  1. It’s fine…..


    “Hunter Biden recorded himself boasting that his father will adopt political positions at his command, footage obtained from a copy of his abandoned laptop shows.

    “He’ll talk about anything that I want him to, that he believes in,” Biden said in reference to his father, Joe Biden, in the Dec. 3, 2018, recording. “If I say it’s important to me, then he will work a way in which to make it a part of his platform. My dad respects me more than he respects anyone in the world, and I know that to be certain, so it’s not going to be about whether it affects his politics.”

    “All those fears you think that I have of people not liking me or that I don’t love myself … I don’t fear that. You know why I don’t fear that? Because the man I most admire in the world, that god to me, thinks I’m a god,” Hunter Biden added in the 77-minute recording, which was taped about five months before Joe Biden launched his successful 2020 presidential campaign in late April 2019. “And my brother did, too. And the three of us, it was literally — I had the support to know I can do anything.”

    The recording was located on a copy of Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop within a password-protected backup of his iPhone XS. Konstantinos “Gus” Dimitrelos, a cyber forensics expert commissioned by the Washington Examiner, located the password during his examination of the hard drive.

    In the recording, Hunter Biden bragged to his friend, British artist Phillipa Horan, that he was “better than anybody you know” as the pair discussed matters ranging from Joe Biden’s presidential aspirations, Hunter Biden’s struggles with addiction, an art project the two were working on together, and philosophical musings on how to live a fulfilling life.

    “Everyone thinks it, talks about how — ‘How can you be as good as your dad?’ I’m better than my dad,” Hunter Biden said. “You know why I’m better than my dad? Because my dad tells me I’m better than him, since I was 2 years old.””

  2. Soros did this, with the aid of Democrats on his payroll.




  3. But no mean tweets, right?


    So people unlike Nancy.


  4. While you pay record prices for everything, Joe has other uses for your money.



  5. So where is the Biden DoJ and Garland on these terrorists and their threats?

    Oh that’s right, they agree with them…

  6. “Pregnancy Care Centers in the Crosshairs”


    “What would it be like to go to work in the morning and find a death threat spray-painted across the façade of your office? What would it be like knowing that a facility just like yours was recently fire-bombed near Buffalo, New York? Would you keep showing up? Would you continue to put yourself in danger?

    Maybe you could, if you knew you were saving fragile lives and helping vulnerable women and girls each day. Maybe you could, if you were very brave.

    These are the hard questions facing the volunteers and staff at a pregnancy care center in South Florida where I volunteer. It was recently vandalized with spray-painted threats. Like other pregnancy care centers, our facility assists under-resourced pregnant women and families. Our clients are already struggling to make ends meet. Unlike the nearby Planned Parenthood, our center offers real choice. While Planned Parenthood offers exactly one solution for parents in this situation – abortion, and cash up front, please! – our center offers material necessities, parental education, assistance in accessing obstetric care, ultrasounds, and adoption referrals for those who don’t feel they are prepared to parent. All free, of course. And the mothers who nevertheless choose to have an abortion are always welcomed back with open arms for post-abortion grief counseling when and if they need it.

    These are the works of mercy that have sparked the ire of hate groups like the one that claimed responsibility for the recent arson at a Wisconsin pregnancy care center. The vandals scrawl a variant of the same phrase at each site: “If abortions aren’t safe, then you aren’t either.” The group’s name – Jane’s Revenge – was painted across our facility’s wall. Their communique, as issued via journalist Robert Evans, reads, in part: “We have run thin on patience and mercy…we [shall] adopt increasingly extreme tactics to maintain freedom over our own bodies.” These are the kinds of words used by ideologues and extremists who are, indeed, ready to use violence to cleanse the world of the people who disagree with them.

    Since the leak of Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito’s draft opinion in the Dobbs v. Jackson case, the furor of the pro-abortion left has reached a fever pitch. The Department of Homeland Security reported an increase in violent threats against sitting justices and the Supreme Court building. Also immediately targeted for violence were those who take to heart a central tenet of their faith – namely, that all people are made in God’s image and are deserving of our respect and protection. Specifically, those who believe that the vulnerable and innocent unborn child must absolutely be counted amongst those whose lives matter. Somehow that has made them targets for the far left, and we are seeing the results across the country in vandalism, destruction, arson, defacement of sacred objects, and anti-Catholic language spray-painted on houses of worship.

    And it didn’t take long for extremists to direct their fury at pregnancy care centers, the compassionate outreach arm of the pro-life movement which embraces vulnerable moms and families. Arson in Wisconsin, defacement in the District of Columbia, fire-bombing in Buffalo, and vandalism threatening violence here in Hollywood, Florida, are but a few of the examples of this terrorism.

    These acts must be prosecuted just as vigorously as any other act of violence – including those which have been committed against abortion facilities in the past. Violence is contagious and once unleashed, can grow exponentially. That’s one reason it must never be tolerated, from anyone. “

  7. This is what Soros’ foreign money and influence bring to America, with the aid and complicity of Democrats.

    “A ‘Trojan Horse’ in the Los Angeles D.A.’s Office

    The revolt against George Gascon isn’t just coming from victims of crime. It’s coming from inside his own office.”


    “On May 31, 2018, Desiree Andrade was scrolling through Facebook when she saw a local news report about the body of an unidentified man found at the base of a canyon in the forest north of Los Angeles. Andrade’s son, Julian, who was 20, had disappeared two days earlier. So she called the police. “I was giving facial features,” she told me, “and the lady on the other end said, ‘You know, ma’am, facial features aren’t going to work. He doesn’t have a face.’”

    Andrade told the dispatcher there was a rose tattoo on Julian’s left hand. A few minutes later, a detective called her back to confirm that the dead man was her son.

    Five men were charged in Julian Andrade’s death—beating and stabbing him, and then throwing him off a cliff, and then, when they heard him thrashing about, climbing down to pummel him some more. Two of them had known him in high school. They thought he’d stolen their weed.

    He died slowly—from head trauma, blood loss and the cold. By the time his body was recovered, two days later, it had been ripped apart by bears or mountain cats.

    Prosecutors told Desiree Andrade it could take up to five years for the case to inch its way through the system but assured her that justice would ultimately be served. Then Covid hit, and everything slowed down. And then, while the city was still hunkered down, George Gascon became Los Angeles County district attorney.

    The day after Gascon’s inauguration, on December 7, 2020, Phil Stirling, the lead prosecutor on the case, called Desiree Andrade. She was at her home in Whittier on a conference call. (Like everyone, she was working remotely.)

    The new D.A., Stirling explained, had issued nine directives that, among other things, eliminated “enhancements”—extra penalties for more serious crimes. Stirling had been hoping for life without parole for “the three heavies.” (The other two defendants were not thought to have played a central role in the murder.) But without the enhancement—Julian Andrade hadn’t simply been murdered but murdered during the commission of a kidnapping—the best they could hope for, he said, was 25 years in prison, which probably meant 20, since convicts often wind up serving 80 percent of their sentence.

    “I felt betrayed,” Desiree Andrade told me.

    Her son’s case was one of thousands that, in the waning weeks of 2020, were suddenly, inexplicably downgraded. The stories of justice denied, and the rage and heartbreak of mothers and fathers like Desiree Andrade, combined with a rise in violent crime, ignited a firestorm across the city. In December 2021, angry Angelenos, including Andrade, launched a recall campaign against Gascon.

    The campaign has reeled in more than 500,000 signatures. If it gets the 566,857 it needs by July 6, voters will decide come November whether to fire the D.A. (Given that organizers recently mailed out 3.6 million more petitions, including return envelopes, that seems likely.)

    The revolt—as was the case in San Francisco, with the campaign against Chesa Boudin, another uber-progressive prosecutor—is coming from inside the house, too.

    In February, the prosecutors’ union, the Association of Deputy District Attorneys, conducted a vote to see where its members stood on the recall: Nearly 98 percent supported it. Last week’s recall of Boudin gave the anti-Gascon organizers a major boost. “Everyone is talking about it in the office,” a prosecutor said. “Literally everyone.”

    “Democrats’ January 6th Show Trial Episode 2 Falls Dramatically in Ratings and Episode 3 is Postponed

    “The second public hearing of the House select committee investigating last year’s Capitol riot drew around 10 million total viewers Monday, less than half the audience that watched the committee’s primetime opening presentation last week.””


    “As we noted last week, episode 1 of the Democrats’ January 6th show trial earned less than stellar ratings. Now the ratings are in for episode 2 and they’re even worse.

    Also, for some strange reason, episode 3 was postponed. What’s going on here?

    Mark Moore of the New York Post has the ratings details on episode 2:

    Ratings slump for second Jan. 6 hearing as around 10 million tune in

    The second public hearing of the House select committee investigating last year’s Capitol riot drew around 10 million total viewers Monday, less than half the audience that watched the committee’s primetime opening presentation last week.

    The preliminary numbers from Nielsen Media Research incorporated viewership across cable news, as well as ABC and CBS properties. Numbers from NBC News were not immediately available Tuesday.

    Last week’s hearing aired on 12 different TV channels and drew an audience of 20 million Americans — more than watched this year’s Oscars or Game 3 of the NBA Finals between the Boston Celtics and Golden State Warriors, the latter of which aired the night before.

    Fox News did not broadcast Thursday’s hearing in favor of its regular programming but did cover Monday’s proceedings from start to finish.

    The fall in ratings is a real mystery. Maybe, and I’m just thinking out loud here, Americans are more concerned about gas prices that are now over $5 a gallon and a nationwide shortage of baby formula.

    Perhaps skyrocketing food prices are more important to most average Americans than saving “our democracy” from Trump supporters.
    Episode 3 was supposed to air Wednesday but has apparently been postponed due to technical difficulties.

    NBC News reports:

    Jan. 6 committee abruptly postpones Wednesday hearing

    The House committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol announced Tuesday it was postponing a public hearing scheduled for 10 a.m. ET Wednesday.”

    “Wholesale Prices Rise Almost 11%, Setting Records

    Doubling April’s price increase”


    “From CNBC:

    Wholesale prices rose at a brisk pace in May as inflation pressures mounted on the U.S. economy, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported Tuesday.

    The producer price index, a measure of the prices paid to producers of goods and services, rose 0.8% for the month and 10.8% over the past year. The monthly rise was in line with Dow Jones estimates and a doubling of the 0.4% pace in April.

    Excluding food, energy and trade, so-called core PPI rose 0.5% on the month, slightly below the 0.6% estimate but an increase from the 0.4% reading in the previous month. On a year-over-year basis, the core measure was up 6.8%, matching April’s gain.

    The two PPI measures remained near their historic highs — 11.5% for headline, and 7.1% for core, both hit in March.

    The data is significant in that prices at the wholesale level feed through to consumer prices, which are running at their highest levels since December 1981. The consumer price index increased 8.6% annually in May, defying hopes that inflation had peaked in the spring.”

  10. They confess, Biden, Garland, and their corrupt DoJ do nothing, because this is their base.


    “We’ve already witnessed two dozen different firebombing attacks on Christian groups, pro-life pregnancy centers, and public officials, with the latest being an attempt to burn down the office of a state official in Oregon. It seems obvious that this is some sort of organized effort to destroy the property of someone’s ideological adversaries rather than an organic coincidence. Now a group has publicly claimed responsibility for these attacks, or at least is trying to do so. As our colleague Katie Pavlich reports at Townhall this week, an online collection of pro-abortion extremists connected to Antifa, calling themselves Jane’s Revenge, has issued a dire warning that there will be more firebombings to come and suggesting that much worse will happen as well.

    The violent pro-abortion group Jane’s Revenge, which is connected to the leftist anarchist group Antifa, has declared open season on pro-life crisis pregnancy centers and has issued an ultimatum.

    “We were unsurprised to see thirty days come and thirty days pass with no sign of consilience or even bare-minimum self-reflection from you who impersonate healthcare providers in order to harm the vulnerable. History may not repeat itself, but it certainly rhymes, and we’ve already seen such stanzas where medical autonomy is stripped away, humanity is increasingly criminalized, and merely surviving becomes largely untenable,” the group released in a statement.

    “Your thirty days expired yesterday. We offered an honourable way out. You could have walked away. Now the leash is off. And we will make it as hard as possible for your campaign of oppression to continue.”


  11. Meanwhile, Biden and Dems political prisoners continue to be locked away in solitary in squalid conditions.

    “The ‘White Nationalists’ Arrested At The Idaho Pride Event Were The Least Armed And Dangerous People That Day”


    “By the way Chief Lee White of the Coeur d’Alene Police Department is acting, you’d swear he just prevented a mass shooting in a preschool using only psychic abilities and a roll of tape.

    But that’s not what White and his force did. Instead, on Saturday they arrested 31 guys who were found to be in possession of nothing other than a single smoke bomb and a plan to make noise throughout the city.

    Each individual was charged with one misdemeanor, “conspiracy to commit riot,” based on the fact that the men involved were dressed in distinguished uniforms of khaki pants and blue t-shirts, plus some of them had shin guards and shields. There were no guns nor ammunition, but they did have some kind of document spelling out a plan to march in a line through a downtown park and agitate passersby.

    The intent was to align in “a column forming on the outside of the park, proceeding inward, until barriers to approach are met,” according to The New York Times, and “once an appropriate amount of confrontational dynamic has been established the column will disengage and head to Sherman [Ave.].” In other words: Show up, irritate pedestrians, and then leave.

    It’s certainly annoying and offensive, but since when did that require two press conferences from the police chief and fire-alarm coverage from The New York Times, the Washington Post, CNN, and on and on?

    Ah, that’s because this wasn’t just anybody. This wasn’t Black Lives Matter or Antifa. It was the Patriot Front, a group made up of “white nationalists.” That’s why we’re supposed to believe this was so important. They were white racists and, as we’re told by the FBI and the media over and over again, that’s the greatest threat to the country at the moment.

    It’s not because anyone was hurt or that there was even any evidence that there was a specific plan of assault. They had no weapons.

    Admittedly, anything can be a weapon, but generally speaking, a shield is meant to defend, not attack. And Chief White said there were regular attendees “walking around the [Pride] event with long guns and handguns and bear spray and all kinds of things like that.” That’s perfectly legal for them to do in Idaho, but it was apparently the shields police were concerned with.

    The police report from the arrest says that it was “likely the intent” of the group to “incite physical confrontation and cause disorder,” and “use violence and/or the threat of violence to disturb the public peace.”

    Again, it’s not that that’s not serious, but consider the hostage situation the entire nation faced (and continues to face) through the summer and fall of 2020 when violent Black Lives Matter riots were raging in every major city. “Mostly peaceful,” we were assured. In the case of Coeur d’Alene, nothing happened, and in addition, White said plenty of activist groups were in the city at the same time, opposed to and in support of the Pride event, including the left-wing Antifa and the right-wing Panhandle Patriots.

    A member of the Panhandle Patriots group is even on video ahead of time saying they planned to go “head to head” with the Pride organizers and attendees. “Damn the repercussions,” he said. “Stand up, take it to the head, go to the fight.”

    Okay, so why was there a major arrest of an unaffiliated group that had nothing but a single smoke bomb? (Which, by the way, would have had minimal effect outdoors.)”


    Just another fed run hoax.

  14. Is Hunter Biden a crack head drug addict with zero credibility or is he a credible witness who has his dad wrapped around his finger – you can’t have both.

    I have respect for both pro-life and Planned Parenthood groups. Both seemed to fill the gap that the US gov’t has left. In almost every developed country, pre and post natal care is fully funded by the gov’t. In the US, most women seem to be left on their own. As much as I think the pro-life groups offer a needed service I’d be more impressed if they adovocated for free pre and post natal care, paid maternity leave, and essentially universal health care. If you value human life, these are the positions to take. The stats prove my point — an infant in Cuba has a better change to make it to its 2nd birthday than a child in Mississippi, actually the Cuban baby has a better chance to reach its 5th birthday than an American chiild. Ameican economic and health policy isn’t pro-life.

    If Jan 6th rioters are guilty of nothing more than parading without a license and were not in the capital to promote insurrection, then how are they political prisoners. You can’t claim it was a nothing burger and then say its political persecution. From my understanding of the US justifce system, locking people up on minor charges til they plead out is pretty much normal. This is how your system works – now that it seems to affect small town white people it suddenly becomes persecution.

    As for Idaho; don’t show up at somebody else’s parade and attempting to claim you weren’t trying to start a riot. You don’t like a pride parade, don’t show up. If you show up with a plan to disrupt the parafe, you should be charged.
