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.

The Democrats are running lots of ads claiming that Joe Biden’s economic policies will create 7 million new jobs and put more money in workers’ pockets. If you’re like me, you’re asking yourself, “If he knows how to do that, why didn’t he do it during the 47 previous years he spent in office?”

But the Hoover Institution think tank did more than just wonder: they dug deep into Biden’s plan to estimate what would actually be the economic results of his proposals for massive new taxes, regulations and government micro-management.

Here’s the full study.

And if you’re in a hurry, here’s an excerpt from the summary that puts it in a nutshell:

“We conclude that in the long run, Biden’s agenda would reduce full-time equivalent employment per person by about 3 percent, the capital stock per person by about 15 percent, real GDP per capita by more than 8 percent, and real consumption per household by about 7 percent. Relative to the CBO’s 2030 projections for these variables, this suggests there will be 4.9 million fewer employed individuals, $2.6 trillion less in GDP, and $1.5 trillion less consumption in that year alone. Median household income in 2030 would be $6,500 less.

While these effects may seem large, they are actually conservative estimates of the negative impact of the full Biden agenda.”

I’m not an economist, but that sure sounds to me like more unemployment and lower pay. If you lived through the Obama/Biden years, this may sound eerily familiar to you. But if your memory has been short-circuited by four years of media propaganda, maybe this will help refresh it.

Saturday in San Francisco, a small group of Trump supporters tried to hold a rally for free speech outside Twitter headquarters. But hundreds of what the media called “counter-protesters” (but which more accurately should be described as “fascist goons”) physically assaulted them. They punched Philip Anderson, the organizer of the event, in the face, breaking his front teeth as they taunted him and called him racist names (he’s African-American.)

There’s a photo of one of the hate-filled thugs in the act at that link. He has a bandana over his lower face, but would it really be that difficult for the police to identify and arrest him? Even in San Francisco?

Anderson will need extensive dental work to fix his teeth. Fortunately, a GoFundMe account quickly raised more than enough to cover the bill. His response to the assault on Twitter: “Joe Biden, do you still think Antifa is ‘just an idea?’”

A check of Antifa social media communications showed that this was organized in advance with the intention of attacking what they called racists, fascists, Q-Anons, and other negative epithets that they attach to anyone who disagrees with their radical leftism to justify their violence.

How much longer will innocent American citizens be expected to tolerate being assaulted by these thugs until they are finally, officially branded as what they are: an anti-American domestic terrorist group? How much longer will people be expected to give up their First Amendment rights and not resort to using their Second Amendment rights when the government and the police refuse to protect them from physical assaults?

Using violence and threats to deprive Americans of exercising their civil rights is a federal crime.

The creation of those laws was inspired by the KKK. The fact that the people breaking the teeth of a black man while calling him racist names claim to be fighting racism doesn’t make them any better, or any different, from Klansmen.

Where are the Revs. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton to condemn this atrocity? Where are all the Hollywood liberal celebrities? Well, we all know the answers to those questions. The more important question is, where are the federal authorities to round up, arrest and prosecute to the full extent of the law these thugs and terrorists who are using violence to deprive people of their civil rights? Local authorities refused to act. Now, they’re committing a federal crime, and it’s time for the useless local authorities to step aside and let the feds move in and stop it.

"Joe Biden still has not been forced to explain why he fired Ukraine’s top prosecutor at precisely the moment his son was being paid to get him to fire Ukraine’s top prosecutor.”

That was Tucker Carlson on his Thursday show, which aired live before Biden’s televised town hall was over. Sure enough, that observation was still true afterward, because Biden wasn’t asked ONE QUESTION about this. And no wonder; anyone invested in a Biden win 2-1/2 weeks from now must know how damaging the story would be if it got the attention it deserves.

Biden also has never said whether or not he personally benefited from son Hunter’s foreign business dealings. He still insists he’s never talked with his son about them, not once. But according to one of the more telling emails on what is almost certainly Hunter’s discarded laptop, “Pop” benefited quite a lot. “I love you all,” it reads. “But I don’t receive any respect and thats fine I guess – works for you apparently. I Hope you all can do what I did and pay for everything for this entire family for 30 years. It’s really hard. But don’t worry unlike Pop I won’t make you give me half your salary.”

What? Joe Biden was pocketing half of what Hunter made?

No doubt Hunter wouldn’t have made the big bucks without his father’s last name, and he has acknowledged as much. So in a way, it might seem fitting that his father would take a generous cut. That is, if his father weren’t VICE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. Rudy Giuliani describes this as “a racketeering case.”

Tucker went on to talk about Thursday's update in the NEW YORK POST (don’t look for it on Twitter, as they’ve deemed the whole story “unsafe”), which explores Hunter’s dealings in China. Here, we’re talking about tens of millions of dollars, even hundreds of millions and more. Another email on the laptop reads, “At the moment, there’s a provisional agreement the equity will be distributed as follows: Ten held by Hunter for the big guy...” The “big guy” surely was Joe Biden. So, can this money destined for him be traced back to the CCP?

According to Miranda Devine, a columnist for the NY POST, one deal with a Chinese energy company netted Hunter Biden $10 million a year for “introductions alone.”

He was also on a $1 million retainer from another company for “legal services.” Devine poses the question that, since the gravy train continued when Biden was no longer Vice President, what exactly were the Chinese paying for? I assume she’s wondering what we all are: were they anticipating the day when Biden would be running for President and likely becoming Commander-in-Chief in, say, January of 2021? They clearly want him to win.

This brings to mind the Clinton Global Foundation, whose billions in donations dried up soon after Hillary lost in 2016.

Ironically, by blocking a story that involves the the CCP, Twitter and Facebook are acting JUST LIKE the CCP. (Really, who needs Russia to “meddle” in our elections when we have Twitter and FB to do it?) And now Democrats and the media (but I repeat myself) are using Big Tech’s rejection of the Biden story as evidence that it’s not true. They’re saying it’s “debunked” when it’s not at all.

As Tucker pointed out, Twitter and FB aren’t claiming it's a hoax but are simply cutting off communication about it. I hope it’s not getting tiresome for me to bring up George Orwell, but these people really are acting like the Ministry Of Truth. They want censorship if it works in their favor. And they don’t mean just to shut down some obscure blog, though that would be wrong as well, but even to censor major publications to silence a story they don't want. Likewise, they’ll pass along an easily-debunked lie if the lie is what they DO want. They’ve crossed a big red line.

This should scare the pants off you.

According to Ms. Devine, the Biden campaign is backing off its original response, which was that his official calendar had no record of his meeting with the Burisma official who’d emailed Hunter a thank-you for their meeting. Now they’re saying they “would not rule out the possibility” of a meeting, but it would’ve just been “informal” and “cursory.” Okay, but the official had referred to “spending some time” with the Vice President. How much time?

She concluded by saying, “Maybe he will answer it tonight when he does a town hall. I doubt whether he’ll be asked any really tough questions, though.” (Wow, she must be psychic!)

Fortunately, outside the mainstream, there’s still some real journalism going on, such as this update from THE EPOCH TIMES.

Yesterday, I expressed curiosity about the “backstory” of the abandoned MacBook Pro, notably how it came to be subpoenaed by the FBI –- where it seems to have been deep-sixed around the time of the Trump impeachment (hmm). Seems I was not alone.

Giuliani says he received a copy of the hard drive three weeks ago from his attorney, Robert Costello, who got it from John Paul Mac Isaac, the owner of a computer repair shop in Wilmington, Delaware. (Isaac had had the laptop for 90 days and was unable to contact the owner.) Steve Bannon negotiated a deal and passed it to the NY POST, which also did its own authentication. This deal allowed Giuliani to later disclose the material to other media as he is now doing. (This begs the question: Can Twitter shut them ALL down?)

What I’m most curious about is the FBI subpoena --- what was that about? Mac Isaac gave Costello a copy of what he said was the subpoena, dated Dec. 9, 2019, used to seize the laptop. (Fortunately, he copied the hard drive before he turned it over.) Sen. Ron Johnson said Thursday that he wants the FBI to "come clean." What were they doing with this? Why did they sit on it?

The FBI and the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Delaware declined to confirm the authenticity of the subpoena. As in the old song, “They didn’t say yes, they didn’t say no.”

There are some inconsistencies with Mac Isaacs as a witness; the EPOCH TIMES piece mentions these. Still, they have little to do with whether or not this laptop is the real deal or a hoax. These emails are either real or they’re not, regardless of Mac Isaac’s motivations or the fact that Giuliani is Trump’s attorney. It’s understandable that Giuliani and other Trump advocates are working overtime to get the truth out, because “journalists” have utterly failed to do their job and don’t even care if Biden and his family are corrupt.
