Hunter Biden and the Big Tech information coup
The Spectator ^ | 14 Oct 2020 | Dominic Green

Posted on 10/14/2020 3:43:48 PM PDT by Rummyfan

The internet was supposed to democratize information, but we now see that it has privatized it

There is nothing to see. In 2014, Hunter Biden joined the board of the Ukrainian energy company Burisma on a reported salary of $50,000 a month. Hunter knows nothing about the energy business, and he doesn’t seem to speak Ukrainian.

‘I have never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings,’ Joe Biden said in 2019, though he had been photographed playing golf in the Hamptons with Hunter and another Burisma board member, Devon Archer, in 2014. But there is nothing to see.

On Wednesday, the New York Post published an email from Vadim Pozharskyi, an adviser to the Burisma board, from April 2015. Pozharskyi thanks Hunter for ‘inviting me to DC and giving an opportunity to meet your father and spend some time together’. But there is nothing to see.

In December 2015, eight months after Hunter introduced his father to Pozharskyi, Vice President Biden pressured Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko and its prime minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk to fire prosecutor general Viktor Shokin. Joe Biden has publicly boasted that he secured Shokin’s firing by threatening to withhold a $1 billion loan guarantee. Shokin claims that he was working on ‘specific plans’ to investigate Burisma’s board, Hunter Biden included. Though we hear Biden’s boast, there is nothing to see.

A clear case of quid pro quo. But no one in the MSM will ever ask Demented Joe about it. Further, they are actively working to squash it.

As someone said on Instapundit - the modern media exists for the purpose of killing any story detrimental to Democrats.

‘Quis custodiet iposes custodes,’ Juvenal asked: ‘Who will watch the guardians?’ In the view from Silicon Valley, the public are too dumb to be trusted to make up their own minds. What we see in Facebook and Twitter’s response to the Post’s story amounts to a deliberate attempt to intervene in a democratic election. If, as we’ve been told for the last three decades, information is the new currency, then this is a kind of information coup: the withholding of information by censorship, the pushing of information as propaganda.

I don’t want to see government tell Twitter or Facebook how to behave.

That would be the worst possible outcome.

Just revoke Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act.

And then let nature take its course.

Right now these companies have their cake, and they eat it too.

the quickest way to strike back against Big Tech like Twatter, Facecrook, etc is to cut off their access to cheap H1B labor...

Trump knows this.

So, uhhhh, I guess Trump had cause to have that telephone conversation with the Ukrainian president.

I seem to remember some Democrats impeached him for that as an abuse of power.

The FBI and DOJ continue to hide all evidence of wrongdoing of Obama, Biden, and the Clintons. Wray and Barr are in as deep as everyone before them. They are complicit in all the coverups and in actuality working all angles to see Trump defeated.

Inexplicably, Trump agrees to this treatment.

I sometimes wonder who is president.

WTF is this straddling the Swamp?

I don’t want to regulate Twitter and Facebook.

I want them trust-busted and gone.

They have attacked the American people during an election—that is treason and cannot be tolerated.

The toilet is backing-up, and the Biden Organized Crime Family is bubbling to the surface. Unfortunately, I don’t think anything criminal is going to result. The Deep State Swamp will wrap its tentacles around them, and protect them.
