The mainstream media’s showing us just how fake the news really is.

    Pointing to The Big Guy leveraging his position of influence, news of Hunter Biden’s emails just can’t seem to get a word in edgewise. Not for lack of credible evidence, mind you, but a lack of credible media organizations.

    With few exceptions, seemingly all media outlets are in the tank for the Democrat Party, and one cannot expect to see or hear the truth on this subject unless some time is given to the few outlets which do cover this controversy.

    Ignore this important issue at your peril. The Democrats are running a sleazy, self-dealing Washington insider of 47 years out of desperation . . . all because they aren’t willing to look past the communication habits of our current President in order to benefit from his ability to accomplish what needs doing.

    I suppose the only thing worse than no news is fake news.

    Well, we’re getting no news, but only because they’re afraid of the backlash from running the fake news on this issue, later having to admit to selling us a lemon.

    What’s that tell’ya?

    so the lack of evidence is all the truth you need..

    Chris Wallace battles GOP chairwoman over laptop smear: ‘Do you have any proof Joe Biden took one penny?’

    Chris Wallace and Ronna McDaniel (Fox News/screen grab)

    Republican National Committee Chair Ronna McDaniel on Sunday refused to say if she had any proof of allegations of corruption against Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s son Hunter.

    Fox News host Chris Wallace grilled McDaniel about the Trump campaign’s smear against the Biden family on Fox News Sunday.

    “Do you have any proof — because he’s denied it — do you have any proof that Joe Biden every took one penny from either a foreign country or a foreign company?” Wallace asked.

    “I think that’s incumbent upon the press to start investigating,” McDaniel replied. “I think what’s frightening is we should have a free and fair press that should be looking at a laptop that has not been disputed by the Biden campaign to be authentic. These emails are deeply troubling as it looks like Hunter Biden is negotiating with a Chinese energy company to profit, not just for himself, but for his father.”

    Although McDaniel could not provide any “proof” of her accusations, she said “it warrants an investigation.”

    “That’s not my job,” she insisted. “That’s the press’ job. That’s the FBI — those who have this laptop to look into it.”

    Wallace interrupted: “The FBI has had the hard drive since December. Why haven’t they come up with any evidence?”

    “I don’t know!” McDaniel snapped back. “I’m not in the internal aspects of that investigation. But what’s more disturbing, Chris, is Twitter is censoring these stories. The press is saying this has been debunked without even investigating it. Why are they doing that?”

    Instead of mainstream media, liberal media, etc. I prefer to think of it as Free-Market Media™

    More seriously though, I think the lack of credible evidence is keeping this story out of play. It would be an issue if Hunter was running for president, but he's not.

    The smoking gun as it were seems to be this "big guy" email. A couple issues are Joe isn't explicitly identified here, and the email sender doesn't appear to know if the money is even for "the big guy" with the line saying "10 held by H for the big guy?"

    Well guys, get a load of this . . .

    It’s one thing when an undisclosed or anonymous source supposedly tells some liberal rag that something happened, even though no hard evidence can be found.

    It’s quite another when the documented business partner of one of the accused parties attests on the record to the existence of the alleged relationships and turns over documentation validating same.

    Like I wrote before . . . Joe Biden’s been selling America’s future out of the trunk of his car.

    Now it’s payback time.

    I look forward to the release of receipts/transaction records/etc. proving this.

    When do you think those are coming?

    All by themselves, I find Mr. Bobulinski’s authentication of the email and his corroboration that The Big Guy was Hunter’s nickname for his father to be damning enough. That alone should give voters pause.

    On Wednesday 10/20, the Senate Committees requested the referenced communications and documents, and he indicated he would produce those in the immediate future. I take that to mean that the materials are enroute, if not already received by the committees.

    Given a day or two to pour over the information, the committees may have time enough to subpoena and question both Joe and Hunter Before Election Day.

    No FD, the lack of evidence is the only “truth“ you seek. Unfortunately for you, Joe Biden is not so slick as the Clintons or Barack Obama. There are 9 days until Election Day . . . Just enough time for his misdeeds to be confirmed.

    What a Kool-Aid drinking moron. The most corrupt administration in history is trying to smear someone from the least corrupt administration in history and wondering why nobody will take them seriously. LOL!

    Recent administrations with the MOST criminal indictments:

    Trump (Republican) — 215
    Nixon (Republican) — 76
    Reagan (Republican) — 26

    Recent administrations with the LEAST criminal indictments:

    Obama (Democrat) — 0
    Carter (Democrat) — 1
    Clinton (Democrat) — 2

    Notice a pattern?

    But we're supposed to believe these idiots when they make-up stories of corruption to try and paint everyone else as corrupt as they are? I believe that America is much smarter than that.

    About 3 minutes in, Sacha Baron Cohen starts to talk about people like Mikey. The conspiracy theory adherents, the racists, those void of facts and intellectual arguments. We had McCarthy at one point, now we have the entire GOP doing his work.

    Why quote Chris Wallace? He’s a Democrat and part of the Fox News “fair and balanced” reporting.

    Do you really think that business opportunity would have been available to him were his father not the sitting VP?

    Yes, the Clintons are smooth operators. They funnel their swag through “charitable foundations” which pay very little money to charities and lots of money to the Clintons who manage them. It was interesting to note that the Clinton Foundation went dark after she lost in 2016. Given her “commitment to mankind” one would have thought that she would have devoted her retirement to charitable causes.

    Biden crime family has a different approach. They fill up their swag bags and move from on country to another.

    Figures that you would offer up this moron as a credible source for your side.

    No, but is that a crime? I wish it were sometimes, but the sad fact is that our system is full of nepotism. It's why we get political dynasties (Kennedy's, Bush's, Paul's, Clinton's, etc.)

    It's funny that Trump. of all people, is complaining about nepotism. Hey Jared. Hey Ivanka. Hey Don Jr. Hey Eric. Hypocrisy has never been this rich.

    The Big Guy's sold the influence of his office, and tried to conceal it by delaying compensation until after he's served.

    In addition to the fact that he's sold the influence of his office, I imagine he's quivering in his basement because of the discovery of that evasive maneuver which, because it delays recognition of revenue, potentially constitutes tax evasion.

    That's a lot of claims to make for a one email saying: 10 for the big guy?

    Listen, I'm perfectly willing to hold Biden accountable for his crimes, but I'm gonna need more than this.

    As many unfounded claims as the Democrat Party has levied these past 4 years, I think I'll take my shots.

    This isn't a one way street, and it's payback time for liberal America.

    It's a credible opinion. Cohen describes exactly the Right-wing in this country. Sorry if you can't hear his words. That often happens during cognitive dissonance.
