  6. He’s not only the Gov. Florida needs, he’s the president the rest of the country needs too.

    https://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2022/03/29/unbothered_by_criticism_desantis_is_the_governor_florida_needs_147399.html

    “Florida is having a unique moment. For nearly two years, since the moment Gov. Ron DeSantis reopened beaches, schools, and businesses, all eyes have been on the Sunshine State. No other state has faced similar scrutiny. No other politician has been similarly dissected.

    DeSantis was right and other governors were wrong. We could not hide from COVID. We could not pause living because of COVID. It was freedom he was championing, yes. But it was also life. The acceptance of that rightness, even acknowledging it, has been reluctant at best. Even as other states followed Florida’s lead, in similar or worse COVID circumstances, recognition of DeSantis being correct all along has been hard to find.

    The governor of Florida made tough decisions in opposition to common thinking. In our era of conformity, this was not an easy call. His policies exposed how other states deeply hurt themselves and damaged their residents, children in particular, for no reason at all.

    His rightness has led to something else: DeSantis is nearly the entire conversation regarding the Republican nomination in 2024. Donald Trump is still a factor, of course, but those on the left imagine that they have already found a proven way to defeat him. Ron DeSantis will be harder to stop.

    The main attempt so far had been labeling DeSantis “Trump 2.0” as The Week did in February, Salon did two weeks ago, and the New York Times, always a late adopter, did a few days ago. This is unlikely to work. It’s not that the two men don’t have similarities. They both use their hands when they speak, they both feel comfortable battling the media, and they’re both residents of Florida – disqualifying the idea that DeSantis would settle for being Trump’s running mate.

    Among the many things that make them different is that DeSantis is famously involved in the minutiae of governing while Trump is more of a big picture guy. When DeSantis talks about why he lifted the restrictions in Florida, he explains that he looked at the data, looked at the science, and reached his conclusions. It was not for acclaim. He did the right thing for his citizens.

    This week, DeSantis signed the ​​Parental Rights in Education bill into law. The bill had caused a national stir after passing Florida’s House and Senate.

    The bill reads “Classroom instruction by school personnel or third parties on sexual orientation or gender identity may not occur in kindergarten through grade 3 or in a manner that is not age appropriate or developmentally appropriate for students in accordance with state standards.”

    As far as laws go, this one should not have been controversial.

    In normal times, the fact that a law is necessary at all to prohibit teachers delving into sexual orientation or gender identity to kids as young as five years old would have been the story. But these are not normal times and Florida is not your typical state.

    Its opponents pejoratively, and inaccurately, labeled it the “Don’t Say Gay” bill. Any reading of the legislation will show it does nothing to prohibit anyone saying “gay,” and yet leftist activists and their celebrity helpers began saying “gay” on repeat, and taking out billboards with the word splayed across it, as if it did.

    The reason is obvious: It’s not about the new law, which DeSantis signed Monday. It’s about an attempt to cripple a potential 2024 Republican candidate with charges of homophobia or worse. The law enjoys widespread support. So wide, in fact, that Florida Democratic primary voters support it by a measure of 52% to 36%.

    The story told in the Florida and national press paints a picture of a Gov. DeSantis alone on an island pushing out unpopular positions. As Florida’s Sun Sentinel newspaper titled it, “Normally a master of messaging, Ron DeSantis was outmaneuvered by the three-word catchphrase ‘Don’t Say Gay.’”

    The joke here is that it was the media running with the activist slogan and still the governor managed to outmaneuver them in the world of public opinion.

    It’s not hard to understand why. Gender and sex indoctrination is something that is absolutely happening on an ever-younger level. Parents post lessons to Twitter that show first graders learning about being neither gender – or both. This isn’t a made-up controversy. This is happening in schools across the country. Parents are rightly concerned. With the bill, DeSantis is answering that concern.

    One of the more telling moments of the controversy over the law was when the Walt Disney Company was pressured to step in. “You needed me to be a stronger ally in the fight for equal rights and I let you down,” Disney CEO Bob Chapek said in a statement on March 11. “I am sorry.”

    That Disney would take the side of encouraging the teaching of sexual orientation or gender to small children didn’t exactly fit with the brand. And DeSantis didn’t back down. “In Florida, our policies got to be based on the best interest of Florida citizens, not on the musing of woke corporations,” he said.”

  7. ‘Biggest fraud in a generation’

    No, not Biden…..

    “The looting of the Covid relief plan known as PPP”

    https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/justice-department/biggest-fraud-generation-looting-covid-relief-program-known-ppp-n1279664

    “They bought Lamborghinis, Ferraris and Bentleys.

    And Teslas, of course. Lots of Teslas.

    Many who participated in what prosecutors are calling the largest fraud in U.S. history — the theft of hundreds of billions of dollars in taxpayer money intended to help those harmed by the coronavirus pandemic — couldn’t resist purchasing luxury automobiles. Also mansions, private jet flights and swanky vacations.

    They came into their riches by participating in what experts say is the theft of as much as $80 billion — or about 10 percent — of the $800 billion handed out in a Covid relief plan known as the Paycheck Protection Program, or PPP. That’s on top of the $90 billion to $400 billion believed to have been stolen from the $900 billion Covid unemployment relief program — at least half taken by international fraudsters — as NBC News reported last year. And another $80 billion potentially pilfered from a separate Covid disaster relief program.

    The prevalence of Covid relief fraud has been known for some time, but the enormous scope and its disturbing implications are only now becoming clear.

    Even if the highest estimates are inflated, the total fraud in all Covid relief funds amounts to a mind-boggling sum of taxpayer money that could rival the $579 billion in federal funds included in President Joe Biden’s massive 10-year infrastructure spending plan, according to prosecutors, government watchdogs and private experts who are trying to plug the leaks.

    “Nothing like this has ever happened before,” said Matthew Schneider, a former U.S. attorney from Michigan who is now with Honigman LLP. “It is the biggest fraud in a generation.”

    Most of the losses are considered unrecoverable, but there is still a chance to stanch the bleeding, because federal officials say $600 billion is still waiting to go out the door. The Biden administration imposed new verification rules last year that administration officials say appear to have made a difference in curbing fraud. But they acknowledge that programs in 2020 sacrificed security for speed, needlessly.

    Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz, who oversees Covid relief spending, told “NBC Nightly News” anchor Lester Holt in an exclusive interview that Covid relief programs were structured in ways that made them ripe for plunder.

    “The Small Business Administration, in sending that money out, basically said to people, ‘Apply and sign and tell us that you’re really entitled to the money,’” said Horowitz, the chair of the Pandemic Response Accountability Committee. “And, of course, for fraudsters, that’s an invitation. … What didn’t happen was even minimal checks to make sure that the money was getting to the right people at the right time.”

    The criminal methodology varied depending on the program. The epic swindle of Covid unemployment relief has been carried out by individual criminals or organized crime groups using stolen identities to claim jobless benefits from state workforce agencies disbursing federal funds. Each identity could be worth up to $30,000 in benefits, Horowitz said.

    The looting of the Paycheck Protection Program worked differently — and it could be far more lucrative. The program authorized banks and other financial institutions to make government-backed loans to businesses, loans that were to be forgiven if the companies spent the money on business expenses. Nearly 10 million such loans have already been forgiven. Many of the loans-turned-grants were for millions of dollars, public records show.

    Experts say millions of borrowers inflated their numbers of employees or created companies out of whole cloth. For much of 2020, lenders did little to verify the applications, prosecutors and experts say, in part because Congress required the Small Business Administration, or SBA, which ran the program, to issue explicit guidance that in the interest of getting the money out fast, lenders “will be held harmless for borrowers’ failure to comply with program criteria.” The Government Accountability Office warned of fraud risk, but the program continued under that rule.

    “The government spent approximately $800 billion and provided 21 million loans to individuals,” said Haywood Talcove, the CEO of Lexis Nexis, which works with the government to verify identities.

    No one is sure exactly how much was stolen. An academic paper released last year estimated at least $76 billion in potential fraud, and the authors said that was conservative.

    The SBA’s inspector general has identified $78.1 billion in potentially fraudulent Economic Injury Disaster Loans, another Covid relief program for businesses. The Secret Service has its own estimate: $100 billion.”

  8. Unqualified and unfit.

    “In Depth: Ketanji Brown Jackson’s Soft Spot for Drug Dealers, Pedophiles and Terrorists”

    https://www.realclearinvestigations.com/articles/2022/03/29/in_depth_ketanji_brown_jacksons_soft_spot_for_drug_dealers_pedophiles_and_terrorists_823900.html

    “”Justice demands this result.” That’s what Ketanji Brown Jackson said in 2011 after the U.S. Sentencing Commission knocked as much as three years off the prison terms of crack-cocaine convicts. As vice chair of the commission, Jackson believed the nation’s drug laws were overly harsh and especially “unfair” to blacks.

    A month earlier, Jackson had shrugged off Justice Department warnings that the decision — which made more than 12,000 federal crack inmates eligible for early release — could flood the streets with dangerous criminals who would likely reoffend.

    “[B]y keeping them in longer, it doesn’t seem to make a difference with regard to whether or not they recidivate,” Jackson reasoned in a June 2011 commission hearing in Washington, according to transcripts reviewed by RealClearInvestigations.

    Then-U.S. Attorney Stephanie Rose objected: “It does protect the safety of the public, though, when they’re not present to recidivate.”

    Unpersuaded, Jackson countered: “But the amount of time in jail doesn’t affect that because there’s no difference. If we keep them in jail for the extra 36 months, or whatever, they’re going to recidivate at the same rate as if we released them early. So I don’t see how public protection is being affected one way or the other in that scenario.”

    “Because during the three years they are in prison, they are not out committing new crimes — that’s the difference,” Rose replied, adding that the department had “public safety concerns” over cutting prison terms for so many felons at once.

    Now vying for a spot on the U.S. Supreme Court, Jackson has struggled to fend off accusations that she is soft on crime. The Senate confirmation hearings have exposed a pattern: whether as a lawyer, sentencing commissioner or judge, she has disregarded the warnings or recommendations of prosecutors and investigators while advocating or easing the punishment not just for drug dealers but also child porn offenders and even accused terrorists.

    Jackson argues courts should have empathy for all people, no matter how egregious their behavior, and look to rehabilitate them and not just “lock them up and throw away the key.”

    Her supporters say she would bring a fresh new perspective to the high bench, which has been dominated by former prosecutors trained to keep criminals in prison, not out of it. If confirmed, Jackson would be the modern court’s first public defender. No sitting justice has such experience.

    But Republicans and other critics contend her compassion has come at a price. They say she’s tended to cut criminals too much slack, putting them back on the street where they can repeat their crimes — and in many cases, some of them have reoffended and found new victims, records examined by RCI reveal.

    Detractors say such leniency raises concerns about how, if confirmed, she would handle cases that may come before the high bench involving terrorism, child pornography, drug trafficking and other serious crimes.

    Although her direct impact on the case law would probably be minimal, with conservatives still commanding a solid majority in most cases, at age 51 she figures to be on the high court for a long time. And in the near term, she could write influential dissents, pulling the minority farther left, especially on criminal-justice issues. Court watchers say she could play a powerful role in resolving some major criminal-justice questions facing the bench — from the uniform application of sentencing guidelines to who is eligible for “compassionate release” from prison. ”

    More Than 31,000 Drug-Traffickers
    Granted Early Release
    While guiding the sentencing commission, Jackson didn’t just resist federal prosecutors’ warnings that granting crack dealers early release would merely put them back in action faster. She also ignored their advice to exclude from eligibility those with firearms in their records. In the end, she sided with NAACP official Hilary O. Shelton, who called crack sentences “racially discriminatory” and demanded the commission “correct this injustice.”

    “People of color are being put in prison at much higher rates than their Caucasian counterparts,” Shelton asserted, testifying before the commission alongside Rose.

    But Jackson wasn’t satisfied with releasing only inmates locked up for dealing crack. In 2014, she helped push a proposal to slash sentencing guidelines for the full array of drug offenses. Several months later, the commission voted to let such inmates apply for the sweeping reductions retroactively — a move that sped the release of tens of thousands more prisoners. Since drug felons make up roughly half the federal prison population, it was arguably the most consequential decision the panel has made in its 38-year history.

    All told, more than 31,000 drug-traffickers were granted early release, and most are now back on the streets. Studies show many of them are career criminals whose drug crimes involved guns — like Jackson’s own uncle, Thomas Brown Jr., whose life prison sentence she helped get commuted around the same time.

    Jackson assured the public that judges wouldn’t just dump prisoners into communities without first assessing their risk on a case-by-case basis. “Each drug offender is going to have to be evaluated individually in order to determine whether or not, as a result of dangerousness or otherwise, his or her sentence should be reduced,” she said on NPR in July 2014.

    In reality, more than two-thirds of all the drug traffickers who asked for early release got it, and virtually all those denied weren’t turned down because they were too dangerous to release, but because they weren’t eligible for release in the first place. An estimated 7,500-plus who received get-out-of-jail passes had used weapons as part of their underlying crimes. One of them was Washington D.C. gang leader Willie Best, sentenced in 2008 for firing a high-powered rifle at a rival drug gang member while sitting in a stolen car. Others had prior robbery, assault and other violent convictions in their records.”

    “NJ middle school teaches 7th graders about trans hormone therapy”

    https://hotair.com/jazz-shaw/2022/03/28/nj-middle-school-teaches-7th-graders-about-trans-hormone-therapy-n458476

    “Parents of students at a middle school in Kinnelon, N.J. were recently shocked to learn that their children had been shown a video of a transgender adult injecting testosterone and talking about their experience over a ten-year period. The video was shown in the childrens’ social studies class, indicating that social studies has certainly changed a lot since I took those classes back in the day. The fact that the parents were not notified in advance caused many of them to contact the school or go down in person to ask questions. They later learned that the subject of the film, Aydian Dowling, was scheduled to speak at a school-wide assembly, though the parents were given the opportunity to opt out for that event. School officials admitted the parents should have also had the chance to opt out of the video presentation. (Free Beacon)

    As part of a social studies class, a New Jersey public middle school forced students to watch a video about a transgender man’s hormone treatment—all without notifying parents.

    The video, “Ten Years on Testosterone,” details the transition of LGBT activist Aydian Dowling through hormone injections. Teachers and administrators at Pearl R. Miller Middle School in Kinnelon, N.J., did not notify parents about the lesson, which included slideshows with definitions of different gender ideologies, beforehand.

    “You can build up the courage to stand up for yourself in a way that this is what you want to do with your life,” Dowling says in the video after injecting testosterone.

    Middle school students are at the age where they are transitioning toward adult bodies and are always very curious, but this is still the sort of thing that should be left to the discretion of the parents. And I’m referring to any material relating to sexual maturity, not transgender indoctrination.

    What’s more disturbing is the idea that a patient who has no listed medical training is distributing information like this to children. Hormone therapy has been used for a long time to treat patients with a variety of issues and it’s something that always has to be monitored closely. Significant side effects are possible and the prognosis varies from patient to patient. This is often the case with women who undergo surgery after reaching menopause and developing issues. Getting the replacement hormone levels correct can be tricky.

    What’s being discussed here, however, is something entirely different. This isn’t replacement therapy. This is a case of taking an otherwise healthy body and grossly altering the hormone levels the person’s system “expects” to encounter. As I’ve said here repeatedly, if you’re an adult and you want to do this and can find a doctor to assist you, feel free. Just be aware that you are responsible for the consequences.

    But this film was being shown to children, some of whom were assuredly barely past puberty. I did some checking and found out that Aydian Dowling is now 34 years old and has been injecting testosterone for ten years. That means that she didn’t start on this regimen until she was already in her twenties and an adult. Doing this to children is pretty much as insane as giving them puberty-blocking drugs, which really should be a felony and a reason to remove any doctor’s license. That’s because the FDA has never approved the most common puberty-blocking drugs for gender dysphoria, only for precocious puberty.

    Parents in New Jersey had better brace for even more rough waters. As the Free Beacon goes on to report, Democratic governor Phil Murphy is getting ready to enact new education “health standards” that will see second-graders learning about genitalia, and “gender expression.” Students in fifth grade will be taught about masturbation, sexual orientation, and gender identity. And eighth-graders will have to be able to define “vaginal sex, oral sex, and anal sex.””

    https://www.theepochtimes.com/cia-officer-who-signed-hunter-biden-laptop-letter-claims-credit-for-trump-loss_4369180.html

    “One of the former CIA officers who signed a letter claiming stories about a laptop allegedly belonging to Hunter Biden were disinformation says he helped swing the 2020 election from former President Donald Trump.

    “I take special pride in personally swinging the election away from Trump,” John Sipher, who served for decades as a senior operations officer at the CIA, wrote in a recent post on Twitter.

    “I lost the election for Trump? Well then I fell [sic] pretty good about my influence,” he also wrote.

    Sipher and 50 other former U.S. intelligence officials signed the letter on Oct. 19, 2020, alleging that the effort to distribute its contents “has all the classic earmarks of a Russian information operation,” despite not knowing whether the laptop was legitimate.

    The letter was the core of a story from Politico that claimed the New York Post story on the laptop was “Russian disinformation.””

    “Shortly after The New York Times quietly admitted that Hunter Biden’s laptop is legitimate even though it was smeared as “disinformation” to protect then-candidate Joe Biden during the 2020 election, Republican Sens. Chuck Grassley of Iowa and Ron Johnson of Wisconsin released bombshell receipts showing Hunter received payments from foreign oligarchs that further reveal “the extent to which President Biden might be — and almost certainly is — compromised.”

    According to the documents obtained by the senators, energy company CEFC, “an arm of the Chinese Government,” paid Wells Fargo Clearing Services $100,000 and designated “further credit to Owasco,” Hunter’s firm.”

    “There’s no middle man in this transaction. This is $100,000 from what is effectively an arm of the communist Chinese government direct to Hunter Biden,” Grassley said on the Senate floor on Monday. “To the liberal media and my Democratic colleagues: Is this official bank document Russian disinformation?””

    ““Bank records like this piece of evidence are pretty hard to deny and sweep under the rug. Our reports were chocked full of irrefutable evidence like this. And yet, the media buried those details, in an attempt to keep it hidden from the American people,” Johnson added in his testimony.”

    “Gaetz reintroduces resolution to strip security clearances from Hunter laptop deniers”

    https://hotair.com/jazz-shaw/2022/03/29/gaetz-reintroduces-resolution-to-strip-security-clearances-from-hunter-laptop-deniers-n458772

    “Republican Congressman Matt Gaetz of Florida isn’t done with the Hunter Biden laptop story yet. Following the long-delayed admission of the New York Times that the story was absolutely real, Gaetz has once again entered a resolution for the consideration of the House. In what has been dubbed “The Spook Who Cried Wolf” resolution, Gaetz isn’t going after Hunter Biden, Joe Biden, or any of their business associates in China, Ukraine, or elsewhere. He is calling out the 51 “security experts” and intelligence officials who all signed a letter on October 19, 2020, stating that the emails were most likely “Russian disinformation,” suggesting that it was all part of some dirty trick being played by the Bad Orange Man or his henchmen. Gaetz wants it to be resolved that none of the 51 of them should ever hold a security clearance again based on what clearly appears to have been an effort to mislead the public only weeks before the election. A portion of a press release he sent out today reads as follows:

    Today, U.S. Congressman Matt Gaetz (FL-01) will introduce the “Spook Who Cried Wolf Resolution,” a House Resolution to indefinitely bar security clearances for 51 intelligence officials who publicly signed a letter decrying the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop as Russian disinformation.

    On October 19, 2020, 51 former intelligence officials signed a letter titled, “Public Statement on the Hunter Biden Emails,” which claimed Hunter Biden’s emails were a part of a “Russian information operation.” Following the censorship of the New York Post’s exposé on the emails by Big Tech and media tycoons, the New York Times confirmed the legitimacy of the emails on March 17, 2022. As of March 22, 2022, 4 of the 51 signatories maintained their support for the erroneous letter.

    As Gaetz points out, some of the signatories have recently come out and amazingly stood by their original letter, despite having been proven incontrovertibly wrong. To assume that this was all some inexplicable coincidence stretches credulity beyond the limit.

    You can read the full text of the resolution here at Gaetz’s congressional website. There is a lengthy list of “whereas” precursors detailing the sequence of events from the New York Post’s original bombshell (and accurate) reporting on the contents of the laptop up to the present. He includes the broader apparent media and Big Tech conspiracy, where the NY Post had their Twitter account suspended for linking to one of their own articles. On the rare occasions when anyone in the liberal media mentioned the story, it was quickly written off as either a hoax or, again, “Russian disinformation.”

    The list of names of the individuals who should lose their security clearances includes some heavy hitters. You’ll see the names of Jim Clapper, Leon Panetta, John Brennan, and many others.”

    “Gaetz Enters Hunter Biden’s Laptop, Receipt From Computer Shop Into Congressional Record

    Gaetz to the FBI: “How are Americans supposed to trust that you can protect us from the next Colonial pipeline if it seems you can’t locate a laptop that was given to you three years ago from the First Family, potentially creating vulnerabilities for our country?””

    https://legalinsurrection.com/2022/03/gaetz-enters-hunter-bidens-laptop-receipt-from-computer-shop-into-congressional-record/

    “Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) entered Hunter Biden’s laptop and the receipt from Mac’s Computer repair into the congressional record.

    Gaetz came down hard on FBI Assistant Director for the Cyber Division Bryan Vorndran, asking him if the laptop “created cyber vulnerabilities.”

    Vorndran admitted he did not know the location of the laptop or if Russia used any of the contents.

    From a Gaetz press release:

    Who has it?” Gaetz asked. “I don’t know who has it,” the witness responded to surprise.

    Next, Gaetz entered into the committee record the contents of Hunter’s Biden’s Laptop and a receipt from Mac’s Computer Repair evidencing the FBI taking possession of the Laptop in December 2019. Still, the FBI Cyber Assistant Director testified that after three years in possession of the Laptop, no assessment had been made.

    “How are Americans supposed to trust that you can protect us from the next Colonial pipeline if it seems you can’t locate a laptop that was given to you three years ago from the First Family, potentially creating vulnerabilities for our country?,” Gaetz asked.

    Utilizing the exact language Robert Mueller offered the Judiciary Committee when ignoring Democratic National Committee dies to the Steele Dossier, the FBI Cyber Assistant Director said Hunter’s Laptop was not in his “purview.”

    Gaetz further referenced the “international business deals, kickbacks and shakedowns” that would allow foreign adversaries to compromise the First Family. The FBI Cyber witness would not or could not testify that the First Family was not compromised by the Laptop’s contents.

    Assistant Director Vorndarn committed to carry Gaetz’s demand for a further briefing on the matter to the FBI.

    House Judiciary Committee Chairman tried to block Gaetz’s request, but eventually gave in:
    Earlier, Gaetz held up what appeared to be a small external hard drive as he said, “I seek unanimous consent to enter into the record of this committee, the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop, which I’m in possession of.”

    At that time, Nadler said, “I’m not –” and paused to confer with an aide, during which another lawmaker said, “There’s no objection to that.”

    Nadler then announced, “I will object, pending further investigation.”

    “Mainstream Media Outlets Ignore New Details in Hunter Biden Scandals

    “to keep the public from knowing about the President’s wayward son and his sketchy financial and foreign dealings””

    https://legalinsurrection.com/2022/03/mainstream-media-outlets-ignore-new-details-in-hunter-biden-scandals/

    “Mainstream liberal media outlets such as the three major networks are ignoring new developments in the ongoing saga of the Hunter Biden scandals.

    Do you think they would ignore this story if it were about Donald Trump Jr.? Not a chance.

    It must be nice to be a Democrat.

    Brian Flood reports at FOX News:

    ABC, CBS, NBC ignore Hunter Biden scandals, haven’t mentioned his name in 259 days, study says

    Morning and evening newscasts on ABC, CBS and NBC haven’t uttered the name “Hunter Biden” in 259 days despite ongoing scandals surrounding the president’s son, according to a study by the Media Research Center.

    “It has now been 259 days — 37 weeks — since July 12, 2021. That’s when any of the corrupt network newscasts last uttered the words ‘Hunter Biden.’ Scandal after scandal, nothing seems to shake the determination of the ABC, CBS, and NBC morning and evening news shows to keep the public from knowing about the President’s wayward son and his sketchy financial and foreign dealings,” MRC research director Scott Whitlock wrote.

    Whitlock analyzed ABC’s “Good Morning America,” “World News Tonight,” CBS’ morning offerings, “CBS Evening News,” NBC’s “Today” and “NBC Nightly News” and discovered zero mentions of “Hunter Biden” since last July.

    While the broadcast networks have avoided Hunter Biden at all costs, the president’s son has been mentioned by other news outlets.

    The New York Times confirmed earlier this month the authenticity of Hunter Biden’s infamous laptop, which he left in a Delaware repair shop in 2019 before it was turned over to the FBI by the repair shop owner.
    The New York Post, which was silenced by social media companies when they first reported on Hunter’s laptop, is now reporting on a new Hunter scandal:

    Hunter Biden’s $142K Fisker sports car scrutinized in tax probe: report

    Prosecutors leading the Hunter Biden tax probe are investigating his purchase of a $142,000 plug-in hybrid sports car whose manufacturer defaulted on a massive Obama administration loan touted by his father, according to a report Monday.

    Some of the testimony presented to a Delaware grand jury also appears to be intended to prevent the first son from mounting a defense based on his admittedly sordid history of drug and alcohol abuse, the Wall Street Journal said…

    The car in question is a Fisker Karma, which was sold by the Fisker Automotive start-up company after it got $529 million in loan guarantees from the US Department of Energy to develop the Karma and convert an abandoned General Motors factory in the Biden family’s hometown of Wilmington, Del., for a planned line of family-oriented electric vehicles.

    Margot Cleveland of The Federalist offers an even worse example:

    Hunter Biden’s Laptops Are Now An Active National Security Threat

    On Friday, The Daily Mail reported that emails recovered from Hunter Biden’s laptop show he helped an infectious disease research company pursue projects in Ukraine. Those emails confirm portions of charges Russia made the previous day that an investment group run by the now-president’s son had funded a company conducting research at biological laboratories in Ukraine.

    While these developments add another scandal to the long list of Biden family dirty laundry, the more urgent concern for the country should be the continuing threat to our national security posed by a compromised President Biden and the possibility that Russia has access to the catalog of compromising material contained on Hunter’s laptop.”

  17. I’ve read that the audience at the Oscars thought that the slap was staged between Smith and Rock, at least at first, which accounts for the laughter.

    Although it was wrong for Smith to do that, I was glad to hear that Rock is not pressing charges. And Smith has issued a public apology:

    “Will Smith issued a public apology to Chris Rock, whom he slapped onstage at the Oscars after the comedian joked about his wife Jada Pinkett Smith’s bald head.

    “Violence in all of its forms is poisonous and destructive,” Smith wrote on Instagram Monday, the day after the ceremony where he won best actor for playing Venus and Serena Williams’ father in “King Richard.” “My behavior at last night’s Academy Awards was unacceptable and inexcusable.”

    Smith added: “Jokes at my expense are a part of the job, but a joke about Jada’s medical condition was too much for me to bear and I reacted emotionally.”

  18. I well recall that in the 5th grade all the girls were recipients of a “secret envelope” to be taken home and not to be opened until it was handed to Mom! We were going to be staying after school the next week to view a film on menstruation…the boys were not to be told! Now our “educations” want to discuss with our wee ones in K-3rd grade about their “feelings” and “identities” that may or may not coincide with their gender. And they are as mad as heck that parents object! Thank the Lord for DeSantis and his courageous move to protect parental rights and their children! I read a quote of a male kindergarten teacher in FL who was distraught because he would not be allowed to discuss his “love life” with his students! These are “teaching” the children?!! And the “greatest place on earth for children” DisneyWorld has hundreds of workers walking out in protest? Parents still want to take their children there?!! Oh gosh people need to wake up!
    I don’t watch network TV and certainly not the “Oscar’s” but have read about and seen the reports on the news teasers. Can you imagine the riot if Will Smith was white? There seems to be no accountability for him and is violent actions….just an “oops….I’m sorry….now give me my award and let’s go party”!! Outrageous……
