It probably would have worked if McConnell had done it for real.
If there really was intelligent life on other planets, we'd be sending them foreign aid.

Conservatives see George Orwell's "1984" as a cautionary tale.  Progressives view it as a "how to" manual.

My wife often says to me, "You are evil and must be destroyed." She may be right.

Liberals believe one should never let reason, logic and facts get in the way of a good emotional argument.

The disclosures on who has been buying his "art" have been interesting. Also the lie about "these are blind sales" I guess falls into, "at this point what does it matter" territory. Freakin' criminals.

Now he shows up

Hunter Biden makes shocking appearance at his own contempt hearing
https://www.foxnews.com/politics/hunter-biden-shows-up-to-house-oversight-meeting-to-consider-resolution-to-hold-him-in-contempt-of-congress

Then he walked out. Speculation is this was a PR stunt for an upcoming documentary he's doing. In the clip where Nancy Mace calls for his arrest, the elderly hippie next to him is laughing, so I wouldn't be surprised if this is indeed a moneymaking stunt.

So I was actually unaware that the creepy, smirking, child molester guy that follows little Biden around everywhere is also his lawyer. I was also unaware just how much money he has "given" Hunter, just cuz they're pals and stuff.

    The report said a jury would find Biden “a well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory”

The legal side of this keeps getting worse the more people dig into the report

Meanwhile The Rolling Stone tries to come tom the rescue

Quote
    The White House is not happy with Special Counsel Robert Hur's report clearing Biden of classified documents charges, calling jabs at the president's memory "prejudicial," "inflammatory," and "gratuitous."

    Story: https://t.co/uCHRpTXfvg pic.twitter.com/KAHE7mTyhs
    — Rolling Stone (@RollingStone) February 8, 2024

Uh, no they didn't clear him.

Quote
“The report uses highly prejudicial language to describe a commonplace occurrence among witnesses: a lack of recall of years-old events,” the attorneys wrote. “Such comments have no place in a Department of Justice report, particularly one that in the first paragraph announces that no criminal charges are ‘warranted’ and that ‘the evidence does not establish Mr. Biden’s guilt.'”
https://twitchy.com/samj/2024/02/09/biden-uses-rolling-stone-to-complain-about-counsel-memory-n2392750

So forgetting when you were VP is a commonplace occurrence now.  :facepalm:
Any chance Biden is faking this or at least some of it to get out of legal hot water?

Now they're claiming the cocaine seen in some of Hunter's photos is sawdust.
And that the reason Hunter bought a gun (remember the form he lied on) was because one of his drug sawdust dealers pointed a gun at him.

I wonder if it was actually CBS behind the document grab, or if it was "recommended" to them by a big brother that they do it?

    Can't make this up. CBS News fires @CBS_Herridge, then steals her notes, and in disgrace is forced to return them.

    A week later, the president of @CBSNews who signed off on that theft receives an industry free speech award. https://t.co/km5O8sVVKd

Given the allegations of special treatment by the Justice Department (including blocking efforts to interview Hunter or search Biden properties), this latest report is obviously quite serious. One would expect that the CIA would simply say that no such meeting related to the Hunter Biden investigation occurred. Instead, the agency responded that it “does not obstruct investigations.” The spokesman added   “CIA does not comment on specific investigations. We can say that CIA cooperates with law enforcement partners and does not obstruct investigations. CIA also fully and routinely cooperates with our oversight committees and will continue to do so.”

Wait a minute. Wouldn't spokesman for the CIA actually be a spooksman? Yeah, I'm pretty sure that's right.
