    “After joining Burisma, Hunter Biden requested meetings with Antony Blinken: State Dept. emails

    President-elect Joe Biden nominated Blinken for secretary of state”

    “New Secretary of State pick Antony Blinken has a long-standing relationship with President-elect Joe Biden going back to their days in the Obama administration, but State Department emails revealed that during that time Blinken appeared to have made a connection with Hunter Biden as well.

    In the weeks leading up to the 2020 election, Hunter Biden was the subject of reports about business dealings in Ukraine and China and possible links to his father. Records show that the younger Biden also had ties to Blinken, having scheduled meetings with him while he was on the board of Ukrainian energy firm Burisma and Blinken was deputy secretary of state.

    “Have a few minutes next week to grab a cup of coffee? I know you are impossibly busy, but would like to get your advice on a couple of things,” Hunter Biden said in a May 22, 2015 email to Blinken that the State Department released in 2019, pursuant to a Freedom of Information Act request.

    “Absolutely,” Blinken replied. Several emails followed discussing logistics. A separate email from Blinken’s assistant on May 27, 2015, listed his schedule for that day. It included a meeting with Hunter Biden set for 3:30 p.m.

    The Washington Post reported last year that the meeting in May 2015 did not take place because Beau Biden died later that month. The Post reported, though, that the two met in July and that “they spoke about Beau and the Biden family.” The Post reported that, according to a person familiar with the meeting, the two did not discuss Burisma.

    Records related to that meeting and another in July 2015 raised concerns from Sens. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and Ron Johnson, R-Wis., who asked the State Department for more information.”

    “Biden selects architect of DACA to lead DHS

    Alejandro Mayorkas ran citizenship agency, was deputy secretary at DHS under Obama”

    “Presumed President-elect Joseph R. Biden said Monday he wants Alejandro Mayorkas to lead the Homeland Security Department, tapping an Obama-era mainstay who helped create the DACA program that protected “Dreamers,” but was also part of the team that expanded family detention.”

    ———

    “But his more than seven years in office also saw their share of controversy, with an inspector general finding he delivered favors in granting immigration visas at the request of high-powered Democrats. That’s likely to draw attention from Republicans.

    He also was deputy secretary, under Secretary Jeh Johnson, when the department grappled with the first surge of migrant children and families in 2014 and 2015. The department dramatically expanded family detention — from 100 beds to 3,000 — and built the chain-link fence pens, now derided as “cages,” used to hold immigrants who were in the country illegally at the border.”

  4. Quick question.

    If you worked in the foreign policy field for the US govt, wouldn’t America be your first priority?

    Of course it would, unless you’re a Never-Trump hack like Mattis.

    https://www.foxnews.com/politics/mattis-says-he-hopes-joe-biden-takes-america-first-out-of-national-security-strategy

    “Mattis says he hopes Joe Biden takes ‘America First’ out of national security strategy”

    “Former Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said in an op-ed on Monday that he hopes President-elect Joe Biden will take “America First” out of the national security strategy for his incoming administration.

    Mattis penned the op-ed, titled “Defense in Depth,” for Foreign Affairs with Kori Schake, director of foreign and defense policy studies at the American Enterprise Institute, Jim Ellis, a fellow at the Hoover Institution and former commander of U.S. Strategic Command, and Joe Felter, a fellow at the Hoover Institution.

    “In January, when President Joe Biden and his national security team begin to reevaluate U.S. foreign policy, we hope they will quickly revise the national security strategy to eliminate ‘America first’ from its contents, restoring in its place the commitment to cooperative security that has served the United States so well for decades,” they wrote. “The best strategy for ensuring safety and prosperity is to buttress American military strength with enhanced civilian tools and a restored network of solid alliances – both necessary to achieving defense in depth.”

    The four authors also that the U.S. currently is “undermining the foundations of an international order manifestly advantageous to U.S. interests, reflecting a basic ignorance of the extent to which both robust alliances and international institutions provide vital strategic depth.””

    Let’s see now…. under Trump, no terror attacks in the US., ISIS is done, Al-Qaeda is being picked off one by one, NATO members are finally paying their fair share, China is less powerful, and yet these clowns think a change is necessary?

  5. Dems first order of business now?

    Bringing back the bribes.

    “Facing A Razor-Thin House Majority, Democrats Seek To Resurrect Earmarks

    How better to bribe moderate Democrats into voting for their radical agenda?”

    “As the complete disaster Democrats experienced downticket continues to sink in, Democrats are scrambling to figure out how to govern with a razor-thin House majority. To that end, Nancy Pelosi’s right-hand man and the number two House Democrat Steny Hoyer is floating the return of earmarks.

    The Democrats’ House majority is smaller than that of any since FDR was president. As we’ve noted here at LI, this means that Pelosi can’t afford to lose more than four (or so, all races have not yet been called) Democrat votes on any piece of legislation. So naturally, Democrats are eager to resurrect the earmarks that the Tea Party was instrumental in stopping back in 2011.

    Americans saw the way earmarks were used to bribe ‘blue dog’ Democrat into voting for ObamaCare—who can forget the “Louisiana purchase” or the “Cornhusker kickback“?—, and the American people made it crystal clear that they would not tolerate their hard-earned tax dollars being spent on buying votes for legislation they reject.

    A ‘moratorium’ was placed on earmarks in 2011, and in 2014, then-House Speaker John Boehner banned a return to earmarks.

    After the disastrous 2010 midterm “shellacking” of Democrats, then-Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell announced his support of the Boehner-led House moratorium on earmarks (archive link). Just last year, Senate Republicans, under Senate Majority Leader McConnell’s leadership, permanently banned earmarks.

    The argument against the ban back in 2010 was that earmarks are small stuff; they consist of something like “one half of one percent” of the federal budget and therefore didn’t mean anything in the grand scheme of things. But that was always a lazy, ill-conceived, and bogus argument.”

    “REPORT: Dianne Feinstein Will Step Down As Top Democrat On Senate Judiciary Committee”

    “Democratic California Sen. Dianne Feinstein will reportedly step down as the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee.

    Three people familiar say she will step down soon, according to Politico. A number of Democratic senators reportedly criticized Feinstein, saying she was not the right person to serve as the top Democrat for the Supreme Court nomination hearings of now-Justice Amy Coney Barrett.

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer also said he had a “long and serious” talk with Feinstein after the hearings.

    In a Politico article published in late September, Democratic senators heavily criticized Feinstein while speaking on the condition of anonymity. One of the senators even allegedly said there is no way Feinstein could pull off leading the hearings for Democrats.”

    She didn’t pull it off, and now she’s gone. Willingly (wink, wink) of course…. 🙄

    “These discrepancies were a direct result of Wisconsin election officials’ willful violation of state law” – Amistad Project’s Phil Kline”

    “The national conservative group Amistad Project filed an emergency petition Tuesday with the Wisconsin Supreme Court challenging the state’s unofficial results in the 2020 presidential election, saying it has identified over 150,000 potentially fraudulent ballots.

    Results from the Nov. 3 balloting in the state show Democratic candidate Joe Biden defeated President Trump by a roughly 20,000-vote margin.

    Phill Kline, director of the Amistad Project of the Thomas More Society, said the number of potentially fraudulent ballots identified are “more than enough to call into question the validity of the state’s reported election results.”

    “Moreover, these discrepancies were a direct result of Wisconsin election officials’ willful violation of state law,” he also said.”

  8. The Stealing of the Presidency, 2020

    https://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/rich-noyes/2020/11/24/special-report-stealing-presidency-2020

    “The left-wing news media didn’t just poison the information environment with their incessantly negative coverage of President Trump going into the 2020 election. They also refused to give airtime to important arguments of the Republican campaign — both pro-Trump and anti-Biden — which meant millions of voters cast their ballots knowing only what the media permitted them to know about the candidates.

    To measure the true effect of the media’s censorship on the election, the Media Research Center asked The Polling Company to survey 1,750 Biden voters in seven swing states (Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin), six of which (all but North Carolina) were called for Biden (survey details below). We tested these voters’ knowledge of eight news stories — all important topics that our ongoing analysis had shown the liberal news media had failed to cover properly. We found that a huge majority (82%) of Biden voters were unaware of at least one of these key items, with five percent saying they were unaware of all eight of the issues we tested.

    This lack of information proved crucial: One of every six Biden voters we surveyed (17%) said they would have abandoned the Democratic candidate had they known the facts about one or more of these news stories. A shift of this magnitude would have changed the outcome in all six of the swing states won by Joe Biden, and Donald Trump would have comfortably won a second term as president.

    Here’s what we found:

    ■ Burying Biden’s Bad News: The media’s censorship of Biden’s scandals had the strongest impact on this year’s election. According to our survey, more than one-third of Biden voters (35.4%) were unaware of the serious allegations brought against the Democratic nominee by Tara Reade, a former staffer who said Biden sexually assaulted her in the 1990s.

    If they had known about Tara Reade’s sexual assault allegations, 8.9% told us they would have changed their vote — either switching to Trump or a 3rd party candidate, not voting for any presidential candidate, or not voting at all. By itself, this would have flipped all six of the swing states won by Biden (Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin), giving the President a win with 311 electoral college votes.

    Even more Biden voters (45.1%) said they were unaware of the financial scandal enveloping Biden and his son, Hunter (a story infamously censored by Twitter and Facebook, as well as ignored by the liberal media). According to our poll, full awareness of the Hunter Biden scandal would have led 9.4% of Biden voters to abandon the Democratic candidate, flipping all six of the swing states he won to Trump, giving the President 311 electoral votes.”
