America’s State Media: The Blackout on Biden Corruption is Truly “Pulitzer-Level Stuff”

Below is my column in The Hill on the continued media blackout on evidence of influence peddling and corrupt practices by the Biden family. The coverage of the recent disclosure of dozens of LLCs and bank accounts used to funnel up to $10 million to Biden family members captured the growing concerns over a de facto state media in the United States. Under the current approach to journalism, it is the New York Times that receives a Pulitzer for a now debunked Russian collusion story rather than the New York Post for a now proven Hunter Biden laptop story.

Here is the column:

This week, Rep. Byron Donalds (R-Fla.) tried to do the impossible. After he and his colleagues presented a labyrinth of LLC shell companies and accounts used to funnel as much as $10 million to Biden family members, Donalds tried to induce the press to show some interest in the massive corruption scandal. “For those in the press, this is easy pickings & Pulitzer-level stuff right here,” he pleaded.

The response was virtually immediate. Despite showing nine Biden family members allegedly receiving funds from corrupt figures in Romania, China and other countries, The New Republic quickly ran a story headlined “Republicans Finally Admit They Have No Incriminating Evidence on Joe Biden.”

For many of us, it was otherworldly. A decade ago, when then-Vice President Joe Biden was denouncing corruption in Romania and Ukraine and promising action by the United States, massive payments were flowing to his son Hunter Biden and a variety of family members, including Biden grandchildren.

Last year, I wrote a column about how the media were preparing a difficult “scandal implosion” to protect the Bidens and themselves from the backlash from disclosures of this influence peddling operation.

The brilliance of the Biden team was that it invested the media in this scandal at the outset by burying the laptop story as “Russian disinformation” before the election. That was, of course, false, but it took two years for most major media outlets to admit that the laptop was authentic.

But the media then ignored what was on that “authentic laptop.” Hundreds of emails detailed potentially criminal conduct and raw influence peddling in foreign countries.

When media outlets such as the New York Post confirmed the emails, the media then insisted that there was no corroboration of the influence peddling payments and no clear proof of criminal conduct. It entirely ignored the obvious corruption itself.

Now that the House has released corroboration in actual money transfers linking many in the Biden family, the media is insisting that this is no scandal because there is no direct proof of payments to Joe Biden.

Putting aside that this is only the fourth month of an investigation, the media’s demand of a direct payment to President Biden is laughably absurd. The payments were going to his family, but he was the object of the influence peddling.

The House has shown millions of dollars going to at least nine Bidens like dividends from a family business. As a long-time critic of influence peddling among both Republicans and Democrats, I have never seen the equal of the Bidens.

The whole purpose of influence peddling is to use family members as shields for corrupt officials. Instead of making a direct payment to a politician, which could be seen as a bribe, you can give millions to his or her spouse or children.

Moreover, these emails include references to Joe Biden getting a 10 percent cut of one Chinese deal. It also shows Biden associates warning not to use Joe Biden’s name but to employ code names like “the Big Guy.” At the same time, the president and the first lady are referenced as benefiting from offices and receiving payments from Hunter.

Indeed, Hunter complains that his father is taking half of everything that he is raking in.

None of that matters. The New York Times ran a piece headlined, “House Republican Report Finds No Evidence of Wrongdoing by President Biden.” That is putting aside evidence against all the family members around Joe Biden. It also ignored that other evidence clearly shows Biden lied about his family not receiving Chinese funds or that he never had any knowledge of his son’s business dealings.

The fact is that the Times may indeed be trying for another Pulitzer Prize. The newspaper previously won a Pulitzer for the now debunked Russian collusion story. It was later revealed that this story was based on a dossier funded by the Clinton campaign and placed in the media by Clinton officials. Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Bob Woodward warned the co-winner The Washington Post that the story was unreliable but was ignored. The Pulitzer Committee refused to withdraw the award.

Walter Duranty

What Donalds fails to appreciate is that this is sometimes how Pulitzers are made. Roughly 100 years ago, New York Times reporter Walter Duranty won the Pulitzer for his coverage of the Soviet Union despite serving as an apologist for Joe Stalin. Duranty refused to report on actual conditions from mass killing to starvation in the “worker’s paradise.”

Thus, when the Soviets were starving to death as many as 10 million Ukrainians, the Times ran a Duranty story with the headline “Russians Hungry but Not Starving.” He not only spinned Stalin labor camps that killed millions but also attacked reporters who sought to uncover the truth.

Years later, Ukraine and various groups demanded that Duranty’s prize be rescinded, but the Committee insisted that there was no “clear and convincing evidence of deliberate deception.”

What is most impressive about this week is that all but a few outlets seem to be angling for the next Duranty Pulitzer.

In discussing modern Russian propaganda, researchers at the Rand Corporation described it as having “two distinctive features: high numbers of channels and messages and a shameless willingness to disseminate partial truths or outright fictions.”

Sound familiar?

Today we are seeing a much more dangerous phenomenon. The coverage this week has all the markings of a state media. The consistent spin. The almost universal lack of details. The absurd distinctions.

It is the blindside of our First Amendment, which addresses the classic use of state authority to coerce and control media. It does not address a circumstance in which most of the media will maintain an official line by consent rather than coercion.

The media simply fails to see the story. Of course, it can always look to the president for enlightenment. Just before his son received a massive transfer of money from one of the most corrupt figures in Romania, Biden explained to that country why corruption must remain everyone’s focus. “Corruption is a cancer, a cancer that eats away at a citizen’s faith in democracy,” he said. “Corruption is just another form of tyranny.”

It is just a shame that no one wants to cover it.

  1. Well the big guy has one thing on his side. Age. The older you get the less a life sentence matters.

  2. Amid startling allegations of a bribery scheme that involved foreign nationals giving the Biden family millions of dollars in exchange for policy changes, the President spoke to journalists this morning on the White House lawn. During his talk, he offered them money in exchange for not talking about the bribery.

    “Listen newspaper people, just drop the story, ok? Please? I’ll give you five dollars,” said the President, fumbling around in his pocket. “This is a nothingburger! I’ll give this crisp new five-dollar bill to whoever agrees to stop talking about my highly lucrative bribery operation! Ooh! And I have some gum here, too! Who wants a delicious stick of gum? Come on, man!”

    Sources say Biden pocketed $10 million during his time as Vice President from foreign interests in exchange for special policy considerations. The sources then stopped talking after Biden bribed them.

    Babylon Bee

  3. Jonathan: Sorry, but there is no “state media”. The closest we came was during the Trump presidency when Fox was the cheer leader for the Trump WH. Fox hosts worked with the Trump administration to coordinate talking points. Even after the 2020 election Fox echoed Trump’s false claims about “massive voter fraud”. That ended in the Dominion settlement in which Rupert Murdock had to admit all his hosts had been lying! We know what “state media” looks like. It’s name is Fox News!

    And what is your complaint? That neither the NY Times nor the Washington Post will treat all your claims, and those of Chairman Comer, seriously about the alleged Biden family “vast corruption and influence peddling” scandal. All your alleged claims about Biden have gained no traction in the mainstream media. And you are mad. You are like the 2 yr old sitting in his high chair, screaming and pounding his spoon on the kitchen table–while the rest of the family ignores his temper tantrum.

    And what has GOP Chair Comer come up with? His news conference last Wednesday was filled with a lot speculation and conjecture but no solid evidence. Comer claims he has a “whistleblower” that will expose everything about the Biden family corruption. And what happened to the “whistleblower”? On Fox yesterday Comer admitted to host Maria Bartiromo: “Well, unfortunately, we can’t track down the informant. We’re hopeful that the informant is still there. The whistleblower knows the informant. The whistleblower is very credible”. Bartiromo was incredulous because she has continued to back Comer’s investigation–unlike Steve Doocy. Bartiromo responded: “Did you say that the whistleblower or the informant is now missing?”. Comer: “Remember, these informants are kind of in the spy business, so they don’t make a habit of being seen a lot or high-profile or anything like that”. Comer further told Bartiromo that the 10 people his Committee has have ” good knowledge with respect to the Bidens” but are “currently in court, they’re currently in jail, or they’re currently missing”. Say what??

    So there you have it. What Comer has is a person who says he knows a person or persons who have all the evidence against the Biden family but that person or persons are either in jail or have gone missing! This little “investigation” by Comer gets more bizarre every day! Compare Comer’s so far empty handed witch hunt exercise with the Jan. Committee serious investigation that conducted more than 1,000 interviews with over 30 actually testifying. And Special Counsel Jack Smith is no doubt using much of the evidence developed by the Jan. 6 Committee in his serious investigation of the crimes of Donald Trump.. And you wonder why the NY Times or the Washington Post won’t treat your conspiracy claims or those of Comer seriously? I think you need a reality check!

    1. “You can’t convince a believer of anything; for their belief is not based on evidence, it’s based on a deep seated need to believe” Carl Sagan…………Turley wrote this piece for their NEED to believe.

      1. Fish Wings: thank you. This is why I refer to them as “disciples”–their beliefs are based on faith, not fact, and no facts can shake their faith. What is stunning to me is WHY anyone would have faith in an obnoxious, lying braggart like Trump who nearly destroyed our economy, damaged our pubic health and confidence in our scientists, who made a fool of himself internationally, who actually praised a murderous dictator who invaded a country, and, via surrogates who believed his lie about his “victory” being “stolen”, tried to take over our government,because he can’t admit he lost an election. How anyone seeing this pig stand in front of an American flag and not get nauseous is a mystery to me.

    2. Dennis, please tell me your real name is Boris Badinoff. And you think we’re the equivalent of moose and squirrel.

  4. Surely we can find a Hollywood producer and directory to produce a film showing Biden openly lying about not knowing about his family’s business dealings and the emails and bank records prove the lie.

    Instead we get a quorum of morons making allegations with smoke but no smoking gun.

    The real crime (against the public and republic) is that no special prosecutor has been appointed to prove or disprove, or find insufficient evidence of actual crimes.

    I was in favor of anti-Trump prosecutors and partisan committees going after him, but only within the law. If he did something illegal, he isn’t above the law. But the same is true of Biden – anti Biden prosecutors and partisan committees going after him is ideal. Otherwise you have claims of sweeping the Truth under the proverbial rug.


    Aldrich Ames was convicted of espionage (i.e. treason) for acts detrimental to his country and “…adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort” in an undeclared war.

    Joe Biden received money from Chinese citizens and companies for acts detrimental to his country and for “…adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort” in an undeclared war.

    “Chinese Nationals Hid the Source of the Money:Chinese nationals and companies with significant ties to Chinese intelligence and the Chinese Communist Party hid the source of the funds paid out to the Bidens by layering domestic limited liability companies. The Biden family and associates’ activities in coordination with Chinese nationals and their corporate entities appear to be an attempt to engage in financial deception. Multiple Biden family members received money from the Chinese after it passed through an associate’s account. Additionally, Hunter Biden received money directly into his company’s account from a Chinese-controlled entity.”

    – House Committee on Oversight and Accountability Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.)

    Article 3, Section 3

    Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.

    Article 2, Section 4

    The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors

  6. Looks like all the earnest readers of Turley got themselves some trolls. Don’t let them get you down or gaslight you. We are in a war, you know the one, Good vs. Evil. You know trolls are evil when they argue semantics with you and expect you to receive their replies as gospel. Like one reader observes of the political clown show “Nothing to see here,” if there wasn’t anything to see here. why would Turley’s column attract trolls to shut everybody in the replies down?

    It’s twisted and they are abusive. That’s why I am allergic to shillfish.

      1. CNN and NBC contributor Noah Berlatsky is the Communications Director for Prostasia, a not-for-profit group that is reportedly attempting to legitimize pedophilia under the guise of helping children.

        1. It’s not attempting to legitimize pedophilia. It combats pedophilia and is quite explicit that “there is never any justification for adults to have sexual contact with children or traffic in child sexual abuse imagery (child pornography).” What part of “never” don’t you understand?

      2. NBC contributor Noah Berlatsky is now the Communications Director for Prostasia, a not-for-profit group that is reportedly attempting to legitimize pedophilia under the guise of helping children. As part of his work with the group, he has written about legitimizing “trans children,” conducted interviews about the positive impact of pornography on children, and how the best way to help children who are trafficked into the sex trade is to “decriminalize the sex industry.”

        Prostasia offers pedophiles a MAP Support Club, which “is a peer support chat for minor attracted people who are fundamentally against child sexual abuse and committed to never harm children, and is a safe space to have peer support in times of trouble.” This group is for people who are aged 13 and up.

        Prostasia bills itself as “a new kind of child protection organization” that has a different approach to protecting children than the current methods of social work and law enforcement, saying that these approaches “are less effective than they should be, because they are driven by emotion rather than evidence.”

      3. “The Nazis also proclaimed themselves to be good, but they weren’t good either.”

        Yet we note it is the left that adopts the heinous elements of the Nazis. Censorship, authoritarian big government, control over industry, press control, etc.

  7. Few Americans believe the liberal media, 50% believe they purposely deceive us, which shocked even Gallup, a liberal polling firm: talk about detached from reality. Stop ascribing power or ability to persuade anyone.

    “Trust in media is so low that half of Americans now believe that news organizations deliberately mislead them”

    The survey, released Wednesday by Gallup and the Knight Foundation, goes beyond others that have shown a low level of trust in the media to the startling point where many believe there is an intent to deceive.

    Asked whether they agreed with the statement that national news organizations do not intend to mislead, 50% said they disagreed. Only 25% agreed, the study found.

    Similarly, 52% disagreed with a statement that disseminators of national news “care about the best interests of their readers, viewers and listeners,” the study found. It said 23% of respondents believed the journalists were acting in the public’s best interests.

    “That was pretty striking for us,” said Sarah Fioroni, a consultant for Gallup. The findings showed a depth of distrust and bad feeling that go beyond the foundations and processes of journalism, she said.


  8. Professor, you state, “Instead of making a direct payment to a politician, which could be seen as a bribe, you can give millions to his or her spouse or children.”

    Under the FCPA payments to immediate family members are the same as payments to governmental officials. See how the “Justice” Department fined Chase for far less egregious actions and when the family members actually worked!

  9. These are the bank records of payments to the Bidens with money from China and Romania filtered through LLC companies. Hunter was taking this money and paying Joe Bidens bills as he clearly states on his laptop. What motivation would Hunter have for lying about paying Joe’s bills? It has all the earmarks of Chinese and Romanian election interference to me. Laptop Russian interference insinuations were without proof. Now we have proof of foreign nations supporting the Bidens and the MSM refuses to cover it. You know, the CNN, MSNBC, New York Times etc. news outlets who have the audacity to ask you to watch and read what they produce. At the Pulitzer Prize ceremony it will be announced that The New York Times will receive the prize for a story it didn’t write. It will be rewarded in the new blank page category.

  10. Allison Gill: “Trump-appointed US Attorney David Weiss has been investigating the Bidens for over 4 YEARS. NO LIMITS were placed on his scope. If there were ANY laws broken by ANYONE named Biden, you’d know. All they found are a couple potential tax & gun crimes on Hunter. THAT’S IT. … His scope was to investigate ANY crimes he found.”

    1. Anonymous, you just said that there is no evidence of crimes being committed by Bidens and then you said they are investigating Hunter for tax crimes and the illegal possession of a gun. The tax records are real and the proof of the purchase of a gun by Hunter is real and you say no big deal because evading taxes and illegal gun possession are just petty crimes anyway. Your comment is the common I shot the Sheriff but I did not shoot the Deputy defense. The length of your reach is very short and once again your slow on the draw.

      1. Tit, you’re a liar. It’s your favorite way of trolling.

        Neither Allison Gill nor I claimed “there is no evidence of crimes being committed by Bidens.” Allison Gill, who I quoted, was quite clear that “they found … a couple potential tax & gun crimes on Hunter.”

        “you say no big deal”

        You lie like a rug. I said nothing of the sort.

        Perhaps you lie so much because you recognize that if you were honest, your argument would be weak. Or perhaps you just get off on lying. I don’t expect you to change. It is your nature to lie in response to liberals.

        1. Aninny, your “fake” moniker is a lie. Your essence is a lie. You are a lie. You are a coward. Don’t write here anymore, cease and desist, until you are man enough and creditable enough to provide some form of consistent identification. The concept has always been that a man with honor, integrity and conviction shows up in the public square and openly exercises his freedom of speech, exposing it to the light of truth and fact.

          1. An anonymous commenter complaining about another anonymous commenter. Irony alert.

            1. ATS, that wasn’t me but the other anonymous was correct.

              “You are a coward. Don’t write here anymore, cease and desist, until you are man enough and creditable enough to provide some form of consistent identification. The concept has always been that a man with honor, integrity and conviction shows up in the public square and openly exercises his freedom of speech, exposing it to the light of truth and fact.”

              If you take argument with me that has meaning, I will surely post under my alias though you will not.

    2. David Weiss has been investigating the Bidens for over 4 YEARS. NO LIMITS were placed on his scope.

      Thats a lie. Whistle blowers have told congress he was limited, and Bidens were OFF LIMITS

      1. It’s not a lie. Weiss is investigating potential Hunter Biden crimes and any other crimes he comes across during his investigation.

        1. Where will Hunter be tried but in a communist (liberal, progressive, socialist, democrat, RINO, AINO) court where he will have his wrist slapped and be set free?

          John “Dudley Do-Right” Durham was prosecuting the most egregious abuse of power and prodigious political crime in U.S. history, the Obama Coup D’etat in America.

          The global communist Deep Deep State “Swamp” steered “justice” into the United States District Court for the District of Columbia.

          Game over.

          Why does an impartial judicial branch support and promote “venue corruption” and allow pro-American, conservative cases to be directed into the judicial refuse disposal site?

          Answer: Because it is part and parcel of the progressives’ progress toward the ensconcement of the “dictatorship of the proletariat.”

          Thank you so much, “Crazy Abe,” for shredding the U.S. Constitution in the name of Karl Marx and commencing the incremental implementation of the principles of communism.

  11. Move along there’s nothing to see here. Don’t pay any attention to those bank records showing payments to Biden family members from China and Romania. Oh the $25,000 to Hallie Biden (school counselor) was just payment for advice to schools in children in China. Nothing to see here so move along. You say there are actual bank records showing the transfer of funds to Biden family members for doing nothing? So what. Move along move along. No no no don’t show the bank records to me I don’t want to see them!!!

    1. TIT: where’s the proof tying Joe Biden to anything criminal? What about the $640 million Jared and Ivaka took for “services” from foreigners while the pig was wrongfully occupying the White House?

      1. Gigi, you stated it perfectly. The Trump children did do business with China and marketed their products in America just like Nike. They made money by doing something but Hunter Biden received money from China and Romania for doing nothing. You didn’t read the Professor’s entire post so it’s obvious that you didn’t see the bank records proving that Hunter and other Biden family members received funds from Romania and China. I understand. You have too much at stake psychologically to be informed by the facts. Houston Gigi has a problem please send help right away. Her wackadoodle is wackadoodleing out of control.

  12. Unfortunately the performance actors who have to participate in this tragedy, remind me of an elephant that went into labour and delivered a mouse!

    Professor, I don’t want to imagine that you (and Maria Bartiromo) still haven’t noticed that the “oversight” is playing the game of pretending, hold hearings, and create soundbites (“nine of ten people that we’ve identified… they’re 1 of 3 things: They’re either currently in court. They’re currently in jail. Or they’re currently missing”). The “oversight” ignores the end point (“we are going to end up in court”. If they make it to “take off” the clock doesn’t permit a landing in time), misses the bottom line ( $$$) , doesn’t actually see the subject matter (what did they do for $$$), and never actually applies accountability toward what might be discovered.

    Let me come up with just one example:

    * On 3/17/23, the Chairman dropped a bomb that “from 2015 to 2017, Biden family members – Hunter Biden, James Biden, Hallie Biden, and an unknown “Biden” – and their companies collectively received over $1.3 million in payments from accounts related to Rob Walker. Most of the payments to the Biden family came after Rob Walker received a $3 million wire from a Chinese energy company.”
    * On 11/18/20 Senators Grassley & Johnson revealed in a supplement of their report “Hunter Biden, Burisma and Corruption: The Impact on U.S. Government Policy and Related
    Concerns”: On 2/23/17, and 3/1/17 a Shanghai-based company called State Energy HK Limited sent two wires, each in the amount of $3M to a bank account for Robinson Walker LLC. [1]

    Those how like to follow the $$$, here we are [2] (to be continued on Thursday)!

  13. “Things get curiouser and curiouser!”, cried Alice. What do four banks, over $10 million from foreign nationals and their related companies, and 25 Biden family limited liability companies have in common?

    It’s the stuff that once caused law enforcement to salivate and chomp at the bit to get involved answering. Congress is forever tied up in politics and can conduct only limited investigations under the best of circumstances. We will not fully know the answer until a nonpartisan DOJ and an equally nonpartisan FBI begin and conclude investigations. Why have they not acted this time? The answer again is politics and partisanship; always politics and partisanship.

    1. “We will not fully know the answer until a nonpartisan DOJ and an equally nonpartisan FBI begin and conclude investigations.”

      * As these wire transfers are well known for years, what did AG Sessions/Barr, Speaker Ryan & Majority Leader McConnell do the time they sat in drivers seat?
      * What did Acting AG Rod Rosenstein, registered Republican & President Trump nominee do? Why did “Tea Party Patriots Action” launch an attack ad against him [1]?
      * What did FBI Director Christopher Wray, a registered Republican & President Trump nominee do [2]?


  14. You know Professor Turley has hit a sore spot when the remarkably well-misinformed ATS pops in to ”fact check’ him with references to NYT and WaPo, the propaganda organs of the alphabet agencies.

      1. How fortunate you were to draw the Turley card. The readers easy pickin’s for your astute observations. Shut everybody down and show them how stupid and bias they are and what a brilliant gaslighter yoiu are.

        Ah, the smell of shills in the morning – stink.

        Allergic to shillfish anyways. GFY

        Wait for it everybody, the big barrage – They hate this – and can’t keep there mouths shut…lol

        Shills are stupid.

        Oh, here’s some good reading,,,

    1. Young: Those who spent millions indoctrinating disciples like you not to trust mainstream media, are heaving a sigh of relief. The money was well-spent. You bought into the lies about mainstream media being untrustworthy, even though these outlets are well-respected and their reporters have won the Pulitzer Prize.

      1. Were the many stories about Hunter’s laptop being Russian Disinformation true? NO

        Were the many stores about the Covid vaccine stopping Covid in its tracks true? NO

        Were the stories about masks being effective true? NO

        Were the stories about the ‘vaccine’ being safe true? NO

        Were the stories that it was impossible for Covid to have escaped from the Wuhan lab true? NO

        Thank you for the opportunity to opine.

    1. “Gun Violence” – I once had a terriblly violent gun. Would hop off the table and start shooting people at random. Had to put it down….
      Soon they will be calling a fist-fight ‘Hand violence”. The goal of all this wordplay? To remove responsibilty from the individual and redirect it.

      1. A violent person with a gun is more likely to kill someone than a violent person without a gun.

        1. Otoh, a violent person with a gun is less likely to kill someone with 155m HIMARS precision guided missiles.

          *also see MAD (mutually assured destruction)

            1. It’s not the tool; it’s the culture. More than 50% of ALL murders are committed by blacks. It isn’t a plague of gun violence. It is a plague of black violence.

              1. Take a close look at the stats, the one I saw heard was it was only 1% of the black males that have been committing already 50% of all the murders. I think blacks only make up about 13% of the gen pop & about half are women.

                1. Oky1,

                  Yes, so about 7% of the population, black males, accounts for more than 50% of all murders in the country.

                  No wonder race baiter, Jessee Jackson, admitted he was relieved to discover the footsteps behind him in the night were of a white man.

                  A young black man had a better chance of surviving as a slave than he does as one of the feral beasts prowling the streets of Chicago today.

                  Black crime is a serious problem in this country and we need to stop blaming it on guns, knives or slavery. It’s the people.

      2. Whimsicalmama,
        Just the other day, I had finished mounting a scope to my new rifle when out of nowhere, all of a sudden, the rile . . . just sat there. At no time did it commit a robbery, hold up a bank, knock over a liquor store, or commit a mass shooting.
        Is this rifle more morally responsible than those guns that committed all those shootings in places like Chicago? Baltimore? DC? LA? New Orleans? St. Louis?
        The rifle has no means to commit those kind of actions. It cannot commit any actions as it doe not have the means to.
        It requires a human being to do things like load it, take it to a place to be robbed, or commit a mass shooting.
        Otherwise, it just sits there.

    2. Mother’s day shootings in Chicago.
      A Democratic Party run city
      With strict gun laws.
      This is similar to other large Democrat run cities.
      It was a peaceful Mother’s Day

  15. Nature has many echo chambers, all which return muffled duplication, sometimes in quantity. You can always be assured the echo will repeat your request.

  16. The MSM obeys the big money. The money wants a Leftist narrative that helps the Democrats. Part of that money is from big corporate advertisers, the other part is from the government itself. Right wing media cannot make money from subscriptions because no one will pay. However, left wingers will pay for NYT and WaPo. Otherwise, Media makes money from advertising. If you control the ad dollars, you control the Media. It is that simple.
