House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff on Friday described revelations from a slew of emails in a laptop allegedly belonging to Hunter Biden as being part of a smear coming “from the Kremlin” -- amid claims the revelations are part of a Russian disinformation campaign.

“We know that this whole smear on Joe Biden comes from the Kremlin," Schiff said on CNN. "That's been clear for well over a year now that they've been pushing this false narrative about this vice president and his son.”

John F. Kennedy was a Democrat, and Donald Trump was affiliated with the Democrats from 2001-2009. Both of them opposed conspiracy/corruption, so you would expect that there would be some pushback if what  they opposed was real.

Craig Murray - "No matter how much you might dislike Trump, only a fool can fail to see the implications for public access to information of the massive suppression on the internet of the Hunter Biden leaks." 

 

No matter how much you dislike Trump, only a fool can fail to see the implications for public access to information of the massive suppression on the internet of the Hunter Biden leaks.

This blog has been suffering a ratcheting of social media suppression for years, which reached its apogee in my coverage of the Julian Assange trial. As I reported on 24 September:

Even my blog has never been so systematically subject to shadowbanning from Twitter and Facebook as now. Normally about 50% of my blog readers arrive from Twitter and 40% from Facebook. During the trial it has been 3% from Twitter and 9% from Facebook. That is a fall from 90% to 12%. In the February hearings Facebook and Twitter were between them sending me over 200,000 readers a day. Now they are between them sending me 3,000 readers a day. To be plain that is very much less than my normal daily traffic from them just in ordinary times. It is the insidious nature of this censorship that is especially sinister – people believe they have successfully shared my articles on Twitter and Facebook, while those corporations hide from them that in fact it went into nobody’s timeline. My own family have not been getting their notifications of my posts on either platform.

It was not just me: everyone reporting the Assange trial on social media suffered the same effect. Wikileaks, which has 5.6 million Twitter followers, were obtaining about the same number of Twitter “impressions” of their tweets (ie number who saw them) as I was. I spoke with several of the major US independent news sites and they all reported the same.

 

I have written before about the great danger to internet freedom from the fact that a few massively dominant social media corporations – Facebook, Twitter, Instagram – have become in effect the “gatekeepers” to internet traffic. In the Assange hearing and Hunter Biden cases we see perhaps the first overt use of that coordinated power to control public information worldwide.

 

The way the power of the “gatekeepers” is used normally is insidious. It is quite deliberately disguised. “Shadow banning” is a term for a technique which has many variations. The net result is always that the post is not ostensibly banned. Some people see it, so that if the subject of the suppression claims to be banned they look stupid. But it is in fact shown to far, far less people than it would normally be. So even members of my own immediate family find that my posts no longer turn up in their timeline on either Facebook or Twitter. But a few followers, presumably at random, do see them. Generally, though not always, those followers are apparently able to retweet or share, but what they are not told is that their retweet or share is in fact put in to very, very few people’s timelines. The overall audience for the Tweet or Facebook post is cut to as little as 1% of what it might be without suppression. As 90% of the traffic to this blog comes in clicks from these social media posts, the effect is massive.

 

That was the technique used on the Assange hearing. In normal times, the ratchet on traffic can be screwed down or released a little, from week to week or post to post.

 

In the Hunter Biden case, social media went still further and without disguise simply banned all mention of the Hunter Biden leaks.

As I reported on September 27 last year:

What I find deeply reprehensible in all the BBC coverage is their failure to report the facts of the case, and their utter lack of curiosity about why Joe Biden’s son Hunter was paid $60,000 a month by Burisma, Ukraine’s largest natural gas producer, as an entirely absent non-executive director, when he had no relevant experience in Ukraine or gas, and very little business experience, having just been dishonorably discharged from the Navy Reserve for use of crack cocaine? Is that question not just a little bit interesting? That may be the thin end of it – in 2014-15 Hunter Biden received US $850,000 from the intermediary company channeling the payments. In reporting on Trump being potentially impeached for asking about it, might you not expect some analysis – or at least mention – of what he was asking about?

That Hunter Biden received so much money from a company he never once visited or did any legitimate work for, located in a country which remarkably at the same time launched into a US sponsored civil war while his father was Vice President, is a question which might reasonably interest people. This is not “fake news”. There is no doubt whatsoever of the facts. There
is also no doubt that, as Vice President of the USA, Joe Biden secured the firing of the Ukrainian prosecutor who was investigating Burisma for corruption.
 

The story now is that Hunter Biden abandoned a laptop in a repair shop, and the hard drive contained emails between Hunter and Burisma in which he was asked for, and promised, various assistance to the company from the Vice President. This hard drive was passed to the New York Post. What the emails do not include is any incriminating correspondence between Hunter and his father in which Joe Biden agrees to any of this – which speaks to their authenticity, as that would be the key thing to forge. Given that the hard drive also contains intimate photos and video, there does not seem to be any real doubt about its authenticity.

However both Facebook and Twitter slapped an immediate and total ban on all mention of the Hunter Biden emails, claiming doubts as to its authenticity and an astonishing claim that they never link to leaked material or information about leaked material.

Screenshot-1323.png

Alert readers will note that this policy was not applied to Donald Trump’s tax returns. These were extremely widely publicised throughout social and mainstream media – and quite right too – despite being illegally leaked. Twitter may be attempting to draw a distinction between a “hack” and a “leak”. This is difficult to do – the Clinton and Podesta emails, for example, were leaked but are frequently claimed to have been hacked.

 

I am astonished by the online comment of people who consider themselves “liberals” who support the social media suppression of the Hunter Biden story, because they want Trump to be defeated. The truth is that those in control of social media censorship are overwhelmingly Atlanticist figures on the Clinton/Blair political spectrum. That embraces the roles of Nick Clegg and Ben Nimmo at Facebook. It explains the protective attitude of Blairite Wikipedia boss Jimmy Wales (also a director of Guardian Media Group) toward the Philip Cross operation.

 

Censorship from the self-satisfied centre of the political establishment is still more dangerous, because more stable, than censorship from the left or right. It seeks rigorously to enforce the “Overton window” on social media. It has a “whatever it takes” attitude to getting Joe Biden into the White House and removing a maverick element from the political stability it so prizes. Its hatred of public knowledge is behind the persecution of Assange.

 

The Establishment’s problem is that inequalities of wealth are now so extreme in Western society, that the attempted removal of access by the public to radical thinking is not protecting a stable society, but is protecting a society tilting towards structural instability, in which the lack of job security and decent conditions and pay for large swathes of the population contrasts vividly with the spectacularly flourishing fortunes of the ultra billionaires. Our society desperately needs thinking outside the box into which the social media gatekeepers are attempting to confine us.

 

An early part of that thinking out of the box needs to relate to internet architecture and finding a way that the social media gatekeepers can be bypassed – not by a few activists, but by the bulk of the population. We used to say the internet will always find a work-around, and there are optimists who believe that the kind of censorship we saw over Hunter Biden will lead to a flight to alternative platforms, but I don’t see that happening on the scale required. Regulation to prevent censorship is improbable – governments are much more interested in regulation to impose more censorship.

 

The development of social media gatekeeping of internet traffic is one of the key socio-political issues of our time. We need the original founders of the internet to get together with figures like Richard Stallman and – vitally – Julian Assange – to find a way we break free from this. Ten years ago I would not have thought it a danger that the internet would become a method of political control, not of political freedom. I now worry it is too late to avert the danger.

Facebook’s global policy manager for content regulation, Anna Makanju, advised Joe Biden on Ukraine policy during his time as Vice President. She also defended Biden from charges of wrongdoing with regards to Ukraine in a comment to the Washington Post last year.

 

...

 

Makanju is also a fellow at the Atlantic Council, which partnered with Facebook in 2018 to promote “election integrity” around the world.

 

https://www.thescotfree.com/usa/facebook-content-regulation-manager-anna-makanju-advised-joe-biden-on-ukraine/

 

 

What can you say about an organization that brings together George Soros, the Clintons, leading defense contractors, a powerful lobbying firm that employs ex-House speaker John Boehner and notoriously biased media outlets such as CNN and Reuters, all under the same umbrella?

The Atlantic Council‘s commitment to globalism is at the core of its mission statement. “Through the papers we write, the ideas we generate, and the communities we build, the Council shapes policy choices and strategies to create a more secure and prosperous world,” the group says of itself.

 

...

 

The Council is funded by and partners with Burisma, the Ukrainian energy company that paid Joe Biden’s son Hunter $83,000 a month to serve as a consultant, despite the younger Biden having no experience whatsoever in the energy industry. 

 

...

 

Soros’s Open Society Foundations is listed as one of the top donors to the Atlantic Council, coming in under the $250,000-$499,000 category in the Council’s “Honor Roll of Contributors” for the 2018 fiscal year.

In that same high-dollar category one finds the Victor Pinchuk Foundation. Pinchuk is a Ukrainian billionaire oligarch. He is listed as a member of the Atlantic Council’s “International Advisory Board.” According to the Council, the board is “a uniquely influential group of global business and policy leaders who provide perspectives to the Atlantic Council’s president and board. A further goal from its first annual meeting in 2007 has been to bring the group’s wisdom to Washington and to provide its members with access to leading US thinkers and policy makers.”

One leading U.S. political family that Pinchuk has gained “access to” is the Clintons. Pinchuk’s foundation is listed in the staggering $10-$25 million range of donors on the Clinton Foundation website.

Steve Bannon to Maria Bartiromo, Fox News:

 

“There’s much more stuff coming out on the access to Chinese Communist intelligence assets, intelligence operatives, who they’ve been in business with. There’s also other activity that’s coming out that’s total depravity that’s gonna come forward, that’s been checked out by independent law enforcement. It’s all gonna come out”  he told Maria.

“And you think it’s gonna come out in the next to weeks?” Maria asked.

“No I think it’s gonna come out in the next 24-48 hours is when I think it’s going to come out. It’s going to be all there so Joe Biden is going to have to defend it in front of a global TV audience on thursday night” Bannon replied.

Same thing happened in 2016 DNC leaks, The press only talked about how the leaks got out, Left out the the real information about the DNC corruption. Now the Democrats are talking about how the Biden information was released. Not the corruption revealed.

(Natural News) Senator James Lankford of Oklahoma has called on the FBI to carry out a counterintelligence briefing looking into the extent to which a Biden presidency would present a risk to national security.

Lankford, who is a member of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, shared his concerns with Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro. After expressing her reservations “given what we already know about the Biden family ties,” she asked Lankford if he was worried about a potential national security risk.

He replied that he believed there could be a serious counterintelligence risk from potential leverage against the Biden family by foreign entities.

An email from Burisma to Hunter Biden refutes Joe Biden's claim that he had prosecutor Shokin fired for corruption.


"The scope of work should also include organization of a visit of a number of widely recognized and influential current and/or former US policy-makers to Ukraine in November aiming to conduct meetings with and bring positive signal/message and support on Nikolay's issue to the Ukrainian top officials above with the ultimate purpose to close down for any cases/pursuits against Nikolay in Ukraine."

Nikolai Zlochevsky (aka Mykola Zlochevsky)  is the former Ukranian minister for natural resources who founded Burisma. After the investigation against Zlochevsky was dropped, Burisma and the Atlantic Council signed a cooperative agreement relating to energy security.

"don't mention Joe being involved it's only when u are face to face. I know you know that but they are paranoid"

 

May 20, 2017 text message from James Gillar to Tony Bobulinski.

 

Bobulinski, the recipient of one of the emails retrieved from Hunter Biden’s laptop, went public on Wednesday night with a statement saying he confirms its authenticity and detailed how former Vice President Joe Biden — the Democrat nominee for president in this year’s election, which is just over 10 days away — was personally involved in many dealings with his son’s business associates.

Hunter Biden is partnered with the Chinese state. Entire investment partnership is Chinese state money from social security fund to China Development Bank. It is actually a subsidiary of the Bank of China. This is not remotely anything less than a Chinese state funded play.

Though the entire size of the fund cannot be reconstructed, the Taiwanese cofounder who is now detained in China, reports it to be NOT $1-1.5 billion but $6.5 billion. This would make Hunters stake worth at a minimum at least $50 million if he was to sell it.

The BBC hid this story in the Tech section for more than a week, as if it was only a controversy about fact-checking on social media.

Twitter and Facebook's action over Joe Biden article reignites bias claims

https://www.bbc.com/news/technology-54552101

 

Quote

On Wednesday, Twitter prevented people from posting links to a New York Post story, warning those trying to click it that the link was "potentially unsafe".

 

It only later explained it had limited sharing because the story contained "hacked materials".

 

 

(Article includes analysis by Marianna Spring, the BBC's 'disinformation and social media reporter')

Quote

 

This is the latest escalation in two battles. The first is social media's fight against misinformation - especially ahead of the US election.

 

Pressure has been growing on Twitter and Facebook to tackle political disinformation and interference - but this raises big questions about how much they should or should not do.

 

 

16th October

Twitter changes policy after Biden article block

https://www.bbc.com/news/technology-54568785

 

Quote

 

The article contained screenshots of emails allegedly sent and received by Hunter Biden, presidential candidate Joe Biden's son.

 

It also contained personal photos of Hunter Biden, allegedly removed from a laptop computer while it was undergoing repairs at a store.

 

 

22nd October

Facebook and Twitter chiefs ordered to testify over Biden article

https://www.bbc.com/news/technology-54649262

 

Quote

 

The article revealed emails and photographs that the New York Post claimed were copied from the laptop of Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden.

 

No criminal activity has been proven, and no evidence has emerged that Mr Biden did anything to intentionally benefit his son.

 

 

 

Since the presidential debate they've promoted it to the US and Canana section but they still don't think it qualifies as evidence, even though they admit the Biden election campaign hasn't denied the emails are real.

Hunter Biden: What was he doing in Ukraine and China?

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-54553132

 

Quote

 

No criminal activity has been proven, and no evidence has emerged that Mr Biden did anything to intentionally benefit his son.

 

The campaign also decried the New York Post story as "Russian disinformation", though it did not say the emails were bogus.

 

The issue has resurfaced following a New York Post article about an alleged email in which an adviser from a Ukrainian energy company, Burisma, apparently thanked Mr Biden's son, Hunter, for inviting him to meet his father.

 

Other US media say they have been unable to verify the authenticity of the emails.

Presidential debate: Trump and Biden row over Covid, climate and racism

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-54654937

 

Quote

 

Mr Trump cited unsubstantiated claims Mr Biden personally profited from his son's business dealings. The Democrat brought up Mr Trump's opaque taxes.

 

Mr Trump brought up purported leaked emails from Mr Biden's son, Hunter, about his business dealings in China.

 

But Mr Biden denied the president's unfounded insinuation that the former US vice-president somehow had a stake in the ventures.

This video is allegedly of fetish sex between Hunter Biden and his niece Natalie, who is the daughter of Hunter's brother Beau, who died in 2015.

 

https://gtv.org/web/?videoid=5f94837c7de25667c0fe0c5e#/VideoPlay_UI

 

At 2:04 Hunter says "Look, Nattie"

At 2:30 she says "I didn't know my foot could do that"

 

For voice comparison, in this video Natalie talks about Joe Biden at 1:33. Hunter's video would be at least 15 months older.

We apologize if this photo has caused you any serious discomfort! But it is for the sake of justice that we, the New Federal State of China, have made this picture public. Because the friends of the communist are our enemies.

 

This picture shows only the tip of the iceberg of what is important in the Chinese Communist Party's Blue-Gold-Yellow (BGY) program.

 

They take advantage of all those Western politicians, celebrities, and their families who are greedy for Chinese wealth, and threaten them by getting hold of and recording their sex and drug videos, forcing them to sell out their countries and people, and even their own national security in order to cooperate with the Chinese Communist Party's world domination.

 

The Chinese Communist Part has such a BGY program in the United States and in several Western countries in Europe. We will have millions of videos and photos of government officials, corrupt people, traitors, and criminals colluding with the Communist Party to dominate the world.

 

The next picture will be released in an hour, please stay tuned!

 

 

Looking forward to the Hancock video.

Rudy Giuliani explains how the Biden family's racketeering works. Joe would be sent on a mission overseas to negotiate on behalf of the US government. His son or his brother would go with him. The negotiations would fail. Soon after they got back, the other family member would receive millions of dollars from a shady company in the country they'd just visited. Joe would buy another mansion. Giuliani says it's well known that Biden had a 100% failure rate in foreign policy.

 

The three videos go over more or less the same stuff. The middle one is probably best for an overall view.
