      The problem is, there are double standards going on. We will find out soon enough how fake or real the story really is, but its not a good precedent with regards to censorship.

      1. george

        No it won’t be soon enough. Trump’s people have put out this story weeks before the election to seed doubt by the time it has been thoroughly debunked it will likely be after the election.

      2. Anomanomanom

        But this particular story has links to Russian interference , has already been disproven and yet people in trumps administration are still spreading it. So it’s a very good thing to block it.

        1. E'Matty

          Please provide your evidence of “links to Russian interference”. Please also provide your information “Disproving” this story. We have yet to see the emails verified through metadata so they could be fabircated, we don’t yet know, but you seem to believe we have actual evidence proving these emails false. Please provide this evidence/information.

          1. Anomanomanom

            There are plenty of threads on twitter showing all this, also the fact the rudy posted about this a year. He didn’t even bother deleting the tweet.

          2. E'Matty

            @ Anomanomanom – ok, then it should be easy for you to find some evidence then? Please provide it.

    2. E'Matty

      1. How do you know this is fake news?
      2. Who gets to decide what is and isn’t fake news and thereby ban and block information from the public?

      1. Johnny

        He needs some new material and cash,desperately.If Biden came out today publicly admitted to every half baked Ukraine story,it would not move the dial.
        Joe has half billion cash on hand is Covid free,Trump is broke deeply in debt attempting with Rudy/Bannon some old plays,its like been forced listen or hear your dads music tastes or lack of once a week,private companies don’t censor only govts do,the meta story is rubbish.

        1. Junkface

          Yes there seems to be mentions linking Guliani and Bannon all over this story, so that immediately harms credibility. Bannon has just been charged with Fraud, Guliani is bonkers/senile and paranoid. Gulaini has been caught with very dodgy Ukrainian agents with Moscow connections, who were actually charged with fraud earlier this year.

          1. Johnny

            yeah the insufferable alcoholic uncle,relying on outdated sexual tropes,if he can’t even protect his own family….very few wealthy people are catching Covid in states,cities are on pause everyone in the country except the poor.
            Cuomo for AG-fredo’s bro and future potus candidate ,it’s payback time Donny.

        2. Mick

          its like been forced listen or hear your dads music tastes or lack of once a week,
          Are you telling me my kids don’t like my music taste???

          1. Johnny

            Ones views are colored by ones own experiences,there’s only so many Sunday’s that Elvis sings gospel is welcome and appropriate,oh like Easter,but quite a few republicans will be crying in their chapels shortly.
            Some the trolls on here follow a throw enough s*it at the wall or shotgun strategy to competitions,flood the zone with bs,I’m more a sniper but have no idea your tase in music,I’m sure it’s a highlight of the kids week:)

        3. E'Matty

          ok. That’s all well and good but you haven’t provided anything to prove this is fake news. The onus clearly rests with those making the claim that it is real to prove as much before we take it seriously, and that remains to be seen, but you have made a determinatin that it is fake already based on nothing much but your own political musings.

          1. Johnny

            The only reason hunter was involved with Ukraine is influence peddling,that’s not in dispute.
            Like the “sheet these are private companies with the right to ‘censor” wtf they like,just ask bodger.
            People aren’t so much voting for Joe,Hunter is not running no one cares.
            He’s broke his campaign is broke,he has no counter punch no cash to deflect the sheer weight of money against him,it’s not in favor of joe nor supportive of hunters grift.

          2. Nigel

            No, that is not the onus, the onus on them is to get it into the news cycle for as long as possible before moving onto the next one. The media is crying out for something to say about Joe Biden that’s equivalent to Clinton’s e-mail thing, and these grifters will keep trying to supply it until something sticks. There is no good faith here, and ganting an assumption of good faith where none exists is only a pretence at objectivity, bad journalism, and bad consumption of journalism.

          3. Johnny

            Nigel Twitter is not real life,it’s in the media interests to have a close race.
            NBC created the broke billionaire,they are now continuing by giving him a platform tonight to counter program,if he gets more eyeballs – likely- that will be the new meme.
            Second debate was scheduled this eve-the sheer volume and arc of this cash flow is jaw dropping,hate is some motivator,R’s are wondering if there’s a bottom !
            But it’s still not real life-Covid is ripping through the heartland or fly over states,leaving a trail of dead bodies and broken dreams with his base of papi like trailer park trash.

          4. Nigel

            Yes, Johnny that’s what I was saying, thank you. Ratings and big rallies are all Trump has left in terms of campaigning, for actually winning there’s voter supression and the electoral college system.

          5. johnny

            there is a bar in New Orleans called the Christmas Tree Lounge,its a locals only joint, but every day of every night-its open 24/7-its Christmas Eve.
            last time this edgy,rock n roll chick who moved like a feline, elegantly rose from her bar seat,dropped a quarter in the juke box and shook her ass to this while mouthing
            …where do we go now…where do we go now…..

            oh sweet chid-grow the fook up.

      2. Anomanomanom

        First off the story is ludicrous, if you believe it I geuinely feel sorry for you. Secondly its over a year old.

        1. E'Matty

          one doesn;t have to believe it. That’s quite different from making a determination that it is false. We simply do not know yet.

          1. Anomanomanom

            They do know, I can post pictures in replies but the meta data posted on twitter proves the whole story is bs.

          2. Nigel

            You can play Mr Objective all you want, but this is one of those situations where you’re just refusing to check if it’s raining. More broadly speaking, the public is not well served by media presenting information and disinformation equally and letting the public make up their own minds – who has the time, the energy, the resources or the will to do that? Oh yes, news organisations.

            Facebook and Twitter are awash with misinformation. This is one high-profile incidence of a piece of disinformation being removed from a platform. In other words it was so ridiculous and so high-profile even twitter decided to back off – which of course, gave the right a ‘we’re being silenced!’ hook, but feck it they’d have said that anyway when the story fell back in the rear-view mirror. Personally I’d love to see those responsible face some sort of consequences for concocting such a fraud, that would be a refreshing change.

        2. Joe Small

          The New York Post is a Murdoch-owned rag that specialises in sliming Democrats.. I think its where Bodger gets his editorial views though.

    1. Johnny

      Not at all,the lefties are mounting a coup,place is filled with incredible resolve to get rid him and yes some optimism ,tech firms have bought manhattan.
      I’ve spent quite bit vacation time in South,Charlestown has a fabulous foodie scene and Savanah is where you find women who know the words to guns and roses songs,like dive bars and real men,this is just incredible the weight of leftie cash.
      Lindsey begging again on fox,joe has half billion cash on hand,20 days to go.

    Rich kids truly are a burden on the wealthy. They are almost always screw ups, only when the parents decide to give their kids no special help, be extra tough on them, no daddy’s credit cards, do they manage to become normal adults without serious addictions.

    …or else they become megalomaniacs and obnoxious a- holes like Trump

  2. baz

    Joe Biden is a terrible human, a hair plugged, face lifted fraud.

    The FBI aided Joe Bidens 2020 Democratic primary campaign by burying Hunters laptop discovery and its contents, just as the FBI aided Hilary in 2016.

    rotten.

    1. Junkface

      The FBI helped Hilary Clinton in 2016? Then why did James Comey (CIA) go and sabotage her the week of the election, handing it to Trumnp? Were the CIA and the FBI opponents in 2016?

      Trump also has bad plastic surgery, pouts like a vain moron and has a head full of Donkey pubes combed over.

        1. Junkface

          My mistake. Comey was FBI, but that makes even less sense now. Comey wrecked Hilary’s campaign on the week of the election in 2016 and you say the FBI helped her? How?

          There is no logic there Baz.

      1. italia'90

        I wouldn’t be too sure about FBI v CIA but I’m 100% sure
        it was to do with Lawyers releasing Weiners emails to SDNY.
        Because you’ve asked the second question,
        I am led to believe you have not read the last few reports.. The McCabe Text files
        on what was going on in Sept/Oct 2016 and how the FBI were
        slow walking the investigation of new evidence which forced
        Comey to reopen the HRC email investigation?
        The FBI in NY[FBI – NY ADIC] requested from Comey to
        obtain a search warrant from Main Justice In DC (my guess requested by McCabe)
        to obtain emails from Weiner’s laptop as a ruse to stall the evidence becoming public.
        But Comey sat on this for nearly 4 weeks before Loretta Lynch intervened and forced him to go public with the new evidence.
        These are the infamous Hillary/Huma Abedin emails from Huma Abedin’s husband Anthony Weiner’s laptop BTW…
        BUT and this is the big BUT
        They didn’t need a search warrant.
        SDNY were already in possession of the emails,
        Weiner’s lawyer already had handed the new emails over to Southern District of NY.
        So no warrant needed.
        Why would they, Comey and McCabe, pretend they needed a search warrant?
        Draw your own conclusion.
        There’s a lot of lies and misinformation in the media about this,
        but those are the facts and that’s what matters.

        1. Nigel

          None of this comes across as aiding Clinton. There was absolutely nothing to the whole thing, the investigation and the coverage were equally overblown, deliberately, to harm Clinton. The FBI in NY were acting as Giuliani’s personal anti-Clinton hit-squad. It was unseemly. The Weiner laptop had nothing to do with Clinton, which made Comey’s letter a rather naked intervention against Clinton.

          1. italia'90

            “None of this comes across as aiding Clinton”
            Only to a disingenuous, partisan, disinformation hack like yourself
            would this be true.
            It took 4 years to find out about the facts surrounding this dirty trick by Comey, McCabe, Strzok and Page.
            Corruption investigations take 3 to 4 years to bring to trial.
            Biden is the subject of a corruption investigation in Ukraine right now.
            I hope he wins the election.
            However, He’ll be impeached within 2 or 3 years based on the facts already
            in the public domain.
            Now put all your opinions in the sea.
            You’re done here.

          2. Nigel

            None of the Trump administration investigations into this have gone anywhere. Two more of them were quietly closed just this week, so being under investigation to please Trump is not indicative of anything except Trump’s abuse of power. Biden’s only getting impeached if the Republicans take the House, and that’s not going to happen. Manwhile, a sub-investigation started by Mueller just showed that in 2016 Trump received a massive illegal donation from Egypt.

          3. Junkface

            @italia90

            There’s a lot to process there, but I have also seen some reporting that throws out a lot of those theories. I’ll have to see what Saagar Enjeti reported on this topic, he is really sharp and actually centre right.

            Wasn’t it also a fact that Trumps team have repeatedly tried to pin lots of this stuff on Hilary and it has been swatted away every time by the legal teams? Seemingly it does not hold water, otherwise Hilary would have been charged.

            *PS – ending a comment against somebody with “You’re done here” is a bit douchie

          4. italia'90

            @Junkface
            What theories are you referring to?
            I’ve summarized the facts in relation to the
            latest revelations with regards to McCabes texts from 2016.
            The FBI have been in court fighting to keep these texts hidden
            from public viewing.
            I’m not making any of this up, it’s all available now.
            Nigel would have countered with other facts if he had any, but he didn’t.
            He just gave a partisan view which is typical of Nigel when ever the Democrats
            and particularly HRC are mentioned on here.
            And you’re right, it was douchie. I could have said similar about your mistake, but there ya go.
            Have a read of this article, it goes back to the start of the HRC email affair and cuts to the heart of the whole cover up by FBI and assorted political apparatchiks.
            Then compare Nigel’s reply that begins “None of this comes across as aiding Clinton”.
            You can decide what you want to believe about who is reporting facts or opinions.

            More articles to read below, but there is so much more to this, especially the motivation of Weiner to disclose these new emails and what skeletons he has and knows about that frightened the FBI into trying to cover it up…
            Why did Weiner go to SDNY and not the FBI?
            Did he not trust them?
            Did he use them for leverage in a plea deal?
            Will we ever find out?

            Unfortunately, this isn’t the end of this sideshow.

          5. Nigel

            There is nothing there, Italia. Endless investigations that come up with nothing. Same as this Biden story, except once the focus moves off their blinding white-hot hate of Clinton, the Republicans efforts are half-hearted at best.

    2. Nigel

      So in the run-up to the Primaries, when the Republicans were trying to smear Biden via his son and the whole Ukrainian thing, which lead ti Trump’s impeachment, Giuliani had a copy of this email and didn’t use it? And yes, Comey was FBI, so the question of how, exactly, the FBI aided Clinton still stands.
