Nothing to see…. move along

  1. Well, nothing to see except a regurgitation of an opinion piece linked to in an earlier blog.

  2. Nearly all of the press is ignoring this story

    Including their own news desk.

  3. Mote and beam stuff from the Trumpistas. Their man is the most corrupt POTUS since Warren Harding in the 1920s. This Administration stinks of shameless corruption:

    “On any given day, a glut of lobbyists, lawmakers, foreign agents and other favor-seekers come through the Trump International, schmoozing with administration bigwigs — on occasion the president himself — and spending gobs of cash. This ritual not only strokes the president’s ego — What a swank place you have here, sir! — it enriches his family business, ownership of which Mr. Trump has refused to divest himself. We aren’t talking about a few overpriced martinis or breakfast meetings but, rather, some serious, high-dollar hobnobbing. In the six months ending in March 2017, the government of Saudi Arabia spent at least $270,000 at the hotel.

    An investigation by The Times found over 200 companies, special-interest groups and foreign governments that patronized Mr. Trump’s properties while reaping benefits from him and his administration,” the paper reported, concluding that the president has “built a system of direct presidential influence-peddling unrivaled in modern American politics. Some of Mr. Trump’s more egregious self-enrichment projects have failed. Most notably, his plan to host this year’s Group of 7 meeting at the Trump National Doral resort near Miami met with so much political blowback that he quickly abandoned the idea. But at this stage, his clan’s routine self-dealing barely raises an eyebrow.

    The president’s campaign contributors, large and small, also do their share to support the first family. This cycle, Trump businesses have received more than $4 million from the president’s campaign-related committees and the Republican Party…”

  4. Most notably, his plan to host this year’s Group of 7 meeting at the Trump National Doral resort near Miami met with so much political blowback that he quickly abandoned the idea.

    That was so blatant an example of self-dealing, it was funny.

  5. updated…..

  6. “updated…..”

    Where are the statements from the relevant House committees, or even the Ranking Member of the Senate committees confirming these things?

  7. “On any given day, a glut of lobbyists, lawmakers, foreign agents and other favor-seekers come through the Trump International, schmoozing with administration bigwigs — on occasion the president himself — and spending gobs of cash.

    Anyone who knows anything about President Trump knows that this is bullshit. And of course the NYT – bullshitters di tutti bullshitters – name no names. They name no names because the NYT lies every day. They all lie every day.

    One of the primary reasons for the DC hostility to Trump is that he cut the lobbyists off on day one. The White House was cut off from K Street at a stroke. With his election literally billions in bribes, favours and back scratches went up in smoke.

  8. update….

  9. So he didn’t try to steer a major international conference to his own Florida property?

    He’s honest that way?

  10. Money Laundering, Exposed, No answer Joe…..

    and it’s one, two, three, strikes…….

  11. yeah but pat, people have already voted in their millions for hunter biden

  13. great find paul ..lol
    same guys as pizzagate behind the current lame strike
    too funny ..

    Down goes Rudy Giuliani
    Lisa Kennedy compared the Hunter Biden scandal with the Steele Dossier, suggesting that there is no real supporting evidence for it. (Except, of course, the Steele Dossier alleges Russian collusion with the Trump campaign, and there was plenty of evidence of that in the Mueller Report.) At that point Rudy went on a seven minute rant of outrage for being compared with a “criminal” like Christopher Steele.

  14. Anyone who knows anything about President Trump knows that this is bullshit. And of course the NYT – bullshitters di tutti bullshitters – name no names. They name no names because the NYT lies every day. They all lie every day.

    Bullshit. The report on Trump’s shameless and open corruption is totally corroborated. Here’s some more:

    “Even Americans who don’t support Mr. Trump are filling his coffers. Each time the president, a family member or certain top administration officials visit a Trump property, taxpayers foot the bill for the security details that must tag along. On a 2019 trip to Ireland, Vice President Mike Pence stayed at a Trump resort located on the far side of the country from where his official meetings were being held. (In addition to whatever taxpayers spent on lodging, the additional ground transportation cost nearly $600,000.)

    The Washington Post has estimated that the U.S. government had paid well over $1 million to the president’s company since he took office in costs associated with the Secret Service. This includes at least 530 nights at Mar-a-Lago and 950 nights at the president’s club in Bedminster, N.J.

    Taxpayers are also footing part of the bill for business trips by the Trump kids. In January 2017, Eric Trump jetted down to Uruguay to check on one of the Trump Organization’s condo projects, costing Americans around $98,000 in hotel rooms for the Secret Service and embassy staff members. Two trips the following month, one by Eric to the Dominican Republic and one by Eric and Don Jr. to Dubai, ran taxpayers nearly $250,000 for Secret Service expenses such as airfare, lodging and ground transportation.

    In May of 2018, China awarded Mr. Trump’s golden child, Ivanka, seven trademarks for her now-defunct lifestyle brand, right around the same time her father was pledging to save a major Chinese telecommunications company, ZTE, from going belly up. Ivanka’s office said there was no special treatment involved…”

  15. wow , pat all these updates, spin that yarn my man spin away
    the best part is your new shoes, now I’d be unkind if i said i didn’t like them
    I love em man and want a pair myself. where did you buy them 😉

    The phony “Hunter Biden laptop” scandal has fallen so flat and had so little impact, Donald Trump already seems to be moving on from it, even as his devotees like Rudy Giuliani and Tucker Carlson continue to try to prop up what’s left of the conspiracy theory. Now the whole thing just took an even bigger blow.

    NBC News is reporting that the Hunter Biden dossier that started all this nonsense was written by a person and a company that don’t even exist. It turns out “Typhoon Investigations” isn’t a real company, and “Martin Aspen” isn’t a real person. It’s not just that the author was using a fake name; Even his accompanying profile picture was created through artificial intelligence In other words, whoever put together this phony document didn’t want their name on it, and didn’t want it traced back to them in any way. The claims that it made about Hunter Biden were already laughably absurd. But now this latest development points to something particularly sinister when it comes to the creation and distribution of the phony dossier.

    Right I’m outa here just took a look at the face Peter that goes with those shoes.
    Pat thought he had a gotcha moment , literally within 5 mins karma was served by Paul McMahon who got the scoop
    I think someone is gonna blow

  18. It’s a bombshell –

    @KFOX14

    1h

    A justice department official has confirmed that the FBI opened up a criminal investigation into Hunter Biden and his associates in 2019, focused on allegations of money-laundering and that the probe remains active.

    The FBI has been investigating Hunter Biden and his corrupt friends since 2019 and no-one said anything. So Joe Biden, who really could be compromised to the point of being a national security risk, becomes the Democratic nominee. Anything to protect the Dems.

    As of tonight, the only reasonable explanation for Trump’s impeachment is that he got too close to the Biden crime racket.

  19. opening an investigation means nothing and no one should be telling anyone there is an investigation

  20. update….. this one from a NYTs reporter

  21. “update….. this one from a NYTs reporter”

    No it isn’t. James Rosen works for the Sinclair Group and used to work for Fox News.

  22. sinclar @nytimes……. that’s what his twitter bio says…. if you disagree tell rosen not me

  23. “sinclar @nytimes……. that’s what his twitter bio says…. if you disagree tell rosen not me”

    ‘@nytimes bestselling author’

    Slightly different from New York Times reporter. It would help if you actually read your own links instead of just posting them.

  24. update….. this one from a NYTs reporter

    Ah Pat, it’s not:

    Paul McMahon, on October 29th, 2020 at 10:45 PM Said:

    ‘Breitbart’

    ‘Sinclair reporter’

    ‘A DOJ official’

  25. ahhh Seamus the LINK and the story is not about James Rosen, he is the author of the tweet not the subject. I missread his bio in the 2 seconds I looked at it….. now you can diflect what the tweet is about by concentrating on my mistake if that’s what makes you feel good….

    but it doesn’t change the facts…. Hunters Laptap has been in the possession of the FBI for a year for a money laundering operation. It was kept secret until the store clerk blew the whistle and dumped copies of it every where, Bobulinski hearing for the first time that the FBI has had Hunter’s Laptop for year and it has his name all over it… He knows they were doing crooked shit and it’s only a matter of time before they come pounding on his door so he shits and stands forward like mr clean…. turning over more implicating material….

    No this is a clusterfucj clown show. You can’t make up comedy this good….

    What the Bidens were engaged in is regretfully regular practice among our political elite on all sides Seamus. It’s to bad Hunter had to expose it while his father is running for president but to coin a phrase shit happens.

  26. “ahhh Seamus the LINK and the story is not about James Rosen, he is the author of the tweet not the subject. I missread his bio in the 2 seconds I looked at it….. now you can diflect what the tweet is about by concentrating on my mistake if that’s what makes you feel good….”

    You said it was a New York Times reporter, in order to lend it credence. That it is another right-wing source from a tabloid like news agency means it can be taken with a pinch of salt.

    Are any real journalists reporting on this? Why are no serious conservative journalists reporting on it?

  27. You said it was a New York Times reporter, in order to lend it credence.

    lol…. no I said it to bust phantoms stones….

    Seamus this whole post is just me throwing rocks in the pool…. and laughing at the fish.

  28. “Seamus this whole post is just me throwing rocks in the pool…. and laughing at the fish.”

    Except everyone can see past your attempts on this one. No one is taking this story seriously. They all know it is far-right tinfoil hat stuff.

  29. The world , the news, the media, Twitter, Facebook, have all got their bullshit detectors going good
    That’s why none of this is flying like it was in 2016 .
    Basically pat and petem hannity , tucker n foxnews have learnt nothing in 4 years
    But the rest of us have moved on

    I know it hurts you but justice can be a bitter pill 💊
    Nite nite losers

  30. Except everyone can see past your attempts on this one. No one is taking this story seriously. They all know it is far-right tinfoil hat stuff.

    That statement is amazing. You really think it false don’t you.

    Seamus the Biden’s aren’t even saying it’s false.

    wow

  31. Why is Bobo any less a credible witness than John Dean during Watergate? Why is he any less a smoking gun? Even if Biden is elected, this may not go away. He has been compromised by the CCP.

  32. Seamus the Biden’s aren’t even saying it’s false.

    That’s because Biden is ignoring it. As is everyone else outside the Fox-Breitbart-Limbaa bubble.

    Trump should be worried about that dress with DNA on it. That story is gonna fly as soon as he has to give a sample. Consigliere Barr tried to save his ass yesterday but failed. That sample will have to be given and matched to the dress of the woman (yet another one) who has accused him of raping her. Tick tock:

  33. “Seamus the Biden’s aren’t even saying it’s false.”

    The Biden’s aren’t saying anything about it. They are moving on to what actually matters, not being distracted by this, and treating it with the absolute contempt it deserves.

    The simply fact is that if there was one ounce of truth to this then actual journalists, rather than tabloids, shock jocks and entertainment providers, would be reporting on it.

    “Why is Bobo any less a credible witness than John Dean during Watergate? Why is he any less a smoking gun? Even if Biden is elected, this may not go away. He has been compromised by the CCP.”

    Because John Dean’s testimony was taken by prosecutors, and by law enforcement. Tony Bobulinski says he met with agents at FBI headquarters. If the comparisons between Bobulinski and Dean are merited then arrests and prosecutions would follow. But the idea that John Dean talking to (a bipartisan) congressional investgation, and talking to the grand jury, should be compared to Tony Bobulinski talking to right-wing tabloids is nonsense.

  34. This whole post is just me throwing rocks in the pool…. and laughing at the fish

    The Poe’s Law defence….again?

    Seamus the Biden’s aren’t even saying it’s false

    That’s because they don’t want to be seen to be giving credence to a load of balls which is precisely what the propaganda activists want them to do.

    Even if Biden is elected, this may not go away. He has been compromised by the CCP

    I don’t see that he has, Charles, although I suspect that’s the central strategy from the off rather than hoping this guff would have any effect on votes.

    On Tuesday, Carlson interviewed Hunter Biden’s former business partner Tony Bobulinski, who claimed that he had information linking the Biden family to questionable Chinese business dealings. When Bobulinski claimed to have information connecting the Bidens to the dealings, high-profile conservatives on social media saw it as a watershed moment for the party lagging behind by double digits in nationwide polls. Bobulinski’s claims are unverified at this time.

    Documentation published by the New York Post in October regarding the matter received widespread backlash, with some saying that the story was based on uncorroborated sources. The report, which revived allegations of corruption against the former vice president, used emails and information obtained from a laptop that had been abandoned at a computer repair store in Delaware. The store’s legally blind owner could not confirm that the laptop was owned by Hunter Biden. President Donald Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani reportedly delivered the contents of the hard drive to the Post

    https://www.newsweek.com/tucker-carlson-says-he-had-authentic-damning-new-hunter-biden-documents-it-got-lost-mail-1543084

    That’s the sum of ‘evidence’ of their accusations, Charles.

  35. Charlie Cook of the respected Cook Political Report wrote an article last night titled “Don’t expect a contested election.” The upshot is that he expects Joe Biden to win by a wide enough margin that the results will be unmistakable, and Trump won’t even have an angle for challenging them. There is a good chance that he’s right about this; the Cook Political Report is one of the best at calling results.

  36. Seems even good ole tucker is scared the stink might stick to him

    https://www.thedailybeast.com/tucker-carlson-suddenly-says-its-time-to-leave-hunter-biden-alone

  37. It never ceases to amaze me when Patrick seems surprised that we won’t accept the same standard of evidence, (i.e. zero evidence), that he will. (When that suits his opinion of course.)

  38. lol , this is one day Troll really doesn’t want to get out of bed
    the whole thing has imploded, and now even Tucker is moving on
    ( they got a tip from trump campaign to pull it – its not working )
    now he’s rolling over and pretending he doesn’t want to hit on Hunter
    Priceless

    p.s also the revelation that the authors are a fake company with a fake author
    played a significant part ..

    oh well trump back to healthcare, claiming you have a plan .. where the fuck is it ?
    and pretending you want to keep pre-existing conditions , whilst aggressively pursuing a scotus case to demolish exactly that protection .

    you couldn’t make it up !

    the asshole really is turning inside out
    its not a pretty sight, but its where we are

  39. Seems even good ole tucker is scared the stink might stick to him

    Superb. It seems like Carlson is doing a 180 shit the bed. It demonstrates just how much this has blown up in their face?

    It should be interesting now to note how the narrative changes.

  40. Paul I think its back to Durham report – pronto as a face-saver
    expect a carter page, FISA, Flynn, Durham thingy growler 🙂

  41. Maybe offer some hard up folks some money
    Go on record say Bidens ate my pet hamster .
    Can’t see much else now 😂

  42. Keep it classy you psycho pishwads
