-Lurid Crime Tales-
Hunter Biden Was Hired To Run Interference For A Corrupt Romanian Tycoon
[The Federalist] In 2016, Romanian real estate tycoon Gabriel "Puiu" Popoviciu, who was accused of orchestrating a corrupt land deal, hired Hunter Biden to "advise" him as he aimed to dodge federal prosecution. At the same time, Hunter’s father Joe Biden was claiming to be pushing Romania to clean up political corruption.

NBC News reported Hunter Biden may have simply been used as a prop while Popoviciu was evading prosecution. This is the third questionable relationship between a foreign government, the Obama administration, and the former vice president’s son.

First it was Hunter Biden sitting on the board of a Ukrainian oil company, which he was not qualified to sit on, making some $80,000 per month. Meanwhile, Joe Biden claimed to be fighting corruption in Ukraine by firing the prosecutor who was prosecuting the company on whose board Hunter Biden sat.

Hunter Biden’s potentially very lucrative investments in China have also been scrutinized recently. When given the opportunity to vindicate himself during an exclusive ABC interview this month, Hunter Biden vowed to divest himself from his monetary investments in China and claimed he would not serve on the board of any other foreign entity, like he did in Ukraine, because that appears corrupt.

"Well, this is what becomes a distraction. Because I have to sit here and answer these questions. And so that’s why I’ve committed that I won’t serve on any boards or I won’t work directly for any foreign entities when my dad becomes president," Hunter Biden said.
So the lil cokehead punk isn't divesting anything, because Plugs isn't EVER going to be POTUS
Now, the younger Biden has been accused of working and profiting in a third country ‐ Romania ‐ where his father was working to end corruption.

While it is likely Joe Biden will call his poor judgement and alleged corruption a hoax created by the Trump administration, his fellow 2020 candidates frontrunners, namely Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders, may try to criticize him as they push what they call anti-corruption plans.

After the allegations against the Biden family garnered national attention, Joe Biden’s polling numbers slipped from approximately 37 percent to his current stature at 27.2 percent. Warren is trailing behind Biden by approximately 5 points, coming in at 21.8 percent.

Funny. In a sign of what a complete, well, Shitshow the Dem
POTUS race is, Warren's poll numbers are now tanking and Biden's numbers have rebounded.

Either Democratic voters are so deranged they think anyone whom Trump attacks must necessarily be innocent of the charges, or they're desperate because Warren and Sanders are such idiots.

Or both.

-Land of the Free
The Real Coup
[American Thinker] Everyone who isn't a Democrat is talking about the coup attempts against Trump; first the fake Russian collusion story and now the fake "whistleblower" story. But the real coup is proceeding apace and has already stolen the freedom guaranteed by the Constitution to we the people.

Starting in the 1930s, politicians began stealthily transferring power from themselves, the elected representatives of we the people, to unelected bureaucrats and judges.

We the people can't get rid of bureaucrats or judges via elections, so they can operate without our consent with impunity. To get rid of them requires a significant majority of honest politicians in Congress, which hasn't been manifest for quite some time.

The politicians say the depredations of the administrators and the dishonest judges are not their, the politicians', fault, so they mislead voters into re-electing the very politicians who refuse to punish administrators and judges who violate their oath of office.

Much has been written about the rise of the administrative state, but the simple reality is that most of the rules and edicts from Washington that we the people have to follow aren't voted on or approved by the people we elect. Rather, they're ushered in by nameless and faceless government employees.

Year after year, politicians have passed laws that gave administrators essentially carte blanche to rule over we the people as they will. For example, the infamous HHS mandate that Obama's administrative state used force Catholic nuns to cooperate in providing abortions was never voted on by Congress. Rather, Congress gave the administrative state the power to work out all the details.

The bureaucrats who wield this power over we the people are paid more than the average American, and they have nearly 100% job security. Look at Lois Lerner. She admitted that people under her authority used the IRS to attack Obama's political opponents. Yet when she finally resigned, she got a great pension and a bonus!

They are a ruling class detached from we the people living in one big enclave, the D.C. bubble, and mingling mostly with their own kind. They neither know or care about what life is like for real Americans who aren't paid exorbitant salaries and who don't enjoy perpetual job security.

Yet they firmly believe that they have not only the wisdom, but the right to rule over us. No matter how bad the consequences of their actions are, they go unpunished, so there is absolutely no reason for them to actually care about what we the people want.

The power they have has been given to them by politicians so the politicians can't be blamed for what is done to we the people.

As far as anyone can tell, this administrative state, also known as the swamp, isn't constrained by anything since even the Supreme Court has ruled that courts should defer to the rulings of the administrators because those administrators supposedly have arcane wisdom denied to judges.

#1  Back at the dawn of civilization when I was getting out of school, the deal was that if you wanted a lot of money and were willing to take risks, you went to NYC or one of the other money centers; but if you were risk averse and were willing to take less money, but wanted some power, you went to DC or one of the state capitals. Now it's one stop shopping: If you want lots of power and lots of money you go to DC.

Put a little differently, I get panhandled a lot because I've got "Sucker" tattooed on my forehead. Everybody's got a little story: disabled vet, sick child, etc. I never know whether the stories are true. But what I do know about the ragged guy asking me for money is that he was never a Senator or a member of the Senior Executive Service. A lifetime of public service just pays too well.

You're not alone. Every time I realize I've been had, I take comfort in that at least I did what was written. Sometimes you know as you're being defrauded that the person is lying, but you're helpless before the compulsion to please the Man Upstairs.

Charles Barkley: 'Vice President Pence needs to shut the hell up'
[The Hill] Former NBA player Charles Barkley said that Vice President Mike Pence "needs to shut the hell up" in response to Pence’s comments blasting the NBA for being accommodating to China.

"First of all, Vice President Pence needs to shut the hell up," Barkley said during an NBA pregame on TNT. "All American companies are doing business in China."

The former NBA player added that he thought it was "unfair" that politicians were attempting "to make the NBA and our players look bad" after President Trump has started a trade war against China.
"We can do it ourselves. We don't need help"
"But I don’t understand why these holier than thou politicians ‐ if they’re so worried about China, then why don’t they stop all transactions with China?" Barkley said.

Barkley continued that he thought the judgements against Commissioner Adam Silver and LeBron James were "unfair," and that Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey is free to say what he wants but has to realize "there are consequences" to his comments.

The NBA became involved in controversy when Morey tweeted his support of pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong, which the association later called "regrettable." The tweet sparked backlash in China, causing companies to cut ties with the Houston Rockets.

Agreed. He's an interesting individual who generally goes his own way. And most "reporting" is just cherry-picking hearsay. If I cared, I'd do a little digging to find out what he said in its entirety and in what context, but I ceased to care about the NBA when Michael retired.

Spain Confirms: Generalissimo Francisco Franco Is Still Dead
[Hot Air] If the title of this article doesn’t make any sense to you, you probably never watched Saturday Night Live in the seventies. When Chevy Chase used to be the "anchor" for their Weekend Update segment, he would frequently invoke the breaking news that Spanish dictator Generalissimo Francisco Franco was "still dead." Today, Spain is scheduled to confirm this news when the brutal dictator’s remains are removed from the mausoleum at the Valley of the Fallen in San Lorenzo de El Escorial, Spain. Descendants of Franco will transfer the coffin to a private cemetery. (Associated Press)

Paris police headquarters stabbings – the ‘insider threat’
[Jpost] On October 3, a police employee stabbed five colleagues at the Prefecture of Police on the Île de la Cité in central Gay Paree, killing four coppers as well as seriously injuring a woman.

The attacker, 45-year-old Mickaël Harpon, an IT specialist who had done administrative work at the station since 2003, held top-secret security clearance that gave him access to all computers in the police directorate of intelligence, known as the DRPP.

The perpetrator converted to Islam a decade ago, stopped wearing Western clothes and stopped talking to women. Ties between Harpon and a hard-line Salafist imam were also confirmed. Colleagues had reported Harpon in 2015 for voicing support for the attack on the Charlie Hebdo

Trump Effect: GOP learns to stand on its hind legs against the Left
[American Thinker] After Democrats' breakneck-speed impeachment of President Trump, conducted in secrecy in some dank Capitol basement with only selective leaks intended to shape public opinion, Republicans finally called the gig up and stormed the barricades.

Led by Rep. Matt Gaetz, they startled and surprised the Democrats with a very un-Republican storming of the secret hearings, busting their way in to be allowed in and calling for transparency, not just for themselves, but in the name of the voters.

Republicans knew nobody was going to get arrested if they just charged in because Congress is already a law unto itself. Impeachment is being conducted the sneaky way Democrats like, with no courts to appeal to, and that's emboldened them to make up rules as they go along, ignoring transparency, respect for the voters, and precedent. It's just a Schiff-show now, and with all that power, but just slightly more than half the representation, they've had it good.
Yet what they didn't calculate for is Republicans using the Democrats' own tactics against them this time. Democrats set the rules; now Republicans are using them. Storming the joint, after all, is so Code Pink, so leftist, yet these guys did it. So long as rules or fairness no longer matter anymore, why not blow into the joint without an invitation? What are they going to do ‐ start yelling about manners? As if manners had ever mattered to them in the past, given the monsters they've evolved into.

Gaetz and Co. recognized this, and that's why what he's done is so praiseworthy.

To what can we attribute this newfound gutsiness from the Republicans? Probably President Trump himself, actually. He's the ultimate disruptor. He's rude, he's boorish, he's bombastic, everything that makes the lefty establishment scream. But that's precisely why he was elected. As one well known pundit (name escapes me) has observed: if he were presidential, he wouldn't be president. In 2016, voters elected him to be the junkyard dog to dig out all the corruption of the utterly comfortable monopoly leftist establishment. More specifically, he fights. The fact that Trump is a fighter is why voters broke for him, even against a talented GOP field of competition in 2016. He sees the rigging, he calls it out, and he busts through.

Op-Ed: It's Been A Few Months; Is It Time For A New War In The Middle East?
[Babylon Bee] What's been in the news lately? We had the tumultuous midterm elections, the wild Mueller investigation and that whole shindig, and whatever Trump last said on camera. Can people even remember what our last conflict in the Middle East was? Yemen, I think. But that was months ago, so I think it's time for another war in the Middle East.

I know. People are always saying, "Shouldn't you finish the wars you already have first?" But there's no excitement in that. Everyone is only interested in these things when they first start up. We get to wring our hands about refugees and worry for a while about international affairs -- it makes us all feel real worldly. But soon those conflicts go to page 17 in the newspapers and all of our conflicts in the Middle East sit around like a bunch of half-finished craft projects.

So I say we get a new war. Get everyone interested again. Where should we have the war? That's hard to say. But that's the great thing about the Middle East. There's a reason to have a war with just about everyone there. Right now, people are really starting to sour on our relationship with Saudi Arabia. That one seems a bit too ambitious right now -- though Trump would have to tweet something pretty crazy to bump that one out of the news. I think a better idea would be Iran; everyone is into ’80s retro stuff right now, so a conflict with Iran should be pretty popular.

So who's in? New war in the Middle East? Unless you're in the military, you don't actually have to do anything. Just give us the thumbs up and watch the fun on the news until you get bored of it or there's a new Marvel movie.
