      Suppose, just suppose that you want Joe Biden to be your candidate for president, and you realize that the Rethugnican Party is willing to do almost anything, including attempting to bribe a foreign government to interfere in the US elections (something I frankly find treasonous).

      Now, suppose there is a way to ‘slander’ him and his family that is virtually guaranteed to turn off a number of blue voters thereby suppressing the vote for blue candidates all over.

      And you find that the Democratic Party is more than willing to hand them such a thing. To wit:

      U.S. Republican senators ask Treasury for any reports on Hunter Biden

      A peachy little article from Reuters. I’m not even going to read it, myself. Why bother? The damage is going to be insane over the next ten months or so.

      How the fuck do you get a board position on a Ukrainian energy company making 600 k a year if you have zip knowledge of the energy production company and/or any experience in Eastern European business structures or models?

      Be the spawn of Joe Biden, of course.

      How entirely delicious. He can spout all the top 1 percent versus everyone else shit he can muster, but THAT is gonna stick like epoxy. Like the Rethugnicans doing the searching, I just know they gonna find some real dirt there somewhere. It’s inevitable.

      Remember, it’s what people PERCEIVE that matters, not what is true.

      Stupid and DNC are pretty much interchangeable.

        DNC stupid?  No, just corrupt to the point of not caring.

        When the going gets tough, the tough help each other.

          If there’s one thing we can learn from Rudy Giuliani, it’s that people can be perfectly stupid and perfectly corrupt at the same time.

          The democrats are corrupt, certainly… but they’re also pretty stupid. They have no ability to adapt when things don’t go their way. They just assume it will, and keep assuming that even when it doesn’t. They make little to no effort to cover their asses, instead relying on “but we’re not Republicans!” to excuse their larceny. They can’t even figure out how to get the agendas they WANT instituted, because of their incompetence and lack of intelligence.

      Shades of Hillary.

      Somehow they think the appearance of corruption won’t matter as long as it’s technically legal.

      They don’t seem to understand that that’s not going to cut it anymore….

      Never underestimate your foe. Once it became clear

      to them that Biden could fail for several reasons. and

      that they needed to groom the Buttgeek (my guess) to

      replace him, they needed the impeachment to weaken

      Trump. They also needed to concentrate the public’s

      attention away from the empty and shallow debates,

      in order to eliminate any advance of Bernie or Tulsi.

      They knew the media would comply, which they did.

      Will this backfire? I think so, but -again- I don’t

      underestimate them.

      Well, if it comes from the DNC office, you can expect it to smell far worse than a dead cow in the middle of the road.

        Ever play the game gallina where you have to touch a cow that died like a week earlier and it’s really ripe???

          @sffh Nope, but I got chased by a longhorn bull once. Cleared an 8 foot fence getting away from the giant charging thing with pointy tips on his head. Does that count?

            Nope. You have to smell it to understand.

            And see it. Spectacular. The cow, I mean.

            That reminds me of being chased all over the front yard area by a fucking turkey of all things. At grandma’s place in Alamosa.

            Fucking thing hated me or something. Musta been real funny for those not getting chased cause they were rolling on the floor laughing at me.

            Thinking about it, I’d take the turkey over a cow mit horns any day.

      Burisma, the company in question, is widely regarded as hopelessly corrupt.

        Don’t the conservatives always try and tie one person to crime by association with those that are actually criminals???

        However you look at this, it’s going to sting big time.

      Meanwhile, the Biden campaign is still debating before rolling out Joe’s inspiring  new slogan. They’re torn between two options.

      Yeah, but…
      or
      Aside from that...

      I will give an analogy.

      As a candidate, Hillary could read the names and numbers out of a phone book and the financial institutions would still pay her a quarter million to “listen” to it. Actually, they couldn’t give a shit about what is in her speech. They only care about access and influence. Notice that as soon as the value of that access is wiped out due to her election loss, the Clinton foundation is rapidly going broke. This, my friends, is a very good example of quid pro quo and how it can all go bad in an instant. Regardless, the partisans at SV still refer to Hillary’s bribery as a “lecture tour”. Good God. The point is, we don’t care if oligarch legislators have made such practice legal. It is still corruption and bribery. Still unethical. At a very minimum, still horrible political optics.

      Believe this. Hunter Biden will go the way of the dodo bird as soon as his pappy is out of the political picture. For now, he is the latest poster child for rampant beltway corruption and is certainly not “off limits”.

        I would add one thing to this.

        Hypocrisy.

        Joe is a total hypocrite and now it’s going to be front and center for him.

        The Democrats are past masters at crying fowl about corrupt activities of a type they themselves practice.

        To wit:  the chorus of outrage at Natalia Veselnetskaya offering Russian dirt on Hillary Clinton to Trump campaign officials, while the DNC paid a foreign intelligence agent for Russian dirt on Donald Trump.

        Also to wit:  the chorus of outrage at Trump using the office of the Presidency to influence the Ukrainian government for personal gain, while Biden used the office of the Vice Presidency to influence the Ukrainian government for personal gain.

        And so on.

        The problem with this cannot be dismissed with charges of ‘whataboutism.’   To point these things out is not to say that Trump’s transgressions are mitigated by previous Democratic actions, but rather to underscore how Democratic allegations of impropriety and related attempts to impeach/prosecute are fatally flawed because their hypocrisy can be turned against them.  It can be used (justifiably) to point out that the Democrats are engaged in a purely partisan power play.

      The funny thing is, Trump got what he wanted so badly after all… Bad publicity for Biden. He really could have found a less risky way to have this out there than extorting a foreign leader to announce it.

        Yeah, that’s the strange part.

        He’s got all kinds of adds here attacking Torres-Small. Why not set the attack dogs on Hunter?

        He didn’t have to become a traitor to the US by bribing a foreign country to influence our elections.

          @sffh Stupidity. Trump’s really that stupid. To Trump, this is his reality TV show, with him starring as the wily mafia boss who has become Emperor of the American Empire by his own sheer genius. If you look at Trump’s actions through this lens, everything he has done makes perfect sense, and is usually perfectly predictable.

          Trump’s not Putin’s puppet. Putin’s just smart enough to figure out how to predict Trump’s reaction to any given situation with something like a 95% accuracy rate. If I can do it, Putin probably can as well.

        @Flying Squirrel:  Trump is a singularly inept statesman.  His electoral success is a result of a singularly ignorant citizenry.

      The scenario you describe has been a predictable probability for a long time.

        I’d like to know just when Hunter got recruited for the board seat.

        Then correlate that with daddy Biden’s decision to run, and if anyone in the DNC knew of leetle hunters escapades beforehand.

          If they knew,they probably didn’t care.

          Hunter’s not the only one  among the elite who has sat on corporate boards  or gotten other jobs with no qualifications.Hillary herself did it when she was on the board of Wal-Mart for no other reason than she was the governor’s wife.

          Jenna Bush and Chelsea Clinton both have had sinecures at NBC.

          The system is so mired in stuff of this kind that they don’t see anything wrong with it—even if we do.
