“God doesn’t choose our President. The FBI does.”
I wish we could take credit for that line, a response to President Biden saying he’d run again “God willing,” but it was from Jesse Watters Tuesday evening. He was making the point that the FBI put Joe Biden in the White House (by hiding his son’s laptop, among other things), and they can take him out. That’s a bold statement that gets no argument from us.
Then Jesse went on to state the obvious: that the ‘memo’ has gone out that it’s time to dump Kamala, at least as running mate for ‘24. That’s right about on schedule. Big clue: the WASHINGTON POST did “the” kick-off story to start building unease, saying, “Some Democrats are worried about Harris’s political prospects.” (Really??)
WAPO cited racism, but they know the problems with Kamala transcend race and gender; “checking the boxes” won’t be enough. She was chosen the first time to check particular boxes that the DNC thought would most help Biden win, and her name on the ticket might have helped with that, but we soon found out she is not a serious person. No need to address all the reasons again; she is simply not acceptable.
Again, this has nothing to do with race or gender. As Jesse said, “Polls show Michelle Obama would be coronated if she ran.” Oprah, too, he said, “could have been President any time she felt like it.”
Oprah’s star might have faded a bit, but recall that we’ve said for a long time --- my writer Laura Ainsworth would take bets if she were a betting woman --- that Michelle Obama is waiting in the wings. Tucker Carlson must have the same crystal ball, or at least notices the same hints in the news, because he addressed that Monday night. Michelle’s got a new book out and a lot of perfectly-timed hype. There’s a surge of “manufactured racism” in the news. Michelle does interviews, Oprah-style, about going through menopause. Democrats have GOT nobody else. And, as we reported, Michelle answered the question of whether Biden should run again with a long, loooong pause, some stuttering, and “I will have to see.”
Right now, Democrats are maneuvering to take out both Joe AND Kamala, with a plot that no doubt was hatched long ago.
But now, to the matter of knocking out Joe in time to send in a new presidential nominee. Attention is starting to be focused on the documents he has stored at the University of Delaware. This is a massive amount of paper. As reported by the Newark Post in 2012 (and thanks to Sean Hannity for reporting this), 33 pallets of boxes, two trucks’ worth, were moved to the basement of the university library. That’s 1,800 cartons, plus 415 gigabytes of electronic records, all still being shielded from view.
As for the classified documents we know about, we’ve finally learned the FBI did search the Penn Biden Center, not just the President’s house. They just didn’t tell the public.
And on Tuesday, the New York Post reported that an email found on Hunter Biden’s “laptop from hell” from Hunter to the aluminum company Alcoa Inc. promising information on Russian oligarchs is “raising fresh concerns about the first son’s access to classified documents.”
In 2011, Hunter, always on the hunt for more $$$$$ to feed his lifestyle, offered on behalf of his company Rosemont Seneca to sell intelligence on Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska and his “elite networks” to Alcoa. In an email to Alcoa VP Daniel Cruise, he said he would charge them “fees of $25,000 for phase one of the project [and] $55,000 for refined analysis.” But note: this isn’t really breaking news; Miranda Devine at the New York Post first reported this in --- believe it or not --- October 2021, before her book LAPTOP FROM HELL had even come out and long before we had the context of Hunter’s access to classified documents at his dad’s home.
Alcoa didn’t think the data analysis “was worth the full $55,000.” But they were interested in “the list of Russian elites connected to OD [Deripaska] that would not otherwise be on Government Affairs team radar, including various Russia Committee Heads, Union leaders or Ministers.”
How else would Hunter have information like this if not through his dad? It sounds like something from the State Department. If it was classified, this was a potential risk to national security, and criminal as well. Even if it wasn’t classified, this was shady information-trafficking and influence-peddling. Reading the story in light of what we now know about Hunter’s business dealings and his likely access to government secrets is stunning. “Some junior staff of the Obama State Department,” Miranda wrote, “were alarmed by Hunter’s connections to Russian oligarchs and role in Burisma.” Seriously, read this.
Here’s how the DAILY MAIL reported it.
They include a quote from Deripaska that takes on new dimension, given what we know today about the Russia Hoax and the role of Twitter and other social media in spreading it. “I cannot help but marvel at the utter stupidity of a part of the American establishment,” the oligarch said, “as they persist in spinning this story about the supposedly colossal role of Russians in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.” In other words, HE didn’t buy the Russia Hoax. He thought it was DC’s own fault for alienating Americans so much that they voted for an “operetta character” like Trump. They were ready to vote for anyone but the “bribe-ridden members of the Clinton clan,” he said.
So, he didn’t blame Russian bots for Hillary’s loss. This Deripaska certainly has a way with words. Ironically, though, look at the “bribe-ridden clan” we have in the White House now.
Something else we’ll pass along, because it’s in the news. DAILY MAIL is reporting that, as evidenced by some of his laptop material, Hunter pressured an assistant to occasionally have naked, showering video sex with him, saying he would withhold her pay if she didn’t. There are apparently four assistants (and counting) with whom he had a sexual relationship. I’ll link to the report at DAILY MAIL, though I’ll warn you, it’s pretty lewd. Still, it seems significant if only to show how vulnerable Hunter might have been to “honeypot” spies.
The House Oversight Committee, led by Kentucky Rep. James Comer, is already conducting interviews about the documents, and on Tuesday they were scheduled to hear from representatives from the National Archives. But Comer said Tuesday that the DOJ, right before the meeting, handed them a letter saying that nothing could be said about the Biden documents. They still conducted a 3+ hour transcribed interview with the counsel; not sure what they talked about. Their main take-away, according to Comer: “There IS a double standard at work here.”
Comer is focused on getting the “flagged” Biden bank records. The information he wants is being withheld by the DOJ and White House, not the National Archives. And one last thing: At this point, could Karine Jean-Pierre PLEASE stop insulting everyone’s intelligence by saying the President is being “transparent”?
One of Hunter’s emails to business associates Rob Walker and James Gilliar with the subject line “Re: Dorian” discusses “taking care” of Ducka because he was “a real help early on.” “No way we don’t do it,” Hunter writes. “And if the majority says no, I’ll take it out of my salary.”
This is where we see the likely connection through Albania to CEFC and Hunter’s deals there. And this involves some incredibly corrupt individuals. Tom Rogan at the Washington Examiner wrote last September about President Biden’s tolerance for corruption in Albania under current prime minister Edi Rama, detailing Rama’s ties to the Albanian mafia and the Sinaloa cartel in Mexico. Rama’s former energy minister turned “fixer”: Dorian Ducka. (Thanks to Dan Bongino for the link.)
Hunter Biden appears to have been rubbing elbows with some extremely bad people. And today, President Biden’s tolerance for the socialist Rama administration and his lack of initiative to stop drugs at our southern border has observers scratching their heads. Is it really that confusing? More soon.
