Now I'm really on the fence about voting for Hunter Biden.
 
2022-12-05 8:10:44 AM  
Remember when Republicans were trying to make nude pics on the internet illegal?

It was only like a year or two ago right?

In 2016, Hulk Hogan won $115 million in a suit against Gawker for them showing his porn video.  You'd have to be an idiot to keep them up after that.

I'm not saying it'd be right, or even that I want it to happen - but if nudie pics of Ivanka leaked, how do we think Republicans might react?

Naked pics of Jared, well...

Hunter Biden had a drug problem, Hunter Biden liked hookers, Hunter Biden got jobs in Ukraine and China most likely with the only qualifications being who his dad is. Us liberals acknowledge this and unless you have proof that this is tied to daddy Joe fark off.

So, for the millionth time, the Republicans are wrong while being wrong.

What about FOX News not broadcasting the January 6th hearings? Hell, what is the difference between what Twitter did with the Hunter Biden laptop story and the right wing media suppressing their reporting of the January 6th hearings? Since the political right made "whataboutisms" legitimate political discourse, what about the right wing suppression of the January 6th trials?

Why is it OK for the political right to suppress politically damaging stories but not the left? With the left it was only Twitter, with the right it is an entire media industry in cahoots.

The right is always complaining about a "double standard" for the left, yet this reeks of them wanting a double standard for themselves in total hypocrisy; an immunity for their politicians scheming with right wing media, while lynching the left for doing the same thing.
 
2022-12-05 8:15:17 AM  
I thought the people posting those pics to embarass the Bidens more or less gave up because it turned out the young man had quite the dangler so it wasn't really having the desired effect.
 
2022-12-05 8:15:59 AM  
I'm so tired of this liberal impulse to be like, "Well actually here's a well full rundown of why this is blah blah blah."

The situation doesn't call for that.  Just ignore it and send Trump and Desantis to jail for their numerous public felonies.
 
2022-12-05 8:16:05 AM  
To these people "FREE SPEECH" is basically "ANARCHY!!!!!"

It's cover for their "Libertarian" Nazi values, which is destruction of all the things they do not like. Basically, it;s giving this kid the nuclear codes:

Everyone keeps leaving out the part where in all of this "twitter files" nonsense, there's also records of Trump's people asking twitter to remove shiat they didn't like.

Most Republican males are closet gay. They were jerking off to them. Biden spoiled there fun.

WTF I happened to Matt Taibbi?  10 years ago, maybe 15 now, he was a good reporter.  He's become a right wing troll.
 
2022-12-05 8:22:12 AM  
So the white house asked Twitter not to show revenge porn from right wing nut jobs, and Peon Musky is trying to spin it as the Whitehouse shutting down free speech. Wow, what a meely mouthed little limp dick loser.
 
2022-12-05 8:22:30 AM  
So, the last batch of Republicans spent $50 million under Ken Starr to bring us evidence of Bill's BJ.

This batch has...so far...spent $44 billion to bring us Hunter's dick pic.

At this rate, the next Trump administration is going to spend our entire GDP on an NFT of Hillary's butt...

Not even. The Biden campaign asked, not the White House.

Looks guys, it's simple: I should be able to make up whatever flimsy October Surprise smear about my political opponent I want, get the New York Post to write about it the week before the election, and then use a bot army on Twitter to explain how this story proves that my opponent is really an illuminatti cannibal pedo, and if Twitter doesn't let this swing the election they are censorious anti-freedom despots.

became a lawyer (Yale Law, not that it matters)
worked his way up from consultant to VP at MBNA (which is probably where any nepotism/favoritism happened. Wait, rich people are all in a club together? You don't farking say!)
Commerce policy analyst (e-commerce) for Bill Clinton
W appointed him to Amtrak's board
financial consultant for businesses doing corporate compliance
hedge fund CEO
Burisma Holdings, helping them comply with corporate best practices - but what experience did he have doing it?!?!?!?!?

It's all on wikipedia, boss - and while I suppose it's possible he was a no-show at all those jobs and no one cared that he was a functional incompetent, that seems a bigger lift than assuming that a well-connected son of a politician got access to some gigs and he did them well enough to earn his place at a few others.

Everyone and their mother knows it was a snowjob with Hogan. All you have to do is shop around for your GQP judge, and you'll counter your lawsuit and walk away like a big shot, having already pooped everywhere on Faux Newz until the 2024 election.

They're all self loathing sexual abusers.

Their particular genders and specific crimes of abuse are just details.

The White House also requested material to be deleted from Twitter at that time on then-President Leather-Faced Piss Jar's behalf, requests which Twitter fulfilled. Mind you, unlike Biden's campaign, the White House is very much a part of the government and is subject to the 1st Amendment.

heavymetal: total hypocrisy


It's kind of their brand.

Hunter getting a job because his dad was VP pales in comparison to the massive profits Trump, SnowBoy, I'm Eric, Daddy's Girl, and her 666 husband got through under the table dealing with foreign governments. I don't see anybody calling for investigations into that.

That's the part they don't get. Actual Free Speech means you really can say anything without government reprisal... but the rest of us get to stone you to death financially and socially.

Can we get rid of this farce of a commissioning process? Reince Priebus, Pete, Hunter, etc. Direct commission to anything but JAG or medical needs to go away.

Doubtful... it's there in case of an actual war that requires full mobilization so the elite can protect their bloodline.

They ain't never giving that one up.

Legal question, can an interested 3rd party the "Biden Campaign" make the request or would it have had to been the party or parties in the videos/photos?

can you claim its all fake and still request something taken down?

Lastly if he had posted anything on his own does he have any type of copyright claims?  I think part of it was he had elected to post some stuff to some 3rd party sites?
 
2022-12-05 8:59:51 AM  
Elon overpromised and underdelivered again.  The best part is that he hooked Matt Taibbi - the smartest guy in the room.  Now Matt is desperately promising new incredible bombshells for the last several days and providing nothing.  He got sucked in by Elon.  Ha ha.

This will keep happening over and over.  Elon will make incredible promises to Republicans and True Progressives Who Happen to Hate Democrats like Taibbi and Greenwald and then Elon will continue to underdeliver.

Realize you're dealing with Republican logic.

Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump both making bank through being made members of the federal government because Fatass decided to make them part of his administration? With proof being seen by everyone every single day of probable criminal acts? Totally on the level.

Hunter Biden supposedly banking on and using his father's influence to help with business deals (with no actual, concrete proof he ever did?) The worst criminal act perpetrated on the American public and in need of endless investigations and impeachment trials against Joe Biden.
