TINFOILHAT: The FBI obstructed the investigation into Hunter Biden’s laptop — Credibility Level 3. More likely than not

Biden Administration
FBI Official Accused of Shutting Down Hunter Biden Probe Was ‘Running Point’ on Key Witness
Chuck Ross • September 2, 2022 4:59 am

*** begin quote ***

A former FBI official who allegedly shut down part of the investigation into Hunter Biden was “running point” in the bureau’s dealings with a key witness in the probe, according to sources directly familiar with the matter.

The witness, Tony Bobulinski, now has concerns that the former official, Timothy Thibault, helped bury information about his dealings with the Biden family that he gave the FBI, sources told the Washington Free Beacon. Thibault retired from the FBI last week amid allegations from whistleblowers that he shut down an investigation into an avenue of “derogatory” information about Hunter Biden in October 2020. Senate Republicans began scrutinizing Thibault earlier this year over anti-Trump rhetoric he posted on social media.

It had been unclear what role Thibault played in the Biden investigation, which began in 2018. But his oversight of Bobulinski means he oversaw one of the most significant witnesses to come forward with information about the Bidens’ business links to China. The FBI interviewed Bobulinski for five hours on Oct. 23, 2020, after Bobulinski publicly disputed Joe Biden’s claim to have never discussed business with his son. Bobulinski said he met with Hunter and Joe Biden in May 2017 to discuss a multimillion-dollar deal with CEFC China Energy, a Chinese energy conglomerate with ties to Chinese military intelligence. The California-based businessman also said Joe Biden is “the big guy” referenced in cryptic emails discussing equity payments from their business deals.

“In my hour-long meeting with Joe Biden we discussed Biden family business dealings with the Chinese, with which he was plainly familiar,” Bobulinski said at a press conference before his FBI interview. Text messages show Bobulinski and Hunter Biden arranging a meeting with Joe Biden at the Beverly Hills Hilton. Emails from Biden’s abandoned laptop show extensive discussions about CEFC China Energy.

Seems “3. More likely than not” that the FBI agents obstructed any investigation into the Hunter Biden’s Laptop as evidence of foreign corruption of the Biden Administration.

TINFOILHAT: A third explanation of Covid seems “possible”

A Thousand Times Greater Than the Chernobyl Nuclear Disaster
Ron Unz • July 11, 2022

*** begin quote ***

Prof. Jeffrey Sachs of Columbia University ranks as a pillar of the mainstream establishment and served as chairman of the influential Covid commission established by the Lancet, a leading medical journal. In May, he broke his silence and co-authored an article in the prestigious Proceedings of the American Academy of Sciences making the case that the virus was clearly artificial and calling for an independent investigation into its possible American origin.

*** and ***

The absolutely unmentionable subtext of the current discussion is the obvious possibility that the Covid virus was created in an American lab and then deliberately deployed against China and Iran just as the Iranian government had claimed at the time, eventually leaking back and devastating America and the rest of the West.

*** end quote ***

One can never discount the perfidy of the Gooferment.  Any Gooferment!

One might guess that China released it in China and Iran to “attack” the USA.  That is a “false flag”.

You can NEVER assume that anything is the truth.

So perhaps this will never move from the state of “possible”.

Sigh!

Trust no one; verify everything.

MONEY: “Inside Money” standard and the “Outside Money” reality

MONEY, POLITICS
The Ins and Outs of Whose Money is it Anyway?
Date: March 13, 2022Author: Tom Luongo

*** begin quote ***

Today’s “Inside Money” standard, known colloquially as the Dollar Reserve standard, is actually what I like to call “Milton Friedman’s Nightmare.” It is nothing more than a system of competitively devalued and inflated debt-based scrips running around drinking each other’s milkshakes until everyone’s glass is empty.

FYI, there are a lot of empty glasses around the world right now and more are being created everyday as the financial system turned predatory after the Lehman Bros. collapse in 2008.

It was then that the Central Banks and governments turned fully against the people sucking up more and more outside money by inflating inside money egregiously to control more and more of the real wealth of the world.

There is only one problem with that, however. Eventually, you run out of property to squeeze out of people’s hands. The more you take, the less people are restrained by little things like laws.

Eventually two things happen. The first is what we’ve been seeing from Russia and China for the past twelve years — steady accumulation of gold and other hard assets, outside money, including the building of real manufacturing infrastructure as well as the financial infrastructure to house it.

The second is just over the horizon — the moment where all the legal claims to controlling outside money mean nothing when enforcement of those legal claims gets exposed as a bluff because there aren’t enough enforcers capable of keeping the looters from taking it.

*** end quote ***

I’m am waiting for the “Great Reset” to drop on “We, The Sheeple” of which I am part of in someways.  I know this is going to hurt the poor, the seniors, those on fixed incomes, as well as the non-super rich.

Wonder what the price of gold will go to … … (the fellow’s guess)  about 45k$.  By other guesstimates, that’ll translate to 80$/gallon for gas.  Now I’m not predicting this but even if gas goes from 4 to 8$/gallon, the economy is totally screwed.

The U$D would be near worthless.

Argh!

The future is murky and there could be a cliff in the fog.

‘Is that cool now? To choose a totalitarian police state over America?’ Bill Maher slams US-born Olympic gold medal skier Eileen Gu for choosing to compete for China

  • ‘Real Time’ host Bill Maher criticized Olympic gold medal skier Eileen Gu, 18, for defecting to China’s team amid rampant human rights violations in the country
  • He also criticized the NBA, basketballer LeBron James and action star John Cena for ‘kowtowing’ to China’s regime
  • ‘Is that cool now, to choose to represent a totalitarian police state over America?’

‘Real Time’ host Bill Maher struck out at American celebrities who he said ‘kowtow’ to China on Friday night, including California-born Olympic skier Eileen Gu who is competing for China, her mother’s homeland, in this year’s Beijing Olympics. 

‘Is that cool now, to choose to represent a totalitarian police state over America,’ he asked, kicking off his monologue. 

‘The Olympics pretends to only be about sports but of course, the games have always been a bit of a proxy war for which country has the best system. 

‘And by choosing Team China, Eileen Gu became a living symbol of China’s triumph over the west, which wouldn’t bother me so much if I thought China had triumphed over us in the ways that really matter. But they haven’t.’

*** end quote ***

More and more, either I’m changing or Bill Maher is becoming more “libertarian”.

I was stunned that anyone would go over to China for the “genocide olympics”.

Give Bill Maher credit for calling out a “turncoat”.  Maybe that’s harsh.  But, I don’t understand the decision, unless it came with a big cash stipend.

Sigh!

In the case of ratings, though, topping that has meant producing record lows.

Through the first four nights of competition, NBC is on track for the lowest-rated Winter Games in history. Friday night’s coverage on NBC, USA Network and Peacock averaged 12.8 million viewers, significantly down from the 27.8 million average in Pyeongchang four years ago.

End Covid Repression, Let Life Resume

Parts of America still demand that kids and vaccinated adults wear masks, even outdoors. Australia and China enforce even more tyrannical lockdowns. But now that vaccines protect most of us from serious Covid reactions, continuing such mandates is cruel.

Denmark realizes that. They recently ended ALL their Covid restrictions.

“Go Denmark. We in the United States should do the same,” Economist Don Boudreaux says. The costs of restrictions now dramatically outweigh the benefits.

“We reduced COVID, through vaccination, to a fairly mild ailment,” Boudreaux tells me. “We don’t have to continue to upend human life in our quest to eliminate COVID, which can’t happen anyway.”

Covid is unlikely to ever go away. Even if all humans became free of Covid, Boudreaux points out, the virus can still live in animals. Humanity has never eradicated a virus that can live in both animals and humans.

As Denmark and other Europeans countries show, normal life can go on. Let people LIVE.

INTERESTING: Is Political Change Coming To China?

Authored by Yuen Yuen Ang via Project Syndicate, In contemporary China, profound political transformation can – and has – taken place in the absence of regime change or Western-style democratization. The starkest example is the period of “reform and opening” that began in 1978 under Deng Xiaoping’s charge.

Is War With China Inevitable?
Submitted by Tyler Durden on 12/13/2013 22:10 -0500

*** begin quote ***

Global financiers created the circumstances that have led to America’s probable economic demise, but they don’t want to be blamed for it. War provides the perfect cover for monetary collapse, and a war with China might become the cover to end all covers. The resulting fiscal damage and the terror Americans would face could be overwhelming. Activists who question the legitimacy of the U.S. government and its actions, once considered champions of free speech, could easily be labeled “treasonous” during wartime by authorities and the frightened masses. (If the government is willing to use the Internal Revenue Service against us today, just think about who it will send after us during the chaos of a losing war tomorrow.) A lockdown of civil liberties could be instituted behind the fog of this national panic.

You have to look at the financial fraud being pulled by the Fed.

The Chinese are in control of our fate. (Not that they don’t have their own problems.)

So, when these very ugly chickens come home to roost, how will the elite avoid the “french revolution’s guillotine”?

Forgotten War, Forgotten Soldiers
Book: American POWs left behind from Korean War

American Trophies

BY: Bill Gertz
July 26, 2013 4:08 pm

*** begin quote ***

U.S. prisoners of war were left behind in North Korea, China, and Russia after the Korean War and the Pentagon failed to win their release or a full accounting of their fate, according to research contained in a new book that is highly critical of U.S. POW recovery efforts.

“The Obama White House and Pentagon show not a trace of urgency in recovering our Korean War POW/MIAs, perished or alive,” said Mark Sauter, the book’s co-author who has spent more than two decades investigating missing soldiers.

“Time is running out for many of their family members, not to mention American POWs reported in North Korea long after the war, if any still survive,” he told the Washington Free Beacon. “Contrast this with South Korea, which has recovered dozens of its POWs alive in recent years. Some family members believe the U.S. government is simply waiting for the problem to go away.”

The book, American Trophies: How American POWs Were Surrendered to North Korea, China, and Russia by Washington’s ‘Cynical Attitude,’ includes numerous cases of missing Americans from the Korean War, along with several from the Cold War and Vietnam War. It is based on years of research, interviews, and documents by the authors, Sauter and John Zimmerlee.

Every American Legion post I have ever been in has a POW / MIA table.

How can we not hold politicians and bureaucrats to account?

How can we let them keep sending girls and boys overseas in our name?

Why do we vote for folks who have NOT served?

Argh!

I first learned about the issue when I discussed “Men aren’t potatoes” from Robert Heinlein’s Starship Troopers with my Uncle who served in WW2. He borrowed my copy and read it.

Laff, he agreed with the line that “serving doesn’t make saints but it’s a good filter for cowards”.

FUN: Early morning wakeup

“Thanks, construction workers, for the <Expletive Deleted> 0530 wakeup call!”, thought Grumpy on Saturday morning.

(How kool is that referring to myself in the Third Person. Makes me feel more of like a writer than a mere blogger.)

After I was up from ~0200 to ~0400 with “the baby”, who couldn’t sleep.

(That’s me again in the third person. That’s how I think on myself when I can go back to sleep after a bad dream, on of any innumerable WC visits thanks to the Rx diuretic, or when I get the “next great idea” like online backup.)

It was really OK. Really.

See the Verizon phone doesn’t know the diff between workday weekday and weekends. Probably the kids in China who build and programmed the phone don’t have weekends off.

So the 0530 call was followed by Verizon’s 0600, 0615, and 0630 alarms.

(The 0600 is the worst. Reveille! For a minute, I think I’m back in basic. And I couldn’t find the phone so I had to hear it twice. How did it get under the bed? Hiding from the “dancing girls” that were in last night. In my dreams.)

Followed the corporate Berry’s at 0730. (I know where that was hanging from it’s charger in the kitchen. If it does get it’s full charge, it dies during the day and then the battery needs to be replaced. (Great engineering guys in China!) Which means I have to walk it two buildings over to “support”. (Boy, do I miss Wall Street. “Yes, Mister Reinke, sorry you’re having a problem. I send someone to replace it immediately. Is he there yet?”)

So, I’ll just say my “child like” prayer for all the people I’ve just maligned.

MONEY: When does the inflation come?

The Nation III: The Federal Reserve now owns more United States Treasury bonds (debt) than China. Think about what a mega-Ponzi scheme this is. The very entity that prints greenback dollars…creating money from paper and ink…prints up a few hundred billion and hands them to the US Treasury to buy debt, thereby propping up the government. It’s the highest form of counterfeiting ever witnessed in human history. The tragic part of this story is that the Fed cannot stop printing and buying. If other nations around the planet want to dump DC debt, the Fed will be forced to buy it so that the bond market does not crash. Get ready for hyperinflation, ladies and gentlemen. It’s coming to a wallet near you.

Paper money always fails eventually.

Who gets hurt? The poor, those on fixed incomes, the very young, and the very old.

Who makes out? The elite, the mobile, those with real skills / real capital, and those who “saved” in metals.

So, when?

That’s the 64k$ question!

We have to think it comes with a “tipping point” event (i.e., trouble in the Middle East; OPEC shifts to sell oil for gold; China further “diversifies” out of US debt).

We’re like the old sailors approaching the edge of the earth. Who knows what lies over the horizon?
