[Gateway] These emails and texts came to light in a series of New York Post stories on the contents of a laptop, presumably belonging to Hunter Biden. Someone dropped off the laptop at a computer repair shop to have its hard drive content recovered. That customer never paid and never returned for the device or its contents.
The store owner was disturbed by the laptop’s content. Fearing for his safety, he released the hard drive to the FBI in December 2019. When the FBI failed to follow up on the disturbing contents, the shop owner turned over a copy of the contents to former federal prosecutor Rudy Giuliani. Giuliani, in turn, released the material to the New York Post.In one text, Hunter Biden tells his daughter Naomi she can’t keep living like a billionaire’s daughter because her dad is broke.
Smoking gun is the 2011 WH meeting with the Chinese Communist Party front organization & slush fund, the CEC. From Breitbart:
"... the Obama-Biden [2011 White House] visitor logs do not mention any meeting with Vice President Joe Biden. But the Vice President’s off-the-books meeting was revealed by one of the core founders of the CEC.
"In an obscure document listing the CEC members’ biographies, CEC Secretary General Maggie Cheng alleges that she facilitated the CEC delegation meetings in Washington in 2011 and boasts of the Washington establishment figures that CEC met with. The first name she dropped was that of Vice President Joe Biden."
Premature speculation. The Mac repairman made no mention of child pron during interviews. Nor have the others who have a copy of the hard drive. There is already so much illegal corruption and adult material verified on the hard drive. We don't need to go down that road to hell w/o proof.
The sheer volume of emails and photos plus the intimate family details of the correspondence between Hunter and his daughter, and Hunter and his dad, prove beyond a doubt that these legitimately came from his computer. Which Hunter's lawyer demanded be returned to him.
The attempt to blame this on Russkies is the last gasp of the Biden Crime Family and its associated grifters.
[Breitbart] Newly obtained emails from a Hunter Biden business partner lay out in detail how the Vice President’s son and his colleagues used their access to the Obama-Biden administration to arrange private meetings for potential foreign clients and investors at the highest levels in the White House. These never-before-revealed emails outline how a delegation of Chinese investors and Communist Party officials managed to secure a private, off-the-books meeting with then-Vice President Joe Biden.
In a 2011 email, Hunter Biden’s business associates also discussed developing relations with what one called "China Inc." as part of a "new push on soft diplomacy for the Chinese." These emails are completely unconnected to the Hunter Biden emails being released by the New York Post.
These and more explosive never-before-revealed emails were provided to Schweizer by Bevan Cooney, a one-time Hunter Biden and Devon Archer business associate. Cooney is currently in prison serving a sentence for his involvement in a 2016 bond fraud investment scheme.
In 2019, Cooney reached out to Schweizer after becoming familiar with the revelations in his 2018 book Secret Empires. Cooney explained that he believes he was the "fall guy" for the fraud scheme and that Archer and Hunter Biden had avoided responsibility.
The emails offer a unique window into just how the Biden universe conducted business during the Obama-Biden Administration. These associates sought to trade on Hunter Biden's relationship with, and access to, his father and the Obama-Biden White House in order to generate business.
For instance, on November 5, 2011, one of Archer's business contacts forwarded him an email teasing an opportunity to gain "potentially outstanding new clients" by helping to arrange White House meetings for a group of Chinese executives and government officials. The group was the China Entrepreneur Club (CEC) and the delegation included Chinese billionaires, Chinese Communist Party loyalists, and at least one "respected diplomat" from Beijing. Despite its benign name, CEC has been called "a second foreign ministry" for the People's Republic of China‐a communist government that closely controls most businesses in its country. CEC was established in 2006 by a group of businessmen and Chinese government diplomats.
If the emails are authentic, and if the emails were exchanged over normal channels not involving high grade end-to-end encryption then one must assume that EVERY minimally competent international player has been in possession of these emails since they were sent.
This includes IT giants like Apple/Google/Facebook and government entities bot US and foreign.
Conducting this kind of business via email is stupid on the level of having illegal sex adventures in Epstein's island fortress.
QUESTION I have been meaning to ask for sometime.
Are these all State owned or is some Federal National Forests?
If a major part of these are US Forest controlled then Screw the Tree Huggers and do control burns.
Demonstrate to the Public the animal life and environment saved. eg. Ft. Bragg NC. does control undergrowth burns regularly and I cannot think of any out of control forest fire in the years I was there.
To be fully forthright. Aside from the Wacko-West Coast Tree-Hugger problem. There is also an annual weather pattern that promotes massive wild fires in the West Coast states.
A quick Wiki (List_of_California_wildfires) check by anyone will halt any false claims of climate change and etc. Because West Coast Wild Fires have proven to be pre-Columbus.
You can already see the fake news revving up to "debunk" this as "just a smear". All they need to do is hold it off for a couple of weeks while people vote early. They just need a delay, and that is exactly what FB and Twatter are giving them.
Nora O'Donnell on CBS is claiming that Giuliani got his information from Russians.

The ongoing biased and hateful attempt by Telecoms to destroy and silence conservative speech is not a First Amendment issue (so, no “easy” civil rights pathway to take them on via a private right of action, i.e., lawsuit), because the Telecom companies are not government. 42 USC 1983 cases are brought to address governmental abuses of power.
However, the Telecoms’ license to engage in commerce can and should be regulated by government to promote the public welfare. Until the government reigns them in, monolithic Telecom companies will continue censoring those they dislike—until the Common Carrier Doctrine is imposed against them. Antitrust action also would be appropriate.
The Telecoms forget that they cannot be allowed to violate the Common Carrier Doctrine —“come one, come all . . . each to be given fair access and passage." They also cannot be permitted to continue their criminal Antitrust activities . . .
The imposition of the Common Carrier Doctrine will likely need to be through Congressional Act (although the Courts could certainly equitably find common carrier status easily enough for almost any of these monolithic Telecom companies under current law). And, given the clear coordination between the Telecoms, the DOJs Antitrust Division should take action, as well.
Until the Common Carrier Doctrine is imposed, or an Antitrust action reins them in, these unregulated monolithic Telecom companies will continue their discriminatory abuses of conservatives—hiding behind the false claim of a private right to content-based discrimination.
If they can hold this off for the next 2 weeks, they bury it. And apparently they have minions at the FBI who have had this for nearly a year and have hidden it - and who are now trying to investigate this to see if it is "Russian Disinformation" instead of Biden Crimes.
The who of Washington has rotted. The FBI needs to be disassembled and a majority of the people thrown out if not jailed for this sort of malfeasance.
[AmericanThinker] Some people go to jail because they break the law. Sylvia Gonzalez landed in a Texas slammer because she criticized her local government. Now the 74-year-old retiree is fighting back, trying to bring accountability to a system that too often lets public officials off the hook when they violate people's civil rights.
Gonzalez's ordeal started with a simple desire to help her community by serving on the Castle Hills City Council near San Antonio. She knocked on doors and talked to more than 500 neighbors during her campaign, and what she heard strengthened her resolve to make a difference. "They complained bitterly about the city," Gonzalez says.
After winning her 2019 election and becoming the first Hispanic councilwoman in city history, Gonzalez went to work. Her first act in office was to champion a nonbinding citizens' petition calling for the city manager's removal. Rather than taking notice of the public discontent, however, the mayor and other political insiders attacked the messenger. They had Gonzalez arrested, handcuffed, and jailed as part of a prolonged intimidation campaign.
The supposed crime, which Bexar County officials refused to prosecute because the allegations were so far-fetched, involved a simple mix-up at a public meeting. After a resident submitted the petition with more than 300 signatures, Gonzalez inadvertently collected it with other papers on the dais and put it in her personal binder. The error was quickly discovered and corrected, but the mayor accused her of theft and filed a misdemeanor complaint two days later.
The specific charge? "Tampering with a government record," a statute normally reserved for people who forge driver's licenses, green cards, Social Security numbers, and permits. No previous case looked anything like the one against Gonzalez, who did nothing wrong, yet Castle Hills pressed forward.
"I got arrested and handcuffed," Gonzalez says. "I got frisked." She then sat for hours on a cold metal bench, wearing an orange jail shirt and avoiding the restroom, which had no doors. She was not even allowed to stand up and stretch her legs. For someone who does not have a speeding ticket on her record, the retaliation was traumatic.
City officials, including the mayor and police chief, not only manufactured a criminal charge, but did everything they could to ensure that Gonzalez spent the day in jail. Among other tactics, they circumvented the county's district attorney and secured an arrest warrant instead of a summons. Both procedures would have allowed Gonzalez to appear before a judge, but a summons — the normal process for dealing with nonviolent misdemeanors — would have eliminated the need to be processed and put behind bars.
The sledgehammer tactic sent a clear message: never speak out again. At first the city succeeded. Exhausted, defamed, and unable to keep up with the mounting legal bills, Gonzalez left public office and abandoned her efforts to force reform.
She just wanted the mayor and police chief to leave her alone. But now, with support from the nonprofit Institute for Justice, Gonzalez is fighting to ensure that what happened to her will not happen to anyone else. A First Amendment complaint, which she filed on Sept. 29 in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas, seeks to hold city officials accountable for abusing her civil rights.
Her claim is straightforward: if citizens must follow the law, then government workers should have to follow the Constitution. Retaliating against someone for political speech is a clear violation. Ultimately, people like Gonzalez need assurances that the government will not harass them when they step forward to serve their neighbors.
"I only tried to do my job and represent them," she says. Society should applaud such behavior, not punish it.
[MAIL] Britain's former ambassador to the United States was investigated over an alleged affair with a journalist, it was claimed last night.
Kim Darroch is said to have faced claims of passing White House secrets to former CNN reporter Michelle Kosinski.
The married 66-year-old was later cleared of wrongdoing following a probe by the Department of Justice. No "wrongdoing" if you're on an officially sanctioned mission.
Suspicion among US officials was reportedly raised after a series of articles by Miss Kosinski, 46, detailing highly-sensitive information about the Trump administration.
Lord Darroch was reportedly suspected of tipping off Miss Kosinski about plans to make CIA director Mike Pompeo the Secretary of State, which did later happen.
Miss Kosinski is also said to have learned about Mr Pompeo’s plans for a trip to North Korea to push for the return of three US citizens. No story was reported but the White House became more interested in Miss Kosinski.
She also apparently raised eyebrows when tipped off about US plans for tough sanctions against Russia.
The classified proposals had reportedly been discussed in private with allies in France, Germany and the UK before being announced on April 6.
A source told The Sun that Miss Kosinski ‘knew about these sanctions before they were announced’. She also caused concern after learning about a behind-closed-doors feud between Donald Trump and the US ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley.
"Self funded"....? You mean like Jeffrey Epstein? Hunter Biden, or the Clinton Foundation ?
The fight against global hunger, HIV/AIDS. Yes of course.
Kim [Duncan] is the co-founder of Rush Foundation. The Rush Foundation was founded in September 2010 to breathe new thinking into HIV policy and on-the-ground interventions in sub-Saharan Africa. It is a small self-funded organization that seeks to focus on funding initiatives that are either overlooked or poorly served by previously existing efforts. Duncan’s experience in the world of finance includes leadership roles with organizations like Mizuho International, Credit Suisse, and Goldman Sachs. He has serves or has served on the Board of Directors for Respicopea Limited, Ignite Game Technologies Inc., Spatial View Inc., Curelon LLP, Pharmajet Inc., infirst Healthcare Ltd., Peptcell Limited, and Curemark LLC. He is very excited to become a part of The Grassroot Project Board in hopes of continuing his fight against HIV/AIDS and sharing effective growth strategies for our DC based program.
"No need to erect a new statue.
Let's just adapt that, that, and that, too!"
And thus every Justice
In Brooklyn, made lustrous,
Adorned with a jabot,
Before a lavabo,
Took root where the borough's old bat grew.

Cities of Portland, Ore. & Oakland, Cal. are suing the DOJ & DHS for sending federal law enforcement into their cities to protect federal property. The lawsuit says the federal government did not get “consent.” https://t.co/TvPRUNPiq8
Don't defund the one institution pf federal monies, defund the entire Oregon state higher education system. The logic being if they want to punish all whites for the acts ended over a hundred and fifty years ago in only some states, lets hold the entire state system for this continuation of hate whitey agenda.
[NYPOST] Mayor Comrade Bill de Blasio ...cryptocommie mayor of New York and for some reason a Dem candidate for president in 2020. Corrupt and incompetent, his qualifications for office seem to consist of being married to a black woman, with whom he honeymooned in Cuba. He has a preppy-looking son named Dante, whose Divine Comedy involved getting his back hair up when a police car drove past him slowly. New Yorkers voted for him, so they deserve him... spared no expense to burnish the image of his wife, Chirlane McCray — but like many of his big bucks plans it all came to nothing.Hizzoner’s effort to use millions in tax payer money to make McCray a political star came crashing down this week when the city’s First Lady changed course and declared she would not run for Brooklyn Borough President.
Throughout his time in office de Blasio set McCray up to follow in the family’s politics biz, including giving her a staff that in recent years grew to a size larger than any First Lady’s in recent memory.
The McCray team had a $2 million payroll, and as recently as August included a chief-of-staff, senior adviser, speechwriter and a videographer. At one point civil rights activist and political heavy hitter Rachel Nordlinger was McCray’s top lieutenant.
Hoping to give her a huge feather in her cap, de Blasio also made his wife the face of City Hall’s much-ballyhooed ThriveNYC mental health initiative in November 2015.
But the program has burned through an estimated $1 billion, while being blasted for showing little success in helping the needy.
"It was a five-year exercise in futility and that hinged on not only the First Lady’s popularity but also the Mayor’s," said Councilman Joe Borelli (R-Staten Island). "Things would have been different if Thrive was successful in its mission. But that’s just not the record that she could run on."
The Borough President contest was shaping up to be a difficult one thanks to a crowded field and her husband’s heavily criticized handling of the coronavirus (aka COVID19 or Chinese Plague) ...the twenty first century equivalent of bubonic plague, only instead of killing off a third of the population of Europe it kills 3.4 percent of those who notice they have it. It seems to be fond of the elderly, especially Iranian politicians and holy men...
A few thousand votes in swing-state Minnesota may decide November's presidential election. In this crucial swing state, one Democratic candidate came forward in July, in a largely unnoticed and untranslated video, to allege that the state's DFL machine was buying votes in Minneapolis' Somali-American community.
In recent years, multiple Somali-Americans living in Minneapolis-St. Paul have come forward to describe vote-buying, ballot-harvesting, and intimidation operations of historic scope in the Democratic Party-controlled area. Some have brought evidence to state and federal law enforcement, though little action has been taken. These whistleblowers explicitly name Rep. Ilhan Omar, her campaign director Ali Isse, and other Democratic Party members as being involved.
She spoke about how upset she was by how many voters she encountered who expected her to pay $200 for a vote.
She was angry that local Democrats had taken advantage of so many elderly Somali-American refugees, who, she said, sincerely do not know that vote-buying is a serious federal crime in the United States.
Shaie also specifically described two incidents she had witnessed.
She added that anyone who thinks she is a "snitch" needs to understand that law enforcement and others "already know."
I met this woman and I asked her, "Have you voted?" She responded "yes."
I then asked, "Who did you vote for?" She responded, "Wallahi I don't know."
So I asked, "How did you know you voted?" She responded, "Someone came and forced me and took my ballot."
I responded, "OK, so what did he say or do?" She replied, "I don't know, he was a Somali man, I just gave it to him."
[AlphaNewsMN] Minnesota GOP Chairwoman Jennifer Carnahan has accused Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison of abusing his power and threatened to file "a cease-and-desist order" against his office.
On Tuesday night, Felton Farms in Northfield, Minnesota, held a private MAGA rally with Eric Trump, where congressional candidate Tyler Kistner and Carnahan also made appearances. Carnahan, who accused Ellison of "using his office to play politics" and "threatening" the farm venue, announced that the Republican Party of Minnesota would be filing a cease-and-desist order against Ellison's office. Ellison - Yet another Soros purchase
Where is SPOD anyway? Where have you gone Joe DiMaggio / SPOD? Anyway, think this through. Ellis is ‘purchased’ by Soros. So Soros owns human beings? (Note that I grace Ellis with the identification of human.)
VAX if you wish....
But we quit Vax'ing for Flu and Seasonal issues back in 1976-77. The only Vax's we have taken since were Passport / travel required.
Why? The Wife an I both took the Swine Flu VAX (1976 CDC acknowledged semi-live hot batch) and got sick as a dog. Since then the only seasonal issues or transmitted illness issue we have had were colds.
Both myself and wife had the Hong Kong flu in 1968.When the vaccine was developed 4 months later,the flu had ended and we never got the vaccine.
We are contemplating skipping this Covid vaccine as our super senior flu vaccine may be enough.
