#Election2020: Joe Contradicts Hunter as Scandal Takes Creepier, Darker Turn
It’s 13 days until America decides its fate and both candidates are hitting the campaign trail hard. Well, one is hitting the trail. The other is hitting the snooze button.
Joe Biden is spending another day at his home in Delaware away from voters.
I ask you, undecided voter: Who would hire somebody who repeatedly refuses to show up for the job interviews? And we’re hiring for the most important job in the world.
Meanwhile, the scandal surrounding Joe, Hunter and the rest of Biden, Inc., mushrooms. And grows ominous.
Biden Tries to Rebuff Scandal, Contradicts Hunter and Proof
Joe Biden did finally answer a question from Wisconsin TV station WISN about the evidence on Hunter Biden’s laptop. Biden says there is “no basis” to believe claims Hunter Biden profited off his family name.
The bad news? Hunter Biden himself admitted last year that he has, in fact, profited off his family name. “I don’t think that there’s a lot of things that would have happened in my life if my last name wasn’t Biden,” he told ABC News, adding, “because my dad was Vice President of the United States.”
Further, new emails out yesterday show that Hunter’s business partners saw his name as “currency.” In fact, as a direct line into the Obama White House.
The NY Post revealed emails that indicate Hunter was paid $10 million a year by the Chinese for “introductions only.”
State Department documents also show Burisma, paying Hunter $83,000 a month, was dropping Hunter’s name to U.S. officials there. The goal? To get the U.S. to pressure Ukraine to stop its Burisma investigation. Hunter himself planned meetings with State over Burisma. Is the State Department going to meet with a Hunter Lipschitz about a corrupt Ukraine company?
That’s just a small list. And Joe insists there’s “no basis” to say Hunter profited from his father’s positions?
Joe Lies About Intel Community
Biden also made the bizarre claim that the intelligence community has cleared his family of wrongdoing. That is a blatant lie. In fact, the only thing the Intel Community is saying is that there is zero evidence of Russian involvement. Joe is likely referring to 50 former intel officials who signed a letter claiming the Hunter Laptop scandal smells like a Russian disinformation campaign.
Point One: There is zero evidence for their claim. Or one of the 50 intel officials would have presented it. Instead they merely offered the verdict of Deep State groupthink.
Point Two: Both former CIA director John Brennan and former Director of National Intelligence John Clapper signed the letter. Both are neck deep in the Trump Russia hoax. And both have a proven history of saying one thing publicly to condemn Trump and Russia connections, and another when under oath. “Trump’s compromised by Russia!” they harp on CNN and MSNBC. “Uh, we’ve seen no proof of any Trump-Russia connection,” they say under threat of perjury.
Frankly, anyone who takes seriously anything Brennan and Clapper have to say other than “I confess” is deluded or brain dead.
The Scandal Takes Darker, More Perverse Turn
Political corruption is one thing. Depravity involving children takes this scandal somewhere much darker and sadder.
Rudy Giuliani revealed last night that he turned over to Delaware police sexually explicit texts and photos involving Hunter Biden and a 14-year-old girl. (Along with a text exchange with his father about it. He said Hunter Biden’s laptop contained “numerous pictures” of underaged girls. )
One America News reports they too have seen the images.
We can confirm:
There appear to be not one but several images of a minor that justify immediate attention.
We have reason to believe the minor is a US citizen.

Delaware Senate candidate Lauren Witzke tweeted that a police source confirmed the laptop contained child pornography. Her thread went on to say the laptop/hardrive was turned over to New Castle County PD, who turned it over to “leftist” Delaware Attorney Kathy Jennings, who turned it over to the FBI Wilmington office. Of course, the FBI has had the laptop for almost a year at this point. Is the buck being passed so it could be dumped in the Swamp?

But Does It Tie To Joe?
In the best of situations, this news would be bad, if you were Hunter Biden’s father. However, when you yourself have a well-documented history of uncomfortable — okay, say it, creepy — behavior toward young girls, there is no way your history doesn’t become more ominous. And become a campaign issue.
Dinesh D’Souza pointed this out on Twitter this morning.
Jos Biden’s pawing and sniffing of little girls—which Biden himself attributed to his harmless affectionate style—takes on an ominous new significance now that we know Hunter Biden is a pedophile. I wonder if the son learned his perverted habits from the father pic.twitter.com/kvgNCJZkhY

It is a very harsh and dark place to go. And we do need to know more about what has been found on Hunter’s computer, what Joe Biden knew, and when. We know from the Senate report on Hunter Biden’s activities that he was engaged with prostitutes connected to human trafficking. Were any under age? Just how open was Joe Biden to blackmail? How much at risk was national security?
And, of course, we must be praying for all the young girls allegedly involved; that they will be identified and assisted. And if any trafficking’s involved, these girls will be rescued and restored.
Politics can be a game. This is no game.
Staying in the basement may be cynical political strategy. But the Bidens must be dragged out of the shadows and into the light.
