Biden's Laptop: Tale of Corruption and Censorship

Print Friendly Version of this pagePrint Get a PDF version of this webpagePDF

I've seen this kind of thing in third world countries---it happens regularly. But in America?

When our Founding Fathers crossed the Atlantic, they did so in the name of freedom and liberty.

When Alexander Hamilton founded the New York Post, he did so in the name of a free press.

When our Founders created our Constitution, they did so in the name of freedom of expression--freedom of speech.

Now Zuckerberg and Dorsey have changed all that. They believe free speech should be allowed selectively---and sadly, they have the power to do it with their Twitter and Facebook.

Hamilton is rolling over in his grave, and free speech in America is about to be put in one.

Be informed, not misled.

Censorship, the handmaid of corruption.

As the public has become aware of some of Hunter Biden's shady dealing with foreign countries, father Joe has repeatedly said, "I have never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings."

When the New York Post broke the story of Hunter's laptop that contains thousands of emails that clearly involve his father, now presidential candidate Joe Biden simply denied it.

According to the emails, Hunter has been paid millions of dollars---$10 million of which was set aside for Hunter's "Big Guy"--- to both influence his father when he was vice president in Obama's administration, and provide direct contact---meetings--with his father.

According to the Post, based on the emails, Hunter introduced his father to a Burisma Energy executive less than a year before the then vice president pressured the Ukraine government into firing a prosecutor who was investigating the company.

Millions of dollars followed. 

The Post story reveals, from emails, that this kind of dealing has happened in China, Russia and elsewhere---and millions of dollars have followed---including $3.5 million from the wife of the former Mayor of Moscow.

So, the "I have never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings" message has been shelved in search of a better way to handle the "story."

Joe Biden has been in hiding since Monday, supposedly "preparing" for tonight's presidential debate, while refusing to make any statement to the press about the matter. 

Us common people who live in the real world know exactly what he's doing.

So do Twitter and Facebook. And they're assisting him by censoring the laptop story.

Selective censorship

Facebook spokesman and former Democrat staffer Andy Stone tweeted Facebook's decision to "reduce" distribution of the Post story before their "fact-checkers" had even looked at the story.

Twitter immediately followed. The Twitter spokesman said they were outright banning the story on their platform.

Sohrab Ahmari, the New York Post op-eds editor, found his social media accounts had also been locked.

He is now claiming: "This is a Big Tech information coup. This is digital civil war."

And it is.

A quick look at who is "not" censored on social media is revealing.

As of yesterday afternoon, Twitter continues to lock down the New York Post account---and some of its journalists.

While the Post is gagged, Louis Farrakhan, Richard Spencer, Ali Khamenei, and Maduro have more "freedom of speech" than the New York Post.


Farrakhan is the leader and most prominent figure of the Nation of Islam, a black militant supremacist and nationalist group that formed in the 1930s. Since taking leadership in the late 1970s, Farrakhan has been accused of anti-Semitism and homophobia for his comments and sermons.

Richard Spencer

The Anti-Defamation League has called infamous White nationalist Richard Spencer a "symbol of the new white supremacy." He has publicly called for the removal of African-Americans, Hispanics, and Jewish people from the United States.

His public speeches often include attendees making Nazi salutes. He was also a scheduled speaker at the now-infamous event in Charlottesville, yet he often appears on CNN and tweets regularly.

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei

Ali Khamenei is Iran's supreme leader, and has emerged as one of the most powerful Iranian leaders in the last century and wields control over all aspects of the country's government, military, and media.

During the 1979 revolution in Iran, he preached about overthrowing the shah, resisting the United States, and imposing Islamic values in his government and the world.

Recently he has grown increasingly angered and disdainful at the US, which he described as "deceitful, untrustworthy and backstabbing"

Twitter is good with that.

Venezuela's Maduro

An explosive UN Human Rights Council--commissioned report issued last month detailed the extensive and systematic human rights abuses orchestrated by Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro's inner circle, which amount to crimes against humanity. The findings revealed that his government and security forces have engaged in a number of brutal torture tactics including electric shocks, genital mutilation, and asphyxiation to kill and maim dissidents.

He uses Twitter regularly. No problem.

Dan Gainor, with Media Research Center, says: 

"It's pretty obvious that Twitter is trying to influence the election. And the press is more than OK with it. Some of the worst people in the world are active on Twitter."

He said: 

"But a US news organization is blocked because Jack Dorsey supports Joe Biden. Imagine the media outcry if Twitter had blocked the phony New York Times 1619 Project. Every journalist in America would be demanding they back down. But since this story makes Biden look bad, the news media are thrilled that Twitter and Facebook shut it down."

It's been a week since the Post was blocked. As of last night, they remain blocked.

Some of our conservative senators have spoken out forcefully about this episode of corruption and censorship, promising to force Dorsey and Zuckerberg to explain under oath what exactly is going on.

Before the glimmer of hope could rise, the Senate announced yesterday that bringing in two of the most prominent influencers in America has been postponed.

However, we learned yesterday afternoon Twitter is now altering how retweets work on its platform ahead of the election. They have made the alteration---or "friction," as they call it, to slow down retweets---even discourage them around the election to "prevent the spread of misinformation."

It's another blatant attempt to slow down the virality of tweets they don't like, such as those of Donald Trump---or the spread of the New York Post laptop story.

When do you think our elected officials will find time to address this issue of censorship and corruption?

Probably not until after the election.

Be Informed. Be Discerning. Be Vigilant. Be Prayerful. VOTE.
