    Confirmation bias from the left will allow them to be blinded to the flaws of Biden and the illicit activities he and his family have allegedly engaged, supported by information from the laptop that Hunter now acknowledges as his. Not much different than the bias Trump supporters have to the irregular activities it appears he has engaged (no, government documents do not belong to him, regardless of executive privilege to “declassify.”

    Neither side is willing to look at the fact and circumstances that affect “their side.”

    Since gocomics commenters are dominated by the left, look for vast support of Biden or gaslighting that Trump did it too.

    The Dims are in crisis. They pushed a senile, doddering fool into the White House and now they are stuck with a doddering old fool who barely remembers putting his socks on in the morning. Biden believes his own hype and believes he should run again. So what can the Dims do? They are tied to the anchor they have on their sinking ship.

    A bunch of non-burgers there. Biden owns his gaffes, of course, but he’s far from the only pol who has made stupid remarks; take W for example, who used the term “crusade” when hawking his debacle in Iraq specifically and the Muslim world in general. That went down real well, didn’t it? The Afghanistan and border crisis in Lisa’s asinine “cartoon” were debacles Biden inherited from previous GOP administrations. In fact, Biden’s administration had increased both the collaring of “illegals” and endeavored to rationalize the refugee and asylum process. Trump on the other hand separated children from their parents and put them in cages. Hunter’s problems have nothing to do with the president’s performance any more than the sins of the father are visited on the son. As regards the classified document issue, it’s clear that Trump’s involvement is both MUCH worse and that he violated several federal statutes; Trump may even be charged with treason if he disseminated those documents to foreign countries. Can you say Julian Assange or Chelsea Manning?

    Of the things listed as baggage the one that is actually baggage (at this point) is Afghanistan. The messiness of the pullout might have been avoided. But will that register/matter with the electorate in 2024? The one not shown which is mostly true for many who vote Democrat is age. Curious that that wasn’t included.

    While hunter is saying that his data and emails have been released and given to others, the question is that he left his laptop in the possession of the computer shop long enough to become the possession of the shop. If he signed a contract upon giving the laptop to the shop that if he did not pick up the laptop in 90 days, it would become the possession of the shop, he no longer has ownership to anything on it.

    Of course…

    Attorney general whom Hunter Biden demanded launch laptop inquiry has deep ties to first family.

    “Justice requires a disinterested prosecutor who will pursue the truth without bias,” Tom Jones, the president of the American Accountability Foundation, a conservative watchdog, told the Washington Examiner.

    “Considering Kathy Jennings’s long history with the Biden family, including working for Beau Biden, coupled with the wrecking ball of betrayal, deceit, and disappointment, that Hunter has taken to that family, coupled with the Biden family’s near royal status in Delaware, it is hard to imagine any circumstance in which Kathy Jennings or the Delaware Attorney General’s office could approach this issue objectively,” said Jones.

    US sees surprise hiring surge as unemployment edges down

    US job gains surged unexpectedly last month as unemployment slipped to its lowest rate in more than five decades, government data showed Friday, indicating strength in the labor market despite efforts to ease economic activity.

    This could prove concerning to policymakers, with risks that elevated wages could feed into inflation.

    While the US central bank has tempered its aggressive campaign to rein in prices on signs that the world’s biggest economy is cooling, the latest figures could steer it towards more interest rate hikes than expected.

    The United States defied expectations to add 517,000 jobs in January, nearly double the December figure, after a five-month slowdown in hiring, said the Labor Department on Friday.

    “Job growth was widespread, led by gains in leisure and hospitality, professional and business services, and health care,” the report added.

    Employment in manufacturing and construction showed resilience as well, despite a slowdown in activity in both sectors.

    The jobless rate edged down to 3.4 percent, a level last seen in 1969, according to government figures.

    Now republicans have 2 years to ruin every thing.

    The revelations coming from Hunter Biden’s laptop — and the way they have been hidden from public view — have enormous implications for Joe Biden’s presidency, and for every citizen of the West.

    America’s national press is finally telling the tangled story of financial corruption in the Biden family. Major outlets infamously ignored the d@mning evidence that came to light when Hunter Biden’s “laptop from h3ll” was recovered in late 2020. In doing so, they knowingly helped sway the presidential election in Joe Biden’s favor.

    But with Biden now safely in office, and the growing likelihood that Hunter will soon be indicted on federal charges, cable news channels and left-wing newspapers are in damage-control mode. Their ongoing silence would make them complicit in one of the biggest scandals in American history, so mainstream outlets are racing to cover two years of missed reporting.The most recent revelations concern Hunter and his Uncle Jim — Joe Biden’s brother — and their financial entanglements with a now-defunct Chinese conglomerate, CEFC China Energy.

    Together, Hunter and Jim collected US$3.8 million in “consulting fees” from CEFC, a company that acted as a front for China’s insidious Belt and Road Initiative. Though CEFC operated under the guise of a private enterprise, it was effectively an arm of the Chinese Communist Party and had close ties to the Chinese military.

    The Bidens’ lack of skills and experience in energy consulting has triggered alarm bells for investigators. The more likely reason for this financial arrangement is that Joe Biden’s son and brother were enriching themselves from the Biden surname, while China gained access to, and influence in, the White House.

    Joe Biden was Vice President to Barack Obama in 2009-2017, a period that crucially overlaps with some of Hunter’s “consulting” work.

    As legal scholar and analyst Jonathan Turley commented last week, the trove of evidence on Hunter’s laptop is

    basically a step-by-step description of one of the biggest influence-peddling schemes in history. The fact is that influence-peddling has been a Biden family business for a long time. They have been rather notorious and open about it. The Fords are known for cars and the Corrs are known for beer and the Bidens are known for influence-peddling.

    Among the Senators’ recent revelations are that the Bidens shared a joint bank account with CEFC under the name of Hudson West III. It is into this account that Hunter and Jim received dirty Chinese money and freely transferred large sums back to their own business and personal accounts.

    In a tale with many twists, a CEFC associate named Patrick Ho was being surveilled by America’s intelligence agencies for his corrupt activities in Africa. All of this took place while Ho was financially involved with Hunter and Jim Biden.

    When Ho was eventually arrested by United States authorities for bribery and money laundering in 2018, CEFC paid Hunter an additional US$1 million to act as Ho’s defence attorney.

    Hunter had no experience in criminal law, raising another red flag for investigators about the purpose of the payments. Not surprisingly, Patrick Ho ended up in prison.

    So why do these developments matter?

    Why: President Joe Biden is CompromisedWhat the Washington Post failed to highlight in their recent report was any connection between Hunter and Jim’s shady financial dealings, and President Joe Biden. The evidence that Joe Biden is involved in the corruption, however, is abundant.

    On the eve of the 2020 election, one of Hunter’s former business associates, Tony Bobulinski, made a bombshell allegation. He told live TV news cameras that Hunter and Jim introduced him to Joe Biden on May 2, 2017. At that meeting, the Biden family openly discussed their plans to go into business with CEFC, plans with which Joe Biden was “plainly familiar”.There is clear evidence that Joe Biden was financially benefitting from his son and brother’s overseas ventures. Not only did Joe and Hunter Biden share joint bank accounts, but Hunter’s business partners filed Joe’s taxes.

    Additionally, Hunter paid off renovations at his father’s Delaware home, and also paid for his dad’s private phone lines during this time. Records even show Hunter complaining that “half” his salary was going to his “Pop” (Joe).

    One particularly infamous email showed how the equity of the Bidens’ CEFC investment would be distributed among the family and other investors. It revealed that Hunter would be tasked with holding onto 10 per cent “for the big guy” — a not-so-subtle reference to his father, Joe Biden.

    Media and Big Tech Should Be Actively Distrusted

    Almost all that we know about the Biden family’s corruption was publicly available weeks before Americans went to the polls to decide between Donald Trump and Joe Biden. The problem is that a conspiracy of silence and cover-up between the media and Big Tech meant the truth was hidden from mainstream America, and available only to those willing to dig for it.

    Twitter locked the New York Post’s account for their breaking exposé on Hunter’s laptop, concealing the truth from millions of undecided voters. The Big Tech giant censored innumerable other accounts that tried to share the report, including that of the Press Secretary of the sitting President. Facebook also limited distribution of the story.

    The prestige press refused to cover the scandal and waited until 51 former intelligence officials came up with a bogus claim that the laptop was likely planted by Russia to swing the election in Donald Trump’s favour. The officials had no evidence for this, and even admitted as such.

    Nevertheless, the “Russian disinformation” smear was the story latched onto by the all the trusted voices in media, right up until election day. The truth was never given any oxygen.

    The Pressing Need for DiscernmentWhether or not Hunter is arrested, and whether or not Joe Biden is implicated in the alleged crimes, the West has just witnessed one history’s biggest containment operations.

    Powerful corporations entrusted with telling us the truth, instead used their influence to cover up for what may be one of the most corrupt first families the United States has ever seen. Moreover, their efforts likely swung the most hotly contested election of modern times.

    It goes without saying that not everything fed to us by the legacy media is untrue. But discerning true from false takes diligence. It also requires triangulation: testing their claims against trusted conservative and independent outlets.

    The same outlets that claimed Hunter Biden’s laptop was fake now tell us there are dozens of genders; men can get pregnant; anyone who feels like a woman should be allowed to compete in women’s sports; and that young children should be taught sex ed and even be castrated.

    Consider yourself warned: approach mainstream reporting with great caution, or risk being drowned in an ocean of lies.-Kurt Mahlburg

    Buh-Bye Felicia.. proof that Harvard no longer equals intelligence

    Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government announced Thursday that it will shut down its years-long “misinformation” research program, parting ways with the program’s director who was notably skeptical of the Hunter Biden laptop story.

    But even after the Times and others confirmed the authenticity of the younger Biden’s laptop and acknowledged that it was prematurely dismissed – in many cases – as “Russian disinformation,” Donavan seemingly remained skeptical.

    “What we see as researchers when they’re trying to make a story happen time and time again, and it doesn’t, then you start to see the intensification and adaptation of tactics. So, we pretty much expected more and different styles of attack, including a leak, but was really suspicious of it, is you’ve got someone with millions of dollars. He can’t afford Geek Squad at Best Buy to come to his house for the laptop that he’s evidence of crimes on? I mean, it’s really hard to believe,” Donavan said.

    Her announced Harvard departure comes as Hunter Biden appeared to admit that the laptop at the center of a federal investigation belongs to him in a new letter from his lawyers, prompting widespread criticism of mainstream media organizations and prominent voices who were quick to write it off. – Fox News

    @jskoenig:Yes, the administration’s glass house is finally clearing, and, as they say, the truth will out. The complicity of the MSM in covering up the sordid ‘Hunter laptop’ business to get their favorite friends elected is especially sordid. It sullies their reputations, now and in times to come.

    BTW, Trump was hardly an ideal president, but he only was elected because so many Americans were fed up with being bullied by the Priests and Priestesses of the Religion of Woke.

    No, I do NOT support racism or suppression of whole populations, but that includes not suppressing the average American. Treating ‘the people’ as peasants to be manipulated and controlled is NOT a sign of a superior nature. WOKE bullies are still bullies.

    -WSJClassified-Documents Probe Highlights Biden Family’s Penn Ties

    After he left the vice presidency, the Penn Biden Center was launched with the university’s backing, paying Mr. Biden about $900,000 and serving as a landing pad for some of his top aides.

    What the WSJ fails (on purpose) to mention is where did the money come from? China. Basic money laundering 101.

    The available data show that organizations in China gave $67.6 million in gifts and contracts to Penn between Jan. 1, 2013, and June 30, 2019. Penn received the third-highest amount of funding from groups in mainland China, behind Harvard and the University of Southern California, a Bloomberg analysis found this month.

    Nothing to see here, move along. No we didn’t sell SPR to China, no tik tok is not gathering data for China, no China didn’t cover up a leak of bioweapons, no China is not an adversary.
