Now The Washington Post Cares About Hunter Biden’s Laptop and Emails

Now The Washington Post Cares About Hunter Biden’s Laptop and Emails

Aw, WaPo confirmed the authenticity of Hunter Biden’s laptop and emails…two years after brushing aside The New York Post’s reporting.

As Leslie says to people who are late to a story, “Welcome to the party, pal.”

Die Hard is awesome.

Anyway, The Washington Post analyzed Hunter Biden’s laptop, and acts like it broke this huge massive story!

You know, except in October 2020, The New York Post published emails from Hunter’s laptop showing he wanted to have “lasting and lucrative” deals with the top Chinese private energy company. The emails are from 2017.

The deal would have brought in millions for the Biden family.

The company was CEFC China Energy Co. based in Shanghai. Chairman Ye Jianming vanished in 2018 after Chinese authorities took him into custody.

CEFC went bankrupt in early 2020.

The projects never happened.

The Washington Post admitted others *cough*TheNewYorkPost*cough* reported the emails before and the Republican-led Senate issued a report on it in 2020. WaPo claimed it tried to get documents from Rudy Giuliani and Steve Bannon, but they ignored the publication.

However, this article by fact-checker Glenn Kessler on October 14, 2020, didn’t sound all that enthusiastic about finding out if the emails were authentic or the content.

Thank goodness America has WaPo because it confirmed all those details…two years later.

But WaPo discovered some new details:

But the new documents — which include a signed copy of a $1 million legal retainer, emails related to the wire transfers, and $3.8 million in consulting fees that are confirmed in new bank records and agreements signed by Hunter Biden — illustrate the ways in which his family profited from relationships built over Joe Biden’s decades in public service.

Nonetheless, accounts linked to Hunter Biden received at least $3.79 million in payments from CEFC through consulting contracts, according to bank records and joint agreements reviewed by The Post.

Biden received an additional $1 million retainer, issued as part of an agreement to represent Patrick Ho, a CEFC official who would later be charged in the United States in connection with a multimillion-dollar scheme to bribe leaders from Chad and Uganda. That retainer agreement, in a newly uncovered document, contains the signatures of both Hunter Biden and Ho, who was later convicted and sentenced to three years in prison.

WaPo said it “did not find evidence that Joe Biden personally benefited from or knew details about the transactions with CEFC, which took place after he had left the vice presidency and before he announced his intentions to run for the White House in 2020.”

It’s weird, though, because after Hunter went into business with CEFC he asked for changes at the office he rented in the House of Sweden building in Georgetown:

On Sept. 21, 2017, Hunter Biden wrote to a building manager requesting new office signage to reflect a new family enterprise and a new business relationship: “The Biden Foundation and Hudson West (CEFC- US),” he wrote in emails to the property manager.

He also requested keys for his new office mates: his father, Joe; his mother, Jill; his uncle James; and the Chinese executive, Gongwen Dong.

As part of the request, he provided what he said was his father’s cellphone number, saying an office representative could use it to contact his new office mates.

I thought Joe had no knowledge of his son’s business deals.

A spokeswoman for the Swedish authority in charge of the building told WaPo that Hunter never picked up the keys and no one changed the signage.

The main question is why now? Why is WaPo publishing the laptop’s content now? We all know why WaPo and the legacy media ignored the laptop in 2020.

On March 18, WaPo’s Philip Bump tried to justify why the legacy media ignored Hunter’s laptop. He claimed everyone did it because they had suspicions about the authenticity and how The New York Post retrieved the material.

Bump makes perfect sense but no one did their job. No one tried to get the documents or laptops. I don’t think any of them contacted The New York Post. It’s been almost two years!

Bump is also a hypocrite because WaPo didn’t care about authenticity when it came to Trump and his administration. They changed their motto to “Democracy Dies in Darkness” after Trump got elected.

So excuse me, Bump, if I don’t fall for your excuses.

I’ll put on my tinfoil hat. We see Biden ruining America’s image every time he opens his mouth, especially when it comes to Putin. He’s embarrassing and awful. Could it be sabotage? But then again Harris is no better. She laughed when asked about Ukrainian refugees.

Mike wrote about ABC, CBS, and NBC ignoring the laptop and new contents found in the hard drive. The New York Times confirmed the laptop’s authenticity last month. Now this month WaPo writes about.

But Chris Barron, one of my best friends, said it perfectly:

They rigged an election with their censoring but they need to regain credibility before the primaries.

    This is the kind of “rigging” that everyone can understand and IMO undermines the legitimacy of Biden far more than funny business with mail-in ballots or election machines. Under pressure, I suspect the Dems posture may increasingly be to distance themselves from a President “put in by the MSM” and his bad policies, caused by dementia, “poor guy” – but “we are still the good guys who gave you all that money.”

Pravda on the Potomac is struggling with the “Pravda” part.

Cue the record: Move along, folks. There’s nothing to see here.

The damage is already done.

    The Bee has one hell of a challenging job to do in today’s world. It’s really hard to imagine anything more ridiculous than Dementia Joe the communist pedophile and his retarded administration.

      Luckily, they are very talented, even a lame twitter censor ban won’t stop them.

      Compare two people and tell me which one is morally upright and respectable:

      1. Bruce Willis has cognitive issues: Steps back from acting
      2. Joe Biden has cognitive issues: Runs for President of the United States

      Gosport in reply to Ironclaw. | March 30, 2022 at 8:34 pm

      Their real challenge is creating satire that lasts more than a day before the left turns it into fact.

Hmm, they must be looking to oust the pedophile, right on schedule. Replace him in January and his successor can run twice as an incumbent.

    henrybowman in reply to Ironclaw. | March 30, 2022 at 4:07 pm

    Even if that had been their original plan, even a moron could see that it has zero chance of succeeding now. They don’t even want her anymore, much less the rest of America.

    Petrushka in reply to Ironclaw. | March 30, 2022 at 4:52 pm

    You can’t touch a president in the middle of a war. Unless it goes really badly. I hate saying this, but it looks like adults are in charge of this one.

    Biden just identified himself as the court fool. He can say anything, because Putin knows he’s a doddering halfwit.

      Gosport in reply to Petrushka. | March 30, 2022 at 8:38 pm

      Spot on. For once I’m glad that the world knows not to take anything that comes out of his mouth seriously.

      It’s humiliating for our country but safer than the alternative.

The NY Times and the WaPo are realizing that the horse they are riding is not going to make it around the track. Would love to hear the yelling and screaming going in their editorial offices.

    On the other hand, their preferred agenda is proceeding apace. There’s no chance it would be going so well if Trump had been elected (I know, he WAS elected, but they’re working hard to show that anyone who believes that is crazy/a traitor/an insurrectionist).

    Mission accomplished… but now what?

Antifundamentalist | March 30, 2022 at 3:54 pm

Are they setting the stage for a new DNC candidate for 2024?

“A spokeswoman for the Swedish authority in charge of the building told WaPo that Hunter never picked up the keys and no one changed the signage.”

Is it just me, or does this guy have serious problems remembering to pick up stuff he left with people?

“WaPo didn’t care about authenticity when it came to Trump and his administration. They changed their motto to “Democracy Dies in Darkness” after Trump got elected.”

What was it before that? “Subscribe, submit, and shut up?”

The WP and NY Times are like my cat. Lots of activity trying to cover up the mess in the litter box. On second thought they are the mess in the litter box.

Man, talk about our nation being in the toilet: reading the tea leaves of the Deep State is like doing the same of the old USSR. Now OUR government and media is the USSR.

That said: having served his purpose, they’re ready to put Biden out to pasture. Kamala Harris must be scared shitless.

One of the former CIA officers who signed a letter claiming stories about a laptop allegedly belonging to Hunter Biden were disinformation says he helped swing the 2020 election from former President Donald Trump.
“I take special pride in personally swinging the election away from Trump,” John Sipher, who served for decades as a senior operations officer at the CIA, wrote in a recent post on Twitter.

10 percent for the Big Guy?

WaPo: The Post did not find evidence that Joe Biden personally benefited from or knew details about the transactions with CEFC, which took place after he had left the vice presidency and before he announced his intentions to run for the White House in 2020.

These releases today are about *PROTECTING* the current unique ability that retaining Biden represents. Joe Biden will never be discarded, ever. He will never not be useful. The installation of Joe Biden was/is the ultimate tool. Their once in a lifetime opportunity to advance the goals of the globalist deep state without concern for political fallout

The first WaPo report is an effort to protect their own integrity and make claims about why they could not, until now, verify the authenticity of the Hunter Biden emails and electronic communication. Their goal, in this article, is to make people believe it was impossible to accurately
authenticate the content until now.

The second report, published four minutes after the purposeful obfuscation effort to detract from the authenticity, goes into details surrounding how the Biden family gained financial wealth from selling influence.

The media intentionally manipulated this story to benefit their preferred candidate. This is appalling. No one can or should trust the results of the 2020 election thanks to this despicable behavior.

I don’t get this.

Of course I don’t trust the results of the 2020 election, because there’s very good reason to believe that the usual level of electoral fraud was ramped way way up, at least doubled if not more.

But this story shouldn’t affect that trust (or lack thereof). This story is about what I call non-electoral fraud. And it’s only one instance thereof, though quite a significant one. This one fraud alone may have moved up to 5% of the electorate. Then there was the Russia hoax, the “neo-nazis are fine people” hoax, the disrespect-for-dead-veterans hoax, the Wuhan Disease hoax (not the disease itself, but the hysteria around it, designed to make it look like Trump didn’t care if we all dropped dead), and all the other hoaxes, which together had to be worth at least 15% of the electorate.

And this is all before we get to the election and the electoral fraud, however great or small that ended up being. Everyone whose vote was influenced by all those hoaxes genuinely voted for Biden, and is therefore a reason to trust the result. How did Biden win? Because all these people were convinced to vote for him.

The reason not to trust the result is because on top of that came massive fraud in the election itself, the evidence for which is almost entirely indirect, and the effect of which on the final result we can only guess, but which undoubtedly did happen on an unprecedented scale. If that didn’t change the result, it was only by chance.

    Did you miss Hunter’s business parter coming out as a witness that flat out stated that Joe Biden personally grifted through this scheme?

    And what alleged 5% of the electorate do you think it affected? It was the battlegrounds not Failifornia that was swayed. Heck, PA thought they would get a centrist in support of coal and other industry; no MSM would call him on his waffle tongue. Most of them still won’t!

    This is witholding, for evil reasons, what is known to be true from the general public that don’t pay as close attention as the watchful portion of the population (the portion that dwindles on a yearly basis)

      Milhouse in reply to healthguyfsu. | March 30, 2022 at 6:53 pm

      No, I didn’t miss that at all. My estimate of 5% is based on the number of people who have told pollsters that they voted for Biden, but wouldn’t have had they known about this story.

      It’s also partly based on the number of people who, immediately after the Post first published it, searched the web for how to change their already-cast votes (and found they couldn’t). Obviously if more people had known about the story that number would have been far greater.

      But none of this is electoral fraud, or gives one any reason not to trust the result. On the contrary, all those people affirm that they did genuinely vote for Biden, because they were misled. So they are reasons to trust the result. The reason I still don’t, despite this, is because in addition to all the non-electoral fraud there was also massive electoral fraud. It’s a matter of “and”, not “or”. Both kinds of fraud happened, and they were both massive.

    CommoChief in reply to Milhouse. | March 30, 2022 at 6:24 pm

    Maybe the comment is directed at those late to the class on the many shenanigans of the 2020 election? Simple people need someone to provide simple answers.

      Milhouse in reply to CommoChief. | March 30, 2022 at 6:55 pm

      Yes, but this doesn’t affect the trustworthiness of the election result. This story is not a reason not to trust the election result. There are such reasons, but this story isn’t one of them. It’s about a completely different fraud, a reason why even a completely honest election would have been tainted.

Joe Biden is a crook. The Democratic Nixon. Harris is his insurance policy. We are sinking fast. November can’t come soon enough.

    No. Nixon was not just brilliant but obviously so. He’s the only Republican president since WW2 that the Dems have never tried to portray as dumb, because they knew they could never get away with that.

    Biden genuinely is dumb, and that was even when he had all his marbles.

Now they care about a lot of things… demos-cracy is aborted at the Twilight Fringe.

That said, eight years since Slavic Spring, 2 years since Zelensky, NOW (pun intended) they care about the Ukrainian people, east, west, and throughout, and the Wuhan-style labs. Here’s to progress: one step forward, two steps backward.

So, the election was processed through a campaign, probable conspiracy, of misinformation and disinformation. Trust the results, but not the process.

“WaPo claimed it tried to get documents from Rudy Giuliani and Steve Bannon, but they ignored the publication.”
I believe this did happen cause If i had some real compromising info about someone the Wash composts is cheerleading for, i wouldn’t be inclined to give them the info that hurts their guy cause they will likely sweep it under the rug claiming its fake under the guise they have a copy of the data and it it looks fake to their staff.
