So I see one is a felony gun charge, so he will lose his right to own firearms, presumably.


What if daddy pardons him?

I think there are a couple of really good points here:

https://twitchy.com/brettt/2023/09/14/dana-loesch-explains-why-theyre-allowing-the-firearm-charge-against-hunter-biden-n2387274

1) The gun charge is completely separate from anything involving the big guy.

2) This way the big guy can also say that he takes "gun crimes" seriously. So seriously that he's good with his own son getting pinched. Nevermind the slap on the hand/pardon or whatever that follows. This will be used to push their anti-gun agenda.

It's a couple of minor charges, literal slaps on the wrist compared to what he should be facing. He'll plead them out, pay a fine, and never see the doorway to a jail. Then, the DOJ/FBI/et al will quietly let all the other shenanigans fade away under cover of this as their "See, we did something!" moment.

He tried to plead them out with slaps on the wrist.  The judge shot the DOJ down very publicly.

I wonder if they'll offer him a deal to flip and testify against the "Big Guy"?

Who do you think would offer that deal?

On a related note, has Florida recently legalized recreational LSD?

One of many comments that are basically using the same talking points:

https://twitchy.com/brettt/2023/09/14/attorney-has-never-heard-of-anyone-being-federally-indicted-for-hunter-bidens-gun-crime-n2387284

A bunch of Biden defenders are telling us it doesn't count if the gun crime was committed while someone was a drug addict.

And now Psaki is saying the same thing on MSNBC - let the gun charge slide. Poor kid was addicted and it's heartbreaking to the President. They've certainly got a talking point going.

We need to keep illegal guns off the streets!
Well there's an illegal gun in the hands of a felon
Oh, that's different.

Meanwhile the left treats law abiding gun owners like they're the criminals

I was being semi tongue in cheek, but the DNC powers that be are increasingly desperate to get Joe to not run next year, and are running out of time.  Who knows what they'll come up with to clear the way for a real progressive.

Maybe haircut is not out after all. If the dems truly are pushing the old guy out, I actually don't think a haircut/M. Obama ticket would be out of the question. It would absolutely rally progressives. I have no idea what the Independent feelings would be on it. The far left has already kiboshed Kennedy.

Have they truly? The dems seem to have a habit of doing U turns and they know most of their followers will blindly go with the U turns while the media provides almost complete cover

JMO, but from what I've seen, the progressive dems have been much harsher about him than anyone else. You never know what can happen though. Didn't Obama kind of come out of nowhere at the last minute?

Sorta.  He certainly didn't have much name recognition.  He entered the race and polling in fall 2006 with around 20% and held second place and around that 20% till Jan 2008, when he started gaining ground, then by the end of Feb 2008 he was solidly leading the primary race.  That two month sprint to take over the leave is why a bunch of folks remember him "coming out of nowhere".

Hunter suing the IRS

Quote
Hunter Biden has sued the Internal Revenue Service over claims agents illegally released his tax returns.

President Joe Biden's son claims the agency violated his privacy by unlawfully disclosing his records to members of Congress and to the news media.

The lawsuit was filed days in federal court in Washington D.C. after he was hit with three federal firearms charges for allegedly buying a gun while he was addicted to drugs.

It targets two IRS whistleblowers who testified to Congress about the income  Hunter received from his work with a Ukrainian gas company and their concerns about how Hunter was getting special treatment due to his last name.

Quote
Hunter Biden is seeking all the documents involving the disclosure of his tax information, $1,000 for each unauthorized disclosure and attorneys fees.
So they know who else to suicide?

I am not sure how I see this one.  On one hand, the lawsuit will likely just go after the whistleblowers, not the IRS.  On the other hand, it would be nice to have precedent for getting all contact records from the IRS to go after employees leaking documents (since everyone's tax return ends up leaked anyway).  I doubt the 2nd will happen.

IRC 6103(i)(1) provides that, pursuant to court order, return information may be shared with law enforcement agencies for investigation and prosecution of non-tax criminal laws.

Be interesting how that gets interpreted during the lawsuit.

I read an interesting article about the prosecution of Mr. Biden on the issue of firearms purchase and drug use.  The article argued that if the Feds decide to go down that road, there will be hundreds of thousands of pot heads in states where pot is legal that could also be prosecuted.  My neighbor the gunsmith, tells stories of people being denied in his shop because they talked about marijuana use on their form 4473 since it is lawful under Washington state law but not so much under Federal law.

Nice of the Biden administration and its supporters to introduce arguments in favor of supporting States Rights, 10th Amendment Supremacy, and such into this.

Also to conflate the inhalation of a burned leafy plant that is legal in some jurisdictions but not in others, with the mucous membrane intake of a chemically refined dried extract that is universally illegal.

Also, for that article to have any relevance to the pot split legality issue, coke would have to be legal somewhere.

If not, why not?
