#1 Biden’s lawyers have until Friday to comply.

Or what will happen ?

#2 Chatted about the BCF (Biden Crime Family) story with an acquaintance who's a top scribe at one of the (few remaining) prestigious media outlets. He's a nice guy who generally plays it straight.

So I thought he'd be sympathetic, as he has been in the past, to my gentle nudging him and his colleagues to jump on this story and present a more balanced approach than their Trump-loathing peers.

Instead I got a sh!tstorm of snarling, nasty, unhinged denials.

When I noted that his/their refusal to even mention or report on the Bobulinski statement was causing their supporters to turn away from the media in disgust and would eventually lead to their being viewed as Pravda, he sneered: Actually it's the NY Post and Fox News that are acting like Pravda. I'll take my chances that our credibility holds up better than theirs. But thanks for the feedback.

When even the straight shooters abandon all reason and objectivity, it's clear that the system of an independent, credible press in America are numbered.

I've no idea what to do about it, but it seems undeniable that our republic's on its last legs.

#3 Anyone having knowledge as to the identity, whereabouts, or activities of this person of interest, please notify the FBI Special Agent In Charge of our Pasco, Washington field office. Operators are standing by.

#4 Saw that dude on my milk carton. Is he the one who disappeared in the Great Smoky Mountains last month?

#6 @ #2 - but it seems undeniable that our republic's on its last legs.

I very much agree.

#7 The wisdom of crowds agrees. 9mm is now going for $1.20/rnd...if you can get it!

#8  request that your client provide

And what if they refuse? A request is optional afterall.

Why was this not a demand or order?

#9 WEhat's that noise? Sounds like a hard drive getting a thorough cleaning. Ya think they're using Bleach?

#10 because then they can not comply, the Senate can shrug their shoulders and say, well, we tried!

#11 Actually a much more effective way is to physically shread the entire hard drive into little granduals.

That is once Hunter remembers which repair shop he left it in - he was pretty coked out...

#12 I am now so old I can remember when the term "The Deep State" was routinely referred to as a conspiracy theory.

#13  it's clear that the system of an independent, credible press in America are numbered.

Actually, the system of an independent, credible press is throwing up viable new candidates in all directions these days, from the pioneering WND and Newsmax to the polished output of Epoch Times and the Daily Caller, not that Grampaw Tholump7738‘s acquaintance will be offered a job with one of their organizations. Sadly, the old mainstream media organization he is depending on to provide him a pension as generous as the peak paycheck he’s receiving considerably less than nowadays —in these times of recurring payroll and budget cuts — will no doubt be defunct by the time he needs it. A sad but inevitable reward for replacing loyalty to an ideal with loyalty to a class position.

“People like us don’t think things like that”, donchaknow. It will be interesting to watch them look back on it all, ten or twenty years down the line, and every one of them until now proud of their intelligence and insight.

#14 Not really "viable" if the "new candidate" media organization breaks the biggest political scandal in over half a century and the consequence is that public is allowed to ignore or dismiss it and then reward the central criminal in the scandal with the presidency.

Grampaw Tholump is correct. A tiny dissident press with no influence is no match for Pravda

Aye, ah'n ye be see'n a wee leprechaun.

The sad story of the other day's customer. Couple months ago, had the opportunity to buy a case of 9mm for $150. Nah, he said, more than what he wanted to pay for what at the time didn't think was needed. You'd think he was telling the story of his dog getting run over.

#16 9 mm as low as $0.48 each.

#17 Secret Service should be vigilante. Trump IS going after the head of a crime family and syndicate and their international associates.

#18 He'll just continue with the theme that he never had any business dealings with Hunter. Then he might get elected. Then the investigations will evaporate.

They need to ask him things like if anyone ever held his compensation for him, and if he had anything to do with any Chinese companies in any way, shape or form.

#20 #2 - but it seems undeniable that our republic's on its last legs.

I'm sure it seemed that way in the 60s as well. Once we shake the socialists nonsense out of the system the Republic will do fine.

#21 Its not the President who killed America. Its not the Judiciary who killed America. Its not the Congress who killed America. It was the press, all along. Without an informed population of voters, a democracy based Republic cannot function properly.

Hang the press, especially the publishers and editors who deliberately abdicated their duty to honesty and fidelity.
