Biden corruption

Let the credits roll

Featured image I wrote about Matt Ofalea’s brilliant four-and-a-half minute video below in “The playbook on the laptop.” The video compiles clips — mostly of news anchors and reporters — opining on air with mind-numbing certainty and Hive-like unanimity that the New York Post’s reportage on Hunter Biden’s laptop was “a lie,” “altered or fake,” “pure distractions,” and of course, “RUSSIAN DISINFORMATION.” I have posted the video once again below. As a »

CBS News: This just in

Featured image It is difficult to credit the portentous tone and ludicrous gravity of the CBS New story by Catherine Herridge “confirming” the authenticity of Hunter Biden’s laptop and contents. It comes more than two years after the New York Post’s reportage breaking the story and the deep state operation that suppressed it. It seems a tad late and a mite superfluous. CBS News might have deepened our understanding of the story »

“It only took them 769 days”

Featured image I was curious how the New York Post would cover the “confirmation” yesterday of its two-year old reporting on Hunter Biden’s laptop. Steven Nelson’s story supplies what might be an air quote in the headline: “CBS ‘confirms’ Hunter Biden laptop is real 769 days after Post broke story.” Nelson does a good job, but there is so much more to be said. Nelson apparently reserves the derision that should be »

CBS reports: Inside Hunter’s Biden’s laptop

Featured image I learn via Twitter that CBS News has a big announcement. It has retained digital forensic analyst Mark Lanterman to authenticate the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop. This just in, as they say in the business: CBS News reports that the contents are what they purport to be! Clay Travis comments that this breaking news comes “[t]wo years after anyone with a functional brain realized the Hunter Biden laptop was »

The Dirty 51 revisited

Featured image Miranda Devine’s New York Post column revisits the 51 intelligence officers whose letter bore all the earmarks of a dirty political intelligence operation taking advantage of their former offices. Let us not forget that Politico acted the media arm of the operation. Devine’s column — “It’s been two years since 51 intelligence agents interfered with an election — they still won’t apologize” — confines itself to the Dirty 51. Having »

Self-portrait with laptop

Featured image Michael Ramirez recently had to take a few days off due to illness. His creative juices are flowing again now that he is back on the case. Picking up on the news that prosecutors have sufficient evidence to charge Hunter Biden with crimes that would result in the incapacitation of the average citizen, Michael gives us the imaginary self-portrait produced by Hunter Biden in his current line of “work.” The »

The Biden coverup

Featured image The Hunter Biden case is not the Hunter Biden case. It’s the Joe Biden case. All the rest is the saga of a corrupt and degraded reprobate. Yesterday someone somewhere leaked to the Washington Post that the years-long investigation of Hunter may warrant a prosecution on tax and gun charges. He may even have to pay a fine. It is impossible to be too cynical about the Post story. Reading »

Hunter Heading for the Hoosegow?

Featured image The Washington Post is out this afternoon with news that “federal agents” have sufficient evidence to charge Hunter Biden with “tax crimes” and making false statements related to a gun purchase. There are some telltale oddities to the story. It describes the source or sources as “people familiar with the situation.” People? What kind of people? The story does not specify whether these “familiar people” are with the FBI, IRS, ATF, »

Bobulinski against the machine

Featured image Going back to the New York Post’s suppressed Hunter Biden laptop coverage of October 2020, Miranda Devine has been the essential reporter on the underlying story told by former Biden family business partner Tony Bobulinski. Devine is also the author of the related book Laptop From Hell. She previewed Tucker Carlson’s current interview of Bobulinski in her column “Hunter Biden defrauded me, Jim Biden called me during FBI interview, former »

Give him an inch

Featured image I would be embarrassed to conduct an interview with the president that was as lame as Scott Pelley’s lovefest with President Biden on 60 Minutes last night. The Biden administration accorded Pelley a substantial amount of time to chat with Biden and Pelley returned the favor with a variety of softballs and dropped balls as well as his own apologetics — to no one’s surprise, of course, but still. It »

Laptop from hell revisited

Featured image Brendan O’Neill interviews Miranda Devine on the laptop from hell — as O’Neill notes, Devine wrote the book on it — and related subjects in the terrific Spiked podcast below. Spiked has posted the podcast here with this précis: “Miranda discusses her role in the groundbreaking investigation into Hunter Biden’s laptop, the FBI and Big Tech’s attempt to kill the story, and how the cover-up is now falling to pieces.” »

The Thibault statement

Featured image I wrote about the departure of FBI Assistant Special Agent in Charge of the Washington Field Office Timothy Thibault here yesterday. According to Miranda Devine’s New York Post column linked in that post, Thibault has been on leave since Senator Chuck Grassley raised inquiries concerning Thibault’s suppression of negative information about Hunter before the 2020 election. After I wrote yesterday, Thibault released a statement (below via Twitter) stating that he »

Timothy Thibault exits FBI

Featured image Citing unnamed whistleblowers, Senator Chuck Grassley specifically called out FBI Assistant Special Agent in Charge of the Washington Field Office Timothy Thibault in his letter to Attorney General Garland and FBI Director Wray dated July 18, 2022. Senator Grassley posted the letter online here. Working the FBI public corruption beat, Thibault himself appears not be an entirely straight shooter. Miranda Devine put it this way at the bottom of her »

The O’Keefe Project: Footsteps getting closer

Featured image It has been evident that the Biden Justice Department is out to get James O’Keefe and Project Veritas since O’Keefe et al. were raided last year under federal search warrants procured by the FBI. Although O’Keefe was instructed to remain mum, the authorities promptly leaked news of the raid to the New York Times. All this in the matter of Ashley Biden’s diary. We have followed the story in more »

A word from Chris Clark

Featured image Following up on “An utterly bizarre statement,” reader Dave Begley wrote Hunter Biden attorney Christopher Clark. Dave wrote Clark: Hunter Biden is a criminal, tool for China, and a traitor. His parents won’t mount him. Clark responded to Dave: You are a genius!!!! Christopher J. Clark Latham & Watkins LLP The email from Clark comes with the obligatory firm warning: “This email may contain material that is confidential, privileged and/or »

An utterly bizarre statement

Featured image The Daily Mail has published another exploration of the Biden family business in this story by Josh Boswell. Boswell draws on the laptop from hell and White House visitor logs to show the apparently direct involvement of President Biden in the business. Please check out Boswell’s excellent story. Boswell’s story is profusely illustrated, Daily Mail style. Best of all, it includes the statement below from Latham & Watkins criminal defense »

He said, Xi said

Featured image On Thursday President Biden spoke with China President Xi Jinping by phone. “Biden” tweeted out the photo of himself speaking with Xi from the Oval Office (below). It’s not a good look. It’s a bad look. Today I spoke with President Xi Jinping of the People’s Republic of China as part of our efforts to deepen lines of communication, responsibly manage our differences, and address issues of mutual interest. pic.twitter.com/mwIeg35h8j »
