UPDATED: How Bad Will BidenGate Get?

OK, I freely admit that's not a very clever moniker for the Biden scandal. If you've got a better one, let me know. And don't try LaptopGate. That's totally lame. And it has to be family friendly.

Anyway, my guess is that this will get VERY bad. A selection of titles from TGP will give you the idea of how bad it is already--well before the Big Drop date. Most of these titles work off a Steve Bannon interview, but Bannon's statements appear to be corroborated by the NYPost, which is so far leading the charge. 


Oh Boy: Hunter Biden’s Computer Camera Roll Turned Over to Bannon and Giuliani Contains 25,000 Images With Sexually Explicit Selfies and Porn


According to the blog and Bannon--and confirmed by the NYPost--the 25K WORTH OF IMAGES portrays "a drug-addled, depraved lifestyle." I'll bet they do!

Then there's this:


WOW! Crooked Joe Biden to Go into Hiding Starting Monday Until Debate on Thursday Night — in Final Weeks Before Election!


That's confirmed by CBS:

CBS's Ed O'Keefe on Face The Nation: "[Joe Biden] will not be seen again after today until Thursday night." REMINDER: Joe Biden and his campaign have not disputed the authenticity of the bombshell emails which detail the extensive corruption of the Biden family.

Now, they say the retreat to the basement is all about debate prep. Me neither. But what kind of damage control is this? Looks like more self inflicted damage to me, but that's what you end up doing when you're jammed up by the truth.

How wild will it all get? This wild:


WARNING: Liberal Groups Caught Posting Fake Photos Online So They Can Claim the Hunter Biden Stories Recently Uncovered Are Conspiracies


Meanwhile, in an interview with The Revolver, Bannon promised that there's much more to come. Can we bear it? Oh, what the hell ...

Revolver: Is there any reason to expect that the contents of the hard drive will be revealed before the election? If yes, will people actually care enough for it to substantially affect the outcome?

Mr. Bannon: The Bidens are about to be hit with multiple stories from multiple media sources based off evidence beyond the hard drive. Fox and Peter Schweitzer have already started but bigger more mainstream companies are going to weigh in. We already have set in motion the various apparatuses that will release everything.

Revolver: What are your thoughts on the efforts to discredit the hard drive as “Russian disinformation?” Is there any evidence this is Russian disinformation at all? At any rate, what matters is not whether Biden-supporting media calls it “disinformation” — what matters is whether it’s true. Has the Biden camp explicitly denied the factual accusations pertaining to the hard drives?

Mr. Bannon: Rupert Murdoch’s team at the NY Post is as sophisticated and tough as there is in all media. They had the metadata and they signed off to go forward. The Russia excuse — and it is an excuse — collapsed when Fox verified the information with someone on the email chain. The Biden campaign has yet to say these emails or photos are not real. The reason? Hunter’s lawyer sent emails trying to recover the hard drive. These are real — the Bidens know they are real — and they are going to have to deal with that reality.

Finally, Howie Carr has an article, behind an adblocker, that's a real must read Fear and loathing in the Biden Crime Family. It's totally devastating and shows--for anyone with half a brain--that Hunter was nothing but the bagman for "The Big Guy." The decades long influence peddling was Joe Biden's baby.

A particularly fascinating portion reveals how the Biden campaign attempted to innoculate Biden from his son. Good luck with that! But they tried:


Dementia Joe’s keepers have always understood that Hunter was capable of getting Pop into this kind of a jam. That’s how far gone Hunter Biden is. 

Which is why last year they commissioned one of their Democrat stenographers with a press pass to try to inoculate the campaign. The Bidens ordered up a sob story about Hunter in one of their party organs called The New Yorker

At the beginning, the obsequious scribe engaged in that Democrat tradition of projection, accusing the Republicans of everything he was up to, “promoting, without evidence, the dubious narrative that Biden used the office of the Vice-President to advance and protect his son’s interests.” 

Dubious? Again, Biden hasn’t denied anything. Without evidence? Ditto. And as we know now, it’s not just his son’s interests “Pop” is protecting — Hunter told his own kid he’s kicking up half to the old man.


But that's just scratching the surface of an incredibly devastating article.

The Dems may have thought that "pee tape" hoax was funny at the time. Who'll laugh last now?

UPDATE: Very clever: Pardon Joe Biden Now! I suppose the right way to go about it would be to offer him a pardon. If he turns it down, well, he's open for prosecution.

  2. I still maintain that its not that harmful to his campaign to disappear:
    1-the media continues to blackball the stories anyway. And for an LIV who could be persuaded, it DOES matter that CNNBCBSWPNYT et al are not even mentioning it. Its not swaying any of us because we're already decided.

    2-unless there is a smoking gun to Joe himself and they cut this slow drip crap out, what little obligatory coverage the media brothels are forced to do will be under the guise of trying to smear Joe with the well-known hooker and blow adventures of his son.

  3. I am trying to nail a detail down, and your readers are the most informed around- it concerns the attempt by Biden's lawyer to retrieve the laptop from Isaac.

    Giuliani said that the lawyer attempted this on Tuesday- the day before the NYPost story landed. Now, I am sure the NYPost reporters contacted Biden and asked for commentary, and I seriously doubt they gave him the article as it appeared in Wednesday's newspaper, so, did the reporters tell Biden and his lawyers about Isaac's connection to the laptop?

    It matters because if the Post reporters didn't tell Biden this on Monday or Tuesday, or whenever they first contacted him, then it demonstrates that Hunter Biden knew where the laptop came from and told his lawyers to go retrieve it.

  4. If Biden wins the election, Harris' people will see to it that the laptop story does not disappear from the media. It will probably happen this way if Biden wins:

    Biden attends the inauguration and is sworn in, then around the end of January, the NYTimes does their first in depth story on the laptop that "reluntantly" admits that the data is real and that Biden likely was on the take using Hunter as a bagman. An editorial will then be written after about a month that for the good of the country, Biden needs to resign- it will be proclaimed as the non-Trump thing to do.

  9. Grew up in Wilmington, Del and became familiar with the “Delaware Way” over time. Mostly “harmless” corruption but the Bidens have obviously upped their game. My first thought on these revelations was how great turning the tables on these people must feel for Trump after the incredible abuse foisted on him and his family. Then I read some more about Hunter and while a grown man how difficult it has to be seeing your son go through this-6 times in rehab. Then today I realize that Joe Biden has at some level enabled this lifestyle and what kind of father does this? I am more disgusted than ever with the big guy.

  12. I’m astonished a liberal group would upload fake pictures as a way to discredit the laptop. Very unethical. It goes along with Harry Reid’s comment on his Romney tax lie “he lost, didn’t he”.

    The LA Times in their main section did a great job of I think page 25 of mentioning the scandal with no details. It was a work of art. Key term was unverified allegations about a Hunter Biden. Article talked of how much trouble Twitter was in for blocking the story / scandal. I saw this at my parents house, they still subscribe. Fortunately I had sent Tucker’s video of him explaining the scandal already to my parents.

    News media has a choice, either continue to block the story and chance having their credibility destroyed along with Bidens. And Trump Will get around the media wall of silence and destroy the Bidens credibility, and especially show their collusion with China. Russia / Ukraine I don’t see moving voters, to confusing, China on the other hand will move voters. There is lots of anger over lost jobs to China among blue collar voters.

    4. @ EZ

      If his point is that we don't know what the FBI may be investigating, that's true. But it's also pretty much beside the point when we're dealing with material in the public field of politics now. And with emails already released that show clearly that both Hunter and "Pop" were running a pay to play scheme with Ukraine and China.

      Delete
    5. SWC is making the distinction, IMHO, because there is an active discreditation campaign underway to suck stupid Trump supporters into believing fake drug snorting or CP photos are on Hunter's laptop. To the extent Trump supporters get caught up in the fake stiff, it will be used to discredit ALL claims about illegal behavior, even that which is real.

      Delete
    6. In fact that wasn't my point.

      I expect the Biden campaign to throw Hunter Biden under the bus if necessary. Their media henchmen will do all they can to smother it, but there's a danger in attempting to hang on Joe Biden some of his son's behavior over which he has no control, and over which fair-minded people would not expect him to.

      Are you out of your mind? Hunter Biden was/is Joe Biden's Bagman. The millions of dollars that Hunter blew on drugs, prostitution, and likely other criminal activity was financed entirely by the fruits of Joe Biden's criminal influence peddling schemes--we've seen the email evidence of that. What kind of father involves his son in criminal activity, sees the fruits of that criminality financing his son's life of depravity and criminality, sees his son going in and out of rehab his entire adult life and ... just keeps going on? Knowing that his own criminality is financing his son's downward spiral?

    12. Mark, not sure its necessary to go after Anon above - he is simply saying how the optics go. We all agree its gross. To the degree, however, that the media brothels can position the salacious stuff up front - they get to brush aside the connective tissue to the father for corruption.

      In fact, I would bet money they position almost identically to what you said above: "Do you have any moral conscience yourself?" - e.g. - how could you mean-spirited republicans drag a kid, who has a known problem, through the mud, to try and besmirch Biden??? Haven't you any integrity??? To an LIV, the salacious hookers and blow stories overpower the rest, and it seems like you're trying to hang it on the poor old man who tried so hard to keep his son in line.

      This is why I keep saying (not like Giuliani or anyone else would care what I say) that unless they have a smoking gun email or spreadsheet and unless they release it ASAP and stop the drip drip - this is going to be a wash. The media borthels know that only LIV's are persuadable right now. and they own that conduit.

    13. Couldn’t agree more re fitness for office. I think hammering home this point about father enabling son’s depravity will resonate with some suburban women taken in by decent Joe. Also, how criminally incompetent were Joe’s advisers when they did not take control of every device Hunter ever had and wiped every online activity in last few years? They certainly knew what a time bomb this guy was.

    14. @ Anon @ 5:46

      To some extent I agree in that, being unable to refute the LT/HD data directly, the media will attempt to bury the corruption of the family under a mountain of salacious mat'l meant to distract from, if not outright hide, Ol' Joe's evil. Giuliani has to be careful not to let them steal the initiative.

      @ MjH @ 6:01

      "Also, how criminally incompetent were Joe’s advisers when they did not take control of every device Hunter ever had...."

      Ol' Joe was working a grift with the kind of people that don't let you just walk away. However flawed a courier Hunter might have been Joe still needed him rather than recruit someone outside the family.

      That being said I'm thinking some Dem donors want the head of the person that sold them on Joe as their best shot on a pike.

  24. I've commented previously that the documentary evidence available to Durham is, in itself, sufficient to obtain convictions in many of the cases that will be forthcoming. And rather than put the nation through a long nightmare of embarrassing trials of dozens of government officials, a determined effort is underway to secure guilty pleas from many of the lesser participants, and this will include some pretty high level people in the Executive Branch. Their role will largely be focused on establishing the reality of the coup for public consumption rather than trial assistance.

    But more specifically, after the extent of the Obama Administration's corruption becomes evident through revelations such as those that will be forthcoming, e.g. Hunter Biden et al., the attempted coup will pale into insignificance. That is how bad the corruption in DC has become. Trump himself has implied that it may not be feasible to fully reveal all that has happened, lest it could tear the country apart.

    Rocky road ahead.

  25. Crackgate is going to be a train wreck, it's my least favorite type of political reporting but like the national enquirer people seem to eat it up.

    I said the other day this will end up dominating the news cycle and guys like Steve B and Rudy G will tick tock this to death. Just dump the data, you've more info than you can possibly sort. Let the reddit and 4chan kids have at it.

    Somethings I did pick up on worth noting is Devon Archer + another currently unnamed participant rolling over on team Biden.

    The other is the Chinese connection, there is an apparent Chinese official to Hunter connection peddling young girls in advance of visits.

    That's the type of drama that makes fox news headlines.
