Biden FBI Truth

Our Institutions Are Failing Us Again — Hunter Edition

By Rod Thomson

The biggest issue regarding the Hunter Biden laptop imbroglio may not be the actual contents  and their meaning — as dangerous and potentially criminal as those are. Instead, it may be ongoing misconduct at the top levels of the FBI — an enormous threat — and the abandonment of the American people by institutions such as the media and some of America’s largest corporations.

If the contents on the laptop are true, in any normal time Joe Biden would have to drop out under the cloud of a criminal investigation and raging controversy. And the thing is, we should know if they are true, and I’m certain the FBI already does. Here’s why:

• The FBI has had the computer since December. They could have and probably did look at the receipt at the computer store to see when it was dropped off for repair to determine if the computer tech is credible. That would be 101.

• They could have, and probably did, ask the manufacturer who registered the laptop’s serial number when it was originally bought.

• They could have, and probably did, determine which retailer the manufacturer shipped the computer to and then asked the retailer for the sales receipt and the credit card, if one was used.

• They could have, and probably did, check fingerprints and DNA samples on the laptop, to determine whose they are. 

• On the contents of the laptop, the FBI has sophisticated computer forensics — far more than they would need for something not wiped — and could determine in hours the source of the emails to see if they are legit. They probably did.

None of those bullets should be in the least way controversial. Basic FBI investigative work.

Those steps will show if Hunter bought it and used it and if the information is real. The FBI could accomplish all of this in less than a week. Possibly in 24 hours. They’ve had the laptop since December. Either they did none of this, even knowing why it was delivered to them, or they did it and have told no one. Either of those scenarios is unacceptable and suggests there is a whole lot more house-cleaning that needs to go on at the FBI.

The only way around those two options is if a grand jury has been impaneled regarding the contents that we do not know about. But that seems likely to have been concluded by now, also.

AG Barr should demand the information if he does not have it already and make it public to end all the mystery. If it is not legit, tell Americans. If it is, tell Americans and tell us where the investigation stands. Otherwise, it gives the very strong appearance that the FBI is once again trying to tamper with an election by either going after one candidate on baseless charges as in the Trump-Russia probe, or covering up for a different candidate on what could be a historic scandal. Again, if it is not solid, the FBI could end this whole thing.

If the laptop’s contents, specifically the emails, are genuine, then Joe Biden is hopelessly compromised. And provably so, unlike all the Trump-Russia non-story. However, if it is all Russian disinformation, or Chinese blackmailing, Americans should know that, too. This is so easy. I just want to know the truth. But boy, in Orwell’s 1984, it’s really hard.

Joe Biden was relatively poor financially when he was first elected. He’s now a very, very wealthy man with multiple luxury homes. He did not do that on the government salaries he earned. Did his wife come from wealth? Is there any known legitimate source of revenue that could account for his wealth? The FBI could conduct financial forensics to trace, at least recently, the source of the flow of money into Joe Biden accounts — particularly if the laptop contents prove to be legitimate.

So in my mind, this whole scenario swamps the problems of a compromised Joe Biden, which are serious and substantial. This goes to the potential for even more corruption spread deeper in the FBI, the media’s total abandonment of its role in holding powerful people accountable and social media’s black-out of the well-sourced New York Post stories and censoring or locking accounts of those who try to share it.

Unlike that other thing that is always being called systemic today, this really is a systemic breakdown of necessary institutions in a free country.

My greatest concern is that, once again, we may never find out the truth and no one will be brought to justice. Former, brief Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort is sitting in jail right now for not disclosing income and for not registering as an agent for a foreign entity — both of which seem to apply to Hunter Biden, and possibly even to Joe Biden. Will this just be another example of two-tiered justice, where General Michael Flynn is financially ruined and would have gone to jail for actually doing nothing wrong, but those initiating spying on the duly elected President are making millions writing books and being contributors on national news outlets?

The systems appear to be functioning in support of the systems, not the American people. And that is truly a threat.

Biden Media Polls Trump Truth

A Single Explanation Squares Conflicting Polls

By Rod Thomson

Gallup’s most recent comparison poll for whether Americans think they are better off or worse off than four years earlier, going back to the first time Gallup asked the question, is nothing short of shocking. 

Gallup’s chart compares President Trump’s rating to previous presidents at the end of their first terms and shows him at 56 percent. Obama was 45 percent; George W. Bush was 47 percent; Bill Clinton was 38 percent and Ronald Reagan was 44 percent.

So Trump’s is the highest rating, by far. No other president was even all that close to 50 percent. And this, in the midst of a pandemic that none of the others had to deal with. It’s a truly astonishing poll result.

But it presents quite a quandary. How do we square these enormously positive results with the President’s low approval ratings and the polls showing Biden way ahead? They don’t seem as though they should exist in the same universe. 

There are more numbers doubling down on this quandary. Polls show strong public disapproval of Trump’s handling of coronavirus. Yet polls in New York State show strong public approval of Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s handling of the virus in that state — which was ground zero in the world at one point and an undeniable disaster, pulling down the rest of the nation. 

One possible reconciliation of this is that Trump’s personality is off-putting to many Americans and that colors their views of him. He does indeed create a lot of unforced errors through his undisciplined communications style. That alone seems like quite a stretch to cover either of these numbers, particularly handling the virus vis-a-vis Cuomo, who is not a particularly likeable politician.

Finally quandary number, Gallup also asked, “Please tell me whether you agree or disagree with [Trump or Biden] on the issues that mean most to you.” Forty-nine percent said they agreed with Trump on their most important issues, while 46 percent said the same thing of Biden. That would seem to largely bypass the personality question.

So what to make of these vigorously conflicting numbers? Set aside problematic polling for some Trump supporters who may not tell a pollster the truth, I think the only consistent answer explaining all of them is the media coverage of Donald Trump vs. Joe Biden.

Like The Revolutionary Act on Facebook

Any litany of the partisanized coverage would take a series of books. Let’s just take the white supremacy issue attached to Trump and not to Biden. (This matters a lot — and that it does, is further proof we are not a racist nation — so that really may influence the polls on voting.)

Trump continues to be smeared as a supporter of white supremacists, and as one himself, because they support him and he won’t denounce them. The most cited evidence is the “very fine people” in the Charlottesville incident. This is so ingrained in media thinking that Chris Wallace asked Trump about it at the first presidential debate.

But none of it is actually true. Quite demonstrably not true. He denounced white supremacists repeatedly in the very Charlottesville press conference, and the “very fine people” remark was in reference to the statues issue. Every person who has listened to the press conference or read the official transcript has had to admit that. Politico has the whole messy transcript here. Factcheck has debunked it. Even Jake Tapper admitted it. But anyone can just see it themselves without relying on dubious third-parties.

Further, there is video evidence of Trump denouncing white supremacy something like 20 different times — before Wallace asked him to. This includes interviews with people like NBC’s Chuck Todd on Meet The Press — kind of hard to miss. This video shows 20 times Trump has disavowed white supremacy, white nationalism, the KKK and so on. To quote Trump, “It’s never enough.” Which was proven when Wallace still asked it as if trying to pin an elusive Trump down on this, and people believe the lie.

Coronalessons cover

Conversely, Joe Biden has a pretty dicey record of racist remarks and actions. Did you know that Joe Biden actually called the United Daughters of the Confederacy “an organization made up of many fine people who continue to display the Confederate flag as a symbol.” Well now.

Too many Americans who will vote do not even know that Joe Biden supported segregationists, was the primary driver behind the now-controversial three-strikes law that led to heavy black incarceration and  told a black interviewer that “you ain’t black” if you don’t vote for Biden, and so many other remarks in between.

The coup de grace of the media shield for Biden is that the organizer of the Charlottesville rally was Richard Spencer, an openly proud white supremacist. But Spencer has actually endorsed Joe Biden for president. Did you know that? Most people don’t — and never will. Biden will never be asked about it.

Biden is never confronted on this actual, factual, documented racist history, while Trump is tagged with it over and over no matter what he says or does. Americans don’t think Biden is a racist. But they think Trump is despite the available evidence.

Will the media ever contrast Trump’s expanded funding of Historically Black Colleges, historic low unemployment and wage growth for black Americans under Trump or Trump’s prison reform that will allow more minor offenders to be freed for rehabilitation to Biden’s bill that resulted in “mass incarceration” or the higher black unemployment and slower wage growth during the Obama-Biden years? Will they ask Biden why he thinks more black Americans say they support Trump than any Republican in modern history?

No, on all of the above. Because asking a candidate, regardless of the answer, sets it in people’s minds. So Trump is asked about a lie over and over, and Biden is never asked about the truth — such as his intervention in Ukraine or his administration’s role in the Trump-Russia collusion hoax. He’ll never be asked by the media shield. 

And so the divergence of polls. So voters who know they are better off, like what Trump has done and is doing and even approve of his job performance, say they will not vote for him. Because they believe and are moved by the media’s portrait.

The divergence itself is one of the most telling signs of both the media’s bias and the media’s influence. Trump has done a remarkable job for the American people and they know it in their lives. They understand the pandemic is what tanked the economy, and it’s global. But the picture painted to the American people is Trump is a terrible, racist human being.

Biden Democrats Truth

Democrats “Alinsky” Their Own To Save Biden From Jail

By Cathi Chamberlain

The big question leading up to the 2020 elections is who will be the tougher challenger for President Trump, Biden or Bernie? Democrats are deeply divided. That’s a good thing.

Bernie Sanders’ message has a strong following, particularly among younger voters. For a generation, our universities have been teaching them a romanticized view of his socialism. Bernie’s ouster from the electoral process in 2016 to facilitate Hillary Clinton’s rise caused a major disruption in their party’s unity. Feelings of betrayal are still raw today. Should the Democratic establishment repeat that strategy in 2020, the party might not recover.

Yet, that’s exactly what they orchestrated when Amy Klobuchar and Pete Buttigieg inexplicably pulled out of the race just before Super Tuesday. That gave Biden a distinct advantage.

Voters who reject Bernie’s socialist agenda may feel compelled to vote for Joe Biden, the gaffe-ridden version of his former self. What they are fighting to forestall is that Biden’s past — and that of Hillary Clinton and many Democrats — is about to come roaring back just in time for November.

Trump supporters are torn between which challenger would be the President’s least harmful. On the one hand, Bernie would force a much-needed national debate about the stark differences between capitalism and socialism. This is their chance to knock socialism on its butt once and for all.

But what if the unthinkable happens and Bernie wins? If you think that’s not possible, you haven’t been paying attention to the very real possibility of massive voter fraud. And, I’m not talking about at the ballot box.

Extensive research was done by forensic internet scientist Robert Epstein, a self-described Hillary supporter who, out of alarm for the very viability of our country, begged to testify before Congress recently. He makes the case that Google has mechanisms in place to swing 10-15 million votes without anyone even knowing it. Check out his website at www.mygoogleresearch.com for more information. The implications are staggering.

On the other hand, many Trump supporters believe Biden would be the easiest to beat. To them he’s the better option, even if voter fraud handed him the office. At least, socialism will have been averted.

What most Americans fail to realize, however, is that a GOP loss in 2020, no matter which Democrat could win, would be the end of democracy as we know it. The reason is simple. Our rule of law would be forever gone. Our country would be unable to recover for at least a generation, if ever. Republicans would never be “allowed” to win another election because the Democrats would “own” election rules.

For decades the left has been able to get away with concealing the most egregious criminal conduct of its leaders. They’ve succeeded because the media ignores Democrat malfeasance and no one in either political party has stood up for truth. Until now.

Trump’s first three years in office were hand-cuffed because of the left’s Alinsky-styled, well-oiled machinery put in place over a generation ago. The plot to transform our country to socialism has its beginnings in Cloward-Piven strategies fueled by Saul Alinsky’s 13 tactics as outlined in his 1970s blockbuster book, Rules for Radicals.

Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven, sociology professors in the 60s, wrote a series of papers designed, literally, to overthrow our government. The left has been furthering those strategies, in complicity with Democrats, by using the Alinsky tactics. That America has a 78 year-old, white, self-described socialist (truthfully, a Marxist) vying for the top spot on the Presidential ticket in 2020 is proof positive that their plot has been working. Every American should be alarmed by that regardless of party.

If 2016 is any indication, Bernie is about to be sidelined once again by his own party. If that happens, the Democrats will be in complete disarray. Many are predicting violent revolt. The chaos will be hard to control. A majority of disillusioned Democratic voters will stay home. Other Bernie votes will go to Trump, as occurred in 2016. Should that happen, how will Biden fare?

Already the Trump campaign team is portraying Biden as a leftist, just to the right of Bernie. In a sense, that’s true. While Biden himself might not be a leftist, he’s become their puppet in an effort to save his own skin.

Trump and his team will work to deepen the divide in the Democratic Party between moderates and socialists. Just one day after Super Tuesday, Trump already began using Alinsky Tactic #4 against them: “Make the enemy live up to their own book of rules.” 

In a series of tweets following the results of Super Tuesday, Trump taunted establishment Democrats. Because they constantly emphasize unity in all things political, Trump understands that to win he must do everything he can to cause a schism in their party. It’s what they’ve done to him since he was elected. Now, it’s his turn. If Republicans are smart, they’ll follow his lead. Trump’s tweets always have a targeted agenda.

The President tweeted: “The Democrat establishment came together and crushed Bernie Sanders, AGAIN! Even the fact that Elizabeth Warren stayed in the race was devastating to Bernie and allowed Sleepy Joe to unthinkably win Massachusetts. It was a perfect storm, with many good states remaining for Joe!

Trump’s intention is to create chaos and apathy in a party that has quite successfully already damaged itself by allowing socialists to infiltrate for decades. Now that the genie is out of the bottle, one of two things will happen. The party will either succumb to socialists; or, the division will split their power in two. 

The elites in the Democratic Party understand the danger all too well. Even former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid came out of retirement to weigh in. Just before Super Tuesday, he predicted that the Party could be saved “only if Democrats unite behind the leader best equipped to defeat Trump and secure Democratic majorities in Congress. We must embrace a candidate who can stabilize our institutions, provide a positive road map for the future and soothe the nation’s trauma after four years of this president.” In other words, butt out Bernie.

It’s likely that Biden will emerge victorious, albeit bloodied up a bit. When he does, he has the real fight of his life on his hands. This one likely the very reason he entered the race in the first place.

Never in history has a presidential candidate faced as many criminal allegations as does Joe Biden today. As his gaffes continue to mount, serious charges of corruption against him ought to be the American voter’s bigger focus. Once again the mainstream “fake news” media, complicit with their Democratic partners, think that hiding truth from the public will, in the long run, strengthen their position. They could not be more wrong.

Little public attention is being drawn to the allegations behind the Ukraine scandal involving Biden and his son Hunter. It’s about to be blown wide open. When it does, those with Trump Derangement Syndrome will feel betrayed far worse than they did after the election of 2016.

Former Ukrainian chief prosecutor Viktor Shokin has been quietly gaining retribution against Biden for years. According to respected investigative journalist John Solomon, Shokin “has long alleged he was fired because he would not stop investigating the Burisma Holdings firm that employed Hunter Biden….” Those efforts have recently started paying off.

Last month the highest court in Ukraine ruled that “Shokin’s lawyers had provided sufficient evidence to warrant a probe and ‘obliged the authorized officials’ …  to accept the ex-prosecutor’s complaint and ‘start pre-trial investigation of the reported data….’” It’s going to get ugly for the Bidens.

Trump detractors will continue accusing the President of using his office for political gain against his opponent. But once the mounting evidence is exposed, another possibility will emerge. Joe Biden is in a fight for his life. And, running for the highest office in the world has nothing to do with We the People. 

That the Democrats have, once again, allowed so tainted a candidate to run for President is no mere coincidence. It is an attempt to cover up far worse behavior by others than just the Bidens in Ukraine. 

In 2016 Hillary and company were confident she would win the presidency and that all criminal activity would be buried forever. This time, their nightmare is ever more real: Donald J. Trump in the White House for four more years.

Thanks to the painstaking years’ long investigations by Judicial Watch, Hillary’s email server cover-up is also finally getting a re-examination. She has been called to testify, again. This time she must do so in person and without the protections of Comey. According to Town Hall: “Clinton has argued that she has already answered questions about this and should not have to do so again, but D.C. District Court Judge Royce C. Lamberth said in his [recent] ruling that her past responses left much to be desired.”

Lamberth emphasized that “those responses were either incomplete, unhelpful, or cursory at best. Simply put, her responses left many more questions than answers.” 

The D.C. District Court has called two additional witnesses to testify, as well. Hillary’s former chief of staff, Cheryl Mills and Paul Combetta, Hillary’s IT specialist who was responsible for the intentional physical destruction of Clinton’s emails.

In my book, Rules for Deplorables: A Primer for Fighting Radical Socialism (RFD), I spent several pages outlining the cover-up of Hillary’s email destruction. You can bet Judicial Watch has dug up a whole lot more in the year and a half since.

Sydney Powell, the former federal prosecutor now defending Gen. Michael Flynn, told the Daily Caller: “‘The Weiner laptop almost certainly contains the answers to the public’s questions about all things Clinton – her scandals, the Clinton Foundation pay-to-play, obstruction of justice and also possible espionage act violations.” Comey’s handling of Hillary’s destroyed emails was a cover-up, plain and simple.” (RFD, pg. 183)

And this is the real reason there’s so much pressure on Bernie to get out of the race. Joe Biden has real skin in the game. As do all the wicked establishment figures involved – Democrats and Republicans alike. With Biden in place, his, Hillary’s and many other so-called leaders’ crimes will be forever buried. 

But, don’t think for a moment that removing Bernie Sanders will ensure our country is safe from socialism. That will only be a short-term reprieve. The left is in full control of the Democratic Party. They realize that the majority of Americans aren’t quite ready for full-blown socialism yet. Biden is not their best chance at toppling Trump, but he is their best blackmail option for controlling criminal prosecutions going forward.

In the coming months, you can bet Alinsky Tactic #8 will be in full swing. “Keep the pressure on” will be the directive to the leftist-entrenched media, educational systems, Hollywood, social media, government and corporate America from now through November 3. They will be throwing everything they’ve got at Trump and we’d better be ready for it. Whatever our personal feelings about our President may be, we must come together in this final effort to save America.

When Trump targets Biden for his illegal activity in Ukraine, we must stand 100% united with him. And, we must not let up.

This is not the time for apathy. Nor is it a moment for indecision. We truly are in a place in history where our very freedoms could be lost forever. This is war and we must win it by any means necessary.

There is only one option to save our country. If we lose in November, we will not get a second chance. Vote 2020: Trump or Socialism!
