“I encouraged them [The Intercept] to air their disagreements with me by writing their own articles that critique my perspectives and letting readers decide who is right, the way any confident and healthy media outlet would… So censorship of my article, rather than engagement with it, was the path these Biden-supporting editors chose.”- Glenn Greenwald- The Intercept (Resignation letter: Oct 29, 2020)
There are less than twenty-four hours until election day, 2020.
With presidential candidate Joseph Biden purportedly within grasp of the reins of power, he is this hour in the deepest trouble of his political career. In the power politics of scandal, minutes can hang like hours and days become the stuff of history. As of this day, Nov 2, 2020, Biden is about to be the different participant of US history, a likely criminal investigation, and the wrath of the American voter.
As the author highlighted earlier last week, Biden was then seemingly in deep water due to the mounting allegations of political duplicity. On that day, Wednesday, his only saving grace hinged on the success of the ongoing massive media cover-up by virtually the whole of mainstream – and alternative- media. Biden’s hope was that the voter would remain unaware or disinterested in ascertaining the truth in the final days before to the national election of this Tuesday.
It ain’t working.
Instead, the continued corroboration of the Biden allegations over the past three days appears to be shaping up to make the Watergate break-in of June 17, 1972, seem like a before bedtime, Biden basement nap .
The far too few publications that still feature real journalism, such as the one you are reading now, have helped to force, in just the past three days, the hand of MSM into action that now reluctantly reports the Biden family pay-to-play conspiracy. In doing so, these dedicated publications and their editors have also created a further indictment of MSM and showed themselves by this reflection as the only news services remaining worthy of public trust.
Fox News and The New York Post, although instrumental in the initial release and propagation of the allegations, should not be lumped into this distinguished group. Both were the mercenaries for this last-minute Trump hit job and although substantially accurate in this reporting, their agenda is obvious.
Ironically, thanks must also be heaped upon MSM. If not for the massive censorship- newspaper, radio, TV, internet and social media– perpetrated by the editorial management of virtually every other American media source, the smell of corruption would not have exponentially increased so rapidly into a stench that the American public -and now MSM- can no longer afford to stay upwind from.
In the few days since Wednesday’s article, much additional news of the censored allegations has surfaced. This has not only bolstered the suspicions against Biden but also showed to the awakened reader that this story must be fully investigated. Today, this is no longer mere suspicion. In the minds of the voter, now hours from the election, this is an outrage that will transcend election day no matter the result.
The past seventy-two hours of new revelations come in three categories: Increased censorship; continued Corroboration of the previous week’s allegations; and the sudden, albeit reluctant, shift by MSM to finally do its job of reporting.
Number three spells Biden’s doom.
Despite a large percentage of voters having cast their ballots by mail, for those who have not and are awakening to the growing scandal, who remaining would, tomorrow support, Biden’s candidacy?
Win or lose.
A Brief Background.
Many Americans are, due to this censorship, just now tuning in. Offered here is a very abridged synopsis of the allegations and cover-up as of the article three days ago. The reader is encouraged to delve much further.
Joe Biden’s son, Hunter left three laptops for repair with Delaware computer repairman John Paul Mac Isaac and then failed to pick them up, but Mac Isaac discovered information revealing a possible Biden family influence-peddling operation- and Hunters predilection for Kiddie porn- and gave it all to the FBI which buried it, but Mac Isaac had kept a copy of the hard drive and next turned it over to Trump’s key hitman Rudy Giuliani, who gave it to the New York Post, who released the details to the public.
Next, a convicted business associate Bevan Cooney, donated his laptop to investigators which contained 26,000 emails, many of which supported the initial claims by the NYP, so much so that Cooney is now in witness protection.
Then up stepped Tony Bobulinski, also a Biden business associate who, in a Fox News interview with Tucker Carlson (the highest-rated event in Fox News history) confirmed the revelations of the two previous laptops by providing his own emails that appear to corroborate a direct link to Biden during the time he was VP.
Next came the surreptitiously leaked report by Christopher Balding, Associate Professor at Peking University who reportedly is a contributor to the anti-Trump Bloomberg News, on behalf of an anonymous source, who had provided a very detailed sixty-five-page report also linking Biden to the other three sets of allegations.
Three days ago, all these four reports were being buried by MSM and alternative media collectively and had not come under the proper microscope of examination.
Today, that is no longer the case. The allegations against the Bidens, as this article will highlight, are now very much being substantiated: as is the complicit criminal conspiracy by the breadth of American media. And, the death of Joe Biden’s presidential aspirations.
On Thursday, Oct 29,2020, the Senate Judiciary Committee convened a special session to draw and quarter the CEOs of Twitter, Facebook, Google: Jack Dorsey, Mark Zuckerberg, and Sundar Pichai, for their willful if not admitted social media censorship. As expected, the Dems on the committee, such as Illinois senator Tammy Duckworth, threw softballs to their campaign donors. However, republican Ted Cruz, in his opener, called the three social media giants “the single greatest threat to free speech in America” and in particular called Twitter the “most egregious.” Taking direct aim at Dorsey he charged,
“Mr Dorsey, who the hell elected you and put you in charge of what the media are allowed to report and what the American people are allowed to hear, and why do you persist in behaving as a Democratic super PAC silencing views to the contrary of your political beliefs?”
The best Dorsey could do was deflect, offering,
“We realized we need to earn trust more… So, I hear the concerns and acknowledge them, but we want to fix it with more transparency.”
Dorsey’s statement was, of course, utter bullshit.
Twitter instead continued its censorship of all of the New York Post’s investigative coverage for a further three of the final six pre-election days: Sixteen in total. Dorsey’s lie was not lost on the viewers, who have increasingly tuned into Fox News and the NYP. Apparently, many of these people were also Twitter stockholders since after Thursday’s committee hearing Twitter’s share price plummeted more than 5% and was down 18% by Friday.
As a succinct example of the complicity of the alternative media blackout, the very public resignation by the co-founder and usually exceptional journalist from The Intercept, Glenn Greenwald, threw gasoline on to the fire regarding media censorship. Greenwald not only released his resignation letter, but also the article within which he had authored his assessment of the Biden charges and which the editorial staff had forced him not to publish and worse, despite the terms of his contract, not to publish elsewhere. This was absolutely outrageous for an investigative news publication featuring itself as alternative. Wrote Greenwald,
“I had no objection to their disagreement with my views of what this Biden evidence shows: as a last-ditch attempt to avoid being censored, I encouraged them to air their disagreements with me by writing their own articles that critique my perspectives and letting readers decide who is right, the way any confident and healthy media outlet would.”
In one sentence Greenwald summed up the strongest charge against the overall problem with almost all of the American media, stating,
“… modern media outlets do not air dissent; they quash it.”
This reporter can attest to the accuracy of Greenwald’s charge. In reviewing some fifty-plus mainstream and alternative media sources at random in the preparation of this article, only this publication and four others, as of three days ago, had chosen to favour good journalism over blanket censorship.
Even the email content sharing website Mail Chimp decided to take the mortida. Just in time for the campaign’s final week Mail Chimp pulled “a Dorsey,” sending to all its customers an outrageous claim to its right to censor anything at his volition, saying that Mail Chimp,
“does not allow the distribution of content that is, in our sole discretion, materially false, inaccurate, or misleading, in a way that could deceive or confuse others about important events, topics, or circumstances.” [Emph. Added]
This author can attest to the truth of this claim since the article of three days ago was magically eliminated from Mail Chimp that day, as was also the case by Twitter.
Also challenging the author’s article of Oct 29, which listed the Biden related allegations, was “Senior Editor,” Gordon Duff of the relatively tiny alternative media news site, Veteran’s Today. He championed his editorial role as a censor in a scathing attack on the author. Asked in reply to, “please provide just one fact that will refute the allegations against Biden,” his one-line refusal spoke volumes.
“It is not our job to refute the allegations…It is your job to prove them.”
This was already proving too easy.
Biden may swing, but so should Dorsey, Zuckerberg, Sundar Pichai, and small fry like Duff. Media editors have cowardly, by this evidence, participated in their own pay-to-play operation.
A treason to the obligations of a free press… if not the nation.
Corroboration of the Previous Week’s Allegations.
The past three days have been very long ones for Joe Biden.
On Wed Oct 28, the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee confirmed that the information exposed by former Hunter Biden business associate Tony Bobulinski is legitimate and does connect the former Vice President to his son’s companies and ventures in China and elsewhere.
According to Bobulinski, Biden, when he asked him as VP about possible damage control, cited “Plausible Deniability.” On Wednesday, that excuse evaporated right before the eyes of nine million viewers who watched his testimony with Tucker Carlson.
Next, on the same day, the FBI acknowledged that it had already launched an investigation, apparently very slowly, into money laundering allegations against Hunter Biden and his uncle, Jim, the brother of the “Big Guy.”
This news comes a week after the FBI also admitted, after months of silence, that the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop provide to them by Mac Isaac has now been subpoenaed by its top Child Porn investigator, Joshua Wilson, and that this investigation is also underway. It will not likely, thanks to growing public awareness, only be limited to Hunter Biden.
The detailed report leaked to the press by Christopher Balding, which was initially completely ignored, has also taken on its own life and further exposed the complicity of the media. A supposed NBC news “investigation” of that report, next blew up in the face of NBC.
According to NBC, the report’s author name, “Martin Aspen,” is a fabricated identity and his photograph is a “deep fake’ composite generated by artificial intelligence.”
This was all true. But, there was one huge problem with this self-serving truth.
When the report was first released on Oct 21, Balding who admitted to being the leaker had also immediately made clear that the author’s name was deliberately a nom de plume and that he was only very partially responsible for the report’s contents. Further, the use of the origin, Typhoon Investigations, was also made clear as being part of the need to keep the true source and author anonymous. This investigative report was NBC trying to turn the facts of the matter on their heads in favour of Biden without a bald-faced lie: merely a massive one of near-complete omission.
But the legitimacy of the report and damage control for NBC has only increased. What NBC did not expect would be the reaction was for Balding, just two days ago, on Oct 30, to go public about his release of the report. Balding has assured NBC that the report is genuine, that the source, like Bevan Cooney, fears for his/her life, and that they did at the time of the release state this to all concerned about the report’s validity. To protect his source, Balding has made himself available to the press and to investigators.
It should be noted that, when reviewing the report, it is remarkably similar in its connections as those of Bobulinski, Mac Isaac, and Cooney. However, it is by far more detailed and professionally produced.
So, here we are just one day from the election. The FBI is finally in gear. Twice. The Bobulinski evidence has been scrutinized as legit and neither Joe Biden nor his staff has denied the revelations regarding the contents of the two laptops being held as evidence. Further, Balding’s detailed report that he leaked to the press is growing legs. That’s four for four, all of which the media tried their best to cover-up. As of this day, the chances of an investigation of the Biden clan are rising by the hour.
However, as of Saturday, Oct 31, the tide has now turned against Biden because…so has the media!
The Main Stream Media Finally Does its Job?
Without a media cover-up, Joe Biden is about to become the new Richard Nixon. It should be remembered that for Nixon, it was not the mere burglary of the Watergate hotel by a bumbling crew of party loyalists that took him down, it was the conspiracy to create the cover-up at the highest levels.
The first signs of a shift in media loyalty were first delivered by the New York Times reporter Ross Douthat, on Oct 27. All though watered down, apparently, the NYT was suddenly unwilling to continue its participation in this conspiracy and by extension further destroy its already waning respectability. As the first turncoat, the article did summarize, without admission of guilt, the New York Post’s basic allegations.
Next, CNN- yes, CNN- the most loyal of DNC media performers allowed its prime-time Jake Tapper to assess that Biden’s Burisma connection “stinks.” But next, eyebrows across the beltway were raised when CNN followed that up with something even more surprising: An opinion piece by Scott Jennings that argue that Trump deserves a second term. This is a tectonic shift by a media outlet that has spent the better part of two years promoting one, and only one, candidate, Joe Biden.
As the allegations continue their downhill cascade toward Biden, it would appear that the only chance of salvation for him is now an outright Trump victory on Tuesday night and Trump’s possible choice not to prosecute as he did in 2016 for arch DNC criminal Hillary Clinton. Should Biden win, there is zero chance of his dual loyalty not being used to thwart his presidency.
Of course, a Trump win is anathema to the DNC that has executed blood, treasure- and Bernie Sanders- in their collective effort to get Biden to the finish line no matter what.
Regardless, the irony of the media’s massive censorship coup against a presidential candidate, instead, thus taking down the other candidate, will be the stuff of political history.
Freedom in elections comes with from a vibrant media. Both are as dead as Joe Biden’s aspirations for president.
