  1. The Biden Troubles Where to start? (For later readers, this thread was started 8 days before the 2020 Election.) There are several threads all over OL dealing with this idea or that (election, Deep State, social media, etc.), but the news about the Bidens gets scattered among them. This Biden topic is about way more than just election news. This is the tip of the iceberg in probably one of the biggest scandals in American History. (Heh. And I thought that dishonor belonged to Hillary Clinton and the Deep State. At least they are caught up in this Biden mess enough to not walk away Scott free.) So far with the Bidens, we have two major areas of scandal unfolding. Here's a summary. Scandal No. 1: Joe Biden selling himself and his office. This boils down to Joe running a shakedown operation for years and/or accepting bribes, even while he was Vice President under President Obama. It mostly worked like the following, and for the sake of simplicity, this is the VP version. Joe Biden has done this all his life whenever he has had political power, so it will look different for different times and situations in his life, but the underlying process will be the same. 1. Joe will take on the responsibility of becoming the point man to resolve an important issue. 2. He will establish contact with the people who are causing the problem. There will be a family member along with him. 3. He will negotiate with those who have the problem, then after some time passes, he was "fail." They will lose. The problem was too complicated, the people were too intransigent, certain conditions were not met, etc. etc. etc., but he will indicate to them that the problem-handling is not over and there is still hope for a better day. 4. The family member, who will have disappeared by now, will suddenly have a sweetheart deal from the people who caused the problem and won. 5. That family member will make sure Joe gets his money and he will make sure the money is distributed correctly to the partners and other family members through different schemes. As VP, here are just three issues Biden "failed" at in this manner. -- VP Joe went to Iraq to negotiate a Status of Forces agreement, meaning US troops could stay there. Oops. He failed. Jim Biden (Joe's brother) soon got a 1.5 billion dollar housing redevelopment contract in Iraq. -- VP Joe went to China to get the Chinese Communist Party to settle disputes re the South China Sea and to get lower tariffs. Oops. Another fail by Joe. China built island military bases in the South China Sea (as The Philippines and other island countries went "Gulp"), and raised tariffs. Joe's son, Hunter, and his pals suddenly got a huge amount of business from Chinese companies linked to the CPP--millions and billions of dollars of business. -- VP Joe went to the Ukraine to help tackle the rampant corruption there in order to make the country more palatable for international investors. Oops. Joe failed again. The oligarchs there (one big one in particular) got off Scott free. Even the people investigating them stopped investigating them. (It's complicated, I know. Right? Poor Joe. ). Then Joe's son, Hunter, gets placed on the board of the energy company Burisma, with millions of dollars flowing around all over the place for Hunter, his pals, and other fellow travelers, and wouldn't you know it? Burisma is owned by one of the corrupt oligarchs. It looks like the people involved in helping set up these deals and cover them up go all the way up to President Obama. I have little doubt corroboration is coming along with a reckoning. A big honking ugly reckoning. Scandal No. 2: Hunter Biden. Joe's son, Hunter, is a mess. He's addicted to crack cocaine and likes taking explicit sex pictures and videos of himself. It looks like he has been engaged in some pedophilia and incest while he's at it. (Did his parents know and did they cover it up? That's a big deal if so.) All of this is mostly tabloid stuff, but the real issue is that Hunter is careless about leaving tracks all over the damn place. For example, he left his laptop at a repair shop and simply didn't go pick it up. Then it became the property of the shop owner. In other words, whatever is coming out now in the alt news and (against its will) the mainstream news is already in the hands of the Chinese Communist Party, the secret services of different foreign governments, the Deep State right here in the USA, and God knows where else. Does anyone think Hunter Biden, and by extension, Joe Biden can be compromised to do the bidding of powers hostile to the USA? How about if Joe Biden is President? How does that sound? How far would he go to protect his son? On the personal side, Hunter's father put him in contact with some nasty dangerous world players. Hunter has to be wondering when he will get knocked off or kidnapped. He has to. (Thanks, dad...) And that's not good in a person with crack addiction. He becomes totally unpredictable. Also, there are a lot of pro-Trump people who think exploiting the Hunter Biden debauchery material is distasteful, etc. etc. etc., and it distracts from the bribery, money laundering and other crimes. I believe it does not. The public can certainly gossip about more than one thing at a time. I've seen it with my own two innocent eyes. On the positive side, I think this gross material provides a sunlit open window for the public to see how the ruling class acts and how vulnerable many of them are. These elitists, these rich and powerful ruling class people--and their families--do things that affect you and me in our daily lives. Saying they are perverted and vulnerable is not nearly as persuasive as showing it. If President Trump gets reelected (he will ) and goes on to take down a huge number of these horrible people, it is much better that the public have an image of what is going on so they believe it, rather than just words that can be twisted by massive fake news campaigns to fit narratives. So be warned that there will be some raunchy stuff on this thread. But I want to make it clear that this raunchy stuff will be accessed through links, not shown directly in the thread. If anyone posts explicit sex pictures on OL, I will take them down. I will try to dig up some pertinent posts already on OL and repost them in this thread (or at least link to them with commentary) just so people interested in this topic don't have to search all over the place. Also, as new disclosures come out, I will put them here as I become aware of them. Please feel free to add new material. I can't guarantee the information here will be in any kind of order, but at least skimming through one thread is easier than looking all over the place. I have mixed feelings about doing this thread. I'm glad to help take down bad guys. But I'm sad this is happening here in the USA. I'm amused at times. But, also, more than anything else, I'm pissed. Like with any toxic problem, we either clean it up or die from it. So, let's live. Time to raise the old shirtsleeves and dig in. Michael
  2. Rudy against Obama and the Deep State Introduction Rush Limbaugh said recently (several times) that the main reason people have not been indicted and jailed under the Attorney General Barr's investigations so far--including the part being run by John Durham--is that he is taking a shot at the whole damn machine. This means he does not want a fall guy. Nor does he want to run into the brick wall of corruption at the highest echelons of the Deep State. So President Trump is letting the investigations run in a manner where all the details are being locked down tight before actions start. In this fight, you only get one shot to unleash a big law enforcement raid. If the premises and investigations are not perfect, it will be shot full of holes, the entire case will disintegrate and those who took the shot will be persecuted in all manners possible. Think mob reprisals. (I embellished this a bit, like with the comment about mob reprisals, so this is not all Rush. ) Enter Rudy So what does this have to do with Rudy? When the impeachment by the House started to congeal, a branch of this approach fell right off into President Trump's lap. His lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, stumbled across an enormous amount of corruption in the Ukraine that implicated the Bidens, the Obama administration and beyond. Rudy did not go to the Ukraine seeking this. Back when he started, Biden was not running in the primaries and Rudy never even thought he would. Rudy was seeking general information and there was a lot of heat by the Democrats with the Ukraine being repeatedly mentioned. So he looked into it. What he found took his breath away. It goes way beyond the Hunter Biden scandal with Burisma. Thus, Rudy did what Rudy does. He started compiling evidence, taping interviews, and so on. After all, Rudy took down some really nasty mob folks, so he has a lethal case-making system that works. In the last few months, there has been an enormous press campaign to taint Rudy as corrupt, as a Trump toady working to illegally help with Trump's 2020 election by digging up dirt on Biden, as stupid, and so on. Common Sense Rudy decided to make a podcast, called "Common Sense" (named in honor of Thomas Paine's book), where he could present evidence he has found that has been suppressed from the public eye by the fake news media, by politicians, and by establishment legal celebrities. This podcast started before the Senate acquittal of President Trump so the first video is a bit different that the rest. After that, Rudy decided to make a prosecutorial case to the public as if he were making a case to a court. He is starting with Joe Biden and Hunter Biden for bribery, extortion, and (probably) money laundering. Definitely corruption. But he is extending this to include lots of high-level people and he has announced that he will eventually get to the Obama Administration per se. I never realized what a great lawyer Rudy is. As this podcast is aimed at the general public, he uses simple language and explains things as he goes along (but citing laws and so on when relevant). By the time this stuff goes to court, the public will understand the issues despite all the foreign sounding names and criminal enterprise complexities. There are five episodes as of this posting, varying between a half an hour to an hour each. I saw the first podcast earlier today. I was so impressed, I stopped everything and watched all five of them back to back. Let's Witness History Together There is no doubt I am seeing major history unfold in real time, knowing this will be an event to mark this century. Rudy says this scandal will end up making the Teapot Dome scandal of the early 1920s look unimportant by comparison. I believe him. I have no doubt Rudy's series of videos will be included in Barr's investigations and will be studied in law classes at universities from the time the scandal subsides to forever. I am posting the first five videos below. I will be adding each new one as it comes out. I want you to see them as much as I want to see them. And I want us to see them as they happen. But first, here is Rudy's site: Rudy Giuliani. The Videos Now to the videos. I do hope you enjoy them with me. What a great time to be alive.
