Last August 8th the FBI raided former President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago home in search of classified documents he supposedly did not hand over to the National Archives after having left office...outright stole them as far as those on the left are concerned. And so yet another Trump witch hunt began with no definitive outcome to date. And this is no matter that last November, Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed former Justice Department official Jack Smith as the special counsel in charge of investigating both the criminal probe into Trump's “supposed” unlawful taking of classified documents...including some marked “top secret”...as well as to determine if now private citizen Donald J. Trump actually obstructed the federal government's investigation into this matter.Claiming amongst other things that the taking of such documents could seriously jeopardize U.S. relations with other nations, AG Garland never guessed that in his going after Donald Trump that it could someday lead to his possibly having to put the usual array of Democrat double standards aside and officially investigate some in his own party as well. And indeed it has come to that courtesy of the very man who publicly stated to Scott Pelley in a “60 Minutes” interview that he was concerned that “the former president’s improper handling of classified material could compromise sources and methods,” and that the whole thing was “totally irresponsible.”
Look who's calling the “kettle black” as the old saying goes, as Joe Biden's own words are now coming back to haunt, and rightfully so.
Saying that they were there to pack up boxes in order to officially vacate Biden's office at the“Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement” in Washington D.C...affiliated with the University of Pennsylvania...was an office Biden only occupied from 2018 until April 2019 when he started “basement” campaigning for president. And it was here where Biden's own attorneys found in a folder, placed inside a box, that was locked in a closet, ten classified documents clearly marked as “top secret”... documents that dated back to when Biden was Barack HUSSEIN Obama's vice president...documents designated as “sensitive compartmented information”...meaning said information was obtained from intelligence sources including documents that contained U.S. intelligence materials and private briefing memos regarding Ukraine, Iran, the United Kingdom, and China, who after the center was opened saw $54M in Chinese “gifts” being donated to the University of Pennsylvania.And while Joe Biden's attorneys did inform the National Archives about the documents on the same day they were found in the very office that was not authorized for the storage of such documents, it's odd that these folks from the National Archives did not take possession of those documents until the next day no matter Biden's saying that, “They (the attorneys) immediately called the Archives—immediately called the Archives, turned them over to the Archives, and I was briefed about this discovery and surprised to learn that there were any government records that were taken there to that office."
Guess they were giving Biden time to cover his tracks. But no matter as still certain things do not add up with the first being why did it take all this time for Joe Biden to “close up shop” so to speak. Could it simply be that he's arrogant enough to think that he'd never get caught being in possession of “classified documents”...even Joe Biden can't be that foolish. And the second thing and probably paramount above all is the fact that there is an interesting time frame gap that could make the issue of President Trump's document woes actually pale in comparison.Let's start with the fact that the office Biden used to conduct his business until April 2019 was still under construction throughout the entirety of 2017 the very year he left office as vice president, and it was not completed nor opened for occupancy/business until February 2018. And yet from mid-2018 until April 2019, we see a 13-month gap from the time Biden left office in January 2017 until he and the documents moved into his new office. So where were these documents during that time? We believe they were kept in Biden's home in Wilmington, Delaware, which at the time was also home to none other than the infamous Hunter Biden.
So now the first question is if not Joe Biden who exactly sorted through those documents to decide which ones went to the “Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement;” which ones would be stored in his garage; and which ones would stay in their home library? And the second question is did the person who did said sorting have official security clearance? Two possibilities come to mind with the first being Kathy Chung, Biden's executive assistant when he was vice president and the Pentagon's current Deputy Director of Protocol, who by the way has been questioned by law enforcement regarding these very documents.And the second possibility is Chung's dear old friend Hunter Biden himself as Chung's name appears in Hunter Biden’s e-mails over and over again. In fact, it was Hunter Biden who recommended Kathy Chung to “the big guy” for the position of being his executive assistant. And here it must be noted that if Hunter Biden himself was directly involved in the sorting of the documents, did he have any of his “foreign business associates” over to the house while those documents were in the house or actually being sorted? Could the answer to this be yes, with proof being on the supposed “lost” computer...just something to think about.
And if the office document find wasn't enough to give Joe Biden a political and possibly a legal headache, there were other document finds happening within days, for announced on January 11, 2023, just three days after Richard Sauber, Biden’s special counsel, confirmed the media reports about the first batch of documents being found, a second find was announced. And this find came minus the made-for-TV strong-armed raid executed on President Trump's Florida home, when on December 20, 2022 the FBI went to Biden's private Wilmington, Delaware home and ever so nicely “secured classified documents” from there. One particular batch of documents was found buried in a storage space in his garage, while in a search of his actual home other documents were also found, this time in his home library. Of note, just like with Biden's office find this was kept from the public until January 11th...one week ago.
And it was announced just this past Saturday...as we were writing this report...that five more classified documents were found inside the Biden's Wilmington home...again with all being related to his time as Obama's vice president.
But before we continue on one needs to understand that any such finds are indeed of great importance. And why... because as per the Presidential Records Act (44 U.S.C. Chapter 22), “the United States shall reserve and retain complete ownership, possession, and control of Presidential records.” It cannot be stated any clearer or more directly than that, thus meaning that presidents and vice presidents must turn over all government records to the “National Archives and Records Administration” upon their leaving office. And while President Trump, who unfortunately still remains under investigation for doing the same thing Biden has done now, the fact is that Biden should have known better than to retain these types of documents, after all, he not only served two-terms as vice president, but he knew well that this law pertained to the position of vice president as well.
Joe Biden’s own “mishandling”...as the liberal media and Democrats like to call it...of classified materials has surely created a multitude of political problems for both he and his administration, and it's no matter his claiming that all was unintentional, that he had no idea what was in those documents, and that he was fully cooperating with the Justice Department. In fact, due to Republican pressure not only has Mike Turner (R-Ohio), the new Chair of the House Intelligence Committee, written to Avril Haines, the current Director of National Intelligence, asking not only for direct access to all of the classified documents, but that he wants and expects to get a damage assessment report by the intelligence community as well as a briefing on the current status of both the Biden and Trump document confiscations. And this is in addition to both Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), the new chair of the House Judiciary Committee and Rep. Mike Johnson (R-La) demanding that “all documents and communications between the DOJ, FBI, and White House related to the claimed “mishandling of the classified documents” and the appointment of a special council be turned over.Remember, in the case of classified documents, under the law, what's good for the goose must be good for the gander especially when the man who pledged that his would be the most transparent White House in modern American history, has made fools of both he and his party. And it's this plus Republican pressure after documents were found in Biden's private home that on January12th led Attorney General Merrick Garland to deliver remarks “pursuant to Department of Justice regulations governing such matters.” Joined by Special Council John Lausch, the U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Illinois, who was charged with conducted the initial investigation, Garland announced that he had appointed Jack Hur, the former U.S. Attorney for the District of Maryland and former Justice Department official, as Special Council to “investigate whether any person or entity had violated the law in connection with this matter”...thus basically admitting there is a case courtesy of his words that, “Under the regulations, the extraordinary circumstances here require the appointment of a special counsel for this matter.”
In fact, the “extraordinary circumstances” alone will surely provide additional fodder for two years of, thankfully promised, Republican congressional probes and hearings. What will be a major political headache for Joe Biden and crew will be compounded by the fact that neither Joe Biden nor those in his administration can answer even a simple direct question regarding the documents now in question. A recent case in point was Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre's inability to answer the simple question of why was the November document discovery...a discovery made just six days before the midterm election...why was it only disclosed this January. And in her basically flat out refusing to answer that question we'll happily and truthfully answer it for you on her behalf...it's because such a disclosure might have indeed led to a true “red wave.”
And so the president who after the first document discovery was disclosed, voluntarily said to reporters in Mexico after his 3-hour photo-op visit to the southern border that, “I take classified documents, or classified information seriously,” but we guess not serious enough to understand that the two words “classified documents” alone could well spell the end of his 50+ years in politics.
And there are what we believe to be some very suspicious things regarding the timing of all of this, and these are things it seems that nobody wants to place front and center, but we are not afraid to do so. First, we think it’s more than odd, and more to the point... suspicious...that Joe Biden campaigned from his basement in 2020, and has been a near no-show when it comes to answering to reporters for the past two years, but all of a sudden with the classified document scandal now before us, he is suddenly taking questions from the press.
In fact. right after the discovery of said documents was made in his office at the “Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement,” Joe Biden was answering questions and told the media that he didn’t know what was in the documents and he went so far as to state that his attorneys advised him not to ask what was in the classified documents and not to look at the classified documents. Now, why do you suppose he said those things? We believe because he was told to say those things which begs the question...why was he told to say those things?We believe that the liberal elite and Biden's personal puppet master, Barack HUSSEIN Obama, are now orchestrating Biden's comments to the media so as to allow Biden to paint himself into a corner. Think about it...Biden can’t come out now after saying he doesn’t know what the documents are, and suddenly claim that those documents are no big deal. In other words, Biden took the documents in question when he had no lawful right to possess them; he moved them to various places illegally; some were found in a facade of an office at the D.C. branch of the “Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement;” some in his locked garage next to his Corvette; and others in his private home library; but he had no knowledge of them? His words, that’s the point, doesn’t match his actions, and that’s the corner.
If you need further proof that his words to the press are orchestrated, and that he’s only saying what he’s told to say or reading whatever somebody puts in front of him, again watch the video of Joe Biden responding to Peter Doocy a few days ago.
Knowing full well that such a question would be posed, somebody wrote an answer for Biden to read, and he stumbled and slurred his way through reading it. If you were Biden’s handlers and you didn’t want him trapping himself with his own words, you would not allow him to answer any questions related to the classified documents. However, if you were Biden’s handlers and you wanted him to trap himself, you would readily equip him with a brush, a bucket of paint, and direct him to the nearest corner which is exactly what we are seeing now.
Here’s something else we find quite suspicious, as in the way some in the mainstream media are handling Biden today compared to the way that handled him for the past two years. Just last week on CNN...of all places...Don Lemon...of all people...confronted Chuck Schumer regarding the recent classified document revelations. According to Lemon, "According to one justice's official statement, this week offered an incomplete narrative of documents from Biden's time as vice president and reinforced the need for a special counsel. It creates the impression that Biden's team has something to hide.” To that, Schumer tried to soften the topic by saying that we should let the investigators do their jobs, but Lemon came back with, “I have to say this. You seem much more measured about this than with the Trump documents because you called for transparency with the documents. You wanted lawmakers to have access to the documents seized from the former president's residence in Florida.”
Why the sudden change? For the past two years, Lemon would have simply agreed with Schumer and left it at, “there’s nothing to see here, just move along,” but now he’s not running interference for Biden any more. We believe this is because Lemon is only doing what he was told to do by the liberal elite who have been directing mainstream media for decades.
When President Lyndon B. Johnson was in office, and it’s been almost exactly 55 years ago on February 27, 1968 after Walter Cronkite made a decidedly negative report on the CBS Evening News regarding our role in the Vietnam War, that LBJ said, “If I've lost Cronkite, I've lost Middle America.” It was just a few weeks later that LBJ announced, “I shall not seek, and I will not accept, the nomination of my party for another term as your president.”
While we’re not saying that either Don Lemon or CNN carry the clout today that Cronkite and CBS carried 55 years ago, and it is obvious by their ratings that CNN doesn’t speak to “middle America,” they do speak to the liberal voting bloc and they have recently started covering the Hunter Biden laptop scandal as a real story. If others in the mainstream media start taking a more critical approach towards Joe Biden as the scandals mount up, we don’t think it will be very long, perhaps as early as this spring that we hear an announcement from Joe Biden reminiscent of the one LBJ made back in his day. Don’t get us wrong, we do not believe there is a quantum shift in mainstream media ideology in play here, but we do believe we’re seeing a response to what their liberal elite handlers are asking of them.
And finally, why now? Why have document discoveries come to light now rather than when they were first made back in early November 2022? We now know via Merrick Garland that the classified documents were first discovered in the “Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement” just six days before the 2022 midterm election, but weren’t revealed until January 2023. Obviously, the initial discovery was covered up by the media so as not to have a last minute negative effect on the November elections, and it seems the cover up may have remained in place were it not for something else that had been grabbing more of the headlines...“The Twitter Files.”
With every release of a new batch of “Twitter Files” the hole in which the Democrat party finds itself just keeps getting deeper and deeper. A couple of weeks ago, Craig Andresen wrote in his blog, The National Patriot, that the fact that government agencies and government entities up to and including the Biden White House were engaged in the illegal activity of censoring people’s freedom of speech constituted a Constitutional crisis. Now we know that there is a great deal more to come from Elon Musk’s “Twitter Files” including COVID related material, as well as the direct collusion between our government, the White House, and the mainstream media with respect to unconstitutional censorship of the American people.
The longer the “Twitter Files” are allowed to maintain their position at the top of trending headlines, the more dire the situation becomes for the Democrat party as a whole. Something had to be done to knock the Constitutional crisis out of the headlines which we believe is why the Joe Biden classified document scandal was leaked when it was.
Remember, it was CBS and NBC, two mainstream media outlets, which were on the brink of being exposed for colluding with government agencies, government entities, and the Biden White House to censor conservatives and prevent the truth regarding Hunter’s laptop, COVID-19, and so much more from being brought into the light of day.
We believe that the DNC, which we know had been a major player in the Constitutional crisis regarding censorship, is probably also a major player in the leaking of the Joe Biden classified document scandal. Why? Because it would be better for the Democrat party to throw Joe Biden under the proverbial bus, thus preventing him from running again in 2024, than to allow the “Twitter Files” headlines to sink the entire party.
And it’s not just the “Twitter Files” that the liberal elite are worried will topple their hold on power. Just last week, newly elected Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy said of the January 6th hearings held solely by the Democrat party for political purposes, “I think the public should see what happened on that day. I watched what Nancy Pelosi did, where she politicized it. Where, for the first time in the history as a speaker, not allowing the minority to appoint to a committee, to pick and choose. We watched the politicization of this. I think the American public should actually see all what happened instead of a report that’s written for a political basis.”
What McCarthy was talking about was releasing to the public 14,000 hours of security video directly from January 6, 2021. The Democrats have withheld those 14,000 hours of video because it doesn’t match their narrative any more than the liberal lies match the reality of the “Twitter Files,” and we believe the combination of the two, the “Twitter Files” and the January 6th security videos, being at the top of the headlines have sent the liberal elite into panic mode.
Orchestrating such a maneuver takes prep time and strategic timing. It’s not a knee-jerk reaction. The liberal elite knows well that they cannot 25th Amendment Joe Biden out of office without ending up with Kamala Harris as president, and even they don’t want that. If, and only if, they can contain the Joe Biden classified document scandal and carefully manipulate and slow-roll it’s official investigation...and we all know nothing rolls slower than an official special prosecutor investigation...they can effectively not only neuter Biden for the last two years of his only term in office, but prevent Kamala Harris from running their chances in 2024 into the ground. And they can do so while at the same time making it impossible for Joe Biden to mount another campaign from his basement while grooming someone like Gavin Newsom, and his potential (likely) running mate Hakeem Jeffries, over the next year for a full-fledged assault in 2024.
Let us put it another way...for all intents and purposes Joe Biden has become politically expendable. He’s no longer a viable candidate for 2024 in the eyes of the liberal elite due to economic woes, the border crisis, Hunter Biden dealings, and foreign policy walls closing in on him while far too many Americans, even in Biden’s own party, are feeling the strain in their bank accounts and pockets. While the liberal elite know they can’t afford to push Joe out the door now, they also know he has to leave without serving or being given the chance to serve another term.
Joe Biden, chosen as a puppet for an Obama third term in office, has become the liberal elite’s albatross, and while they can’t just relieve him from office given the immediate alternative, we believe they simply have no desire to suffer the fool gladly any longer than the end of his only term in office. And while the investigation from the House Select Committee is just beginning, we doubt the last of Joe Biden’s illegally stashed documents has been discovered, and we may never know all who had access to said documents. But what we do know is that at least some of the documents in question pertained to China and Ukraine, and that Joe, Hunter and James Biden were reaping tens of millions of dollars from those countries through sham business deals. And we also know that the Chinese money trail led to Hunter and Joe Biden as well as to the University of Pennsylvania where the “Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement” was originally founded.
The list of liberals condemning President Trump regarding documents in his possession, documents that he could and did declassify is long indeed, and that list includes Joe Biden himself. But thelist of those same liberals remaining silent regarding Joe Biden’s classified document scandal...a true scandal as Biden had no authority to declassify the documents he kept when removing them from D.C...is equally long, and that silence is deafening.
