    not credible enough for

    Rudy Giuliani says he offered the New York Post his "Hunter Biden's Laptop" story because he knew it would run it without looking into it. What he didn't say is that he already knew who wouldn't run it: Fox News.

    But according to two sources familiar with the matter, the lack of authentication of Hunter Biden's alleged laptop, combined with established concerns about Giuliani as a reliable source and his desire for unvetted publication, led the network's news division to pass. Fox News declined to comment on this story.

    The point of the story was to get mainstream news to cover it at all. And it kinda made it there, vicariously, thanks to Twitter hamhandedly blocking it.

    But in print and on air, it didn't even get to Fox News, whose hosts were generally very cold on it.

    Whatever will they come up with next?

    Boink Boink dot net? That was supposed to be a credible story?

    If that wasn't Hunter Biden's laptop, I'll be first in line wanting to know who concocted such an amalgum of racey, criminal and conspiratorial content.

    We'll know soon enough if the emails are genuine . . . Joe's probably popping the Prozac about now.

    Sounds like a Russian plant right here in PL. Who else could possibly believe such a ham-handed load of BS? Try harder next time Comrade.

    Yeah, right . . . another lying, cheating, stealing Biden devotee on Twitter single-handedly contrives some convincing "evidence" to discredit what appears to be a much bigger case. I'll believe that only when the Feds come out with a verdict stating that the emails are not genuine.

    In the meantime, you might get your information from a more credible source . . .

    This is really very convenient for the Democrats. After Biden is elected, they can run him out of office for corruption almost immediately and make Harris President. Biden is more of a pawn than I could ever have ever imagined that he is.

    Too bad AOC is too young to be President. Harris could appoint her VP and the shaft would opened wide for the “evil, corrupt United States of America.” The Democrat Party treats this country, its history, it’s culture, its values and its people with utter contempt.

    Sorry, but I'm not resigned to a Biden victory.

    Perhaps this country should return the favor . . .

    Curious, isn't it, that Joe Biden needs to marshall the support of 50 FORMER Intel Officials to suggest that Hunter's laptop and emails are are of Russian origin? Especially when, being former officials, none of them are privy to the actual investigation into the contents of the laptop, hmm?

    There's nothing like playing the old boy network for that long owed favor . . .

    Let's assume everything on the laptop is real. So what? Hunter isn't running for president, so the vast majority of the content isn't of consequence to Joe's campaign.

    If the comments about “the big guy” getting a cut of the kick backs, Biden is guilty of bribery which could land him in jail. What gets me is that the FBI has had this laptop since last December. That’s nine months’ + time with nothing done.

    In addition Biden’s brother has had some unsavory dealings for years. It’s not just Hunter.

    Again assuming everything is totally real and not taken out of context, they're not gonna get him. Especially when the only potential reference is "the big guy"

    In fact, even the email is unsure if "the big guy" is part of the deal.

    The breakdown ends with:

    "10 held by H for the big guy?"

    And that's it, that's the "smoking gun"

    It's the Family Business . . . at least the Trump family makes its business ventures known. Biden's are all back door deals . . . selling our American future out of the trunk of his car.

    That's always been the divide between Republicans and Democrats right? Democrats screw us over and tell us they're not while Republicans screw us over and instead of hiding it tell us we're gonna like it.

    Better to deal with the devil you know than the devil you don't know . . . That's the very reason I disliked Hillary Clinton so much.

    Trump has not "screwed me over." I guess if you don't want to work, when jobs are available, and you spend your whole life with a chip on your shoulder because you think you are "a victim," you have been screwed over.

    Before the pandemic, things were working out very well for most Americans. For the lazy class, who think that they have a right to live off the efforts of other people, perhaps they have a right to be disappointed. Even if they get all of the holdouts they think they deserve, their lives will not get better. The government can only afford to give out subsistence not luxury.

    Yes, Bill and Hillary are very sophisticated crooks. They knew how to funnel their bribe money though phony foundations that end up paying very little to charity. Most money went into their pockets. After Hillary lost the 2016 election, they mostly shut their “charitable foundation” down. The bribe money was not going to be coming in because she no longer had power.

    The Bidens are a different kind of crook. Their bribes are more in the open because they are not as bright or slick as the Clintons.

    Remember that time Eric has to remove himself from operating a children's cancer charity because they were funneling the money back to themselves?

    Or that time the Donald Trump Foundation was dissolved in 2018 because he had been taking money from it for business and political campaign purposes?

    Does this make the Trump family bright crooks or the latter category?
