Biden corruption

Footsteps gettin’ louder, cont’d

The press release includes highlights from the newly released documents. What’s it all about? New York Post columnist Miranda Devine is the go-to journalist on the »

Footsteps gettin’ louder

Featured image House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer has posted a press release in his continuing investigation of the Biden family business. In the press release Comer announced that, according to subpoenaed bank records he has obtained, in 2019 Hunter Biden received a $10,000 wire from Wang Xin and a $250,000 wire from Jonathan Li and Tan Ling. Both wires originated in Beijing and listed Joe Biden’s Wilmington home as the beneficiary »

Possession obsession

Featured image Axios has posted a barebones report that Hunter Biden has a new lawsuit. NRO has slightly more on it here. In the new lawsuit Biden accuses Rudy Giuliani and attorney Robert Costello of “hacking into, tampering with, manipulating, copying, disseminating, and generally obsessing over data that they were given that was taken or stolen from Plaintiff’s devices or storage platforms, including what Defendants claim to have obtained from Plaintiff’s alleged »

Should Republicans Impeach Biden?

Featured image The House has started an inquiry into the impeachment of President Biden. I think that is a good idea, in order to continue turning up evidence of Joe Biden’s corruption. But should the House actually proceed to vote for impeachment, resulting in a futile trial in the Senate? The Wall Street Journal says No, headlining “Americans Don’t Want Another Impeachment Fight. Voters say partisan battles are distracting lawmakers from fixing »

Now Can We Do Joe Biden?

Featured image As Scott noted earlier, Bob Menendez, Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, has been charged with bribery. Allegedly he was using his influence on behalf of the government of Egypt, along with several individuals or companies. The feds executed a search warrant at his house: The feds raided Menendez’s Englewood Cliffs home in June 2022 and found “the fruits” of his “corrupt bribery agreement” — including the 2019 Mercedes »

Mum’s the word

Featured image Miranda Devine reviews Attorney General Merrick Garland’s performance before the House Judiciary Committee yesterday in the New York Post column “Ignorant, pathetic Merrick Garland wilts on the hot seat before Congress.” Garland added the twist of a Mafia don to his usual protestations of rectitude. He don’t know nuthin’ about nuthin’. And your question is a personal insult. I would have missed the deconstruction of what has become the stupid »

Abbe is shabby suing IRS

Featured image Abbe Lowell is the high-powered Washington attorney masterminding the defense of Hunter Biden. His theory is that the best defense is a good offense. Lowell entered the scene with an intimidating volley of criminal referrals and cease-and-desist letters this past February. He has asked federal and state prosecutors to investigate John Paul Mac Isaac and others he accused of disseminating Biden’s personal data. He also threatened former Fox News host »

Speaking of proof

Featured image What is proof? In common parlance, “proof” is evidence. Evidence may be direct or circumstantial. The shiftless Adam Schiff to the contrary notwithstanding, there is no in between. Evidence consists of testimony or exhibits that tend to make the existence or nonexistence of a relevant fact more likely than not. I took up the law of evidence (focusing on hearsay) here in connection with the House Judiciary Committee impeachment hearing »

Where’s the Proof?

Featured image Speaker Kevin McCarthy has announced the commencement of an impeachment inquiry. In response, the Biden administration wrote its press lackeys, instructing them in how they should cover the proceedings: “Covering impeachment as a process story – Republicans say X, but the White House says Y – is a disservice to the American public who relies on the independent press to hold those in power accountable,” Sams wrote in the letter, »

House Opens Impeachment Investigation

Featured image This morning, Speaker Kevin McCarthy announced that the House is launching an investigation that may lead to the impeachment of President Biden. Here is McCarthy making the announcement; text is below: Welcome back, everyone. You know, in the months that we were gone, in the weeks, House Republicans have uncovered serious and credible allegations into President Biden’s conduct. Taken together, these allegations paint a picture of a culture of corruption. »

Biden Administration Pushes “Indigenous Knowledge”

Featured image The Biden administration has released a “guidance” to federal agencies that calls on them to include “Indigenous Knowledge” in decision making: Today, the White House Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) and the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) jointly released new government-wide guidance and an accompanying implementation memorandum for Federal Agencies on recognizing and including Indigenous Knowledge in Federal research, policy, and decision making. You may wonder, »

Biden’s ‘Absolute Wall’ Appears To Be Crumbling Absolutely

Featured image President Joe Biden insists there was an “absolute wall” between himself and his family’s overseas business adventures. Too bad for him, that wall appears to be crumbling.  As the truth about Biden’s knowledge of and likely financial benefit from these deals emerges, the media is focused on the one charge against Hunter Biden that has nothing to do with the president: He lied on 2018 federal gun form by claiming »

Hunter Biden testifies

Featured image Hunter Biden has been deposed by counsel for John Paul Mac Isaac in the defamation lawsuit brought by Mac Isaac that includes a counterclaim by Biden. The best defense is sometimes a good offense, but I doubt that the adage applies in this case. Biden has apparently denied under oath that he left his infamous laptop with Mac Isaac or that the infamous laptop is in fact his. Miranda Devine »

Things that go Bump in the day

Featured image James Taranto observed in yesterday’s Wall Street Journal apropos of the Dem/media assault on Justice Thomas that “[o]ne reason Americans don’t trust the media is that politically biased reporters routinely adulterate the news with tendentious language and prepackaged opinions. The result is crude propaganda—lousy opinion writing and unreliable information rolled into one and deceptively packaged as straight news.” Take the case of the Washington Post and Post “national columnist” Philip »

Peter Schweizer, call your office [update: Peter calls in]

Featured image At Breitbart News Wendell Husebo draws our attention to the latest White House response to America First Legal’s FOIA request for emails bearing on the Biden family business (links to document productions omitted): The White House asserted executive privilege over 200 records housed at the National Archives (NARA) concerning Hunter Biden’s business interactions with the Office of the Vice President during the Obama administration, according to America First Legal (AFL) »

Et Tu, BLS? (With Comment from Steve)

Featured image I guess we shouldn’t be surprised when a federal agency is politicized. Better we should be surprised to find one that isn’t. Now, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (to be fair, the Department of Labor generally) has been enlisted in the Biden/Newsom re-election campaign. ZeroHedge and Kevin Roche have been on this case for a while. Kevin summarizes: For several months I have following, directly in the Bureau of Labor »

DOJ to Jim Jordan on FBI agent subpoenas: Nein

Featured image In a Tuesday night letter to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH), the Department of Justice denied permission for two subpoenaed FBI special agents to testify before Congress in the GOP investigation of potential Biden family corruption. The letter, obtained by the Washington Examiner, can be viewed below. Jordan issued subpoenas on Aug. 21 to FBI special agents Thomas Sobocinski and Ryeshia Holley of the FBI’s Baltimore Field Office, »
