2. John Solomon's timeline for Russia Hoax conspirators
As promised, investigative reporter John Solomon has put together a timeline suggested by motions filed by special counsel John Durham, and it shows the relentless effort Hillary’s operatives made to create the Trump-Russia “collusion” narrative in the months before the 2020 election. It comes just as Durham’s latest filing, detailed here yesterday, calls what they did a “joint venture” and a “conspiracy” to shop the fake story and damage a presidential candidate.
The timeline starts on July 5, 2016. Recall that this is the day then-FBI Director James Comey gives his “no reasonable prosecutor” speech that allows Hillary to become the 2016 Democrat nominee for President, regardless of what she and her cohorts might have done. That very day, Christopher Steele delivers his first version of the “dossier” --- this is actually a series of memos --- to an American FBI agent in a London field office.
Solomon’s piece is highly recommended reading. By now, the story is familiar, but seeing it in chronological order helps make sense of the various conspiratorial connections. Solomon stops his timeline at Election Day, except for one last event on February 9, soon AFTER Trump has been sworn into office..
On that day, Michael Sussmann walks into the CIA and presents the same phony-baloney Alfa Bank fairy tale. And, again, he lies and says he’s not there representing any client.
Of course, Hillary Clinton is right up there at the top of the list of people President Trump is suing over the Russia Hoax. Margot Cleveland at The Federalist took a look at that suit and the chances Trump has of prevailing.
Trump’s lawyers allege 16 separate counts, from state law tort claims to RICO (organized conspiracy) claims. Under the RICO Act, there’s a “civil right of action,” which means Trump can sue for damages in civil court. Cleveland is great at explaining all of this, so I recommend it highly, though be advised that she sees an uphill battle for him. As I’ve said before, though, I’m not sure that obtaining relief from the legal system is his primary reason for doing this. It could just be one for the history books –- part of what it takes to get the real story out about WHAT THEY DID.
3. Daily Mail: emails Hunter only THOUGHT he'd erased
So much Hunter laptop news, so little time!
“Hunter laptop,” of course, is shorthand for what this story really is: Expansive Biden family corruption and the media’s shameful coverup designed to ensure Joe Biden’s win in 2020.
Don’t be fooled into thinking the media’s sudden readiness to talk about Hunter isn’t part of a plan by those pulling their strings. Right now, most in the media are playing catch-up as they finally acknowledge what you and I have known for many months.
High praise to the New York Post, which broke the story initially in October 2020, and also to the British press, which has covered what most of the American press would not touch. DailyMail.com has new information about laptop “whistleblower” Jack Maxey, the man who received Hunter’s hard drive from Rudy Giuliani and gave a copy to the Daily Mail. Out of concerns for his own safety, Maxey, who was co-host of Steve Bannon’s podcast “The War Room,” has reportedly been hiding out the past couple of weeks in Zurich, where he’s working with IT experts to extract more information –- emails that supposedly had been deleted. (Considering what Hunter did NOT delete, it’s impossible even to imagine what he thought he’d better delete!)
Maxey said he’d found 400 gigabytes of what Hunter probably assumed had been erased, including 80,000 images and videos (good grief) and more than 120,000 archived emails –- “very difficult to reach,” he said –- and that he’ll be posting them all online in a searchable database in the coming weeks.
His original intention, he said, was to make copies of this material available to the U.S. Congress and Senate and to law enforcement. But he has a big concern about the FBI: “It appears that the FBI agent that picked up Hunter’s laptop and those he was associated with never filed [it] into evidence at the FBI...The FBI received the laptop on the 9th of December 2019, but they actually were informed of its existence earlier.”
He’s seen no confirmation that they’ve done anything at all with it. “As far as I can tell, the trial in Delaware’s about taxes,” he said. “It’s not about abusing children; it’s not about trafficking women. It’s not about putting in jail all the crack dealers all across America who Hunter used to keep his habit up.” (Watch the video at the link to see what he says about the hypocrisy of Joe Biden’s crack law that has incarcerated so many black men, when Hunter never got prosecuted.)
Maxey said that in the spring of 2021, when he approached the Daily Mail, he also gave copies and material from the hard drive to the Washington Post, New York Times, and Sen. Chuck Grassley, the ranking Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee, and that they all, even Grassley, sat on it for months. “No news organizations [except the Daily Mail] would take it,” he said.
According to Maxey, after he contacted the Daily Mail about the laptop, black suburban SUVs appeared outside his house, and former U.S. intel officers with whom he’d shared copies told him they were getting “strange calls.”
Friends “were making welfare calls to me every day,” he said, “basically to see if I was still alive.” He said he posted some of the newly recovered material to file sharing sites, and it was there for about an hour before being taken down --- he suspects by our intelligence services, but Daily Mail has not been able to verify this.
Maxey believes that suppression of this material interfered with the election. “The American people were utterly betrayed,” he said, “because I guarantee you that Joe Biden couldn’t run for dog catcher if [they] knew about this laptop.”
Here’s the link; we apologize once again for the creepy Hunter Biden pictures.
Joel Pollak of Breitbart News agrees that this was election interference. Tweet Of The Day:
FOX News reported Wednesday that according to emails, “Big Guy” Joe Biden wrote a letter of recommendation in 2017 for the son of one of Hunter’s Chinese business partners –- you know, the Chinese business partners that Joe never knew anything about –- to help him get into Brown University.
As you know, the grand jury in Delaware has asked one of Hunter’s business associates about the identity of the “Big Guy.”
White House press secretary Jen Psaki, when asked about the letter by FOX News’ Peter Doocy, dismissed his question by saying Biden was “a private citizen” at the time he wrote the letter, but that’s not the point. Biden has said he knew nothing of his son’s business ventures, but to write the letter, he had to know Hunter was a partner of this Chinese businessman.
Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson noted on Wednesday’s HANNITY that President Biden gifted the CCP by, for example, canceling the China Initiative, which was to look into college students and professors who might be stealing intellectual property. Johnson called the whole situation “sleazy” and “corrupt,” but saved his most serious concerns for the cooperation of the mainstream media and the 51 former intel officials who signed the letter claiming the laptop had “earmarks” of a Russian plot.
As much as we need a special counsel to investigate "Biden, Inc.," Sen. Johnson said he’d have no faith in anyone appointed by Attorney General Merrick Garland. “If we could find one with integrity, I’d love to see it,” he said, “but the problem is, the information then goes into a dark hole.” He pointed out the length of time the Durham probe has taken to start revealing evidence, noting that it takes good investigative reporters to get information to us in a more timely way. (Of course, we’ve been getting that in the form of John Solomon, Miranda Deevine and others.)
Jordan Boyd makes a good point in The Federalist: that what we’ve learned is true about “the Biden family racket” is what the media think is true about Trump. She sees the media ignoring and burying the real Biden stories while eagerly pushing the fake Trump stories.
In fact, Matt Vespa at Townhall offers a stunning example of the sorry state of liberal “journalism.” Watch the video and see the utterly dismissive attitude of The Atlantic’s Anne Applebaum towards the Hunter story…
Why, she simply has no interest in it at all. Of course, if this were about Trump and his family, she’d call it The Story Of The Century.
Leftist “journalists” are an embarrassment to their so-called profession, and Matt Taibbi is not above rubbing their noses in it. Let’s join in (when you have time; it's a long piece)...
Democrats in Congress are on par with these media types. I’ll summarize the “premium” story in The Epoch Times about Democrats blocking the GOP’s subpoena to have Hunter Biden come testify: Arizona Rep. Andy Biggs had moved to subpoena Hunter –- for a meeting about electrifying the U.S. Postal System, as he had sold a cobalt mine to a Chinese company. I don’t think that’s what they really wanted to talk to him about.
But, of course, the Democrats blocked it, so it's sort of a “dog bites man” story.
4. Russia-Ukraine update
Here’s today’s link to Fox News’ continually-updated Russia-Ukraine news:
Among the recent developments: The Senate voted to revive the World War II-era Lend-Lease program to lend or lease defense equipment to Ukraine. NATO is also urging member nations to send heavier weapons to Ukraine to help fight back against Russia. The Mariupol City Council accused Russian troops of using mobile crematoriums to destroy civilian bodies and hide the evidence of war crimes, calling it “the new Auschwitz.” German intelligence reported that they had intercepted radio messages of Russian troops discussing the killing of civilians in Bucha that Russian officials deny happened. And the FBI announced that it had disrupted a Russian military hacker network and taken control of thousands of devices they’d hijacked to set up a “botnet” to launch cyberattacks.
5. “What Can I Do Next To Make Things Worse?” policy
As part of his never-ending “What Can I Do Next To Make Things Worse?” policy, President Biden is refusing to listen to worried Senate Democrats, angry border state leaders or even the majority of US voters who don’t want him to lift the Title 42 COVID restrictions in May and allow a massive new wave of illegal immigrants to rush across the border. It’s such a harebrained idea that a bipartisan group of Senators will introduce a bill today to try to stop him.
But at the moment, Biden seems determined to proceed with this predictable disaster anyway, because why not?
Well, maybe this will get his attention: Texas Gov. Greg Abbott made it clear that Texas is fed up with bearing the brunt of Biden’s open border policy and all the crime and drugs it’s allowed to come pouring into the state. He says since the federal government refuses to do its job, he’s allocating state resources, including more equipment and the Texas National Guard, to shore up border security. But here’s the really creative part:
Abbott says overwhelmed towns along the border have been busing migrants to San Antonio, but he has a better solution. He’s arranged to provide charter buses to pick up any illegal entrants and take them directly to Washington, DC. He says they’ll be dropped off at the US Capitol, “where the Biden Administration will be able to more immediately address the needs of the people that they are allowing to come across our border."
Abbott said he will employ as many buses as needed, pointing to past evacuations for natural disasters that used as many as 900 buses. I assume he'll need more than that, since Biden's presidency is proving to be a bigger disaster than any recent hurricane.
As much as I love this idea, I suggest that they also unload plenty of those buses in some of the more affluent suburbs around DC, the ones with the highest incomes in America, wherein live the lawyers, lobbyists and politicians who have worked so hard to create the open borders policy and its resulting flood of illegal immigration that they assumed would never touch them in any way.
Related: Speaking of Biden and his terrible, horrible, no good, very bad policy decisions, his new Iran nuclear deal is so alarmingly awful that a group of 18 House Democrats is now speaking out to try to stop it.
6. Free speech update at Twitter...not yet
Twitter is making it clear that they don’t care that Elon Musk bought 12% of their stock, they will have no truck with any of that free speech nonsense, and they have no intention of allowing President Trump or any of the other conservatives they’ve banned back onto the platform.
So that means that after 2024 when the restrictive terms of his purchase expire, Musk might have to buy another 39% of Twitter’s stock out of his couch cushion change. Of course, by then, Republicans might control both the White House and Congress, and forcibly reintroduce Twitter to the concept of free speech that it’s supposed to respect if it wants to continue enjoying immunity from the gigantic lawsuits it so richly deserves.
7. This might have helped
Having started his presidency by attempting to crush the domestic energy industry, President Biden soon found himself begging OPEC and nations hostile to the US to sell us more oil and help bring down the gas prices he sent skyrocketing. They said no. So recently, he’s turned to begging Canada to sell us more oil. Canada reportedly has more than enough oil to cover our needs.
But Canadian officials say there’s a problem: how will it be transported to the US? Trucks and rail are expensive and could result in dangerous spills, and all existing pipelines are already at capacity. Say, do you know what could have solved this problem? If we’d finished building the Keystone XL Pipeline. If only someone hadn’t been dumb enough to shut that down.
As one industry analyst put it, “There’s not a limitation in terms of resource potential. There’s a limitation of capacity.” I’d say he’s correct, but the real problem is this Administration’s limitation of mental capacity.
