Big Tech Desperate to Suppress Bombshell News in Hunter Biden Ukraine Scandal

Posted on | October 15, 2020 | No Comments

 

Wednesday morning, the New York Post broke a huge exclusive: Emails between Hunter Biden and Vadym Pozharskyi, a top executive at Ukrainian energy company Burisma, in which Pozharskyi thanks Hunter for arranging a 2015 meeting with then-Vice President Joe Biden. How the Post obtained these emails is an interesting story, but liberals rushed to claim that either (a) the story was Russian disinformation or (b) the emails were obtained illegally, or maybe (c) both. The telltale clue was that the Biden campaign did not exactly deny it; they issued some kind of weasel-word press statement, but more importantly, they exploited back-channel influence to try to suppress the story:

Facebook and Twitter limited the distribution of a story in the New York Post about a purported email between Hunter Biden and an adviser to a Ukrainian energy company.
The 2015 email indicates that Vadym Pozharskyi, an adviser to Burisma, thanked Biden for “giving an opportunity” to meet former Vice President Joe Biden.
The former vice president has previously said he has “never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings.” . . .
“While I will intentionally not link to the New York Post, I want be clear that this story is eligible to be fact checked by Facebook’s third-party fact checking partners,” Facebook spokesperson Andy Stone tweeted Wednesday. “In the meantime, we are reducing its distribution on our platform.”
Twitter issued a statement about the incident after Fox News reached out about the story, claiming it took action against the article due to the company’s “Hacked Materials Policy.” Twitter is blocking the post from being shared on its platform.
“In line with our Hacked Materials Policy, as well as our approach to blocking URLs, we are taking action to block any links to or images of the material in question on Twitter,” a spokesperson said. . . .
New York Post op-ed editor Sohrab Ahmari criticized the move in a Wednesday tweet, saying, “This is a Big Tech information coup. This is digital civil war. I, an editor at The New York Post, one of the nation’s largest papers by circulation, can’t post one of our own stories that details corruption by a major-party presidential candidate, Biden.”

Some accounts were actually suspended on Twitter, including the account of White House spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany, for sharing the story.

John Hoge points out how Twitter has gone all-in on censorship, including suppression of congressional Republicans, to stop this story.

Why does this story matter? Matt Margolis explains:

The emails were found amongst “a massive trove of data recovered from a laptop computer” that had been dropped off, possibly by Hunter Biden, at a repair shop in Delaware. The Post reports that “other material extracted from the computer includes a raunchy, 12-minute video that appears to show Hunter […] smoking crack while engaged in a sex act with an unidentified woman, as well as numerous other sexually explicit images.” The computer and its hard drive were seized by the FBI in December.
Joe Biden has repeatedly claimed to have been unaware of his son’s business dealings.
“I never discussed a single thing with my son about anything having to do with Ukraine. No one has indicated I have,” Biden claimed last year. But his insistence that he was in the dark about Hunter’s Ukraine business dealings was contradicted by Hunter himself. According to an article in The New Yorker from July 2019 titled, “Will Hunter Biden Jeopardize His Father’s Campaign?” the former vice president did discuss overseas business dealings with his son.
A photo obtained by Tucker Carlson Tonight back in October 2019 also showed Joe Biden and his son Hunter golfing with Burisma Holdings board member Devon Archer. The photo was taken in August 2014, a few months after Hunter Biden joined the board of Burisma.
During the Council on Foreign Relations meeting in Washington, D.C., in January 2018, Joe Biden infamously bragged about his role in the firing of then-prosecutor General Viktor Shokin, who had been investigating Burisma.
“I was supposed to announce that there was another billion-dollar loan guarantee,” Biden explained. “And I had gotten a commitment from Poroshenko and from Yatsenyuk that they would take action against the state prosecutor. And they didn’t. So they said they had — they were walking out to a press conference. I said, ‘Nah, I’m not going to — or, we’re not going to give you the billion dollars.’ They said, ‘You have no authority. You’re not the president. The president said —’ I said, ‘Call him.’ I said, ‘I’m telling you, you’re not getting the billion dollars.’ I said, ‘You’re not getting the billion.’”

This is not, as Democrats claim, a trivial “distraction.” For three years, Democrats pursued a witch-hunt against President Trump over claims of “Russian collusion” that proved to be a hoax perpetrated by the Clinton campaign with the assistance of high officials in the Obama administration including former FBI Director James Comey. Meanwhile, you see, Democrats were concealing their own real “collusion” scandal.

Do I need to explain why this matters in terms of the current presidential campaign? Trump was elected president as an “outsider” candidate, in opposition to Washington insiders. The Hunter Biden scandal is the tip of a large iceberg of corrupt influence-peddling that has been allowed to fester in our government, and if you want to fix what’s wrong in Washington, Joe Biden is definitely not the man to fix it.

Joe Biden is the problem, not the solution. Keep calm and vote Trump.
