It takes a draft dodger!

 

BULLY BOY PRESS CEDRIC'S BIG MIX  -- THE KOOL AID TABLE 


JOE BIDEN WILL NOT USE THE MILITARY AS A PROP . . . IF YOU CALL HIM OUT FOR IT AND FOR SEVERAL DAYS HE GETS BAD PUBLICITY AS A RESULT.


THAT'S ALL IT TOOK FOR GENERAL SEAN MACFARLAND -- WELL, FIRST HE HAD TO COMPLAIN TO THE CAMPAIGN THAT THEN BLEW HIM OFF UNTIL THE PRESS KEPT REPORTING ON THE ISSUE.


REACHED FOR COMMENT, JOE BIDEN TOLD THESE REPORTERS, "I DENY IT.  MY SON HUNTER BOUGHT A FRESH DILDO TO GIVE TO THE STRIPPER TO USE ON HIM. DID I HANG UP YET?  HOW DO YOU HANG UP A CELL PHONE?  IS THIS THING STILL ON?  HELLO?  HELLO?"


FROM THE TCI WIRE:



This week's podcast by THE ECONOMIST looks at Joe Biden, his 2020 campaign for president ("Hidin' Biden") and at his history with the Iraq War.  Pay attention to the discussion of 'Democrats' who might defeat Republicans in the Senate -- like Lindsay Graham's opponent -- and how their success would only water down the Democrats in the Senate.  Republican-lite may beat a Republican (it may not) but it will infect and water down Democrats in the Senate.  That's a detail the cheerleaders for  Jaime Harrison ignore.  Also ignored are the Hunter Biden e-mails and the reaction to it.  Branko Marcoetik (JACOBIN) offers:


On Wednesday, the New York Post published a major story about the Biden-Burisma affair (aka “Ukrainegate”), the still-developing controversy over Hunter Biden’s presence on the board of Ukrainian natural gas company Burisma at the same time that his father, then vice president, spearheaded anti-corruption efforts in the country and ultimately fired the prosecutor investigating the company.

The Post published e-mails purportedly drawn from a copied computer hard drive that belonged to the younger Biden, allegedly showing a Burisma executive thanking him for introducing him to the then–vice president, and imploring Hunter to “use your influence to convey a message/signal etc. to stop what we consider to be politically motivated actions” -- meaning the “one or more pretrial proceedings” the Ukrainian government had launched against the company.

The contents of the hard drive, passed on to the Post by Trump ally Rudy Giuliani, are clearly an attempt at one final, desperate “October surprise.” Trump’s shot at reelection certainly looks to have all but collapsed after an unhinged debate performance that was soon followed by the mass spread of coronavirus within the White House. He’s in desperate need of something to turn around what seems to be shaping up -- at least as far as the polls can be trusted -- as a landslide defeat. 

While the e-mails, if authentic, are not great for Biden — they flatly contradict his implausibleSeptember 2019 claim that he has “never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings” --they’re far from a game changer.

They mostly back up what basic common sense and closed-door testimony from Obama administration officials already told us: that Burisma’s hiring of Hunter, with his zero experience in either Ukraine or natural gas, was an obvious attempt to curry favor with the US government, and that it undermined the Obama administration’s anti-corruption messaging in the country. In fact, they shed absolutely no light on Trump’s actual central and still unproven charge against Biden in the whole affair: that he fired the Ukrainian prosecutor to shield his son from prosecution.

No, in many ways the bigger story here is the response to the story. Because seemingly every major scandal damaging to Biden and, therefore, beneficial to Trump’s reelection has, during this election, been simply labeled Russian disinformation and ruled out of bounds --  from his sexual assault allegation to this matter -- social media companies quickly leapt into action to do what they could to make sure no one would get to even read the story and judge it for themselves.

Shortly after the Post story went live, both Facebook and Twitter -- two of the several tech giants that are now more integral to the news publishing business than ever -- announced they were stepping in to prevent the story from spreading on their platforms. Facebook, wrote spokesperson Andrew Stone, was “reducing its distribution on our platform” until it could be fact-checked, while Twitter simply blocked users from posting the story at all, citing its “Distribution of hacked material policy.”

This rush to censorship is equal parts absurd and chilling.


I find Branko's take very disappointing.  


But let's get to Rudy G.  I was hoping to write about this topic.  On THE ECONOMIST podcast, they talk about it "he somehow turned it over to Rudy" and that Rudy didn't turn it over to the FBI.  Blah blah blah.  The FBI already had it.  Second, somehow?


Rudy G is not a friend of mine -- I've never even bothered to learn how to spell his last name.  I don't care for him or for his trashy family (yes, his daughters are trashy).  I have numerous reasons.  Some would argue that one of the reasons is that Rudy and I are rivals.


From time to time, we are rivals.  From time to time, we are both offered the same information.  I prefer to purchase letters.  I was not offered the Biden hardriver nor would I have been interested in it, frankly.  But we have been opponents/rivals on other treasure troves of information.


How did Rudy G get the hard drive?  Because he's a well known consumer of information.  He pays very well for it.


I don't understand the skepticism of the information based on Rudy G.  The press knows he buys information.  He's far from the only one.  We don't generally bid on the same things -- again, my preference is letters and journals.  In 2007 and 2008, it was widely known that Rudy was buying up everything he could -- and it was widely assumed that he sat on most of the information he bought.


I don't doubt the e-mails because of the Rudy G connection -- in fact, that connection makes them more believable to me.


[Added: Before I'm accused of being coy, I buy other things.  I do own the 'dead grandmother tape' as it's known in DC social circles and I did play it at many a DC party.  That's the last recorded interview -- the only one -- dead grandmother gave about her grandson Barack.]


As for Branko's "they're far from a game changer"?  That's so disappointing.  The corporate press may cover for Joe but Branko shouldn't.  Branko should be sharing and leading the outrage.  Hunter made money off his father being a public servant.  He offered access to his father -- that his father participated in.  This is unethical and it's wrong.
