BIDEN EVIDENCE MOUNTS WHILE FORCES WITHIN AMERICA "MEDDLE"

This weekend, in an appearance on JUSTICE WITH JUDGE JEANINE, I made it clear that there are people right here in America deliberately trying to manipulate the 2020 election. This was in the context of Big Tech’s effort to shut down free speech and censor the very real story of Joe Biden and his son, and I said I’m much more worried about Silicon Valley than I am the Russians. Silicon Valley has done much more than Russia have. I said the Russians might’ve put their thumb on the scale in the elections, but Silicon Valley takes the fat woman and sits her right in the middle of the scale and tells her not to get up.

That’s not intended as a jab to any woman --- or man, Lord help me --- who’d like to lose some pounds. It’s just to make the point of what the anti-Trump forces are doing. I also said that if it weren’t for former acting Director of National Intelligence Ric Grenell and current DNI John Ratcliffe, we wouldn’t be finding out much about it.

Thanks largely to them, we’re learning that it’s not just Big Tech trying to silence the Hunter Biden story. It’s actually people within our own government, particularly the FBI, who were putting all their weight on the scale to protect the Bidens and damage Trump. Much of this has to do with the laptop of Hunter Biden’s that curiously ended up being hoarded by the FBI in late 2019 (impeachment time!) and for months afterwards.

As usual, it’s left to the Senate and Republicans in the House to take this information and find out what they can. Sen. Ron Johnson, who chairs the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, sent a letter this weekend to Pete Kadrik of Blue Star Strategies –- a Democrat-led firm that lobbied for corrupt energy company Burisma –- saying that the company hadn’t been completely responsive to a subpoena issued last May for all records relating to their work for Burisma Holdings since January of 2013. (As you know, Burisma paid the inexperienced Hunter Biden big bucks to be on their board of directors.) Sen. Johnson told Mr. Kadrik that one document in particular had been withheld, one that they became aware of on October 15.

This missing document is an email providing an account of a December 2, 2015, conference call that was hosted by the White House to discuss Joe Biden’s upcoming trip to Ukraine. As Sen. Johnson told Maria Bartiromo on FOX NEWS SUNDAY, that was the trip during which they believe Biden must’ve given the Ukrainian president and prime minister the ultimatum he later bragged about: Fire head prosecutor Viktor Shokin (who was looking into Burisma) or lose $1 billion of aid. Johnson’s committee never got this document, and they want to know why.

The reason they became aware of the conference call is that there’s a reference to it and to a memo about it from the Blue Star Strategies team on the hard drive of Hunter Biden’s laptop, and they want to be able to verify this.

The email on the hard drive says, “This morning the White House hosted a conference call regarding the Vice President’s upcoming trip to Ukraine. Attached is a memo from the Blue Star Strategies team with the minutes of that call, which outlined the trip’s agenda and addressed several questions regarding U.S. policy toward Ukraine.”

Of course, Maria brought up what we’ve all been wondering ever since the NEW YORK POST broke their the laptop story: Why, if the FBI had this laptop in December of 2019, during the impeachment of President Trump, did they sit on it, when it contained evidence that showed Trump was justified in asking President Zelensky to investigate?

The computer store owner said he tried to give the laptop to the FBI but they initially didn’tt seem interested. (According to Devin Nunes, ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, this man wanted to give it to them SPECIFICALLY because it was relevant to the impeachment of Trump.) But in December, he was served by FBI agent Joshua Wilson (who, perhaps tellingly, has specialized for five years in child pornography cases) with a grand jury subpoena to turn it over, which he did. The store owner, as you know, had the presence of mind to copy the hard drive first and, after hearing nothing back from the FBI, took a copy to the Senate. Sen. Johnson’s committee contacted the FBI to ask if they could verify anything about the laptop and its contents. After hearing nothing back in a couple of days, Sen. Johnson wrote to the FBI.

"The FBI has a duty,” he told Maria, “to inform us if they believe this is, maybe, Russian disinformation. They should give us a defensive briefing. They should tell us about that.” And if the store owner is trying to pass off something that isn’t real –- which is a crime –- the FBI should tell them that as well.

But here’s the key: No one, even Biden’s campaign, has said these emails are fake. If they were, you know they’d proclaim that. Considering, then, that these are genuine and that they would've been extremely relevant to the impeachment case against Trump, why did the FBI sit on them? Were they covering up to protect the Biden family, or were they withholding exculpatory evidence against the President during his sham impeachment?

Given the way the FBI has been operating for at least the past several years, my guess is that it’s both. It’s like that old commercial, “Certs is a candy mint, AND a breath mint!”

Sen. Johnson also brought up the totally separate email evidence uncovered by investigative reporter Peter Schweizer that we reported on last week. “This requires serious investigation,” he said, “and the fact that the mainstream media is suppressing this information from the American public is a scandal in and of itself.”

Agreed. So what’s it gonna take to get all that weight off the scales of justice? President Trump must put all the power he has into play. He can start inside the government, at the very top, with FBI Director Chris Wray and CIA Director Gina Haspel, who both should be sent packing.

Much more will come out over the next couple of weeks. (This is why early voting is such a bad idea.) There are reportedly three laptops in the FBI’s possession: Hunter Biden’s, another from his business partner Devon Archer, and the third from...Hunter’s psychiatrist. Does the FBI really have THAT? It’s not likely they would unless they’re looking at charges for child pornography/sexual abuse.

Steve Bannon has apparently been in charge of the “roll-out plan” for the evidence, so he must already know what's coming and when. Here’s what he says we can expect.

And here’s Rudy Giuliani’s preview of coming attractions.

Finally, here's the computer repair shop owner's story, as told by Rudy Giuliani to Mark Levin on Sunday.

SPOT-ON COMMENT FROM CHARLIE KIRK

From Charlie Kirk on THE NEXT REVOLUTION w/Steve Hilton:

"Joe Biden represents the corporatist fusion of the trillion-dollar companies merging with the federal government. The multi-trillion-dollar tech companies in Silicon Valley will run our country if Joe Biden becomes President...This election is much more than an election. It is a decision of a world view and the direction of our country, whether you want the fate of America to be in [in the hands of ] the middle class workers or in the small-set ruling class. That is what is at stake..."

ICYMI: SCIENCE QUESTION

If a powerful political family commits massive corruption and influence-peddling and most of the media refuse to report it, and social media censors anyone from talking about it, does the corruption and influence-peddling still exist? Yes, and it will only get worse if the source makes it all the way to the White House, which is the goal of all that silence and censorship.

For the record, the Media Research Center has been keeping tabs. Over the two days (Wednesday and Thursday) when the Hunter Biden story was (against all odds) breaking, there was a total of 92 hours of news broadcast on ABC, CBS and NBC, the two townhalls and 18 hours a day each on CNN and MSNBC. Out of that 92 hours, less than 10 minutes was devoted to the Hunter Biden story. That included zero minutes on ABC and CNN.

But maybe they were just afraid to bring it up to Joe Biden for fear he’d bite their heads off. Bo Erickson of CBS actually asked Biden, “What is your response to the New York Post story about your son, sir?” Biden called it a “smear campaign,” then went off on Erickson personally, saying, “I know you’d ask it. I have no response, it’s another smear campaign, right up your alley, those are the questions you always ask.”

Well, at least he didn’t call him a “dog-faced pony soldier.” And for the record, reporting on potential high-level government corruption backed by firsthand email evidence is not a “smear.” An example of a “smear” would be if you kept accusing someone of calling neo-Nazis “very fine people,” even after that claim had been repeatedly debunked.

While there’s not much that can be done about the TV networks' blatant bias and dereliction of journalistic duty, the social media billionaires are about to learn that they don’t control the public’s freedom of speech. In addition to the demands to come in and “talk” to the Senate, they’ve been hit with an FEC complaint by the Republican National Committee for making an illegal “in-kind” contribution to the Biden campaign by shutting down discussion of the growing scandal.

THE STATE OF JOURNALISM IN 2020

Daniel Greenfield at Frontpage.com sums up the state of journalism in 2020 with a single headline, on an article analyzing a Washington Post story about George Floyd:

“Washington Post Blames ‘Systemic Racism’ for George Floyd Robbing a Latino Woman at Gunpoint.”

It’s well worth reading to see how the Post (and by extension, virtually every mainstream media outlet) twists logic like a pretzel to arrive at the conclusion that America is so racist, racist, racist, nobody is personally responsible for anything they do, unless they’re white. One of the best parts is how WaPo claims that as a child, Floyd wanted to be a Supreme Court Justice, but because of America’s racism, he just kept getting arrested for drugs, theft and armed robbery.

Greenfield then points out that there is a black man on the Supreme Court who has no arrest record (Clarence Thomas), and the Washington Post did everything in its power to keep him from being confirmed.

WHO WARNS AGAINST ECONOMIC DAMAGE FROM LOCKDOWNS

“The Science Is Settled!” The World Health Organization, having previously warned countries about the dangers of reopening too quickly, has now announced that they “do not advocate lockdowns as the primary means of control of this virus.” They say the lockdowns are “making poor people an awful lot poorer,” and could lead to a doubling of poverty and child malnutrition.

HAMMER-AND-SICKLE FOLKS ARE FICKLE

Sorry, John Bolton, your new friends on the left already hate you again. Why? Because it’s not enough to smear Donald Trump, you also have to endorse Joe Biden. And that’s more than even Bolton can stomach.

REVEALING MUGSHOTS

Here's a collection of mugshots of all the Black Lives Matter protesters arrested in Portland on a recent night for allegedly showing up in body armor with intent to cause mayhem. See if you notice something they all have in common, and surprisingly, it’s not nose rings or blue hair highlights.

    Governor, Folks had better take this election DEADLY serious and vote for Donald Trump & Mike Pence and all Republicans. The Democrats are out to take over this country and turn it into a socialist disaster. This isn't election partisan talk! It is reality! Your freedoms are ON THE LINE! Period! We have a Criminal running for President in Joe Biden. He has colluded with Russians and more importantly the Chinese Communist Party. He is morally corrupt in every way! I can write a encyclopedia on the vicious scumbucket acts of the criminal democrats, Lamestream media and liberal deep state actors. What he has done with all these foreign powers disqualifies him to be president. Now the decision is yours. Are you going turn this country over to a criminal liar who is and has criminally used his position as Vice President, who will turn this country into a socialist communist hellhole! Vote for freedom and making America Great Again! There is only one choice and that is Donald J Trump, Mike Pence and vote straight Republican! Vote and do it in person. And one other thing, I don't care what the polls say, they are suppression polls to get you to not vote, or what the liberals say, Vote, Vote, Vote! Take all your voting age, eligible family and friends with you! We have a country to save! DO IT NOW!

    I wish our President would start asking the questions out loud at his rallies like why did Hunter's lawyer as for his client's laptop if it were not Hunter Biden's? Why have many others who wrote emails that showed up on Hunter's computer confirm that these were indeed emails that they had sent or received if this was not Hunter's computer and his emails? Why have the Biden's not denied any of these emails if they were not Hunter's?

    It would be nice to hear less tearing down Biden (Harris) and more of what our great President intends with his next 4 years. Build on the foundation on what our President has already done and where he is going to take our country during the next 4 years. We all know that Biden is mentally incompetent and that Harris is insincere and deceitful by not being forthright about their true stands on fracking, taxes, gun control, packing the Supreme Court, etc.; etc.; etc. as they both did earlier in their campaign.

    Lets face a couple of facts Joe Biden has answered about 12 questions and I have questioned my six year old grandkids more sophisticated questions than Biden got from reporters and they answered 4 times faster. Our President was on fire today throwing a stuff out today I liked it I am quite a bit tougher around the edge than most. People that went thru a Basic Training Course in the Military in the 60's may understand the fire. I also have been a Blue Collar worker my adult life and we had a lot fun not knowing PC or at-hearing to it. A lot of colorful conversations have been canceled because of PC and society lost a lot of color and has turned society into a drab and mean society no humor anymore.

    "....FBI Director Chris Wray and CIA Director Gina Haspel, who both should be sent packing." Can we please get a 'nationwide,' full-blown, AMEN? How is it that somebody as talented as a Trey Gowdy has NOT yet replaced this dissembling, bumbling, distracting Wray character?

    I know the country is in an election season, but somebody STILL has to steer this all but uncontrollable ship! President Trump could REPLACE this Wray while airborne during one of his "Protest Rally" jaunts.

    Mike, I am really having a very hard time trying to stay positive about my beloved country. The duplicitous actions of our own FBI, as well as the continued crimes being perpetrated by the Democratic party, without consequences, is making it hard to believe in justice, anymore. I am, as my Brit husband says, "gob smacked", by all of this. I fear for my kids and grandkids if Biden (Harris) gets elected as the America, in which I grew up, will be gone, never to return. I am a Christian and I have been praying for God's will to be done in all of this. Do you have any words of comfort?? Thanks so much for all you do. You are a great guy!

    First about the next debate. They want to give Biden more time to speak!!!! Oh so he can spend it telling lies about the President? They say it is because the President interrupted him too much. I say NO MORE DEBATES. Somebody get the message to the president. WE DON'T NEED ANYMORE DEBATES!!!
    Next about the Biden's: Isn't there a way to find out who all have invested in the Biden's companies they have set up? If they could we would know the people who are suppressing the information starting with the news media. They are all invested. Follow the money.

    The people who are suppose to be protecting us are so evil and are trying to cover it up. We pay the FBI, lets get rid of those evil ones. they are hurting America. The media is a big liar and cover up. Only what they want the people to know, and, if you don't have discernment, you could believe. The so called Commission is unreal. The difference in Democrat and Republican town halls is pure evil. President Trump needs to say no unless he can choose moderator. I believe the American people are smarter than some think. I support President Trump and doing all I can to get him elected.

    After looking the pictures of those charged in Portland, I get the feeling they believed what their professors and teachers taught them. Just wait if Biden and the Democrats have control of the House and Senate. They most likely will be looking at each other as their pensions and their parents pensions and employment opportunities are back to China and other places. All you see nothing. As the deals that Hunter Biden made with the Chinese Energy Companies and what else back door deals where done and now have control of your energy companies and now will be able to control the amount energy you will and the cost for usage of that energy.

    Remember that National Deficit has interest payments that have different interest payments due on everyday of the year.

    Do they know what the word "DEFAULT" means.

    Do you think the Elitist backing them do not have a escape plan if all of a sudden the country goes into a deep depression, just like or grandparents and possibility their parents experienced and remember dearly as they struggled on a day to day basis.

    So let them keep playing their games and they will get to learn a lesson they will never forget and will realize we should have spent more time learning vice being the social media platforms.

    These people who are involved in the suppression of evidence against the Biden Crime Family are co conspirators.

    It has become apparent over the past few years that the FBI has been compromised. The upper echelons of the FBI should be kicked to the curb and 3-5 persons who love our country should be advanced to co-director positions. A board of 3 to 5 honest co-directors would find it much more difficult to manipulate the truth or hide things from the FBI Inspector General.

One must reclaim, and maintain, one's life with dignity, grace, and good humour.

    No one wants another civil war. A sane and rational person only wants peace with everyone.
    In addition, all sane and peace loving people want criminals brought to justice.
    But....what happens if criminals are so abundant that a "Normal" police force or a "Normal" justice system is unable to handle such a gigantic load?
    Right now, America is divided. Now lets say....JUST for the sake of argument....that one half of America is confirmed to be criminal. Let's say that one half of America has been confirmed to be actively lying and deceiving the other half of America in order to overthrow our government.
    What then?
    Could we send one half of the FBI to arrest one half of America? Could "one half" of the law enforcement officers in America effectively arrest the other "one half" of the "criminal police force"?
    This scenario sounds outrageous of course...but the object is to get you to think.
    How many people...just in Congress alone....have been *proven to be actively trying to discard the Constitution and Bill of Rights? Has Pelosi ever shown contempt for the rule of law? Is that a criminal act?
    Yes.
    Something must be done. But what? America has ignored these problems for over a hundred years. We are now experiencing the climax. Should America continue to ignore these problems...all the while hoping for a different outcome than we have presently?
    Should we continue to allow the FBI and Congress break the law without any repercussions?
    When enough Americans come to believe that Justice can no longer be served then vigilante groups will form.
    We must prevent that from happening. Justice must be served. No matter how distasteful it will be.
    America must pray and then *Act. Jesus Christ is not going to come down from Heaven and arrest all the criminals in America. No. But He does, as the Bible states, expect righteous Americans to do that...He does expect Americans to administer justice.
    You decide.

    Governor,
    You make some excellent points, but as I have stated before, nothing will come from it. Where are the Republicans on this. I agree, Wray and Haspel has to go, why are they still there? Why hasn't Trump fired them, is his advisors giving him bad advice, why, why ,why? I don't hear the Republicans raising the roof over this, you can bet the Democrats would have moved the world to get something done if they had this story dumped in their lap. There has to be some reason why the Democrats can railroad Trump with lies and nothing can be done to them when facts are presented that vilifies them. The American people need to know the truth, regardless of which side of the political stripe the facts lead it to. Governor, why isn't this happening, thats the real story!

Haspel the head of the CIA is hiding under a desk hoping nobody is talking to her so far she feels protected. If the FBI CIA is not protecting the public from internal espionage what the Hell are they doing to stop China Russia Iran and every other deviate country that is infiltrating us?
