Just as truthful as the above comment about the racist left.
The message was unmistakable at Joint Base Andrews Wednesday, two days after former President Donald Trump’s Florida home was raided by the FBI.

There, boarding Air Force One at 1:20 p.m., shoulder to shoulder with his father, the president, was Hunter Biden, whose home has never been raided.
Despite a snail’s pace grand-jury investigation into his suspect business dealings by the US attorney in Joe Biden’s crony state of Delaware, despite copious documentary evidence that he accepted millions of dollars from America’s adversaries in exchange for influencing his father, the then-vice president, despite actively working with Communist China to extend “belt-and-road” imperialism across the globe to undermine America, Hunter, 52, looked as if he didn’t have a care in the world.
Dressed in a suit and tie and accompanied by wife Melissa Cohen and toddler son Beau Biden, he made his way slowly up the stairs of the presidential jet, alongside Joe, exchanging private jokes before stopping at the top to turn and face the waiting cameras, father and son, giving the world a lingering view of their brazen smiles before they jetted off for a seven-day vacation to a favorite family haunt, Kiawah Island, SC.

“We are untouchable” was the unspoken message.

They may as well have given the middle finger 🖕to half the country.


Democrats and allied media have been high-fiving and backslapping on MSNBC and CNN ever since the Mar-a-Lago raid Monday. Magazine covers featuring Trump in a photoshopped orange jumpsuit behind bars are already in the works.
No one is above the law,” they chortle. Unless you’re a Democrat.

The fact that neither President Biden, nor his handpicked Attorney General Merrick Garland, has deigned to explain the raid shows that they don’t care about the ­optics.

They haven’t attempted to reassure the American public that it is not a political hit job to take out the likely Republican presidential candidate for 2024.

They don’t care that half the country, polls show, believes the FBI has become the Democrats’ personal Gestapo.

They don’t care about the political firestorm they have ignited, because they think they control the corrupted institutions that have all the power.

“They don’t even hide it anymore,” says Professor Nicholas Giordano, ex-catastrophic-planning official in New York state’s Office of Emergency Management and host of “The P.A.S. Report” podcast, which offers deep insights into the security state.

“But at this point why do they have to hide it because no one’s held accountable? It’s indisputable that when Democrats do wrong there are no arrests or charges and they are handled with kid gloves . . . Yet everyone in Trump’s orbit gets charged.”

Donald Trump
“If Trump gets elected [president], the first thing he’ll do is raid every one of Biden’s houses,” former NYC mayor Rudy Giuliani said.

He says reports that the FBI relied on information from a confidential human source, who told them where to look for classified documents at Mar-a-Lago, suggest that the feds have been surveilling Trump for some time.

“Why are they recruiting people from Trump’s orbit to investigate him? It’s like they are surveilling him again like it’s the Russia collusion [hoax].”

For the feds to claim they suddenly care about classified documents is a joke anyway.
They would have to care about Adam Schiff, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, constantly leaking classified information and lying that Hunter’s laptop was Russian disinformation.
They would have to care about Hillary Clinton’s private server and missing emails.

They would have to care that former FBI Director James Comey and his deputy Andrew McCabe lied to officials and disclosed classified information.

They would have to care about Hunter’s laptop and the identity of the Big Guy.

“Let’s be honest,” said Giordano. “Plenty of people are above the law in the United States.”
But not Trump, the “most investigated person” in American history.

The FBI, the Department of Justice, the Southern District of New York, special counsel Robert Mueller, the Manhattan district attorney, the New York state attorney general, officials in Georgia, two impeachment trials in Congress and now the January 6 Committee have investigated every aspect of the former president’s life.

He must be a master criminal to have withstood the scrutiny so far.

Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, was subjected to a secret warrant so the FBI could spy on his cloud for months before raiding him early in the morning and seizing all his devices — except the Hunter Biden hard drive.

They charged him with nothing, returned all his property 15 months later and quietly closed the supposed investigation into alleged foreign lobbying violations.

The process is the punishment.

Giuliani suspects the FBI was on a fishing expedition for evidence helpful to Nancy Pelosi’s January 6 Committee’s mission to find Trump guilty of inciting the Capitol riot.

“You rip his wife’s bedroom apart and what are you looking for? It had to be for one hell of a good purpose . . .
I think they’re hoping there’s something there like a piece of paper saying, ‘make sure you make it to the rally’ or maybe something they can take out of context like: ‘We’re going to blow this up.’ ”
He does not believe that Garland wasn’t aware of the raid. Nor does he believe that the White House didn’t know.

Pandora’s box
Giordano says most retired FBI agents he talks to say the agency has become “nothing more than a political machine and thoroughly corrupt [meaning] ideologically corrupted, where people put their ideology before the actual mission . . . It is an arm of the Democratic National Committee.

“At this point the FBI is unsalvageable. You can’t have an organization as powerful as the FBI being . . . weaponized politically.”

But he warns that Democrats have “opened Pandora’s box . . . and they better be careful what they wish for.”

Giuliani warns the boomerang will come back on Biden.

“Breaking into the home of a former president is a political act — particularly since you’re breaking precedent.

*******"All of a sudden, you’re the first president of the United States who introduced the banana-republic process of prosecuting your predecessor. We’ve avoided it for 240 years. Trump didn’t do it to Hillary. Ford didn’t do it.*** But the DICTATORSHIP PARTY DID DO IT!!



If Trump gets elected [president], the first thing he’ll do is raid every one of Biden’s houses.”

That’s something for the president to contemplate this week on Kiawah Island.

Oh yes, and Biden decided to take a vacation while his puppet masters try to write up what he will say when he come back to his teleprompter.
Hope he doesn't read the parts like, smile and wave, repeat line, do not take questions, go back to your seat and you can have ice cream and a cookie afterwards

    Seriously, listen to Rudy Giuliani?

    Last time most of us saw him, he was banging his own meat in a Borat movie.

    Rudy also owns 60 losses against a single win in court, trying to prove election fraud, Trump's big lie. What a loser. Every judge kicked him out of court.

    Your narrative though is compelling, however a total twisting of reality.

    Trump is a criminal, found committing criminal acts, and now being brought to justice, as any common criminal would be. Nothing special for poor Trumpie there.

    Trump, like any other crackhead, rapist, tax cheat, etc. is now whining, crying, complaining about the unfairness of our laws.

    Ask any law enforcement officer, they hear this *bleep*, the dumbass excuses, all the time. Trump shouldn't have done the crimes if he wouldn't do the time.

    Trump's treason and espionage against this nation and it's security, fully warrant investigation and prosecution, should the facts support criminal charges.

    You comrade, should return to the motherland. P

It's even in a book?
''An NBC reporter relayed a bizarre vignette in a newly released book in which Elizabeth Warren allegedly claimed that people “come up to her” and tell her they would vote for her except for the fact that she does not have male genitalia."
I bet they've said that about you too Anti!!!😂🤣🤣😂🐛AHAHAHAHAHAHA

Hold on to your gold
Posted on: 2022-08-13 14:00:57   By: Anonymous

Remember what the 2007 housing market bust did to the US and the world? We'll get ready, it's about to happen again, in China. And Yes it's going to affect us too since our government is too greedy they tax businesses so heavily they move overseas. And big businesses are so greedy they'll use human slave labor for their products, and the hypocrites condone it, both Left and Right.
