Rep. Jordan: Washington Post Quote Shows ‘Media Know Hunter Biden Emails Are Real,’ But Continue Their Cover-Up
CNS News ^ | By Craig Bannister | October 26, 2020 | 2:13pm EDT

A passage in The Washington Post shows that media are determined to call the emails on Hunter Biden’s alleged laptop Russian disinformation – even though they know that they’re not – Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) said Monday.

Jordan, the ranking Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, tweeted:

“The media knows the Hunter Biden emails are real.

“They know it’s not Russian disinformation.

“But they continue to cover up the scandal”

As evidence, Rep. Jordan posted a quote from a “Perspectives” piece by Author Thomas Rid in the October 25, 2020 edition of The Washington Post:

“We must treat the Hunter Biden leaks as if they were a foreign intelligence operation — even if they probably aren’t.”

In “Insisting that the Hunter Biden laptop is fake is a trap. So is insisting that it’s real,” Rid writes:

“Who is right? And how should the nation handle this leak and potential foreign interference at a critical time?

“Take a step back, and the Russian interference of 2016 holds valuable lessons on what to do and what not to do in 2020: We must treat the Hunter Biden leaks as if they were a foreign intelligence operation — even if they probably aren’t.”

“Indeed, there are good reasons to be skeptical of the theory that the laptop is a foreign plot,” Rid argues, providing extensive analysis, in his piece.

“Nevertheless, in the likely continued absence of certainty either way, the Biden leaks deserve the full potential-disinformation treatment,” Rid concludes, adding that “This means three concrete things”:

“Every individual little fact — every email, every text, every photo — must be independently verified,” “The absence of a denial by the Biden campaign or Hunter himself should not be treated as a tacit admission of authenticity,” “Resist the temptation to jump to premature conclusions on “a Russian plant” without good evidence.”

After spending 3 years pushing the false Russian collusion narrative, they need not worry about their credibility......

Let’s parse these words> Why MUST the WaPo treat these leaks this way? This implies that the WaPo is BEING ORDERED to treat these leaks this way. So WHO has that power over the WaPo? Is that power direct, or financial, or BOTH? Also the IMPLIED assumption is that the Foreign Intelligence Operation is...THE RUSSIANS...but could it not actually be the CCP that is pulling the WaPo strings? Even in their lies, the nuggets of hidden truth are exposed.

We must adopt and enforce a known-false presumption (material is not authentic), PLUS add another known-false presumption (Russia) in order to justify the presumption of in-authenticity, and call the whole thing a plan to disrupt our plan to advocate for Biden under the pretext of objective reporting.

Democracy dies in the dark is their business model.

Stories that are inconvenient to their narrative are covered, with a pillow, until they stop moving.

-- The Fake News media is a clear and present danger, to the future viability of our 244 year old constitutional republic. --

The press is an outlet for government voices. A few groups of people are in play. The press and elements of the government are in a state of revolution against the constitution. This has been the case for a long time, and most people are ignorant of the usurpation and cooperation.

The people let this happen. Trust in institutions generally results in abuse of the trust. Both the press and the government perpetrated Russian collusion hoax, and many of those "in on it" are going to skate even being associated with revolution against the public.

Not to let the press off the hook - it is not what it claims to be. Just saying that the press is dancing to its master's voice.

Since when does the liberal media have to bless a story for it to be valid? Never understood that. They’re never going to. Time to regard them as irrelevant, move on and start indicting people.

““We must treat the Hunter Biden leaks as if they were a foreign intelligence operation — even if they probably aren’t.””

There could be some interesting foreign “rumbles in the jungle” happening right now, between conflicted foreign organizations.

All yet speculation of course.

There is some “traffic”, GTV (Taiwan), and it’s billionaire owner, may have credible information, (records and footage), or “proof”, of some horrific activities of leftist political actors, including several Bidens, the Clinton’s, and Obama, all tied to in more than one way to FSB and MSS.

As well, another source tie could involve and include information previously gathered by Epstein, but again in the hands of FSB and MSS, at least.

Even before getting into trouble for raping boys in New York in the 70’s, and before the Epstein/Clinton alliance in the very early 80’s, Epstein was already heavily involved with GRU/KGB and current MSS (Guoanbu) blackmail efforts. As such, information has been in the hands of the Chinese for some time. Some of this also significantly involved Feinstein, Pelosi, Gorbachev, and Putin.

However, as with Epstein, Clinton involvement with KGB and MSS also began in the 70’s, even before his multiple stays in Moscow, before he organized anti US war demonstrations at Oxford, and before he raped at least two young woman at Oxford. GRU and MSS have likely had proof of this all along, which could somehow now have been transferred to GTV (Taiwan).

These things did happen, but that it could get published/broadcasted seems crazy unlikely in the current climate.

It is also possible, that because so many US intel asset’s were literally handed over to MSS and FSB by Obama/Clinton/Biden/Brennan/Clapper, and were literally then hunted down and executed, MSS defectors, or family members of those tortured and killed, may have sacrificed their own lives to get the footage and proof of some of these heinous long held records and crimes into the hands of more capable Western POC’s for distro.

However, this would also mean every MSS, GRU, FSB, BND, DGSI, MI6/SIS, and rogue anti-Trump global socialist CIA agent in the world, is actively and with extreme prejudice, out to end the entire effort to publish/circulate any of it.

No billionaire in the world could survive the effort to stop this from getting out.

Unless already in the hands of someone like Trump, or someone being protected by Trump, any such story simply goes away.

So why am I even bringing it up...

Challenge anyone who claims they are Russian disinformation to explain the timeline.

Emails added by Russians before Biden took it in for repair? How’d they know he would take it in for repair and then abandon it?

Emails added by Russians while in the repair shop? How’d they know Biden would abandon it? How’d they know the shop owner would turn the emails over to Giuliani?

Confronted, most people will not have a clue as to how to answer you; they just drink the CNN Kool-Aid and don’t think one iota for themselves.

You want to see the real Hunter Biden?

**WARNING - ADULT**

What is at this link is crazy. Hunter was a crack head porn star wannabe or something akin to that. I don’t know what this site is about but it’s supposed to be run by Chinese who are anti-ChiCom and Steve Bannon. There is even something inferring that Hunter Biden was messing with one of Obama’s daughters. This stuff is bizarre but it appears a lot of it is real. If you can stomach looking at it.

AGAIN - BEWARE
