By Mike Huckabee

PART II OF THAT STORY

Here’s part two of the bombshell story by that newspaper I cannot name, about that fellow I’m not allowed to mention and how bigly he cashed in on his familial contacts with you-know-who to pocket a lot of money from a country I’m not at liberty to reveal.

I used a Tiny URL link to forward you to it, since I doubt that I would be allowed to use a URL that had the actual name of the newspaper in it. But this one will get you to where Twitter and Facebook don’t want you to go, and that’s all that matters.

TOWNHALL TONIGHT

Tonight, NBC will host a townhall with President Trump at the same time that ABC is airing a townhall with Joe Biden. Liberals in the media and, of course, on social media, are OUTRAGED!!! at NBC for scheduling the Trump townhall opposite Biden. Since this was supposed to be the night of the second debate, they’re railing that Trump should have agreed to debate Biden directly, but he ducked out and now he’s trying to steal his thunder.

Okay, a couple of corrections: Trump did want to debate Biden directly. In fact, he insisted on it and only pulled out because the biased debate commission and the Biden campaign tried to change the agreed-upon rules of the debate and make it a Zoom conference, where they could silence Trump’s microphone. The excuse for this was that he had the coronavirus, but he’s already tested negative so that point is moot.

Second, I understand that they have these gizmos nowadays that actually let you record TV shows and watch them at your convenience. Imagine that! So if you really want to see both townhalls, you can watch Trump live, then fire your DVR or VCR or whatever and watch Biden when you’re ready to fall asleep.

TUESDAY'S SCOTUS RULINGS

Tuesday was a good day for President Trump in the courts, with a couple of major rulings going his way. The Supreme Court declined to hear an appeal by Congressional Democrats of their absurd claim that Trump is violating the Emoluments Clause that bars Presidents from taking gifts and bribes from foreign officials because his business profits when foreign officials stay in Trump hotels.

If this had been allowed to stand, it would have barred any business person from ever holding the office, leaving us nothing but candidates who’ve become wealthy through “public service,” like Joe Biden. Even George Washington and Thomas Jefferson continued running their farms and selling their farm products, including to foreign buyers, while serving as President.

Next, the Democrats will claim Trump was bribing the foreign officials by letting them take the hotels’ little bottles of shampoos and lotions. Surely that violates the Emollients Clause! Oops, don’t want to give them any ideas.

The Supreme Court also allowed the Census Bureau to end its count in mid-October instead of the end of October. Democrats protested that this would taint the reliability of the counting, which was delayed by the coronavirus. But the Bureau says that well over 99.9% of households have been accounted for and they need to start all the tabulations to meet the legally-required report deadline of December 31st.

Naturally, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued a statement decrying the decision but didn’t mention that the Census Bureau asked Congress to put off the deadline by four months, and did the same thing they've done about coronavirus relief and every other pressing issue: nothing.

THE PLAN

A radical leftist group called ShutDownDC released its plan to disrupt America if the election is close (not just if Trump wins, but if it’s even close.) This should be your cue to do everything you can to make sure it is nowhere near close, and that these people and their enablers get nowhere near close to winning any power over you and your family.

This obviously planned and coordinated effort to try to shut down America calls for “sustained”…“uprisings, resistance and mass direct action” in the streets, highways and power centers, strikes, slowdowns, boycotts and job walkouts, among many other forms of “resistance” to “white supremacist violence.”

I hope authorities are taking this seriously, although I have a feeling that the one tactic we hardly have to worry about from these people is “job walkouts.”

THE BIDENS: WHAT ARE THE MEDIA TRYING SO HARD TO HIDE?

Let’s set aside for the moment the blatant censorship of the Joe/Hunter Biden story by the Ministry of Truth –- I mean, Twitter, Facebook and the rest of the anti-Trump media. That issue looms large, to be sure, but as the election nears, we can’t let it detract from what it is they’re trying so hard to bury: evidence of what Joe Biden DID while Vice President to help his son peddle influence in foreign countries. (Ironically, by trying so hard to hide it, Twitter and Facebook have succeeded in calling more attention to it. This is an example of the “Streisand Effect,” to be discussed separately.)

By now you know the story about the laptop, first reported in the NEW YORK POST. A computer repair technician in Delaware was left with a MacBook Pro that no one had ever come back to his shop to claim; it apparently belonged to Hunter Biden. As reported by the POST, it had a sticker on it from the Beau Biden Foundation and contained video of Hunter having sex with an unidentified woman and also smoking crack. It’s hard to even imagine this could have been created as part of a hoax, and the Biden campaign has not disputed the authenticity of the emails.

This discovery is important in light of what we already knew about Hunter Biden, who, with no relevant experience, was paid $50,000 a month starting in April, 2014, to sit on the board of Burisma, a corrupt Ukrainian oil and gas company. At the time, his dad, Joe Biden, was Vice President of the United States and had been appointed by Obama for some reason to be “point man” on U.S. policy in Ukraine. So the question naturally arises, what did Burisma plan to get for its investment? And did it get that? These emails suggest that it did.

According to the messages, on May 12, 2014 –- mere weeks after Hunter was asked to join the board –- a top executive at Burisma emailed him to ask him to use his “influence” to quell Ukrainian officials whom he claimed were trying to extort the company. This was the very day that Burisma publicly announced that Hunter Biden had joined its board and would be running its “legal unit and...provide support for the Company among international organizations.” But according to the POST story, Hunter Biden’s attorney says he’s never been in charge of Burisma’s legal affairs.

On April 17, 2015, the same executive emailed Hunter to thank him for the meeting he’d had with the Vice President and for getting to “spend some time” with him. Joe Biden’s campaign spokesperson disputes that the meeting took place, saying it wasn’t on his official calendar, as if that proved they didn’t meet.

We know (because he bragged about it in 2018 in front of a live audience of the Council on Foreign Relations) that just a few months later, in December of 2015, Joe Biden threatened the Ukrainian president and the prime minister that $1 billion in aid would be withheld unless their prosecutor general, Viktor Shokin, was fired. Apparently, that was what it took to put Shokin in the unemployment line.

Legal analyst Andrew C. McCarthy outlines in more detail what we know and can piece together about the various meetings and communications. These also involve Hunter’s business partner Devon Archer, who used to work as a senior adviser to Joe Biden’s close friend John Kerry and was convicted in 2018 of fraud and conspiracy. (Evidence in the case also implicated Hunter, but he was not charged.) McCarthy touches on how the laptop came to be in the possession of the FBI and how a copy of the hard drive got to Trump attorney Rudy Guiliani, who passed it on to the POST on Sunday. The POST had been told about it by Steve Bannon.

McCarthy says it’s “unclear” why these emails are just now coming to light. Seems like the typical “October surprise” to me, though instinct tells me there's much more backstory to be learned.

For example, how did the computer technician come to be subpoenaed by the U.S. attorney’s office in Delaware to produce the laptop for a grand jury? Yes, grand jury proceedings are secret, but what was that about? This is when the FBI apparently took custody of the laptop. As McCarthy points out, this was December, 2019, when the Democrats were just wrapping up their (phony) impeachment proceedings. It sure would have been fun for Trump to use this back in January during his Senate trial. Just imagine Trump’s attorneys putting those emails up on a big screen and saying, “HEY! You wanna talk about corruption??”

Of course, Joe Biden has maintained that he pressed for Shokin’s firing only because of claims by European leaders that Shokin was corrupt. No, no, it had nothing to do with any personal agenda that involved Biden's own son. That doesn't cut it. An honest, ethical VP would have said, "Look, son, with me in charge of our policy towards Ukraine, you can't be on the Burisma board."

The huge irony here: President Trump was impeached over a phone call in which Democrats claimed he was threatening to withhold aid if Ukrainians didn’t act to further his own personal agenda. Trump did NOT do that –- Biden DID. Trump got impeached. Biden became the Democrat nominee for President. Talk about a two-tier justice system.

And again, as we’ve said for years, what Democrats accuse Republicans of doing is always what they themselves have done (or are doing, or plan to do).

Joe Biden has insisted over and over that he “never, ever, ever, ever” (yes, that’s a quote) talked with his son about his foreign business dealings. If these emails reflect actual events, he is either thoroughly corrupt and lying his head off or else is having even more serious memory lapses than we knew. Or both.

    Wish the President would add some ammo to Covid discussions. Yes, it's a shame we have lost 210,000 plus citizens to Covid; do Dems also think it's a shame we have lost ?????? citizens to infant murder via abortion during the same period of time? And why is Covid more deserving of continuing or future shut-downs than the Flu or other serious illnesses in recent years? To the best of my knowledge, Biden/Obama didn't focus and publicize public health risks during their eight years in control, and they certainly never approached shut-downs. Very heroic on President Trump's part. I personally think he was sold a bill of goods based on malice aforethought by Fauci and other dem-leading losers in the government's health care system--a very well thought-out and malicious backdoor attempt to influence the election. And the President erred on the side of caution, trying to protect the entire population of the USA--the people he swore to serve and the people he continues to serve in the midst of so many extreme attacks and fabrications. But a key in rebuttal might be that the Dems pick and choose which lives are important--Covid deaths matter; abortion deaths (legalized murder) do not; Black lives matter, Blue lives do not; the weekly slaughter of citizens in Chicago does not matter; riots and violence that hurt John Q Public do not matter. The Dems have become a vile, violent, unreliable band of hooligans and don't deserve to have any power in our government. God Bless America and Donald J. Trump!

    I am stunned that people consider voting for Harris and Biden. The thought of Biden talking to the CCP or Iranian officials or the waddling 4' by 4' Mental Illness slob in North Korea the slob has more mental acutely than then the extortion king Biden. As Biden has done for 47 years selling out American taxpayers ,does anyone in its right mind think this old mutt is going to change? forget about it this miserable ally of the American people will single handed send this country into the Abyss .

    In Arizona, Biden's Townhall is on right now (5:25 pm) but Trump's Townhall will not view until 8 pm on Cox. So I went to NBC on the Internet to view Trump. Mike - the moderator is constantly throwing accusatory and false assumption questions to Trump and only upsetting him which is her purpose I'm sure. It angered me so much I quit watching. I am SO very sick of the way Biden is handled with kid gloves and Trump is treated atrociously and with such disrespect by these moderators. NBC should be ashamed. I seldom watch NBC and in the future, I can guarantee you that I'll watch it rarely if at all.

    With the computer event, which holds many emails, I am sure that there are emails to his father Joe Biden. These emails that I am supposing Joe Biden got, will implicate him further in the Ukraine/Burisma scandal. So, somehow he must be taken out of the Presidential race immediately because of new evidence against him. What happens then?

    Obama Clinton Biden the MSM the Political Left the CCP Of course the go to guy Putin the Russian has demonized the Trump Administration and anybody that helped MAGA to a point where every American should be denounce Harris and Biden. Further reasons to denounce the two are the members of senate confirmation of Amy Barrett. The job of the Hearing was to obtain information if the candidate is qualified. Today the members spent time on trying to cover up the failings the Left's Congress passed laws that are Unconstitutional. It wants the Supreme court to ratified it misuse of Government power. Does anyone wonder why Pelosi and her Klan can not do anything positive? These people are not real ignorant they are careless to the needs and wants of the Americans that pay them; the facts are in everyones face the Left is just a group that is self centered, self rewarding, self empowered and we the people are really to blame 40 30 20 15 10 years of reelections we will reap what we sow. And we have a Shitff field of Congress. Lowest rating of all time. Looking at the Left' walking dead during the hearing reenforces that statement. They just stink!

    Gov: I think another large avoidance of the Rule of Law, in this current case, is that we have heard nothing from the FBI about the son's Mac laptop and its contents. I don't believe that it was too confidential of a subject to go into, that close (almost a year) to Nov 3, 2020. It sure was not too close for HRC in having the FBI Director disclosing on National Press, that HRC had "no intent" to break the law and thus, no reasonable prosecutor would prosecute the case, (spoiling the predicate) not to mention the other later discovered laptop, loaded with Emails from HRC. There needs to be a through FBI/DOJ house cleaning after this election!

    Those crazies are going to try and cause problems all the US after the election
    better have their last will in order. If you look carefully in Portland the mayor and governor are seeing what their inaction is costing them in revenue for the city and state coffers and you can get the feeling the residents are getting ready to show the mayor and his cohorts the door in very near future. Antifa has almost guaranteed a TRUMP VICTORY with the suburban vote NOT IN BIDENS pocket due the added costs of rebuilding and people just leaving the mess for them to live in.

    LOL! Corrupt politicians, what a revelation. The FBI is full 'in-the-bag' for the whole boatload of 'establishment' politicians. It is the only logical conclusion for their inability to "follow the money" of anybody not in the Trump world of associates.

    Do any semi-sane individuals really 'believe' that people like Pelosi, Schumer, Feinstein, Watters, Schiff, etc., ad-infinitum, actually CARE anything about 'REAL PEOPLE?' These 'self-enriching' scum scheme, obfuscate, lie, or do anything to get into this 'government of politicians, by politicians, and for politicians to gain access, not to just 'We The Serf's' $175,000 per salary, to their unlimited ability to become 'gloriously' or 'ingloriously' rich!

    I'm waiting, but not holding my breath, for ANY former, or current, individual that held or is holding a high-level position in this corrupted "People's" government to be prosecuted. To ever witness them be perp-walked to prison is to think as a Socialist and believe Nirvana can actually be experienced in this world!

    Favorite Dem friends responses to statements of proven fact about Biden:

    Sexual harassment = not nearly as bad as Trump

    Ukraine, China and Hunter:
    They all do it.
    We don’t know what Trump has hidden.
    A few emails don’t prove anything.
    Biden can’t be responsible for his son’s actions.
    I never heard about any mails, you must be listening to FOX and they make up things.
    The important thing is to get Trump out.

    Racism:
    Biden’s comments where years ago.
    Trump’s Charlottesville speech proves he is a racist.
    Trump has never disavowed white supremacy.
    The increased employment opportunities and higher pay were put in place by Obama.
    Trump is trying to keep people of color from voting.
    Trumps racist because he cut off travel with China.

    Virus:
    200,000 plus have died and that’s
    Trumps fault.
    Cuomo made a slight mistake with the nursing homes but no ones perfect.
    Well, yess Trump did get manufacturers to make things but he should of had a national shut down and everyone wearing masks. He should not have left it to the states. Don’t know about any states rights associated with this. Doesn’t matter, he should have done it. That’s leadership. He should have shut everything down tightly.

    Voting corruption:
    Doesn’t exist. Well maybe a few minor places.
    Trump won’t leave office even if he looses decisively. The Army will have to go in a force him out of the White House, of course Biden won’t concede. If Trump should happen to win, it will be because of corruption.

    Supreme Court:
    If she is confirmed women will die from back street abortions and millions will be without affordable health insurance.

    Employment:
    We have a terrible employment rate. Businesses are closing.

    Summary:
    Under Biden employment would be better and with a total shut dowN would not have had the deaths. Trump was racist for shutting down travel. He’s supports white supremacy. He is divisive, while Obama was a uniter. Biden’s gaffs are highly exaggerated by FOX news. It is tiring campaigning. He is perfectly mentally acute. Any close elections in the future will be stopped by getting rid of the electoral college. The good, caring. bright people will prevail. Of course there will still be freedom speech and religion. You just have to prevent hate speech and church’s need to provide services and benefits to all. It is fair. People cannot allow their religion to impact their business practices. That is for Sunday’s. .

    May I ask a really dumb (yes, I know, the grammatically correct word I should have used was "stupid", but the word "dumb" seems more appropriate) question
    ......if Christians bought Stephen Strang's message (in the book he authored entitled "God and Donald Trump") where he purports that it was DIVINE INTERVENTION that got Trump elected, why are they not trusting on that same kind of DIVINE INTERVENTION to get Trump re-elected?.....AND...

    If President Trump himself really believed that it WAS, as Stephen Strang so claimed, God Who got him elected, he would not have felt the necessity to have his rallies FOR which he is getting criticized for..not only by medical doctors, but also by those who had a loved one die from the coronavirus!

    It is Trump's caring more about how a rally would benefit him politically, than how it would promote the spread of a virus that could wind up costing someone his, or her, life that has authored the hate-filled rage that some people are now feeling TOWARD Trump and that hate -filled rage...and contempt....is not going to be assuaged...or lessened....by this new "dirt" on Biden!....THAT IS...UNLESS...

    CHRISTIANS...who have picked up the cross Jesus said was the "if" condition of true discipleship....AT THIS Nth HOUR...WILL OUT CRY THIS POLITICAL NIGHTMARE FOR THE SPIRITUAL WARFARE IT REALLY IS....BECAUSE, IN REALITY, THE FIGHT IS NOT POLITICAL, IN NATURE...IT IS SPIRITUAL IN NATURE!!!!

    I have two thoughts on today's newsletter.
    First , both Townhall aired at the same time. I could almost be a mini election which ever got the most viewers would tell way more than any polls would ever tell.
    Second, I served 24 years in the military and I take a Pearson's Honorable discharge or dis Honorable discharge seriously and as a reference on how they were raised. Hunter Biden's dishonorable discharge is a reflection on his father's raising him and is a slap in the face of his brother's finial devotion to duty and every person how gave there all from day one of this country. I would in no way what so ever want a Biden as the leader of my country.

Absolute class in the midst of crass, crude and bottom feeding senate. Time to end this charade and put her in the SCOTUS. The behavior of Booker, Harris and Hirono is beyond disgraceful.

With all the "unrest" they're planning after the election, I suppose law-abiding citizens are gonna be going to jail by the numbers for defending their life and property? I sure hope someone (hopefully Trump) is thinking ahead a bit and have a plan to stop the left's craziness and hold them accountable .....aka: toss their hineys in prison and lose the keys!!!

    The Asian Carp is an invasive species that destroys game fish habitat and habitat in general Like the Wuhan Virus it destroys and kills Business and Human Life. The introduction of the CCP into Hollywood, the Main Stream Media and into the past Presidential Administrations, its destructive path is well documented. What I can't get thru my thick skull is why are people going to vote for a CCP agenda? The result of a CCP election total destruction of the country will take less than four years. All the time America spent to rid itself of slavery, unequal justice (with the exception of the Obama Crime family) we will set ourselves back to a darker time, the CCP is worse than any slave owner that ever existed ,if people are still outraged what happened 400 years ago get ready to NEVER beat the CCP's methods no escape. No America to come to the rescue.
