There is quite a bit going on here. Let’s start chronologically. First came the NY Post story, which was published at 5:00am and had this headline:
Here’s an excerpt of the article, and I want to spend some time on it because despite the ensuing chaos, the article itself is important:
Hunter Biden introduced his father, then-Vice President Joe Biden, to a top executive at a Ukrainian energy firm less than a year before the elder Biden pressured government officials in Ukraine into firing a prosecutor who was investigating the company, according to emails obtained by The Post.
The never-before-revealed meeting is mentioned in a message of appreciation that Vadym Pozharskyi, an adviser to the board of Burisma, allegedly sent Hunter Biden on April 17, 2015, about a year after Hunter joined the Burisma board at a reported salary of up to $50,000 a month.
“Dear Hunter, thank you for inviting me to DC and giving an opportunity to meet your father and spent [sic] some time together. It’s realty [sic] an honor and pleasure,” the email reads.
An earlier email from May 2014 also shows Pozharskyi, reportedly Burisma’s No. 3 exec, asking Hunter for “advice on how you could use your influence” on the company’s behalf.
The blockbuster correspondence — which flies in the face of Joe Biden’s claim that he’s “never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings” — is contained in a massive trove of data recovered from a laptop computer.
The computer was dropped off at a repair shop in Biden’s home state of Delaware in April 2019, according to the store’s owner.
So this confirms what we all know: the only reason Hunter Biden was appointed to the Burisma board and given a ridiculous $50k a month salary despite having zero qualifications is–and this may shock you–because Hunter’s dad was the Vice President of the United States and they wanted buy influence with Joe.
I’d say this tweet from Danielle D’Souza (Dinesh’s daughter) about sums things up:
But that’s not all. Now the story takes a turn for the bizarre:
Other material extracted from the computer includes a raunchy, 12-minute video that appears to show Hunter, who’s admitted struggling with addiction problems, smoking crack while engaged in a sex act with an unidentified woman, as well as numerous other sexually explicit images.
The Hunter photos are floating around online. Here’s one of Hunter asleep with a crack pipe in his mouth:
This is just wild. Just imagine if this was Don Jr. or Eric Trump. It would be one of the biggest scandals in the history of the United States. It would be all over the place. Wall-to-wall media coverage, wailing about how the Trump family has sullied the White House, non-stop lampooning on late night talk shows and SNL, etc.
But instead, Big Tech has taken swift, decisive action to completely shut the story down. NY Post Editor Sohrab Ahmari shared this screenshot:
“Your Tweet couldn’t be sent because this link has been identified by Twitter or our partners as being potentially harmful.”
Yeah–harmful to the Biden campaign.
Another NYPost reporter elaborated further on Twitter’s move:
“The Hunter Biden stories violate its rules against ‘distribution of hacked material,” apparently.
So it’s not that the Hunter Biden story is false, it’s how it got leaked. Ace of Spades summed it up well: “They have never done this with any of the 8,000 anti-Trump “bombshells” that were soon proven false. But this one, they’re censoring.”
The “Spreading Leaked Information BAD Switch” has now been turned ON. It was OFF, however, for all the Trump-Russia anonymous leaks.
Facebook is also censoring it, although they euphemize it as “reducing distribution” of the Post’s article.
This is how Big Tech Fascism arrives: hidden behind seemingly innocuous Newspeak terms like “reducing distribution.”
Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) commented on the significance of Twitter locking the account of the NY Post, saying “Has Twitter ever locked the account of a major news outlet? Why is Twitter attacking the free press.” We’re in unprecedented territory here. It feels like Big Tech is getting bolder in its censorship with each passing year.
I wonder, though, if Big Tech hadn’t immediately hit the panic button on this story, if it would have been as big a deal as it has become. Mike Cernovich pointed out that Big Tech censorship, rather than Hunter Biden, has now become the bigger story:
They crossed the digital Rubicon. Exactly right.
The NYPost’s editorial board had this to say about it all:
No one is disputing the veracity of The Post’s story — not even Hunter Biden. His lawyer George R. Mesires wouldn’t deign to comment on the reporting, simply attacking the messenger. The Biden campaign did the same, dismissing it all as “discredited,” while saying that no meeting showed up on Joe Biden’s official schedule on those dates. (Well, if it wasn’t “official,” guess it didn’t happen.)
Yet Facebook is deliberately trying to keep its users from reading and deciding for themselves what it means.
This when it did nothing to restrict access to the recent New York Times story on President Trump’s tax returns. And the Times didn’t say a word about how it obtained that confidential personal data.
An executive of one of the most powerful media platforms in the country, who brags about his years working as a partisan Democratic operative, publicly boasting of his attempt to keep Americans from learning something embarrassing about the Democratic presidential candidate. Facebook isn’t a media platform. It’s a propaganda machine.
Yeah, but the leaked Trump tax returns were OK because Trump Bad. The leaked Hunter Emails are bad because Biden Good.
Of course, Blue Check Journalists, the Power Establishment’s enforcers of dogma and silencers of dissent, are trying their hardest to make sure nobody sees the Hunter Biden story:
Yes, Kyle, tell us more about those “obvious flaws,” which are so obvious that nobody is even mentioning them.
That old saw about how journalists are supposed to “afflict the comfortable and comfort the afflicted,” has now been turned on its head. “Journalism” now is about afflicting the afflicted and comforting the comfortable.
Anyone with a functioning brain could see this coming years ago. After Trump won in 2016, the entire Power Establishment–the career politicians, the media, tech, Hollywood, deep state, Fortune 500, academia, etc.–decided that they were going to do whatever it took to not only get Trump out of office ASAP, but ensure they never lost control of the White House to an outsider again.
Even if it meant lying, killing free speech, corrupting the youth, provoking violence and chaos, waging mass psychological warfare on the public, or decimating the economy under the pretense of a global pandemic–or all of those things combined. They were and remain determined to retake power by any means necessary.
But know this: the more shocking the lengths they go to, the more it reveals how desperate they are.
