Biden corruption

White man’s problems: The sequel

Featured image New York Post columnist Miranda Devine and two Post reporters seem to have discovered the benefactor who has kept Hunter Biden rolling in the style to which he has become accustomed. He is a wealthy Hollywood figure named Kevin Morris. Morris has money to burn from sources other than the royalties on White Man’s Problems, his 2014 book of short stories. Here is the heart of the Post story: A »

Night of the Hunter

Featured image The New York Post debuts an excerpt of John Paul Mac Isaac’s memoir American Injustice: My Battle to Expose the Truth. The Post has published the excerpt under the headline “The night I met Hunter Biden: Mac Shop owner John Paul Mac Isaac recounts fateful encounter in exclusive excerpt.” It is the story the Post reported before the 2020 presidential election, but it is the story that could not be »

The Melber foresight

Featured image MSNBC hosts will remain free to reveal themselves as fools and tools on Twitter, but Ari Melber is exercised about the threat posed by Elon Musk’s takeover of the platform. Melber explains: “If you own all of Twitter or Facebook or what have you, you don’t have to explain yourself, you don’t even have to be transparent, you could secretly ban one party’s candidate or all of its candidates, all »

Psaki psidesteps

Featured image Jon Levine and Miranda Devine reported in their April 23 New York Post story that “Joe Biden met with Hunter Biden business partner at the White House.” The business partner was Eric Schwerin: “Hunter Biden’s closest business partner made at least 19 visits to the White House and other official locations between 2009 and 2015, including a sitdown with then-Vice President Joe Biden in the West Wing.” Levine and Devine »

Disinformation, American style

Featured image Peter Van Buren looks back at the question of “disinformation” that was floated by 51 former intelligence officials to suppress the news extracted by the New York Post from Hunter Biden’s laptop before the 2020 election. Van Buren’s Spectator column notes in the subhead “The only disinformation op in 2020 was run against American voters by their own intelligence community” (the Spectator has taken the column out from behind its »

In search of “the big guy”

Featured image We don’t need to be reminded not to get excited about Hillary Clinton or Joe Biden ever being brought to justice or even seriously embarrassed. The coverage of the longstanding grand jury investigation into Hunter Biden is nevertheless reaching a fever pitch. Today’s New York Post cover story reports that a grand jury witness was asked to identify “the big guy” in Hunter Biden’s laptop emails. Please spare me. The »

The case of the curious omissions

Featured image This week the Washington Post published a story on the contents of Hunter Biden’s very real laptop. The FBI have misplaced the laptop, but the Post has possessed the contents since June 2021. Now at least part of the story can be told. When the New York Post first broke the laptop story in October 2020, a few weeks before the presidential election, the Washington Post was not happy about »

Hunter Biden: First the Times, Now the Post

Featured image We’ve noted several times recently that Hunter Biden’s corruption is getting more attention from the mainstream media, which makes you wonder whether “Operation Remove Joe” has commenced in earnest. First there was the New York Times acknowledgement that the Hunter Biden laptop was “authentic,” after suppressing any mention of it for two years. Today the Washington Post weighs in with a very damaging story about Hunter Biden’s “business” deals overseas: »

How Low Can Biden Fall?

Featured image We’ve been watching the fallout of Biden’s gaffe about regime change in the Soviet Union Russia, but it is hard to top today’s headline in the Wall Street Journal for droll understatement: The story includes this similarly droll bit of “reporting”: It wasn’t clear if Mr. Biden’s statement was designed to send a message to Mr. Putin and the international community, or simply a verbal misstep. All of which brings us to »

Miranda Devine computes this

Featured image Miranda Devine is one of the New York Post journalists who covered the story of Hunter Biden’s laptop in October 2020, just before the presidential election. Her excellent October 20 column “Media avoiding The Post’s Hunter Biden stories as much as Joe”, for example, called out then candidate Biden and his collaborators in the press for their suppression and disparagement of the Post’s scoops. She returned to the story in »

Let us compute together

Featured image The New York Post has apparently given up on the angles it might pursue to promote the vindication of its Hunter Biden laptop scoops and to humiliate those who defamed and disparaged its reporting. Today’s Post story — “Republicans demand new probe into Hunter Biden laptop, coverup” — is low-octane stuff. Who cares what Dr. Oz has to say about it? By contrast, Breitbart’s John Nolte contributes a worthy addition »

“I Think We Have to Move On”

Featured image One of the chief scandals of the 2020 election was the manner in which a group of left-wing former intelligence officials, liberal newspapers and television networks, and social media giants conspired to squash information about Joe Biden’s political corruption–information that, later polls suggested, could have cost him the election if voters had been permitted to learn the facts. The true story has now been told in Miranda Devine’s Laptop From »

Biden Hits the Panic Button As White House Civil War Intensifies

Featured image All last week the scuttlebutt in the media and in Washington was that President Biden was leaning toward appointing progressive favorite Lael Brainard to replace the “dangerous” (in Lizzie Warren’s words) Jerome Powell as chair of the Federal Reserve, because Brainard pledged to make the Fed a full partner in pushing the climate and “anti-racist” agenda by pressuring financial institutions not to make loans to any fossil fuel companies. Never »

The case of Hunter Biden

Featured image The alliance of the Democratic Party with the mainstream media and Big Tech serves to suppress politically inconvenient news and promote fake news such as the Shamala space video. What is Hunter Biden good for? The story of Hunter Biden and his laptop can serve as a useful case study. His story certainly makes for his highest and best use (not that there is a lot of competition in that »

Hobnobbing with Hunter

Featured image Britain’s venerable Spectator magazine has created a World edition for the United States. Edited by Dominic Green, Spectator World has greatly enhanced the American media landscape. Oliver Wiseman is The Spectator’s DC Diarist. He provides daily email updates to Spectator subscribers (subscribe here). On Thursday morning he led off with a report on the man whom Tucker Carlson has dubbed America’s greatest artist. With Oliver’s permission, I am posting his »

NSA vs. Tucker?

Featured image On his show tonight, Tucker Carlson made the explosive claim that the National Security Agency has been spying on his electronic communications with the intention of trying to drive his show off the air. This information comes from an NSA whistleblower, and Tucker finds confirmation in the fact that the whistleblower himself had information that could only have come from an illicit spying on Tucker’s emails and texts: [email protected] says »

Joe Biden’s excuse for forcing Ukraine to sack its chief prosecutor is bogus

Featured image There is no dispute that, as vice president and point man on U.S. policy towards Ukraine, Joe Biden caused the Ukrainian government to sack its lead prosecutor, Viktor Shokin. Biden has bragged about doing so. There is also evidence that, before his removal, Shokin was investigating Burisma, the shady company on whose board Hunter Biden served. And there’s no dispute that Hunter Biden had no background relevant to Ukraine or »
