Flotsam and Jetsam - Blindness in the Media, Amnesia at the FBI

Of course, we're still talking about Hunter Biden's indictment on gun charges. Jeff Lord at Am Spec, Hunter Indicted: The Vindication of Donald Trump "The walls start closing in on the Bidens." Harold Hutchinson at Da Call cites Turley Saying Biden May Make Crucial Mistake In His Son’s Indictment That Could Ruin His 2024 Chances. “If the president was not intending to run for re-election, he could pardon his son and admit that this was an abuse of the power, and say his penalty will to be a one-term president,” Turley told Fox News host John Roberts. “The pardon power has been abused historically by presidents to assist friends and family members. That included Bill Clinton, who pardoned his half brother. So there’s nothing inviolate about the presidential pardon power. It has often been honored in the breach by presidents in the use to benefit themself personally or politically.” Ace too cites Jonathan Turley: Far From Being Launched "Without Evidence," the Evidence That Biden Committed the Impeachment-Level Crime of Bribery Is Strong and Demands an Inquiry. At Althouse "Your blatant efforts achieved your goal as the U.S. Attorney in Delaware today filed gun charges against our client..." ""... charges that are unprecedented when not part of some other criminal conduct and have been found unconstitutional by a federal court of appeals — and who reversed his earlier decision that such charges were not warranted. Your improper interference now affecting a federal prosecutor is a much greater threat to society than the 11 days that Mr. Biden possessed an unloaded gun." Wrote Abbe Lowell, Hunter Biden's lawyer, quoted in "Hunter Biden’s lawyer accuses House Republicans of ‘congressional manipulation’/The first son’s lawyer said House Republicans’ 'improper interference' is more dangerous than Hunter Biden’s prior possession of a gun" (Politico)." So, we were just supposed to ignore the crimes because it was Joe's son? At PJM, Matt Margolis explains The Hunter Biden Indictments Are a Ruse. Here’s Why. From Twitchy, Elie Mystal angry tweeting at Merrick Garland over the Hunter Biden indictment is TOO FUNNY. NYPo reports Half of Americans have little or no confidence in DOJ’s handling of Hunter Biden probe: poll

Jazz Shaw at Hat Hair sees A sudden amnesia epidemic at the FBI, on the investigation in Hunter and his dad. Margot Cleveland at Da Fed claims Baltimore FBI Agent Agrees Weiss Didn’t Have Ultimate Authority To Charge Hunter Biden. Brandon Drey at Da Wire, Key Testimony Alleges Biden Met With Son’s Business Partner, Kazakh Bank Official. 'So how's the weather in Kazakhstan today?' TNP reports  Biden’s Rationale for Ignoring Ukraine Conflicts of Interest: ‘My Son Was Dying.’ At WaT, Tim Murtaugh notes how the Media up to their eyeballs in evidence against Biden, but claim they can’t see it. "The news media are going full Philip Bump. Never go full, Philip Bump." Matt Vespa at Town Hall asks Is CNN Serious About This Piece on the Biden Bribery Allegations? They're dead serious about covering it up.

James Bovard at NYPo, Citizens, only Supreme Leader Joe Biden can save democracy: Hearing his speech is compulsory. At Am Con, Shutdown Sundae with an Impeachment on Top "House Speaker Kevin McCarthy adds an impeachment inquiry to the House’s docket. Will it help avoid a government shutdown?" At Am Think, Marcus Ebenhack thinks The deep state is through with Joe Biden "When WaPo’s David Ignatius declares the man he did so much to install in the Oval Office should not seek re-election, it means something. Actually, it means a lot. Ignatius is a despicable excuse for a “journalist.”" Don Surber says  And just like that, Biden was too old. "The flop sweat of desperation hits the Establishment." Ace has a Gerontacracy Alert: Ron Johnson Says That Mitch McConnell Is "Completely Out of Step" with Republicans; Morning Joe Shills Admit that Every Democrat Privately Admits That Biden Is Too Old to be President (or Even " " " President " " "). "I did not expect Ron Johnson, who was earlier suspected of being liberal-leaning RINO, to evolve into one of the most based and ballsy senators we have."

At Da Wire, Biden Slammed For ‘Racist’ Remark About ‘African American And Hispanic Workers.’ “We’ve seen record lows in unemployment, particularly — and I’ve focused on this my whole career — particularly for African Americans and Hispanic workers and veterans, you know, the workers without high-school diplomas,” Fuzzy Slippers at LI notes Racist Joe Biden Says Something Racist. Again. "He also manages to outdo John Kerry’s infamous “stuck in Iraq” swipe at our military." Also, a Federal Judge Again Rules DACA “Substantially Unlawful.” “The judge’s ruling is expected to be appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court.”  Mary Chastain at LI catches the Biden Admin Criticizing NYC for Lack of ‘Exit Strategy’ Regarding Migrants: ‘Slap in the Face.’ At Ace's Morning Rant the “Surreally Good” Economy: Incomes Are Falling, Prices Are Rising, Sales Volumes Are Declining, and Consumer Delinquencies Are Increasing. Thanks, Brandon! From Breitbart, an Exclusive — J.D. Vance: Biden’s Green Agenda to Decimate Steelworkers in the Heartland and Ford CEO: We Won’t Give Workers Pay Increases that Keep Us ‘from Investing in This Transition to EVs.’

Sundance at CTH reports Special Prosecutor Jack Smith Seeks Gag Order on President Trump, for mean TweetXs "I think we all knew this request was eventually going to happen.  The question going forward is whether Judge Chutkan is willing to attempt to block the #1 presidential candidate from speaking, while simultaneously allowing the DOJ/FBI and Jack Smith to leak to the media." Mary Chastain at LI reports Two Georgia Trump Co-Defendants Will Have Joint Trial In October "Trump and the other defendants will face trial at a later date. Georgia Judge Scott McAfee decided lawyers Sidney Powell and Kenneth Chesebro will have their joint trial starting October 23." Althouse, "I think it’s very unlikely. What, what did I do wrong? I didn’t do anything wrong. You mean because I challenge an election, they want to put me in jail." "Said Donald Trump, quoted in "Trump says it's 'very unlikely' he'd pardon himself if elected/In an interview with NBC's 'Meet the Press' former President Donald Trump said that in his final days in office, he told people, 'The last thing I’d ever do is give myself a pardon'" (NBC News)."

Guy Benson at Town Hall, Panic Button? More Brutal Polling for Democrats. TNP, Trump Dominates in South Carolina, DeSantis in 4th. At PJM Paula Bolyard reports on how Megyn Kelly Grills Trump on Covid Response. His Answers Don't Exactly Inspire Confidence and VodkaPundit asks Did Trump Learn Anything From the Mistakes That Cost Him the White House? Carpe Diem at Am Great says Vivek Ramaswamy is a Fraud. "Ramaswamy is only sucking up to Trump now because he knows it will help his poll numbers."

At the Free Bacon, This Illinois Democrat Can't Stop Tweeting About How Dumb His Constituents Are "Eric Sorensen says the residents of his swing district are illiterate, ignorant, and bigoted." It may well be true; they voted for him. Insty notes AP IS HANDED AN ACTUAL PEE TAPE, CHOOSES TO ALERT CANDIDATE RATHER THAN COMMIT JOURNALISM: "[Susanna] Gibson posted her videos to a site where she had more than 5,700 followers. She said in the videos that she wanted as large of an audience as possible, saying “And I love that they’re all watching me getting f—-ed right now and it turns me the hell on…. Yeah I want to see you on Checkmates too.” In exchange for her performing specific sex acts, she solicited monetary “tokens” from viewers, where 100 tokens is worth approximately $5. “Y’all can watch me pee if you tip me and some tokens,” she said. “Again, I’m raising money for a good cause.” Hat Hair's KT reads Teen Vogue: The gender gap between young women and young men voters is real

Shawn Fleetwood at Da Fed reports Ohio Launches Insterstate Pacts To Replace Leftist Voter-Roll ‘Management’ Group ERIC

Greg Salsbury at Am Think thinks From Trump On Down, Democrats Are Silencing The Opposition. Samuel Mangold-Lennett at Da Fed has a Report that The FBI Illegally Politicized Background Investigations For Republican Presidential Nominees. Sundance sees a Major Tripwire – Homeland Security Publishes Guidance for Using Artificial Intelligence as Tool for Surveillance, Monitoring and Tracking of American Citizens. "Take out the word “improper” and the admission is, DHS uses AI to profile, target and discriminate.  In the second sentence, DHS currently participates in systemic, indiscriminate and/or large-scale monitoring, surveillance, or tracking of individuals.  The only thing those sentences in the paragraph say, is that DHS will not allow AI to create improper outcomes within a system they outline that already exists."

Ace, in red, all caps BREAKING: THE LAST THREE DEFENDANTS CHARGED IN THE FAKE FBI PLOT TO "KIDNAP" GRETCHEN WHITMER HAVE BEEN ACQUITTED. "Beautiful. Note that the FBI did succeed in getting some other men convicted. These last three political prisoners, however, are now acquitted." At PM, Three men accused of Gretchen Whitmer kidnap plot ACQUITTED. It was pretty clearly a case of entrapment, the FBI provided the plot, the goods, and most of the people involved.

Sundance is concerned, Joe Biden Admin Begs Supreme Court to Let Them Control Social Media Content – Alito Says Maybe. "The Supreme Court on Thursday temporarily blocked a lower court ruling that would place restrictions on the Biden administration’s contact with social media companies." Atop Da Summit,  ‘Weaponized Govt Agencies’ “Don’t Wish Good Things For Me” – Musk Blames Biden Admin For Ukraine-Starlink Block.  “Interests aligned with President Biden probably do not wish good things for me.”

At NYPo, Bud Light could lose retail shelf space as Dylan Mulvaney boycott persists: experts. Becky Noble at Red State reports Dove Soap Hires BLM Activist, Quickly Gets 'Bud Light' Treatment and Calls for Boycott. Hat Hair's KT observes Dove partners with BLM activist who destroyed a white student's life as 'fat acceptance ambassador'. But Bud Light and Dove have very different customer bases. Bruce Bawer at Front Page traces the trail From ‘Pedophile Rights’ to ‘Transgender Rights’ "The curious tale of two gay-activist “heroes” – and a movement that’s been piggybacked not once but twice." at mrc-TV, Okay, Groomers: Non-Profit Caught Pushing LGBTQ Agenda In Schools. From CJ, Parents are Boiling Over. "Recent litigation points to parents’ rising frustrations with gender and sexuality curricula in public schools." At Da Wire, Cleveland Catholic Schools Ban All LGBTQ+ Affiliation And Behaviors.

At Am Spec, Matthew Xiao explains Why Most College Professors Lean Left "Left-wing ideologies have completely taken over America’s college classrooms." Rebeka Zeljko at Da Fed Reports Public Schools Pick Teachers Based On Their Allegiance To Cultural Marxism. The Free Bacon,  From Court Packing to Climate Change, Teachers' Unions Push Progressive Priorities as Test Scores Plummet. "NEA, AFT used summer gatherings to increase 'political power,' critics argue" At Da Signal, The DEI Racket Transformed Our Colleges, Universities. But Tide Could Be Turning. From mrc-TV Leftist Book Ban - 'Inclusive' Book Policy Leaves School Shelves Bare. "A recent policy in Ontario public schools meant to “weed out” offensive and non-"inclusive" books has left more than half the library shelves bare of texts, as parents and students say school officials purge nearly every volume written before 2008. . . . “Inclusive,” and “not harmful.” You know - to liberals who think giving kids a book by Mark Twain is more evil than handing them gay porn." 

At Am Great the great Victor Davis Hanson explores Post-Postmodern America. "Woke Revolution depends on its advocates never having to experience firsthand any of the nonsense they inflict on others."
