Thursday, October 22, 2020 -- "The Big Guy," Election Interference, Barrett Advances

"The Big Guy"
Tony Bobulinski, another business associate of Hunter Biden, has come forward to corroborate details discovered on Hunter's laptop. 
Bobulinksi is listed as the recipient of several messages related to the Bidens' China dealings.  He has confirmed that the messages are genuine, not part of a Russian disinformation scheme, and that "the Big Guy" referenced in one message is in fact Joe Biden.
He also rejects Joe Biden's claim that he never discussed his son's business dealings with him.  Here's what he told Fox News:
"I've seen firsthand that that's not true, because it wasn't just Hunter's business, they said they were putting the Biden family name and its legacy on the line.  The Biden family aggressively leveraged the Biden family name to make millions of dollars from foreign entities even though some were from communist controlled China." 
That the Bidens have "aggressively leveraged" the family name is not new news.  Last year, the left-leaning Politico wrote a lengthy article exposing "Biden Inc," and how James Biden, the former vice president's brother, once bragged, "We've got people all around the world who want to invest in Joe Biden."
We're also learning that the FBI seized Hunter's laptop last year as part of a money laundering investigation.  As we have previously reported, one of his former business associates is already in jail and a second is awaiting sentencing.
Now, here's the latest revelation from Molly Hemingway, one of the most trusted conservative reporters in Washington. The Federalist does not publish what it cannot prove. 
Hemingway reports that The Federalist has obtained text messages in which Bobulinski was warned not to mention Joe Biden's involvement, and that Hunter's foreign dealings were a major risk factor for his father's presidential ambitions.
My friends, here's what you must understand:  This scandal isn't about Hunter Biden.  It is all about Joe Biden exploiting his public service to enrich himself and his family.  And while he was doing it, he devoted his career to promoting globalism and trade deals that sent our manufacturing jobs to China. 
Joe Biden is a corrupt creature of the Washington Swamp!
Election Interference
There was breaking news late yesterday about Russian and Iranian attempts to interfere in the election and influence its outcome.  Predictably, the media have it exactly backwards.
Some Democrat voters received threatening emails that appeared to come from the Proud Boys.  The messages read, "Vote for Donald Trump or else!"  Other messages included the recipients home address and stated, "You will vote for Trump on Election Day or we will come after you." 

These messages did not come from the Proud Boys.  They came from the Islamic Republic of Iran. 
Some pundits insanely suggested that this was evidence that Iran was helping Trump.  If there's one regime in the world that most wants to see Trump defeated, it's the mullahs of Iran.  There is no logical explanation for why Iran would want to help Donald Trump. 
He has crushed their economy with biting sanctions.  He took out their terrorist mastermind, Qassem Soleimani.  He has strengthened our alliance with Israel, and has broken the decades-old stalemate of Arab hostility toward the Jewish state.  But the ayatollah has every reason to want Joe Biden back in power.
The Obama/Biden Administration gave Iran billions of dollars, and Joe Biden wants to cut another deal with Iran.  The Democrat Party is increasingly hostile toward Israel, and largely condemned Trump for taking out Soleimani.
Like so many progressives, Iran was committing fake hate crimes with these fake emails in order to smear Donald Trump and his supporters.  They knew the offensive emails would get leaked to the press. 
Sure enough, the Lincoln Project, a group of NeverTrumpers, cited the fake Proud Boys emails as evidence of the hate among Trump supporters.  I wonder if the Lincoln Project coordinated its efforts with Iran. 
But just to clear up any confusion about the issue, Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe said yesterday, "We have already seen Iran sending spoofed emails designed to intimidate voters, incite social unrest and damage President Trump."
In other words, Iran is helping Joe Biden!
Debate Night
The final presidential debate will take place tonight at 9:00 PM ET at Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee.  The debate will be moderated by Kristen Welker of NBC News, who smartly suspended her Twitter account days ago. 
Don't expect too much from Welker.  As the New York Post notes, she has "deep Democrat ties."  Her selection, as well as Steve Scully's, shows just how biased the Commission on Presidential Debates is.
The final presidential debate historically focuses on foreign policy.  Instead, Welker is choosing to rehash the same issues from the first debate.  But why aren't we discussing foreign policy in this campaign? 
The left insisted that Trump would get us into war.  He hasn't.  In fact, he has worked hard to get us out of wars, and he has achieved historic peace deals
Donald Trump crushed the ISIS caliphate.  He confronted communist China.  He got our NATO allies to boost their defense spending.  And while he was unable to make a deal with Kim Jong Un, when was the last time you heard North Korea's dictator threaten our country?
Barrett Advances
This morning Judge Amy Coney Barrett took another step closer to becoming Justice Amy Coney Barrett.  Shortly after 9:00 AM, the Senate Judiciary Committee favorably reported her nomination to the Senate floor after a unanimous vote. 
I'm sure it may surprise some people to read that not one Judiciary Committee Democrat opposed Judge Barrett's nomination.  Well, that's because not one Democrat bothered to show up for the vote. 
As they have done for decades now, the left has ratcheted up the rhetoric and the theatrics against conservative judicial nominees.  Today, Democrats took the unprecedented step of boycotting the committee vote, hoping to prevent the vote entirely.
But Senate Republicans weren't having it.  Chairman Lindsey Graham ordered a roll call vote and it was 12-to-0, with 10 no votes.
The full Senate will take up Judge Barrett's nomination on Monday.  Call your senators now at 202-224-3121.  Urge them to support Judge Amy Coney Barrett's confirmation to the Supreme Court.
Biden Will Pack The Court
Joe Biden says that if he's elected, he's going to set up a commission to reform our "out of whack" court system.  But I guarantee that Biden's idea of "out of whack" isn't what you and I have in mind. 
Many conservatives voted for Donald Trump because they believed the left-wing courts were out of whack, and they wanted to see balance restored to our courts. 
Biden thinks the courts are too conservative, and he's looking for ways to undo everything we have accomplished in the last four years. 
Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi will pack the Supreme Court!
Good News
New jobless claims fell last week by 55,000 to 787,000.  Economists had been expecting 875,000 new claims.  While still high, that's the lowest level since mid-March, and a far cry from the peak of 6.9 million unemployment claims filed at the peak of the pandemic.
It's a clear sign that the economy is on the road to recovery.
That said, President Trump and congressional Republicans are trying to pass additional stimulus measures.  Unfortunately, Senate Democrats once again blocked a stimulus bill that would have provided additional unemployment funds and support to struggling small businesses.
