Flotsam and Jetsam - Hunter Indicted on Gun Charges

 As was telegraphed a few days ago, Capt. Ed at Hat Hair reports Hunter Biden indicted on three felony gun charges.  "The first two counts both allege false statements on the same form for the same gun relating to his drug use. The third charges Hunter for “knowingly possess[ing] a firearm” despite knowing his ineligibility to do so." Da Caller, Hunter Biden Indicted On Three Gun Charges. Ace, Hunter Biden Fake-Indicted on Three Federal Firearms Charges -- But Still Not a Single Charge for Representing a Foreign Power Without Registering. "And no refiled tax evasion charges, either."Dave Strom at Hat Hair, Hunter Biden indicted for gun charge? Meh. Sundance at CTH,  Hunter Biden Indicted on Federal Firearms Charges – But Don’t Expect FARA Charges, noting that DOJ just dropped FARA charges on Michael Flynn's business partner.  I fully expect these to be pled down to misdemeanors, and wouldn't object to it strenuously. Technically, he's a first offender, and that's way most of those would be handled. I'm much more interested in seeing tax and FARA violations pursued, because those are far more likely to be linked to "The Big Guy." I'm guessing that Garland/Weiss will make every effort to let it go with this. 

At Breitbart has a Watchdog Memo: ‘Irregularities’ Found in DOJ Investigation of ‘F—ing Spy Chief of China,’ Biden Associate Patrick Ho. Margot Cleveland at Da Fed reports the IRS Whistleblower Gives Congress More Documents, Boosting His Credibility And Busting The DOJ’s and via the Wombat's In The Mailbox: 09.13.23 (Evening Edition),  FBI Agent Trying To Discredit Whistleblower Testimony Blew His Own Credibility In Covering For Weiss

Also at the Wombat's In The Mailbox: 09.13.23 (Evening Edition), Dave Harsanyi at Da Fed notes There’s More Than Enough Evidence For A Joe Biden Impeachment Inquiry. Da Fed's John Davidson, thinks Impeaching Biden Is The Right Call, But Don’t Stop With Him, featuring a picture of Garland. Dan Chaitin at Da Wire note how the White House Calls On Media To Help Fight Against Biden Impeachment Inquiry. Matt Margolis at PJM is amused when a CNN Fact Check Hilariously Proves Case for Biden Impeachment Inquiry. At NYPo the divine Ms. Devine notes the Media’s covert protection of scandal-plagued Bidens comes to light and yet they still push president, Hunter’s innocence. Matt Vespa at Town Hall, Speaker McCarthy Humiliates Reporter in Tense Exchange About Biden Impeachment, reporter pulls the "no evidence" card, forced into admitting the evidence. At Da Caller, ‘Incredibly Inappropriate’: KJP Snaps At Reporter Interrupting Her About Biden Impeachment Inquiry. From the Babylon Bee, Journalists Anxiously Wait For Email From Biden Administration With Today's Instructions

John Schindler at WaEx, says The deep state tells Biden to retire, citing WaPoo's David Ignatius. Ace, Leftwing Democrat Shill "Journalists" Call for Biden to Step Aside, Scheme to Replace Kamala Harris. "The ultimate braindead robotic liberal DC Establishment advocate David Ignatius says it's time for Biden to put aside his vanity and let someone else run as the Democrat nominee." Althouse reads the NY Mag,  "[W]ere Biden to step down, Harris would become the Democratic front-runner.... Yet her conspicuous weaknesses would ensure a contested primary."  "Writes Eric Levitz, in "The Case for Biden to Drop Kamala Harris" (NY Magazine).  If this is to be done, it would require Kamala Harris to withdraw and to assert that it was her decision. But I think even if they could convince her to put on this show, she wouldn't be able to make the assertion credibly. She's a terrible speaker. She'd look elbowed out. It would be awful." Bob Spencer at PJM, Dems Prepping for a New Veep? Pelosi Repeatedly Refuses to Say Harris Is Old Joe's Best Running Mate

At Teh Wombat's In The Mailbox: 09.13.23 (Afternoon Edition), EBLBiden lies that he was at 9/11 the day after the attacks, Twitchy, Ian Milhiser Worries That “Biden’s Too Old” Is The New “But Her Emails”, Louder With Crowder John Fetterman offers odd reaction to the Biden impeachment inquiry and… what the deuce is that on your face?, Legal Insurrection, Biden Wants to Take Land From Marine Sanctuary for Billionaire Dem Donor’s Wind Farm, and at Victory Girls: A Biden Lie So Big Even The Fact-Checkers Had To Admit It. Alpha News, Former White House press secretary says media have ‘become activists for a cause’, Ari Fleischer. Capt. Ed, "They’re certainly proving it this week, with major media outlets rushing to shape their coverage to the White House talking points on the impeachment inquiry."

Jordan Boyd at Da Fed observes that As Inflation Spikes Again, Biden And Media’s Boasts About Record Price Hikes ‘Cooling’ Are Offensive As Ever. PJM's Rick Moran sees Inflation Jumps in August As Warning Signs Blink Red at the Fed. At Breitbart, American Auto Workers ‘Feel Abandoned’ by Democrats as Biden Agenda Shifts Billions to Companies.

Stacy McCain on the Susanna Gibson story You Stay Classy, Virginia Democrats! 

The best part of this scandal involving Susanna Gibson, a Democrat running for a seat in the Virginia House of Delegates (and there are many good parts) is that Luke Rosiak of the Daily Wire apparently got paid to watch the candidate’s “HotWifeExperience” videos:
A Democrat candidate for state office in Virginia appears to have been raising money for a “good cause” by performing graphic sex acts online, where she told viewers she liked “being choked” and said they could watch her urinate for the right price, according to material reviewed by The Daily Wire.
(“Material reviewed” = watching porn, because “research.”)

 At Am Think, George Shuster Thinks about The Mathematics of Democrat ‘Justice’ "When March 4 rolls around, the prosecution will have had about 38 months to prepare its case since the events of January 6, 2021. The Trump defense team will have had a little over six months since indictment. That is a disparity of over six to one, advantage offense."  Also, Harry G. Hutchison thinks about Weaponizing the Fourteenth Amendment.  Twitchy, 'IMMEDIATE recusal': Techno Fog BUSTS Judge Chutkan with her OWN WORDS on Trump in bombshell of a thread. NewsMax, Prospect Fading for Quick Start of Trump Georgia Trial. Da Caller reports Judge Shoots Down Fani Willis’ Bid For October Trump Trial. Brandon Morse at Red State hears Putin Weigh In On the Trump Witch Hunt and Point Out a Sad Reality About America's Political System "For us, what is happening in today's conditions, in my opinion, is good," said Putin. "Because it shows the rottenness of the American political system which cannot pretend to teach others about democracy," he added to applause from a watching crowd. "Everything that is happening with Trump is the persecution of a political rival for political reasons," he continued. "That's what it is. And this is being done in front of the US public and the whole world. They simply exposed their internal problems." I&I, on The Real Threat to Democracy. Josh Blackmun and Seth Tillman discourse on Sweeping and Forcing the President into Section 3: A Response to William Baude and Michael Stokes Paulsen. I tried but MEGO. More practically, Mike Davis at Da Fed on Here’s What The House GOP Should Do Right Now To Fight Democrats’ Republic-Crushing Lawfare. "Democrats are using every lever of power they have. Republicans should do the same."

Never-anybody-but-Trump Sundance is pleased by a  Murdoch Fox News Poll – Trump Continues Massive Dominance, DeSantis Loses Ground Again.

Ace is outraged, (red italic font with the crack smoking flaming skull), Whistleblower: The CIA's Initial Determination of the Origins of Covid Was That It Had Escaped from a Chinese Lab, But They Offered Their Experts a Big Cash Reward to Change Their Report "Via John Sexton, who provides a quick recap of the various US agencies' stance on the lab-leak theory fact. The Energy Department believes it came from a lab, as does the FBI. The CIA claims it can't tell either way. Except... A whistleblower says they did at first determine covid-19 came from a lab. Rather like the authors of the "Proximal Origins" hoax paper, first they did believe that covid was manufactured in a lab, before suddenly changing their minds. And for the same reason, too -- money." Also, Supreme Court May Rule on the "Overcriminalization" of January 6 Political Prosecutions "Good news, if it actually happens." At Da Caller, The Supreme Court Could Weigh In On Alleged ‘Overcriminalization’ Of Jan. 6 Cases. Life News, Lila Rose: Joe Biden’s Justice Department is Unjustly Persecuting Pro-Life Activists. Capt. Ed comments "I’d support keeping the FACE Act in place if it were enforced equally, ie, with those attacking pro-life facilities were investigated and prosecuted as vigorously. Under Joe Biden’s DoJ and Merrick Garland’s leadership, however, only pro-lifers get prosecuted — and have the book thrown at them. If this law can’t be enforced in an even-handed manner, then it needs to be repealed and let local law enforcment deal with these issues — which is what should have been done in the first place." I wouldn't, it's free speech. Enforce assault or battery charges on people who physically obstruct people anywhere.
