Flotsam and Jetsam - Comer Comes Through

As promised, Rep, Comer delivered a stunning indictment of the Biden crime family, laying out how Hunter and family, while overseen by Sleepy Joe, constructed a web of LLCs (16 of 20 created in the Obama administration) designed to accept funds from foreign governments and companies, and dole it out to at least 9 family member, with no apparent product or service, other than the patriarchs good will. At least 10 million dollars came from a variety of companies, including Romania.  Megan Fox at PJM, Republicans Promise THIS TIME the Biden Crime Family Is Finished! Amber Athey at Spec World, (cited at Hat Hair), thinks Hunter Biden is running out of time and Capt. Ed comments "it’s beyond idiotic that the Bidens haven’t forced Hunter to settle it before now. Instead, he’s hired Abbe Lowell to turn it into a public fight while depicting Hunter as a “destitute” artist. The more public that fight becomes, the less able the Bidens will be able to contain the damages of the financial disclosures to come."  At the Wombat's In The Mailbox: 05.10.23, from Twitchy, Jonathan Turley breaks down Biden family allegations during House Oversight presser. Direct link. Also, Nice Deb at Am Great,  House Oversight Report: Bank Records Show Pattern of Biden Family Influence Peddling While Joe Biden Was V.P. and  The Geller Reports Biden Family CREATED A NETWORK of More Than 20 Shell Companies To Money Launder, Receiving More Than $10 MILLION DOLLARS From China, Romania For Influence Peddling. Mary Chastain at LI, Nine Biden Family Members Received Over $10 Million From Foreign Nationals, Hid Money in Shell Companies. At NRO, Bidens Used Web of Shell Companies to Conceal Foreign Cash, Bank Records Obtained by House GOP Reveal. PJM's Matt Margolis, BREAKING: Rep. Comer Reveals Trove of Evidence Against Biden Crime Family. Spencer Brown at Town Hall, New ‘Astonishing’ Info Released on Biden Family Corruption. Capt. Ed, House Oversight: Bidens scored $10M or more during VP years from foreign influence peddling. Ace, House Republicans: Biden Family Members Received $10 Million+ From Foreign Sources, "Biden sure has a lot of Friends Who Give Him Money in Romania, Russia, and China." Sundance at CTH, Chairman James Comer Holds Press Conference Outlining Payments to Biden Family from Foreign Governments, and hosts the 49 minute press conference. Hat Hair's Dave Strom, Biden's corrupt? The MSM shrugs. Jonathan Turley@JonathanTurley "The Gold Medal for spin may have to go to the New Republic. After revealing millions of dollars being filtered through 17 LLCs to nine Biden family members from foreign sources, the TNR headlined:"Republicans Finally Admit They Have No Incriminating Evidence on Joe Biden."At Da Wire, Blinken Says He Met With James Biden ‘A Dozen’ Times, Denies Business Talk

An interesting thing happened on the way to the press conference, ne'er-do-well Rep. Santos was arrested by the DOJ on charges wire fraud, and lying to Congress (really!). Shawn Fleetwood at Da Fed, DOJ Strategically Timed Political Arrest To Coincide With Press Conference Detailing Evidence Of Biden Corruption to give the press something other to talk about. Beege Wellborn at Hat Hair, Obvious much? While Comer's presser on, DoJ and media pull a Santos out of their hat. At Reason, George Santos Arrested, Indicted on 13 Federal Counts, Pleads Not Guilty. Yeah, he's probably guilty, but then, so are most congresscritters. Sundance details how FBI Used Congressional Staff as Confidential Informants and Human Assets to Build Case Against Congressman George Santos, so it's pretty clear they targeted him as soon as he took office. News Buster, Nets Ignore New Hunter Biden Revelations, Hype Santos Charges. At the Wombat's In The Mailbox: 05.10.23, Tristan Justice at Da Fed says George Santos’ Real Crime Was Making Democrats Look Stupid

Capt. Ed asks (rhetorically), Did the CIA collude with the Biden campaign to interfere in 2020 election? Sure looks like it. Sean Davis at Da Fed, CIA Solicited Signatures For Hunter Biden Laptop Letter, Congressional Testimony Shows. Violate the Hatch Act much? Ace, It Wasn't Just Mike Morrell. The CIA Itself Participated in the "51 Intelligence Officials" Disinformation Operation Directed Against the American People. "A certain kind of Republican will defend the CIA, no matter how many malign information operations they run against the taxpayers paying their salaries.

In another thread in the same tapestry, the FBI is refusing to release to Congress an unclassified internal document that is known to outline the Biden syndicate. At Fox, FBI doesn't share document GOP subpoenaed alleging 'criminal scheme' involving Biden. "The House Oversight Committee subpoenaed the FBI for an FD-1023 form." JTN's Ben Whedon,  Top Republicans excoriate FBI for noncompliance with subpoena for alleged Biden bribery doc "While the FBI has failed to produce the specific document by the subpoena deadline, their offer to provide an accommodation process in response to our legitimate request indicates the document is real," Grassley said." Sundance calls it Clear Political Intent – FBI Refuses to Turn Over Unclassified Investigative Report Detailing Joe Biden Bribery Scheme.

On the debt ceiling standoff, Breitbart cites Kevin McCarthy: ‘Didn’t See Any New Movement’ on Debt Ceiling Negotiations. Scott McKay at Am Spec sees Tyrannical Disregard Meets the Debt Ceiling, "Team Biden doesn’t make the calculations you’re used to." At the Wombat's In The Mailbox: 05.10.23,  Dave Harsanyi at Da Fed, The Democrats’ Debt Ceiling Position Makes Zero Sense. If it's really important, they'll solve it, but only at the last possible second. Atop da Summit, Biden Fact Checked Into Oblivion By Twitter Community Notes After Touting ‘Record’ Job Creation.

Mary Chastain at LI, Dept. of Energy Going After Dishwashers With New ‘Efficiency Rules’ "The standard for maximum per-cycle water consumption (gal/cycle) now is 5. Many newer dishwashers are 3.5. But the DoE wants to make it 3.3." Punchbowl, cited at Hat Hair, Manchin: I will 'oppose every EPA nominee' until their radical policies change. Capt. Ed, "You know what might have had an impact on these radical policies and intent to “kill the fossil industry by a thousand cuts”? Voting against the laughably named Inflation Reduction Act. Note too that Manchin is only promising to ‘oppose’ EPA nominees, not block them, which he could do through procedural tactics. With Dianne Feinstein returning to the Senate, Manchin could oppose them and still see them confirmed by Kamala Harris if they get a floor vote. Will Manchin use his authority as chair of the Energy and Natural Resources Committee block those nominees from getting to the floor? If so, why not say that rather than ‘oppose’?"

At TNP, RFK Jr. Ties Biden in Primary Poll, 1 in 5 Dems Say They’d Pick Trump-Kennedy Over Biden-Harris. Dave Strom is amused when USA Today says Republicans are mean to Kamala. Hey, politics ain't beanbag. Also at the Summit, Top Republicans Believe Trump Nomination is Now “Inevitable.” But, but, but Elle Gardey at Am Spec wonders Is Vivek Ramaswamy Surging? "He certainly thinks he has momentum."

PM, BREAKING: Carlson was told by a member of the Fox board that he was taken off the air as part of the Dominion settlement, per Tucker's legal team "The revelation comes as Tucker Carlson has launched a new exclusive show on Twitter." At Da Blaze, Media juggernaut Tucker Carlson crushes it on Twitter as latest video amasses nearly 23 million views within 24 hours while Fox News Fails With McEnany in Tucker's Old Slot While Carlson Teases His Launch (Lincoln Brown, PJM). Mediaite reports Jen Psaki Beats Fox News and CNN — Scores Weekend Ratings Win For MSNBC. Also at PJM, Stephen Kruiser claims The Tucker/Twitter Alliance Is the Best Liberal Tears Generator Since Trump's Election and Ben Bartee, wants you to WATCH as Tucker Carlson's Twitter Partnership Induces Meltdown by NBC News Actor and Disgraced CNN Stooge Brian Stelter. Louder with Crowder, Is Elon Musk working with right-wing extremist Tucker Carlson? Elon Musk@elonmusk "On this platform, unlike the one-way street of broadcast, people are able to interact, critique and refute whatever is said. And, of course, anything misleading will get @CommunityNotes. I also want to be clear that we have not signed a deal of any kind whatsoever. Tucker is subject to the same rules & rewards of all content creators. Rewards means subscriptions and advertising revenue share (coming soon), which is a function of how many people subscribe and the advertising views associated with the content. I hope that many others, particularly from the left, also choose to be content creators on this platform." Also at LWC, Elon Musk tweets problematic meme at CBC News.

At Breitbart, Mailchimp Censors Senator J.D. Vance’s Press Release, Blames ‘Error.’ Bob Spencer at PJM details how DHS Wants You to Snitch on Pro-Life Moms and 'Anti-Government' Neighbors, this one is pretty scary. Margot Cleveland at Da Fed, Government-Funded Censors Violated Congress’s Mandate To Target Only Foreign ‘Disinformation’ "‘None of the funds … shall be used for purposes other than countering foreign propaganda and misinformation,’ Congress mandated. But the State Department didn’t care." At Racket, Report on the Censorship-Industrial Complex: The Top 50 Organizations to Know "The citizen's starter kit to understanding the new global information cartel." Capt. Ed says "Bookmark this as a handy reference when it comes to censorship issues in the US. PolitiFact and’s parent organizations get prominent mention, as do other well-known entities such as the Aspen Institute, the Omidyar Group, the Knight Foundation, and more. There are a number of surprises too. The inclusion of Media Matters is no surprise, though, but it is a welcome recognition."

At Da Fed, Hayden Ludwig says Democrats’ Far-Reaching ‘Reforms’ Are The Real Threat To Election Security, Not Violent Conservatives and Eoin Lenihan warns Conservatives, Get Busy Ballot Harvesting Or Get Busy Losing.

Well, that's all I have time for now, maybe more later.
