    Here’s John Solomon’s story, which includes a link to the whole report, with many new damning episodes of Biden corruption. The WSJ this morning has a story but subtitles it that it fails to support PDJT’s accusation that Biden got the prosecutor fired to protect his son. The real BLM, Big Lie Media, is all in with bringing about the Revolution via Harris – Biden installation. https://justthenews.com/accountability/russia-and-ukraine-scandals/senate-report-slams-bidens-conflicts-interest-flags

      The report notes that Hunter Bides sent ” thousands of dollars to individuals who have either:

      1) been involved in transactions consistent with possible human trafficking;

      2) an association with the adult entertainment industry; or

      3) potential association with prostitution. Some recipients of those funds are Ukrainian and Russian citizens.”

      The report also notes that Hunter Biden has sent funds to nonresident alien women in the United States who are:

      – citizens of Russia and Ukraine

      – those women then subsequently wired funds they have received from Hunter Biden to individuals located in Russia and Ukraine.

      – The records also note that some of these transactions are linked to what ‘appears to be an Eastern European prostitution or human trafficking ring

    People in the oil-rich nation of Venezuela are reportedly riding donkeys as an alternative method of transport amid chronic gasoline shortages caused by the socialist regime’s destruction of the state-run oil company.

    My other side bet is that Hidem will never even appear in the same room as President Trump. Ever.

      It will all depend if they can juice up Joe B with chemicals that keep him coherent for 2 hours. The media moderator will defend him against President Trump and Joe B just has to stick to the script (he already has the topics and questions). Plus, the media will be split screening and doing cut aways in real time to “fact check” every syllable spoken by the President. The media also has the “cut to commercial” card to play when needed.

      It is all a matter of finding the the right chemical cocktail, if possible. Also, they already have “independent” drug test results showing Joe B is clean. They can always pull the plug if the chemicals will not work and the cheat by mail looks solid enough to carry the day.

      The first step coming, soon, is the demand remote debates, candidates at different cites or separate studios due to China Virus resurgence. This puts Joe B back on the teleprompter.

          From the Presidential Historian to JFK, Michael Beschloss, in the article you cited Seneca,

          “Even in small doses, amphetamines cause side effects such as nervousness, garrulousness, impaired judgment, overconfidence, and, when the drug wears off, depression. “

          The first part pretty much sums up Sleepy Joe’s personality. The early “Lids” on sleepy Joe could be to compensate for withdrawal / depression from an amphetamine buzz. I seem to remember BHO had special “medicines” delivered to him when he first entered the White House.

            The amphetamines, aka “speed” are some of the most dangerous and terrible drugs ever invented. Whatever high that you get in the beginning is not worth the crash that comes when it wears off. It is beyond depression, it is so painful that suicidal thoughts are not uncommon.

            Knowing what we know about these drugs, it is totally elder abuse to be injecting Hidem with them. What does it say about his own wife to allow them to do this to her husband? And they are all in on it.

      The debates were discussed at a dinner party I attended last night. The eight persons there were unanimous in thinking Biden will opt out by 9/26, with a CV-19 positive test (himself or someone who is physically close to him) being the most likely excuse.

      Other theories are that Biden’s campaign will be stipulating no real-time, in-person contact with the President, submitting questions to him prior to the event, and allowing him to prerecord his answers.

      When the Trump campaign refuses the aforementioned requirements, the President will be aggressively accused by the Biden campaign and media of being responsible for the debate being cancelled.

      Our discussion concluded by guessing when the Biden campaign would announce the debate escape plot, and 9/25 or 9/26 were the most likely dates; close enough to the 9/29 date to make impractical any negotiations or other arrangements. Subsequent debates will be cancelled due to feigned contempt by the Biden campaign.

      They can’t use covid as an excuse because he will have to quarantine for 2 or 3 weeks without staff and advisors. How will he handle the tech without people in the room? Quarantine means nobody in or out of his area. If he somehow speaks to the public, will he have symptoms? It would all be just more questions about his health until his miraculous recovery. If he does that it will show that frail old people have less to fear from covid since he recovered. No, can’t have that.

      If he simply calls in at the last minute and says, “emergency” that won’t work either. A car crash? No, another health issue. Accusing Trump of some horrible action may work but if he can;t stand up to Big Orange, how will he handle the world when things go awry?

      Maybe the plan is to have him have a senior moment on stage, which will be the trigger to replace him as the candidate. But voting has started so any votes for him could be invalid. No, he may show up but will claim covid “concerns” and reasonably request separate rooms with nobody other than close advisors allowed so that they can pull out the prompter.

        Biden cannot afford to show up live at a debate now. Right now the MSN is hiding the news of the $3.5 million wired to Hunter by the Russian oligarchy and Hunter’s use of the $$ to have sex with trafficked women.

        The first question from PDJT is,”Where’s Hunter” and “Did you know he was engaging in sex trafficking? ” – and then it’s all in front of even the most bubble wrapped MSDNC viewer.

        SARS (the $$ kind) are hard evidence in black and white. No denying the transaction. No good explanation for it.

        What are the odds that the Russians don’t have a Hunter Biden sex tape??

        Slim and none?

      My first take is that Hunter (and other relatives) were taking in large amounts of money from all over the globe for no apparent service or product, with the implication that foreign interests were buying influence.

      This one section (page labeled 65) caught my eye (my bold):

      The Treasury records acquired by the Chairmen show potential criminal activity relating to transactions among and between Hunter Biden, his family, and his associates with Ukrainian, Russian, Kazakh and Chinese nationals. In particular, these documents show that Hunter Biden received millions of dollars from foreign sources as a result of business relationships that he built during the period when his father was vice president of the United States and after. In addition to providing new and descriptive details about the nature, origin and extent of payments from Burisma Holdings to Hunter Biden, the documents acquired by the Committees also shed light on a much broader array of questionable financial transactions involving Hunter Biden, other members of the Biden family, and their associations with foreign nationals. These foreign nationals have questionable backgrounds that have been identified as being consistent with a range of criminal activities, including but not limited to organized prostitution and/or human trafficking, money laundering, fraud, and embezzlement.

    Observations from a Smaller Limb.

    PMI: Purchasing Managers Index. Is a survey of purchasing managers conducted in two forms. Flash before the primary news releases of the month and final. I think of it as a very good leading indicator as to where we are going economically. It also covers both manufacturing and service industries.

    An index reading of 50 or above shows an expanding economy , below 50 shows a contracting economy. I follow the trends over a three month period as a rule, monthly blips either way are of less concern. The survey ask about business conditions including employment, new orders, prices, production, inventories and supplier deliveries.

    September Flash By Markit and previous final readings since February of this year.

    U.S.
    Manufacturing:
    September: 53.5 🏆
    August; 53.6 🏆
    July: 51.3 🏆
    June; 49.6
    May; 39.8
    April; 36.9
    March; 49.2
    February; 50.8

    U.S. Services:
    September: 54.6 🏆
    August; 54.8 🏆
    July: 49.6
    June; 46.7
    May; 36.9
    April; 27.0
    March; 39.1
    February; 49.4

    Commentary:
    It is quite apparent that we are rebounding from the lows of April. All sectors of the economy are continuing their recovery. We should see additional improvements in the coming employment numbers as we end the third quarter. Upcoming economic numbers released at the end of October right before the re-election will be harder for the press to hide, though we know they will try. Additionally the longer the blue states continue to suppress their economies the higher the pent up demand will drive us to some incredible numbers as we move forward. I have previously been posting comparisons with other countries but decided a longer view solely focused on the U.S. is more important as we near the Re-election.

      In 2016, there was going to be a new president, because Obama had already served two terms, and was a lame duck.

      The Gender Feminist–New Left–Marxist Axis Attacks All Civil Society
      19 Sep 2020

      https://mises.org/wire/gender-feminist-new-left-marxist-axis-attacks-all-civil-society

      Gender feminism, the New Left, and Marxism (FLM) are often said to be politically aligned, and, certainly, there is significant overlap. But does a political FLM axis exist?

      The answer is important. A surreal dynamic has politicized every crevice of society and decent people now need to defend themselves against groundless accusations of racism, misogyny, and other “hate” crimes in order to keep their jobs, their reputations, and their futures. An understanding of where the dynamic originates gives them more of a fighting chance. The answer begins with defining FLM and describing their interconnection.

      (Of necessity, the ensuing analysis is highly simplified.)

        An interesting article at Von Mises, Winston. The Bizarro World these folks have created for themselves is truly remarkable. We all learn from each other here on the Treehouse.

        In the last days, I’ve just learned that Structural Racism is part of Post-Modernism which preaches a rejection of logic and reason as being tools of White Suppression. Sheeeesh!.

        Now I learn, “Gender feminism’s successor relies heavily on intersectionality, which is a complex form of class analysis. It is the way in which a person’s different identities interconnect to define that person’s level of oppression. For example, a woman is said to be subjugated by men. A black woman is doubly subjugated, by both men and whites, and has a louder voice. A transgendered black woman…and so on. In calculating a person’s total oppression, different aspects of her or his identities are added together. A black male gains points because of his race. A white feminist loses points because her race. But the enemy of them all remains the same—white male capitalism”.

        I’m sure there’s an app for calculating how racist or oppressed you are

      Actually, I read somewhere that President Trump is considering an Executive Order preventing Joe Biden from running for POTUS! I scanned the article for more info., but I did not see anymore info., other than the Headline. I think that he said it in one of his recent rallies!

    Attorney Robert Barnes claims that Coney-Barrett is a Big Government Statist who voted for COVID Lockdowns. That’s a deal-breaker for me. Barnes says she is basically John Roberts in a skirt–and that’s a pretty bold claim, since John Roberts is already John Roberts in a skirt.

    He recommends Barbara Lagoa or perhaps Allison Jones Rushing.

        Thanks. Yes, I read the pros and cons. To me, they do not acquit. This is my judicial model:

        In 1857, the Dred Scott case came before the Supreme Court. Chief Justice and Democrat Roger Taney wished to wreck the new Republican Party and settle the slavery issue on terms favorable to the South. When the Court’s majority under Taney asserted that the black man had no citizenship rights “that any white man was bound to respect”, that was too much for Associate Justice Benjamin Curtis. Justice Curtis eviscerated the majority’s opinion in his dissent.

        Methodically, Curtis proved that the voting and citizenship rights of black freemen had been recognized by at least five states at our Founding; and that Congress had acted fourteen separate times under seven different presidents, beginning with Washington, to limit the spread of slavery in the territories. As a matter of principle, he and fellow dissenter Justice John McLean then resigned from the court.

        Justice Taney may have had some precedent and legal technicalities on his side. They have their place. But Justices Curtis and McLean had the truth of the Declaration and the Constitution.

        So it is with these Permanent Emergency COVID Martial Laws. HELL No.

    The Joe/Hunter Biden on the corruption and payoffs, etc. I haven’t read, but I wonder if someone pushed this out now just days before the debate with Chrissy WallAss just to see if he brings it up. Or if Trump brings it up and Joe forced to respond or Chrissy obviously runs point for Joe? If this put out now, someone is strategically dropping things. I like it and bodes well for the future drops.

    I am going to probably get in the CTH penalty box with some, but how much different are Merrick Garland and Amy Barrett? First I am not suggesting PDJT nominate Garland. Second I acknowledge religious and political beliefs. But over and above the drama of a SCOTUS pick and assuming our government was not partisan dysfunctional, how much different would our country be with ACB over Garland? Both seem in the middle to me. Both Gorsuch and Kavanaugh appear centrist as well.

    I happen to think that “Conserve” in the word “Conservative” should apply to our Constitution and Bill of Rights more than anything. Of course I trust PDJT on this. He has sure as hell earned 3 SCOTUS picks. However I would love feedback from this group.

        Exactly, Garland would have “middle of the roadly” supported every liberal position. The difference we are looking for is who follows the law, rather than what they feel the outcome should be. That just normally happens to be a conservative.

        But someone said over the weekend how about Richard Grenell and I thought hey! PDJT can use Grenell other places but how about Larry Ellison or Peter Thiel. We gotta deal with section 230

    Contrarian theory regarding the Supreme Court vacancy: Trump is letting ACB be cast as the favorite so the Left can froth at the mouth only to then announce Lagoa or Larsen as his choice.

    Democrats would have a tough time attacking Lagoa since she got 80 votes the last time she was put up. Will be interesting to watch. The Barnes tweets about ACB’s rulings certainly give me pause.

    I also think it’s important to have hearings and I need to disagree with Rush and others. Watching the Left go insane on TV will work against them and I think the American public will have more confidence in the process and the selection if we have hearings vs. just having one Senate vote.

    Ruth Bader Ginsburg Is in the Dock Today

    We know for certain that right now, the late Supreme Court justice knows the truth of abortion, a truth she assiduously avoided in her professional life.

    And Ginsburg had plenty of time in her career to vote in favor of killing unborn babies. One of the most important and revealing was the case called Gonzalez v. Carhart, on the partial-birth abortion ban. Partial-birth abortion is the act of killing a child as she is being born. In some cases, her entire body—except for the head—is out of the birth canal and into the world. The abortionist then reaches in and stabs the child’s head and delivers the dead baby. Imagine the little feet kicking and then going limp with the cranial stab. The Supreme Court ruled in favor of the ban on this despicable procedure.

    Ginsburg dissented.

    Sharyl is a very solid reporter and isn’t known for spreading rumors or irresponsible use of anonymous sources. I’ll believe it when I see it but this is hopeful.

    According to shipwreckedcrew, look for something today or tomorrow ahead of something more significant. We will see what we will see.

    In the effort to persuade those close to me about the dangers presented to the Constitution by the Left, I fear the FBI is one of the Left’s most effective weapons. The Portland riots and fires touch several people close to me. At the height of the fires, when reports of arson were coming fast and furious, the Portland FBI Field Office issued this press release, purporting to debunk the notion that Leftist extremists were involved. https://www.fbi.gov/contact-us/field-offices/portland/news/press-releases/fbi-releases-statement-on-misinformation-related-to-wildfires

    Although I believe the likelihood that Leftists have been fueling these fires is very high, I can’t prove it to Non-Trump supporters, when the FBI has pre-emptively labeled the notion a “conspiracy theory.” Is the FBI investigating Antifa, or covering for it?

    Same with the Wuhan Flu. Li-Meng Yan snuck out of Hong Kong to blow the whistle. Her first video (Epoch Times, I think), revealed that she had shared all her evidence with the FBI. As did Dr. Judy Mikovits, per her book Plague of Corruption. No doubt sent to some great “evidence repository” that no one ever looks at. My brother sent me a Yahoo News clip smearing Li-Meng Yan as “working for recently-arrested Steve Bannon.”

    Barr isn’t doing enough.

    When the Big Lie Media labels every argument and every point as “without evidence,” “extreme right wing” and “conspiracy theory,” and repeats it over and over, there needs to be a grand come-up-ance. If not for them, it will surely follow for the Patriots. As the SWAT Team take down of Roger Stone (live on CNN) and the 150 yacht arrest of Steve Bannon show, the Left does these public shamings with great fanfare.
