Doesn't seem like we're heading towards any big theme so far this week, just a lot of old threads continuing to unravel. An interesting event though, as at least one SS agent fired shots at car thieves attempting to steal the SS limousine outside Naomi Biden's (Hunter's daughter) Georgetown apartment. Interestingly there seems to have been no threat to life here, except from the SS agent, who, by all reports, appears to have missed, and whose bullets flew off elsewhere into Georgetown. The would be car thieves escaped in a red car. From the Wombat's In The Mailbox: 11.13.23, EBL, Secret Service Agent Shoots To Protect Biden’s Granddaughter’s SUV?.

In the Biden Crime Family news, WaEx's Kaelan Deese wonders Will Hunter Biden's fight against federal firearm violations reach the Supreme Court?. Hunter's firearm violations, while egregious, and enough to get right-wing radical thrown in the hoosegow, interest me a lot less than the influence peddling nonsense with his Dad and uncle (and apparently any one else with the family name). Margot Cleveland at Da Fed is getting fed up with Willfully Blind David Weiss Pinky who Promises Political Favoritism Didn’t Affect Hunter Biden Probe. NewsMax reports Jim Jordan thinks an Impeachment Decision Likely Early Next Year. Michael Goodwin at NYPo thinks the Likely impeachment adds to feeble Joe Biden’s already brutal presidency
From Fox, Biden calls David Axelrod a 'p----' in private as ex-Obama adviser voices election concerns: report "Politico's Jonathan Martin hammered Biden's name-calling strategy and said it wasn't going to help him beat Trump."

Hat Hair cites NBC, QAnon Shaman Runs as Libertarian for Congress. Capt. Ed worries "From what we’ve seen of Chansley, he should really spend his time focusing on his mental health rather than expose himself to more public scrutiny. For the record, AZ-08 is an R+10 district in the Cook index and votes heavily GOP in presidential cycles. Chansley’s bid could split the Republican vote in the next House race, if he gets enough funding to get off the ground, in a way that a normal Libertarian candidate probably couldn’t."

Ace comes around, Feds Seize NYC Mayor's Phones, Suspect That Adams Fast-Tracked a Turkish Diplomatic Mission In Exchange for Cash "The FBI is Seizing on texts that indicate that Adams did favors for foreign cash. There's less to this story than the headline, to be honest. The texts don't establish much. There's a suspicion that Turks contributed to Eric Adams illegally but we don't know for certain he did favors in exchange for that money." Hat Hair's Jazz Shaw says There Might Be More to That Eric Adams Corruption Story "This still doesn’t sound like the FBI has uncovered any type of Watergate-level scandal directly involving the Mayor. The consulate is in Admas’ old borough so they asked the borough president to move a minor piece of bureaucratic paperwork through the system for them and he made a call. If the straw donation allegations prove to be true, there will be some people in serious trouble, most likely including Brianna Suggs. It could possibly even impact Adams’ campaign treasurer. But there still doesn’t seem to have been any sort of “arrangement” or understanding between Adams and the Turks. If nothing further is revealed, this could still wind up being a big nothingburger."

Gay Israeli Soldier Hoists Pride Flag in Gaza. Capt. Ed, "I’d bet the IDF doesn’t mind this either, and may have encouraged it. What better way to remind the Left in the West what Hamas and Palestinian culture truly means for any sort of heterodoxy from radical Islam?
