Giuliani turned over to NY Post the contents of a laptop. The alleged emails have never been authenticated, and the NY Times revealed that the NY Post’s lead reporter refused to put his name on an article he wrote. Wash Post reported that T’s own national security adviser told him that any information G brought from Ukraine should be considered contaminated by Russia. Intelligence officers warned that the emails have all the classic earmarks of a Russian information operation. John Ratcliffe, denies that the laptop is part of a Russian operation, but he has poor credibility.

Then the right-wing scandal merchants start employing the supposed Hunter Biden emails to malign his father.

The NY Post first claimed that Biden had met with Burisma.  Unproved by the documents in the paper’s possession, and one that spokesmen for both Hunter & Biden deny. Even if true, this wouldn’t be wrong, because the vice president didn’t do anything to help the Ukrainian energy company. Biden did pressure Ukraine to fire a corrupt prosecutor, but the prosecutor wasn’t investigating Burisma.

The 2nd non-scandal is the claim that Biden was part of a 2017 deal with Hunter involving a Chinese oil company. Even if true, this also wouldn’t be wrong, because Biden was then a private citizen. But it’s not true. The Wall Street Journal reports that the venture never received proposed funds from the Chinese company or completed any deals and that corporate records - show no role for Biden. So this was a deal that never occurred and that Biden wasn’t involved in.

Quite the scandal.

Simple solution.  Hunter just deny they are your emails.  

Photo of Biden with Burisma head was on they web.  Joe asked to have taken down.  I don't have time to find.

Check this fivethirtyeight poll.  Nate Silver is a Dem.

Check out the grow in Black and Hispanic group under 44 years old.  Huge swing to Trump.  Why is Obamer trying to save Joe.

Even with that shift, 80% of younger blacks are still voting Biden; as are 65% of younger Hispanics.    That's NOT good news for Trump, particularly considering these demographics didn't turn-out en masse 4 years ago.  And that's on top of (as the link you posted stated) Trump is losing the white vote.     

And you think this is a good sign for Trump?

Yep.  That's why state polls are just as important as national ones, even more so.

T makes accusations of corruption in last Debate. Before T coming to the WH he lived in penthouse apartment and flew his own plane. He accused Biden, who spent years commuting on Amtrak, of having houses all over the place. On a call with campaign staff, T said Biden should be in jail because he’s a criminal. Sound similar to 4 years ago. Right-wing rumormongers start spreading even more vile accusations against Hunter that are straight out of QAnon. Then, T Jr. claimed to Fox News that Hunter is linked to “human trafficking & prostitution rings, with no evidence. The scandal is not anything that Biden did. It is that T is running the sleaziest presidential campaign, while unable to explain his health care policies and not showing his taxes. Yes, flinging accusations far from reality.

Anyone remember when the Republican Party was known as the Party of Ideas. 1980s, since the party of pseudo-scandals.

Burning Down the House --- because of efforts by R Newt Gingrich to bring down House Speaker Jim Wright in the late 1980s. Gingrich claimed that Wright was the most corrupt speaker in the 20th century, comparing him to Mussolini. In short, Wright resigned, Gingrich soon became speaker himself, and the GOP was off to pseudo-scandals.

Since then, the R Party came into cahoots with media Fox News and Rush Limbaugh in manufacturing one pseudo-scandal after another: Vince Foster’s suicide, Whitewater, Mena airport, John Kerry’s Swift Boat service, Barack Obama’s birth certificate, the Clinton Foundation and Hillary Clinton’s emails, among others.

The process has been turbocharged under T who is even more ruthless. He won the 2016 election by defaming a former secretary of state as Crooked Hillary.  Demanded that she be locked up for unspecified offenses. Now he is running the same playbook on Joe Biden.

T got impeached by trying to blackmail Ukrainian officials into accusing Biden & Hunter of wrongdoing. That didn’t stop T’s attorney, Giuliani, from working with shady Ukrainian contacts, including a lawmaker described as a Russian agent by T’s own Treasury Department, to produce dirt on Biden. Until recently, this had resulted of interest only to One America News Network.

Donald didn't beat Hillary by defaming her. She did that all on her own. For all the "Donald was unqualified to be President" takes we got as a result of 2016, we didn't get nearly enough "Thank God we kept that entitled and borderline retarded woman out of office" takes.

Tell me about hospitalizations and deaths per capita.

White House signals defeat in pandemic as coronavirus outbreak roils Pence’s office

With the election a little over a week away, the new White House outbreak spotlighted the administration’s failure to contain the pandemic as hospitalizations surge across much of the United States and daily new cases hit all-time highs.

“This wasn’t a slip by Meadows; it was a candid acknowledgment of what President Trump’s strategy has clearly been from the beginning of this crisis: to wave the white flag of defeat and hope that by ignoring it, the virus would simply go away,” Biden said in a statement. “It hasn’t, and it won’t.”

Obama, Biden and spying

After Stahl asked Trump if he wants to lock up former President Barack Obama, Trump said in the extended footage, "No, I don't wanna lock him up, but he spied on my campaign. Obama and Biden spied on my campaign."

Facts First: This is baseless. There is no evidence Biden or Obama had any personal role in ordering the FBI surveillance of Trump's campaign, which came as part of its investigation of the campaign's relationship with Russia.

Cratters Fact Check of the Fact Check:

Misleading fact check. While there is not evidence of Obama or Biden's personal relationship with the spying on the Trump campaign. We do know that the FBI under the Obama\Biden administration indeed did spy on the Trump campaign.

Oh yeah and now the current Director of National Intelligence is a compromised Russian Operative and shouldn't be trusted!

The only discrepancy is that Trump still falsely blames Obama.  Nowhere in that 9 second video is Obama/Biden even mentioned.  


Trump has often said that Obama had a hand in the FBI's investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election. The FBI operation, called Crossfire Hurricane, targeted four men within the Trump campaign orbit, including campaign manager Paul Manafort and national security adviser Michael Flynn.

That FBI investigation itself has been the subject of investigations by the Justice Department and Congress.

Not one found that Obama initiated or meddled in the FBI's work. Not one concluded that the FBI lacked good reason to launch the investigation.

Kind of Interesting that Putin speaks out.

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Sunday that he saw nothing criminal in Hunter Biden’s past business ties with Ukraine or Russia, marking out his disagreement with one of Donald Trump’s attack lines in the U.S. presidential election.
