hunter Biden and his uncle were accused of running a global influence peddling operation with foreign powers that cashed in on the Vice Presidency of Joe Biden. Then there is the fact that the story appears to contradict denials of continuing ownership in such foreign interests by the Bidens.

Finally, there is the fact that this windfall from the Chinese occurred in a field that Hunter Biden knew nothing about (much like his work on the board of the Ukrainian natural gas firm Burisma) and he was, by his own description, a hopeless addict. In his recent book, Hunter admits that he was a crack addict and alcoholic all the way up to the start of his father’s presidential campaign — in his words, “Drinking a quart of vodka a day by yourself in a room is absolutely, completely debilitating,” as well as “smoking crack around the clock.”

This elephant is truly difficult to unsee.

Hunter Biden established the firm Bohai Harvest RST (BHR) Equity Investment Fund Management Company with a few American and Chinese partners in 2013. He and his American associates controlled 30 percent of the Shanghai-based operation and served on the board. They then put together the purchase of the Congo cobalt and copper mine transfer from American company Freeport-McMoRan to China Molybdenum for the sum of $2.65 billion.

The Tenke Fungurume mine was considered a human rights nightmare. The Congolese military reportedly reduced workers to virtual slaves, torched homes, and killed dissenters. Amnesty International spokeswoman Sarah Jackson denounced “the long history of excessive use of force … unlawful killings.”

However, there was money to be made and Hunter Biden was there to lend the Biden name to the enterprise. BHR served as a minority stakeholder to buy out around $1.14 billion of shares from Lundin Mining of Canada, a partial owner of the mine. China Molybdenum then bought BHR’s shares two years later to give it 80% of ownership of the mine and control of the vital natural resources.

Biden controlled 10 percent of BHR through Skaneateles LLC but his lawyer reportedly insisted that, as of April 2020, he no longer had such interests in this foreign company. That may be untrue, according to the media reports. Chinese business records reviewed by Fox News in April 2021 allegedly show that Hunter Biden continued to hold a 10% stake.

If true, it means that through the election, Hunter Biden was still receiving money from a variety of companies with close ties to the Chinese, Russian, and Ukrainian governments. In this case, his alleged influence peddling was used to deliver a huge strategic advantage to the Chinese in the very area of electric cars that his father was making an American investment priority.

Of course, this is simply not the type of scoop that has drawn most of the media coverage.

None of these facts, however, can force the media to see the elephant. The key to the trick was involving the media in the original trick is that it invests reporters in the illusion. It is like calling audience members to the stage to assist in the performance. Reporters have to insist that there was nothing to see or they have to admit to being part of the original deception. The media cannot see the elephant without the public seeing something about the media in its past efforts to conceal it.

  1. Curious that youtube has deleted the Democrats hero, mathboifly, aka Darrell Brooks, BLM Rap where he vows to kill people. The Telegraph UK still has it for now

  2. Ben types furiously to maintain the filibuster.

    Ben’s quiver is empty and he’s facing annihilation.

    Ben has nothing to say so he keeps on talking and talking and talking…his mission is to demoralize and take up space.

    Thank you for your concession, Ben.

    Ben does this because he is terrified of the future for his ilk, the communists (liberals, progressives, socialists, democrats, RINOs) in America.

    Joke Biden is down to 38% and Camel-a Harryis 28%.

    The losses keep mounting; whatever will the communists (liberals, progressives, socialists, democrats, RINOs) do?

    The communists (liberals, progressives, socialists, democrats, RINOs) in America have assigned Ben to the Turley Blog for the foreseeable future.

    The problem for the Hillary/Obongo gang is that Ben’s cover was blown.

    Ben is more fraudulent and false than Hillary Clinton and her “Steal Dossier,” the dossier she used, ultimately, to steal the election.

    You can go home now, Ben; tell Hills hello.

  3. Steve says:

    “That is literally unethical rationalization #45 The Unethical Precedent, or “It’s Not The First Time”

    I’m not arguing that it’s ok to be a troll because Thomas Paine was a troll in his day; rather, I am simply stating that a troll can be a good person provided that the objects of the troll are bad people like the British or lying Trumpists.

    1. The Hunter Biden accusations were all a smoke screen by the right/conservatives/Trumpers to cover up Trump’s own heinous corruption and dishonesty.

      IT was intended to discredit the election away from Biden and get Trump elected.

      That didn’t work.

      The claims of election fraud didn’t work.

      Rioting and raiding the Capitol didn’t work.

      Biden is president.

      He is leading the country into the future.

      He is no longer wasting money and lives in Afghanistan.

      Trump is gone and on his way to being forgotten.

      Nobody cares about Hunter Biden.

      He’s not the president.

      All the China/Ukraine malarkey was a Red Cape for gullible Red State idiots.

      Go away.

      1. You took the words out of my mouth. Thank you. Now, I can go brine my turkey. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family, Ben Marcus!

      2. “He is no longer wasting money and lives in Afghanistan. ”

        I will take only one point at a time. I think a lot of people wanted out of Afghanistan from both sides of the aisle. But who wanted a withdrawal handled so poorly. Americans dead, Americans left as future hostages. Afghani’s that helped America left behind so they and their families could be tortured while permitting Afghani terrorists into our country, which will cause harm and death in America.

        Take note that when Trump dealt with the same people, they stepped over the line. Instantly Trump took action, and all that type of aggressive action ceased. No Americans died over 18 months, while many Americans were killed in a matter of hours when Biden was in control.

        History will note how Stupid Biden was to withdraw from the Bagram airbase before seeing that America had what it needed.

        Ben Marcus, go Back to Malibu Kitchen. They have a job waiting for you. They want you to expose what and who you are to all those rich people. Seinfeld, in particular, intends to utilize your dull and crass character in a skit to make people laugh at the type of person you are.

          1. There was nothing that was negotiated that needed to stand. The Afghans violated the agreement at the start. Trump was there to protect Americans and those that aided us.

            Biden was there to protect the flow of money into i=his back pocket.

            1. “There was nothing that was negotiated that needed to stand. ”

              Big picture, I tend to agree with this. The only ones who would fully know is the Pentagon.

              As far as the rest…, trump only looks out for trump.

              1. Trump didn’t have the courage to do something as bold as withdraw from Afghanistan.

                If you asked Trump to find Afghanistan on a map he would probably point to the Appalachians and brag about all the hillbilly hookers he shagged there.

                Trump was surely warned that withdrawing from Afghanistan would be messy and/or unpopular so that was another mess he left for Biden to clean up.

                Which Biden did.

                Wasn’t perfect, but it’s over.

                No more wasting a quarter billion dollars a day, or American lives, or flooding the VA with emotionally and physically damaged vets.

                1. Your ignorence is amazing! Biden couldn’t have screwed it up anymore than he did. Trump would’ve made the exit without leaving American citizens and Alies and billions of dollars worth of military guns and equipment behind for our enemies. Biden did everything out of order like a scatterbrained idiot!

              2. Based on Trump’s estimated financial losses being President, he didn’t do a good job looking out for himself. He did, however, do a good job looking out for the nation.

                Compare that to the Biden clan whose high lifestyles come from government and the people.

                1. Yeah Trump did a great job for America increasing the national debt a whopping 36% and doing more long-term damage to the economy in four years than Obama did in eight.

                  1. I am not happy with the debt from any presidents, but Trump caused the economy to grow and he pushed unemployment to the minimum along with providing more income for the middle class. He did so much while Biden is destroying everything good about America.

                    Decline is a choice. Biden has chosen decline. That is good for you because the population has to fall quite a bit until it reaches your level.

                    Go back to the Malibu Cafe. They need you to walk the dog and pick up after him.

                    1. Look within Ben Marcus. What do you know about the world around you? Nothing. Do you have any idea of what happened in Afghanistan? No. Do you know what that means to lose soft power? No. You probably don’t know what soft power is. Do you understand economics? No. If you did you wouldn’t have exposed your ignorance with your Tesla example. Do you know about life style? No. If you did you wouldn’t be bragging about cleaning the floors at Malibu Kitchen.

                      Most people don’t eat at places like Malibu Kitchen where the service is rude and the food bad though at high prices. You think closeness to celebrities makes you better. Your fantasy shows you in a poor light. You have nothing at home and have to dream about being with the rich and famous.

                    2. OT: “There is a threat to the U.S. trucking industry, supply chain and national security. It is NOT reported in the mainstream media: Foreign truckers — cleared for expedited commercial crossings between Canada, Mexico, and the U.S. — include at least half a dozen drivers who had deep connections to terrorism and drug-smuggling operations.”

                      “Pete Buttigieg says that national supply chain problems are caused by a lack of affordable childcare.”

                      Tiffany Cross offered a different analysis of the trucking/supply chain problem. “This is an industry populated by a lot of white men over the age of 55,”

                      The administration is insane. It is full of rubber stamp approvals and rubber stamp administrators.

          2. I negotiated to give you a million dollars.

            Did you get a million dollars?

            Nope.

            Trump didn’t have the will or courage to withdraw from Afghanistan.

            He probably couldn’t find Afghanistan on a map with both hands.

            Trump would never have risked doing something seen as unpopular.

            Or risky.

            Biden did it

            1. LOL
              Trump’s agreement was a framework that required the Taliban to leave us alone and we would withdraw. Only Joe Biden would withdraw the military first and then trust the Taliban to let everyone out. The incompetence of Biden was never negotiated by Trump. Moreover Trump was preparing to leave Afghanistan when the CIA and Biden’s other pals concocted the Russians paying bounties on US troops hoax that made it impossible politically for Trump to continue the withdrawal.
              Even if you despise Trump that doesn’t mean you have to defend a corrupt, incompetent tool like Biden unless you put your ideology ahead of your faculties for logic and reason.

            2. Trump kept the Taliban from creating danger to American interests. He did it so quietly you didn’t notice. Biden made a lot of noise with deaths and torture all over the place. Lots of noise was created and you could hear that noise. You equate noise and a bloodbath with Biden doing a good job.

              Plain ignorance.

              1. Trump didn’t do shit.

                He couldn’t find Afghanistan on a map with both hands.

                Trump could have withdrawn forces but he chose to continue wasting a quarter billion dollars a day.

                Trump didn’t have the courage to withdraw from Afghanistan, so he left it to Biden.

                Biden did it, did it fast and did it right.

                We are OUT.

                No more wasting money and lives.

                No more flooding the VA with emotional and physical basket cases.

                War is stupid and pointless.

                Afghanistan is hopeless.

                Biden recognized that and did the right thing.

                1. Benji ; Joke biden did nothing but SHIT !. You seem to forget that the apparatchiks in DC openly gave false troop numbers and disobeyed Trump on a continual basis. These globalist swine were of one mind to not allow Trump any victory in azzcrackaztan. This is open and common knowledge. They allowed joke biden to do his handler’s bidding and abandon huge amounts of armaments and allies in an exodus even more calamitous than South vietnam. Joke biden is a gummi puppet and alot worse.

                  1. What you say here is true, and perhaps Ben is too young to understand real history. Pity. His only response is venom without fact or reason. So sad.

          3. THE BOILERPLATE

            Under Obama, Biden loaned Tesla $465 million to Tesla under the Advanced Technology Vehicles Manufacturing program.

            Tesla used the money to modernize and robotize the Fremont plant and build the Tesla S.

            Tesla paid that loan back nine years early with $15 million interest, and that loan is creating tens of thousands of jobs and hundreds of billions in new wealth.

            And God knows how much tax revenue. And it’s a gift that is going to keep on giving long into the future.

            Look at the factory in Texas, and the jobs created there.

            And look at what that loan has inspired, like Ford investing $11 billion to build battery factories and a truck plant in Kentucky.

            The success of the Tesla S sparked that, and the success of the Tesla S has a foundation in that loan overseen by Biden.

            Point me toward any one thing Trump attempted or achieved that comes anywhere close to that one loan by Biden to Tesla.

            The truth is, the sum total of everything Trump attempted and achieved don’t add up to that one loan by Biden to Tesla.

            That is proof that the Green New Deal is the Real Deal, and it’s the foundation of the American Jobs Proposal and the Infrastructure Plan.

            That’s MAGA. That’s vision and leadership and success.

            There’s more to Making America Great Again than parading around the proles in a stupid red hat.

            1. “THE BOILERPLATE
              Under Obama, Biden loaned Tesla $465 million”

              It is clear from your logic that you know nothing about finance.

              1. Prove it wrong, smartass.

                Educate us.

                Biden oversaw a loan of $465 million to Tesla.

                They used the money to robotize Fremont and build the S.

                With that momentum, Tesla went public.

                They paid the loan back nine years early with $15 million in interest.

                That loan has engendered tens of thousands of jobs.

                And hundreds of billions in new wealth.

                All in 11 years.

                What part of that is wrong?

                1. Obama spent a lot of money. In fact over his 4 years Obama spent $8.6Trillion more than the revenue he had. Most of what Obama did of that nature failed. The loan to Tesla was a bright spot, as far as ROI but was a tiny fraction of expenditures (It’s also not a government function.). If you wish to look at it as a success then consider what $465M is to 8.6Trillion. It’s a minuscule fraction of what was over budget. It represents the tiny brain you have compared to the size of a normal brain.

                  1. Trump promised to eliminate the national debt but then increased the national debt 36% and did more long-term damage to the economy in four years than Obama did in 8.

            2. Advanced Technology Vehicles Manufacturing program

              That corporate welfare program, which shouldn’t exist, was created under Bush.

              “That is proof that the Green New Deal is the Real Deal . . .”

              I guess you didn’t feel like mentioning Solyndra’s $535 million boondoggle.

              Command economies have a centuries-long history of utter failure. But, by all means, keep trying. Maybe this time reality will bend to the wishes of bureaucrats.

          4. And Trump refused to end the occupation during his presidency. As he so often does, he left the problem for someone else to resolve.

            He also made it worse by halting the processing of the special visa applications.

            Trumpists fantasize about what Trump would have done if he’d still been in office, while ignoring what he didn’t do while he was in office.

        1. If you’re going to throw shade on the Afghanistan withdrawal, start with your hero, who drew down our troop strength from 14,000 to 2,500 and released 5,000 Taliban prisoners, all without even consulting the Afghani government, which is why they gave up. The only “action” Trump ever took was to preen for the cameras. Trump didn’t negotiate for keeping the Bagram airbase, either, so when you try to blame Biden for all of the problems in withdrawing from Afghanistan, you are just repeating the crap served to you on pro-Trump media. Trump’s incompetence set the stage for the problems with the Afghanistan withdrawal, and that is what history will note, along with Trump’s utter incompetence in handling the pandemic, including intentionally lying about the dangers, downplaying the risk, refusing to set an example by wearing a mask and pushing for dangerous quack cures like Hydroxychloroquine. History will note that Trump’s incompetence alone is responsible for 130,000 American deaths from COVID. And, while history may blame other US Presidents for mistakes in conducting wars, for example, that resulted in deaths, no former US President ever caused so many Americans to die as a result of lying about a dangerous pandemic solely because it made him look bad. Trump is unique in this regard. History will also note that he cheated to get into office, never obtained even a 50% approval rating, was impeached twice, 48 US Senators voted to remove him from office, and because his ego wouldn’t allow him to admit defeat, after losing dozens of court challenges and recounts, started an insurrection to try to prevent his successor from taking office. He is unique in refusing to attend his successor’s inauguration, and for needing to be threatened with forcible ejection if he didn’t get out of the White House. Also noteworthy is the fact that he still won’t accept defeat, and more than a year after losing the election, he still lies about the loss and won’t shut up or go away.

      3. Have you not read the evidence against the fake stories, the Russia Hoax, Mueller Investigation, phones Impeachment’s driven by politics, without facts? Durhams Investigations, Inspector General Horowitz and more have proven your accusations false. Most media are propagandists. We have to seek truth and research.

      4. Your delusional drug use shows through benny. Joke biden leads nothing ,,,he is a gummi puppet. Everything he is pushing unto America is turning to manure. America was energy independent until the biden regime, America had effective border enforcement and management of the plague of illegal aliens until the biden regime. There was massive election fraud , fact. Hunter biden is the corrupt conduit for foreign monies into the biden Klan pockets to include Mr 10% aka joke biden. America had armed forces that were cohesive and working…under joke biden we have a divided military that embraces woke -isms over common sense and duty.
        The sell out of our contry to chinese and russian interests is joke biden’s lasting backstab to America. The joke ( biden) is on us citizens and the demented comedic team of this admin means to keep it that way for their filthy lucre.

      5. Ben lives in a make-believe world, where wishing makes it so, and repeated mantras learned at the knee of his instructors in media and big tech form a protective barrier between him and his fears. Also, Ben can’t read. Because if he could read Turley’s article from beginning to end, and fact-check it with research, he would realize that what the Democratic machine projected onto Trump, they themselves were doing. Hunter Biden has been an agent selling out American interests (influence selling to the Chinese, the Russians, and the Ukrainians) for profit. Trump did not. Trump’s family did not. Getting out of Afghanistan was Trump’s idea, and he had a planned escape, undermined by Biden’s abrupt and careless abandonment of American interests. Only the blind media followers believe the election wasn’t stolen. A future with Bidens at the helm is grim indeed. Open borders may well not reap the benefits Democrats thought would ensue. Most immigrants I talk to wonder what the hell Biden is doing to wreck the country so fast they sought so fervently.
        And, oh, by the way, Trump is most certainly not forgotten. In a matchup today in swing states, Trump wins. Again. I enjoy Red State for the insights into alternative views, and I’ve made my choice about who the idiot is here.

  4. Criminals don’t care about anyone else’s rights, but their rights are supposed to be cared about?
    That’s not fair.

  5. I think it’s about time we stopped besmerching the good name of the Biden family. Our fine president is a man of many stripes. Yesterday he was working at a soup kitchen, and today he’s rubbing elbows with the common folk on Nantucket. He’s a man for all seasons. I’m sure Hunter will follow in his footsteps.

    1. The Bidens are vacationing in Nantucket. Yeah, a few photo ops, but a “man for all seasons”? I assume you’re just joking.

    1. Anny – grew up with that movie, the grammar school I went to played it in the auditorium week before Christmas break every year. The kid in me surfs the channel’s each year for my grandkids and me to watch. Ah, the days of duck and cover and kiss your behind goodbye, so much safer and happier. The street scum openly bum rushing stores as we see them doing today wouldn’t last a New York minute in those days.

    CHARGES REGARDING 2020 ELECTION

    Racine Co. Sheriff refers criminal charges against five elections commissioners

    The Racine County Sheriff’s Office alleges the Wisconsin Election Commission broke the law last year by preventing special voting deputies from entering nursing homes to help people vote. Racine County Sheriff Christopher Schmaling announced in a news release Wednesday that he had referred recommendations for criminal charges against five of the six members of the Wisconsin Elections Commission (WEC) to Racine County District Attorney Patricia Hanson, a Republican. Last week, Schmaling called a news conference to lay out allegations of election fraud against the commissioners but said he hadn’t sent the investigation to the DA and was instead calling for a statewide investigation into the matter from Attorney General Josh Kaul. After Kaul declined to open an investigation, Schmaling sent his recommendations, which include felony charges. Schmaling and his investigator allege that when the WEC voted unanimously in Spring 2020 not to send special voting deputies (SVDs) into nursing home facilities because of the COVID-19 pandemic, they’d broken the law. SVDs are pairs of people appointed by local election clerks to go to nursing homes to assist with voting. At the time of the unanimous vote, visitors weren’t being allowed into nursing homes to protect residents from the virus so the WEC voted to forgo the two visits SVDs are required to attempt to make to nursing homes and instead use the normal absentee ballot process. Schmaling alleged that once the residents of a Mount Pleasant nursing home used the absentee ballot process, they were illegally coerced by facility staff into voting. Schmaling said some of the residents were cognitively impaired. People with cognitive disabilities are still able to vote unless a judge declares them incompetent.

    1. Trump lost by 8 million popular votes or something.

      He LOST.

      That was a clear message from the American people: “YOU’RE FIRED!!!”

      Election fraud is right up there with ChemTrails and Deep State and PizzaGate and UFOs.

      1. The communists (liberals, progressives, socialists, democrats, RINOs) in America cheated.

        The election was stolen from the actual American President, Donald J. Trump.

        Above are the first charges filed related to that national crime.

      2. The Democrats cheated. That shows that even the Democrats didn’t think Biden should win.

        Look at the difference in America under Biden’s leadership. Take petroleum. He enhances Russia’s ability to harm Ukraine and Europe with the pipeline while preventing us from building our own. At the same time, he is warning Russia about its troops on the Ukrainian border. The Russians didn’t make bold moves against Trump because they knew Trump was a leader, not a crook. In the meantime, prices at the pump are climbing, and those living in the north will face tremendous costs for heating this winter. We have more than enough production capacity to bring gas prices down permanently in a short time. Instead, Biden will use the strategic energy supply to keep the price from rising too quickly. Who is benefiting from all of this? Our enemies Russia and China, but Ben Marcus is too busy at Malibu Kitchen sucking up to the dishwasher to know what is happening to America.

        1. The Democrats cheated. That shows that even the Democrats didn’t think Biden should win.

          NO THE DEMOCRATS DIDN’T CHEAT.THEY DIDN’T HAVE TO

          YOU THINK THEY FALSIFIED 8 MILLION VOTES?

          THEY DIDN’T FALSIFY ANY VOTED

          Look at the difference in America under Biden’s leadership.

          YEAH HE PULLED AMERICA OUT OF AFGHANISTAN AND SAVED A QUARTER OF A BILLION DOLLARS A DAY AND HUNDREDS OF LIVES.

          BIDEN OVERSAW THE VACCINE DISTRIBUTION AND SAVED THE LIVES OF PEOPLE SMART ENOUGH TO TAKE THEM.

          STADIUMS ARE FULL OF PEOPLE, THE ECONOMY IS BOUNCING BACK

          AND BIDEN’S INFRASTRUCTURE PLAN IS TRUE MAGA – VISION AND LEADERSHIP

          THE GREEN NEW DEAL IS THE REAL DEAL

          BIDEN PROVED THAT WITH THE $465 MILLION LOAN TO TESLA.

          Take petroleum. He enhances Russia’s ability to harm Ukraine and Europe with the pipeline while preventing us from building our own.

          BIDEN HAD A CHOICE BETWEEN SHAFTING THE GERMANS – AN ALLY – AND HURTING RUSSIA – AN ENEMY

          HE CHOSE TO HELP THE ALLY – GERMANY – TO APOLOGIZE FOR THEM HAVING TO DEAL WITH TRUMP FOR FOUR YEARS.

          THAT HELPED RUSSIA, BUT OH WELL.

          At the same time, he is warning Russia about its troops on the Ukrainian border.

          The Russians didn’t make bold moves against Trump because they knew Trump was a leader, not a crook.

          TRUMP LOST A $25 MILLIION LAWSUIT FOR DEFRAUDING STUDENTS.

          TRUMP SCREWED A SAD OLD STRIPPER AND THEN BRIBED HER $130,000 TO KEEP QUIET.

          TRUMP WAS FINED $2,000,000 FOR STEALING FROM HIS OWN CHARITY.

          BIDEN IS WORTH LIKE $9 MILLION.

          I HAVE NEIGHBORS WITH GUEST HOUSES WORTH MORE THAN THAT,

          IF BIDEN IS A CROOK HE’S NOT A VERY GOOD CROOK.

          In the meantime, prices at the pump are climbing,

          BECAUSE OF SUPPLY AND DEMAND, YOU NING NONG.

          TURN OFF HEE HAW AND PICK UP AN ECONOMICS BOOK

          and those living in the north will face tremendous costs for heating this winter.

          SUPPLY AND DEMAND.

          We have more than enough production capacity to bring gas prices down permanently in a short time.

          NO, WE DON’T.

          HOW MUCH HAS BIDEN REDUCED PRODUCTION?

          Instead, Biden will use the strategic energy supply to keep the price from rising too quickly.

          AMERICA USES TOO MUCH OIL.

          18 MILLION BARRELS A DAY OR SOMETHING

          RIDICULOUS

          BIDEN IS MOVING US TOWARD THE GREEN NEW DEAL, AS HE SHOULD.

          Who is benefiting from all of this?

          YOU AND ME.

          Our enemies Russia and China, but Ben Marcus is too busy at Malibu Kitchen sucking up to the dishwasher to know what is happening to America.

          IM GOING THERE RIGHT NOW TO PICK UP STUFFING AND AN APPLE PIE.

          READ AN ECONOMICS BOOK

          TURN OFF FOX

          THINK FOR YOURSELF.

          NOT TOO LATE, I DON’T THINK

          I ALWAYS CHALLENGE TRUMPERS TO ANSWER THIS BELOW, BUT THEY NEVER DO

          Under Obama, Biden loaned Tesla $465 million to Tesla under the Advanced Technology Vehicles Manufacturing program.

          Tesla used the money to modernize and robotize the Fremont plant and build the Tesla S.

          Tesla paid that loan back nine years early with $15 million interest, and that loan is creating tens of thousands of jobs and hundreds of billions in new wealth.

          And God knows how much tax revenue. And it’s a gift that is going to keep on giving long into the future.

          Look at the factory in Texas, and the jobs created there.

          And look at what that loan has inspired, like Ford investing $11 billion to build battery factories and a truck plant in Kentucky.

          The success of the Tesla S sparked that, and the success of the Tesla S has a foundation in that loan overseen by Biden.

          Point me toward any one thing Trump attempted or achieved that comes anywhere close to that one loan by Biden to Tesla.

          The truth is, the sum total of everything Trump attempted and achieved don’t add up to that one loan by Biden to Tesla.

          That is proof that the Green New Deal is the Real Deal, and it’s the foundation of the American Jobs Proposal and the Infrastructure Plan.

          That’s MAGA. That’s vision and leadership and success.

          There’s more to Making America Great Again than parading around the proles in a stupid red hat.

          1. If the Democrats knew they didn’t cheat, they wouldn’t be so afraid of audits. You replace thought with a lot of words and mixed up statements. That is a sign of Stupidity, not intellectual ability.

      3. Ben, you’re an idiot! If you didn’t smell a rat in the election results, then you are obviously brain dead!

        1. The only rat I smell is morbidly obese, paints his wrinkly skin orange, wears a bad toupee and pompadour and resides at Mar-a-Lago. I believe the certifications by 50 Secretaries of State, the New York State Disciplinary Commission that detailed the lies told by Giuliani in the dozens of failed lawsuits, which is the reason his law license was suspended, Chris Krebs, head of US Cybersecurity, who said that 2020 was the most-secure election in US History, Bill Barr, former AG, who said there was no widespread voter fraud that could have affected the outcome of 2020, and all of the failed recounts.

          That’s one side of the ledger. What do you Trump disciples have to counter this? Nada. But, you have been conditioned as a disciple of Fox, OAN, News Max, Info Wars and Breitbart to disbelieve anything other than what pro-Trump media tell you. So, they keep stirring the pot, telling you that somehow 2020 results will be “decertified”, something that cannot be done, and to just “wait” because there’s going to be more “forensic audits”. You believe former crack and heroin addict, Mike Lindell, who has substituted his drug addiction for addiction to the Big Lie, and you believe the orange fool who lives in Mar-a-Lago, who is a proven, chronic liar. Most laughable of all is that you call those who don’t share your devotion “obviously brain dead”.

          1. Your son, Darrell Brooks, regrets he could not attend your thanksgiving turkey knowing you were holding a seat at the head of your table to honor him. Like mama like son

      4. Yup. Oh, by the way, the Biden Administration is creating a division of the Pentagon to investigate UFOs. I guess it’s a real “thing”, like the election fraud we all recognize.

        1. Biden created the UFO deal to mollify all the dingaling, Red State, ChemTrails, Deep State, Election Fraud, PizzaGate conspiracy theories.

          Biden is presdient and wants to represent everyone, even the brain-damaged.

          America survived Trump and the idiot 50% of the country who voted for him.

          Now it’s onward and upward.

          Biden said Make America California Again, and he’s right: Wealthy, progressive, productive, prosperous.

          1. “Biden is presdient and wants to represent everyone, even the brain-damaged.”

            In the process he is now only representing the “brain-damaged” and the Stupid.

  7. Relearning the futility of arguing with trolls.

    jeffsilberman posted about so attorneys fined by the court.

    Numerous people (including myself) attempted to engage in dialogue with him.

    jeffsilberman’s only response was to repeat his points and talk about Trump.

    Like talking to an idiot; one thought in his brain, no room for anything else.

    And look at the huge number of “anonymous” posts. The blog is starting to look like an idiot arguing with himself.

    The beauty of a familiar blog is that we learn enough to skip people like jeffsilberman (took me awhile) and the anonymous posts.

    1. i skip all of them for the most part. I am certain that a few of them are paid; you’d think people would realize the futility of that strategy now that so many are so tech savvy, the days of pimply young people holding all of those cards are over, but nope. My only exception is when they say something particularly egregious about the Professor who graciously allows them to post their idiocy on his site because such is the depth of his belief in our principles. If that ain’t irony, I don’t know what is. Most leftists are walking oxymorons. There are myriad jokes in there, but i’ll leave them to personal imaginations.

      1. “i skip all of them for the most part. ”

        James, I agree. I want to clarify to you and others that I sometimes post under Anonymous, but that is almost always when I am dealing with ATS, Jeff or one or two other crazies. I prefer to converse with my name, whether in agreement or disagreement. However, when I talk with that limited number of people, what I say is not informative. I do so anonymously to permit people like yourself to save time by not reading.

        I think the anonymous listing has hurt the integrity of blog comments. I see nothing in the anonymous comments that one cannot say using a name or alias and a fixed icon.

        The left is destroying free speech, and on the blog, they use the alias to deceive and dilute legitimate comments. I am sorry if any might have a dispute with me for posting under anonymous under those limited circumstances. The remedy is not to read anonymous postings, including my own, purposely written anonymously to be trashed so that it doesn’t take away time from those where time is very precious.

          1. The above is Anonymous the Stupid. He hides under an anonymous name and icon while also using other anonymous icons and pretend friends. He hates it when someone looks up what he wrote before and compares it to recent writings. They don’t match because he is a hypocrite and will say whatever he wants to promote an idea even if what he writes conflicts with a past thought or is a known lie.

            This response is one of those wasted exchanges that aren’t worth the time or effort. I will sign my name but list it as anonymous, so those who throw out time-wasters can also throw this one out.

            S. Meyer

            1. This guy is obsessed with people who post comments anonymously.

              He needs to find something else to do with his obviously empty life.

              1. Anonymous the Stupid, if I have an empty life yours must be worse. You are here more than anyone else. You don’t know what you are talking about and you are Stupid.

    2. Monument,

      I have asked you:

      “When you evidence your disgust with Trump’s Big Lie [that the election was stolen], I happily will share your disgust in Hunter’s apparent corruption.”

      I’m still waiting….

      1. Who cares about Hunter?

        He’s the troubled son of the president, but he’s not the president.

        I think Hunter suffers from CTE because that’s usually the case when behavior doesn’t make sense – and his doesn’t.

        1. Benji ; Hunter crackhead Biden is more than just the troubled drug and whore addicted son of joke biden and steppy son of dr silly jilly. He is the main conduit for folthy lucre for the joke biden syndicate family Klan. He makes sure daddy joke get’s his 10% so it does not go up juniors nose or in a whores bank account. And he makes sure uncle Jimbob gets his filthy lucre,,and auntie too. Remember he was distressed at having to be the bread winner for that whole klan of leeches. And to be on top of the inflow of chicom monies , Ukranian and russian funds…that’s a hard job laundering all that filthy lucre…real hard to where it makes people do drugs .
          So let’s give hunter the accountant a break eh….laundering grift is a hard full time job bruh !!!.

    1. Recovering lawyer says:

      “As someone once said – “enemy of the people.” Not far off.”

      So shoot me and get it over with.

  8. The singular American failure is and continues to be the judicial branch, with emphasis on the Supreme Court.

    The heinous “Waukesha Killer” should have been in prison, not out in public threatening Americans.

    Dictatorial “mandates” on “China Flu, 2019” lockdowns, masks and vaccinations should have been precluded by findings of unconstitutionality by the Supreme Court.

    The entire American welfare state should have been struck down by the Supreme Court in the legislative phase.

    The judicial branch is not elected and the only control on that branch of government, impeachment and conviction, is never imposed by Congress.

    Something has got to give.

  9. Was the “Waukesha Slaughter” of White Americans Black Privilege?

    Was the “Waukesha Slaughter” of White Americans Black Supremacy?

    1. Our institutions of higher learning have gone to hell because of idiots like you!! You are an embarrassment to humanity! You are the definition of an intelligent idiot!

      1. The guy responsible for Waukesha is an idiotic, drug-addled,brain-dead prole who is definitely going to prison for life.

        That is if the good people of Waukesha don’t storm the jail, tie up the sheriff and lynch the dude from a tree in the public square.

        1. Benji ; The human debris responsible for murdering 6 people and maiming a dozen more is the product of divisive race baiting being taught in our schools and the socialist dogma that has permeated our America. This “black thug kultur” embraced by the left with it’s central theme of white hate and communisim drivel is the root cause of psychos like this wisconsin mass murderer.He = the murderer is everything you noted but oh so much more…so much you refuse to acknowledge right down to his BLM love fest and embrace of violent fake black ‘kultur” .

  10. In politically correct America, dead black people from 50, 100, or 200 years ago seem to matter more
    than dead white people from Sunday.

  11. It is a violation of the First Amendment to remove a statue of Thomas Jefferson.
    Citizens have a right to receive whatever messages are put out by that statue.

  12. The black community is now a censorship bureau for white people.
    Everything that white people write, type, tweet, say, or otherwise express in any way must
    be pleasing to the eyes and ears of black people.
    What makes their eyes and ears worth pleasing more than mine?
    What if something they say or write does not please MY eyes and ears?

        1. I’ve got vision and the rest of the world needs bifocals.

          Where I Iive is too expensive and fancy for know-nothing proles, so I have to go online just to see how truly gullible and dumb the less than average American is.

          And it’s shocking.

          And it makes me glad I live in a place where gullible dopes aren’t comfortable.

          You people are astonishingly dumb and help me understand how Trump could have been elected.

          Have Americans always been this dumb, or has social media just exposed this level of brainlessness?

          1. Ben: thanks for all of your push-back and reason against the Trumpster crowd that loves to display the depth of their devotion. I don’t think being “dumb” explains Trump. Social scientists believe that devotion to Trump can best be explained by fear: non college educated whites who deeply resented the success of Barak Obama, and who were willing to believe the birther lies. They feel threatened by what they perceive as the loss of white privilege to educated women and minorities, plus economic changes like clean energy replacing things like coal (which Trump promised to “bring back” {hint: power companies are moving away from dirty, polluting coal}) and fewer factory type jobs due to things like robotics. Then, there’s changes in things like taking down statutes honoring Confederate military leaders, which they think somehow demeans their “heritage”. They feel threatened by the massive number of migrants that they fear will displace them. So, along comes Trump, a reality television performer who lies about being self-made billionaire, and who speaks to their racism and xenophobia when he calls migrants “vermin, breeders, murderers, rapists, and criminals”, for which he will build a “big, beautiful wall” that he will somehow force Mexico to pay for. He appeals to their misogyny when he insults women as “fat pigs” and claims to be entitled, due to his “fame” to grab them by their genitals if they are “beautiful”. He appeals to their xenophobia by promising to ban all Muslims from coming to the United States. When White Supremacists started a riot in Charlottesville, Trump praised them as “fine people”–he was speaking to them, so it’s no wonder that the insurrection he started included Neo-Nazis, White Supremacists, the 3%ers and the Proud Boys. Of course, his media had to lie about this, too, claiming that the FBI and “Antifa” really were the rioters. An invader who tried to breach the Speaker’s Lobby–the last barrier to the floor of the House–got killed after refusing to obey the command of Capitol Police to “cease and desist”, so now, she’s a martyr. It’s unbelievable how far alt-right media will go, and even more unbelievable that the devotees believe this sh*t.

            Then, there is the unprecedented pro-Trump media that constantly downplay his lies, failures and which endlessly attacks Democrats, especially certain ones, like AOC, Ilhan Omar because they are women of color–how dare they darken the halls of Congress? They don’t belong there–only white people should be our leaders. The disciples tune in with religious fervor to hear the latest spin by Hannity, Carlson, Levin, Sean Hannity and others, and they gobble it up. It never occurs to them that media that instructs them to disbelieve other media are not media at all–they are engaging in propaganda. They automatically believe that mainstream media lie and don’t report the “truth”, which is whatever they heard on their alt-right stations. Turley contributes to this by trying to create the fantasy of a “Hunter Biden scandal” that is being covered up by mainstream media, even though it is widely reported that the hard drive story was dreamed by by disgraced former lawyer Rudy Giuliani as a means to try to help Trump after he flopped so badly in the first presidential debate. Trump has indeed brought out the worst of America, and no matter how many lies he tells, now matter how many Americans died due to his COVID lies, no matter that he started an insurrection to try to keep the power he cheated to get, no matter how many impeachments, they will still believe because he speaks to their fears, insecurities and shortcomings. It is not just a sad reflection on America–it’s a threat to the very heart of American democracy. Trump is a wannabe dictator, and he has lots of devoted media to spread his lies and to attack his opponents. The Republican party that used to stand for things like family values, honesty, integrity, and fiscal responsibility has capitulated to this person because they continue to lose the support of the American people. They want to be a minority majority. So, to improve their odds of taking over Congress and maybe the White House, Republicans are feverishly gerrymandering, passing laws to make it harder for probable-Democrats to vote, and to allow valid votes to be discarded, which is what Trump tried to do with Brad Raffensberger. They threaten and harass election officials, many of whom have quit, so they can put in their Q-Anon types willing to change votes and to suppress voters. America is on dangerous ground right now because of a malignant narcissist and his appeal to a sizeable minority that is gullible because of their fears and insecurities which makes them receptive to his lies. Once we lose the ability for one person/one vote to serve as our means of self-governance, we are on the path to a dictatorship, and, sadly, that’s where we’re heading.

          2. Benji ; You are blind , lacking vision…you march with dystopian pravda…America does not require your divisive socialism . You only bring failure front and center just like joke biden et al.

      1. Benji ; Literally nobody cares of the divisive racism and socialism you worship. And we will expose and speak out against that tyranny of the leftist mob.
