There is this article about emails form Hunter Biden's laptop finally reported by a "reputable" news source (WSJ) - after Facebook and Twitter banned any link to this article originally from the New York Post...Hmm...Censorship anyone??

https://www.wsj.com/articles/collusi...b-2447cab785f9

Breaking news: CSPAN has indefinitely suspended the moderator of the cancelled 2nd debate, Steve Scully, for lying to them about his Twitter being hacked when he sought advice from Scaramucci about how to handle Trump in the debate.

Not a great week for Joe!
Sure Steve Scully is suspended but how is that not great for Joe?

Trump is still claiming the US has turned the corner in the pandemic but all the statistics shows it is getting worse; rising new cases and hospitalizations. Death numbers are stable probably due to improved medical case handling.

Honestly Marton...I sill cannot fathom how these two: Trump/Biden are the best that the US can offer! Both have multiple issues cognitively in my view.

My point was, that Biden's son, Hunter, will come under more scrutiny as will Biden. It is pretty clear that Hunter used his Dad's position to his own advantage regarding the Ukraine/Barisma and China and Biden knew this (even though he denied this!). Not good!

Apparently, there are more skeletons in the closet re: Hunter but they have yet to have been substantiated.

My other point was Twitter and Facebook's censorship of articles regarding Hunter's emails and the NY Post article. Not good on all levels...

What does Hunter Biden (and what Hunter Biden did or didn't do) have to do with whether or not Biden would be a good President?

That‘s politics.....never the best, because who would want that job?

But the thing with the Hunter Biden story is that it is so convenient and it‘s sat around for a year and came to light via Guiliani Just at the right time. Maybe it will be true or parts thereof....or maybe it‘s another fabrication like obamagate. Who knows?

These are the candidates, like it or not.

And the Hunter Biden thing ... I mean whatever comes up there, I trust that US voters will see a lot of ads by Project Lincoln and/or paid for by Bloomberg on Ivanka, Jared, Uday* and Qusay*.

* for those not watching Bill Maher - that is Eric and Don Junior

Well, let's start with the fact that Biden DENIED any knowledge of Hunter's business dealings. And so he lied, and so does Trump and so did Clinton ...and the SWAMP remains... Sorry! I forgot to add Obama here to the mix.

It doesn't give Americans much choice - does it?

Again... what a mess the US finds itself in! Really BAD choices regarding both candidates. Beyond sad! I don't know more what to say...

Agree about the timing...too convenient! But I have read too much about little Hunter from a variety of sources. Barisma/China...not good and Joe definitely knew about this in my view - despite his denials.

The GOP Senate led investigation report delivered on Sept. 23 into the Biden's failed to come up any evidence of wrongdoing and also nothing about this (claimed to be) year old story. They also failed to find any evidence linking Hunter with China and also found no evidence that Hunter was involved in any Ukrainian corruption.
Considering they had access to tons of secret US documents there was probably nothing to find.

The claim is that Hunter Biden introduced his father, then-Vice President Joe Biden, to a top executive at a Ukrainian energy company. There is no evidence that Joe was informed of Hunter's business dealings.

It is amusing that the same people who claim the media publishes fake news without checking the content suddenly start clutching their pearls when twitter and facebook block spreading news that was both not checked and apparently stolen from a computer.

Is this Hunter Biden argument all about whether Joe Biden KNEW about his 50-year old son's business dealings? Not about whether Joe himself was involved in any illegal or murky business, but about whether he KNEW about his son's? If we're going to criticize a candidate based on his kids behaviour, we should ALSO compare it with Trump's own sons and daughter, who admitted to funneling charity money to Trump's campaign? It's not an alleged misbehaviour but an admitted one.

By the way, if the behaviour that Hunter Biden is being accused of is using his father's name as a business leverage, we can have the exact same discussion regarding Trump's son-in-law and his sister doing exactly the same, pushing EB-5 Visas in exchange for investments into their developments.

The election is not about the candidates' family members, but about themselves. Unless we're talking about nepotism, which then again...

I've found it very surprising that Bidens team have not run a few info ads on the next generation of trumps, or if they have, that I've not seen them spoken of as loudly as this Hunter shenanigans.
Surely it's more valid a criticism of Trump due to the far more obvious nepotism involved. Are the Dems too afraid to fight in the dirt?

News organizations have not been able to authenticate the emails published by the Post as of Thursday night.
The Washington Post reported Thursday evening that U.S. intelligence officials warned Trump that Giuliani was the target of an influence campaign conducted by Russian intelligence.

I don't think it's that they're afraid of "fighting in the dirt" but more that they just don't want to stoop to the low levels of dirty politics that the right has been doing. Also, I think most Dems realize that Trump is his own worst enemy. Dems don't really have to do much to convince (intelligent) people what kind of person or leader Trump is. That speaks for itself.

Trump's (and the right's) modus operandi is to blame-shift and project and "divide and conquer." Keep the spotlight of off Trump's own lies and wrong-doings and keep his supporters full of hatred for the left and caring about stupid shit like what Biden's son once may have done, which has very little to do with Biden himself, despite the right's desperate attempts to make it appear as such.

The way I see it -- this election isn't simply about right or left. It's about whether or not America wants Trump as their leader for the next four years and whether or not they want a repeat of the shit show that the last four years have been. People are fed up. They want change. Especially in the middle of the crises that the US is currently experiencing, they want (and need) a mature, intelligent, calm and rational leader, and that is something that Trump has repeatedly proven himself not to be. I know of quite a few Republicans who are refusing to vote for Trump again because he (admittedly) lied about the threat of the virus. And now with 200,000+ (and growing) deaths later, he refuses to apologize for it. I don't know why any sane, rational human being would want a President who clearly demonstrates a lack of conscience.

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

I think many Americans no longer see this as Trump vs Biden. I believe many now see this as the U.S vs Venezualia style socialism. They have a few good reasons to fear that. L.A, San Fran, Portland, and OMG, Seattle. Take a real good look at Seattle. Hey, lets fight Trump by setting up a wall and controlling who goes in and out, yeah that will show him. Oh, lets fight racism by setting up P.O.C, Places Of Color, for "people of color" instead of the old racist "colored people". So the answer to racism is now SEGREGATION? Really? I think I said this before but antifa and blm will be the hill the dems die on. They do need a purge and rebirth.



Second point. The SCJ nominee may have helped Trump gain a few suburban white women votes, as the experts say who he is targeting. No, no, no senior. No. Homey just took the entire Latino voting block who normally votes Democrat, even though they are mostly Catholic conservatives. My Latino friends are not happy with the constant attack on religion by the left, and many are watching what's happening to the Jewish people in NYC. As well as all the hokey pokey going on regarding mail-in ballots in certain districts, namely those belonging to certain anti-American women of congress. Add in fake media whose own members are starting to crack like Wolf Blitzer. No one watches or even reads mainstream media nowadays. If you want a liberal perspective that's not afraid to call out the B.S including the media infiltration by the C.I.A posing as "experts" then check out the Jimmy Dore Show on YT. Speaking of YT and other media, thanks for pulling out the tongue of Q Anon. I never gave it much weight, but now I do.
Based on the number of Trump rallies popping up all over the most unlikely of places like L.A, I would say a red tsunami is coming in 2020, grab your boards and ride the wave. The Silent Majority is no longer silent and coming out in favor of Trump. The first real poll will happen when they see the ratings at the next town hall events, that will happen simultaneously.



Anyways, I think its about time for a serious third party for us independent moderates, who are now Nazis according to the left. The vacuum is there thanks to the left eating its own.



Dammed if we do, dammed if we dont.
