Hunter Biden under FBI investigation for money laundering

BLM: Bidens Laptop Matters

The allegations about Hunter Biden are all fake news, debunked before they were made, but the FBI says they have him under investigation for money laundering. And they’ve been investigating him all year, but forgot to mention that.

Department of Justice (DOJ) official confirmed Thursday that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) opened a criminal investigation into Hunter Biden and his associates in 2019, focused on allegations of money-laundering, and that it remains “open and active,” according to Sinclair investigative reporter James Rosen.

The FBI has admitted they have the laptop and they interviewed Tony Bobulinski on October 23 for five hours. Nothing to see here.

Hunter only matters because of what it might mean about about Joe.

Biden Bus runs red lights to escape a Trump fan in a Hearse called the Democrat Cemetary Vote Collector

When censorship is running strong, people find other ways to get out the message. This a new artform called #Roadtrolling as invented by a Trump fan in Houston. Apparently the Biden bus (which doesn’t have Joe Biden in it) has been seen running red lights to try to get away from the […]

Winning! Australian Govt writes laws to protect people like Peter Ridd at universities

The Australian government admits Peter Ridd should never have been sacked for criticizing standards of James Cook University

Peter Ridd is still fighting for his right to speak

Great News: In an era of absurd censorship, it’s good to get a win. Thanks to all those who wrote letters and emails, and obviously, thanks to the IPA, the government is insisting that Professors be allowed to decide what professors say, rather than Vice Chancellors. Soon, if fraud should occur at James Cook Uni, people will be able to suggest it gets investigated without getting fired for being “uncollegial.”

As Education Minister Dan Tehan told Sky News this morning:

“[James Cook University] wouldn’t have been able to prosecute Peter Ridd if these laws had of been in place.”

“By defining academic freedom in legislation, Education Minister Dan Tehan is ensuring the dismissal of an academic like Peter Ridd can never happen again,” said Mr Rozner.

— Institute of Public Affairs (IPA)

To recap Peter Ridds crimes: he said “for your amusement” in an email once. (Illegal satire). He said “ We can no longer rely on our science institutions.” He […]

Too good not to share: …. If they didn’t have double standards they’d have no standards at all.

Third world censorship in the USA: 1000% Joe Biden is “the Big Guy” in China CCP dealings

The media are concealing a Bigger-than-Watergate scandal about the “leading” presidential candidate a week before the election in the most powerful nation on Earth. How easy then is it for the same media to ignore thousands of independent scientists in an esoteric debate about radiative physics? If Biden is elected, he will have to be removed from office.

History unfolding: Tony Bobulinski is a democrat who served his country, who had tops secret clearance with the NSA and DOE.

Tucker Carlson:

“Never before in American history have more power centres combined to kill a legitimate news story …”

“Last night we experienced an extraordinary attempt to interfere with our reporting on the Biden family…”

Bobulinski went to the Biden camp in the last week, after they said this was Russian disinformation (calling Bobulinski a traitor effectively). He asked them to do the right thing. Their response (like concern trolls) was to warn him he’d have press trucks outside his house, he’d have to move, he could lose his job… “but basically” Rob Walker, the spouse of Jill Biden’s former top personal White House aide, told Tony Bobulinski “you’re just going to bury all of […]

Bargain! $2 billion in solar panels powers SA for whole hour on Sunday in Spring!

The ABC, Australian public broadcaster, is excited. For the first “phenomenal time” in the world — one state, South Australia, managed to produce enough solar power so that (in theory) the whole state was powered by solar electrons for one hour on a Sunday at midday in Spring. It was one of the lowest demand days of the year in one of the smallest markets in Australia. The ABC and AEMO don’t mention that it took about $2 billion in capital infrastructure to achieve this trivial feat.

TonyfromOz points out that during this hour the ABC also don’t mention that natural gas plants were running in SA. Apparently SA was exporting electricity to Victoria and with a magic filter at the border so only fossil powered electrons were sent there. He also points out the ABC forgot to say that South Australia only uses 5% of the National Electricity Market.

How many versions of natural gas and diesel keep the lights on in SA? Anero.id

 

In reality, I assume Victoria was the dumping ground for the solar surge — otherwise generators in SA would have to have been shut down or disconnected. Did Victorian baseload generators lose some […]

Roving organic MAGA crowds bypassing censorship

Fueled and Moving: Remember 2009? The Climate Skeptic world was set on fire as the ClimateGate hide-the-decline pure corruption was both verified and then ignored by the media. Now the Bidengate expose and audacious censorship is fueling the same indignation, brazen confidence and sheer determination on in a much bigger scale across the US of A.

Suddenly people who just had suspicions or hunches that things were wrong have been converted into campaigners with a mission. Doubts get replaced with confidence, and as the groups grow, so does the sense of “I’m not the only one”.

If the media won’t act as an outlet, then people find another way…

Trump’s Grassroots MAGA Army Working Around Platform Controls…

Sundance, ConservativeTreehouse

The MAGA rallies, parades and grassroots events are breaking out independent of each-other and literally happening all over the place on any given day. Miles and miles of cars with Trump flags… same with boats… and sometimes just marches in the street where thousands of people just gather and walk with American flags, Trump banners, and other gear.

The media not only have to put out the Biden-fires, they have to censor the censorship-flames too.

So […]

Polling expert explains why polls are junk and why he’s betting on Trump

When a global pandemic meets global scandal

The 900 hp passion of the Trumpers is swamping the pitiful gatherings for Harris-Biden. But how much does that reflect what the 10% in the middle are thinking?

Two experts with great track records predict the winner. One says Trump. One says Biden. One of them is much more convincing than the other.

It’s worth recalling Hillary was bleaching lap tops, and practically having seizures on camera, and she still won 60 million votes just like Donald Trump did. Enthusiam counts but it isn’t everything.

Trump had this election in the bag in January for his State of The Union, then all the normal election rules were tossed into orbit.

Things the ABC forgot to mention

The scandals of the Biden family are so big they have a gravitational field of their own– and whole institutions like The FBI have been captured in the orbit. The ABC had time to discuss an orchid rescue operation in Western Australia, but nothing on the growing questions of abuse of the roles, and now the cover up, near the top of our largest military ally two weeks before their election.

There are so many interesting commentators the ABC didn’t call.

Tom Fitton from JudicialWatch speaks about Joe Biden:

Who knew that Ukraine was just the side hustle for the Bidens…?

If I were the President I would take [the case] away from the FBI, and the Dept. of Justice.

They will not be able to derail an investigation no matter whether he gets elected.

Has Joe Biden disqualified himself from the Office…?
