A copy of Hunter Biden’s laptop computer turned up at the New York Post last week. Delivered by President Trump’s friend and lawyer Rudy Giuliani. How convenient.

And it turns out the FBI has possession of the actual computer.

There’s an email on the the computer from a Burisma adviser thanking Hunter for arranging a meeting with his father, who was vice president at the time. And another from a Chinese energy company pinpointing Joe Biden as the “Big Guy” demanding a 10% share .

Newly skeptical Democrats are calling it a Russian disinformation smear. But Hunter’s former partner Tony Bobulinski says otherwise.

 

Postal Service Dismantled to Sabotage our Democracy

President Trump is attempting to dismantle our Postal Service, out of a selfish desire to sabotage our democracy and maintain a grip on power.”

At least that’s how Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez sees it.

But no worries. Joe Biden promises, if elected, to order the military to evict the Orange Man from the White House.

Besides, we’ll always have email.

Cognitively Certified and Proud of it

Cognitively Certified, Joe Biden, Michael Flynn

President Trump is cognitively certified and bragging about it. Not only did he test negative for Covid-19, his brain tested positive on the Montreal Cognitive Assessment, or MoA.

As achievements go the test is a low bar. Passing it simply means you don’t have dementia. For now. But Trump seems to think Joe Biden couldn’t pole vault over the the bar and he’s trying to provoke him out of his basement to take the test.

Joe’s Cognitive abilities may serve him well. He said he didn’t know anything about the Michael Flynn investigation. But former FBI agent Peter Stzrok’s notes from a Jan 2017 meeting say Biden recommended prosecuting Flynn under the Logan Act.

Obama deputy AG Sally Yates says she doesn’t remember if Biden brought up the Logan act but she testified to the Senate Judiciary Committee that he didn’t influence the Flynn Investigation.

As far as I know she hasn’t been tested either.

Russian Bounty Hunters in Afghanistan

The last big bounty scandal in the news involved the New Orleans Saints. But there are no saints in this story. The NYT reported that Russian President Putin paid the Taliban to kill American soldiers. A WSJ editorial questioned the need for bounties, considering the Taliban already whacks Americans for the religious thrill of it. But considering Putin’s record killing journalists in his own country it sounds plausible.

And inquiring minds want to know what Trump did about it. Nothing. Though he did kill a couple hundred Russians in Syria in 2018, but that was before the story broke.

Or maybe 1980s are calling to get back their Stinger missiles that President Reagan gave to the Taliban to shoot down Russian helicopters.

Anyway, Catherine Herridge at CBS says the CIA and NSA are split on the bounty story, and the president claims he was never briefed.

Election Hopes and Conspiracy Theories

President Trump’s election hopes probably weren’t helped Saturday night. He spoke to a lot of empty seats at the BOK (Bank of Oklahoma) center in Tulsa.

Joe Biden’s having better luck in his basement. A New York Times / Sienna College Poll put’s him ahead of Trump by 14 points.

Peter Nicholas fantasizes in the Atlantic about life if Trump goes all “resistance” and refuses to accept the election results..

And Politico takes a deep dive into Trumpian conspiracy theories. The Steele Dossier pee tape didn’t make the cut.
