The Brew: Seems the Big Guy Forgot to Tell Us the FBI Came Knockin’ in November

"I tied a string around this finger to remind me to tell you something about the FBI and, you know, the thing. Oh wait. I forgot to tie the string."

Welcome to February!

It might be hard reading today’s Brew through all the wool that the White House is trying to pull over your eyes.

What? FBI Searched Penn Biden Center After Classified Documents Discovery. Why Didn’t We Know That?

Seems the Big Guy and the White House have been hiding a dirty little secret. FBI agents scoured the Penn Biden Center in November after Biden’s lawyers discovered classified documents stored there. CBS News first reported the news. For closing in on three months, the White House kept that secret from the American people. As did Joe Biden. As did the DOJ.

Your double-standard at work again. No leak to CNN to make sure they had cameras set when the agents arrived. No splashy photos of what they found.

Actually, it’s unknown what, if anything, the FBI found. Fox News says a warrant was not involved. Biden’s clean up team consented to the search. It’s also curious: Now that we know the FBI was actively involved in November, why did they wait until January to search the Wilmington house?

The White House insists it has been transparent about the discovery of classified documents wherever Biden has set his weary feet. And contrary to what others are saying, I say they have been transparent. As in, we can see right through them.

But kudos to CBS News for digging deeper and deeper into this story. Here’s praying they have the guts to go all the way. For the sake of truth … and for the sake of journalism itself.

If True, Oh, the Interesting Possibilities

Gateway Pundit has a doozy of a story. Possibly related to the Biden classified document scandal … after all, documents involving Ukraine were found at the Penn Biden Center … and definitely related to the Hunter laptop story. Perhaps it’s one of the reasons the Deep State worked so hard to suppress it.

It seems that within two days of Russia invading Ukraine, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy ordered the destruction of all government files at a biological research company called Metabiota.

You want to guess who raised millions for Metabiota and was a heavy investor? If you said “Hunter Biden,” you win.

The Daily Mail described Metabiota as a “Department of Defense contractor specializing in research on pandemic-causing diseases that could be used as bioweapons.” Russia claimed last March that Metabiota was a DoD “bioweapons” lab. Propaganda, we were told.

Now we know that as soon as the Russians crossed the border, Zelenskyy was ordering files at the facility partially financed by Biden, Inc., destroyed.

We keep wondering what hold Zelenskyy has on Biden that he’d be emptying our stockpiles, sending our tanks, positioning our soldiers, spending insane amounts of our treasure to do Zelenskyy’s bidding.

Are we one step closer to knowing?

Better find out soon. Reuters reported Tuesday Biden’s sending another $2.2 billion in aid with longer-range missiles.


Speaking of Dirty Little Secrets

Hunter Biden forced a female assistant to perform sex acts on camera and put a camera in her shower in order to get back pay and health insurance she believed she was owed. That according to emails found on Hunter’s laptop. Daily Mail broke the story, but the Gateway Pundit version is more “safe for work” as they say.

Just remember, Don Jr. spent three years under federal investigation and was dragged through the media mud simply for talking to a Russian lawyer for 10 minutes about adoption laws.


Biden Announces COVID Emergency Will End on May 11th. Or Is It the 15th?

Joe Biden informed Congress Monday that he’ll end the two national emergency declarations for addressing COVID-19 on May 11. That’d be about seven months after he said the pandemic was over.

He was asked about it Tuesday. And made little sense. And got the date wrong.

In a story totally unrelated to COVID or COVID vaccinations, MSNBC host Yasmin Vossoughian explained to viewers Sunday why she’d been off the air. She’d had a health scare. In December 2021, Yasmin developed pericarditis and then myocarditis. The cause? A “common cold.”

Yeah, she’s one of those who boasted on social media about getting the jab.

Glad to see Yasmin is a “Reappear Suddenly,” rather than, well, you know.


Santos Steps Down From Committee Assignments

Embattled freshman Congressman and serial liar George Santos told Republican colleagues he’s stepping down from his brand new committee assignments amid an ethics probe.

Santos says he wants to concentrate on “my suddenly crucial role as the 49er’s fifth string quarterback.” Actually, he reportedly told the GOP he is backing away temporarily until his ethics issues are resolved.

Santos has been facing enormous pressure to resign from colleagues, local GOP leaders, and even his own constituents. But he’s not budging. So, barring any surprise in the next 48 hours, Santos will last in Congress a month and won’t be the shortest serving congressman since the dawn of the 20th century.

But Still the Reigning Champ …

Sure, Santos has lit up the scoreboard with a tally of his lies and life fables. But he’s got nothing on the GOAT. We started with Biden’s insistence that he’s being transparent and takes classification “very seriously.” We end with something not so serious.

Once again on Monday, Joe Biden repeated his Amtrak tale that has been routinely and unquestionably debunked. Six times now during his presidency.

It deals with a charming encounter the VP had with his conductor friend Ange Negri. One day, Biden’s “friend” congratulated him for marking 1.2 million miles on Air Force Two. Ange then informed Biden that the politician had traveled 2.2 million miles via Amtrak. Great times, eh?

Only problem: Negri retired from Amtrak 15 years before Biden became VP. And died a year before the White House commemorated Biden’s 1 millionth Air Force Two mile.

A couplet from Steve Martin’s “Daddy Played the Banjo” springs to mind:

“Now the banjo takes me back, through the foggy haze,
With memories of what never was, become the good old days.”
