RE Hunter Biden

I am totally confident that if Hunter had done anything that could be used against him (and by association, his dad), he would have told Joe before he sought the nomination.

He would have told him there was something that, if looked into/exposed, could hurt his candidacy if nominated, and could potentially cost him the election. At that point, Joe would have dropped out of contention, rather than jeopardize a Democratic win against Trump.

The Hunter Biden laptop story was so ludicrous, even FOX didnít buy it. It literally fizzled out before the hoped-for PR explosion got a chance to get off the ground.

So why go back to trying to smear Joe with alleged Hunter Biden wrongdoings?

Probably for the same reason that the Trumpsters have been in court over 50 times in the past few weeks, trying virtually the same case over and over Ė and being laughed out of court every single time.

They donít learn from their mistakes. They do the same things over and over, and are convinced that eventually the outcome will change.

Another reason is that this is a shot over the bow: We know youíre coming for Trumpís kids, so weíll go after yours first. Then, when your administration goes after the Trump brats, we can say youíre just seeking revenge for investigations into your son.

And then thereís the most glaringly obvious reason: The GOP has nothing else. The ďvoter fraudĒ bullshit didnít change the outcome of the election, so why not allege crimes against the president-electís son? (Which, in and of itself, is proof that they couldnít find any Ďdirtí on the president-elect himself.)

Just remember that all of Trumpís sycophants have been focused on Hunter Biden for months Ė and all theyíve come up with is nothing. If they actually had anything, they would have disclosed it before Biden was elected, not after.

Donít be fooled. The Hunter Biden story is just another tale to be told by people who spin lies for a living.

2. And I'm confident that if the DOJ had had something big on him they wouldn't have been sitting on it

This is all probably happening now to provide a cover and distraction for the pardons of Donnie Jr., Ivanka, and Jared.

3. Thank you, Nance! I used to see

some on here "concerned" about Hunter Biden. Didn't fly, did it?

And, that's why trump got impeached..

Trump's impeachment came after a formal House inquiry alleged that he had solicited foreign interference in the 2020 U.S. presidential election to help his re-election bid, and then obstructed the inquiry itself by telling his administration officials to ignore subpoenas for documents and testimony.

Soliciting manufactured dirt on Joe & Hunter Biden from a Foreign Country to help his re-electon chances. Same shite he pulled with the "democrat Hoax" Covid Shite.

Same shit they pulled with Benghazi.

10. It's the only trick their pony knows.

Total war against who or whatever stands in their path, against the will of their owners.

Create "facts" to support lies. (Cigarettes aren't bad for you at all and it can't be proven that they are.)
Deny facts to support contentions. (Seat belts don't really keep people safer. They're just taking away your rights.)
Assassinate character to deflect from message. (Hillary is a _____*fill in blank*. Why even listen to her?) And not only her!
Set up opposition to unreasonable ridicule. (Tree huggers are ridiculous persons full of themselves who want to return to the stone age.)
Mischaracterize and take out of context. (I heard Al Gore say he invented the internet, what an idiot.)
Create memes and phrases that are outright lies. (Clean coal, cheap nuclear energy, putting people ahead of profit)
Challenge and demonize educational norms. (The elitist left think they should get their college degree for free. I have to work for a living, why shouldn't they?)
and on and on.........

And all this to support the maintenance of industry on the wrong side of history, standing in the path of progress and whose stock-holders stand to lose big if there is any change. Big oil, big pharma, big tobacco, big energy, big coal, big tech, big etc. In every forum and at every stage their goals are to maintain the status quo and they're well funded to do so. Because bankers have NO imagination, only spreadsheets and GIGO.

4. They're always going to rake in a few fools who will believe a story

No matter how implausible a story is, or how much it is disproven.

A couple of nights ago my ex-husband (now a trumper) called me out of the blue. Against my better judgement I answered. He asked me some lame question about a legal matter, and then he asked me if I thought we were going to become a socialist country. I told him I don't watch propaganda tv. He ONLY watches FauxNews.

But that's how those trash networks operate. They plant some seeds, knowing at least some of their gullible low intelligence viewers will buy into it.

5. There is a reason though that they harp on lies.

Their base believes where there is smoke there's fire. But only about Democrats. Just repeating and pounding away the name Hunter is going to make it the new Benghazi.

6. I'm confident in asking,

Why do we care? Anybody that supports Donald J. Trump again, has no standing to have complaints about anybody or anything so I donít care what Hunter Biden did or didnít do.

9. That's where I'm at too

I don't care. Hunter is his own person. If he did or didn't do something improper is of no consequence.

I'm way more concerned with damage that the big orange LOSER is doing NOW than what a private citizen may or may not have been involved with in the past.

7. I don't think Dems are fooled by anything Trump say while some Trumpers are fooled by everything.

However, I think a lot of them aren't fooled either, they follow him because they are as bad as he is.

11. Amazing, ain't it? And I must agree, even against my conscience, with your conclusion.

Because people will ultimately and always be judged by their deeds. Grace only spreads so thin before it's ineffable.

8. trump's doing what he always does,

Accuse his opposition of what he's doing , and with this its what his kids are doing, just like Hitler's Joseph Goebels, who did this then too. Next he'll claim Joe Biden knew about his son, and helped him . Just like with having evidence on fraud , he doesn't have it,
and just like he claimed with his birther movement , he never had anything , and it was just all lies, like it is now with everything he's claiming. Next he'll get others to start using violence, claiming the other side is behind it. Then get his lackey's in Congress to try to pull stunts to stop Congress from proceeding. Its also designed to rile up his followers so he can shake them down for more money.

13. Doing dumb things over and over is how the right wing echo chamber works.

It only took 30 years for them to grind down HRC to the point the GrOPpers could convince everyone they'd won*.


* Not the Popular Vote, but, the Electoral College.

that could land him in jail.

18. They're just tossing red meat to their rabid base inside their info bubble....

and they will continue to do it every day. There's no telling who their next victim will be.

They really don't care what those outside their bubble thinks, so long as the brainwashed Limbaugh and Fox/OAN listeners hear it first.

Our difficulty is that we cannot conceive of Americans being that isolated from reality and truth, but it is a real and very dangerous state we're in today.

19. Defang that serpent

Easiest way to defang that serpent is for President Biden to say he will not stand in the way of the independent investigator because Hunter has done nothing wrong. When the investigation is complete it will show that and the report will be released.

I suspect this is a big nothing burger because it had been going on for a long while and nothing has been found. I think I remember reading that the only thing found so far is corruption by a bank that may have loaned him money.

21. Yup, it's the same old story. They have nothing on the Bidens so they do what they always do best

The Trumps falsely accuse others of what they themselves are guilty of, a routine that comes easy for sociopaths like them.
