A Daily Wire report on an interview on Bartiromo's show with the guy who insisted that, "The Mueller report and its conclusions weren’t from Robert Mueller. They were written by what a lot of people believe was Hillary Clinton’s de facto legal team, people that had supported her, even represented some of her aides.”?

[insert excessive haha's here]
I think a lot of people do not realize (or do not care about) the extent to which the US government now acts like a banana republic dictatorship.

Yes, when you grew up government officials generally (GENERALLY) told the truth. They don’t anymore.

I'm not even going to swear that Biden is entirely innocent. The 'evidence' here is murky and inconclusive, but I don't especially like the guy anyway. But the Hunter Biden business just seems an example of how generally flawed the US system is. As far as I could see only Sanders offered even a faint hope of that changing. Trump clearly doesn't. He's a swamp creature, he wallows in it.

The evidence is not murky and inconclusive. There is no need to claim that Biden is entirely innocent, all that’s needed is to say that there’s literally zero evidence of any wrongdoing. If that changes in the future, then re-evaluate.

Also, if you think an identical thing wouldn’t have happened with Sanders you’re dreaming.

It's not a question of whether it would have happened with Sanders personally, it's whether anything would have changed to mean it not happening over-and-over again in future. I just don't see that Biden is likely to change anything very much, structurally.

well well well. lookie here. what other diversion will you liberals come up with to protect your boys.?

Director Of National Intelligence Confirms Hunter Biden Laptop ‘Not Part Of Some Russian Disinformation Campaign’

Like ewdotson pointed out, the same man has made extremely dubious claims in the past about anyone that dares challenge Dear Leader Trump.

What's fascinating is just how quick you are to accept claims simply because they're pro-Trump. Like earlier: "that Hunter Biden scoop is totally legit because... reasons!" Never mind that it has logical holes so large you could drive a truck through them; it helps Trump, therefore it must be accurate. Even some of the other pro-Trump people don't mindlessly back stories with your level of enthusiasm.

(Not to say Democrat supporters are immune to automatically trusting reports, but generally they don't believe stories that are as obviously flawed as this one.)

It's going to be fascinating to see how you react if (and at this rate, when) Biden wins. I mean, I'm sure you'll try to portray Biden as evil incarnate no matter what he does, but your sense of self-worth is so obviously chained to Trump and the GOP that I'm curious to see what happens when you can't bank on them anymore.

No, Sanders would not have changed it from happening over and over in the future. These are the tactics Russia will use in every election going forward because they have evidence it is effective. There’s nothing any candidate can do to stop this.

Well, in part it's effective because the US system is increasingly stratified in terms of life-chances and class status. And politically the system is just not fit for purpose. It needs to be completely rebuilt. Sanders, as a moderate centre-left guy, offered at least a small move towards acknowledging that.

The orange slimeball did state:
"It is only a few people coming from China, and in a few days it will be none"
"we will be reopening by Easter"
Several of his stupid statements I watched directly, or listened to them directly, so unless the audio / video streams were hacked on the fly, he clearly said it.

I am sure you have already watched this one, right?
Damn, Quibbles 'n Bits are still trying to push their bullshit about Turmp not completely fucking up the pandemic? The stupidest part is its not even about Turmp (although they're definitely fans, I think even they realize how fucking dumb it makes them look to defend someone who will 5 minutes later straight up shit all over whatever shred of plausible deniability defense they can offer), its about them trying to claim they're never wrong about anything so they can keep their delusions about being perfect arbiters of truth on every subject from bursting, which is rather amusing considering how they're very often blatantly wrong (look up their posts about the 2008 financial crisis - literally might have been the single dumbest political take I've ever seen on here from anyone, including people that straight up admitted later they were trolling or knew what they posted was bullshit).

Radcliffe is political appointee who is schilling for Trump.

I will believe it if the following occurs

CIA Director Haspel confirms
FBI Director Wray confirms
Neither of them is in Trump's pocket.

Both confirm that laptop really belonged to Hunter Biden and those emails were created by him

Are you still sticking to the premise Hunter having a laptop with sensitive information just dropped it off at a shop of a blind guy and just left it there? You but that you are as crazy as the rest of the deplorables.

Even if any of this is true what evidence is there Job Biden was involved?

There is talk Hunter might have had some child porn on his computer. Fbi guy who investigates these things supposedly subpoenaed the laptop in question.
I guess that adds to the likely hood Hunter would have just dropped it off to some computer guy and just leave it. Another bullshit rumor being spread by Ron Johnson. And you buy it?

What has a better chance of being true? Hunter having child porn on a laptop that he just gave to someone or Trump fucking his own daughter?

Maybe I'll start that poll.

Radcliffe is probably technically right. My guess is rudy's laptop is part of some Russian disinformation campaign.

Hey there, have you decided whether or not you are mad about Trump taking bribes from foreign governments yet?

I only ask because you seemed really mad about the baseless idea that Biden might be.

Also, someone I know has a laptop that belongs to oilfieldtrash that’s totally filled with child porn. What, you want me to have someone verify it’s his? Stop being an apologist for him. You’re fake news.

Honestly I’m outraged that your laptop my friend came into possession of had child porn on it. That’s revolting and your hypocrisy of condemning other people having CP on their laptops when it’s on your very own computer is disgusting.

Not so great when people apply your standards of evidence to you, huh?

Ok, so if apple devices automatically backup EVERYTHING to icloud.
What was there to "recover" that wasn't backed up to icloud in the first place? :oops:

If all hardcore Qanon people and folks like Oilfield that are now convinced Hunter Biden is also a child molester simply spontaneously combusted, America would not only be better, so would the planet. That won't happen, so instead, let's take back teh government and try to give them healthcare.
