The 2020 Presidential race was on the precipice of being called on account of rain this week as the deluge of compromising info about Vice President Joe Biden and son Hunter were revealed, and would potentially sink the Biden-Harris campaign.
Evidence of Biden family secrets and scandals were uncovered on a laptop that Hunter Biden left at a Delaware repair shop — proof positive of the adage that once you put it out there, it stays forever.
On first glance, the laptop presents tangible proof that Joe Biden lied and has been lying all along regarding the millions of dollars that he and his family have lined their coffers with in exchange for selling out America to foreign powers.
If it were only as bad as what was reported in the first exposé of its contents, Biden’s candidacy could limber on to the finish line, but Chinese dissident sources describe a giant CCP blackmail scheme anchored to files in the laptop. October surprise, indeed.
When the repair shop owner came forward, the FBI obtained a grand jury subpoena to seize the laptop and the hard drive. Even though the subpoena was published by the New York Post, the FBI declined to comment.
The Post said the documents came from a damaged MacBook Pro belonging to Hunter Biden that had been dropped off at a Trump-supporting computer repairman in Biden’s Delaware home state.
The repairman, John Paul MacIsaac, 44, handed over the laptop to the FBI and also sent the contents to Rudy Giuliani, stating he was afraid he would be murdered as “a guy who had something he wanted out of this shop.”
The laptop is purported to have been left at the repair shop in April, 2019, and when left unclaimed after months, the owner accessed its private information and called the authorities. When he felt he was being ignored, he sent the evidence to Giuliani.
However, the owner could not verify whether it had been Hunter Biden who had left the laptop — with its Beau Biden Foundation sticker — at the shop.
Questions regarding how The Post gathered its information leave media pundits scratching their heads with Biden supporters asking if this is not all some planted Russian influence operation?
Meanwhile, The Post’s account spread faster than a California wildfire throughout political circles in Washington, D.C. and across the country.
However, on the grounds that the material was “hacked” — not actually the case as the owner was within his rights to open the laptop after it was abandoned — Twitter and Facebook mitigated the spread of the story on their platforms.
The links to the post were banned and people retweeting its contents were punished.
White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany, whose own Twitter account was briefly restricted after she tried to share the story, led accusations that social media companies were censoring stories critical of the Bidens.
Today, the Republican Party filed a complaint with the elections authority to probe the social media companies for in-kind donations to the Biden campaign. Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey apologized, or at least was regretful of the fallout, and said that banning the link was not the right response. On Tuesday, he will be given testimony in Washington as to what happened.
Months ago, QMN reported the “smoking gun” video where Joe Biden brazenly bragged about getting the Ukrainian prosecutor investigating his son’s company, Burisma, fired by threatening to withhold $1 billion of financial aid to Ukraine. That the SDNY had been in receipt of evidence from Ukraine, itself, about the saga since 2018 and had refused to move on it was also reported.
The Post published a series of stories highlighting “the smoking gun email” that suggests a meeting between Vice President Biden and a representative of a Ukrainian company that once paid Hunter Biden tens of thousands of dollars each month in a position for which he had no experience.
Emails made public also indicated Hunter had set up a meeting between his father and a Ukrainian executive at Burisma – the company Hunter had been working for at the time.
“The New York Post never asked the Biden campaign about the critical elements of this story,” said Biden campaign spokesman Andrew Bates. “They certainly never raised that Rudy Giuliani — whose discredited conspiracy theories and alliance with figures connected to Russian intelligence have been widely reported — claimed to have such materials.”
The Biden camp denied that the pivotal Ukraine meeting took place. George Mesires, attorney for Hunter Biden, said in a statement, “We have no idea where this came from, and certainly cannot credit anything that Rudy Giuliani provided to the New York Post, but what I do know for certain is that this purported meeting never happened.”
Later, the Biden campaign said the meeting was certainly not on Biden’s official agenda, but, when pressed, opened the door to the possibility a casual meeting may have happened.
Outside of Ukraine, leaked emails show that Hunter Biden had sought to secure deals with a now defunct Chinese energy company that would benefit his family. In discussing the deal with partners, he would be awarded 10% and there would be an additional 10% for the “big guy,” presumably his father.
His partner in the main investment holding at the heart of the deals is Chris Heinz, heir to the ketchup fortune and step-son of former Secretary of State John Kerry.
Giuliani’s lawyer Bob Costello said there are some 40,000 emails on the hard drive, thousands of texts, and images of Hunter “in very compromising positions.”
Also leaked in the first reports were personal letters and photos of Hunter Biden, including one where he looks passed out with a cigarette in a bath tub and, another, asleep in bed with a crack pipe in his mouth.
Where the saga took a turn to the tawdry was a video report by a Chinese dissident published three weeks ago and since subtitled that claimed there was far worse on the laptop.
The talk show host said his information was Chinese dissident businessmen Guo Wengui, who former White House Strategist and Breitbart publisher Steve Bannon had partnered with in news venture GTV Media, “the only uncensored and independent bridge between China and the Western World.” Guo’s sources could be within China or just Bannon, himself, who would have got the info from Giuliani. It could also all just be propaganda.
The information on the laptop, according to the Chinese dissident, beyond all the damning emails, show Hunter Biden engaged in heavy drug use, abusive sexual acts and pedophilia — and these videos were recorded by the Chinese Communist Party. The dissident described inhumane acts against Chinese people, which would imply the incidents all took place in China.
Money on the table for Hunter Biden included a $1 million immediate payment from a deal worth $10 million annually to him, as well as half of a larger $4.5 billion investment vehicle. He said the CCP had given Hunter a copy of all these files to let him know exactly the blackmail being held over his head, and they also sent the same data to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, so she would know what proof they could drop if ever displeased with her service.
Additionally, the hard drives supposedly include a list of all the U.S. Congressmen currently being bribed by China, according to this dissident, according to Guo. The data also includes proof of the “bio-weapon” — presumably, the Corona Virus starting a lab, though not specified — and blackmail material being held against billionaire former New York Mayor and brief Presidential hopeful Michael Bloomberg.
The CCP’s goal was to light the fire under the Democrats to win the 2020 election, he said. Why the material was not addressed right away by the FBI, the Chinese dissident said, was because a Biden ally took possession of it there and made it disappear.
Giuliani, who we know actually reviewed all the laptop’s contents, has only said that more information would soon be released, presumably, via The Post.
The immediate impact on the Biden presidential campaign would be that, never mind breaking the laws of enriching oneself from public office, the mere prospect of weaponized blackmail material against his family would disqualify him from gaining security clearance.
Although the other way to look at it, now that all the sordid information is to be released, all these secrets lose their blackmailing power.
U.S. President Donald J. Trump demanded that Biden release all emails related to his family’s business dealings with Russia and Ukraine. He said the family treated the vice presidency as a “for-profit” entity.
“Vice President Biden, you owe the American people an apology because … you are a corrupt politician,” President Trump said.
“Biden’s repeated claim that he has never spoken to Hunter about his business dealings were a complete lie,” he said, accusing the former VP of “trying to cover up a massive pay-for-play scandal at the heart of his vice presidency.”
“Now we can see clearly that Biden is a corrupt politician who shouldn’t be allowed to run for the presidency.”
During a 90-minute town hall on ABC Thursday, Biden was not asked a single question about his son’s alleged “sex and drugs” email scandal or about the broader business dealings. There were also no questions about Hunter Biden selling access to his father to Chinese companies.
Meanwhile, President Trump was being grilled by Savannah Guthrie during a simultaneous town hall conducted on NBC, where she insisted he disavow white nationalists, which he did and reminded her that he did when she asked him to four years ago, too.
But he would not disavow QAnon, which he claimed not to know anything about: “I know nothing about it. I do know they are very much against pedophilia, they fight it very hard.”
