2020 Election 50 cent Chelsea Handler election Intelwars Joe Biden President Trump

Chelsea Handler scolded 50 Cent for supporting Trump: ‘I had to remind him that he was a black person’

Comedian Chelsea Handler made a controversial comment this week when she ordered 50 Cent to not support President Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election. Handler told 50 Cent that he’s not allowed to vote for Trump because he is a black man. Many deemed the statement to be “racist.”

50 Cent, born Curtis James Jackson III, announced he was supporting Trump earlier this week. 50 Cent’s vote for Trump was more motivated by Joe Biden’s tax increases. On Monday, Jackson shared a screenshot from CNBC’s “Power Lunch” news show. The graphic showed how the highest earners would see their tax rates rise if Joe Biden is elected, surpassing 62%.

“WHAT THE F***! (VOTE ForTRUMP) IM OUTF*** NEW YORK The KNICKS never win anyway. I don’t care Trump doesn’t like black people 62% are you out of ya f***ing mind.”

The next day, Jackson followed up with a tweet that said, “Yeah, i don’t want to be 20cent. 62% is a very, very,bad idea. i don’t like it !” The tweet included a video clip from Fox News discussing 50 Cent’s desire to not pay higher taxes.

(Content Warning: Explicit language):

Then Chelsea Handler, Jackson’s ex-girlfriend, lambasted 50 Cent for supporting Trump. “You used to be my favorite ex-boyfriend,” she told Jackson.

To which 50 Cent responded, “oh my God this is effecting my love life now. @chelseahandler I love ya Gator, don’t let Trump and Joe Biden come between us girl.”

“Hey f***er! I will pay your taxes in exchange for you coming to your senses. Happily! Black lives matter,” Handler wrote to Jackson. “That’s you, f***er! Remember?”

Handler appeared on “The Tonight Show” on Friday, where she discussed her ex-boyfriend who she briefly dated in 2011.

“So he doesn’t want to pay 62 percent in taxes because he doesn’t want to go from ’50 Cent’ to ’20 Cent’ and I had to remind him that he was a Black person, so he can’t vote for Donald Trump and that he shouldn’t be influencing an entire swath of people who may listen to him because he’s worried about his own personal pocketbook,” Handler told late-night TV host Jimmy Fallon.

Handler’s assumption that Jackson has to vote for the Democratic presidential nominee because he is black, is reminiscent of Joe Biden’s abrasive comments in May when he said, “Well, I’ll tell you what: If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.”

Many online commenters deemed Handler’s comment that a black man can’t vote for Trump as “racist.”

Radio host Wayne Dupree said, “This is proof that white liberals are the most racist, rude, and nasty people towards the black community.”

Allie Beth Stuckey, host of the “Relatable with Allie Beth Stuckey” podcast on BlazeTV, said, “Chelsea Handler made a documentary about how to be less racist, which means she made lots of money at the expense of black people. Obviously this makes her the voice of black America.”

“The Rush Limbaugh Show” producer Bo Snerdley tweeted, “This woman is the definition of ignorant and arrogant – at the same time. She has the right to “remind” Black person they are Black?”

“Chelsea Handler doesn’t even realize how racist her statement about 50 Cent was,” political commentator Austen “Fleccas” Fletcher said.

During the interview, Handler told Fallon she is willing to “seal the deal in more ways than one” in order for her ex-boyfriend to not vote for Trump. “I might be willing to go for another spin, if you know what I’m talking about,” she hinted.

Defund npr Hunter biden Hunter biden allegations Hunter biden emails Hunter biden laptop Intelwars Joe Biden national public radio NPR Paul gosar

Rep. Paul Gosar calls for NPR to be defunded over its blackout on Hunter Biden allegations

Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.) is calling for National Public Radio to be defunded by the federal government. The movement to defund NPR comes after the media organization announced that it would not cover the allegations against Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden.

On Thursday, NPR managing editor Terence Samuels declared that covering the news story about emails from Hunter Biden’s laptop that was left at a computer repair store is a “waste” of time, and discredited the allegations a “distraction.”

“We don’t want to waste our time on stories that are not really stories, and we don’t want to waste the listeners’ and readers’ time on stories that are just pure distractions,” Samuels stated. “And quite frankly, that’s where we ended up, this was … a politically driven event and we decided to treat it that way.”

NPR has dismissed the Hunter Biden accusations despite Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe declaring the Hunter Biden’s laptop is “not part of some Russian disinformation campaign.”

NPR also enacted a blackout on the Hunter Biden story despite an alleged business partner of Hunter Biden, Tony Bobulinski, confirming the emails are “genuine” and coming forward with multiple phones that he claims have text messages showing dealings with a Chinese energy corporation and the Democratic presidential nominee’s son. Bobulinksi alleges that Joe Biden is involved in the deal. He also offered to speak with the FBI and senators regarding alleged transactions with the Shanghai-based company.

NPR refuses to cover the story despite the fact that Hunter Biden has not denied dropping off his laptop at the computer repair shop back in 2019.

Rep. Gosar wants to defund National Public Radio, who called the outlet’s blackout “appalling.” He added that he has “already directed my staff to start working” on legislation to defund NPR, which is a federally-funded media organization.

Gosar, a staunch ally of President Donald Trump, believes the accusations against the Biden family. He quote-tweeted a post that read: “Joe Biden uses public office to enrich himself and his family. President Trump uses public office to bring jobs and prosperity to American families!” Adding, “This on repeat every day until the election.”

Former Trump administration Ambassador to Germany and Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell was also enraged by NPR’s blackout on the Hunter Biden story, calling it “activism.”

The NPR website states:

Federal funding is essential to public radio’s service to the American public. Its continuation is critical for both stations and program producers, including NPR.

Public radio stations receive annual grants directly from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) that make up an important part of a diverse revenue mix that includes listener support, corporate sponsorship and grants. Stations, in turn, draw on this mix of public and privately sourced revenue to pay NPR and other public radio producers for their programming.

These station programming fees comprise a significant portion of NPR’s largest source of revenue. The loss of federal funding would undermine the stations’ ability to pay NPR for programming, thereby weakening the institution.

Elimination of federal funding would result in fewer programs, less journalism—especially local journalism—and eventually the loss of public radio stations, particularly in rural and economically distressed communities.

Social media giants Facebook and Twitter censored the Hunter Biden story soon after the New York Post published the report that is potentially damaging to the Biden campaign. Twitter suspended the official account for the New York Post on Oct. 14, and the account is still inactive.

Amy coney barrett Campaign 2020 Intelwars Joe Biden LGBT Mazie Hirono Sexual preference

Mazie Hirono snaps when reporter confronts her double standard on phrase ‘sexual preference’

Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii) and other Democrats pounced on Amy Coney Barrett last week for using the phrase “sexual preference” during her Supreme Court confirmation hearing.

But Hirono seemingly gave Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden a pass for using the phrase when confronted by a reporter on Thursday.

What did Democrats say?

At the Senate hearing, Hirono scolded Barrett for uttering the phrase “sexual preference,” calling the term “offensive and outdated.” Hirono reasoned that “sexual orientation is a key part of a person’s identity,” and therefore not a choice.

Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.), a senior Senate Democrat, added, “Judge Barrett using this phrase is shameful and offensive—and it tells us exactly what we need to know about how she views the LGBTQIA+ community.”

In response, Webster’s Dictionary updated the definition of the word “preference” despite there being zero indication prior to Barrett’s usage of the phrase that “sexual preference” was offensive. Webster’s Dictionary actually claimed that using “sexual preference” is considered to be “widely” offensive.

As National Review reported, Democrats have a long history of using the phrase — just like everyone else. Biden even used it just a few months ago.

From National Review:

Joe Biden used the term “sexual preference” in May 2020, and the late Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg used it in 2017. Senators Richard Blumenthal and Dick Durbin — both Judiciary Committee members — have used the term in Senate floor speeches over the past decade.

The Huffington Post and The Atlantic have printed “sexual preference” instead of “sexual orientation” in the last six years. A gay-rights advocate used the term in a September 25, 2020, interview with the gay-rights magazine The Advocate. No one condemned or criticized any of the media outlets or Democratic politicians who used the term in the past decade.

What is Hirono saying now?

National Review reporter John McCormack confronted Hirono over Biden’s recent usage of “sexual preference,” asking whether she would hold the Democratic presidential nominee to the same standard that she used against Barrett.

McCormack asked, “Should Joe Biden apologize, too, like Amy Coney Barrett did?”

Hirono responded, “Joe Biden is not up for the Supreme Court.”

“He’s up for the presidency. So, he shouldn’t apologize?” McCormack followed up.

“People will decide,” Hirono shot back.

“You don’t want to call on him to apologize?” McCormack asked again.

Hirono then snapped, “Oh, stop it. The world is in flames.”

black voters Campaign 2020 Charlamagne tha god CNN Don Lemon Donald Trump Intelwars Joe Biden Larry mckelvey

Charlamagne Tha God explains why black voters are drawn to Trump — and it’s bad news for Biden

Hip-hop radio host Charlamagne The God, whose real name is Lenard Larry McKelvey, explained this week why black voters are drawn to President Donald Trump.

McKelvey’s revealing explanation came after rapper Ice Cube partnered with the Trump campaign to promote his “Contract with Black America,” his socio-economic plan to help lift black Americans. According to Cube, both Trump and Joe Biden reached out to him, but only the Trump campaign made changes to their platform after meeting with Cube; Biden’s camp said they would consider Cube’s plan only after the election.

Meanwhile, rapper 50 Cent, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, said this week that he will support Trump because of Biden’s economic plan, which would raise taxes on wealthy Americans.

Responding to news that Biden’s economic plan would force tax increases — New York City residents, for example, would pay 62% under Biden’s plan — Jackson said, “WHAT THE F***! (VOTE FOR TRUMP) I’M OUT … I don’t care Trump doesn’t like black people 62% are you out of ya f***ing mind.”

What did he say?

CNN host Don Lemon asked McKelvey during an interview on Tuesday why “prominent black men” are supporting Trump or working with him.

McKelvey explained that Trump is winning the support of black men because he is actually talking with them, instead of simply assuming he has their support, as the Democratic Party is accused of doing.

After all, black voters “just want to be heard,” McKelvey said.

“When it comes to the black people you see showing support for Trump, I just think, you know, it’s because Trump is actually talking to young black male voters. He is directing ads toward them,” McKelvey explained. “They are a group that never get courted. I mean, black people don’t get courted either as a whole. But that old Democratic regime speaks to old black men. I think everyone else in the black community and black families, they are supposed to fall I line. They know black women are going to show up regardless.”

“Like I said, he speaks to older black men, and he thinks the rest of us all speak the same language,” he continued. “So, Trump is targeting young black males from marketing. It works.”

On the other hand, McKelvey said Biden’s plan is “really all lip service, simply because we’re in dream selling season.”

However, McKelvey said that if Biden wins the election and implements his plan for black Americans as he has laid out, then “it will absolutely make legitimate changes.”

In the end, McKelvey said he is voting for Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), Biden’s running mate, this November.

“I am voting for Kamala Harris. I tell you that in the heartbeat. I am not necessarily voting for Joe Biden. I am voting for Senator Kamala Harris,” he explained.

Early voting Intelwars Jennifer Aniston Joe Biden kanye west

Jennifer Aniston says ‘it’s not funny to vote for Kanye’ West

Actress Jennifer Aniston told her social media followers Friday that “it’s not funny” to cast their vote for long-shot presidential candidate Kanye West on Election Day, urging them to “please be responsible.”

What are the details?

Aniston wrote a lengthy Instagram post declaring that she voted for Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and his running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris (Calif.), saying, “I voted for them because right now this country is more divided than ever. Right now, a few men in power are deciding what women can and can’t do with their own bodies.”

She continued, “Our current President has decided that racism is a non-issue. He has repeatedly and publicly ignored science…too many people have died.”

The “Friends” star went on to argue that “this whole thing isn’t about one candidate or one single issue, it’s about the future of this country and of the world. Vote for human rights, for love, and for decency.”

But in closing her post, she took a parting shot at West, who is running a long-shot, largely write-in campaign under the banner of the Birthday Party while insisting that he is a serious candidate.

“PS – It’s not funny to vote for Kanye,” Aniston wrote, adding, “I don’t know how else to say it. Please be responsible.”

Billboard reported:

West is on the ballot in 12 states, including Arkansas, Colorado, Idaho, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Minnesota, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Utah and Vermont. West made it clear that he is not AIP candidate Rocky LaFuente’s vice presidential running mate, as some California sample ballots indicated, and that his name appeared “without my knowledge.”

Alexander hillel treisman Alexander treisman Assassination plot Bernie Sanders Intelwars Joe Biden Mass Murder mass shooting

‘Bernie Bro’ with a van full of guns, explosives and $509K reportedly considered assassinating Joe Biden

A 19-year-old man with a van full of guns and explosives was arrested in North Carolina after he made threats online and contemplated assassinating Joe Biden, according to court documents obtained by The Daily Beast.

Around 11 a.m. on May 28, the Kannapolis Police Department was asked to tow an abandoned van from the parking lot of the Third Bank in Kannapolis, North Carolina. Through the window, officers spotted an AR-15 style rifle, a box for a .380-caliber handgun, a canister “of the explosive material Tannerite,” and a box of 5.56-caliber ammunition, according to a police report.

The van, which reportedly belonged to Alexander Hillel Treisman, was towed away, and was later searched. Inside the vehicle police found about “$509,000 in U.S. currency (believed to be [Treisman’s] inheritance), books (about survival, bomb making, improvised weapons and Islam), drawings of swastikas and planes crashing into buildings,” and a Sig Sauer AR Rifle, a 9 mm Luger, a Kel-Tec Sub-2000, a .22-caliber rifle, and a Russian Mosin Nagant M91/30 bolt-action rifle, according to the search warrant application.

Later that day, Treisman arrived at the bank in a Honda Accord and asked about the towed van, according to court documents. Bank employees reportedly contacted police, and they took Treisman into custody.

Police searched Treisman’s Honda Accord and discovered two more handguns, a .380-caliber, and a 9 mm Luger “found concealed in a clothes hamper,” court papers stated.

Treisman, originally from Seattle, was allegedly carrying multiple driver’s licenses from three states: Washington, California, and Florida.

Treisman was arrested for carrying a concealed weapon, according to officials say. Local police contacted the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

A day after his arrest, the suspect reportedly called his mother, Kimberly Treisman. During the phone call, which was recorded, the mother suggested that he should “jump bail,” according to a report from CNBC.

Local police and investigators from the Joint Terrorism Task Force reportedly asked Treisman about the disturbing materials found in his van. During the interview, Treisman “disclosed he has an interest in terrorist incidents and mass shootings,” according to federal officials.

“Treisman conveyed to the interviewing officers that he had an interest in terrorist incidents and mass shootings, and that he watched YouTube videos and read Wikipedia articles about such incidents,” the search warrant application states.

According to court documents, friends and family stopped speaking to him because of his “remarks and jokes” about mass shootings and the 9/11 terror attacks.

Treisman drove around the country, purchasing firearms in different states, authorities claim.

Law enforcement said they discovered an account on iFunny, a social media platform where users can post and comment on memes, alleged to belong to Treisman. The search-warrant application says Treisman posted a meme about killing Joe Biden.

On April 15, 2020, Treisman allegedly shared an image on iFunny with the caption, “Should I kill joe biden?”

In a conversation with another user on iFunny, Treisman reportedly said he “was going to do a columbine for a while.” The other user condemned him for wanting to “harm the innocent.”

Treisman responded, “My hatred is for the complacent American people who will turn u in for their own satisfaction. But aside from former goals, my eyes on the future. If anything I have to save bernie.”

Investigators concluded the “bernie” mentioned in the alleged threat was a reference to Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who dropped out of the presidential race on April 8, which paved the way for Joe Biden to get the Democratic presidential nomination.

On May 3, financial transactions and cellphone records show Treisman was within four miles of Biden’s home in Delaware.

Court documents said between March and May, Treisman made internet searches regarding “information about Joe Biden’s home address, state gun laws, rifle parts, and night vision goggles.”

Investigators determined Treisman’s activity “was consistent with a surveillance and attack plan connected to a possible threat against Joe Biden or other targeted act of violence,” according to a search warrant.

The teenager allegedly wrote a note on his phone that outlined a plot for a mass shooting at a mall food court either on Christmas or Black Friday. The search warrant application states that he made a checklist that ended in “execute.”

Treisman allegedly said he had not attempted to actually harm or murder anyone, telling authorities that his internet postings were “all online threats were part of a persona.”

Investigators claim that they found a trove of “sexually explicit videos and images of minors” on Treisman’s phone.

“Child pornography was found on eight of these devices (three laptops, three hard drives, an additional cellphone, and a flash drive),” an Oct. 6 detention memo states. “A total of 1,248 videos and 6,721 images of child pornography content were found on Defendant’s devices, in addition to 637 videos and images of child pornography containing sadism and/or masochism content.”

Treisman reportedly had no prior criminal history before his arrest. The federal magistrate judge justified Treisman’s detention without bail on child pornography charges because of the other evidence against him.

“No combination of available release conditions would reasonably assure the safety of the community, and that a preponderance of evidence establishes that no conditions would ensure Defendant’s presence in court,” the judge said.

Treisman was denied bail on Oct. 6 pending trial and is currently being held in Durham County, North Carolina.

A lawyer for Treisman and the Secret Service did not immediately respond to requests for comments.

Civil War David barrett Donald Trump Election 2020 Expensify Intelwars Joe Biden

Expensify CEO sends unsolicited email to 10 million customers telling them to vote Biden or risk ‘civil war’

The CEO of Expensify, a software company that develops a system for businesses to file expenses, sent an unsolicited email to approximately 10 million customers Thursday evening urging them to vote for Democratic candidate Joe Biden in the upcoming U.S. presidential election on Nov. 3 and claiming that the country would head toward civil war if Biden doesn’t win.

“Anything less than a vote for Biden is a vote against democracy,” CEO David Barrett wrote in an email with the subject line, “Protect democracy, vote Biden.”

“A vote for Trump is to endorse voter suppression, it really is very basic,” he added.

Barrett told his customers that any vote for President Donald Trump or a third-party candidate or even the decision not to vote was tantamount to “allowing democracy to be methodically dismantled, in plain sight.”

Addressing the concerns of “those who disagree” with the email, Barrett wrote that the First Amendment gives Expensify a right to weigh in on the election and that his company’s success depends on Trump losing.

“Expensify depends on a functioning society and economy; not many expense reports get filed during a civil war,” Barrett wrote.

“All evidence suggests that another 4 (or as Trump has hinted — 8, or more?) years of Trump leadership will damage our democracy to such an extent, I’m obligated on behalf of shareholders to take any action I can to avoid it,” he continued. “I am confident our democracy (and Expensify) can survive a Biden presidency. I can’t say the same about Trump. It’s truly as simple as that.”

The email specifically accused Trump of taking anti-democratic actions to suppress the vote and dismisses counter arguments about voter fraud as unsupported by evidence.

“I wouldn’t be sending this email if this election were just about ‘normal issues’ — taxes, legislative priorities, health care, etc. But it isn’t. This election is a referendum on what limits, if any, we place on our elected leaders to govern us in a fair and representative way. This election will decide if widespread voter suppression is an acceptable governing tactic,” Barrett wrote.

In an interview with Business Insider, Barrett explained that Expensify employees contributed edits to the letter and before it was sent, a “supermajority” of employees voted to approved the content and hit the send button.

“We’ve always been a very strongly values-driven organization, and we talk a lot about what we stand for, what we believe in, what we’ll put our money and efforts behind,” Barrett told Business Insider.

In the email’s conclusion, Barrett invited those who disagree with him to share their thoughts in an email or to message him on Twitter to discuss.

Daniel M. Rothschild, the executive director of the Mercatus Center at George Mason University, sent Barrett one such reply, criticizing the Expensify CEO for politicizing his company and contributing to a “breakdown in social trust.”

“For a variety of reasons, America is becoming a low-trust society. Conspiracy theories abound, relationships are breaking down on partisan lines, and institutions that are critical to a free and open society are being undermined in many cases by their won actions that destroy trust,” Rothschild wrote in a letter to Barrett. “Your email contributes to this breakdown in social trust.”

Rothschild accused Barrett of violating the trust customers place in Expensify by giving them their personal financial information and contact information, which was then used for political purposes beyond the scope of a business arrangement.

“A healthy society cannot exist if its political tribalism invades every aspect of commercial, civic, and community life. Team Red and Team blue have gone from being who we vote for to, in many cases, lifestyle determinants. That is unhealthy to our civic fabric,” he said.

“And again, you email exacerbated this. Until last night, I saw Expensify as a pioneering company that made my life a lot easier,” Rothschild continued. “Now, I see Expensify as a Team Blue company.”

2020 Election Energy Intelwars Internet reactions Joe Biden Joe biden oil President Trump presidential debate Twitter reactions

Biden campaign tries to walk back Joe’s ‘transition from the oil industry’ debate statement after being ripped online

During the final presidential debate on Thursday, Joe Biden pledged to transition away from fossil fuels. The statement caused alarm for many who are worried about the economic impact of losing the energy industry, and the potential devastation on the labor force.

Following the debate, the campaign and Biden himself “clarified” his comments about the oil industry that drew ire.

“By the way, I have a transition from the oil industry, yes,” Biden said during the presidential debate in Nashville, Tennessee.

President Donald Trump immediately became giddy about Biden’s revelation by saying, “Oh, that’s a big statement.”

The Democratic presidential nominee responded, “I will transition. It is a big statement,” which was echoed by Trump, “That’s a big statement.”

Debate moderator Kristen Welker asked Biden, “Why would you do that?”

He responded, “Because the oil industry pollutes, significantly. It has to be replaced by renewable energy over time, over time, and I’d stop giving to the oil industry, I’d stop giving them federal subsidies.”

Trump pounced on Biden’s statement, “He is going to destroy the oil industry. Will you remember that Texas? Will you remember that Pennsylvania? Oklahoma?”

Biden claimed that President Trump doesn’t give federal subsidies to the solar and wind industries.

Trump fired back, “We actually give it to solar and wind.”

A fact-check by WUSA said Biden’s claim that Trump “won’t give federal subsidies to solar and wind” was false.

“There are currently tax credits available to both the wind and solar industry — like the Production Tax Credit and Investment Tax Credit for Wind,” WUSA stated. “It offers tax credits per kilowatt-hour for ‘utility-scale wind.’ It was actually extended under the Trump administration in December last year.”

The internet reacted to Biden’s statement that he would transition the United States away from the oil industry.

“Biden wants to ‘transition’ away from the oil industry. He just killed paycheck earned by hardworking families in Texas. Joe just wants to transition away from Texas. Remember that on election day,” Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) wrote on Twitter.

“Hey Texas and Pennsylvania, @JoeBiden just admitted he would transition from the oil industry, effectively killing an estimated 11 million jobs,” Rick Perry, Trump’s former energy secretary and a former governor of Texas, said.

Nikki Haley, former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, said, “I thought @realDonaldTrump was strong last night. Stark differences between Biden and Trump: free enterprise vs socialism, energy independence vs getting rid of oil and fracking, health care options vs govt run healthcare. Strong foreign policy vs buying friends.”

Kendra Horn, a Democratic House candidate in the oil-rich state of Oklahoma, disagreed with Biden, “We must stand up for our oil and gas industry. We need an all-of-the-above energy approach that’s consumer friendly, values energy independence, and protects OK jobs. I’ll keep fighting for that in Congress.”

“If Biden gets in, not only will he destroy the Oil & Gas industry (and millions of American jobs and lives), we can all say goodbye to these unbelievably good gas prices,” Eric Trump tweeted. “Don’t forget the nearly $5 per gallon we were paying under O’Biden.”

“What this translates to is hundreds of thousands of jobs gone in the blink of an eye. This is dangerous. It puts the prosperity of countless Americans at risk, and we cannot allow it to happen,” George P. Bush, the son of former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, nephew of former President George W. Bush, and grandson of former President George H. W. Bush, said.

In 2019, traditional energy and energy efficiency sectors employed about 6.8 million Americans, roughly 4.6% of the U.S. workforce, according to a report from the Energy Futures Initiative and National Association of State Energy Officials.

Following the debate, before boarding a plane home, Biden tried to clean up his oil comment.

“We’re not getting rid of fossil fuels,” Biden said. “We’re getting rid of the subsidies for fossil fuels, but we’re not getting rid of fossil fuels for a long time.”

When asked if dismantling the U.S. oil industry would cost millions of American jobs, Biden replied, “Well, they’re not going to lose their jobs. … And, besides, there are a lot more jobs that are going to be created in other alternatives.”

The Biden campaign tried to walk back the vice president’s comment on oil from the debate. Kate Bedingfield, Biden’s deputy campaign manager and communications director, attempted to “clarify” Biden’s remarks.

“Biden’s team seeks to clarify Biden’s remarks on the oil industry, with @KBeds saying that Biden was referring to ending oil subsidies,” according to Washington Post reporter Annie Linskey.

Biden was also grilled by President Trump over his past comments that showed that he was against fracking. Biden said he doesn’t want to ban fracking, but fact-checkers found a history of Biden being opposed to fracking and wanting to phase it out.

Emails allegedly from Hunter Biden’s laptop and reported text messages from one of his business partners, allege that Joe Biden was involved in a “lucrative” venture with a Chinese energy corporation, which named “crude oil and natural gas” as the “major drivers” of the company’s revenue.

2020 Election Banning fracking Biden fracking Debate fact check Fracking Intelwars Joe Biden President Trump presidential debate Trump fracking

Biden dares Trump to share proof of anti-fracking comments — Trump posts video; fact-checkers say Biden has opposed fracking

The final presidential debate Thursday was fraught with heated discussion, including when President Donald Trump vigorously challenged Joe Biden on his stance regarding fracking. Biden reacted by demanding the president share proof that he is against fracking, so Trump did just that.

“We’re going to have the greatest economy in the world, but if you want to kill the economy, get rid of your oil industry you want,” President Trump said. Then he asked Biden, “And what about fracking?”

“I never said I oppose fracking,” Biden responded.

Trump reacted by saying, “You said it on tape.”

Biden responded, “Show the tape, put it on your website.”

“I’ll put it on,” Trump declared.

“Put it on the website,” Biden said. “The fact of the matter is he’s flat lying.”

Moderator Kristen Welker asked Biden, “Would you rule out about banning fracking?”

“I do rule out banning fracking because the answer we need, we need other industries to transition, to get to ultimately a complete zero emissions by 2025,” Biden answered. “What I will do with fracking over time is make sure that we can capture the emissions from the fracking, capture the emissions from gas. We can do that and we can do that by investing money in doing it, but it’s a transition to that.”

By the time Thursday night’s presidential debate had ended, the Trump campaign released a video compilation of Biden and running mate Sen. Kamala Harris (Calif.) making remarks opposing fracking. By Friday morning, the video had over 10 million views and over 325,000 Likes.

The video starts out with a clip from the Democratic primary debate in July, where CNN anchor Dana Bash asks Biden if there would be “any place for fossil fuels, including coal and fracking” in his administration.

“No, we would — we would work it out. We would make sure it’s eliminated and no more subsidies for either one of those, either — any fossil fuel,” Biden stated.

Other video clips show Biden saying, “We’re going to end fossil fuels” and “I’d gradually move away from fracking,”

Harris is seen on video saying, “And, I think it’s critically important on day one that we end any fossil fuel leases on public lands.” The video ends with Harris saying, “There’s no question that I’m in favor of banning fracking.”

The Trump campaign is highlighting Biden’s extremely wobbly response on the fracking issue because it could influence voters in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Texas, and Oklahoma — states that depend on oil and natural gas from fracking.

President Trump played the video on Tuesday during his campaign rally in Erie, Pennsylvania. Vice President Mike Pence is also playing the fracking video on the campaign trail, according to The Hill.

CNN did a fact check on Biden’s history of fracking comments and admitted: “Biden falsely claims he never opposed fracking.”

Biden also said he was against “new fracking” in a Democratic primary debate in March when challenged by his opponent, Sen. Bernie Sanders, on the issue of climate change. His campaign clarified to reporters that same evening that Biden was reiterating his plan to ban oil and gas permits on public land, not a complete ban on new fracking, which a president cannot do.

On “Anderson Cooper 360°,” CNN’s fact-checker Daniel Dale said it was wrong for Biden to say he never opposed fracking.

“In this case, Trump is correct, Biden did make anti-fracking comments in 2019 and 2020, and Trump was not lying,” Dale told Anderson Cooper.

Dale mentioned that the official Biden campaign stance is not for banning fracking, but has proposed banning new gas and oil permits on federal land, but Biden’s comments against fracking complicates the situation.

On the Biden campaign website, it calls for “ending subsidies for fossil fuels” in “his first year and redirecting these resources to the historic investment in clean energy infrastructure.”

The Biden campaign is “committed to achieving a 100% clean energy economy and net-zero emissions by 2050,” meaning a complete ban of fossil fuels.

Despite several Democrats promising to ban fracking, including Sens. Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, and Kamala Harris, the president can not issue an outright ban on fracking across the United States.

Hydraulic fracturing is a drilling technique to release oil and natural gas from deep underground by injecting fluid at high pressure.

“Choose Your Liar” Democracy

This article was originally published by James Bovard at The American Institute for Economic Research. 

The final weeks of a presidential campaign are aome of the best opportunities to view political perfidy in spectacular colors. While the media lectures Americans about their civic duty to vote to save the nation, the candidates continue conniving nonstop with no respect for the facts or decency.

After the election is settled, the media and the political establishment will announce “the system worked” and Americans must again respect and obey their rulers (unless Trump is re-elected, of course).

Politicians have mandated warning labels for almost everything except voting booths. Federal agencies require full disclosure of risks for everything from mortgages to volunteering for medical experiments. People are entitled to far more information when testing baldness cures than when casting votes that could lead to war.

Hopefully, Americans will not be as gullible after the election as many are before casting their ballot. Dishonesty is the distinguishing trait of the political class, going all the way back to ancient Athens and the satirical plays of Aristophanes. In 1799, Thomas Jefferson observed, “Whenever a man casts a longing eye on offices, a rottenness begins in his conduct.”

A successful politician is often merely someone who bamboozled more voters than the other liar running for office. Political campaigns rely on deception because, as economist John Burnheim explained, “Overwhelming pressures to lie, to pretend, to conceal… are always present when the object to be sold is intangible and its properties unverifiable until long after the time when the decision to buy can be reversed.”

Lying has long been part of presidents’ job description: the names of Lyndon Johnson and Richard Nixon practically became synonyms for deceit. Former President George W. Bush is being rehabilitated by the media nowadays. But Bush made “232 false statements about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq and another 28 false statements about Iraq’s links to Al Qaeda,” as the Center for Public Integrity reported. Bush’s determination to dishonestly drag America into another Middle East war led to the deaths of more than 4,000 American troops and hundreds of thousands of Iraqi civilians.

President Barack Obama received sainthood even before his election and he retained his halo even though he falsely promised dozens of times that people could keep their doctor after Obamacare’s decrees took effect. Obama campaigned in 2008 on a peace platform and then bombed seven nations. Obama promised “no more illegal wiretapping” but he unleashed the National Security Administration to target any American “searching the web for suspicious stuff.”

The 2016 presidential race was a landmark: never before had American voters been obliged to choose between two such widely despised candidates. Routine deceit by both candidates helped make “post-truth” the 2016 word of the year according to the Oxford English Dictionary.

The 2020 race is also deluging voters with near-record levels of malarkey. Joe Biden denied referring to American soldiers as “stupid bastards” (despite a video of his spiel), denies that his son Hunter has done anything wrong (despite the pesky laptop emails), and exaggerated the Covid death toll a hundredfold. Trump has ludicrously portrayed his pandemic response as faultless, wildly exaggerates the economic achievements of his administration, and perennially denies the damage inflicted here by his trade wars. The one certainty is that the 2020 election will not be won by an honest man.

If a new president is elected next month, the media will insist that “this time is different” and that Americans can safely trust the White House again. In reality, Election Day merely marks a brief intermission between campaigning lies and governing lies. Yet, if Biden wins, Americans will be encouraged to pretend that election victories expunge the sins – or at least the character defects – of triumphant politicians. Winners supposedly deserve a “honeymoon” where people pretend they are trustworthy enough to enact new laws and launch ruinous new federal programs.

But nothing happens after Election Day to make politicians less venal. Presidents and members of Congress take oaths to uphold and defend the Constitution. But, as former U.S. senator Bob Kerrey explained in 2013, “The problem is, the second your hand comes off the Bible, you become an asshole.” When elected officials scorn the Constitution, politics becomes little more than promising and pilfering.

America is increasingly a “Garbage In, Garbage Out” democracy. Politicians dupe citizens and then invoke deluded votes to sanctify and stretch their power. In the post-9/11 era, politicians treat Americans like medical orderlies treat Alzheimer’s patients, telling them anything that will keep them subdued. It doesn’t matter what untruths the people are fed because they will surely forget them.

Lies subvert democracy by crippling citizens’ ability to rein in government. As Willie Brown, the former mayor of San Francisco and mentor for Vice Presidential candidate Kamala Harris, said, “In politics, a lie unanswered becomes truth within 24 hours.” Any lie accepted by a sufficient number of ignorant voters becomes a political truth.

Disregarding political lies paves the way for official crimes. As former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg declared, “When we tolerate dishonesty, we get criminality.” If elected politicians can lie and cover up their actions, then how can any reasonable person not expect to be oppressed?

Politicians assure that voters’ apparent consent is irrevocable regardless of how many lies permeated election campaigns. But there is no such thing as retroactive self-government. Belatedly exposing political lies does nothing to resurrect lost freedoms.

Deceiving voters is as much a violation of their rights as barring them from the polling booth. Only if we assume that people consent to be lied to can pervasive political lies be reconciled with democracy. And if people consent to deceit, elections become little more than patients choosing who will inject their sedatives.

President Obama, in his January 2017 farewell address, criticized Americans who “blame the leaders we elect without examining our own role in electing them.” By Obama’s standard, the perpetual perfidy of the political class would justify condemning voters almost regardless of how they cast their ballots. Obama also condemned people who did not vote. Obama thereby created a no-win situation – except for politicians.

Obama, in his 2016 speech to the Democratic National Convention, also declared, “We do not look to be ruled.” Regardless of the irony of a heavy-handed ruler tossing out that line, it rings true for tens of millions of Americans who make their own liberty their supreme political value.

In the short run, the political game is rigged so that winners capture far more power than many, if not most, Americans would willingly cede to them and vastly more than the Constitution permits. But citizens can reduce the hazards they face by remembering that winning votes never redeemed a rascal. The winner of next month’s presidential election will be a clear and present danger to Americans’ rights and liberties regardless of his margin of victory.

Campaign 2020 Donald Trump Election 2020 health insurance Intelwars Joe Biden Obamacare presidential debate

Biggest lie of the night? Joe Biden says no one lost their health insurance under Obamacare

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden told a brazen lie about Obamacare Thursday evening during the final presidential debate in Nashville, Tennessee, claiming that no one lost their private health insurance plans under the Affordable Care Act.

President Donald Trump attacked Biden’s health care plan, accusing the Democratic nominee’s plan of being “socialized medicine” that would terminate “180 million” private insurance plans.

In response, Biden said that if the Supreme Court declares Obamacare unconstitutional he will pass new health care legislation “with a public option.” He declared his support for private health insurance, arguing that a public option would increase competition by giving private health insurance plans something to compete against.

Then he told a whopper.

“The reason why I had such a fight with 20 candidates for the nomination was I support private insurance,” Biden said. “Not one single person with private insurance would lose their insurance under my plan, nor did they under Obamacare. They did not lose their insurance unless they chose they wanted to go to something else.”

Biden’s claim is demonstrably false. After the Affordable Care Act took effect in 2013, more than 5 million Americans received cancellation letters from their insurance companies, informing them that the health insurance plans they had did not meet the standards of Obamacare.

President Obama’s promise that “if you like your health care pan, you can keep your health care plan” was rated as PolitiFact’s Lie of the Year in 2013.

“So this fall, as cancellation letters were going out to approximately 4 million Americans, the public realized Obama’s breezy assurances were wrong,” Politifact wrote.

In fact, NBC News reported in 2013 that the Obama administration knew that millions of Americans would lose their health insurance under Obamacare. While the Affordable Care Act had a provision that allowed for some health insurance polices to be “grandfathered” in, meaning consumers could keep their plans even if they didn’t meet the essential benefits mandates required by Obamacare, the provision was written so narrowly that many of the plans didn’t qualify.

At the debate, Biden promised that his plan to expand Obamacare with a public option would also reduce insurance premiums. But the Obama administration made similar claims about Obamacare, and the truth was that Obamacare significantly increased health insurance premiums by as much as 24.4% beyond what they would have been if costs rose naturally, according to one study.

Many individuals who remember having their insurance plans cancelled spoke out on social media.

Biden emails Burisma CORRUPTION Hunter biden Intelwars Joe Biden presidential debate

Joe Biden leaves no room to backtrack, denies Hunter Biden made money from business deals with Chinese associates

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden unequivocally denied that his son Hunter Biden made money from a foreign business deal involving China during Thursday evening’s final presidential debate.

As President Donald Trump went on the offensive bringing up allegations that the former vice president knew about his son Hunter’s foreign business deals despite his multiple claims to the contrary, Biden forcefully claimed he has never received money from any foreign source.

“I have not taken a penny from any foreign source ever in my life,” Biden said.

Responding to a question from moderator NBC News’ Kristen Welker on whether Hunter Biden’s involvement with Chinese and Ukrainian energy companies was “unethical,” Biden deflected and pointed the question back on Trump.

“Nothing was unethical,” Biden answered. “With regard to Ukraine, we had this whole question about whether or not, because he was on the board I later learned of Burisma, a company, that somehow I had done something wrong. Yet every single solitary person when he was going through [Trump’s] impeachment testifying under oath who worked for him said I did my job impeccably. I carried out U.S. policy. Not one single, solitary thing was out of line.

“The guy who got in trouble in Ukraine was this guy trying to bribe the Ukrainian government to say something negative about me, which they would not do and did not do because it never, ever, ever happened,” Biden said, referring to Trump.

Biden accused Trump of being the one benefiting from foreign governments, citing a recent report from The New York Times that Trump had a bank account opened in China.

Trump kept up the attack, however, noting that Hunter Biden was appointed to the board of Ukrainian energy company Burisma while Joe Biden served as vice president despite having little experience in that field.

“He’s the vice president of the United States and his son, his brother and his other brother are getting rich. They’re like a vacuum cleaner,” Trump said.

Questions abound over allegations that Biden’s family leveraged his position as vice president to make financially beneficial business deals with foreign entities. Emails purportedly retrieved from a laptop belonging to Hunter Biden indicate that the Biden family pursued “lasting and lucrative” deals with a Chinese energy company that had ties to the communist Chinese government.

The existence of the laptop was first reported by The New York Post, which cited former Trump campaign adviser Steve Bannon and Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani as the sources for its story.

At the debate, Biden criticized Giuliani, saying “he’s being used as a Russian pawn” and accusing the content of this laptop of being Russian disinformation.

Leaving no room to backtrack, Biden explicitly denied that his son made money from a business deal with Chinese associates.

“My son has not made money in terms of, this thing about, what are you talking about, China,” Biden said.

Earlier Thursday, a former business associate of Hunter Biden, Tony Bobulinski, held a news conference accusing Joe Biden of falsely stating that he had no knowledge of Hunter’s business deals and of being directly involved in those foreign business dealings.

Bobulinski claims that the email reported by the New York Post is “genuine” and that he has “emails, Whats App chats, agreements, documents, and other evidence” to support his claims, evidence that he has turned over to the FBI. He is also working with the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs committee in their investigation of Hunter Biden’s foreign business activities.

If Bobulinski’s side of the story is true, it means Joe Biden lied to the American people at the debate.

VIDEO: Former Hunter Biden associate makes explosive allegations against Biden family

Tony Bobulinski, a former business associate of Hunter Biden, made explosive allegations against the Biden family at a press conference Thursday, claiming that Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden was directly involved in foreign business dealings with a Chinese energy company and that the Biden family inappropriately benefited from that business relationship.

Bobulinski also said he will turn over his electronic devices and records of business dealings between the Biden family and its Chinese associates to the FBI.

The purpose of the press conference was to “set the record straight about the involvement of the Biden family, Vice President Biden, his brother Jim Biden, and his son Hunter Biden in dealings with the Chinese,” Bobulinski said.

Among the allegations he made against the Biden family were that Hunter Biden attempted to use a corporate entity set up in partnership with a Chinese energy company as “a personal piggy bank” and that Joe Biden had direct knowledge of the business dealings and that the Biden family was “paranoid” about keeping the former vice president’s involvement secret.

Characterizing claims from Democratic nominee that he never spoke with his son about his foreign business dealings as “false,” Bobulinski said his statements are corroborated by “emails, Whats App chats, agreements, documents, and other evidence” contained on three phones he personally used between the years 2015-2018.

He also claimed that he had a conversation with another individual “involved in this matter” on Sunday and was told that if he went public this information “it would bury all of us, man, the Bidens included.”

“I have no wish to bury anyone, I have never been political. The few contributions I have made have been to Democrats. But what I am is a patriot and a veteran. To protect my family name, and my business reputation, I need to ensure that the true facts are out there,” Bobulinski said.

The facts he related are as follows:

Bobulinski says that in late 2015 he was approached by James Giliar, a business partner of the Biden family, about “joining him in a deal” involving the “Chinese state-owned enterprise CEFC China Energy” and “what he called one of the most prominent families in the United States,” the Biden family. He said he was also informed by Hunter Biden that the Bidens “wanted to form a new entity with CEFC, which was to invest in infrastructure, real estate, and technology in the U.S. and around the world.”

Following an initial capital investment of $10 million, Bobulinski said he was told the entity would “grow to billions of dollars of investment capital.” After months of discussions, he agreed to become CEO of the entity, called Sinohawk Holdings.

“Between February and May 2017, we exchanged numerous emails, documents, and Whats App messages concerning Sinohawk and its potential business,” Bobulinski said. “On May 2, 2017, the night before Joe Biden was to appear at the Milken conference, I was introduced to Joe Biden by Jim Biden and Hunter Biden.”

During their hour-long meeting, Bobulinski claims he discussed the Bidens’ history and their family business plans with the Chinese, of which Joe Biden “was plainly familiar, at least at a high level.”

In the ensuing days, the group reportedly communicated numerous times about “the allocation of the equity ownership of Sinohawk.” On May 10, 2017, Bobulinski said he received the email first reported by the New York Post discussing Joe Biden’s 10% equity share in the company.

“On numerous occasions, it was made clear to me that Joe Biden’s involvement was not to be mentioned in writing but only face-to-face,” Bobulinski said, adding that he was told “Hunter and Jim Biden were paranoid about keeping Joe Biden’s involvement secret.”

“I also had a disagreement with Hunter about the funds CEFC was contributing to Sinohawk,” Bobulinski continued. He claimed Hunter Biden wanted $5 million to be paid to himself and his family, to which Bobulinski objected. Then he claims Hunter, referencing his father, told him that “CEFC was really investing in the Biden family, that he held the trump card, and that he was the one putting his family legacy on the line.”

“During these negotiations, I repeated to Hunter and others that Sinohawk could not be Hunter’s personal piggy bank.” Bobulinski said. He alleges that Hunter Biden became upset with him when he insisted on “proper corporate governance procedures” be implemented to keep him from withdrawing funds from Sinohawk.

Referring to a report on Hunter Biden’s business dealings with Ukrainian energy firm Burisma released by Sens. Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.) and Chuck Grassley (R-Iow) last month, Bobulinski said he realized that the Bidens had gone behind his back and transferred the $5 million to “entities affiliated with Hunter.”

Bobulinski announced that he will be meeting with members of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs committee Friday to discuss this matter and that he will turn over his electronic devices to the FBI.

Last week, the New York Post published an email that allegedly shows Hunter Biden pursuing “lucrative” business deals with a Chinese energy company that would be “interesting for me and my family.” The email, written by James Gilliar of the international consulting firm J2cR, discussed “remuneration packages” for six individuals only identified by initials and nicknames. Hunter and Joe Biden are alleged to be two of the individuals receiving financial compensation from this business venture with the now-bankrupt Shanghai-based China Energy Fund Committee. The company was formerly led by Ye Jianming, who has been missing since 2018 and has rumored ties to China’s People’s Liberation Army and Chinese military intelligence. In 2018, the New York Times reported on Jianming’s arrest for attempts to bribe foreign officials around the world, including the Bidens.

Democrats and the media have responded to the bombshell revelations from these emails by attacking the New York Post’s reporting and dismissing the emails as Russian disinformation.

The Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee
confirmed Thursday that it had reached out to Bobulinski as part of its investigation into the purported Hunter Biden emails.

Hunter biden Hunter biden emails Hunter biden laptop Intelwars Joe Biden President Trump presidential debate Russian misinformation Russian propaganda

If Trump mentions Hunter Biden’s emails, Joe Biden likely to cry ‘Russian misinformation’ at debate

President Donald Trump is very likely to use the emails and text messages regarding Hunter Biden’s overseas business dealings that have allegedly been exposed in reports from the New York Post to confront Joe Biden in the final debate. That became very evident on Thursday afternoon when there were reports that Trump’s special guest to Thursday’s presidential debate would be Tony Bobulinski, Hunter’s former business partner. The Biden campaign may have tipped off how the Democratic presidential candidate will counter the potentially damaging accusations at Thursday night’s debate.

Kate Bedingfield, deputy campaign manager and director of communications for the Biden campaign, provided some insight on how the former vice president may respond to criticisms from President Trump regarding Hunter Biden’s alleged business dealings in Ukraine and China.

“If we see tonight from Donald Trump these attacks on Vice President Biden’s family, I think we need to be very, very clear that what he’s doing here is amplifying Russian misinformation,” Bedingfield told reporters during a pre-date press call.

Bedingfield added that the campaign expects Trump “to continue to bully,” and Biden is prepared for those attacks.

Top Democrats, such as House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) and Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.), have already claimed, without evidence, that the allegations against Hunter Biden are Russian misinformation.

“Well, we know that this whole smear on Joe Biden comes from the Kremlin. That’s been clear for well over a year now that they’ve been pushing this false narrative about the vice president and his son,” Schiff claimed in an interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer.

Murphy proclaimed, “Joe Biden — and all of us — SHOULD be furious that media outlets are spreading what is very likely Russian propaganda.” Murphy added that Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani “is effectively a Russian asset now.”

The Director of Intelligence John Ratcliffe dismissed the claims that the alleged emails from Hunter Biden’s laptop are Russian propaganda.

“Let me be clear, the intelligence community doesn’t believe that, because there’s no intelligence that supports that, and we have shared no intelligence with Chairman Schiff or any other member of Congress that Hunter Biden’s laptop is part of some Russian disinformation campaign — it’s simply not true,” Ratcliffe said.

Joe Biden dismissed the reported emails from Hunter Biden’s laptop that was allegedly left at a repair shop.

“This is the same garbage Rudy Giuliani, Trump’s henchman. It’s the last-ditch effort in this desperate campaign to smear me and my family,” Biden told WISN-TV. “Even the man who served with him on that committee, the former nominee for the Republican Party, said there’s no basis to this, and you know, and all and the vast majority [sic] of the intelligence people have come out and said there’s no basis at all.”

CORRUPTION Hunter biden Intelwars Joe Biden Nancy Pelosi reporter

Watch: Pelosi snaps at reporter for asking about ‘serious allegations of corruption involving Joe Biden’

U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) showed she would not tolerate a reporter asking about new revelations involving Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden during a press briefing on Thursday, when the California Democrat scolded the journalist for bringing up the topic and refused to provide an answer.

What are the details?

“Madam Speaker, the serious allegations of corruption involving Joe Biden have been raised in recent days,” a reporter began during Pelosi’s news conference, but the journalist was cut off before she could finish her question.

“I’m sorry, I’m not answering your questions, OK,” Pelosi replied, attempting to call on another reporter before waving a hand in the air, and adding, “we’re talking about the coronavirus. I don’t have all day for questions—that’s what we’re taking now.”

The journalist was inquiring about revelations that have emerged stemming from multiple New York Post reports published last week on emails purportedly found an a laptop that was allegedly owned by Hunter, suggesting that Joe Biden may have been involved with his son’s foreign business deals despite his denials of having any knowledge of them.

New text messages purportedly from 2017 were revealed on Thursday, and appear to indicate that Hunter Biden set up a business meeting between himself, his father, and representatives of a Chinese firm.

Also on Thursday, it was revealed that a man named Tony Bobulinski, who claims he is a former business partner of Hunter Biden’s, told the Post in a statement that the emails are legitimate, and that Hunter and Joe Biden were both set to profit from an agreement with a Chinese company called China Energy Co (CEFC).

“I’ve seen Vice President Biden saying he never talked to Hunter about his business,” Bobulinksi wrote. “I’ve seen firsthand that that’s not true, because it wasn’t just Hunter’s business, they said they were putting the Biden family name and its legacy on the line.”

Meanwhile, further investigations have confirmed that the FBI is in possession of the laptop in question that was owned by Hunter Biden, and Fox News reports that the FBI in 2019 reportedly subpoenaed the very same laptop in connection with a money laundering probe.

Anything else?

Thursday night also happens to be the third and final debate between Joe Biden and President Donald Trump, who has reportedly invited Bobulinski as his guest to the event in Nashville, Tennessee.

Trump to bring Hunter Biden’s former business partner to final debate as his special guest

President Donald Trump will reportedly have Hunter Biden’s former business partner, Tony Bobulinski, as his special guest at Thursday night’s presidential debate. Much like he did in the 2016 presidential debates, Trump will attempt to use his special guest to gain a psychological edge against his opponent.

President Trump has allegedly invited Bobulinski, the former business associate of Joe Biden’s son, Hunter. Bobulinski became a potential factor in the 2020 presidential election this week when he came forward to confirm that the New York Post’s report on Hunter Biden’s overseas dealings with a Chinese energy company is “genuine.”

Bobulinski became a possible thorn in the side of Joe Biden after he claimed that the “big guy” named in an email about a business venture with Shanghai-based CEFC China Energy Co was, in fact, the Democratic presidential nominee.

“Hunter Biden called his dad ‘the Big Guy’ or ‘my Chairman,’ and frequently referenced asking him for his sign-off or advice on various potential deals that we were discussing,” said Bobulinski. “I’ve seen Vice President Biden saying he never talked to Hunter about his business. I’ve seen firsthand that that’s not true, because it wasn’t just Hunter’s business, they said they were putting the Biden family name and its legacy on the line.”

Joe Biden has repeatedly said that he has “never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings.”

Bobulinski, who is a former wrestler at Penn State University, said he’s “not a political person.” “What few campaign contributions I have made in my life were to Democrats,” he told the New York Post.

“I don’t have a political axe to grind; I just saw behind the Biden curtain and I grew concerned about what I saw,” Bobulinski said. “The Biden family aggressively leveraged the Biden family name to make millions of dollars from foreign entities even though some were from communist controlled China.”

“I myself served our country for 4 years and left the Navy as LT Bobulinski,” he said. “I held a high level security clearance and was an instructor and then CTO for Naval Nuclear Power Training Command.”

Following his stint in the military, Bobulinski became an institutional investor who invested “extensively around the world and on every continent.”

He is the CEO of Sinohawk Holdings, which he said “was a partnership between the Chinese operating through CEFC/Chairman Ye and the Biden family.”

Bobulinski is reportedly cooperating with an investigation into Hunter Biden’s overseas dealings that is being led by U.S. Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.). Bobulinski allegedly handed over a trove of emails, text messages, and documents showing Hunter Biden’s dealings with the now-bankrupt Chinese energy corporation to the U.S. Senate committees who are investigating Hunter Biden’s overseas business ventures.

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, and Johnson are said to be interviewing Bobulinksi on Friday, according to Fox News.

“As part of the committees’ efforts to validate the authenticity of recently publicly released emails involving the Biden family’s international financial entanglements, we sent letters to five individuals identified in the emails. Those letters were sent yesterday, and the deadline is October 23, 2020,” Johnson and Grassley said in a statement. “So far, the committees have received a response only from Mr. Tony Bobulinski, who appears to be willing to fully cooperate with our investigation.”

Trump weaponized special guests at the 2016 presidential debate to try to rattle Hillary Clinton. His special guests in 2016 were women who accused Bill Clinton of sexual assault: Kathleen Willey, Juanita Broaddrick, and Paula Jones. Trump held a pre-debate press conference with the three women as well as Kathy Shelton, whose rapist was defended by Hillary Clinton in 1975 when she was a lawyer. The women were in the audience during the presidential debate.

Also in 2016, Trump invited Malik Obama, Barack Obama’s half-brother, as his guest to the third presidential debate.

At the first presidential debate this year, Trump’s guests were Alice Johnson, a criminal reform advocate who was serving a life sentence in prison before Trump commuted her sentence in 2018; and Ann Dorn, the widow of former St. Louis police captain David Dorn, who was fatally shot in June while protecting his friend’s pawn shop during riots.

The final presidential debate will take place at Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee, will run from 9 p.m. until 10:30 p.m. ET on Thursday.

China CORRUPTION Election 2020 Hunter biden emails Hunter biden text messages Intelwars Joe Biden

New Hunter Biden texts appear to show Joe Biden directly involved in setting up Chinese business deal

As the Hunter Biden laptop story continues to develop, newly revealed text messages purportedly from 2017 appear to show Biden arranging a business meeting with representatives of a Chinese company and his father, Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.

The messages, if accurate, clearly implicate Joe Biden in his family’s business dealings with China, contrary to Biden’s prior claims. They also corroborate claims made by Tony Bobulinski, a man claiming to be a Biden business associate who says that an email published by the New York Post about a “lucrative” deal with a Chinese energy company is “genuine” and that Joe Biden profited from this deal.

The text messages, obtained and shared on Twitter by The Federalist co-founder Sean Davis, allegedly show Hunter Biden setting up a meeting to discuss a business deal between the now-bankrupt Shanghai-based China Energy Fund Committee and his father Joe Biden and his uncle James Biden. According to Davis, the text messages are from May 2, 2017 and the meeting took place at the Beverly Hilton hotel in Beverly Hills, California.

“Mrng plse let me knw [sic] if we will do early dinner w your Uncle & dad and where, also for document translation do you want it in simple Chinese or traditional?” one message reads.

“Not sure on dinner yet and whatever is the most common for a Chinese legal DOC,” Hunter Biden replies.

“Chinese legal docs can be both, i’ll [sic] make it traditional,” the reply states.

“Dad not in now until 11 – lets me I [sic] and Jim meet at 10 at Beverly Hilton where he’s staying,” Biden said.

In May 2017, Joe Biden was a featured speaker at the Milken Institute Global Conference in Beverly Hills, California, which was hosted at the Beverly Hilton hotel, placing the former vice president at the same time and place as alleged by these text messages.

“The next morning, on May 3, 2017, Hunter’s business partner-turned-whistleblower Tony Bobulinski texted James Biden–Hunter’s uncle/Joe Biden’s brother–and asked him to ‘please thank Joe for his time’ for the meeting they all had on May 2 to discuss the China business deal,” Davis reports.

“Great to meet u [sic] and spend some time together, please thank Joe for his time, was great to talk thx Tony b,” a message states.

Tony Bobulinski, the CEO of Sinohawk Holdings, recently released a statement claiming that his company was a “partnership between the Chinese operating through CEFC/Chairman Ye [Jianming] and the Biden family.” He spoke out to authenticate an email reported by the New York Post that allegedly came from Hunter Biden’s laptop and discussed “remuneration packages” for six people involved in a business venture with CEFC China Energy Co.

That email, sent ten days after the alleged meeting at the Beverly Hilton, discussed a percent equity stake of the deal held in reserve for “the big guy,” a reference to Joe Biden, Bobulinski claims.

Joe Biden has repeatedly denied having any involvement in his son’s business affairs, claiming he’s “never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings.” He has referred to a Senate investigation into the Hunter Biden emails as a “desperate campaign to smear me and my family.”

Democrats have questioned the veracity Hunter Biden emails, suggesting the emails may be part of a disinformation campaign orchestrated by Russia to influence the 2020 election. The Department of Justice and the FBI have rejected this assessment.

Bobulinski claims that this email is authentic, that the Biden family arranged a deal with CEFC China Energy Co., and that Joe Biden was paid millions of dollars by this foreign entity with ties to the Chinese Communist Party.

“I’ve seen Vice President Biden saying he never talked to Hunter about his business. I’ve seen firsthand that that’s not true, because it wasn’t just Hunter’s business, they said they were putting the Biden family name and its legacy on the line,” Bobulinski said in his statement.

“The Biden family aggressively leveraged the Biden family name to make millions of dollars from foreign entities even though some were from communist controlled China,” he claimed.

Alleged texts from Hunter Biden business partner warn: ‘Don’t mention Joe being involved,’ Chinese wanted ‘to be partners with Bidens’

Hunter Biden’s former business partner claims that he warned another associate not to mention “Joe being involved” in their overseas dealings. Another alleged unearthed document from one of Hunter’s business associates told the chairman of a Chinese energy company that he looks forward to touting “the political and strategic value of the Biden family.”

On Thursday, Fox News’ chief congressional correspondent Mike Emanuel released photos of an alleged text message conversation between Tony Bobulinski and James Gilliar, business partners of Hunter Biden.

Gilliar reportedly sent text messages to Bobulinski on May 20, 2017.

“Don’t mention Joe being involved, it’s only when u are face to face, I know u know that but they are paranoid,” Gilliar allegedly wrote. Emmanuel clarified the “they” in the message by saying, “I’m told is a reference to Joe Biden.”

On May 19, 2017, Hunter Biden said, “My Chairman gave an emphatic no.”

On the same day, business associate Rob Walker allegedly informed Bobulinski about Hunter referring to Joe Biden as his “Chairman.”

Bobulinski told Fox News, “Hunter Biden called his dad ‘the Big Guy’ or ‘my Chairman,’ and frequently referenced asking him for his sign-off or advice on various potential deals that we were discussing.”

Joe Biden, the Democratic nominee, has repeatedly denied that he has involved himself in his son’s business affairs.

On May 2, 2017, Bobulinski sent a text to James Biden, Joe’s brother, that read, “Great to meet u and spend some time together, please thank Joe for his time, was great to talk thx Tony b,” according to Fox News.

On April 6, 2017, Hunter Biden was reportedly asked what the Chinese are interested in, and he replies, “Everything – the only thing I told them I would not do is defense related technology and and arms and anything that would give the Chinese a military advantage.”

Mollie Hemingway, senior editor at The Federalist, posted a photo of the alleged conversation.

“U need to stress to H[unter], does he want to be the reason or factor that blows up his dad’s campaign,” Gilliar reportedly told Bobulinski, referencing Joe Biden’s 2020 presidential campaign plans.

Another alleged screenshot from Bobulinski’s smashed up BlackBerry shows a text message conversation between Hunter Biden and Bobulinski.

“And TONY that is what Zhang implied – they are both coming to be MY partner to be partners with the Bidens,” Hunter allegedly texted. “He has implied that the #1 has made that clear and available to him.”

Bobulinski replied, “And HUNTER I think u r missing the point that I am outlining.”

Gilliar responds, “Think we are all on the same page,” along with an “OK” hand emoji.

The “Zhang” mentioned in the text message could be Tian Zhang, who was mentioned in a report released last month by Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) and Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) titled, “Hunter Biden, Burisma, and Corruption: The Impact on U.S. Government Policy and Related Concerns.”

The report stated:

“On the same day that the impending Rosneft deal was announced, Hunter Biden and Gongwen Dong, a Chinese national who has reportedly executed transactions for limited liability companies controlled by Ye Jianming, applied to a bank and opened a line of credit under the business name Hudson West III LLC (Hudson West III).”

Hudson West III was incorporated on April 19, 2016, more than a year before the credit cards were issued. Hudson West III, which is now dissolved, changed ownership at some unknown point. After that change, ownership was divided between Hunter Biden’s law firm, Owasco PC (50%) and Coldharbour Capital LLC (50%). Although ownership in Coldharbour Capital is equally divided between two individuals, Mervyn Yan and Tian Zhang, it has a business address identified as the address of Gongwen Dong. According to records on file with the Committees, Hudson West III checking accounts were opened on Aug. 3, 2017, and Sept. 6, 2017, with Yan and Robert Hunter Biden. Gongwen Dong was a former signer, which suggests that at one time he was associated with Hudson.”

Gongwen Dong’s name also resurfaced on Thursday, after an alleged email was exposed. The Federalist co-founder Sean Davis shared an image of a purported email that was sent to Bobulinski. Gongwen Dong was copied on the reported email that discusses an interest-free $5 million loan from Shanghai-based conglomerate CEFC China Energy Co.

“This $5 MM loan to BD family is interest-free. But if the $5 MM is used up, should CEFC keep lending more to the family? If CEFC lends more, they need to know the interest rate for the subsequent loan(s),” a CEFC official allegedly wrote to Bobulinski on Aug. 1, 2017.

Last month’s Senate Homeland Security and Senate Finance Committees report on Hunter Biden stated a loan from CEFC went to the Hudson West III company, which is partly owned by the former vice president’s son:

On Aug. 8, 2017, CEFC Infrastructure Investment wired $5 million to the bank account for Hudson West III. These funds may have originated from a loan issued from the account of a company called Northern International Capital Holdings, a Hong Kong-based investment company identified at one time as a ‘substantial shareholder’ in CEFC International Limited along with Ye. It is unclear whether Hunter Biden was half-owner of Hudson West III at that time. However, starting on Aug. 8, the same day the $5 million was received, and continuing through Sept. 25, 2018, Hudson West III sent frequent payments to Owasco, Hunter Biden’s firm. These payments, which were described as consulting fees, reached $4,790,375.25 in just over a year.

According to a report from The Daily Caller News Foundation on Thursday, Bobulinski was part of a five-person partnership with Hunter Biden and his uncle, James Biden. They formed a joint venture involving CEFC called “Oneida Holdings.”

Bobulinski reportedly wrote to Ye Jianming, the founder and former chairman of the now-bankrupt CEFC China Energy Company, who mysteriously disappeared in early 2018.

“I look forward to leveraging those relationships along with the political and strategic value of the Biden family, James Gilliar and CEFC to fulfill SinoHawk’s mission,” Bobulinski allegedly wrote to Ye on June 15, 2017.

The documents also allege that Hunter Biden formed a shell company named “GK Temujin LLC” on May 22, 2017.

Bobulinski claimed that he provided a trove of documents to the U.S. Senate committees who are investigating Hunter Biden’s overseas dealings.

On Thursday, Bobulinski confirmed that the report by the New York Post about Hunter Biden’s “lucrative” deal with the Chinese energy firm is “genuine.” He also claimed that the person referenced as the “big guy” who will reportedly get 10% in a business venture in leaked emails from Hunter’s laptop is a reference to Joe Biden.

2020 Election America is an idea Biden campaign Biden gaffe Intelwars Internet reactions Joe Biden Twitter reactions

Biden slammed for saying ‘America was an idea’ that ‘we’ve never lived up to’

Joe Biden proclaimed that the United States of America “was an idea” that “we’ve never lived up to.” The statement by the Democratic presidential nominee was quickly lambasted by many.

Biden made the controversial statement on Wednesday during an interview on the “Unlocking Us with Brené Brown” podcast in the midst of a discussion about the legacy of slavery in the United States.

“America was an idea, an idea. ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident,'” Biden said, quoting the Declaration of Independence. “We’ve never lived up to it, but we’ve never walked away from it before. And I just think we have to be more honest. Let our kids know, as we raise them, what actually did happen. Acknowledge our mistakes so we don’t repeat them.”

The Trump campaign responded to Biden’s statement that America was an idea.

“Running for President, Joe Biden’s closing argument is that America has always been a disappointment,” said Tim Murtaugh, director of communications for the Trump campaign. “You know he’s blaming this on you. And after 47 years as a failed DC politician, he wants you to believe that NOW he’ll get it right.”

“@JoeBiden Where have you been for 47 years? America is the greatest nation in the world. We stand for freedom and opportunity for all. Our nation is filled with strong, innovative and hard-working individuals who love this nation & don’t want to fundamentally transform it,” senior adviser to the campaign Mercedes Schlapp wrote on Twitter.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) reacted to Biden comments by saying, “47 years, 0 accomplishments. Americans deserve better than your apology tour.”

Many online commenters pointed out that American soldiers storming the beaches of Normandy to defeat the Nazis and making sacrifices during World War II were times that the country lived up to the “idea of America.”

Political scientist and author Ian Bremmer inquired, “Not even World War II? Creating the United Nations? MacArthur rebuilding Japan? The Marshall Plan?”

“‘We’ve never lived up to it’? Speak for yourself, man!” Center for American Liberty founder and trial lawyer Harmeet Dhillon responded. “This immigrant is so grateful to be an American — and I never diss her or take her for granted.”

Previously, Biden declared that Antifa is an idea. During the first presidential debate, Biden said, “Antifa’s an idea, not an organization.” Biden’s comment was applauded by far-left Portland mayoral candidate Sarah Iannarone, who said, “I love that Joe Biden answered this question before me, because being opposed to fascism in 2020 is not something to be embarrassed about.”

Also during the podcast interview, Biden commented on President Donald Trump’s executive order establishing the 1776 Commission to promote “patriotic education.” President Trump said children must be taught that America is “an exceptional, free and just nation, worth defending, preserving and protecting.”

The commission was a response to The New York Times’ “1619 Project,” which was used to “reframe the country’s history, understanding 1619 as our true founding, and placing the consequences of slavery and the contributions of black America at the very center of the story we tell ourselves about who we are.”

Biden continued, “So I think it’s important we teach history, not in a prescriptive way, from my perspective, but what actually the facts were without also acknowledging that there’s 400 years of racism in the United States of America. That’s what it is. And it’s able to be fixed. And I think most people are starting to step up to it.”

Hunter Biden business partner claims email detailing Chinese deal is ‘genuine,’ says ‘big guy’ is Joe Biden

A man claiming to be a former business partner of Hunter Biden has released a statement alleging that the email that the New York Post published about a “lucrative” deal with a Chinese company is “genuine.” The professed business associate also claims that Joe Biden not only knew about his son’s overseas dealings, but also profited from an agreement with a Chinese energy firm.

Tony Bobulinski is the CEO of Sinohawk Holdings, which he claimed formed a partnership with the now-bankrupt Shanghai-based China Energy Fund Committee, which was run by Ye Jianming, who has been missing since 2018.

“I am the CEO of Sinohawk Holdings which was a partnership between the Chinese operating through CEFC/Chairman Ye and the Biden family,” Bobulinski said in the statement that was published by the New York Post on Thursday. “I was brought into the company to be the CEO by James Gilliar and Hunter Biden.”

In an email allegedly obtained from Hunter Biden’s laptop, it details “remuneration packages” in a business venture for six people only identified as initials and nicknames. The email, which was written by James Gilliar of the international consulting firm J2cR, names Hunter Biden as the “Chair / Vice Chair depending on agreement with CEFC (China Energy Co).” His pay was noted to be “850.”

“In addition, the email outlined a ‘provisional agreement’ under which 80 percent of the ‘equity,’ or shares in the new company, would be split equally among four people whose initials correspond to the sender and three recipients, with ‘H’ apparently referring to Biden,” the Post reported.

As terms of the deal, the email states, “10 held by H for the big guy?” The “big guy” was not identified in the email, but Bobulinski claims that it is a reference to Joe Biden. There is a person identified as “JB” referenced in the email; Bobulinski alleged that it references Jim Biden, Joe’s brother.

“Hunter Biden called his dad ‘the Big Guy’ or ‘my Chairman,’ and frequently referenced asking him for his sign-off or advice on various potential deals that we were discussing,” said Bobulinski, who is a Navy veteran. “I’ve seen Vice President Biden saying he never talked to Hunter about his business. I’ve seen firsthand that that’s not true, because it wasn’t just Hunter’s business, they said they were putting the Biden family name and its legacy on the line.”

Joe Biden, the Democratic nominee, has repeatedly denied that he has never involved himself in his son’s business affairs, claiming he’s “never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings.”

Bobulinski added that he is cooperating with an investigation into Hunter Biden’s business overseas dealings led by U.S. Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.).

“The committee is working to validate information being revealed by multiple sources. As part of those efforts, we have reached out to several individuals named in recently revealed emails, including Tony Bobulinski. We look forward to their cooperation in helping us uncover the truth,” Johnson told Just the News.

Last month, Johnson and Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) released a report titled “Hunter Biden, Burisma, and Corruption: The Impact on U.S. Government Policy and Related Concerns.”

“The Johnson Report connected some dots in a way that shocked me — it made me realize the Bidens had gone behind my back and gotten paid millions of dollars by the Chinese, even though they told me they hadn’t and wouldn’t do that to their partners,” Bobulinski said.

Bobulinski claims that he is “not a political person,” and “what few campaign contributions I have made in my life were to Democrats.”

“I don’t have a political axe to grind; I just saw behind the Biden curtain and I grew concerned about what I saw,” he said. “The Biden family aggressively leveraged the Biden family name to make millions of dollars from foreign entities even though some were from communist controlled China.”

The email was sent on May 13, 2017, when Biden was no longer vice president.

Another of Hunter Biden’s alleged business associates is allegedly giving up information that could potentially be a problem for the Biden campaign.

Bevan Cooney, who is currently serving a prison sentence for fraud, reportedly provided access to his Gmail account to Breitbart investigative reporter and New York Times bestselling author Peter Schweizer. “These associates sought to trade on Hunter Biden’s relationship with, and access to, his father and the Obama-Biden White House in order to generate business,” the report alleges.

“We’re not looking at printouts. Not looking at PDFs. We’re actually in his Gmail accounts themselves, sifting through these emails,” Schweizer told Glenn Beck this week. “And there’s a shocking amount of information about deals involving China, involving Russia, involving all sorts of things they were trying to pull off.”

On Tuesday, Schweizer claimed that Cooney “has been removed from the federal facility in Oregon where he is being detained.”

The Bureau of Prisons declined to comment, telling the Washington Examiner, “For safety and security reasons, we do not discuss specific inmates’ conditions of confinement.”

On July 31, 2019, Cooney was sentenced to serve 30 months in prison for “defrauding a Native American tribal entity and various investment advisory clients of tens of millions of dollars in connection with the issuance of bonds by the tribal entity and the subsequent sale of those bonds through fraudulent and deceptive means,” the Southern District of New York U.S. Attorney’s Office said.

On Tuesday, Joe Biden dismissed the allegations stemming from the leaked emails from his son’s laptop that was reportedly left at a computer repair shop.

“This is the same garbage – Rudy Giuliani Trump’s henchmen,” Biden told WISN-TV during an interview. “It’s a last-ditch effort in this desperate campaign to smear me and my family.”

Rubin Report: Michael Malice makes election predictions you won’t hear from the MSM

Author, columnist, and media personality Michael Malice joined Dave Rubin on “The Rubin Report” this week to give his unique 2020 election predictions, and to explain why he believes we may be nearing the end of the progressive era.

Michael told Dave he realizes that most people think the world is collapsing into chaos, but said he sees the “disintegration” as an opportunity for hope. He said the chaos is actually the reaction of progressive elites who have “monopolized the conversation for a century ” and are now realizing their monopolistic control is quickly coming to an end.

“So, some very, very bad people are very, very worried about losing their stature and status in our society, and that should make right-thinking people very, very happy,” Malice said. “This should be something that’s an opportunity for hope.”

He goes on to make his predictions about what’s to come in the Trump-Biden contest and what a presidency under either would look like.

Big tech censorship Chinese communists Intelwars Joe Biden rudy giuliani

WATCH: Rudy Giuliani says he has PROOF Joe Biden was business partners with Chinese Communists

Tonight at 9 p.m. ET, 8 p.m. CT, Glenn Beck goes straight to the source of the biggest story in the country with former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who takes us directly into Hunter Biden’s alleged laptop.

Despite Big Tech’s attempts to squash this story, there should be a mad scramble in the media to get to the bottom of major corruption allegations, but they’re willfully ignoring it. However, this is not just a story about Hunter Biden.

This is all about Joe Biden. It’s a story Glenn has been investigating for over a year that traces back to Ukraine and China. It goes directly to the root of corruption within our political system: How politicians use their family members to enrich the entire clan and sell out their country.

While the media looks the other way, Glenn asks Giuliani to show us the evidence. Giuliani details the chain of possession of the laptop and reveals news that he only had possession of the laptop days before the New York Post story broke. He says, “I reported this the day after I saw it.”

He also drops a major bombshell on the show and says Big Tech doesn’t want you to see evidence that “establishes with texts, documents, contracts” that “Joe Biden was a 10% partner with a Chinese communist … and there are witnesses that will come forward and testify to it.”

Big Tech censorship is out of control. So to watch tonight’s explosive episode of Glenn TV, you must be a BlazeTV subscriber.
