Hunter Biden's CEO in a China venture drops multiple bombshells
[American Thinker] An email recovered from Hunter Biden's hard drive had people asking who "the big guy" is. That's the cryptic identifier given to someone on whose behalf Hunter Biden would hold 10% of the equity in a deal with China's largest private energy company. Thanks to Tony Bobulinski, who was part of that deal, we've learned that "the big guy" is Joe Biden. And while the "big guy" email dates from a few months after Biden had left the White House, it has important ramifications.

Here are the players:

#1  Unbelievable that this story isn't known to every American and that Biden has not withdrawn on account of this overwhelming evidence that he's a lying mafioso who uses his son to trade on his high office.

The man was hired by the Bidens to run their company. He was the company CEO.

Bobulinski has confirmed the authenticity of the emails that were sent from Hunter's laptop. Hunter's lawyer confirmed that it's his client's laptop. There is no doubt at this point.

The leading media outlets did not suppress other breaking stories involving corruption allegations in this way. No one paused to get Julie Swetnick or Christopher Steele's bullshit.

An obvious gift to Biden that amounts to an in-kind political contribution. Criminal acts by our media.

#2  I too, find it difficult to believe that Plugs hasn't withdrawn and thrown the entire election into total chaos. Of course there is still time.
Posted by: Besoeker || 10/24/2020 8:37 Comments || Top||

#3  Perhaps in a bit of fratricide, the Dems/MSM play along with this charade, and, should Biden win, then the Dems go in or the kill with impeachment plans or Biden simply hangs it up for "health reasons", and, voilà, Madame President Harris... perhaps the plan all along.
Posted by: Clem || 10/24/2020 9:09 Comments || Top||

#4  How about this theory: (as proposed by a friend yesterday over beer and burgers): This whole scandal exposure was timed and orchestated by the Deep State, knowing full the MSM would not cover it and there are enough never-Trumpers still in place within the gov't to slow walk anything of substance. Then supposing Joe wins the election he only hangs on long enough to get sworn in, then resigns due to the scandal or dementia. Either way, the country is left with Harris and her non-elected choice of VP.

#5  Ref #4: Either way, the country is left with Harris and her non-elected choice of VP.

I'll take 'who is Cory Booker' for $100. Alex.

#7  Rummor going around that the nude pictures of an underage girl on Hunter's laptop is his neice.

#8  underage girl on Hunter's laptop is his neice

Would that be the daughter of his dead brother's widow (whom he was diddling)?

He's not "troubled" or a "wayward son." He's a disgusting psychopath.

Biden Calls A Lid Until Election Day
[Babylon Bee] WILMINGTON, DE—Having completed the final presidential debate, Biden’s campaign has now announced they’re calling a lid until Election Day.

"Biden needs the next eleven days to prepare for his acceptance speech," Biden’s campaign manager Jen O'Malley Dillon told reporters as she kept an eye on poll numbers. "So do not try to ask him questions or get statements from him, because that’s just going to confuse him."

Dillon then offered that reporters could instead talk to Kamala Harris, but no one wanted to talk to Kamala Harris. They really had a number of questions for Biden, but Dillion explained that there is now a time lock on Biden’s basement and that it would be impossible to open the door and get to him before Election Day evening. "Just basic campaign stuff," Dillion explained.

Campaign aides are working feverishly to help Biden recoup from his exhausting debate with Trump and are hoping to keep him going at least until the inauguration when they will likely impeach him for corruption if he's still alive at that point.

President Donald Trump later came by to make fun of Biden for hiding but was unable to find him due to the blacked-out curtains in every window of the mansion.

#1  Lost $1. Given Sleepy Joe's sedentary proclivity, I figured this article was legit. Who knows..it may yet turn out to be true and the Bee can claim the headline.
Posted by: Warthog || 10/24/2020 7:39 Comments || Top||

#2  A lid is one ounce of weed, correct?
Posted by: Clem || 10/24/2020 7:45 Comments || Top||

#4  It's Harris and her hand picked VP the Deep State want. Plugs is rapidly losing airspeed and altitude. He won't last much longer. Hunter has likely picked his assisted care facility.
Posted by: Besoeker || 10/24/2020 8:27 Comments || Top||

#5  Yeah - this was one Bee article that surprised me. It sounded just real enough from the headline.
Posted by: Rambler in Virginia || 10/24/2020 11:10 Comments || Top||

#6  Don't worry, guys. The Bee has had a way of being 'out front' of reality time to time.
Right now he needs to go to Scranton and see if they still have his plaque up in his elementary school.

#7  "Calling a lid" always gives me an image of Oscar the Grouch in his trash can on Sesame Street.
Posted by: ed in texas || 10/24/2020 11:24 Comments || Top||

#8  Oscar was more coherent, though.

#11  *Hmmm* Too close to call.

Bari Weiss: Stop Being Shocked. American liberalism is in danger from a new ideology‐one with dangerous implications for Jews
[Tablet] Can you believe ...?

Perhaps no question has been repeated more times in reaction to more events this year than that one.

The most recent major outrage in the Jewish community, now several news cycles behind us, came on the Shabbat before Yom Kippur—the holiest day in the Jewish calendar—when many American Jews seemed dumbfounded by what was to me predictable news: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, progressive superstar, had pulled out of an event honoring Yitzhak Rabin, the Israeli prime minister assassinated because of his efforts to make peace with the Palestinians. Rabin was, as Bill Clinton said at his funeral, "a martyr for his nation’s peace."
