FEATURED ANALYSIS

Bobulinski, the Bidens, and the Corrupt FBI

If there were any lingering doubts about whether the FBI helped rig the 2020 election for Joe Biden, whistleblower Tony Bobulinski put them to rest yesterday.

Douglas Andrews

The words hung there like a damp shirt: “You can call it rigged. You can call it stolen. You could call it suppressed. The American people can call it whatever they want. But the fact pattern is the FBI alone altered history in that election.”

So said Tony Bobulinski, who is likely the most important witness in American history ever to be willfully ignored by what was once the world’s finest law enforcement organization.

Bobulinski was Hunter Biden’s business partner, and he kept all the receipts. He’s the guy, the former U.S. Navy officer, who sat down with the FBI for a five-hour interview on October 23, 2020, and who, as journalist Miranda Devine notes, shared with the bureau the contents of “his three cellphones containing encrypted messages between Hunter and [his uncle] Jim Biden and their business partners, emails, and financial documents detailing the Biden family’s influence-peddling operation in foreign countries during Joe’s vice presidency.”

We first wrote about this patriot — and he is a patriot — just days before the 2020 presidential election. At that time, he’d gone into great detail during a Fox News interview with Tucker Carlson about the events surrounding his two meetings in 2017 with Joe Biden — meetings the Biden campaign and its protectors in both Congress and the mainstream media reflexively and falsely dismissed as “a Russian smear campaign.”

More recently — a month ago, in fact — we wrote that the FBI had spiked Bobulinski’s story and had colluded with Facebook to suppress it on social media. We know this because Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg publicly admitted as much.

And the FBI man behind that spiking? That would be former FBI Assistant Special Agent in Charge Timothy Thibault (pronounced TEE-bo). He was assigned by the Washington Field Office as “point man” to manage Bobulinski, but he suppressed this whistleblower’s damning and bullet-proof allegations.

Fox News’s Tucker Carlson, who interviewed Bobulinski just prior to the 2020 election, figured it’d be worth interviewing him again as we approach the two-year anniversary of his bombshell revelations to the New York Post. Here’s what Carlson said last night:

Two years later, we still consider it a huge story. Yet, in all of that time, no other major news organization in this country has bothered to follow up. The New York Times never interviewed Tony Bobulinski as part of an investigation into the Biden family business deals, which is strange because he was a partner with the Biden family. But then neither has The Washington Post. Neither have the other television networks. They’ve ignored it.

The FBI, whose job it is to enforce federal law, did take a lengthy statement from Tony Bobulinski back in 2020 and during that conversation, he outlined several felonies the Bidens had committed and he would know because he saw it and then he provided extensive documentation to prove that it happened.

The agents he spoke to seemed shocked and they promised to get back to Bobulinski for a follow-up interview, but they never did. In fact, the FBI never called Tony Bobulinski again. No one was ever indicted for these crimes. The investigation into them was squelched.

There you have it. Nothing to see here, you Walmart-shopping Trump supporters. Move along.

If you feel betrayed by the FBI, you’re not alone. Perhaps worst of all, though, is that Director Christopher Wray has never even seen fit to address this clear-as-day case of election interference. Perhaps, when the Republicans grab away those gavels from House Democrats in January, they’ll ask him some tough questions.

Bobulinski also said this: “The difference between President Trump and Joe Biden was 43,000 votes. If half of those people, 21,500, had voted for President Trump instead of Biden, President Trump would still be in the White House.”

He’s right, of course, and we’ve made the point over and over and over again. And again. Biden didn’t win by a landslide. He won by a razor-thin margin in three states — Arizona, Georgia, and Wisconsin — and polling shows that a whopping 17% of Biden voters would’ve changed their vote for him if only they’d known about the corruption the FBI and Facebook and Twitter worked to keep from them.

So let’s forget about the implausibility of Basement Joe Biden getting more population-adjusted votes than Barack Obama ever got. And let’s forget about the nonstarter of rigged voting machines. Let’s even forget about the obvious and irrefutable bulk-mail ballot fraud that Democrats deployed in the big cities of the decisive swing states.

All we need to remember is that the FBI worked with Big Tech to suppress a real and vitally important news story about Joe Biden’s corruption and thereby rigged the 2020 presidential election in his favor.

The Big Lie is the mainstream media’s ongoing efforts to suppress this truth.

Will Herschel Walker’s Fumble Cost Him the Game?

Once Walker overtook Warnock in Senate polling, the Leftmedia hit him in the backfield.

Nate Jackson

All Herschel Walker had to do was announce his candidacy, and the former running back broke free of the line of other Republicans and ran to score the GOP nomination to challenge Georgia Senator Raphael Warnock. Walker’s immense popularity in the Peach State dates back to his days at the University of Georgia, when the Bulldogs won the 1980 football national title and Walker won 1982 Heisman Trophy. It certainly seems, however, that the state Republican Party failed to fully vet its guy.

October surprise allegations that Walker paid for an unidentified girlfriend’s abortion back in 2009 were intended to damage the credibility of a guy running as the pro-life candidate — especially a “proud pro-life Christian” who sees “no exception” to banning the barbaric practice of abortion. The story is backed by the literal receipt and other evidence corroborated by witnesses, though Walker denies it. “I can tell you right now, I never asked anyone to get an abortion,” he insisted. “I never paid for an abortion and it’s a lie.” He promises to sue The Daily Beast for defamation over the “repugnant hatchet job” written by “a democrat [sic] activist disguised as a reporter.”

Of the $700 personal check Walker wrote to the old girlfriend, he says, “I give money to people all the time because I’m always helping people — because I believe in being generous.”

The truth is that Walker’s personal life was already a liability. He’s fathered four children, including three out of wedlock, and his adult homosexual son bears witness (in more ways than one) to Walker’s failures as a father. Having previously publicly supported his dad’s Senate bid, Christian Walker took to Twitter with a number of posts slamming his father for lying and mistreating his family. That history includes the infamous incident involving threatening his then-wife while holding a gun to her head.

Walker has been honest about his problematic mental health. As for the abortion revelations, there could be understandable explanations, but is he being honest? We certainly don’t trust the Leftmedia to tell the truth, especially when it comes to blacks who don’t stay on the Democrat Plantation. For example, it’s telling that The Daily Best says Walker and his girlfriend “conceived a child.” For the side that denies life in the womb, using such language can only mean the purpose is to inflict greater damage on Walker. It’s also telling that these allegations didn’t come out until Walker had overtaken Warnock in the polls.

Still, something seems off about Walker’s denial.

As Jim Geraghty put it, “A better candidate would have leaked the details of a past scandal to a more friendly news institution, talked about the hard lessons and what he learned, how he became a better person, and then after a few days declare it old news.” Even given the way it played out, admission and contrition would have won quick forgiveness from pro-lifers who are used to embracing converted former abortionists and people like Norma McCorvey, the plaintiff in Roe.

Naturally, Democrats are spiking the football. See, they say, Walker’s an unworthy hypocrite and a moral failure. What they would rather you forget is that Raphael Warnock is no better. The “reverend” also has been accused of domestic abuse, which he too denies. Moreover, he adds an anti-Semitic and anti-American Marxist past to his radical record doing Chuck Schumer’s bidding as Georgia’s senator for the last two years.

Still, Republicans have a big problem. Warnock’s hatchet men in the media know that pro-lifers aren’t going to ditch Walker and vote for Warnock, who wants taxpayer-funded abortion right up until birth. But Democrats know that some folks will sit on the sidelines and not vote. That could blow a golden opportunity for the GOP to take back a key Senate seat in a desperate race to wrestle control of the upper chamber from Schumer and the Democrats.

After costing the GOP both Georgia Senate seats in 2020, Donald Trump endorsed Walker early on. Along with a couple of other dubious Trump picks this year, it’s possible the GOP will lose Georgia’s seat for a second time, and that could cost them the Senate itself. That would be an astounding fumble.

Then again, Republican voters did rally around the similarly flawed Trump — twice. These voters, argues Ben Domenech, “are more interested in winning no matter what than in feeling good about polite honorable losers.”

Like it or not, Walker is the GOP candidate. “The Georgia senate race is now between one man with a very sketchy personal life and a history of domestic abuse vs. another man with a sketchy personal life who won’t vote for $9 gas, open borders, and unlimited abortion,” says Greg Price. “Make your choice, Georgia. ‘But Herschel Walker was a bad candidate.’ Okay, but the bottom line is he is still the Republican nominee and that is not changing. There are only two choices, both of them have flawed personal lives, but one will give Chuck Schumer two more years with control of the Senate.”

Executive News Summary

National debt tops $31 trillion, crooked IRS staffers took thousands in fraudulent COVID relief, and more.

Thomas Gallatin & Jordan Candler

Cross-Examination

  • National debt tops $31 trillion: The total national debt has officially surpassed $31 trillion. Much of the recent debt came from the government’s response to the COVID pandemic, as wild new spending in Washington increased the rate of debt accumulation. By the end of 2020, federal government spending added $3.1 trillion to the debt, and an additional $2.8 trillion was added in 2021. By the end of this year, government spending is projected to add an additional $1 trillion to the national debt, much of it thanks to Democrats passing Joe Biden’s erroneously named Inflation Reduction Act. Some economists see $1 trillion as the new baseline average the government will add annually. Of the new record, Republican Representative Chip Roy (TX) observed that the national debt was “$21 trillion just 5 years ago.” It was $11 trillion in 2009. Fellow Republican James Baird (IN) noted, “This is what happens when Congressional Democrats engage in unchecked partisan spending — and hardworking Americans are paying the price.” Meanwhile, Biden insists that he is being fiscally responsible, regularly touting that he “reduced the deficit $350 billion” this year. His “responsibility” is the result of convenient timing and failure to pass his full agenda.
  • Crooked IRS staffers took thousands in fraudulent COVID relief: The Justice Department has charged five current and former IRS employees with wire fraud related to their theft of thousands of dollars in COVID relief funds. According to U.S. Attorney Kevin Ritz, “These individuals — acting out of pure greed — abused their positions by taking government funds meant for citizens and businesses who desperately needed it.” He added, “Our office will not hesitate to pursue and charge individuals who steal from our nation’s taxpayers.” The IRS employees are charged with defrauding the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) and the Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL), two programs Congress set up to provide relief funds for small business owners impacted by the pandemic. The individuals charged stole funds in the range of $11,000 to more than $170,000. We’re sure the 87,000 new IRS employees will do better.
  • San Francisco celebrates 73 years of Chinese communism: The Chinese communist flag was flown over San Francisco’s city hall last week in a gesture commemorating the October 1, 1949, victory of Mao Zedong’s communist forces formally proclaiming their control over China. The genocide that Mao’s communists would mete out on the Chinese people is unparalleled in world history. Of course, that history is entirely ignored, as one of America’s most leftist cities is perfectly fine with Beijing’s anti-liberty agenda. And this practice is nothing new. Back in 2014, San Fransisco’s then-mayor explained why city hall flew the communist China flag: “San Fransisco, as well as California, has very strong ties with China.” And those ties have seemingly only grown despite continued examples of China’s inhumane treatment of minority groups like the Uyghurs, which last year the U.S. State Department declared a genocide. Just last month, Governor Gavin Newsom signed legislation making the Chinese Lunar New Year a state holiday. In doing so, Newsom proclaimed, “Recognizing this day as a state holiday acknowledges the diversity and cultural significancy Asian Americans bring to California and provides an opportunity for all Californians to participate in the significance of the Lunar New Year.” Beijing praised Newsom’s action. Yet last year Newsom renamed Columbus Day “Indigenous People’s Day” because of woke activists blaming the Italian explorer for unleashing colonialism and death onto the native Americans.

It’s Official — Biden Is (NOT) Running in 2024

Biden knows he is not running again, and so does everybody else around him. But…

Mark Alexander

So, Joe Biden dropped by “The Right Reverend” Al Sharpton’s National Action Network confab last weekend, and according to the high priest of black supremacy, Biden confided, “I’m going to do it again.”

It was not clear if that meant Biden was going to eat more ice cream or blame inflation on Vladimir Putin, but according to Sharpton, the Don of Demo hate and division, it’s official: Biden is running again! Despite the fact that Biden demonstrates daily that he is on a steep dementia slope, as long as he keeps sporting those cool Ray-Ban Aviator sunglasses, he can keep dodging that 25th Amendment chatter, and nobody will notice that in 2024 he will be 82.

When asked for confirmation, Biden’s spokes-parrot Karine Jean-Pierre confirmed: “The president has said this himself: He intends to run in 2024. I will just reiterate what the president has said many times … is that the president intends to.”

Apparently, his Leftmedia publicists are trying to get some clarification after his non compos mentis ramblings in a CBS “60 Minutes” interview last month when, responding to a question about 2024, Biden said: “It’s much too early to make that kind of decision. … My intention, as I said to begin with, is that I would run again. But it’s just an intention. But is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen.”

Seems perfectly clear to me!

Biden, who we now know is the first Puerto Rican president after disclosing, “I was sort of raised in the Puerto Rican community at home, politically,” is desperately trying to firm up both his black and brown constituent support. Not sure what the problem is; I mean, he has been a great president. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said so: “He has been a great president. He has accomplished — we’ve been working together to accomplish so much, and that is beginning to have some appreciation in the public in terms of his leadership.”

Insiders tell me that Sharpton cut a deal with Biden to deliver 95% of black voters in 2024 if Biden will replace Jean-Pierre after the midterm election with Sharpton’s equally qualified disciple, Tawana Brawley, in order to help Brawley repay court-ordered fines stemming from the racist rape hoax Sharpton perpetuated 35 years ago. Additionally, we hear that Sharpton also convinced Biden to appoint Juicy Smooyay as his new chief adviser on race relations.

OK, reality check. As I have unequivocally declared previously, Biden is NOT going to run in 2024.

He knows he is not running again, and so does everybody else around him — with the exception of his most sycophantic handlers who are in denial because their only claim to power is riding on his coattails. Clearly, Biden can’t withdraw from a second campaign until early 2024 ahead of the Demo primary. He has to avoid being a lame duck president now in order to retain whatever constituency he has left so he can pitch them to golden hair-gel boy Gavin Newsom or some other successor as part of their “collective constituency” strategy. As you recall, that strategy involves fielding a lot of candidates to raise a lot of money, and then folding each candidate’s constituents into an amalgam of general-election voters. Most important of all those constituent groups is women, who Demo strategists dependably assume are emotionally incontinent idiots.

Of course, another reason Biden pretends to be running is to bait Donald Trump into announcing a rematch — and he sure would like Trump to do that ahead of the midterm election in five weeks. Notably, in 2024, Trump would enter that race older than Ronald Reagan was when he left office.

The wild card is, what if Biden becomes terminably incapacitated or does not return from his perpetual vacations, and Kamala Harris takes over?

Finally, as for the upcoming midterms, Biden’s former spokes-parrot Jen Psaki says: “If it is a referendum on the president, [Democrats] will lose. And they know that.” But as I have argued, most of the “Bad News Biden” liability has already been discounted in electoral sentiments. As political analyst Byron York notes: “If history is any guide, Democrats do not have a chance — not even a small a chance — of keeping control of the House in the midterm elections. But the question is: Is history any guide?”

Given the bizarre politics of the last six years, and the success of the Demos’ massive bulk-mail ballot fraud strategy in 2020, it is not clear that the historic midterm crystal ball presumptions will hold. But for the sake of our country, I sure hope they do!

Stacey Abrams Loses Again

The grievance industry operative’s voter suppression bugaboo is rejected by a federal judge.

Emmy Griffin

Failed gubernatorial candidate (and current gubernatorial candidate) Stacey Abrams has claimed since 2018 that she really won her initial race. She claimed that the only reason she didn’t actually win was voter “suppression” laws in the state of Georgia. She was so adamantly invested in this narrative that she started a group called Fair Fight Action in order to champion her cause and continue to gripe about her lost election.

It was much to her chagrin that her complaints were smartly swatted down by a federal court judge last Friday. Through her group, she attempted to prove that Georgia’s “Jim Crow 2.0” voting laws were racist and that they suppressed votes. Federal Judge Steve Jones, who has been hearing this case since 2018, said, “Although Georgia’s election system is not perfect the challenged practices violate neither the Constitution nor the [Voting Rights Act].”

Judge Jones is an Obama appointee and black, in case one might be tempted to think that this was a white conservative jurist weighing in. Jones did what should be expected of any federal judge: He applied the Constitution and other federal laws to see if Georgia had indeed broken any of them. In a neat 288-page decision, he concisely outlined why Abrams’s claims were false.

The greatest thrust of her claim rested on the notion that Georgia’s “exact match” policy was a form of voter suppression. Her group presented seven plaintiffs. According to the editors of National Review, “Of the seven voters the plaintiffs presented who had trouble at polling places, six of them still got to vote.” The only reason the seventh one was unable to vote was due to a time constraint issued by the individual’s nursing home facility; the plaintiff was unable to sort out the misunderstanding as a result.

As far as the claim of racism goes, Judge Jones said no. Just because 69% of the voters who were flagged as a mismatch in voting information were black did not actually prevent them from voting. National Review reports that Jones “quotes the Supreme Court for the proposition that a ‘policy that appears to work for 98 percent or more of voters to whom it applies — minority and non-minority alike — is unlikely to render a system unequally open.’”

As an overall criticism of Stacey Abrams as a politician, this court loss is undeniable. Abrams is a classic example of someone who gets so wrapped up in her political narratives that reality doesn’t matter. She has proven that again and again beginning with her claims in 2018 that she really won the election.

Another narrative that she pushed was mandated masking for school children to protect them from COVID-19. And yet, when she went to read to elementary school children for Black History Month, she took off her mask for a photo op and her hypocrisy went viral. She first called it a “false political attack,” “pathetic,” and “silly” — because when you’re a woke Democrat, you have to double down on your narrative. But she later apologized for her poor judgment.

Most recently, Abrams weighed in on the abortion narrative. “There is no such thing as a heartbeat at six weeks,” she said. “It is a manufactured sound designed to convince people that men have the right to take control of a woman’s body.” She combined two leftist talking points into one — that babies in the womb are not human or valuable until they are wanted, and that women are routinely oppressed and duped by men. Besides being patently false, Abrams’s grasp of the science of sonograms leaves something to be desired. Did she back down from this insane statement? No.

Each time Abrams makes one of these political missteps that make her even more unpopular, the mainstream media comes to her rescue and defends her. This white knight syndrome has created a false sense of security for Democrat “rising stars” who believe they don’t have to be held accountable for their words, actions, or hypocrisy. That is why, come election time, they are in a world of hurt (see also Beto O’Rourke).

Abrams shows no signs of backing down from her chosen narrative of racism and voter suppression. After the resounding loss in court, she said: “Over the past four years, Fair Fight and its allies have exposed a deeply flawed and problematic system. As the judge says in his first sentence, ‘This is a voting rights case that resulted in wins and losses for all parties.’ However, the battle for voter empowerment over voter suppression persists, and the cause of voter access endures. I will not stop fighting to ensure every vote can be cast, every ballot is counted and every voice is heard.”

The narrative, regardless of how fallacious, is the point — but hers may prove to be too transparently false for voters.

Trump Sues CNN for $475 Million

It’s notoriously difficult for a public figure to win a defamation suit, even when he’s right about the damage.

Douglas Andrews

In case you missed it, Donald Trump is suing CNN for $475 million. And while we love a good lawsuit against the corrupt mainstream media, we also know that Trump’s chances of cashing in are next to zero.

We wish it weren’t so, because the Leftmedia can always use a good clock-cleaning, but the fact is that plaintiffs rarely ever win these cases.

“A lawsuit was filed today against CNN,” said Trump in a statement, “the once prestigious news channel that has devolved into a purveyor of disinformation, defamation, and Fake News, at a level which the American Public, and indeed the World, will not even believe is possible. For years I have watched this take place, often in disbelief, but the time has finally come to hold CNN responsible and legally accountable for their willful deception and defamatory statements made about me and both, directly and indirectly, my strong, devoted, and patriotic supporters — People who love the United States of America, but have been treated very unfairly, at so many levels. ‘The Big Lie’ that they constantly refer to is actually ‘The Big Lie’ in reverse. They know that, and it will be proven in Court!”

Sounds great. But, like we said, he has no chance. Here’s Washington Post media critic Eric Wemple, who, in the aftermath of Sarah Palin’s unsuccessful — but far more compelling — lawsuit against The New York Times, wrote about the extreme unlikelihood of success when a public figure sues a news organization: “Celebrities and political luminaries determined to sue the media for some outrage should have a chat with Sarah Palin. She might just tell them: It’s a slog.”

As Wemple reported, Palin had been suing the Times for three years over its June 2017 editorial, “America’s Lethal Politics.” Her obstacle as a public official was the landmark 1964 New York Times v. Sullivan case, which required that she prove “that a media outlet published information that they knew to be false, or with ‘reckless disregard’ to its truth.”

The Times certainly seemed to be reckless in this case, essentially accusing her of having incited a mass murder:

Was this attack evidence of how vicious American politics has become? Probably. In 2011, when Jared Lee Loughner opened fire in a supermarket parking lot, grievously wounding Representative Gabby Giffords and killing six people, including a 9-year-old girl, the link to political incitement was clear. Before the shooting, Sarah Palin’s political action committee circulated a map of targeted electoral districts that put Ms. Giffords and 19 other Democrats under stylized cross hairs.

Under fire from eagle-eyed bloggers, the Times later revised the passage to note that “no connection to the shooting was ever established” and that the original editorial had improperly described the map circulated by Palin’s PAC. All that would seem to have been a clear-cut admission of initial recklessness.

No dice. U.S. District Judge Jed Rakoff said Palin’s lawyers failed to provide evidence for “actual malice,” then dismissed the complaint. And that was that.

Trump doesn’t seem to have anything as substantive as Palin’s complaint in his corner. Sure, CNN and others continually denied Trump’s claims that the 2020 election was stolen — a claim that, we believe, becomes ever stronger with the passage of time and the revelations of bulk-mail ballot fraud, the Left’s takeover of the electoral administration process in key urban areas of swing states, and Big Tech’s collusion with the FBI to suppress the New York Post’s pre-election bombshell about the Biden Crime Family — but all that seems something short of intentional malice and reckless disregard for the truth.

Yes, CNN called Trump’s claim of a stolen election “The Big Lie” in a reference to Hitler, but he’s not the first Republican president to have been smeared as such. And unless there’s a smoking gun we’re not aware of — unless there’s some discovery of internal communications wherein CNN admits to knowing the truth while maliciously printing a falsehood — we think this will be a heavy lift for Trump.

We also think that Trump knows all this and that the real purpose of this lawsuit and its timing — just ahead of the midterms, right amid a wave of positive coverage for Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’s excellent handling of Hurricane Ian — is to make clear that he’s still in the fight, still the leader of the Republican Party, and still going toe to toe with the Fake News Media, which he’s correctly called “the enemy of the American people.”

Indeed, he said as much in his statement: “In the coming weeks and months we will also be filing lawsuits against a large number of other Fake News Media Companies for their lies, defamation, and wrongdoing, including as it pertains to ‘The Big Lie,’ that they used so often in reference to their disinformation attack on the Presidential Election of 2020.”

So other news organizations are also on notice, not just woebegone CNN. And if these shots across their bows by Trump ultimately amount to nothing more than a nuisance, we’d say it’s time and energy well spent — especially if it works these media “refs” to call things even a little more fairly going forward.

Insight

“Most outcomes of modern education are uneducated men. Our education is uneducation; its whole tendency is to unteach people the traditions of their fathers.” —G. K. Chesterton (1874-1936)

Political Futures

“The [Herschel] Walker news will leave a lot of Republicans depressed, and it should leave them depressed. In this kind of political environment, with Biden’s approval rating being lousy in just about all of the key states, a bunch of nice, boring, generic Republicans would likely be enjoying solid leads over Raphael Warnock, Mark Kelly, Maggie Hassan, and maybe even John Fetterman. All Republicans needed to do to win big this midterm cycle was to be normal. Apparently, that was too much to ask.” —Jim Geraghty

“If Trump’s only kingmaker skill is crowning primary winners who lose general elections, how much longer will Republicans continue to pretend that he’s vital to their party?” —Noam Blum

“Reminder that Raphael Warnock’s wife accused him of repeated domestic abuse and he’s currently trying to have a court seal his child custody proceedings during which he allegedly spent campaign money on his legal fees. The Georgia senate race is now between one man with a very sketchy personal life and a history of domestic abuse vs. another man with a sketchy personal life who won’t vote for $9 gas, open borders, and unlimited abortion. Make your choice, Georgia. ‘But Herschel Walker was a bad candidate.’ Okay, but the bottom line is he is still the Republican nominee and that is not changing. There are only two choices, both of them have flawed personal lives, but one will give Chuck Schumer two more years with control of the senate.” —Greg Price

For the Record

“The difference between President Trump and Joe Biden was 43,000 votes. If half of those people, 21,500, had voted for President Trump instead of Biden, President Trump would still be in the White House. … So that election was decided by 21,500 votes — in the backdrop of a story [Hunter’s laptop] that is the most suppressed story in the history of a U.S. presidential election. … You can call it rigged. You can call it stolen. You could call it suppressed. The American people can call it whatever they want. But the fact pattern is the FBI alone altered history in that election.” —former Hunter Biden business partner Tony Bobulinski

“The FBI, whose job it is to enforce federal law, did take a lengthy statement from Tony Bobulinski back in 2020 and during that conversation, he outlined several felonies the Bidens had committed and he would know because he saw it and then he provided extensive documentation to prove that it happened. The agents he spoke to seemed shocked and they promised to get back to Bobulinski for a follow-up interview, but they never did. In fact, the FBI never called Tony Bobulinski again. No one was ever indicted for these crimes. The investigation into them was squelched. To this day, the FBI continues to suppress evidence, proof that the most powerful family in the country has committed crimes against the United States. That is the definition of corruption. It’s unacceptable. If the United States is going to continue as a democratic republic, we can’t have this. It cannot go on.” —Tucker Carlson

“What is a fascist really? The Left says it is anyone who opposes what they want to do to expand government. But the real definition of a fascist is a leader who wants to exploit governmental power to suppress the basic liberties of individuals. It is the partnership of government and private industry for political power and monetary gain. To find it in modern-day America, the folks at the White House may want to look in the mirror.” —Stephen Moore
