DAILY BIBLE VERSE
Bless them which persecute you; bless, and curse not.
Well, this is bizarre. I thought that mishandling government documents was a five-alarm federal offense calling for guns-drawn dawn raids and multiple felony indictments. Or is that only for Trump and people who support him?
Attention, Republican DA’s and attorneys general looking for evidence to file indictments:
Here’s 10 minutes’ worth of video of 150 instances of prominent Democrats denying election results and attempting to interfere with elections, spread disinformation and hijack “our democracy.”
This month marks two years since the tragic and disastrous pullout of Afghanistan which the media would like to bury and the White House would like to pretend was a marvelous achievement. (Biden asked an audience to name one objective at which he’s failed, and he was right: it’s impossible to name just one.)
Unfortunately for them, Americans haven’t forgotten the unforgivable and needless deaths of our heroic Marines and Afghan allies. On Wednesday, a new book was released called “Kabul: The Untold Story of Biden’s Fiasco and the American Warriors Who Fought to the End,” by Jerry Dunleavy and James Hasson. Some horrifying revelations have already come out, like the clueless and callous way Biden dealt with the grieving parents of the Marines slain in a terrorist bombing that could have been prevented if anyone had been in charge on our side. For instance, lying to them that he knew how they felt because his son Beau was killed in Iraq and came home in a flag-draped coffin (he actually died of cancer in the US, surrounded by his family.)
But believe it or not, there’s more, and it makes it even worse.
I’m glad this book is out because the deaths of these Marines must never be allowed to be memory-holed, nor should we allow those responsible to bury the facts for their own political advantage.
We’ll definitely have more later on this story, which won’t even come as news to our readers. House Republicans are up in arms following the release of a 2018 text thread in which Hunter Biden complained about Wells Fargo shutting down one of his credit lines because of “too many profile changes and such.” He also mentions that “My dad has been using most lines on this account which I’ve through the gracious offerings of Eric have paid for past 11 years.” Republicans are calling this more evidence that Hunter was using his series of shell accounts and pay-offs to cover “The Big Guy’s” bills.
I’m sure the DOJ will react swiftly to this latest Biden corruption evidence by indicting Trump for sabotaging the Hindenburg.

Democrat Governor vetoes Fairness in Women’s Sports Act
Attention, women who vote reflexively for Democrats because you think Democrats protect “women’s rights.” North Carolina’s Democrat Gov. Roy Cooper vetoed the Fairness in Women’s Sports Act. It would ban “transgender” males who identify as female from competing against girls in middle school, high school and college; taking their records, trophies and scholarships; invading their showers and bathrooms; and in some cases, seriously injuring girls with their superior size and strength. Fortunately, the heavily GOP legislature overrode his veto, along with others, like his veto of the new Parents’ Bill of Rights.
But if you think “women’s rights” means nothing but being able to kill babies in the womb up until the moment of birth, yeah, Democrats will protect that.
Research? What is that?
Another day, another Rolling Stone “reporter” proves that the magazine’s journalistic credo is “Research? What’s that?!”

Court filing claims: Senator Feinstein is a victim of elder abuse
Katherine Feinstein, daughter of Sen. Diane Feinstein, made a court filing claiming her mother is the victim of elder abuse. She claims that co-trustees of a trust left by Feinstein’s late husband have not been making the required distributions of money from it to his 90-year-old widow.
I’m genuinely sorry to see this because elder abuse should never be tolerated, no matter what form it takes. But I hope you won't think it in bad taste if I mention that it doesn’t seem like a really great idea to have powerful US Senators who are so old and infirm that they can actually be victims of elder abuse.
"Rich Men North of Richmond" Singer Speaks Out
I expected that out-of-nowhere viral sensation Oliver Anthony would get attacked by liberal elites for writing and singing the hard-hitting protest song “Rich Men North of Richmond,” about what the wealthy elite class is doing to working Americans. And sure enough, he did, with Rolling Stone leading the way, of course (the days when they championed protest singers who stood up to “The Man” on behalf of the little guy are long gone; they sold the tattered remnants of their soul to big government years ago.) But I didn’t expect to see Christianity Today pile on as well.
They’re bent out of shape because a reference in the song to obese welfare recipients eating fudge rounds at the expense of hard-working taxpayers is too mean and disrespects the SNAP program. I think they’ve missed the subtle difference between helping those who really need help and being understandably ticked off at those who abuse the system that others have to pay for.
But all the attacks on Anthony are like Trump indictments: they’re just making him more popular. In news that must strike terror at the DNC, the song is so powerful that a black military veteran has created a remix that adds his own rap lyrics to it, showing that its message is resonating across cultures and musical genres. Even if you don’t care for rap, this is well worth a listen.
Finally, here’s a MUST-READ: Anthony talks about who he is (his real name is Christopher Anthony Lunsford; he uses the name “Oliver Anthony” in tribute to his grandfather) and that he’s turned down $8 million in record industry offers because he doesn’t want that kind of life and would rather go on living in his camper. He says there’s “nothing special about me.”
But I think you might disagree after you read what he goes on to say about the Internet (“a parasite”), the state of society today, the importance of freedom of speech, how “people are SO damn tired of being neglected, divided and manipulated," and how “we have lost our way from God and have let false idols distract us and divide us.”
I hope Christianity Today doesn’t take issue with that.
Latest Creepy AI News:
There are plans for a new movie called “Return to Eden” that will star an AI-generated replica of James Dean, the 50’s movie icon who died in a car crash in 1955.
An AI adviser told Fox Digital, "For stars who have had their life cut short, AI is definitely an opportunity to bring them back from the dead and they can be [re]created as a new performance, which really could just build on their legacy."
News flash: This is not part of “their legacy.” They’re dead. Their legacy is complete. This is a bunch of high-tech graverobbers trying to reanimate their corpses, and the stars themselves have zero control over it. It’s disrespectful, unconscionable, and did I already mention “creepy”?
Rachel Levine needs to go
This is an era in which someone can rise to a top government position in health by spouting the correct leftist political points even if they contradict basic biology. And so we have the latest pronouncement from Biden’s “transgender” assistant secretary for Health at HHS, Admiral Rachel Levine. Fresh off of declaring that some kids go through “the wrong puberty,” Levine has now endorsed a government-backed advocacy center for sexual diversity in Alaska.
In addition to lobbying for schools to fill kids’ heads with the usual nonsense about there being multiple genders and doctors “assigning” a baby’s sex at birth, this group also wants to rewrite the language, including replacing the word “mother” with “egg producer.”
If you think that mothers should be referred to by a name that’s more appropriate for chickens, then you have no business overseeing public health, and people shouldn’t be too chicken to say so.
More evidence that we’re now living in a banana republic:
Recently-unsealed documents in Jack Smith’s prosecution of former President Trump showed that he demanded Twitter provide him with tons of Trump’s private information without notifying Trump, including access to his direct messages, devices used to access Twitter, GPS location data and more.
To their credit, Twitter fought the subpoena in court, arguing that some of the data might be protected by executive or attorney-client privilege. Showing no bias whatsoever, U.S. District Judge Beryl Howell questioned whether Twitter was fighting it so hard because “the new CEO (Elon Musk) wants to cozy up with the former President?” Twitter’s attorney responded that they had no interest other than litigating their Constitutional rights.
They were obviously under the delusion that Constitutional rights still apply. Even though they eventually knuckled under and secretly gave Smith Trump’s private data, it was three days after the deadline Smith demanded. So the judge fined Twitter $350,000! Yet another example of, “We will make you pay dearly for objecting to our partisan witch hunts.”
Howell scolded Twitter’s attorneys that they had no knowledge of the evidence Smith had, and that “You don’t even know the half about the very warrant you are coming in here to delay the execution of.”
Okay: now we’ve seen the evidence and heard the bogus charges. Sorry, I still don’t think that pile of manure was worth shredding the Constitution over.
A Welcome Victory for First Amendment Rights
In a welcome victory for First Amendment rights, a federal appeals court ruled that Washington, DC, officials selectively enforced an anti-graffiti statute against pro-life protesters.
During the George Floyd riots in 2020, the leftist leaders of DC didn’t merely turn a blind eye to BLM rioters, they made it clear that they were in sympathy with them. The leftist protesters were allowed to burn, loot, attack police and citizens and paint “Black Lives Matter” and “Defund the police” on any surface they wanted. They not only weren’t stopped, arrested or prosecuted but the mayor even joined in the vandalism by having a giant “Black Lives Matter” painted on a street across from the White House as a big thumb in the eye to Trump.
Meanwhile, two pro-life protesters who wrote “Pre-born Black Lives Matter” on a sidewalk outside a Planned Parenthood clinic – in CHALK! – were arrested under the city’s anti-defacement law. Obviously, DC authorities know who the real threat to their version of public order is.
The pro-life protesters challenged the arrests on grounds of blatantly selective enforcement and, astoundingly, lost. But in a 3-0 unanimous ruling, the DC Circuit Appeals Court has reversed the lower court. Judge Neomi Rao wrote:
“The government may not enforce the laws in a manner that picks winners and losers in public debates. It would undermine the First Amendment’s protections for free speech if the government could enact a content-neutral law and then discriminate against disfavored viewpoints under the cover of prosecutorial discretion. The First Amendment prohibits discrimination on the basis of viewpoint irrespective of the government’s motive.”
We should CC that to every Democrat prosecutor who’s trying to jail Trump for half a millennium for contesting an election exactly the way Democrats have done since the year 2000.
Unfortunately, this doesn’t mean the pro-life activists won the case, no matter how obvious it is that DC authorities discriminated against them. But it does revive their case and send it back to the lower court, which has to reconsider it in light of the appeals court forcing them to accept reality. There’s more on the case here:
Message to Hunter Biden re: Ukraine, from..."Robert L. Peters”??
UPDATE: Congressman James Comer is my guest this weekend on Huckabee on TBN so you shouldn’t miss it. If you missed my interview with John Solomon on Just the News it’s available online.
By now, you’ve probably seen some of the stories in the news about aliases used by Joe Biden in some of his correspondence as Vice President. The DC scribes in the media hope to “save” the President by saying that the presidential use of aliases wasn’t all that unusual.
But it’s not just the presidential use of aliases from time to time that’s concerning. It’s the context of those aliases. Under what circumstances was Joe Biden choosing to write under another name, and for what reasons?
As Kevin Downey, Jr.., writes for PJ MEDIA, when James Comer of Kentucky, chairman of the House Oversight and Accountability Committee, demanded from the National Archives every email involving Joe Biden’s family and Ukraine, several unfamiliar names started popping up that turned out to be aliases for Joseph Robinette Biden, then Vice President of the United States.
“Robert L. Peters.” “Robin Ware.” “JRB Ware.” (Of course, “JRB” stands for “Joseph Robinette Biden” --- I didn’t say they were GOOD aliases.) These were all then-Vice President Biden. This comes across like a possible attempt to subvert FOIA requests, as was Hillary Clinton’s use of a personal email server to conduct official State Department business. We shall see.
The common denominator for these communications seems to have been Ukraine. Example: a schedule for the day was sent to “[email protected]” on May 26, 2016, to advise him that he had an 8:45 prep session for a 9AM phone call with Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko. Recall that Poroshenko was the Ukrainian president whom Joe, Obama’s “point man” in Ukraine, pressured into firing lead prosecutor Viktor Shokin, who happened by pure coincidence to have been investigating Burisma Holdings. Joe is on video bragging that he tied $1 billion in aid to the immediate firing of Shokin.
Hunter Biden, who happened by pure coincidence to be on the board of Burisma Holdings, was cc’d on that email. This was one of ten emails sent to Joe Biden (well, “Robert L. Peters”) by assistant John Flynn that Hunter was copied on. At the time, both Hunter and his business partner Devon Archer were on Burisma’s board, to the tune of $83,333. Each.
Downey notes that $83,333 is exactly one-third of a monthly nut of $250,000. He’s looking into who might be receiving that other third, so stay tuned.
The website “pci.gov” no longer exists; it was shut down in 2020 after being flagged as “problematic” by DNS (Domain Name Security) in 2020. Now, Comer wants all emails involving Joe (under his various aliases), Hunter, Devon Archer, and additional Hunter business partner Eric Schwerin, who was responsible for financial disbursements. UNREDACTED. He wants all National Archives documents in which:
--- then-VP Joe Biden used a pseudonym
--- Huner Biden, Eric Schwerin or Devon Archer is copied
-- All drafts of then-VP Biden’s speech delivered to the Ukrainian Rada (their parliament) in December 2015.
--- Unrestricted special access under the PRA to Case Number 2023- to 2022-F, entitled “Email Message To and/or From Vice President Biden and Hunter Biden related to Burisma and Ukraine, (This includes some of the daily schedule emails, currently redacted.)
“If there was any overlap between Joe Biden’s official VP duties and his son’s activities in Ukraine,” Comer said, “Americans deserve to know.”
According to the NEW YORK POST, Comer is also anticipating other content that took place under pseudonyms, including possible communications regarding China. The deadline for the National Archives to comply is coming up: August 31.
Downey also notes a WhatsApp text sent from one Hunter business partner, James Gilliar, to (yes) another Hunter business partner, Tony Bobulinski, on May 20, 2017, that said, “Don’t mention Joe being involved, it’s only when u are face to face. I know u know that but they are paranoid.”
The French site Le Crisis has been working on what will be an eight-part documentary (four parts are complete) called “UkraineGate,” about the various allegations concerning the Bidens in Ukraine. (This entire series looks to be a must-see; perhaps you saw the recent video we posted of Viktor Shokin talking about what happened there.)
Don’t look for it on Facebook, though; they have declined to allow it to be posted.
Here’s REDSTATE’s take, very straightforward…
Comer released a statement on Thursday saying, “Joe Biden has stated there was ‘an absolute wall’ between his family’s foreign business schemes and his duties as Vice President, but evidence reveals that access was wide open for his family’s influence peddling. We already have evidence of then-Vice President Biden speaking, dining and having coffee with his son’s foreign business associates.”
“We also know that Hunter Biden and his associates were informed of then-Vice President Biden’s official government duties in countries where they had a financial interest. The National Archives must provide these unredacted records to further our investigation into the Biden family’s corruption.”
This story is just now picking up steam. For more information, specifically tying in that speech of Biden’s in Ukraine, be sure and see Sean Hannity’s opening segment from Thursday night...
...and his must-see segment with James Comer…
No one surpasses John Solomon for his ability to hone in on the most important information, and he has a couple of new reports on Comer’s search for these communications. Solomon explains that Comer’s demand for all these messages came after the committee unearthed that daily schedule sent from John Flynn, Biden’s personal assistant, to “Robert L. Peters” and copied to Hunter --- ONLY to Hunter --- at his email address for Rosemont Seneca Partners.
Solomon has been looking for the past two years (!) at how Joe Biden’s personal email accounts were used while he was Vice President “to forward government information or discuss foreign business with his son.” Some of the letters were personal but others were about business and politics, with Hunter even wanting to talk to his dad about a potential Treasury appointee. This is a deeper dive but highly recommended reading…
And here’s more from Solomon about the evolving story from the White House about Joe’s involvement in Hunter’s business. He lists five claims Biden and his defenders have made that “conflict with current evidence”…
REALCLEAR POLITICS points out that using pseudonyms was “a practice not uncommon among cabinet secretaries at the time.” But the use of pseudonyms, in itself, is not at issue. What is of concern is the context of that practice as used by Joe Biden with his Burisma-board son. Where is that “absolute wall” Joe has talked about?
When questions were raised about pseudonyms during the Obama administration, then-White House Press Secretary Jay Carney made light of it, saying those emails were still archived and could still be obtained through congressional inquiries and FOIA requests. (One would think, though, that this practice might at the very least put a kink in the works by adding in extra steps to retrieve those documents.) He said it was “about having a public email address, as well as one for internal, you know, workings.” I would stress that in the current situation, it really is important to find out what those, you know, ‘workings’ were.
RCP does at least acknowledge that the messages “raise questions about why the President’s son, whom the White House describes as a ‘private citizen,’ was looped into an hour-by-hour White House schedule.”
Here’s the full press release from the House Oversight Committee, which includes the text of their letter to Archivist Dr. Colleen Shogan…
RELATED READING: On Tuesday, attorneys for IRS whistleblower Gary Shapley released a full fact-check debunking claims made on CNN and CBS NEWS by Hunter attorney Abbe Lowell about the Hunter case. We learn from this that Democrat powerhouse lawyer Abbe Lowell will just say anything. Shapley’s attorneys call it “Abbe Lowell Claims vs. Reality.” Well worth your time...
And here’s something fascinating: Hunter and business partner Eric Schwerin used PR firms to quietly edit the Wikipedia entries for both Hunter and Burisma. Fake accounts were reportedly used to gradually edit unflattering details and add positive spin, such as Hunter’s association with the World Food Programme. They even added “minor mistakes” to make the edits look more realistic. I think Wikipedia is going to need a PR firm of its own after this story, because there’s just no way to trust its information.
If you can stand any more Hunter news, the case against him in Delaware has been dropped, as expected after the plea deal fell through…
...so it could be re-filed elsewhere. Judge Maryellen Noreika approved the DOJ’s motion to re-file the case somewhere other than Delaware, such as California or DC, where he’s bound to get the kid-glove treatment. Nice break for Hunter, huh?
