"And no better person to help us unpack this than Miranda divine, Miranda, let me kind of tell you my theory that we have here and we've been kind of saying this for a couple of months. Basically, I think this is first and foremost an attempt to try to have the FBI look cleaner ahead of the midterms. Secondly, they want to look more neutral coming into an oversight blitz that will likely happen if Republicans flip the House and the Senate or and or the Senate. Also, I think it's going to put Joe Biden in a political penalty box coming into 2024 is that they can have a Gavin Newsom or someone much more likeable, but kind of most importantly, I think that it is a way to try to set the table to indict Donald Trump. I think the evidence against Hunter Biden is so overwhelming. They're going to use this as a first step to then go after Trump. Miranda, what are your thoughts? There's a lot to unpack there. Obviously, this the leaks to The Washington Post just like the leaks earlier to CNN are part of a strategy again. Being played to shape the narrative ahead of any charges are already plea deal coming up. Now, we've known for many months at what was coming out of Delaware. It is always going to be a slap on the wrist. And the most obvious part of that is the fact that they never called Toni bolinsky, who would be your key witness, if you really wanted to get to the bottom of the Biden family influence peddling scheme when it came to China, particularly, which is probably the most important in terms of our national security, definitely. So, and you know, Charlie bubbling ski was never subpoenaed, never called before that grand jury in Delaware. So instantly that tells you that they were not interested, they were deliberately refusing to follow any lines of inquiry that would lead to The White House to Joe Biden, which effectively means the whole influence peddling scheme is off the table. And you see that from the Lake to The Washington Post. It's just about tax evasion. It's just about a gun charge albeit a felony gun charge, pretty serious. People have gone to jail for lying on that background check for. But really, the tax charges, the question you have to ask you, if hunter has paid back as we're told $2.8 million worth of taxes unpaid taxes to the IRS. Where did that money come from? We know where that money came from. That money came from China, came from Ukraine, came from Romania, came from Kazakhstan. It came from the influence fiddling operation that the bidens were running around the world while Joe Biden was vice president that Joe Biden says he knows nothing about. And the reason that this is coming out, I'm calling it a limited hangout, you know, a legal limited hangout. The reason that these just trivial charges really are being aid at this time is to create a narrative that I know the Hunter Biden can do I talk to yesterday is putting forward, which is that, look, hanja Biden has nothing to hide..
Miranda Devine and Charlie Discuss Hunter's Potential Indictment

The FBI Going After Hunter Biden Is NOT Good News for Donald Trump
"There is a fourth reason with the announcement yesterday. And it is not a good reason. There is a fourth reason why the FBI did this, and it is their main goal. But it takes an analysis where you see one step leading to the other and you have to look a step deeper. You have to look at what's actually happening, not just the misdirection, the mirage, the play action pass that they're throwing on cable television, which is very obvious. This is trying to lay the foundation and we predicted this over the summer too. This is trying to set the groundwork, the prerequisite to indict Donald Trump. This is not good news for Donald Trump yesterday. Now, is it going to be a nonsensical indictment, of course it is fabricated out of thin air? Is it garbage? Should it make you angry? Oh yes, but let's be honest. Yesterday is about trying to show the FBI says that no one is above the law. You see, we go after a president's son and we go after a former president. The difference obviously is Trump is innocent and he's undone anything wrong at all completely at all whatsoever on Hunter Biden is a traitor and a criminal. I mean, you know, the old expression is show me the man. I'll show you the crime. The expression for Hunter Biden has shown me the crime and I'll show you hunter. Pick a crime any crime. Drugs, sex, pain for sex. Illegal foreign lobbying, lying to federal officials, illegally doing business dealings. I mean, you show me any one of those crimes. You could pick from the buffet line. Of the American legal code. And all roads lead to hunter.
The Left Wants to Get Rid of Biden and Clean Up the FBI's Image
"You have to understand that Hunter Biden would not even be seriously or meaningfully investigated if it was not if Joe Biden's approval ratings were above 55 or 60 percent. Joe Biden is becoming a very serious anchor and impediment to the regime's takeover of America. Joe Biden being so deeply unpopular, there are people clamoring within the government, remember the true sovereign in our country that kind of middle band that are saying, we got to get rid of this guy. Joe Biden is no longer helpful to our aims and our ambitions. Number one, what is this? This is an attempt to try to make the FBI look cleaner ahead of the midterms. They leaked this. They didn't indict for a reason. And I believe the indictment will come after the midterms in November and December. This is not an indictment. This is a leak. They leaked it intentionally to try to clean up the appearance of the FBI to try and stop the conservative line of attack politically against the FBI right now in a consequential October. So this is an indictment without an indictment leaking to The Washington Post saying an indictment is likely, but the indictment will not happen before the midterms. I almost guarantee you that. They don't want to have election interference, but so what's the middle ground they want all of a sudden for people to have a restored confidence in the FBI. They want to have people that have kind of a restored ideal that the FBI is going to do the right thing.
Why the FBI Indicting Hunter Biden Is NOT What It Seems
"You probably saw the news yesterday. Reports from The Washington Post shows that the Department of Justice says they have enough evidence to indict Hunter Biden on tax and gun charges. I had multiple people text me this story. In fact, I had some people message me at very high levels in media, including some officeholders saying, finally, justice, and I text the back and I said, how could you be so naive? That is not what is happening here. Justice, you think the FBI all of a sudden is waking up to be an institution of fidelity bravery and integrity with the FBI is supposed to stand for? You think all of a sudden the FBI and the Department of Justice says, oh yeah, you know, we got to get ourselves in line here. No, no, no, it's very clear what's happening. And we have been ahead of the curve on this program, predicting to a T with the timeline of what exactly is happening with Hunter Biden. Exactly what is happening with Joe Biden. I'm going to walk you through all of this because this is not about Hunter Biden. And for every conservative out there, that is celebrating this news, be very careful. This is not great news. It's predictable news, but we're going to walk through very concrete steps of the misdirection that is happening with this alleged announcement. But first, let's just make sure we know what we're talking about here. Lower Ingram cut one 25 on how the FBI may be bringing tax and gun charges against Hunter Biden, one 25. Federal agents now believe they have enough evidence to charge Hunter Biden with tax crimes and for making a false statement regarding a gun purchase. Source is telling Fox News that decision is now in the hands of the U.S. attorney in Delaware. It's a Trump holdover named David Weiss. So if I've had several conservatives and people emailing us freedom at Charlie Kirk dot com saying, yes, this is a great day. Hunter Biden is finally going to receive justice. That Hunter Biden is finally going to be held accountable. Don't fall for this.
How Facebook Spies on Users and Funnels Their Info to the FBI
"I've been talking about the sins of the social media platforms and I want to zoom into Facebook very interesting article by an outstanding journalist Miranda Devine of the New York Post. She has sources at the Department of Justice, the Biden Department of Justice, and these sources have told her that Facebook has been spying on the private messages and data of American users, AKA conservatives, and reporting them to the FBI if they express anti government or anti authority sentiments, including questioning the 2020 election. So think about this. There's no question that if the FBI serves a subpoena on Facebook, Facebook needs to comply with the subpoena, but that's not what Miranda Devine is saying. What Miranda Devine is saying is that Facebook has established a relationship with the FBI in which unsolicited. Or at least not specifically solicited. The FBI isn't saying show me this particular person's content or data. Facebook is essentially turned itself into an instrument of government spying. And is feeding or shoveling information from its own platform. So think of how terrible this is for any company to do. They're taking their own customers in a relationship that you would think would be based on trust. You know, you shop somewhere. Imagine if you went to shop somewhere and you realize that that vendor is taking your data such as it is. For whatever purpose and sending it over to the IRS or sending it over to the FBI. Because that way they can see if this guy really afford to buy a Rolex, so how much did he pay in taxes last year? This would be outrageous, and that's yet this exact outrageous conduct is what these platforms are doing.
Julie Kelly: The FBI Is Surveilling Social Media Chatter
"Pretty touch and call his name We said it was Mike and I was real name is obviously He's like listen I'm a retired FBI guy and he says Dan I got kids too and my son called me the other day and he said dad you know what the hell is going on at the FBI And he said Dan I got to tell you you know I can't speak for everyone but I speak for a good amount of retired agents I still keep in communication with And he said we're just horrified You're right What's happening right now is a disgrace I mean think about it This story breaks last night from another great reporter Miranda Devine at the New York Post that a whistleblower's revealing that Facebook was now in cahoots with the FBI giving them wait for it your private messages on Facebook Not Julie Kelly's public pose You're a private DM type stuff So if you're using Facebook to coordinate groups and you're exchanging messages without a subpoena according to the whistleblower allegations nonetheless but serious enough to address They were giving to somebody the FBI that this is as clear as day of violation of the First Amendment It really is and look this goes this started really before the 2020 election The FBI opened something called operation cold snap and the spring of 2020 And this was to surveil social media chatter among Americans who protested or were planning to protest These lockdowns This stand is how the FBI and social media and Facebook put together the Whitmer fed mappers The men who were lured by the FBI and their informants into this group that allegedly tried to kidnap and killed Of course there was an FBI operation This is all an extension from that into the 2020 election And of course leading all the way through to January 6th Miranda's piece is an absolute must read because this thick partnership between big tech and the country's most powerful law enforcement agency should really scare the hell out of everyone

Miranda Devine: Facebook Was First to Censor Hunter Biden Laptop Story
"Thing Miranda Devine who wrote the book laptop from hell and disclosure I published that book and it's a great book about the Hunter Biden laptop Miranda Devine tweeted out instantly mocking Zuckerberg about his claims like oh we weren't as bad as Twitter because Twitter straight up banned the New York Post and others and we just reduced the distribution She says this is such BS quote Facebook was the first to censor Hunter Biden's laptop story The morning it was published on October 14th 2020 Andy stone Facebook's communications manager issued a statement via Twitter at 1110 a.m. Stone used to work at a damn super PAC and John Kerry for president's campaign Now again it's not that the Democrats lie in BS people We get all that That's not breaking news I'm not going to waste your time stating the obvious What should bother you is the brazenness of this right here and that nothing has happened to these people at all Facebook is still swimming in hundreds of billions of dollars in assets the left doesn't care at all because they love totalitarianism and censorship And Miranda the vine is acknowledging right here that the guy who's communicating is the public face to Facebook as a ban a story that would dramatically impact the Democrat nominee for president right before the election in October The guy who's doing it used to work for John Kerry for president them super PAC and they're not even ashamed No one said to him Andy Maybe it's not a good idea that you do this given your party affiliation maybe we let someone else
FBI in for a Rude Wake-Up Call Over Hunter Biden Investigation
"Joining us right now is a friend of the program someone who is super smart and does phenomenal research and investigations, Miranda Devine from the New York Post also author of the laptop from hell, Miranda, welcome back to the Charlie Kirk show. Thanks Charlie grot to be with you. Thank you. So I want to talk to you about this story here. FBI, director ray, are in for a rude wake-up call over the Hunter Biden investigation to your latest piece up at the New York Post NY post dot com. What do you mean by that? Well, on Thursday, Christopher wray, the FBI director appears in Congress before they oversight committee and the Republicans there are planning to really grill him on a few very sinister and concerning issues that have come to the fore in the last week. And you probably know already about chuck gresley has had several FBI whistleblowers come to him and give him information that basically the FBI just sat on buried the Hunter Biden information that came out in 2020 in August 2020 when graz Lee and Ron Johnson were both investigating the Hunter Biden and burisma corruption connections. And then again in October 2020, which was, of course, the month that we at the New York Post broke the first story from Hunter Biden's abandoned laptop and October was also the time the month that tiny bubble linsky, the navy veteran and former business partner of Hunter Biden came forward publicly to say that Joe Biden was involved in his family's influence peddling scheme that Joe Biden was the big guy who was slated to get 10% of one of the Chinese deals and that Tony bubba linsky himself had met twice with Joe Biden to discuss these deals. So
"miranda devine" Discussed on America First with Sebastian Gorka Podcast
"Associates in America. So I think that information that we're getting very close to something that somebody in power didn't want them to have. And therefore we had the FBI basically stage a phony FBI sort of defensive briefing for them. Now, whether the FBI these agents were tricked by the Democrats by Pelosi Schumer, chef and co, who were at that stage screaming Russian disinformation and trying to disrupt the work that shot Johnson and Gregory were doing. Either way, they were given an defense briefing and one Johnson knew immediately that that briefing started and his staff knew that this was bogus that the person that they were defensively briefing in wasn't even a part of their investigation. And they said to the FBI guys, if this leaks, we will know that something dirty is up. And sure enough, next day, seeing that it's in the papers. So that was an attempt to dirty up their inquiry into Hunter Biden. And that was with the assistance of the FBI. And then we find out that they didn't even just do that, but they're also bearing information about the laptop presumably information from tiny bubble and because he went to the FBI, had hours of being interviewed in October of 2020 and handed over all his documents, all the contents of his devices and a lot of that material just overlaps and corroborates and duplicates a lot that from the laptop that's incriminating particularly about China. So why they didn't do anything about those two bombshell pieces of information. Is a really open question and very cool. It's not a complicated question, but it does remain open. And after the break, we're going to dig into the reasons that they were hiding the Biden family corruption, which I think are a little obvious. But also what lengths they went to to hide the story so that the corruption wouldn't sink Biden's campaign. We're talking with Miranda Devine. This is Jim Hansen. We're doing America first radio back after the break. Here's looking at you snowflake, America first. America first, for sure, with some good cultural appropriation Rage Against the Machine bumper music, gotta love that. We're back talking to Miranda Devine, author of laptop from hell, which is now going to become a bigger and bigger problem for Joe Biden and for the left overall because not just the problem they have with the Biden family business of selling out America so that hunter can buy crack and hookers. But the problem they have now, Miranda, I think, is this is indicative of what the left has as a mode of operand mode of operation to go ahead and influence a U.S. election. Because that information was coming out, you were working on it, obviously you mentioned the chuck grassley and senator Johnson report. But all of that got stifled before the election. They tried to make sure that the American people wouldn't know just how bad Joe and hunter and his brother and the rest of them were. And I think that is going to backfire for them almost as much as the corruption because people understand corruption is a normal part of business. And okay, you know, you're riding your dad's coat tails. But when all of that got shut down in an influence the U.S. election, that's a different thing. Yes. And look, I mean, I don't think you can just say our corruption is nothing and people don't care about it. I think they care deeply, but they've just become so battered and bruised and cynical and resigned to the fact that it's endemic in Washington, but I don't think that means that any of us should give up. It's a big problem. But it's a really corrosive problem. And it's across the western world, but I think particularly about in Washington and it's on both sides. So I think that there's no point just sitting back and resigning yourself to it. You have to fight against it and remember how bad it is and how destructive it is to our national security apart from, you know, trust in institutions, et cetera. But yeah, the interference, the suppression of the story, the blackout by the media, the intervention by the intelligence services by also former intelligence operatives like John Brennan James clapper Leon Panetta. Who wrote that letter with, you know, there were 51 in total former intelligence officials, some of them very high ranking wrote that letter that Joe Biden used very successfully to get himself off the hook when our story came out pretending that it was Russian disinformation or as they said in their letter information, but they obviously they want us to read that as Russian disinformation. That was how the letter was portrayed in the media as they knew it would be. And their whole purpose for writing that letter was to get Joe Biden off the hook. The whole purpose of the FBI as chuck grassley's whistleblower is saying was to suppress this story that was damaging to the candidate who was running against Donald Trump. And it was because basically the establishment, the swamp whatever you call them, would determined that Donald Trump would not serve another term. So they didn't care. Joe Biden was going to win by hook or by cook. Yeah, and they abused their power. The ones who were in government, obviously, and now at least we're seeing examples of malfeasance and potential criminal activity by FBI agents to do that. And then if you look at the disinformation campaign that was run against the American public by the media by the tech tyrants who run the social media companies and by Democrat operatives in collaboration, we believe. And I think our project, our AI project is going to show some places where there was direct coordination, they were working together to influence the course of a U.S. election by conducting disinformation operations against the American people. And that's almost unprecedented. That large a conspiracy to do that is I'm unable to find another example of. And we hope to be able to help the grass leaves in the senator Johnson's and the other folks will be holding hearings with that. And I'm trying to enlist you in that cause as well. So hopefully all your knowledge can be brought to bear on that as well. Yeah, look, Jim, you're right. You can't overstate how important it was the suppression of this story. The interference really election interference there. And people have to be brought to account. We know from polls that were taken after the election that something like 17% of Biden voters in 7 swing states would have switched their votes would have not voted for Biden if they'd been if they'd known about the scandal, the laptop. And that would have been enough to swing the election. And now, now that the story, what 19 months later The New York Times and The Washington Post and so on, acknowledge that our story was correct and that the laptop is real and they will indicated a lot of the emails on it. Once they did that, they were obviously trying to get out in front of the Delaware grand jury, which at some point has to come to a conclusion. And either indict hunter or some sort of cozy pre deal with him. But in that now, we're talking about more Americans know that the Hunter Biden laptop story is these real is important. And Paul's are just showing how bad it is for Joe Biden that the story lingers on and it's inexplicable why The White House keeps on stonewalling. You know, we have our reporter Stephen Nelson, who's terrific. We have a couple of other reporters who are in The White House press call who are occasionally allowed to ask questions. And whenever they ask about these, they just get the same old story. Yes, Joe Biden stands by his comments that he knew nothing about his son hunters overseas business dealings. It is impossible to maintain that fiction and yet they still well, I think they're going to find that not just increasingly difficult but impossible because too much information is coming out and the whistleblowers are going to blow the lid off it. And I think come this fall and going forward. It's going to stop being a liability and it's going to be a death sentence for Joe Biden's presidency. Miranda Devine tremendous to actually put together the definitive tome on this laptop from hell and if you haven't read it, do because it's got everything you need to know and hopefully Miranda will be hearing more and new things out of the whistleblower hearings and the rest of.
Jim Hanson and Miranda Devine Discuss the Biden Crime Family
"Told you guys before I'm working on an AI project to find out who was behind the censorship and disinformation of the Hunter Biden laptop story. And guess what? We have now on the show, the woman who wrote the definitive tale of this laptop from hell, Miranda Devine. Good to be with you. Hey, great to be with you, too, Jim. I love your project. It's none of your project. Very important. Well, it's one of the most horrendous things I think has been done as far as interfering in an election in this country, and I want to expose it. And I think everyone needs it exposed. But you did a lot of the hard work in digging into the story as a whole, and it seems to be, you know, there's a lot there and I think there was always evidence of Biden family corruption. Given that we've now got some whistleblowers talking about what's going on in the FBI, do you think there will be any adverse action for anybody named Biden? Well, look, I think that's all up in the air. Certainly, you know, if there's polls show the Republicans take back at least the house, if not the Senate. I think next year they are all systems go, they are locked and loaded. They're doing a lot of work now to live for the work to get on top of all the issues and the whistleblowers are starting to knock on their doors. That's what's really the latest kind of turn in this story because we have had a lot of twists and turns and we first started working on it back in late 2020 just before the election. And so I think that's good news. And I think it really will depend on patriots, particularly within the intelligence community and particularly the FBI
Pelosi Trip to Taiwan Tests China’s Appetite for Confrontation
"By far the most powerful country in the world in military terms. Without any doubt. But with a home court advantage off China's coast, China has put massive resources into anti fit missiles interceptors and submarines precisely in order to be able to kill an American fleet in proximity to their coast. Their land army is terrible, peel of people's liberation armies, maybe the worst land army in the world. But their missile corps is excellent. And the studies from the air force and the Rand corporation and the office of net assessment, which I used to do some work for a Pentagon. Say that those missiles are extremely good. Now, you can argue about whether you contract moving the ship 800 miles off the coast if it's maneuvering. Can you really hit it well? The Ukrainians managed to sink the Russian flagship, the Moscow, hundred kilometers off their coast and at the Ukrainians can do it the Chinese who, after all, did put a space landing craft on The Dark Side of the Moon, probably could be able to do it. So the risk of a kinetic engagement against Chinese missiles and the possible loss of a carrier with 8000 American sailors and all of our prestige, as you say, is not a risk that we want to take. The
Pelosi Poised to Visit Taiwan As China Threatens Military Action
"Have a strong belief that we should do everything we can to convince the Chinese that they shouldn't do anything aggressive towards Taiwan and that our policy can include aggressive deterrence. I don't think they've managed to pull that off with the inability of The White House to articulate this position. But what if all right, now it appears she's going. It sounds like that she'll be there Tuesday night and the Chinese have literally threatened that if we fly military aircraft into there, they're going to do something about it. Are they blowing smoke or could this actually blow up? Well, I don't think they're going to shoot down in American military aircraft. But when Xi Jinping tells President Biden as he did, if you play with fire, you will get burned. That is language stronger than the Chinese have used at any time since we established diplomatic relations. Not since the Korean War have they said things like that. Remember, Xi Jinping is facing a tough contest for his third term as premier. He's got the 20th Congress of the Communist Party coming up in November. And after he's put his credibility on the line, there's no way he can back down and do nothing. So what I would expect is not a kinetic action on China's part. I think more likely would be a blockade, and they dare the United States to try to break the blockade. That's up to easy when Taiwan's 90 miles of the Chinese coast and they have the home court advantage. As the Chinese keep saying, they've got what about 1400 surface to ship missiles, and most experts certainly the Rand people, the air force, believe that the Chinese could sink pretty much any American ship within. 500 miles or more of their coast.
Jim Hanson and David Goldman Discuss Nancy Pelosi's Taiwan Trip
"Again bringing our way toward World War three and I'm not sure why. So because of that, I wanted to bring on someone who may be able to shed some light on this. David Goldman is the Spengler columnist for Asia times and PJ media and the president of macro strategy LLC. And an all around expert on the Pacific Rim and related locales. Now I was a first group guy, so this is my area of operations as well. And I'm obviously I am a 100% believer that we can not allow Taiwan to be pushed around and we can't allow the Chinese to tell us where Americans can and can not go. But I am at a loss to figure out why right now Nancy Pelosi seemed to have a unilateral need to conduct foreign policy into Taiwan. Do you have any idea what she's actually up to? Well, the charitable view is that Pelosi wants to show the flag and tell voters that the Democrats really aren't soft in Taiwan. And a child, which, of course, the Republicans will attack the Biden administration for. The less charitable view is she's doing freelance diplomacy with the idea that we're going to show the flag and intimidate the Chinese and tell them that we're going to stand by Taiwan in a situation where we are not prepared militarily to defend it. Provocation from weakness is the opposite of peace through strength, which is what I believe in. And what she's doing, I think, is exceptionally dangerous and stupid. Of the body of the menstruation owns that completely because he's going to be flying in an American military aircraft.
Miranda Devine: Media Didn't Talk of Hunter to Get Rid of Trump First
"Of Hunter Biden's former business partners referred to Joe Biden as the big guy in a panic message the same day the New York Post broke news of the laptop from hell left behind by the president's son. I got to just start on a personal note with you. Are you mad? Are you angry that outside of the New York Post, the mainstream media is avoiding Joe Biden's relationship with his son hunter and hunter's business dealings like the Bubonic plague? Does that infuriate you? I'm not sure anger is the right emotion, but it certainly baffles me and worries me because I guess it just shows us all how dishonest and in the tank for the Democrats, that section of the media is and these are the pre stage so called publications like The New York Times and The Washington Post and NBC and CBS, they just don't do what they're supposed to do as journalists hold truth to power. They actually hide truth to protect power and that's what they were doing for Joe Biden because I guess they were so desperate to get rid of Donald Trump at the 2020 election that they were going to make sure that any derogatory information that came out about Joe Biden was buried.

You don't need to text anywhere to hear the great Miranda divine or read her terrific work. She's a New York Post columnist and author. Her latest book perfectly timed laptop from hell, Hunter Biden, big tech and the dirty secrets the president tried to hide any day. I can visit with Miranda Devine. I consider it a great day. Miranda, welcome back. Have you been? Thanks, my campaign. Well, thanks for having me. Well, thanks for all that you're doing to raise a level of awareness that I don't think we would have if it wasn't for your work. Here comes more breaking news. One of Hunter Biden's former business partners referred to Joe Biden as the big guy in a panicked message the same day the New York Post broke news of the laptop from hell left behind by the president's son. I gotta just start on a personal note with you. Are you mad? Are you angry that outside of the New York Post, the mainstream media is avoiding Joe Biden's relationship with his son hunter and hunter's business dealings like the Bubonic plague? Does that infuriate you? I'm not sure anger is the right emotion, but it certainly baffles me and worries me because I guess it just shows us all how dishonest and in the tank for the Democrats, that section of the media is. And these are the pre stage so called publications like The New York Times and The Washington Post and NBC and CBS, they just don't do what they're supposed to do as journalists hold truth to power. They actually hide truth to protect power. And that's what they were doing for Joe Biden because I guess they were so desperate to get rid of Donald Trump at the 2020 election that they were going to make sure that any derogatory information that came out about Joe Biden was buried..
New Survey Reveals Democrats Want to Abolish Supreme Court
"A new survey just out reveals that a majority of Democrats. Want to abolish the Supreme Court. No, this is actually not a joke. I'm looking at a report by Miranda Devine in the New York Post that gives us the details and not only do a majority of Democrats feel this way, but as we'll find out in a moment, a majority of young people, 19 to 39, also feel this way. Supreme Court is racist, sexist, and ought to be abolished. The poll done, by the way, by the heartland institute. And what do these people want to do with the court? No court. So we only have two branches of government, just in a legislature and executive. No, they actually want to have quote a new democratically elected court. With justice chosen by the American people. Justice is chosen by the American people. So in other words, I mean think about that. If the American people are choosing the justices, then we would in a sense have do legislatures. We have a democratically elected legislature, democratically elected court, which serves as a kind of super legislature, and then we have an executive. Also democratically

"With us right now is a phenomenal patriot, she's super smart and is shaking the matrix. There's a lot happening. I think it's because of her reporting and because of her book that we're starting to see some rumblings from our federal law enforcement agencies. In the direction of Hunter Biden with us is Miranda divine author of the plainly titled but accurately titled book the laptop from hell, Miranda, welcome back to the Charlie Kirk show. Thanks so much. Charlie, great to be with you. So tell us the book is out I've heard some amazing things about it and so tell us what the reaction has been. Well, look, it's been a bestseller, sold a lot of copies to people on our side of the fence, but really there was this wall between conservatives and people who are, you know, perhaps Trump voters who didn't vote for Joe Biden. And the people who read The New York Times and watched CNN and MSNBC and just were kept in the dark by their favored organs before the election. And until 17 months later, last week, The New York Times broke that wall, just a little, just a little chink by admitting that yes, the laptop from hell, Hunter Biden's abandoned laptop is real and they had authenticated emails on it. I mean, we did that 17 months ago, you know, basically the New York Post that was your previous guest, Emma Joe Morris, my friend, my colleague, she did a brilliant job of doing the due diligence that was necessary. And we also had Charlie Bobbie linsky, who you didn't need the laptop. You could just talk to Tony bubble linsky who was a very is a very credible businessman who got caught up in the Hunter Biden mess and a patriot, a naval veteran. He offered himself to the media and gave a press conference before the election after the New York Post story first came out. And no one was interested. They just dismissed him. They ignored him. We didn't. We published the material that he gave us, which was, you know, it corroborated what was on the laptop and it augmented it. And then there was the chuck grassley and Ron Johnson inquiry, which already about a month before we published that stories had already started laying down the paper trail, the documents that showed all this millions of dollars ended up being tens of millions of dollars coming out of Chinese and Russian and Ukrainian shady coffers into the bank accounts in America of Joe Biden's family members and their business

"Need her? Where's comedy and satire when you need it? Now, coming up, yesterday, this week, The New York Times with a bombshell report confirming, you know, you understand the mainstream media didn't even want to discuss Hunter Biden's laptop and pretended it didn't even exist. Well, lo and behold, The New York Times did a deep dive into the Justice Department's investigation of the president's son hunter, not only did they verify the existence of hunters, laptop from hell, as Miranda divine put it, the great Miranda divine. That's the name of her new book, laptop from hell. They also confirmed the authenticity of the emails. Well, the New York Post Miranda Devine and others have been reported on this for over a year. We remember what Twitter and Facebook did in shutting down the New York Post for reporting on what The New York Times reported this week. We're going to talk to the lady of the hour, the person herself, the great Miranda divine from the New York Post, taking a victory lap next. Here on the Mike Gallagher show, in the relief factor dot com studios. We live stream the Mike Gallagher show on rumble dot com and Salem news channel dot com. Don't miss Mike's facial expressions and other video clips you hear during the show on Salem news channel dot com and rumble dot com. I will follow anywhere that you tell me to if you need you need me to be with you. I will find. The Mike Gallagher show. No one denies that Russia is a chem bio program. That's bad. No one denies that Russia lies, of course. That's not for debate. The question is, why is the United States funding these bio labs that are not doing anything close to what The Pentagon claims they are doing? Why is The White House press secretary from the podium contradicting what the director of The Pentagon's bioweapons control program has already admitted is true. In the relief factor dot com studios. Here's Mike. As we continue here in the relief factor dot com studios for a Friday, we were looking for Australian victory music where Miranda Devine, you see her all the time on Fox News, you read her in the New York Post. She's a New York Post columnist and author. She's got a book coming out. You want to talk about splendid timing, Miranda's book is called laptop from hell, Hunter Biden, big tech and the dirty secrets the president tried to hide. Welcome Miranda back to the Mike Gallagher show because wow, you talk about vindication. I guess The New York Times, the unlikely suspect, to vindicate you, Miranda, and vindicate the New York Post and the reporting that you guys have been doing, is there Australian victory music we could have been playing for you to take your victory lap? Hi, Mike. Let's look, I think a lot of military music would be good, a lot of marching music. Yes. A lot of Trump sounded like a lot of brass, a lot of brass. Well, congratulations. Here's the article from The New York Times. Headline Hunter Biden paid tax bill, but the federal investigation goes on, do tell. I mean, I start to read this article in the times it turns out that The New York Times has confirmed the existence of the laptop. The New York Times confirmed the authenticity of the emails, the sordid scandalous emails. This is what you guys have been saying and what Miranda Devine, you've been saying all along, it's got to feel pretty sweet to have this sort of bombshell revelation produced by this deep dive investigation by The New York Times. Well, it's a bittersweet Mike and I note that it took them 24 paragraphs before they actually acknowledged that the laptop was real and that the emails on it were real and they had confirmed that they were real. So now it has The New York Times imprimatur, maybe the rest of the media will stop calling our story unsubstantiated in a conspiracy theory as they've been doing for the last 16 months. And you know, New York Times certainly came to the party, but pretty slowly. It is 16 months since we published our initial stories written by imager Morris, my brilliant colleague. And front page story showing that Joe Biden had met with Hunter Biden's overseas business partners, at least one of them at that time, the guy from the Ukraine from that corrupt energy company burisma, Joe Biden's campaign denied that, said, no, it wasn't true. And then later on, you know, I kicked on scouring the laptop and found that, in fact, it was a dinner that Hunter Biden organized in Georgetown in 2015 for his father then the vice president to meet a number of these overseas business partners from Russia from Kazakhstan and from Ukraine. That was also denied until finally, The Washington Post tried to do effect check on my story. And The White House admitted, well, yes, Joe Biden, he did pop into that dinner but only for a short time and not for any nefarious purposes. And note The New York Times today also admits that yes, Joe Biden did.

"Do not be surprised. And I'm going to make a prediction here that ahead of the midterm elections, Merrick Garland deploys Department of Justice, federal shock troops to battleground states and for swing states that are necessary for Republicans to take back the Senate. Do not be surprised if Merrick Garland does a press release in June of this next year and says DoJ to send 2000 election observers to Maricopa County. Now, the election observers will not be there to try to catch fraud. No, they're going to be there to see whether or not mail in ballots go to every single person. It's the opposite. They're bringing election observers in to make sure the fraud goes untouched. Do not be surprised that for Herschel Walker Senate race, which he's already up on Rafael Warnock significantly, Trump endorsed Herschel Walker Heisman Trophy winning Herschel Walker, probably the second best running back ever in college football history. Jim Brown than Herschel Walker Simon close. Where Herschel Walker is going to be in a very tight Senate race, tons of money will flow in. Don't be surprised when the Department of Justice announces, hey, we're going to come bring in federal troops to try to make sure that we get what we want on the ground. And what is the word that that lunatic said on MSNBC? It's an emergency, of course it is because now we have set the precedent that all you have to do is use the E word emergency. You can shut down the economy. Emergency, everyone gets a mail in ballot. Emergency we're sending in federal troops to make sure elections are done the.

"Biden and his partners. So it goes three pieces of the jigsaw puzzle really give you a very disturbing view into the whole scheme, how blatant it was, you know, it wasn't very sophisticated. It was really just Joe Biden sort of tammany hall shakedown of donors and corporations in Delaware that wanted favors from him in his powerful positions in the Senate as over the years he was chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee chairman of the Senate foreign relations committee, gave him a lot of pull in Delaware and he'd always managed to get for his family. These grifters, everything that was a magic carpet ride they had had a life of immense entitlement and privilege they had any Ivy League college entries, judge Glock ships, jobs, government sinecures, inflated salaries. Whatever they wanted, the Biden family got. And he just internationalized that. And the most damaging to America, of course, is the Chinese grift and the Chinese influence selling. And we know, for instance, in 2013, Joe Biden brought his son hunter to Beijing on air force two for his meetings with president Xi Jinping and the top authorities in the Communist Party of China. And we also know during that trip that Joe Biden went into a private meeting Chopin's with Hunter Biden's new business partner there in China and that a few days after they left China that Hunter Biden became a 10% owner of this Chinese company, BHI investment fund, which in 2019 had $2.5 billion worth of funds under management. Now, he's still owned that. In effect, he was in partnership with the Chinese Communist Party, the last time I looked in September, his lawyer, his new lawyer, has told The New York Times more recently that he divested himself of that 10% share. Now I can't see evidence of that. His company scanned allies. It's still listed on the Chinese corporate registers as a 10% owner. Schneider's is still listed in Delaware, but it's listed as being on the Delaware corporate register as they dormant or licensed revoked, but that's for I think not paying yearly Jews. So I don't know whether he really has sold his 10% or not. And when Jen Psaki was asked by the New York Post Washington correspondent Steven Nelson, just a few days ago, she refused to answer and she referred all questions to Hunter Biden's lawyer who does not answer questions from the New York Post. So we're none the wiser and it's outrageous that The White House does not come clean with the American people. If Hunter Biden has solved his share, he should be telling us how much more and who did he sell it to and when. Well, there's so much more we can even get into this and it's just the surface. It's laptop from hell by Miranda Devine. I wish we had more time left to have you back on soon and it's just the fact that there hasn't been widespread criminal investigations into this. Bad for the country. It really is. It's just bad for our country in more ways than when Miranda, thank you so much for joining us and being so generous with your time. Thanks so much, Charlie, great to be with you. Thank you. One of the best books ever written in recent times is age of entitlement, I encourage all of you checking by Christopher Caldwell. It's terrific. I read it in like a week and a half. Very busy. You always trying to prep for this show, try to read a book a week to our best to try to do that. So Caldwell argues in the age of entitlement that there was a great game that was played. When we passed the Civil Rights Act, that's not to say that they were not changes that were necessary. There's not to say that it was all bad. But there was a rather aggressive, almost like a square peg through a round hole. Style posture that was taken by the Civil Rights Act regime to make the federal government the enforcement arm of anti racism. Now, I know some people that believe that was perfectly fine. That it was the right move to use federal troops to desegregate schools. I actually probably sympathize with that to be perfectly honest. I think it's a civil rights issue. But when it started to get tricky, it was when all of a sudden private businesses were going to be forced what to do. It also went so far so dramatic that all of a sudden the definition of civil rights was expanded beyond anything that everyone could have imagined. It was more than voting rights. It was more than access to representation at the polls, but also it became into private interactions. Well, because of the expansion of the power that was given to the Department of Justice and with it, an entire civil rights kind of monstrosity, a machine that was created, we have seen the past couple decades, the unintended consequences of such a regime. And no one should be surprised now when you have people on MSNBC suggesting that the federal government should now send troops to take over elections in states, or they might require voter ID. Get cut 91 ready, in cut 91, some lunatic that shouldn't be allowed to get near political power. Says that the federal government should now use troops to take over elections and states if they don't allow mass mail in voting and if they dare purge their voter rolls. No, this is where this is going. You see the left is now realizing that they have to embrace and use political power to destroy you. Play cut 91. This is an emergency. And I know this is something that hasn't been done in 56 years, but you know what happened when the federal government said, hey, Brown versus board of education. We've got to integrate schools. They sent troops. They sent federal officials to places and said, you will let black children into school. This administration can say, we have concerns about how elections are being conducted in this particular state. We're going to send officials down there. We're going to send election observers. If we think that people civil rights are being violated, we will do a federal take. We'll do a federal takeover. Thankfully, the constitution was written for people like him, but the Civil Rights Act and the whole regime that followed, it set that precedent and this is where this is headed..

"Know is that, first of all, that Hunter Biden was being paid $83,000 a month by the corrupt Ukrainian energy company, burisma during his father's vice presidency. And after Joe Biden's term ended, his pay for sitting on the board of burisma was cut in half and we also know that there was we actually know this from the Johnson grassley report that $3.5 million was funneled into the bank account of an associate or business partner, Devon archer of Hunter Biden, by Elena bacher, who is the Russia's richest woman. The wife now we know of the corrupt former Moscow Amir. And we also know that Hunter Biden met Elena batter just a few weeks after that money hit the bank account. He met her in como at village, which is a gaunt beautiful mansion hotel luxury hotel on the shore of Lake como, which is a haunt of corrupt oligarchs from around the world. And we also know that he was doing the bidding of the Ukrainian owners of burisma in terms of the owner Michael is logistic was in trouble because he had been the former energy minister of the Russia aligned Ukrainian government that was ousted by the maiden revolution with the help of the United States. And he was under investigation by Interpol by the British and in conjunction with the FBI. And they had frozen his bank accounts in London with millions of dollars in it. And in Ukraine, the chief prosecutor was also investigating him for corruption. So he needed to have some intervention from the most powerful country in the world. America, to try and call off the dogs. And this was why he hired Hunter Biden and debona archer to sit on his board. Really hunter was not qualified for this job. He was a raging crackhead at the time as well. And all he had to do for it was show up once a year to Monte Carlo or Paris or some glamorous destination for a board meeting, but there were also emails from his handler at burisma basically laying out the demands which were that he had to get important people in the American government to sing the praises of burisma to sing the praise as I was, and this was really quite disturbing to some lower level members of the State Department of officials of the State Department in Ukraine, who tried to warn Joe Biden's office. And in fact, in one case, one low level staff was on air force two with Joe Biden going into Kyiv one time and he actually confronted Joe Biden quite courageously and said to him your sons involvement with this corrupt energy company is causing a problem for America because we are trying to impose these requirements on Ukraine that they can only receive USA if they stamp out corruption. And yet your son is diluting that message at the very least. Well, nothing ever happened. Joe obviously told hunter to make this official because there is a record in hunter's diary of a couple of meetings with him in a couple of phone calls. But the Hunter Biden continued to earn money from burisma, it didn't stop his behavior at all. And the most disturbing part of the burisma equation just to end is that Joe Biden boasted that he had forced or pressured the Ukrainian government of president Poroshenko to fire their chief prosecutor a man called Victor shoken and Joe Biden said that he had threatened to withhold $1 billion of USA that Ukraine desperately needed unless shoken was fired. And Joe Biden explained this as saying, well, you know, the prosecutor is corrupt. And he wasn't investigating corruption, which I think is so important. And what really was happening was that Victor sharp and the prosecutor was investigating burisma. And a few days before he was fired, he had or a few weeks that might have been. He had seized property belonging to burisma's owner, mansions in Kyiv, plots of land, even a Rolls Royce silver phantom. And also Victor and the prosecutor has given to all the former prosecutor has since given interviews in Ukraine, which didn't get much attention here, but saying that his next protocol was subpoenas for Hunter Biden and his business partner, Devon archer, and Joe Biden's intervention, the president of Ukraine Poroshenko was very reluctant. There are phone leaked foreign conversations between them at this time, which I have in the book, which show that parish and who did not want to fire Victor shoken. He said there was no evidence of any corruption and Joe Biden insisted and several glory of phone calls in that period really desperate to get shot and fired. Finally parish and go reluctantly fired his chief prosecutor. And of course, then the job went to a politician, the investigation against burisma was very quickly wound up with a $5 million fine. That was it. So that money that burisma paid to Hunter Biden was well worth it. Well, obviously. And I mean, it was an investment to try and protect their entire scheme, but it doesn't just stop with Ukraine. It also, the one that is the most interesting that the laptop revealed that we weren't ever allowed to have a discussion with while we were experiencing the horror of a virus from this country is the Tony bobulinski kind of Chinese issue. Whatever happened to Tony Bobby linsky. He's just gone back into his normal life of obscurity. He really is an American hero, Tony boba minsky, a navy veteran, a successful businessman in his own right was sort of dragged into this Hunter Biden Joe Biden influence peddling scheme. And sort of realized, I mean, he was brought into legitimize it and exert proper corporate governance on this new joint venture with China. But he soon found himself in this just complete mess, a total disaster. And regretted it, but to his great credit, he stood up before the election and he said he amplified our story that had been sent and said, this is true, Joe Biden is the big guy. He met with me twice. He is the patriarch and the instigator, the orchestrator of this international influence peddling scheme that was enriching the bidens at a great cost to America's national security. And the laptop is not enough. I look at it as a jigsaw puzzle when I was writing the book. It's part of the jigsaw puzzle, but a big part of the jigsaw puzzle is Tony bob linsky in the contents of his three phones that he handed over to the FBI, which contained what that message is and documents and emails and so on, which I have and which overlap with a lot of material and confirm and verify a lot of the material on the laptop, but also augmented and then a third piece of the cheeks or puzzle is that Johnson graslie Senate report because they had treasury documents these suspicious activity reports showing the sort of money that was coming in from suspect sources overseas into American bank accounts that were associated with Hunter.

"And former high ranking defense people like Leon Panetta and Michael Hayden, James clapper, who all should be ashamed of themselves. They published a letter in political, which was a propaganda document lying in saying that this laptop and our reporting by extension had all the hallmarks of a Russian disinformation operation in their expert opinion. And then they admit down the bottom of this ridiculous letter that they had never even looked at the laptop. They really had no evidence. It was just the guesswork. And that was a very valuable document to further just completely crush the story. And to assist Joe Biden when he went up against Donald Trump in the last debate. And he this letter had just come out and as soon as Donald Trump raised it and said, you know, raised the story that we published and said, you know, they're saying you're a corrupt politician, Joe. What do you say to that? Joe Biden immediately went into high umbrage mode and cited this leisure and said the intelligence community has pronounced that it's Russian disinformation. You're the corrupt one. And it worked. It absolutely worked to charm for him no more questions were asked and the story was buried. And we know from polls that were taken media research center did polls after the election that almost half of Biden voters didn't know about the laptop scandal didn't know that was under investigation. Yes. And one tenth of those, if they had none would have changed their vote and in an election that was won by 45,000 votes in a handful of battleground states, that could have made a material difference to the outcome. It's one of the great interferences of elections we've ever seen. It's almost it's almost hard to even comprehend. You have a new article out. I want to ask you about the kind of ties into some of the work we're doing, at turning point USA. We have a big event coming up America fest. We'll have over 8000 young people young conservative people in Phoenix, Arizona next week. You say thank goodness for these right thinking Gen Z saviors. What do you mean by that? Well, it seems that Jen D is the generation that edge 9 to 25 who have grown up with the Internet and a cell phone in their hand and they're able to I guess find their own information and they're more skeptical about what they're fed the mission narratives from the media than their sort of millennial seniors and elders and certainly the boomers and gen X they seem to be more savvy and more willing to think for themselves. They've been fully brainwashed or attempted to be indoctrinated by their schools often by their parents as well, to sort of the left leading notions. But they can see the reality before them. And they are not trusting other authority. And they are more trusting of their peers. And I think that's what you guys do at turning point USA. It's what this group that's sort of colonized TikTok today in America is America has done as well. And that's just harness the power, the intellect, the inquisitiveness and the energy of this enormous group of voters that are coming of age. Certainly by 2024, we know that Gen Z and the millennials will be the largest voting block. And I think it's so heartening to make them. You know them you're with them all the time with turning point USA and turning them on and switching them on to the reality of politics and life and they see I think in a way with Joe Biden's. I mean, it's been terrible for America. He's presidency, but also it's been a real red pill moment, especially for young people in the pandemic. You know, they've been the most damaged by the lockdowns in the closures and the curfews. Their generation, their high school, their school, their their college, their futures have all been ruined. They at a time when they want to socialize and it's so important to them to be with their peers. They've been isolated, causing mental health issues and so on. And yet, this is a virus that doesn't hurt them for the most part. I mean, they're the least affected by the virus. And so they have been expected to make these enormous sacrifices on behalf of all the people or a base people who are affected by the virus. And I think that there is going to be a backlash coming. You see all the people scolding young people for not kids at school for not wearing their masks properly or they're not getting triple vexed. And you know who's selfish these people are calling young people selfish whose selfish that I think Gen Z has borne the brunt of the pandemic while being the least affected. And has done it pretty uncomplainingly. And their inheriting a world that has been is basically scorched earth. The institutions and the moral capital has been squandered by their forebears. And now we are relying on Gen Z or will be relying on Gen Z and young millennials, I guess, to rebuild those institutions and there's a lot on their shoulders. But I think, you know, from what I've seen, I mean, my children are Gen Z I have enormous faith in them. I think they're, you know, there's that old adage, hard times, makes strong men. And I think we're certainly in hard times and this is a very strong generation. Well, I hope you're right. I pray you're right. I see it both ways. I get to see the insanity of the indoctrination from Gen Z but I totally agree that there is a there is kind of this rejection of the lockdown forced vaccination. You've stole my entire future away. And there is some, you know, contradicting data out there of whether or not they want to live in a society that actually respects their individual liberty and freedom. I want to believe that there is some polling out there and I don't really trust the polling, but that shows that in some ways we're creating the generation after Gen Z might be one that is totally different than Gen Z, much more safety focused, but you have 17 year olds in college that are being told 18 year olds in college you have to wear a mask all day long and for a virus that isn't going to significantly impact them in any way. Miranda, there is a increasing amount of chatter about the Russia Ukrainian issue. And it begs the question any time this kind of surfaces, what capital flows existed or exist between the Ukrainian government or the Ukrainian power structure and Hunter Biden? What do we know as far as money that Hunter Biden received from Ukrainian oligarchs, gas companies, and even Russian, as well? Please explain. Well, there's less money coming from Russia and Ukraine that's evident on the laptop and in the bob linsky material than there is from China..

I was so excited to get this account, but not so fast. We bid $1 one cent per hat. They went to China for 98 cents per hat. Three cents per hat was the loyalty folgers had to go to China. That's how they treated a small company in their hometown. China got rich off of deals like that two cents, three cents, one cent. No national loyalty, no commitment to your fellow countrymen just profit seeking enrichment. And you know who else got rich off China?

Thanks so much. Charlie, great to be with you. Thanks for having me. So your book is doing very well, laptop from hell, very direct to the point. Tell us how the book is doing. Remind our audience kind of how and why you wrote it and then I want to talk about Biden's connections to China. The book's done very well. It hit number one on Amazon day one. And I ended the week number two overall. So I think there's a hunger out there for the truth about what was on Hunter Biden's laptop. At the New York Post, we tried. We image our Morris, my colleague, wrote some brilliant stories, three weeks before the election last year with some of the most damning emails about Joe Biden that were on the laptop and which were denied by him and which showed that he had met Hunter Biden's business partners, something that he denied during the election campaign. So I think that people want to know one way or the other, and I've tried to write it not as a polemic, but just as a straight piece of reportage. Using not just the laptop, but information from Tony bobinski and also from the Senate inquiry by chuck graslie and Ron Johnson. Yeah, and I hope if Republicans take back Congress, they will depose Hunter Biden for some of these questions. This very serious stuff. So let's separate some of the kind of chatter online fact from fiction. There are some people that say on the laptop, there were potentially compromising or illegal images. Is that true? Did you find that in your journalism looking into this? The very least there were probably some unsavory images, but tell us a little bit about that. If you are referring to the chatter online about pedophilia, could affiliate images. No, I didn't find anything like that. I mean, there was a photograph of a young girl aged 13, 14 at the time. And this was obviously taken in like a school bathroom with some friends. They were all putting on makeup in the mirror. She's seen in the background getting changed. And the image just captures part of one of her breasts. And that was, you know, enough to scare Rudy Giuliani and Bernie Carrick. Rudy Giuliani when that picture was brought to his attention by one of his staff that was going through the laptop. He asked Bernie Carrick if this was a notifiable image in terms of you have to notify the authorities if you find child pornography. And Bernie Carrick former commissioner of police said, yes, under New York law, technically it was. So that frightened both of them enough to take a copy of the hard drive and deliver it to the Delaware police. And they were being scrupulously careful in that case. I've written about that. I think that that is one of several images, not several. Thousands of images that were downloaded onto will upload it into the cloud as part of a family sharing situation of photos. And there were a lot of pictures of children from school outings and various things that kids do with their friends, sporting activities, and so on. That really had nothing to do with time to very childish stuff that was just part of, again, his big part of this family sharing operation. I think they were downloaded onto his laptop, which had tens of thousands of images. Some of which were just completely random and had nothing to do with his life. So I've laid that out, but I don't see any evidence that Hunter Biden has a taste or an interest in underage women, all the sex, he filmed himself having sex with hundreds of women and somebody uploaded onto websites like Pornhub, but all these women were fully grown. So none of the others, some doctored images online. I think there's and I don't like dishonesty being reported about the laptop because there's such wrongdoing on the laptop. And if you make up something or you exaggerate something, you're taking away from the wrongdoing that does existence for which there is evidence. No, I totally agree. That's why I asked because there's so many rumors and nonsense and chatter at times. And so let's just talk about the significance of this. Here you have a laptop from the now president's son that almost no one in the media cares anything about. I mean, you've been in this world for quite some time. Can you talk a little bit about this before we go into more of the details of just how extraordinary the effort has been to ignore this? I mean, it takes more effort to ignore it than to report it. It really does. We saw that when the New York Post first published it in October, we saw the heavy hand of big tech Facebook and Twitter came down and centered it within hours of it going up online. And that gave an excuse to the Biden friendly media, the anti Trump media to then ignore and introduce our reporting. And then on top of that, you had this extraordinary intervention by John Brennan, the former CIA director and 50 of his fellow former intelligence.

"Most awesome pipes in dark radio, so bastion gorka. And we're back with the New York posts but random divine. What is it that surprised you or what aspect of this story hasn't been adequately discussed to date? I think probably the biggest thing is and it was something that when I discovered it, again, from putting those jigsaw puzzle pieces together, I sort of had to step away from the computer for a while and shake my head. I couldn't believe what I discovered. And that was that Hunter Biden and Jim Biden were riding in the middle of this enormous energy deal between China and Russia. It was the marriage of China and Russia, which would have had enormous geopolitical consequences. It was a tectonic shift in power relations in the globally and would have been very detrimental to America. And this was a deal that CEFC brokered, which was between China was buying a big chunk of rosneft, which is the Russian state owned energy company. And Putin was sort of forced into this by sanctions that Europe and America placed on him after the downing of MH 17 with the Ukraine. So this was sort of a marriage of necessity from Putin's side and opportunity side. And it was only stopped. And Hunter Biden was right in the center of this knowing about the meetings being told about when G is going to win the CFC chairman's going there and so on. The only reason this was foiled was because the Trump administration came in and Jeff Sessions in the attorney general had a remit to stop China shenanigans. And the southern district of New York, then arrested Patrick Ho, one of the business partners from CFC and that through the whole thing into disarray and of course the chairman of CFC eugen Ming then disappeared in China. That's what hunter was referencing at the beginning of that voice memoir that you just played. And he left behind, of course, he's a huge real estate purchasers in Manhattan, including that $54 million penthouse in the limestone Jesus in the middle of Manhattan where he ensconced his wife and his two kids and his mother in law and his cooking is made and so on. And but he disappeared and has never been seen again because that was a great embarrassment to president Xi. And they had to quickly pull apart CFC with defunct and China had to pay Russia an enormous amount of compensation. But it was good that that deal was foiled because the last thing we wanted was for China and Russia to be in charge of the energy dynamics in globally. But that was what the president Joe Biden was part of that deal. CFC. He was going to when he retired from being vice president. Hunter had organized for him to have an office in Georgetown with his nameplate on the door with hunter and it said CFC America. And foiled by the southern district of New York by Jeff Sessions by Donald Trump. But that really was frightening to see that such a bumbling crackhead and a bumbling person like Jim Biden, Jim and Hunter Biden were right there in the center of this enormous deal that has so much influence and potential for damaging all our lives. It's truly truly shocking. I think that's all the more reason why everybody has to read this book the laptop from hell. Something else that's truly shocking. And I apologize to our listeners that I'm going to have to switch topic. But I have to, because I can't let up an opportunity to have a quasi antipodean with us after what we've witnessed occur in Australia in the last few months. People having to escape from COVID camps last week. We can get back to the book. We can talk about sci-fi and anything else in the last few minutes we have here. But Miranda just helped me for two minutes. What is going on in Australia? I mean, I've been to Australia. I grown up with Australians in the UK. There's some of the toughest SOBs on the planet. Have they died out? Are you now a nation of snowflakes that he's fine with being locked up by petty bureaucrats for the rest of eternity? Look, I mean, there are a few things that you have to understand about Australia. Unlike America, there's no Bill of rights, American didn't have Australia didn't have a war of independence. And so there's much more sort of trust, I guess, in the government. Firstly, secondly, the worst of the images in the VDR is that you are saying of real totalitarian crackdowns. It's coming from one state called Victoria, most of it from one state, Victoria. And it's like, you know, California and New York on steroids. You know, we call it the socialist republic of Victoria, the premier is a socialist from the socialist left of the Labor Party. But he's popular. He's incredibly popular, but also in Victoria is the biggest pushback. I mean, that had the biggest riots and so on. Where I'm from New South Wales, the largest state is like Florida,.

"Welcome back to America first one on one with Miranda divine. Miranda, what the book is now, everybody has to get laptop from hell. Let's start with not what you found out and what's on the laptop from hell. As a journalist, let's start with the media's handling of it. The even the amazing cover of the book, Eric, if you could bring the cover up again, even the cover of the book is from a photograph from Hunter Biden's collection of his not exactly PG rated material that if you posted these photographs during the campaign, you were censored Twitter, Facebook would delete or block your account because of your use of these photographs, which in no way shape or form were stolen or doctored. So talk to us as a media professional about the way the Hunter Biden story has been handled by the legacy media and also from the subtext of your book's title, social media's significant handling of the story. Thanks. Sebastian, that photograph on the cover is actually a hunter to selfie taken on one of his benders in Vegas lying in bed at the palms casino, and one of his numerous visits to debauchery. And look, it was incredible. I guess I wasn't surprised at the hostility to our reporting back in October of 2020. Imager Morris wrote a magnificent story that very first day on October 14th, 2020, which was distilling, I guess some of the most pertinent emails that were in the laptop and that Rudy Giuliani had given us and that Rudy Giuliani and his lawyer had spent many weeks digging through and finding what they thought and bringing to our attention what they thought were the most obviously. Problematic emails for Joe Biden. And the one that we've chose to run with on that first day was an email from hunters Ukrainian benefactor from burisma, which was a an energy company corrupt energy company, which was paying him $83,000 plus a month to do not very much to sit on its board. And the dim positives are riding to hunter and emails saying thank you so much for letting me make your father last night in Washington. And so this flew in the face of Joe Biden's frequent refrain during the campaign that he knew nothing about his son Hunter Biden's overseas business dealings. And that was a lie. He lied to the American people

"A witness without telling me. And criminal case and my father what a delightful and his father, who's his father. Yes, that's haunted Biden talking about Joe Biden. Welcome to friends. This is America first one on one with me, your host Sebastian gorka from a strategist of president Trump and member of the national security education board. What a delightful chap talking about his business partners, including the effing Chinese spy chief and his other business partner with his $54 million home who just happened to disappear. What does it all mean for America? Let's ask a lady who's written literally written the book, by the way, thank you to the national pulse for that audio cut. It is, of course, from the laptops from hell and we have a new book which is called the laptop from hell by the New York Post and Fox News's Miranda divine a woman who I knew her when. Yes, I knew her before she was famous. I met her in Australia and now I'm so excited to have her on this side of the planet, Miranda. Welcome to one on one. Thank you so much, doctor gawker. Lovely to be with you. All right, we have so much to discuss, including our mutual love of all things science fiction, whether or not the dune remake is any good. But first things first for our millions of listeners and viewers across the nation, please tell those who may not have been familiar with your work before you bribed in America who ran the divine is where she came from and what she's been doing until she published this superb book. Well, I am actually an American citizen. I was born in Queens, New York. So I'm a New York native. But obviously from my ex and I've spent quite a lot of time elsewhere and so I've spent, I guess, the last I went to university here, but I spent the last 25 years in America. And so I in Australia. I get mixed up. I'm in the transition. Well, they both begin with a. They're both speak English, a kind of carry on. Anyway, so and I've been here for three years in New York working for the New York Post as a columnist. And very exciting time, I guess, but also rather a devastating time because we had the election campaign. We've had the election and we've had the pandemic. We've had the riots. New York, in particular, is almost unrecognizable from what it was back in 2019 when it was still, you know, fairly broadly and not so crime ridden as it is now. And it reminds me very much. I lived here back in the 80s with my parents. And it reminds me very much of those bad old days pre Rudy Giuliani, the legendary mayor who cleaned up New York. And for Peter you can't do that again, because I don't know what the Eric Adams is going to be able to do that, but certainly the build de Blasio just presided over a complete disaster. Yeah, absolutely. It would be wonderful if a Rudy Giuliani with 20 years younger in could come back and instead of having to investigate the fraud of the last election could revitalize New York as he did before. We're going to talk about your book the laptop from hell, momentarily, but first things first, I remember, so I met you, what is it four years ago? 5 years ago, my son was working in Australia and I went to visit him and then we skipped it over the water a little bit to do The Lord of the Rings tour in New Zealand, loved it, went back to Australia, had dinner with you and a good buddy there in Australia. And after that, managed to get this fabulous gig to come back to America and to cover the elections for the New York Post. And then you became a commentator of note for Fox News. So let's start there. Let's talk about coming from Australia here to cover the elections, talk to us about what happened three years ago. Was it as you expected and how problematic to use the left wing phrase? Is the state of politics in America today? Well, look, I mean, America is the center of the universe still it's Rome. And although things are powerless at times, when I arrived the economy was booming, all the sort of Trump policies were working brilliantly and despite the fact that his administration had been hobbled from day one by the Russia hoax and unremitting hostility from most of the media. And but it's interesting that during the election campaign, you know, there was a wide open democratic field and I went to New Hampshire and went to Iowa and watched everybody apply their wares. And at no time, was there any indication that Joe Biden had a chance? He was fable then. He drew lackluster crowds that were so small and puny and ridiculous that it became like a standing joke for reporters on the campaign trail. That you know how many people were at Joe Biden's little thing, three people. And the other thing that was noticeable even then was this is you talk about on the campaign trail basically like 2019 early 2020. Joe Biden everywhere he went Kelly prompt would arrive. And these were for standard stump speeches that every other candidate could just do in their sleep. And he was always very late for these town halls or whatever they were. And at the time, people I remember sitting in a town hall, I think it was in probably in Manchester New Hampshire. And he was very light and I just remember when he came in he was a bit befuddled and I just saw people exchanging looks with each other. And I interviewed a few of them afterwards, and they said, well, you know, we just came to keep the tires and see how he was doing and you know he's just no good he's past it. And in fact, when they voted in the primaries, I interviewed some people at school and it was incredible the number of people that were sort of being kind about Joe Biden, these are Democrat voters, but just said they couldn't bring themselves to vote for him because they didn't think he had it. And remember, he was sort of close to the bottom. And I were,.

"Podcasting right now the book laptop from hell by Miranda Devine flying off the shelves number one all over the place Miranda thanks for joining us again We really appreciate it Thanks Dan really nice to talk to you Yeah good to talk to you as well and congratulations on the book just a monster monster success I knew it would be when we had you on last time I said I thought it was the most important book of the year and I was not being hyperbolic about that So a couple things about the book and the Biden family and just the disturbing revelations in there You know Miranda my takeaway from the book is about Joe Biden himself who puts a guy like this Hunter Biden his son who he knows well it's his son obviously What kind of guy puts a kid like this Hunter Biden in this central position in these mega business deals with corporations and businesses all over the world knowing he's got this troubled history It's just it speaks to Joe Biden as much as it does to hunter's character You've absolutely nailed it Dan that's the overriding impression that I had was what kind of a father puts the sun with these addiction problems in front of gushing torrents of unaccountable cash And that's what he did at Hunter Biden is even admitted that in his memoir earlier this year beautiful things in which he talks about that money that came from burisma was like play money He said it was $83,333 a month And he didn't have to do anything for it and he said that really that was what led to him falling off the wagon and really indulging in his crack addiction And I think when tens of millions of dollars of ill gotten gains are coming into your bank accounts And you have an addiction problem What are you going to do And I mean it destroyed his marriage He had a really lovely wife and three quarters girls And he's like just unraveled from there on So and the other thing about burisma was that as soon as his father stepped down from being vice president was Margaret out obviously Hunter Biden's 83,000 plus salary from burisma went down to half that much It was cut in half Just crazy Yeah We're talking to Miranda the vine author of I'm telling you the most important book of the year It is a must read and that's putting mildly laptop from hell pick it up today laptop from hell about the Hunter Biden fiasco You know Miranda one of the things I also I find troubling with the book is the man obviously Hunter Biden had no requisite skills for the positions he was taking whether it was a burisma or a negotiations with China and some of these other companies and even some of these other business deals It was clear as day to anyone involved that this was an influence peddling operation which I think the book is as much a criticism of the media whether implied or intentional is it is if anything else because these facts were out there and you did yeoman's work putting it all in a book for everyone to see footnote in everything They were avoiding this story for a long time and candidly they still are This has been going on since the beginning of Joe Biden's career really I mean he's the center of the Delaware He won the election when he was 29 years old And from then on because Delaware is this unique state in America where so many corporations are headquartered there because of its tax laws but mainly the opacity of its corporations law He had really a lot of power in the corporate world and he was also very powerful positions on both the legislative affairs committee and the foreign affairs committee And he was faced by these corporations and these donors gave him lots of money and also other things such as grace and favor jobs for family members especially hunter And so Hunter Biden was given inflated salaries and from that money very early on straight out of college he was expected to pay bills for the rest of the family And so there were stories along the way and even The New York Times have stories I mean Byron York did some brilliant work which I thought in the book on Joe Biden sort of real estate purchases which were very dodgy back in the day MBNA which is a credit card company in Delaware board a house from him a lot higher than comparable houses nearby An executive of theirs And so there was there was quite a bit of reporting done not enough in my view But I think that influence peddling is a Washington disease It's just that Joe Biden was better than anyone else I think he's probably the most skilled practitioner of it Up until the time he became vice president in which case he just was in a class of his own because he internationalized that sort of Delaware centric influence peddling operation that he was running with his family This is his brothers and his son And he brought it to the parts of the world that Barack Obama had given him carriage for a particularly China Russia Ukraine All these places where he represented American power and prestige Joe Biden was sort of treated as a bit of a joke around Washington But when he flew into Ukraine on air force two he was a real power magnet He had a $1 billion worth of USA that he could hold over the head of the government of Ukraine which was desperate for money because they'd just been ripped off by the previous regime And so whatever he said would go And the power really went to his head And he became very blatant about exerting his influence and the famous photographs of had to fly into Beijing with his father President on air force two to meet president G and all the great and the good of the CCP That story was 9 And Peter Schweitzer a deep writer a great book about the bidens and the clintons and everyone else And he referenced that sort of influence peddling operation going on there But not many other people really followed through on that And there were reporters who went on that trip With Joe Biden and they didn't really make much of this story And during that trip Joe Biden went and had a secret meeting and shook hands with one of hunters new business partners men called Jonathan Lee who took him into a 10% ownership of a basically an investment fund that in 2019 had $2.5 billion worth of funds invested And that was basically Hunter Biden The president's son in partnership with the Chinese Communist Party because these gigantic banks and state owned enterprises They don't do business with anyone I mean this is a deal that Goldman Sachs would kill for Hunter Biden is near fight who's never really held out a proper job in his life And he's a crack addict So somehow seem to these connections And it sort of so obvious But I guess no one really had the receipts and the good thing about the laptop is that it actually has the receipts And when you combine what's on the laptop with the 12 of intonation that Tony bob linsky provided to us basically emails and documents and so on which cross match a lot of them with the documents on the laptop but also add more And then there's also another tour of documents with which Peter Switzer and Matthew time and got from Cooney who was one of a jailed former partner of Hunter Biden given archer And he's quite a grieved in jail feels that the others got away even though hunters not been implicated in this Indian tribal bonds ripple And so he provided all his information his emails and so on to those two journalists And Matthew kind enough to share some of that with me And then the other piece of the.

"Some of these situations which Hunter Biden literally involving some pretty sleazy people who I would imagine would would put him into some very uncomfortable situations right Well basically thanks to Joe Biden Hunter Biden was introduced to the inner sanctum of both president Xi of China and Vladimir Putin in Russia He was mixing with the oligarchs who were at the very top of both of those power structures both in Moscow and in Beijing and in Shanghai His father introduced him to those people In fact in 2013 when Joe Biden was vice president he flew hunter on air force two with him to Beijing for a series of meetings with president Xi and the big weeks there in China And he also was introduced at that time to one of Hunter Biden's new business partners because a few days after they left Beijing hunter of course the deal was signed and delivered on a basically a fund and investment fund that would grow to by 2019 have $2.5 billion worth of managed funds funds invested in it And the Hunter Biden still owns 10% of that business It's called bhr And you know that means that the president's son was in business with the Chinese Communist Party
