-Lurid Crime Tales-
Things may soon get a lot worse for Hunter and Joe Biden
[American Thinker] Hunter Biden is a truly pathetic human being. He's an addict who's rolled in and out of rehab because of his serious drug and alcohol abuse. The recently released emails reveal a man with horrifically low self-esteem. They also indicate that his father pimped Hunter to foreign governments to act as a bagman for bribes. However, it's possible to be both pathetic and evil. In this case, the evil may exist, not just because Hunter sold out his country, but also because there are increasingly credible rumors that Hunter's hard drive holds child pornography.

The first reference to child pornography on Hunter's hard drive came from Chanel Rion of OAN. A day after the New York Post story broke, she tweeted that, having seen some of the contents on Hunter's hard drive, there were disturbing indications that he is obsessed with underage girls:

Skipping to the BLUF:

It's sad that we find it so believable that there may be child pornography on the Hunter hard drive. However, Hunter has led such a sleazy life — meth binges, hookers, impregnating a stripper, taking up with his brother's widow — that it's not a big step to imagine him sliding further into immorality. This is especially true if a government hostile to the U.S.'s interests (say, for example, China) wanted to compromise him so as to have a hold over his father.

We've learned from the Jeffrey Epstein affair that the very rich and powerful don't feel that ordinary morality applies to them. That's why this coming week should be interesting. It may prove that all the rumors are wrong. Alternatively, it could reveal that the man who was our former vice president and who is now the current Democrat presidential candidate has been engaged in dirty dealing, using as a go-between a son who lives in a world of unbelievable depravity.

In simple English: for 25 years, Biden has been pimping out his son.

So the 2020 Democratic ticket now consists of a Pimp and a Whore.

A perfect emblem for our current political class... the worst in US history

#7  Sounds like the Debate Commission (or whatever it is) has removed 'Foreign Policy' questions from the next Presidential Debate. Foreign Policy has been the standard topic set for most of the final Presidential Debates.

I wonder why the (mostly in the tank for Biden) Commission is doing that? Perhaps we'll never know.

#8  Let see, under Biden and Zero we got multiple wars lots of military deaths and billions on planes to Iran...under Trump we've gotten no wars, peace progress in the ME, new trade treaties with Can & Mexico, etc.

Now let me think, why would the Ds think that avoiding such topics might be a good idea?

#14  I'm generally not a believer in the QAnon stuff but if there was a pedophile gang... you would think the son of the Vice President would somehow have been included...

This would explain the pressure to put the low energy Joe at the top of the ticket despite not really winning the Primaries.

So I don't believe in QAnon, and I didn't believe in PizzaGate, but Epstein still had that sick little island and intentional misinformation to muddy real stories is a thing.

#17  Kiddie pr0n's horrific but Isn't it bad enough that "the Big Guy" is obviously acting like a pimp, using his idiot son as bagman while he trades on his high office to Chinese Communists and gangsters and thieves from across the former Soviet Bloc?

Isn't that enough grounds for disqualification by itself? Or that his running mate literally prostituted herself to launch her political career in San Francisco?

Or is this now expected behavior from our politicians, so that like Spinal Tappers we have to hear political scandal amped up to eleven before we pay attention?

Heartwarming: Amy Coney Barrett Just Adopted A Local Troubled Youngster Named Hunter
[Babylon Bee] According to sources, Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett has adopted her 8th child, a troubled local youngster named Hunter. In a touching story of love triumphing over all odds, the Barrett family fought for custody of Hunter and welcomed him into their family for the first time this week.

"This family has love to spare," said Judge Barrett. "We just knew we had another child out there somewhere. We were told by the agency that young Hunter had his fair share of issues, but we knew we would be up to the challenge."

Trump 2020 - A Man versus A Movement
A revolutionary movement. Long video (17:28), so get your coffee warmed up. The speaker is Tom Klingenstein, Chairman of the Claremont Institute, and he's not much of an orator. Be patient with the delivery. The Dems keep saying this is the most important election in history, but Klingenstein explains why it is the most important election since 1860 - Great America versus Bad America.

#2  After Trump wins a number of agencies should be reduced in size or removed entirely.

I'd also like to see a department in the Judicial branch who's sole job is to investigate the other two branches of government. The idea would be to take that sort of internal investigation away from the other two branches entirely. The other two branches can make requests that this and this be looked at, but they've lost the right to conduct actual investigations of each other with that FISA warrant lies and out right games. Also this new branch would take over all election monitoring duties in the hopes of pulling party politics out of that sort of decision.

I'm not sure that there can ever be any institution that will always be above corruption and will always protect us from our own stupidity. It's up to we, the people, to be vigilant and wise. If we can't, we deserve our fate.

Five Ways 2020 Fails to Meet International Criteria for ‘Free and Fair' Elections
[AmericanGreatness] In 1994, a body known as the Inter-Parliamentary Council unanimously adopted a Declaration of Criteria for Free and Fair Elections. While most Americans take for granted that our electoral system meets the standard for "free and fair" elections, few have reflected on the international standards that define the term. Beginning with the 2016 election, the norms have gradually eroded as a new class of bureaucrats and journalists gulp the get-Trump Kool-Aid.

The decline of American election integrity may have begun in August 2016, when the New York Times instructed fellow journalists that Trump was so "dangerous" that:

. . . you have to throw out the textbook American journalism has been using for the better part of the past half-century, if not longer, and approach it in a way you’ve never approached anything in your career. If you view a Trump presidency as something that’s potentially dangerous, then your reporting is going to reflect that. You would move closer than you’ve ever been to being oppositional. That’s uncomfortable and uncharted territory for every mainstream, nonopinion journalist I’ve ever known, and by normal standards, untenable.

#4  Clean up the voter rolls and mandate in-person voting on election day with photo ID — a lot of the problem goes away.

Get rid of MotorVoter laws and require proof of citizenship for registration, and another layer of corruption evaporates.

I just upgraded my Ohio driver license when I renewed it, to be federally compliant for air travel and such. I had to bring in my birth certificate, marriage certificate (for the name change when I took Mr. Wife’s), Social Security card, and two recent bills with my name and address on them to prove residency. And then they took a new photo. They gave me a receipt to keep in my wallet until the thing arrived from the central office — hopefully the delay included checking my documents as well as pulling together the physical security features. It cost a little more, but I’ve been waiting for them to get around to it since it was promised after 9/11.

This raises questions about protections/privileges for the press.

The idea was to enable a free press, ie, one that had diverse views which could serve and inform an ideologically diverse polity.

If it's all a Uniparty propaganda bureau, then I would submit that the press has forfeited its First Amendment protections, and the Republic should act accordingly.

And to those who would say "But charger! Then they might crack down on our guys!" all I can say is:

Have you been asleep for the last few decades?

They've been shutting Right voices down for decades, at least going back to the campus speech wars, and even further.

At some point, if we are ever in a position to do so, we will need to "make 'em follow their own rules" as Kurt Schlichter would say.

Plane study that found a 'virtually non-existent' risk of catching COVID-19 in-flight used 'bad math,' expert claims
[Daily Mail, where America gets its news]
  • A Department of Defense-funded concluded that there is a 'virtually non-existent' risk of coronavirus spreading on airplanes

  • The study called its results 'consistent' with other airliner pathogen spread research conducted by Dr David Freedman

  • But Dr Freedman refused to present the new study's findings, saying they were based on 'bad math'

  • He said that there could be unidentified infections that are traceable back to flights, but weren't accounted for in the new study

  • However, he also said the research is a good sign that the risk of transmission on flights likely is fairly low

That Sneezes travel 8 to 12 ft.

The seats are less than 6ft apart.

The passengers next to, behind me, in front of me and beside me are only 18" to 36" away.

Of course now IF the virus is NOT as deadly ad we were told for 10+ months and I still believe it isn't. Then following usual simple Flu precautions is enough.

Or this is in part an admission that the C-19 virus ,having mutated at least 4 times, is not longer as deadly as it was originally and the Air Line industry is running a fluff piece due to Bankruptcy level losses.

-PC Follies
The Unapologetic Bias of the American Left
[AmericanThinker] Some yearn for the ancient monopolistic days of network news, the adolescent years of public radio and TV, and the still reputable New York Times—when once upon a time the Left at least tried to mask their progressivism in sober and judicious liberal facades.

An avuncular Walter Cronkite, John Chancellor, Jim Lehrer, or Abe Rosenthal at least went through the motions of reporting news that was awkward or even embarrassing to the Left. Their agenda was 1960s-vintage Great Society liberalism, seen as the natural evolution from the New Deal and post-war internationalism. Edward R. Murrow, the ACLU of old, and Free Speech Movement at Berkeley—these were their liberal referents. Those days are gone.

Yet even during the Obama years, when studies showed the president had received the most slanted media honeymoon in news history, overt media bias was, at least, as hotly denied as it intensified. There were still a few ossified, quarter-hearted efforts now and then to mention the IRS scandal, the surveillance of Associated Press reporters, the various scandals embroiling the Veterans Administration, General Service Administration, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms, and the Secret Service. But even that thin pretense is over now, too.

What ended liberal dissimulation about slanted reporting is a new pride, or rather an arrogance, about bias itself. The new liberated defiance is something like, "We are biased. Damn proud of it. And what exactly do you plan on doing about it?"

Jim Rutenberg infamously announced in January 2017 his profession’s proud defiance of now ossified norms in a new age in which reporters would "throw out the textbook American journalism has been using for the better part of the past half-century." Christiane Amanpour felt she was now released from the old chains of professed "objectivity." "Much of the media was tying itself in knots trying to differentiate between balance, between objectivity, neutrality, and crucially, the truth," she said just a few weeks after the 2016 election. "We cannot continue the old paradigm." Michel Foucault could not have said it any better.

Univision’s Jorge Ramos more or less ridiculed classical journalistic training and embraced the liberation from the old bourgeois idea of "neutrality."

Saying that reporters should abandon neutrality on certain issues and choose sides may seem at odds with everything that’s taught in journalism school. But there are times when the only way we journalists can fulfill our primary social responsibility—challenging those in power—is by leaving neutrality aside.

Or as the New York Times’ Jim Roberts in 2016 put the new "Walter Durantyism": "Yes. The media is biased. Biased against hatred, sexism, racism, incompetence, belligerence, inequality, To [sic] name a few."

So said them all. In Orwellian terms, Roberts’ media has now come to adore the omnipresent progressive party line: "You must love Big Brother. It is not enough to obey him: you must love him."

When early on in the Trump Administration, the liberal Harvard Kennedy School’s Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy found that in the first 100 days all news coverage was on average 80 percent anti-Trump—93 percent negative in the case of CNN and NBC—no one seemed embarrassed.

Again, since May 2017, the bias has not merely increased but is now a badge of honor—whether it was the months of "walls or closing in" fake stories of imminent Mueller investigation indictments of the Trump family or the serial "Trump is finished" psychodramas about the Logan Act, the Emoluments Clause, and the 25th Amendment. No one in the media, to this day, after the Mueller implosion, the findings of Inspector General Michael Horowitz, and the recent releases of Russian intercepts about the Clinton gambit to fabricate a "collusion" election narrative, has ever said "We were wrong"—because they really think they were "right" in pushing even untruth, given their hatred of Trump.

We can see the new arrogance manifested in a variety of ways. In the recent debates and town halls, the moderators were as praised by the media as they were a turn off to many in the public who were disgusted by their arrogance in making no attempt to appear fair.
