Malcolm Nance is predicting that Bonespurs, as early as tomorrow, will claim there was child porn on Biden's computer. He says it's been a standard Russian tactic of sneaking child porn onto people computers for years.

I saw hints of this on Facebook yesterday. With a Qanon conspiracy theorist claiming that the guy who had the laptop at the FBI was in charge of child porn investigations.

I know, don't try to parse law with the dictionary definition. Webster's has alternative facts.

Do they sneak presidents onto planes with known pedophile sex traffickers as well, or are we forgetting how common child sexual exploitation is in the White House of late?

So what else is going to happen next with this story? There will be email drips, quotemines, things taken out of context.

Among the things that are coming will be the following (in no particular order):
  • email drips that goes after moral character so that everyone just accepts the quote-mines. For example, Hunter's choices in porn exaggerated, an affair, emails about drug deals, emails about "money laundering" (taken out of context)...
  • email drips implicating Joe Biden (more out of context stuff)...
  • a full release of all the emails with not enough time to go through them...
  • some Eastern European guy being interviewed by Ghouliani who seems to confirm part of the story...
  • an American being interviewed, probably an "ex-friend" of Hunter's because that is more convincing than a foreigner to some people.

The drips will be timed up to Election Day for maximum impact.

Emphasis added.

Here you go:

I have heard Joe Biden say that he has never discussed business with Hunter. That is false... At my approximately hour-long meeting with Joe that night, we discussed... the Biden family’s business plans with the Chinese, with which he was plainly familiar."

You know those hostage videos where they have the hostage read a prepared statement saying how evil the USA is, and you can tell they are doing so under duress?

Bobulinski looks like one of those hostages reading that statement. I wonder how long it will be before we find out what kind of dirt the Trump campaign has on him. I'm sure they are banking on sometime after Nov. 3.

Fox News said:
The FBI has asked former Hunter Biden business associate Tony Bobulinski to sit for an interview Friday, Bobulinski's lawyers told the Senate Homeland Security Committee, which released a statement Friday.

The FBI has also asked Bobulinski, who went on the record Thursday to accuse former Vice President Joe Biden of lying about his involvement with his son's business dealings, to turn over copies of his phones.

The FBI declined to comment to Fox News "in keeping with our standard practice of neither confirming nor denying the existence of an investigation."
Ummm.... does the FBI always just start investigations based on something shoddy like this?

Maybe that's why he was sweating like that in the video, he knows the FBI are gonna find out that was really his hard drive. I bet that if he is not in cuffs before then, his next press conference will be from Russia, sometime after Nov. 3.

The FBI probably knows whose hard drive it is. According to an article by Business Insider, the warrant that was presented had enough details visible from the other side of the page to indicate the FBI agent listed works on the child abuse cases.

That the FBI has the hard drive almost certainly can't mean that it is Bubulinski's because that'd mean the FBI knows this is all fake, and there can't be enough yes men in the FBI to cover that up... right?I Or are they using this so he can take a deal? But even that is problematic and too conspiratorial as he'd been picked up by the FBI. There would be a paper trail.

We do know that there is a hard drive that was seized.
We know that FBI agent involved has been noted in news stories regarding child porn cases.
We know the story the NY Post is providing stinks like rancid spent cooking oil.

We also know, most Americans have no idea who Bubulinski is, his relationship with Hunter Biden, or that there is even a story "brewing" at all.. I think the Press is wise to what Trump et al did in 2016 and aren't taking the bait this time.

Well, it's not like I actually thought that was the case. I actually though that is what you were implying with your response:
What that Bobulinski's hard drive?

Now I am puzzled as to exactly what you meant there.

Anyway, I am certain they have something on Bobulinski just by the way he was acting in that video.

It was (at least in theory), but upon further (actual) thought, that'd be one hell of a conspiracy.

No doubt. His statements themselves sound empty and fake.

Or maybe he is one of the people that loaned Trump money and this is the only way to get it back.

So, even assuming this is true then what? we have a choice between a secretly corrupt politician and an openly corrupt businessman who filled his cabinet with other openly corrupt people? Hmm....

If Hunter Biden gets a few million $ from China while Joe Biden saves 200,000 lives that would otherwise be dead, I kinda don't care.

Birthday party. Also, what in the heck is "deep knowledge"?

Wait, she is running for the US Senate?!
Lauren Witzke campaign site said:
Restoration of Family

Lauren will re-divert welfare programs, into an incentive program for marriage and children. Married couples with 3 or more children will receive financial stipends. Those who divorce will lose all benefits. These benefits will far surpass any potential child support received after. Single parents who marry will be grand fathered into the program for a period of 10 years, after which the benefit will only be applied for those who marry and have children together. End no fault divorce nationally.
WTF is this crap?! The Catholic Church?

Think about what she is claiming...

She is claiming she received special information. Right-wing politicians and media keep receiving special information (allegedly) about contents on the laptop and putting it out into the Intertubes. These are the drips I was talking about. Their propaganda spin machine is not failing. It's right on target.

You can also expect the mastermind (Trump) to step up pressure on the FBI to arrest Hunter Biden after some more salacious material or references are released. And you can expect the FBI to say, "but sir that wouldn't be standard"--not "but you are a lying snake." That's because the whole thing is an act by both Trump and the FBI that will go away after the election is over.

Now the other thing here is that Witzke's competition is Coons. So she's able to impugn Coons for being a bad father while going after Biden which gives her tremendous right-wing support and synergy with Trumplicans.

Except the media, unlike in 2016, isn't biting on this bullshit. We have some nobody running for Senate and she gets secret intel from the FBI regarding the contents of the laptop? I'm surprised she didn't say the pics were taken at a pizzeria.

I'm not certain of that. If Joe Biden becomes the President, there could be hell to pay for these outrageous lies.

I don't think anyone is buying what she is implying, because what she is implying (not actually claiming probably for the lawyers) is that the Trump run FBI has been letting an active pedophile, who sexually abused a US Senator's daughter... run around free. She wants the press to come in and ask for verification on the source, so the lie gets out, but the media is telling them to fuck off.

That means nothing without context such as numbers for the NFL. There is a massive online circle jerk for right-wingers, so yeah, they might be talking about it, but only Red Hats could identify who Bobulinski is.

If Tucker was a smart man, this would be the moment he has the epiphany for the invention of a photo-document duplication device. Something that was capable of "scanning" something (with a very powerful light... maybe even through the skin?) and then creating a fairly decent facsimile of it.

Wait. They took a photograph of what they sent (which was allegedly used to help find the missing content), but didn't make a photocopy of the documents themselves.. the documents that allegedly were to blow every American's minds... the only copy of it sent in the mail... but after taking a picture (just in case).

The saddest of all is that there are a large number of people that consider this claim proof.. of... something.

He actually admits in his diatribe that they have photos of the documents they gave to the shipping company to help them identify them.

This stinks like a wet gorilla.

Trump used hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars to strong arm the Ukrainian President into rat phucking Biden... got caught.
DoJ used to investigate the Obama-gate fake scandal... nothing.
Sen. Ron Johnson used the Senate to investigate Hunter Biden... nothing.
Rudolph Giuliani knows a guy that fixes MacBooks... and got a hard drive from him and it has the most damning things you've ever seen... but we can only produce a few embarrassing pics and a few emails.

And now, with the failure of being able to squash Biden via using the White House, US Senate, Department of Justice, and a crazy elderly man that was running all of Ukraine to find a scandal that didn't exist, we get...

Dog ate my Political Scandal.

Seriously... this party is possibly getting re-elected to majority in the Senate and the White House.

Tucker Carlson Blames Dog for Eating His Homework

https://www.foxnews.com/media/tucker-carlson-hunter-biden-documents-vanish-los-angeles

In a stunning act of apparent brazen stupidity, Tucker Carlson sent a package allegedly containing the only extant proof of a hunter biden conspiracy or whatever via mail, and having the package arrive empty at the destination.

It has been alleged that it was stolen in transit. The only copy. That they forgot to take pictures or scans or send via email or any of the other hundreds of things they could have done to prevent this. And not only this, but they alledge that someone could actually know that THIS particular parcel contained something actually worth caring about.

Personally, I think he should have just stuck to claiming the dog ate it.

How a fake persona laid the groundwork for a Hunter Biden conspiracy deluge

A 64-page document that was later disseminated by close associates of President Donald Trump appears to be the work of a fake "intelligence firm."

One month before a purported leak of files from Hunter Biden's laptop, a fake "intelligence" document about him went viral on the right-wing internet, asserting an elaborate conspiracy theory involving former Vice President Joe Biden's son and business in China.

The document, a 64-page composition that was later disseminated by close associates of President Donald Trump, appears to be the work of a fake "intelligence firm" called Typhoon Investigations, according to researchers and public documents.

The author of the document, a self-identified Swiss security analyst named Martin Aspen, is a fabricated identity, according to analysis by disinformation researchers, who also concluded that Aspen's profile picture was created with an artificial intelligence face generator. The intelligence firm that Aspen lists as his previous employer said that no one by that name had ever worked for the company and that no one by that name lives in Switzerland, according to public records and social media searches.

From Sinclair, a right wing oriented company that owns many local TV stations across the US, article above. Note the cute bait and then append sheit approach of writing.

Lead sentence bait: WASHINGTON (SBG) - "A justice department official has confirmed to Sinclair Broadcast Group that the FBI opened up a criminal investigation into Hunter Biden and his associates back in 2019, focused on allegations of money-laundering and that the probe remains active."

Next sentence from FBI official we are taken to a reporters interview of what he calls a central witness in the allegations, not evidence, allegations, who is said to, from which the reporter concludes, "...suggest
that former vice president Joe Biden knew more than he has acknowledged about his son's overseas dealings."

I don't know what you consider an ethical or flimsy accusation but, I know this technique is unethical and the accusations are vaporous.

These are the same folks who had "Crooked Hillary" dead to rights 4 years ago and yet for some reason she's still roaming free. It's almost as if they invent scandals they can't follow through on...

Well there's "might", "suggest", "feel", "claim", and "potential" throughout the article. So I feel this claim might have the potential to suggest something.

I wonder if these are the same documents the Tucker Carlson team mishandled.
