Biden's Communist Connections

It turns out Hunter Biden was angling for "a much more lasting and lucrative arrangement."

The New York Post Thursday released additional details of what was discovered on the mysterious laptop that was abandoned at a Delaware computer repair shop.

These latest revelations detail Hunter Biden’s attempts to negotiate a sweeter deal from a Chinese energy company connected to the communist Chinese military and intelligence agencies.

The initial agreement would have paid Biden at least $30 million. But he was angling for “a much more lasting and lucrative arrangement.”

Former Vice President Biden was given two foreign policy portfolios to manage during the Obama years – Ukraine and China. In both cases, his son, and by extension the entire Biden family, was getting wealthy by trading on the powerful position that Joe Biden held.

Speaking in Iowa last night, President Trump said that Biden ran the vice presidency like it was a for-profit corporation. But here is the most significant point: The American heartland got poorer because their jobs were sent to communist China due to trade deals that Joe Biden and Barack Obama enthusiastically supported.

Meanwhile, the Biden family got richer, as did a lot of the Washington establishment, by doing business with communist China. Donald Trump interrupted that gravy train. He put the heartland and its hard-working families first. And that is one of the main reasons that the Washington establishment hates him so much.

If Biden/Harris win this election, the Washington swamp will revert to “business as usual,” cutting deals with Beijing’s communist bosses and Iran’s mullahs. People like Hunter Biden will happily get rich doing business with corrupt regimes while hard working families struggle to make ends meet.

The Reaction

The left’s reaction to this scandal was predictable. The big three networks refused to cover the story. There was more coverage about the fly that joined the Pence/Harris debate than there has been about the Biden family’s corrupt foreign dealings.

The tech giants did their part too. As I noted yesterday, Facebook was deliberately attempting to quash the story. Twitter went even further. It shutdown the New York Post’s Twitter account, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany’s account and the Trump campaign’s official account.

The New York Post is a legitimate news outlet, but it could not get on Twitter Wednesday to comment on any of its reporting. The president’s press secretary was also blocked all day, and was told that she could not have her account restored until she deleted the links to the Post’s Hunter Biden report.

Facebook and Twitter censored the story for various reasons, including a refusal to publish hacked information. They also claimed that they could not determine the veracity of the story.

Well, there’s a lot on social media every day that one should take with more than a grain of salt. But Twitter and most of the American media willingly circulated the Steele dossier long before its veracity could be proven, and, of course, it ended up being totally debunked.

Every major network, as well as Twitter and Facebook, promoted the New York Times’s reports about the president’s tax returns. The Times has never proven that those are actually the president’s tax returns. Trump says their reporting is false, and the Times refuses to identify its sources.

Once again, it is clear that only conservative stories are subject to such stringent factchecking, which will undoubtedly take until mid-November to resolve.

By the way, here’s the latest example of the left’s totalitarian impulse. Judge Amy Coney Barrett took some heat for referring to “sexual preference” during her confirmation hearings this week. Evidently, the term is offensive to some leftists, even though many liberals use it.

But hours after Barrett’s hearing, Merriam-Webster had updated its definition to comply with the new progressive groupthink. This is what the old Soviet Union used to do!

The left is increasingly dictating what we can see, what we can say and what we can think. We must defend our freedoms. We must prevail this November!

COVID Update

For months we have heard over and over again how Europe and the rest of the world was handling the COVID pandemic so much better than we were. Well, that’s not exactly the truth.

Britain, France, Germany and Spain are on the verge of new lockdowns. Why? Because Europe’s coronavirus cases are now exceeding ours.

Meanwhile, the World Health Organization is warning that lockdowns are not necessarily the best approach. Dr. David Nabarro declared, “Lockdowns just have one consequence that you must never, ever belittle, and that is making poor people an awful lot poorer.”

The American people get it. By a whopping 24-point margin, 57%-to-33%, voters reject locking down the country again.

There is a clear difference between the recoveries in Republican states and the continued recessions in Democrat states. But more lockdowns are Joe Biden’s COVID strategy.

That is the choice facing us in this election: A Trump recovery or a Biden recession.

Encouraging News

In spite of the media’s polling propaganda and the professional pundits predicting a Biden landslide, the 2020 campaign is far from over. In fact, an analysis of polling in the key battleground states shows that President Trump is actually performing better now than he was in 2016.

In addition, his campaign is attracting tremendous support from independent voters, first-time voters and even Democrats!

The president held a big rally in Des Moines, Iowa, last night, and according to Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, nearly half of those who attended (48.5%) were not Republicans. A quarter of the attendees did not vote in 2016, and 29% were registered Democrats.
