Hunter Biden emails under investigation by Senate Homeland Security Committee after hard-drive report emerges
[FoxNews] The Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee is investigating newly released emails that reveal that Hunter Biden introduced his father, former Vice President Joe Biden, to a top executive at Ukrainian natural gas firm Burisma Holdings in 2015 at Hunter's request.

Committee Chairman Ron Johnson, R-Wis., told Fox News on Wednesday that the committee has been in touch with the person who provided the emails and was in the process of validating the information.

The emails in question were obtained by the New York Post and revealed that Biden’s son introduced the then-vice president to a top executive at Ukrainian natural gas firm Burisma Holdings less than a year before he pressured government officials in Ukraine to fire prosecutor Viktor Shokin, who was investigating the company.

"We regularly speak with individuals who email the committee’s whistleblower account to determine whether we can validate their claims," Johnson told Fox News. "Although we consider those communications to be confidential, because the individual in this instance spoke with the media about his contact with the committee, we can confirm receipt of his email complaint, have been in contact with the whistleblower, and are in the process of validating the information he provided.”

The Post report revealed that Biden, at Hunter’s request, met with Vadym Pozharskyi in April 2015 in Washington, D.C.

The meeting was mentioned in an email of appreciation, according to the Post, that Pozharskyi sent to Hunter Biden on April 17, 2015 — a year after Hunter took on his lucrative position on the board of Burisma.

“Dear Hunter, thank you for inviting me to DC and giving an opportunity to meet your father and spent [sic] some time together. It’s realty [sic] an honor and pleasure,” the email read.

An earlier email from May 2014 also showed Pozharskyi, reportedly a top Burisma executive, asking Hunter for “advice on how you could use your influence” on the company’s behalf, the Post reported.

The meeting took place less than a year before the former vice president purportedly pressured government officials in Ukraine to fire prosecutor Viktor Shokin.

Biden once famously boasted on camera that when he was vice president and spearheading the Obama administration’s Ukraine policy, he successfully pressured Ukraine to fire Shokin, who was the top prosecutor at the time. He had been investigating the founder of Burisma.

Johnson's committee has been investigating Hunter Biden's foreign business dealings since 2019, and last month released an interim report on their monthslong probe into Hunter Biden’s role on the board of Burisma and his alleged “extensive and complex financial transactions.”

Johnson and Senate Finance Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, said their investigation has “faced many obstacles” from Democrats on their committees and that executive agencies “failed to comply with document requests.”

Meanwhile, the Post reported Wednesday the emails were part of a trove of data recovered from a laptop which was dropped off at a repair shop in Delaware in April 2019.

The Post reported that other material turned up on the laptop, including a video, which they described as showing Hunter smoking crack while engaged in a sexual act with an unidentified woman, as well as other sexually explicit images.

The FBI reportedly seized the computer and hard drive in December 2019. The shop owner, though, said he made a copy of the hard drive and later gave it to former Mayor Rudy Giuliani’s lawyer, Robert Costello.

The Post reported that the FBI referred questions about the hard drive and laptop to the Delaware U.S. Attorney’s Office, where a spokesperson told the outlet that the office “can neither confirm nor deny the existence of an investigation.”

Bill Barr's ‘Unmasking' Probe Into Obama Officials Concludes without Charges
[GatewayPundit] The US Attorney tapped by Attorney General Bill Barr to investigate “unmasking” done by Obama’s criminal officials around the 2016 has concluded the probe without bringing any charges, according to the Washington Post.

US Attorney John Bash reportedly found no evidence of wrongdoing and concluded the probe without charges and without a public report.

The probe into unmasking was launched in May of this year after then-acting DNI Richard Grenell declassified the list of Obama officials involved in the unmasking of General Mike Flynn in his conversations with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

Names included former CIA Director John Brennan, Ambassador to the UN Samantha Power and former DNI chief James Clapper.

Joe Biden was also on the list!

US Attorney John Bash was also investigating whether Obama officials leaked information to reporters, but found no wrongdoing.

#10  Explanation from a friend.As you might have heard, the DOJ probe into the extensive unmasking of US citizen communications metadata under Obama has concluded without any report or indictments. Here's what I wrote elsewhere in response to the suggestion that we should stop being angry about the unmasking now:
When then-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid lied on the Senate floor in 2012 about Mitt Romney paying no income taxes, he did so under the immunity members of Congress have for statements made officially in that context. What he did could not be prosecuted nor could Romney sue, because we rightly give members of Congress wide discretion in that context.
Reid was abusing that discretion in order to influence the ongoing presidential election. When he was out of office and was challenged on why he lied under cover of his immunity, he smirked and said, "It worked, didn't it?"
Reid abused his legal immunity for political purpose. That abuse and his casual defense of it was appropriately anger making.
There is extensive discretion that senior executive branch officials have with regard to national security mechanisms. That discretion is necessary.
It is also however subject to significant abuse whose impact has grown in parallel with the capabilities of technical information gathering and analysis. Unless officials who wish to abuse national security mechanisms for political ends are utterly stupid, they are able to create enough official cover to protect themselves from indictment and conviction. Susan Rice's CYA email to herself on the last day of the Obama administration is a good example of how to do that.
One can disagree with discretionary judgements by officials and yet accept them when they are made in good faith. Anger is, however, an appropriate response when the extent, nature, and timing of them strongly points to abuse for political purposes.
Reid's cynical and corrosive action was not widely rejected by members of his own political party. That's one reason Trump got elected.
Abuses of the national security mechanisms, whether "simply" abusive unmasking and unprecedented sharing of the unmasked information across many federal agencies or the deeper abuses involved in lying so as to acquire FISA warrants, seriously corrode the trust of many citizens who see themselves increasingly disenfranchised by power holders with the tacit or open support of those who align politically with the abusers.
When neither legal recourse nor even public condemnation of abuses is on offer, the remaining options for pushing back on such abuse do not bode well for a peaceful shared future.

Hunter Biden introduced Burisma adviser to VP dad before Ukraine pressure, email shows
[FOX] Hunter Biden introduced his father, then-Vice President Joe Biden, to a top executive at a Ukrainian energy firm less than a year before the elder Biden pressured government officials in Ukraine into firing a prosecutor who was investigating the company, according to emails obtained by The Post.

The never-before-revealed meeting is mentioned in a message of appreciation that Vadym Pozharskyi, an adviser to the board of Burisma, allegedly sent Hunter Biden on April 17, 2015, about a year after Hunter joined the Burisma board at a reported salary of up to $50,000 a month.

"Dear Hunter, thank you for inviting me to DC and giving an opportunity to meet your father and spent [sic] some time together. It’s realty [sic] an honor and pleasure," the email reads.

An earlier email from May 2014 also shows Pozharskyi, reportedly Burisma’s No. 3 exec, asking Hunter for "advice on how you could use your influence" on the company’s behalf.

Leaked Hunter Biden Hard Drive Allegedly Contained Several Explicit Images, 12-Minute ‘Raunchy’ Video
Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden allegedly made a “raunchy” video and was seen in numerous “sexually explicit images,” per a new report released Wednesday from the New York Post.

A laptop computer which allegedly belonged to Biden was turned into a Delaware computer shop back in April 2019, according to the report. The computer and hard drive were seized by the FBI in December, per the Post.

Whitmer ‘Kidnapping Plot' May Have Been An FBI Entrapment Of A Bunch Of Crackpots
[Federalist] A recent thwarted plan to take Michigan Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer hostage could have been an FBI entrapment, a defense attorney suggested Tuesday for one of six men charged with conspiracy to kidnap.
If so, given the immediate FBI claim that this was the work of rightwing, white supremacist militia, this was an attempt to create and strengthen prejudice against Republicans and influence the presidential election. And if so, all those at the FBI involved in it should be examined to see if they need to be fired or jailed for it.
Scott Graham, who is representing 26-year-old Kaleb Franks, argued in court there was no real plan to capture Whitmer. Instead, he said the accused were merely acting as "militia wannabees" who engaged in "big talk between crackpots," according to the Detroit Free Press. In other words, Graham said, those charged in a plot to kidnap Whitmer were "people who talk a lot ... but are never going to do anything."

"Have you ever dealt with big talkers?" Graham asked an FBI Special Agent Richard Trask during cross examination. "There’s kind of a military-wanna-be theme that runs between militias."

Graham specifically asked Trask about his testimony that 13 militia members were planning to steal Whitmer from her vacation home and leave her in the middle of Lake Michigan or try the governor for treason in a nearby state. Trask, the paper reported, said he couldn’t offer a specific answer but that there were audio recordings of the members discussing their plans.

Graham argued in court that it was the FBI’s own informant involved with this group that was actively encouraging the others to engage in illegal activity.

You mean like those who were warned by someone in the rank and file that Muslims taking flight training ought to be looked at. I don't recall people being sacked or punished (other than the whistle blower) over that FU. You got to make examples. Just like you punish people who commit crimes, pour encourager les autres! Portland is a living example of doing exactly the opposite. Our senior FBI management is just another.

Not believing information and not acting is one thing, Procopius2k. Creating the incident, then lying about actors known to them in order to alter the political atmosphere is quite another.

They did create an incident by goading those Muslim shooters to go down to Texas to try to massacre the participants at Pamela Geller’s Draw Muhammed cartoon contest — the one where the off duty local policeman killed them both at a distance with his handgun, if I recall correctly (people here were very impressed with his shooting skills, so I am, too). But afterward the FBI did not try to tell us it was Jewish commandos just to give them a bad name.

Ayanna Pressley challenger in Massachusetts says she was attacked at local Trump rally, suffered broken tibia
[FoxWilmington] Rayla Campbell, the Republican congressional hopeful challenging Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., in November says she was attacked by two women at a Trump rally on Columbus Day.

The incident left her with a sprained finger, fractured tibia and a mild concussion, Campbell told Fox News on Tuesday.

Campbell, who is the chair of Black Voices for Trump in Massachusetts, said she was walking through a parking lot after the rally when a woman drove in front of her car. The driver and passenger began to verbally assault her, according to Campbell.

"I got kicked in the head and have a fractured tibia," she posted.

She told Fox News the incident left her in the hospital for several hours and she is now using crutches and a stability brace on her knee. However, she says that won't stop her from campaigning.

John Paul Moran, another Republican in the state running for Congress, posted on Twitter that he was also threatened "with death" by "ANTIFA Joe Biden supporters" for being a gay conservative. He said Campbell "was just beat up and hospitalized" by "ANTIFA."

The Boston Herald reported last month that the state's highest court rejected Campbell's petition to appear on the ballot for not collecting enough signatures. She still received 1,216 write-in votes during the primary.

#1  The headline is a bit misleading. In the article:

“Why are you screaming Black Lives Matter at a Black candidate, telling me I don’t know what it’s like to be Black?” she recalled saying.

The fight escalated when the women got out of the car and started pushing Campbell and then tried to take her microphone, the congressional hopeful said.

  • The California congresswoman went into meltdown as Blitzer slammed her over refusing Trump's $1.8trillion COVID-19 relief bill

  • Blitzer pushed Pelosi as to why fellow Democrats are calling on her to accept the deal presented last week if it is not adequate

  • He asked her to look Americans 'in the eye... and explain why you don't want to accept the president's latest stimulus offer'

  • She hit back that Blitzer and others on her party did not know what they are talking about and are not negotiating the deal

  • Pelosi has become increasingly isolated as other Democrats insist she come to a compromise on the relief bill before election day

Democrats' Emoluments Clause Lawsuit Against President Trump Is Dead
[HOTAIR] The Supreme Court has refused to take up an emoluments case filed by Democrats back in 2017. That means the lower court ruling that Democrats do not have standing to bring the case will stand. This little corner of the resistance is dead.

Supreme Court allows Trump administration to end census count early
[NBCNEWS] The Supreme Court on Tuesday effectively allowed the government to stop the census count immediately, blocking a lower court order that would have required the Trump administration to continue gathering census information in the field until the end of October.The Census Bureau said it wanted to stop the count so that it could start processing the data to meet a Dec. 31 deadline, set in federal law, for reporting the results to the president. But the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ordered the government to keep going with its field work until Oct. 31, concluding that a longer time in the field would increase accuracy.

In a brief unsigned order, the Supreme Court stayed the appeals court order.

Justice Sonia Sotomayor dissented, writing, "The harms caused by rushing this year's census count are irreparable." The states and groups seeking to keep the count going "will suffer their lasting impact for the next ten years," until the next census is conducted.

Democrat Senator Mazie Hirono Asks Amy Coney Barrett if She Has Ever Committed Rape
[THEGATEWAYPUNDIT] The Senate Judiciary Committee began day two of their confirmation hearing for Trump Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett.

As expected, Democrat Senators are using this hearing as an opportunity to abuse Amy Coney Barrett, a devout Catholic and mother of seven who is already a vetted judge.

There’s stupid, and then there’s Democrat Senator Mazie Hirono (HI).
The great state of Hawaii does not seem to demand much of its politicians...
Hirono on Tuesday asked Amy Coney Barrett if she has ever committed rape.

"Since you became a legal adult, have you ever made unwanted requests for sexual favors or committed any verbal or physical harassment or assault of a sexual nature?" Hirono said.

Amy Coney Barrett: Judges Can't 'Walk in Like a Royal Queen' and Impose Their Will on the World
[BREITBART] Judge Amy Coney Barrett addressed the widespread misinformation that judges can brazenly make rulings based on the whims of the day, explaining the process and stressing judges cannot just "walk in like a royal queen" and "impose" their will on the world.Chairman Lindsey Graham
...soft-spoken senator from South Carolina, former best buddy of John Maverick McCain. Since McCain's demise, Graham has become more outspoken, more Republican and more of a supporter of President Trump. The speech he gave in support of Brett Kavanaugh was downright manly and really cheesed off the Dems...
(R-SC) prompted Barrett to explain how the process works, using the District of Columbia v. Heller as an example. Barrett briefly explained there has to be a law, lawsuit, appeal, and the court granting cert before it makes a ruling.

When asked if the process remains the same no matter the issue — including guns, health care, child sacrifice abortion, campaign finance — Barrett emphasized judges cannot just impose an agenda at random.

"Judges can’t just wake up one day and say, ’I have an agenda. I like guns. I hate guns. I like child sacrifice abortion. I hate child sacrifice abortion’ and walk in like a royal queen and impose, you know, their will on the world," she said.

"You have to wait for cases and controversies, which is the language of the Constitution, to wind their way through the process," she continued.

Graham then asked Barrett another hypothetical. What if, he said, a state made a law only allowing individuals to own no more than six bullets.

In that case, Barrett said, parties would have to sue the state arguing that the law is unconstitutional. If it made its way to the Supreme Court and it decided to hear the case, "you hear arguments from litigants on both sides."

"They write briefs. You talk to clerks as a judge. You talk to your colleagues, and you write an opinion. Opinions circulate and you get feedback from your colleagues so it’s an entire process," she explained.

"It’s not something that a judge or justice would wake up and say, ’Oh we’re hearing this case. I know what my vote’s going to be,'" she added.

Senator Asks ACB Which 'Notes' She's Been Referring To; She Holds Up BLANK Piece Of Paper

[TRENDINGPOLITICS] Amy Coney Barrett has displayed an immense scope of knowledge during the first two days of her confirmation hearings, and apparently she hasn't needed notes to recall any of it.

Senator Cornyn asked her which set of notes she's been referring to in order to answer these questions, her response was priceless.

"Most of us have multiple note books, notes and books and things like that in front of us. Can you hold up what you've been referring to when answering our questions?" Cornyn asked.

Barrett responded bey holding up a blank notepad, drawing laughs from the crowd.

"Is there anything on it?" Cornyn responded.

"Um...the letterhead that says United States Senate," Barrett responded with a smile.

"That's impressive", Cornyn said.

#4  The Dems are trying to get Barrett to recuse herself in any case that involves voting. The ACA was a big issue. Abortion was a big issue also with the Dems. And of course, how wronged the Dems were with pushing Barrett through so quickly. They would do the same in a NY minute.

Barrett did a great job of not getting boxed in. She is smart. She should make a great new member of SCOTUS; a Constitutionalist who doesn't make law from the bench.

Rep. Doug Collins introduces resolution to push for Pelosi removal as House speaker
[FOXNEWS] Rep. Doug Collins on Monday introduced a resolution to push for the removal of House Speaker Nancy San Fran Nan Pelosi
Congresswoman-for-Life from the San Francisco Bay Area, born into a family of professional politicians. On-again-off-again Speaker of the House. It's not her fault when they lose, but it's her accomplishment when they win. Noted for her heavily botoxed grimace and occasional senior... uhhh... moments...
, claiming she "does not have the mental fitness" to lead the House of Representatives.

"Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s unwillingness to abide by the Constitution, combined with her recent actions, call into question her own mental fitness, which is why it’s critical that the House of Representatives demand her removal from the line of succession," Collins said in a statement to Fox News.

A draft of Collins’ resolution, obtained by Fox News, argues that Pelosi "is unable to adequately serve as Speaker of the House of Representatives and should therefore be removed from her position."

The resolution states that Pelosi "has spent the majority of the House of Representative’s time pursuing baseless and fruitless investigations" against President Trump and his administration, including launching an impeachment inquiry against him in the fall of 2019.

There are various definitions, depending on the need. The Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) fast allows nothing past the lips from after dinner of the evening to full dark the following day, while antiwar activist Cindy Sheehan felt keenly that smoothies were not actually food, as I recall, and in Israeli jails some of their hunger strikers quietly fill up on hidden chocolate bars.
