A whistleblower from inside the Internal Revenue Service has spoken publicly for the first time about a highly sensitive political probe he has supervised, which CBS News has determined is the ongoing probe into the finances of President Biden's son Hunter Biden. He said he became so concerned about prosecutors' handling of "a high profile, controversial" investigation that he felt duty-bound to sound alarms.
A popular tactic of American politics, especially on the left, is to attack the character of those with whom you don't agree. This was evident with the recent show "Clarence and Ginni Thomas: Politics, Power and the Supreme Court," which PBS aired on May 9. A PBS producer emailed me last January about a planned documentary on the life and legacy of Justice Thomas, who used to work for me. The producer wrote that she wanted "to speak to those closest to him to present a nuanced portrait," and she would "therefore like to request an interview. I agreed to an interview that lasted an hour and a half. That was my mistake. The resulting show was far from nuanced, and it wasn't really a documentary. It was a two-hour hit job on the character of Clarence Thomas.
...Let's go back to 2016, when the FBI was investigating both major presidential candidates in the run-up to the election. At the time, the bureau was looking into Donald Trump's campaign's ties to Russia as well as Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server when she was secretary of state. In July of 2016, FBI Director James Comey announced that no charges would be brought against the Democratic nominee. Then, eleven days before the election, he said that in light of new information having surfaced, the Clinton investigation had been reopened. Finally, on November 6, two days before Election Day, Comey announced that the matter was closed"again. To this day, Democrats remain convinced that Comey's second to last announcement"which, we can all agree, was ham-handed"cast a pall over the campaign, tipping the scales in favor of the Republican nominee. It's a neat story. But it's only half of it.
Most media coverage of the Durham report is preposterous, and becomes more so if you read the highly detailed 306-page document. In its initial coverage, for example, The New York Times went out of its way to emphasize that the report relates to failings inside the Federal Bureau of Investigation that had already been exposed and thus contains little that is "new." Most coverage failed to relay details and facts from the report, preferring to instead spin the spin ... .
Institute hosted a "Hack-and-Dump Working Group" exercise in the summer of 2020 titled, "Burisma Leak," which predicted with uncanny accuracy an upcoming derogatory story in the New York Post about Hunter Biden's lost laptop.
The documents Shellenberger published showed how at least five media figures, including David Sanger and David McCraw of the New York Times, Ellen Nakashima of the Washington Post, then-Daily Beast and future Rolling Stone editor Noah Schactman, and Rick Baker of CNN worked alongside Twitter and Facebook's chief moderation officers, Yoel Roth and Nathaniel Gleicher, to plan a response to a hypothetical damaging expos about Joe Biden's son.
It's no surprise that black business owners are taking this position. Florida is a business friendly state and their lives have not been negatively impacted by DeSantis policies.
The FBI has changed how it counts incidents. Historically if they were investigating a militia group with several members it was one case with sub files for each militia member. Now every member is its own case It's done to try and drive up domestic terrorism numbers. It justifies more unlawful surveillance.

No capitol cops were murdered. Not one. That day was bad enough, no need to lie about what transpired.
The only reason I created this thread is because I was absolutely floored that one of our Pravda media outlets reported on it and it wasn't just some blurb on 20A.
#7. I don't know if he's to be taken seriously or not.
I find it revealing that you immediately write him off - that everything he's testifying must be an absolute lie.
#110. On the contrary. When of my favorite leisure activities is reading and my wife and I frequently donate to our local library.

I gave you a newsworthy flag for that.
To the rest of the lefties here - please don't hold it against Whatsleft that I gave him a positive flag.
" Point at what?
Laugh at what?"
At truthhurts crying like a little girl over a few books being moved to a different shelf in the same library.
You have less control over your emotions than a 15 year old girl on her period. It really is pathetic to watch you get all outraged over moving books to a different shelf in a library. Although I must say Yav gives you a run for the money on the out of control hysterical girl act.
So now moving books to different shelves in the same library is banning books. Take a step back and look at how utterly ridiculous that is.
He's not a citizen and i just read his charges have been reduced to a single count of degrading property. This whole thing is strange.

You've got far bigger things to worry about than a poem being moved to a different section of a library.
I did a little more digging. The library is shared between the elementary school and the middle school - so it wasn't even removed from the library. It was moved to a different section.
I'd characterize it as anti misogyny.
